If your getting an Android, get the Galaxy Nexus. Nexus phones are the best Android ones. Don't buy a cheap Android phone, they are cheap for a reason.

Which one did you get Cutter?

Also, Madfinger games are on sale for $0.99 at the moment (THD means they are made for devices with a NVidia Tegra chip)

Of course, there is the fact that no Asian country could make a decent game to save their lives(which i dont understand since they supposed to be all Mr. computer)

Companies like NCSoft, Gamevil and Com2uS would like to argue with you from South Korea.

I'm not surprised that they are working on a crack for D3. Warez scenes are more interested in cracking DRM then pirating games in the end, so the harder the DRM the more they want to crack the game.

Its like the Witcher 2. There was a DRM SecuriROM version and the DRM-free version on GoG, but it was noticed in the end the the DRM version was the one that got pirated the most even though it would have been a lot easier to pirate the DRM-free version.

3. Re: Why Do People Care About JRPGs? Jul 1, 2012, 00:24 Kitkoan
 
Mental fluff for me. I play games to enjoy and have fun which JRPGs do. Most tend to be almost like a game on rails with enough sudo-free will to make it enjoyable. I don't need to think we're to go next since the options tend to be clean cut, quests just flow into each other and the level progress tends to be just as fluid (not always but most of the time). And with many of them being just enough over the top to add humor, like a Kill Bill and such.

Any thoughts on the Google Tablet?

With all the newer Android phones being almost 5 inches, it renders a seven inch tablet pretty useless to me. The phones are big enough for gaming (and with me more then my current tablet) but would be too small to use for reading and movies (what my tablet does).

But it's to each their own. My girlfriend want's one though, not interested in the ten inch tablets.

Damn, read the whole article then saw Dev could have saved me the bother

Bear in mind with the specs that consoles are a lot more efficient with CPU, GPU and RAM. The 360 only has 512mb.

Its not that its much more efficient, its that you sit that much further away which lets your eye blur things together and your mind pieces in the gaps. Its like a mosaic, looks horrible up close but great at a distance. You can notice the difference when you sit closer to your screen, like a computer. (I'm not saying its not any more efficient, it is, but a lot of the difference is the distance really helps

Maybe they are hoping that this time maybe they will be able to speed up the console life cycle? Maybe every 3-5 years?

Problem for console makers is smartphones right now. Sure the console is a better option but more and more people have a smartphone that they upgrade on average 18-20 months so can play better and better games sooner, and much more people have them so can make for a wider audience. Combine this with more and more people own a computer that can play games decently that they upgrade every 3-5 years and suddenly trying to drag a consoles life span to 8-10 years looks harder and harder. With all the major OS's having their own place to get apps that install with ease and update just as nicely, its not hard for the average consumer to just opt not to get a console.

And this doesn't consider if things like cloud gaming doesn't take off. If it does it can be quite the game changer. Suddenly your games are on anything, your tablet, computer, maybe the computer/smart tv at the hotel. Just bring your OnLive controller and you can play all your games plug-n-play on anyones system without waiting to install or having to make a new game since the saves are in the cloud too.

Isn't that around the time all the major ISP's become the MPAA's bitches and start sending threating letters to people because they think that sometime, somehow they might just have downloaded something they shouldn't have? And it doesn't matter what the person says, they are guilty and never proven otherwise?

I might be interested, but it depends very heavily on the price. Anything over 20 bucks and they can go fuck themselves.

Creston

Blizzard has never priced their expansions at $20.

Blizzard also said that each one was going to be its own game, not an expansion so no doubt will be full priced. The price tag is for the campaign.

On a different note, my guess is the last 1% needed to finish is how to shoe-horn Diablo 3's always online DRM into this. And why wouldn't they? Did it with Diablo 3 and the customers loved it so much, they voted with their wallets and made Diablo 3 the best selling game of May. This tells Blizzard that people love always online DRM the most

Maybe I have already said this before, but why is it that we get news here for simple iPhone apps and almost none for Android? Is someone a hard-core Apple fan or what?

No one sends in android links for Blue to run?


Doesn't many people send in all these itunes links? I'm seriously asking. Or does Blue have a feed that shows him the newest iphone games? If yes then he could always just peek at http://www.droidgamers.com/index.php/game-news to see the newest Android games

Ha! Now that is freaking funny.
No tax for IE 6? It's got more than double the number of users.

But this is a good idea. I think that we'll start charging our customers for IE 6 & 7 bugs if they report them, instead of just fixing them for free like we usually do.

So punish IE users who still use a perfectly good computer that's just too slow to use a more modern browser?
The "buy a newer computer or pay more" tax?

The very existence of a "karma system" on reddit is censorship, leading to self-censorship and groupthink.

Your posting name added an additional giggle, as I read your comment.

But yeah...like anything, if used correctly (to downrate comments that don't apply, or are spam, or trolling), it works. But they can also be used to downrate comments that may be perfectly valid, but certain people don't agree with.

Notice Blue doesn't have that here.


Doesn't work like that in the end.

May I show you exhibit a). Slashdot?


On the article though, eh. Never really cared about reddit. Everytime I've looked at anything on it, it just feels like a page of spoilt children screaming for attention at what they have and you don't and just general demanding attention for the sake of attention. While I'm guessing not everyone feels this way, its all I've ever gotten the feeling of.

It's for South Korea. I doubt we'll ever see it in the west.

According to a comment there, South Korea already has a popular non-facebook social site.

http://www.daum.net/ if your curious, if I remember right.

*edit* saw the comment, new one to me. I'm pretty sure that daum.net is similar though

This sucks hate having a day off to play D3 only to find out the servers will be down for maintenance, pisses me off.
This trend is the 2nd worst thing that's ever happened to gaming. #1 being when they stopped letting you take a shitty game back for a refund.

Don't worry, with every purchase of D3, including those made after the release date, it has helped push this as the future of gaming. D3 has sold amazing amounts of units, millions, and the hard numbers tell publishers one thing. The customer like this. No, they love this. And its a publishers wet dream come true. Always online DRM that the customer loves so much they have pushed it to be the biggest selling PC game in history, even after it was found out for all the negatives involved.

Welcome to the future of gaming.

That does not really make any sense. Linux was never an alternative to Windows in the first place. If anything then Linux was an alternative to UNIX because it was built as a UNIX-like system but with the additional plus point that it was completely free; I am not really sure what you are talking about because Linux is more than able to stand on its own, thank you very much.
What does any of that have to do with the point I made? My point was about how Linux has failed to become a credible alternative to Windows. It isn't as user friendly, as visually pleasing or as capable as Windows, especially when it comes to gaming. You can compare it to UNIX all you want but that's like comparing a leper to an Ebola victim - both have their own merits (oh look, which body part is going to fall off next?) but most people prefer to be healthy (Windows).

yuastnav wrote on Jun 6, 2012, 13:09:
It even sounds kind of condescending on your part because "Linux is an alternative but it does not live up to my standards etc".
It was meant to be. Microsoft stagnated with XP, faltered with Vista, barely changed much with 7 and now 8 is coming along and is forcing its radically different interface on people, yet still Linux has failed to get anywhere amongst consumers. The UI still looks like it was designed by a competition at a special needs school and even though it's free people don't have any interest in it.

It's great that Linux is now able to browse web pages and watch videos on YouTube. Now it needs to do the hard stuff - have a decent UI, support games and be user friendly.

I am sorry but it looks like you have no clue what you are talking about. You do realize that Linux is actually just a kernel, right? It has no such thing as a UI and what not.
So you want to talk about a UI, okay. Are you talking about a specific software? Are you talking about KDE, Gnome, e16/17, Fluxbox?
Are you talking about the specific interface that you have with your operating system? Be more specific, please, your simplistic views will not get you very far here.

And what do you mean "it has failed to get anywhere amongst consumers"? Among which consumers? Obviously most of the people that are consumers of Linux like it and use it and the same thing applies to Windows, Mac and any other operating system.


Although it's actually pointless talking to you because if you use such analogies as "Windows is healthy" and "Linux is a disease" then it's clearly that you have made up your mind and just trolling around.

Hehe, obvious troll is obvious? I noticed that too. Just a rehash of the same BS that shows they've never touched a Linux box before but would love to down talk it. Next thing is he will say he has and then talk about things that don't really happen ("I did use *most likely the newest version of Ubuntu here*. It was horrible how the status bar on the bottom kept jumping up with random warning boxes that would cover the screen and I couldn't get them to go away..."
