Guild Wars 2 has a dearth of simple, good-looking rifle skins.  That is all.

Haven't played it yet, but I'll take your word for it.

Also, Piranha Bytes have been basically making and releasing the same game over and over again since 1997. Most of their fans (myself somewhat included) are perfectly okay with this.

Hey, if Nintendo can get away with it, then so can these guys.

I quite recommend it.  Dearth of good rifles aside, it is the second most engrossing MMO I've played.  After Ultima Online, of course.

I've actually gained a newfound appreciation for GTA IV lately. Needy NPCs aside, the game really captures the late 2000's. That era when smartphones weren't quite there yet, people would pay actual money for ring tones (still a stupid thing to do even back then, don't get me wrong), "Web 2.0" was a relevant buzzword (technically two buzzwords) and everyone still did all of their internetting on computers.

Ah, how times have changed.

There's a petition calling for Fortnite to be banned in Australia. Why is a country that was founded as a penal colony such a damned nanny state?

Started by the developers of Realm Royale, no doubt.

My bet's on PUBG, in yet another striking case of "biting the hand that feeds."  Ey, Blue Hole Entertainment!  I suggest you ask the previous people that tried to sue Epic what happened to them when they did that while working on a game using the Unreal Engine.  Gonna have to hunt 'em down, though, because if memory serves, they dissolved after Epic revoked their license.

Team Ninja said Dead or Alive 6 will tone down the over sexualisation of the female characters...and then later they said they're not ruling out having the same types of costumes from DoA5.  SO they basically were just lying...like they did with 5.  When 5 was first announced they made it look a lot like they were going to tone down the sexualisation and..well look how that turned out in the end.  Fuck sake Team Ninja, the first DoA came out in 1996; the fans have grown up, why haven't you?

What are you upset about? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds to me like they're letting the player choose how sexualized they want the characters to be.

Insults, name-calling, violent disagreement and other such things are allowed in Flame and Burn, and only there. Don't post it elsewhere.

I am serious. And don't call me Shirley. You only said they're "not ruling out" having the kind of costumes from DOA5. To me, that implies they're giving the player more choice in the matter, not that they're going to go full fanservice. It seems like they're trying to satisfy the fanservice lovers and the people who want the games to be less sexualized, which is fine by me.

Or is there something I'm missing?
