That lawsuit was utterly clueless. It's hard to claim the Unreal engine sucks when you have so many examples of not only successful games, but critically acclaimed games that came one after another.

Oh and it's only appropriate for me to say again, that I would REALLY like to know how much money Blizzard has actually made off the RMAH. Something we are unlikely to ever learn...

Not only that but it won't stop them from also charging for expansions. With a RMAH any expansions should be free, because the game is paying for itself.

I just find it so frustrating, because i've always loved Diablo games, and the actual game play on this one is not bad at all.

They just completely lost the thread when they decided to tune everything around the damned auction houses.

So I figured 'what the hell, I'll try this out', after not playing for a few months.

I log in, and see the auction house is down. I look at general chat and people are talking about a gold dupe. I go to the forum, and yep, there was a gold dupe live after the patch went up. Go to sell money on the ah, cancel it, and it would give you double back.

Yep, that corporate merge with Activision really worked out well for them. I'm glad they made Diablo 3 online-only to stop things like dupes from happening. Might have worked if their programmers and testers weren't dupes.

Only took them what, 10 years?

I know right? Nothing pisses me off more than downloading games fast.

The Bioware that made KOTOR doesn't exist anymore.

Bethesda's viral marketing is as deep as their plot-lines.

Portal came out yesterday, and today Left4Dead 2 came out. No Portal 2.

This actually runs fairly well using Arch Linux, the latest standard version of Firefox, and an nvidia graphics card.

If nothing else it's worth it for the massively improved load times for the Linux version of TF2. It went from taking roughly 3-4 minutes to have the game ready to actually load the server browser, to taking under a minute. It seems like map changes go much quicker now as well.

Not sure about the Windows version, I've only played it on Linux since it came out.

I still find it lame that they're basically ripping off the 'black oil' from X-Files. Whatever though. They made Enemy Unknown, and as long as they keep making real strategy games I will just ignore the shooter.

I found another way to download it. Navigate to the index page, and use the link in the top left corner.

Well, it could have been worse. Could also have been better. At least they're getting to work on putting Homeworld up on GOG (at least, that's what I assume from the statement.)

As for them developing a new Homeworld, I don't really see it happening. Gearbox has never made an RTS, or even anything like it. I would imagine if they judge the interest big enough, they'll farm the IP out to someone (Relic perhaps?)

Creston

Never underestimate ego and arrogance. Bethesda had never made a isometric turn based RPG before either, but that didn't stop them from buying the Fallout franchise and converting it into a shooter.

I can understand the point about them coming in late on DNF and trying to wrap it up, but giving them cover for Alien Colonial Marines is utterly ridiculous. They were the ones that got the contract. They did not come in on a half-finished project. It was theirs to screw up, and screw it up they did.

I hope the 'many worlds' interpretation of quantum mechanics is true, because then it means there is a universe in which companies like Looking Glass made it, and companies like Gearbox went bankrupt.

Good. I don't think a couple of no-name developers have earned the right to have a franchise like Homeworld just handed to them on a silver platter.

The problem with these mega-publishers is that they sacrifice everything for quarterly profits. You notice they aren't announcing a projected loss of money, just not as much as they promised their investors.

The mindset of large corporations need to change. They're so concerned with posting a good quarter that they'll literally screw over the entire long-term future of their companies to make one quarter look good for the shareholders.

Project Unity seems like an awful lot of effort to get the same results as a modded Xbox 1 with emulators on it.
