Wow, just wow. Only 1 of those games contain the online DRM. Maybe you nubs should actually click the link before you QQ.
ROFL! Never let facts get in the way of nerd rage on Blues.

News Comments > 70% of Activision Profits Non-Console

I astounds me that people are willing to listen to BK considering the amount of bullshit spin that comes out his mouth. Then I realize, he's not talking to us; he's talking to shareholders and finance people who know and care nothing about games.

I do wonder if these shenanigans piss off the Blizzard execs.

News Comments > Kotick: Audience "Clamoring" for Subscription CoD

I'm sorry. I still can't understand why anyone is clamouring to pay for what they get for free. Unless they have some serious value add in there, this is just simply insane .... kind of like trying to charge a subscription for a 3D Diablo clone.

News Comments > Stolen Gaming Credentials
30. Re: Stolen Gaming Credentials May 27, 2010, 18:03 Talisorn
 
I get between 5 and 10 phishing emails for WoW and NCSoft on a DAILY basis. Whenever I could be bothered to do a "whois" on the actual URL, it invariably points back to China.

Funny thing is, I haven't had these accounts active for quite a while. And they haven't been compromised. I am getting sick of it though and am even beginning to consider closing my email account which I've had for over 20 years.

All the more reason to have hardware authenticators on gaming accounts. It's probably one of the best things Blizzard did for account security.

On a side note, I read on Massively that Ubisoft have five new MMO's in production. They are also requiring you to be connected to their servers while playing. OUTRAGEOUS!!!!1!

The only people who see profit from used games are the retailer.

Regardless, I've yet to see a major retailer that will sell used PC games. They're all console games.

What about Derek Smart threads?
Nothing gets more posts than game piracy and console vs PC sales (and Derek Smart threads)on Bluesnews.
Of course. Most here have are impassioned opinions on the subject and either side believe they are right.

And this story is surprising .... why? There's a log of money involved. Of course there's going to be corruption. The two go hand in hand. They really have to sting the guys behind it and not just the players who took part in it.

I really need a keyboard and mouse. Consoles are too limited in usability.
+1. When they get a decent controller for a console, I'll play games on it.

And all those people with comments like "Good Riddance", what happens when all development goes to the consoles? Your going to be bitching that nothing ever gets released on the PC. Piracy does have an impact on companies, regardless of what you may have convinced yourself. You only have yourselves to blame when there's nothing left to play .. and your taking the honest people with you.

They're on a crappy network and are generally less capable than Android phones, and overpriced to boot.
You folks in the US have got a bad deal there. We just pay for the hardware or can get it through any Telco over here on a contract ... and reasonably priced too.

Planning to pick up the HTC Evo
Nice choice.

I agree Cutter.

While I think the iPhone is a good and very usable device (probably the most usable Smartphone/PDA I've had), it could be so much more if Jobs just took his head out his arse and gave up his petty battles with Google and Adobe. As soon as I get out of my mobile phone contract, I'm giving an Android phone some serious consideration.

The only patch I am interested in is the one which removes the f'ing DRM. Then and only then, will I buy it.
Your loss. It's a great game.

Many MMOs have promised dynamic events before and none have delivered (.. anyone remeber Horizon's and it's dynamic Blight Incursions).

I want to see this is action first.

If they want to own the data, just give it to them. Extract the records onto a thumb drive and hand it to them. It's nothing without the Engine ... and THAT'S owned by Linden.

The Matrix has them. Do they think that's air their breathing in there?

I'm giving this another try. I was bitterly disappointed with at release with each new patch seemed to make things worse ... though I did always say that the game would be good after 6-12 months.

It's have enough time in the oven. Lets see what the chef has cooked up.

Well it look very similar .. but i haven't played WoW for years so i can't really say whether its really identical...
It's not. From what I've seen so far, skills are learned over time (like EVE Online), except you can queue the learning process.

It's about as similar to WoW as every other MMORPG out there ... in other words, it's not.

Hmm. I'm having a hard time lately trying to decide who I hate the most. Activision for Bob Kotick, Ubisoft for their rancid DRM and disrespect for PC gamers, Microsoft for doing everything in their power to marginalize PC gaming, EA, for just being themselves... It's a game of leapfrog!
You left out Apple and Job's cries of "Oh ... but Flash is sooo proprietary!" Oh ... please. Pot. Meet Kettle?
