I don't think this guy is familiar with Fox New's audience.

News Comments > RIFT Founder's Pricing Plan Extended

It's not just the sub fees, I won't pay $50 for the first months game time, especially for a game I may hate. I know they like to think they're selling the client and the month's game time is free, but that's just marketing. After the month is over the client is worthless.

For it to even start to get better, it has stop sucking worse every time I'm FORCED to login. I really can't communicate how fucking much I hate GFWL - the words haven't been invented and never will be, by human beings anyway.

Old Man Murray, their review of Deus Ex as a seminal moment in the history of both internet journalism and satire. I had an email address at evilemail for years, a 'paid for' address, I thought they were brilliant, but working for Valve? What the fuck? I hope their parking is paid for.

You...you were still looking forward to this?



At this point, it's more like... morbid curiosity.

Does the world really need another Dungeon Siege game? Given Obsidian's 'hit or miss' track record, I'm guessing this title will be their next miss. I hope Square Enix has the good sense not to let them build their own engine.

OK, so when do the free trials start? Or, how long will I have to wait for the client to cost less than a monthly sub? I've played too many MMO's to ever pay full retail for what amounts to a month of game time.

People like to rag on Thief 3, it wasn't a bad game. It had moments that were as good as anything the Thief Series ever offered. Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to get the game to run on modern hardware and operating systems with anything approaching passable stability, on ATI hardware anyway.

More misuse of IP rights laws. When fascism comes to America it will come draped in a flag, carrying a bible and bitching loudly about intellectual property rights.

We'll be lucky if it's only 7 more months of hype. I wouldn't be surprised to see it pushed back to next year, not that I'm eagerly awaiting the game. I think that cinematic trailer they released a long while back marked the pinnacle of my interest in this game - it's been downhill ever since.

And let's face it, with all the money spent, if it's not a hit - it's a failure.

FWIW, I'm sick to death of flaky games that use the Unreal engine, Bioshock 2 hardly ran. Epic and their arrogant employees can suck it.

Razer still hasn't managed to launch their XBox controller, announced a year ago this month. I'm beginning to think Microsoft is trying to piss all over the Onza - for what ever reason.

(FWIW, I'm only interested because crappy console ports are best played with a console controller and Microsoft can eat a cock.)

As far as I know, Thief 3 is still hopelessly broken if you have an ATI video card and a modern operating system. I did my bit, I bitched about it endlessly. At this point I'm not sure who I'm more disgusted with, Eidos, AMD or Epic (and their insufferable Unreal engine).

I have to say, the level of cynicism here is just astounding...


...and heartening. Almost to a man, everyone recognizes Microsoft's deceits and deceptions. It brings a little tear to my eye.
