I had all sorts of problems getting this to run in fullscreen acceleration on my girlfriends Windows 8.1 box and Popcap support was worthless. Yet another reason I kept my gaming PC on Windows 7. Hopefully they've patched it since because it looks and plays like shit without it.

This game is very satisfying to those of us who like MMOs and want a new one to play. It has similarities to WoW and it differs significantly.

Everyone says this about every MMO though. I'll try it out for myself later and see what it's like.

As far as I know no games on Early Access give any more reason to believe that they won't be finished than any other preorder, or that the contract is any less valid.

Sorry I was out last night and didn't see this until today. There is a big section in the FAQ about release dates and Early Access games themselves about what they are and are not. Specifically the section on "is this like any other preorder?". In terms of informing people if the product will ever be "finished" or not, that's too subjective for Valve to deal with on anything but a case by case basis. There are plenty of AAA games that aren't finished in my opinion too.

Anyways while I think the consumer is short changed on Early Access crap, its up to them to make an informed decision.

What exactly are you informed?

As far as I know no games on Early Access give any more reason to believe that they won't be finished than any other preorder, or that the contract is any less valid.

Every Early Access I've checked out has the big disclaimer on it and a link to this which I read in detail and then decided I would never buy an early access game because IMO they're a raw deal for the consumer.

I think early access sucks, I just don't think its fraudulent.

Right. You don't know so why are you remarking on it?

Well first off, I'll remark on whatever the hell I want whenever I want. Second, it's not really rational to say "fraud, theyre breaking laws!", fail to mention any then act mad when people ask you what law you're talking about. For all I know you're right but I like to read these things for myself and given that it could be a law in any number of countries its not unreasonable to simply ask which one. You still didn't mention what part of this constitutes fraud too.

It's fine to say its a shitty thing and the dev sucks but it isn't fraud. It's certainly a textbook example of the risks associated with early access games but fraud it is not, consumers were well advised of what they were getting beforehand. As for if it breaks any "consumer protection law", no one knows because you didn't mention which one, what jurisdiction, how it applies or etc.

You really don't get how consumer protection laws work, do you? You really have zero clue what fraud is, right?

Errr what fraud? Good luck proving intent on that, it's sold through a third party marketplace where you have to accept the EULA and you are well informed what the risks of early access games are. Your only bet would be a civil suit of some kind because this is clearly not fraud and I have no idea what "consumer protection law" you're referring to, nor how it would apply.

Well said Quboid. I dislike early access and Kickstarter type stuff in general, it is too favorable to the devs and there is little accountability.

There arent a whole lot of games in the pipeline for the 3ds, which says just about everything.

It's a platform with like 40 million units in the wild, people are going to make games for it. Nintendo has to put a lot of resources into trying to save the Wii U, unfortunately the 3DS will suffer for it.

I really wish you could only pay for the channels you want. There is so many junk channels that are either filler-reality TV or duplicate channels that finding quality TV content isn't worth the effort. For the channels you do want they spread those out in to other channel tiers to further bloat the channel count.

Yeah. They make it too complicated on purpose. All I want out of TV is sports but even the sports package doesn't have everything you want unless you get the expensive god tier package. I finally gave up and got an antenna for sports and I do some dubious streaming from some sites. I'd like to do it legitimately but they make it prohibitively expensive and annoying with stupid blackouts and other nonsense.

I'm not expecting much. Mars: War Log was mediocre at best and this doesn't really look any different. I'd love to be pleasantly surprised, though.

Agreed. Mars War Logs was pretty lame (some ok ideas but terribly executed) and this looks clunky as hell too.

You find a few subreddits you like and the site suddenly makes sense. They vary wildly in quality and content.
