Need to go back to this game to do the DLC. What are the must-have mods nowadays? I don't want to change the game too much so I'm considering just grabbing those texture packs etc linked in the article.

That's the core here; the attackers are to blame. It's easy to get mad at Microsoft and EA because we--as members of the gaming community--can point to them as a "known enemy." The issue is we don't know who the attackers are, so we point place the blame on them.
EA/MS have a duty of care to protect accounts.

Guess I should have be clearer that I meant I was still getting it, just not now.

But then, Shok! Cheers for that link! Got me SR3 plus season pass for 15 via THQ, 2nd post on that link. Deal isn't available in the US but we usually pay more so this pretty much cancels out.

Plus I guess it works out well playing SR3 before Skyrim, bit more time for patching and mods.

Prometheus looks awesome, but 8th June and they're taunting me with that now?

Nearly jumped all over the Saints Row 3 sale today but it's still barely cheaper than I can buy it online. Doesn't seem worth it considering how long it'd be until I get around to it, especially since I'm burning out on GTA-ish games, almost done on Red Dead Redemption.

Anyone confirm that a physical disk SR3 is still Steam? Same for Skyrim, since that's nearly half-price if bought at an e-tailer.

Under law in most developed countries corporations are legaly - people. They have the same rights as any other human.
Laws do generally distinguish between "natural" and "artificial" persons, albeit generally not in ways relevant to the context of your point.

Wow, Dead Island at 50% off was a good bargin, but 83% off? No excuse not to get it at that price.
It's 33% off... so, more expensive than yesterday. The earlier price was a mistake.
Never been so happy to find out something is more expensive than I'd thought.

(bought it on the 50% sale)

Their servers must be getting pounded. I'm getting errors and blank screens in the Steam app. Refreshing will sometimes fix it. Sometimes I just get another mostly blank screen.
yeah it's fallen over and it's what, lunchtime in the US?

Dead Island at 50% on Steam is worth getting for anyone who hasn't. Quite an enjoyable game.
came to post that Q, nicely timed

UK here.

First link goes to a "Four, oh: four. Page Not Found" (but after a promo screen, not sure if that might screw something up)
http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/4023884/Patch_43_Hotfixes-12_12_2011

Second link goes to patch 4.3 hotfixes news article
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/4023884/Patch_43_Hotfixes-12_12_2011

Firefox (with noscript, but the same thing happens if I whitelist the domain).

Anyone know how big a cut the networks take when you donate that way?

Most bank transfers etc (here in UK...) take a pretty small percent and is reasonable value.

I'd probably buy this if it comes out a good game.

So... I probably won't be buying it then, but I'm open to the possibility that they'll do a good job. However unlikely general experience points to that being.

Hmm, I already whitelist Bluesnews and a few other sites. My old host file still chops out quite a bit, that approach still seems faster and safer but more to the point most of the entries I no longer remember what they're for, so I wouldn't want to remove them.

I'd expect to be leaving this enabled, though they've got hard work ahead because it's only going to require a couple of bad eggs to sneak through before it gets disabled and forgotten about.

Is there a reason why you tube embeds don't work anymore at all with firefox and noscript? I can't get it to load at all, just a black screen with the play button showing in the middle.
Worked fine for me. Have you whitelisted ytimg?

Why not just give an official statement now...?
I'd guess there's a lot of meetings going on with directors, maybe shareholders and creditors etc, many countries' laws can be quite specific in the procedure including when announcements can be made. And there might be various options still on the table.

Razumen, the dashboard updates are a deliberate strategy. It's basically the same as what's going on with smartphones, Steam and/or, say, TF2. It's turning a product-thing into a service-thing.
