Corrupt sleazeball gone only means better things for the IGF. Now they just need to get away from the art=games and walking simulators they've been awarding for the last few years.

It's funny how people are willing to give up their privacy just so they can talk into a microphone and ask stupid questions like what's the weather. At the very least if you're going to be willing to be data mined then you should get something out of it.

Now all those people complaining about privacy concerns raise your hands since you likely use a iphone and it does the same thing.

All I remember is this creep denying or outright deleting negative threads during the beta of d3.


Same. My opinion of them is pretty mediocre.

Windows 10 upgrade resets your default browser to Edge; Mozilla is very unhappy.

Heh, that's small potatoes compared to what they'd do a decade ago.

Windows 10 resets everything on a upgrade, Windows 8 did too, and Windows 7, and Vista, and XP. Then again the shit that mozilla has been doing, the browser being reset is the least of their worries. Maybe less listening to art majors, and removing more bloatware would be a good plan.

I dunno, I enjoyed Rome II, warts and all. Sure it was a bit fucked up on release, some patches later it was a little bit less fucked up. But I never pretended that it had to be anything other than an epic battle simulator with a relatively simple strategic layer thrown in for good measure. I don't really care about historical accuracy and shit like that, and since this is basically fantasy, Im thinking it's perfect for the Total War team...

Still wished they went with the 40K, but this looks pretty good too...

A lot of people had problems at release, I didn't. The stuff missing from Rome 2 compared to Rome is what bugged me. The emperor edition is much, much better though. I've still got nearly 700 hours in Rome 2, so you can say I like it but I'm still soured on it.

I'm gonna guess though that they're going with the high-fantasy stuff instead of 40k first just to see how well it's received by the market. If it's good, they'll roll out a 40k game next year or something along those lines.

Bummer. I thought it'd be here sooner. That's cutting it kind of close to Fallout's release date.

Maybe I can beat it in a month though.

I'm not complaining really. It's a free update for me.

It'll give me something to play around that time. I'm oddly not impressed by what FO4 has been showing so far, and I love the FO series games...I suppose we'll see when it gets closer. FYI for anyone looking to pre-order watch GMG, they've already had a 23% and 25% off sale.

Does that version work in the US or is it region locked?

Not region locked, it's the version we use at work on our testbed machines, I'm in Canada.

Also for anyone interested Windows 10 Is Spying On You: Hereís How To Stop It
FYI all that stuff has been in since Windows 8, the only new one is for wifi contact sharing. The 'MS personalized ad preferences' has been in there since 8 as well, why it's suddenly 'big news' I have no idea.

When a game launches in a worse state than usual, like say Arkham Knight, would that then be a Public Pre-Beta Alpha?

No that would be the intentional leaking of the "internal alpha."

Keeps failing during the installation part. Says Failed, please try again after it finishes the 2.6gb download or whatever it was. Sucks.

Nvidia has been trying to fix that for three weeks now, glad to see they're on top of things.

So there is hope? Really want to finish this story at some point ^^

Yeah there's still hope. Apparently one of the rumors is after all the flak they took from the XIII-1 and 2 for the poor optimization they pushed back XIII-3 to do it right.

They said a month ago it is coming. If it were really coming, there would be a steam listing for this at least 1 to 2 months before release. So definitively not coming in August or September... ;/

There's a listing over on one of the french gaming sites showing a late 2nd or 3rd quarter release for it. Even then, I can't remember if it was 13-1 or 13-2 that didn't show up in SteamDB until 14 days before hand.

I agree with many of you, it's an outstanding game but man if you want to finish it all I hope you have like 500+ hours...LOL
143 hours on my first playthrough and that was completing all the side quests, witcher contracts, and treasure hunts. That didn't include exploring everything though, probably another 30+ hours just for that.

The author's guild probably wants to raise the price of ebooks to even more obscene levels as well. Not going to happen.

Wouldn't surprise me. Ebooks cost next to nothing in terms of production, but they all cost more then a physical copy where I live. Fuck that, and it's the reason why piracy is rampant.

Interesting.. Walmart tried this and it didn't work too well. Of course they tried it in their HQ city of Bentonville which explains why it didn't get much business.

The local "independent" grocer in a nearby retirement community has been doing this for 15 years, they also have to the door delivery service for the last 8 years.

Oh my god. Just stop sucking, cabbies! Stop ripping people off and learn to be fucking competitive, you shitty pieces of human trash. Fucking hell. Most of you fuckers drive like absolute motherfucking shit anyway. I'd be ecstatic to never see another cab-hole on the road again.

Most Uber drivers don't have with chauffeurs licensees or the $6m liability insurance on their vehicles. Both of which are required in Ontario, that massively undercuts their operating costs. Either they get in line and play by the same rules, or they can fuck off. Uber playing the 'but we're a tech company and said rules don't apply' are getting a lesson in reality.
