* 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.

I finally snatched the Fallout 3 package. That's a lot of gaming for $25.

only $25 for Metro 2033, that's a good deal; it doesn't run well enough on my GTX 285 though

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.

SC2 is not even worth $11 - I might get this when it's under $5... compared to SC1 it's pure arcade.

Battle.net is free for North America, if you happen to live in the regions where it's a monthly sub, too bad so sad!

very sorry to inform you that you have been successfully brainwashed by Blizzard: Because whatever they can do to other regions they could do to the North American region too (charging money for a service is perfectly legal in the N.A. region, should they decide to do so).

Facebook Privacy Settings- How To Fix Your Profile In 2 Minutes.

wait, I don't believe one can delete a Facebook account in 2 minutes (and even if this was possible it wouldn't fix anything because whatever you upload to Facebook is saved forever and thus theirs).

Good thing we all know how Facebook handles the privacy of its users a.k.a. "Dumb fucks"....

Back in '93 Wiz 7 easily took me 40 hours to finish. The final encounters in the "Crypt" dungeon alone took like an hour per battle and there were quite a few...

Legendary stuff

Book II is a must have for me. Indie roleplaying at its best. @kxmode: man, this sounds really good to me!! I haven't played a true scifi RPG since the Buck Rogers series from the early 90's LOL.

they would have been insane to let the release date get any closer to starcraft 2.

so true. Once StarCraft 2 is out no one will give a damn about the greatly disappointing SupCom 2 anymore. Who cares about the AI by the way? Chris Taylor and his cronies are perfectly capable of coding a good game (e.g. SupCom 1, FA, TA) but, as it seems, they have yet to learn the basics about AI programming. Modders are doing a much better job here and modded AIs are widely available for SC1/FA.

The next DRM comes with automatic shutdown if you alt-tab to windows, allows only one install and spawns a security drone that hovers next to your mouse hand with a machete. They'll get it right yet...lousy pirates, ruining gaming for everyone

ROFL!! Yep, hard times for the honest PC gamer...

And yeah, while it's impressive how many patches they're putting out, it's basically all been to do stuff that an AI is SUPPOSED to do straight out of the box.

Creston

exactly what I thought: if they have to release a patch every week or so then it's a bad sign.

because

1) it runs on most computers
2) it's an easy to play hack'n'slash game
3) it can be bought for cheap
4) it has been extremely popular and Blizz is still supporting it
5) the Diablo III hype brings people back to playing D II

I never really liked it by the way; beat it once, then moved on to something new. I wasted months to years of my life with Diablo I though

Because Stardock games cost 20-50 times less to make

MattyB wrote on Apr 16, 2010, 11:54:
they've invested too much time/money in a system to throw it away early on, so they'll keep flogging the horse and trying to justify it.

Pride comes before a fall, and all that.

within the context this all makes perfect sense.

That said, it doesn't take 20-50 times the cost of a Stardock title to make a game a good one (all Stardock games I own are kickass), but it takes a lot of money to develop these new DRM "technologies" - money that the honest gamer has to pay for his own punishment.

Naval: Focuses on Naval units.

What a joke. There are 6 (six !!) naval units for all factions combined in the whole game. Headscratch
