I find it hard to believe B&M retailers didn't see this coming. They should have been coming up with ways to embrace digital downloads as soon as DSL and cable modems started becoming popular.

Manuals.. Can kids these days even read? Can you imagine the gnashing of teeth if they had to read a manual to play their latest Gear of Halo game? What if they had to remember the range of an Exocet missile? They might turn off their game box and go outside to play stick ball, or walk on my lawn.

Facebook? I guess I won't be trying this. I deleted my Facebook account and I still feel it was for the best. Narcissistic and invasive crap.

Haha, yeah man. I love Blizzard and WoW... watching the fans is entertaining/sickening. Like watching Jerry Springer or Cops. Man mutants mixed with a couple of hottie nerd babes. Reminds me of being into hardcore as a kid. So many freaks of nature... I tried to ignore them and just appreciate the music in my own context. Same goes for WoW. Man, I've played Warcraft games for a long time but still have no idea about Warcraft lore.

Yeah, wow, I didn't realize people took Warcraft so seriously. Now I have some faces for the people who wipe groups and rage quit while calling everyone noobs.

Who? Am I out of touch? I've never heard of EALA. Westwood, I've heard of.

He's in the Xbox division. He has nothing to do with the PC. Not a single thing. He used to, but for the past few years he's been solely Xbox. They attributed his title incorrectly - he's under the IEB umbrella but he's specifically Xbox.

Okay.. thanks Beamer

And if they talked to a PC guy he would have discussed the PC.
But they didn't. They talked to Matt Barlow, a GM in the Xbox division.

It seems he's IEB which covers both Xbox and PC games marketing. Now if MS was on board for both Xbox and PC couldn't they have secured the DLC for both platforms? If PC gaming was really being proselytized at MS wouldn't this multi-platform game DLC be on both platforms? Seems to me (and having worked at MS) that PC gets no support from the big bosses as a gaming platform.

"Bethesda set a high bar with the quality of the Fallout game add-ons," said Matt Barlow, General Manager, IEB Product Marketing for Microsoft. "We have no doubt that gamers will be thrilled with seeing a new add-on pack extend their adventures with Fallout: New Vegas on Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE."

Microsoft is committed to PC gaming. They've said so several times.

If anything they seem to be tilting more toward the BC side, going back to requiring a modicum of actual skill to survive dungeons.

PUGs will be insane. I've been healing BC PUGS for the last week and it can get pretty bad. A lot of players just run through the dungeon oblivious to what's going on. I'm not sure how these people survived before BC when we had places like Scholomance.

Thinking about it, it's sad to think about how gaming has changed since Origin, LucasArts, Bullfrog, Westwood etc were in their prime. Everyone wants to put out Generic FPS IV or Generic MMO IV. There was a time when LucasArts made great Mil Sims, Space Sims and Adventure games. Some games required you to *gasp* read a manual. meh

Regardless you should upload your invoice and register your EVGA card. They give you 30 days to do so or you miss out on your lifetime guarantee. If you ever RMA the card they will ask you to upload the invoice anyway.
