Yeah it's 180 bucks for all 3 versions, but is more Blizzard goodness really a bad thing?

yeah I too believe Blizzard should be charging like $100 per game, not just $60, I mean we all have to keep in mind it's a "Blizzard game" we're getting - easily worth the premium price. Dead

$60? $180? Damn!

Yeah I'm waiting till this one drops to a more reasonable price.

Fixed. You want to play all three factions, right?

800,000 preorders LOL... so much for "I'll never buy this game because of
* the missing LAN support
* the battle.net requirement
* Blizzard's greed to sell one complete game for the price of three
* lack of innovation in this game
* the sky is blue"

I'm expecting a massive wave of whiners hit the web and all its forums when the game finally goes online and causes a battle.net collapse.

after all the years of WOW-cashcowing 100+ million bucks must be nothing for Blizzard.

News Comments > Eschalon: Book II on Steam, Sale, New Demo
3. Re: Eschalon: Book II on Steam, Sale, New Demo Jul 12, 2010, 22:15 Lord Tea
 
it has been out since may and I beat it with a mage some time ago. Runs on very low end machines. It's a cute, old school single character RPG with unusually high replay value imo (there are plenty of nice skills to explore and combine...). That said, it was a bit too short/easy for my taste, and its ending pretty much forces you to get Book III if you want to know how the story concludes (it's a trilogy). Having played Book I (which is very similar but lacks some details such as weather effects) is optional and not required for Book II. $20 is about right for this indie game.

The internet as it is, is at a crossroads whether people believe it or not. It's not all that dissimilar to the age where "mr.casual" got online back in the early to mid 90's. The difference is, is at this point we have the "being anonymous" is still the best thing going.

nice statement but I'm not buying it. As I said, hundreds of millions of people are using facebook, and lots of them are even posting their lives on the site. That's far from "being anonymous", and, mind you, this "openness" could one be of the reasons for Blizzard to come up with the stupid idea of Real ID. "People are posting their lives on facebook, so it can't be that big of a deal to have them post their real names on our forums."

Mashiki Amiketo wrote on Jul 10, 2010, 20:21:
RealID may be back, but they're going to have a lot of problems with governments world wide unless they're explicitly clear on what information can be divulged. And burying something in a click-through ELUA or ToS are not legal in most places. It's moving now that ELUA's and ToS are not binding at all, and that's because of two things. First being most people can't understand the language(I have problems, and I can read and interpret legal documentation). The second is to whether you can make a document like that binding on a "click-through" basis.

good point, but do you really believe the folks at Blizzard haven't done their homework before bringing Real ID to the table? They know that the concept of Real ID is legally possible. People having problems grasping what is in an EULA or ToS is an entirely different story.

I guess humans will accept anything as long as they are gradually conditioned into it. Wise choice Blizzard. I recommend next time you have an evil masterplan to not even announce it. Just do it, slowly, covertly.

If I meet someone in real life and exchange names, it is MY CHOICE to exchange names. I know that with exchanging my name the guy or girl will probably look me up on Facebook and know 50 times as much about me than when we met. I don't care.

yeah, if you think about what you just said one more time then you should know how dangerous Facebook in its current state and form is. Not every person you meet is your friend. "Oh let's look up the files of the guy I just met - everything is there for the taking anyway".

Eldaron Imotholin wrote on Jul 9, 2010, 21:50:
WHY did having to post something on a forum have to be similar to the above mentioned choice?

this has been covered in a different post. And, frankly, it's Blizzard's forum, they make the rules there (as does Mr. Zuckerberg at Facebook by the way). Lucky you, they still can't force you to register or post, in both instances.

nah, why should I do that... I have neither a facebook account nor do I post or follow anyone on twitter. And I couldn't care less about Blizzard.

what would you expect them to do? march out into the streets with torches and pitchforks?

oh i know - they should write their congressman.. yeh thats it

march out into the streets, yes. Save torches and pitchforks for later if needed. Let's not underestimate the power of the people, OK?

I like how everybody is blaming Apple for those "reception issues" while it's absolutely obvious that it's not Apple's fault, but AT&T's. Do some research, ask people in other parts of the world - same phone, different carrier, no reception issues whatsoever. Face it: AT&T's network is garbage and the only cause for the problem. And Apple can only solve it by dumping AT&T, period.

has GTA 4 been decrapified (no goddamn DRM except the steam one and are those like 27 required registrations/accounts gone)? $5 Sounds like a steal but I can wait longer if they force me to.

* Facebook serves 570 billion page views per month (according to Google Ad Planner).
* There are more photos on Facebook than all other photo sites combined (including sites like Flickr).
* More than 3 billion photos are uploaded every month.
* Facebook’s systems serve 1.2 million photos per second. This doesn’t include the images served by Facebook’s CDN.
* More than 25 billion pieces of content (status updates, comments, etc) are shared every month.
* Facebook has more than 30,000 servers (and this number is from last year!)

now let's imagine how much faster the whole world wide web would be without all the junk that's being sent and received by all those facebook servers...
One third of all the spam I'm getting on my .edu email account are invitations to join the facebook army - from people I've never heard of.

For the first time, play DUNGEON SIEGE on high-def consoles

What's a high-def console?

that's a silly marketing phrase, HD = 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080. I highly doubt that any of the current consoles are able to render all the DS3 bells/whistles at those resolutions, especially the 1080 one.
