Can't believe so many people did that huge download. I started it until I realized how big it was and then canceled.
Not everyone is on dial-up like yourself.

Sorry, I was joking. I got Cata the day it came out. Within a month or two, I was done. The game changed from what used to be fun, yet sometimes tedious to just tedious all the time.
WoW is tedious? Buhahhahaahahha!!!

Sorry that is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. I never got into the game because it was such a easy, casual gamer, boring, pile of shit. Why do you think people made jokes like 'you can level up 3 times by just dropping your mouse'.

WTF?! Its delayed **AGAIN**?!

First same day release. Then NOV 15th. Now NOV 22nd.

About to just buy this damned thing on PS3.

And that's exactly what they want you to do.
And I am trying to resist. But game after game coming out late (even as much as a day tho the track record is a few months) makes it harder to wait for the PC version especially when it is not a FPS game (I just CAN NOT play FPS games with a controller).

Sorry, but the developers screwed up on this one. If it was available when the console versions were, I would have bought it at premium pricing.

Skyrim will monopolize my PC gaming time up until SWTOR is out (and longer perhaps). I have no time for Arkham City until maybe some time next year. I will be buying it a bargain prices then.

So you're saying they should have launched with the consoles even though it wasn't ready and would have been buggy, or that they should have launched all 3 platforms on November 22nd when everyone everywhere is playing Skyrim and MW3 and waiting for this to hit the bargain bins?
There is no reason it should not have been completely done at the same time they released it on console.

NO ONE can seam to properly schedule PC development time so all versions are out on the same date. Oh wait... no one gives two shits about PC gaming anymore.

News Comments > Australian R18+ Final Guidelines

Are people here that thick headed?

Simulation = GTA3. Guy and hooker get in car. All you see is the car bouncing up and down and the windows fogging up. You know whats happening it is just not outright shown.

Real Thing = Outright showing two people fucking.

Drug use related to incentives and rewards is not permitted.
So I guess the idiotic censorship of Fallout 3 and the "morphine" would have still run afoul of this rule as it acts like a 'incentive'.

So yeah. Again. This rating would not get the GTA games off the hook or a bunch of others. Mostly because of the vague as shit "offensive to a reasonable adult".

I am surprised how very very similar Uncharted 3 is to 2. Looks like the same assets were used. Same gameplay mechanics.
Must be playing on a SDTV.

Well looks like PAX is locked into Boston from now on. So much for ever going to one.

Would think they would pick a more sensible location on the East Coast like, I don't know, somewhere in the middle? Not to mention stupid expensive hotels. I don't remember paying ~$180+ for rooms at Otakon.

News Comments > More on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Boss Woes
16. Re: More on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Boss Woes Nov 2, 2011, 18:12 necrosis
 
1) I like how this is a big deal. It means people actually cared about the game. If it was a "shitty console port" no one would have given a rats ass about the boss fights.

2) The boss fights were hard? Really? And I am talking about *NOT* using typhoon to kill them as I never did my first play through. Shotgun only as I never used it anywhere else in the game so I had tons of ammo for it. First boss took a few tries. Other two only once. I guess I play FPS games to much or something.

Disk checks? The last game I played with a disk check was Diablo II. Also the last game I had that Daemon Tools alone could spoof the disk requirement. Just made a ISO and scripts to load it when it launched.
I hear that the professional version of DT still works with far more modern disk checks.
Humm might check it out. I have some older games that I play every so often where the developer hasent removed the disk check.

Awesome... Now if only I could get the game to progress past the "Initializing" status. Worked the first day and hasn't since.
Maybe you could try the crack? hah!

Just remember though, you'd be a filthy pirate then. Even though you already own the game.

I actually "crack" all my disc-based games. I'm in Canada so we don't have anti-circumvention laws like the US has in the DMCA. It's legal to do it here if it's for a legal purpose. The reason I crack my games? To remove disc-checks. So I don't have to dig out the darn disc every time I want to play a game. I also legally own all my games. There wasn't always a time when I could claim the high-road but I can now. So, as a paying customer I'm just giving myself a better experience. Being able to remove disc-checks in Canada may change soon however, there is legislation tabled right now which would introduce the worst of the US's style of DMCA. Sigh.
Disk checks? The last game I played with a disk check was Diablo II. Also the last game I had that Daemon Tools alone could spoof the disk requirement. Just made a ISO and scripts to load it when it launched.

I guess my main reason for lack of seeing disk checks is because I have used Steam since DA:O came out.

It isn't monitoring, it's looking at directories. From what I understand it is not opening anything.

Still not right, but it's basically doing what 90% of Google's programs do. Remember Google Desktop? Does Google even still make that? Now that was a program that looked at everything you did in detail...
Well considering Google Desktop was a search program it sort of has to touch all files on your computer to, well, search.

Origin has no fucking business touching anything outside its own directory and system files.

Like I said, still wrong. But you know what Google was doing with everything it searched, right?
Do you really know what anyone is doing with anything they collect from you?

Why does this game look like some stupid 'shock factor' title along the lines of Postal and Duke Nukem? Gaining hype just because they like to push the line and deliberately poke people's buttons?
