Will teach them to buy games at launch!

Someone failed to read the article I see Specifically the part where he addresses that attitude and why it helps to create an environment where companies like EA can get away with it.

My ps4 isn't boring at all , after ac4 i have , injustice, nba 2k14, killzone, resogun, flower,contrast, pinball arcade, skylanders, Lego marvel, trine 2 in 3d, escape plan, need for speed rivals, trine in 3d is wicked awesome. Your ps4 must be broke, you should take it back.

Listing everything available doesn't mean it all appeals to a buyer. Skylanders for my 5 year old maybe? I knew the score on console launches so I'm not upset about it, it was just an offhand comment. I have high hopes for 2014 with The Order 1886, Infamous and so on.

First to say FUCK 'EM!

Why? You want to get the PC version rebadged for full price? The definitive edition is the PC version with some reworking on the hair animation and other silly stuff.

Easy way to stop that from happening ever again. Tell him to go to your nearest auto parts supply store and pick up a spray can, tube, or can of silicon emulsion(it's what the material is, actual name varies by brand). Apply to rubber on doors, and that's that.

Haha yeah, I gave him some suggestions already, unfortunately he's the sort of guy who hires people to install blinds in his house. Great with programming and stuff, not so good with his household and cars

People change careers all the time for many reasons. You can do a lot better than the gaming industry sadly, the wages are shit for many positions comparatively, it really is a labor of love.

I don't know if the demand for the PS4 is just that crazy that they can't keep stock or if Sony isn't shipping that many units. It sells out everywhere within minutes around here. The Xbox One I can find stock pretty easily, not sure if Microsoft is just doing a better job of supplying retailers or if demand is lower. I think MS was smart in doing that lame Day One edition stuff, people seem to eat up artificial scarcity of electronics for some reason. Be interesting to see if it keeps up momentum.

Both consoles are pretty boring right now though, this is why backwards compatibility is nice because once you get through AC4 and maybe 1-2 other games that's it for a long time.

Some awesome football games on the weekend, great marketing for the NFL.

My neighbors car was an icecube this morning, I guess he left it outside last night. I was putting dirt down on the road in front of our house and noticed him struggling to get into it so I went over to give him a hand. Doors frozen solid, hinges would not budge. I finally got his trunk open and he was able to lower the backseats, crawl into there and start the car so it could warm up. Fun times. It's supposed to drop even further tonight, not fit for man nor beast.

"why Angry Birds is free"....because IAP? It doesn't take a genius to see the formula. F2P apps with lopsided IAP models that are slightly obfuscated from iPhone users who are bad at math which seems to be most of them.

News Comments > Hitman Game Cancelled [Updated]
3. Re: Hitman Game Cancelled Jan 6, 2014, 10:45 Verno
 
I thought it was fairly mediocre but I only played a few hours on the PS3 version before getting bored. You could turn off most of the assists but the levels themselves felt like overly detailed, linear affairs from my brief exposure to it. It was certainly nothing like Blood Money and that's what I want from a Hitman game.

Everything is going mobile for casualbux, the industry is getting depressing again.

I am well aware of these criminals and their broken software thanks. Software piracy of steam games is easy, so you have made no valid point. Steamworks just burdens legit customers.

Also 6 million + copies of the witcher (DRM free) prove you wrong.

I understand your point about platform unification and Steam with regards to an open platform like the PC but I don't think we would have much of a market without it. I remember how ridiculous DRM was getting before Steam became popularized and for awhile the PC was in serious trouble. Most other companies seem to be trying to make their own anyway so I'm glad we have a mostly benign "dictator" in the form of Steam.

I do however try to support developers who release DRM free products like CD Projekt.

Sometimes you really need to lighten up, Blue.

You made some retarded comment about how people with Xboxes had small dicks or something. Yeah Blue really needs to protect your right to freely be an idiot Rolleyes

I don't see why guys are e-peening over this all the time - all it really amounts to is a glorified guessing game. You could use a Magic 8-Ball and guess as good as those who pore over stats for hours on end!

It's just for fun and no one is really epeening anything, it's just for bragging rights.

Also people who guess with an 8 Ball won't do as well as people who understand the game and follow it IMHO

Yeah I had a fantastic day, 14-2 as well but it wasn't enough to catch me up. One bad week took me from a first place tie to 10th. Don't feel bad though Blue, the margin separating people isn't that high.

Not sure if BTI tracks playoffs separately or if its all in, maybe Bats can shed some light on that since he used it last year.

30. Re: On Sale Dec 23, 2013, 23:39 Verno
 
Maybe it's just my perception but it seems like the big third party publishers are participating in the Steam sales less and less as time goes on, presumably to push their own services or to sell DLC. I've picked up some good indie titles in this sale but almost nothing in terms of third party games that I wanted. I'm not disappointed or anything but I hope it isn't a continuing trend.

So why does David Suzuki have 5 children if he thinks there's an overpopulation problem? And he has 4 homes, yet the rest of us should have a small carbon footprint.

Hahaha oh man that's classic, I had no idea. Do as I say, not as I do apparently.
