My money's on "extremely overhyped." I love that the PC is finally getting the recognition it deserves from the terrified console community though. Rightly so. Consoles have never had the power to compete, so they pretend like PC gaming is "dead" to make themselves feel better.
Lot of console fanboys have finally clued in that PC's really are better for gaming. It's the die hard people who haven't clued in that a 2 year old GPU is more powerful than "next gen consoles."

According to that reddit thread, uPlay is region-free. Tempting. I'll wait for release reviews.
Find out soon enough, I already contacted their support and got pretty much the same answer as the other poster. If the key doesn't work, to simply contact them and they'll exchange it.

i hope Windows 9 is 3D (and no i do not mean stereoscopic, i mean a 3D UI/UX and not 2D interface.)
Won't happen until there's widespread adaption of 3D UI's, and the requirement to wear shit on your face is gone. That along with the headaches, eye strain, migraines, and who the fuck knows what else.

It was cold and rainy yesterday, and it's cold and sunny today. Bleh. At least its supposed to warm up by next Saturday. Sigh. The winter that would not go away.

And lol at the woman who remarks that the lions killing the antelope is "sick". So wtf are you on a safari tour in that case?
We got all of 3 days above 20C here in SW Ontario, and one day where it was 28C in the last week. It's been below 20C for the last 3 days, and will be until monday. I get the feeling that this summer is going to be one of those unusually "wet and cold" ones. They almost always are when spring doesn't start until almost the may 24 weekend.

I'd hate to see what she'd do when a brown bear chases a deer onto the road and savages it in front of traffic.

They stated that the average bundle is now 189 channels, of which people watch about 17 at most. And they wonder why people are cutting the cord because they're not offering a la carte.
The last time I watched TV was when I was traveling down to Florida to do some estate work for my grandmother when she was dying. I stopped in two places Dry Ridge, KY(satellite) and Dalton, GA.(cable), between 90-100 channels, and not a damned thing on but reality TV shows even on Discovery, Military, and NatGO. I think I watched both for an hour while when I got back from eating dinner, and promptly got on my laptop and played FTL for 3 hours.

The industry is killing itself, and they have no idea why people are cutting the cord. But they think that it has something to do with people being cheap. Not that there's nothing but crap on TV, hell when I was in Florida, the only thing I watched in Zephyrhills was the local Fox and ABC stations, and that was for the news.

To toss in, I don't know why companies in the US aren't following the lead of Teksavvy up here in Canada. They've got a nifty program called Zap the cap, basically, you get a reduction in speed during primetime(8pm-12am), and you get unlimited on any plan you're on. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to. You also get free downloads between 2am-8am. For me, I don't use my internet during primetime, since my primetime is 12am-9am. Well I do have an idea why, you guys don't have the competition you used to. I remember when you could get DSL for $9/mo, or cable for $19/mo back before they said that incumbents no longer had to sell to 3rd parties. Up here in Canadaland we only got rid of that in the last few years.

ViRGE wrote on May 14, 2014, 21:29:
Has any other game gone gold with less than 2 weeks to go? It seems to me that they'd need longer than that to do pressing, packaging, and shipping. Most games get a month for that.
To be realistic, "going gold" has pretty much died in the industry especially with how much stuff has gone digital. Go back over the last year and you'll find that the number of titles that even get a gold announcement are very small now. Hell Tropico 5 will be out in just over a week, and we haven't seen a GG announce, but I know that the game has already shipped from distributors to retailers.

There's 10 times more crap to put up with on the pc compared to console.
Really? Pay extra for some services that you get for free on the PC, pay extra again to play a MMO that you don't have to pay extra for on a PC? Where's that extra crap again.

Heh. Wonder if their monthly free games will get better, now that they're going the Plus route of requiring a subscription to access them?

Wishful thinking nin, I'm actually surprised people put up with that crap instead of going to a PC.

Have they said yet whether or not they'll support mods? If they don't it won't be good as the first.

C'mon dude, really? Yes, we had our first PCs in the 1970s. And my Suncom gamepad that I still have that has a keyboard throughput connector dates from the mid 90s. Still, that's 20 years of PC gamepads. Gamepads for PCs are hardly a new thing at all. And like Alamar says, if you're porting console games that were designed to be played on gamepads to PC, you will likely have the best experience on a gamepad. They're cheap ($35) and durable (last years). There's no reason not to have one. Seriously.

All hail the gravis gamepad, and it's slow breakdown and destruction. I can't remember how many of those things I went through playing tie fighter and x-wing.

We were much better off in the 50s-70s.

When the money is spread amongst a large group of people, it gets spent.
When it's concentrated amongst a small group of people, it gets hoarded.

The wealth disparity is literally strangling our economy, not to mention the issue of the actions many take to acquire more wealth.
Ah the 50's through the 70's, where unemployment rates were low, and you could quit a job at 8am and have a new one by 10am. Before there was global competition, and companies had to buy/make/manufacture everything from bottom to top in the same country.

You do realize that a LIVING wage - not MINIMUM wage - makes for a much stronger economy, right? No, of course you don't.
*snort*

Do tell when there has ever been a living wage in the US. I'll tell you right now, the answer is never, the only reason why there's a minimum wage is to ensure that entry level jobs like...fast food, get paid at a point where it's survivable. And let's be realistic, you can survive on it. It's not a career. Hell I know people who live in ~$12k/year in Canada that's disability. And that's half the earnings of someone who'd make it as minimum wage working straight. And I've been there myself.

I look at it like this, if they want to wildcat and strike. It just means that they can get their asses fired and someone else can take their jobs. Last time I looked you guys were in full shit-mode regarding jobs.

The sky is blue, water is wet, and Hunters are IMBA. What else is new?
They forgot to look to see how other card games dealt with IMBA issues? I played MtG at a non-professional level, but I was making money at it(going back almost 20 years ago). And while there was "builds of the week." You could still beat them using off the shelf cards easily enough.

Nothing CCP will ever do will make this game newbie friendly.... unless they make it an SP game or allow private servers.
I thought the game with plenty newbie friendly to begin with. I think you're looking for uber casual friendly though.
