I remember ActionQuake 2 (AQ2) had to change logos like Coca Cola. I forgot what they changed it to.
That's in no way related. What you're talking about is the same reason why almost every company in the entertainment industry is a fake/parody company. It costs money to use trademarked images and names.
You can't hold a trademark on a public place.

My dream is that they continue RtCW story where it ends with Himmler. In other words, the new game shall have the same concept, emotions and spirit as in RtCW, but with an updated graphics ofc.

Then they have made the perfect game
Well considering how the 2009 game bombed so badly that it was selling for $30 months after release I'm sure they'll want to forget about it.

I like the Enemy Territory games. But everything they've done since then has been garbage.

Thanks guys, I went ahead and used a fake US mailing address and all is going well!

This is a good resource to have for situations like this: http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/articles/291534

Also, another great resource to get around the insane markup we pay compared to Americans: http://www.myus.com/

It's going to be a game called Sid Down. It's about an internet troll who gets an email promising great fortune if he follows a set of very specific instructions. Instead of fortune, he falls down a well and hurts his back. At this point he vows revenge on the troll who trolled the troll.

Does anyone else have Dota2 showing up as already owned... yet you can't remember purchasing it?

Then when you try to play it it says you are in spectator mode only?

How is it? Worth $15 at this point? Any opinions would be highly appreciated, thanks.
I think everybody has that. It seems like a marketing ploy to get you to buy the early access package.

The Top Sellers shown on the front page of the store is not the same thing as this Top 10 by revenue for the week. I don't know if they've ever said what it means exactly, but it updates much more often. I'm guessing something like "most units sold in the past hour," or six hours or whatever. Something goes on sale and it shoots right up to the top of that thing right away.

You know that all four of those titles were at 50% off at some point during the sale, right?

I'll give you Borderlands 2, but LOL, no, Black Ops 2 was not on sale. Modern Warfare 3 (last year's) was barely 50% off, and it's regular price is STILL $60. Activision is incredibly tight-assed about Steam sales, despite countless other developers/publishers knowing full well that discounts on the most popular digital storefront can mean more revenue. They may not have come out and commented on it like EA, but they obviously feel very strongly that "devaluing their IP" is something they don't want to do.

And Torchlight 2 being $10 instead of $20 only reinforces the point I was making. It brought in more revenue at $10 a copy than Black Ops 2 did at $60 a copy.

My mistake. I often mistake which CoD is the current one.

You're right, those games are priced differently, especially the #1 seller for the week which was 50% off during the sale. That just shows more clearly that discounts can lead to more profit by way of volume, as it tops full-priced games like Borderlands 2 and Black Ops 2. Or that really good, budget-priced indie titles (Torchlight 2) can hold their own when it comes to raking in the green.

More importantly, if this DLC is out today, why can I not find a quest to start it or a zone to teleport to in the quick travel list to begin it like the old DLC's in BL1. Is this due to Steams retarded updating schedual?

DLC is a 1.3gb download chico. We have to wait for Steam's release schedule.

I'm always curious about what the soundtrack will be for each game. They definitely always pick some rare gems.
Yes, artists like The Smashing Pumpkins and Queen are so underrated and unheard of...

Can we get some grammar nazis in here please?

I'm sorry to ask but how the hell is Uplay pronounced? I know how they want us to pronounce it "You Play", but every fibre of my being tells my they've spelt it "UpLay".

Then again it's ubisoft so I guess I should accept their twats French.
The logo has it with the u separate from the rest.

Anyone ever played any F2P game that was actually good? That isn't World of Tanks?
