So how much public funds were spent towards this? How many millions of euros? Just shows how much more powerful a force consumer choice is than this sort of government regulation.

Blue, isn't the 20th of October even better? 20 10 2010 !

Numerology and the NWO apparently have some overlap also...

edit: infact a 2142 style game would be heaps better - the futuristic setting allows for some really nice gameplay additions (since it doesn't have to be real world based).

Agreed I'd rather see a 2142 sequel than this. Ahh but that's more of a true Battlefield game, not a 'bad company' derp game.

Yeah nice shot! One comment in that thread claimed it was obviously photoshopped, but I have a lot of experience in PS and it looks legit to me. Can't be 100% sure though.

My original copy of IWD2 works fine, but if they could widescreen support... I'll totally buy.

[Edit] There's a widescreen mod? Cool!

Yes there's a widescreen mod!

News Comments > On Game Prices & Inflation
4. Re: On Game Prices & Inflation Oct 6, 2010, 11:24 LittleMe
 
Though the prices of games look about the same as they have for years, they are only unchanged if you make like the Federal Reserve and pretend inflation doesn't exist. Taking inflation into account shows the current equivalent of 1990s prices for games from the N64 and Genesis era approaching the $100.00 USD mark.

Yes. Inflation isn't some magical mysterious force. It's simply the authorities stealing purchasing power from you by diluting the value of what you already have. This applies to all gaming, and all transactions around the world based on dollars.

The currency we use in the United States is an illegal and unconstitutional.

Back to the topic, yes, I paid $50 for games in the 1980's and I paid $50 for Civilization V. Albeit, the Civ V is tied to a Steam account and can't be resold. Revoking resale rights is a form of hidden inflation. This is all a product of central economic planning and statists who believe in or submit to tyranny, or the violence inflicted upon those unwilling to obey. Follow the money!! Do that and you'll find the true rulers of the world.

These two gameplay vids make it look very much like BC2/MW2. Notice there's NO RECOIL. It's like they're firing from a mounted platform.

That type of game gets old quick.

I'm enjoying it but it needs quite a bit of work with the AI and balance. Not much new there mind you, and if the previous games are anything to go by it's likely to get a lot of support.

Yeah. Also perhaps where CivV will really shine is through the modding community.

Sweet. I used to run a game server and thoroughly enjoyed banning cheaters/griefers. I suspect Blizzard has many more cheaters out there than just 5k. How many have they sold so far? 2 million or so? Only 5 thousand cheaters? Find that difficult to believe.

This man has it right... you don't always need to market to everyone and try to make a hundred million dollars. Make a game for a specified group and make it good to great, then all those people will buy it because they don't get served that often. Smaller investment equals smaller profit, but profit all the same...

Yes and while they do that they build a good rapport with their customers which is worth a lot.

if 1C spent all their capital trying to be the next EA they might go bankrupt in 2 years.

Yeah and so very risky but suits here think this is the way to go, but it's really just a form of ego boosting to have the 'biggest and best' selling IP out there. Egos take the fun out of gaming.

1. Net Neutrality Proposal Falls Apart. Sep 30, 2010, 12:45 LittleMe
 
But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia rejected that argument. It ruled that the agency had overstepped its authority when it ordered Comcast to stop blocking subscribers from using an online file-sharing service called BitTorrent to swap movies and other big files.

No matter what, the authorities aren't going to facilitate torrent traffic. The current proposed FCC NN laws/rules specifically say that it will only apply to legal Internet traffic. I rather doubt they are going to back torrent because a small percentage of torrent is actually legal permitted content.

I agree launch hype and initial sales are the life's blood of many game developers/publishers. Just because you are upset for the delay does that mean you can't understand why they delayed?

I also was wondering 'why not early December?' so thanks to Cram for answering with the new WoW:Cata release. Yeah I think even though Cataclysm is PC only it might pull many console gamers away so it should be seen as a huge industry release.
