It blows my mind how some Chinese websites can offer free shipping on items that costs less than $1!

I had a monitor I bought from South Korea sent to me here in the U.S., and the shipping label when I got it was $12 if I remember right. I was amazed at how little it cost to ship it, and it was only 3 days to arrive from the time I ordered it.
From Canada, though... it's nuts, customs delays everything way more than it should and I mostly quit buying things from up there because of the shipping costs -- unless it's sent by DHL, and they like to play football with anything they carry.
Yeah I don't understand. It's like the shipping companies make it difficult to ship across the boarder. Just fucking stupid.
I know you can rent a box at the boarder and get the item shipped there but with fuel prices these days you usually don't end up in any better shape than just pay the ridiculous shipment cost if the item isn't available from an oversees seller.

Wow...

No shit!
Some people takes their video games way too seriously, especially when it comes to CoD I guess.

I think its laughable that China's shipping costs (when compared to the US costs on ebay) are routinely a tenth of the cost of shipping from the US, sometimes they are even lower.
Same here in Canada.
Ordering anything from the States shipping costs at least double or triple (if they'll even bother to ship to Canada) than ordering anything from China.
It blows my mind how some Chinese websites can offer free shipping on items that costs less than $1!

What are these requirements for if I don't see any of this in games yet?
They are there to compensate for the lack of PC optimization, aka hide behind high pc specs to cover the lazy PC port.
It is so much easier for the devs to say yeah dude you need a quad Titan setup to run our Doom3 engine on your PC at a constant 60fps than actually invest time money and effort to optimize the game to run properly on a wide range of PC specs.

Apparently Payday 1 is free on Steam on Oct 16th for 24 hours.
Free to buy or play? http://store.steampowered.com/app/24240/ doesn't show it free for me.

Showing as 'Install' for me, and once I clicked through it now claims it's registered to my account. I think it's free to buy.
Yes it is ones you install it you own the game forevah!

They'll fund them by selling capital ships for like $25,000 each.
That or they sell tickets to the attendees, and have a few sponsors as well like Doritos and Mountain Dew or something.

I didn't check out the Strategy Informer review of F1-2014 above but I did read through the PCGamer one yesterday. Needless to say they weren't really blown away by this game.
I honestly do not know why Codemasters have released it. There is literally less content in this than last years version.

On the back of F1 2014’s box under ‘new features,’ there may as well be a picture of a man shrugging apologetically.

They should have released this on the next gen consoles. On the PC I think this is too much like the previous Borderlands games were to justify full price.

Wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a loss porting this junk to the PC.
Yep, than Crytek can say see there is no money in PC gaming, meanwhile Chris Roberts laughing his ass off all the way to the bank.

Was this on console first? Was it really that bad?
Yep, it was an xbone exclusive...

Well at least Yerli can't complain it didn't sell because of piracy then.
Oh I am pretty sure he was whining about PC piracy of RYSE before the PC port was even finished.

Flatline wrote on Oct 9, 2014, 11:38:
the "advanced dogfighting" tutorial schooled my ass. I suck. I figured out pretty quickly that lower velocity = tighter turn radius but I still seem to manuever like a drunken whale and have trouble even getting the enemy into my sights.
It will take a bit to learn and master the flight controls.
I have a button on my joystick mapped to turn off flight assist for example and I usually start the turn then shut off flight assist as my ship drifts in one direction and it is spinning around at the same time than flip back flight assist to regain control and go after the baddies.
I use that technique in this video

Just give it time, everyone has to go through that learning process, but trust me ones you get it, dogfighting will be by far the most entertaining part of this game.
You can literally re live dogfighting scenes from movies like Star Wars. Hiding behind asteroids to break visual contact, etc.
Tons of fun.

Surprisingly, the starting menu has no ads. Hop one page over, yeah, ads for games, movies n dlc.
I still do not find that as bad as the 360 was.
I didn't care much for customization on the 360, but at least it is nice of them to allow stuff like this.
Next up should be allowing voice and/or video messages to be sent to friends. You know stuff that was there for years for the 360.

You assholes.

You finally talked about E:D enough that I caved and picked up the beta.

It's downloading at home now.
You won't be disappointed. It really is an amazing game. I haven't been this excited for a game in the past 10 years at least.
I mean what other space sim game looks this awesome
