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.

I would just like a game that's as good as DA1, thanks.
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.

It's more of a simulator than a MMO though. If you're fair to okay at say the stock market, you'll do just fine playing EVE.

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.

I'll call that lucky Blue. We've had 5 days of rain here over in Southern Ontario, it's overcast now and they're calling for even more rain and T-storms today, with more rain tomorrow. I say if you can BBQ something up in the morning do it.

And just so the weather can grind it in...or as my grandfather used to say: "And God said, let Canada be pissed on..." 2 days of sunshine forcast on Monday/tues, with 5 more days of rain. I think May is the new April here.

What, you think faxing them a copy of a driver's license means shit? Anyone over the age of 13 can grab a fake image of one of those, under whatever name and picture they like. That's not security, that's just theater...all at the cost of the customer.
I didn't even need to fax them a copy of mine. I took a photo with my cell phone of my passport and blanked out the serial number on it. And seriously, if a 13yr old has enough time to photoshop up a DL, and use it to hijack an account. Then they're old enough to head off to juvie for their trouble as well.

jacobvandy wrote on May 3, 2014, 03:28:
I've never heard of Blizzard wanting your DL... What use could they possibly have for that? You sure you weren't being phished? Or are you just being facetious?
Issued government photo ID is needed if your account's been compromised, and then they'll release it back to you. Doesn't matter what it is(DL, healthcard - we use photo ID for that here, passport, LCBO card, native card, etc), but that's all you need.

Well, since I can no longer access my battle.net account unless I send them a copy of my driver's license, I won't be dealing with Blizzard again.

I guess I should have said "screw 'em", I don't care how much they spend on customer support for stolen accounts.

Really? That's your big problem in dealing with Blizzard is them taking account security something on the serious side? Geeze, imagine if it was something actually important.

But Blizzard did make Lost Vikings 2...

Anyway, The Lost Vikings, such a classic! Man I loved that game way back. I will have to play it again, although who knows how it will hold up.
Yeah but it wasn't as good as the first.

No shit? Lost vikings, I haven't played that since I think the SNES. I always wished they'd made another game based on that.

Oculus Rift, that thing that existed long before Carmack joined the company?

Good luck with that.
In terms of IP law, it doesn't matter. If you write something that's proprietary for the company you were working for, they own it--unless it's in your contract clause that you retain ownership. You can't "take it with you" when you go to a new company. That's where a lot of people get caught up, this isn't exactly something earth shattering and happens more often than people think.

Only ever bought two seasons passes for games, one was for SR4, the other for BS:I. Worth it on both cases, especially when they were on sale. Can't say I'd do that for this, probably easier just to wait for the GOTY version to come out.

If you miss 80s coke, not sure where you live, but here in Minneapolis and the metro area there are Mexican Mercados EVERYWHERE. They import a TON of their products and they have Mexican Coke filling the shelves. I grab em all the time. Heaven.
I live in the SWON. Used to be that you could go over to Detroit and hit Little Mexico and find some every now and then, but last time I went over the store I used to go to had shut their doors.

Oh and for anyone who uses Xbox-360 live stuff, dealzon posted a link for a 12mo sub for $37.41.

I always like Dr. Pepper made with sugar cane as well. It's pretty damned tasty, and coke, like they had back in the 80's when it was made using actual sugar was nice too.
