The only reason they're shutting it down is because they've already replaced it with something better. (Stingrays.)

News Comments > Pre-Steam Sale Prices Raised?

Sales haven't been as awesome as they used to be for awhile now. The days of games going down to 10 or 5 bucks within a year seem to be mostly behind us.

As for why this is allowed, I'm not sure what rule it breaks, but just vote with your wallet.

Yes, let's go after Curt Schilling some more. Don't bother putting the assholes who GAVE the man the loan in jail, but try to wring some more money out of someone who is essentially already bankrupt. Rolleyes

I wish Dragon Age Inquisition was on Steam. It's on sale for 14.99 which is awesome but I absolutely hate Origin and anything to do with EA.

EA would have to pay me to install and play Dragon Age Inquisition.

Is the game supposed to be bad? I honestly haven't read anything about it but I figured I might pick it up at some point.

It's actually quite good. There's a lot of MMO filler bullshit in it, which some genius at Bioware thought was a good idea, but the story missions are fantastic, the companions are cool as always (not quite Mass Effect level cool, but they're still cool), it's a gorgeous game to look at, and a lot of fun to explore.

For 15 bucks it's really great value.

Nice of them to give folks notice. They could have easily just hiked it and been done...


Yep.

Not a conspiracy, but it does seem fairly coincidental that MS (can) make(s) money off those settings.

Only one is an actual 'money maker' and that's the Ad ID one...even then that's pretty debatable. SmartScreen is basically malware 'protection', and Device Sync has absolutely no revenue potential.

Doesn't Device Sync do just that? Sync all your settings to all your devices? So they turn on the (alleged, I'll give you that) money makers, and then turn on Device Sync so the turning on of the alleged money maker gets synced to all your devices?

I don't really care one way or the other, but when it's such a specific set of settings that get turned back on, I'm not that eager to grab the "Oh, it was just a mistake." (Especially since it was the second or third such mistake of its kind in a row?)

I'm far more willing to believe that they try to sneak it through only to go "OOPS!" when the internet finds out again.

With the price standing, Turing will offer additional money-saving measures such as new, smaller bottles with only 30 tablets

Oh good, then your monthly bill will only be $22500! Why, that's practically a steal!

A studio based in Malta? Why do I get the feeling said studio only existed so middle management at their main studio could visit the Malta studio "for meetings"?

The Li-Fi technology used by Velmenni in the pilots is able to send data at up to 1GBps - more than 100-times faster than current Wi-Fi technologies.

Edit: GBps, not Gbps.

I just saw the blurb that they achieved 224GBps in lab conditions, holy hell.

Of course, with this being lightbased, and thus on direct line of sight only, it's going to be extremely limited in possible domestic usage.

Eh, I can see his point. If he makes no money off of it, why keep working on it. In the end you pay money for the game, and if the dev keeps supporting it after the fact, then hurray! But it shouldn't really be expected.

On the flipside, I don't know whether he promised to support the game for a certain period of time. If he did, then his customers have a right to be upset.

You can do hilariously bad things with the console. I tried to 'setscale' an irritating bush, that was messing up an awesome house I was trying to build, to 0 , and instead I apparently clicked, like, "THE WORLD", and setscaled that to 0, and oops.
LOL, what happened?

A fairly large chunk of stuff just went away, leaving me with a funny hole in the world through which I could see... I dunno, more world? It was weird. Then I tried to walk into it, and fell. And fell. And fell. I think my character is still falling.

I wonder what would happen if you tried 'disble' instead on the bush and hit the world instead. Well, I guess that would easily mess up your save game, if you saved afterwards.

I don't think a bush or the world are "disable" items. You can "markfordelete" them. So yeah, doing that to the world, or the ocean, would be fun the next time you load that zone.
