I'm voting on this by not making a purchase. Not that I want what they are selling anyway.

Even if it was the best most innovative game ever I would still hesitate knowing EA's track record shutting down servers. I can see it now: "Sorry guys we are shutting down SimCity2013 online access but just pay us $60 for SimCity2014 and we'll import your saves for free! (Hey we gotta pay off that SWTOR license debt somehow guys)"

@Dades:

Nope, I never bought Diablo 3. I also have never installed Origin or bought an EA game since it was a required component to play an EA game. If EA started giving away games on Origin (like they did in that snafu a while back) I still wouldn't install it.

I just hope everyone complaining in this thread actually ignores this game when it is released. The less sales the better. I'm doubtful though after Diablo 3 and how everyone complained and bought it anyway.

I hope they adjust the price to $20 so it is in line with other "casual" games because that what this game looks like to me.

Completely wrong place for it, but I know of a couple people on here wanting to sign up for up. Elder Scrolls Online Beta is open for Signup. Submitted it to Blue.

"You acknowledge that EA reserve the right to lock anyone caught abusing a Bug out of all EA products.

I didn't really need another reason to never install Origin but thanks anyway for this one EA! /finger

The evening news said Biden and his posse was meeting with the videogame reps tomorrow. I can't wait to hear all the bullshit in the media tomorrow about the terrible violent video games ruining the children.

2. Re: Harpoon - Ultimate Edition Patch Jan 10, 2013, 19:13 Shok
 
I remember buying the first Harpoon back in '89 on 5-1/4" floppies and they actually mailed me disks with patches for the game. I played it on my Sears IBM Compatible LASER computer I bought when I was a hardware salesman at Sears in high school. I'm sure that chassis weighed more than most 50" LCD TV's today.

I'll wait for an update to Splashtop THD to make my Nexus 10 into a PC tablet before I spend $1000+ for that 1st gen PC tablet.

LOL, I'm surprised they left youtube comments on. Every one is negative complaining about DRM and how much EA sucks or that it will be pirated instead of bought.

Instead, he spent his spare time playing the video game Counter-Strike. "It really helped me get through that," Charles remembers.

They simulated the delay when talking to Earth but I guess they didn't increase ping times for a spaceship traveling to Mars though

Or maybe he was playing against bots?

If it's an offline single player Diablo3 I'm totally buying it! On sale. If it's like $20. Well, maybe for $5, yeah, that sounds about right.

I liked it a lot except for some of the early pacing. I think once they got out of the Shire the pace of the movie started to pick up.

Looks like they trained you to be a good little consumer

It's called: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism

The key is to always pay cash for a car. Never get a loan.

Whatever. I could have paid cash when I bought my car in 2009 but the dealer had a 0% financing promotion. So I made money off interest in my bank instead of paying for it all at once. And it padded my credit rating at the same time...

Next there will be gun controller buybacks at Police stations. *rolls eyes*

And violent books. What about all the written violence? Surely that is desensitizing the kids as well. Let's buy all the violent books back.

I'm sure these people think it is helping and I guess it is; it is helping them to cope with senseless tragedy. While shitting all over the truth...

That is a catchy song.

As far as the end of the world, "meh". I'll be like, "TGIF! Hmmm what's for sale on STEAMZ and GOGZ today???"

I just hope any crazies drink their own kool aid and die and leave innocents alone.

I just bought a bunch of GoG packs this morning too. I already had games in some of the packs but GoG automagically subtracts the price of those games from the packs so it was a no-brainer.

I would have bought my wife a new laptop for Christmas except for two reasons:

Every laptop sale online has Win8 and no touchscreen
No option to configure it for Win7 instead
