Shrug. I have not finished a GTA game since the 2d ones. For me at least, the 3d ones are mostly sandbox police murder games. I don't play the storylines.

Did you play GTA IV? It was far more than a “sandbox police murder game”… It was a Russian mafia sandbox police murder game with the best storyline in the series. That ran like shit when released on the PC and STILLLLLL has the bug where if you use an optical mouse you can't play bowling,darts,pool,ETC.
Completed the quote for ya.
Can't even begin to imagine how many screw-ups there will be when this gets a PC release. (When RS gets around to it)

Yep that's what I want to know,
The last two releases caused regular BSOD for me.
Rolled back and the problem went away.

The photo that broke a mother’s heart.

I totally understand the parents' reaction, but I don't think it was intentional on the photographer's part. It was probably just a lack of consideration and a rush to get the kids pics taken as quickly as possible.

This story has been running the traps for months now and it is widely known that it was nothing more than an honest (albeit stupid) mistake which has been rectified.
The photo was retaken with the child in question sitting on the bench.
The mother is probably still hoping for big $$$$ compensation.

Aus is so fucked up with this sort of nonsense. Mayhem and murder? No problem. Some virtual drugs in a game? NEIN!


What? You mean like the USA with gobs of blood and gore on TV BUT, when Janet Jackson rips her top off to expose her jewelry covered nipple at the superbowl the whole country loses it friggin' mind?

Better pull your skirt down. Your hypocrisy is showing.

*sigh*
More overblown political correctness gone mad wankery.

Nothing in the comment.

There is plenty of hope and equality in the world for anyone no matter what sex you are or the color of your skin.

However there is NO hope if you are THIN-SKINNED.
End of story.

The worst part of this is that if you do vote with your wallet and not buy a game that has on-disc DLC do the developers look at the poor sales figures and say "Well on-disc DLC doesn't work"?
NO!!!
They start pissin' and moanin' and playing the "piracy" card.

Your point about money up front business model carries an expectation that a products not faulty. Define "faulty." Bug free? Then stop buying software. "Manageable bugs?" That's a fair expectation. Did you ever see a movie you didn't like? Is that "faulty" entertainment? Can you get your money back? No, you can't.

You, sir, need to have realistic expectations, or expect to see gaming go away.

Hollywood is another of those corporate scam artists who have lost sight of who the customer really is(even more so than the gaming industry)and no, I rarely go to the cinema at all and I don't buy dvd's or blu-ray's.

Gaming will NOT go away. Hyperbole there.
{soapbox mode on}
However I would not bat one eyelid if 90% of current publishers went bust because people stopped buying their bullshit. EA, Ubisoft and even Zenimax I'd like to see go bust so the message would go out that WE are the customers and if you piss on us then you lose.
I do not however hold any hope that this will happen as stupid kids will still wet themselves like over excited puppies for Modern Warfare 2,3,4,.....50,000.
Let's take Zenimax,Bethesda & Skyrim as an example......
Skyrim through Steam in Australia is STILL $90 USD!!!
Whereas it is only $60 USD if you live in the USA.
The AUD is ahead of the USD in value. There is NO shipping costs to speak of so, this is a blatant and deliberate RIP-OFF!!
I have NO sympathy for any company who does this and dies.
Let's hear how you justify that sort of shit Mr.Devinoch.
This is only one example, you need to take your head out of your arse and take off your rose colored glasses.

Game crashes happen. If they happen a lot, then yes, by all means, yell at the developer, that's a game-breaker.

Ah yes. However the problem is they already have your money.
Money up front business model carrys with them an expectation of receiving a product that is not faulty. How many will refund that money?

You sir need to stop bending over and taking it up the arse from big corporations so often.
The more you bend over and say "more please" the more they will do it.

Games are expensive to make. You know why you don't get patches? Because people didn't buy the game. If people don't buy the game, there's no money incoming to improve the game. It was easy to QA games in the Atari 2600 days. Now there's so much content in games, it's nearly impossible for anyone to have seen it all once, much less the 50-100 times it takes to properly QA it.

So what your saying is games publishers are selling FAULTY products and whether you get that product fixed or not depends on people buying that product?

If you can't see how wrong this business model is then you are lacking in active brain cells sir.

And if they do get their refund they will just rebuy it 3 months down the road.

People need to stop being all sandy vag.

And you need to stop bending over and taking it up the arse from AAA game companies like a little prison bitch.

They'll keep doing dodgy shit if you keep buying their games.
