Well BL2 is awesome so if it's a lot like that, great! I've seen screenshots of this and it looks just fine as far as fidelity on PC. That said $60 is above my limit. I still haven't played any of the DLC for BL2 even.

So maybe it's the first successful console MMO? Thumb surgeons must be raking in the money now buying Mercedes and upgrading their kitchens.

No Wasteland 2 there.
Yeah, I don't get it. Bad timing? I'm about to the end and have enjoyed every moment of it. I actually got bored with D:OS and haven't finished it.

For fans of the genre it's well priced but for the bigger audience they might be asking too much right now.

Yes well said C. The Blame Game is a high priority in Government. Taking responsibility is not. Narcissists can't understand the adverse consequences of their actions and don't want to take responsibility for them.

The gameplay I saw was all indoor settings and I view that as not a good thing (tm). BL2 was worth full price, not sure about this. Probably not...

What I do wish they'd do is invest some time in to the story.

It wasn't relevant. You're in a dungeon: escape before you die.

Yeah adding much story to a game like this is a bad idea. It's a focused dungeon crawler game, not Skyrim or Witcher 3. Adding story to this sort of game is like adding story and a campaign to a Battlefield game. There are games that can be ruined by anything more than a simple story and this is one of them.

I agree with the notion that complicated and involved puzzles can be off putting. A puzzle needs to be fun, firstly. Fun can mean complicated if it's done right. But a poorly executed complicated puzzle can be a game killer too.

$25 is certainly the upper end of what the market will bear in the US, I believe.

Actually I think the way we drive cars is terrible since it's so 20th century. Using an actual wheel and pedals while sitting down? Why can't we just sit on the roof and face backwards while wearing an occulus rift in a bikini? So the question to ask here is the occulus wearing a bikini or do we? Either way that would be better because it would be new!

Duh. What else is he supposed to do? Admit it's all true?

LOL yeah how often do developers or publishers admit rumors that put them in a bad light? I've played the game and it does seem like a tech demo and AJ's review notes the glaring shortcomings of the game. It might be fun but yeah, I inclined to believe the rumor.

Is BF4 DICE's most patched game? At least they did support the game post-release.

How did you manage to get it for $15? Was it an upgrade or full install?
It was probably the upgrade from vista/7 program. That's how I got mine, but there was also another promo that MS was running for the pro version that was also $15. Anyway for anyone interested G2A does have copies of Win8 pro for ~15 right now via the marketplace. Regardless of whether or not it was the upgrade or not it's trivial to activate it from a clean install.

Thanks a lot for the tip! It worked great and now I have an extra copy of 8.1 for $15. I already activated it and it went flawlessly. I'm going to buy a couple more keys. All I had to do was acquire the installer for Windows 8 which I then updated to 8.1 and entered my new key. Simple as that. Thanks again

I can't find it on the G2A site for $15. I saw it for $50. Now their website says:

This product is currently out of stock.

Also I can't find the upgrade only the full version (I think). Would someone please provide a link or directions to find the $15 version?

Edit: oh nevermind. Must have been a script or privacy blocker. Tried it in Opera and the little applet shows the cheaper options. Thanks!

Wow, free upgrade to Windows 9? What happened to Microsoft? It's almost as if they've started caring just a little bit about their customers...

It just means they're pushing it out the door sooner, rather than later, and know there'd be a backlash otherwise...

It doesn't take much work to revert the touch UI back to what we already head and put a few new modest improvement in there. The formula is already known.

Well yes but how much does voting really do? And the notion of 'democracy' is nebulous anyway. The term 'republic' is more clear since it implies a government that that is empowered by the people while 'democracy' can impose mob rule and tyranny.

The people are speaking and it's pretty clear what they are wanting.

Incomplete buggy messes? : )

I interpret it as a an upwelling of resentment and rejection of the streamlined uninspired AAA console games. Though it could also be that the community loves being a part of the development process because that does make a better game when the developer listens and makes the right choices on the feedback.

For years now all the IT openings I see are for senior level positions with lots of experience and certifications. Is this because they fill the entry level positions with cheap foreigners?

Good for them. It's a solid game. I just found the gameplay to devolve into a action shooter with effects flying everywhere. I love the level 1 gameplay though. Too bad that doesn't last.

I dunno, I don't much care for this QTE-style combat adopted from Screed and Arkham. Instant counters, traversing yards at a time instantly, "press A to do spiffy animation attack"... all makes me feel pretty detached from the action. Wish they'd gone with a more deliberate, tactile system.

This. This looks to be a generic and repetitive console game. Press awesome button to win.

The thread linked in the article has further insightful discussion.

The ASUS Strix's three heatpipes are better designed to cover the GPU with thinner dividers and the card itself has better quality components. However the benefits of the EVGA ACX card are that EVGA has much better customer support and that the ACX cooler/card is smaller than the Strix (and smaller than other competitor's custom coolers).
