Yet again we see a large multi-national company with absolutely no cultural awareness. The term "cellular" simply isn't used in the UK; we use "mobile" or "mobile data". Rather than clarifying the situation they've just made it more confusing.

True but then again we also don't have 4g in this country yet - Ofcom isn't auctioning the frequencies until later this year.

But yeah the normal assumption that the world speaks American English instead of proper English is a bit annoying.

I giggled...but I'm also drunk right now.



Who said I was drunk???? Not like I ever drink and post shite on here.

PS The lorcin home-brewery is now producing some seriously good quality Ale for about 1/5 of the shop prices - I can't brew much until the Autumn but expect some seriously incoherent ramblings then.

If you woke up in bed with this game there's no way you'd tell your friends.

It would be funny how ass-backwards and hypocritical Americans are if it weren't so sad.

Trust me - as a non american. It already is funny.

*edit* cut down quote cause it was even funnier with the context removed.

Loving the food sub-text on here, I've given up on the full blown american bbq restaurant over here. But we are getting pretty close to a pizza delivery company - costing is all done etc and I've got one signature base ("olive overload" - pizza dough infused with chopped black olives, a bit like olive Focaccia but topped with normal pizza stuff).

Just need the rest of the start-up cash and we'll be up and running. Profit margins seem to be HUGE apart from the cost of insuring the drivers to deliver fast food - if we can get a good quote on that we're going to go for it.

Can't get excited - was really cross after spending hours modding skyrim to bring it even close to pc standard to discover the UI mod meant I didn't get steam unlocks.
I'm sure there are saves avail to get the achieves. Or disable the mods, reload the game, and you probably will get the achieves anyway.

Thanks but just went in without using the Script Extender launcher and achieves are still locked.

First impression: It looks like WoW, but if any there's any IP than can be MMO-ized it's Elder Scrolls. Bioware just effed up bad with TOR. Not too keen on it though. I'll wait for TES6.

That looks like elder scrolls for 5 year old PCs/bottom of the range laptops. Couple that with a player run market and your actions having no real effect on the world.

Sorry but I'm out.

It's a fantasy MMO.

The races looked pretty dated in Oblivion - the cat people in skyrim look like a expansion pack from EQ1.

It's directed by the guy from DaoC.

The MMO star is waning for me - I wanted to love SWTOR but I lasted 2 months.

Oh and I'd prefer fallout - had enough of elves to last a lifetime.

How about a race with 3 legs, or a cat based race that moves like a cat not a furry human? How about instead of orcs a sapient race with a disturbing number of legs rather than slightly elongated lower canines.

How about a game where a talented newcomer can run circles around someone who has played for years but sucks? No matter what the 'level'?

Couldn't care less about kinect - am really interested in getting my hands on the update to see if there a chance the files can be made to work with the PC. Again not for this one but if the first dlc is xbox exclusive and just contains some .bsa files....

There is a lot of wii games I do want to play - but it's so outdated and ugly it's not funny. Tonight I stuck a bluetooth adapter onto my pc and using hdmi and the dolphin emulator was playing wii in full hd on my telly. Much fun.

Point too note if a community written emulator can run wii games in full hd why can't the WII-U also upscale wii games to HD???

Spoilers a joke nin, could only spoil it if you've never seen erm any movie ever.

But yeah there was a brief section after the animated bit of the credits. Don't bother sitting through the whole black and white crawl, there's nothing at the very end.

UK doesn't normally get film releases before the US but took the family to see The Avengers tonight. All five of us loved it - even the 11 year old girl who wasn't fussed about going.

Spoiler: The good guys win even though it doesn't look like their going to at one point.

Oh and still no cats so can't make crap dad joke of "I thought I THOR a puddytat"

I ain't american so the whole indian shamen deal kinda left me cold and I really had to force myself through the first Prey. I'm hoping they can make Prey 2 somewhere between Portal and Half-Life and just drop the whole mystic bullshit and make a shooter which messes with your head.

I want Descent 4.

As an outsider of both the US and NZ this looks BAD. America is already pretty low on the popularity poll and then there are incidents like this where they just look awfully corrupt and like a bully.

No. For every popular MMO, there a quite a few freeshards. And IF there are no freeshards, not being able to "pirate" a game doesn't lead to instant success. More and more evidence suggests, that revenue and piracy are probably two isolated events.

I know but in their minds they think PC is riff with piracy and that's why it's not as profitable.

MMO might be a possiblity. They have the cash from the licensing fees for UE3 and the >$1 billion the gears of war franchise has raised.

They were interested in buying APB back in late 2010 - so they have some interest in MMOs.

It would virtually get rid of any piracy factor.

If they did it F2P and micro-transactions it would let them knock out a low budget quick one which could test the scalability of UE4 and if it was a sucess they could keep adding to it.

MMO makes sense to me

Being able to run any UE3 game is the minimum standard for PC gaming atm. Having a game which I assume will be running on UE4 should set our PCs a new benchmark to last another 5 or so years.

If the rumours are true my 2 year old desktop should be able to hold it's own against a PS4 - anything Epic release now is just going to confirm or disprove that.
