Devs: Blah blah PC piracy blah blah game only works playing from the couch blah blah no PC game, PC irrelevant blah usual bullshit devs say
*Alan Wake sells way below expectations*
Devs: We love PC games and we love PC platform! BTW buy our game since we didn't sell enough on consoles, after we have your money we'll tell you to fuck off again.

Nope, not getting this one. Amnesia was all I wanted from a horror game, doubt the whole AW game has as much scare as a single minute playing Amnesia.

I'd argue that it's generally the distributors spouting that bullshit, not the developers. I think most devs genuinely WANT to make a great product. I mean, it's supposed to be their life work and passion, right? It's the distributors who impose unrealistic goals and timelines, and the ones who control the purse strings, and the ones with the investors to keep happy. Devs are doing their jobs so they can feed their families. The real vitriol belongs directed at the distributors. They're the assholes.

Wow, Skyrim's got legs. Bethesda must be cooking their steaks over bricks of cash at their company barbecue.

Well... I've got 160 hours in, with my first and only character. And while I have done almost all of the quest content... there's still wandering and discovering dungeons I haven't been to on the map, and crafting. I can see this pushing 200hours on one character... plus playing with mods here and there...

I can't think of any other recent game that gives that kind of value for the money. And that's without community created quest mods nor DLC.

Even at full price of $50... that's a hell of a deal.

Bottom line... they deserve their "bricks of cash", and I hope other developers and publishers take notice.

Quests never run out. Talk to everyone in every town you visit. You'll never run out of quests.

Jesus Christ! How many weeks in a row can Skyrim keep coming out on top? IGN or somebody recently said COD:MW3 outsold everything in 2011. BULL. SHIT! Skyrim on ONLY PC outsold MW3 on ALL PLATFORMS COMBINED. Fucking sick and tired of publications consistently ignoring the extremely powerful PC gaming community. >:\

Good. Maybe now India can stay the fuck out of everyone else's business. Google needs to ban the entire Indian IP range anyway. Nothing but creepy fuckin dudes from India posting inane and intolerably rude comments to females on Google+. Also, all the spam bots seem to operate out of India. I'll be glad when they cut themselves off from the rest of the internet. Fuck em.

I'm at 158 hours, and I don't think I'm even 1/3 of the way thru the main story. It's really addicting but kind of annoying sometimes..

Like if you're carrying a ton of shit already and are 1lb away from being overencumbered, and then you accidentally get a new quest while traveling to somewhere to complete a previous quest, and you're just like "FFFUUU!!!! Lemme go sell all this shit first...! :\"

Not that you have to take a quest right away, but if you're already in the area... I dunno maybe it's just my completionist attitude that makes me want to do it RIGHT NOW and get it out of the way.

Almost bought Hitman, until I watched some gameplay videos (is not the game I was thinking it was).

The Hitman games are GREAT fun. I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Blood Money is the one that particularly stands out as extraordinarily awesome.

My god peps buying a game then have to make it run probably with all kinds of tweaks and so forth its just one big console game and people are jumping up and down over it saying "game of the year"
This piece of shit can never be the game of the year if you have to be somekind of mini programmer to get it to run probably copy paste this copy paste that gezzz Clown
You're either dumb, a troll, or have a shitty system. The game is one of the most playable games in memory. It's almost entirely bug-free when you consider the scope of this thing. With all of the stuff they managed to pack into it, and there's almost NOTHING that's game-breaking, AND they hit their release target. That's pretty amazing if you ask me. But then, maybe you've never played it.

It's just like the LAA patch that the community hacked up; I've never seen the skyrim process using more than about 900MB of memory, even after hours of playtime. I think Bethesda made that change eventually not because it was necessary, but because it made the community happy.

No, they did it because it was a problem and they needed to fix it. Before I employed the LAA fix, the game was crashing fairly regularly. Luckily it autosaves pretty regularly too. The reason you weren't seeing issues is because you don't have a powerful system that can take advantage of maximum settings. When you use maxed settings (or higher, like many people do through ini edits), you're utilizing more memory. You're running at higher resolutions, using higher resolution textures, with more shit on-screen at once, and more distance visible at a time. It crashed when it ran out of memory, but LAA entirely fixed that.

Nobody who uses Firefox 9 uses Norton.. and those who do, don't even know how to install a toolbar, least alone what it is

First you're like "Firefox users are smart." And then you're like "Firefox users are stupid." Make up your mind.


Oh wait, you think smart users use Norton. *sigh*...

When someone steals your credit card information and racks up charges, a quick phone call and they are reversed.

Credit card info is not safe, at all. The 16 year old at the gas station has access to 100's of #'s everyday.

Keeping your SS# and your bank account information safe is important, credit card info is irrelevant.
Yes, but I would add a caveat. Keeping debit card info is NOT irrelevant. Banks are far more reluctant to fix fraud on debit, after its not their money that's gone its yours. One can usually get the money back, but sometimes after months (and if one is living paycheck to paycheck that can cause a horrible spiral with bounced bills).

With credit card, you don't even have to pay that part of the bill after you notify them, and since its their money they are going to be proactive in investigating the fraud. The credit cards end up doing chargebacks or covering the fraud out of the 3% or so they charge all merchants for all transactions.

As a result, I recommend always using credit cards instead of debit cards, except in a couple situations. The main one is that if someone has issues controlling spending when its on credit instead of deducted directly from the bank. In that case, best to have 2 bank accounts, one of which has spending money and debit card, the other which is main savings with no debit card attached.

Or bank with a local credit union instead of a fucking moneyhoarding bank...

BECU never gives you any problems when something pops up with your debit card. I hope banks go away.
