    SimCity modder tells us offline *regional* play can be easily done

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 17 March 2013

    We all know the story-- Maxis refuses to give us offline SimCity not because it's DRM but because being always online is essential to their vision. I like many others am annoyed with always games, but it's something I can get past. What I cannot get past is being flat out lied to and treated like a moron by people who expect us just to take it. just as I had suspected, the servers are doing...

    So SimCity does not require always on connection for gameplay?

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 14 March 2013

    So during this whole SimCity launch [i]event[/i], Maxis and EA have both maintained that SimCity requires a connection at all times to function and to give us offline play it would require a significant undertaking. The game is so entrenched in the cloud that bringing it offline is pretty much off the table.  Except apparently that's not true.  A trusted source came forward and...

    Tomb Raider QTE's-- what am I doing wrong?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 March 2013

    I'm general I hate QTE's but the ones in the Tomb Raider, I must just be doing something wrong. For the life if me I can't do them without just memorizing what they are by dying over and over.  The little circles start closing in, the Y button appears (playing on 360), I press Y, the Y prompt is still on the screen, and then I fail. What. The. Fuck.  The only way I've been able to get...

    Is there a way to customize what shows up in WaraWara Plaza?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 20 November 2012

    So MiiVerse and Mii Plaza are pretty cool but I'm also pretty annoyed that I can't see the games or apps I want to see in there.  I no longer have Netflix so I don't care to see that.  I have Assassin's Creed III and Batman for other systems so I don't care to see those.  The one game I currently have, Might Switch Force Hyper Drive, never shows up but I would love to see...

    Am I a jerk? I got a WiiU Deluxe on accident...

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 19 November 2012

    So I originally preordered the white WiiU from GameStop since I didn't care a lot about the color or extra storage. Then Nintendo announced the perks for the Deluxe and I was kicking myself.  Fast forward to today when I'm picking up my WiiU. I give the guy my original receipt that said I preordered the 8gb white version. He goes in the back and comes out with my WiiU. He goes the usual...

    Why am I already seeing Bioshock Infinite commercials on TV?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 30 October 2012

    Generally when I see a game I really like, I go over to Amazon, pre-order it, and then forget about when it actually comes out so I get a nice little surprise on a random Tuesday.  A few nights ago I see a Bioshock Infinite commercial on TV or Hulu (forget which) and think, [i]sweet!  This game must be coming out soon if they're starting a marketing push.[/i] This morning I decide to...

    I'm so excited for this game.  I'm not good at many fighting games but I was pretty awesome at Tekken Tag on the PS2.  The moment they announced Kunimitsu I immediately preorded it and I can't wait for tomorrow.

    Still canít play Diablo 3 (or why I hate PC gaming)

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 12 June 2012

    So I still can’t really play Diablo 3.I can play during lunch at work…but that’s really only in small chunks and I always have to be wary of when checkpoints are and how much time I have left (so I really get to play in 30 minutes chunks).  At home, I just can’t install the game even though I have a PC that exceeds the recommended requirements.  Every time I...

    My Mass Effect 2 character won't import into Mass Effect 3 :-(

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 20 March 2012

    I know I can't get my facial features since I'm using a character imported from Mass Effect and that isn't a big deal to me but for some reason Mass Effect 3 isn't recognizing that I have a Mass Effect 2 character ready for import! I have a save game that finished the game, my Shepard survived, I have the Mass Effect 2 importer file, and none of those have ever touched my cloud save.  I...

    PC gaming tools for left-handed gamers

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 10 January 2012

    If you're left handed you know that PC gaming can suck.  Not really because PC gaming sucks (it doesn't), but because every game and most game devices out there are made for right handed people.  Anytime you get a new PC game, you have to spend 30 minutes rebinding keys usually in an inferior way to the general WSAD setup.  With MMO's it's even worse because it's hard to get quick...

    What skyrim mods/cheats do you use and why?

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 26 November 2011

    Just curious, what skyrom mods or cheats that actually affect gameplay do you use and why? One of the earlier ones I downloaded was one to get rid of ecumbrance effects and later just enabled the cheat to get rid of encumbrance all together.  It's never fun to deal with inventory management and encumbrance and this game isn't any different.  It's just a downright miserable experience...

    Dead Island, great game but hated the final hours

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 October 2011

    First off, spoilers in this thread.  If you care about that sort of thing, ye be warned. Alright, so it's rare I finish a game and even more rare that I put more than 30 hours into a game but I did both of those things with Dead Island.  The atmosphere was great, the zombies were fun, and they just did a plain phenominal job.  I can't say enough great things about the game. ...
