Neverwinter nights is in open beta. It has player created content, which is really cool til you pick up a quest created by some guy in German and you have no idea what the objectives are because you don't speak German...

EA Star Wars Game Won’t Work on Nintendo Wii U as New Frostbite Engine Not Supported | US Daily Voice

The WiiU is a pile of crap, but this is a blatant lie from EA. Instead of shitting all over WiiU's tech, they should have gone the classy route: "it takes money and effort to port something and nobody gives a fuck about WiiU, so yeah." Now developers are actually going to believe the system's CPU is far weaker than a 360, when they're basically equal, and the WiiU's GPU is vastly superior.

Nintendo did a horrible job marketing WiiU. I didn't even know it was a different console until months afterward. I bet if you ask random people on the street, most will have no idea what it is. Big step backward after monopolizing the casual gamer market so well with the Wii

Not all of us walk up and down the street talking to random strangers.

This isn't one of those passive aggressive comments, I'm really being serious: Why don't you guys start a Bioshock thread? Would save you needing to talk in spoilers.

As for the Wii U, I still remember vividly the day I saw its unveiling on E3. I think it took me like 3/4 of the presentation to realize it was a whole new system. Should go find my posts from when we were all watching that.

For example:

@11:53, assuming the Wii U was an attachment:

Quote:
What the hell is wrong with these people? They took the Wii and made it a giant DS?

Eh, color me intrigued.
@12:14 when I realized the truth:
Quote:
Wait...wait...wait...THIS is the new console? I thought this was just a last thing for the Wii.

How the fuck is this anything new? It's not a new system is it? It's just a controller you purchase...or did I miss something?
And here comes Mofo to crush my spirit @ 12:18:
Quote:
It's a new system, they just didn't show a single thing being developed for it (that wasn't being developed for 360 and PS3), so all the talk about how it's hardware "blows away both 360 and PS3" is still entirely unproven. What a terrible way to show new hardware, Kinect and Move's tech demos looked far more impressive than this. If it was still too early to show anything, why not just talk about it for 5 minutes and move on?
And from there, I came to some peace. Still haven't picked up a Wii U though. I might this summer...Unless I really do get a PS4 day of.

I've got another Steam offer, it's a 75% off voucher for Total War: Shogun 2. They keep giving me stuff that I already have. That makes it around 6 quid on Steam and just under $10 for you US folk. Let me know if your interested, it's only valid til the 27th of this month though.

If you have a 360 and still haven't played Alan Wake, there are supposed to be some huge sales starting tomorrow (up to 83% off) on all Alan Wake titles (original game, DLC, and American Nightmare). Everyone's assuming this means they're announcing Alan Wake 2 tomorrow for the new system at the Microsoft event.

Xbox Live's Major Nelson Coming soon to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace :

The console design certainly won't determine if it succeeds or fails, but the Xbox One appears to have the beauty and aesthetic of a VCR player. They couldn't even round the edges a little bit?

Considering it's supposed to replace your cable box, DVR, Blu-Ray Player, etc., it's probably exactly what they were going for.

How crappy did "next gen" Call of Duty look?

Toronto's new fancy pants aquarium is opening soon and I just came across this photo of it in the process of being built.



Which plasmids would you recommend I enable for my first visit?
