Every department and person that created Sacred 3 is to blame.

Saying sorry doesn't fix anything. 

Take the money, knock us down and say after you got caught "Sorry, it was peer pressure", doesn't make anyone feel less crappy.

The ultimate question!

F*** executive reassurances- they are just like politicians

I agree with most. Chris is great. Sadly somehow hes not hosting any of the normal shows. And I cant wait for Game of Thrones. TTG should make a really good game. I just wondering what will it be like. Like The Walking Dead or more interactive, with politics, choosing houses and so on. But since it will be episodic and not just game so I guess I just want too much.

How could it help a franchise to reach less gamers? Why do those executives always have to rub that PR-BS in our faces? If you won't be honest, just shut the hell up!

As far as I'm concerned fans of a series are not who should be at the forefront of a developers mind when making a new game. When a new game is made the developer should be focusing on making the most relevant game to the lore and the story. Just because someone likes one game doesn't mean they will like the sequel to it. If they make a sequel that is similar to the first then all the best to them but if the developer wants to change it up then they should be focusing on getting new fans not keeping old ones.

So (off topic, but I see that it's going to be reviewed), who's reviewing Metro Redux? Kevin or Chris?

Don't get the outrage over TR being exclusive X-One, for a time anyway. As the owner of an X360, how many games have I missed out on that were exclusive to the PS3 or other platforms? It was logical for MS to try to lock down big-name titles, they need help competing with the PS4.

I don't get why people who've established themselves in their careers...and more importantly are grown ups have jobs where they play PR and apologize to titty babies on gaming websites who think the world owes them shit.


I mean I actually DO get it...but how sad for them they need to feed their families by pandering to the most useless core of society.

At least they apologized, cant say the same for many others (Rise of the tomb raider)

You know it's a really bad design that there are no links to the original stories to be found anywhere...

I think Chris is great on camera, and good with the humour, but I'd prefer the humour taken back just a bit.  It just felt a little too much for a news show.


I like that UK is doing the news tomorrow, of course everyone loves Jess, right?  But a little variety now and then is nice:).

@Mercaptan I can understand your concern, given recent events, but it was just a question of whether or not he'd be too jetlagged to host the show today. He still works here.

@Dannystaples14 I'm all for developers making the games they themselves feel like. But if they're drastically changing both the setting, mood and the mechanics of a game they should really make it a new IP instead. I suspect the only reason they would make it a sequel to an existing game is to benefit from people buying it because they liked the first one. That makes it more than a bit dishonest.


I suspect there would be a few angry people if FIFA 2016 turned out to be a turn-based audience simulator set in a small town in Estonia

@ArchoNils2 Yeah but they haven't apologised they are still ongoing with that and probably will continue to do so in the future.

Are you feeling Okay.  

Imitating Prodigy and joining in with the crowd. You must be having a bad day today. 

I hope you get better.

@Tabarnaque @hystavito I know but don't you think just a bit less would be better?  The things reassuring executives thing felt really out of place.  I think it's fine to make little jokes and comments around the stories but I just thought this went too far.

Nice come back.  I liked it

 We're all sheep here.

At the end of the day, Jess laughs her way to the bank at the expense of all of our dumb-@sses. 

All all our time here is almost for nothing, except self-expression and contrbution.

Thank you Father of Jess McDonell.  You are Jess' father, aren't you? 

I would be the best man for your daughter. . .yes I would.

You do have some truth to what you said, but in a positive light.

It does take a very special person to love someone like Jess knowing you aren't anything in return.

@homelessgamer hey buddy have you play divinity original sin yet i would  understand if its not a game you would like. but if you have not looked at it yet i, at least, like it and would suggested it to an old school rpg fan ( a little like baldur's gate)  just in case

I would love too, but I don't have a PC that can play that. I'm working on getting a gaming PC early next year.

@prodigy_69 @SaintsRowLA 

Another brilliant comeback.  I just up voted you.

I'm very happy I keep you delightfully entertained.



It's only appropriate to fawn over deardeerdear Jess.


Seriously, IMHO, I do think Jess has Asperger's Syndrome--not just introverted.  I say that as an act of compassion, but I could be wrong.

@homelessgamer awesome dude . it is an awesome game and does not need that much to play so no need to spend big just for this one, unless you are also looking to play starcitizen in a few months or maybe years ;)
