I would say Data Caps are due to rampant over selling of cell tower capacity.

Eh? Paid upfront in full with no deadline clause or project specification? Even my kids iron out better contracts for pocket money.

I have a hard time calling any game I get hundreds of hours out of a bad deal. Hell, if I got hundreds of hours out of it that's already a better deal than 90% of the games I buy.

Indeed, sometimes I look at steam and think, wow ive only played that game for 60 hours? and ive thought it was fantastic. Then I look at how much time ive wasted in other games such as TF2 (842 hours), Natural Selection 2 (409 hours), Global Agenda (326 hours). Ironically these are some of the few games I bought (yes, even GA before free to play!) at launch (I don't do that very often).

Suffice to say, I wont be bothering with this (even after F2P tbh).

News Comments > GRID Autosport Boost Pack Released, Because "It Sells"
18. Re: GRID Autosport Boost Pack Released, Because Jul 17, 2014, 06:55 Armengar
 
Game Genie? The real oldies on here remember buying Multiface cartridges for our spectrums. Then buying your Sinclair for codes each month. Migrated to Amiga? the Action Replay cartridges became your friend too.

Codemasters used to have helplines back in the spectrum days too selling codes for these if you rang them up. Rip off merchants. They can fuck spiders if they think i'm falling for their "DLC" crap, I didn't even bother buying their shite in any sale due to the douche-baggery they have employed in the past.

Cheats and boosts are fine. Go for it.

As long as they in no way influence the progression or difficulty of the main game.

What about artificially coding the game with a look to releasing a "cheat DLC" later? There is a difference between grinding for something and being a downright wallet raider.

never mind windows 8, I remember installing server 2012 and being horrified trying to get the "start menu" up over RDP. No wonder it made so many people go to core.

The TV show didn't hold me to the end of S1. Someone mentioned continuum, this was good in S1, ok in S2 fading to poor then S3 has gotten better.

News Comments > Diablo III Patch Ditches Legendary Crafting Materials

Cant believe I missed this. Was playing NS2 and rising storm for the past week. This is *excellent* news. The trick with crafting is the better sets. Some sets needed SILLY amounts of grind (yes captain crimson im looking at you!) plus some are almost mandatory (aughild etc). Sometimes you couldnt get enough mats to reroll a bad set. This now changes. with a royal ring of grandeur you can build some neat characters.

like ebay really care. A few published articles on how they combat it and business as usual. after all, ebay gets a cut out of the final sale value so shill bidders help them...

News Comments > Free Natural Selection 2 Map

The main problem was the sheer stubbornness of the devs. No one will want combat so we arent adding it. What? Noon wants big servers so 8v8 it is. What? HA replaced with fairly useless exos.
The answer "mod it in if you want". So people mod to a frameless game thus have their mods broken on a weekly basis, the result is a pissed of playerbase who leave. A shame as it had potential ruined by shortsightedness.

I already have 1GBs wifi using ubiquiti kit. Works well for extending our network to smaller buildings (well huts) that otherwise wouldnt have gotten a proper cable run - such as the cricket pavilion and the storage sheds.

News Comments > Steam Guard Scam Warning
17. Re: Steam Guard Scam Warning Apr 18, 2014, 04:23 Armengar
 
You have clearly never worked with normal everyday people who have no idea how the majority of scams work. Even the national news is telling people that companies may be emailing you to tell you to change your password after the heartbleed bug.

I feel sorry for some people who just didnt understand how they got hacked (havi g spent many hours fixing pcs compromised by drive by java exploits - even though they had left autoupdate set etc).

I agree anyone techie enough to read here deserves all they get though.
