It makes me feel cynical to suspect they may have been just hoping I wouldn't notice

There's nothing cynical about that, that's just the reality. AT&T and Verizon even go so far as to call it a "revenue source".

And why wouldn't they? It's not as if they get penalized beyond a mild "tsk tsk" if they get caught.

News Comments > Crytek to Repair Reputation with "Really High Quality Games"
12. Re: Crytek to Repair Reputation with Aug 19, 2014, 10:10 Creston
 
F2P and really high quality usually don't go hand in hand, especially when EA is involved...

We'll see what they come up with. They really need to branch out from the Crysis type gameplay anyway.

When I was 9, I think I spent a lot of time flat on my face after I'd fallen off my bike.

At age 9, Ryan Carmack made a game, and then put a grandma mode in it.

Wooohoooo! Between this, Wasteland 2, Original Sin and Witcher 3 in February 2015, it's a fucking GREAT six months for RPGs.

Hard to keep ignoring the Oculus, tbh.

I don't like the fact that Facebook has its paws on it any more than Notch, but it is what it is.

It's high speed if you consider 12mbps as high speed. It's also a promo price, regular price will be $100/month after the six month promo period ends. Not much of a bargain if you have any other broadband option at all.

I'd probably kill someone to get 12Mbps, so to me it's pretty sweet.

And satellite is always a last-ditch resort, because the ping makes playing any games simply impossible. But at least it's becoming a last-ditch resort that's somewhat interesting speed/cap wise.

I'm about 2/3rds of the way through, and it's certainly memorable...


Did you play the PS3 version?

Typically Microsoft:

in late 2012 and early 2013 when the first discussions started about the purchase and Nokia was the desirable object Ballmer and Bill Gates had been wanting to have for a decade…

2003: Hey, Nokia is awesome!

ten years pass

2013: Hey, remember how Nokia was awesome ten years ago? LET'S BUY THEM! What, it's currently a complete has-been in the mobile world? NEVER MIND BUY IT ANYWAY!

idiots.

Without having read the article, let me guess. 10GB monthly cap?

Oh wow, 150GB. That'd almost be worth something, if it didn't come with satellite's usual BS. But hey, at least they've realized that offering high speeds with a stupidly low cap is fucking pointless.

Still a rumor about Star Wars, but this news item last month makes it look that way.

Wonder how George feels about that, and if he had any say.

Speaking of revisionists, I got nervous a few weeks ago when Peter Jackson talked about going back and inserting more footage in Lord Of The Rings. Don't be a George, Peter!


It's good news about the original trilogy coming out, but honestly, this:

The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their complete, unaltered, original form without the redone special edition SFX.

kinda has me disappointed. Some of the SFX they cleaned up was really quite well done and it fixed some pretty glaring errors in the original. I'd have been happy with them leaving the upgraded SFX in, as long as all the retarded story changes Lucas made got axed.

Even so, I'll still buy it, of course, once it reaches a decent price level. I'm going to guess Disney is going to sell it for at least 50 bucks at first, and probably more like 80...

Hrm, what exactly do they consider the original release? Through Steam?

Is there some release AFTER the original that isn't the Director's Cut?

? The original Dragonfall release? And now they've added missions to it, and overhauled combat, and overhauled the UI, and are re-releasing it as a director's cut.

As long as it's optional and there isn't a quest midway through the game where you have to win a fucking card tournament, I don't care.

If there's a mission like that, though, I sure hope someone will mod that shit out of there. That annoys the crap out of me.

Microsoft can't keep just tossing around money to buy exclusives,

Sure they can. After all, the rest of MS makes more than enough to make up for the $50-100 million morons like Spencer spend on exclusivity for a single game.

If the Xbox division ever was to get split off, then suddenly it would have to stand on its own merits, and it'd likely just die in a year. (which is also why they won't split off, because they love suckling on the Office money teat.)

Half our homebrew apps run on IE (and refuse to run on Chrome or FF), so we're stuck with using IE 8. I probably clean malware at least 15-20 times a week...

And I try to explain to people "Only use IE for these apps, if you use the internet, please use Chrome or Firefox", and they don't get it.
