I'm in Portland, and it was on the list for future cities. Hope I can get it in my neighborhood.

I laugh at these people that are defending EA on why its taking so long. Its taking so long because they want it to....these people act like they know anything about develpement..its not the coding that takes forever its the gfx assets...they couldn't code this game properly if they tried, and they did. Again I laugh at these people that are defending EA, voted the worst company for many years.

I don't really see anybody defending them.

Outstanding. Hey, they were warned. They chose to ignore the fans. Now they have a pile of shit. Having a great license doesn't guarantee a great game, and it certainly doesn't make you great gamemakers, especially if the developers are bloody, wanking, buggering taffers. (How's that, harlock?)

Seems to HEAVILY favour the pros.

I disagree with the reviewer's pros, but the cons he listed render any pros moot for me.

Here's a question: if you can't play Minecraft without purchasing the game, what's the point of registering?
To play the demo?

Compare this to leveling an entire character to 90, I like the idea.

Isn't leveling a character supposed to be the fun/point of the game?

Wrong. It's clearly the one in the middle. Playing a console game on a PC doesn't make it a PC game, and it doesn't make you a "PC gamer".

I thought this was the 4th thief game? Why do they say it's the 3rd?

They're not. It's just the third trailer/clip they've released for T4.

@Task - Thanks for the links. Very helpful.

I'm not sure why I even bother with these arguments anymore. It's the same thing every time, whether it be DX:HR, SC: Blacklist, XCOM: EU or any other game that people shit on before release. Same illogical arguments based on unfounded assumptions and false correlations.

Yeah, I don't either, Spock. It's not like you don't say the same condescending shit over and over. Or do you just cut and paste?

Anyhoo, Jerykk in 40. Who won the pool?

Sounds to me like you're a prime example of why they're raising the fee.

As I said, I abuse the hell out of it. However, the reasons they give for the hikes are increased shipping and fuel costs.

What nin said.

I love Prime. I abuse the hell out of it, and I also don't use it for streaming. But the free shipping... Just ordered a couple things? Free shipping. Realized you needed something else two minutes later? Free shipping. Too lazy to run the store for Pop Tarts? Add $3.99 for next day delivery and you will have them tomorrow. It's often cheaper just to have Amazon send me something from clear across the country than for me to get in my car and go buy it locally.

I have no problem with Amazon raising the subscription fee. It's still more than worth it to me.

Those are some horrible graphics. I don't need cutting edge, but I'm not going back to C64 level graphics on a modern game either.
It's a unique visual style from an indie developer, and I think it looks awesome. C64 level? Pffft... I bet the "graphics" in Minecraft are horrible as well, huh?

Part of the problem, he believes, is the lingering aftershock of the console transition and a continued need to develop for previous generation systems.

"You can't embrace the new systems and make a fully next-gen game because you have to make it through these other machines [the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360] too," he says. "Once people get over this hump of cross-gen development, then we can really start seeing some truly innovative ideas.
This. I disagree, Beamer. I think he has a firm grasp on what is wrong with PC gaming today. As to whether he can turn that into great PC games remains to be seen, but I'm glad at least one new developer understands the negative effect of consoles on PC games and intends to fix it. "Goofy new ideas" are what infected PC gaming in the first place and made it what it is today. The truly amzing thing about this guy is that he works for Ubisoft.
