News Comments > PC Dawnguard Info "This Week"
9. Re: PC Dawnguard Info "This Week" Jul 30, 2012, 15:41 Tumbler
 
Seems like the Steamworks content available is far more interesting than this expansion.

Where are my fucking dragon mounts Bethesda? Why did you make something with Vampires? Who gives a shit about Vampires?! This game is about DRAGONS. Give us some fucking dragons to play with!!!

And flying mounts! I want to play joust in the sky with my flying horse and a Dragon! And I want to ride dragons where I straff downs and drown them in fire! I want to hear stories in the nearby town about how my actions! Did you hear about the dragon? It killed everyone in Greenwood! Or if someone saw you riding the dragon then maybe the whole town would run from you screaming, "It's the dragon rider!!!" And guards would attack you for your crimes!

This shit writes itself Bethesda, why on earth did you make some stupid expansions about vampires?!

Green Man Gaming is selling Borderlands 2 for $40 if you use this code: PARTP-ALCNO-TIESU

Steam activated code to be delivered. When gods and kings came out I bought it via GMG and the code was available on release day.

Ironically all these dumb things are why I don't preorder games anymore. If the content of the game is going to be all cut up then I'll wait till its a fraction of the new price.

There's really nothing Blizzard can do to stop this method of hacking since it falls on the user for using the same information and not using an authenticator.

That is nonsense. They can establish 2 step authentication and log computer access. A user account and password will suffice once you've logged in with a certain computer. If they see a login from a computer they havent seen before then two step auth. If the person has your email as well then u are kind of f-d. This is why users need to establish different login details on that email.

Steam does this, when you login from somewhere they don't recognize they won't do anything until they verify you can get into the email associated with the account.

That is what blizzard should be doing. Using the authenticator is a lazy solution and an indication that the company doesn't want to deal with the additional security measures that are becoming standard on everything else.

We're blizzard, we can have shit security if we want.

Everyone who has ever had their account stolen fell for a phishing scam!

In fairness my username / password was possibly found on another website and used at blizzard but that info would not get them into my email...so you would think that before they let you change the email login info for the battle.net account they would do a confirmation/authentication email BEFORE they change the account info. I call it "2 step authenticaion". I'm gonna patent it cause obviously no one has thought of this...

Valve will probably want to know about this as well, oh wait...they've been doing it for a while now...oooo well that is embarassing Blizzard.

That's why you should pay Blizzard for the privilege of owning one of their authenticator tokens. It only costs like 6 bucks so, really, it's almost like they're doing you a favor.

I did this with Swtor and in hind site it's a huge hassle. You need that stupid code to login to everything. Website, forums, account info, game, everything. Far as I can tell there is no easy way to remove it so I never bothered but to.

Nevermind that is costs $8 or something like that. If you need an authenticator just to play a game then you've failed as a developer.

Wooo Hooo! I got hacked! I haven't logged in weeks (maybe a month?) and got an email last night from blizzard that my account info was being changed. I checked to make sure this wasn't a fake email and noticed I could not longer log into Battle.net.

Started the account recovery process and now I'm locked out and I've been warned that if this happens 2 more time they won't unlock it and I'll be forever banned!

Something I'm noticing now is that they don't have any additional security questions to make this kind of thing harder. The only option they offer for additional security is connected to a phone or an app. (app = phone in my mind) Long story short if I don't want to trust them with my phone info then security is limited at best.

Heh, no fucking way I'm putting your app on my phone or giving you the number Blizzard. I did add additional security to my email though, hopefully google can handle that...since they all but "own" my phone anyway...

As someone who purchased this on XBLA I'd like to have access to play it on windows as well. Hopefully they can someway to get a person like me access without having to pay for the game again in full.

If you look at the gaming website's content in general as lobbyists for the AAA gaming industry this makes a bit more sense.

I'm seeing some evil billionaire sitting at a little table sipping tea, "Saying, oh no they can't do that." (When kickstarter first gets rolling)

Then "They can't do that!" (as more projects get funded)

"NO NO NO, they can't do that!!" (Kickstarter catches fire and projects start showing up from every direction)

"NOOOOO, YOU CAN'T DO THAT!!!! STOPPP!!!! (today)

It just seems like a desperate attempt to keep people away, "They're all going to scam you!!!" as if people still believe the AAA gaming industry is trust worthy to listen to.

News Comments > Morning Consolidation
3. Re: Morning Consolidation Jul 20, 2012, 12:26 Tumbler
 
Releasing a nex gen console will only accelerate the downturn in console gaming purchases. Some franchises will do fine (CoD) but the changes that would come with nex gen consoles are almost certain to be extremely anti consumer no matter what direction they take. Without a killer app for the Wii U I'd expect that to flounder like the 3ds and vita have. Nintendo could still come up with something but at this point the Wii was already showing Wii Sports (I believe) and that really is the main reason why that system did so well.

Still can't understand why my little 10 year old niece loves playing tennis on that. Even one player where you hit it off the wall, loves it. Heck keeping the system backwards compatible so that someone can simply play a prettier looking Wii sports might be enough to keep that system on life support...if not selling well.

I would not be surprised if MS (and Sony) deliberately set the cert process timeline longer just to give an easy excuse to devs and pubs because the public obviously hates this day one dlc practice.

Same excuse that ME3 devs used. It was after we finished the game, it doesn't count cause we made it after. (audio, video, art files found all over the place proving they'd worked on this heavily before cert started)

Keep it up AAA gaming industry! You're customers love you! You can do no wrong!

It's very confusing how someone can be making a Shadowrun RPG and someone else is making a Shadowrun MMO...

I'll stick with the RPG.

Free to try sounds good to me. We'll have to see how much they hold players back who don't pay. I enjoy paying for something I like a lot more than paying to try. (current status quo is pay $60 to try and hope you feel good about it)

The sheer GALL of IGN to question Metacritic is fucking astounding. The existence of metacritic isn't ruining the game industry, IGN, it's fucking shitholes like your own websites that will sell review scores for more advertising dollars.

Creston

This. Had to LOL just reading the question posed by IGN. It's like...fuck it, not even worth coming up with an Analogy.

Sites like IGN are marketing, no shades of gray, they're just simply part of marketing a game.

Having not watched the videos or really seen anything related the MoH I had a bad feeling about things when that bit about BF4 beta being attached to this games $70 version.

Really shitty way to treat your customers. Would make perfect sense to give BF4 access to the people buying the DLC pass/pack thing. Attaching to this other game at the $70 price point is a terrible way to reward people who are already paying a premium for your content.

(I'm guessing many people already have strike at karkland, no discount for them, same price as people who don't on premium pass. I think?)
