I love this game.

Do you want to marry it?

They already got a divorce; Activision somehow managed to put him in debt for millions, and Bobby Kotick ate another kitten-puppy hybrid for sustenance.

Hopefully 402 isn't talking out his ass again...

Awesome comic.

DUN DUN- DUN DUN DUN..DUN!!!!!


I wonder if this is a massive hint (or throw-off?) for the next update? I haven't played TF2 in a while but it'd be interesting to see these two classes get new items/weapons...

Poor, poor engies.

News Comments > Greed: Black Border Demo

It's a decent idea, but it's plagued by un-intuitive controls and it gives you almost no idea where you have to go next. Ontop of that, trying to find chests and such is like finding a needle in a haystack (they don't stand out, at all).

I got stuck a few times, even locked in place once, and eventually got stuck where I couldn't figure out where to go (the only door left required a key card...which I already had)

All it needs, however, are several dozens of tweaks to make gameplay intuitive and more fluid.

Neat music, and skill trees, though.

Also, glad to see these small developers (not even sure who developed this?) popping up with new ideas.

'Demo Dick' gives me the impression that he n00btubed in real life, and put C4 on people in their sleep... Perhaps even bunny hopped?

Just picked it up today, for $20 with the Gamestop promo ($40 off MW2 with 2 trade ins)

Game's pretty good online, very smooth and little to no problems.

Only problem I had in the beginning was paying $60 for it. Not the lack of deds, or lack of mods (which does suck, but I don't buy games for mods.)

WoW really needs something like this. There's not one benefit for even being around since Vanilla, or beta.

If I were an AoC player, this would make me somewhat giddy.

Woot.

Hopefully it doesn't come in ~1 year though (Valve)

News Comments > Borderlands Console DLC This Month, PC "Later"
7. Re: Borderlands Console DLC This Month, Nov 9, 2009, 19:12 Rhett
 
Love Borderlands. Have it for PC since release day. Play it every day, for hours on end

Though, this 'zombie' DLC sounded pretty boring, so no loss here. I probably wasn't even going to get it. I do hope they aren't all talk and no action, however, since the PC version could use a patch.

While I hope the people getting laid off find some work elsewhere (don't need any more people without jobs :P)... EA does put out some awful games. I typically avoid them, and have been, for a while now. It'd be nice if their teams of suck would just dissipate.

While they take forever to be released, they, so far, haven't failed to hit their mark. They're so popular and yummy!

If it was candy, imagine how fat we'd all be

Though, if the beta happens in 2010 and all goes well, we may see a release much like they predicted. Or not

BTW if anyone hasn't yet, speaking of Blizz games -- Torchlight feels like an early Diablo 3. Go try it NOW! Support the devs!

Much like the Borderlands release where Steam-buyers had to wait 15 additional hours -- It's extremely unlikely they'll push it forward. Especially since the general consensus is: "This game sucks, don't buy it!"

Maybe just pocket the money and reduce the god damn price to a normal PC game.

I know I'm not gonna play with strangers, but Gearbox already said they are working on / completed a patch to fix that microphone issue, atleast.

There's an obvious Xbox 360/PS3 duping method too, that's not news at all.

Why someone would dupe, get money, and ruin the game is beyond me. I'm not paying $45 to do that shit, good for every little kid or douche that does, though.

News Comments > Borderlands' Firm Street Dates
24. Re: Borderlands' Firm Street Dates Oct 24, 2009, 15:17 Rhett
 
Much like I've seen been said, and said myself (been following this bullshit since thursday):

There's the people who preordered on PC and desperately waited for it to unlock. Then there's the average consumer who has NOT been constantly up to date on the situation like reading Steam/2k/Gearbox forums and knowing that you CAN NOT PLAY regardless of HOW you purchase or access the game, until the 26th. There is NO WARNING on the box, no warning until you install the game and make it UNRETURNABLE under normal circumstances, to almost ANYWHERE you bought it from. Steam users knew exactly what they were in for, but not people who just happened to pick it up in-store and say "Oh, cool, I want this game."

So yeah, that's the major fuss.

The other fuss is that 2K out and out lied to everyone, did NOT do any optimization (likely, unless there's a day 0 patch, but GBX has been busy with events and such), and is blaming it all on sales and piracy.

While the DRM might be doing its job SO FAR (I have heard that the game has been available on private trackers, but I'm doubting that it even works at this point), it's causing so much of a pain to legal owners.

You could say it's all the retailers fault, but when your advertising team is a bunch of goddamn monkeys, who's fault is it really when they put out ALL 3 versions on the same release day as is ALL OVER THE WEB? (see: TV ads, Facebook, etc like below poster says)

It's all one big clusterfuck

Still waiting for Steam release btw two days to go...
