There are so many tech people, wouldn't someone have noticed if cell phones/devices were transmitting while off and cache disabled? Also wouldn't it cause "problems" with airlines, as the airlines always claimed the reason they needed to be turned off during takeoff/landing? Not that I ever believed anything an airline says.

Thanks MoonSpook, good link! Now I wonder if Amazon ever puts the dlc on sale. Guess I'll find out during the Summer Sale.

Thanks Creston, I only care about ME2, Lair of the Shadow Broker is top of my list.

Think we get Zaeed with the Deluxe Edition. The others are Kasumi, Arrival, Overlord and Firewalker, all would be nice but seems too high priced for a 4 year old game.

Anyone know if dlc for ME2 ever gets discounted? From what I've seen and read, it's only for sale from the Bioware/ea site, which I rarely if ever visit. Think the bigger story based content is about 800 points, with smaller about 500. Iirc, the majority of dlc is about $20 to $25, total at regular price.

Steam login working for anyone else, I've tried for the last 15 minutes? I don't see any problem on my end (even tried rebooting), no problem hitting webpages anywhere, even Steam. The problem just seems to be logging in online, to play/buy some games.

Edit: Working again, seems it was a Steam software update happening right now.

Developers can now run their own discount sales on Steam.

Oh, wow - hadn't heard this. That's pretty damn cool!

It is! Wondering how we will know about individual sales, only by checking the listing in the Specials tab everyday?

You here the one about the Level Bosses?
Each level boss can only be completed by killing them with a rocket launcher. They plan to fix this with a patch in about 6 months. Paperbag Backstab

Wow, that seems kinda... harsh? Guys make a very succesful game, and then because Ken Levine wants to make a smaller studio, everyone else gets sacked?

Thanks, Ken Levine?

Thought the same. Wasn't there another way he could have passed the baton on to someone else and kept the studio together? If it's only 15 people he's moving on with it seems like an odd decision to axe the rest. Maybe there's more to it? Then again, maybe not.
I see what you guys are saying but Levin is one of the best writers atm.

Could anyone really write a Bioshock story but Levin and would 2K really want to take that kind of chance, Bioshock 2 was critically panned? What if Levine is taking to heart all the criticism people have mentioned, hell even in these forums. Just taking a break, but unable to sustain another 100 person, 200 million dollar game development, atm. Should he just throw something together, then take the heat from, all the forum members complaining how the new game, just isn't any good.

Of course it's sad anyone losing their job but on the flip side those employees got to work on a very financially successful game, not everyone gets to put that on their resume.

How about Ken Levine leaves to do whatever he wants to do, and they keep the rest of the guys employed? I know, I know, CRAY CRAY, but think about it?

If Larry Page gets bored tomorrow and wants to focus on producing high-quality Sumatran bukkake videos, does he just close down Google and fire everyone?

It seems to me that Ken Levine is saying that without him, Irrational has no chance to do anything anyway, so he might as well fire everyone...
He probably tried to leave, but 2k gave him free reign to do what he wants, if he stays. His post almost says as much.

2k decides what games get funded and if Levine is burnt, needing a recharge, who the hell is going to lead a 100 person team on some game which will be another billion dollar hit? Oh and wth will that game be?

2k is Irrational, not Levine (Lest you forgot Irrational was sold to 2k).

I'm glad BloodLust : Shadowhunter got approved!

Anyone know wth is going on with Frayed Knights? I thought it got approved before the 2013 holidays.

I couldn't believe Nexus started supporting mods for it, great news indeed. At least now, modders can fix the weak and broken parts on the PC version.

I haven't play anything but Coop for at least the last decade, so it doesn't/won't ever effect me. However permanently banning someone, who bought the game during alpha code without a single warning, is an extremely bad idea.

It's what they did with Ridtide (i.e. making it much less moddable) causing me hesitation.

They are intentionally not showing gameplay videos, since everyone complains about them.

The background on this trailer is pretty crappy. If some guard killed at the magnitude where 100s of bodies pile up every week, there would be no one left alive to work jobs, keeping the city running.

Also everyone is saying this is going to F2P, I'm sure it will. But what I don't get is people saying that it would be BETTER as a F2P, but how?

Why would I play an Elder Scrolls game where better gear or something is locked behind microtransactions? I'm sick of the F2P model in games, I really am, I hope it dies out completely in the game industry. That's why I enjoy games like Eve, I pay montly for 1 or 2 months than stop subscription when I don't want to play.
Cause right now as it stands, it's a disaster waiting to happen. Making it F2P such as The Secret World, i.e. buy, then cash shop is for fluff (custom clothes (one of the best things about TSW), pets and mounts), not to win.
