2K and Turtle Cock can suck it with these prices. $15 for a new monster? Hahahaha. They lost me with a full price of $70 CDN. This just makes it far worse.

Can anyone give me a hint regarding the DRM they're gonna use on GTA5, except for Steam of course.

I'm really looking forward to playing this monster

Social Club. That's it.

I'm getting a little worried that they haven't absolutely, 100% confirmed the 27th, nor put it up on Steam yet...

It's on Steam

https://steamdb.info/app/271590/

Just not visible to the public via store search but it is on steam actual too

http://store.steampowered.com/app/271590/

There are also people testing the game on PC via Steam right now ,)

its been on steam for months now

Indeed. And it is also searchable. It may not show up in the short list as you type, but type Grand Theft and hit Enter. It's there and has been for months.

Preorder is speculated for next week. As Max Payne 3 went on preorder 2 weeks before release.

Releasing the same day as GTA V PC? Bad idea. I will get this down the road on sale, if for no other reason than to play as the zombie.

Live action video...Zombies that can climb buildings (or anything for that matter), jump across window outcrops? Uhhm, no. The parkour might have been interesting if they didn't cut constantly to a new location making it look like he was chaining moves together...when he wasn't.

I wish them luck but they would have been better off making L4D3.

Loved both L4Ds, but you don't feel the game was pretty much played out? What does it need? New maps & weapons? Better graphics?

Turtle Rock doesn't own L4D anymore. This is a different crew anyways.

L4D3 is rumoured to be in development at Valve. I'll grab it at launch without batting an eye. I loved and played both L4D's (mostly in Versus) for hundreds of hours.

$70 CDN? Not a fat fucking chance in hell is that happening.

$70 for an original IP from a new developer? Uhhm no.

Yes it's Turtle Rock, but it's not the old Turtle Rock and is different people. The ones that either didn't want to move to Seattle and work for Valve or that Valve didn't want to keep.

Of course this is just on top the bad word of mouth coming from the beta. Plus I've watched gameplay vids...it looks boring.

Depth on the other hand looks far more entertaining to me but I still haven't pulled the trigger at $16. But that's mostly because GTA V is around the corner and nothing else matters!!!

"small Steam-capable computers"

The idea of building a high end gaming PC around the Steam OS / Linux hybrid seems like a waste of money.

Maybe they can cut it down to just a game streaming device that's ultra affordable.

Yeah, I just don't see how much of a market there is for high-end living room gaming PCs. Even the home theater PC market is limited to enthusiasts at this point, most of whom probably already have their own custom-built HTPC. Without some substantial value-add I'm not too hopeful for this segment.

You do realize that just because they say "living room" doesn't mean you actually have to use it in the living room.

Hell, my full sized Desktop technically is a living room PC already as that is where my desk is and I have it connected to the TV for when I do want to use it that way. People need to get it out of their head that PC's belong in specific locations or need to be built a certain way to accommodate a specific area.

The main thing about the "Steam Machines" is the free OS. No Windows license to deal with. In the short term, I'm not interested. In the long term, Steam OS may interest me if they can get it more feature complete and I wouldn't feel like I have to dual boot with Windows...at which point I'd just use Windows as I have no problem with the way Steam client currently works.

I want a controller not a transformer. It does look pretty cool though. I'd still never pay $300 for a controller though. If I was gonna do that I would have bought a decent flight stick setup years ago.

SHE/HER

The professor is a woman. It strikes me as interesting that the automatic assumption I have seen here and on other pages linking to the story, commenters appeared to be commenting without having read more than the headline and make an automatic assumption that someone with the title of "professor" would by default be male...

It's a fair assumption because most of them are. Just like most chefs are men. There's noting sexist in it as it's a safe assumption and no one is saying women are incapable of being professors so stick that SJW BS up your ass or go be offended with the rest of the clowns on a site like Polygon.


Way to miss the point Cutter. No surprise really. Maybe start reading articles before you post your usual bullshit.

Good for him. Doesn't change he did something illegal. Two wrongs don't make a right. Do I think it's ridiculous that people in any country that commit violent crimes get a lesser sentences than those that commit "digital crimes"? Absolutely.

It also doesn't change that other members of Anonymous have caused millions of dollars in damage to companies small and large around the world. They steal credit card information, people's private details and commit fraud with that information. This ruins innocent people's lives! They do stupid shit like DDoS attacks that disrupts millions of people lives, usually just as a cover while they are or already have broken in and stolen that information. Then they play the political game on social media to claim "it's for the greater good". Simply minded peons like you fall for it hook line and sinker. Why do they do it? For the LULZ.

So fuck them and fuck you.

Truth is some--I would say most--of what they do is very good.

LOL! You've got a tin foil hat too I suppose?

Stealing people's private information, selling it, exploiting it and doing it all over again with every company they can is not doing anyone a service except their own pockets. But I guess the "good" they supposedly do is just misunderstood by the rest of the world? They keep being arrested and jailed around the world, but I suppose this is just "the man" bringing the righteous saviors down?

Don't forget everyone, that it was totally "'North Korea'" behind those Sony hacks right. We should all goto war over that right now, all the proof I needed was for the US to tell me it was them and tell me they have proof, I don't need to know what that proof is.

Kosumo, what do you think the US or even Sony (Japanese company) has to gain by lying about who hacked Sony? You really think wannabe hackers in their moms basement gives a shit about the content and subject matter of The Interview to make terrorist threats and demand edits? It takes a special kind of lunacy to do go that far. North Korea has displayed plenty of that lunacy over the years.

If anything the US have avoided confrontation with North Korea. Mainly because nobody gives a shit because they don't need anything from them. North Korea act like idiots and won't even talk to anyone else, so the UN imposes sanctions on them and they continue to demonstrate that they aren't capable of moving on from the past quarrels. North Korea have been the aggressors towards the US (and other countries in the world). They even went as far as re-declaring war on South Korea in recent years.

How about those ridiculously campy anti-US propaganda videos that use fictional materials from American pop culture? When the Kim family grows up a little bit and pulls the pacifier out of Kim Jong Un's ass, then maybe they can join the rest of the world in corrupt business deals and greased palm politics.

They really shouldn't be using third party sites to release information when the first places people will be likely looking for this information are their official status pages.

Think about how that would work for a minute....figure it out yet? How would they post information on their official websites when THEIR FUCKING SITES ARE DOWN? /facepalm

For thousands of companies, communicating to their customers via Twitter or Facebook is the norm now because they can reach a wider audience via retweets and wall posts from those users. Where have you been for the last 5+ years?

The threats were made as much as a month ago and continued throughout the month. BBC has even apparently interviewed some of the assholes that did it. They did it because they can. Sony don't need to be forthcoming about anything other than what they have done. Services are down and they are working on it. In fact they can't be any more forthcoming than that, as standard procedure for any company worth their salt is to not elaborate on those details as
an investigation would be ongoing and likely the FBI and other agencies will be involved.

I wonder how MS and Sony are going to make this right for people. The outages kind of ruined the gift experience for people getting those systems or games. Its going to leave a bitter taste and possibly some screaming kids. Sigh, why do people get off on DDOS?

They don't owe anyone anything. Douchebags that think they are owed something obviously don't comprehend that there is only so much companies can do to defend against DDoS attacks. You want to point a finger? Point it at the low life little shits that deserve a severe beating for pressing a button and then act like they are doing the world of favor.


They need to be more forthcoming with what is going on. The networks are still down to the point where you can't even play the games properly. I am not expecting free DLC or a game out of this but I want to see an actual acknowledgement of the problems and how they plan to address it in the future. As of right it feels like they are burying their head in the sand and hoping the problems go away and frankly that is unacceptable.

I understand they are being DDOS'd but some responsibility has to fall on MS and Sony for not having a robust enough infrastructure to handle the Christmas pressure and DDOS'ing. They already went through this in August and they still learned nothing.

Not sure what you expect from them. They have communicated on Twitter. There are numerous reporting of this on the usual gaming sites. It's not a secret they are trying to keep from you.

So you know what they can do to defend against DDoS attacks? Sony, MS and a ton of other companies around the world would love to know what you apparently know and nobody else has figured out.

I'd prefer they actually used game design instead of social media bullshit (look at me I'm popular cus Facebook and Twitter says so) for people to earn keys in-game.

What an odd way to play Diablo. I beat the game once or twice then hung it up, might play again later.. but getting the best/best of gear? Have you gone... MAD?

That isn't an odd way to play, it's the proper way to play. It's extremely easy now to get geared up for Torment 6 (rank 25 GRifts). The story is meaningless. You don't play it for the story. You play it, a) because you like the gameplay and D3 is still the most solid of the available ARPG's, b) to get better gear and push higher Torments and Grifts.

I haven't been playing much lately. Too many changes coming for DH's for me to continue putting much effort in before the patch. I don't care about Seasons and have just worked on mostly my DH, but my Wiz and Monk both have decent sets/builds that allow me to do rank 30+ Grifts. All my other toons have some gear and can do varying levels of Torment 3+, this is with having barely played them.

(most remain unchanged anyway, not counting Ancient versions)

But they do count. Why worry about gear now when it will essentially be made obsolete with the ancient items in the patch? Unless of course you aren't well geared and you are still just trying to get to Torment 6.

Right now, getting higher Paragon is priority just as it always is before a major patch. Items will change. Builds will change. Paragon will not. Paragon is account wide. 1 toon isn't stronger...ALL of them are stronger. Some end game builds don't function properly unless you get the Paragon to boost the defining stats like Cooldown Reduction.


MoreLuckThanSkill wrote on Dec 26, 2014, 00:06:
the only holdup for me and the very few friends still playing the game occasionally, is Forgotten Souls.

If you don't have shortages with at the very least the blue materials, then you obviously aren't having to enchant very much. Which means you probably aren't pushing high GRifts, don't play other toons other than your main one, don't collect gear for other builds or you never crafting anything.

If you play much at all, you should have plenty of Forgotten Souls. See above. The most common bottleneck is the blue mats, as they aren't quite as readily available and some of recipes with up to around 75 of them in a shot.
