So, is the Far Cry 2 pack for $4.99 worth it?

I've been through stronger hurricanes growing up in Jacksonville, NC. My father still lives there and he mentioned it was nothing. I'm actually happy I moved to northern Minnesota where I really don't have to worry much about natural disasters.

Oh nice. DK2, yeah gonna have to grab that.

Be careful. If you have Windows 7, apparently it doesn't work. Lots of complaints on the reviews about incompatibilities with Windows 7.

I wish Newegg still had brick and mortar stores instead of just the online store. I miss the Newegg that was down the road. *sigh*

Aren't you thinking of Egghead Software?

After my last customer service nightmare with Valve, Steam won't be installed on a single system in our house. In fact the site is completely filtered so none of the systems that connect to the router, yes even friends that come over for LAN parties, will be able to even reach it. Could care less about all the games that are still on my account, it'll remain unused. Valve can get bent...

So what digital distribution service will you move on to next? I hate to say it, but it seems society is moving in that direction....

Mozilla's products have gone to shit since they're new version number scheme. What really pushed my button was Thunderbird going from 3.6.x to 5.0 and the shitty Aero theme the put on it. There were so many threads on their support forum about not being able to see shit because it made the menus and buttons transparent. Finally someone put out a new theme that disabled the Aero transparency and made it look like 3.6.

Now Firefox and Thunderbird 6.0 come out today, Thunderbird's default theme still looks like transparent ass, and after upgrading to Firefox 6 I have several addons that don't work (just like when they went from 4.0 to 5.0). If I'm going to have to go through this shit every update, I'm going to start looking for a new browser and email client.

What? You expect your addon to work every time a new browser update it released? It's ALWAYS been that way. If Mozilla handed out every new version of FF to addon developers prior to releasing it to the general public, we'd be waiting longer! Rolleyes

Might want to check your post. The 1.0 version isn't available on Impulse yet. If you have the Pre-order beta installed, do not uninstall or you may not be able to install it again. As of last night (and apparently the link as well), it hasn't been updated. The Devs have been posting on their forums that they are still working with Impulse to get it patched. And, the good news is those that have it installed via Impulse will have keys available soon that will transfer their game over to Steam. You better believe I will be jumping Impulse's ship.

The amount of overreaction here is really quite funny. Honestly, how many of you are never connected 24/7?

You'd be surprised about the infrastructure in rural areas. I, for one, am never on 24x7. Based on my router logs and experiences prior to doing IT maintenance from home, I have drops from my ISP often.

But it's not just that, as a previous person mentioned what about these companies? When Silent Hunter V first came out, I was dropped so much because of issues on their end, that I stopped playing for a month or so.

This guy is an idiot. I'm sorry, but I didn't buy this desktop replacement laptop to "always" be connected when I'm at a non-WiFi place like a lake or an airplane. Maybe if we had Wi-Fi EVERYWHERE, then I wouldn't really care, but you're ticking off the people that enjoy mobile gaming where you can't always get a good or solid connection.

EDIT: And I understand there are regular and cellular hotspots, but I don't want to pay extra for those either.

I am torn here. I am a HUGE Diablo fan. I still remember playing the demo back in 96, I think, but I am pretty upset by the lack of mod support and this always on connection. I supported the developers of Silent Hunter V by buying a copy since I loved the series, but I absolutely can't stand Ubisoft's DRM. I realize that the developers probably didn't have a say in it, so I ultimately bought it to support them. Unfortnately in this case, Blizzard is both the developer and publisher and their reasons as to why an always on connection is being implemented just irks me to no end. I also remember when they mentioned back about a year ago that there would be no mod support, but that too is disheartening. I remember reading articles where the Devs were complementing the various mods that came out for Diablo 2 and how they even impressed them.

Blizzard should rethink this and make it so that SP either doesn't transfer over to MP or if it does, the leveled character can either only join their own level's maps in PVP or in non-PVP provided the room allows it. I also don't see why they don't want the mod support. I wouldn't think it would be that hard to turn away a player that has a mod installed or at least provide a separate online env. for the mod.

I was just thinking about Civ V the other day. I was thinking that the next Civ game should use Frozen Synapse's simultaneous turn based system.

I've been wanting this to go on sale, but after looking at all of the nickel and dime DLC for it is kind of putting me off wanting it. Even for $17 I feel like I'm only buying part of the game. I wonder if they're going to put together a Civ V Complete or GOTY that includes all DLC. I can wait longer, it's not like I have a shortage of games to play.

Wait for the Steam XMas sale. It will almost certainly bundle everything for cheap.

I'm sure this is going to be a stupid question, but does it have SP or is it just a MMO?

The Cliffnotes version of all this is that EA WILL be able to get away with this for BF3. Unfortunately, its probably going to hurt them in the long run as their other franchises which are not "have to have; AAA" titles. So let the eschew Steam, and its user base for now. People will vote with their dollars in the long run.

It just sucks that they obviously put a lot of effort into going big on PC but now they're going to ignore its largest and best service.

If the game ends up a sales disappointment we all know they're not going be to blaming themselves or this idiotic decision, it'll be PC gamers.

Idk, Blizzard seems to be doing OK without Steam

It's nice that they realize the Diplomacy aspect of the game was a joke, but how about finishing up the expansion/sequel, Rebellion already?

I honestly think the Diplomacy stuff is inherently broken, even in multiplayer.

In what way is it broken? I got owned in Diplomacy by the AI once for a diplomatic victory. I really thought I had it in the bag until my planets began revolting and adopting the enemy's cultural side. One of the best gaming moments I had.

Depends. You can get thrown in jail and your kids taken away nowadays if you give a spanking.

It's not illegal unless you get caught. I rarely spank my kids, but if I do so it's because they really did something wrong and the alternatives did/do not work. I was often spanked as a kid and I turned out fine. Just another pussification of America as we know it today.
I'd say getting jailed goes beyond sissyfication of America. And its not necessary to get caught in the act, all it takes is one upset kid complaining to someone such as at school.

Well, any kid can say anything if they really feel like they're being mistreated. I told my kids early on that if they really felt like they had it hard, I'd enroll them in military school and they can see what hard is. But the underlying thing is, how many social services/law enforcement offices in America would really come after such a thing as spanking? In my rural area up in MN, I don't think it would happen as much as say in the Twin Cities. It really depends on where you are.

Good judgement. This is a parental issue, not a state one.

Exactly. I was going to say the same thing.
