    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    You're a fucking idiot, and you've obviously never read "In Cold Blood" which pretty much created the non fiction genre, and is widely considered the greatest American novel ever written. Liking Stephen King is one thing, but saying he's a better writer than Truman Capote is not something anyone...

    Ashes of Creation

    The problem is, in order to have a game like EVE, the developers/publishers pretty much have to make the game, then not intercede at all, and allow the players to do whatever the fuck they want. That is so rare in today's gaming world, I just don't see that happening. I predict it'll be more of...

    Ashes of Creation

    I don't know why PvP is always seen as something good in a MMO. It has never been implemented into any game that I can think of that it was actually fun. Maybe vanilla WoW, but even then the class imbalances were insane. It always sounds great that they'll let you create cities that can be...

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    Being popular doesn't necessarily make it good. If that were the case, then Harry Potter would be the greatest novels ever written, and Avatar would be one of the greatest movies ever made. King may be popular, but there's a reason why his works will never be part of the literary canon.

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    Even when King was good, he was terrible. His writing style is very amateurish. All of his characters are stock/stereotypical and as deep as a puddle. It was so bad, that King used to even bash on himself for how awful his writing was, calling his own work "the equivalent of a burger and fries."...

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    That movie sucked, but that ending was legendary. Also, the movie ending for "The Shining" was way better than Stephen King's ending in the book. Why blow up the hotel? Much scarier that it remains intact to ensnare someone else. I guess I shouldn't have used King as an example. As bad as Martin...

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    You guys are giving Martin way too much credit. This shit happens all the fucking time with writers. They have an idea for a story, start writing it, but have no idea how to finish it. Don't believe me? Read The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. The Gunslinger was written in what, 1982, and the...

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    I think the biggest mistake GRRM made was putting the White Walkers into the story in the first place. It just doesn't fit with the rest of the plot. It's the reason he never finished the books. He has zero fucking clue what to do about an army of the undead. We got D&D's version of what should...

    GoT - Is Over, Post Your Drogon Sightings

    The only way to make the finale good was to have Jon Snow on the throne. Otherwise, what was the fucking point of bringing him back from the dead? He didn't kill the Night King, he really didn't do jack shit after he was resurrected. Have Jon Snow kill the Night King. Have him take the army of...

    Outriders (Squeenix looter shooter)

    I'm currently at WT12. The game is okay, but the amount of shit they throw at you is sort of ridiculous. I don't mind a game being difficult, but when you're being shot from clear across the board, and the NPC's don't even miss, it's just retarded. It's like they have heat seeking bullets. I'm...

    Cyberpunk 2077

    While I loved the game more than most, I do agree that the city itself could feel more "alive" and immersive. You start to notice the same characters walking around the streets pretty quickly, which seems like lazy development. Also, I was expecting more of a faction system involving the...

    Outriders (Squeenix looter shooter)

    Played again tonight. I don't know what happened between last night and tonight, but my friend and I were able to play the entire night without one single crash. Last night, we could barely stay connected, and then tonight it was perfect. Whatever. Maybe because yesterday was Sunday and there...

    Outriders (Squeenix looter shooter)

    Just dowloaded the game today and started playing with a friend (I'm on a PC, he's on PS5). Holy fuck, their servers are SHIT!!! I crashed to desktop 3 times, and our party got disconnected at least 15 times tonight. I know there's a warning about cross play between consoles and PC's, but this...
