More "Game Jam" recycling. There's nothing here that wasn't part of the freeform developer creations from December.

However, I'm all for a small "horse armor" DLC if it means the last of the XBOX 360-exclusive content.

What I take from these comments from Carmack:
"Doom 4 will support our new VR headset."
"PC support is TBD."

$20 is way too much for this. If Skyrim cost $60 and offered 200+ hours of gameplay, $20 DLC should offer at least 60 hours of gameplay. Throw in the fact that the bulk of code and assets are recycled from Skyrim and it's an even worse deal. I'll wait until this is $5.

Same here. $20 is too much for what amounts to last year's "game jam" hobbled together into a DLC. Winter/Holiday sale, maybe.

Also, what's with the vague leadup? From "we have not announced" to "here you go, PC users." Is it really necessary to be this vague?

Translation: ZOMG Chill the fuck out peeps were working on the PC port right now....LOL

More like "we have to talk to legal to make sure we're allowed to announce/release this for other platforms without getting sued by Microsoft."

Okay then the easy questions is... "What is Bethesda saying about a PC release for Dawnguard?"

Nothing.

Huh?

Its not on the ps3 yet or the pc because its an xbox timed exlusive....nothing to clear up.

StingingVelvet wrote on Jul 29, 2012, 03:57:
30 days of exclusivity doesn't mean the DLC launched on PC on day 31.

You're both missing the point. I'm referring to this quote:

"We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise I'd tell you," Bethesda vice president of marketing Pete Hines wrote.

According to this, we (as yet) have no reason to expect a PC/PS3 release of Dawnguard. Ever. That is what should be cleared up.

It's all conjecture, but the best reason for the delay I've seen suggested is that they're having problems porting it to the PS3. From what I gather, the 1.6 update still hasn't made it to the PS3 and 1.7 is now in beta. Why this should hold up the PC version, I don't know. And I can't get behind the silent treatment from Bethesda. Where things stand now, there's no guarantee that Dawnguard (or the next DLC, for that matter) is expected on the PC. That is something Bethesda needs to clear up.

Certainly no offense meant to Blue for posting the story, but I stopped reading at "giving his outlook on such litigation." I could care less what the defendant opines about the litigation he is facing, particularly when his strategy is outlined as "throw piles of money at making sure they don't get a cent." Personally, I'm more interested in whether this case has merit, and this story doesn't offer any illumination on that question.

"by or through making, using, offering for sale, selling and/or importing Android based applications for use on cellular phones and/or tablet devices that require communication with a server to perform a license check to prevent the unauthorized use of said application"

That seemed pretty clear to me...

My point was that making that the point of interest of this story, rather than Notch's opinions on the lawsuit, would have made more sense.

I much rather see a Titan Quest 2 than a Torchlight 2. TL1 was pretty lame, why everyone's so excited for a sequel i'll never know.

You should take a look at http://www.grimdawn.com then. The developers of Titan Quest are working on a new game. Unfortunately, it's the same story as Torchlight 2: slow going.

I'm all for them taking their time to polish the game...but I pre-purchased the game when they advertised that it will be out this Summer. If it's released later, I simply won't have time to play it. I'm happy they're taking the time to do it right, but I feel a little screwed over at the same time. It's not enough money to call for a refund, but some consideration for those the have already paid for the game would be nice.

I can't think of a more suitable hole for Blizzard to disappear into than Microsoft Games. So many far more deserving developers have met their fates there, it would be fitting for this trash receptacle to be used to dispose of what Blizzard has become.

Steve Balmer is late to the party. Microsoft was out-innovated by Apple a long time ago.

The problem with these guys goes all the way back to Bill Gates, who said that the tablet wasn't a product Microsoft should make. Or a smartphone.

Nobody at Blizzards knows how to make a H&S worthy of the fame Blizz has in this genre. The people mainly responsible for D2 left long ago.

<ahem> And they're making Torchlight II, which will be out in a matter of weeks. They seem much more deserving of my money than the makers of this crap.

Daiblo III endgame woes...

Seems to me that uninstalling the game from your system is the best "endgame," assuming you bought the thing in the first place.

Once again torn. Who do I hate more? Blizzard or China....tough one.

Of course, there is the fact that no Asian country could make a decent game to save their lives(which i dont understand since they supposed to be all Mr. computer)....so there is that. Then again BLizz is in empire strikes back mode lately...hmmm.

Japan has consumed all of Asia's game making talent.

Reading the article it doesn't seem like 'China' is promoting it, but that one of the possible distributors is. The reason the game hasn't released in China yet is because of China's over the top censorship among other things. So I highly doubt they'd promote a 'crack' that circumvents their own rules.

So where is Japan hiding them? In a cave somewhere?

Yeah, Japan. They've been irrelevant for like 15 years. No one gives a flying fuck about FFXXXIIIIV or w/e other cliched crap they just can't let go of.


You may not like them, bug JRPGs sell just fine in Japan. Japanese corporations can make a lot more money exporting cars and electronics than than they can with video games.
