    More Warframe. Lots of Warframe. I've managed to haul my backside to Saturn. $5 for the devs. I've clocked in over 100 hours and I'm still hungry for more. Another $5 for DE. I think this may very wel...

    Does Ramen restaurants count? They're pretty quick. When I go out, I like to go to this Ramen place and order a bowl of Miso Ramen, six pieces of Gyoza (fried pork dumplings), a plate of Takoyaki (oct...

    Whenever I read stories like these, I always return to my three rules:1. Always take science stories in mainstream media with a grain of salt. Or to be more accurate, a whole shaker full.2. Go to the ...

    So, THQ is back in almost full, then? Name and games are the same, just different people in charge.Cautiously optimistic about this. These guys updated Titan Quest to Anniversary Edition, then went be...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Did you play Dishonored 2? Enjoy it?. on the System Wars board

    Yeah, beaten it as Emily. Great game. A bit infuriating at times, but I did put 137 hours into it, so it must have done something right.

    Pasta. Love it. Can never have enough of it. Spaghetti with bacon and chunky tomato sauce. Tortellini or fettuccine in basil pesto and prawns. Ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese. Love them all an...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic Ubisoft expects big growth from PC gaming "The PC opportunity". on the System Wars board

    Not all that surprising. PC gamers do tend to be older and have more disposable income. PC gaming also has a rich history of games with very long-term engagement, such as StarCraft, Counter-Strike and...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic What are you playing this weekend, SW?. on the System Wars board

    You know what? I'm playing and enjoying a game I never thought I'd ever play. I mean, I literally "Not Interested" it on Steam. The reason I did this was simple; it's a "Free-To-Play" game, and I usua...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic What is the weirdest game you've ever played?. on the System Wars board

    Sacrifice.It's an over-the-shoulder third-person RTS. Your characters are weird, your units are weird, even the five god's that give you missions are weird.

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic What are you playing this weekend, SW?. on the System Wars board

    Injustice 2. Much less now, though, since I've now levelled all characters (upcoming TMNT aside) to 20. Just a a session or two a day for the loot boxes, hoping one day to unlock some new abilities fo...

    Congrats to Namco and Arc. Not interested in the game myself; Soulcalibur VI is my sole focus in 2018 as far as fighting games are concerned, and I'm not much of a DBZ fan. Still, it looks like it's s...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic GameSpot outdoing IGN! Three games received 9/10 scores at GameSpot in last 30 hours. on the System Wars board

    Maybe it's because, I dunno, those games deserve it? Maybe it's just the reviewers' subjective opinions, and you shouldn't interpret them as anything more than that?I don't see how this warrants a thr...

  • madrocketeer posted a message in the forum topic P2W being reinstated in SWBF2. on the System Wars board

    As I understand it, they're reinstating some kind of microtransactions, but not necessarily pay-to-win, or more accurately in this case, pay-to-gain-advantage. Especially since EA also said they're re...

    Aren't "handheld PCs" just tablets? Razer even experimented with a gaming tablet a few years ago, IIRC.GPU would not be a problem, though I would pick NVIDIA over AMD for power efficiency. The real pr...
