Can't take credit for this but postings on Reddit indicate it's a Fallout 4 teaser trailer with spinning records that shows the music of Bach, which was used in Fallout 3. Another Record says Moonbeam Trio on it.

Not sure about that game, but for a lot of them it just easier to buy new copies on GoG or Steam to get rid of the antiquated CD checks, especially if you can get them for three bucks on sale.

The sad thing is, even trying to download mods for things like Minecraft leads one to walk a constant minefield (pun not intended) of malware. I had to forbid my kid from installing mods himself to minecraft because even though I taught him how to extract and install the mods, he's not ready to walk that minefield.

Just gave my nephews Minecraft, and was surprised that the mod sites for it were exactly as you say: full of malware. I was too late to save them, but that is a learning experience for kids.

1. Re: Comcast caught hijacking web traffic Apr 11, 2013, 09:32 McSterls
 
While I'm no fan of Comcast, I believe they have the right to show you your data usage if you are approaching the cap. How else would they show you this info, or alert you of violating the six strike rule if they don't redirect your traffic?

I'm surprised he received this notice though, I wonder what area he lives in. In my area Comcast currently isn't enforcing bandwidth caps, they are supposed to be implementing an overcharge policy but that hasn't come to fruition yet.

So is this game supposed to be out today or what's the deal I have not even heard of this before.

Article I read this morning said May 1st, but that the date hadn't been confirmed by UbiSoft

It's true, I read an article this morning on Zite where the author was playing the game after hacking Uplay. They pointed out that the PC version remains unannounced, but was finished and available for download.

Oh, How I hate Ubisoft.

$400

I jumped to your link and almost bought one, after looking at the resolution of the samples it's considerably poorer quality then the current generation of makerbot units. 2 grand for one of theirs is too much money for now - I think I can wait a few more years.

Just watched the video, obviously from the single player campaign and cut scenes - I recall they showed a bunch of SP stuff for BF3 too, who even played the SP campaign? People buy Battlefield games for the Multi-player - so why do they never show that? I'm sure it looks great, but does it look any better then BF3??

Wow, looks good.


It looks great! But, when I bought Arma II, final..not Alpha or Beta there were a lot of bugs that had to be ironed out. I still haven't gone back and played it. So why buy Arma III as an Alpha. you know it's going to be problimatic.

Looks like a bad rip off of Supreme Commander's Naval only portion.

P.S. Supreme Commander is like 8 years old and available today, no need to wait.

News Comments > Notch Backtracks on Psychonauts 2 Support
23. Re: Notch Backtracks on Psychonauts 2 Support Feb 5, 2013, 13:55 McSterls
 
I think they saw Notch made $101 million last year and the costs skyrocketed. How bout not making the game int he Bay area or structuring peoples salaries so that they get less money upfront and a percentage on the back end. There are all sorts of creative ways to bring a project together, it's not like studios aren't collapsing all over the place and developers are letting their people go to a jobless future.

At least he's honest and straightforward about it. He foolishly made a verbal (typed) commitment without realizing exactly what it entailed, and once he was made aware of it, he reneged. An honest mistake many people that suddenly came into money for the first time could make.

Agreed. No one can say Notch is a bad guy for backpedaling. Could Psychonauts 2 even recoup an 18 million investment? I know the first one was a pretty amazing game, but it wasn't a financial success, right?
