For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
With our office closed and a new location filled with tons of furniture and gaming memories, it's time to recap some of the news we didn't get to... all... day... long.
Apparently a young man in Denver overreacted just a teeny tiny bit. Like... you know how you run out of peanut butter right in the middle of making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Well, he overreacted a bit more than that... but less than how America went into Iraq looking for WMDs. OK, here's the thing... I mean... he threatened to blow up a Best Buy and murder all the employees because they didn't have his preordered copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.... WHO WOULDN'T threaten that? C'mon!
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is supposed to have Kinect features. I don't know what they are! Who the fuck cares? Someone does... because they bothered to ask why the Kinect features aren't on the back of the box! That's how you know they cared! They actually bothered to ask. Instead of being on the disc where you might look for them, Kinect integration to the Halo remake is relegated to a day 1 patch to give the developers the most time to "focus on quality." Sure... Kinect... quality.... BHAHAHAHAHA.
Xbox.com apparently received an update.... I honestly can't tell the difference.... Seriously! What's different? I can't FUCKING SEE A DIFFERENCE! Sure, I never went to Xbox.com before, but I mean still... is there even a difference?! Oh... there is. OK. Fine.
If the delay for Assassin's Creed: Revelations on PC means that Ubisoft will drop the always-online DRM they've used for previous iterations, is it worth the wait? UM YES OH THANK THE WEIRD ALIEN GODS WHO ARE LIKE PULLING THE STRINGS BEHIND ALL THE ASSASSIN VS TEMPLAR STUFF LIKE WHAT THE FUCK ARE THOSE THINGS ARE THEY FUTURE PEOPLE AND NOW LIKE EZIO IS GOING TO DIE AND BECOME A NEW ALIEN GOD FUCK WHAT AM I EVEN SAYING. Oh yes, no more horrible DRM for Assassin's Creed: Revelations on PC.
