News Comments > World of Warcraft Battle.net Deadline
11. Re: World of Warcraft Battle.net Deadline Nov 11, 2009, 14:24 raVen
 
People on the WoW forums also report that they got "hacked" by converting to Battle.Net.

Beware of blizzard.net it is not battle.net and they will probably steal your info.

News Comments > StarCraft II Beta Delayed Until Next Year

If 3.3 comes out in nov/dec I don't think they'd let us sit for 12 months without a content patch.

Blues have come out and said 3.3 is the last content patch before Cataclysm. (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=20464486377&postId=203051101516&sid=1#1)

I'm guessing this means that Cataclysm is coming out first.

Is that all you run? And you call yourself a PC gamer...
Uh, I think that was his point.

So what they really are saying is that they had such little faith in their game they gave it away.

Having little faith in the market buyers is different than having little faith in their game.

I suggest people targeting women consumers look at WiiFit marketing.

I'm not going to comment on how it looks. Just look at the sales.

Everyone gets penguins as long as you login within the required time (If you have already converted your account you'll get one.) Confirmed from the WoW login screen.

I don't think it has much truth to it, and that site really made me feel like I was at a malware site. On that basis alone I wish to discredit that site.

No other evidence to me has pointed to them closing up shop on 3D card chipsets in the near future: NVIDIA still has the lions share of the market1, They advertise in games way more than ATi (The way it's meant to be played), Most companies I have worked for get mostly NVIDIA workstation cards as they tend to work with Maya better (Or so the IT guys say)

I'm just saying from my point of view I think it is a very sky is falling statement coming from that other site. The news about the Intel/NVIDIA chipset stuff has been around for a long time. NVIDIA completely dropping out of the 3D card market is extremely unlikely and from where I stand ludicrous to even consider a possibility.

I'll change my mind if NVIDIA makes a press release about them leaving the GPU market.

I'm almost certain that other 'news' about nvidia stopping the latest video cards was inferred from this news about the Motherboard Chipsets.
Not to mention that other site was hunting for ad revenue.

Seriously? Look at the forums on that site. Only back a few months. All the links point to that site. No other evidence has been around to say any of this is remotely true.

Someone is either trying to sway people to ATi, or they are just trying to drive people to read articles so they get more ad money.

I use ATi cards, and NV cards. I am not biased.

News Comments > On Sale

Defense Grid is awesome! But, Direct2Drive is shit. I tried to buy a few games over the past week, and have had nothing but problems with them.

First they wouldn't take my credit cards,
Then they limit you to 3 purchases a day? (wtf)

I finally finished downloading the 7.1GB Riddick to find out it's corrupt and fails CRC checks.
I downloaded it again with their downloader, and it was still corrupt.
their Customer Support is only online and hasn't responded to any of my tickets.

My only recourse is to reverse the charges on my credit card.
I wont ever use their service again, and since I can't use the games I bought they have until tomorrow afternoon before I reverse charges.
Seriously shitty service, I'd stay far away if I were you.

I bought Defense Grid on steam.

Wow, Chill out. Gamers enjoy games. I enjoy them all console or PC, doesn't matter. What console landed on your house, and killed your favorite animal? Without Halos there isn't a point about taking risks to find a new Halo. Catch-22

Can we just skip past this horrible time when writers are trying to get their groove back after the strike? Please?!

Make up your own ideas, stop making shitty video game movies.
