  1. Man that video was painful. Seems to have missed the point of what the game was trying to do, and when you play the game you notice that the stuff that was in the first game is in this game, but it's just that Ellie isn't the one doing it because Joel isn't there as a guide, she's what 19 or 20 in this, she's a kid, an angry confused kid. There's a level of unrelenting psychological horror that permeates through every encounter, every hand-scrawled note, every vista. There's sadness, a melancholy, that's hard to deal with and if people wanna get angry at a lack of new gadgets then maybe they are approaching the game from the wrong angle. The fact that that guy in the video said the story was the biggest let-down is such a telling thing that it's hard to put in to words just how sad I feel for him. The story is exactly what needed to happen after the events of the first game, they even cover how she feels about in this game and why she is letting revenge drive her. The fact that you glimpse into the lives of other people trapped in this nightmare world shows her growing up as a person, as opposed to the colourful "happiness" that was in the first game, she was with Joel, they had a purpose, there was something to look forward to at the end. Here, and now? It's just dark, what point is there to keep going unless you find something to keep going FOR? The gameplay is non-stop horror, and I don't mean jump-scares and monsters and buckets of blood, it's horror at a primal level, the screams of the "enemies" are death-rattles from our ancestors, it's horrifying killing people, the violence is disgusting, un-called for, over-the-top and every single moment is reminding you that you'd rather be anywhere else but here, but you ARE here and you have to keep going and for what, revenge? Why? At what cost? It's the worst game I've ever played and simultaneously the best, the humanity shines through everywhere and if the lack of a new crowbar or carrying a box to climb into a window ruins the experience then you need to look deeper because it's worth playing and will be talked about in a decade as a high-watermark for the medium. Naughty Dog could shut down tomorrow and they'd still be relevant for a long time to come. All the bullshit about trans people, big muscley girls, AGENDA and oh-god-muh-politics is transparent as fuck and I hope one day for the planet earth to be renamed Fashbash Centriumius Prime.

  2. >Also, sexually ambiguous characters in post-apocalyptic setting make very little sense awww diddums, did da widdle peepee or jayjay make it all uncomftabibble :((( > (or even Trans but I'm not sure if Abby is one, because how the fuck you do that? Who prescribes & produces the hormones?). tyst. "is one", disgusting.. don't ignore the fact that the WLF are still driving tons of vehicles around, where'd they get all the gas? refineries can't still be functioning? are they just .. scavenging and finding usable gasoline out in the world? hmmmm maybe they're doing that with medicine too, and animals, and all the other stuff that still exists. and EVEN IF the ENTIRE CAST of characters were trans, what difference would it EVEN MAKE for the story that is told? or is it, could it just possibly be, no surely not, there's no way at all that you are being a little bit disingenuous with your reasoning. >They should've reserved that for some other title where it makes sense setting-wise. Uncharted maybe? yeah for sure i totally agree, much better to wait with stuff until everyone is comfortable and accepting, like how now-a-days nobody is offended by the dirty gays. we, the straight, white, moral majority opened our hearts and our minds and decided that yes, we can tolerate them. not accept them or stop beating them up in the street, i mean that'd be crazy right, gotta keep those subhumans in their place or the world would go crazy. imagine if i had to look at a penis other than my own, i think i'd vomit. in fact i don't even wash my asshole because that would be gay, imagine, those slippery lathered fingers accidentally.. teasingly.. work their way into my boy-pussy, oh no, i can't quite.. seem to work them free no matter how much i struggle, the water is pouring over my head and still i struggle, it's hard to breathe, the air is so steamy and lithe, the waterfalling droplets of the showers caressing my glistening body as they pitter patter onto the tiles below, yet still.. i struggle. >Bring back Amy Hennig. yeah for sure, she was a great writer and the projects she worked on at ND were truly phenomenal, uncharted 2 is a masterpiece. druckmann wrote the first 'last of us'.
  3. bullshit. ds2 is a decent game, but it's not a game to start with. ds3 is a fantastic game, but it's very much like a 'greatest hits' of all the souls games. i would personally recommend ds1, get dsfix, get rekt. there's a reason the souls games took off as well as they did and i think ds1 is the biggest reason, it's absolutely the right game to play first.
  4. I actually really enjoyed the game; hated it at first, felt really sluggish and shitty and weird pacing and so on, then I got super pissed off at the "TV Show" like why am I watching a low budget 24 and why is it going on for so long. However I found myself going back to it constantly, super addictive, I wanted to see where the story went, how they would wrap it all up, I got into the combat, the exploring and the reading, using the powers and coming across different enemies, the locations and time jumps were awesome. By the time it ended (fuck the final boss, if you make it hard don't make me sit through dialogue before I get another chance, dickheads), I was pretty bummed out, because you could see this would never get a sequel. I would honestly recommend this to anyone who hasn't played it yet, just keep an open mind and don't expect an action shooter but more of a story with the microsoft-required shooting elements. Like, go buy it now.
  5. it was drunken racism, you didn't miss out on much. see: the next 4 years of trump's pesidency
  6. played about 3 hours, just got to a nice outdoor area and framerate dropped to 10. fuck off if it looks anywhere near good enough to warrant 10fps. i really want to know WHY it's so shitty overall, because there's not a whole lot going on, it just looks like they aren't using any LODs or occlusion, and that's just fucking retarded. it looks nice, in terms of art direction, but not in terms of actual graphical quality; except for Trico who looks and behaves great. it's an interesting feeling being in the world with an AI that doesn't do what you want it to, or takes 5 minutes to do what you know it should be doing, or accidentally climbing the inside of it's leg instead of moving up the hind quarters, or trying to control the flaccid abortion that is the camera, even just trying to move about in the world trying not to bump into every fucking pebble. there's a million things wrong with this piece of shit and everyone involved should be fucking ashamed it took 9 years to shit out such a broken steaming turd; but i can't seem to stop playing it.
  7. Well done Bethesda and Arkane! A digital turd plopped out of steam's servers and landed on my hard drive yesterday morning. The stench of a rushed PC launch and incompetency hangs in the air, sticking to the back of my throat like a tankard of whale-oil. DISCLAIMER: I am the biggest fanboy of Dishonored and played through the first game so many times I even uploaded a "speed run" of one of the levels. NERD ALERT NERD ALERT HA HA! Dishonored 2 is fucked. The performance took me by surprise when I stepped out onto the roofs of Dunwall and dropped down to 30fps. "How odd" I proclaimed to myself as I took in the slideshow; maybe it's a new type of interactive storytelling like a 3d comic book or a gloryhole where instead of a penis poking through the hole an overly large turd is crammed through, squeezed and mushed out like play-dough, with an extra centimeter being exposed every second, at the apex of encounter when you think it can't possibly get worse a single straw is poked through the log by the pervert on the other side of the wall, you peer closer to see what's inside - wiping away the tears - and from the other side a tortured voice whispers: "mouse smoothing" Fuck me I feel like I am controlling a robot with narcolepsy. The mouse settings don't do shit except make it more annoying. The patch better change the text from "Sensitivity" to "Rage Meter". So this morning I was looking around to see if there was something the PC plebs could do to actually be able to play the game, some kind of human sacrifice or similar, and I found an article that linked to a Bethesda site where they were apparently espousing their deep knowledge by encouraging you to reformat your PC and double check your asshole to make sure it's gaped wide enough for the thorough dicking you were about to receive. I mean, I am guessing at this point because I couldn't reach the article, I accidentally, with my fat rage-filled fingers, pressed the Enter key before hitting the final number of my year of birth to pass the age gate, and their wonderfully coded website accepted that I was born in the year 198, and then refused to give me access to the site, apparently immortal demigods aren't welcome at the Bethesda webportal. Well, go suck a turd through a gloryhole, Bethesda. Arkane can give you a reach-around.

    EU Referendum

    hey lads. fuck leave voters i would write a big long post about why everything is shit and all arguments in favour of it are retarded but it wouldn't change anybody's mind, let's just hope england and wales break off and fall into the sea. sure some good people will drown but at least those dirty immigrant foreigners will drown as well eh! sieg heil!!!
  9. agree entirely Paul, I wasn't paying enough attention and it completely took me by surprise that this was the big event. left me more confused than anything. that being said i would totally recommend it to people, it's short, it's pretty in it's own way, it has enough going to keep you interested, and it's not like it costs AAA price.
  10. Casual play along with deathmatch is a much larger portion of the game than people who post on reddit want to believe. People buy the passes to have fun completing missions, playing casual, and having fun. What you are reading on places like reddit is a vocal minority of players who represent a small fraction of the playerbase. You also find comments that directly contradict each other such as "a map should be completely readable" but at the same time "could be prettied up". If it were up to players every map would be fy_iceworld and arms race wallhack would be on everyone except themselves. Levels also play vastly differently in casual and competitive; levels play vastly differently at different skill groups as well. What one player finds intuitive another will find confusing, what one player deems "too much clutter" another player will think it doesn't look pretty enough. All you can really do is try different things and keep it as balanced as you can and hope it plays out alright. Look at overpass and cobble, two maps that have received massive changes that only came after they were played by thousands (millions?) of people and professional teams at competitions where thousands of money were at stake. We play test maps with a much smaller pool of players and do our best. I don't think anyone should get hung up on the words, but rather try and look for feedback within the posts - if any can be found at all - and apply it to either patching the level or towards the next map!
