There was like a 1/2 dozen posts in here, starting with a reference to Brandy... What a good wife you will be. I guess Blue draws the line right there at Brandy and those first ~6 posts are gone... or I'm finally having one of those Flashbacks I was promised to have in the 80's. "You never know when you'll have one", lol.

Dont... like... puzzles? The hell is wrong with you people. I guess my only complaint against the first game was that other than the snazzy graphics, it was really no better than what inspired it. Definitely enjoyed it though, for whatever reason those grid-based 3d dungeon crawlers are my cup of tea. Eye of Beholder, Lands of Lore, Anvil of Dawn, Dungeon Master... mmm goodness.

Agreed, things like buttons on walls, like the predecessors always in the same place, with today's rez, could be a lot more varied. But it was their first one out, lets see how much they improve upon.

"It's not really about asking for the raise, but knowing and having faith that the system would give you the right raises as you go along. That, I think, might be one of the additional superpowers that, quite frankly, women who don't ask for a raise have. That's good karma. It'll come back"

Hahaha, what a load of crap. I'm sure he got to where he is by keeping his head down and doing his job with faith the system would recognize what a good and dedicated worker he is.

Here's faith in the system for most... look for another job while you are currently employed at your current. Best way to get a bump on avg.

I liked Tw2, sort of disappointing this has no coop play in it at all since TW's did have it. So they know how to do it.

LOL, point is Origin/UPlay aren't meant for all games like steam, it does't need a big social thing, you got a dozen other avenues. Right you don't give a shit, but I'm not anti business

That's funny because they make a token effort at implementing all of those features. I just want them to do a better job of it. I'm not anti business either but we're talking about gaming clients, not the stock market. If you care that much then go buy shares in EA, I give a shit about what affects me as a customer.

Someone should really tell this guy that removing me from his blacklist would prevent him from looking silly by posting the same shit I've said a few comments ealier. It happens so often I find it worth it to hereby stain my pride.

You seem to be saying this a lot with different people, maybe you should do some rumination on why people keep putting you on ignore instead of internet stalking them. If a bunch of people stuck me on ignore I would probably think about what I was doing to piss everyone off and contemplate some changes. In case that was too subtle its not them, its you. I've never seen you accept responsibility for anything so I have probably wasted my time typing this.

Bad Quoting, didn't say the last part, I don't use ignore, anywhere.

30fps was a joke 15 years ago, so why is it becoming standard now?
120fps is where games become alive

Because current gen consoles came out as abortions.

One could argue that is untrue, they operate at a loss. Yes the reinvest heavily, but at a loss.

Common misconception. In fact, they've been profitable for years. They've had 7 unprofitable quarters since 2002.

Fair enough, updating myself now...

Last 4 qtrs:
(126)
108
240
(41)

2012 a total net loss for the year.

Not crazy rosey, but I get it they are investing deeply into their future, we'll see.

Fine use steam for your social or skype or tumblr or facepunch or AoL (lol). Everything has to have a social thing? I say no, others may not.

Yeah Steam is totally the same thing as tumblr and AOL, you are really out of touch. The social features are totally free and optional. I can't believe anyone would try to present them as a negative.

And to the feature of running without Origin is a good one for sure. The point here is EA is saving 30% (valve's cut) by doing this. That is a big dot deal to a company and why it exists, well imo.

I don't give a shit what Valve charges EA, I want EA to make a better client. Free games are a nice gesture but making Origin less mediocre would be a better move. Guess which costs more? EA isn't your buddy, they aren't passing on that 30% savings to you.

LOL, point is Origin/UPlay aren't meant for all games like steam, it does't need a big social thing, you got a dozen other avenues.

Right you don't give a shit, but I'm not anti business, just really bad business. A company that can save 30% making their own store, I will not blame them for that. Nope they aren't passing the savings on, they are making a business decision to keep that instead of Steam keeping that.

This isn't fairyland.

The original was $15 if I recall correctly, but man it sold well, nearly a million copies now. Assume this is improved in many ways, shooting for $25, no big, to steep for you just wait.

1. Looks fun. A little cooridorish from the gameplay link.
2. However man you have to unload a lot of lead to kill Goliath, so what happens when it becomes one v one, seems impossible for the soldier to win.
3. If successful, I'll take Predator 6v1 in the futua.
4. Biggest strike, their website doesn't allow you to leave by hitting back. Is this 1995? That shit ass game? lol

Console commands don't count as giving the user a choice, as 95% of gamers aren't going to know about them or ever use them.

I get the overall issue here, but fuck these people, you're on a pc, take advantage of that, it even helps you out in front office jobs... you get experience, it all relates to honing pc skills.

It's been released for a few days now. Review are quite bad, apparently the controls are terrible (especially edge detection), so is the AI.

Shame, second disappointment after Thief. We really ought not to get high expectations from those marketing racket.

Steam User Rating:
73% Thief
84% Styx early returns.

Currently I have Steam at 80% as the cut off line, don't figure in published report, don't know who to trust. Quite a few like it though, biggest issue sounds like QTE fighting.

Less than 1/2? That could be a good thing. I need a list of games to buy and a list of games I have to fire up. Done and Done. The rest isn't all that needed.

Some of us actually socialize with others and make use of the extensive community features. There's also the bevy of other tools Steam provides. It is remarkably lightweight for everything it implements.

I don't think Origin is bad just because its EA but it is not in the same universe as Steam, they have a long way to go. The feature I make the most use out of is the ability to run Origin games without Origin itself, irony right there.

Fine use steam for your social or skype or tumblr or facepunch or AoL (lol). Everything has to have a social thing? I say no, others may not.

And to the feature of running without Origin is a good one for sure. The point here is EA is saving 30% (valve's cut) by doing this. That is a big dot deal to a company and why it exists, well imo.
