There are sales on Steam every day of every week of every month of every... yadda yadda yadda, just 'cause "the sale" is over doesn't mean the deals stop.

Yeah, it's gotta be some weird thing where Bethesda would prefer to be able to say they've sold more copies of the base game, because they're effectively choosing to give it away for free in the bundle rather than appropriately discount the DLCs separately... They do the same thing with Dishonored.

I get why they feel they need to honor the results of that poll, but it's interesting that the audience was split virtually down the middle... Might as well have flipped a coin, and to me that's not a compelling reason for doing anything that pertains to future development.

I agree! BTW, after checking the list myself, it is indeed the Legendary Edition at #1, not plain old Skyrim... You threw me off, Blue!

Mmmhmm, keep putting words in my mouth and making assumptions as to what the ones I did say actually mean. Anything to make it easier for you to feel like you're winning an argument when there really was none there to begin with. I'm happy for you! Isn't it peculiar how it's always a battle around here, though? I've partook myself, sure, but nobody can just talk about anything... It's always NO YOU'RE WRONG!

LOL, completely missing the point, but hey, wouldn't be a Blue's political discussion without plenty of that... The thinly veiled ad hominem is just gravy!

I never stated my opinion on whether or not the Redskins should keep their name. My opinion on political correctness being intentionally churned into a nationally divisive, distracting "issue" is that it is 100% bullshit. We as human beings (or especially Americans, who are supposed to be this grand melting pot...) need to grow up. Simple as that.

It's a vocal minority... Just like lobbyists who claim to speak for the whole of any other race. So for your lawsuit-filers, there are at least as many that are offended at the notion of suggesting they should have to change their name, and a much larger group than both of those two combined that are completely indifferent. Do you honestly think this is the biggest issue the tribes are, or should be, concerned with?

It's largely the same kind of malarkey surrounding the N-word... The media hype and phony outrage (mostly from white people) make it into a bigger issue than it actually is. I'll just be glad when the old racist generations finally die off... If just about everyone under the age of 30 is able to discern a difference between a word being casually used in everyday speech (or as the name of a stupid-ass sports team), and ANY word being used in a genuinely prejudicial manner, then said word(s) have officially lost their stigma and it is only those who continue insisting it hasn't, who are the real issue. SORRY, time to find something else to be [fake] upset over! Hopefully something more important...

Ugh, I'm almost ashamed to be an American over shit like this.. ACTUAL Native Americans don't give a fuck, so quit with the white man guilt trips (aka reverse racism). It's bullshit.

Oh yeah, there's definitely an issue with the Bridge. It's the only place where I notice not only a framerate dip, but that it's not uncommon to have full-on hiccups or hangs when there's a lot of action going on. That's on a Core i7-3960X, 16GB RAM, and GTX 580... I don't recall that happening before the expansion hit, so it might have something to do with the new graphics effects they added.

The funny thing is the 'Contraband' rarity...these stolen skins are now being sold on the Marketplace for significantly more than before.

You misunderstand... They REMOVED the infringing design(s), and REPLACED them with alternate, original ones from Valve, which are not otherwise available. So the violators get the boot and nobody lost anything, in fact extra value was created for some people.

I'm playing on normal. I just got to Leoric's mansion and I haven't died yet. I haven't come close to dying. The only time my health was noticeably low it was due to me standing on lava without realizing it. I'm thinking Normal is too easy, as I'm using absolutely no strategy and having absolutely no challenge.

That's why they changed it so you can bump up the difficulty. You get tougher enemies but more rewards on Hard -> Expert -> Master. Then at level 60 you unlock Torment difficulty. This change forgoes the previous ARPG convention of playing through the whole game on one difficulty, then replaying it over and over on subsequent ones. Now it's feasible to hit the level cap before beating it the first time. It's really difficult and/or requires some hefty twinking for an alt, but it's possible.

They had previously made the drops very common from those unique mobs, but I guess they just changed their mind about the whole concept. I don't know how you couldn't foresee people farming the same mobs over and over to get them? Like I had been doing Maghda to get the bits for Cain's level 70 set... Made a cool 4 million and got back half a stash tab from selling all that stuff, though!

I don't know about everyone else, but I re-sold my PS3 copy after I beat it... It was basically a rental.

How are they going to pressure you into buying map pack DLCs if you aren't forced to play with real people who eat that shit up?

What else did you expect, once the official server hosting came online? People should not be profiting from running a multiplayer server for any game...
