Or just buy another phone...

Good luck finding a top tier phone for $329 that doesn't require a 2-year contract.

Right but to the email I was quoting it said good luck getting one, perhaps get one at a premium on ebay, then at that time I suggest then just buy another phone instead.

Also we don't always have to be the tippy top either:

Snowden can't realistically be pardoned, think of the floodgates it could open if he were? He's right in many ways and I'm sure several politico's even agree, but just cannot happen and it wouldn't happen anywhere.

But Petraeus can get away with it? He did it for a blowjob, and Snowden did because he loved his country, and Snowden is the one condemned? Shows just who's really running America and has been for a long time now. If they can murder Kennedy and pardon Nixon everything else is child's play.

Wasn't really trying to compare one vs another, just on Snowden's sitch. Yes we are fully aware many things are fucked up. One is a general on the right side of the fence the other was an IT contractor on the wrong side. Did Pet. release as many docs as Snowden? I'm not up to speed on how much damage Pet let out of the hat.

I'm fed up with developers sticking to what works and creating entry upon entry within each series. Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim; C&C Red Alert 3; Assassin's Creed 5 Unity; Fallout 4; Far Cry 4; Wolfenstein TNO (tho I did love The Old Blood); the list goes on. It's just like the rehashing of films from the 90s and 80s, it's not fresh material, it's just remaking the same thing I've already experienced.

The games which have delighted me the most in the last five years have been Faster Than Light, Alien Isolation, Trine 2 (coop, never played Trine 1), and Team Fortress 2. All have been fresh, exciting experiences for me that had me pining for more time to play them when I was out doing things.

Right. But that is the difference corporate games vs indies. I'm totally ok with whatever corp games do because we have indy games. That is where the new ideas are coming from and a fair price. Good times.

Steam was at 1 billion in... 2012, I believe? And they'd been having 30% year over year growth, so if that continues, it's easy to see they'd be right around the 2 billion dollar mark by now. of course, I'm not sure that that 30% sustained itself since there is a lot more competition now.

Even so, Steam is essentially just a money printing press.

Yes they made the right call. Make games or make a game selling client? The saw a need that should have been part of the O/S and put the whole company behind it, took time and a lot of bumps.

Looks to be a great phone for half the price of the competition!
Camera tests show that it beats the iPhone 6 and comes close to the LG G4 and Galaxy S6.

Unfortunately, due to high demand you have to receive an invite to purchase one.
Just add your name to this Reservation List and cross your fingers.
Or, you could always buy one in a few weeks on eBay at a premium price.

Or just buy another phone...

There comes a time when you start seeing these games in Matrix-vision, as spheres and cubes traversing above a checkered grid, with mountains of data rising and falling at the horizon.

The magic is gone, everyone is making games from the same limited templates, using the same abstractions. The walls and limitations of every game are absolutely the same.

I feel that, maybe not that strongly. It is why I hope VR can give us a nice change up. Indies is probably where most innovation is at today.

I don't agree with Walking Simulator.

I'm replaying Fallout 3 and New Vegas during the gaming 'dry season' that is the mid-summer months.

Dry season? At best that means chipping away at an insurmountable back log. Not that playing F3 and NV are a bad choice, using the mod that puts the two together?

My prediction for F4: Pretty awesome.

Seems like many here want this to be the KNOCK BETHESDA DOWN version. So we can build them back up later. I see more of the same, with some nice additions, which is more of the awesome with new additions.

While I never cared for how they did classes, the world itself is amazing. Still one of the best environments in any MOG. Riding out of the Misty Mountains at sunset into Rivendell was always amazeballs.

I remember back in the day I wanted a love-child of LOTRO and DDO.

They're simply consolidating the population to cut costs on empty space. Basically, they're doing what most new MMOs do after a couple months once it boils down to a niche population.

Hope DDO is next, in a game where you want groups, mega-servers are nice. Not that this is that, but less means more in a LFG way.

ItBurn wrote on Jul 27, 2015, 22:24:
On another note, about the "too much content" argument, I don't think it's a case of too much content. The problem is how the content is presented. In Skyrim for example, there's a ton of content and it's never "too much". The problem with Witcher 3 is that the content is pushed into your face as soon as possible and you clearly know where it is at all times. You quest list becomes massive really fast because of the flashing job boards that you feel obligated to click on. Having these hundreds of quests makes you stressed about completing them, especially since if you wait too long, some quests will no longer give you worthwhile rewards. It's just stressful and unpleasant. You eventually get tired of the game before completing it because you've pretty much done everything.

I guess this is going to be a paragraph in my document :p

Yeah as we play games I assume most of us dream of how things could be better and how fantasy rpg's throw out quests to the point it becomes a mess, story-lines blurred etc. Someone needs a smart way to have it where perhaps a main story line and only one side ever available at once or something down that line, like anything would take some good engineering to make it just right.

One will say just take one, but that is like inventory objects you start taking everything at least for a good while, because you aren't sure how it can be used in the future. Some games mark things now as junk or sell only type objects, that helps.

I believe in too much content for many games, not all. Give me a good 10 hours for $10-20... get in, get out, before mechanics get boring, story gets sloppy, equals happy customer.

News Comments > Steam Security Hole Closed

Just reading what Blue's has listed here it doesn't make sense.

"this involved simply entering a blank in place of a required security response code, making it a trivial matter to hijack any account only by knowing a user's name"

1. The security code is Steam Guard. So just going by that. Steam Guard was compromised.
2. You still have to know the password to get to the Security Code. So no, not just the user ID.
3. If you say your forgot your password, then you need access to that persons email account to get the code there.

Well he seems confused. Same guy said it was Andrew 3 days ago.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/345180/discussions/0/....

Funny maybe he doesn't know there were different Witcha voices and whoever says that sounds like _____ ______ playing Geralt, he knows it was Geralt, but maybe not the actual persons name and just agrees.

"I hunt demons for a living"... WTF is Geralt doing hunting demons here?

I had the same exact thought. Seems like they are trying to capitalize on the success of the Witcher by having the same voice actor or someone who sounds exactly like him.

It's Andrew Wincott, the original English language voice actor from The Witcher. Not the current voice of Doug Cockle (TW2/TW3).


From Dev over on steam:
"You're not wrong. Victor Vran is voiced by Doug Cockle."

As for the voice, I wouldn't mind him trying something different in one of many ways. Vic is the Witcha!
