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.

yeah well. Activision believes a gamepad is a proper tool to play fps these days... the call of duty wind will turn faster than an expert can say "I told you so"....

I agree that the Arkham franchise has been sitting pretty over the heap of average over hyped crap we have been served for the past few years.

Bah the Real Money Auction House was just invited so that Blizzard can sell "rare" items to you and have suckers pay an unlimited amount of money to finish the game.

your primary audience doesn't have money,

Indeed, with the number of video games market gurus out there it's surprising that it hasn't occurred to them yet.

The failure of Lego universe in the wake of the huge success of a game like Minecraft should leave a lot to think about.

Maybe they're reconsidering the Borderlands 2 steamworks integration?
That would be one way to lose a ton of sales!

I don't buy Borderlands for its Steam integration!

Well actually I try to stay away from Steam as much as possible and only use it when forced by developers. Biggest problem is that my Hard disk is partitioned and I have to put all steam games in the same partition.
I want to be able to install my games wherever I want to.
If Gearbox can show Valve how to do stuff right why Not? Of course ever since Sin and Half-life came out it has rather been the other way around

The release of Quake and Daggerfall coincides with the year I got into computers and bought my first machine. 16 years already! Where did all those years go? Huh Five years in Azeroth :p

It's ESL day at Bluenews, eh?
If you want to go all Grammar Polizei, this is slightly more accurate than the original Domo headline, because it acknowledges that 'data' is plural. Admittedly, through common usage it's generally accepted as a collective noun now anyway, but I'm guessing Blue was trying to be accurate...

Methinks "How much" can't be used in front of a plural noun "How many", as someone pointed out.

am I the only one who has that? Every time I go to a link based on bethblog.com I am always lead to the same page. fr.bethblog.com in my case. I can never read about the articles mentioned on Blue.

I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately the games that have tried a different receipe have been total disasters for their developers (thinking of Conan here) But I think what made it fail was the game's shortcomings rather than its originality.

I don't understand what they're saying about the lighting in the video but for sure the game is using the Unreal Engine. Their monitor clearly shows UnrealED.
