I'm using windows 8 right now. I think its awesome. Its really and updated windows 7 with a new user interface and its faster that greased lighting.

I'm surprised people hate it so much. I like it more and more every day. in fact going back to windows 7 and the older style start menu and controls seems dated and old to me now.

I don't have a single bad thing to say about it.

A lot of people like it, including me. I usually leave it on the desktop and rarely see the new Windows 8 interface, but it is indeed a fast and surprisingly problem free OS, for me. This is just elitist tech geeks trying their best to give it a bad name.

Who cares? It's a fucking phone. Now if it were the cure for cancer, or a suitcase nuke or something, that would be newsworthy. This is up there with celebrity "news".

Because tech news often includes a cure for cancer.

All you have to do is watch the youtube gameplay videos, and it will convince you not to play it. Same boring story-driven, repetative combat crap that you've all played before. Sorry, A different theme and voice acting isn't enough (see kotr) to win over gamers who want a player-driven dynamic experience that next gen mmos are leaning towards. Funcom fails again, so don't be fooled by the early reviews.

Well fortunately for me I didn't watch any Youtube videos of it, so I'm having a great time with it.

How are circles better?

They're usable and intuitive. Circles don't feel tacked on like lists. It took me a long time to figure out how to even use lists. Google+ schema is based around your Circles. By default, you are just posting to the Circle.

I'm not worried about it going away. It's actually getting heavy usage in the professional areas.

What he said. If you use Google+ you know it's not going anywhere. The popularity with photographers alone is enough to justify its existence, but on top of that it makes a fantastic news stream once you've setup your Following circle.

Lots of complaints specifically regarding tool-tips not being changed yet. I continue to be surprised by things I see around the internet.

That's a big deal. First, because it's confusing. Second, because if ArenaNet updates tooltips every time a skill changes, then Blizzard should be able to do the same.

I know what you're doing. I will not be shocked again by this. The lunacy has already set in.

Okay, I'm not reading comments for any more Diablo 3 related stuff.

The PC gaming community has gone full retard.

I'm pretty satisfied with this comment. But please note, this did not happen recently.

Yeah it's pretty obvious when you check it out, but 12 Angry Tests is a great place to start. And yep, straight from the creator, it was made with the Hammer editor rather than the new in-game editor. It's pretty darn polished. I look forward to checking out more once I complete it.

I doubt anyone remembers, but back in the old B.net community, I remember when it was announced that Diablo 2 would have a PvP toggle and that you could only PK players who had it effectively "turned on" and everyone shit a brick in Ogden's Tavern.

Still cracks me up to this day. A lot of the old farts stayed in D1, thankfully. Or moved to Ultima Online.

Diablo 3 looks like shit more and more every day though. It's like an inferior version of Torchlight.

I'd rather get Torchlight 2 or Grim Dawn. Both are basically what the gaming public expected Diablo 3 to be anyway.

I've played Torchlight and I've played the D3 beta. It's a cute comment but if you think Diablo 3 is inferior to Torchlight then you haven't played Diablo 3. But then you know how Torchlight 2 plays without playing it. Boggle.

I feel it's unethical to warn, suspend or ban players who are playing the game within the mechanics you designed instead of the way you intended. If your mechanics allow an action you did not intend, change the mechanics.

Badly said.

What's there isn't bad, not good, but not bad. It does have its moments but what game doesn't? It certainly isn't built for any longevity. You're going to see big drops in pops at the 3 and 6 mo. period.

Aww man you said 'period'. Well, I guess that's that

30 bucks for Black Ops is not a deal.
Bobby Kotick thinks it is... and with 1 million ppl paying the subscription for the CoD Elite, he might be right.

Sad but true. The new Twilight movie is also raking in money.

Sure would be nice to be able to bind them numlock keys for movement. I'd hate to sit in front of my computer playing this game with a 360 controller in my hand.

I know it's a pain in the arse, but you could always rebind them using "Auto hotkey". It's very easy to make the script.

For instance, to set numpad8 to act as w, do the following.

Numpad8::w

Repeat this for all the keys you want to use.
Numpad5::s
Numpad4::a
Numpad6::d

and so on. Just ad the lines to the bottom of the script. It's very easy. Make sure to set the script as active before playing the game.

Good luck.

Thanks. I'll check it out.

Cannot bind numpad keys at all. This game is not playable for me. Developers are slowly driving me off the PC. Could be their goal...

Now I can't wait for this game to finally unlock and find out exactly what video driver problems there will be, read the forums on Friday while at work and come home with some hopeful fixes so I can play with out too many issues or crashes.
