Interesting, looks like a Heroes of Might & Magic type game.

the game actually took in over $16,000.00 USD in donations in the month of April.

How fucking cool is THAT????
It's pretty unusual though. Usually it's around $30k a year. Donations spike when he releases a major new version as he did in April.

EA doesn't make any money, the third party server providers do. It's technically for the same reason as what IW did- not releasing server files to the public so there aren't any pirate servers that don't skip a CD-key check.

You haven't played Aquaria? It's fantastic, and was well worth its original price of $30. Underwater Metroid is the basic description.

Starcraft 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Team Fortress 2, the last dozen MMOs to come out, Halo, etc., etc. If you don't like it, cancel your preorder.

Paying money to beta test now? WHAT THE FUCK?
Are you fucking serious? It's a PREORDER that gets you into a beta engine test. Oh, what a ripoff, I mean it's not like this is standard operating procedure for multiplayer-only games for years now. OH WAIT IT IS. It's not as if you're buying your way into a Beta and only the Beta, you get the full game when it comes out too.

News Comments > Latin American StarCraft Pricing Details
23. Re: Latin American StarCraft Pricing Details May 8, 2010, 12:43 Zyrxil
 
If what Hejivar says is true and the 6-month price is 1/3 the normal price for games over there, then it's a fantastic deal for people who aren't going to dedicate themselves to Starcraft 2 multi. It's exactly why I'm pissed at people pissed at this deal- This is exactly the type of innovative thinking and giving people options that should be used to fight piracy.

Not a moron, just too damn lazy to click on the link and read the entire press release.
C'mon, 60 bucks for an incomplete game its a fucking ripoff! Do you realize that the game will have at least 3 releases only to get 3 SP campaings? It's 180 bucks in total!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (if not more, probably expansions and dlc will be released, like in WOW...) This game should've gotten the 3 full campaings on the first release, and an expansion later, like every old rts.
How is it an incomplete game when that 1 campaign (not including the mini-Protoss campaign also in the game) is as long as the 3 campaigns from the first game put together?

Did you demand a refund for the first Lord of the Rings movie because it didn't end with the Ring being destroyed? "Hey, what the hell is with 1/3 of the story being sold at full price? What a ripoff! Peter Jackson's a fucking scam artist!"

Read the fricking press release. Blue, you should've included the second paragraph as well.
Players who prefer to make a one-time payment for unlimited access to the StarCraft II single-player campaign and multiplayer play on Battle.net will have the option to purchase and download an unlimited-access version of the game directly from Blizzard Entertainment at pricing similar to the US price of $59.99USD.

You're morons.

1. "Oh no! They're giving Latin America options for the purchase for those who can't afford $59 or who just want to play the single player and finish in well under 6 months. What a ripoff!"

2. "Oh what, you purchase at the normal price that every other game sells for as well? What a ripoff!"

3. "And of course, I got to get mad about a lowered price option that's only applicable for 3 countries that've I've never even visited."

Civ is about the one game I'm wary of getting on steam because of the level of modding.
And what do you base this on? I own the Steam version of Civ IV and the expansions and the big mods, Fall From Heaven 2, etc., all work perfectly fine. The only complaint I have is that it's not well integrated into Steam enough, so the base game, and each expansion have their own folder instead of being all in one folder like the retail version would be.

I'll be alarmed if there's no support for custom maps, but who cares otherwise.


Anyway, this is quite a coup for Valve and doesn't affect my purchasing decision at all.

"Free" with 99% of mobos, and causes even more problems than Creative cards.

You know, I seem to recall when BioShock was released, it used a scheme almost exactly like this and people went loco. Interesting to see how Ubisoft's system has since lowered the bar of expectations.
You remember wrong. The difference was, 3 activations -total-, not unlimited use on a limited of PCs, with no way to revoke ever, and no promise of removing the DRM after a while with a patch.

Could the company have withheld it and been legally correct to do so? Absolutely.
No, not absolutely. We have no idea how these bonuses were promised. If it was in a contract with specific terms, if you met those terms it doesn't matter if you were still at the company when they gave them out a year or 5 years or 10 years later, you'd still be owed the bonus.

I would really like to know how they can consider SC2 AO. I mean really. Is the detail that of FPS games when it comes to gore?
The most popular theory is that it's political. South Korea's trying to get people to cut back on video game time, and Starcraft's a huge target. Making it AO makes it harder for kids to get it and then potentially ditch school for it.

Sounds like the "Kit Upgrade" will be offered through EA.com's site when it hits the PC, doubt those Dr. Pepper codes will work for the PC version.
Well you'd be wrong since they did Dr. Pepper codes for Mass Effect 2 and it unlocked the DLC for all platforms at once, including PC and PS3.
