Edit: I'm not sure steam allows a credit card to purchase on more than 1 account.
Valve doesn't admit this on its support website, but the limit is two Steam accounts with the same credit card. On any subsequent accounts you will immediately receive a generic denial message that your credit card is over the limit even when the card is not actually over the limit. Calling your credit card company will confirm this. By the way this limit also proves that Valve stores and tracks credit cards indefinitely as it doesn't matter how much time has transpired between purchase attempts with the same card. It also doesn't matter if you don't check the option box to remember the credit card information for the account. If you try to use a single credit card for purchases on more than two accounts, it will be automatically denied.

PayPal, maybe?
I never tried it with PayPal. I assume the limit would still be two Steam accounts to the same payment method though.

For comparison's sake Amazon has no such limit on its accounts for digital media, software, and games. You can have as many accounts as you want all using the same credit card.

I have 3 steam accounts. One for me, one for each of my kids. I use the same CC across the board and have never had problems. Sometimes I use PayPal, too, and that has never been an issue either.

they should have just rebooted tetris instead

btw, all projects thematically derived from "the most dangerous game" type scenarios must include Ice-T in some form, in order to retain any modicum of legitimacy. this is of course due to his mastery of that character portrayal

It is called "Surviving The Game" and I just started watching it last night.

Any chance of me trying this game before paying for it?

This worked nicely for Secret World as I knew within an hour that I had no interest in that game.

I suspect I'll like GW2.

I'd love to play Day-Z -- my son plays it and I watch him. It looks like fun and we'll enjoy playing together.

However - I need a sale. I'm not dropping 29.99 on ARMA-2.

(Yes, I know I missed the steam summer sale)

Perhaps, unlike Minecraft, it'll feel finished?
It's easier to "finish" a game that isn't as open or doesn't have any where near the same amount of features and functionality as Minecraft.

True. They could go Notch's route: Rake in millions of dollars from selling the shitty alpha/beta versions of the game while developing at a sluggish rate, then use that shyster-earned money to bulk up the development team post-release and THEN start adding in features that make the game slightly less boring.

EDIT: I just realized I posted in a Diablo 3 thread without saying anything bad about it or Actiblizz. To right that wrong let me say I find it hysterical that a game that was made online only because it would eliminate hacking has an official Hack Report Form on the Blizzard website. LMAO!

Online-only is used to prevent hacking within the game. Your user account can still be hacked, hence the form on the website.

Online-only will never and never was intended to prevent exploiting the built-in game functionality (such as the recent exploits being so very newsworthy lately).

The Batman movie was mediocre...overly long, lacking much of a plot and the plot that was there was completely predictable with no surprises.

I'd wait for it to hit Redbox.


I wouldn't call it mediocre, but the pacing felt off to me. While I realize this is Bruce Wayne's story, it felt like too much time was spent there (S: The whole "Bruce goes to prison" piece ran waaay too long, and felt like it was just a way for him to have something to do for a bit), and not enough of Batman kicking everyones ass...

As an end to a trilogy, it was ok (and I appreciated how it tied into the first one), but by itself, I felt it was easily the weakest of the three.


I enjoyed this one. Something did feel off, maybe it was just too much Nolan+Batman and felt like more of the same stuff we got in the first 2 movies.

However, I really enjoyed Bane. I felt he was a good villain and his voice was excellent.

Too bad, without the shooting it looks like TDKR might have set the record for a release weekend.

That's bullshit. An excuse that studio suits would use to cover their asses.

You're right -- it had zero impact.

Were you born in your fantasy world or did you walk through a magical portal to get there?

The game engine just 'feels' bad - and that ruins any game.

From what I read in general chat, there are some major graphics/animation bugs that need to be resolved soon.

Otherwise, the concepts in the game are pretty cool. The skill tree looks like a clusterf*ck at first, but isn't bad at all.

Other that that, there are certainly aspects of this game that feel clunky but I hope those will be resolved by release.

Yeah because Hellgate London worked out so well. Oh wait.

I ordered a copy online to be delivered on release. Somehow, I would up with 2 copies. I still have an unboxed still-in-shrink-wrap copy of Hellgate. I really wanted to like the game, because I loved the concept and I knew Roper had his mitts in it. Still kinda bummed that more people aren't investing in the action-rpg genre. It seems like it's all story driven (Mass Effect series/Dragon Age series) or the combat isn't real-time. So few games now give you the thrill of new amazing loot swarming over you while you cut a swath of death through the overwhelming numbers of bad guys...

Seems like there's plenty of ARPGs coming out now though. Torchlight 2, Path of Exile, Bordlands 2, Krater, Grim Dawn, and I think I'm leaving a couple out still...

I've preordered and played the PoE beta. Unless they make massive strides between now and release then that game will sink.

Got all the classes to at least mid 40's and quit. I am very disappointed in this game, Blizzard blew it.

With hundreds of hours invested in the game, never saw one legendary item. 95% of the rares you find are only good for salvage. Tried playing with items I found, but when you are in the 40's and still finding gear in the low thirties...well it is not good.

Just horrible itemization. About the worst I have experienced in a game.

So who really cares if there are exploits, most of us quit the game weeks ago!


You may have quit sooner if you did find a legendary item. I ran across 3 legendaries and 2 set items in my many hours of D3 play. Not one of them was usable and not one of them sold for more than 50k on the AH.

Serving text content and running an online gaming system are like, totally the same thing!

I see. So they shut down the "online gaming system" to defragment the graphics to maintain optimal framerates.

Thanks for your insight.

I really enjoyed D3 when it was first released. I wasn't one of the ones bickering about the online DRM. However, I quickly hit a ceiling in Act1 of Inferno that would require me to switch from casually playing the game and farming items to intensely playing the game and farming items just to progress. While the gameplay is certainly fun, constant farming (with little to no forward movement) with nothing else to do in the game world becomes very boring.

Sadly, I think Blizzard will invest far less effort in resolving the replayability of D3 because it has no monthly subscription.

One other thought: They regularly take BNET offline for hours on end for 'scheduled maintenance'. It is a little mind boggling how they can do this - weekly - considering how most online service providers strive for five 9's of availability or higher. The issue is Blizzard has no SLA commitment to their customers. I can't imagine what they're doing during that maintenance window.

What does online DRM have to do with an exploit that is reproducible via a repeated sequence of spells? They're not using a 3rd-party hack or anything else.

I find it sad that Grimlock is such an amazing game and some of you didn't even think it was worth the already cheap 15 bucks. Shame.

Hmm... I've been playing it for about 30 minutes and while it is good, it certainly is simple. Very much like The Bard's Tale, which is great.

But to say it's worth $15.... that's debatable. At the current sale price it's definitely worth it, though.

Honestly it seems pretty damn reasonable. I very rarely go over 250GB and when I do it's not by a huge amount. Comcast is going to upgrade that to 300GB... The first three times I go over that there's no charge, and then when I do go over it there's only a $10 charge when I go over by 50GB.

Those are some pretty soft rules and I imagine they're doing so because existing policy would go from being very soft (non-existent) to shutting down your service for egregious and repeat offenses. This is better.

Of course the downside is the precedent itself. As we become more and more data intensive Comcast will have to raise the cap to stay reasonable and that's going to be hard for them to do when they're making more and more off of overages.

Speak for yourself. We're 12 days into July and I'm already at 177GB for the month just from the family streaming video on our Rokus.

Well I'm loving it so far. Immersive, detailed world; deep storyline and lore; free-form character development that does away with cookie-cutter levels and builds; lots of quests that make you use your brain. What more could you ask for?

If anyone is interested in trying it, I have one 24-hour buddy pass at my disposal. First poster gets it. I'll need your e-mail address.

Nomaar: I'll take it! fibrocyte@gmail.com

OK, you should be getting it shortly.

Thanks! I got it and am downloading the client, now.
