WTF then. The email I got says:
We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on June 4, 2014.

I'm guessing that this isn't your first year of Prime, and those of us who are new members get the lower renewal fee.
When I joined Prime last Fall, I was told when my $79 renewal would be... Increasing that now could break the contract.

No, been a prime member since...uh, when did they start offering it? Probably shortly after that. It's been longer than 5 years, though, because when I started college again I got to get the discounted student rate.

They've been experimenting with used games at Walmarts in Texas (or at least at the ones near Fort Hood). They didn't understand the value of games though, so they would offer like $5 as a minimum for games hoping to turn them around for $10. Apparently someone decided to go around and buy up every used copy of all the crappy Burger King games they could find and sell them to Walmart... so they'd have like 20 copies of Sneak King used... trying to sell them for $10. Comedy gold.

Yeah, Walmart employees are always conscientious and knowledgeable, adn because they are being paid so well you know they will make an effort to...

Yeah, who am I kidding? Fuck Walmart, both because they are a plague on society and because this is MY business, you soulless bastards!

Got an email from Amazon stating that my 2014 membership payment would still be $79 and that the $99 for existing members doesn't start until 2015.

That's only if your membership renews before the price goes up. Unfortunately mine expires in June, so my renewal will be $99. I think I'm going to gift myself a $79 one though.

Not according to Amazon

Dear Jeremy Star,

We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing in 2015. Your 2014 annual renewal will remain at the original price of $79. On June 9, 2015, your membership will renew at $99/year.

Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million. We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video and a selection of over 500,000 books to borrow from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

For more information about your Prime membership, visit our Prime membership page.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Prime Team

Smart pistol is bullshit. Period. You can defend it all you like, but we all know it's bullshit.

You are wrong. It is quite difficult to use against enemy pilots unless they are oblivious. You have to be pretty damn sneaky to use it for anything other than creep farming. It's basically what this game has instead of witchblading, and it's much more fair than that ever was.

shihonage wrote on Mar 16, 2014, 07:50:
My point was that I miss games which weren't made for idiots (COD/Titanfall), and weren't simplistic, sloppy-coded garbage(Tribes:Ascend). They had multiple paths to victory, which suffocated hackers even with working aimbots.

Titanfall is a game that introduces multiple paths to victory to team deathmatch. That you somehow hadn't noticed that proves that what Trevellian said is correct, and everything you type about Titanfall is a waste of keystrokes.

No, YOU are wrong, hur dee der de dur.

If you are getting killed regularly by the smart pistol, you do suck at the game. It takes ages for the thing to lock on, it's only good for ambushing pilots and killing grunts. It's just a beginner weapon that helps people get into the game, that's it.

Can I be cool liek all the kids and just scream WRONG!

I disagree. I have tried out the smart pistol and whipped the shit out of everybody with it. It locks on pretty damn fast, and the entire middle of the screen is one giant killzone. Added bonus - it fires just as fast as a sub gun without locking on an does more damage! Yeah!

Fanboi defense away!

"I suck at the game and im going to cry hacks." That's all I got out of the last few posts. Keep making up excuses for yourselves. There will always be someone better than you. Especially people who have been playing COD for years and are already used to the aiming mechanics in this game because of it. Get over it. I place in the top 3 almost 75% of my games played (this is a stat you can look up in game BTW) and probably about 30% of those placings were MVP. In all that time I have MAYBE been suspicious of ONE person for hacking. But apparently you guys run into them regularly. I find that incredibly difficult to believe.

If you don't like the game. That's fine. Don't like it. But dont make up bullshit like "everyone else is hacking" because you suck as a reason to give to other people. Its pretty pathetic. And this isn't the only game I've seen people do this with here. Just stop.

Blah blah blah, I THINK I'M AWESOME. That's all I got out of your bullshit. Respawn has admitted there are a ton of cheaters right now, so piss off.

Also, I rarely complain about cheating in games. I recognize that people are better than me, and I laugh when everyone in BF4 whines about this guy or that guy cheating. No, they're probably just better than you.

However, I have watched people in Titanfall cross an entire map in a split second, and have seen a bunch of people popping headshots with pistols and subguns from across the map with regularity. Like, every kill.

How is it gouging? What's 10% of $400? Couple that with more expensive shipping costs, tariffs, etc. and it's a wonder they haven't bumped it a full $100 and MS along with them. Whatevs just another reason not to go console in the first place. Like you need anymore to begin with.

Right cause it only effects consoles ....

Game engine is really not optimized for PC. Runs great sometimes, sometimes choppy on the same map later on.

NVidia driver issues, according to Respawn, anyway - randomly all the textures turn into an acid trip and you have to close out and restart the game to get it to go away.

Smart pistol is bullshit. Period. You can defend it all you like, but we all know it's bullshit.

Matchmaking - yeah, it sucks. Hey, the militia is a team of noobs, and the other guys are are level 27+. Shockingly, we (militia) kept losing every map.

I played. I "beat" the campaign (mostly by losing every map), I tried a few multiplayer modes. Even at level 24, I am getting slaughtered by hackers and people using the smart pistol. (And hackers using the smart pistol, which is just fucking ludicrous.) I still maintain that the maps feel friggin' empty unless you absolutely stick to a small area where everyone tends to congregate.

For my time, I will still be playing BF4 multi, even though that could be greatly improved as well. (Mostly I've been playing Zelda on my 3DS this weekend.) Bring on Metal Gear and Infamous!

IF you are encountering cheaters. LOL. It's not IF. Every game I have played so far has had at least one guy cheating his ass off. It's pretty obvious stuff - speedhacks and aimbot. Nothing like being repeatedly headshot across the map with the sub gun.

And I wound up with a copy of Titanfall. Apparently MS is really pushing this, since our distributor got copies to give out on both PC and Xbone.

Was not going to buy, bu free? Well, shit.

Of course he also have a few negative points, especially about the campaign mode, graphics, and a few other things.

"Merely great, poor us, we have to make due with merely great."
"Titanfall is totally awesome."

His closing remarks.
I don't really watch videos like this, it's 30 minutes of time I'd rather play something. These "Let's Play" things are just beyond me for that reason. I have enough crap to play that I don't need to spend 30 minutes watching someone else play something to see if it's good or not. That gets determined pretty well over the first week or three regardless.

You are not alone. I cannot fathom watching someone else play. I want to be the one playing. Then again, I can't watch sports on TV for the same reason.

The amount of kids that come into my store thinking they are going to get rich and famous by posting let's plays astounds me.

Played the beta for a few hours. Going to pass. It feels too new COD for me. I liked the older Modern Warfare 1 and 2, but then it got stupid. This is in line with MW3 and Black Ops.

Also, big maps, tiny player limit. And you can so tell AI from players because they are stupid bowling pins to shoot while you wander around wondering where the fuck everyone is.

Refusal to update. I know they don't want to split the player base, but there are a lot of us who just are tired of playing the same game that is now almost 10 years old. And this expansion is so uninspired that I cannot even force myself to think about buying it. (Never finished Pandaria either...)
