Nice, looks like a fun game. Large battles could be sweet, assaulting a castle would be bloody marvelous. Realism is a tough problem though, depending on what they mean by that. Realism is two armies face to face ready to do battle and you dying in the first volley of arrows.

Graham Henderson, the head of the Music Canada (formerly the Canadian Recording Industry Association) wrote a blog post late last year lamenting musicians' earnings, a situation he blames on the Internet allowing a few to "amass staggering, unprecedented wealth" while musicians toil for tiny incomes.

Ya! Damn right! It's the recording industries job to amass staggering unprecedented wealth on the backs of musicians. Damn pirates are taking our jobs of ripping off musicians and we will not stand for it!

What a stupid article. Or more precisely, the point he is making is stupid. Hardcore fans want the game NOW and buy it on release at full price because the price is irrelevant. More casual or experimental players buy it on a sale. It really isn't rocket science. It certainly isn't "bad for gamers".

QFT, if anything steam sales have resurrected the PC market which is good for gamers and developers... and if anything is hurting day one purchases it's the developers who release unfinished broken shit and paid for reviewers out right lying about the product.

Bah! Ship now fix later was one of the things that turned me off of PC gaming in the first place... now it's standerd practice across all platforms, and of course software companies are never held accountable for shipping unfinished products.

And yet they know China is spying and stealing state and corporate secrets, not pegging their currency, etc. and its still business as usual with them. What a fucking joke.

Never bite the hand that feeds you. Corporations are earning billions because of China, therefore the government apparatus will not rock the boat with China. America doesn't do what's right, they only serve their own self interest.
Dude, its not the corporations that are the biggest issue. The issue is that if china merely stops buying our new debt every month (they don't even have to sell off any of their holdings), we'd be screwed.
And that's only a problem because of the massive deficits we've gotten so used to running.

Yes I understand that, I was just over simplifying it. You do know that China buys (parks) it's money in US treasury because the US consumer is a major driving factor in their economy, to the tune of over 300 billion a year... and that part of the US deficit is directly related to that huge import\export imbalance... and the whole thing is related directly to US corporations.

I'm no international economist, but this is the picture I put together based on what's been going on. China opened it's doors to outside investment. American corporations moved their production to China to increase their profit margins, increase, it was done not to make a profit but to make MORE profit. This took a job from an American and gave it to a Chinese person, this also took an American export and turned it into an American import. This puts a huge pressure on the American economy. Not only do you have less employment opportunities (less income taxes) and more unemployed people (more social programs) but you also have a huge trade deficit. So China is buying up American bonds to keep America going so Americans can buy their shit... all so people who do nothing but play with money can make a killing... and the kicker is they move their money offshore so they don't even have to pay their fair share. Corporate America is bankrupting the USA so people with money can make even more money and they own enough politicians to make sure it stays just as it is... although at this point I don't think it's even possible to reverse the trend... but hey maybe that VP will trickle down a fiver or two to the now, what is it, 40 or 50 million Americans who can't make ends meet... meh fucking pisses me off and then you see these same people who got fucked over actually defending these greedy ass mothe... bah humbug, I'm a gonna go play vids.

Yay all my dirty money is gone and I can play GTAO again... well except that I started playing Dragons Dogma and it's friken awesome! Seriously one of the best RPGs since, since, Baldurs Gate! So GTAO is gonna have to wait now cause I found a new addiction.

I love Dragon's Dogma, I really wish they had released a PC version of it.

Ya, it's a good game. Has a few problems, but finally an RPG that doesn't hold your hand. That first time I was underground and my lantern ran out of oil, and of course I wasn't carrying extra oil because what game makes you refill your lantern, plus dark is can't see shit dark. No leveling monsters, armor or weapons, and brilliant combat. Can't think of any game where I've had to run away so many times because I was so way out of my league with the monster I encountered... or even a game where I see the suns about to set and I'm looking for a safe place to ride out the night. Exploring is dangerous as hell, heh I'm LVL 35 right now and STILL need to be very cautious when outside. I'm going to rack up serious hours on this one. Gotta like PS+, didn't even know about this game but picked it up for free to give it a try.

Seems like a fail right out of the gate. I just can't see people lining up to buy an FPS alien game with no combat. Sure it worked great as a movie but as an interactive video game?

Even though I don't play the games, I really wish Sony/Microsoft/EA/Activision/Etc would release a solution to allow players to set up their own servers and continue playing. Then again, I'm sure the MP landscape for these games is desolate at best.

Console people always seem to be happy when games are released that have outside servers for multiplayer. Peeps seem to hate P2P multiplayer, but at least with P2P it will always work. I can't see closed systems like consoles allowing the general public to host dedicated servers.

Iím aware travelling by starcraft and seaship are two very different things.

Clearly you are not, otherwise you wouldn't be constantly comparing the two very very different experiences.

As long as its legal to hunt drones, I'm fine with PETA spying on people.

Heh spying is the activity of "secretly" observing. These drones toys are anything but stealthy, they are noisy as hell and will be heard a mile away. The only thing these toys will document is a bunch of pissed off hunters because the racket will drive off their prey. If PETA really wanted to do anything they would have people on the ground with cameras following hunters, that would be spying. But of course I doubt any of PETAs people drones are capable of doing so.
