I would love to take a great war-like steamer on an iPad.

Just gave this a try on the PS3 and it's looking pretty damn, controls are excellent, as to be expected by a bungie game. Looking forward to diving back into this later on in the weekend!

It will take some hands-on time to see if that is truly a viable option, biggest problem being the transition time between the 4 directions and how short the travel time is. That is precisely why a d-pad is ideal for so many fast paced platformers, fighters and classic games

I'd like to see at least some way to have a d-pad on this, as removing it removes any possibility of platformer/classic gaming on this thing.

Maybe have the analog swappable for a d-pad, if done well. The original d-pad looked god awful so hopefully they improve that design too.

No doubt this design comes from testing the controller vs traditional analogs in a variety of games. I'm guessing for racing games especially the analog is wayyy better than the touchpads.

In the past year I have gotten a bunch of free games on Origin. I actually haven't purchased a single one from them yet..

Current free games in my library:

Burnout Paradise, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 1942, Dead Space, Peggle, Plants Vs Zombies, Simcity 4, Dragon Age: Origins, Mirror's Edge, Crysis, The Saboteur and now The Sims 2 Ultimate

I won't play some of them, but they have been pretty legit about the free games on Origin.

But what about the shareholders man?! You told them there would be a battlefield game every year going forward! How can you possibly earn their trust back now with nothing to show for the holiday season 2104? For shame!

Just for fun I did a little calculation. You would need to kill 27.39726 people per day, every day, for 10 years, ages 8 to 18 in this case, to hit 100,000. Granted, that's not a lot of carnage per day, but it is an awful lot of days.

For the weekly-minded, that's 191.78 a week for 520 consecutive weeks.

I'd like to think that even the laziest of "gamers" can kill 192 virtual enemies in a weeks time, so that number sounds legit to me.

Strangely enough, I've found the best way to "stealth" the bank heist missions is to kill all the civilians that are wandering the streets so they cant walk by and see something suspicious and blow your whole operation. Yeah it takes a toll on the cash earned for the person killing the civs, but if you have the person with the most expendable cash on them take care of this, it doesn't matter as much.

Once you've taken them all out and done so without being caught, you just need to sneak in and prevent the alarms from going off (make sure you crowd control the teller booths and check on the mission intel to see where the alarm button is). If you can subdue all the cops and civilians inside, which is not very hard with everyone coordinating on going in at the same time and spamming shout, and cuffing the cops or shooting them with silencers. If you kill everyone on the street you can also make as much noise as you want to at this point because there is no-one left on the streets to hear the glass breaking, etc.. and you have all the time you want to open every safe box (remember to bring a saw if you can to speed this up immensely and break into those ATM's in the lobby!). This technique can also be used on the mission where you burn the cash but can still break in the safe boxes, but best to master it first on the regular bank missions so you don't potentially screw up the last part of that multi-day mission, which especially sucks on pro missions.

Once you master this you can stealth pro-overkill missions here rather easily and rake in mad loot/exp.

Sounds like some neighborhood gaming group that tried to grow bigger than its small town roots.

Besides, since the NES, who really has thought that PC Gaming attracted more people than consoles? Sure, for a while in the mid-90's at the transition of cartridge to CD-ROM there may have been more for a while (likely due to the cultural phenomenon that was DOOM), but consoles have always been an easier entry point than computers because of their specific focus and simplified controls and attachments to large TV's instead of small monitors while promoting multiplayer much better before the internet came around, as well.

Yeah if he was talking about Games For Windows Live the booing would make sense, but in this context it doesn't

Well one could argue that without xbox/live that the GFWL platform would have been at least a hair better than it turned out.. but I guess it couldnt really have been any worse, could it?

Been using PrecisionX for a while now, but just downloaded Afterburner and will probably stick with that given the background behind Precision that I wasn't aware of before, as well as this current code-stealing fuckery.

So, just because someone claims they used the code it becomes factual? you sound like a women who just cried rape but was never raped and the guy now has to prove his innocence.

The fact is, no ones knows for sure if they did or didn't use his code. Until someone digs into the code and does a side by side comparison to prove it. Then I would suggest you not falsely accuse someone until that fact is proven.

Simmer down Ned, I said that was only one of the reasons I was switching to afterburner, and looking through the examples that the owner of rivatuner gave and what is existant in the new build of precision, it would appear that at least some of his claim is valid, as well as the previously stated fact that I learned more about afterburner and the history of both programs in the process and it is undoubtedly a better program (64bit app support, amongst other things stands out). I don't need to wait for a jury to make the switch, I've already made up my mind, thank you.

Up next, an RPG where you can only level up if you buy (individual) level-up packs...


I think they already make plenty of games like that for IOS and Android.

Comcast, at&t and pretty much any monthly-billed "service provider" have departments like this. Usually titled "customer relations" or customer retention" or something of the like. To speed up your call, ask for them immediately, but it is still none-the-less frustrating to get through..

The shittiest thing about treating people in these positions badly is that they are generally working for outsourced CS companies for $9-$10 per hour and are only graded on how many customers they can save per day, no matter what it takes. Many of them could give a shit less about who they are talking to, but they do have special plans and offers not available through regular customer service departments and if you have the patience to negotiate with them can find your monthly bill much cheaper. That these reps who deal with the most irate of a large corporation's customers are some of the worst paid usually is the worst part about this interaction, with standard cs employees usually making an average of 4-5$/hr more starting wage.

Source: I was a technology facilitator (trainer) at at&t for almost 3 years, and I got to travel to these outsourced slave-centers.
