That free Windows 10 promise to pirated versions of Windows was questionable the begin with anyways.
With that said all pirated versions say "Genuine" anyways so I am pretty sure it will be easy enough to trick the authentication process to get 10 for free.
It's Microsoft's best interest to have everyone and their dog onto 10.

I thought that gameplay looked pretty bad ass. This game is definitely a buy for me. Looks like fun.

As an explorer in Null Sec,
Right, but not everyone plays the game the same way.
Running missions (can't remember the lvl 4~5?) didn't make nearly enough to pay for Plex in that amount of time. Not to mention re arming cost after missions, replacing destroyed drones etc.
It was a grind like theres no tomorrow. It got really fucking boring in about 2 weeks.

and now you can buy tokens in game to subscribe with, so essentially, you don't have to pay anything to play WoW.
You can do the same in EvE Online and it turns the game (which for some was a spread sheet simulator the begin with) quickly into grind to pay for your monthly sub.
It's a great idea on paper and it is a win win for the devs/publisher but imho it takes the fun out of playing the game.

Both of those equate to who's leading, at the given moment. When you're desperate, you're a lot more open to suggestions to getting back on top.

Which is a huge win for the consumer. Sony also just added DLNA support which should have been there since day one for both consoles. Not sure wtf they were thinking.

So... Playstation's reaction to BC is "Well, they went their way and we went ours. They have a feature we don't and that lets consumers choose."

Uh..

Not the best spin, dude.



"If you're backwards compatible, you're really backwards!"

I wonder if there were any "features" that Microsoft didn't do a 180 on since they've launched the One.
Regardless at least they do a 180 and give customers what they want vs Sony, who seem to be doing the #dealwithit this time around.

Ok. So what do you actually DO in this game?

Indeed. I'm tired of seeing the same 5 minutes retread. Show us some uninterrupted gameplay of what people will actually be doing.
I am thinking there isn't much to do other than fly around, pew pew here pew pew there and oh look a different looking planet! Yeey!

Also, they showed split screen coop. Man, I hope that comes to PC and not just the console versions. Me an' th' boy would have a blast with that.
Be sure to look into that before you assume, it has split screen.
I ended up getting Plants vs Zombies garden warfare on the xbox so I can play local coop with my kids because the PC version doesn't have that.

See, I can play the Empire side, and when I suck, I can claim roleplaying!

is call of duty even relevant to anyone anymore? serious question. I haven't seen much hype in the past few years.
I think they are still selling well on the consoles.

News Comments > The Division in March
26. Re: The Division in March Jun 16, 2015, 13:26 SpectralMeat
 
Yeah same with Origin keys, from GMG.
They were advertising BF4 promos left right and center before BF4 came out on Twitter and when I've clicked on the link it just took me to the main page.
Switched the region in my browser to EU and sure enough all kinds of deals were available but nothing to NA.
Sent them an e-mail and they said it is not up to them but the publisher and they can not offer the same deals to all the regions, so the EU publisher may decide to give a 30% discount on a game but it doesn't necessarily means you get the same discount on the NA version as well.
The Steam gifting restriction thing has been around for a while, but I didn't think it was fully implemented yet. My understanding was that some games were restricted while others weren't.

They also blocked cross region trading and gifting on all game listings for Anno 2205
I though that was a Steam thing. Didn't they start region locking games a while back?

Steam itself? Only for Russia...

But Anno 2205 actually seems to be fully region locked (for trading/gifting). You can still trade/gift inside your region, but not with other regions.

Actually I do wonder if that means a key bought from Mexico wouldn't actually work for me in Germany? SteamDB doesn't explain that flag.
I am pretty sure when I was buying keys from GMG or other places I have to get NA or International versions of the games.
From GMG specifically I can not buy EU keys because they would not work with Steam.
It's been like that for a while now.
Here is a recent article about that: click me

Thanks, they must have put it up today. I was checking Steam last night and it wasn't there.

Yeah, they actually put it up about 15 hours ago ;p

Also 60 ..

(Dunno what your definition of today is.. in GMT it was about 2AM so.. today ,p)
Checked last night around 7PM ET didn't see it.
As far as price yeah, its a bit steep. I'll wait for a lower price from GMG or something. Comes up as $70CDN which is too much for a PC game.
