"Unnecessarily" if you didn't want to play it any more, I guess. The servers were shut down.
Exactly. It was Steamworks or nothing for CoH1. For CoH2 I'm not sure they really have a choice either; what else would you even use these days? Origin?

Anyhow, my patch-weary bones are glad that this is being launched on a service that will take care of all of this automatically. The heavy DLC is odd, but since it's skins I can't really complain.

Alright -- someone give me the short version explanation of what these "Steam Trading Cards" are. I have not been paying attention.

You get cards for playing certain games (games added all the time). Sets of cards unlock small frilly stuff (backgrounds for your profile, etc) and give you XP. XP is what determines your steam level. Cards can be traded or sold.

Not a big deal, but if you have the collector twitch, it's something else to do.

That sounds like it's more targeted towards the OCD crowd than the collector crowd...

I kept getting this and that other PS3 game Ellen actually worked on crossed...up until it was released, I thought The Last Of Us was the Ellen Page game...

Okay, good, so it wasn't just me that kept thinking that. I didn't realize that wasn't her game, and that Beyond Two Souls was.

Then why are they doing a freemium model?
It's not freemium. It's a standard buy-to-play game; nothing is free.

Can Microsoft’s exFAT file system bridge the gap between OSes?
It works on the OSes that matter (Win and Mac). So yes.

This game looks terrible....another cheap license cash in. Why do people keep buying this crap?
Really? I think it looks fun, though I'm definitely waiting to see some reviews.

Zero dollar is a good price, but that's way too much effort to make it zero dollars.

Agreed. It's more effort than I'd care to go through just to get a free copy of A:CM.

Yeah this is business as usual for Assassin's Creed on the PC platform.
For an AC game a few weeks as opposed to a few months is doing well, all things considered.

I didn't think it came off as whiny. I thought it came off as anger. Obviously Hines knows why the game isn't up to standard and he's pissed about it but for whatever reason can't or won't say exactly why right now.
Yeah, I guess you're right; that is more angry than it is whiny. Still, it's surprisingly unhinged for a PR statement.

The existence of Half-Life 3 isn't news; the only question is, which decade will it be released?
I think you mean millennium, since we technically had to wait a millennium for HL2.

That's just petty. Whoever did that should be ashamed of themselves.


They earned it. All they had to do was make the camera optional. Even include it in the box if they wanted, to avoid fragmenting the userbase. But they decided to be jackasses, and basically tell the customer "this is how it's going to be".

Fuck them. That's not how it's going to be.
The proper response to "they're not making the product I want" is to damage someone's property? Do you realize how absurd that is?


What property? The ad? A piece of cardboard or rubber banner?
Yes, that piece of cardboard that Microsoft paid for. Vandalizing things is a crappy thing to do, whether it's a piece of cardboard or a marble wall.

As for CDProject, I mean, give the guys a break. What are they going to do, NOT release on one of the two next major consoles?
Indeed. It's not a great outcome. But for a major (and expensive to produce) RPG like that, it's simply not financially viable not to go fully cross-platform. No matter how crazy MS is, XB1 is going to sell, and CDProjekt needs to be able to reach those consumers to move enough copies of their game.

I still feel really bad for this guy. He's the most unlucky independent developer I know of. Aside from this happening to him, this is the same guy who had both Radical Fishing AND Luftrausers stolen from him by two different studios, not to mention the near-ripoff of Super Crate Box, and published before he could finish the projects himself.
Even if he made some poor decisions, the universe is out to get this guy.
Yikes! Poor guy.
