News Comments > Steam, Origin DDoSed?

I suppose the moon landing was filmed in a studio and Al Qaeda didn't fly planes into the WTC.

And JFK was killed by one guy in that Texas book depository.

Oh, wait...

This is where I'm at. Do I wait until I can get the whole package on the cheap or just grab the vanilla game now. Thing for me is, will I ever play the DLC. Hearthfire looks like something I'd use on my play through but the other two would probably never get used. This is what happened to me with FNV, waited until I got the whole thing on the cheap, sunk over a hundred hours into the vanilla game then stopped playing. Same with Oblivion and Fallout 3, by the time I was done with the vanilla games I was done... though TBH I did start one of the DLCs for FNV and it sucked.

Yeah I'd just grab vanilla mate. It's still plenty huge. To get far enough into the game that you're actually playing DLC content takes a good while, and most who would spend that much time playing the game will already have it.

As a disclaimer, however, if the world really sucks you in, you might come to regret not having also gotten the DLC. I picked up vanilla maybe 6 months ago, and poured 50 hours into the game (which is a lot, for me).

I haven't played in a couple of months now though, but I'll be honest; I do have Dragonborn on my wishlist. Just in case it ever drops enough to be too tempting to pass up.

I signed up for the beta long ago, and have been in it for several weeks now. Super fun.

I did, too.

Bought a few packs, set up a few decks, and then it got boring. Fast.

It's not a bad game, but something tells me there are more of me around than there are of you

So I get this email from Steam...

Hey, one of the items on your wishlist is on sale. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is 25% off, down to $67.47 USD.

Wow, am I a lucky fuck or what? I like how it came out like 4 years ago, and its regular price is still $90 on Steam for Aussies.

At this stage, I'm guessing 6% of you are thinking "get the fuck out of Australia, dude", while the other 94% are going "why is mw2 even on your wishlist?!"

Actually I was thinking "Jeez, paying more for games is a small price to pay for getting to live in an awesome place like Australia!"

Actually, yeah mate, there's a lot of truth to that one, even if do we have awful fucking politicians over here. Yeah yeah, I know - who doesn't, right?

Gates wasn't exactly doing all that well himself anyway though, was he?

They need someone with a vision or something.

And... yes, their update says they still intend on providing Steam keys to existing owners.

Cool, looking forward to giving it another whirl in a few days

Need to be able to choose from half a dozen classes or something.

Watched a few videos, and considering it's got really rather good lighting effects, for a game that costs $10 there's quite a lack of depth.

Next time, they should probably focus their efforts on what really counts.

I imagine there are a great many fellow Australians in the same boat as I, who thought that, once we got that R18 rating, we'd be fine; that they'd just let it all through.

It makes me laugh that they don't think I'd be able to play that mission without going, "Oooh, drugs r' good!"

Pity there ain't a mission they could add where the player would come out thinking, "Oooh, taxes r' good!" They'd fucking be all over that shit in this country.

Why wouldn't anyone intending on overclocking just put together an Ivy Bridge system? Isn't it easier and faster than overclocking on Haswell tech? Unless I'm mistaken, their focus with Haswell was to create a good chip for mobile users, ensuring that it doesn't draw as much power while running relatively idle.

I upgraded to Hawell recently from the old Q6600 chip. So yeah, it'd been a while. Had no intention of OC'ing anyway, so I chose the standard 4770, and partnered it with a board based on the H87 chipset. I'll be set for a while now

If I had a dollar for every person who actually thought the idea of this falling skyscraper was cool but hasn't said anything because fuck it, it's Call of Duty, I wonder how much shorter my working day tomorrow would be.

I'll admit that Ghosts has been a bit of a joke thus far what with all the talk about the dog companion and fish that move out of the way when you swim by, but hey, I won't deny that these dynamic map event things sound like a lot of fun.

I like how it's perfectly fine to other franchises like the Battlefield one to walk down the same path, but when it comes to attributing blame, Cod is always the recipient.

Cost issues aside, having watched some gameplay vids on Youtube, this is shaping up to be a rather good-looking game. The maps look a bit too open though, from what I've seen, there needs to be more choke-points, etc.

I could see me dropping $60 to play in beta from September and onwards, assuming it continues to improve, of course.

Could someone help me. I keep trying to view the Titanfall announce trailer, but for some reason, I keep getting misdirected to what looks like gameplay footage from Battlefield 2142.

Yeah, I upgraded from a 460 to a 670 last summer, but didn't really see a huge improvement in graphics.

Yeah I'll be honest, I still don't really have a reason to upgrade from my 460. I think this is the furthest I've ever been from what's the best that's currently available, but there's still nothing I want to play that I can't.

No, not first world problems! Indicative of a prevailing attitude that says 'I don't give a shit about anything or anyone else and everything is all about me, me, me! That's why this fucking planet and in everything on it are doomed!

You're spot on mate, but human beings can't fight what they are. Same shit, different century. If it makes you feel better though, we won't be around for too much longer.

In an era where it doesn't feel like there's really much in the way of innovation, it's easy to focus the blame on the best-selling franchise up at the top.

For my part, it's the feature list that has had me coming back, and recent Modern Warfare and Black Ops titles have not disappointed. Extensive single-player campaign? Done. Fully-featured multiplayer? Done. Prefer co-op? Done. Finished with the campaign but would still prefer to play alone? Done. Want a reasonably well-polished game? Done. More than its fair share of patches? Done.

Some would have you believe I'm part of the problem, as I've read here in this thread, so to you clowns pointing the fingers; fellas, if I can get those kinds of features somewhere else, I'm all ears.

I'm just glad God offers eternal life freely so that we can be assured that despite horrible tragedies, things will be good in the end.

And if only desperately wanting something to be true made it so.

But what do you think still needs fixing in SC1? There are plenty of mods and maps and the base game runs very well, no anecdotal problems on a few systems, in fact the opposite!

When playing with AIs, a fix for the sim speed slowing to a crawl on the larger maps would have been nice. They introduced that tasty bug with FA and never did get around to fixing it. Broke the game for me, pretty much, and judging by the size of the thread over at the official forums, several others too.

The level of support that SC2 received absolutely dwarfed that of the original, so it's something that's definitely determined by who is the game's publisher.
