Tip seen at RPS- The free roam portion of the demo is limited to 10 mins, but you can freeze the timer with a little hex editing.

Open up the game's executable with a hex editor (eg. a free one like HxD), go to line 000F5380, and overwrite D9 56 4C, with 90 90 90.

Plus, these numbers are obscenely optimistic in what it counts as gaming hardware. Super-budget models only theoretically capable of gaming (and netbooks of all things) don't count!

Ah, but as the article points out, the dirty Brits passed on Starcraft 1, which never even broke top-40 in the UK, so it's not that amazing.

The industry is no longer the lovely place it was a decade ago and I don't think the gaming industry, by its very nature, fits well with a corporation mentality, too many passions, egos and volatility.

The what? Do you have some kind of evidence that a decade ago the games industry wasn't a place where the typical non-studio founder programmer worked 80 hour weeks for $40k a year?

To put it in perspective, the pre-orders alone mean Starcraft 2 has outsold every PC or console exclusive title of the last 5 years, with the exception of Wii Sports/Sports Resort/Wii Play/Wii Fit and Nintendogs.

Good point. MW2 wasn't an exclusive title. So SC2 pre-orders outsold Halo3? I have a feeling Sc2 is a 'long haul sales' type game that will sell well for much longer than the typical AAA game.
Ah, forgot about Halo 3, that's another exception, it had about 3 million in its first 2 weeks, so we'll see have to see what the Korean numbers say.

I guess that's good news for an RTS genre? My CE arrives tomorrow...can't wait to jump in.
Now I'm not trying to start a war here because I don't even own any of the latest consoles, but didn't Modern Warfare 2 have like 20 million preorders or something? Maybe I read something way out of line?

How about letting your customers choose what is acceptable, ATI? Exe-name dependent AA, what a joke.

It's not rocket science. They know people will buy Starcraft 2 so why not chop it up and sell it for more money? People seem to be lining up for it so kudos to blizz/acti, they were right. Remains to be seen how the game pans out and if all those extra dollars pay for more game in the end. Blizzard is going to say what you need to hear to spend the money so....

And you're -still- following form instead of the substance. It would be chopping 1 game into 3 if each had the twelve single player missions each race had in the original.

When you start breaking up a good game idea and trying to charge full game prices for each piece things stop adding up correctly.
You still don't get the point, which is that you have 0 credibility in calling it one game split into 3 pieces. The single player is as long as the original, you can play all the races in multiplayer, what the hell is your justification for calling it a ripoff just because you don't get to hear the whole story? It's exactly like Lord of the Rings - a super long story split into chunks that each have as much content as one normal book/movie.

That's only the singleplayer, you can play all three races in multiplayer. I'm not a huge fan of this approach either but it is what it is.

Are people really fine with paying $60 for the next two games as well? That's a joke I hope...? Surely you would not be expecting $60 for each instead of $40 at max? I guess we have to wait and see what they deliver in each but is anyone ready to spend $60 on the next part of this game?

Of all the complaints, this is the most ridiculous. You're getting a full game with as much or more content as the first game. You might as well complain that Half Life 1 and 2 cheated you because they didn't finish Gordon's story at the end of each, or that the Lord of the Rings movies were a ripoff in trilogy form because they didn't give you the entire 10 hour story at once.

Damnit, Gogamer canceled my Collector's edition preorder. Oh well, digital normal edition it is.

I don't know why people think that image hints to a new Hitman game, it looked way more like an image for a new Hitman movie in terms of style.

You're really overestimating the WoW numbers because Asian subscribers don't pay nearly the price that North American/European subscribers do. Rather, they use a timecard scheme (the details of which I'm not too clear about) because the majority of players play from net cafes.

After watching the trailers I wish they had made a game that looked like that. Starcraft FPS would be awesome if they could get it looking like those trailers. Ooooh, you could make it an rpg like mass effect.
I'm killing you with my mind right now.

Uh...what the fuck are you even talking about, LittleMe? Do you even know what the platform for Net Neutrality is?

It's about turning ISPs into dumb pipes, so all traffic is treated the same.

It's about removing the ability of jackass executives to suddenly decide "Well, Google is super popular. Sure they already pay for all of their bandwidth, but let's say that they're not paying for the users that visit them, so we should get 1 cent per search done on them."

It's about making it so a cable company ISP can't charge for access to competing stream video sites while selling their own internet video service (already done in Australia).

Seriously, get a clue, instead of being stuck in some ridiculous McCarthy era mindset.

Honestly, this is a perfect example of a game that is made to be a 'couch co-op' game, that you screw around with when a friend comes over. Why even bother with a pc version?

...Because there are people that want it? Online coop works too.

I have to say though, I'm not really that interested in this, despite the admittedly really nice art. The gameplay just seems so stale, really only at a Streets of Rage 1 level. Plus, it's really disconcerting to watch the character have to stab and/or shoot every single guy a dozen times to kill them. At least with bare fists, there's really no suspension of disbelief in your mind objecting to the on-screen action.
