Wow so that may mean Syndicate get censored in Australia and by extension everywhere else. I hope not.

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.

Say it ain't so CD Projekt. You want to fight piracy but is questionable shakedown something you want to do?

Remedy can shove their console table scraps.

I guess that sack full of cash from Microsoft to make it an xbox 360 exclusive has expired and they can now port it to PC. I bet it will be a shitty PC port on top of this blatant attempt to generate additional revenue off an old average game.

Ask yourself, why am I playing Rage? There are other games far better that are far more deserving of my time. Let Rage go.

The game was hyped up, never released on pc, the hype was not justifed on on consoles (83 metacritic score), over a year later if it comes out on PC it will be good?
A cynical attempt to increase revenue. I hope they at least address the shortcomings of the console release, or maybe make the controls more PC friendly. But I doubt it.

Only a fool would not realize that Valve has been making Half Life 3 for a while.

When it comes out for consoles, I hope it doesn't have Skyrim's GUI.

When MMO's go from pay play to free to play aka pay to win, it's a bad sign. It's the slide to eventual oblivion.

These beta drivers have been coming fast and furious recently. If AMD and Nvidia did this for the whole year instead of just for the holiday buying season... all nvidia and amd consumers would be so happy.
