He also said what's hidden inside the cube will be "so valuable, and so life-changingly important."

I'm guessing it's a golden condom...you heard it here first.

News Comments > Wargame - European Escalation Free DLC
3. Re: Wargame - European Escalation Free DLC Jul 5, 2012, 14:05 Shok
 
I played through a few single player missions in the campaign but never multiplayer. I got a bit frustrated after the 3rd or 4th mission though and never got back to it. I'm hopeful the DLC and patch helps the difficulty. I emailed Blue patch notes the other day but he didn't post (probably since it was from an unconfirmed message board post):

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2783425

GAMEPLAY :

==> Adding a new map : « Mecklenburg ».
==> Adding a new game mode : « Conquest ». Seven maps will be available for this mode, including « Mecklenburg », which can be played both against humans or AI.
==> Adapting two more actual maps for the « Siege » mode : « Hold until relieved » & « None shall pass ».
==> New game lobby interface (multi & skirmish).
==> Better visibility of the number of people in the ranked games.
==> Major tuning patch (see below).


BUG FIXING :

==> Fixing a cause causing a crash when a game host leave the lobby.

And if someone isn't playing SimCity Social, it means they aren't a potential customer for Diamonds, the in-game uber-currency that can turn your real money into anything from building permits to time-saving "accelerations" to the "Simoleans" needed to build most everything in the city. That's right, if you want more money in SimCity Social, you don't have to worry about calibrating your tax rate or even waiting for your existing buildings to produce more. You just have to spend real money to make fake money.

P2W SimCity...you're doing something wrong EA; probably listening to Peter Moore too much.

EDIT: I thought this was the next SimCity for PC but it's a social facebook pos thingy game. oh well /shrug

Seriously? I saw a comment about that in another thread from earlier and just thought it was someone being a smartass. Too bad there's not an offline mode or they could just lock new purchases to offline mode for 72 hours...that makes too much sense though.

My next tech purchase will be a Thinkpad X1 Carbon ultrabook...if I can wait until August.

The Surface looks OK but being the first generation it will have it's growing pains I'm sure.

So I just received my first of what may be many 'tech support' phone calls where I am told that my Windows-based PC is infected with a virus.

Told her I only use Ubuntu even though I never used it a day in my life and she hung up.

LOL, wasn't there a story a few months back about some guy screwing with some dude on the phone doing that?

I pre-ordered also; got it on GMG a few weeks back for $24 when they had a site-wide discount. I'm sure I'll play it plenty of hours to justify the purchase. One more turn...

News Comments > DayZ Interview
25. Re: DayZ Interview Jun 10, 2012, 11:13 Shok
 
I've kind of lost interest in DayZ but not because of the pvp. I don't have long play sessions so I have never teamed up with anyone else. It doesn't help that I don't have any friends that play it either. I'm paranoid of losing all the stuff I have scavenged (map, matches, hatchet, compass, knife) to some idiot so that's the main reason I don't seek out help.

I guess I could try to go to the military towns and airfields and look for gear but I did that on my last life. The M16 AIM I found I finally fired at a zombie and every zombie for half a mile came running and killed me.

It's also hard for me to not cheat in DayZ; if I know a bunch of zombies are alerted and coming to attack me I usually disconnect and log in again...
