As we advocate around here, read and teach yourself. Starting at a young age the saying "If it is too good to be true" applies here. If you get burnt, it is simply another lesson in life, as bad as this is, it didn't cost you that much for a lesson, in fact you got a discounted lesson charge, right?
Actually, no. TrustPilot shows G2A and Kinguin to be reputable websites. Consumers have no reason to suspect trouble. It's like credit card breaches at Target and Chick-fil-A, consumers have no reason to suspect any issues when paying by card.

The issue here is that Ubisoft is shifting the burden. Rather than accepting the loss and taking action to prevent credit card fraud it simply deactivates games and screws over consumers who thought they had bought a legitimate version. Consumers have no way of knowing what goes on behind the scenes - all they see is Ubisoft fucking them over.

Really it is the banks who should be held responsible. If a purchase is made using a stolen credit card then the bank should be responsible for the charges made, which would incentivise them to improve security.

I've always known inside when I go somewhere just to buy a key and it is discounted the way they are, flags are raised. So if one got burnt here learn, one of the cheaper lessons you'll learn.

If it were heaven, then I would totally lean a different view, but you have to know your surroundings.

Not following you here. "No innocents, only the weak" is because he's a psychopath, and the rest I'm not sure who BN is or what you mean.

Well by the time we have to worry about Super Intelligent AI, the middle class will have collapsed and human labor will be so cheap the machines will hire people to do the jobs they don't want to. Today's theoretical future threats are tomorrows job providers.

Right, the jobs will be a large hurdle to deal with, which will be in front of self aware computers.

Who is still playing Diablo III anyway LOL

Lots are still playing the game. Those with short attention spans, or are of the whiny entitled gamer generation, aren't.

Short attention span? After this much time, I think it's very ok if one has moved on.

They laundered the money through these key selling sites. It's common with key stores for large batches of keys to be used by the providers as a way to launder money and get away with credit card fraud like this.

You hear that, all of you entitled brats who think it's cool to save money by buying cheap keys? You are responsible for the increase in CC fraud. You are fueling organized crime. It's your fault that some hapless people now have to deal with unwanted charges on their bills. But hey, it's all good as long as you can get them cheap gamez right?

There is some truth in that but...

1. How does a person know this fuels organized crime? It's a sale, who knows really, right? Do you have proof? Is it readily available?

2. $40+ dollar games are now considered expensive, so people wanting to get a bargain, get that.

3. Wages have been stagnent while cost of living continues to rise, what can one expect? Amazon and Wal Mart are popular due to low prices.

4. There is still a cheaper place they could go, right?

System Shock 2 was a great game, but it kind of pales next to the original, IMO. Someone on Origin's forum once said that the first System Shock is Die Hard on a space station, and I always felt that was extremely apt. In System Shock, you're constantly running to stop SHODAN's next insane plan, and you constantly feel harried and scared. In comparison, SS2 is kind of a casual jaunt through a scary ship. Still a great game, but not as good as the first.

Both are landmarks, SS was a lot more evolved vs Doom that just came out a tad earlier and SS2 and why you probably here more about it, more available, better gfx, but imo most importantly, it had a voiced narrative as you played the game without pause in action, like a Borderlands. Still today, enough games don't do that well, but there was easily 10 years where next to none but SS2 did. That is what made it stand out and well it had a cool story to tell. It was a game 3d cards boosted, where SS there was none of that, timing.

Typically you can take the console rev / 2 (MS/Sony) and yo are in the ballpark of pc sales, seems imo close enough to call them all equals, even though not all games come to console or pc, the one's that aren't mmo's not coming to the PC, I do question why not?

As said, no real # on DA:I but lets do some math: 113 million hours played. Lets say the average is 20 hours per player 5 million, so 40 hours 2.5. You make the call.

EA isn't a bellweather for PC gaming, but it still holds its own these days there.

Why would the victim of fraud be expected to reimburse those who tried to take advantage?
1. Because most of those buyers arent aware what kind of keys they purchased. This is not some kind of backstreet business where you are offered iPhones from a shady guy out of his van.

You are right, there is no van, just the trusted internet, where anyone can be a salesman anonymously, an advantage even shady van guy doesn't have.

As we advocate around here, read and teach yourself. Starting at a young age the saying "If it is too good to be true" applies here. If you get burnt, it is simply another lesson in life, as bad as this is, it didn't cost you that much for a lesson, in fact you got a discounted lesson charge, right?

So if this is your first burn on keys with FC4, I suggest wisen up a little. Other wise it's, "shame on me" going forward.

Free to start is what I've been touting for mmo's, in my case Free to Sub. The benefit is everyone can try it out, huge beni and if you like it you sub from there. I still prefer subs to microtrans for mmo's, so you don't feel shortchanged or pressured to have a constant buy. And the sub shows a commitment so it weeds out some bad apples. Well that is if there was a mmo worth playing anymore.

i7 3700, 16gb ram, 660ti

Everything maxed, shadows in low, runs great.

Shadows high / medium? The lag/chop everyone talks about. Lower shadows it plays great, no big loss on appearance.

Yep Shadows low, the oldest trick in the book now for boosting frames. No prob if that is it, do it all the time. Big FPS for usually a very small benefit.

Oh and the usg SLI which should be awesome preforms worse because the game isn't optimized for it out of the gate trick. I would have been all over SLI if it just was a no-hassle thing and I'm a pretty heavy tinkerer. The old Voddoo 2's you just put them together, no nothing else and boom, a huge increase, in this case, the good old days of SLI'ing.

I'm having fun, about 2 hours in, feels like dead island + assassians creed in first person.

Performance is meh, but i'm running it on dual 780ti's.

Not a bad combo.

About the 3.5 gigs on top texture settings, I see the 970 screaming... "Why me?".

Yeah at 85% favorable, which is above my passing grade of 80%. However the majority of the negs are about performance issues, which many shouldn't be too surprised knowing who is making it... aka "Patches Welcome".

Right. This dude just shot down every concert ever. Never made the correlation to watching a concert or sporting even, same matter, to sitting in a traffic jam.

Microsofts Hololense seems to be very cool and the obvious reason they bought Minecraft. But I wouldn't trust their little hype video as far as I could throw it.

This. So what are we to believe?

Where I sit in my room, the goggles will find all the flat surfaces and place minecraft objects on them. Really? That's a mind blowing trick. I turn around and look at the dinning room, now a whole new set of minecraft platforms just appear?

Then somehow it actually plays to? How do I jump from one living room platform to another? Now I'm playing in God Mode vs FP mode.

Is it only single player?

How do I add lands?

How do I edit things?

It's Milo all over again until someone I trust goes into detail exactly how this plays out.

I would love it to work, like Milo. But we just don't have these mind bending changes.
