Isn't this one of the photos from CheapAssGamer when Walmart fucked up and had TV's and other items like 90% off?
Edit: Yeap - Here - post #720.
To those reading r/gaming who aren't into eSports... now's your chance to see what its all about. Here's a little video showing just how amazing SC2 eSports is.
Click the link and go watch some professional StarCraft 2. You're welcome :]
If you like what you end up seeing, you should head over to [link] and check out the GSL when you get the chance. Or perhaps the IGN ProLeague.
You don't need to play StarCraft 2 to enjoy spectating it. I don't even play :]
EDIT: And its over - [Bomber](/spoiler) from the Korean team [Startale](/spoiler) is the Raleigh SC2 champion! Congratulations to the winner!
If you just came to this thread and are late to the party, don't worry!
Rebroadcasts of all of Championship Sunday are up now! Use the progress bar at the bottom of the video to navigate through the re-stream. Videos-on-demand of the entire tournament will be up shortly!
Please get both sides of the story before calling out IGN for one reviewers poor review. It's one thing to call out a reviewer for doing a bad job, it's another to blame it all on IGN.
Just to clarify, this is China, not Japan. Those are shaolin monks jumping on rooftops in the distance.
Here's an excellent IGN article talking about the idea of an oriental AC game based in china, with more awesome art work.
and here's some more artwork from the artist's devian art page
I can't decide yet if this game has just had people deciding to climb up on the Hate Wagon or if it really is going to be awful. I do think any game in this franchise is going to have a difficult time following Thief: The Dark Project or Thief 2: The Metal Age. (Deadly Shadows itself had some problems following up those two IMHO. Looking at YOU, Abysmal Gale....)
Smattering of other reviews have been mixed.
I'll be curious to see how the reviews go once it's released to the public.
I haven't watched Dexter regularly since Season 4 ended, but I've kept up with it. Based on this trailer, even knowing a lot of it will turn out to be "dream sequences" - I think we're clearly headed towards Dexter being the main villain of season 8. Someone else linked this article in a comment:
One quote in particular jumps out:
“This was definite. We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of Dexter. Absolutely.”
They wanted to end it with this season, but Showtime wanted to spread out the ending to two years. The trailer here is a bit heavy handed - particularly because of the use of "Change" by Deftones. "I watched a change in you." They are teasing the idea that Dexter kills Matsuka and Deb, but I don't think he's going to do either of those things. I think these "dream visions" are being used in the trailer to create interest and to show us that Dexter's "passenger" is bleeding out into the rest of his world.
My expectation is that as this season progresses, Dexter will become less and less reliable as a narrator. The season will end with him clearly wanting to kill his (likely) former co-workers and friends, but failing to do so. Season 8 will be the season where Dexter himself is the central villain. Whether it's told from someone else's perspective or whether it's told from the unreliable perspective of Dexter, we'll watch him hunt, be hunted and either die or go away for life.
Realistically, they can't end a show about a mass murderer on a happy ending.
From the developers:
"We make these single-player missions that take up all the focus of the studio, that take a huge team six months to make, and players run through it in 8 minutes," he said. "And how many people finish the single-player game? It's a small percentage. It's like, everyone plays through the first level, but 5 percent of people finish the game.
"Really, you split the team. They're two different games. They're balanced differently, they're scoped differently. But people spend hundreds of hours in the multiplayer experience versus 'as little time as possible rushing to the end' [in single-player]. So why do all the resources go there? To us it made sense to put it here. Now everybody sees all those resources, and multiplayer is better. For us it made sense."
Yeah and Rainbow 6 Patriots isn't even still a game. A rep from Ubisoft said that the whole thing had to be redone so I wouldn't expect to see that for years.
Seriously caswunn, if you fuck this up, I will find you
Borderlands 2 didn't sell 5 million copies on the first 24 hours.
As of October 31st, it'd shipped over 5 million copies.
Source 1, 2
EDIT: Fixed date, source.
IGN was only glad to capitalize on the hate for this game... it's literally the top front page item on their website
In one of the developer videos, they said they balanced Inferno by getting it to a point the developer team thought was good, then they doubled it. It wasn't clear what they doubled, but if it was damage, I think that was a bad choice. I'd rather see the balancing through sheer number of mobs, with some unique abilities, rather than having everything 1-shot the player.
 Video here! (Sorry for the ad.)
The quote exactly:
> Inferno difficulty is very very very hard. We basically, internally, we had this super hardcore test team...that tested Inferno. We got it to a point that we thought it was challenging enough, and then we doubled it, because we knew that no how matter good we are, our players are going to be better.
This is the best grammar and formatting critique, next someone needs to put together a flow, style, logic, good elements of strong writing critique. Put the two together and you have the cohesive job an editor should have performed.
If the author fixed all the errors just pointed out in this article he would still be left with a grammatically correct turd that sounds like a middle school student with good grammar blushing about how much he loves Naruto.
Edit: Ah crap, I just found out we are attacking IGNs pet project. [link] IGNs new years resolution was to "Change the way people talk about video games", Likely this was the culmination as he says
>"Compared to the rest of the Internet, reading a games site is like reading a Middle English novel. We're the Canterbury Tales of the Web, caught up in a very old system that was designed when print was king and video was scarce. The Internet moved on and games media pretty much stayed in place."
The dumbing down witnessed within this article was likely intentional and deliberate, no wonder he is defending it (Even in some comments saying more reviews like this are to come)
Here is what Greg had to say about the constant use of "I" in a review,
> "I disagree. When we review games, we're reviewing them as individuals for IGN. It's silly to sit here and say "We did this..." or "We think..." I'm one person. IGN respects my opinions and I'm the voice for the site on this issue/article/etc. I think you're going to see more articles take that stance in the coming months."
I remember reading the review on IGN, it ended up going like 90 feet in an open space.
Here's the review
Can't believe it was 2002...10 years ago.
IGN Best of E3 2010 Awards
Best Xbox 360 Game - Portal 2
Best PS3 Game - Portal 2
Best PC Game - Portal 2
Best Puzzle Game - Portal 2
Um... It looks like they have doubles for 360, PS3, & Puzzle.
I'm the community manager for IGN eSports and I'd like to thank all of YOU for watching and spreading the word about our tournament. Feedback threads like this are the best way for us to quickly see what is going right and what is going wrong, so please keep it up for tomorrow! Also, don't forget that the StarCraft 2 portion of our tournament will be running for another 4 to 5 hours, so tune in if you enjoy that game as much as LoL! [link]
Michael Pachter is a buffoon with a megaphone. His predictions are rarely accurate and he even said that The Walking Dead Game doesn't have a chance of winning at the Spike VGA's and I quote: "Those games don't have a prayer, they're not going to win...The industry still thinks low price point, low quality. Even thought the game got great reviews. People loved it, they just think its not a real game, its like gaming light and there's no way". Fool.
They absolutely are. They have 3 very balanced mechs. One of the devs was talking about how the design team wanted to add lots of mechs, but (I think the balance team) stopped them right after the first one, the atlas, and made sure it was balanced around every part of the game they had in at the time. Then they did that with two more mechs. That's a hell of a lot of development time. The same interview said they may be adding more mechs later.
Here's the interview.
Best theme song ever
BTW I invite you all to /r/commandandconquer even though we are very empty you might find a few gems ;)
Sadly, the Command and Conquer series is officially dead. EA has killed it terribly. The last game in the traditional series was butchered into something unrecognizable. No base building, resource gathering, campaign was only about 10 missions long, and the storyline was TERRIBLE. WTF EA!!!! Sorry, very few things match the anger from a C&C fanboy over what EA has done.
The final nail in the coffin? Command and Conquer Generals 2 has gone to a free to play, always online game. May you always be remember for your best moments What WestWood and their actors were willing to do for us kids to make us feel awesome will never be forgotten.
According to Massively. The competition was pretty thin, but I did pick this up when it was first on Steam at 50% off, and it's (IMO) definitely fun.
A lot better than I expected, honestly, given how badly this game failed the first time around. Enough to fire the entire dev team and rebuild it from the ground up and re-release with a new title. I'm only in the lower 20s on my highest level class though so who knows what I'll think when I get to end game content.
edit: They were also selected for 2013 by IGN.
Found a few links confirming /u/Bumfrenzy.
>Nintendo's last generation of devices originally used GameSpy Technologies' (bought in 2012 by Glu Mobile) server and matchmaking services to power online play. Nintendo took online services in-house with the 3DS and Wii U.
>Using IGN's GameSpy Technology, DS players can connect wirelessly at many Wi-Fi Hotpsots to find their friends and begin racing, battling or chatting as easily as if they were sitting in the same room.
>GameSpy Technologies (the entity responsible for GameSpy multiplayer services) was bought from IGN Entertainment by Glu Mobile in August 2012, and proceeded in December to raise integration costs and shut down servers for many older games... <snipped>
Good thing I never joined the hate Nintendo bandwagon... IMO, they have some guts not mentioning Glu Mobile is to blame for any of this. No doubt they are being flooded with hate emails right now.
In alternative you can go to the IGN IPL Website
(Free 720p) and using their player go to:
EDIT: Added time for the games.
You'd be correct:
Apparently Mac Walters had written a completely different ending that EA/Bioware nixed without informing him
Here's a good IGN story on the topic
"However, it wasn't all fun and games when it came to depicting these classic characters. Moore recalled one particular snag with Nintendo and their character Bowser:
"We did have kind of a check-in process, where we would show them the footage and say, 'What do you think? Is it good?' At one point, [Nintendo] said, 'Bowser's much bigger than that. He's way bigger than Zangief.' We were like, 'Okay, we'll make him bigger. How's that?' They'd say, 'Yes, that’s good -- but he wouldn’t drink his coffee like that. He wouldn’t make that mouth.' [Laughs] Of course, then people from Sega said, 'Well, Doctor Robotnik is bigger.' [Laughs] They wanted their characters bigger and bigger. We were going to end up with these giants in a room, with Ralph as this little guy... But I think that stuff really helped. I looked back on our original animation before the Nintendo notes, and it was like, 'You know, he does look more like Bowser now.'"
So as far as nintendo was concerned it was free advertizing and apparently companies got to approve. I think that the size battle was just wanting their character to take up more of the screen.
The link posted here is for an Xbox contest that is available to ALL Xbox live members. Anyone can enter it to be put into the drawing.
The reddit user who already received his, did so by being a 10 year subscriber to Xbox Live. It is talked about here: [link]
People who have been Xbox live subscribers since its inception have a chance to be mailed a free Xbox anniversary console. Others will just get a free avatar item.
Edit: It's really surprising to me that people are turning a Good Guy Microsoft move into complaints about how someone else got a free console and they didn't. Seriously, they didn't have to make a special Xbox 360, and they didn't have to mail free consoles out to loyal subscribers. No one would have noticed if they hadn't, but they did it anyway.
After Titanfall you have:
MGSGS on 3/18

This does not include the [email protected] or arcade games which will definitely be releasing in March/April and on. In addition, this does not include any already announced games that do not have a date. I skipped ESO because of the rampant greed of Zenimax studios with their "no paywall" claim and then they lock Imperial race behind one. For other games that I did not include because they did not have a release date set check here: [link]

They play their games at least 3 times, though. Uh-oh, look at the reviewer's name...
EDIT: I thought most would be familiar because this was a huge /r/gaming event pre-/r/gamernews. Basically, the review I posted was mocked <em>heavily</em> on reddit for overall poor writing. This caused a lot of drama, countless attempts at re-writes and corrections of the text and generally a conclusion that IGN has become the most low brow branch of games journalism.
The Dead Space 2 review was written by Greg Miller, also the author of the above Dead Island review.
If this makes the front page of /r/all, we should probably let them know about the badass League of Legends tournament at IPL4 in Las Vegas, which is currently in its finals between Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming, which they can watch at [link] and they can find out more information at [link] and [link]. Right?
From the wiki:
>Match Trigger Kill 15 Pilots with the G2A4 Rifle Allows you to fire as fast as you can pull the trigger.
I assume it gets rid of any timing mechanism on firing.
From the Roy character "analysis" :
>Roy is basically a more powerful version of Marth
>He's stronger than Marth, and his only disadvantage is really that he can't jump as high or strike quite as
>In the air, Roy's A-button attacks can be pretty powerful too. His Up + A and Down + A air attacks aren't as effective as Marth's, but his forward facing and backward facing attacks are fairly strong
Dat noodle sword tho.
Factor 5 Indiana Jones & The Infernal Machine interview-->Link
>The sheer amount of textures was possible due to the streaming from the cartridge. While the player is running through the level, the program figures out which parts of the level need to be streamed in and does that in the background. So the amount of textures and size of levels is only limited by the cartridge, not the RAM of the N64. To achieve this, we had to rewrite not only all of the microcode but also quite a bit of the N64s operating system.
>...light is something the normal N64 microcode is not very good at. For Rogue [Squadron] we already had done some changes, but when we started Indy, we just started from scratch, threw away Nintendo and SGI's microcode and wrote everything from the ground up. Our new microcode allows almost unlimited real-time lights and a much higher polygon count than the original.
The RCP was the graphics chip. Basically, what Factor5 did was force everything (through code) to process through the RAM, the cartridge, the RCP, the CPU, etc... however best it would work, disregarding, to a degree, what was supposed to use what.
It's like a guy at your office asking you to do something that's not in your job description, that someone else gets paid to do, but he's coming to you because you can actually do that small task the best.
They haven't officially cancelled it yet, so there is still hope. Also, Bethesda gave a response to IGN:
>We reached out to Bethesda about the title’s absence.“Since we had already announced it wasn’t coming out this year and we don’t have anything new to say on the game at this time, we simply didn’t think it’d be appropriate to include it on the new site launch,” a Bethesda spokesperson told IGN. “We chose instead to focus on the upcoming titles we are talking about.”
Sorry to see it go. I actually won 3rd place in one of their monthly contests when I was a kid.
Won a moto-cross jersey, helmet, and a copy of a pretty boring game
A little correction, this interview is after a major upset vs a professional player in the early stages of the winners bracket. She has since won another upset (2-0 shutout) and is about to go up against one of the undisputed best players in the world (called FXOz).
This tournament, taking place at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, has a prize pool of $100,000 for SC2, and is only one of nearly a dozen with similar or larger prize pools that will take place in the US this year. Players are sponsored, and hundreds of people play for a living. It has comparable popularity in Western Europe and in South Korea it is even more popular.
Scarlett has taken 2 gold medals at a very competitive all female tournament called The Iron Lady, and as mentioned in the interview, won a popular recurring online tournament called Playhem that has modest prizes and is considered a breeding ground for up and coming players (it is the kind of thing talent scouts watch). I really hope she will be signed with a team before she leaves Vegas, bringing with it access to coaches, skilled training partners, travel funds and possibly a salary. Whichever team signs her will also gain me as a fan.
Scarlett FIGHT-ING! (<-- how Koreans cheer their favorite players)
EDIT: I copy pasted this from non gaming reddit. I just removed stuff you would already know, like an explanation for why she is using a pseudonym.
Update: She just played match vs a hugely favored Korean opponent, and lost 1-2, but winning even that single game was a huge upset. The tournament is double elimination, so she still has a shot.
That is the best description that I think there is. Most people get to confused with the plot and don't realize the metaphors, tone, and underlying themes that makes the show great. At the same time though, the writers even admitted they weren't really sure what they were doing they just made stuff up and went with it.
Edit or links:
Are you sure it's pre-rendered? The scene in this comparison video between last-gen and next gen (at 2:12), and there's a clear difference in textures, shadows and shading. If it was pre-rendered, wouldn't it look the same regardless of platform?
US only, World Wide the PS4 is more than a million ahead as of December 28th
Someone did make that. I think they auctioned it for charity, and it went for around 100k.
While searching, I found that they make a more affordable "Akira" conversion kit for a Honda Fusion scooter. So...if you want a scooter that looks like a badass bike...
Edit: The story from IGN, from 2005.
Thanks for the thanks! We appreciate it. To see what he's referring to (IPL TV) check out [link] at 5 p.m. PDT/8 EDT/2 a.m. CEST or the re-broadcasts the following day at 9:30 a.m. PDT/12:30 p.m. EDT/6:30 p.m. CEST each week day! =D
You know what is funny? The comments section of this notice in the IGN.
Jeez, they make me feel ashamed for reading this site. Almost everyone is complaining about it, saying bullshit like "Nintendo is the Apple of the handhelds" and how this is the shitiest move that Nintendo ever made. Just a bunch of 12 years old.
It does not even have a second circle pad! I can be happy with my discrete and adequate-sided 3DS, with my mind clear knowing that I'm not losing anything. And it's not a upgrade, like you said, its just a alternate model.
Well, but here's come a fun fact: this model will be sold WITHOUT a AC adapter.
Edit: IGN edited the text, and now is confirmed that this last sentence (WRITTEN 8 HOURS AGO) is only true for EU and Japan. Sorry for the confusion. Now stop being annoying saying "Read the text", because it wasn't there before.
>First, it's well known (or at least, rumored) that Valve is planning some sort of "Steam Box" so-called console.
A rumor which they went out in the media and squished: [link]
>Two, the screenshot clearly shows l4d2 running under a windows workstation.
Yes, have I denied this? Just like last time we have binaries compiled for Linux running. It still doesn't mean that it's going to be released until Valve comes out and say that they're going to release something. Of course noone works on a project that has no chance of succeeding, but you underestimate the number of projects that are started and worked on a lot but never see the light of day.
>Three, Gabe N responded to a redditor's email saying that the article was accurate/true.
Yes, see point two.
>Four, Valve has been working heavily with Intel/Nvidia and has been very interested as of late in hiring linux devs. This is a fact.
If it is fact, then show me some proof. Yet all it means is what we already know, that they're working on a Linux version of Steam and L4D2, not that we're going to see it released.
And finally, Gabe has been wrong many times and if there is anyone at Valve who isn't your boss, it's Gabe.
Nintendo has a habit of not announcing their non-big name titles until fairly late in development, so hopefully we'll see more games for both 3DS (the current annouced upcoming games list is fairly horrible) and Wii U announced at E3 for publication before the end of the year, as most of the current known Wii U titles (mostly referring to Smash, Kart, Bayo 2, and X here) are still undated and might be pushed to 2015.
Overall, as a guy not into most of what Nintendo has put out first party this Gen (I own a 3DS and have kept only one of the first party titles I bought for it, and only because it's OOT), the multiplat situation on Wii U is a complete disaster. The few titles the devs want to put out for it at the same time (Watch_Dogs) are being pushed back due to technical issues, and even when it releases will compete with the PS3/360 versions of the game, not the next-gen or PC versions. When the biggest competition for your system in terms of 3rd party titles are systems cheaper than you with huge, cheap libraries (referring to PS3/360 here as those will remain the equivalent ports to Wii U going forward), you know the system is in a bad position.
I was wondering if his ult would affect minions and towers as well. This is going to be so fun.
I think this is most applicable and most imperative to implement for F2P games, especially any game reviewed in a Beta or early release stage.
Let's take Warframe for example: Reviewed in April 2013, this game was in Open Beta at the time. Since then, it has undergone significant game play & clan mechanics changes since then, and was officially "launched" at the time that the PS4 version came out in November 2013.
Games like this that have perhaps been reviewed early or earlier than their actual release are in great need of revised reviews.

"The game has been rated as 18 by PEGI, the pan-European game ratings organisation. It's worth noting that the body doesn't censor games, and rather this decision appears to be made by Ubisoft alone."
Title and image makes you think that a specific country is censoring it. But this will be buried because we can't have logic and reason in reddit.
I don't think so, unfortunately. It was revealed at Steam Dev Days that it will be powered by two AA batteries. And I assume the only logical reason there would even be a micro-USB or some other type of USB port on the controller would be for power purposes.
It also apparently will no longer have the touch screen as it was found distracting during beta testing. Kind of sucks but I understand they need this to be priced competitively with other controllers.
Here's the source: [link]
Alas, dealing with the potential backlash of any criticism is the media business' cross to bear. But it isn't something that affects editorial, at least not with any great frequency.
Believe me, I'd love nothing more than to report that every game is awesome, that every game is a 10, or that every game is must play. That would mean we'd be the luckiest gamers in the world. Of course, that's not the way these things work. I assure you, no one at IGN likes to score a game low. We take no pleasure in it. Similarly, we don't let however a publisher or PR person might respond or not affect the scoring process. At all. We don't score games high or low based on outside circumstances, we score games based on what they deserve. We score plenty of games in such a way (too low, according to a publisher) that would earn us "black-balled" status, as you mentioned, though that specifically sounds like a terribly painful experience so let's use the "blacklist" vernacular, shall we?
Here's an example: [link]
We took no pleasure in scoring these games low, but we also did so without fear of any business repercussions, access, advertising or otherwise. Now, a company may choose to pull advertising based on whatever whim they're motivated by, but we wouldn't know about it here in editorial. There is a hardline between sales and edit, and we don't even know what ads will be on the site on any given day. Similarly, with all of those games in that list, we haven't been blacklisted by any of the publishers, and some of those games are bog titles from big publishers. Capcom, Konami, Namco Bandai
I agree with you, no trustworthy critic's opinion should be for sale. I assure you, IGN and by extension, the major media sites out there, are not.
> Also I applaud Sony for not forgetting about their older consoles. Fifa 14 was released for the PS2.....
To be fair, I think it's more EA/other 3rd parties that are keeping the PS2 alive. Kind of like the Dreamcast.
Also, the entire Megaten series. Not just all the religious stuff, the game has blatant genital imagery. And I recall in SMT IV there was a "Famicon Arcade", I'm pretty sure that genericising their trademark in a game on their own system would ordinarily be a big no-no, I don't know how that got through lot check. Although, I think they give that game a lot of leeway because it's a big brand.
They've said they're not opposed to changing their policies, so hopefully they do that when it releases on PS4 and Vita.
That article does an absolutely terrible job at explaining specializations and makes it seem like they're classes or something. I recommend the wiki page instead, as it lists the unlocks available with each specialization: [link]
It's his word against the word of the developer. How do we know he didn't play the "epic last stage" and just didn't like it? And I doubt many of the people commenting on this have played PixelJunk Sidescroller or have any proof that Hatfield has done anything wrong. He has since written a blog post explaining that he did in fact play everything the game had to offer in casual and normal difficulty and the removed sentence has since been restored in the review.
There are plenty of legitimate reasons to hate on IGN. Making a big deal about petty shit like this just makes us look prejudiced and as though we are clutching at straws.
NBC said there was "a strong possibility" there was going to be a 7th season so I hope that actually happens
For all non-Americans wondering, no, you are not eligible.
From the rules:
>2. ELIGIBILITY: Contest is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and Washington, D.C. who are at least eighteen (18) years of age and have reached the legal age of majority in their state of primary residence at the time of entry. (...)
They changed their projection from 18 million 3DS units to 13.5 million
That's a huge change of expectations. A 4.5 million unit difference -- not 100,000. That's selling 25% less than what you thought you were going to sell
Not to mention he points out the hacked D3 accounts in May. These have continuously, over and and over again, been shown to be nothing more than just your typical hacked accounts but people keep bringing it up like some sort of conspiracy theory. Blizzard didn't take "the legally required steps to alert" players because there was nothing of interest there to alert.
No, it's pretty much just the slut shaming. The quest is about Haelga -- her niece hates her and wants to punish her, so she asks you to collect evidence from three different men that Haelga has slept with. You're to confront Haelga with the evidence and literally shame her. There's nothing wrong or dangerous about what Haelga is doing.
That said, you can choose to not do it. As we discussed previously on SRSGaming, though, there's really no obvious sign in the game that you doing that would be an immoral choice, in the same way that there are signs that theft and murder are immoral choices. For instance, completing the quest could have made everyone else in town think you're a shithole. Maybe it would reduce your chances of getting married. That would have been awesome.
EDIT: Oh, here's a great article about that quest.
I haven't seen this on other sites but ign has a longer 14-min video that shows more of the gameplay at the end:
Will digitally downloaded games be able to be pre-loaded before release, so that they're simply unlocked and ready to go at 12:01am on the day of release?
WHITTEN, CHIEF XBOX ONE PLATFORM ARCHITECT: Not at launch, but you’ll see us do this and much more over the life of the program.
Keep letting MS know we want this feature sooner rather than later.
I just saw something over at Teh Vestibule on IGN Boards where a guy who was on the board for over ten years and over 11,000 posts posted something about a dating website that 'wasn't filled with fake profiles'.
I don't know if it's legit or not (some replies say it isn't) but could this all be a new wave of marketing where people purchase the online idents of legitimate accounts in an attempt to push products that appear to have legitimacy behind them? Because I will say the first thing I looked at when I saw his post was when he joined and his post total.
Well, yes, calling a 7 "average" on a 10 point scale is a misnomer. On our scale, a 7 is "Good". Technically, you are correct, a 5 should be average (our 5 is "Mediocre").
We're actually rethinking our reviews, jump into the conversation right here: [link]
Oh, and here's our review scale, for your interests. [link]
It'll be $10, and I read a few rumors that it's around 2 hours of content. But what pisses me off is this:
>UPDATE: Warner Bros. has confirmed that Harley Quinn's Revenge will cost 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 on the PlayStation Network. <strong>Also, Robin won't be able to roam the entirety of Arkham City -- just this mission and his previously released challenge maps</strong>
come on! That's the whole reason I wanted to get the original robin and nightwing dlc, not for crappy challenge rooms but to free roam! Reading that changed my "must buy" to "wait for some reviews/when it drops in price". I'm so disappointed.
Link is right handed in Twilight Princess to avoid the cognitive disonance of controlling his sword with the Wiimote in the right hand (as most people are right handed).
But since it was developed as a Gamecube game first and ported to Wii, they didn't design it that way from scratch. They just flipped the world. You can notice that the sun/moon rise in the west and set in the east.
Intro from his blog
>A few years ago, 1UP laid off a bunch of people. The news spread through IGN fairly quickly. People shouted it over cubical walls and an email thread was started, but everyone kept saying that the real information was coming from laid off 1UPers posting on a website called Twitter. When I heard this, my response was simple: "What the fuck is Twitter?"
>Today's been a lot like that day. Early this morning, someone Tweeted at me (Ha!) to tell me that I was getting destroyed on Reddit. I wondered aloud: "What the fuck is Reddit?" Apparently, Reddit is a giant message board. One the entire Internet can use to talk about politics, science and gaming. There are also sections for "Pics" and "WTF."
Apparently he is aware of this submission where we ridicule his writing skills, poor gramma and his age .There are also archives and such.
I have a link for you

edit: I found an update recently that gave more of a time frame, but I can't seem to find it now.
Because they were attracting too many girls to the show, and they didn't sell enough toys.
I applaud your incredible patience.
IGN has a list of the top 100 SNES games, many of which have aged very well.
My personal favorites (mostly RPGs) include:
"I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we’ll lose some of the top-tier PCs, and OEMs who will exit the market." - Gabe Newell in an interview with IGN late July, 2012.
Personally, I think he has it all wrong. I've heard no news of any "top-tier PCs" or "OEMs" who are planning to "exit the market" because they're pessimistic about the success of Windows 8. Have any of you? Please link if so..
That eagle reminds me this eagle on Link's Awakening. Do you remember ?. BTW check this mini article on IGN.
i installed a bunch of mods one which made more dragons before i ever played the game.
it was cool and i never noticed anything wrong the whole time i played, just frequently had a dragon to kill...
i got to the part where you fight the boss dragon HERE and there was hundreds of dragons everywhere but i didnt know there wasnt supposed to be.
and spent hours slaying dragons... i killed at least 50 of them, quick saving, running, hiding, dying,quick loading getting frustrated i tried to run past them all a bunch of times to only have to fight them AND the boss dragon.
thinking it was glitched i loaded an old save and recaptured the dragon to fly there went through everything and then same thing hundreds of dragons... i was ready to quit when i realized it was one of the mods.
god that was a frustrating couple days
For the record, my review doesn't even reference the 1998 Thief or its sequels, and I deliberately didn't go back to replay them before doing this review. I treated this game as its own thing.
Edit: By the way, there's nothing that makes my opinion better than yours simply because I write for a website. As long as you can point to why you like or dislike something, your opinion is as good as anybody's. People are going to like what they're going to like, and no opinion, no matter how informed or insightful, is likely to change anybody else's when it comes to what they find enjoyable.
Remember: Roger Ebert didn't like The Usual Suspects, but that doesn't make it less of a great movie, nor does it make him wrong. It means that Roger Ebert didn't like The Usual Suspects. We get to read his opinion and see why he didn't like it, but we don't have to agree with him.
He said "He's Done With Disc-Based Games". You can still make big blockbuster games as a download but he is clearly saying free to play is the future of games.
> Each crowd member has a higher poly count than the actual players in the PS3 version, and with all that extra RAM, they’ve pushed the number of different faces from 48 to 300. By next year, they’ll have added another zero to the end of that figure.
From the IGN article covering this game
I still hold a grudge when IGN featured that damn article about how LOL is better than DOTA. [link]
so I'm still holding my hope on this stream. You will get my upvote when I see the site as something more credible again.
This tournament, taking place at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, has a prize pool of $100,000 for SC2.
Since this interview she has beat another big name in a 2-0 shutout. Her next match is against one of the undisputed best Protoss players in the world. It will be televised.
better quality on the ign main site.
I'm assuming they took down the youtube version because something got messed up with the encoding and the quality was terrible.
Two words, my friend: Dead Island.
> *Dead Island will feature open world gameplay, played from a first person perspective, with up to four-player co-operative play. The focus will be on melee combat, incorporating customizable weaponry and RPG elements.
> *There is an experience system and a skill tree system. There is also a stamina bar, meaning that after a set amount of action with a weapon, the character will need to stop to regain their stamina before continuing to attack. It has also been confirmed that there are "special class" zombies, which are more powerful than the standard enemies.
It's supposed to be released on 360, PS3, and PC sometime this Fall.
Here's a cinematic trailer if you're interested.
The best out of the 5 headhunters IMO. The boss fight was engaging and nostalgic :) Also Brick's in it, so that pretty much covers it.
Mordecai fans especially will like it... There's a lot more but I don't wanna spoil too much...
Edit : Looks like they put a preview on IGN : [link]
A review from the time.
The reason it is hated rather than ignored as other mediocre games is likely due to how it was advertised.
In Perfect Dark for the N64, it was prudent to destroy security cameras as soon as you saw them. (And again on the re-release on Xbox Arcade, there's an achievement for it).
Anyway, every time I saw a security camera hanging off the side of a building, I would instinctively think "I need to shoot that!" Then I would realize how dumb that was and feel a little embarrassed.
I don't really understand the fuss about lack of games. I have more than I can play atm and in the coming 9 months we have Warrior's Lair, Soul Sacrifice, Ragnarok, AC: Liberation, Killzone, Tearaway, COD and more! And thanks to LBP there will from now on always be a endless supply of platforming/physics/puzzle games at hand. I expect that the future 3rd party support strongly depends on the sales this holiday season, so if I were you, I wouldn't spend so much time worrying and spend more time enjoying the games and spreading the word. Tons of people don't have a clue what a "vita" even is, that's the real problem right now.
Although they haven't actually announced a release date the Autumn 2013 Beta announcement heavily indicates a holiday 2013 release.
When is SW:TOR going F2P? Where did you get that from? I've read that they are 'slowly' embracing or 'looking at' the F2P model, but not going 100% F2P so soon.
I just bought SW:TOR a week ago and I'm enjoying the hell out of it.
Edit: June 15th, 2012 IGN article about SWTOR and F2P
ZombiU is a first person shooter for the WiiU. It looks like the touch screen thingy is only used for a map and inventory and stuff, but other than that it's just like a really wide pro controller.
Funny MKP said that Stephano is a genius at SC2 but he lacks opponent analysis or something like that. If he indeed is helped and is going to practice WITH the players and not just stay there, he can become a real beast.
This was posted after announcing that he is "quitting public life" after caught plagiarizing.
Lets me try to clear up some confusion, I think m_darkTemplar is referring to how the android phones have turn-by-turn and automatic reroute which are things that Google kept from the Apple i0S version of Google maps. If I am wrong there I apologize.
As a sidenote if you have iOS 6 and want google maps here is a link on how to get it.
Doesn't necessarily take a lot of effort or time, if you don't take into consideration saving up the amount of gold required.
Hope this helps somewhat.

I read in IGN's hands-on experience with the controller that it is indeed very lightweight and does not feel awkward in your hands.
They actually just posted a hands on video as well:
Three new trailers -
IGN is a piece of crap.
They posted the following on Twitter yesterday:
"Fun fact: For the time being, our website is being run on the PSN. [link]"
The original source has been deleted and all i can find are "retweets".
They are just further adding to the bullshit, lies and nonsense about PSN and Sony that is currently being spread around the internet mainly through twitter and various blog sites; seriously pathetic bunch of so called journalists.
Impressive quote from Arthur C. Clarke considering he's been dead for five years.
The quote is actually from 'moviekingreviewer' found here.
There are more than 2 games right now that run at 30fps on the PS4. Looks like Thief will also run at 30fps. The split is closer to 50/50 at the moment.
