Better that than a right wing nut who will destroy his country for an imaginary friend in the sky.

None of this will ever happen, because they are focused on LOTRO and "new projects". Even DDO is in "red headed bastard step-child" mode.

It's a shame too, because if it weren't for the macros (and to a lesser extent, the graphics) AC would be the best MMOG out there right now. WoW set the bar so low for innovation that nobody is putting in effort. WoW is hardly removed from EQ and DAoC, while AC was totally different from anything at the time, and still is.

I don't know why, but when I see THQ, I always think of low quality/boring NES games like Fun House...

Haha, same... that and crappy movie franchise games.

Broadband in Canada is a joke, and the CRTC are the comedians. Canada used to have far better broadband than the US, but they sat on their lead. Now my friends in Seattle have 15/15 FIOS for a bit more than what I pay for 3/.6 DSL in Vancouver (complete with broken routing and horrible customer service). Cable was even worse when I had it, and I can just forget about FIOS ever coming here. Oh well, I'm probably going to be moving back to the good old USA soon anyway.

This game is about 100% overpriced for what it is, and what it offers.

Agreed. I wasn't terribly interested in it to begin with, but after I saw the price tag I knew I wouldn't be getting it.

I could say the same thing about the millions that enjoy television, or the millions that enjoy Harry Potter books, or millions that go to dance clubs, or the millions who drink themselves into a stupor, or any other forms of entertainment... but I'm not going to because that's what they call fun.

I am, because I'm a cultural elitist. Anyone who plays WoW past the age of 12 is a man-child.

Watching the crowd at the midnight sale last night, I am so glad that I never got tied up in WoW and that I stopped playing before I could get "addicted".

Same... I played it for 2 weeks back in first-year uni because a bunch of my floormates were playing it. I got bored of it and quit. Blizzard just sent me an email offering 10 free days on my old account... I don't think I'll be taking them up on the offer.

Also, video game addiction is real. One of those floormates I mentioned was a serious WoW addict. He sold his account with multiple maxed-out chars, and then took over his brother's old account. He dropped out after first year because he skipped his finals to play WoW. He wasn't dumb either... he couldn't have been or he wouldn't have got into that university.

did they fix fullscreen sticking on multiple monitors? no, of course not, because apparently it's a security issue to use your computer when you have a fullscreen video running on another monitor. go figure

More socially responsible does not equal capital-S Socialism.

Forgive him... he's been brainwashed by the GOP's latest strategy to equate Obama with Socialism.

I find it so funny how "redistribution of wealth" has become a buzzword for the GOP. What next, "rule of law"?

Here in Washington State 37 of 39 counties are now strictly vote by mail with King County (Seattle) going to it next year. Personally I really like it.

Yep... I'm registered in one of those 37 counties, though I have to vote by mail anyway since I don't even live in the States right now. Either way, it's nice.

I swear, it's like some of you PC gamers don't really want the PC platform to actually enjoy some success. You're just happy to slag every press release with bizarre conspiracy theories and accusations.

Amen to that. The sense of entitlement among some PC gamers is just astounding.

That's not a good sign for GTA IV too. The one preview I saw for GTA IV said the slowdowns were the same for PC as for consoles. So this is two indicators that the PC version will be, at best, not optimized or improved much.

Bully was made by a different studio, so I don't think there's much to worry about, especially considering the high quality ports of the GTA3 series.

what's the problem? Wii Fit appeals to a larger audience (in more ways than one) than GTA4.

Beat me to it. If person likes said company/game, well then they're supporting their game with new content. If they don't, they call it milking and micropayments.

The difference is that EA gives a stripped-down version of the game at release. The expansions add things that should have either been released with the game or released for free. While I've never played this game, I haven't heard any similar accusations leveled at this game.

If you were still in need of a conclusive verdict on the fact that most movies based on games suck, TIME has spoken.

Most? I can't think of a single game-based movie that doesn't suck.

I just want to see them nerf the scout, I don't care if they don't release any more achievements, as long as they nerf that little crackhead.
