Had to grab The Witcher 3 at $30... just finished Fallout 4 (~75 hrs) so another epic adventure is ready to roll.

Witcher 3 is REALLY long in a good way. IIRC I have around 220 hours. Not one iota of that time was not fun. It's an amazing experience that, in my humble opinion, is better than Fallout 4.

P.S. I picked up American Truck Simulator. I'm fulfilling one of my childhood dreams of being a big-rig American truck driver. Beep beep. Race

If you want to look for someone who appears to be "waging a little one man crusade" against "unfavorable" comments then look to theyarecomingforyou.

I don't see theyarecoming outside of Star Citizen threads stumping for the game or something. I also don't see him bullying anyone, what a complete abuse of that word. He engages on that topic because it interests him and limits it to those topics. He's really one sided about it...but not any more than you. I don't really care if you clash with him or which one of you got personal at some point in the past, like many readers here I don't really care about Star Citizen at all and just want the SC diarrhea kept to those threads. Its not like there has been a lack of them.

I find it interesting that you have the exact opposite perspective. theyarecoming doesn't want ANYTHING negative spoken about Star Citizen because he's financially backing it and fears project collapse. You don't want to hear ANYTHING about it period because you hate it. "You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't" about sums it up. The long and short is this. Where and when I feel it is appropriate I will continue to use Star Citizen and Chris Roberts for the topic at hand. You're more than welcome to skip my comments if the mere mention of Star Citizen makes you throw up a little.

How about you just stop derailing other threads that are totally unrelated to that game? You want to wage a little one man crusade then whatever, if you really nothing better to do with your time you have my pity but at least spare the rest of us when we're trying to read about OTHER FUCKING GAMES.

The original comment WAS on point and specifically related to Peter Molyneux's reputation in the industry. My point, since it is so clearly lost, was this: even with his damaged rep I would still trust Peter with my money before I would EVER give Chris another dime. theyarecomingforyou made it an "issue" beyond the scope of the discussion. If you want to look for someone who appears to be "waging a little one man crusade" against "unfavorable" comments then look to theyarecomingforyou.

I'm not really surprised by this. I've had the displeasure of encountering people like theyarecomingforyou on the RSI forums and Star Citizen Subreddit. It appears they are on a mission to go around the Internet and bully others into silence for daring to post anything "disparaging" against Cloud Imperium Games, Star Citizen, or Chris Roberts. See, it doesn't work here on Blues News because unlike other sites this site is a bastion of free expression FOR and AGAINST things. Kudos to Stephen Heaslip for keeping it that way.

That's not a deal, that's just you moaning about SC at every opportunity for the next couple of years. At least if you're going to moan about it keep it to the relevant topics. Moaning about SC in a Godus Wars topics is just desperate and pathetic.

Are you foaming at the mouth? Are you angry? Good because you have no power here. Deal with it.

TRUST PETER WITH YOUR MONEY!

I would trust Peter with my money before I would trust Chris Roberts. At least Peter stayed in the gaming industry and didn't head off to the UK equivalent of Hollywood to produce shitty movies for seven years.

Patience is that thing that allows you to wait and see. We'll see what happens with SC soon enough, meanwhile we already saw what happened with Godus... which is failed project by any definition.

Patience allowed me to put my money in around January 2013 and WAIT until July 2015. Not releasing what was pitched, forced a refund.

Fucking hell mate, it's time to end your one man crusade against Star Citizen. Let go of all that resentment and do something positive with your life. Seriously.

You stated here that Derek Smart's blog and Twitter account would close. That was 3 1/2 months ago, what happened?

You ended that post by saying "Think I'm lieing? I am not your internet mommy so dig up the information yourself." Ironically, I found this post by digging up information myself as to why you'd post such an apparently ridiculous statement as this and gee, now I do think you're "lieing".

I guess for Zandog "lieing" is the act of making stuff up and then passing it off as a forecast of things to come in the same vein that "truthiness" is truth simply because it feels true.

lieing = truthiness forecasting
lying = telling untruths

News Comments > Need for Speed Most Wanted Free on Origin
4. Re: Need for Speed Most Wanted Free on Origin Feb 2, 2016, 21:58 Kxmode
 
I'm probably going to get a lack of flake for this but EA providing free games is pretty cool. So far EA has given away Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Jade Empire: Special Edition and now NFS Most Wanted. I think that's pretty nice of them. By the way it's a $20 game. Might as well claim it.

P.S. I don't like having so many different distribution platforms (GOG Galaxy, Steam, Origin, UPlay), but as platforms go Origin is fine. I've haven't experienced any issues with it.

Indeed. Those fucking things should be illegal to begin with. How they don't qualify as a form of discrimination boggles the mind.

According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act they are. A company who violates the FDCPA can immediately be sued by you.

They can try but they won't get very fair for a number of reasons.

1. I never subscribed with a credit card. I used Paypal. The money comes directly out of my checking account so they get paid immediately.

2. I have no debt with their service. My account was current and the subscription was terminated before the monthly renewal.

3. Zygor Guides, like any other at-will service, can be cancelled for any reason and without having to provide one. Forcing me to give a reason borders on shady business practices.

But let's say for the sake of argument they pursue this. Purposely filing false information to mess up my credit score would result in a violation of several sections of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. I would be well within my right to seek legal council and sue them, and I would win. So would the effort be worth the $7 they lost? No.

There are times when I absolutely love Paypal. Like the one time I got scammed on Etsy. Paypal hounded the Seller until they sent me a refund.

A new nod towards Paypal's awesomeness came from a subscription to Zygor guides. The process of subscribing is VERY easy, but when I wanted to cancel they force me through their hoops.

"To cancel your subscription you need just to let us know. The fastest way is to use our online chat support, but you can also fill the following form with a reason of your cancellation. It will help us to provide a better service in the future."

I'm not playing their game. So I logged into Paypal and terminated the Zygor Guide preapproved payment. This morning I was greeted with an Zygor email telling me "Your payment for Zygor Elite was declined!" I sent a reply informing them, "I tried to cancel my subscription from your website and you wanted me to jump through hoops by speaking to a customer service person. So I terminated the subscription from Paypal. You really need to make the process of subscribing and unsubscribing easy. This tactic gives me pause as to whether I want to resub to your service when Legion comes out."

TL;DR any online company who makes the process of unsubscribing difficult and is stupid enough to use Paypal doesn't deserve to be in business.

Excuse me? I WAS a backer to the tune of $930! And my doubts about the project and Christ Roberts happened LONG BEFORE Derek's blog appeared. We are free thinkers here on BluesNews because on the cult-like Star Citizen forum and subreddit free thinking gets you banned or marginalized by zealots.

Wasn't that technically a cutscene though? Techniques you'd normally apply to films make perfect sense to use there, to me.

And I don't have a problem with that, but in this particular scene it was almost like the "cameraman" was filming from a boat on tempestuous waters.
