EA can't even do F2P right, look at the restrictions that's just dumb.

No one complains about how many times you have to play Diablo 2 to get good gear....why complain about 5 hours?

ADD has gotten the best of a lot of you.

That's because you can get good gear in Diablo 2 in 5 hours and go look up what ADD actually is on wikipedia.

That's randomization for you. By the law of averages, you will have at least as much shit as you will good stuff, and then a bunch of so-so stuff (which the player also considers shit) in between. You say they should "take a look at it," but that would mean removing or neutering loot randomization, which is against the core values of the game and hybrid genre they have created (FPS/RPG). It's fine if you don't like it, but there's really not much they can do.

You can have randomization with better base properties, stop making excuses for them. They don't just throw everything into a number blender and pray, they have direct control over the item formulas and drop percentiles. This isn't people wanting something for nothing and it isn't just a drop randomization problem. There isn't a design law that says players can only enjoy good loot if they collect a lot of bullshit too, choices can be compelling instead of boring and obvious.

You don't have to pick up the garbage if you don't want to.

That is a really lame excuse to pass off responsibility to the player. He's not complaining he has to pick up every single gun, he's saying there is too much junk in the stuff he does pick up. It's a common complaint and something they should look at.

I know I'm right and I actually hate that I'm right. It's part of the reason nothing in DC gets done, the GOP is too busy blocking things, the libs are too busy calling everyone a damn racist/woman hater to focus on the shit that actually is important. It's why Barry won, split the country, play the race card early and often, take the focus off the economy and turn the campaign into the GOP and Republicans all being so hateful towards <insert special interest group here>

Not one fuck will be given on race or gender when we're all so far buried in debt from spending money we don't have when we're all fucking poor. Sadly that fact seems to be lost on most people.

You didn't lose because of race alone so no, you're not correct. If you had won then race would be ok I'm sure, all of those white men wouldn't count as a racial thing at all. Your party had no realistic financial plan for the country, a campaign filled with lunatics who want to take away abortion rights and send half the country to a different one because they weren't born here. A tax cut supported by imaginary math was the feather in the Republican cap, not to mention years of filibustering and blockading any form of progress based entirely on bitterness. You wanted to elect a man so out of touch with reality that he thinks that 47% of the country just wants to live on food stamps and steal his tax money, what little he disclosed that he pays in the first place.

Stop abdicating responsibility, you did it to yourselves. Your party ran a shit campaign, many of you posted on message boards like a bunch of frothing lunatics and your party literally adopted a stance that they were going to stop the government from governing the country, pushing the country into ridiculous political deadlock. Stop the Democrats is not a leadership slogan and tells voters that you didn't get the issues.

It speaks to either arrogance or ignorance that people expected to win when you have people who want to do things like set back womens rights and immigration 50 years. You can blame other people all you want but its on every single one of you. The message was loud and clear, people are tired of the antics, get real or get gone.

lol so easy with you. So much hate! You're not related to Bill Maher are you? wah wah wah The GOP's fault, wah wah wah conservatives hate everyone, wah wah wah but but religious people are so bad, except the Muslims who are the ones actually committing crimes based on a book! wah wah wah.

What's sad is instead of talking about any of the actual issues we face, you folks are too busy calling everyone a bigot or hateful who doesn't follow your socialism ideology.

You lost, get over it.

And the lack of a PC version puts this firmly in the "don't give a shit" category.

Says the guy who then post 6 more times in the thread.

Now I bet you someone who "don't give a shit" truly about something is anyone reading you trolling form Rockstar.

Go on, be a man and hold your word, don't read or post anymore in GTAV stuff if you really don't give a shit.

You on the other hand seem to have an unhealthy level of interest in how much he chooses to care or not.

Plenty of people buy the iPad expecting a laptop replacement, too. Idiots. But Microsoft was particularly bad in explaining what RT was.

In general, Tablets can't replace Desktops for productivity. There are even some cases where laptops can't either (due to horsepower... engineering CAD workstations come to mind)

Surfing the Internet, doing some quick e-mails, getting some light entertainment (videos, mobile games, etc.) - Tablets do a fair job of replacing a laptop. Great for the airplane, and hotel rooms on family trips. Or just looking up stuff, while on your couch at home watching TV.

But full on business productivity? Perhaps if the business had a ton of custom apps and their own app store (which is how we manage IOS devices in our enterprise with Mas 360)... but that's a heavy investment in custom apps (which we don't have yet)... and that's still not the same productivity as office on a laptop. By the time one adds a bluetooth or attachable keyboard... one might as well have bought a laptop (Or an ultrabook).

Yup, I hear from people all the time who get tablet envy then end up using 2 or 3 other devices to supplement their expensive tablet. Most people end up needing to do enough odd things that a tablet can't do and end up back at their computer. A smartphone is almost better because at least it has more overall utility.

It's his little protest for people like Creston who still post sigs in the body of their posts as habit from the days long ago. He asked Blue to put a stop to it but Blue only requested that the practice stop; he didn't mandate it. It's kind of amusing really. I figured he would have tired of it by now but he is keeping at it, so I continue to get a little chuckle every time I read a Dades post.

No, that's not what happened. I didn't ask Blue to stop it, I asked him to post a polite request in the OOTB section and a bunch of people got all rude and butthurt as if it was a violation of their constitutional rights.

I don't do it to protest, far from it. I don't type it by hand either, I have a script that auto inserts it now. I hope everyone on the whole website does it, please the more the merrier because once its shitting up every forum post it'll just get it banned that much faster

In fact, there's no rule against adding song lyrics, poems and bible verses to the bottom of every post either. Just giving ya ideas guys!

Oh wait, restore the Start menu via a mod, and it's Windows 7 again with a new task manager and pausable file copy.

Fixed that for you.

the "apps" he mentions are weather, travel, news and finance, which are just portal apps to web content, which is ad supported. you see ads if you go to bbc.co.uk or weather.com, too.

You can use whatever label you want but the fact is that they put ads in the main display of the default apps. Go look at the music app too, its full of ads. That's some tacky crap you would expect from a startup, not Microsoft. Metro is a hard enough sell without even more shit. Ads in the shitter are next, I'm sure someone is working on that somewhere.

WWZ looks like the remake of war of the worlds, right down to the little kids crying, screaming.

never read the book but this looks like a dud to me.

as for Star Wars I fear they'll try to model if after super hero movies too much, it'll end up like Force Unleashed times ten.

Looks like they have completely rewritten the plot and ignored what made the book so great. Fast zombies were awful too, the book had slow ones. The CGI looked laughably bad for a movie that had a two hundred million dollar budget. Pass.

Next you're going to tell me EA didn't remove their games from steam to bump up sales of them on Origin. Of course, EA paid for that and had to re-up them on steam to placate the masses.
Actually no. EA did not remove them. Valve booted them off because then ran against the new ToS for putting games on Steam. Which was if you offer DLC for a game that is on Steam you MUST also offer the DLC on Steam. EA only offered the DLC via ingame purchased/Origin.

Whenever someone mentions this, other people give several examples of games that do the same thing and are still on Steam so I don't really believe it's that simple.
