That said, if you're talking about the xfire player drop, it's definitely there and has been the central point of focus when it comes to pointing out the drop in players. While it does have some validity as a tool (the only one we have) to measure a player base, not everyone uses xfire. Honestly, I don't know anyone of my friends who have it but that obviously doesn't mean nobody uses it.
Yeah I don't know anyone who uses it either, and considering xfire is a craptastic crashfest with D3, for most people. That could very well be another reason why it's dropping off, their overlay causes the game to crash.

To be honest, I doubt there is a source on the 85% number. Except the one that was pulled out of his ass.

People where asking for actual content, not pseudo not-random-at-all levels and quest locations always in the same fracking place.
That I can by-far agree with, a random map generator would really seriously help out.

Did I miss something? People whined that they couldn't level to 99, you are now leveling to 60, then can level to basically 99 via paragon levels. Isn't that pretty much what people were asking for...

Well, in another post that questions my status as a lifetime carrier of the 'Hardcore Gaming Club' card, I have to ask, what made New Vegas better than the original Fallout3? Personally, I found the original to be...err, a little boring. At least in the beginning. And the fact that everything is a greenish gray/brown...*shudder*...what does NV bring to the table?


=-Rigs-=
Fo3 was weak, no question about it. But NV? Story, content. The story itself properly fills out, you're not "dad left the vault, go find him" the story is. "This shit is bad, the world is bad." It's harsh, brutal, who tried to kill you and why. Fuck everyone else, find your own path. It's as close to the original bad shit as you can get in the world, even with the NCR just next door. Don't forget that Obsidian is what's left of Black Isle, pretty much everyone is still there. Including the story writers, and it shows in the story itself.

Characters are more fleshed out. Has a closer FO/FO2 appeal to it, the general zaniness it there, especially with the Wild wasteland trait. The one weakness that NV has, is the lack of dungeon crawling(sewer crawling), but hopefully the next time they'll have a better change at that. I'd really like to see them do something with the Boneyard in it, or San Fransisco.

Imo, if you don't have it? Pick it up when the ultimate pack goes on sale with all the DLC. You won't regret it, usually drops it down into the $15-19 range. I still play it, I have nearly 700 hours into it.

KOTOR 2 Redeux?
No. The things that were cut, show that Obsidian budgeted their time exceptionally wisely for what time they did have. And it also shows exactly how badly consoles are dragging PC's down.

A basic 500ml plastic bottle of coke here (UK) is about $1.70.

Not a big fan of sugary fizzy drinks personally.
Almost all of us in North America can only get our pop made with fructose/glucose or a combination of both in it. Finding it made with cane sugar or something similar like beet sugar is rare. Another good find, if you run across it? Dr. Pepper made from cane sugar.

Oh and that egg yolk thing. I call bunk, it's about every 4 years or so they go through the "doom, not doomed, doomed, not doomed" thing. 40,000 or more years we've been eating eggs. It hasn't killed us yet, though everything else has.

Like I said before, if we can't get streaming video to work without a hitch here in Silicon Valley, streaming gaming will never work. If this VC wants to do something useful with his money, he should put it in a barrel and set it on fire...at least he'll get heat out of it.
Buying a timeshare would have been a better option.

I own shares of Blizz.

Oooh ouch. I feel bad for Blizz stockholders. I mean, how many years now has that stock been virtually at a stand still?
Back in april of this year, it was matching the S&P in terms of growth after the crash of '08, then it looked like people bailed hard after vevendi decided they wanted to start splitting up the company. And it's still in recovery territory. But it's up 2% for the day.

Lands of Lore man...Lands of Lore. The first two were freaking brilliant. The third one...well not so much. But if you never played them, you missed a seriously good pair of games.

Follow up question to my last one. Who here would look at the title for the game and go "Ooh! I have to buy that because Rebellion made it!".
Actually I think most people would flee if they saw a game made by Rebellion.

Yeah...I think 1903 called, and every communist movement since with the raised fist has them beat on that. What next? They're going to sue blizzard because Rayors Raiders has a picture with iconic rebellion imagery in it?

Leaking a sale rumor to increase stock prices when approaching a quarterly report or shareholders meeting...I am sure EA would never stoop to that level...

haha

I'm guessing that this is their attempt to get a slight boost in their stocks, but I'm guessing that their quarterly will be under by about 4-10% from estimates, especially after the old republic fiasco.

You'd think the 8 years of service badge would get you in something like this, but I suppose someone that signed up a few months ago, and linked their account to Facebook is more worthy.
Sure would make more sense wouldn't it? I have no interest in facebook or anything like that. Gee, sure was nice that some of us grew up in the age of the 80's and 90's when they said, don't post your private infoz on the BBS's and intertubez.
