Next you're going to tell me EA didn't remove their games from steam to bump up sales of them on Origin. Of course, EA paid for that and had to re-up them on steam to placate the masses.
Actually no. EA did not remove them. Valve booted them off because then ran against the new ToS for putting games on Steam. Which was if you offer DLC for a game that is on Steam you MUST also offer the DLC on Steam. EA only offered the DLC via ingame purchased/Origin.

News Comments > No PC Halo 4 Because It's "Designed Specifically for Xbox 360"
31. Re: No PC Halo 4 Because It's Nov 7, 2012, 00:49 necrosis
 
Halo has left a bad taste in my mouth since the first, and made worse with the second. Why? The insane hype for such a subpar game.

The first time I played Halo it felt like the DOOM clones from 5 years prior. Stupidly bland maps that were copy and pasted. Halo 2 was more of the same. Yet people flipped their everloving shits over the game like it was the best thing since sex. It just infuriated me that people held this piece of crap game so high when PC FPS's were lightyears ahead.

Could never get into these, despite trying several times. Not bad (heck, I love the concept) but something else always ended up grabbing my attention away.

<Looks at brotherhood, still in shrinkwrap, sighs>


I'm replaying 2 atm and Brohood next. I'll grab 3 soon.

Soon = in 1 month, at least, if your playing on PC.

Assholes have us on a delay as usual for no fucking reason other than to be pricks.

News Comments > Valve Play Testing
9. Re: Valve Play Testing Oct 10, 2012, 08:47 necrosis
 
I like the motion sick part.

I have HORRIBLE motion sickness problems. To the point I can barely be a passenger in a car. If I read anything its instant puke city. Don't even get me started on boats and airplanes.

BUT

No computer game (PC or console) has EVER made me motion sick. Even with the bulshit FOV's these asshat developers are forcing on us on these horrible PC ports. Bad FOV only pisses me off. It does not make me sick.

"One of our driving factors is a completely faithful reproduction of the gameplay experience. PC players can expect a completely identical experience to what console players came to love in DA 2."
And that right there makes me shiver and not want to touch this game with a 1,000 foot pole.

Love the comments after this article with people reamin Apple, US patent law, and how the fix was in for Apple on their US win. Not only do I hope Samsung crushes them on appel but that the judge in that case should come under criminal investigation or at least a formal judicial review.
I guess justice is blind, and so are you.

I really have no idea how anyone can say Samsung did not copy the iPhone.

Steam seems to be have gotten it right.

What has Steam got to do with this? Steam is a kind of DRM itself and AAA games there cost the same as on retail, although they should be cheaper with no media and box and stuff. If you buy them years later or on a sale, the price has nothing to do with retail vs digital distribution!
(1) Steam does not set prices. The game companies do. Point your teen rage in the right direction at least.

(2) Steam DRM is NOTHING like Ubi DRM. Steam at most needs a one time online activation. But hell you need to download the game anyhow so this is basically not an issue.

So yes. Steam has found a good balance between keeping piracy down and keeping customers happy.

Maybe people are driven to piracy to spit in your face because of draconian DRM? Not to mention PC versions of their games coming out MONTHS after consoles.

God the industry is still fucking clueless.

News Comments > OnLive Layoffs Follow-up
24. Re: OnLive Layoffs Follow-up Aug 18, 2012, 19:52 necrosis
 
I find it hard that anyone would really take to this.

With ISP's cracking down on bandwidth usage (I read early OnLive tests required a very decent amount) and insane overage charges for one thing. Another with people breaking out the torches and pitchforks against always online DRM (Ubi) which this is even worse as you do not even have a physical copy of the game to crack of the DRM servers shuts down.

Personally there is no way in hell I would pay for this service if the game still cost full retail. They literally need to be half that or strum up some kind of subscription service.

But in my personal experience with Gaikia, in terms of playability, so far is not that bad. Then again I have Comcast Blast! (recently doubled UL/DL in the north east) so bandwidth is not an issue. Its also free to me right now so yeah. I need to get Cacti running and monitor the switch port my TV is plugged into to see what it is actually pulling.

It sounds like a great idea for demo's but you have to be at least partially retarded to buy into it.

I would not even call these challengers.

EA strong arming you and only letting you get digital version from their service and this thing from Ubi (insane DRM aside) is not even on par with Stem.

As I understand it, he won't be arrested, but he can still be tried and convicted. From the article:

Mr Boonsong faces a maximum of 10 years imprisonment and a 20,000 baht fine if convicted.

So, not only would he have to pay the 20K baht ($636) but he'd also have to do 10 years in a Thai prison, which is no cakewalk. And that's IF they determine it was accidental. If it is premeditated he could get the death penalty. By firearm. Apparently they shoot until dead, as many bullets as it takes.
And they do the same thing if you insult their king!
