What will hit first? Steam at 8M concurrent, or Star Citizen at 40M?

Place your bets!

Christmas is mostly done, so Star Citizen at 40M sounds like a safer bet. (Witty Pun Intended!!)

News Comments > L4D2 Still Free For Now
5. Re: L4D2 Still Free For Now Dec 27, 2013, 04:10 InBlack
 
Although I own L4D, and played quite a bit of it, I never got into the second game. It kind of felt like a ripoff to me. I think it was less than a year between the two games and a lot of people who switched later complained that the gameplay of L4D2 was not nearly as nuanced or balanced as the first game.

I hope they bring back some of the special feeling in the third game.

News Comments > Star Citizen Passes $35 Million
55. Re: Star Citizen Passes $35 Million Dec 24, 2013, 04:02 InBlack
 
How does White Knighting for Chris Roberts help make Star Citizen a better game?? I have yet to play a game where hype and 'positive' attitude helped make that game better. How is hype in any way better or more useful than constructive criticism??? Can anyone name one game where the above question is answered directly?

Snowden's no "whistle-blower"...he's a lying, cheating high-school dropout sociopath who fled the country after breaking every oath he ever took with his country and his employer. His word means nothing and he cannot be trusted. He broke into his supervisor's computer after stealing the password, got the answers to an NSA entry exam and passed the test. I'd bet 99% of his "releases" are either made up completely or else completely out of context.

Whistle-blowers do *not* act like Snowden--they stay in the US and blow their whistles. They have the courage of their convictions! Ever heard of a US whistle-blower who fled the country, then blew the whistle, and then moved to mother Russia? I didn't think so.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/nsa-speaks-out-on-snowden-spying/

If, in the United States, we had anything besides a corrupt, inept, ludicrously stupid and incompetent Media Press, Snowden's "whistle-blowing" would have been laughed to scorn with jeers from the start.

Snowden's going to discover that hanging might be preferable to living out his days in Russia, or anywhere else, for that matter. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home, eh Snowden? Don't kid yourself--Snowden now fully realizes the extent of what he's done and would give *anything* to undo it all. But it's too late for that kind of sentiment as the choice is no longer his. This is a wonderful example for anyone else thinking of unwisely burning his bridges.




Wow. Did you lose your grandparents to Stalin or something? Way to miss the point...

The penalty for treason is death, as it should be. Nothing new there. If you don't like it, please leave the US now. Snowden is a spineless coward who deserves to die for his crimes.

I'll give that a 9/10.


No way. Its way too blatant and obvious. I wouldnt rate it past 6/10.

Maybe they've finally figured out that games are a lot cheaper in Russia than they are in North America?
1. create fake account in Russia
2. buy games cheap
3. gift them to main account
4. profit?

Games are not cheaper in russia. Where did you hear that?

NVM just googled it, indeed certain games are much cheaper in Russia.

What? Im trying to make sense of the blurb but keep failing. So cross region gifting is NOT allowed?? Bummer...

Sounds like it. Surprised they've not done this sooner. But I guess it's better than logging into your account one day and finding games missing, or your account banned.


Huh? How does that help with that? What Im seeing as motivation here is pure greed. Its the same reason why they have different regions in the first place. So they can skim the exchange rate rates.

MattyC wrote on Dec 19, 2013, 23:14:
Do you mean unrestricted? You can play around with all kinds of builds and get the one that works for you. It is PoE that locks you in and forces you to relevel another character to try something different. I don't mean that to dump on PoE, I just don't see any reason for every ARPG to lock you in, variety is good.
When you can respec your character on the fly like you can in Diablo III, the only thing that differentiates you from anyone else playing your class is your gear. That just isn't enough for me.


Exactly. Not to mention the fact that 90% of the skills in the game are useless. There are a few set builds and thats that. The real reason why PoE or D2 are so fun is because you can have tons of viable builds with each character and the gear is part of that but its not 100% of that like it is in D3.

When people post stuff that someone with even a tiny amount of experience in the subject knows is completely false, you should rethink how you respond.

Only the blind can't see the vast difference between PoE and D3 with regards to character customization - PoE truly has it, D3 pretends to.

Huh? Didnt I just say that?

The Diablo universe is dead, Diablo WAS Blizzard north, period. When multi billion dollar Blizzard got rid of them they thought they could do it better and this pile of flaming dung is what we got.

Chris Metzen couldn't write a story to save his life, putting Jay Wilson in charge of making the game destroyed it as well. The entire concept could not of been more poorly designed and executed. Loot 2.0, getting rid of the AH, all of it is perfume on a pig, doesn't change what is fundamentally wrong with the game.

I really don't care and don't support Blizzard as a company anymore.

I Have Grim Dawn now and the alpha alone is as close to the fun i have had to Diablo 2 as i am going to get from any ARPG and I have tried them all.

Well said. Agreed 100%.
