    So can we try to hash out this thing about you thinking I always insult you instead of criticizing your arguments? I'm really not sure where this started, and I was actually being very careful, and have been in general lately in all threads because I do know it's something I can sometimes slip into, to only criticize your arguments. I've looked back at my post in that thread and I'm not seeing anything insulting you. I may have been a bit blunt in judging your statements, but I've never been one to beat around the bush with that stuff.

    Honestly, I'm not sure where this comes from man. For years I've actually respected you and enjoyed debating with you. I even thought we were friends for the longest time until the first time you brought this up. It was a complete shock to me at the time but I've still tried to be cognizant of it ever since. I just want to try and find a way to bury the hatchet so to speak. If it is just my usual bluntness that's getting to you then fair enough, but I thought you might like to talk about it with me and this is probably a better place than that thread in hindsight. I'm more than willing to discuss this and even tone it down a bit if that's what's bothering you.

    Again, I like and respect you so I'd honestly like to put this to rest.

    Well, cool. Honestly, I don't know why I made a fuss about it, as the game didn't interest me, nor have any of Dice's works. Just not my genre of choice.

    Don't be afraid to share if you've found a less hostile place to discuss games, though!

    If I may ask, what is your own opinion compared to this review:
  4. View Conversation
    It does indeed appear that I lost. Only massive bug is one that forces bypassing the router and plugging straight into your modem in order to go online on NAT PC configurations. Oh well.

    Although, from what I've heard, there is effectively no single player, and a lot of multiplayer modes are lackluster, except walker assault.

    Sorry if I triggered something there. I was wrong, okay, I'll admit that. But you came out swinging and name calling, which isn't like you at all. I don't know why it's such a touchy subject, but it made me feel incredibly uncomfortable and defensive immediately. Seriously, you okay, Bolivar?

    Also, you haven't told me what tag you want me to use. I'm not conceding victory yet, but I'm certainly prepared to get ready (how do I change a tag again?). I'm not expecting unbiased reports from the people who signed up for EA Access. Anyone willing to pay extra to get to beta test EA's products are not a fair test sample, especially since it's a small sample size. Though, admittedly, staggering the download does help ensure that there are as few server load problems as possible. Let's check out the actual release and see if I do have to change it (also, how long did we agree to? Or did we?).

    My gosh, you're a hostile and insensitive jackass today. WTF has climbed up your rear end? Next time I ask you to leave a matter to PMs, please do so. As it is, as soon as I find a way to ignore a user, you're going on to that list. I don't know what the hell is wrong, but you need to fix it, dude.

    Well it seems some are not really respectable of others opinions a little bit. Don't worry it happens on No Mutants Allowed too. A few assholes there seem more intent on shoving their opinion in your face than any other. But I will tell you, it's not as bad as the last site I was which was straight up Anarchy. No moderators and straight up mobbish. I guess it's nice to bring some differing opinions on things here. Maybe it keeps things heterogenus.

    Agreed. I think about that feeling you get when you leave Midgard for the first time and get to really see the world and think to myself that today's games couldn't do the exact same thing and get that kind of reaction. It will be interesting to see how it pans out at least.

Fall Gaming (It's the most wonderful tiiime...)

by Bolivar on 11-13-2013 at 04:36 AM
Attachment 48378

So here it is - Q4, the Holiday season, the last chance gaming companies have to put their balance sheets in the black by overloading us with the biggest blockbusters all at once. This is a strange Q4 in particular for a number of obvious and subtle reasons so it should be interesting to see what gaming culture looks like when we come out on the other side early next year.

Pre-Game Rituals

by Bolivar on 11-12-2012 at 06:41 AM


No, not that kind.



And not that kind either (but if you need to know, yes, we do pregame harder than you party (no that's not me)).

I'm talking about those most exciting moments for a gamer: the day before a long-awaited launch.
