THIS is why piracy is supposedly rampant - the release of software in unacceptable state, with MAYBE a fix some months to years later, with no way of getting a refund.

Screw that. it took me AGES to figure out that i required BOTH origin AND bioware accounts for starwars etc.

Origin sucks.

I'm committed to spending my gaming dollar on stuff that works properly without unnecessary dicking around.

Internet underuse can cause delusions, where terrorists attacked America, the attack on the USS Liberty was an accident, and Iran is picking a war with the U.S. None of which have anything to do with Israel.

Great, so now the US is looking to have camoflague to hide things from being detected - say, sequences of flashing explosions floor after floor....

I'm sure someone could find a use for this.,.

How's that hope and change working for you liberals?? Haha.

You better believe I didn't vote for that asshole.

And I'm voting for Ron Paul again too.

Vote for that asshole and Ron Paul, welp....

Anyone that wants to end the federal reserve and pull America out of its military adventurism will deal a very big blow to the 'moneyed interests' that are controlling our government.

More importantly since when people have started to be afraid of the government and of fucking corporations? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Not with the NDAA passed - anything you do to make corporations and governments afraid of you = terrorism = Jailed without charge, without trial, for however long they want o.

Welcome to the new reality - Israeli style fascism.

Orcs must Die! is a bloody good game. Perfect balance of puzzle, action and humor.

I think I've killed about six and a half thousand orcs, ogres and other miscellaneous denizens of evil. It's torn me from Skyrim.

Suckage - I can only assume you're too young to know that we have a right to privacy and against being searched without reason.

It is not LEGAL for governments to deploy spyware upon citizens in many countries.

What this report shows is that governments are illegally monitoring people - not just criminals - but in many cases people doing things like fighting government corruption or having the guts to stand up to the bullshit being piled on us by thugs in positions of self claimed 'authority'.

Maybe you don't understand the ramifications of this, but here's one - if you know of crimes being committed by government how are you going to let the press or anyone else know without the government finding out about it and doing things like say - throwing you into jail and torturing you without charge and holding you for years - like they have to Bradley Manning? Or making your life difficult by imprisoning you like they have Julian Assange?

Maybe try reading 1984, or Brave New World. Or Wikileaks. Or Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

News Comments > Skyrim Patched, LAA Fix No Longer Works

They could quite happily create the EXE with the LAA modifier enabled by default, but then the game would likely crash on every machine with less than 4GB RAM.

Twaddle.

Just because something is LAA enabled doesn't mean it is forced to use more memory. It wouldn't crash on machines with less than 4gb of RAM.

All that's happening is that more memory is available to the process and that the game will be able to cache more data in UNUSED memory if it is available.

LAA doesn't magically break memory management.

'A couple of weeks' to make it fully functional?

See - this is why I hopped off the franchise and won't be back. The crap state the games are released in.

Could it possibly be that, like exercise, exercising the brain results in brain growth in the areas used? Exercising the eye makes your vision sharper - so you're addicted to looking? You expose your skin to sun and it darkens - you're addicted to exposing yourself?

Seems pretty bloody obvious doesn't it.

BUT - with gaming so prevalent, there's a whole untapped market for the Pharmacuticals - treating of video game addiction - this could be their biggest thing since ADD.

What's next? because you have bigger arms because you lift weights your exercise addicted?

F@*K off.

... has there EVER been a smooth launch of any of the MW series?

This is why I'll never buy any of their products pre-order - as it usually takes months before things are working properly.

China plays with never expiring pay per minute.

I'd play MMORPG's if that was the case here in North America. Sick of paying a monthly subscription that gets wasted if i am too busy to play.

I played Aion for a couple months while it was out in China but not the US, using an English language patch derived from the English beta. It used the payment model you described and it was fantastic. Very affordable and without any subscriptions, client charge, pressure to play, or billing information stored on their servers.

Honestly if they can find a way to do it I think you'll see a lot of people paying for 40k Online in Asia even if they play somewhere else in the world.

I have no doubt they could - but i doubt they'll see it as profitable as the ripoff model.
