PC has a larger amount of games, but half of them are trash. Ps4 has a smaller amount of games, but alot of exclusives that are soo worth your time!

Exclusives that barely last 10 hours. PC exclusives like FTL, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, Total War, and Divinity OS can easily give you hundreds of hours of gameplay.

There you go. R9 290 has 4.9TFLOPs at stock speeds (it can easily overclock to r9 290x levels--5.6TFLOPs), whereas a PS4 has 1.84TFLOPs in an ideal situation where the CPU isn't bottlenecking it.

So, for some reason, when I try to post a comment to a review article, it's not showing up, but when I post it to a regular article, it works. Just wondering what the issue might be.

I could see it being relatively challenging so long as you rely on checkpoints instead of quicksaves. It's certainly far harder than Dishonored was. The AI is decent on the hardest difficulty, and complete garbage on the lower difficulty settings. It has a pretty decent length--far more than most big-name games, and will probably last you 20+ hours, especially if you're playing on hard. It's a semi-linear game; you have to reach one location, but there are different ways to get there. However, there's less room for improvisation than in the older Thief games. There's stuff to upgrade, and the HUD can be completely removed (at least on PC). Nothing new or innovative really. It's a decent stealth game with some poor design choices (too many context sensitive buttons instead of dedicated buttons--not having dedicated lean buttons was a huge oversight imo).

There is nothing special or innovative so far this generation, just the same old games with prettier graphics, have we come to the point where there is nothing new that developers can do, so we will play the same games in hd, ultra hd then 4k, so the next 15 years of gaming will be the same thing.

You're basing this on...what, the big "AAA" games being released by major publishers? Or are you referring to the entire industry?

Papers Please, FTL, Quadrilateral Cowboy, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, Natural Selection 2, etc etc--all very unique games with innovative mechanics

Since GlitchSpot is finally driving me away with all of this bugged out reviews business, I want to go to a different website. Being able to write my own reviews is the only thing that has kept me here so long. But, now it's fucked.

Anyway, do you know of any other "at least moderately well-known" gaming websites that allow for user reviews like GameSpot does? (and does it allow for pictures to be posted in said reviews?)

Well there's Steam, but I don't think you can include pics in your Steam reviews.

how are all you folks doin? I'm looking for some good tactical shooters for the xbox and ps2. I'm kinda tired of the run and gun MMS bullshit. I'm looking for an fps or tps that has to take some brains to get through. It doesn't have to be squad based. The game doesn't have to have a modern theme either. I'm looking for realistic gunplay, branching paths, (if it's squad based) good squad A.I. and commands, open or QCB warfare, and a realistic damage system (meaning it only takes a few shots to drop your ass). A lean mechanic would also be nice, but it's not needed. I'd appreciate all of your feedback.

The XBOX and PS2 really aren't the place to look for these sort of games. What you really need is PC.

Swat 4 (probably the best tactical FPS ever, designed by none other than Ken Levine and his team at Irrational), released only on PC in 2005

Rainbow Six 3 Gold Edition (features the Athena Sword expansion)

While Rainbow Six 3 was also released on the XBOX, the PC version is considerably deeper, with larger levels, a map editor thing that lets you plot out every move your team makes, and I believe it also has more team controls than its console counterparts.

The games aren't hard to run btw.

Not only is the guy (17yo btw) making a game, but he's doing the music for it as well...and it's pretty fucking good imo. The only thing I disliked was the falsetto vocals (and mainly because I think his regular vocals were just so much better).
