What AT&T - all that money spent on junkets, parties and political corruption didn't pay off?

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.

1. MW3 problems - say it isn't SO Nov 8, 2011, 10:51 Bard
 
... 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.

don't know how you can call it a sequel - more accurate would be payware patch.

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.

which plot? the actual plot or mine?
The actual plot that people are rolling their eyes over.

Didn't play the 'recent' ones so can't judge the new plot against the old ones.

I meant, you know, the book. That big heavy thing with pages and words that the entire series is based on?

Ah - refering to a book when the context was computer game. Got it!

I guess it's harder to remember a plotline from a book 13 years old when you read at least a book a week.

Wouldn't it be better for Rainbow to go after THE REAL TERRORISTS - ie - assassinating or capturing bankers and politicians - rather than this transparent brainwashing attempt to support the bastards that have created this mess our country is in today?

That would make a GREAT game.

newer starforce is fine. it's just a one time online verification thing. steam drm is a lot worse.

Until you run out of activations.

It IS limited activations - no matter that you can backup your activation. What if your drive crashes and no chance of deactivatng? YEP - one less activation...

What if starforce shuts down, or becomes uncontactable? Can we rely on a historically dodgy bunch of dickheads to give us an unlock forever patch to their DRM?

PASS.

huh? essentially a patch to an existing game - featuring the same helicopter? for half the price of a new game?

I hope there's a lot of new features, rather than just fixes to old issues to make the cost justified.

TAP TAP TAP.

You hear that RIM?

That's more nails in the coffin.

While you continue to force consumers to rely upon a centralised, easily spied upon and easily shut down by government 'authorities'centric infrastructure you're going to keep losing consumers.

@UBI - DRM = no sale.

I want to be able to use my software on any system I have, anywhere I am, whether I have an internet connection or not.

If the only way to do so is to use a pirated version...

DUMBASSES.

NO DEDICATED SERVER FOR PC.

I hope relic understand that without a dedicated server you can't foster a gaming community for PC.
