Hack, I was tempted to apply until I realised that I'll be on vacation with no access to my PC during the recruitment phase. Shame :(

I played the training levels of HotS and decided that's not my type of game.  Sad to hear that the people are jerks too.

Even though it's down to $30 on console, if you're not working, you probably have better things to spend those $30 on.  Not a fun choice, but you're making the right one.

Wait, what's down to $30 on console?
Never mind, I figured it out. Geez, this thread is all over the place.

Wonder what the odds of an isometric fallout are.

Last I've heard of this game, TB was using it to test out Steams new refund system. Apparently, it had bugs or something.
Out of curiosity, what comments did Tim make?

Didn't they release some DLC that "fixed" the endings in Mass Effect 3?

Call me crazy but I kind of prefer the smaller scale of witcher 2. Why must every RPG be trying to emulate skyrim, theres only so much running around I can take. And this is from someone who loves skyrim/fallout.

I don't own the game yet (not sure I can run it well enough), but I have watched a friend of mine play it on the PS4 and it was actually fun to spectate because of how story driven it is.
At times it was easy to forget it's a game.
Never really felt like he had to do a lot of running around to find anything of interest.

The name is terrible, but apparently that boat has sailed on that one.
Not sure why you decided to promote the game here of all places, but at least you're replying.
I took a look at the video. I'm not sure how far along in the development cycle you are, but it looks like none of the cars control very well and even though you claim that each series has completely different behaviours I honestly can't see it in the video.
Graphics are ok, and I like the art direction on some of the levels but overall it lacks character. So far everything about it screams "generic kart racer". Good luck though, with time and effort you might hit the sweet spot eventually.

So, some of you may have noticed that I've mentioned playing DC: Infinite Crisis quite a few times over the past month or two.
Looks like that's about to stop as today the team behind the game announced this little nugget:

After much deliberation, we regret to announce the official shutdown of Infinite Crisis. We will end development efforts today and will close the service on August 14, 2015.

Between now and August 14th, the game will remain available to play completely free. If you have any questions, contact Customer Service for assistance at http://support.infinitecrisis.com.
Steam Customer Support will refund any customer who purchased either The Starter Pack or The Elite Pack. To request a refund, please follow the instructions here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6345-QIDX-7244.

This was an extremely difficult decision to make. On behalf of the entire Infinite Crisis team we want to thank all of you for your feedback, support and for joining together to create one of the best communities in gaming.

Sad to see the game kick the bucket after only a few months (afaik it came out in March).
Plus...I liked it :(

I've never dated, and I still refuse to look for companionship until I resolve my self-confidence issues.

Working up the guts to ask a girl out, learning to deal with possible rejection and taking the plunge and committing to a relationship will do wonders for your self-confidence issues. I don't know the full extent of your problems, but I will tell you that waiting until you've got "everything sorted" is a fairly long, if not endless wait.

At this point, as long as she accepts my video game habit, she's a winner in my book. I would be thrilled to have her play with me, but what's the saying...can't have your cake and play video games too? Some shit like that, lol.

Good luck with that one :)
Anyhow, you are making a bit of a miscalculation here. You'll quickly find that once you have a girlfriend, you wont be playing nearly as much videogames anyway.

Battling issues with games from the Tomb Raider Ultimate Edition.

The original has a bug that will warp me back two levels at a certain point in the game, groundhog day style. After doing some digging around the web, it turned out that a lot of people (possibly everyone) who bought the same edition I did have the same issue. Sadly, even using the level skip produces the same result.
Apparently the publisher released a patch to fix this, but I can't find it anywhere on their site.

Tomb Raider II has a different set of issues, with the FMVs not playing unless I'm running the game in full screen mode, which took a moment to figure out. Then I had some problems with stuttering until I realized that it was due to a custom key I bound, that did something while running the game in full screen, I just wasn't sure what it was because it's not stated in the manual (turned out to be print screen, thanks internet).

Then there was a problem with DRM crashing on Tomb Raider Anniversary making it impossible to launch, though that was only a problem on my old PC some years ago.

At the moment the only game I tried from the pack and managed to complete with no issues was Legend.
Ah well, with my TR2 issues sorted I'm going to give that a go.

But first, it's time for some Infinite Crisis :)

I feel bad for the mom and hope their day got a better after that little incident, but I wonder, what's the proper response in that kind of situation anyway? For the one on the recieving end of the punch, I mean.

A televised lawsuit :)

I'm sure this was posted before, but just in case...
Can you handle the Kung Fury?
Yes, its real and coming to Youtube on the 28th.
I rate it Hasselhoff/10
It is now your solemn duty to inform us all, here in this thread, of its release on the 28th.

It's out, not as awesome as the trailer but still a healthy dose of insanity. Probably best that they didn't go for a full length picture though.

I beat Pokemon Y last night. I was disappointed in how easy it was. It roughly only took me 6 hours from getting the 5th page to beating the Elite 4 and Champion. I was able to defeat the E4 and Champion on the first try, which surprised me. Ever since Ruby, I've usually had to spend a couple of hours power leveling a couple of Pokemon by retrying the E4 over and over until certain Pokemon were at a high enough level to where I could go through the E4 pretty easily, just using some Revives and Hyper Potions. However, I think I only had two Pokemon faint the whole time during the E4.

I was super excited when I got Pokemon Red as a kid (the cartoon did its job), but ended up being somewhat disappointed with the game. These days whenever I attempt to play a game from the franchise I'm bored to tears within minutes. The games have very little in terms of story and gameplay variety. To me, Pokemon essentially boils down to one giant grind fest.
It's not that I don't see the appeal, but I can't seem to get into these games.

Dug up my Tombraider collection and installed Tomb Raider 1. Had to do a little tampering with the DosBox config file to stop the game going nuts when a pad is connected (Yep, it comes packaged with Dosbox, that's how old TR1 is).
Maybe I'm wearing my nostalgia glasses but my goodness that game holds up well.

There's absolutely no grinding in X/Y unless you want to. You can go from trainer to trainer because you get EXP Share real early on, in which non-combatants get 50% EXP. Honestly, only the first two generations really required any grinding because there were "difficulty" spikes between each gym leader, and then a considerable level gap between the last gym leader and the Elite 4. Since Generation 3, I've roughly only spent about 15 hours on each campaign. The starts since Gen 3 are too OP. You generally just need the fire starter and can whip the shit out of anyone, however, in Gen 4, the grass starter is the best one (since it's final form can learn Earthquake, so you can take out just about anyone with one Pokemon in that game).

I didn't mean that the game require grinding, I meant that the game is grinding. All of it, the entire premise ... just grinding.
It's just not for me, at least not any more.

There are currently two things stopping me from buying this game right now.
1. I'm super cheap and therefore waiting for the game to go on some sort of turbo discount.
2. These days, I find it hard to find both the time and will to invest into a big RPG, even though somewhere deep down I know I want to.
