Please stop giving both these crooks press.

It's actually better that the information gets out there to prevent people from stumbling onto it and somehow thinking its legit.

The difference between the comments here and at Kotaku is hilarious.

Here: "That's a bunch of money! Hope he's keeping track, but that's awesome. Good job, Notch!"

Kotaku: "WHAT A MONSTER WHO COULD POSSIBLY NEED SUCH A HOUSE THAT BIG HE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THE MONEY TO ORPHANS."

Hahah, I always love that kind of mentality. Yep we should just all give away our earnings and good fortune to other people. How about this Kotaku commenters? You first. Donate your videogames, your pay checks, your time and etc. Lead by example.

How about Notch donates a million and still does more than all of those Kotaku commenters combined. Or better yet maybe he'll just start up his own charity where you don't worry about the majority of the money going to "operating costs".

I hope they get some new writers, they have the engine and tools to do something fantastic but the writing in D:OS was mediocre at best.

We hope their project is successful, despite the controversy that they've stirred, and we think that people should lighten up on them a little. They look like a passionate team of people who want to make a spectacular game.

Hahahah yep ok sounds legit.

I'm sorta interested in this but I'm struggling to get an idea of how the game plays over a longer period of time. I can see myself getting bored of just mining and trading pretty quickly, what else is there to do? I was surprised to see that player co-op options are extremely limited as that would have been one of the main draws for me. Can I eventually buy a capital ship and run around acting like a terror? What sorts of activities are there outside of mining and mapping?

I think they wont be as successful then next time around. they really burned a lot of people with that Draconian DRM they are using.

I really doubt many are going to jump all over this one.

Denuvo isn't really draconian DRM, it is just executable encryption and doesn't affect anyone but pirates. Due to the way it functions, it doesn't cause crashes or prevent legit owners from playing.

It's been cracked for DA:I now but I think demand for LOTF is pretty low so I'm not sure anyone will bother. The game itself had all sorts of problems and was a B effort at best.

Anyone ever have any legal dealings with a city over potholes? Hit a major one last night that blew out my new tire. So I have to take it into the shop today to get it replaced and have the alignment checked and such. Did a pile of research on it last night and am confident I can get them to pony up the dough, but I was just curious if anyone had any first hand experience with this.

I hit a pothole that blew out one of my tires last time I was in Canada (city called Burlington, fix your roads Canadians!). I got them to pay for the tire but it took some back and forth, probably complicated by my American citizenship. I installed the new one so there was no labor portion to worry about which might have been another hang up.

The weapons/armor are outclassed soon after obtaining them, don't bother. Mounts are also a pointless addition to the game in their current implementation.

And all the people I speak to up here keep telling me "Oh this can never happen in Canada" and "Oh but that's in the US, we are so different up here", etc etc. /shakes head. I think there's a problem here with the way the public sees their government in all of this.

Conservatives are the same everywhere. They live in a culture of constant paranoia where everyone not them is a boogeyman. Anyone with half a brain - non-conservatives - fully expects this sort of behavior from them to begin with. What really disturbs me is how the companies claim there's no need for such legislation to begin with because they're already designing their networks to spy on people. Is this thew model for privacy going forward? That is to say, none at all. Good timing then I suppose as I spend more and more time offline as I get older. I really need to immigrate to a country where these things aren't take for granted. Any suggestions?

Somewhere without internet.

Co-op adds all sorts of development complexity, I would rather they not do that and just focus on the core singleplayer experience that they're known for.

You're wasting your time with LittleMe and Cutter, they have a number of crackpot theories about vaccination and government conspiracies. It's paranoid delusion and you won't reach them.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

DA:I feels like the DA2 team trying to move back to DA:O without anyone from the DA:O team to hold their hand and show them the way. I don't mind a short game if the content is meaningful but this goes the other direction. A bunch of banal content designed to inflate game time with a very short story. The amount of superficial elements in the game is bordering on comical. Nearly every quest is resolved by fighting and the amount of quests without even text dialogue is kind of alarming. The story itself probably would've been better served by a 40 page choose your own adventure book. The ending is a big let down and really gut punches the build up they had going.

I liked the game because there aren't many RPGs on the market and your first time checking out the various zones was fun but I'm bouncing pretty hard off it trying to do a second run. It just feels superficial and without substance, just makes me want to replay DA:O instead.

I don't regret the money spent on it but after finishing the game and thinking about it I can't say I loved or even particularly liked it either. A few memorable moments in the story, a lot of annoyances from the AI/UI and not much else to take away. Also this game has the clunkiest CQC I've ever seen, so glad I played ranged.

That aside, I'm happy that they're moving in somewhat of the right direction instead of doubling down on DA2 bullshit.

Good luck with that one. C'mon Gabe hurry up with SteamOS. Pretty please? Or at least give us HL3 or something
Hopefully MS support will not run out on 7 for a while.
I really hate 8

I am really hoping SteamOS isn't another in a long line of dropped Valve projects because I barely use anything Windows specific anymore outside of games.

There is more than enough ammo to use against government idiocy without going into the realm of fantasy about UFOs and 9/11 being a plot by the Bushes and whatever.

Too inconsistent with the offerings. Some months they did weird repeats and even skipped some platforms. Sony didn't do great this year either but Microsoft as usual half assed it.

More useless bloat in their OS... as expected.

On this we are in full agreement.

Microsoft's treatment of PC gaming over the years is one of the biggest missed opportunities I've seen and its all the more glaring because its on their own turf.
