Both worthless, also No nose vs. no UMD drive.
^Without Krillin, Goku would have never beat Frieza.

|Dragon Age Origins Ultimate has the best story of this gen (43) | Posted on Jan. 29, 2012, 5:27 p.m.|
|Dragon Age: Origins is pretty great. It was pretty much a modern Baldur's Gate.|
^While I like DAO this is just insulting. Baldur's Gate is infinitely better than DAO.
|Killzone 1 PSN release won't have online, didn't launch yesterday (15) | Posted on Jan. 25, 2012, 11:11 a.m.|
|But Killzone 1 is an abomination. It's just as bad as the worst FPSs of this generation, Legendary and Turning Point: Fall of Liberty.|
^This, so this. I own this game still and it was a complete waste of time if not for the atmosphere.
|Diablo Clone - Realms of Ancient War (1) | Posted on Jan. 25, 2012, 8:56 a.m.|
|I wonder why this clone didn't come out when the drought of the overworld view games were in short supply. It almost makes no sense to release this game with Diablo 3 right around the corner. |
R.A.W. Realms of Ancient War, the explosive HacknSlash for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and PC developed by Wizarbox, today immerses us in its heroic-fantasy universe through a minute of video sequences!
This video presents the rich universe of R.A.W., in which you will take control of a powerful warrior, a dark sorcerer or a stealthy rogue, before throwing yourself in a big, action-rich quest!
The first few sequences of the video, more contemplative, let us appreciate the diversity and richness of the games levels and environments. These sequences quickly turn into pure action, while the 3 heroes of the game face swarms of creatures and huge bosses. All the power they have been granted, their powerful spells and devastating abilities will certainly not be too much for them to complete their grand quest!
R.A.W. Realms of Ancient War will release on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and on PC early 2012.

|That is one of the worst RPG's in history and the fact that anyone would find that PS1 game any good really shows how desperate JRPG players are this generation.|
|For the haters: SWTOR patch (6) | Posted on Jan. 24, 2012, 4:15 p.m.|
|I have been saying this was one good thing about SWTOR, the patches and expansions are coming quickly. It would be great if they could keep this up year after year.|

|This is definitely a series I wish would come back, personally if Bioware had taken a risk and made SWTOR like JK than it would have been revolutionary. |
|Darksiders 2: Behind the Mask (new footage) (2) | Posted on Jan. 18, 2012, 4:40 p.m.|

|What if I really do consider FF7 to be the worst FF game I've played? (21) | Posted on Jan. 18, 2012, 4:23 p.m.|
|No, but it is hard to say FF7 is the worst with so many bad FF spinoffs out there and especially FF8 as a worst example.|

|This SOPA Bill is serious business. (1) | Posted on Jan. 18, 2012, 7:50 a.m.|
|I personally had thought this was already shot down, but it seems today all the sites that have an issue with SOPA are blasting it like a 2012 movie. N4G and Craigslist are even getting into this, I wonder how far is this bill going to go and will the very young gamers that don't even care about DRM take notice of this monumental change in Internet policy.|

KOTOR - though one is an MMO
|So can we all agree that Dark Souls>Skyrim? (22) | Posted on Jan. 14, 2012, 9:40 a.m.|
|Yes, as the hype dies for Skyrim the truth becomes more evident.|
|SWTOR game expanding update coming Jan 17th! (1) | Posted on Jan. 13, 2012, 5:28 p.m.|
|While many might not like the fact that this game replaced KOTOR 3, including myself a little bit, I must say if Bioware keeps updates coming all the way through until the next full expansion, this will be one of the best MMO's ever.|
Past Rise of the Rakghouls
After going through all of the enhancements in Rise of the Rakghouls we talked a little about future updates, including the content patch following 1.1. Currently scheduled for a March release date, 1.2 (as we're guessing it will be called) will add new Flashpoints, Operations, WarZones, and new game systems. It also may see the beginnings of the Legacy system updates, something that may help the end-game dramatically. While Amatangelo couldn't actually confirm a date for Legacy upgrades he did say that BioWare would be adding them in the "near future." Other wants, like UI customization, are also in the pipeline, as are some changes for Warzones that make us excited (awarding medals for scoring points in Huttball? Yes please!).
Bug fixes, changes, and patch notes
But, as we said in our review, there's work to be done in The Old Republic besides throwing new content on top of the pile. There are balance issues, content problems, and bugs that need to be fixed. To see how large of a chunk patch 1.1 took out of the game's problems click over to the next page for the full patch notes, taken right from the Public Test Server. They might change by the time they go live, but it should at least give you a good idea of what updates are coming your way...

|You'd think people would learn not to jump to conclusions after Xenoblade.|
^The only reason why Xenoblade came to the U.S. is because Gamestop funding part of the bill...so again **** NOA, because that is not going to happen twice. If it does happen twice it will be another third party that will have to fork some of the bill for a game that should have came over here in the first place.

|Budget Gaming PC just in time for Diablo II (1) | Posted on Jan. 7, 2012, 12:35 p.m.|
|Just in case you are wondering what to buy with your Tax return, here is a budget PC that might be right up your alley. |
The first build of the year is here! After posting our hardware release timeline for 2012, and with all the big conventions kicking off in the next few months, now's the perfect time to start working on a system. Our newest addition to the "budget gaming build" family of cheap PC builds on our site is, as we always say, extremely powerful for the budget. We worked on this one a bit to include some excellent combos that mitigate the price of the artificially-inflated HDD prices.
While it's certainly no $430 budget build, which was an unbelievable price, this ~$558 variant comes packed with some serious hardware. No more screwing around with X3 CPUs -- and though we did try to cram an i5 in here, we ended up going with the good old Phenom II X4 series. That said, we're working on a ~$700 build that will have an i5 in it. That'll be posted tomorrow, we'll update this page with the link when it's live.
It's about that time, eh chaps?
