"Outage of Adobe Creative Cloud, more than a day old, locked out app users."

I can't take the red eye out of my family picture because I'm not connected to the cloud. lol

Looks like the Adobe cloud subscription model is working out for everyone.

One of the best games I've ever played. I'd buy it again for a pc version.

Who cares? It's probably the last generation of consoles anyway.

Prison Architect is criminally fun. Anyone who loved the old tycoon games should get this one. Despite the theme the game really is fun to play. Perhaps the best tycoon game since Rollercoaster Tycoon 2.

I don't buy games that have been in alpha for years. Do you work for them or something?

Everyone knew this sh!t was going to happen after the sale to Facebook. This is just one example of why the community was against the Facebook deal. First of all, too much exposure to a pile of money. Secondly, Facebook lost in a similar lawsuit in the past. Thirdly, it's obviously a politically driven project (what they didn't want). Personally, I think they shouldn't have sold out to the behemoth that is Facebook and just continued to try and fund it privately with private investors. They could have gotten enough interest given the technology and the people working on the project. But greed got to them, too, so I really can't give them any sympathy for what's happening, even if there are no damages.

Windows 8 sucks

You've just earned the "I'm cool" badge of the day.

How about this, clicking one checkbox makes win8 a better win7. But I know that's too confusing to the hipsters.

"iOS7 style changes coming to Mac OS X"

Cool, now all the hipster Windows 8 haters have something new to complain about. The general hipster uses Mac OS X for their desktop (because they've abandoned Windows), and Android phones because the iPhone is too "mainstream". So now what will they do? Switch to Chromebooks? Yup! lol

"Whatever happened to Blu-ray?"

Convenience over quality. What applies to music downloads also applies to movies. People care more about ease of use and convenience than the quality of picture and sound. Those two things are more like a bonus than a "must have". A "must have" is a Netflix streaming account, not a Blu-ray player.

Why is that a problem? Everyone is moving to digital distribution whether you like it or not. Get over it and welcome to 2010.

With 5 million people registered for beta, itís clear that a large number of fans are eager to jump online and experience everything the game has to offer play an MMO for free to see if it's any good.

Let us know how many people subscribe after their first month is over.

I'd say very few. It's obvious that World of Warcraft was a unique case. I like this game, but I don't see any reason why this one will buck the trend.

They said the same thing about FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and their servers are still jammed with players. I doubt any mmo will ever come close to what Blizzard achieved. Even Blizzard won't make that happen again. That was just a good game with the right timing. Like a lot of fluky success stories. The state of this genre now is that if you're looking for something completely new, you're not going to get it (yet), but if you love the genre (like you love FPS, RTS, etc), you'll most likely enjoy ESO.

This game should have co-op campaign. If it did, I'd buy it full price out of the gate. But since it's single-player only, gonna wait a long while when i can pick it up for $7.

Got invited to this and logged on to play a bit, and all I really had to say afterward was that the UI is godawful. Whether it was simple navigation on character creation menus, or trying to tell which chat bubble that was up on the screen was the one I was actually involved in, or figure out what a quest reward was from a 3 pixel icon it gives there's just nothing good about the UI. The entire thing needs to be scrapped completely and redone.

I think it plays ok, and it looks good, but interacting with the game is migraine inducing.

You'd think that there has been enough of these games to know what works and what doesn't. Why do they have to reinvent the wheel? Just borrow good designs from other games and be done with it.

The one thing that's missing from this whole "early access" paradigm is that there's no return of investment (ROI). I would happily pay for early access and contribute to the success of the game by giving feedback while playing, but only if there was something in return. I can think of at least 10 things. ; )

Pros: a lot of money to do what they want. Cons: big corporate politics will ruin anything that's good.

Seems more fun than ESO after watching gameplay vids of both. Subscription doesn't bother me for sandpark game like this. Looks like there will be lots to do and a nice focus on grouping (co-op).

I actually think I'm gonna hold off on this one for a while. After watching all the gameplay vids, it just doesn't seem like a $60 + sub game. To charge that kind of money, it better truly be next gen mind-blowing game, and it's not. It unfortunately seems like a "too late to the game" game.

I hate to say this, but Wildstar looks more fun. :-hides-:
