I'm hoping someone has the common sense to distinguish between such situations, just not optimistic considering how legislators rarely have any such common sense.

Bought Homefront: The Revolution on a whim. Not a bad game and while the weapon customization isn't bad, I would have preferred more usable weapons. And I don't really feel first person view works well in open world games.

Look for some videos closer to release to see why it got such a negative press, it was buggy as hell when it first came out.

Everyone on /k/ started quoting this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRRwbhN4-sU When Benicio Del Toro started Bumpfiring the 92FS.

That being said,

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THAT SHOT OF THE UH60s CHASING DOWN THE TWO VEHICLES HOLY SHIT


If there's a scene that's ANYWHERE near as good as the border crossing scene from the first movie, I'mma lose my shit. And the fact that Jeffrey Donovan's character has returned is downright awesome.

Downloaded and played a free trial of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Didn't care for it. Was gonna download AA: Proving Grounds, but found out the game only has training missions and a shoot house that can be played solo which means not worth my time.

Why would one even do that, though?

Apparently it got screwed over because rather than trying to, you know, finish making the game, some senior figures on the team thought it was a much better idea to pull an eleventh-hour rewrite so they could tell us all their Very Important Opinions About Trump.
