I would like to read the original quotes not the paraphrasing of quotes because I know how easy it is to read into something that was not actually said. I just want to address that possibilty.

News Comments > Diablo III Launch Events

The most interesting thing to me will be if pirates are going to be able to get around the online DRM. I doubt they will. It would be an interesting challenge and I suspect that the only way to do it would be emulate Blizzard.net. Also because of this online DRM requirement, Blizzard has painted a big bullseye sign. There will be people who will be trying to launch denial of service attacks of some kind on Blizzard.net so that legitimate customers will not be able to play to make a point about this kind of DRM. And I'm saying now, that if people are prevented from playing because of the online requirement, there will be hell to pay and there will be a ton of vitriol thrown against Blizzard.

I guess I don't know if Blizzard.net has been attacked in the past with any success.

For those that you that may be "in the know," has Blizzard addressed concerns that are found here:

Crytek has a history of misleading claims. Let the evidence speak for itself.

I don't understand why these ranges of hardware requirements are being posted rather than the recommended specs.

Reading how Valve does things make me finally understand why "Valve Time" exists. I'm not knocking them though for it.

What I don't understand is why its a surprise? Why is it "finally understand?" Its exactly the stuff they've been saying for years.

I quote them from interviews, and people deny that it can be possible or insist that I must be taking it out of context, yet its right there in the employee handbook.

I've said for a while now that this organizational structure explains a lot of stuff about valve, especially puzzling stuff.
It's a surprise to me because I don't read any Valve interviews really. So I'm ignorant about what they say their work culture is like.

Well I love CD Projekt and Witcher series. But I also appreciate well thought out simple patching and downloading things you don't want/need is ridiculous and should be streamlined.

Aside from that I'm still feeling the love of CD Projekt and I'm basking in it.

If valve does this right they can make a console like PC hardware and compete with Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony. I want more competition because it's better for me and you!

Word of warning! The launcher for this thing installs a windows service that cannot be disabled if you want to play.
Services like the one you are complaining about are the way that Google Chrome, the latest Adobe Flash (soon Adobe Reader) use to silently update themselves without requiring the user to provide administrator credentials. Hi-Rez is doing what others have already done. Also that service handles some kind of authentication as well. You can probably find some more information about it on hi-rez forums.

I'm loving it. I started late in the beta. I don't have any experience with "pay to win" games, but if they are all like Tribes Ascend, then "pay to win" is a grossly inaccurate characterization. I paid $9.99.

The Orcs feel "honored" that you copied their Giblet Grinder.

EA will change the designs no doubt. My dislike for EA is making me biased against them. Hard for me to be objective when speaking about EA.

So will it be out on steam?

Also any info as to what "...finely-tuned to cater to the PC gaming audience..." means exactly? Will have the ugly big scroll forever user interface of the original? Will we have higher resolution textures and anti aliasing?

Seriously? Bulletstorm is not even a proper PC game. It's designed for consoles, a new franchise, and piracy was the problem? Right give us some numbers or you are just speculating on piracy. Who pirated this piece of shit game, seriously?

Wow that video. What does this guy base his analysis on? It seems to me he is basing his analysis off his personal anecdotes and bias. And some of what he says can be shown to be factually wrong.

If I didn't know any better I would think this guy was some kind pundit who is trying to generate controversy for click/ratings.

I think Mass Effect 3's endings tarnish the reputation of Bioware. I think Bioware used to have an automatic "buy" for a lot of gamers based on their reputation alone. Valve and Blizzard who would delay games so that they can be sure that they are polished while Bioware can no longer do that now that EA has them in their clutches.

Point of fact. GOG is the number 1 place for DRM-free games because I'm pretty sure that it's the only palce fore DRM-free games. If you run a race and there is no one else who is competing against you, you are always the winner.
