It's the essence of moisture

I hate these huge patches, especially just after you buy the game, but would I prefer the game was late? Probably not.

Interesting, I loaded up the Darksiders II disc in my pile of shame on my 360 for the first time ever the other day and not a single patch. All that time for release, and game was just fine from day one.

Excellent news; the original was one of my guilty pleasures of 2014. Worth checking out if you missed it.

They should start bundling hard drives with games!!

People don't click reviews, they click opinion pieces.

No of course not. I'm just talking in general here, not about this article particularly. Just trying to help answer the question, "why is games journalism getting worse."

285d ago 1 agree0 disagreeView comment

Well places like N4G are a big reason why games journalism is going downhill. They reward mediocre writing with traffic based on a headline. Traffic earns ads. These ads then disappear from sites with good content. Those sites then pay writers less. Good writers then move on to other fields that pay well. The bar for quality begins to dip, but more importantly, experience is lost. Now you end up with 18-year old YouTubers who were too young to even own a PS2 getting paid tens of thousands to ...

Was the scene changed in the end? I got the impression that it was as intended in the final game?

Why? Those kind of scenes appear in films all the time to help a character like Lara find the resolve to survive. We spend way too much time in gaming trying not to step on toes and not enough time embracing what it means to be a true medium for artistic expression - which is no barriers.

Yeah I used it. It was pretty uncomfortable to wear; seemed way off final commercial release. It was really fun seeing the holographic stuff everywhere, but after a while I wanted to just sit down and shoot someone.

Of course it shouldn't - that was the biggest non-controversy ever. And the scene was so not a problem. We've been screwing and then killing prostitutes in GTA for years for crying out loud!

Excellent points all. In fact, i reckon that Star Citizen can't help but fail now. Expectations are unreasonable.

Excellent! Thanks for the tip! I may try and read that before Halo 5.

Has anyone read the books? Are they any good - got a pointer on where to start? Never been that interested, but it sounds like they might be quite epic.

343 has sold Halo's soul by putting the focus on 60fp. Halo's spiritual home is splitscreen; you don't ditch that for anything.

I'd be happy if they just came out and said we're patching splitscreen in during 2016, but they're not. Instead they are saying they build a whole new engine, and didn't bother with including splitscreen at all. Sucks.

Some good points. 343 is owned by Microsoft too, right.

Well we don't know that yet - the Halo 4 story was weak

This really is terribly hard to understand. When it's obvious what the price should be, why is it different? These are digitally distributed - there is no on the ground costs to be worried about.

Sounds intriguing, although the idea of player choice impacted gameplay and it actually happening are often two very different things.

I find this kind of hard to believe unfortunately. The series is too important to not be influenced. Hence why things like splitscreen were dropped - that is what the fans want, but doesn't get people buying Xbox Live does it.
