I've never really had an issue with Steam Support, the few tickets I've had were answered within a business day and resolved without issue.

Greenmangaming's support on the other hand is terrible. They tried to screw me on a refund (their fault) which took 8 back and forths to resolve. It only ended in my favor because I refused to accept their BS reasoning and threatened a chargeback and complaint to their payment processor. That was a real wake up call to the price of cheap games there.

Weird, I've had nothing but good experiences with GMG. Once I cancelled a pre-purchase because they stated the keys wouldn't be coming until launch day - so no chance of a preload - I cancelled and got a refund no problem. And there were one or two other things over the years, both resolved quickly and to my satisfaction. I'm on the side of saying Steam support sucks however.

Bobbob invites you to live with him in SoCal. If you ask nicely he'll probably even sponsor your visa.

Fingerscrossed

I've always wanted to hang out in Oxnard - simply because I like saying Oxnard. It's almost like saying Ox nads.

Sounds like that's about right for most EA customers, which is why I avoid 99% of EA games. So it works out for both of us.

But do you really avoid 99%. How many did you play this past year?

I played DAI and that's it. I don't play BF, Sims, their sports games, their MMOs, just what Bioware makes. Even then I waited for deep discounts on most of their stuff. In fact DAI and the first Mass Effect are the only two games I bought day one over the last 5 or so years. So yeah. I wasn't exaggerating.

This sounds more like something that exists solely to benefit publishers so they can data-mine what people are looking at and use it for sales later on. I see zero point to this - especially at $200. $200 are you effing kidding me? What's next anus tracking? See how many times your average gamer clenches his anus over the course of a play session?

Why don't they just get rid of their CS department entirely? It's obvious they'll never treat them well, and no one there obviously wants to be in their CS department.

Good concept for a service depending on how long the demo is. Are you going to DL 50 gigs just to check out an hour's worth of gameplay? Lots of people have caps to contend with.

Just quick read of that hack makes me think you should get a lawyer instantly if you are affected. Holy shit is that a scary amount of LINKED information to just "lose"...

with that people can literally fake YOUR identity. And that can lead to huge damages, credit card monitoring doesn't even cover it, with that info you can also change addresses on not so secure internet shops, and buy on a legit CC but send the wares to a wrong address. Or even change domain registrations with zero recourse. Heck you can even register new CC's with that info

And that's all just for starters. Think how that can ruin your credit rating. What it could cost for any future insurance (home/auto/health) or maybe even be denied it entirely. They've been talking about that a long time. If insurance companies get their hands on that data - and who's to say they're not paying people to do exactly this - then they can deny you coverage if they deem you a high risk, or charge you premiums through the roof. Yeah, I'd be fucking pissed too.

Is it just me or are the Bundle Stars getting worse and worse all the time?

They've always been pretty ghetto. They do have the very rare sale on something good every once in a blue moon though.

Destiny and Hearthstone, both new releases in the fiscal year, combined for 40 million registered users (16 million of which belong to Destiny) and $850 million in revenue.

How do you get $850 million out of that? With Heathstone being free-ish, and 16 million sales of Destiny - which would gross 100 mil'ish and net significantly less. All I've been hearing is how Destiny has been a commercial failure given its development costs and now they're claiming it and a free game are responsible for close to a billion in net-revenue? Lucy, joo got some 'splaining to do!

So I went in on Subnautica and I have to say I enjoy it immensely. Not a ton to do you yet, but what's there is excellent. It's more like a chill simulator than anything else. Just swimmin' around, relaxin, it's nice.

Yes, but would they have larger sales if it was every two years? Absence makes the heart grow fonder. After two plus years without a game property you like you definitely have more of an itch for it. Look at GTA5 45 million sales and it hasn't even launched on PC yet. I dunno about you but I'm itchy as hell for some new Fallout and TES.

Not that I have any interest in CoD/BF anyway, but it's like with annual Ass Creed games, I'm burnt out on them now. No thanks, time for something exciting and new, much like The Love Boat.

Anthem is now in full damage control mode. The company has issued a statement that begins "Safeguarding your personal, financial and medical information is one of our top priorities, and because of that, we have state-of-the-art information security systems to protect your data. However, despite our efforts, Anthem was the target of a very sophisticated external cyber attack".

Heh, yeah. Sure. Pull the other one, it's got bells on it. I'd love to see what percentage of their annual budget goes to IT security. I'd be amazed if it was even 1%.

Saboth, talk to your local government and state consumer watchdogs. You should also check with whatever you have their for a law society as they generally provide free referrals for free consultations with the appropriate lawyers. As you said, this is something that could very seriously impact you and your family for the long run so it's worth looking into. I wouldn't settle for anything less than lifetime protection either.

The government has to get serious about this stuff and start mandating that these huge corps - particularly ones with sensitive information like health care, insurance, etc. - are doing enough. There should be annual audits and levels of compliance in order for them to keep doing business. The loss of this sort of information can be detrimental on all kinds of levels.
