I guess I missed out on something, I have no idea why you're all up in arms about these sites ... well ok Kotaku is awful, but I really enjoy that Movie Bob guy on The Escapist.

Each country must be signed up for separately. So Blue has done amazon.de and a few others. Check the right nav menu, and you'll see four image links to them. If you have adblocker on, you might not see them.

Yeah, I use ABP, and they don't show up. I usually turn if off, reload the page and click it, and then turn it on, when it's shoppin time...

Speaking of which, Krull on blu ray tonight! Hello childhood!

"There is currently no information of whether or not DirectX 12 will be coming to older versions of Windows."

I doubt it will be on older versions of Windows. When it comes to Microsoft, the carrot is also the stick.

Yeah, I'd be shocked if it came to older versions.

edit: ugh, sleepy...

Reviews seems to be generally good, but a bit all over the place. I have to wonder how much your love of the source material plays into it, IE if you're a huge fan of the franchise, you might be more forgiving of it's flaws if you're still have fun. While someone else who isn't an alien fan judges it on straight on gameplay alone...

I shop on amazon like a mofo, but it kind of comes and goes in waves (based on what's coming out, IE we're heading into the heavy release season right now, but next Feb might be dead)...

Glad it's working!

Obsidian is behind schedule. Gee...what a surprise.

Considering what happens when they try to hit an imposed deadline... I'm fine with a delay. (Alpha Protocol, Fallout New Vegas, and KotOR 2 all say hi.)

Exactly. Them taking their time is the best option.

UGH, Blue, how long have you had that Amazon fractional payment thing? I wish that had been more obvious if it's been around for awhile, I buy a metric shit-ton of stuff through amazon.

I'll use that link from now on, although nothing on there seems to indicate money is going to Bluesnews.

Over a month. There's also a block on links on the front page, upper left.

Was it ever discovered who sent those tweets to Anita Sarkeesian? The ones that forced her from her home?

From what I've read it was her own doing. Which falls in line with all the other antics she's been pulling. For example, showing gameplay from Hitman of someone killing two strippers in a changing room and dragging the bodies around and trying to imply that this is what you're supposed to do in the game, when just about every "Lets play" shows players just walking past them (like you're supposed to).

She never mentions there's penalties for doing the above in the vid too.



Great time to review this...

Hm, well then how did it start? All those sites simultaneously fired off a "gamers are dead" article at one point, but what prompted them to do so?

Sony gives away way better games than Microsoft. They give away Driveclub, MS gives away Crimson Dragon...

Oh I see it's not the full version of Driveclub. Anyway.... Still better than Crimson Dragon.

I thought I heard something in the video like 9 cars and 11 tracks, or similar.

What the f$#k happened to Windows 9? I guess Microsux doesnt know about the even number curse?

Apparently the whole decision was as simple as the fact that there are a lot of programs that look for something as stupid as

// Checks if Windows 95 or Windows 98
if (windowsVersion starts with 9){
do stuff
}

If that's true (and I have no reason to doubt you), that's a fucking riot!

Hard to believe current gen consoles dont get this. What's up?

Considering they're all x86, it's rather odd.


Anyone who pre-orders will get free access to the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit, so act fast!

Wonder how much DLC this one will have?

A client's energy bill tripled for two months with no apparent cause.

I love stories like that, as I tend to do a lot of similar troubleshooting as apart of my job. It sometimes tends to be something the user doesn't mention, and I tell people part of my job is not just asking questions, but asking the right questions to prod more information out of people...

As an example, we had one guy who's account kept getting locked, over and over, after a password change. We looked at his computer, his phone, his ipad, everything. After like 5 days of this, he's getting frustrated, and swears it can't be any other devices he owns.

I finally tell him to go home and turn off every piece of computer equipment in the house. Problem magically goes away, and I never hear from him again...


I can see what locks accounts out, so it's always pretty easy for me to take a wanker like that and go "Looks like it's an iPad that's locking your account out by hitting our network, and according to our system you have no company iPad. You know it's against security policy to connect your private iPad to our network, right?"

They typically stop complaining right at that point.

Yeah, I've had some like that. One literally named "<usersfirstname>ipad".
