The movement control is especially responsive and well implemented.
That is nice. A gamepad movement which doesnt feel sluggish, crappy and slow. What an achievement to gaming history! We've gone full circle and are now standing at exactly that point ten years ago before devs were forced to make only console games for the dumb masses.

If the USA bankrupts itself, it because we're paying for everybody else's military or social services infrastructure.
What?

Anonymous attacks on Whitehouse.gov? That's smart!
Sadly they only attack the website, not the real building.

If they would do that, the USA would start a war on nearly everyone, bancrupting itself in the process finally for good and the rest of the world can go on.

I never understood the F2P model for MMOs.
It's easy. Lure the player into spending much, MUCH more money in the games item shop, than he is willing to pay for a subscription fee.

eunichron wrote on Jan 18, 2012, 03:43:
Until someone thinks of a better model for MMOs, one that is profitable and doesn't give players 1/4 of the experience, "F2P" in this genre will always be synonymous with failure.
There a quite a few F2P-But-P2W-MMOs which make a good fortune. This business model may be a long-term failure for the stupid and naive gamer, but its a proven and sucessful business scheme.

No PC demo? Big shock. This is no non-news now its not worth reporting.
PC demos are being pirated too much, so major publishers will not release them anymore. Damn pirates! ;-P

Really lookin forward to this one! Hope it gets a steam release...
I wouldn't mind, if it get's not ONLY on Steam

An entry in a Humble Bundle someday would be nice. Not because i'm a cheap bastard (i normaly pay my traditional 13.37 Ä), but because i get all games without further need of a functioning account system beyond my personal control.

They've already made insinuations that they're going to leave the PC industry
They didn't. Ubisoft has the highest percentage of PC-only titles of all major publishers. They make good money on these franchises (HoMM, Settlers, Anno), production has already started for Settlers 8.

All this bullshit about THE GREAT THREAT named piracy and their DRM scheme to counter that made-up threat was and is aimed at the investors after Ubisoft had some rough quarters two or three years ago.

My guess is EA got greedy and figured they can make more money with Origin.
EA wants to control the way people play their games to monetize the whole gaming experience. They cannot do that with Steam.

Well this is going to give people who pirate another reason to rationalize their piracy.
No, this benefits only people who want to justify their actions. The "standard" downloader just downloads because he or she wants to.

Higher income will solve piracy exactly as much as clean tap water eradicated the business of selling bottled water with inferior quality....
The trick here is ... do not think that higher income will "solve" piracy. It doesnt make piracy go away. Higher income leads only to more potential customers. Make them an attractive offer and MORE people will buy your products because more people can afford to buy them.

It's not that they don't care, it's that they don't want to say anything that could possibly lead to a lawsuit.
How does "We are sorry, but we have to let go some folks. We thank them for their hard work and wish them all the best!" lead to a lawsuit?

This bullshit speak is targeted at the investors. Make them believe that everything is under control, that the company is on track and YES, WE ARE TOTALLY FINE!!!! DONT PULL YOUR INVESTMENT!!!!

SOPA is a complete clusterfuck. It seeks to give power to those that will abuse it and will have no effect upon piracy.
Yes, SOPA is a complete clusterfuck, but ... if you want to "fight" a problem, first make sure that IT IS a problem.

Is it the casual, non-commercial motivated content piracy?
Is it the usual commercial content piracy in countries with a low per capita income?

The first cannot be undone, you have to live with it. If you want to make money with digital goods, you better learn to let go after you release this content. The easy-to-copy nature of digital information cannot be separated from digital nature of digital information. If you dont like this, change your business model, sell physical objects like apples or fridges.

The latter ... easy solution. Raise the per capita income and these people will gladly start to buy more and more content from you, the official distributor. Or lower the prices.

What we got was a beautiful tech demo.
Which would be awesome in the days of Quake and Unreal, but nowadays texture sharpness and detail has evolved and increased tenfold. Rage looks sometimes like a fifteen year old game for the Diamond Monster 3D.

No. Because there is no actual problem. Only a percieved problem.

"If they do nothing, they are essentially ceding a good portion of their sales to pirates who have no intention of ever paying them a dime."

There is no proof that DRM increases sales, there is no proof that the lack of DRM decreases sales. For DECADES, since the early days of tapes and video cassettes the fear of loosing sales is based on assumptions, not actual, proven facts.

Do we know for certain that Rage tanked sales-wise?
http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales-data/25458/rage/

Ten weeks after release, 1.15 mio. 360, 0.8 mio. PS3, 0.2 mio PC (only retail, no Steam and other digital numbers), perhaps 3 Mio. units all together?

Not a failure, but nothing to write home about for a multiplattform release either. I guess Beth was expecting MUCH more.

You are all forgetting one important thing, there are more people unemployed now and that sucks.
These people are not unemployed. They are given the chance to get more lucrative und fulfilling jobs, because at id Software they care SO MUCH for their employees that these people are set free that they can pursue higher goals.

We love you, we really do!!!

That's pretty much my solution nowadays.
Heh. Mine too
I used to buy CEs on a regular basis (i still adore this mighty and heavy black brick named "Warcraft 3 CE"), but lost interest after digital items became more and more the standard ingredient of a CE. An ingredient i can torrent for free a few days later after the release. How "special" is that shit?

I'm honestly getting tired of the fact that collector's editions for every game now always involve putting statues in the box. No matter how much I'd like the other stuff given in various games CEs, I just don't want the junk cluttering up my house.
Simple solution. Do not buy it.

I prefer this stuff over any of these useless digital "extra items", which are anything but special (a few days after the game release anyone can download them) and they cannot be owned (!), espcially when they are "collectors items" in an MMO, connected to an account.
