Steam stole all their money a week or two before. Haha.

I have no idea what Ubisoft is trying to do. It's like they're actively trying to sabotage their PC division. They have draconian DRM, they delay PC releases (to their console counterparts), they refuse to give demos (even though they have them on console). I just...sincerely don't understand, both from a business standpoint or a gaming standpoint.

Trion is a good company, at least with what they've shown so far. Even if you don't like Rift, it's polished, they've been quick to throw out meaningful patches and content, and they've shown they listen to their customers.

But I do like Rift...in fact I love it. GOTY for me (until BF3

I actually like Rift too, I think it's a quality game, I just don't play it anymore. I think it has less to do with the game and more to do with me being burnt out on the current crop of MMOs. Hopefully GW2 will change things up a bit, and even if it doesn't, it won't have a sub so I'm much more likely to play it during dry spells.

I put one in a few days ago. Hope I get in, need a new aRPG to hold me over until Torchlight 2, Grim Dawn, and Diablo 3. Lately I've been playing Titan Quest with the Underlord mod, which is a GREAT mod.

I'm getting itchy, when does all the DLC come out?

Was wondering the same thing. They said summer, it's been summer long enough, damnit. Bring on more maps! Hopefully co-op is included.

Let me guess, Epic. It's a futuristic, sci-fi FPS with clunky armor and big guns, that will be ported from console to PC, and it will suck.

I was in the alpha and liked what I saw. I will play the beta and decide. I will most likely be purchasing BF3. I will not be purchasing COD.

Play HL2. Then play DNF. Even if they were "remotely comparable," I don't see how any sane person could say DNF was equal, or even close to, HL2 in any manner. Just because some games share the same characteristics does NOT mean they're on equal footing. There are lots of games that prove that point, I don't think they need mentioning.

Epic hasn't made a good game since UT2k4. If they can remake AND innovate a modern fast-paced non-realistic arena shooter with mods, THEN I might listen to them. Otherwise it's just PR bullshit.

I guess it is Hulu's destiny to lose its programming.

It's really the same story as Steam.

Herp a derp? Steam has posted incredibly growths every year, and it shows no sign of stopping. If you're talking about the recent EA fiasco, I think Steam will more than make up for that in other games (especially indie).

Yeah, that's definitely the console version. You can check out shots on Steam that look much better.

I've also only played the demo, but it seems like playing defensively (taking cards from theirs, or putting one of yours that they need in a pile they can't take) is/can be just as important as offense.

Does this mean I don't have to change my region to the Czech Republic anymore when downloading something during a sales spike?
