Absolutely agreed. DS9 has held up better than any other series. It has it’s bad episodes, but they’re not that bad. Especially compared with the likes of The Way to Eden, Shades of Grey, or Threshold
I’ve been calling it the Battlestar Galactica Effect. The writers and show runners working on the new Star Treks are people who would’ve seen the grim, gritty BSG reboot when it originally aired. And the producers are people who would consider BSG and its subsequent revival of TV sci-fi as the standard for what sci-fi… Read more
Agreed, I don’t see how they can come back from this. Between Kdin’s statement, firing Matt Bragg, and the former employees who are coming out with statements supporting Kdin and talking about the horrible working conditions at Rooster Teeth, I think this is the death blow for the company. Alanah Pearce put out a…
Or you can look at the expansions, pick one or two that really interest you, and wait for the monthly 50% off sales that they’re constantly doing. Or just don’t buy any of them and turn to the modding community to get a lot of furniture, clothing, and hair for free. Read more
Ugh, seriously those missions are the worst. I know they thematically fit in with the stealth aspect of the game, but damn did they get annoying. They’re part of what put me off trying the franchise for a long time.
I’d start with Origins. Valhalla is the end of the story arc they kicked off in Origins.
As someone who isn’t really a huge fan of the AC franchise, I would recommend Origins. It kicks off a new trilogy storyline, so it’s a bit easier to get into it and understand what’s happening. It also does away with a lot of the clunky stealth missions from previous entries (I never liked the tailing/eavesdropping… Read more
You dodged several bullets. Apparently, the guy started removing gladiator classes that were part of the base game so he could turn them into paid DLC. I only found out after taking a look at a Reddit thread about this news. Dude is predatory scum, through and through.
Bought the game years ago before I knew the dev was a garbage person. Played it for a couple of hours and never went back to it. Nothing of value was lost from this game being de-platformed.
I bought the game years ago (before the dev revealed what kind of person he is) and played it a bit, maybe a couple of hours. It was fun for a little while, but I’ve never felt the urge to play it again. You’re not missing anything. Really wish I could get my money back from that psycho piece of shit, though.
Compensation shouldn’t come from their operations budget, but rather from the police pension. They don’t give a shit about the budget, it’s all taxpayers’ money. Better to go after their retirement income, something they actually care about. Start compensating police victims out of the pension and watch how fast they… Read more
Seriously, they had damn near everything they needed to make this a home run game for them. As you said, Black Flag minus the Assassin/Templar fluff. Tune the controls, update the game engine. Bam. I was really looking forward to it, right up until they said it was multiplayer only.
God damn does that sound like a nightmare. I don’t want to have to play a match 3 game to farm materials for someone in WoW to spend a real-time hour forging a better weapon so I can use it in Dragon Age to get a loot drop for Borderlands. If I want to just play Borderlands (or Dragon Age or whatever other game), I… Read more
“You’re a game company, stay out of politics!”
Translation: Stay out of politics I don’t like/am trying to ignore!
I’m pretty sure this is the kind of guy who wishes he had a nerdy gamer girlfriend, but then bullies any woman who would have the sheer unmitigated gall to say that they’re a gamer but not be able to name every Goomba killed by Mario because they’re obviously just a fake trying to get attention
Yeah, I’d be asking for a refund right now if I could. Been in my backlog for a while, and I’m not any more inclined to play it after this shit.
Right, but Ethan didn’t say that Hades was making the aggressive killer dinosaur robots, only that it was corrupting them. So I’m not sure where the point of clarification lies for your nitpick
Hades did corrupt and take over some of the normal robots made by Hephaestus. IIRC one of the first major robot fights is against a corrupted Sawtooth. And there are various areas where Hades has corrupted a large number of the local robots.
