Good. Interplay, take your 2 million bucks, buy a shitload of hookers and blow, then go away and die. Bye!

I would love to know what portion of that 2 million will go to attorney fees.

I don't think Best Buy knows what Blizzard doesn't. Or maybe Blizzard isn't saying. But retailer ships dates have been wrong so often that there is no reason to believe that this ship date is correct.

Here is a tip, don't ship a broken game that way you don't risk shitty reviews. Which version should reviewers review? The shipping version or after some patches? I say you review the game at the time you started reviewing it.

What if GOG is only using Geo-IP and not the address of the credit card?

Also another way of doing it is to make friends with people from other regions of the world, develop trust, and buy each other games and pay each other back.

The only time I agreed with EA is today. They still suck though.

I got wars when it was dirt cheap during some steam sale. It's like they know that MWLL was released and they lowered the price. I'm sure the game will be on sale on steam soon.

Clearly you didn't buy those weapons, you only rented them until EA saw fit to no longer let you rent them. This is what happens when a developer/publisher has total control over game content.

Firefox versioning is the same as google's chrome. Google's chrome automatically updates itself in the background with none the wiser.

Large Address Aware, is that necessary for a 64 bit Windows system? I mean do you need to have that on even on a 64 bit Windows system?

This contest is so convoluted and it just hides the fact that your odds of winning are so low.

Uhh it's the same format as the Summer Sale. BooHoo you have a limited chance to win, nevermind that you get free stuff just for participating. Don't like it, don't participate, nobody is forcing you. Some whiners will never be happy even if handed free stuff on a silver platter.


I was trying to speak "matter of factly" and then you jumped all over me. I'm sorry. However I still stand behind what I said. The odds of winning are very low and all convoluted complexity hides that fact very well. I wish that like in lotteries, steam showed you your overall odds of winning.

Happy Xmas to you though.

Glad you are happy standing by your complaining about free stuff just for the sake of being negative. This isn't a lottery, they don't have to provide you with odds of winning, nor does it even matter in any way. 25+ million Steam accounts, between 2 and 5 million online at any given time. Do the math, there is your odds of winning. As someone said, your odds of winning are zero if you don't want to participate, nor will you get the free stuff.



Actually it is a lottery. And I don't know what the law is regarding having to be provided with odds and since they don't I'm going to assume that they don't have to. And it does matter to most rationale people when they play a game of chance what their odds are of winning. And being rationale, I want to know what the odds are.

Everyone should be free to criticize whatever they like. But nobody is entitled to their own facts.

How can you be 100% sure if all you have is an IP address or the ISP account to which that IP address was linked to? And they consider that 100% certainty? No such thing as absolute certainty when it comes to identifying people on the internet. This is not opinion, it's an absolute fact. And shakedown notices are unacceptable.
