That's because it's all been shit. Dunno why I'm surprised, the only good BL1 dlc was knoxx's armoury.

The pork buns are <3. Place is retardedly busy though.

I've been to Chinatown in Toronto once and I got food poisoning.

TERA won't last long. I've finished most of the endgame within 3 weeks of picking up the game, there just isn't much to do. Also the gear progression late-game is some retarded RNG based grind system- being lucky can literally save you 2 weeks of grinding.
Uzique The Lesser wrote:i sunk a decent amount of time into WoW alternatives because of the mythical 'end-game' messianic faith that gets promoted in these games. everyone busily grinds out the leveling experience - no matter how terrible - with the fable of the promised land at the end of it, a rich cornucopia of end-game treats and new mindblowing MMO experiences. of course what normally happens is people race to maxlevel, which is quite a fun and exciting thing to do in any new MMO tbh, and then get to end-game and discover its nothing but tumbleweed and not-quite-done-yet content. the game is normally empty by 2 months in, whilst the MMO's devs/publishers continue hyping the game's novelties on twitter and facebook, increasingly detached from reality as more and more players become jaded and ask "wtf"? by 6 months in they've rinsed enough cash out of the promotion, and they downsize it to like 2 servers. i've seen this cycle repeat a depressing number of times.
the only MMO that has kept me for longer than that normal routine is TERA, and simply because the combat system is addictive and a joy. it seemed to integrate all the best (new) features of WoW and other current-gen MMO's into a game that had really seamless combat. the ultra-korean setting and terrible release schedule between guild wars 2 and diablo 3 meant it hasn't really rocketed over here in the west... but it is incredibly polished. the combat alone is worth trying it out. it even makes guild wars 2's incredibly-overhyped new combat/movement system seem basic and shit.
in between WoW's amazing epic feeling and TERA's next-level combat, i really think it's going to be hard to find an MMO that can beat it (especially in a timeframe where i still even care about playing computer games, or have the time). basically i'll just need a relaunch of vanilla WoW, or another korean TERA clone that manages to scrape more of a buzz/movement than the current 1.5m playing TERA.
I love Independence day :3

I know the movie is very America fuck yeah since we saved the entire world who were just sitting on their ass waiting to take orders with our fighter jets, stealth bombers, tanks, and nuclear weapons. But I still enjoyed it. You could feel the mid 90's optimism coming through the screen.
The planes of oblivion ruined Oblivion for me. They were so, so bad.

Adams_BJ wrote:Oblivion sucked, but I enjoyed skyrim.
I think Skyrim is a great game, the engine is really what's most impressive about it. But I don't think the quests are as good as Oblivion. I also miss doing speech challenges.
What I dislike the most is the region. Oblivion had the urban area in Imperial City, plains, forests, a mediterranean region, swamplands, as well as the snowy mountains you see in Skyrim. I liked the variety. Skyrim is just a little too monotonous for my tastes-- they even said during development that the different elevations allowed them to get away with making a smaller game region. Yes, it's fun and its beautiful, but there are only so many variations of mountains I can take before getting sick of it. I really liked Chorrol and Cheydinhall from Oblivion.
They've already done a desert with Fallout but I'm hoping they'll do one with the Arabians. It'd be an interesting take on the fantasy genre. Swords, magic, and Arabs. I'd dig it.
If I remember right it's a PMC they run into in The Hurt Locker, not SAS. They were portrayed as being really well equipped but being unprofessional and poorly trained.

This whole season's an absolute clusterfuck. Did they get new writers or something?

Spoiler (highlight to read):
Finally completely caught up and they keep killing off the characters that are even remotely human: first Jimmy, and now Owen. Do I really want to watch Gyp beat peoples heads in with a shovel over nothing? Is that really what HBO thinks I want to watch? Fuck this show. Fuck Nucky. Fuck Margaret and all the rest. There isn't a single sympathetic character remaining besides the minor character Harrel.

I find the 10" ones really unwieldy so my choice was between this or waiting for the iPad mini. Basically I'd like to be able to use it on the tube without drawing attention and looking like a prat.

It's a good game but it's so short.

That's my teamcomp as well. 2x support and 2x assault. Having guys who can move huge distances and shoot is a lifesaver in this game, and medkits are OP at higher difficulties.
The remake was atrocious I thought. There was a thread on reddit showing some of the pre-production animatronics they were planning to use and it's such a huge shame they decided to go with CGI in the end.

Granted, this is pre-cgi, but it was definitely not John Carpenter's best work. Maybe it just hasn't stood the test of time very well.
No decent mech game for years and then two come a long at once
wait for mwo open beta
Haven't seen the second one, the first one was bad enough.

Aries_37 wrote:Boondock Saints was honestly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Utterly tasteless trash. It's the 90's equivalent of a B-movie starring Jason Stratham.
I've really not seen anyone on reddit, in-game or on forums saying that this game will last more than a few months. The general concensus is that there is a palpably finite amount of things to do and there is no real endgame. Almost no one is bothering with 100% world completion or legendary weapon crafting because both are so mindlessly dull.

i salute them for making bold design changes and for trying to revive an ailing genre. however, change does not automatically = progress. i don't feel they have progressed the mmo genre in any meaningful way with gw2. it's novel, for a while, and then it's shallow and hollow... like almost every other mainstream mmo to be released in the last 4-5 years. some love the new levelling and xp system, which seems mostly to be personal preference, as i and quite a lot of my old-mmo friends absolutely detest it. the 'dynamic' quests and 'revolutionary' levelling method is nothing but a turd dressed up with a few shiny baubles. it's still the same old turd. every quest boils down to the same 3-4 basic cookie-cutter tasks. every dynamic event is a total 'i don't give a fuck what's going on', 'i'm not talking or actually working with anyone' snorefest. people are already registering widespread complaint and boredom on the official forums.
like i said, i give it 3-4 months. this game will not retain a massive community. and its strong-points are all inferior to gw1's strongpoints. if you want hardcore arena pvp, you're better off dusting off your old gw1 copy. so much for 'progression'. game is honestly the let down of the year for me. especially with the unfixed problems w/r/t melee vs. ranged, camera being a beta-level piece of shit, fov being unalterable and shit, etc. it just reeks of 'rushed to meet the hype'.
