The 'instant heating device for smores making' or 'emergency winter heating device' are FEATURES not bugs!

I'd like to see the Ezio collection for the PC if it looked better. Never did finish the last one.

It's a pretty good game and would love to play it again on steam co-op. Yeah it has some time issues but actually thought it added to the game.

Let me ask you guys this.

When you are looking at reviews of a product what do you read first?

Personally I typically do my research on the product to see what it can do so I pretty much know that, but I go to the bad reviews first to see if there is a common issue with the product that would prevent me from buying it.

Also I'd like to know how many fradulent reviews are we talking about beyond the 'auto-comment' robot reviews?


Or one other fix... start reviewing products BEFORE they enter EA/being sold on Steam, which would get rid of a TON OF CRAP that now circulates on there and Steam Sales.

I have a cheap Moto E 2nd Gen I believe. Battery will last all day (just don't game on it) will last 3/4ths the day listening to Pandora or Iheartradio, the screen is gorilla glass and still doesn't have a scratch on it even with everything from keys to box cutter blades/etc in with it. I use to do nicer/bigger/more expensive phones but every time I killed one (typically dropped it trying to put it in my back pocket then stepping on the damn thing trying to 'foot catch' it) it wasn't worth the cost.

Speaking of Bioshock, 2K support hooked me up with a Steam key for Bioshock based off of a picture of the case and CD. No hassle whatsoever. Many kudos to them!
P!ease post that pic on imgur. Drummer

Hehe, that's not gonna work. They make you put a scrap of paper with your email address in it too.

They can still send me the key and I can gift it, I did buy the game twice

If I can find the box (know I still have the 1st one here somewhere) along with the key if someone wants a copy I'll dig it out and send it in to support

The thing that bothers me is that someone can buy a game try it out for .40 hours and then bash the game. I mean come on, you have to at least played the damn game for at least an hour or two to at least have some kind of relevance to rate the game to justify your bashing of it.

Playing a game for 15 mins does not cut it. This is where Steam and many other sites should put a stop to users abusing this system by making it so you can review a game unless you have at least 2 hours invested in the game.

Or maybe a weighted system for the review score based on the amount of time played. Play an 80 hour game 80 hr or more, the review is weighted 100 percent of normal. Play a 20 hour game 1 hour and the review is weighted as 5% of normal.

Although this doesn't address the keys for good reviews problem. Still, I think it would be handy to provide a slightly better accuracy for overall review scores.

That's actually a pretty good idea, except for 1 thing, running the game and let it sit at a menu for X amount of time.
I think Prez did this with Snuggle Truck.

So can anyone explain to me how fake reviews are affecting fraud or vice versa?
I get stolen credit cards being used to buy Steam keys, but where does the review thing come in?

The problem is that unless there is some sorta super-sale there is no reason to purchase games through Steam for full price.
Publishers/Dev's are selling batches of game keys to 3rd party sites, which are then later activated on Steam, and those reviews don't count which is bullshit.
It's not like I was walking around one day and found 300 steam keys for a game just laying around.

From my understanding, if it's a Steam key from where-ever that you can write a review for a game, but if ya didn't have it on Steam you couldn't write a review.

How the fuck is this a good thing? If you own the game, reguardless of where you purchased it your review should count.

Are we going to see Dev's giving out Steam keys only with the promise of a NDA and a glowing Steam review?

Did you see the black R2 unit 'supervising' while R2 did all the work, especially with the droid socket nearby?

Needs a little bit better lighting but damn that was quite a bit of work. Makes me wish we had a Battlefront 3 game.

Damn. I was hoping for a video game based on the adventures of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.

If you could do it where it's Sam and Max meets Red Dead Redeption (a western) then here is my 60 bucks!

I was ready to give this a second look because part of me loved Mafia 2 (especially the ending), but it really could use some sorta co-op or multiplayer or SOMETHING.

Neither of the previous games had co-op or multiplayer so I'm not sure why you'd expect that. They've always been atmospheric, story-driven, single-player shooters.

Was watching some video on this last night, and wow...it looked rough. This weird, washed out filter over everything. Bodies that all seized up in unison before flying through the air from an explosion. People running to phones to call the cops left and right, and cops magically showing up two seconds later.

The presentation does look a bit rough. As for the cops, I think showing up quickly is fine. If they had realistic response times, you'd be long gone before they showed up, defeating the whole point of the mechanic.

Because the previous 2 games had a great story and good missions (minus the racing in the 1st game that they patched, or the gas stamps in the 2nd), but it was a giant city devoid of life. Yeah it may be a new company doing the 3rd game, but when your game is being sold for 30 bucks on major key sites it's not a good sign.

Not being a Nvidia fanboi, but if they are doing a Then and Now of ATI, then they need to use the Then and Now drivers as well.
