TLC and Origin have no redeeming value but come attached to other things you want, sort of like herpes.

They deserve these awards. If for no other reason than the fact that they set the bar so high that they can release games that, while disappointing in comparison, are better than probably 90% of the drek released, and people still want to burn them at the stake and enslave their families as serfs.

Aww, that sucks...

Rest in Peace, Zaeed. (took me a bit, but I finally remembered what he'd been in that really stuck with me. He was one of the Grey Council in Babylon 5.)

Creston

I had forgotten he was that one particularly Douchebaggy Grey Council guy!! I remembered him most from Buffy and as Zaeed. This guys voice was fantastic.

RIP Zaeed!

Yeah this doesn't seem to have much at all to do with the main series.

Then you might see some stuff actually getting done.

It sounds nice, and most Americans support term limits in congress, but it doesn't work in the legislative branch. State legislatures that have term limits haven't worked out very well. In fact, I can't think of one state in the US with a term limited legislature that fares any better than our US congress. You get a revolving door of clueless fucks who get booted out just as they start to figure out what they are doing. And because they don't have to worry about working with the guy across the aisle from them for the next 30 years, they are even more reluctant to put aside partisan BS.

It doesn't stop lobbyists either. Lobbyists would love term limits. When the old guy gets the boot, the new guys with no incumbent name recognition are gonna take the lobbyist dick hard because it's the only way they can win. They have no proven record that people state or district wide are going to give a shit about.

One amusing example is here


As a California budget-watcher pointed out to me, when you get Arnold Schwarzenegger in a room with the leadership of the Senate and Assembly, Schwarzenegger has the most budget and legislative experience in the room. A guy who was starring in Terminator films as recently as 2003 is now the most seasoned elected official during one of the worst crises California has ever had.

People who get worked up over EULAs need to calm the fuck down. Like Beamer said, EULAs are the domain of lawyers, written by lawyers, FOR lawyers. It says "End User" but they don't care if we read it, and they don't expect us to read it.

When it comes to bannination and other types of rule enforcement, these guys always have an entirely different internal document typically written by the head of the community team that outlines rules and punishments.

And they don't refer back to the EULA in writing these, because they don't want to try and parse that bullshit either. They refer back to some template they used before, or someone elses set of rules.

Gamers shouldn't accept these business practices, yet they all gladly do. In no other industry will you find consumers more spineless than gamers.

It's not really a matter of being spineless, but being borderline addicted. It's like music, or other forms of entertainment. People bemoan the business model and quality of these things CONSTANTLY, but are not willing to go without it because they'd get something resembling withdrawal symptoms. A crack head might not like it when he gets some bad rock, but what's he gonna do, go without?

I actually had a friend who worked in this studio a long while back before the game even had a title. There were a lot of Americans who worked there. So, probably Americans getting downsized here too, LOL.

Other than the colorbling mode, it's as if with each new announcement EA is determined in having absolutely nobody [b]from Blue's News[/b] buy this.

Fixed. And then like with most EA titles, it gets a zillion sales. Not much can be done about that.

So Koch Media bought Volition. Koch Media's Deep Silver publishing label publishes the X series of space sims. Does Volition have any rights to Freespace or is that in Interplay limbo? Not that it would necessarily mean anything, but I thought it was interesting.

Go watch some dev movies, there are several unique features. The most unique is simply playing like TES but with others. TES doesn't play like wow.

I think he meant specifically what features. I've watched several dev videos and don't really see what sets this apart so I'd like to know what you were talking about out of curiosity too.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

I don't see it either. It seems a lot like GW2 combat-wise. That's not necessarily terrible, but it's not TES. I'm not seeing much sandbox at all.

Has Obsidian ever NOT been screwed? Nearly everything they've released has been shat on by publisher shenanigans.

Could almost say that about SWTOR, they had a long beta and competent devs... but they didn't listen to their playerbase. Fail, and fail again.

I'd say it was the opposite. They listened quite a lot, too much in fact, and to the wrong people. Story story story story, but no meat and potatoes.

I haven't had any problems with Windows 8. To be honest I use it a lot like I used Windows 7. I pretty much never see the much maligned tile interface. And then I benefit from the myriad little improvements and tweaks they've made to other parts of the OS like they always do.

I feel more like I'm using a beefy service pack to Win7.

Most of the playerbase is toxic. Just a bunch of very foul mouthed kids who probably never leave their mom's basement.

The whole genre is toxic.
