Aaand it's probably fake.

One thing I would like to know about GOG is who controls the price? I believe Steam lets publishers set prices now and control their own sales, but I get the feeling GOG is in control of the prices on their service. Back before the Fallout classics were removed, GOG gave them away for free, now these games are getting 80% off before being removed.

Steam now also allows you to selectively chose which DLC to use, under the DLC tab. About time!
That has been there for a long time now. I don't remember if there was an announcement or if it was buried in update notes, but I just noticed it one day when checking a game to see what DLC I was missing.

So with this I can install DirectX 9 and .net framework 10 times in a row automatically? Finally!
If I know I have it installed, I cancel that part and it never complains. What I hate is that each game has its own copy of these installers taking up space. I wish they would have a global redist directory that the games can call on when they want to install one.

Alamar wrote on Aug 27, 2014, 10:33:
Now you can not only buy, and not play games, you can install them and not play them!
I used to do that. When I bought a game, I would install it immediately whether I intended to play it right then or not. I haven't done that in a while though. Now I install games when I'm ready to play them. My Steam directory is 475GB, and that's after uninstalling some games I don't play anymore and playing some that I had installed and removing them.

Since the photographer said the monkey stole his camera and took the photos, I kind of agree with the decision, but what if the photographer had given the camera to the monkey to see what would happen? The monkey still would have taken the photos, but the photographer would have been the one to set the experiment in motion. What about nature photos that are taken with cameras set up in the wild with sensors triggers by passing animals? The animals are the ones to trigger the shutter, so does that mean they can't be copyrighted too?

I hope this case isn't misused as a president to claim other nature photographs belong in the public domain.

MythBusters Stars Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara Are Leaving the Show.

So, I see that Adam and Jamie will return to become the sole hosts, but I wonder why? Just lower ratings so the show is trying to save money?

Most likely. It's been going on for a dozen or so years, so it's bound to eventually lose its charm.

They have also been annoying the living fuck out of a large amount of people by putting fucking goddamned TWEETS in the middle of the fucking screen during their episodes, because obviously we ALL want to see what @DipShitRetard thinks about mythbusters.

It annoyed me enough to the point where I was already thinking about not watching it any longer, and this is just the icing on the cake. Kari, Tory and Grant are far more entertaining to watch than Adam and Jamie. Without them, the show is just... blegh.

In the beginning it was just Adam and Jamie. I think Kari appeared briefly in one episode where they made a mold of her ass. Then Kari, that other chick and Tori came on as the build team. I remember when they changed the format of the show where Kari, Grant and Tori started doing myths on their own people were bitching and wanting it to go back to just Jamie and Adam. Now their gone and people are bitching to keep them.

I'm betting they're going to try and do some kind of spin-off show, but seeing the quality of shows Discovery lately, it's going to be good and get canceled or suck.

I loved it the first one, but sadly I still need to finish it. Damn my OCD, I just couldn't move on until I found all the secrets and opened those iron doors. I got to one iron door I couldn't figure out and finally moved on thinking maybe the way of opening it was on the next level. I think I went down two more levels and never found anything. Then that nagging feeling of not opening that door got to me and I had to go back up. I finally quit out of frustration, and I refuse to use a damn walkthrough or guide.

In a typical zenimax greed move, they only put the dlc on sale for 50% off. This is the same way they try to force people to buy their games twice i.e. goty editions.

Why are they obligated to discount it more than 50%? How is a 50% off sale not generous on DLC?

They aren't, but in the past they always have. They always discount Fallout 3, Oblivion and Fallout New Vegas DLC the same as the GOTY. I know, but they're older games you were about to say. Fallout New Vegas DLC always received the same discount as the main game during sales. It wasn't until Skyrim that they starting not discounting the DLC.

I bought Dishonored on sale last summer or winter I think. I believe it was even called the complete edition or something similar. Then shortly after they announce another DLC. I was going to play it, but after the new DLC announcement, I put the game on my wait list. Each time it went on sale I passed on buying the DLC. I finally caved and bought the last DLC this past winter sale because I was wanting to play it. Then after buying it, I still haven't gotten around to playing it.

I still haven't bought Skyrim's DLC. I have one already, and even though it's cheaper to buy the GOTY than buy the two I'm missing, it just feels wrong having to re-buy stuff I already have. I'm in no hurry on that though. Although I've put more than 300 hours into Skyrim, I have yet to finish the main quest. A few times I've gotten the itch to play it. I'll update mods, goof around a bit to make sure it's all good, then never come back to it.

Don't late buyers always get more for less? That's the trade off of being a late buyer - you play it long after everyone else, and when the community is gone and people may no longer be talking about the game, but you get it cheaper.

No, they typically get the same for less. I supported the game at release by buying it (almost) full price with the season pass. The GOTY includes everything from the season pass and more.

I think I pre-ordered BL2 and the season pass for less from GMG. I'm a bit pissed that after pre-ordering BL2 and its season pass, late buyers paid less and got more from buying the GOTY. Although I think the only thing I'm missing from the GOTY is the that psycho character that I probably won't play and some cosmetic crap I don't care about, but one is an extra mission thing that I might pick up during the sale.

I'm going to pass on this pre-sequel until the money grab DLC is finished and pick up the complete edition on sale. Maybe by then I'll have gone back and finished BL2.

1. Metro Last Light Aug 19, 2014, 19:27 jimnms
 
Is this worth picking up with the redux coming out soon? It's something I'd only play once, like the original Metro 2033. I'm a bit worried about the redux version since there have been quite a few remakes (redux, enhanced, wtf ever they call them now) of games lately, and I think most of the once I've been interested in turned out to not be worth it. They may have put some nice new shiny bells and whistles on it, but they add bugs as well.

The only thing I use the Steam client for is to launch games. I browse the Steam store in my browser (Firefox with Enhanced Steam). I don't understand why the Steam client doesn't support tabs since it does in the browser in the in-game overlay. I would like to see improvements in the in-game overlay, like being able to add bookmarks, global and game specific.

A movie chronicling the excavation of one of the most disappointing moments in gaming I had experienced in my lifetime. There is absolutely nothing about the E.T. videogame that is either nostalgic or charming to me. It is definitely the worst game I have ever played, and the source of many WTF moments and frustration when I was a kid.

We had an Atari 2600 when I was a kid, and we also had the E.T. game. I don't remember it being that bad, I actually quite enjoyed it. It wasn't an easy game, and required you to read the manual to know what the symbols on the screen meant, which the locations were randomized each time you played. I actually beat the game. It took a while to do it and gave me quite a bit of satisfaction after having done so.

I think the fact that they found the old myth of cartridges being buried in the desert to be true is quite interesting, but it's interesting solely as a fact.

I thought that Atari had admitted a long time ago that it had buried the cartridges. The only mystery to the story was the actual location of the burial site.

I assume it is this Saitek keyboard, they are known for really bad USB programming. To the point where you have to disable certain USB drivers in the hardware settings to get games to function.....

I've never had a problem with mine. I'm currently using a Saitek Cyborg, and also have an Eclipse II on another computer. I also have an old Saitek Gamer's Keyboard (the one that had the programmable keypad) that I use when I need a keyboard on my keyboardless home server/dvr/htpc.

In Chattanooga, Tenn., subscribers of the local government's fiber optic Internet service can get symmetrical speeds of 1 Gbps... for $70 a month.

I want to move to Chattanooga now.

...and breaks everything else. I can't get any of my virtual hosts to start, and I'm not alone. There are a lot of angry people posting on their forums right now. They're blaming it on anti-virus software, but I call BS because disabling AV doesn't work and some people are getting the same error and say they're not using AV.
