Agreed -- Apple truly doesnt care about corporate/enterprise support or the IT support sector.

Their profit is in consumer sales and they know it.

I cannot believe PBytes did the "stun-lock" thing again in combat after the giant debacle about that in Gothic 3.

Both reviews complain about it, so it sounds like something isnt right.

Skyrim was a action game more than anything, but it was blast. Worth every penny. The main story line was utterly forgettable.

Well, these titles also require "origin" so they are pass for me.

I installed the win 8 consumer preview last week. Metro might be great for tablets but for a typical 24 inch display with keyboard and mouse it is downright terrible. And you cannot completely disable Metro.

Get ready, because consumers will hate it in droves.

The rapid and deep discounting of even major new game releases is telling the real story. Publishers are forced to cut retail prices to generate unit sales.

Games are still feeling the recession. Not just Nintendo.

the bottomline is that the draconian threat of "perma account banning" makes game consumers less likely to ever post in the related forum. Not worth the risk to one's paid-for game library.

oh that might well explain it -- different publishers and the old publisher just dumping the game.

the idea (in my head at least) for blocking is that one has a chance to stun the opponent with the shield block so that the attacker skips an attack round. So I am making a choice that stun is better for the party in that round of attacks -- versus an outright melee attack by my tank character.

As others point out here, shields simply increase the chance of "evade" if attacked. That's works OK, but it seems like a missed opportunity in the combat engine.

it is curious they would shut the servers down so quickly. I suppose it doesnt help that it can be found used for 5-ish bucks though. There was a very high return rate on the game apparently.

gamers should run away, run away

I bought his 2000 game wizards and warriors. It was obviously unfinished. The levels at the end were just walls.

there *really* should be blocking and parrying options.

The "right hand" icon is right there for each character and you can hold shields for defensive value, so it is ready to go as an option.

fable 3 was so very much like Fable 2 it stands out as a *least* innovative game. Molyneux is lots of talk.

Dimitri nails it. C'mon guys dont fall for PR-speak.

I think these statements of piracy are aimed at publisher shareholders and boardrooms of spiky haired MBAs and PR people. A believable excuse for devs to explain away poor sales on the stepchild platform.

Just because Capps says the PC game was pirated a lot doesnt mean that it actually was. He's just bs'ing folks.

RE5 was a guilty pleasure game for me. Far from perfect but the shooting was fun in the later areas.

Apple will stumble eventually. All giant tech companies do

Apple in particular is ripe for it with the recent change of CEO.

Total PR blather from EA: They priced the game completely wrong at release on all platforms.

Bulletstorm was a fun action game but it released for $59 bucks console when it was a 29.99 game. PC release should have been 29.99 too.
