Startup paid Black Friday shoppers to snap up cheap hard drives



So, all the time and labor to remove the drives from the USB housings is worth the savings? And any defective drives are out of their housings so no warranty I would guess...

News Comments > Far Cry 3 Uplay Workaround
9. Re: Far Cry 3 Uplay Workaround Nov 30, 2012, 12:48 Shok
 
I'm pretty sure Uplay is only required if you buy it outside of Steam. I think the video review Blue posted yesterday mentioned that but I can't be positive that's where I remember hearing it. Nevermind, the Steam page says, "Requires a UPlay account". Fuckballs! as Debra Morgan says...

In any event, I agree with giving Ubisoft the finger whenever possible because of their past DRM bullshit. Vote with your wallet though or it will never change.

I see their doing that tiered pre-order thing on Steam like X-com did. X-com had a lot of gameplay videos to go by so CoH2 would be smart to do that also if they want my pre-order...

I just got an email for the "humble THQ bundle".

THQ is trying everything to stay in the black. Next they'll be selling signed official THQ toilet paper.

I bought the THQ mega pack on Steam a few Xmas' ago or I would buy this also...

Re: Far Cry 3 video review.

I think his quote was something like, "A cross between Skyrim and Just Cause 2 in a fireworks factory"

Sounds like a Steam Christmas sale buy for me, for the sandbox gameplay more than anything else.

I just assumed that the article was going to blow smoke up my ass about how gaming on Windows 8 is great and everyone should upgrade. It was nice to read an honest gamer-centric assessment.

@Verno: That's good info if I ever decide to install Win8 on my gaming machine. At least MS had the foresight to leave an option for always on top I suppose.

News Comments > Deus Ex Texture Mod
3. Re: Deus Ex Texture Mod Nov 29, 2012, 10:39 Shok
 
I would download this and install Deus Ex (from original CD) and all but I did the same thing with Thief1/2 and SS2 when that user patch came out a few months ago and besides getting them all patched up and running I never got around to playing them for more than 5 minutes lol.

I'll probably still install it all though...

Please note that due to extreme server load it may take some time to get your game, but we are working around the clock to alleviate the situation.

Pro-tip: Use Steam next time.

The biggest problem is that the Vita has become something of a landfill for bad games

Ouch, glad I didn't bite on that Amazon deal the other day for the Vita for $180.

I would love to know how much money total and monthly the D3 auction house brought/brings in. Was it really worth it Blizzard?

I just wish gamers had voted with their wallets to begin with and not bought Diablo 3 when it came out.

I'm still Origin free and Diablo3 free though lol

(I did relent and buy Panda expansion for $15 on Black Friday grrrr)

I might actually go into a Gamestop and pick up the panda expansion for $20 on Black Friday. Hopefully they'll be all out of it so I don't have to waste any more time in WoW. grrrr.

News Comments > Croteam on Windows 8 Issues

It all boils down to an open platform. I can get used to the Win8 interface but if I support this OS now then that gives MS no reason to keep the platform open in the future.

Of course in a decade or so we'll all be using tablets and just downloading the Win7 emulator app

I wonder if Guy sticks his greasy hands into the food back in the kitchen like he does on his show. I know the chefs are happy for the exposure the show gives their restaurants but I wish one of them would slap him silly when he does that

It's hard to believe this time last year TOR had just launched, or was about to. Pre-order for early access! LOL.

I played a free beta weekend and knew then that this WoW Star Wars mod wasn't for me.
