Well with the new directx requiring windows 8.1, wouldn't surprise me if MS started sponsoring games if they require that crap. More shoehorning ahead.
Meh. The new DX has less features than the update of OGL from 3.0 to 3.1. And what it "does" do, is already covered via drivers from both AMD and nVidia. And really the "tiled resource" isn't anywhere near as good as AMD's mantle system.

Not just this game. The entire game industry has been retardedly-hooked on "idle animations" for WAY too long. Motherfuckers cannot stand still, it's just too "unrealistic".

Uh...I don't know anyone who doesn't breath in real life anyway. And since the zombie apocolypse isn't upon us, there are indeed people who are "animated in life" too. Really if you get that bent out of shape over idle animations, then grab a book.

Undoubtedly its something with win 8.1 and xBone. Probably something along the lines of "you upgrade to 8.1 or you can't even play the games we sponsor"
Considering the lack of support for GFWL, not only from developers but gamers I'm surprised that it lasted as long as it did. It's easy to shoehorn people into something when it's your market, but when the market is what people decide they want to put up with, then things change quickly.

Do they all need to look like they're having an asthma attack? I can see they still haven't fixed their cheesy animations.
Considering it's still beta? Not too worried about it.

Those smart chip-enabled "tap and go" cards are the WORST thing ever...
Those are RFID, not chipped. Two different things altogether, we have both up here in Canada. RFID is limited to $50, and chipped requires a pin.

I tossed a link up a few days ago, for Xcom:EW for $26.99 it includes a $4 cashback or $6 GMG credit. If you can't stand $22.99 or $20.99 well that's your problem.

The game was ready to play at release. Some people weren't happy with how it was at release though.

Heads up, GMG has Xcom: Enemy Within for 10% off plus a $4 cashback, or $6 GMG credit. Making the total $22.99 or 20.99 depending.

Fek. I'm gonna get those prices right...eventually, damn pain meds.

Says something about the FBI in general. If they can force a private company to try and do this, it means that nearly all SSL certificates aren't worth anything.

Gee there Red Cross, most gamers not only have plenty of disposable income, but regularly donate to worthy causes. I guess they really want to tick people off so their donation pool dry's up.

Urm... Finish Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk first, k? plz? How many games are you guys going to be working on simultaneously?
Well if they're getting close to finishing out Witcher 3 or the cyberpunk game, Witcher 3 which is supposed to be out next year(probably early), and the Cyberpunk game in 2015. This shouldn't be too much of a surprise. Better that they have new contracts lined up to keep them working, instead of floundering and the studio going under.

I haven't had a chance to play the first one yet. Well I'm sure that I'll have some free time the next 3 months while on vacation.

Oh someone was looking for a new videocard. Newegg has the XFX Double D 7950 on for $194/w rebate. Includes 4 games.

Fuck a duck! That's scary about Sysco. Virtually every restaurant uses them to a greater or lesser degree. If all of that is true the US and Canadian governments need to step in and kick some major ass pronto!

I'm not really surprised at this. Not in the least, I had friends who worked at Sysco who complained about this over a decade ago and were ignored by inspectors. I've lost touch with said friends, most are in western canada now driving for the oil patch. But, anyone who knows someone in the transportation industry whether it be food, chemicals, or even raw materials will tell you that "shady shit" does indeed go on, and it doesn't matter where or what.

But according to the report officials on both sides of the border are now investigating, which is good.

password locks or not, there are quite a few game apps out there that purposely are designed to get as much money as possible from you as easily as possible.
Yeah, still not seeing a problem here. If it's not illegal, then I couldn't care less. And ethical, meh. Ethical comes down to each persons opinion.

Many years ago, my parents used to lock us (their kids) out of HBO when I was young. My brother found the password or guessed it or something, and shared it with me. Many R rated movies were to be had. These days we would have emptied their bank account.

I don't trust apps anymore because of all the shit they want you to buy and how aggressive they are with it. They don't even let you buy the game anymore so you can ignore it. And if you forget just that one time and let your guard down, BAM.. $1500 in charges for some shitty pixels. My kids do not have my password to the store. They have app purchases turned off. And I've completely removed them from the network. But I sure as hell still worry about it.

Yeah, didn't have that problem with my parents. I simply asked them for what I wanted to watch, R rated or not. It all comes down to teaching your kids to ask for something instead of them beleiving that they should go behind your back.

Difference is a kid can't go up to the supermarket machines and just push a button and mommy and daddy's credit card is credited, or their phone carrier accounts.
Password locks? No device tying? Not really difficult to figure out.

So does that mean they're going to remove gumball machines, and ride-type toys at supermarkets, and malls? After all those encourage children to buy, ride, or enjoy themselves too.
