Xcom collection for $10 at Amazon, it includes the new game Enemy Unknown. Solo they're still selling it for $20.

Read a rumor that BF4 will be $25 on Thursday at Amazon.

Sure, when dealing with people on an individual basis the only proper way to treat them is as individuals. Anything else is fucking retarded. But I have to agree with Cutter here as well, genders DO differ in significant biological and psychological ways and there is a a place for generalization at times.

Can't argue with that. It's true.

It's also interesting though, because we're not entirely certain about where the delineation lines are ... I found this article a while back pretty interesting: Ars Technica

It's attempting to summarize the current state of scientific research into gender variance in a number of different sectors (and also pointing out some research that is heavily contextual and therefore not easily interpreted).

I wish the discourse was less about blaming and more about trying to figure out all the shit we don't really know.

I can agree with that, but... the more you complicate male and female interactions, the less both parties have an interest in any interaction whatsoever. Maybe a side-effect of this absurd "work, work, work" mentality humanity has succumbed. Most probably don't want to have social interactions that are also defacto work in their complexity.

Well, when you create a system that screams "sexual harrassment!" at every glance, flirt, off color comment, or actual innocent but perceived to be off color/rude/mean/creepy/jerkish/crude/omgwtfbbq thats just hurtful! comment you might be cutting off inter-gender/sex/cis-whatever interactions overall.

When the old lines about not fishing off the company pier, diping one's pen in company ink or not shitting where you eat become woefully inadequate warnings you might have a problem with your society.

But I'm just some cis-gendered evil white male. One whose own mother lost a part time job because she walked in on her (married) female boss (city manager) screwing the male city sewer manager (ironyx10) on the manager's desk. Hostile work environment ensued lol, lead to harrassment/firing, then city paying out cash to mum in a lawsuit settlement. Oh, and city manager kept her job for several years after the fact.

But you know, cheer on those wise female CEO overlords 20 years down the road. In a system where women are always right and men always wrong because you know, sexism.

Its like dealing with the attention whores in a MMO game guild who think that I'm unduly biased as raid/guild leader because I treat the women who actually play the game seriously better than the hoes who think because they showed up and/or flirted with a bunch of horny desperate nerds that they should get the latest loot. Yes, holding your hand through the whole raid and relying on others to carry you endears you to me. No, you're either there because you're some good player's sweetie or you're there because you "buff" up morale.

I took a break two months ago from WoW, haven't been that motivated to go back even though I miss friends and I've wanted to kill Gorrosh in the new raid. This expansion actually looks interesting compared to MoP.

For Ghosts? 37 GB on the PC. Uncompressed textures FTW!

Apparently it runs like a three-legged whore on stilts too.

Lolz, so basically 3x the size of BlackOps2. Brilliant.

Remember the good 'ole days where you could run your own dedicated server, be in control or part of a gaming clan, and have fun competing in ladders?

Lies, damned lies! This utopia you speak of never existed. Ahh, the fun of running a custom TF server and being the LPB on it.

No franchise is bulletproof, remember when Guitar Hero was a billion dollar industry unto itself? The bottom fell out on that frightfully quick. They need to an entirely new engine and some new ideas but that would interfere with the yearly release schedule sooo yeah, probably not going to happen.

Ahh, guitar hero.

Their mistake was giving it any credence or attention in the first place IMO. All of the stupid shit they did afterward was just giving those people a major vehicle for their complaints, whether its in PAs "style" or not.

The lesson I've learned over the last ten years or so on issues like this is never apologize.

This is just the new cause of the week for the "causeheads".

They need to make something like Battletech 3025 again. Pick a side to fight for and each battle has game world consequences. I think I played the beta for it for almost a year before they finally cancelled the game.

Call me when Valve can patch their old games without knocking it out completely just for some linux beta.

HL:Source tried to patch itself this weekend and just froze on the download. Restarts or deleting the game did nothing. Steam just says there are no servers available etc. etc..

Malachii wrote on Sep 6, 2013, 10:55:
Disagree.
I still like the auction house. Especially for alt leveling. It's great to be able to snag a lv60 weapon/armor with a reduced lv requirement of 14 to help with the last levels.

I know most older timers hated the auction house, but don't use it. Pretty simple. And no, I do not believe drops were "tuned" for AH.(prove me wrong.. PROOF , not conjecture or twisting words) We can get into the specifics of the item system being busted, but we've done that a million times already. Point is, the chances of an item dropping that beats what you have by the time you are para 100 is probably worse than lottery odds...So the AH fills this void nicely as well.
D2 players would buy/sell/trade all the time at this point, still not sure why the disdain? cause of the RMAH? If it was just gold would you all be LESS butthurt?

To clarify, I am done with D3 at this point in time having sucked a ton of time out of it but eagerly await the expansion next year. Will I pick up on console? Nah. Been there done that.


Proof? Seriously? It became obvious once you got past level 15-20 that you would have to end up on the AH unless you really did want a ironman loot type challenge as there was rarely good gear drops, unless you got something for an alt.

PropheT wrote on Aug 29, 2013, 18:54:
My problem with the game was never the game systems, it was the context you do it in. The story and everything you interact with is bad enough that I don't care why I'm playing, so I never got invested in it and was bored. My first playthrough was fun because we did it 4-player co-op right on through, but nobody wanted to play it again after that.

I don't think that's even something that can really be fixed with an expansion, not that it seems like they even recognize it as being a problem in the first place.

It is definately a factor. I think for many it is just not a big one compared to loot, drm, RMAH/GAH etc.. I didn't pay to much attention to the storyline other than, "this seems pretty lame". I liked the game's atmosphere/overall look. For me TL2 has the far better loot/skill system but the world design just turned me off most of the time.

My worst buy and biggest regret of 2012.

Can't say more than whats already been said. I made the mistake of reading a few supporter comments on sites that carried this news. The blind love is always amazing. You're peeing in their cornflakes just pointing out the obvious. Error 37 never happened apparently.

As always, the D3 story in 3 minutes:

Sure.. if unending grinds for resist gear and soul-wrenchingly tedious attunement quests (over and over and over for new members) and having 15 useless people out of 40 were your idea of fun.

Sure. How're those rose-colored glasses fitting?

/backs away slowly
Farming resist gear war hard? I guess you didn't have any good guild alliances didja? And if anything, the attunement quests were useful for ensuring that those "15 people" weren't useless.

So...I guess that would be a guild problem wouldn't it? We had an exceptionally low overturn rate, because we had a main raiding section and a backup section for those who couldn't raid full time. Worked out well.

Worked out well, until your guild imploded over drama or enough people quit. After awhle Kara attunments and SSC stuff turned me off off raiding. They brought back the attunement requirement for the TOES raid this xpac. It was old school blizz, because the required kill of the bug queen in Heart of Fear, which is the worst instance of the xpac so far. So bad that the Garalon fight is repeatedly beaten by a bug (pun intended) instead of fought normally and Blizz has done nothing about it. Its funny because new folks to HoF have balked at trying it for fear of being banned. These days no one bothers because of LFR and enough people can get into TOES who want to.

Your guild example from what I saw in game was rare. My guild has survived six years by being casual with some serious raiders off and on. Yet, the main reason it has survived has been the leadership and overall quality of the members who wanted to make things work.
