My Google+ wall is pretty bare at the moment too, but I think that's mostly because it was released as invite only and most of the current crop of users are the nerdy types with not a lot to say out loud.

It's made worse with the fact that most people won't bother double posting shit to both sites, they're just going to use their primary. In most cases fb and twitter will hold their top spots until there is a greater influx of loud mouthed kids onto G+.

Bad parenting makes kids obese, aggressive, violent; sadly not as easily milkable for votes or easy to legislate against.

News Comments > Aussie MA15+/R18+ Ratings Twist
5. Re: glad I don't live in SA Jul 18, 2011, 20:53 Grokk
 
I went to the effort of filling out the online form in regards to the current call for comments on the rating system.
It now doesn't make sense that the question they had asked were related specifically to overhauling the entire ratings system for all media and now this clown decides to segregate video games again.

I understand politics and all that, but when will they learn that their job is to help/influence/make this country a better place for the citizens?

Just make a fucking decision, agree on it and get it over with. This whole thing is a pathetically small drop in the ocean compared to the other issues this country has and all these guys can do is piss and moan over non issues while the rest of the country waits for a decision.
Good to see my tax dollars being wasted so efficiently.

News Comments > More on BF3 and Steam
158. Re: More on BF3 and Steam Jul 18, 2011, 20:31 Grokk
 
I didn't read most of the thread, I just wanted to post in an epic thread on Blues and make it known that I will be very unimpressed if I have to buy BF3 through a means other than Steam.

This would be a great thread to attach a poll to.

I used this feature last night to group with 3 friends on my server and my son who plays on another server. Worked out really well.

The funny thing is, how long has EA been in the game and how long has Zynga?

I hadn't heard about this until reading it on /. yesterday.
The majority of submissions at the time was mostly lobbying groups, but that should have swung around now given the little exposure to gamers.

Unlike the original submissions, this one covers all aspects of the classification process. It's no longer about just getting and R18 classification, but more of a complete overhaul of the classification system here in Australia.

ME3 has so many possibilities, though at this point I'm going to wait until I see some reviews before purchasing this time around.

I blindly bought ME2 and DA2 on the assumption that bioware knew what they were doing. Shame on me.

I played Fallen Earth when it first came out. Quite enjoyed it to be honest.

I vaguely recall there being mention of a F2P model going into the game like 12 months ago though. I must be thinking of something else.

Curious, I wonder if you can buy Witcher 2 unedited by changing your country of origin? The timing of this change so shortly after that announcement is a bit to close to be coincidental...

I certainly hope so, being that I live in a country where the game has been censored.

Did Blizzard stop doing downloadable standalone updates?

According to www.mmo-champion.com there were patches out in the wild as early as Friday last week, so I guess they are still doing them.

I used the launcher last night a couple hours after the servers went down. Was only about 300ish mb and was completed in about 10 mins.

I like the downloader now with 'Setup', 'Core files' and then 'More to download but you can play the game while it loads in the background' option.
Still however, it's going to be another 6 hours before I get home and can try out the new heroics.

I enjoyed Fable on the original xbox. I think it was the only game I ever finished on the console before it got put away.

I'm half interested in this one however, but definitely not at release with witcher2 coming out at the same time.

I still don't see pings in the bc2 browser... it's the only game like that.

I had to start steam as administrator to get the pings to show up initially, but I'm pretty sure that was resolved.
Either way, if you're not seeing pings then try starting steam itself as administrator and see how it goes.

*This does assume you are running the game via steam, otherwise I guess running the game as admin would suffice.
