See that's where you're both wrong. It's not a woman's purpose to tend to my needs so that I can do whatever I want. It's everybody's purpose to tend to my needs so that I can do what I want!

Damn it, Jong-un, shouldn't our sanctions keep you off our Internet?

I never understood why husbands get their wives into gaming. Doesn't that just mean that no one does any work around the house then? Is your place dirty all the time now? Ordering fast food all the time now?

Especially the ones that get their wives into MMO games. Like, lol...

Yeah, who the hell said I'm allowed to have fun, too? Only my husband is supposed to do that. I'm supposed to cook and clean and make sure he's happy and healthy, damn my own wants and needs. If I wanted to enjoy life, I should've been born a man.

Seriously, dude, look at a calendar some day. This isn't 19-fucking-60, and I'm not Betty Fucking Draper.

I hope like hell you're single if you think a woman's purpose in life is to tend to your needs so you can do the things you want to do.

"Persson—better known to his global army of teen-age followers by his Internet handle, Notch—has a raggedy, un-marketed charm."

We still live in a world where people think only teens and kids play games?

GW2's Super Adventure Box is one of the best holiday events I've seen any MMO do ever. It's obvious they put a ton of work into it, from the sound track to the sound effects to the pixelated dancing flowers and Mario-style mountains.

It'll be hard to be even as good as SR3 that I'm going to hold to hesitant optimism on this one.

I posted a comment there 5 minutes ago,

"So, EA paid you how much for this review?"

but I refreshed, and I see my comment has been removed now. Haha.

Silence the truth!

I can see your comment when I refreshed. It may just be commenting software code problems. In fact, since they use Disqus, that's very likely.

Ea should be sued into the ground. For the love of God! there surely must be some firm out there with a set of balls who will sue these liars.[

I had an impossible idea last night. Someone with money to burn who can weather a lawsuit makes this awesome game trailer (of "in-game footage") of the most amazing game you can imagine. Give it a great feature list, then market the hell out of it. But come release, what you get is Pong.

Refuse refunds, set the money you made from the "game" aside, and wait for the lawsuit. Make it clear your sole purpose of doing it is to force the lawsuit and lose. Once you've lost, now there's precedent for losing a suit when you sell a game that doesn't work as intended.

Pipe dream, obviously. (Even more obviously, I'm not an attorney).

And if you purchased this broken scam of a product from these douche bags, you are part of the problem.

There's no one to protect us in this industry but ourselves. Software isn't bound by the same consumer protection laws in the US as other products. Publishers want us to see software as a service, so they claim they have the right to limit our access, to refuse refunds on a non-working game, and to prevent us from reselling and loaning them out.

But then they want the benefits of treating it as a product, too, telling us we have to buy one copy per person in the household. They get the benefits of both but none of the downsides.

Since publishers can do whatever the hell they want, the only recourse we have to protect ourselves is to vote with our wallets.

It is possible, EA. You're so full of shit.

Your programmers would not have done it like that. Your programmers would've made switches for everything, and you can just switch it "ON" or "OFF", otherwise your programmers aren't real programmers.

So, just stop fucking flying to us already, you mofos.

You have to code your game from the ground-up with multiplayer. It's not as simple as checking "multiplayer Y/N," so I'd be very surprised if they wrote the code twice to account for both. What they *could* do if they were inclined to offer the game offline would be to provide a server-emulator that can be run in the background.

Looks cool. I'm so happy to see non-medieval fantasy RPGs, and I love a nice-looking 2D isometric game.

As long as people are willing to buy the game anyway, there's no reason for them to pay attention to the petition. Don't like the DRM? Don't buy the game. That will send them a very clear message.

Why is the card holder not being charged for the chargeback? It's his fault for having his card stolen in the first place.

Card numbers get stolen through database breaches far more often than cards get stolen out of wallets. It's not the cardholder's fault if a company they ordered from fails to protect their data.

I couldn't sleep last night, so I played it for a couple of hours. It's definitely odd.

If he's concluding that every person who tried out the demo and didn't buy the game would have instead bought the game if there were no demo, he's making the same mistake companies make when they deduce that all pirate downloads = lost sales.

Demos will keep players from wasting their money on mediocre or poor games, true, but you shouldn't be trying to sell mediocre or poor games to the public. Make good games you want to play; don't make crap only because you're hoping to fleece the public out of some cash before they wise up. If you're going to do that, be honest with what you are: a con artist.

On their screenshots page, I see nothing to lead me to believe it is sci-fi instead of fantasy.

There is a large rhino animal, which would be trivial to kill with a gun from the 1800s, and what looks like several shots of a sorcerer in some kind of split-tailed robes, and that's it. The rest are golden vistas of something vaguely Dr. Seussish.

It's sort of a Firefly-ish sci-fi/fantasy/western theme. The cinematic trailers show the look more clearly, with spaceships and anti-grav cycles and guns.

Actually this game does look like WoW. But that's because the studio was started by 17 ex-Blizzard employees.

I love the look, personally, and I'm quite excited for the game.

I guess the last C&C game wasn't enough for them to be convinced the always online DRM isn't working

6 million+ Diablo III sales says otherwise.

Unfortunately, I suspect those of us who refuse to buy always-on DRM single player games are a vocal minority and the game will sell just fine.

Waiting for reviews, too many unknowns and they've been playing it way too close to the vest. No real gameplay previews, everything we've seen looks incredibly canned and scripted, constant delays, etc. I loved Bioshock but they really need to start showing off the game.

The PC Gamer preview I read this morning makes it sound very heavily scripted. I don't mind scripted games, but if it's going to be more of an interactive movie than a game, I'll probably wait until the price drops in half.

While I agree with you that RAGE sucked, let's be real. Your list of games sucks just as much -- you countered a mainstream dumbed-down AAA title by listing a bunch of other mainstream dumbed-down titles.

Dude, Saints Row The Third is incredible! So much style and entertainment and humor packed into one title.

I wasn't really trying to counter RAGE. I was just asked what I thought was a good game. For me, it's about being entertained and not feeling like the developers completely forgot how to actually make a game work on a PC.

So what DO you think is a good game?

Assuming we're sticking with newer, action-oriented stuff (and not older stuff like Half-Life 2 or indie titles or MMOs):
Borderlands 1/2
Saints Row The Third ( <-- seriously, one of the best games I've played in years in any genre)
The Elder Scrolls/Fallout games
I even enjoyed Crysis 2 more than RAGE. At least I didn't want to scream at my monitor when I played it.

It's called RAGE or...

Try a budget shooter once in a while, you will be surprised.

Did ... did you actually play RAGE? Because the only thing good about that game was the title accurately reflected my feelings by the time I was done. That was ... holy crap that was a shitty game. There were two games last year I uninstalled the very second they were finished: RAGE and Dead Island. (And I would've uninstalled Dead Island faster, but I was playing with friends).
