I just watched the Battlechess footage and I'm not surprised that it wasn't funded.

Crotch-grabbing knight vs. Queen doing the robot didn't come close to selling it for me.

I don't know what they're talking about with the 95% piracy rate. They must be mashing all the world game piracy statistics together instead of focusing on having different products and different price points for different markets.

Ubisoft doesn't understand economics or statistics.

I didn't get the game right away and now it'll probably be a long time before I bother. The gameplay just looks stale.

Personally, if you held out this long...just wait for the next ARPG that grabs your attention. Just my opinion of course, but I feel like I only bought the game because as strongly as I felt about things like the RMAH and the always-online requirement, my love for Diablo and my curiosity about where they would take the story kept me believing that Blizzard would push out another game that despite its "on paper" downsides was "in reality" incredibly fun to play.

I was wrong and I hate that I gave them the 60 dollars that basically says "I am the customer and I will pay you to fuck me and one of my favorite franchises all to hell". I mean, the story isn't even good, let alone the gameplay. If I could have made myself wait this long, I think I would probably just satisfy my ARPG itch with Path of Exile until Grim Dawn and Torchlight 2 hit....skipping D3 all together. Obviously, just an opinion...but man I would love to be able to take that purchase back.


I'm past the "I want it because it's Diablo 3" stage.

I think I'll just sit skip it for now and finish other games I already own.

Nobody really seems to be all that satisfied with the game and sixty bucks is sixty bucks.

So if it helps you can say you convinced me to wait (maybe forever) and cut your sixty bucks to thirty.

I didn't even realize that they were going to do Fallout 4. I mean, after New Vegas, I kind of figured they'd follow that naming convention. Fallout: Bean Town. Fallout: New New York. Fallout: We're milking this shit dry!

I don't know why, but I'm not really too excited by this. Hopefully they update the engine in a major way. I'd love to see a full remake of the first one.

FO:NV was sort of a spin-off so I'm not surprised they went back to numbered releases.

If you want a redo of Fallout 1 then you should probably look at Wasteland 2 when it comes out.

I'd imagine the FO4 engine would be similar to Skyrim's.

Eh.. I was hoping FO4 would go west.

Also this rumor sounds shaky.

I'd still like to see what they can do with the new engine. I was always mad they didn't do a DLC to cover the android base they hinted at in FO3 so if they actually do cover that then I guess Boston is okay.


I'd like to see them go outside the US.

I guess it could be done. The US's anti-communist propaganda and 1950's era jingoism is baked into the setting though. It would feel like a different series..

I'm playing with these mods now.

The open freeside and open strip require a fairly beefy PC - especially if you have any texture mods also installed.

If you haven't played this game you ought to try it with all the DLCs and bugfix mods.

The Old World Blues DLC was the best of the bunch if you can only get one.

Retail sales for electronics are probably contracting across the board as people go online for cheaper goods. It's killing Best Buy.

Apple products are probably about the same price no matter where you get them, but there are plenty of cheaper substitutes and I doubt most (regular) people care that much about the Apple brand anymore since it is ubiquitous now anyway. Beyond that, other manufacturers have caught up to what Apple did and a few of them are doing it (arguably) better.

Iwhatever went from something new and cutting edge to being just another slab of glass with a touchscreen. Everybody has that. The other features and variations are all minor. It's not that different anymore.

On the surface, the Parasite expects the doctor to heal them for free, the farmer to feed them out of charity. How little they differ from the pervert who prowls the streets, looking for a victim he can ravish for his grotesque amusement.

Andrew Ryan disapproves of Blizzard

It's probably meant to get really old subscribers to come back - or maybe tempt people who don't play into trying it again.

Stardock sure does come across some weird problems. It is hard for me to feel too sorry for them though. This sort of thing is very preventable and any competent IT group would have had that data back online in a day.

Smells like bad management to me.

The game sucked too.

There was a 4 team mod for the original TF that worked out okay. It had red, blue, green, and yellow I think.

I still miss spy gas and some of the spammier grenade weapons.

I must be crazy because in elementary school I loved the pizza. The rectangles with the little cubes of pepperoni on it? Fantastic!

Yeah, I liked it too. And it came out in those funky trapezoid slices.

Sausage pizza was the bomb though.

Five bucks for a program that keeps you from having to click on "game mode" or "disable".

I like the way you could glue ship parts together in Galciv 2 to make your own. I didn't like the way they handled combat though. I wanted the option of moving my own ships around sometimes, not have it predetermined by algorithms every time.
