It is their servers, their property, their rules. If you "this is a lawsuit" people would actually read the TOS and EULA before you scroll to the bottom as quickly as possible and click agree, you'd see that you have already agreed to this policy the moment you installed the game or registered for their forums.

Just because you buy a product, agree to the EULA (which clearly states that you are using their property), and then act like a douchebag, doesn't mean you are somehow legally protected.

It is running DX10 when you select it, just not the DX10 with all its glory like they wanted.

85% of all installed blu-ray players are PS3s by the way. It absolutely moves consoles, but that explains why the PS3 has an attach rate of less than 2 games per console. The 360 is sitting pretty and 9.

FYI, it doesn't go cross platform for AT LEAST a year.

Any stupid kid that would potentially play this is already dancing naked on a mailbox in WoW begging for gold. You have nothing to worry about.

Using the messenger pad from Microsoft will be all the keyboard you'll need, and it is a hell of a lot easier to use in your living room that a keyboard/mouse.

EDIT: Also, there is no PS3 version of this game coming out. Ever.

If you don't like Ron Gilbert's stuff then you will more than likely not enjoy this, but not liking Day of the Tentacle or The Secret of Monkey Island should be a crime. The writing and comedic timing in those games are unmatched even today.

Edit: I do agree that the price is too high.

Look, all you need to know about this game is that Ron Gilbert was a major part in the early phases of the project. Ron fucking Gilbert.

If you don't know who that is, you don't need to be here.

I didn't buy Crysis on PC and I surely wouldn't buy it on a console. It wasn't a good game. I played the demo/beta thing and I was bored to tears. Sure, the graphics are awesome, but if the gameplay is lacking, all your engine efforts are wasted. It's like buying a Lamborghini with no transmission; looks pretty but something ain't right inside.

Stop making excuses for your shitty sales and stop blaming piracy. Admit that your game was average with a pretty face and we'll like you better.

Hi, 3D Realms, NO ONE FUCKING CARES ANYMORE! Seriously, even if this game cooked you dinner and cleaned you house for you while you played it, it will NEVER live up to the hype. Never.

This game is going to suck so badly. I predict the most pirated game in gaming history right here.

CoD5, which is being made by Treyarch is set back in WW2, will suck ass like CoD3 and no one will buy it after the near perfection that is CoD4.

Treyarch getting out of the CoD franchise would be the best thing for everyone, including them.

Actually, it is 4 maps and they are worth every freaking penny.

If you play CoD4 online at all, you owe it to yourself to buy these maps.

Same exact story as you Surf. Spent 4 years in the trenches making shit money and working 90 hours a week minimum. The sad thing, I loved every second of it while I was there. I guess I am a glutton for punishment. Working for Westwood was amazing and when EA slammed our doors shut, I was crushed.

Oh well, like you I am working IT now making 4x the money with a normal work week.

I agree, the game is just bland and boring. I was a beta tester for months and I tried retail and it is the exact same game.

Garriott, don't flatter yourself. Your game is crap. Everyone knows it is crap. Stop blaming too many testers (the lamest excuse I have heard yet) on why your game sucks.

I have a Wii and I haven't touched it in 6 months. At $199 you aren't going to get a console that pushes the next gen ahead. I am sorry, but for $250, you get a Wii that looks and plays like the Gamecube did 5 years ago. I personally feel that the $300-400 range is much more realistic. Everyone has a hard on for the Wii, but yet everyone I know that owns one never even turn it on anymore.

The best part, the $400+ consoles are the ones that are making this douche's company money hand over fist.

How is TF2 a lost cause?

It is by far more fun than any other shooter out there right now. It is one of the few games I can actually play for hours and lose track of time.

I hate to break it to you guys, but Crysis absolutely sucks. It is generic, buggy, and lacks any sort of fun what-so-ever.

I guess if generic shooter #12432435123 appeals to you, you should check it out. I have, I hated it, I canceled my preorder, and now I am spending every waking second in TF2 which is the way shooters should be....FUN.

I have been in the beta for a few months, and while it has some cool, novel things going for it, it is not at all fun or engrossing. I made it to around level 20 and I never gave a shit about the story, the war, or my character. I was just doing escort and kill missions x21231324 and getting meh loot.

I think if the game had another year of development, it might actually have some chance of a purchase from me, but considering it comes out in a week, there is not a chance in hell I am buying it. It is maybe 60% of what it could be.

Derek,

I just wanted to thank you for coming into quite possibly the most volatile gaming message boards and speaking frankly.

I PERSONALLY do not choose to buy "expanded" content, but I applaud you for trying a new business model. The NWN community has done AMAZING things with free content and I hope you continue to allow us to make great things for your great games.

So, my question to you. Are you going to continue to support and encourage the mod community in the future as you have in the past?

I didn't even know this game was out yet, anyways this is very unlike EA, to patch a game before at least 5 weeks past launch.

I hope you are joking. It is very NORMAL for developers to have a patch ready to go before the game ships. If you, any anyone else in this thread, knew about the game development process, then you would know the very nature of shipping a product allows for 4-6 weeks of additionl testing time AFTER the gold masters have been sent to manufacturing.

In 4-6 weeks, you can find many errors or improve/tweak things that should have been handled before the gold masters were created. With the hurry up and ship mentality of publishers in the industry these days, this 4-6 week period has become a QA buffer in a sense and had become standard patch preparation period.

Before anyone asks, I have years of gaming industry experience. Unlike many of you (like the OMG I R NEAT original poster), I am not just blowing hot air.

Additionally, the EULA is there for a reason, and you have to aggree to it for a reason. 99.9% of you do not read it and therefore have no clue what you are legally and contractually aggreeing to when you actually click agree. Stating that they can, at any time, record your IP and usage information is pretty much standard fare for virtually every PC game with on online component out there. Read a EULA for once and you will see. You read some half-witted article about OMG SPAREWARE IN EA and you jump on the bandwagon.

Not that I support or advocate EA's business/development practices. I choose to educate myself and voice my opinion where it matters.....with my wallet.
