Does the game actually have to RUN successfully to give you the earbuds?

All I had to do was start the game (but not an actual match). My macbook couldn't even render the main screen correctly (would do some weird flickering thing), but I got the earbuds.

Are you kidding me? Its the most expensive rent ever! And U$S 59 its a lot of money for a episodic game.

Yep, you're right. They should cancel those 2nd two games and then it wouldn't be episodic and thus would totally be worth $60

Just purchased Metro 33 on Steam. $49.99
I have 15mb internet speed. No problems with my rig or connection. It's been over and hour and it's still downloading. I'm at 50%.

My connection is maxed out most times when i try (granted I usually am not downloading at peak times) and I have a 12 MB connection.

I've never found the multiplayer to be that enjoyable, $60 is way too much for a short single player game - especially since it only includes one of the three factions.


Starcraft 2 has 30 missions. the original Starcraft had 30 missions. What makes it short?

If there were 3 factions of 10 missions each (which is what the original had), would you be ok with it?

"The first game sucked!" ass as the kids would say. It takes more than profanity and violence to make a game good. Right?

Sex!

Might have happened before, but this is the first time I've noticed that not a single valve game has appeared on the top ten.

World of Warcraft is on D2D, so it's not completely out of the question.

My original starcraft disc did NOT include a mac version I'm 99% sure. The Starcraft battlechest version did.

yeah, if vgcharts is to be trusted (no real idea of how accurate that information really is) then the list seems awfully wrong. According to vgcharts nintendogs and New Super mario bros (ds) both sold around (or more) than Mario Kart Wii.

Well it sounded like when you buy mass effect 2 you get codes for some DLC for free. So that said I'm not surprised if this was true.

Yeah, it's not like steam didn't tell customers it was going to be released on the 12th. If you were a pc gamer and wanted to play it on the 10th, you should have bought it retail and activated it on steam. Those people get to play it on the 10th (as far as I understand it).

If it's GPL you can't charge for it.

That's not correct. All the GPL says is that if the source is GPL and you distribute a binary to someone you have to provide the source to that person upon request. You don't even have to provide the source to everyone, just the person you gave the binary too.

This doesn't restrict you from charging money for anything. Red Hat wouldn't be as successful of a company as it is if it couldn't charge money.

And StarCraft fans may be more than perturbed about the late release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, already sliced into three campaigns, largely due to delays with Battle.net, Blizzard's multiplayer service.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't SC2 split because one game was simply too big for what they wanted to do? The game being delayed had to do with battle.net, not the split into 3 games AFAIK.

Edit: actually it was a poorly worded sentence combined with my poor reading skills :}

The first two Runaway games are available on steam, so there should be no excuse for not finding them :}

(assuming they aren't region locked on steam)

I think what he's saying is "we don't want the binary simply decompiled to assembly code" (which is trivial to do, but not very useful).

It would be interesting if they implemented some sort of SEC or FDIC agency to regulate and monitor the banks within eve to ensure this doesn't happen.

If anything this might drive down the cost of used games. Lets hope.

Actually if you look at http://store.steampowered.com/stats/, it looks like their lowest usage is around 6 - 9 pm Pacific time.... which is exactly when their outage is.

Yeah, having to go through file planet makes me less likely to download the demo. I've been spoiled too much by steam and since i already have impulse installed, It'd be much nicer just to use that.
