As always Lazy people will always Buy to Win

As someone who hasn't really played since the beta did it really go towards pay-to-win? I never got that from the game I played, but like I said it has been a while.

Sad to hear the new R.B.I Baseball is so bad. I loved 4 for the Genesis as a little kid.

How do you "reboot" a game series, which has no storyline, no narration, no "lore" and no tradition whatsoever?

I would hope a reboot to the much earlier games. They used to be great. That said I don't expect that to be what they intend to do here... :/

I loved the original Cossacks, even if it hasn't aged that well. I am excited for an update though I will wait for reviews.

Always nice to see a new classic style RTS. That genre has been neglected lately.

I miss Virtua Fighter on the PC.

Had Sega focused on keeping it ported to PC, it would have far outpaced the street fighter series.

I only ever played 4 for (I think) the PS2 and some arcade version many years earlier that I forgot the exact name of, but I was never very impressed with Virtua Fighter. Was the PC version just that much better?

this game was made for consoles, just like all of blizzard's new games

If SC2, Heroes, and WoW are out on consoles that is news to me.

Lol, this game has not jumped the shark in the slightest...

I don't know that you are using that idiom correctly...

From my experience I would guess 50% of those are older individuals who forgot they subscribed to the service in the 1990s and have no idea they are still paying for it...

ESL did a pretty good job with SC2, but I was never impressed with their CS coverage. Maybe this time will be better.

ASRock Fatal1ty X99 (Intel X99) Professional Motherboard on TweakTown.

I didn't know that Fatal1ty branded stuff was even still around... I actually wore a Fatal1ty T-shirt I got for free at CPL in 2005 or so the other day to mow the law. Figured he was out of the scene by now.

I have wished that Blues would adopt a mobile friendly layout for years. Make it so! Please!!

On the newer phones with 1080 displays it is great as is, but yeah on older devices it can be rough to look at.

That wouldn't be us, would it

Guess not

A CMS wouldn't be a bad idea, gotta be easier than cobbling everything with Frontpage. I'm brushing up on my CSS and JS, I'm going to take a crack at a demo page soon as a little project.

I am not really sure what the mobile or PDA links are for anymore. Then again I guess it could just be my mobile devices. I think I might have a very dusty Palm in the garage that could do WiFi...

Cross sold over a million units, so you're not the only one. I haven't played it, but have been meaning to check it out.

Give it a go. I didn't think it was as good as Trigger, but it was still a good game.

That said, I feel old now.

At least one thing is true.. I haven't seen anything yet and I don't want to (given it's an dota clone)

I am not sold on Heroes of the Storm, but I wouldn't say it is a DotA clone. It felt quite different from most MOBAS. Again, not sure it is my game, but it was a breath of fresh air.

Indeed. I would hate to see VirtualBox go away.

Assuming it works well, I am incredibly happy to see a Grim Fandango GOG release!

I still have my original, but I have never been able to get it to run on Vista or 7 for more than a few minutes without a crash.

Incidentally, I bet the beta will last three times longer in order to maximize those sales to a game that will be F2P.
F2P the characters they selected that week. Unless you want to count the "Try Before You Buy" screw around mode.

You can get new heroes pretty easily with the in game currency. Or at least you could, I haven't played in a long time. I found it pretty fun, but it needed much more map variety.

As far as MOBAs go, it is probably the one I liked the most. That said, I am not much of a MOBA fan.

I can only imagine that a giant multiple of that number are mostly running Windows 7 via Bootcamp (don't know if Bootcamp supports Win8). Most OS X users I've found to prefer the limited, simpleton approach to using and configuring an OS, and as such they don't mind at all Apple making all the important decisions for them--that's why Mac users + Linux would seem to mix about like oil and water...;)

I run OS X, Slackware Linux, and Windows 7 on my MacBook. I also have a Windows server VM running on the OS X partition for testing. Not sure why you think people who like to use OS X are incapable of working with other operating systems. Besides, OS X is only simple if you want it to be. You can still open up a terminal you know.
