Damn you all! Between the coverage here and the recent video reviews I couldn't help myself. I got caught up in the hype.

I feel badly about this weakness of mine... yet I caved and bought the game on Origins. Something I had sworn never to do. After they wiped my BF3 account. Even though the agent made it up to me in a big way a month or two later. He gave me three games if I remember correctly. On Origin of course.

I'm preloading and hoping that is 9pm east coast time?

Eh, it's news. I find it pretty interesting that the guy went back after his little bitch temper tantrum.

He's still fucked though, as I'm fairly certain Valve isn't even going to bother to reply to anything from their shitty company ever again, so good luck selling your indie games without Steam, fellas!

He made a stupid tweek no doubt. No excuse for it. I'd wager that Dev have far better avenues of interaction with Steam than Joe Public does. I remember being locked out of my account and thinking it had been hacked for two weeks or more a few years back. I sent several support tickets/e-mails in but never heard from them until a week after I managed to get back into the account on my own. Not sure if they fixed it or if it was a fluke. I never got over how poor their support was... or lack of support... which is the case with so many companies today. Origin took even longer to respond and make amends after their support tech wiped my Battlefield 3 account shortly after launch.

Everything on the PS3 is slow and clunky, I don't even turn it on anymore. Between the PC and PS4 I can't stand going back to the long load times, UI clunkiness and etc.

Yeah it's gotten really irritating the last year or so. I don't know what they messed up in their updates along the line, but it's noticeably slower than it used to be.

Tempted to get a new console, and I have to say that despite the fact that it's an underpowered piece of shit, the Xbone has more games that look appealing. Plus it's currently 350 bucks and comes with a copy of AC:Unity, so the console is basically $290... Undecided

Check out the current Best Buy XBONE deal. They are offering up to $150 for your purchase of the XBONE if you trade in a 360 or PS3. Almost thinking about getting one for myself.

I must be crazy. I'm looking forward to this. I have yet to finish half a dozen games which I've been juggling over the past few months yet I'm planning on picking this one up on day one.

Has anyone else not had any luck with Dragon Age Keep? I logged in and it has my info from the first two games but I wanted to alter the Tapestry. Tried several times to change and lock in choices only to have error after error occur. Am I just cursed?

It's worked fine for me... From what I've read on the forum, either try a different browser, or log out, clear out your cache, then log back in. Any particular kind of error you're getting?

These are the errors I am getting.

Line: 7
Error: Script error for: app/template/account-check/personas.html
http://requirejs.org/docs/errors.html#scripterror


It wants to open an HTML debugger but I don't know much about site scripting so I just close it and try to log in again. It will usually take after a try or two, log me in, then I get this error while trying to view the Tapestry.

"Oops, an error occurred Sorry, something went wrong. Please try viewing the Interactive Story Summary later."

Seriously though, if this was intentionally done with the intent of stealing the election, you wouldn't leave a feedback mechanism to let the voter know the vote had been switched. Everything would look fine to the voter, and we wouldn't be getting these kinds of stories, on either side. You'd just have the person elected, and there'd be a big difference between the exit polling and the result.


You know what popped into my head while reading that? The Obama Administration stealing the election while using the IRS to harass and delay opposing non-profits/Republican based organizations from receiving their status authorization until after his election. Funniest thing about that was the fact that Nixon was impeached for doing a fraction of what they did. Funnier still nobody cares. It's old news forget about it, move on. Like Bengasi, Libya. Obama should have been impeached but was allowed to run again. Then Obama flipped on his story outing himself and his administration during the national debate yet American stood by and did what? Yeah, that is right, nothing.

I laugh at the divide. While people fight over political parties they fail to see that their is just one party, the ruling party. What I call American Royalty. I know we all want to have faith in the system... in humanity but it doesn't matter who is in power they are all corrupt. Why else would anyone spend millions of their own money to land a job that pays $450,000 a year? Makes no sense. Unless they are making a hundred times more money in bribes, insider trading, and fleecing the tax payers. Being above the law sure has its benefits.

Can't speak for him or others.... but I was hoping they would add a lot more to the combat options. There was no stealth what so ever.No cover system. I don't remember any crouch or prone, nothing of that nature. Run/Use Weapon 1/Use Weapon 2 was all I remember from the short time I played the combat beta. It has been months and I have purposely avoided it so I truly hope that somebody calls me on this. A turn based combat game really needs to nail that combat or it just gets boring fast.

I would like to see a livestream from some dudes webcams who haven't cleaned their apartment or changed their clothes in the last ten years. A ten year WoW anniversary wouldn't be complete without a look into the abyss. Please make it so, kthx.

That reminded me of that ad for Quake... I think it was not sure which one... with the gaming chair that was a toilet infront of a PC desk set-up with a mini-frig. I could almost picture somebody that addicted to WoW. Still hard to believe it has been ten years. Have they ever released the actually profit the game has made from day one? I'm sure it would be mind boggling.

Thanks again for the advice. Sorry, I didn't respond promptly. I've been digging out tree roots in the front yard for three days straight so that I can lay new sod. Hope to be done in the next two days.

Anyway, I do run a full scan everyday if not every other... depending on my use of the PC. I only visit Blue's and YouTube unless I jump to a developers site or want to buy something online. My browser is set to delete all cookies when closed and the moment I see an ad taking over I usually check the recently installed programs list. The reason I suspect its coming from Blue's ads is because the ads are taking over the page usually pushing the first article down to page two or three forcing you to scroll down to see the article. I know its possible there may be something the virus/malware scan is not catching but since installing adblockplus the site has been fine.

Either way, thanks again. Time will tell... if I have any other craziness in the next few days I'll let you know. Usually happens before the site fully loads which is another reason I think it's Blue's ads. I only ever get them when I open the browser with my homepage being Blue's. Do love the site more without the ads since they were getting out of hand on occasion.

Is anyone that is not running ad blockers having a ton of pop-ups with malware installs, redirects to infected sites, and even Trojans from Blue's ads?

For two weeks or so it has really gotten out of hand. To the point were I hesitate to open the site some days. I know a lot of people use ad blockers but I don't because Blue generates revenue from theses ads and by us clicking on them to get to Amazon and other retailers. Unfortunately it has gotten to that point today where I find myself looking for a blocker. Any suggestions? Free or not... as long as its good.

More America? It's been done to death. There are so many countries to choose from for historically based single and multiplayer components. This smacks a little of laziness and cash-grabbing.

No doubt. I was hoping during CoH1 they would add Japan vs Chinese. And maybe Italians vs the French and/or Egyptians?

Seriously this pre-order bonus stuff is getting out of hand.

No doubt. I am trying to figure out why they are charging $40 for this? Seems a bit much to me. Not that I would buy it even at $20. I'll get it on sale for $5 or so. After they burned me on the original release of the digital deluxe or whatever it was called. An extra $40 for some textures and a few more commanders. Really pissed me off.

Yeah, seems like a lot of stupid decisions being made all around. I'll admit I have zero faith in our government. Haven't had much faith in them for several decades. Yet, this last couple months has been nothing short of mind boggling. Not that it wasn't crazy before. It's like amateur hour almost everyday. From the guy walking into the White House through a door left unlocked to people on national TV outright saying Hillary Clinton will be our next president. Just insane.

Seriously, I'd really like to know just how these nurses (in Spain and now the US) were fully decked out, suited up, yet still managed to contract it? The odds of them all being grossly negligent in their jobs to the point of risking their lives and the lives of their loved ones is something I just can't imagine.

Crazier yet portions of the population within numerous African countries believe the US is at fault and trying to depopulate and take control of Africa for their resources. Mainly diamonds and oil.

What really floored me? The second nurse supposedly called the CDC advising them she was feeling ill and had a fever yet was about to get on a plane... they did not advised her it was not ok to do so? She was running a fever after treating Thomas Duncan, after another co-work has tested positive for ebola, she is supposedly being monitored yet not under quarantine, and she gets on a plane to go plan a wedding in another part of the country? WTF?

Is this some bad movie writing or some stupid book's plot full of holes?

Off topic but since I can't seem to find the link to e-mail Blue directly I thought I'd ask if anyone else is having spam pop ups, auto playing ads, and self installing programs from Blue's this evening?

I noticed right off the bat the ads have hijacked the site because they pushed the articles all over the place to make room for themselves. Then I checked my programs and found one was just installed from the site. It's labeled Weebsaavver.

Has anyone notified Blue?
