Why?
For one, having a Facebook account is normal now. It's a sign of a decently adjusted social person. Not having one sends off alarms of Unabomber.

But even then, perhaps the profile is just hard to find, so not a huge deal. ...
Which candidate do you think the recruiter will be acting on?
Obviously this is the difference between Canada and the US. In Canada, requiring something like that is a violation of the employment and hiring act. Plus in Canada, despite being prolific at having FB accounts, privacy of the individual still reigns supreme, because it's protected in codified law.

To plenty of people, having a FB account means that it's a cry for attention, because you don't get enough of it.

Well no one has made enough of a stink about that if it is illegal. Many of the jobs I see in the Vancouver business sector require candidates to have a LinkedIn profile to be considered. Both Facebook and LinkedIn are online profiles where you can control how much/what information you want to share. I have seen recruiters want other things, including Facebook, before. That is far less common, however.

Well it's about time.

They announced 11.1 active subscribers 3 months ago nearly to the day. They provide these numbers every three months, and have since the beginning of WoW Acti/Blizzard.

You could hear in Mike Morhaimes voice today a bit of concern, but it does appear they have a number of decent strategies to mitigate the losses, deal with ToR in the long term and even bring a lot of people back.

Edit: Correction, they have announced numbers since the beginning of Acti/Blizzard. I admit I do not know about how they handled it before the merger.

Listening to the Acti/Blizz Q3 Conference call. Interestingly enough, their Online Revenue is up 22% from last year. Obviously WoW is only a part of that, but it seems the company isn't crying at the moment. In fact, the company is hitting record highs everywhere. Looking forward to Mike's statement on WoW's situation (and if there really is any cause for concern) shortly.

EDIT: 10.3 million current subscribers as of today. Mike's trying to sprinkle sunshine on it, but...

EDIT #2: Absolutely no new Diablo 3 news.

EDIT #3: Question/Answer period. People are asking about where WoW subscribers are going. Mike is still sprinkling sunshine without really answering anything.

EDIT #4: They're getting hammered with reasonable WoW subscriber questions and reasonable Diablo 3 RM Auction House questions. Mike's sounding flustered.

I suspect that since Blizzard is pushing Azmodan in Diablo III that the expansion will focus around Belial since Duriel and Andariel are the other two of the Lesser Evils who are now dead.

All I will say is that this scenario is not the case.
If you want to learn more, check out the panels (especially the lore panel) from this years Blizzcon. Spoilers, obviously.

Having actually played and beaten RDR on PS3. I can say that some of the game would need to be changed in order for it to work in a PC setting.

The main issue off the top of my head, is how its controller based auto aim system is used during horse/coach rides. How it works is the game literally and fully auto aims you to a target just by using left trigger. It actually cycles targets with each left trigger press.

So riding along on a coach/horse its literally this: *Under attack* Left trigger-right trigger to shoot. Left-right, left-right, left-right. Thats an actual shoot out.

I'm a fan of mouse based aiming too, fully. But this game hand holds you. Maybe thats why they don't release it on PC. They don't want to have to re-do game mechanics.

From what I recall, there were three aiming modes in RDR. You're describing casual mode. Expert mode was available, and that was pure manual aiming for all situations.

It's too bad really. RDR is the only Rockstar game I truly enjoyed. A PC version with a Rockstar fan community known for insane mods/enhancements would have been amazing.

Good game.

When once we used to pay $50-60 for a game like Contra3 on the SNES, this game offers far more game-play and variety for muuuuch less. Recommended, and even more so if there is a steam-sale one day. Fun mindless diversion that pays homage to this genre nicely in the Serious Sam style.

No they haven't. They said that attributes fell into one of two categories 99% of the time (enough str to wear gear, max vit, or enough str to wear gear, enough dex for max block, max vit). If 99% of the time everyone was going to do the same thing, there's no point in having variety, because no one is taking advantage of the variety.

In my online-only experience, agreed 100%. Attributes were fun for the first couple run throughs of the game when you were experiencing the content for the first time and no one had done the math on the best builds yet. They quickly became pointless, and something most people held on too. However, perhaps not so much in single player, a mode I have little/no experience with where you couldn't just go and find a game to get yourself rushed through difficult areas of the game in any mode while holding onto hundreds of attribute points. I have a feeling those who only played single player often didn't have the luxury of holding onto points to make the best mathematically built build. But single player is, unfortunately for some, gone and I believe it was a good idea taking attributes with it.

I've watched quite a few of the Diablo III videos, and in none of them did it look like WoW. The flavour, feel and colour of the game was all very similar to Diablo II.

Agreed again. The game oozes Diablo graphically/atmospherically. WoW comparisons seems to be, IMO, flawed supplemental ammunition people are using who have other grievances with the game and/or Activision/Blizzard.

did you NEVER see the spam characters in Org or SW? The ones that would not only spell out the name of gold selling websites with a plethera of lvl 1 characters, but would also HAVE THEM STAND IN AIR all at the same time? And that's just the hacks that the spammers use. There's a lot of them out there...

I suppose I did back then so you make a valid point, but then those things never effected game play afaik beyond blocking a useless channel or two. To be more specific, I am curious about hacks that give a player an advantage over other people. For example, item duping, item modification, skill modification and enhancement etc. I am aware of an instance or two where an exploit was used (not a hack) to dupe certain things, but those were immediately fixed.

Hello, the D3 Beta called. Turns out, it's a beta.

I'm glad people are finding exploits before retail release. Hack away people, do your worst and get it out of the way.

In that case WoW must still be in beta because hacks and exploits still exist for it... /eyeroll

You'd be a very naive fanboi to believe otherwise... *grin*

Hacks exist for WOW? Where and what kind of hacks? Not being sarcastic, I'm genuinely curious.

I am also genuinely curious. I played WoW for around three years, over several realms, and never heard or seen a single thing about any hacks on Blizzards closed realms. An very rare exploit or two quickly fixed yes, but hacks no.

Edit: Oh and my point I was trying to make is that in this D3 Beta, the point of it is to test the servers and find bugs/exploits. If they persist into retail with no real successful recourse from Blizzard, and it begins to effect my game experience, I'll be ragging on Blizzard too.

Call me crazy, but I think over-saturation greatly damaged the brand, more than anything else. When you're at XIV it's time to stop, and work on something new.

When each subsequent game of that company's main franchise, minus XIV, seems to outsell the previous, how would you explain that it's time to do something new to their shareholders?
