    Osu is a pretty popular rythm game right now, although it's free, so it isn't a AAA title I guess.

    You get 2750 credits for every Warzone game, you need to play barely 2 games for every silver req packs. You never, ever have to actually buy a Req pack to win.

    Why do you keep thinking the "robot" telemarketers are robots hahahaha, they are humans using a soundboard:

    http://newsfeed.time.com/2013/12/17/robot-telemark...

    "Samantha West is not a robot but a computer program used by telemarketers outside of the United States to allow English speakers with thick non-American accents to sort through leads to find real prospective buyers before passing them off to agents back in the United States."

    "When Samantha West calls, there is a person on the other end of the line, he said, who is an active participant in the conversation. That the person was limited to communicating through a machine with pre-recorded utterances did not change the fact, he said, that there was another human participating in the conversation."

      Yeah, but I feel this is how an Android storyline is commonly constructed. It's so common because it's the biggest story plot of any android and a common story among people in general. Having rights. These are the steps/story arcs of people/race or what have you in general. First is creation/evolution. I.e becoming self-aware. And then the story becomes about having rights because they have become self-aware. I think its just how the story of an android and general self-aware AI things are. I agree its overdone, but its the most important thing to start off with.

    When will someone tell David Cage he can't make video games?

    Rather than the "gasp" I think what the game developers are trying to achieve anything BUT the "ohhhhhh...........", which is a dread for anyone who presents anything.

    The reason behind Unity trying to cram as many people onto the screen as was physically possible is that you needed them there because of the period when it was set. Paris in 1789 - 1794 was a hot bed of revolution, and there were protests, rallies, and people just congregating everywhere....mind you, they could've toned it down a bit when you weren't in missions and just had those massive crowds for things like Louis' execution and stuff, but it was needed for the setting of the game, not just to go "Look what we can do"

    London 1868 is a lot different, while there is still alot of people in the city, they don't need to be as dense as Unity did.

    Have to say though, it's a massive return to form for the series. They've ditched a lot of the superfluous stuff that was in Unity and made a bigger story that seems to be having a bit more impact....and is a bit longer than the previous ones. Plus you dont have to wait for half the game to become an Assassin like III and Black Flag, which annoyed me to no end.

    It feels like a return to the Ezio Trilogy in terms of the story, and I like that alot. They just need to get a handle on what they want to do with the modern day stuff. Either work it out, or just get rid of it; because at the moment its not serving any purpose at all. Also they need to make a few games with Evie and Jacob because they're the best since Ezio as well.

    Gus... Gus, how did you miss the opportunity for a Ghost In The Shell segue for CrunchyRoll? It was right there.

      Maybe because it was scripted.

      The read is scripted, yeah, but he could've not said "Hang on, I need to read this" or some variation thereof to get to the read.

    Concerning Detroit: The actress was in The Following. Valorie Curry. It was one of those instances where the actress determined the final look of the character. They used her all the way back to the PS3 tech demo.(http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2038170/?ref_=tt_cl_t6)

    Only thing I disagree with them over is when Ryan said legacy of the void isn't a big title. Its not a huge title but its still a pretty big name that still commands respect. Its multiplayer component is still widely respected and while its e sports scene has diminished it is still going strong. Its not going to out sell fallout by any means but its still big name series in of itself.

    If you're going to use the word 'twat' please pronounce it correctly. Twot sounds super stupid.

      Why so many dislikes? I mean, you're a little too salty about it but as a British person, I agree! xD

    Haha you guys obviously haven't actually read or watched anything on No Man's Sky. Basically every question you asked yourselves has been answered

    Elite: Dangerous also puts your name beside the planet if you're the first one to discover it. They didn't reset the PC data when Xbox One joined and you don't have to go that far away in order to find something that nobody else has seen on Xbox or PC.

    I feel like none of them knew anything about No Man's Sky lol. Also NMS is a PS4/PC exclusive and not a timed exclusive.

    To Ryan's point about androids, there are plenty of examples of games and other media after androids get accepted into society without prejudice. Off the top of my head I can think of Data from Star Trek TNG and Cayde-6 from Destiny. Its just that in those worlds the androids aren't the focus of the story because they are just another form of sentient life, whereas they are the main focus in the "should androids be people" genre because that's the key thing about that genre.

    I've greatly enjoyed the Halo 5 singleplayer. I can see why some would call it "mediocre" but that wasn't my impression at all. I loved it!

      The story was a whole lot better than 4 imo.

    I usually agree with Ashleys point (about 38 minutes in) about paying full price for a game, plus DLC and then having to spend more on the game down the line. But in particular for Halo 5, I don't mind due to the fact all DLC maps are free, the game provides a quality product and paying for the REC packs don't actually give you an advantage. By playing the game and investing time you can get the same "advantages". But it has become a bit ridiculous for most titles.

    From the interviews with the No Man's Sky creator that I've been seeing, while it's shared universe, it isn't a game where you can play with your friends and party up with them. You can run into other players, but it will be random encounters You start towards the edge of the Galaxy and the system count is in the quadrillions (so everyone on the planet has a few million stars to call their own) but the end game is towards the center of the universe which is likely where you're going to start running into more people and seeing other people's discoveries and such.


    EDIT: As for integrated robots, a couple of debatable examples are Star Wars and the Aliens Universe.
