Edit: I just thought of something... I wonder how many european pre-orders will be canceled by people getting pirate copy since they have to wait yet another week. 2k should worldwide unlock at midnight tonight if they were smart.

Thank you.

I said the same thing earlier. Not only is their PC delay to prevent cannibalization of the console version utter BS but they can't even follow their own twisted logic. They will ABSOLUTELY lose sales because of a staggered US vs. International release date.

Then the dumb bastards will sit back in the boardroom as the sell through figures roll in and tsk tsk all the pirating that going on.

"They reviewed a variety of studies that found associations between media violence and aggressive behavior, bullying, desensitization to violence, nightmares, depression, sleep disturbances, and a fear of being harmed that could result in a teen carrying a weapon or acting more aggressively."

Let's translate: "We cherry picked facts to coincide with our political agenda"

Elder Scrolls games have always had long development cycles so 2012 does sound about right. It would also make sense in terms of coming out for the next generation of consoles seeing ES games make huge leaps in graphics quality with each release.

You can play all day Monday if you bought retail, and half the day Monday if you bought steam

well, so much for staying up until midnight to play some of the game.

What the hell was I thinking..... expecting the game to be available at the same time as other versions? It must be that "elitist" PC gamer attitude console gamers talk about.... Dozey

Have faith in the hackers - give 'em time!

The encryption to unlock the game to play before the date is too high end. Once they have the files then all bets are off.

I can't remember but didn't Randy Pitchford do an interview a while ago where he said he hates invasive DRM and they weren't going to be doing that with Borderlands?

Technically, it (Steam activation) is a form of DRM but to call it "invasive" is going a bit far. You know what you're getting ahead of time. Its not like someone installed a rootkit on your system without your knowledge of finding out at the last minute that the game has some draconian activation scheme that fucks your system up.

In any case I wouldn't blame Gearbox, shit like this is always the doing of the publisher.

...or you could've just released the fucking thing along side the console versions instead of this asinine belief that the pirated PC versions would have cut into your all precious console sku.....

EDIT: Just re-reading this press release again and they contradict themselves. They lament the fact that people got copies early but cannot, under any circumstances unlock it early for those people worrying that the game would be hacked and put up on torrent sites for download ruining their potential sales. But then they mention at the end of the press release a 4 day gap between the north American and international versions. Do they think that the rest of the world isn't going grab the hacked North American versions before the international street date?

I'm about as dumb as they come but holy fucking christ these people make NO sense.

all hail cliffy *Destroyer of Unreal and Coop* b.

This is total heresay but I've heard it from several sources that Cliffy was partly responsible for the state U2 ended up in. It was his first true AAA game where he wore the top producer hat. Evidently Cliffy acted like a little Nazi compromising many of Legends ideas for the game including siding with Atari's idea to remove the multiplayer aspect (XMP), something which put UT2k3 (a dedicated multiplayer game) to shame.

LOLOL, so if it was an "Old demo version" that was released then all you had to do was upload the real one as soon as it came to light, right? Oh, wait, its going to take a week?

This is more like "we were inundated with negative comments including death threats hence we decided that the demo might be a tad underdeveloped".

I seem to remember a couple of other game demos that this happened to with the same backpedaling "oh it was the wrong demo" excuse.

Jowood is and always has been a low-class bottom of the barrel publisher.

I like the Russians for making actual PC games, even if some of them are pretty rough around the edges.

Russian/Ukranian (and many Eastern Euro devs in general)devs seem to take more chances and are more ambitious in what they design. Like you said, most times it ends up buggy and sometimes silly but its always interesting. A perfect example is the difference between STALKER and FarCry2. The former is insanely detailed, immersive and varied. FC2 looked great but it felt sterile, repetitious and compartmentalized.

In order of their release is their order of quality from best to worst. The original is classic, one of my top 3. This demo in comparison is just....ugh.

If you've never played any of them then this might be fun for you. I'm just lamenting the drop in quality.
