Just over 1 year and they release the feature they should have never even contemplated not having.

I wouldn't be surprised if they threw in some artificial restrictions in offline mode. 'You can't build trains cause um, they need the power of the internet to run O_O'

Isn't this standard for EA? After any game releases they layoff a good portion of the staff, because god forbid they pay their people a few weeks till they start the next project.

Well typical for the gaming industry in general.

Damn, buddy... It's just a game, or if you want to get technical about it, just a job. No need to kill yourself over it...

Talk about having your priorities bass-ackward. I would have tracked down the manager scumbag and killed him instead.

There article does mention there were other personal problems, though nothing specific. Probably felt everything in his life had gone to shit, and felt this was his best option.

How can cheating can be fun for anyone?
The cheater just cheats himself into thinking he is a good player but he actually sucks balls, while ruining the game for others.
Does ruining the game for others brings joy and happiness to the cheater?

Isn't it boring to just mow down players one after another without actually playing the game properly? The cheater just ruin the whole fun of the game for himself. No suspense, no adrenalin rush, no satisfaction. I don't get it.


I can understand people doing it as novelty, but if that were the case you'd rarely see it happen. Maybe they're just terrible human-beings that can only get their jollies ruining everyone else fun, and/or so completely insecure they have to be the best through any-means possible. There are a lot of fucked up people in the world, whose behavior I find completely alien to my own perceptions.

Just over $8 a month, that's still not bad if you do a lot of ordering with them.

'Apple's iOS 7.1 throws up in-app purchase warnings'

Throws up in app purchase? Couldn't they have used a better choice of words? Or maybe its an editorial commentary on apple products.

Yeah, geez. My quad core is 3.2ghz and I'm only 4 gigs of ram. time for the mobo/ram/cpu upgrade I suppose.

I'm still running a Core 2 E8400. This has probably been the longest I've gone without a major upgrade or rebuild; still running Vista64 too. Probably because I have had no hardware issues, and software/OS problems have been few, far between and easily fixed. I've really not had any problem with the games I play either. Maybe turning down a few options, but nothing overly noticeable. And yes I realize I have just cursed myself by saying that . I've been seeing a lot of min-specs my setup would have some trouble meeting so I imagine I'll be building a new box within the year. Still working on my steam backlog though, so maybe longer than that hehe.

That's total bullshit, winamp decodes AAC, FLAC and MP3 at less than 1% on one core, and that's on an old midrange cpu ( core i5 750 ) at a throttled down speed ( around 1.4ghz ).

And yes I know thats only "1 channel", but still.

So why couldn't their game do the same?

You can't handle the truth son! They don't want you to know it's not the audio, but you are exposing them! Keep up the fight! If the people find out it's something other than audio, and we know their lies, down with Respawn!


I'm sure there's a 28GB NSA.bat file hiding in there somewhere.

given HBO Go on Roku will work if you have Comcast broadband -- but get HBO from another pay TV provider like Dish.

I just don't even....
I'm becoming increasingly convinced that this is not parody, but what actually happens: http://youtu.be/utGqpT-riZc

There is the beginnings of a huge water problem in the USA, but domestic use is a tiny slice of the pie. Most Americans are inculcated with the water conservation basics as children, so not a lot of savings to be made with efforts there. Thermoelectric generation and farming irrigation are by far the largest users of water, so efficiencies there could pay huge dividends. Still, I am annoyed at laws like forcing people to maintain a lawn in low-water regions of the country. And the fact that a lot of irrigation water comes from the ever diminshing Ogallala Aquifer is disconcerting to say the least, especially with the flood/drought cycle exacerbated by global warming.

Grass lawns are nice, but a bitch to maintain in areas prone to drought and long very hot summers. Its one of those ideas we've imported from England that isn't very practical in large parts of our country.

All I know is that Titanfall runs much better on my PC than a friends new xbox. I am not impressed one bit with the new consoles, last years tech at best. Cloud servers are just another word for a not very good console.

I did not think that Dark Souls II was that good. The first one was better which does not say much for the developer.

I think they just attach the word 'Cloud' to anything having to do with the internet anymore because it sounds so new age and cool without actually having to define exactly what's going on. Its a marketing dream, using one word to describe any large variety of setups without actually having to commit or admit to what's provided.

This isn't just limited to comcast. I've noticed on my PS4's various streaming services and store there are options to purchase individual shows for streaming proclaiming $2.99. One might initially assume this is for a season, a reasonable price, but it becomes apparent its per show. A really awful deal when you consider services like Netflix and Hulu are $8 a month.

True, but $2.99 is the price on iTunes, isn't it? And given that a song is $0.99, the price seems in line with that. You're paying for early access actually, instead of waiting for the show to come to Netflix or Amazon or Bluray.

That's why I was saying it isn't just limited to Comcast. Though as someone pointed out this particular series is extra bad since you can pay much less for a month subscription to Netflix and get the same show and a whole lot more. A lot of the stuff I was looking at didn't seem early access either. I was looking at rentals and only old/unheard of movies or shows were around the $.99 mark. I'm probably just cheap , but nothing it fell into my cost/benefit acceptability range. Plus since I've not used those services before I don't know how reliable they are.

I got it for PC last night, definitely fun. Might be a little weak on content for 60$ tho.

For me $60 is too much for a game that's light on content and will undoubtedly turn into a paid DLC fest. Maybe come summer they'll have it on sale for $40. Seems fun though, just not $60 of fun.

I'm surprised PC is only 6% of South Park sales!! Wow.. But PC sales have a much longer tail than console, yet I could see justifying a delayed PC release to better focus on the console release, if it works that way at Obsidian. *shrug*

Maybe we PC gamers have enough to play for now and are waiting for the %50 sale a few months from now. I know I am.


We need to get off our asses and play those backlogged games we all have so the new PC release market can flourish like the console market. Or maybe that should be sit on our asses...
