They put the fps cap sliders in it. Did you want them to come over and adjust it for you? They are setup on install based on sys info I believe anyway...

It never should have gotten to that point in the first place, with a company like Blizzard. And the FPS sliders were there originally in release, but default was max.

But apparently "default settings will cause damage to your videocard via runaway heat generation" is just swell with you.

Not to worry, PC gamers! The PC version of the DLC (when it comes out) will come with a PC-exclusive set of horse armor*!

I hope I can try it!

You know, I think I'm going to resist the urge.

I would rather wait until I couple play the complete game. But that's just me.

Despite Amazon being on the list, it appears that pre-ordering from Amazon will not grant you access into the beta, and you will only get a one-day head start.

piracy is made out to be much larger than it actually is, these people go to their board meetings and tell them this is why they failed, when in reality it is not the issue, Piracy is the "Get out of jail free card".

This. A thousand times, this.

Executive: "The executive committee is not pleased. The PC version sold poorly. I've heard whispers that it was badly ported and buggy, with features which are considered standard to PC gaming stripped out."

Developer: "A poor port? From us?!? Nooooooooo! It was.... um... well... piracy! Yeah! Those darn pirates! That's why our PC sales sucked! Yeah, that's the ticket!"

Executive: "Sounds better then me approving this fiasco in first place. Yup, sounds like pirates are to blame."

I honestly don't know how the game plays, having never bought a copy myself. The Serious Sam-esque FPS type doesn't really do anything for me. /shrug

At least, that's the impression I got when I dropped over at my nephew's house and he and his buddies were playing a game on their Xbox. I noticed that when he took it out of the machine, it appeared to be a CD-ROM with "BSTORM" written on it in black sharpie. But, yeah, those PC pirates will get you every time...

DLC is going to continue to be an issue for triple-A titles because the cost of development increases while the retail price of a game is decreasing (after inflation is taken into account.) Indie games can make their games more affordably with less money lost to the middle-men, so it's not a big deal there.

Nah. I can't accept this explanation. I'm pretty sure triple-A titles like ME3 are making metric buttloads of profit for EA/Bioware. But they're gonna try to nickle-and-dime you on DLC whenever they can. There simply is no excuse for day zero on-the-disc DLC being a extra paid SKU.

I'm willing to bet that indie developers don't even come close to the total profit margin per copies sold that the big publishers do with triple-A high profile titles.

If they would do that, the USA would start a war on nearly everyone, bancrupting itself in the process finally for good and the rest of the world can go on.

If the USA bankrupts itself, it because we're paying for everybody else's military or social services infrastructure. I can assure you that "the rest of the world can go on" is bunk. Just look at Greece for the perfect example.

Are you seriously going to stand by that comment?

Darks, did you actually, you know, bother to read my comment at all? Especially the part where I said "Don't get me wrong. I agree about the rolling early access. I have no problem with that"?

Or the part where I said "it's a good way to prevent a million people in the newbie zones at once and causing the server to catch fire and explode"?

My gripe is with the way it's being handled. I have zero problems with the "staggered start" approach. I just wish they would stop it with this "wait around and hope you get an early access e-mail which you may or may not get today" silliness and just say "Hey, if you put in your pre-order code from (date 1) to (date 2), you can start playing early on (date 3)."

I did get my email early this Moring telling me that I was now able to go and play.

Well, it must be special to be you.

The rolling entrance makes sense to me.

Don't get me wrong. I agree about the rolling early access. I have no problem with that... it's a good way to prevent a million people in the newbie zones at once and causing the server to catch fire and explode.

It's just the way they're handling it. Tell me when I can play. That's all I want to know. But they won't... they're sending out invite e-mails in "waves" that is supposed to be based on the date you entered your pre-order code. The first "wave" went out a little late and then they sent the second "wave" at around 9:30am EST. And they just sent the third "wave".

No, they're not telling you when the "waves" are going out. You just have to wait and hope you're getting access.

They could alleviate a lot of frustration and QQ if they just said "Look at the chart. Match it with the date range you submitted your pre-order code. That's when you'll get early access." Period. Done.

Worst early access ever.

It would make a lot of people much, much happier if they just went out and said "Hey, if you pre-ordered from (date) to (date), you can start your early access on (date/time)." This silly "e-mail wave" idea is frustrating and asinine.

I know it's hard to believe, but some of us do actually have things to do other then hang around our computer and wait for an e-mail that may or may not come.

What a disappointing trailer. The choice of music was... lackluster, at best. I almost fell asleep during it.

As an aside: am I on the only one who finds those "Please enter your age" prompts to watch videos and trailers utterly useless and asinine?
