The user scores seem to be trending lower than the critical metascore surprisingly.

I'll keep an eye on it but my time in beta didn't impress me and the sub fee makes me balk.

Fuck the bots and the people using them.

I've been hearing about this a bit but just how bad is the botting problem?

Right, it's not, but I don't think it's a sign of any deeper failure than the readily apparent fact that they're stuck in second place. I doubt it can be used to extrapolate any supplier or stocking issues.

Their CFO already admitted that they're scaling down production due to retail overstock, the other bit was just my personal speculation that they were channel stuffing for press releases and that's why they were reporting shipped.

You guys seem to make more of the shipped to figure than I think it merits. You know Sony did the same with PS3 until late in its life, when it achieved more-or-less parity, right?

I don't think it's a particularly accurate way of reporting sales, not when Sony did it or when anyone else does.

Some poeple seem to be missing a point here. Sure the game works great with a controller, but thats not the issue. The issue is that the developers LIED and claimed the game would work well with KB&M.

Oh man he capitalized lied, this must be a pretty big deal

Actually it seems to work so far with KB/M. I don't think its idealc compared to gamepads but its improved from the last game. Have you played this?

The biggest sin I've seen so far is Xbox prompts for buttons which is a silly oversight but not the end of the world. The changes they made to the lighting engine are really unfortunate too but that's a design thing that isn't specific to the PC version.

Seems like a pretty reasonable review that echoes most of the things I've heard about the game, both good and bad. I'm glad I decided to wait and see on this, maybe in a year I'll check it out when they drop the sub price and the kinks are worked out.

Google to end forced G+ integration, drastically cut division resources

Thank fucking heavens. I am so sick of going to Youtube, being asked to create a G+ profile or have it ask me which user I want to be when I only have one friggin account there. It's a shame because I find some aspects of G+ to be worthwhile but a stupid name and their poor handling ruined it.

Actually the more interesting thing I found was that the devices division gross margin is down despite revenue being up. Maybe the surface/etc crap is dragging that down. There was only a single question about the Bone from investors but the CFO basically said they need to let retailers work down inventory for awhile so they're scaling back production which doesn't say good things for Bone demand.

Microsoft continues to report shipped to retailers figures too which makes me wonder if they channel stuffed and retailers aren't happy about it. A few of the local stores I've seen entire pallets of them just laying around collecting dust. Microsoft really needs to work on cutting the price but I just don't see how they do it without eating a loss, maybe lose Kinect since its floundering.

There's something I don't get about this story. My understanding is that Battlefield 4 PC has around 20 licensed ranked servers providers, none of which are EA. So, are they buying new hardware to be run by other companies? Or is this news that only effects console gamers?


http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-4/rent-a-server

Yeah I don't really understand this either. Maybe there was some sort of stat tracking bug related because the servers poll and report to a bunch of EA servers for stats.

Still no Tab Mix Plus for Chrome so Firefox for life.

What does TMP do that isn't built into Chrome?

It gives you a ridiculous level of control over tabs, how they open up, how they close, opens new tabs for different domain links within a page and so on. There are several different Chrome extensions that mimic it but none have the full range of features. Firefox hasn't been memory heavy for a long time either unless you load it up with unnecessary stuff.

It's been a while since some "journalist" dug this dead horse up. Polygon must be desperate for hits.

Its funny, when Ben Kuchera was fired from the PA Report I joked that "Polygon should hire him lol". It is a collection of every smug, failed, industry wanking jerk in the biz. Polygon is fucking awful in every way and just needs to disappear.

A score at least gives you a ballpark as to how someone feels about it. Do I want to read several pages of review just to get a gist of how someone feels about a game? Ain't no one got time for that.

Nah I disagree, I always make time to read about things that I'm spending money on. A score tells me very little and the metrics are so fucked up these days, I'd rather read an opinion than a number. The only thing I use a score for is determining whether or not something is a complete waste of time or worth reading about, that's what Metacritic is good for.

I'm doing a split pea/ham soup tonight, thinking about some dumplings or maybe a baguette as a side. My girlfriend hates thinking about dinner but planning them is one of my favorite things to do. I've never done lamb chops before, you should post the recipe sometime.

It's all kind of pointless. These are the shows and episodes you can already buy on DVD. What I really want is the stuff that's currently on TV. Day-of, day-after, week-after... That'd all be fine with me but this is three years. Who cares.

I don't know, HBO has a pretty big and high quality back catalog. Their DVDs and Blurays are also insanely expensive, the only time I ever buy them is if Amazon does lightning deals. Stuff I care about getting same day I tend to get myself so I dont have to worry about commercials.

Are you kidding me? Removing my post about Cutter? He's an admitted liberal from Canada who insults Americans constantly here and you remove MY post for stating simply not to take him serious?

This site... unbelievable.

I didn't see the post but it was probably a no-content, personal attack type like your silly post below this one. Cutter has his posts removed all the time for the same reasons so there is no double standard. If you don't like this website there are many others on the internet but we both know you'll stick around
