I never understood how you can run out of keys of a digital title with a non-physical, digital key? How is that possible?


=-Rigs-=

Maybe they create a list of say 10,000 keys which they have to add to their database as valid keys and that list then gets sent to Steam to hand out.

Not sure if it works that way, but maybe. Regardless you'd think these days that the process could just be automated so that if the supply gets low it automatically creates new keys, or just makes them on the fly as people buy the game.

I found it bizarre too and sometimes wondered if maybe they just put that message up when they wanted to stop selling something and possibly turn sales for it back on.

Oh lord, stay the hell away from Sprint. I'm on them and I CANNOT wait to get off. Horrid signal and service. T-Mobile may be my future but if I get a good deal for just around 10 bucks more a month, I'll even go to AT&T or Verizon. I'm so sick of shiiiiet signal and lack of 4G compared to all the other services.
Yesterday I'm at my mother's house and my phone BARELY has 3G signal. Talking 3G with like 2 bars of signal. Couldn't even get a web page loaded for the life of me. My sister's boyfriend is over with the exact same phone on T-Mobile and he had 6 bars of 4G LTE signal. I'm like...FAIL.


Pretty much this.

I used Sprint for 2 years, but changed to Verizon the same day my Sprint contract ended. The Sprint people were nice, but the signal was horrible. There were times my phone was just dead. Or it'd say 3G, but it'd be going slow as hell. Then my friend is sitting across from me with the same phone (iPhone 4s) but on AT&T and is doing just fine.

Dumped Sprint for Verizon and yea, I don't have Unlimited Everything anymore - but even the smallest Verizon plan is sufficient for me. I'm saving about $10 a month and I have a strong signal everywhere I've been so far.

Half-Life 3 confirmed. I knew it would be a blizz/valve collab-o MMORPG. 3 million Gordon Freemans. I've already reserved xxxxGORDONZOxxxx.

LOL, I thought the same thing. Overwatch is Half-Life so far as I care

35. Farewell my friend Apr 4, 2014, 01:20 mystery8
 
The Planet sites (which hadn't been updated in a few years now) no longer seem to be up at all. Now this. Won't be much longer before GameSpy is no longer existent on the web at all. The quiet end of an era.

I feel like an old man in a rocking chair on the porch remembering the days when I'd check Planet Quake, Planet Half-Life, etc. a few times a day and usually find something new each time. Maps, Mods of the week, Mailbag, Contests, etc. Waiting forever to download the latest Half-Life or Counter-Strike patch from FilePlanet.

Trawling through FilePlanet's vastness looking for something interesting that slipped my attention.

Good times those were. I wonder if it'd still be the same if they hadn't gotten bought out?

I am continuously grateful that Blue's News and DoomWorld are still around and going strong. I hope they always are.

[Update]
Oops. I see some of the websites are still up, at their .gamespy.com addresses. http://planetquake.gamespy.com/

News Comments > Valve Talks About Lack of Communication
12. Shell shocked Jan 11, 2014, 00:14 mystery8
 
It seems like they're so shell shocked (still) about Half-Life 2's shenanigans that they won't even announce anything until its ready to go.

The interview is full of non-information and does kinda come off as a bit indifferent. We've been waiting years and years and just silence.

Years and years go by as we wait for something of Episode 3 or a full Half-Life sequel. And what we get is Steam OS, Steam Box, more and more Steam stuff. Which is all good, sure.

But I'm starting to wonder if what my friend said last year is true.

Valve isn't a game developer anymore.

I sure hope that's not the case.

NOLF rocked. It'd be great if they could figure out who owns them so they can be listed on GOG.com. Or maybe even a sequel

There was a time when I'd visit Planet Half-Life, Quake, Wolfentein, Doom and Unreal several times a day and often find new stuff each time. But I stopped that years ago and the Gamespy "Network" kinda died to me when they killed all hosted websites.

All those ancient Quake sites lost to the ether. Sucks how it turned out.

Really glad Blue's News is around and not going anywhere.

News Comments > Half-Life Update Causing Mod Issues?
13. Re: Half-Life Update Causing Mod Issues? Feb 19, 2013, 03:44 mystery8
 
I keep an old installs of Half-Life 1.0.1.6 and 1.1.1.0 (Pre-Steam) for just this reason. It doesn't have the updates and fun stuff like 1920x1080 support, but it gets the job done and can run mods.

Hope they correct this.

John Carmack pioneered the way of the FPS via the PC, but it’s really too bad he/id Software became sellouts to the console market. They lost their way in the dust trail left by many other talented developers. Indies have become best thing for PC games now…


Seriously. Rage was the first id game I've ever not been excited for. I finally got it on the Steam sale and didn't finish it

It seems like if I want to enjoy an id game I'll have to play an old one. Sad since they used to be my favorite.

What I don't get is how Apple or Google can press charges?

It was lost or abandoned due to negligence by their employee.


Soo... if I leave my cell phone behind somewhere and someone finds it, I can press charges of theft against them? Assuming they don't turn it over. I kinda doubt it.

5. GameSpy Jun 9, 2012, 23:38 mystery8
 
I remember when I used to visit Planet Half-Life, Quake, Doom and Wolfenstein often multiple times daily and usually see new stuff posted every few hours on most of them. Many many old mods and resource sites were hosted on PlanetQuake.

Seems GameSpy has been dying bit by bit since IGN took over. A few of those planet sites I used to frequent haven't seen a new news post in over a year. I wonder why they're still even up.

It's not a raid unless you have more than 5 players.
