But any game that requires you to have a hundred kilobytes of awesome leet scripts to feel like you are playing properly just does not do it for me anymore. Maybe I am suffering from consolitist of the brain.

No, you've just grown up.

News Comments > Impulse's Million Man March

In which case an apology would have been nice, rather than a condescending reply telling my brother to learn more about customs.

Why should they apologize? It's not their fault and they had absolutely nothing to do with it. If there is no reminder on their website about the possibility of customs charges, then they should apologize and post that reminder. But I strongly doubt they don't already have such a reminder.

For what it's worth, I had a Stardock game shipped to Canada and there were no customs fees.

Wow, that's really... wow. I'm sorry but is it too much to ask for a company to understand international shipping and be honest about shipping costs?

Yeah, actually, it is too much to ask. There is no way to know ahead of time what customs charges will be incurred, if any. Usually the company has a disclaimer saying that they are not responsible for any customs fees... most likely something you didn't read.

I hope this game is overly dramatic, poorly written, cliche filled and constantly confuses breadth with depth, because that's what this show seems to be about...

Finally they updated this, this game was seriously broken gameplay-wise.

I think the Penny Arcade comic is shit and I'm a little disappointed in my elected representatives for wasting time on that, and PAX pales in comparison to Seattle's bigger events, but yeah, they do deserve all the praise they receive for Child's Play.

Nah, it's worse in GTA4 where drivers will randomly change lanes for no reason. I mean, does no-one check their mirrors? Dodgy.

They'll change lanes to get out of the way of an oncoming subway train... which is on the level below the road, of course.

Be careful shopping at Circuit City right now. My friends credit card number was nicked and had bogus charges on his account right after shopping there.

Wow... disgruntled employees taking advantage of the situation, or just a coincidence?

You do know what happened to people who exploited this last time around, right?

Something is rotten in Kirkland.

The loadout exploit is back too, this time involving the Bonk. Griefers can use any class with the Bonk effect, but it gives them a permanent, complete invincibility and speed-up effect.

I skipped UT3 but I'll be giving this a try since it looks like Epic are trying to make up for their past indiscretions.

Yeah... the Japanese don't care much for the PC as a gaming platform (my guess is because they didn't make it). Hopefully they don't treat it like their bastard Euro-American stepchild.

WTF has sentencing got to do with lawyers? The title should also read "or Pirate Bay founders will walk away with a big fat damages fee"

Maybe that's typical in Sweden? I'm pretty sure they don't use English common law.

Honestly I'm surprised they lasted as long as they have. They were lucky the last few years with some decent titles, but before they bought Volition they were right down there with WizardWorks and Activision Value.

even so..."selling adult-rated media to minors "...isn't that a bad thing?

If they mean AO-rated games, this bill is pointless because minors already can't buy them and there's already laws against it. I can only imagine they mean M-rated games.

GG you fucking jerks. Keep it up, and you'll soon reduce the last decent PC gaming site on the web down to your level.

Good work feeding the troll, morons.
