News Comments > Free Mass Effect 3 DLC Next Week

I got booted a lot because I liked to freeze enemies. Apparently that was annoying because I wasnt killing fast enough. Multiplayer is not my thing.

News Comments > Vivendi Seeking Activision Buyers
13. Re: Vivendi Seeking Activision Buyers Jul 11, 2012, 12:52 avianflu
 
games sales are way down across the board and since the recession started. It is reasonable in that light to put Activision out there and see if there are any buyers willing to throw in a lot of coin.

It is not a firesale.

Larger companies do this all of the time and often there are corporate tax incentives, depending on how exactly the company is sold, to make a sale even more interesting to Vivendi's shareholders.

that "mobilelite" review was a tad too effusive.

I think the opposite occurred. There was plenty of reason to believe the poster on PA was indeed a writer from ME3. Believing everything he said is another story of course.

I think he was referring to internal dissent about the writing team being precluded from working on the ending.

I'm pretty sure that was debunked, actually. The post that made such claims was simply fake.

Kajetan, nintendo has always marketed hard for global sales. Not sure where you are coming from on that one.

The market for $2 games on mobile platforms is already very wobbly. A few winners that make $$, but most dont sell much and quickly disappear off the radar. And spending $$ to market a 2$ game is a thorny problem with no answers.

In 2010-2011, I think many pubs and devs pinned their hopes on mobile gaming on phones, but it is not panning out.

The game industry is definitely struggling in the recession. Dedicated portable game consoles are floundering even in Japan. Home game consoles are turning into movie-streaming boxes.

PC games actually have a chance to regain some traction in all of this retail uneasiness.

PR blather:

Gibeau has to say this to the press because

1. Origin's arrival as EA's exclusive game client

2. dwindling global games sales for several years now.

no SD slot makes it a total no-go for me, but the specs are otherwise great for the price.

Already uninstalled. Watched the new ending on youtube. Done.

It will be interesting to see if that Casey guy gets another chance to head on a major game release after all of the kerfuffle.

for some reason I thought dawnguard was a free download -- oh well.

Happy to wait for the inevitable sale.

Dragon's Dogma is great -- though at level 35-ish it starts to get too easy. Excellent action RPG as long as you dont mind the wonky console framerate issues

2 of my friends -- who really liked D3 at launch -- are significantly annoyed that Blizzard is nerfing items, and worse, nerfing something or another every week. One is talking about not playing D3 anymore.

pricing is key

If it costs $1200 or up, the MS tablet is just another laptop with a keyboard and ports on the side.

I read the entire thread and what Torvald is asking for is open source for nvidia drivers. That's nvidia's RandD, and that asking for a lot.

I see both sides but nvidia is entirely within its rights to protect its stuff.

Mr DeMartini: you never say "never" to the press about anything. You'll eat those words.

Beamer I wish it were that simple; I've been using the "preview" and you'll get dumped into Metro at various points using the "classic desktop" and it is annoying.

And you cant put document shortcuts on metro, which will surely annoy many. App shortcuts yes. Docs no.

All you can really do is learn the new keyboard shortcuts since anything else will slow you down.
