How could this have failed? Perhaps it's just a subconscious nod to the devs true calling: House Keeping

That's easy, all the consultants they hired for PR and so on were the same ones that pushed the "gamers are dead" articles in august of last year. Funny huh? I guess gamers *do* have to be your audience if you want to make money.

Crystal clear..

apartheid
[uh-pahrt-hahyt, -heyt, uh-pahr-tahyt, -teyt]
noun
1.(in the Republic of South Africa) a rigid former policy of segregating and economically and politically oppressing the nonwhite population.
2. any system or practice that separates people according to color, ethnicity, caste, etc.
Seems to me then that mechanical apartheid is appropriately named. Since that is the primary theme of the new DX game.

Except, nobody is going to see it that way even if you were right about the prices.

The bundles are entered as separate products in Steam which allows them to set a higher price point and therefore not illegal.

Actually Bestbuy here in Canada were slapped with a fine a few years ago for doing exactly that. It was bundling extras into other things, just like this. There have also been clothing stores that did the same thing, and were slapped with fines for doing it.

As for where I got it? Those would have been the prices that I saw previous to pre-post summer sale. I'm also in Canada.

It's illegal to give away free stuff in Canada? That seems to contradict some of the things I've heard.
The price previously was $59.99, the price was raised to $79.99, then it was stated that "free items" were given away at the higher price, with the discounted price being exactly the same as the previous list price. This falls under materially false, and misleading representation of the sale price. Thus illegal, under canadian law.

Except they didn't change the price of GTA V... They're offering special bundles that include other games and/or in-game cash for free. Don't waste your time and theirs.

Except doing so is illegal, and that's the job of the competition bureau.

I am tempted to get Valkyria Chronicles, but watching Let's Plays it looks really simplistic. Also the story looked full of every Janime cliche in the book.

I thought the same thing, I picked up about 6mo ago for $7 and it's an incredibly great game. More-so for the story than anything else, but the combat is fun as hell. It's worth the $5 or so that it's selling for right now.

FYI for any canucks, you should be filing a complaint with the competition bureau on the pricing change. It's illegal to raise a price, and claim a discounted price like that. And before someone goes hur-dur-dur-america, since Steam/Valve sell a product in Canada directly to Canadians, in Canadian pricing, they're directly subject to the same laws.

If only they'd shut down the CBC - or make taxpayers opt in to paying for it, and allow others to opt out.

They've been trying for a couple of years, and every time it happens the shit weasels in Toronto and Vancouver start throwing a hissyfit because 'muh culture' or something.

The original Deus Ex is on sale on GoG. The ReVision mod is on the cusp of being released and looks to be the definitive way to play.

Okay that's nice very nice. Thanks for the link!

Fuck you, Bell-end Media president. You luddite moron.


I think you summed it up pretty well. Of course for those that don't know, this is the same company that owns CTV and was recently caught pushing agendas in the news. I'm sure there's a lot more people out there not crying over Bell.

Hahaha! Oh wait, you're serious. *eyeroll*

Actually they're pretty much right, though they should have said gaming journalism. Or have you failed the notice the proliferation of 'ads as news' with companies shilling it out, either not disclosing or stating as such in a font so small that you can't read it. There's a reason why the FTC is going after sites and it's not because they're going to pat them on the head, while telling them they're doing a GREAT JOB!

You will play a male character and your character narrates the story. Fuck Bethesda if they do this to Fallout. I really hope this is not true. I will fucking mini nuke their HQ if they do this.

There were people saying the same shit with FO3, and it turned out to be wrong. I guess we'll see, but you can bet that if it's true there will be hordes of angry people.

So I am the 3rd person here that... actually is interested in this?

I actually, and I am nearly ashamed to say this... really liked FF13-2 ;/ I also want Lightning Returns

I loved the hell out of FF13-2, I finished another playthrough just before Witcher 3 came out, but I need to spend the time grinding out the rest of the stuff yet. FF13, was one of those...ugh...this shit again with every fight. My sister has them for her PS3 and keeps going on about how she enjoyed LR, well they've got another ~20 something days before spring goes poof. Knowing them they'll just dump it out like they did with 4 and 5.

Probably only considered dismal if it was thought to be something as powerful as WoW. On the other hand, it's quite busy in the game and they are still getting in the Steam top 10 sales list at least once a month.

I've played my fair share of MMO's, Meridian 59, UO(couple of months) EQ, AC, WoW, STO, KoTOR: Online, I didn't like the game at all, not a single bit. I run across that occasionally something about the gameplay, or graphics, or something just grinds me the wrong way. Folks here on the site really recommended Just Cause and Just Cause 2 to me--I can't stand either one of them.

Now if they'd hurry up and finish releasing Lightning Returns I'd be happier. It's not really unexpected, since they've already ported them to the PS4 and Xbone.

What was the name back then , hmmm ahh yes a DEMO

Hell, Origin does that somewhat with titles. I've still got the full version of Sims 4 sitting there and I haven't played it. It has a 48hr demo window on it, interestingly enough Origin seems to be able to do it with their tech support sometimes too. My buddy wanted to try DA:I before he bought it, contacted support and they setup a 48hr trial window for him.

Maybe I'm just jaded. I work in the oil and gas industry, the stuff she was dealing with is nothing. My coworker in accounts payable told me once that one of the shop guys just walked into her office and offered her $1000 for sex. Like it was no big thing. She said no, and he just walked out, no biggie.

You're not jaded, I worked as an apprentice 20 years ago. I had the secretary of the company we worked for offer me something similar. I was 15 at the time(AoC was 14 then she was 23). Did a couple of jobs out in Alberta a few years ago, one at a coal mine, same thing happened and a friend who works for Telus had a similar proposition from two different women at a government office. It's sure not limited to men.

As for Herr Pao, half the jury I believe was asian female and if I remember right they were not thrilled about her.
