Well, better to be a bit overblown than having it come to pass and no one prepared for it. Still, people should always treat these things with a lick of common sense and realize it's likely not going to be all that bad either.

Yeah, I'll grab it when it hits $5. I too still have my original disc and jewel case too. I wonder if the music is redbooked. Always loved the soundtrack for that game.

Didn't the first one come out just about a year ago?

By this time next year, they should be announcing the 6th game.

The first one was in August. That's 3 games, or rather, one game and two paid point releases in 6 months.
Indeed. This is getting silly. But good for the developer, I guess?

I was going to say someone should make a dairy farm simulator and "milk" that for as much as possible. But, when you have annual games like CoD, Ass Creed, et al. you can't really blame these guys for milking the only property they have. Good for them.

This is why things like gene therapy and stem cell research are of paramount importance. We're virtually all genetically damaged in one way or another to greater and lesser degrees and that's the sort of science we need, not more drugs. If the religious kooks don't want any part of it, fine, but there's no reason the rest of us should suffer for their idiotic beliefs.

Clearly unfair pricing by having some regions pay less than others is the culprit. Equal pricing in all regions would make this a non-issue.

Indeed. There's already a 20% disparity between the US and that's only going to keep increasing this year. By year end we may be looking at 30%, so where's our regional pricing? How the fuck can they blame us for looking for a better deal elsewhere?

They'll sell anything if there's a way to make money from it, then again it's Bioware so that's not a huge surprise. Wonder if we'll see the "in-game music is only available as DLC" in the future...

If it meant a discount on the game I wouldn't have a problem with that as I ignore or turn off 99% of game music anyway.

Enh. As someone who didn't care for - much less finish - the first two games I'll be waiting for a deep discount on this before I even consider it. The size of the gameworld - and the world itself - look impressive. The fact that it was developed as a console game first has me a lot less impressed. Look forward to people's impressions around here. Especially if anyone who didn't like the first two either and are going to take the plunge.

So an ODRM Theme Park no doubt. No thanks. And really? They're alredy cutting staff when they should be increasing. That is they would be if ED was seeing sales, which it's not given it's price and ODRM model. Way to drop the ball, Braben.

Discovery turned into a pile of crap a decade ago.

Discovery Canada is different - or at leas it was up until a year or two ago.

Like National Geographic. MTV clones of the former MTV channel that ended up not playing music.

On the other hand I assume this is pre-marketing for some forthcoming info on the next Doom.

That's an excellent guess actually. You're absolutely correct. I would not be the least bit surprised to see this scheisse as nothing more than glorified paid advertisements that will be tied in with the games and what not.

I've bought several games from people on G2A and only got one bad key which G2A promptly refunded because I used their service guarantee. So I have nothing but good things to say about them so far.

And how on earth were these keys obtained fraudulently? Was it some Mission Impossible team that broke into the servers, stole a bunch of pre-generated keys, then sold them on the black market? Or it more likely that they were completely legitimate regional keys that were purchased cheap and resold for a tiny profit? I'm guessing it's the latter. Ubisoft could do the sensible thing and bring down the prices on their games a lot faster to avoid this in the first place, but that would make sense. No, instead they'd rather just try and gouge first world gamers. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

That archer is insane!

The guy is impressive I'll grant you, but as someone pointed out, let's see him try even a 1/4 of that stuff kitted out in 50 lbs of armor and another 25 lbs of gear. Plus he's using a tiny recurve bow. Again try any of that stuff with a proper recurve bow or a longbow and it's just not happening. Longbows were almost as tall as the men using them and they planted their arrows in the ground beside them. They also used longswords and daggers for close in fighting. And try holding multiple arrows at once on horseback as it bounces around on an uneven field at a cantor. Just not happening. So yeah he's mastered some neat tricks but doing in the heat of battle in the chaos and armor, etc. probably wouldn't get you too far.

And that study on psychadelics is bunk. Providing someone a few hours escape is not the same thing as fixing their lives - which drives them to escape in the first place. So long as there is poverty there will always be rampant alcohol/drug use and violence.

That egg thing is neato keen.

60K for a plastic prop? Sigh.

And another useless military toy. How many billion did this program cost? And what was the White House saying yesterday saying they can't afford to compete with the private sector in hiring good technology people? Well why not slash a few billion out of the massively over-bloated military budget in that case and get some actual, real value for your money?

Here's the short list to watch on Netflix if you haven't seen them yet:
- Apocalypse Now (haven't seed Redux, so don't know if it's superior. It's much longer though)
- Zodiac
- Dredd
- Fawlty Towers (if you're a John Cleese fan)

No, Redux isn't better. It drags on a lot. The whole bit at the French plantation was just extraneous. Who cares why France, then America got into the war? The story is about one man's journey into the heart of darkness. IMO that was just Francis milking it.

Zodiac? The one with Glyenhal? Yeah that was pretty good. I actually prefer Spike's Summer of Sam for flicks about psychopaths.

Dredd rocks. I own it on Bluray. Hell I even like Sly's version - in spite of Armand Assante trying to ruin it. We need more Dredd/Judge films and TV stuff. Hell, we should be working as a society to replacing police with Judges.

FT? Yeah, not so much. I like Cleese in small doses as far as the Python alumnus goes. Try giving The Brittas Empire - with Chris Barrie of Red Dwarf fame - a go instead.
