News Comments > Valve AU Fine Upheld

To me this is a system working properly.

In the end we're all better off and Valve can still make their billions.


"This root problem was remedied after a proper Steam refund system was put into place, they still must pay the penalty."

Done. Done. Move on.

Yeah, but by slowing down your phone, their salesmen tech support guys can tell you your phone is dying and convince you to upgrade.

Funny enough, none of them EVER mention that a new battery would make that phone feel like new. Each and every one of them goes for the "You can get a 8 for just 800 bucks!"

Fuck Apple.


Cuz those batteries are now glued in place in cases that are glued in place. Changing them is nearly impossible, and surely violates the TOS. So convenient, for Apple (and Samsung).

Yeah that is what I thought, not sure what Simon is going on about, probably an Android phone, but this is specifically a Apple related issue that is being discussed.

If Apple was so noble, they would tell you that, due to the current state of your battery we are now running your system at a reduced rate and list aprox what that is. Right?

For Elite, I think you'd try the $7 teaser first and then if you like it at all, add on the Commander Pack for $15.

Specs? Must be right around the corner for a release.

LOL on the skimpy ass GPU recommendation. DX11, 2 gig ram... wow, that could be a mighty old card by now. Uh huh.

the specs are accurate according to my experience. the game is poorly threaded, so it likes a faster CPU more than more cores. the graphics look amazing but aren't that demanding because there's a lot of nothing in space, and their ground levels are probably in buildings without much going on. the game has a lot of STUFF, textures and geometry, just not all on the screen at once, so there's a lot of disk loading, and it already fills 16gb RAM.


Hmmm.... so all these years when people are saying they are going to need a monster system, all for naught? That spec is something like a GT450 video card. I get the space part of your point, but didn't we see a city world from space you can fly down into and then fly through a never ending city, like never before in a game? That looks intensive. But you're right they are using the magic of Amazon and their Lumberjack, probably the most streamlined engine ever.

Or is SQ42, simply not going to that tech and just be a Station to obtain missions and then do them in space only type thing? If so... ok starting to feel ya.

That doesn't seem much like a game to me as a sad comment upon our society. What's next for this developer? A laugh a minute dems vs reps on the senate floor?

Yeah probably, like your idea though.

Someone will say "This is what it has come down to, people just putting out garbage to poison our minds". They will point to religion as the answer for why a tight structure is needed to keep us in some type of moral line. But still really have no proof that a damn thing we do here has afterlife consequences, but now I have to live in this structure some else has imposed on me and really don't like that.

Just got to remember... it's only pixels and it's for the laughs. Why? Because that is reality it is. Sad or not.

Don't you go breaking 4th walls on me. Super bowl coach, award winning announcer, legendary coder = National Treasure.

Game looks cool though.

Some of you support the DNC that literally screwed Bernie during the last election. Amazing. I can't wait for 2020 either.

I liked Bernie's message, but c'mon.
1. The guy wasn't a Democrat until it was convenient
2. Hillary beat him not including superdelegates.
3. Hillary won primary states overwhelmingly, a more democratic process than the caucus states that Bernie dominated

Personally I think he was the best candidate, but he didn't convince a majority of Dems about that. So let's put to rest the whole "He wuz robbed!" story.

There wuz shenanigans beyond super delegates, not saying for certain it would have changed the outcome, other than him vs Trump, he would have driven it home. Oh well 2018 and 2020.

Do I support the DNC still? Well I don't really even consider them all that much, but compared to bat shit reckless we have right now. Their angels from a 7th Heaven in comparison. And I have no care about RNC either.

FWIW, it takes fewer copies sold to keep a $60 game higher on the list than the $20-30 items right below it (they're ranked by total revenue). I'm sure the gap between PUBG and #2 is HUGE, no matter what it happens to be each week.
So if a game is priced at $500k and sells only ONE copy it will rank higher than a game that sells 499,999 copies but sells for $1 dollar, that don't seem right.

IS THIS THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE DAWN OF MAN - CSGO IS NOT ON THE LIST??? Shocked


Well it is perfectly right if the list is based on Rev. I guess most thought this list was based on units sold?

Lol, sueing Amazon because the post sometimes runs a bit slower a week before Xmas.

Fuck right the fuck off.

And trust me, I'm on the front lines with my own Amazon store knowing exactly how fucking retarded that company is, but this is retarded. You can live without a discount waffle iron for another 24 hours.

Yeah, if you get caught with late packages in 2017, you have learned nothing. Order earlier. It seems there will be people who will order Saturday just to bitch about a missed delivery before Christmas. And when talking mouths on TV start talking about "carriers still haven't learned, still use excuses like weather and fires and ...". Well I'm sorry but weather and your other ideas are all reasons that can totally stop delivery, what are you suggesting putting people at big risk over a buyers procrastination? In fact their bad planning messes up emergency medical deliveries during this time. What companies are going to build a network to handle volumes that max out around 10 days a year? No, how about people understand, there are boundaries to most everything in life and use their brain for what it is for.

there are new "monopolies" all the time.

but you cant have Netflix or Disney hogging up all the bandwidth and them not having to pay for it.
Please explain to me how they are not paying for their bandwidth. Are ISPs providing free Internet access to Netflix and Disney? Now THAT would be a story...

Your comments show you either have no grasp of the actual facts about NN or, more likely, you are just a simple troll.

They pay $125/mo for the top-tier choice in their market, some only have one choice.

I predict States will be getting involved and they aren't that big.
Are you saying the states are not as big as the Koch brothers, even R.I.?
How about the bros and comcast combined, who's bigger then?
No, the states are paid for by these folks and their special interest lobbyists.

Not all states want power to the people, but there are some that try much harder than others, those I feel if they see gouginh, they will step up and take action. I could be wrong, but I believe WA and CA have already made mention. But as much as we might not like this ruling, you still have to see the bad happen first. So we'll see.

Jesus christ you're dumb if you believe this, the last 20 years of PC gaming has been a disaster with the acceptance of drm and mmo's having normalized basically renting games in perpetuity from game companies, very little on the dedicated server side and mod tools from major AAA games compared to the 90's.

Disaster? It has thrived like it never has. There are 1000's of games, overall prices are lower, tons of choices in each genre. Back then it was dry times you had to wait and dream of releases. DRM pfff...

I think you missed the sarcasm.

Was it sarcasm? Sounds like a valid point, guy comes out talking about copying ideas, like his is original and then a day or two later announce they are going to do replays, again not all that original. To me that doesn't mean the game is bad at all though, just sort of odd logic being used over there. As one said, you sold 22 million be happy.

Have any of Rockstar's money suits bothered to look at the stats for VR?

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Why are they releasing a game for a dead technology or at least a tech with no interest? The only possible thing I can come up with is HTC and Valve are paying Rockstar to make LA Noire into a VR game for Vive as a way to boost sales.

I doubt it, if you cared to frequent VR spaces, you can see things are healthy enough, growing and those coming in are blown away. But whatever, you just want to close the door.
