I don't think any of this means anything to gamers. It's all, "Look at how wonderful we are!", stuff meant to make shareholders feel good about not selling their EA stock. Gamers know that winning "E3 awards" is nothing more than meaningless PR crap websites and magazines use to keep EA shipping review copies their way.

Aren't those the same reasons given for every delayed release ever?

Just for fun I did a little calculation. You would need to kill 27.39726 people per day, every day, for 10 years, ages 8 to 18 in this case, to hit 100,000. Granted, that's not a lot of carnage per day, but it is an awful lot of days.

For the weekly-minded, that's 191.78 a week for 520 consecutive weeks.

FiOS upload speed upgrade, easy. FiOS peering to Netflix to relieve network congestion, seemingly impossible.

Episodic gaming seems to have morphed into DLC, IMO.

Sounds more like they're trying to boost their (paid) membership numbers and they think mobile game developers will sign on if they phrase their message just right.

I thought it looked good, but, since it is CGI, it has absolutely no other value. It certainly isn't indicative of the game, other than showing that four can play in co-op and that you'll need to brush up on your kill-stealing skills.

Of course the NSA passes around intercepted nude photos. They need something to do while they're waiting to pass around intercepted sex videos.

No, texting doesn't affect their grammar and spelling skills. Their grammar and spelling skills are atrocious, regardless of whether or not they text. Too many of them depend on spell-checking and grammar-checking to bother learning how to do either one by themselves.

DLC is why I have stopped buying games anywhere near release. I wait for the 'everything' edition to come out and then I wait for it to go on sale.

"I'm thinking of selling my theremin, I haven't touched it in years"

That one made me laugh.

I didn't get the pavlov reference,the irony bus stop one or Benoit B Mandelbrot though.

Pavlov trained dogs to salivate when a bell rang in anticipation of being fed.

The bus stop irony apparently wasn't ironic enough for me.

Wikipedia has the Benoit B. Mandelbrot answer.

I'll probably end up getting this, but not until the 'everything' edition comes out and goes on sale for half-or-more off the original asking price. EA will DLC this to death to try and milk every last cent out of gamers while they can, so I know it will be a couple of years before I play this and I'm okay with that.

I've filled out a few collections and added some from my GoG wishlist this year. 25 game purchases in total for about $35. I won't go back to Steam unless forced at gunpoint.

Best Buy needs a hell of a lot more than "e-fairness" to ensure its survival.

I get the overall theme that there are a lot of crap products with dubious health claims but on a whole I prefer the non-government intervention over supplements, mainly because it'll turn into nothing more than big pharma controlling the government like the puppet that it is.

they win, we lose.
Actually, there are a whole crap-ton of products out there that outright lie about what they contain and what they can do. In fact, a number of those products are harmful and potentially fatal to those who use them. But hey, what's a few dozen casualties among free-market fanatics?

Why is anyone storing game design documents for an unreleased game in any form of cloud storage in the first place? It's not like the is the first time a cloud storage account has been hacked and it certainly won't be the last time.
