Audio recordings/random scattered diaries are generally bullshit. I mean, I loved the shit out of the journals in Honest Hearts, but they're a really lazy convention.

I think it works for Bioshock since you seem to always be showing up right in the middle or right after the big events and for those games, that backstory is usually important.

Audio diaries do crack me up. I just imagine someone recording this random fact about their life and then throwing the recording randomly into the street.

Not really my place to say. Big, very active, very diverse, very heavily moderated. "Extras" like searching and PMs cost even more money.

What are all the "extras" that you don't get with a basic membership?

And always in such easily digestible quantities.

"Oh, shit! I used up my 45-second tape recording! Better leave it on the table and start a new one in the hallway!"

Paying $5 for an avatar.

Paying $10 to change another persons avatar.

PMs (send or receive) and the ability to search are another ten dollars. The ability to read a thread that hasn't been posted in for a long time and isn't archived in the goldmine/gas chamber is another ten. An avatar/title combo is five, and anybody else can spend ten to replace yours with something of their choice.

their actually usually in places where people
would realistically leave them
such as offices, bedrooms, ect.

Also given several circumstances in the game
it seems completely reasonable that some people
stopped what they were doing and dropped/forgot about the recorder

While I find it a bit silly, I still like them.

They're not the worst way to tell a story in a video game.

I just don't have the patience for them, especially when the game does such a great job of making the world look as interesting as it does. It's like pausing a film, turning the theater lights on, and being handed a cassette player.

but they only add to whats happening in the environment
plus u should be listening to them while looking for loots.

its like bubba gump
you can watch forest do his thing
but there are interesting things in sidelines that add perspective to the story

the only bad thing about the vinographs is that elizabeth will start
blabbering in her california board girl voice when imt trying to listen to dat shit

Nobody should have ever taken him seriously in the first place.

For anyone who cares about the Skullgirls DLC character votes (Joel):



Good to see 3 of the 4 I voted for in the running.



Unless you want DoA Beach Volleyball: Fighter Edition, I'd stick with the game that has a pedigree -- TTT2 without a doubt. ;)


Right, just waiting for TTT 2 to fall below $20.

A good part of the story is told through the vexographs or w/e they're called. I had to wiki the Fuck happened at the end and who those people were

Bioshock Infinite has an amazing story. It just doesn't seem that way if you skip out on the voxophones. I can only think of one thing that wasn't really explained all that much
Spoiler
.

I personally dislike collectibles because most developers add them to try to lengthen the game. Games like Bioshock, however, add them to expand the story, and that I really don't mind.

Why the hell would I go around killing damn pigeons in GTA IV? What's the point of that?

Waiting for Vita version this summer and will cop it eventually on Steam too. Not going to pay $15 for PSN (or even $11.25 for a Steam copy) though.

I paid for an account there so I could post.
There's some amusing shit that pops up in General Bullshit.

So this pretty much confirms used games banned then? Why would you need an internet connection to start a game?

I wonder how many people will just talk the talk and not really go through of not buying an xbox because you can't play used games?

is this the same website that lied about knowing ac 4 black flag was a thing for like an entire week?
in order to generate more page views out of the same story?

Kotakus "sources" consists of an unpaid intern reading redditt for 4 hours a day
