Some people charge $59.99 for that and call it Modern Warfare.

I don't watch them, but I at least knew of them. Someone posted this on my FB wall once though and I *love* this...

The Breaking Bad advertising's been in for more than that... this week a copy of it was sitting on a shelf at the top of a pile of games during the fight scene.

Gotta admit.. I dislike seeing Blue's dip into tabloid headlines, but whatever.

I'm always interested in opinions on editorial policy. First I'll assume by headlines, you mean the story itself, as

"Dead Island Maker Gives Leading Lady A 'Feminist Whore' Skill"

Seems pretty tabloid, but

"Dead Island 'Private Joke' Goes Public"

Does not, though maybe I'm not objective.

Presuming I'm correct about that, does that mean in your opinion I should have ignored this altogether?

Yes, I wasn't criticizing the actual headline, but instead the topic. Hence my "Film at 11" to emphasize I'm talking about the subject itself.

Yes, it was dumb of the developers to put what they did in the actual code, even if it wasn't mean to be released to the public.. but this is just office humor (and the fact that it happened probably means they have a loose / possibly fun work environment).

Making this a major headline does nothing good for the developer, and just draws the ire of overly sensitive / armchair critical types towards them.

Now if you want to post this as news, go ahead.. I'm just expressing my opinion that I find this attention grabbing / substance lacking type news to be the equivalent of "Tom Cruise crashes random party. Ends up a total cock block! Turn to page 3!!", or something you'd see on Fox news like their bit on ME being a porn simulator.

Got to agree with these comments. Also btw, you do know that you can turn off the auto pausing for the combat right? I turned it off and had a much better time playing the game and it was a lot more fun without the constant pausing.

I think he just meant how you could hit space to pause combat at anytime in KOTOR. I doubt anyone left the auto-pause per round on.

Well I enjoyed WoW to begin with, and I'm not saying it's just like WoW in every respect.. but if that's not your kind of gig, then yeah.. this game might not be your thing.

If you enjoyed WoW or other similar MMO's *at all* you should definitely give it a look.
(Sorry I can't say more)

I still have an eye on Guild Wars 2 as well, but since that doesn't have a monthly sub it's no sweat having both. They're each going to offer great things in their own ways, imo.

News Comments > On Origin Data-Mining
47. Re: On Origin Data-Mining Aug 24, 2011, 10:35 Drayth
 
One thing about Origin I'm kind of pleasently surprised with is I'm able to download a game; copy the installed game directory; uninstall the original download; then install my copied game folder anywhere else that I like.

When I did this with DA:O it then asked me for my Origin login credentials the first time I re-ran it in it's new location. That registered it with Origin and now I don't need to have Origin running, nor deal with a disc check when starting the game (have a store bought copy).

This is actually better than Steam in my book. I can install where I want, and don't need to have Origin running to play. This'll be different with BF3 though, I'm sure, due to the multi-player aspects.

One more thing.. when I put in my CD key for BF:BC 2 that I had from Steam it let me choose the digital deluxe version, so I got the Vietnam DLC for free.

The Witcher showed everyone that if you stick a head in a box you can charge an extra 100 for it.

..though in their case I think they were mainly shooting for trying something different.

This CE seems kind of weak. The dragon's not bad looking, but there's hardly anything else CE worthy.. esp for that much.

-Edit.. how much was the Bioshock CE? That was like $80 tops, I think.

I've been trying for over a month to get Blizzard to decouple my account from my now dead authenticator app on my now dead droid phone.

Between getting into the SW:ToR beta and this, I don't care about it anymore.

This is still probably going to be a great game.. but I'm just not terribly into - "LOL DUDE.. JUT NOTISED U LOGD N. THEY NERFNG WHICH DOCTER NXT PATCH LOL"

Have fun.

Sith is both a race, and later in Star Wars lore (and in the time of the game) reference to any dark jedi. Their ways of tapping into the dark side of the force became the most popular, turning it into a sort of religion.

They were originally held prisoner by exiled dark jedi, and the term pureblood came into play from all the inter-species breeding that occured during their capture.
