So, is anyone actually having fun playing this? Everything I read about it, makes the whole thing sound like a massive chore (like most MMO's). That does not equate to "fun" imho. I rented the game, but couldn't even bring myself to play it, and just returned it the next day, so I could play more Dark Souls.

My gf rented Destiny for me to check out while I was recovering from strep throat this week. Well I also had a craving to revisit Half Life 2 so I started installing that, watched a movie with her, went to install Destiny, then went and played Half Life while that was installing. Ended up playing Half Life 2 for like… » 9/19/14 7:40pm 9/19/14 7:40pm

I think it has a lot to do with the falling out SOJ had with SOA in the early 2000's, after the DC's failure.

From what I can tell Japan doesn't trust their U.S. branch very much, and especially not with franchises they see as not being appealing to Western audiences. The original Yakuza barely sold here, since it was… » 9/18/14 11:16pm 9/18/14 11:16pm

This is actually good news, because if ISIS is recruiting Call of Duty players they are doomed. They should be going for the ARMA fans, since those games are about as close to real world combat as we've yet seen.

Let a bunch of kids run around thinking that they will recover their health by hiding behind a wall for 5… » 9/18/14 1:24pm 9/18/14 1:24pm

Something people need to realize about this trailer, is that it is very unlikely the whole game is a Bromance Road Trip. Look at every single Final Fantasy before this one, they are all different, set in different worlds, with different levels of technology. And they all have various phases of the story where… » 9/18/14 1:05pm 9/18/14 1:05pm

Holy Shit people. VIDEO GAMES!!! Get a grip on reality. You aren't overthrowing a corrupt dictatorship in some 3rd world country. Did the movie industry ever go through growing pangs of this magnitude? Everyday I feel more and more disgusted I have to share this planet with so many psychopaths. » 9/17/14 11:56pm 9/17/14 11:56pm

I was all like... this is super dorky, until I saw the dude dressed as one of The Nameless from Valkyria Chronicles III, at which point I reminded myself of what a huge dork I am, and realized I was just jelly I didn't get to run around an Aircraft Carrier dressed like Snake. :P

And then I saw the last bit, and now… » 9/14/14 5:36pm 9/14/14 5:36pm
