Delayed/not released/whateveryouwanttocallit this long basically makes a release pointless. This far out no one cares.

Wait. "Call of Duty Elite" which is still broken as fuck and not out for PC?

Oh wait. Your average PC gamer is smart enough to not buy into this bullshit.

Judging from their list of games that won I'd say you are looking at everything submitted already ;p

Best story: Edna .. for real? Not Deus EX HR?

Best Soundtrack: Crysis 2... for real? Not deus EX HR which has one of the greatest soundtracks ever to be conceived?

Best Art Design - Harvey's New Eyes .... not wanting to sound like repeater.. but DX HR actually invented a whole new interpretation of neo-renessaince style.

Best Simulation - Farmer Simulator ... because Anno 2070 is not a simulation..???

Best Strategy Game - Patrician IV: Rise of a Dynasty . that isn't even a game, its a addon also it released in 2010 (the game) only the addon came out later. By that logic every DLC ever released should be for vote as well)

Best RPG - Drakensang Online (Thats a browser game) so mega huge LOL for that.
Skyrim anyone?

Best Action Game - Crysis 2
Because the votées couldn't decide between BF3 and MW3 ?

Best Studio: Fishlabs develops Iphone and MAC games, has absolutely no international traction.

So really, what you are looking at in that list is the best German games while ignoring that Germany has no real games industry award.
Granted this is a German award show the only game on that list that I ever heard of is Crysis 2. Also that is probably why you don't see MW3/BF3/Skyrim/DX:HR.

Is this the patch that makes towns not run like ass if you don't have a 4+ GHz CPU?
Complaining that the game does not work on hardware running outside its default spec? People actually do this?

This is cool... to bad it does not work.

It does. If your profile is private, you need to put in your id # not your name. Look at the directions.
I do not have a custom URL (because the one I want is taken and really don't care). The FAQ says you can use the 17 digit community ID but that does not work. I get the same thing Halo does. And yes, everything is set to public except commenting. I even set that to public and it did not work.

Works fine. One time activation after install. Once that is done there is no need to be online to play the game.

I think that's fairly common in places where broadband is uncommon or prohibitively expensive for most people, like Russia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, etc.
I think it is more because the law enforcement there just does not give a shit.

I bought Witcher 1 twice (physical and Steam) and I am going to do the same for Witcher 2 just because I love these guys that much.

And FYI: AC:R has one time activation.

So you don't have to log in to Uplay whenever you want to play the game?

Brotherhood was DRM free, so it wouldn't be too surprising. It had an activation with Uplay but you could sign-in offline instead.
Only if the asses made AC:2 like this. Damned thing still requires internet at every launch. Stupid when AC:B came out. Really fucking stupid now that AC:R is finally out.

You have to use it. But once the game is activated you can kill the internet and still launch.

Eh? The whole point of the UI is to make it so you never have to take your hands off WASD and the mouse.

Except for the fact that you have to press Enter to confirm a lot of things. Or press Tab to bring up the general menu overlay. Or press J to check your journal. Or press P to check your spells. Or press T to wait. Or press T to recharge enchanted weapons. Or press E to interact with things. Or press R to pick up everything. Or press / to check your skills and perks. Or press Q to bring up the "quick select" inventory.

Skyrim's UI wasn't designed to be efficient with mouse and keyboard. If it were, they would have added scroll bars because every single menu involves scrolling. And they would have supported PgUp/PgDn/Home/End to make this scrolling less tedious. And they would have allowed me to hotkey 10 items, not 8. And I would be able to hotkey these items directly from the inventory, rather than having to mark them as favorites, then hotkey them from the "quick" menu.

I have to imagine that anyone who actually likes Skyrim's UI doesn't do alchemy. Because the amount of scrolling I have to do just to make potions is ridiculous.
The UI is horrible trash designed for a controller. Realized this after playing for about 30 seconds. It is the one thing that keeps me from playing this game for 3+ hour sessions like I did with the Witcher games. The UI just drives me mad after a while and feels like I am fighting the game itself to just play.

Give us something with the impact, scope, and craftsmanship of a Battlefield 3 and the business model of a Ghost Recon Online.
No thank you. I do not want anything like Ghost Recon Online and its F2P model.

I want games that are not shovelware. I want games that WORK AT LAUNCH. I want games that are not delayed for months just to please console sales. I want games where we are not nickle and dimed with DLC that should come with the game and having to pay for dedicated servers when we already have the hardware and bandwidth to host games ourselves. I want the ability to modify my game how I see fit.
