Who would be stupid enough to invest in Facebook? In 5 years it'll be like Myspace is now - sooner if they make enough unpopular changes.

I guess some people are hoping the bubble will get bigger after the IPO? Good luck with that...

I didn't even know B&N sold games.

Oh yeah, EA sucks.

All the data collection in the world won't tell Notch that I quit playing because he couldn't make a decent survival mode.

That game had so much potential too. It just sort of got stuck at potential and now it's milling around trying to figure out what happened.

Yeah, I know. A lot of people like to play virtual Legos. That's fine. I did for a while. I just expected more.

All I ever wanted out of THQ was a Russian faction for Company of Heroes.

After they couldn't muster that I lost interest.

Something about Apple's profits doubling on top of all those horrible stories coming out of their Chinese factory doesn't make me want to buy Apple.

I don't understand how game stats tell you what's fun about a game. All it tells you is what players end up doing the most. If you have a bad game design that makes players grind then all you'll see is grinding.

It doesn't mean players like it...

Anyway, these things are okay if they're opt-in. Otherwise I think they're creepy.

I view Origin as a janky store at a crappy mall. I could buy stuff from there, but why would I?

Nice. I think that may be the most performance improvement I've ever seen from a game patch.

Seriously.

That's my other beef with this.

For $15 I want to know what DLC I'm getting. I don't want a chance at getting something good. I want something good guaranteed. If I want to buy something with a chance of finding something good I'll play MTG.

For $75 I want a high quality resin sculpt, not GI Joe quality action figures. Even at $15 a piece they are not worth it to me.

I think I'll just wait on ME3. The more I hear about it the more it sounds like it can wait until the ultra-bundle pack, preferably on sale.

I own the original on 3.5" diskette. I will try this remake.

It's too bad these sort of click adventures went away. I can sort of see why they needed a rest though.

I sort of remember this game being talked about a long time ago. There were pretty screenshots and then it kind of disappeared off my radar for whatever reason. Now I don't remember why I'm supposed to care or be excited by it.

That Land Rover Lightweight Air-Portable rig looks like what I'd like to have for my next car, but gas mileage sounds like a downer.

I've never driven stick either so there's another wrinkle.

The drivers in my town are crap. I've been hit 2 or 3 times now. Anytime I think about getting a newer car I remember that some turd driver is going to turn it into a junker anyway.

I'm just barely out of the starting town, and looking forward to a dusty adventure. Any recommendations on where to go or who to kill?

You can try to make a break for New Vegas if you feel lucky. It's better to follow the road the first time through though. If you see cazadores you went the wrong way. LOL.

The DLC were pretty good.

I think the fan favorite was probably Old World Blues.

I liked them all but I got them for cheap on a Steam sale. Maybe people who paid full price have other opinions.

Valve nurtures companies. EA kills them. Supporting Steam != supporting Origin. It's not about the DRM. It's about EA being a crap company not worthy of my money.

If those are really the 8 hot features of Windows 8 then I'll give it a definite pass.

I can wait until they work it out and get it on Steam. If it takes a year, that's fine. If it never happens, whatever.

You should be okay with Ultima 7. You can see where a lot of today's crafting mechanics in RPGs got started. Look up Exult on your favorite search engine for a better experience with it.
