I'm sorry you're devoid of the understanding of sarcasm.

Or maybe, just maybe, it's your fault for posting something stupid and then acting like a bratty little child when called on it. Grow up.

You're both pretty, there's no need to fight.

So glad to see Anno 2070 in that list. It's a fantastic and mostly overlooked game.

Also, glad Starbound is there. It's a great game already, and it's not nearly complete yet.

Anno is a great game, but that's Ubisoft's fault for loading it up with ODRM. Had it not had that it would have been HUGE!

I'm not sure how many people actually pay attention to that. They certainly lost my money because of it, because I did check whether it still had it, but when I mentioned it here most people said that they thought it had been removed. I doubt lay people are even aware of what sort of DRM it had in the first place.

It's been removed to the extent that while you still get a better experience if you're online, you can at least play while offline. It also means that when their server is having fits (which happens with distressing frequency because Ubisoft refuses to put 5 dollars into their hardware), you don't get kicked out of the game you bought.

You're still limited to 3 activations through securom, which includes installing a new hard drive, motherboard, ram, or cpu, and you still have to go through Uplay, which has been down 50% of the time I've ever gone to play an Ubisoft game.

It's just the standard cycle of fads. Everything new has a honeymoon period where its the greatest thing ever, then it's used and used until they're finally sick, bored or disenchanted with it -- people then proclaim a myriad of excuses as to why it's no longer the greatest thing ever for a need to explain off their initial unbridled enthusiasm when in fact human nature has already provided the reason.

Yo Axis. When you going to post a jpg for your avatar?

I have had pretty much no interest in this game since the first trailers, but all of this complaining is making me want to play it. There's something wrong with me.

Came to argue about BI, but stayed to agree about a great year in gaming. Spoiled for riches. Some of the coolest and gripping games ever.

Couldn't agree more. And with some extremely high-profile Kickstarters due on 2014, next year is looking to be pretty great already.

Diablo3 was so dissapointing, it should be included on the 2013 list as well...

Diablo 3 was released in 2012...

Left 4 Dead 2

381 hrs on record

Infected killed
128,385

Rochelle 39%

Been there, done that! Spot_left

It looks as if a few achievements have been added since my playing days. Nothing worth the trouble of installing the game again although there is an incredible amount of replay value in L4D2.

Free? A slap in the face to all those who purchased the game years ago.

If you had known that it one day would be free, would you have never purchased it?

Guide Step 1: Convince game makers to release linux ports.

Still waiting on that one.

Making progress, with Steam for Linux and a good number of Linux-supporting kickstarters.

You know, I'm REALLY looking forward to this. MOBAs are a completely underrepresented genre, and we really need more of them. We haven't had any for a long time. It's got a combination of strategy and action unmatched by any other game type. And its players are some of the most helpful and understanding of any genre. I'll be checking for updates on this several times a day.

Hahaha, awesome.

JayDeath wrote on Dec 16, 2013, 17:59:
Am I the only one who has a problem with this early access bullshit? It seems many devs are jumping on to this way of development and I don't like it! I refuse to pay for an unfinished game, even at a discount. I don't get it.
I put well over 600 hours into the mod and I was so excited for the SA but this is bullshit. In this case, it isn't the price either. I want a complete game!
I'm very disappointed about this.

...then don't pay for it, and wait for the finished game?

The finished game is going to come at the same time regardless of whether they do early access or not. In DayZ's case, this may very well be never, but having early access available isn't going to change anything.

Let's just get Eternity out the door first, shall we? I am not a happy camper as it is when they're talking about adding more stretch goals this late in the development cycle. I think I'm done with KS at this point.

This late in development..? They probably haven't even hit alpha yet and the game probably isn't coming out for another year. Boggles the mind that people can complain when developers offer to make a game better. It's not like they are charging you extra. You reap all the benefits of increased funding without needing to spend another dime.

I think it's meant to be $60. I remember seeing a few kickstarters that were saying get the game for xxx when it's going to be xxx at launch. This is in part kickstarter to make the backers not feel upset. (which is bullshit because you backed it knowing a sale on the game will happen) This people bitching about pricing is horrible... $60 is the normal cost for a game these days, just get over it. We're lucky the price of games hasn't followed inflation and gone up to over $100. Also this is in part the way consumers have been breed now, as they expect and won't buy things unless they're on "sale". This causes retail costs to be inflated to adjust for the sales. Look at amazon and you can see this in about 10 items(esp tv's).

The Wasteland 2 devs are quoted as saying that the price at release will be probably be less than $60. PA was supposed to be $40 at release, I believe.

Humans forget to easily.
Family and friends have been affected, I won't forget.
I remember taking moments of silence on certain days in school - I doubt they do that anymore.
Do they even do the Pledge of Allegiance anymore?

All states except five (Hawaii, Iowa, Oklahoma, Vermont and Wyoming) give time for the pledge to be recited as part of the school day.[43]

In September 2013, a case was brought before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court arguing that the pledge violates the Equal Rights Amendment of the Constitution of Massachusetts. [44]

States I will never move to. Unreal.

The Pledge always made my skin crawl as a kid. That felt like something some totalitarian dystopia would do to brainwash its kids.
