News Comments > EU to Allow Digital Software Resales?

Companies will just start giving away the games and requiring subscriptions to play. Peter Moore may have been right...

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

I always loved using the flare gun to annoy and kill snipers on 2fort. Maybe I'll play some more TF2 this week if the new pyro changes are cool.

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.

Time to throw a party!!!

Celebrating one year of not signing up for Origin! YEAH!

Same here, and I did want to play BF3. Oh well the big companies like EA and Blizzard don't listen so I just won't buy their online only or spyware crippled games. /shrug

They have a somewhat captive audience: those who paid a year in advance WoW sub for a free copy of Diablo 3. Suckers...

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...

I won't gloat but I'm glad I never bought D3. Maybe I'll try it when they open up the starter edition for everyone. Until then, "meh."

I almost bought an X230 but was too taken with the X1 Carbon so now I'm waiting until August. I just hope it's not crazy expensive.

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...

...but said that if it becomes a problem they could briefly allow people to play offline while things get fixed.

That sounds pretty hackable to me so yet again pirates get rewarded and paying customers shafted.

From the article, another classic:

News Comments > Linux Steam Client This Year?
2. Re: Linux Steam Client This Year? Jun 6, 2012, 10:12 Shok
 
I'm due for my annual Ubuntu install. I usually install it on one of my systems and get everything configured then scratch my head and wonder what I'm going to do in Linux. With a STEAM client I might actually use it!

Also, Blue, I saw this Steam Linux news item on hacker news a few days ago and was going to submit to you as news but figured you would have got in your next update anyway. Hacker news is my favorite stop on the internet right after my google reader feeds and Blues
