It could very well be poor timing too, I mean honestly...

I read that as 'poor triming' and thought... what? Oh, yeah.

Is this game as good as Torchlight 2?

It's a totally different kind of experience, can't really compare them IMHO. It's well worth the money if you like MMOs at all but if you don't like MMOs then I wouldn't bother.

Agreed. Or put another way... GW2 is a vastly bigger game. Doesn't necessarily mean better, just bigger. Much bigger production values. But yeah, they don't compare well at all.

Outstanding. Wow I can hardly believe I'm seeing this. People are starting to see that the duopoloy cartel is a scam that has fleeced the country? The duopoly is a 20th century disease that doesn't work for us now. Wow. I still think that if we had consumer choice in broadband, Net Neutrality would be unnecessary.

I like how in the video interview he specifically says he's not advocating 'community' (government controlled & operated) broadband.

I thought congress was moving to end the TSA entirely. They really need to.

fat chance it that happening, if anything I expect to see these blue shirts running around shopping malls next.

Yeah, fat chance. Oh the home lancht defense are expanding, not contracting. Our politically controlled nationalist paranoia is on the rise here. Great place to bring up a child. Not.

This simply isn't a blame game. Someone somewhere was responsible for fucking up and that person is likely Curt.

You say it isn't a blame game and then proceed immediately to blame Curt directly. It was a *high risk* investment on the part of the state government. The state government obviously wants to save face and not face the consequences of their greed that blinded them.

Sounds like a witch hunt to me. A key component of government work is playing the blame game.

They should only be allowed to do this if they don't have any sort of market exclusivity agreement with local government.

edit: what I mean is that it should be written into the agreement about arbitrary service terminations. I'm not asking for more laws regulating ISP's. That would be even worse.

Too bad nobody cares about ipv6 connectivity since the US can't even match the net speed in other countries on a consumer level.

Because we haven't dismantled the duopoly. That said, our broadband is pretty good. Raw speed is a rather shallow way to gauge the overall health of the Internet. Defeating sopa/pipa (for now) was a much bigger victory.

Interesting that our EU friends have to now carry the banner of freedom for us Americans. We all know changing the terms after the fact IS A NO NO. Good for them, hope they win and reverse this recent trend of BS.

Is it a Right or Freedom?

  • A Right is a common privilege given to all citizens for example the right to vote, the right to property, the right to worship, the right to information, etc.

  • Freedom is when you have no constraints to conduction your actions freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to rebel, freedom to complain, etc.


  • Seems to be more of a right and not a freedom issue. In this case, the right to resell DD games. We have the 'freedom' to buy or not buy from STEAM though. So we are still free here on that count. The game developer has the 'freedom' to implement steamworks in their game, or not. Now, the consumer may or may not have the 'right' to access their STEAM games if they decline the agreement once.

    'Freedom' doesn't mean you have a mandatory alternative to STEAM though. Freedom doesn't guarantee much. That's what rights are for.

    I put a good 3-4 hours into the game last night and I was having a blast! It is so much better then the first game was.

    Yes and it gets better later on. The game has lots of nice surprises and shows creative inspiration.

    Its more of BL1 and then cranked up some. I'm having fun, both in single player and multiplayer. I'm the kinda person that likes to explore everything and do all the sidequests so its not as far as you might think.

    Dev thanks for your review/impressions post. Much appreciated. I agree with what you said too. There that there are times when I feel like I'm playing a modern version of Doom, or Rage done far better. I'm rather ecstatic about the game right now. We'll see if that lasts. Seems like they designed the game around replayability so thumbs up for that too.

    ATI/AMD have and use Havoc. I think this is their site - http://www.havok.com/products/physics

    So has anyone tried this mod? I meant to download it but assumed it wouldn't be worth it due to the latency from US to Australia.

    Yes it's fantastic and has a lot of promise. For the last beta test, the server was in Norway I believe, not Australia. I think also they had a US server but I'm not sure. There was lag initially but that was due to their code and they fixed it after twelve or so hours.

    So I presume that these STEAM numbers include those of us who bought BL2 of GMG and registered the code in STEAM.

    Creston wrote on Sep 17, 2012, 11:35:
    Nah, I doubt that. There's around 100K people playing Day-Z every day

    What? The game has sold like crazy for a few months, topping the steam list repeatedly. And that doesn't count retail. 500k to 1M units is much closer than your low-ball figure. 2M isn't out of question. And 100k online daily could fit into the 1M total sales number just fine.

    Anyone can be manipulated and suggested to do just about anything. Being malleable is not and should not be a crime. Eraser is right.. Who is supplying and encouraging it? The authorities. They do it, I believe, because they need some 'scraps' to justify their enormous budgets. They twist truths and use scare mongering in budget hearings and use lie-ridden threats if they don't get their money. It's a shakedown and we are all the victim. It's been going on for decades. They get away with it and that encourages more of it. If the people are worried about money and not their freedoms, they'll get neither.
