I actually believe that they do tend to turn them away, but I also believe that everyone should base all of their actions and buying decisions on the assumption that they turn it all over. If that makes any sense.

I am really jealous of you Nin. I wanted to pre-order a PS4...actually I did pre-order one. Had to cancel it. Buying a house+upcoming holidays+daughter in college has effectively frozen my game spending for at least the next 5 months.

I haven't even played The Last of Us or Injustice or Ni No Kuni yet...and Beyond: Two Souls is coming on the 8th.....

Arg.

I find it interesting that people are of the opinion that sites that make their money on the gaming industry and it's consumers should not comment or have an opinion about topics that in very real ways affect the gaming industry and it's consumers. I can't say I agree with that viewpoint. Then again, one of my favorite gaming sites was VE3D and from Billy to Robert to Andrew to Ohm to...well all of them spouted off on whatever they felt like. A few people use to complain about that too and I didn't understand it then either.

I recognize that quite a few of you believe that RPS is simply click-hunting, and that might even be true. It doesn't change my overall stance which is that I need sites like RPS to counterbalance sites like IGN.

I need to simply buy ANNO 2070 from Ubisoft.


Yes. It's an incredibly awesome game. You can build such beautiful, beautiful cities. One warning though, the building options in just the default game are a bit sparse. It's well worth waiting for a sale so you can pick up all the DLC, because it adds TONS of customizing stuff.

But you can build truly gorgeous cities in it, and it's just fun to design them.

The Complete Edition is on sale through the Uplay store right now I believe.

Is anyone actually using Big Picture? Regularly? Semi? At all? I haven't touched it.

Yep. Gaming PC in the living room uses it. Works great and has made gaming in my living room tremendously easier overall.

Yeah, it doesn't really count as an apology when the only thing you are sorry about is that you didn't win. It is pretty obvious that he still thinks he was in the right, the rest of the world is just wrong.

His website is a whole other thing. Pretty sure that will blow up in his face as well...but I think that is probably his intention.

Too bad people will probably keep giving him attention, even if it is negative, because I think now that he has tasted his 15 minutes of fame he will continue to find ways to be an asshole so he can somehow keep tasting it.

Don't even get me started on his laughably transparent Buddhist hypocrisy.

Yeah, I thought he was attempting humor when I first read it...

Good for Sony. It is doomed to have some negative consequences unfortunately, but if gaming communities were better at self-policing there wouldn't be a need in the first place. Unfortunately, just like "real life", communities are terrible at that...particularly if the asshole happens to be the best tank/healer/etc. People let it pass or they even join in.

Slippery slope or not, it is a slope that must be navigated. This is just another example of the digital world evolving and it's participants having to adapt as well. Maybe in a year Sony decides they can't possibly approach this situation in this way. Doesn't matter. I am just glad that they are at least addressing it instead of putting their head in the sand.

The new Humble Bundle is pretty swank...All of the X games for 6 bucks or more. I only had X3 Reunion, so this is pretty cool.

Everything is done in two codes, so it is pretty much all or nothing. Just an FYI. Each game doesn't get a separate Steam code.

Can somebody post a link to the football site? I cleared my history/cache etc during some problem solving stuff last night and apparently I never bookmarked the page. (apparently I don't recall the name of the site either) Thanks

It's been out on android and iOS for a while. Here are a few reviews for that. I imagine much hasn't changed.

http://www.148apps.com/reviews/arma-tactics-review/
http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/Arma+Tactics/review.asp?c=53784

I saw the first review previously and didn't think it was all that relevant since it complains about the controls largely, which I would imagine are quite a bit different on a PC.

The more helpful review is the second one from pocketgamer, which I hadn't seen. I hope they iron out some of those glaring flaws in the beta because "on paper" this sounds like a fun game.

This totally looks like my kind of deal..would be very interested in hearing opinions if anybody from around here is actually in the beta.

FYI, according to a friend of mine, even if you haven't bought Saints Row IV yet you can claim this free DLC. Which means you will have it when you do get around to buying and installing the game. I can't check this for myself really, but I thought I would pass it on.

Nice one, Jivaro. It does work! Hah!

Indeed, thank you! I had uninstalled the game, wasn't going to reinstall just for that, but I clicked the play now button from the DLC page, and it's credited to my account.

Thanks!


Glad to hear it, will pass it along to "my friend".

"Hacks" are all client-side, aren't they? They rarely have anything to do with the server. 99% of all cheats involve either showing you more data that is already being sent to you by the MP server (think wall hacks), or manipulating the data you are sending to the server (think aim-bots).

Largely, yes.

If this game flops it has nothing to do with crowdfunding, pc gaming, or even the space combat genre. It would have everything to do with Chris Roberts and his crew. Same thing if it succeeds.
