Clearly we need to exterminate all spiders BEFORE they figure out they can eat all of us.

I say we take off and nuke the planet from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

If I had a ballot, I'd put Donkey Kong, FF7, Solitaire and Myst in there.

Donkey Kong was probably one of the most iconic arcade cabinets of all time.

FF7 was groundbreaking at the time it came out, with the way it used polygons and 3d scenery, and it ushered in a new age of games.

Solitaire has been played by roughly 7 billion people.

And Myst, for whatever reason, was an iconic game that shifted umpteen million PCs.

The rest were good games (in many cases better than the four previously listed), but really didn't have that much of an influence or were just iterations on stuff that came before.

I could be persuaded for a case for Wii sports.

Wander across one of Andromeda's worlds before terraforming its hazards and SAM will warn you repeatedly for entering and then exiting an area of slight cold, heat, or radioactivity. This will happen every time you enter one of these areas, and then every time you leave.

Ugh, don't fucking remind me. It's been a blessing to be on a planet with no environmental hazards. How on God's green earth did NOBODY fucking mention this in testing, Bioware? Or did Mac just sit there with his dick in his ears again, pretending he knew best?

Gamestop being a giant pile of shit with terrible prices probably also had something to do with it.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing. "Gamestop's shitty customer service killed 150 Gamestop stores."

Let's all shed a tear for poor, poor Gamestop. While you're doing that, would you like to pre-order a Scorpio, or trade in your copy of Zelda for $6 in "get pissed in your mouth and like it" credits?

Oh goddamn, AZ, I did not need to know that!

Looks cool, would depend heavily on price whether I'll get it. And since Blizzard has been about MO MONEY in everything lately, I'm fairly worried it's going to be expensive.

As far as i'm aware Amazon doesn't have a presence here in Utah, and we're paying tax on every transaction.. How does that work?

You can blame your local government for that:

"Effective January 1, 2017, the Internet sales behemoth will begin collecting Utahís state sales tax. Itís part of an agreement between Amazon and the Utah State Tax Commission. Amazon will collect both Utahís 4.7 percent sales tax rate and local option sales taxes, the commission has said. "

FOUR POINT SEVEN?! And you're complaining?! It's more than double that here. >:/

Last I checked, sales tax was 21% in the Netherlands, so it could always be significantly worse.

In OK, we've had to pay tax on Amazon sales for years, but always with work from my end. Fuck that noise. If you want me to pay tax on shit, add it into the price and let the seller deal with sending that to the government. You know, the way it works EVERYWHERE.

Cool article. Amazing that he turned down royalties on the games, thinking they wouldn't sell anything. That's probably cost him a sweet few million bucks...

Look on the bright side; no matter how the actual game turns out, this whole experience will end up as a PhD level topic for some psychologist's case study. "Why did so many people continue to give money for no discernable return, for so long?"

id be willing to bet there will be at least one book written on this..

"The Star Citizen Welfare Program: How tens of thousands of people around the world kept donating money to keep ~ 300 people employed."

Thanks for all your replies guys
ME3 isn't on Steam either, presumably for the same reason.

Yup. The only reason ME2 is on Steam is because it was sold on Steam originally and EA didn't want to deal with removing it while 90% of its player base owns that game on Steam.

Everything since then has been Origin only.

Please ignore ME1 and ME2 as examples of what happens when you put forth the effort as we were under different management then. Thank you.

EA owned them for ME2.

They just couldn't be arsed. Oh, but animations cost money!

This whole "they ran out of time" thing is bullshit anyway, as

A) They had five fucking years.
B) Ryder is often one of the least animated characters. Since Ryder is the one I'm staring at the whole time, maybe at least do THAT one?

So yeah, no. Nice try making a former employee attempt to take the heat off, Bioware, but it doesn't fly.

Obligatory: Game is still lots of fun anyway.
Obligatory: Witcher 3 did it with an algorithm and it looks fucking amazing.

Somewhere at Bioware, someone is reading that pcgamer article, and this section in particular

CD Projekt wanted decisions in The Witcher 3 to feel meaningful, and for them to feel meaningful players needed to form emotional attachments with the characters. They wanted to be able to sell drama by showing it, not by telling you up front a scene was supposed to be emotional. Writing 101, essentially.

and is going "WUH???" Drool

Game still isn't available here on Steam (central Europe). I even searched for it. Nothing. It's not even mentioned.

Not that I cared much because there is nothing I despise more in a game than paid micro-transactions, and MEA has them all...

It won't ever come to Steam. It also has exactly one micro transaction that's completely optional.
