The amazon associates central states:
In most cases, you earn advertising fees for visitors that come to an Amazon site and place any qualifying items in a customer's Shopping Cart within 24 hours of their arrival at most Amazon sites.com or 30-days for MyHabit.com. However, this 24-hour window for most Amazon sites and 30-day window for MyHabit.com will end before it expires once the customer submits his order or reenters Amazon.com through a Link that is not your Special Link. Once the window is closed, you will not earn advertising fees on any subsequent purchases.

Seems to be restricted to the session that was opened via your banner link.
I'll give the .de version a try soonish. Or maybe someone already figured out whether that works?

But seriously, isn't this game also coming out for pc? Or did they drop the PC version?

The German Ubisoft page for this game lists the release date as the 21st of November for PC/PS3/360/Wii U. For some reason, the US one mentions "holiday 2013" for all platforms I checked.

When checking the NHL gamecenter article and following it up with a look at the NHL's page, it seems that regular subscription fees still apply, and that the 360 is the only platform that requires XBL fees in addition to them.

One key for the whole bunch except a separate key for SR3.

It might be worth mentioning that this can turn into a localised key. For example, I received one for a German version of SR3.

GW2 patch notes are usually posted to the wiki and also available via /wiki game updates (which opens the appropriate page in a browser).

I don't want f2p - but is there enough high end content to start paying for this again yet?

Depends on what you're looking for. I've kept my subscription active for operations (raiding) since I'm part of a nice team. 1.4 included a new operation and our first sample of it was fun.
Previous operations weren't terrible, just a bit stale after a few months of running them, even getting a near-full alt team to complete them. This is a good content pack if that's also your taste.
This update did not include the space missions, warzones or planet Makeb which were outlined as additional content we could expect over the course of this year.

This might just leave everyone underwhelmed by being the beta->release announcement for Wrath of Heroes, based on Warhammer (assuming they dare to consider that a classic).

Enrage timers for bosses.
Summons of any kind to help diminish downtime(wipes)for raid groups.
After 18 loading screens, you then have to run your ass back to bosses via 1997.

And yes, I feel like a complete chump because this is one of, if not THE worst run mmo's i can remember.

Have you played Matrix online/ Aion/ Age of conan/ Warhammer online/ Star Trek online/...?

Combat logs are in the game since patch 1.2. They repeatedly said that they wanted that information to be available for personal evaluation, but not to judge others with. This reddit thread delivered an early summary of a few of the available parsers, more recently, dpsmeter.com has become available and seems promising. Haven't tried it myself though, I heal; my feedback is people surviving.

I don't understand your enrage timer comment, please explain; bosses do enrage, do you want an in-game timer/countdown?

After wiping, players can use transportation to checkpoints. These could certainly be spaced out more generously, but some of them are available, with varying quality of implementation; I prefer the Karagga's Palace version, lack of realism be damned.

The ready check issue is perplexing. At the guild summit someone pointed that lack out and they seemed surprised to have to confirm that they did in fact not have one. A few months later, it's still not in.

ouch after 80 minutes nobody cares enough to post anything positive or negative.

Significantly later I'd like to confirm that the group finder works well enough for people who didn't insist to be the last player on their server. Lots of players whining on the fleet that it never created a group for them, but since it doesn't magically conjure tanks and healers out of thin air, that's just a result of the class distribution. Works for me since I play both of those and got groups within minutes.

Regarding group finder, it will be interesting to see how the playerbase reacts. Because when you visit the SWTOR forums, there are so many of them who in fact don't want it, because it's a "wow" feature, and that would pollute their beloved game.

From my brief impression of the SWTOR group finder compared to the WOW version:
It's single realm, so combined with the higher post-transfer populations, it should allow players to run levelling flashpoints much more conveniently than before and might also work well for level 50 content.
Single realm means that people will probably want to be more mindful of their reputation than the relatively anonymous giant pool of players in a WOW cross-realm group.
Ignoring a player will prevent you from getting matched with that player.

It seems promising to me, and I'm looking forward to using parts of it for my alts. I'm not as optimistic about finding a group for the most difficult content via this system (which in this case would be Lost Island hard mode or Explosive Conflict story mode), but might still give it a shot.

Allowing people to leave low population ones and go to higher population ones does not solve anything, it just makes the problem worse. Now you're left with even MORE low population servers than before.

These are opt-in server mergers. Servers marked as transfer sources will never be selected as a destination server. The transfer option will not disappear overnight, so players on source servers can just move whenever they accept that reality.
What this approach avoids is competing against inactive accounts for character and legacy names.

Regarding the group finder: it's currently available on the public test server. Still has a few bugs, but should probably make its way onto live servers along with the rest of patch 1.3 within the next few weeks.

This offer doesn't seem to be worldwide. The german store only mentions in-game items (3 weapons, 1 armor; the amazon preorder has 1 weapon, 1 armor) as a pre-order bonus.

NBA 2k12 is still unpatched on the PC, just like previous years. Unfortunately, this version seems to be less balanced than previous ones, even with the patch(es?).

RTCW would probably be difficult to liberate from its regulations due to the placement of NS symbols throughout the game.

Was still unsure whether to get it at release, and it's good to see a review that also emphasises the technical issues, especially after SR2. Probably something to pick up if it goes on steam sale at christmas though.
