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.

My thoughts and prayers Blue, my mom's was Aug 27th.
Sister's birthday Aug 30th (and had to take her to the hospital), 31st was her 14 year wedding anniversary, 9/9 dad's birthday, 9/11 parents anniversary.

Can we start skipping this time of the year and go straight from summer to Halloween?

What will be a bigger slap is when Bethesda announces their next game and won't quite confirm to a Sony/Playstation platform because of this BS.

One of the few games for this console generation that would really push people to a Xbox One.

Got back into Overwatch lately after a short break and multiplayer does feel really good now (It was good before too, but there were very noticeable issues). Havent encountered any shoot around corners or the weird yo-yo interpolation errors I would get while jet boosting with d-va every once in a while before. That shit sucked in comp play during season 1 especially.

Noticed quite a bit of shoot around corners and lag over the last weel. Considering I play Lucio quite a bit, getting hooked by Roadhog and timing Lucio's push has been a bitch with net hickups.
