Greece is not a democracy, it is a meritocracy (Where the merit is being "physically related" to a politician)
Well that's called an oligarchy dude :p

Well it's not Egypt. Both Greece and the Czech Republic are part of the European community. It should settle itself because Greece can't afford bad press with Europe. Plus the accusation that another European country is spying on them is ridiculous. At least they are lucky they're not in a Turkish prison :p

It is little known but Greece is one of the most militarized country in Europe. Should really have invested all that money in the economy...

I don't think any other license has put forward main female characters like the Aliens license has. Providing a playable female character goes beyond pleasing female players with this license.

to be honest I'd rather have a device that opens on a double screen like a big nintendo DS. Taking such a device to the beach would require a solid surface to rest the device on. One screen for commands ( the one for ebooks ) and one for display. A folding design that allows to make it stand upright.

If those numbers are true and they are considering free to play. they should consider bringing prices down 50% first. Video games are overpriced and have been overpriced.

News Comments > Rebellion Sues Stardock and Ironclad Over Rebellion

Is there an antecedent of a company managing to own the rights to a common noun that belongs in a dictionnary? Maybe linguistics should start suing that kind of company to set a jurisprudence. Common sense would have it that a company with name x should be able to sue other company named x if they are indeed competiting in the same kind of field over unfair use of name that could lead to confusion. Can we imagine 3d realms suing a game company for a forgotten realms game or Lord of the realms? Nvidia suing Id for the use of the word rage being the makers of the rage3d video card? ( I am giving away my age here )
I hope the court fine them for wasting the court's precious time that could be used for more important cases.

They would only deserve one thing. to be sued by George Lucas. I mean those guys are asking for it. Thing is Lucasarts hasn't been playing that nasty game and that's to be praised for. They should be busy making good games rather because I dont see a studio being viable with such crap as games like Rogue Warrior. that game only deserved one kind of payment, The content of my bladder.

Yup. Valve wants you to have one single hard disk with one directory. I am now checking if games force Steam down my throat before I buy them. If they do. I don't. When Valve modernize Steam's download settings then we will talk.

Eh, all I know is that MS seems locked in to the 1 bad OS release followed by 1 good OS release cycle.

By that logic:

98 - Good
ME - OH God, is there a word that describes how bad that was?
XP - Good
Vista - WTF? NO!
7 - Good
8- Going to be bad? Most freakin' likely.

(No, I'm not counting the Enterprise centered NT OSs before they merged with consumer level.)

I agree. I completely ignored Vista and jumped on the win7 wagon a bit late but I didn't regret it. The games run faster and smoother.
I even use xp mode to use my old scanner and my own games.

I am prepared to ignore windows 8 wholeheartedly. Vista had directx 10 and 11 to push people to upgrade. Will they be using the same trick again to promote Win8? Maybe in conjunction to the next XBOX to push developers to release games on the two platforms rapidly. That's a strategy that could backfire.

However, as Steam is concerned, I will choose whatever download app that allows me to choose in which directory and in which drive I can download my games over Steam. That improvement should be a priority for them.
I don't wish their demise but I wish developers wouldn't force Steam down my throat. What would happen if steam was killed by competition. The two latest games I bought required steam to install. If Steam discontinued their service, developers would be forced to patch their games or fear everyone including the legit users start cracking them.
