Here's what I learned from your recent treatment of PC Gamers: That your games are no longer worth more than 5 bucks.

Well duh. What else are they going to say. "Everyone is right, we're burning through cash way too fast, and unless we find someone with another 100 million dollars, we'll be broke in six months, the game will crash and burn, and you'll all have nothing to show for the thousands of bucks you've given us."

I mean, get real. If they admit to any problems, people stop buying ships, and people buying ships is what pays their salaries.

Edit: Not making any judgments on whether they actually are in trouble or not, since I have no way of knowing, but even if they genuinely WERE in trouble, they'd obviously lie their asses off about it.

1. Witcher 3 Jul 9, 2015, 10:25 Creston
 
Alrighty, time for me to bite the bullet on the Witcher 3. Can someone with the GOG version explain to me how their patching works? Is it still download and apply individual patches? If so, I may go for the Steam version, as much as I'd rather get it from GOG to get them the most money.

Thanks

News Comments > Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch Adds MP Content
7. Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch Adds MP Content Jul 8, 2015, 10:55 Creston
 
Come on, why are you guys hating on them for giving away free MP content?

I mean, I don't particularly enjoy the MP in DA:I (and I played hundreds of hours of it in ME3), but they're still giving away a lot of free stuff for it. If you happen to enjoy it, you'd be getting a lot of mileage out of your 60 bucks.

I just wish they'd add some meaty sp DLC. (Jaws of Hakkon really isn't that great.)

1. AT&T gives poor people DSL. Jul 8, 2015, 10:08 Creston
 
*very very small print*: The 1.5Mbps for poor people will only be offered to those locations where there already is a phone line connected and a DSL node exists within 1000 (?) feet. We are not committing to building any actual new connections.

Edit: It's not actually even in small print. It's just there.

Qualifying residents in areas where AT&T's top speeds are below 5Mbps (that's not a typo) will be offered DSL service of "up to 1.5Mbps, where available" for $10 a month

In other words, there will be roughly three apartment buildings in the US where residents even qualify for this.

They are burning through that 85 million at an absolutely absurd rate. This is what, the sixth office or so they have now? Rent and bills for all that office space alone probably is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Shame. We were stuck with shitty DX versions until Mantle came out, then suddenly MS made a nice looking DX in 12.

Competition = good.

[it] converted many of my Matched and Uploaded tracks to Apple Music files, which, if re-downloaded, contain DRM.

Unbelievable. Why does Apple never earn the Worst Fucking Corporation award?

DEREK SMART!!!! RAEEEGGGG!!!

Actually, he says very true things. If I'd spent 5K on Star Citizen, I'd be getting really frikking worried about now.

Honestly, the best thing they could do is ditch the whole FPS / boarding part, and just focus on getting the SPACE part out of the door.

Well DUH.

Stop preordering shit.

Typically I would agree with you Creston, but WBIE and Rocksteady's track record was pretty damn good up till this point.

Wasn't the last Batman game also a piece of crap on the PC (at first, anyway?)

If no review code of PC versions is available until after launch, it means the publisher is just trying to steal pre-order money with a shitty port. And as long as everyone keeps preordering in order to get a single bonus mission (which lasts 7 minutes), they're going to keep pulling this shit. (Although I will grant that Steam refunds may eventually shift the tide on that attitude.)

I've heard everything from Samsung to Facebook to now Microsoft wants to buy AMD.

It actually makes incredibly good sense for MS to buy AMD. The savings on licensing fees alone would make the entire thing worth it in 2 to 3 years tops.

Compared to buying Skype or aQuantive, this is a no-brainer for them. AMD can essentially be had for peanuts right now.

Fuck you, FCC Republican. I think calling it a human right is going too far, but not a necessity? All your necessities require money, which requires a job (or being a trust-fund baby), and good luck getting a job in 2015 without having access to the internet.

Someone find how much money this cockwallet received from Comcast et al.

You may remember last year’s rewards program from Assassin’s Creed Unity.

"You know, it was the one where we allowed you to buy $99.99 worth of points, but only gave you a grand total of $57 to spend it on. Wasn't that fun?"
