Watch Dogs 2 And The Steam Users Who Hate Black People Speaking of the above, Jim Sterling takes a look at how not having a white protagonist has effected the games forums (developers really need to hire moderators and community managers).

Other content I found interesting this week Working on Fable destroyed my life, but I don't regret it It’s OK to Be Mad at Games Journalism, But Don’t Be a Moron About It I had to look at the Forbes article, the one this article links to, around the time it was first posted. I had to look at it because every article written in that style is always going to lie, misinterpret, ignore the human element of live coverage, etc and I always want to see how long it would take the author to do one of those things. He couldn't even make it through the first sentence without lying or saying something that would obviously be shown as wrong if he had looked into it, not that the kind of people creating conent like that care about factual reporting, pandering to outrage culture is easier, which is an odd way of thinking for people complaining about the competence of the press.

  19. The first Watchdogs was a huge disappointment for what many thought it was going to look, and play like, but one of the worst things about it was how poorly it performed on PC, and how little attention the PC version got. Now that refunds are a thing on Steam, and PC gamers are more skeptical about the sequel of this game, do you think Ubisoft will actually try to do a good port for the PC version of this game?
  20. Finally! After a long time waiting Persona 5 has a release date! WOOOHOO! Source: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/06/07/persona-5-will-take-your-heart-on-valentines-day-2017/ Because this one of ATLUS' biggest titles in recent history PlayStation got some exclusive additions for the game called Persona 5 "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition. The Persona 5 "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition arrives in a massive collectible box and contains: Soundtrack CD 4" Morgana Plush 64-page hardcover art book SteelBook School bag The Persona 5 "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition will be available for $89.99 USD. Those interested in just having the game, they can get the Persona 5 Launch Edition for $59.99 USD and it comes in the SteelBook case (The same SteelBook from the "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition.)

And it'll only cost $49.99 USD but however only come in a regular came case.
  21. It's not uncommon for companies outside of the big 4 to have their own smaller conferences but Bethesda are starting E3 off with a bang this year with the title that made the gaming community go into hyperactive mode last week. Fallout 4, however besides that we know very little of what else they will show or if they even have that much to show. Known . Fallout 4 - Gameplay Demo . Doom Reboot Rumored . Dishonored 2 teaser (ok Bethesda just messed up and this is now a SR) Feel free to discuss this conference below
  22. Sony will be trying to boost their lead in the console race and also trying to make for the awful "Powers" talk which bored everyone to tears last year. Now we know a lot of what Sony is showing but this is Sony we are talking about so anything could happen. Known . Uncharted 4 Gameplay Demo . Nation Drake: Collection (Uncharted Remastered) . New Ratchet and Clank . Guerrilla Games (Makers of Killzone) - Horizon RPG . Until Dawn . Volume . No Man's Sky . Indies .Final Fantasy XV .Project Morpheus Rumoured . Dark Souls 3 (could appear at Microsoft's though) . The Last Guardian (come on we had to chuck this in, its tradition) . Star Wars Battlefront ( Sony have a marketing deal on this game) . WILD (Michel Ancel's new game, Unveiled at Gamescon)
  23. I am not surprised that Corporate is snaking his way into some of your favorite franchises..
  24. Weren't we (those who posted in the last topic on this) supposed to make some sort of effort not to get hyped up? Now I see a good number here riding the E3 hype train and forgetting that..
  25. Sci-fi horror game from the makers of Amnesia and Penumbra. I never played the Penumbra series but I enjoyed Amnesia, probably a good game to keep an eye on for horror fans.
