RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS - FREE WHITE HOUSE MONTAGE

Recommended Posts

I never did buy GTAV, RDR was my last game from them, so I can imagine they've changed. Weren't those statements prior to the EA fiasco though? Loot boxes, preying on kids with gambling, and spending addiction is awful, but I think the industry is reeling that back now. I guess I didn't realize that GTAO became a full MMO though, I thought it was just drop in drop out co-op. The cease and desist makes sense when they are trying to monetize their own investment and mods are cutting into that, though I do prefer healthy modding communities so I'm torn between desire and realism.

 

Maybe I'm still hoping for the best, but I'll vote with my wallet for RDR2's campaign and won't touch any of the microtransaction aspects of it if it has nay. As someone that wants RDR2 that's better than a straight out boycott.

 

Ultimately I think we can blame the whales for the **** show that becomes many games these days.

I was extremely disappointed by a certain part in GTA V* and how Rockstar and Take 2 decided to threat modders so I am not hyped for RDR 2.

 

 

you get to send a message to Michael's son while you are playing as Trevor which goes something like this "smoke less weed, do more meth. You'll get stuff done". Promoting amphetamines in your game now?! Wow!

After a cursory research: He's a career criminal, an alcoholic, a drug addict, abusive childhood, etc etc. I don't know why you're surprised by him making a joke like that to a kid or why this disappoints you while playing GTA of all games. :p

There's hitchhikers around the road in GTA V who'll give you little side-quests if you pick them up. Trevor gets an optional objective for each and every one of them to bring them to a cannibalistic tribe in exchange for money.

The Vampyr soundtrack leaked.

I didn't listen to all of it because I didn't want to be too terribly spoiled in case I end up playing this game, but I did listen to like the first 7 tracks to get a feel. It's not quite dark ambience, because it's just a little too strong to qualify as ambience (which I actually like - too much video game music these days is just background noise). At times, it almost seems horror film or maybe a little Stranger Things-esque. Definitely does not hurt the game's case.

Looks like an interesting game, maybe on sale. $15 is too expensive :p

GTA isn't a game your supposed to walk away emulating, you enjoy it for what it speaks to. The absurdity to the limits of the American dream.

hah, always gets me when somone is 'shocked' about one aspect of game where you litterally drive over a hookers while shooting on police helicopter :)


I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

They do say in the splash screens that they do not encourage or endorse any of the behaviour in the game :p

I wonder which one gets you caught faster than the other: 

 

a. doing meth

b. running over a hooker with a car(let's leave the police helicopters out of this since they're so hard to find or shoot at)

So BG&E 2 is an MMO now?!

 

 

Count me out...

I don't want to seem like I'm picking on you, but the two games looking like day and night in the first trailer already wasn't enough to put you off? xD

They seem to have spent a lot of time making sure the lead lady spins that staff around, at least.

I love GTAV, I just stay away from the MP portion. The single player was fun, though not lengthy like Watch Dogs or Saints Row games. Still fun to just do sill things in the open world for no reason.

 

I imagine RDR2 will be similar in this respect.

 

 

 

I'm kinda disappointed with Beyond Good & Evil 2's direction, of course I cannot say anything of the quality (since it's not out) but from what I've seen, nothing looks relevant to the first game. Still, I'm going to keep an eye on it because it does look nice and it may actually be good.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...
