I would be very careful about using dodgy cdkey-reseller sites like that. Not least because sometimes their source of CDKeys are actually stolen.

But also because this:

Of course, if you look at G2A they have keys for each particular region. A shady keysite for example would be like allcdkeys where they "gift" you a copy, or you require a VPN to get it.

So have any other sites admitted to it as well?

Haven't seen anything yet, but the names in milo's email dump are legit, and cpt'n asshat(kyle) openly admits that he regrets nothing about it. Oh wait, he regrets something now--since he posted that story. It seems like the other guys are laying low and hoping it all blows over. Sorry guys, it didn't work with journolist it's not going to work here.

Is g2a.com legit? Looks like one of those Chinese/Russian key stores, so... But those prices are really to good to be true/legit.

Legit. It's where I got my key from, it's working fine with no problems. Also where I got half a dozen other games no problems with them either. I preordered on the 19th at 2am, got my key at 4am. Got divinity: OS from there, again no problems. As for the game? Enjoying it quite a bit, only as far as the second mission but I have zero complaints except the audio related crash on exiting. Looks like they fucked something up when they compiled the final build relating to mono audio, but it doesn't affect the gameplay itself.

Graphics good, story good, customization good. Randomness of lewts good(uses a unique seed when reloading, so you never have the same items in a box/safe/etc). Story is in the mature range, no shortage of people telling you to go fuck yourself either. I sadly don't have toaster repair, but that's for my next playthrough I think.

Ya know, good or bad it doesn't matter too much. If the FF games sell like hotcakes as they've been doing, they'll continue to bring them to the PC and I'm okay with this.

Well, they're just reporting what a couple of people said. This is a typical he-said-she-said story with no research involved.
That's pretty endemic in msm reporting these days, just look at journolist. It's gotten to the point that I only read opinion and editorials written by the olde time staff at some news papers then go read about what they wrote about and figure it out on my own.

I didn't say anything about them being liberal/conservative. The issue is that Breitbart is known for taking things out of context, posting hoaxes, and posting things that are completely made up. There is apparently no requirement that there be sources or legitimate proof for anything they post.

And, yes, I'd say that HuffPo is probably pretty close to the liberal analogue and should also be taken with a (huge fucking) grain of salt. HuffPo's more a gross celebrity gossip rag than it is a deliberate spreader of misinformation.

And everything any site in the Gawkerverse posts should be vetted externally, too. They are extremely well known for jumping the gun and/or trying to stir up trouble.
No you implied it based off the sites name. And if you're going to go with the "posting hoaxes and so on" then there is no site that's safe. After all, cnn, msnbc, abc, cbs, fox, usatoday, wapo, and on and on and on have all been caught by the same thing.

Anything from gawker related media should be ignored, they're the parent arm of sites like jezebel and kotaku.

Hrm, I am tempted to buy that. where is g2a based, and I assume you have used them a couple of times? Any weird issues with their website/service?

Apparently Wasteland 2's official release date is tomorrow, is the Steam price going to stay 60 dollars?

*EDIT* Apparently based out of Poland. Still, I assume you've used them before, any issues?

Yeah poland, I've never had a problem with them. Half a dozen games ordered as pre-orders via them and I've gotten them all just fine. I tossed in a pre-order for it last night and got the key two hours later. I've had more problems with GMG and keys being late or given out after release then I have with g2a.

Sure hope the party size is bigger than 2.
I'm sure it will be. In the original you could have up to 5 or 6, right?
You can almost bet it will be, I seem to remember them saying a while back that the party size would be comparable to the previous game or something similar.

Well, take things on their merit, but also consider the source.
You realize that anyone can write for breitbart no matter their political persuasion right? As long as it's verifiable, sourced and coherent. Should I start posting "look at the source" every time blue posts an article from Huffpo, abc, msnbc, or cnn? Well actually I should, especially now that we know we're dealing with a journolist from gaming we should also include kotaku, polygon, ars, and half a dozen other sites. They've confirmed that the list exists, they confirmed that they post on it, some of the emails themselves show exactly how they're attempting to collude, and which way they want to push the narrative. It's journolist for gaming.

Out of journolist itself, people were screaming "look at the source..." "but...it's not really like that" and "how do we defend our collusion..." and screaming right to the end. Until they were fired for ethical violations with regards to publication.

Oh, come on. Look at the source. It's frigging Breitbart.
"I'm unable to dispute the content of the article, so I'll attack them for being a conservative leaning website." Do you work for Kotaku? Since 4 other sites did the same thing today with regards to Christina Sommers AEI video.

wouldnt be surprised if this whole gamergate bullshit gave birth to a new crop of indie shock game devs
If they can throw off the collusion that's fine by me. After all, after Christina Sommers did her video the other day they fired off 4 nearly identical articles all starting with "conservative" because she works for AEI...never mind that she's a democrat.

Does anyone actually care? I suppose if I thought gaming journalism was actual journalism or for reals I might.
Well...yes. After all, the same people crying "the death of gamers" are the same ones pissing in your soup and telling you it's an improved flavor. They're also the ones crying over content in the games you're playing, and trying to shape the media to their view--not the view of what gamers want.

Reminds me of JournoList. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JournoList
That's because it is the same as journolist. Collusion, corruption, arrogance, deciding what stories to write and in what tone. What stories not to cover? Exactly the same...but don't worry guys...#gamergate isn't about corruption and collusion they keep telling us.

But it comes with a "Cable for Windows".

That could mean anything!
It's a $0.23 USB cable that's grey, and has a MS certified sticker on it, that they're charging $29.99 for.

What happens with steam account once you die though? Can family take it over? Or do you have to plan ahead and make sure your passwords are accessible to whoever is left after you? And how would you facilitate that without it being a huge security risk?

This stuff doesn't worry me much yet, but I feel like it is stuff that is important to know. With more and more of our lives being digital.....
Good question, my will states that ownership of my steam library transfers to my sister and best friend. Should they both want it the number of games will be randomly divided between both parties. I'm sure that someone else has included this in their own will already and it'll probably hit the courts before I die.

Case law is going to catch up shatteringly fast to this without a question. It'll follow that consumer and federal laws(or state laws) will catch up fast once it starts hitting the courts as well.

My favorite part of their letter is:

"No group of authors as diverse or prominent as this has ever come together before in support of a single cause."

Yea... a cause that's about how much money you're making... real noble "cause". hehe.
Yeah that's pretty much what I thought, and they wonder why ebook piracy is through the roof. Gee, it might have something to do with you charging the same price for a non-physical copy as you do for a digital copy.

If #gamergate is just about journalism, why is Anita even factoring in? Why are people addressing her at all? She's not a journalist.
Journalists quote her, she writes opinion pieces and attempts to claim that they're journalistic in value. Something you may have forgotten, is media using ideas of another in order to bolster their own story make them included within it.
