Comcast just doesn't want you dumping their cable TV for less-expensive internet streaming (although Comcast wasn't specifically mentioned in the article).

That said, I've been with Comcast for 12+ (?) years, and every time they've been able to raise my bandwidth, they have done so without raising my rate. Just 2-3 weeks ago, I was happy at 30Mbps. And then, one day, I was getting 60Mbps, and I usually get the full 7.5ish MBps when d/ling or streaming. When I first joined Comcast, I was lucky to get anywhere near the 5Mbps I was paying for. Comcast may be evil to the rest of the civilized world, but they've been the bee's knees for me.

Maybe we can get a Telltale story driven BluesNews game?


And it would be called Bitch, Moan, and Complain.

I'd play that....
I would too. I wouldn't be interested in "Fanboys Only".

It's perfectly within Steams right to pull the game. So glad we have Gabe to shield us from all that's evil and wrong..

That said, Gabe and his minions, along with his 3rd party DRM, which forces the customer to log into another(Oh hai Uplay!)3rd party DRM after purchasing games on Gabes 3rd party DRM, can all go fall into a hole filled with gasoline. But hey! Atleast they offer refunds on broken software they sell to millions..wait, nevermind.

If you don't use Steam, how is he shielding YOU? If he has no control on how and where DC sells their game (outside of Steam), how is he shielding anybody? I've a couple issues I've felt the desire to rant about on occasion, but I don't get the Steam anger. Don't like it? Don't use it, and it doesn't affect you. John Schnatter is a right-wing nutter, so I don't order from Papa John's (it's not that good, anyway), but he has no effect on my efforts to acquire pizza elsewhere, nor on my enjoyment of said pizza.

Get over it. Shit was tired years ago.

Thanks, I'll wait then.

The game is phenomenal in so many ways with loads and loads and loads and loads of content already. Why wait on supporting Bioware? You could wait until the game is fully patched and they officially announce they will no longer add content and the game is for sale for 6 dollars, but while that's perfectly legit, I consider it just as bad as pirating.

Can't help it that this attitude rubs me the wrong way: Many times when developers announce that they will continue to support their product by patching and adding content, there's always someone popping up saying shit like "Thanks, I'll wait then."

"Whoops, we don't want that! You know what? Forget what we said. We'll stop supporting our product right away and added content will definitely NOT be free! :D"

If I wait for the price of a video card to come down, or for a stable driver release, is that stealing? Ridiculous comment only a fanboy could squeeze out. Spend your $60 as you see fit. Make sure you all post to forums about the problems you run across so the developers can fix it before I plop down a single cent on it. In the old days you would be beta testers. People use to get paid to beta test. Now you pay them.

Added content that is not free used to be called an "expansion pack", and I was more than willing to pay for it if I liked the game. Day 1 DLC is another console gaming custom that has infected PC gaming because of fanboys who think being treated like an open wallet is okey-dokey with them. If waiting for a game to be stable and complete, and not allowing oneself to be treated as said open wallet, rubs you the wrong way, then maybe you just don't understand the basic customer/merchant relationship and the reasons why things cost what they cost. I'm not here for the game developer. It is here for me (well... my money), and they'll only get my money when I feel what they are selling is worth what they are asking. Buying a game before that point is fanboyism and you're just rewarding a developer for shoddy work. Why the fuck would I want to encourage them to continue that practice by giving them my money? Doing it to "support Bioware" is just idiotic.

It's just that there wasn't much attention paid to the controls and UI of the PC, but the rest of the PC version is pretty damn awesome. I checked out the bone version on a buddy's bone, and it looked pretty mediocre compared to my "Everything set to MAXXXXXXXXX" PC options.

Nice graphics are nice, but they aren't a selling point for me. I think gameplay is much more important, and the reason to buy a game in the first place. PC controls and PC UI are two of the best reasons to buy and play on PC (among others), and that the game was shipped with shit PC controls and unpolished PC UI, while they waxed about how awesome the PC version would be, shows they seem to think PC gaming is all about the graphics. It isn't. And the PC players (and console players) who espouse the graphic options in every fucking console port as evidence of a developer's love for or attempt to appease the PC gaming community (such as it is), or as evidence of a game's PC-ness, just don't have a clue about what makes a PC game a PC game.

Some of those awards sound like they were created for a specific game. "Trending gamer" is TotalBiscuit? What the fuck does that even mean, and why award it to some clueless, console-cuffing YouTuber?

Also, enjoy not having heal spells.

I heard that there will be a waist-high crate about every ten feet to crouch behind.

Looking forward to it. Lets just hope BioWare doesn't pull a Mass Effect 3 on it.

It can't be worse than DA2.

"Battlecry testing". Hmmm... interesting. "Bethesda". Interested. "A video showing off gameplay". Very interested. "Free-to-play". Fuck off, Bethesda.
