See I'd agree with you on that except in AC:O, you can play Kassandra as the most lesbian lesbian whoever lesbianed and it doesn't affect the game's story at all.  This?  This basically takes all that away and spits on any good will the game built up.

Ironbite-I know it's just how people precieve the character but this seems just needless.

Well, I got back into and actually managed to finish ELEX. It was alright, but is still outshone by Gothic 2. I guess we all have to accept the fact that Piranha Bytes peaked in 2003.

Well, Anthem's having some serious issues already. How bad is it? It accidentally DDoS attacked EA!

It's EA. They'll find a way.

Also: *Bethesda and Ubisoft* Man, we really fucked up, huh? No one is gonna surpass this soon.

*EA* Hold my beer.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

The never-ending march of AAA fuck-ups continues. A true parade of "you have enough experience and money to avoid this, and yet still here we are thanks to your greed and incompetence."

Christ, Episode Prompto is the single saddest thing I've played in a long time... and its just a DLC for Final Fantasy XV.  Hats off to whoever wrote it, they did damn well.

There is a frustrating thing in online collectible card games that tends to make me tired of them fairly fast: the match making algorithm. It is supposed to pick about equal decks to set against each other but that illusion breaks up if you pay any attention.

MtG:Arena is the latest one I've played and due to the generous amount of cards it gives it's easy to try different decks. In fact, the quest system openly encourages this. When you make a new deck the logic behind the algorithm becomes clear. You play a few games and if your deck works you get a few wins, maybe even a streak - until suddenly you hit a wall. The decks you are put against are not only noticeably stronger than yours but also work on the same logic as yours. Suddenly you get frustrated and see all those cards that could improve your deck... You try a different deck and the result is the same: first you get random decks against you and then suddenly a lot of similar decks even if you had never or rarely encountered those before.

Fuck that. It not only makes me angry about the way I lost but takes away a lot of the pleasure from the games I win. How many of those are the result of the algorithm setting me against decks against which I have an unfair advantage?

EA's stock plummeted almost 20% thanks to a terrible holiday quarter.

Good.

Trouble is when shit like this happens companies have a tendancy to fire lower level staff whilst the ones in charge, IE the ones whose fault it actually is, face no consqequences. They carry on earning obscene amounts of money in exchange for incompetence.

Meanwhile Paradox is doing great AND they aren't firing people left and right to make even more money for investors.

Also, this one starts of silly and quickly goes to stupid. Troll or not?

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!
