Fuck Square. Seriously. It's like they are using a magic eight ball to run that place or something.

"How many copies of Tomb Raider did you sell?"

"Answer unclear, ask again later."

Let's look back on the game in a year or more before deigning the patch a success. D3 1.0 was "fun" for a short time too.

I don't totally disagree with this sentiment, however I don't think there is any real doubt that this patch was a major improvement in the eyes of people who were unhappy with the game.

Strong reviews so far. Obsidian bugs aside of course. Looking forward to giving it a go.

Yeah, I made myself feel like a complete idiot for about 30 minutes trying t o figure out how to share a Madden highlight. Gave up. I "accidentally" recorded something, and I have a bunch of screencaps I don't remember taking, but I still haven't exactly figured out how to properly implement the share button....despite the fact that it seems like it should be pretty straightforward.

My step-son is looking forward to this one too. I downloaded both of the original games when they were on PS+ and he fell in love with them. I have played the first one but not the second. Probably ought to get on that. Damn backlog....

They should name a patch "Creston's Disappointment".


or "Everybody's Disappointment".

I guess it could be worse. Egosoft could just leave it as is...start working on the next game and not patch this one. Hopefully they make it right. Workshop support is an interesting addition.

I suppose if I had to pick only one ARPG to play it wouldn't be D3. Fortunately I don't have to pick just one.

It's not, but I'm not sure that after living in the US for 12 years that's really a distinction anymore.

My wife has lived in the US for 12 years, still can't speak English.

I keep telling you man, you have to let her have some kind interactive media in that basement. A TV or something. I am not saying you have to actually unlock her chain from the bed or let her use Internet. Gods no! If you want her to learn the language she has to hear people using it though. People she isn't in fear of. When you speak to her she isn't focusing on the words, just the tone of your voice. She needs to hear other people using the same language. Obviously you can't let her interact with other people so a TV is a good substitute. If not a TV at least the radio. Also, make sure her daily rations have plenty of protein. Helps the brain.


(in case anybody is incredibly dense, that is a joke)

According to Ken Levine (source: FB page), the following companies are coming to the recruitment day organized for February 26th.

Demiurge
High Voltage Software
GSN Games
Crytek USA and Crytek (global)
BioWare/EA
Retro Studios
Certain Affinity
Insomniac Games
Sledgehammer (Activision)
Treyarch (activision)
Vicarous Visions
Neversoft Entertainment
Turtle Rock
Fireforge Games
Gearbox
Xamarin Inc
Red 5 Studios
Windward Mark Interactive
Avalanche Studios
Hasbro
Sucker Punch Productions
Turbine
Bethesda Softworks / id Software / zeniMax

This is so the employees being let go can find a new job. It's a cool thing to have the recruitment day in the first place. Many companies wouldn't bother and no company is obligated to do anything of the sort. It's a very cool thing to get a guest list like that together for it.

I got my link about 45 minutes after I signed up. The notice about the newsletter mailing list was on the very first page. I remember because I thought twice about signing up...but ultimately decided the music was worth the extra two seconds it would take me to put their newsletter in the "send to spam" list if it bothers me.

Gonna have to side with Beamer on this one.

Smedley has ZERO reason to "kiss up" to Schilling. The concept makes no sense. Given his position at Sony, I am going to lean toward what appears to be a fairly logical train of thought based on a perspective from at least somewhat near the situation. Unlike most of us.

The reality is that Smedley didn't say anything we don't already know. RI shouldn't have made the deal in the first place, Schilling got in over his head monetarily, than the political mess that had already been brewing buried whatever hope was left.

I would note also that this is pretty much a dead issue and piling on a guy that is fighting cancer seems more than just a bit cold.

OH. NO. YOU. DIDN'T.

1. Sony sells off VAIO PC business amid prolonged industry slump Feb 6, 2014, 20:04 Jivaro
 
Too bad. I have bought 3 Sony Vaio laptops and they have all done well for my family. Only one of them had any hardware issues, a loud hard drive, and Sony's customer service took care of it in less than a week. Going to have to find a new brand I guess.

I pay the 39.99 a year student rate currently. When that expires and I have to pay the normal rate I am fairly certain I will pay it with no issues. I too could go as high as 120.00 a year and not blink. Amazon covers so many bases with the service and my membership covers me, my wife, and our three kids. They would have to start asking for 15-20 dollars a month before I would even bat an eye.

I don't buy near enough physical goods to make this offer from Newegg worth it. In fact, comparing it to Prime seems wrong to me. Probably because I use Prime's digital media library (books, music, movies, etc) much more often than I use the free 2day shipping. I would probably be more excited about this if I shopped at newegg more than once a year..
