Whoohoo! Just picked up Skyrim for $40!

Seems that this should be my last purchase for the Christmas sale period since I got Deus Ex:HR for $10 earlier this morning!!!

I can now sit back and bask in my overloaded games list and wonder when I'll actually get around to playing everything... Sweatdrop

You're not doing that already?

Damn these Steam sales....more games than i'll ever play!

;-)

GOG for older drm-free games, Steam for everything else.

Never used impulse or gamer's gate, and have no inclination to.

Yup, I don't have BF3 or COD3, and I have no intention of getting them either.

Loving Skyrim and the free Steam copy of Arkham City that came with my new Nvidia card just fine.

I'm wondering if my excessive amount of saves has had any impact. I've been playing for over 90 hours and have over 1500 saves. Apparently the PS3 version gets severe performance issues after you've created a lot of saves so it's possible the PC version has the same, only you need to make more saves before it becomes obvious.
Forgot to send this to Blue, seen it yet J.E. Sawyer on Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim Save Game Lag Issue?

That was a pretty awesome article. Thanks for popping it up (even if it was a repeat... I missed it the first go-around). I always suspected that something like this was the reason for the large savegame files; nice to hear the designers so candid about it and the issues it presents.

Well, I can't complain about Skyrim ;-)

On a more serious note; most of this stuff is done off to the side; soundtrack, artbook, maps, statues, and trinkets really doesn't take much effort (if any) from the dev team at all, so if the game's content is squandered, I wouldn't blame it on the "extras" used to entice purchase of the official copy of the game. I'd continue to throw that right where it is deserved: the design of the game to begin with.

IMO.

I disagree. If the official product is superior to the free one, people will be more inclined to buy it. Steam is a great example. My friend used to pirate everything and very rarely bought anything. However, he now routinely buys games on Steam due to it being more convenient than pirating. All his games are in one place and can be downloaded and installed with a single click, along with automatic updates.

The thing that most publishers and developers don't seem to grasp is that DRM reduces the value of your game. People don't like entering CD-keys or activating their games or revoking install licenses. Simply put, they don't like jumping through hoops in order to play the games they paid for.

Agree with you 100%. I actually bought the CE of Skyrim not just for the extras, but also to throw my financial support behind a company that actually supports and encourages mods in the PC user community.

Well, that and the dragon statue is kinda kickass... ;-)

But CD Projeckt is doing it right. These guys are awesome. I've bought two copies of the Witcher so far and will be giving out more as Christmas presents, because this kind of goodwill towards gamers deserves to be rewarded.

Agreed. Adjusting the way you do business to add value is the only way to win here. There is no way anyone will ever eliminate piracy. It's just a fact of doing business; something that becomes even more dominant in the Asian markets.

Kudos to them.

I still prefer the first.

Someone once made an oservation that your favorite between the films had to do with which one you saw first. Me, obviously #1. In the Drive in (long hilarious story, but not for here).

Ant, Seph...which one did you guys see first?

Like the other major Zynga games, it entices people to click and play for a few minutes per session before waiting to earn more energy to keep playing—or by paying for that energy to keep playing immediately.

That sounds about as much fun as watching someone saw my dick off. Slowly.

And this is the biggest gaming company in the world. Unbefuckinglievable.

Creston

I know, right? It's hard to believe that there are so many people out there that are willing to part with their money like that.

Somewhat reminds me of those classic gun-games they have in the arcades..."deposit 2 tokens to continue." Only this arcade never closes. Ever.

1. Dragon Shout App for Skyrim Nov 29, 2011, 18:44 ^Drag0n^
 
To clarify: This app is not yet released, but will be shortly. The dev team has opened the website ahead of time to pique interest.

The basic idea is that this acts as a journalling App for Skyrim players, somewhat different from a wiki, in that you can restrict access to your "journal group," and learn from the experiences of others, rather than reading through a straight walkthrough (i.e. it leaves some of the discovery up to you).

Will be available for iOS and Android, and will allow you to log into your account from any of the supported devices.

Kudos on picking this conflict up. Hopefully this antivirus is worth the repeated issues its cause. I'm fine with my avast for now.

As for Skyrim crashing, if I may speak for the silent majority, I've played 27 hours and have had it crash once. Part of that might be because I'm in the silent minority with a killer rig. I haven't heard lots of complaints of Skyrim crashing (due to the fact that most of my time is spent playing Skyrim) but it can't be nearly as bad as, say, Fallout New Vegas.

Yeah, once I figured out it was ThreatFire buggering the thing up, I haven't seen crash one in the game since. It's actually been remarkably stable.

It's kind of sad that we have to have so many layers of security to protect our data and identities; definitely one of the many downsides of firewalls/AV--not knowing if the problem is really the game, or something your AV thinks the Game is doing that it shouldn't.

Argh.

That quote came from when I RTFA, as did the sum total of my knowledge on the subject.
Since I don't live in AU, I must admit to a paucity of knowledge on australian movie making and the tax laws thereof.

Hahaha...Thanks, Dev, and no worries...I'm just curious as to what exactly this thing is.

I was curious how and what government was supporting... well, whores.

Six months prior the pair embarked on a concerted, behind-the-scenes campaign to persuade the federal government to extend the 40 per cent Australian producer tax rebate introduced in 2007,

Turns out the AU gov only applies that to movies, and this dev and others have been trying to persuade them it applies to games too.

Interesting.

Very. Do you have any links on this producer's Tax Rebate? I'm somewhat curious.
