Glad to get this. I don't like EA, but I have Origin installed for SW:TOR. Still, it's a fun game, and it's nice to get it for free.

I wish they had told us students HOW to get this freebie. I'm in school for computer engineering....I'd love to check this engine out!

I played this in the beta, and never picked it up when it went live.

This game is, well, boring. It's a single player game, with all the annoyances of MMOs (oh, you need to pick up this item to fulfill a quest? Somebody else just picked it up, so you'll have to wait for a bit until it respawns)

I'm not even sure I would play this game if it were F2P.

Honestly, this push by Comcast seems to me like "Well, we want a national wireless network, but we don't want to build and pay the infrastructure...why don't we get our customers to provide it for free?"

I'd be okay with this if Comcast were giving customers who participate in the program some kind of discount (perhaps not charging them the rent charge for the modem/router they provide), but they're not.

The game's a lot of fun...when you can actually get into a match. Spent an hour tonight waiting to get matched up, before I gave up.

It's not deep, but it's a fun way to spend a few minutes.

Been waiting for a good MW game for a long time, and I'm still waiting. This game doesn't interest me at all. Making giant bots move like people doesn't make them seem like giant bots (or Mechs). I dunno... this game just looks lame to me.

Although I agree with you that this game doesn't look too hot...Shogo was pretty awesome. I wish they'd make a sequel to that game.

The Mac Pro is just a ridiculously overpriced PC. Can't imagine trying to transport something round ever, just a dumb design with zero advantage. A 12 core processor, well unless you are running apps that actually will use such and there are not many of them outside the scientific community. Again ridiculous. A friend has a system with a top end I7, 3 graphic cards, and a big solid state disc, less than 5k and it will blow the doors off the Mac Pro. Not much of an Apple fan when it comes to PC's since they are extremely overpriced and flat out badly designed.

In my experience, you're right. This year, my MacBook Pro died; I paid a little over $3k for it in 2011. I went to replace it, and ended up buying a Toshiba Satellite P75-A, and, for about $800, I got a better, faster computer. So much so that I don't think I'm ever going to buy an Apple product again.

This mod is freaking AWESOME! Loved playing the beta weekends, and the final is just freaking sweet. Played on a server with 500+ people on it tonight, and it was, well, freaking AWESOME.

My health care is perfectly fine too. It's of our nationalized health system too. I work, but our system covers everyone.

I don't think our country is going bankrupt over it either, in fact, good all round health care for all helps a countries GDP if you want to look at it in such crude ways.

I see you anit sure cos you have no idea what will happen, but I don't see giving everyone medical help is a bad thing.

Healthcare premiums have tripled in the last year. Thank you Obamacare. They've gone up every year since 2003, since some facets of Obamacare are already in effect, it's only going to get worse on that front.

He eliminated the one option that would have made sense, single payer.

We already do give everyone medical help, you can't turn away a sick person simply due to not having insurance.


Speaking from personal experience, yes they can, and yes they do. If the illness or injury is not potentially life threatening, they will not treat you without either cash up front or insurance. I had a hernia a few years ago, and tried to get the necessary surgery to fix it, and was told I could either come up with $6000 up front, or just deal without treatment. Eight years later, I have a huge lump of scar tissue under my skin where the hernia was, and deal with constant stomach problems.

If I lived in a country with universal healthcare, I could have had the problem fixed, right away, and wouldn't have to deal with this stuff now.

Looks like kind of a spiritual successor to Shogo, only with less of an anime theme. Shogo's one of my favorite games of all time, so that's a good thing, at least it is to me.

Can't say specifically why due to NDA, but I'm not playing this game at the moment (I uninstalled), and I won't be playing when it hits public release. It may not be worth your time.

The game's fun...but I've got an "array out of bounds" error every time I've played it. Fixing it requires uninstalling and reinstalling.

I'll try again when the game's a bit more bug free.

"I think the problem is right now there are retail outlets that are really taking everybody for a ride. You can't make a living at the expense of everybody else."

So...is Ru Weerasuriya really saying that used car lots, used book shops, and used video shops are "making a living at the expense of everybody else"?

All the guy did was gather some publicly available information and give it to a website. What this guy got, no matter what an asshole he happens to be, is a fucking disgrace of justice. AT&T got nothing for making a boatload of information public; they were the ones who should've been punished....a fine, at least.

Microsoft's Xbox One games will be $60.

Was this ever in doubt? Geez if they thought about doing $70 that would have been the only way this thing could get worse.

MS has said that their DRM will allow for lower priced games.

MS is also saying that they will require a publisher for all games, including self-funded indie games. Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is coming to every platform EXCEPT the Xbox One because the game is being produced by Oddworld Inhabitants without a publisher.

I'm not surprised that Oracle is going to reinstate tz updates...the community outcry was pretty insane, plus the nobody wants a Java that requires a service contract for full functionality. I'd say kudos to Oracle...but fuck them.
