What a clusterfuck EA made of this game. Offline mode is a good start but doesn't really fix the game being designed around smaller city sizes due to underpinning online functionality where none was necessary.
Actually, if you've seen some of the offline hacks a while ago, you'd see that people managed to build outside of the city borders. Essentially the whole region is one giant city.

If EA won't allow that from the start, I imagine proper offline support will allow hacks to do that.

I think it's a fake story by Ars to see how far it can spread.
Or Ars got hacked and somebody posted this as a defacement.
Either way I don't believe that it's real. Stuff they are talking about is just too fantastical. Virus that can communicate using pc speakers/mics while computer is unplugged from power? bios battery does not have enough capacity to do that.

big fat BS.

The caveat about being unplugged was that it was a laptop with a battery. Kind of stupid to mention it at all given that.
It didn't say explicitly that they were laptops.

The fix would be fake "GFWL" registration server software that you load on your machine. A small executable that pretends to be the MS server, authorizing whatever bullshittery the game needs it to. This would keep games without an active publisher/developer from being completely cut out. Now, it won't fix multiplayer issues, but it'd at least be a solution for being able to play games SP.
Such a solution would also involve messing around with your computer's hosts file to redirect requests from MS's servers to localhost...
If that's the case then you just might as well get proper game cracks that would not require gfwl at all.

Right, Microsoft will want to allow continue the support of Linux and OSX gaming.

I'll say it again: The new guy MS hired from Valve should just tell them to make Steam a first class citizen on windows! Make a deal with Valve, ship it with windows update! All the bad press about win 8 will just fade away
Horrible idea!
Steam is too big as it is!
PC Market thrives on competition, not monopoly!
Microsoft should make a standard API where various digital distribution services can simply plug in and provide a unified interface to everything that steam/origin/uplay/gog/greenman are offering.
That way it doesn't matter where you bought the game from, it will work the same way.
Just like it doesn't matter if you bought physical game from bestbuy or walmart or gamestop or whatever other retailer there is.

Wait, wait, wait. GTA4+addons require GFWL (and I believe for multiplayer...)
Will Rockstar patch the game?

This make's Notch and his succses with Minecraft look saint like! (Notch should pay Romeo to make this guy his bitch)
I think Notch is very humble.
He is opinionated, but I'm not aware he's ever been offensive. His attitude has always been that Minecraft was a fluke success and he's very grateful for it.

While Fish is also very opinionated, he's also very passionate about his game.

And you can finally install TF2 into "not default" location..So I can install it on my 2TB D:\ drive where all the games go, and not on my tiny 128GB C:\ SSD where Steam itself is.

That is and ONLY IF WP8.1 will be allowed to be installed on the current WP8 devices. With MS' current inconsistent upgrade policies you will never know until it happens.

It is different from MS' other products because when you buy a computer, it does not become obsolete 1.5 years after purchase.
