Microsoft to finally give Bing the international love it needs.

The only love Bing needs is a tombstone. Google is still infinitely more useful despite the commercialization and at least Google stopped trying to infect desktop computers a few years ago whereas Microsoft is still trying to dump Bing into Windows Update. It magically shows up even after being hidden every time there is a new version too.

Yeah Microsoft showing its class...Nothing like some extra adware/spyware to sweeten the deal...

Well...technically these chips are mostly made in Tawain, China, or Vietnam....so erm....yeah I guess they could go local, but a better bet would be that they should just make their own with cheap foreign slave labour...

This guy is a riot, quote from Reddit:

Question, how many copies have they sold?

Alex:
Steam doesn't want me to say, so I can say we've sold over one hundred thousand so far

So she references Witcher 2 and Mass Effect 2?

Aren't most of the sorceresses in Witcher 2 more powerful than Geralt? And isn't one of them a man-hating hardcore lesbian?

Mass Effect 2 is full of powerful female characters including the ability to play one as the main protagonist.

I'm also wondering how you can portray prostitutes and prostitution in a game without portraying the women as sex objects? I mean, do we pretend that prostitution doesn't happen, and hasn't been happening throughout the whole history of the human race? Do we pretend that there aren't countries where it is a legal profession? (Hello Amsterdam)

She's mad because a PROSTITUTE in a game offers you sex? I've had a prostitute jump in front of my car, kick her leg up and do a pirouette. Should I complain to the game designer of reality and tell him 'Not cool dude'?

She says these things are added to give a gritty and sexual edge to the game. Here is a newsflash: Real life is gritty and sexually edged. It happens every day over throughout the entire world. How is pointing your fingers at a video game company helping to combat this stuff?

How dare you bring common sense and reason into this discussion??!! Have you never heard of the Glorious Anita Sarkesian, Mother of Dragons?! One day you will pay, oh yes all men will PAAAY!!! MUAHAHAHHAHAH...

Without a proper PvP mode, none of this really matters. Epeen contest on leaderboards in nice and all but who gives a shit really? People who play Diablo3 10 hours a day??

As far as rifting, its a repetitive and boring mechanic. Making it EVEN FASTER (since its already lightning fast) will result in nothing new or especially exciting...

Color me completely underwhelmed....

That was good they shoulda released it at Halloween - or do another one for then. As far as the game goes, I'm not into Hat simulators.

Still a fun game after 6 years... Steam Workshop and FTP has done a LOT for the longevity of this game. You can joke about hats and the like, but if that's all you see, you haven't spent much time with it over the years.

Agreed. Warrants an instalation every few years or so....

Ive read the english translation of the Witcher short story collection, I think its called Blood of Elves. I have to say its pretty good, I dislike most fantasy (since most of it is shit) but that had me captivated. Really need to get around to reading the novels.

Still the game (the first Witcher) never really gripped me. It plays more like an action adventure game than a classic cRPG, its mechanics were simply not really that much fun.

Apparently, the vulnerability isn't even fixed.

I find this to be an abuse of power from Valve. It's never good to have an almost monopoly of a market, in this case PC games digital distribution, because shit like this will happen.

But... they don't have a Monopoly. Origin, which everyone loves to hate on for no reason other than existing, exists.

No they don't, but the market is pretty much an oligopoly with Steam being the dominant supplier.

My comment was more of a shot at people who complain about Origin existing than anything else. Everyone likes to claim it wasn't necessary and that they should just put everything on Steam, then something like this happens and suddenly it's "Monopoly Bad."

Please correct me if Im wrong but doesnt Origin distribue EA games only?

I make a point of watching the games that really interest me. Sometimes they turn out dull, depending on the tactics used and on how the game progresses but more often than not they are pretty good. It all depends on what you want out of a sport. For me American Football is nearly unwatchable. The constant breaks and pauses ruin it for me.

News Comments > Line Of Defense $99 Early Access

Id like to say that Derek Smart is definitely not alone out there, when it comes to arrogance and egotism. He just happens to be cheap enough to do his own PR, and has a fanbase that likes to be his bitch.

There is nothing inherently wrong with that. Some people just like to take it up the ass, day in day out.

On the other hand, Ive also found that there are developers out there (Im thinking of Eagle Dynamics in this case, but there are many more) that insulate themselves too much from their fanbase. They get 'dedicated' fans (read fanatics) to run and moderate their forums, and handle their PR, and in the process completely destroy their small and faithful communities without even realising it.
