No, I think he was referring to the standard 30-day game time that comes with MMO's when you buy them thus making it cheaper than paying $15 for a month to play at the premium tier.

I use google reader daily and now with everything the same font it is just fugly and hard to read. Plus stupid G+ bullshit in it now. Grrrr. Guess I'll be looking for another RSS web aggregator. Any suggestions? I can't remember the one I used before reader. And I want to stay away from a binary and stick with a web app.

Yea i bought the 79 dollar one, then realized I should have just gotten the fire - oh well. It is my first ereader device, and I really like it.....

I already have an e-ink kindle that I use every day to read on. The fire I ordered because of price and I'd like to get into Android programming (seeing as the fire will be rooted within a week of release I assume), and also just because I hate anything apple and refuse to buy an ipad, ever.

I ordered a kindle fire the day it was announced. Hoping it's a good browser and pdf reader, otherwise I'll be disappointed.

It might help if they released a demo once it is patched and in working order. I might consider buying it at that point.

I would have liked to have tried the original Distant Worlds but there was no demo. Maybe this time there will be one but who knows seeing as a lot of Matrix games don't have demos.

Four fucking updates and they still haven't fixed the rampant hl2.exe crashing.

Glad to read I'm not the only one suffering with this. I've actually gotten MORE crashes with the newer patches. It felt like I was having to restart TF2 after every round last night.

I suppose rolling things back to how smoothly things worked last week would be too much to ask. What are the odds we get custom TF2 title screens encouraging people to fool around with the workshop and the Mann-conomy after the actual game crashes - Stiffen your lip Solider, just because your game crashed doesn't mean you can't spend money in the Mann-co Store! Get Shopping maggot!

Glad to hear it's not just me and/or the maps I was playing causing the crashes. I was beginning to wonder if the boofort map I've been playing nightly was the cause.

Christoph Hartmenn, President of 2K Games, stated that “strategy games are just not contemporary”.

Or maybe it's just easier to not think outside the box and make another FPS that the mindless masses will buy?

I'll never buy an apple product if I can help it but I do thank Mr. Jobs for legitimizing music downloads among many other tech innovations. (Although I still never bought music online until amazon sold songs in .mp3 format)

Damn you GOG. I'll have to pick up that D&D pack even though I probably won't play the games this year. Alpha Protocol...hmmm I'll keep my $2 and have one less GFWL game to worry about. Thanks but no thanks.

I'll buy Diablo 3 when the pirates come out with their own offline server. Otherwise I'll spare myself the headache since my internet connection is crap. I have free internet living on a Navy base but it is also bogged down nightly by overloaded bandwidth so I have tons of packet loss depending on how heavy it's used.

Why didn't I play longer? That's a good question. You see, the game requires an always-on Internet connection, and the servers seemed to set themselves on fire a few hours after I downloaded the beta, and this dumped me from the game. You not only need to be online to play, you need to connected to Blizzard at all times. So if your connection goes down, or if their servers crash, you can't play. Not even single player. At least this means I can sleep tonight! I know this is a beta and these things are bound to happen, but it's still an ill omen.

sigh...
