  • >Dishonored winning Best Story over The Walking Dead
    >The Walking Dead not even being nominated for Best Story

    wut

    • Duck

      No one from the kbmod crew, had played The Walking Dead..

      • Then they’re doing themselves an injustice.

        • Yeah, it was a shame that no one played it. It’s easily the most engaging game plot-wise that I played all year. Wasn’t too keen on people disregarding it for ‘not being a game’. Same thing happens with Dear Esther. I can see the argument for Dear Esther but TWD has choices, has shooting, has actual gameplay elements, you can die – it’s a game.

  • weedzerZ

    Can someone please explin to me why Tribes was the biggest letdown?

    • Dieze

      because trieb ded gg hirez,
      but seriously, it’s because the support from hirez’ side has drastically dropped since summer (no new maps, hardly any new features/bugfixes etc)
      I have to say it’s actually getting better atm (dev blog with actual interesting stuff).

  • DaySnj(desng7)

    dota 2 beats league

    bros=1
    casuals=0

  • shife

    Well KBMOD confirmed for having shit taste

    • Dan

      The games you like I don’t like therefore you are a bad person.

      • I don’t think he was saying the guy were bad people persay, just that he disagreed with their choices.

        He could have done it with perhaps a little more tact, but hey, it’s the internet.

  • iAmCyberwaste

    Not going to lie, seeing BlOps2 and BLR tie for best multiplayer says something for how high-quality a product Zombie put together.

    Thank you based Gerritzen.
