How do you even "reboot" Underworld?

Underwoirld done in a different style is just another brand of vampires vs. werewolves.

Werewolves and vampires hide underground from humans who kill them and sell their flesh as fine cuisine - mainly sushis.

Someone pointed out how absurd it is that swatting is even possible... like the police don't mind sending out an entire fully armed SWAT team on an anonymous tip? They don't actually look into the tip before sending in the cavalry?

This one ended nicely too. There are several case of SWATing that have left sequels.

Here's a popular one due to how fucked it left an entire family: http://www.salon.com/2014/06/24/a_swat_team_blew_a_hole_in_my_2_year_old_son/
(not SWATing per say, but SWAT assault for nothing)

Sorry to bring this shit back into this thread, but it's just so damn entertaining.

Just an average female gamer to troll everyone.
All the tards in the media will expect some sort of pedocrap or LOLSORANDOM shit and we will just give them a simple average girl.

And I just say enough with all the awfulness

So here's a bunch of commenters passionately defending Hello Kitty's identity as a cat.

If you tell me that Hello Kitty is a normal human girl and not an anthropomorphized cat... I can only view her has such:

Too much Zoe Quinn, not enough Anita Sarkeesian

An interesting read, but I don't support the call in there to go refuse the game on Greenlight.
Even though, as stated, the SJWs probably flooded the game with positive responses, it is still malignant to flood it with negative ones as a counter movement.
What should matter is the actual quality of the game and nothing else.

People always mix their agendas and their cause.
Doing evil to counter another one does not make right.

Also, having Neogaf stated as a feminist site is not entirely accurate.
Neogaf is a site with minorities (of any kind) where mods tend to side with the minorities and ban anyone showing any hint of non-conformism to their ideas for reasons I know not.

Although, maybe I'm speaking out of my ass, being a privileged, heterosexual, white male of average income, college education and locally accepted religious beliefs.
(Speaking of which, I never understood the idea of calling it 'privileged' as that would mean those called out are treated higher than basic social decency which is what I believe everyone should have. Instead of calling the group treated normally as 'privileged', wouldn't it make more sense to call those treated any lower than what is normal 'restricted' or perhaps 'deprived'?)

"Their attitude is, 'okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.' It's kind of a passive attitude they're taking, and to me it's kind of a pathetic thing. They do not know how interesting it is if you move one step further and try to challenge yourself [with more advanced games]."

Nintendo to drop casuals and focus on core.
(casuals all have iPad and iPhones anyway)

The Walking Dead Season 2 is 60% OFF on Steam till the 29th.

That's 9.99$ (24.99$)
The last episode is also releasing right about now.

Part of my job is to offer support to users. We give great support for our system (and we're only 2 people doing it)
Most issues are fixed within 24 hours and we offer direct support and Skype sessions on request for bigger issues.

Today I had to call another company for their support on a software we use.
I got forwarded to some shitty call center in a 3rd world country with phone lines made of paper-maché and people who learned English on cereal boxes.

It pisses me off so much that I bust my ass to solve people's problems and yet, apparently the rest of the world doesn't do shit to help and flips the finger.
(this is paid support too, 10,000$ a year)

http://www.siliconera.com/2014/08/26/capcom-suing-koei-tecmo-patent-infringement/

I should be wary about the validity of such a story given Siliconera's love of sensationalism horseshit, but this is hilariously scuzzy of Crapcom to pull such a massive dick move if true.
Quote
Additionally, another patent mentioned in the report is a controller-vibrating notification feature when enemy characters are nearby. Capcom claims that the patent infringement “has greatly contributed to the sales” of Koei Tecmo’s titles.



I've never understood how the people who write bullshit like that can live with themselves.

Zoe Quinn was dating a guy.
Guy found out Zoe Quinn was cheating on him with at least 5 confirmed other guy.
Guy made a website where he explains that she's a total slut and liar and people should be wary of entering a relationship with her.
One of the guy in question was a Kotaku reviewer (Nathan Grayson).
Somehow there was misinformation about him reviewing Depression Quest (which he did not, but he did write about Game Jam where it was mentioned as one game present although that was before their affair anyway)
People are outraged at how Zoe Quinn slept with the press for better reviews of her free game. (which is based on misinformation - see Klutz above lol)

Website by the ex-boyfriend:
http://thezoepost.wordpress.com/

Kotaku chief editor about Nathan Grayson:
http://kotaku.com/in-recent-days-ive-been-asked-several-times-about-a-pos-1624707346

So other than being a terrible person, which there are plenty of in this world, there's nothing really special about her.

^I just want to keep enjoying streams like I've been doing with not much (or any preferably) kind of BS getting in the way of the experience.

Also that list seems to have forgotten virtually everybody from Destiny and Rebirth (and all but Eternia's MC). I'm certain that with the next game, most of the top 10 will get shuffled down in favor of the MCs of the season. Also, who the hell came in 25th?

More people have played the latest titles as opposed to the older ones.
It's always the same thing with popularity polls on long running series.

I remember recent polls on FF having FFXIII characters on the top spots when there is literally a backlog of 20+ characters I'd put before them.

I don't see that listed on the VNDB and they're usually pretty thorough...

This one: http://vndb.org/r8856
The English translation doesn't cover the whole title.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Clannad on: August 25, 2014, 12:58:57 AM
There isn't? The things I learn.
I always thought there was one. I mean, there's a version that has "all age" in the title (Clannad: all ages memorial edition).

What did they cut in that one?
