I kind of hope they fail now.

The company that prided itself on DRM-free games willfully took the site down for a hoax PR stunt, brings back the site without major changes, and brags about how great it is...
Time to die.
Not planning on purchasing from them

100% ACK + QFE. They can go and fuck themselves big time as far as moi is concerned.

I smelled the stunt right away and thus wasn't pissed.

Wow, you're smart. Can I have your baby?
Dude, seriously, most people (like me) are pissed off because they smelled or knew it was a stunt. That's the whole point of being pissed off about this shit: Them pulling off a completely unnecessary, stupid, zero respect stunt at the expense of their paying customers.
If there really would've been any serious reason to take down the site then it would have been kinda tragic but I'm sure no one would have been that mad at them as they are now.

I'm with you guys in the camp of disgruntled (mostly ex-)customers. GOG (and CD Project on a whole including The Witcher 2) can go and fuck themselves. With the exception of potential future super-duper-mega deals on rare gems of the past I'm going to avoid their service and business like the plague from now on. If they want to screw around or toy with people then they gotta pick on someone else in the future.

So they seriously expect people to buy this game for US$ 19.99 when it's going to sell for US$ 4.99 around Halloween or Christmas at the very latest (knowing Valve's history of fucking people in the ass who buy early)? Really? Well, anyone that dumb deserves to go out of business. I'm not buying this shit until it's part of a Steam sale cuz I'm not into anal and all outta lube, too!

I think the space taken up by the GPU would be better spent on more CPU cores.

Yep. That would be really great to have even more cores doing nothing but consume power. Awesome idea. Where can I sign up to nominate you for genius of the year?

Seriously though and I'm kinda sorry to put it that bluntly but your idea is frickin retarded. The vast majority of the software/games on the market today only has rudimentary multicore support for usually dual cores and only in very rare cases up to quad cores. There is absolutely no indication that this is going to change anytime soon so using space for even more unused CPU cores would be pretty stupid.

We're talking about consumer market stuff here and the space is most certainly best put to use by a decent graphics unit that makes low end discreet gfx chips obsolete. I agree with the article that Sandy Bridge will do just that. Intel's current IGP is by far not as bad as some people are saying. People who make fun of Intel integrated graphics have probably never seen it in action because if you would then you'd know that it is by far not as sucky as popular opinion would have you believe. Naturally it's only going to get better with the next gen so I'm sure that Intel is in fact on its way to push low end discreet solutions out of the market.

JoWooD owns enough of the Gothic IP that Piranha Bytes had to come up with the name Risen and set Risen in a different world.

That... and by now they have come to a mutual, friendly agreement with Piranha Bytes regarding the usage of the Gothic license for future games (no one knows the details of that agreement, only that it exists). All the dumbfucks talking about a "stolen" IP need to get their facts straight and their heads checked. If you sign something away by contract it's not theft. Or do you tards also call your bank out for "theft" if you mortgage your house? Did the bank "steal" your house in exchange for the credit? No? Wow. I'm impressed. You're starting to learn the difference already.
It's almost exactly the same thing with developers and publishers. If the developer owns an IP they usually need to surrender their rights (at least for a given time) in exchange for the development contract and the advance payments (= the credit) included within. It's part of the publisher's security net. It's business as usual, not "stealing".

But we better stop now before I accidentally un-dumbfuck some of you jokers .

Keep in mind that the MSFS series...
... [blahbluhblahbluh] ...
Time to start shopping for new PC hardware...

I'd save that money if I were you. I don't think that they have removed the "simulator" part from the title accidentally. In fact I'm pretty damned sure that they did that fully on purpose to distinguish this new and accessible flight game from the sims of the past.
I am also sure that they don't give a rat's ass about the industry that is based on the sims of the past. If anything then they might be making a few bucks from the add-ons because of licensing fees but why would MS care about the hardware (when they have shut down their gaming peripheral division at a time when MSFS was probably near the pinnacle of its popularity) or the communities (when they have shut down their pretty popular "Zone" service)? Trust me. They don't give a fuck.
MS Flight as a part of their "Live" crap is going to be to MSFS what Windows Live Mail is to Outlook 2010. If that.

No one is going to buy a game simply because of the tech involved.

Well, wrrrrrrooooonnnnngggg . I'd be curious to know how many people ended up buying Crysis just because of the uber graphics instead of the actual game but my guess would be a lot. Heck, even I bought Q3A and UT primarily because of the visuals back in the day and to give my neat, new rig something to chew on. I wasn't really all that interested in the multiplayer aspect of those games. I used them more as tech demo toys and for benchmark comparisons and so on. Of course those days are now long gone since the age of PC-exclusive games with ubah visuals has come to an end with the release (and lack of success) of Crysis.

In the end how an engine looks is in the hands of the artists, not the programmers.

Well, wrrrrrrrroooonnnnnggg, too (ya on a roll again, Humpy ). The "looks" of an engine are in fact very much determined by the programmers since they are the ones laying the groundwork for the artists (and everyone else who is working on the actual content for that matter).
Naturally it very much depends on the capabilities of the engine (polycount and all that) how detailed the art assets can be or must be or how detailed the animations can be or need to be etc.

Of course it is true that talented artists can contribute to covering up the shittiness of an engine to some extent. Prime example: World of Warcraft. Great artistic design and a relatively good looking game in spite of the shortcomings of the engine.

But no matter what the Blizz artists are doing WoW will never ever look like Age of Conan simply because AoC's engine has been made to deal with a totally different level of detail and a set of graphical features that WoW can only dream about. AoC's just been made like that. By programmers. Not artists. Artists are just the ones who get "shopping lists" of stuff to create/paint/texture/model/animate/whatever. They pretty much have zero influence on the engine or its looks per se.

LOL thanks for the support but I'm one of those tards and Ubisoft PC sales did go down 1% from 2009 to 2010 LOL

Dude, come on. Don't you go and disappoint uncle CJ now like zirik did. I hope we all know that you gotta put a number like that in perspective to the whole market. The entire PC video game market declined -23%(!) in 2009. So -1% is frickin' outrageously awesome. Ubi outperformed the market big time. Yeah, I know, it's only retail but console retail was down -11% in 2009 as well. There is no way in hell that downloads made up for the entire decline.
Everyone knows that consumer spendings were way down last year because of that little worldwide financial meltdown. For Ubi to lose only -1% of their PC sales (which they probably give less than a rat's ass about anyway compared to the sales on consoles) means that they prolly had a frog-eating orgy with Moulin Rouge hookers and some of the finest Moet & Chandon vintage champagne.

So anyway... if there is anyone who seriously believes that Ubi was or is hurting from the extremely small vocal minority who are boycotting them then all I can say is: Light 'nother pipe and keep dreamin' boyz!

Honestly. It's hard to believe just how fucking retarded you are, zirik. After ASeven kindly educated you on the difference between a regular year vs a fiscal year you should have STFU, crept back into the hole you came from and wept like a puppy about your own stupidity. It is incredible that instead you chose to prove that you're not just stupid but absolutely, completely and totally retarded beyond any recognition or hope of salvation. Gratz on an all new low, man. I mean it's always been clear to me that you anti-DRM tards aren't the brightest bulbs in the universe but you're like dark matter, dude. Jesus H Christ....

I wonder if the lost sales from pissed off old customers add up. I wish we could see the numbers.

What "lost sales"? What's giving you crazy anti-DRM lunatics the retarded idea that Ubi may have lost sales? A couple angry nerd rage posts on teh intahnetz? LOL indeed.
No, Sir. Ubi is doing really well. For Q1/2010 they expected sales of ~EUR 145 million but ended up with ~EUR 160 million. Sales were up 93% (i.e. they almost doubled their income) compared to the same period a year ago when they only made EUR 83 million.
These numbers are a forecast. Final data will be posted on July 22nd.

Now go cry in a corner and stop molesting us adults, k? thx
