Linux users "completely disable" "permission"? I'm not sure what you mean, but if you're trying to say that most Linux users run as root to avoid typing in passwords, you don't know many Linux users.

Since when does you failing to back up save files qualify something as DRM? That happens with games from GOG, too... Too bad they weren't using Steam Cloud. :p

He's probably referring to GFWL's notorious ability to eat save files. Happened to me as well on Arkham Asylum and Bioshock 2.

Yep, that right there is why I hated GFWL. I remember having the issue on Gears of War and being told by Epic it was because I was playing a pirated copy.. (I wasn't.) Then they had the nerve to wonder why PC gamers hated GoW.

It's too bad Bethesda decided to go the cheap route for Fallout 3. They didn't move anything over to Steam. So the achievements are just gone.

Valve confuses people because people are used to seeing companies that operate purely for quarterly profits to make shareholders happy.

People aren't used to seeing what it looks like when you build a company to outlast the founders' lifetimes.

Good I've held off playing this because I don't feel liking starting over with each patch.

2014 is going to be the year that "early access" either proves itself, or crashes and burns like an airship called Titanic Hindenberg.

There is a lot of games right now that people are waiting on, and most of them got delayed (ha) to this year. Personally I'm done buying these until a few of the ones I did buy get finished up.

I nearly bought DayZ until I read that they think they'll be able to call it beta a year from now. Great for the ppl that don't mind, but count me out.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that non-finished games make up half the chart?

At one time, a PC meant something with a windows operating system, didn't it? As opposed to a Mac,

Not really, it started out being IBM-PC, then people started calling any x86 based machine a 'PC', and Macs were just Macs. Now most people use PC to be a generic term referring to any x86 or amd64 based computer, weather it runs Windows, Linux, BSD, Plan9, or something even more obscure. So basically it had more to do with the CPU the machine was running.

If Valve has a monopoly then why do I have Origin, Uplay and the GoG Installer installed?

The patch fixed every bug in KDE so they stopped development on it. It's now called KDE: Bugfree edition. Upcoming KDE 5 will re-introduce the bugs features so don't worry!


All jokes aside, KDE 4 turned out quite nice, and it's pretty much the only sane desktop option left, IMO.

Really, by now, AMD driver issues are a thing of the past.

Try them out on Linux and get back to me. That is the sole reason I'm sticking with nvidia. Especially with the Steambox on the horizon. AMD would do well by getting their Linux support up to snuff compared to their windows drivers.

Yet if you own Fallout on Steam you do not even need Steam running to play the game. There is no DRM on it.

If you're going to consider digital distribution as DRM, then you might as well call the entire need to have a PC as DRM.

Battlefield 4 was the biggest gaming waste of the year, by far. It's 2013's Diablo 3.

That was the first and last pre-order I'll ever do on a Dice/EA game. I should have known better, but I got BF3 on that humble sale, and thought it was pretty good. I should have realized it only seemed that way because the people who paid full price had a full 2 years to beta test it.
