@MrSelf-Destruct: You get instant video? I must be on the student deal then.. Dunno why I thought they didn't let people using the student promo access that...

@MethodManFTW: Yeah, dude, I've been watching the shit out of Eastbound & Down and Boardwalk Empire. :P

I'm pretty sure we used to not have access to it, but then it changed whenever they did the price increase. I think.

Went to the gas station to get some laundry detergent and a swisher... Forgot both.

I wear my backpack with my ipad in it with some big DJ quality Sony headphones hooked up to it.. Normally I just listen to podcasts but I was listening to my music while I was there and when I was checking out it was the loudest most violent part of Bitch Please by Eminem.. Oh boy that was awkward.

Played some Destiny. Pretty rad I guess. I wish Dinklage sounded more into it. Movement feels just a slight bit off, but it seems all MMOs give me that impression.

I've seen several people say that Dinklage sounds like he's there for the money but secretly loathes video games. He's probably just not used to voice acting. I imagine it's hard to judge your delivery without the instant feedback you get on a set. Either way, what a waste...

Anyone here ever try Jade Empire by Bioware?

#1858 Edited by MrSelf-Destruct (13110 posts) -

@LightR: I bought it the other day, always heard good things. I'll try it out tomorrow and let you know.

Finally got my took the time to sit down and get my Assassins Creed II platinum trophy. All I needed was about 30 feathers more.

Sounds good. When people meniton Bioware I've never heard of Jade Emipre so I wasn't sure if their other games were a lot better and only just outshine it.

Lol that's pretty weak dude.

And yes Jade Empire was awesome. I've been waiting for forever for BioWare to make a sequel but by now it just doesn't seem like it's happening. Definitely a great game though.

@commonfate: welcome back!

so i started my save up of Mass Effect 3 on PC again last night.. God damn that looks good on PC.. Stupid bioware points never going on sale. I saw the entire Mass Effect trilogy is on sale at GMG for 10 bucks... I bought the Levitation DLC for 10 bucks last night. -__-

Weird day yesterday, I bought some Origin DLC, bought a game on uPlay, and bought both the Kane and Lynchs on Steam.

So, I gave it a go. Looks nice and has remarkably fluid movement and combat for a game its age. The combat is real-time kung fu stuff; punches, blocks, dodges, and some magic attacks. Great stuff. It's an old Bioware game, so I'm sure the story is amazing. The launcher kept crashing, but I renamed a couple executables and got it run. Supposedly the GOG version doesn't have this problem. You may be able to pick it up for a crazy discount in GOG's summer sale, which is on right now. I've seen several $20 games on there for $2. There are new sales every hour, so keep your eye on it. Anyway, get it! Seems like it'll be great.

I love love love heist games, but god damn the shooting in 2 feels like shooting air guns.. I only played like the first five minutes so hopefully the guns start feeling better, though who knows if I'll ever play them... I could get the pair for 2 bucks so I said what the hell..

there's a part in 2 which is really weird and iirc they used it it the demo. you play as a naked kane/lynch (i don't remember which is which) covered in cuts, running through the streets of tokyo or w/e. also, the ending of the game is the hilariously abrupt, and that's all i remember about the game.

I'm so disappointed in their coverage of E3 and any other artices they put out in the meantime - absolutely nothing.

See, to me, what made K&L 2 so amazing was that it played out like the craziest night of an insane person's life, a night on which said insane person is hopped up on PCP and set on fire. It was just crazy shit and more crazy shit and then it was over, and you didn't know whether you were really pleased with yourself for making it to the end or just relieved that it did in fact end. And the gritty camera effects complimented that little joy ride through hell perfectly. It looks like you're being chased by a VHS recorder the whole time.

The only reason i watch the E3 live show is because of Aron Waters and Danny O'Dwyer

Great finale for GoT. I loved how they handled pretty much everything. The only except being Brienne stumbling across Arya and The Hound and the 2 of them fighting, and that being the reason The Hound was too weak to continue. Some real touching moments like Jon burning Ygritte's corpse in her own pyre north of The Wall, and Dany chaining up her dragons was sad to see (does this happen in ADWD?). Tywin's death was perfect too. The thing that really interested me was Bran though. I'm really looking forward to reading his parts in ADWD and seeing where his stuff goes. Luckily I have pretty much 10 months to finish both books so I shouldn't have to worry about any more spoilers after I get it done.

Don't worry, we still have a good 4 or 5 big games that can be delayed til 2015. That should be enough news to hold us til the GDC. :P

Seriously, I think I'm a littler bitter. Delays never really bothered me before, but I was so excited for Arkham Knight. Dammit, man.

I likes the season finale, it answered a lot of questions and opened up a few more, but that's okay, because they're the beginnings of new journeys.

I liked it a lot. I'm glad a guy at my work is a GoT super fan so I can ask him a bunch of questions after every episode.

I love love love Game of Thrones but there is just too much going on at once for me to be able to keep track of it...

I think Vanessa Bayer of Saturday Night Live made a really funny joke about GoT. She just joined twitter and one of her first posts was something to the effect of "140 characters? What is this shit, game of thrones?". I laughed.

#1890 Edited by MrSelf-Destruct (13110 posts) -

So, apparently there is a thing you can do to unlock a bunch of graphical features in Watch_dogs that make it look like it did at E3, and it supposedly has minimal performance impact. My question is, why would they lock that stuff out and suffer all the backlash they did? I'm guessing they locked it out for the console versions and just never bothered to open it back up for another negligible-effort PC port.

EDIT: It seems that unlocking these features actually makes the game more stable and less buggy. Here's a link to the mod.
