Some people think they're junk, some people like them. That's why they're... dun dun dun... an option!

I love CEs... art books are my favorite too, so this one sounds nice. Hope it comes to the US.

Thank you for relaying the obvious. =P

Special Editions = More junk to collect dust in the basement.

I typically dont buy them unless its something WAY awesome in the game. Even Dragon Age SE didnt apeal to me. Most just dont. Though I do like the TINS they used to use a lot of the time. I picked a couple of those over the years.

"I can confirm that Firaxis has realigned its development resources in order to streamline its development process, reduce costs and maximize the overall performance the studio," 2K global PR director Markus Wilding

PR speak is devoid of humanity.

I was totally going to comment on how they like to use sugar coated words like "realigned" and "maximize performance" lol.

i tend to agree with steve jobs on bluray. people i know who work in the movie industry think that its a stop gap technology to something better because they are already shooting movies at much higher resolutions than 1080p. even 35mm film has more resolution than what current HDTV offers. i have scanned 35mm velvia film to 75 megapixels and people could not tell the difference between it and a medium format or digital source.

That's not what he's getting at (in fact, as you're getting at, film professionals have been shooting at far higher resolutions for far longer, as many of the restorations of old film prints will attest). By that logic, DVD is as much of a "stop gap technology" as Blu-Ray.

What Jobs is saying is that physical media for movies is irrelevant because he wants you to download movies from the iTunes Store. Never mind the fact that most of the "high-definition" content on the Store is relatively slapdash in terms of quality (720p at bitrates as low as 2Mbit and stereo sound); because Apple can be the be-all end-all gatekeeper to content, he thinks that is the way to go.

I completely agree with that. Most all of Jobs rejections seem to be based on knowledge of a future, or a desire to dominate a branch of something, or of course a combination of both.

Edit: Or better put. Most of his rejections of things are purely driven by an agenda.

Who do we thank for the Top Five Hot Girls playing video games? lol

LOL

What I found odd is that the first one (with Rock Band) ended with a kid showing up. I'm guessing a son or young brother.

Yeah totally. Well did you not notice the kid sitting behind her to? Kids all over and a naked chick playing drums. lol

I bought beat hazard at full price when it came out since I dug audiosurf (being they are both games using your music lib), but I have to say it was in a horrid state then. I havnt re-installed since then though I have seen it has been making lots of updates.

EA's goal is to get into the MMO market. They've been trying to compete for years on end with little success. UO has been there ultimate which lives to this day. Mythic was to be there MMO place but as that seems to not be the plan anymore.

So what I'm getting is the only people who buy GoG are those who are anti-Steam?

Welcome to the minority I guess.

Thats not entirely true. I shop at both. I find gog to provider a niche service for me. Its got old games i want. I dont like how steam handles old games. GOG on the other hand seems to put some effort forth (along with the community there) to support the products sold there.

Steam is more my modern day route. Im a Steam > GOG > D2D guy. Though my first initial digital games were bought on D2D way back when it was new.

Ive bought a few games there. I dont think they are over priced, and the games I did buy worked with no fuss at all. I could always go in to the dosbox and tweak it if I like though. =)
