Hmmm, I didn't remember it. Anyway, glad it's cancelled, since Ravenholm was the worst fucking part of HL2.

Really I loved it, probably because not only was annoying but it scared the hell out of me, and very few things do these days. But I understand the whole "fsking hate it" bit, especially after my 4th playthrough.

Might also have something to do with more recent EU ruling on game sales/trading that Steam got hit with.

Don't you mean to play anything at all? Nice avatar. PCMR = Win.

Even after not playing most of those games for years, I still remember them backward and forward.
That's kinda the nice thing about games that make an impact. I must have played BG and BG2, 30 or 40 times each and I still find new and interesting things.

Being realistic, they also skip Canada, though we're usually rated as the same and included in US sales numbers. Our largest group of sales is online, either ordering digitally or ordering physical goods online.

Lol I love when kids throw the word liberal media around, just parroting off crap they hear from other people, like it's some sort of insult. It's funny because most of the media is owned by conservative corporations.
Uh ... you might want to go look that up. The media is owned by major democrat backers and donors. Fox, is the exception.

Steam was the answer to a problem, consoles don't have that problem.
A problem that consoles don't have currently. Though give it a few years as publishers push for their own online distribution platform for consoles and see what happens.

Stop being dense. We're perfectly free to say that we don't think people should be able to make jokes about rape or make bigoted statements without being mocked and losing sales for it.
No one is saying that the government should arrest anyone making a joke about rape or bigoted speech. And, hell, that isn't free speech.
Except thats exactly what's happening now isn't it? Note "hate speech laws" and "human rights councils."

Two things you need to understand about free speech before you make an ass about yourself whining about it:
1) Freedom of speech means freedom from the government, not private entities or individuals. If I go into someone's house and call their mother a whore they're free to throw me out
Well no, that's not correct. Free speech applies to the general public to state whatever they want, it gives other members of the public to state what they want. Even to the point where public members may restrict your speech--though if you started saying it in front of their house/building/business that would be legal. It's meant to stop the government from running roughshod over people for saying whatever they want.

2) Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from repercussions of that speech. We have endless laws, civil and criminal, that penalize you for saying something stupid. If I write a book about how you enjoy killing kittens, you can sue me for it. If I yell "fire" in an airplane I can go to jail for it (technically you do not have the freedom to do this as it isn't protected speech.) Generally, the government can't stop you from saying something protected, but they can penalize you for it
In general it doesn't true, then again if you did write said book, that would be libel, maybe. Unless the author stated that that section was a literal fabrication. In which case, you fall right back to free speech. Yelling "fire in X" is different, and is a being that it endangers the public at large(see public mischief). And anytime the government penalizes you for saying something, you don't have freedom of speech. There is a fine line between endangering the public, and writing something/saying something as a literal fabrication to get a rise out of people. The latter *is* being penalized more and more these days. Even though it was considered free speech at one time, and it's all to protect someone's sensibilities.

I'm guessing Businesswire exists to allow businesses to self-publish advertising as if it were a news release. For a fee.
Businesswire has been like that for 5-6 years. Then again so has /.

Perhaps he is right, unless you are in closed beta or getting news on closed beta, how are we to know?
Well I was apparently a "high chance" of getting in the closed beta, and am still waiting. Must be pretty small numbers at this point that they've let in.

Any word on importing saved games?
Yep. Supports imports from previous games.

Oh and for anyone looking foreward to the new Total War: Rome game, the original Gold edition is on steam for $1 for the next ~15hrs.

So.. no, they won't win.
Not necessarily, it comes down to the terms of the asset buyout among other things, including state laws.

Yeah. We're not really high on the shill priority list.
True, which means that the chances of dev's or people from companies we like/enjoy/etc are more likely to actually pop in, shoot the shit, and give us a heads up on how a product is doing/fixed/etc(see ME2 bugs that were stamped out on ME3) or even give us a heads up before news goes live on discounted titles(see Sins: Rebellion for instance).

We definitely know there are Microsoft shills here too, not very surprising. Basically anyone who likes Windows 8 and Xbox One is pretty much guaranteed to work for Microsoft.
Yeah...well xbox one I couldn't care less about. Windows 8? It's not bad, and I do like it. Especially the autorestore feature for a nuked install. Start8 fixes the menu problem. Oh and if you think I'm a paid shill, I've had an account on here since before said companies thought of shills. Note the UID, there aren't many regular posters in the sub 3500 category these days, then again...with your ID in the 56k range...you could be a shill. Just a very cleaver one.

After the mess they inherited from the Harris junta? Yeah, they did. And in case you haven't been paying attention for the last decade or so they at least left us in great shape nationally speaking.
Yes, Harris did a good job. Half the problem though was they weren't though enough in gutting out the waste in provincial agencies, we lost too many lower-end people while middle and upper management protected themselves in the shuffle. And of course, the province we actually doing quite well you might remember. Especially the number of businesses that were remaining. Though if you want to place any blame for the loss of businesses, you'll do best to remember NAFTA aka the "fair trade act" despite it's name.

Oh, and if you haven't been paying attention to the liberals currently. They've successfully managed to drive the entire province into the ground. With businesses fleeing due to high taxes, and electricity prices. And of course their insane "green energy" program. And if we want to jump back to the liberals before harris where they did exactly the same thing, and decided that blowing so much money that it will take a generation to pay it off. Though they weren't as bad as the NDP before them, who successfully managed to drive the province into debt so fast it'll take three to four generations to pay off that debt alone.

Then again, if the media wasn't in the tank for the liberals up here. We'd be seeing them attacking them for the half dozen on-going scandals from Ornge to the power plants, to Caledonia.
