Having been abandoned by society, I was raised to adulthood by wild computers. Most of the stupid things I did were during the internet&#039;s early days, back when Overclocked was an emulation comic instead of a remix site, so there&#039;s no way you&#039;d find out about them now.<br /> <br /> (I hope.)

    I'm still waiting to see the series address the late game problem of how catching pokemon becomes pointless as it gives way to trading and breeding. Trading gives you more control over what species you get and breeding gives you much more powerful pokemon than wild ones, so the only reason to head into tall grass becomes extermination. Maybe Wild, Bred, and Traded pokemon should be arranged into a weakness triangle like the one Fire Emblem uses for weapons?

    If the Wii is any indication, Sony will release the Travel and Microsoft will release the Pohkit as accessories for their stay-at-home consoles. Both simply won't be able to measure up to the Switch. Sony will release a forever underutilized technical marvel of a device, while Microsoft will take the concept of portable console gaming too far and create a handheld that fits in your pocket by collapsing into a singularity.

    I keep forgetting that EA Origin even exists.

    I almost want to dare Microsoft to lead the streaming games revolution. I'm sure it'll go great after how popular their Xbox One reveal was.

    Really? Do they not realize that the lack of curation is already choking out fresh, green developers and provoking an exodus from Steam? This is tantamount to surrender in Valve's competition against Good Old Games, the Nintendo Switch's online store, and similar services.

    Good grief, he was only 33 years old? He didn't even make it to his birthday this year?

    People like him make me realize how little I've accomplished. It is a sobering thought, for example, that when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was my age, he'd been dead for a year.

    I deliberately avoid games like these because when you censor them, you lose the entire point of playing. There's never enough game left over to stand on its own.

    But the whiplash from this change makes me glad I've been migrating to GOG. Steam has become like Facebook; it's not a service you use because you love it, but a service you exploit and take advantage of until you find something better to fulfill your needs. Now I'm just waiting for the ultimate sign of Steam jumping the shark; these developers and their games fleeing to the Nintendo Switch.

    @nimzy What do you mean "once again"? The Update Aquatic has been in development for Java for months now and will probably be released in a few weeks. Not only that, but the Bedrock edition has been trailing behind Java ever since it was officially released, to the point that you can't even pause the game in single player mode.

    Bedrock has a LOT of ground to cover before it catches up to Java. Sure, it runs smoother, but when you learn of all the shortcuts that were taken to get that kind of performance, it looks like it barely even tries to take advantage of being coded in C++.

    Not interested. It isn't just Randy Pitchford; Borderlands has a couple fatal flaws in its mechanics that persist throughout each game. First of all, the game gets worse with each New Game Plus playthrough. No effort is made at game balance; it just amps things up thoughtlessly so even tank characters die in one hit.

    Secondly, the loot system emphasizes practically infinite gun and gear combinations, but the inventory system doesn't support that at all. Imagine if Pokemon only allowed you to possess a dozen of its 800+ creatures at any given time and you'd have an idea of what it's like to play Borderlands. Supposedly inventory space is supposed to be reserved for your best gear, but the game is designed so there's no such thing as "best" gear, only many different kinds of unique and varied gear instead.
