500 Mbps broadband for $55.

Let me guess, with a 5GB cap?

Yeah, right!

I wanted to elaborate on my comment earlier about the top guys being ballsy. I came across as saying they were defiant by making this move early but that's actually not entirely the case. They've been in talks with buyers (again, Samsung primarily) for about a year as I said, so them leaking it means they couldn't get the price they wanted. I stated that "AMD is overvalued" and that's true - however, people invested in the company (including top employees) want to get the most money they can. By leaking it early they are saying that negotiations failed and they are opening it to all bidders. This is good for consumers because transparency is always good, to explain my earlier comments.

I really wanted to invest in this company due to very low stock prices, but I just couldn't get behind any of their offerings as something that would take off. Good? Perhaps, but not good enough. I stayed sidelined, good thing, it dropped even a bit more.

But I thought all their upcoming stuff was going to be awesome. All they need is unquestioned "best of" and people will come, they weren't over-hyping were they?

"But, frankly, a lot of people also want a better value and don't want to have to pay for it. So we're not going to force people to do that. We give people the choice."

Except PC players, no choice for you.

Because all people aren't the same?

That's dangerous thinking there, citizen.

That said, the model for Guild Wars 2 was made clear. Pretty close to the GW1 model. People are whining too much here.

But GW's expansion model was standalone no? The only guy that took a real punch to the gut was guy who last week bought the first thinking they needed the first to get the second, to find out now, when you buy the 2nd you get the first free. They'll live, it was disposable income, they'll make bigger mistakes in their life.

Yes lets come up with the most cockamamie way to play a fucking 360 game on a PC, via a Bone streaming. Who comes up with this shit and thinks they have gold?

Fuck You Microsoft
Fuck You Microsoft
Fuck You Microsoft
Fuck You

In the nicest way since I don't care if you ever make a game that can be played on or streamed to a PC, I need more time, not more games. A feature no one asked for, because if they asked for Xbox games on a PC, they'd want it ported directly to it, not streamed. You think your doing something for PC gamers, imo you mock them by doing this.

Why oh why wouldn't I just play it on the console itself, why oh why would I stream it?

As it is, the expansion is overpriced. They'd be getting the same or worse reaction even if it didn't include the base game.

They aren't that far into left field how you describe it then. WoW gets the full $50 for their expansion which isn't close to the initial size of the base game and then you still get to pay $15/mo.

It's a mess, people complain all the time about this, Decision 2016, you decide.

After reading some of the rage, the worst case scenario was leading people that don't have GW2 thinking they need to buy that and then the expansion. To now find out they only had to buy the expansion for both. So they just paid for something they didn't need to. Probably not a lot in that boat, but that one would suck some.

"pricing for the upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion for Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet's MMORPG sequel."

Speak in riddles!!!

Is it an expansion or a sequel?

Whatever it is and how someone wants to split the hairs, it's their choice to charge what they want and yes ours to reply to it however we like. But if we no likey, don't buy it, plenty things else to play.

The AI is silently adding new content into FO4.

I like their games, they are what they are, sandbox with stories interwoven. If you're a pure story guy, better cheaper stuff available.

It's the first step to integrate the PC into the closed ShitBox eco system. Just wait how this will end. Hint: Not pretty.

If they allow 3rd party sofware installs on Windows, they do and they don't lock you into something that won't allow it (they aren't). Sure they can build there system, but we can just ignore and load whatever else we want. Or.... same as it ever wuz.

And to be honest, i like it that way. Windows is good plattform for a multitude of games from indies and majors, GfWL is vanishing into obscurity. I really do not miss anything MS could possibly offer besides providing a stable and solid OS.

Yeah I've reserved myself nicely into accepting that.

For more Kate boobs and then they drop here for Mariah, we need refund policy.

Must be nice to be able to drop 3k on that kind of disposable drivel.

So is the expansion that makes the game good?

The game is already good, you're just bad at it. I recall your whining from release where 'wahhhh the game is so hard, why isnt it turn based?!'. Go play a turn based game then instead of crying on here about it.

Yes game is very good. They did add one more pause mechanic in a patch, something like "Pause after every skill used" and that is by far the best setting I've seen to date in a pause based game if you want the TB feel. It's pretty sweet. Yeah not sure why one would think it is a bad game, IEmod is awesome to on top of.

MS lol, you lost your way when you made a console to compete with yourself. so they promising renewed support? lol

Cliff gets to see if having a popular name, albeit bad with the gamer community is better than not being known at all. Romero would have to say, probably not.

Benches? And with that hype dollar for dollar it better wipe the floor with NVidia offerings. I hope they do, we'll see, not holding breath.
