I'm too much of a SW nut to wait on BF2, but I will say that the gameplay in the first one seemed a little tighter, and I hate the way players and roll around the map now. I HATE that they got rid of Walker Assault, which was my favorite mode. I've played a few maps and they are fun, but my god is there so much crap flying around to distract you. I think I need to just get used to it, but it really is kind of a jarring change from the first.

Bulletstorm director commenting on the BFII fiasco

I'm gonna have to cut down on the coverage, most of it is going exactly where we think it is.

This was very fascinating. Love me some behind-the-scenes material.

Yeah, it makes me want to re-watch the Megaman/Anniversary episode. Think I will.

Also his recent episode about his and Mike's favorite game controllers. Man, seeing that GameCube controller brought back the memories! Made me want to fire up Resident Evil all over again.

^I was a Sega Genesis guy in the 90s and Playstation guy at the millennium so the SNes and Game Cube controllers have no real nostalgia for me. I do still think the NeS controller was a great one, especially for its day and it's square shape wasn't as uncomfortable as you'd think from the looks.

Sega was my thing as a kid, then SNES, Dreamcast and N64. I still have no idea how the hell I ever held the N64 controller in my hands and played well with it, because it's god-awful.


Anyway, Disney's Bob Iger apparently put his foot down on EA over the Battlefront II disaster.

edit -- This is basically what that phone call was like

It may be that Lucasfilm is responsible for the loot crate furor regarding Battlefront II, not EA/DICE

AVGN Episode 151: RoboCop games


Damn, I'm way behind in getting all of his episodes on Blu-ray. Looks like I'm gonna be double-bankrupt this holiday season.

Completed two auto rifle bounties in Destiny today, first gave me another Vision Stone, second one dropped a non-god-roll Doctrine of Passing (has Rodeo instead of Counterbalance). Don't care, I finally have one. If I get another with CB then good, otherwise I finally have the damn thing.

I'd like those, but since they seem to offer only a little more than is available for free on Youtube, I think I'd rather spend the money on something I have no access to. I do need to get a copy of the movie some day, though.

EA fired original Plants vs Zombies creator for refusing to add pay-to-win system

It's total bullshit that he lost his job, but thank god he stuck to his morals.

I've played the heck out of the first game (on XBL), but now I want to play it some more. Good for him.

Got surprised by Destiny 1's Crucible bounty rewards yet again. Since my first Trials of Osiris emblem dropped from one of Shaxx's bounties, I've been completing them in addition to the auto rifle bounties so I can get more Trials loot. Some of the stuff is forever lost (Adept weapons, ornaments, etc).

I thought one of my more coveted emblems was also gone for good, but I just completed the team deathmatch (Clash) bounty and my Hunter is now proudly sporting the Vigilant Disciple emblem. I was hoping for to have gotten that and the other cat-themed one, Bastet's Dream, directly from Trials, but now I actually have a chance at them!

Anybody else here playing Friday the 13th? I am part of a group that plays pretty much every Friday, some people play it every night. If you want to hook up my name is CPLCHUD.

If I ever do get a PS4 or XBox One, that may be the first game I get. Is there much of a single-player game? All I ever hear about is the multiplayer, but there are very few games I usually play with people online because I hate people to see how much I suck at games.

That would explain it. I didn't even know there were such games that you buy on disc (downloadable MNORPGs, sure). That makes me lose a lot of interest. I don't like the idea of a game that I can't play at all if my internet is down (which used to happen to me a fair amount) or I decide to skip paying XBL (which I've done before) or that people have to see me learning the ropes.

Meh, I should forget the current gen and spend the money on retro gaming.

The single player is said to be in development now, but yeah it's only multiplayer, and the general population on it is a cesspool, so I stick with a dedicated group of "casual" gamers who won't yell at you for stuff and are just on to have a good time. Adults only.

AVGN Anime Pt 2


Also:

1) Since I did this one quest in Fallout: New Vegas where I go to the NCR prison and help/betray the Powder Gangers, I apparently can't finish the Ghost Town Gunfight quest from the start of the game (it's some kind of glitch). When I tried to talk to the young woman who helps me early on, Sunny, she's on top of a rocky hill I can't climb and keeps drifting east. I managed to find her atop another area, but while trying to reach her, found her dog dead and just decided to basically abandon the quest. Sucks that even now the console version of that has never been patched up, and NV doesn't have access to console mods (which would disable trophies anyway, I'm sure). Gonna have to remember to do it right next time around.

2) Got another wonderful Trials of Osiris emblem from Destiny 1 Shaxx bounty. Now my Titan is also sporting a sweet symbol. Just hoping for one more and then I'm happy, but I also have my fingers crossed for the shaders I never got. Unlikely I'll get them, but a man can hope.

3) Gave up on Iron Banner in D2. Only got one piece of armor, the chest I needed for my Hunter, but still missing the helmet and legs. The drop rate is atrocious for me, and I can't even imagine what it'll take to collect the sets on my other two characters.

Wow, and I heard they refuse to turn them off now. Dummies, what a PR disaster. I actually like the game too.
