I'll never understand these people who feel the need to do this stuff in other countries when people here can't afford help. Clean up your own backyard first, then you help the neighbors.

If they did this at home, richer people whould demand to be helped for free, too. They might even go to court and demand to have this "discrimination" stopped. And politicians would try to stop all the freebies because it would "hold the poor people back from striving for work and money."

13 GB from Crapcom - the company that refuses to patch out Games for Windows Dead from their games. 13 GB from the company that took the money and ran. No thanks. No more crapcom for me.

However, I bought it and at the time forgot my normal GFWL login, was drunk, so I created a new one for this title. Shortly after only playing the first 30mins or so I had a HD crash. To this day I can not for the life of me figure out what i used for the login and none of my standard e-mails work for recovery.

LOL! Great story.

Automatically dismissing a game because it plays best with a gamepad is stupid. That's like automatically dismissing a space sim or flight sim because they play best with a flight stick or a racing game because it plays best with a wheel. Different genres play best with different controllers.

No, it's not stupid. This is just you being arrogant. For some people, it's a choice not to use a gamepad because some people don't like this kind of control and other people simply cannot use them because of a physical disability. Ever thought about that? No? Yeah, whatever. Let the spindoctoring begin. I won't read it, Jerryk. Kthxbye.

If you missed Brothers 2 weeks ago on the Steam sale, go straight to check out. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 200 Imperial credits. And for the Emperor's sake, don't read any reviews. Just buy and play.

Well, you should read this:
"Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons requires a controller to play"

Which means I will never buy it. But to each their own.

Do you know why it requires a controller? I am not being a smart ass, legit question. The game play mechanic is designed around operating two characters simultaneously with two joysticks/pads. It isn't that they were too lazy to code in some PC-centric controls. I can't really think of a practical and comfortable way to play the game without a controller.

I simply quoted the huge bold print from the Steam page of this game.

Developed for last-gen consoles. Ripley's daughter? No. No this isn't the game Alien fans have been waiting for.

In Aliens, some suits tell her that her daughter died at the age of 60 something, if I remember correctly. So this game must take place in the decades between Alien and Aliens. That sounds interesting.
Last gen consoles... Well, if they add good keyboard/mouse controls, I'm interested in a pc version. I LOVE the first Alien movies, the first being a sci fi horror movie and the second being a sci fi action movie. That said, I should watch Aliens today.

Come on 40 million! I hope they have something big planned for 42 million! (squadron 42 and all)

A bigger hangar you can walk in for the end of this year, I guess. The dogfight module for 2015/16, but it could be delayed a bit.

This is just my opinion, but plugging a controller into my pc turns my pc into a console. That's what I personally despise: the controller/gamepad. And now even Steam is luring pc gamers into controller usage. No. Keyboard and mouse or bust. Again: this is just my opinion.

Not really too dumb, just not willing to hire specialists in the field I think. If they aren't willing to hire the proper people for the right jobs (like security, or UI design), then they need to contract the stuff out.

I guess they had a security workgroup but nobody at Valve/Steam moved their workdesk to it because it seemed to be no fun. Just like single player games in general don't seem to be fun anymore for the Valve people.

They might sell some "early access security program", though.

wow....

Yep. Either Steam is too dumb to stop the script kiddies (whose parents should be sued to hell and back), or this is a bigger thing than we all thought.

News Comments > Steam, Origin DDoSed?
63. Re: Steam, Origin DDoSed? Jan 4, 2014, 04:10 El Pit
 
So, Steam told me yesterday that I had 7 new items in my inventory. But I couldn't access my inventory. Today, the DDoS attack is over, so my intentory is back online, and guess what? 3 items were snowballs, that vanished the very moment I accessed my inventory. Which makes me want to beat some sense into one of the script kids like their parents should do.

PopCap is mostly just a shell now. Almost all the creative force behind it left or was laid off soon after EA bought them. I feel sorry for the people left behind working for a zombie brand.

Zombie brand? Does this indicate EA is the plant in this game?
