About the Madden, that was a rule change a while back, if the defender catches the ball in the field of play and falls into the endzone it was a safety, it was bull shit but it was. The play that made them review and change it was Charles Woodson of the Raiders against Seattle INT the ball running with the WR on a deep fly, he caught it around the 3 and their momentum ran them into the endzone where he was touched while on the ground. Result was a safety and millions of Raider fans pissed off as the play cost them a W.

In this case the ref was wrong, forgot the rule and will be reprimanded in NYC offices the following week.

And it is Win 7 and not Win 8. They basically know the score but do their best to ignore it.

This is pretty great news, Obsidian will likely do something solid with it since their Pillars of Eternity is looking to be the next gen RPG standards and should stick with the Baldurs Gate formula we all know and love.

Now if Larian can secure the old AD&D license for their next game, I'll be overcome with joy.

The part about Larian and D&D, does that mean we lose things like terrain effects? That to me is a big part of their secret sauce.

It's a huge part I agree, would work amazingly with DnD. Grease, Runes/symbols, Magic Circles, Stink cloud, Sleet, Blade Barrier, antimagic, Obscuring Mist/fog, summon swarm, control water/weather, flaming/invis spheres, wind walls, walls of fire/ice/stone,traps, tentacles, levitate (to avoid ground effects), etc. Really a ton of ways it would be even better than the current system. This doesn't even include the multitude of monster attacks or aoe, webs, breaths, traps, special "divinity" abilities, etc.

I'd imagine there would be less water and oil barrels everywhere, but there wouldn't be a need either if you could sling DnD type of spells in Divinity: Dungeons and Dragons!!

Ok... you sold me. I hope they get it and they use the current engine in general. As good as D:OS is, there still was a lot left at the table in terms of balance etc. This team has never been blessed with cash to release when done. I hope D:OS has afforded them the time to do their next game to finish.

Well, EA did say they were thinking about the whole Early Access process, so maybe this is their trial run with it or something.

News from some of the big players this past week, you can see they are now looking at the small indy style development process and methods. So I guess they've been shown up and now want to start dabbling in those realms. So it proves the win indy has been, now will they fuck it up or improve because of this? We shall see.

Ok, I take back what I said earlier, that looks absolutely awful. One long awesome button fest.

Wow I have to 2nd that, not at ALL what I was expecting, especially when they threw out words like "roots of PnP", "DnD", "Hallmarks of Bioware" "Deep combat progression" etc.

Yep, Bioware is dead in my book. Last game I truly enjoyed from them was NwN... held out hope for this long, can give up now.

Yeah 3rd, it didn't fit the description. It could still be good, but now knowing the direction they are taking, definitely not my preferred path. I'm still fairly hopeful from DA:I. That said, they all have to prove themselves to me on their own standing, nothing they make at this time will be a day one purchase.

Is 44% that impressive of a number from 4 years ago? I would think numbers like 300%+ would be more eye-opening.

Cevat Yerli: The primary cause was the transformation. We're observing where the industry is going. We knew free-to-play or games as a service - online services in general - will become the future of gaming. We've known this for a while.

We'll see about that, I don't think it's as clear as he makes it.

News Comments > July Steam Hardware & Software Survey

My 2.

In general get a shell app for win 8 and you'll be good for 99% of what you do as you'll come across something older that won't work. Other than that, slightly uglier in the classic shell mode but a smidge better overall than win 7.

Win 7 is simply quicker and more reliable than Vista. Once you tamed Vista it was pretty good, much better than the general audience would state, but Win 7 was still a good notch or two better. Vista running well was better than XP, but in those days XP users would swear they were superior to Vista, not near the end of the Vista cycle they weren't.

If Win7 was XP, many switching to Apple's would have never happened.

Just as long as these top people get to replace CEO's that are lesser then they are. "Universities, industry, sports teams want things like this", so they should be measured as well and if they don't live up to it, they should be replaced. Then we'll see how eager they are to be exposed in such a cold way.

It's like an even shittier version of a shitty ARPG.

That's how I would describe it, there are no real fond memories of the series.

LA has cameras on cops, they don't like them. Their reports do match to what the tape says, it puts a lot of pressure on them to do their job right. But the city is forcing them to, they can't afford the cost of their negligence.
