Like others said, most likely just for dramatic effect. It does raise many questions, though, like, is death the only way to fail... can you take a team with you, can you be invaded by non-players, thus can you play offline(and what would be the point of defenses then), and what happens when 2 or more ppl invade the… » 8/21/14 11:59am 8/21/14 11:59am

Yeah, things like Kickstarter and consoles being nearly PCs (not to mention Steam and GoG kicking serious azz) has really revitalized the PC market. Every major publisher is trying to please the PC crowd now, it's so weird after being ignored by them! Hell, they're even bringing Sierra back (a major PC-centric graphic… » 8/19/14 3:42pm 8/19/14 3:42pm

Thinking about it, I now wish every PC game was always-online just so ppl would have to BUY the damn games. I'm thinking that a switch to just streaming games over the internet rather than let ppl have access to any files is another way. Seeing "Among the Sleep" being pirated (or any indie game) makes me so damn sick.… » 8/19/14 3:18pm 8/19/14 3:18pm

As long as the police have all the power, whatever justification is used is *always* true. Police are never in the wrong, and always need to aim for headshots when their training with hand to hand would do.

You police apologists are all the same. No amount of criminal activity on the part of the police can ever be… » 8/13/14 9:05pm 8/13/14 9:05pm

ACTUALLY, anyone who was an anti-authority type back then (like I was) was saying the same things because it's been obvious for decades. It's just as more and more people wake up that it looks like a new revelation. Protip: The USA created/or had a hand in training and outfitting almost every terrorist organization on… » 8/08/14 6:46pm 8/08/14 6:46pm

Without Kickstarter many great RPGs would not exist/be near completion so excuse me if I call bullshit on all of this. A majority of many peoples pledges worked out. It's just that ppl love yapping about the failures more than the success stories. » 8/01/14 8:32pm 8/01/14 8:32pm

I can only assume (along with the previous "missing" female character) that Hollywood is, yet again, afraid of strong women. Why else put her brother in her place.... hell, between the two characters, if you have to axe a character, axe THE BROTHER. God damn HBO. » 7/27/14 5:02am 7/27/14 5:02am

Why would the video game market decline 12% with new gamers being born every day?!

And I don't get Doublefine doing publishing... is this the same dev that couldn't release Broken Age and had to break it into two parts because they were so disorganized??? » 7/27/14 4:54am 7/27/14 4:54am
