Fuck Best Buy's customer service

game doesn't work or something?

No, the douchebags that work at the Geek Squad keep chatting with the customers about WWDC and whatnot while the manager to work on (for some reason) works on fixing the customers' phones or whatever; they could clearly ring me up for the simple price match I need.

I'm giving them one more chance and then I'm leaving a scathing review for having shit customer awareness.

I hate the look of the OSX 10.10.

Why? I'm still all the way back on snow leopard because I'm lazy. :P

Looks cheap, something Apple is not or should not be.

How is maverick? I'm building a PC and i'm thinking of putting that on a second HDD since I prefer OSX for all things not gaming. It's free now and apple is letting people put it on things besides macs. since I prefer OSX for all things not gaming so I figure why the hell not.

Dunno. I haven't moved from Lion XD. Building a hackingtosh is quite easy now. You should do it.

must be the shittiest driving physics i've ever, ever seen.

Loading Video...

and it's raining in the game.

i'm a racing game enthusiast and i think this looks unappealing. mario kart 8 is more appealing.

Those things are hard as fuck to make with the new thread creating tools.

I think the mods are discussing on their board who's making which thread.

I haven't seen Mac's OS in forever.

Same. Last time I saw one was when I was studying still.

Kinda glad I avoided using the OS there to learn the software that I use for work. The entire design/engineering industry here seems to be phasing out Macs pretty aggressively here in the past years or so.

Why are they still called hackintosh? Is it still not ok to do?

Has anyone been watching Salem? Started a bit slow but it's really growing on me lately.

Silicon Valley is pretty cool as well and coming along nicely.

I like the DualShock 3 more.

@Blabadon: say what? The DS3 is a horrible controller. I had to buy a 3rd party ps3 controller to play on it.

No.

Despite what one may think about the DualShock 3, it is not as bad as a controller that somehow made it past R&D with three fucking prongs. No Emmanuel, you're wrong.

He's more defensive of the gamecube controller.

Do not get the internets love affair with that controller.

#1319 Posted by Blabadon (28982 posts) -

The GameCube controller had the worst X/Y buttons ever and the C-Stick was way too small.

Playing Smash with a DS3 (and hopefully the DS4 now) showed how much better other controllers are.

@mems_1224: It was pretty awesome. Man I was practically gay for Oberyn though he will be missed :( (especially with a death scene like that :3)

#1324 Posted by parkurtommo (28090 posts) -

Come on though the red wedding was way worse. Hell I'd even say that Joffrey's death scene was more "significant". Especially considering how long he was in the show.

@jg4xchamp: I notided the whole "ubisoft game" thing going on from the start as well. Having played Far Cry 3 and the AC series. It's kind of like what Rockstar does too though, you can see a lot of similarities between red dead redemption, LA Noire and GTA V. I don't really mind, personally. The formula works.

Eh, LA Noire I don't think suffers from Rockstarishness, not in the strictest sense.

But yeah GTA 4-RDR-GTA 5 very much play in the same league.

Disagree on the formula working with both parties though.

#1328 Posted by mems_1224 (49000 posts) -

Kinda bummed about whats gonna happen to Far Cry 4 and I have lost all interest in The Division. I didn't hate Watch Dogs but Im sick of playing Ubisoft games I think.

Certainly works as far as sales are concerned :P

You're right about LA Noire, I guess. But obviously the character controls, gunplay and cutscenes are derivative from RDR and GTA4. GTAV kinda took the best of RDR and added a bunch of awesomeness.

In Ubi's case, sure they have the whole control tower/area thing you have to deal with that started with AC2 (I think? or was it brotherhood?) and then Aiden's design has the same purpose as Ezio's design. I think Far Cry 3 didn't suffer too badly from the "Ubisoft syndrome" though. Again I think Ubi did what Rockstar did, they took what they thought was reliable in their previous franchises, and added a decent amount of innovation for a fresh title.

I think the tension in some of WD's cutscenes and interior situations were enough to set it apart from other Ubisoft games, they were pretty intense! I think that's one of the main reasons why I like the game a lot.

You read more into the joke than I did.

The overlying point is that Watch Dogs is straight up derivative.

The "Ubisoft" game would be a hyperbole. Rayman, Splinter Cell Blacklist, and Far Cry(to some extent) don't really fit the bill. Watchdogs on the flip side plays like any other open world game, but with a cell phone gimmick. More importantly it sticks to the Assassin's Creed mantra of mission variety. Which is have like 5 or 6 mission types and call it a day. To be fair that is not only an Ubisoft thing.

Sleeping Dogs did the same thing

So did Infamous

So does anything Rockstar make

To an extent so does Saints Row, but that series relies more on its spectacle and personality to carry the day.

As far as sales? sure they are both successful game companies.

Man... I can't play Far Cry 3 anymore because of that u play bullshit. Somehow I have more than one u play accounts and i got randomly logged out of the account with Far Cry 3 and couldn't figure out the password for it. Of course it's my fault for losing a password, but ffs, why should we have to make an account for some stupid third party service in the first place!? Good thing this happened months after I had finished the game and done the majority of it's side content.

#1335 Posted by jg4xchamp (51461 posts) -

Yeah at this point Imma stick to gameflying ubisoft stuff unless its download only or something that looks like my type of thing.

Watchdogs is already meh as it is, would be twice as meh if had to deal with Uplay.

Continuing xenoblade. Lvl 19.

Some enemies are weak and some show up at lvl 77. Why is this type in the game so early? Also soundtrack and gameplay are just amazing. I have no idea why i put it in my backlog last year when i bought it. Gonna start the last story after.

It's there as extra side stuff to encourage you to go back to them later on for side quests, or just general stuff to hunt so that you're not bogged down to a single late game area that's appropriate to your level. If you havent figured out yet, the game has fast-travel/waypoints.

You dont really have to do them if you dont want to sidetrack.
