my only concern with B2 is that they will throw a lot of little DLC stuff that should have been in the game anyway. So I am holding off until after the release date.

I am playing SSX now (from the bargain racks) and it is absurd how EA monetized almost everything in that game.

Great games but there were difficulty spikes that werent fun.

Ultimately HOMM 3 is still the better game.

there's a ton of long play gameplay videos on youtube for bulletstorm. They give a great idea how fun the game can be just creating combos out of the mobs.

It is a one-note game, but it does that one note very very well.

I am hopeful too but at the same time the full-time PR hype-meter keeps me wary.

I agree that it was under-rated. But the pricing was way off. Should have been retail 29.99 and then it would have sold tons.

Apple is to blame. Funny thing is every now and then there is an article that tried to blame Amazon for the sudden price hikes, which is hilarious for anyone who knows the whole story.

marketing bulletstorm for $59 (console) was a big pricing mistake.

Epic was the only group that though it was worth the price of a full retail game.

Many have said that it is gate's wife who is the driving force behind the charity work.

Gates has always come off in interviews (and for decades) as semi-asperger's. He's clearly mellowed out after retiring. Good for him. I am not sure I would want to one of his kids though.

Jobs is a classic narcissist. So obvious too.

Torvald is like France in the EU -- I let everyone to guess on that one

The dev that made Sacred 2 went bankrupt soon after the release of that game.

So I suspect different dev, same publisher.

very agree. Throwing some files to the cloud strictly as a tertiary and that's all I would use it for.

sorry -- meant for "worst voice acting"

there was a forgettable jrpg for the 360 that had a guy clearly going "bzzzz bzzzz" into a microphone rather than sampling an actual bee sound. Best part of the crappy game actually.

Agent, great link thanks. Penny Arcade nailed it in their reply.

I suspect getting a job there in recent years is sort of getting the proverbial booby prize.

If you want to make games, you dont want to make games at LucasArts.

Genuinely major crash and burn for Zynga.

Perhaps a prophetic sign for the "social gaming" bubble.

bottom line --

when steam has a major-level user account security breach (and they will because it is happening every other week with major companies these days) this proactively protects their corporate butts.

the 'cloud' comment in the article is clueless. If only the cloud was the IT answer to everything for everyone.
