It would be hilarious if someone tried to mod the Asian out of the game though.

 

I just crank up the contrast and brightness until everyone is a uniform shade of glaring white.

Aren't xenophobes by definition anti-immigrant? Or is it implying that not all people opposed to open-borders immigration are xenophobes (something I can agree with personally).

 

Your reviews are like the polar opposite of SecretSquirrel's, but appreciated. Thanks to thelostminer for the laugh as well.

You may be spot-on about him not taking his meds today. From thelostminer's Steam profile ->

you probably know my regular account, haydron, yes i'm haydron, the kid with the problems with the built-in mic in my computer. Im a person who wants to have fun, likes playing games, looking for the next-gen of entertainment, having some great ideas of entertainment, and technology. a creative person, yet something is still missing in my life though i have no clue what. on another note i might possibly have a letsplay channel with a friend of mine on twitch and/or youtube so ill try to show updates on the progress. (:

And from a comment on his profile:

I was thinking more along the lines of a bad anime dub where all the asian food is hot dogs, hamburgers and pb&js. Completely whitewashed locale/dialogue.

n00b. The way to play games is to crank the contrast and brightness all the way down. Or better yet, turn off your monitor.

Once you go black, you never go back.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

I wanna know why these originals were remade:

District B13 -> Brick Mansions;

Let the Right One In -> Let Me In.

Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish version) -> Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (USA version);

Oldboy (foreign version) -> Oldboy (USA version).

 

EDIT:


The new Robocop looks more like Cyclops from X-Men.

That Windows version - did EA make that? ;)

Nice retrospective on Eurogamer on Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines....

w/ Brian Mitsoda formerly of Troika Games (lead writer on Bloodlines; currently working on indie-game Dead State);

and " Wesp5" Werner Spahl (the maker of his Unofficial Patches for Vampire: Bloodlines, White Gold + The Precursors).

I tried playing V:tM Bloodlines once and remember it being ugly and clunky, even with the recommended 3rd party patch.  Maybe I should try revisiting it some day since it gets lauded so often but Steam tells me that I only made it 72 minutes in last time.

@Syntax

 

Bloodlines opens up a bit, after the tutorials. There's A LOT of hand-holding, in the tutorial. Unfortunately - that hand-holding could turn people off. I do think - gamers should give it a chance and get through the tutorial; just like any other game that has a tutorial.

 

If you dug Deus Ex 1 - stick with it. Just like that game, it does take a little bit to get going; namely, once you get out the tutorial level.

 

Yes, V:TM-B is a bit clunky, combat-wise - just like Deus Ex 1; especially when compared to modern games. And yes - V:TM-B relies too much on dice-rolls and stat-checks - especially when you're shooting things in the face and getting same amount of damage as if you shot someone in the leg, chest, or anywhere else. But, many of the early mixes of RPG's and FPS's/TPS's were doing this, back then. Hell - even Mass Effect 1 and Alpha Protocol also relied to heavily on stat-checks + dice-rolls, given the way the combat feels (i.e. like a FPS, when shooting things).

 

Hell - if you don't like the gun-based combat and think that's too clunky, you might wanna focus on melee weapons. Control-wise - that always felt smoother here.

 

V:TM-B's storytelling, prose, dialogue, writing, narrative, decision-making, licensed music, traditional score music, and voice-acting is superb. This is the real reason to stick w/ the game. If you appreciate that stuff - I suggest you do give it a chance.

 

Some of my favorite moments in gaming - the final result(s) of the quest-line about The Two Sisters running the Asylum bar and especially the Ocean View Haunted House level - they've come from this game.

 

EDIT:

Fixed the "hold-handing" and "hand-holding" slip-up.

I just finished DA:O - Leilana's Song DLC.

 

While I did like the DLC (took around 4-5 hours for me, approximately), I'm only disappointed that there wasn't a real song from her. ;) For a bard/rogue, that felt so missing. ;)

 

Unless I should be counting that credits song... ;)

RE: V:tM-B

 

Yeah, I'm sure it gets all the praise for a reason.  I think that a sad fact of gaming is that some games that excel in plot or whatever suffer for graphics and mechanics as they age and it can be a hard hurdle to get back into them if you weren't there when they released and before they aged.  I don't remember specific complaints that turned me off and I'm familiar with and like the White Wolf World of Darkness setting so there should be an immediate hook there (I still own the old 1st ed V:tM source book) but apparently I played 72 minutes of it and moved on.  It probably deserves a second look.

Daily Deal
Sleeping Dogs - $19.99 $3.99

 

Damn, any cheaper and it will be in a bundle... 

 

 

Live with your OCD or don't. We can not help you.

But we can and WILL mock you if you cave...  Steam Deal or gtfo...  (Actually, not sure if you have redbox or something similar up their but a few bucks to rent on the PS4 would be a fairly savvy move.)

 

 

I don't doubt anyone else's experiences but you people have had about a bajillion times more trouble with Uplay than I ever have.

Guessing you're the smart guy who doesn't use it? :)  (In all honesty, I don't use it often but I've never had much issue with it...  partying up in Trials Evolution for MP was horribly done.)

 

 

great, now i have to watch robocop 

I got the remastered version on Blu-Ray before the remake came out...  Well, worth it.  and highly recommended.

Assuming it sells well, Steam Summer Sale will be like 15% off on it (20% for the Daily!) or something lame like that.
