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.

That's too bad about Virtualbox.

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.

They dropped that requirement yesterday I think. I hear the last gen versions suck (PS3 in particular) but YMMV.

Any details / additional info on that? That requirement was really the only thing holding me back. Is it just dropped for the beta?

I knew the Wii U wasn't doing that well, but I thought the 3DS was picking up the slack. I guess not :/

My concern is that the gameplay that made the original game so fun is just too dated now. I don't play competitive FPS games like I used to.

If the game is like the older titles you can always just game with bots.

None of that makes any sense. If you don't care about the previous Battle.net account, why not just create a new one?

An authenticator was never required. If you didn't care about the security of your account why did you even add one?

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.

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.

So in your world it is both a trivial task that a 13 year old with no income can handle and a grueling endeavor that no adult can afford?

Based on what little I was able to play of the beta, I was no that impressed. That said, it wasn't bad... just nothing special. I really wish they had just made another ES single player game. I will still keep my eye on this though.

If/when they do another UT, they need to look back at what made the earlier games fun. I've tried 2-3 times now to play Black, and always lose interest. 99 was the best, and 2003/2004 were fair, but still felt like they were missing something...


U2:XMP was the best. Best! Of course, Epic wasn't the one that made that one.

Yeah UT 99 was my favorite, and that was Digital Extremes.

It was also Epic. Development was split between the two IIRC.
