But I have no doubt Intel will marginally the gaming crown back with a +19% IPC jump if they maintain clock speeds

That is just marketing. It is NOT 19% across the board, it is for very specific case that happens.

Screw this game.

It is a "free" game that installs ring 0 drivers on your system, so they can spy on what you are running, and report back. Tencent owns these guys as well, so there is no accountability at all, Tencent MUST do whatever China wants.

While personally, I am not interested in this game (I don't care for MMOs),
Just wanted to say, it was nice of the devs to offer the keys, and for Blue's News to hand them out!

they have a great deal.

This seems...sketchy from all sides. The investor clearly didn’t look into what they were investing in very closely, and Newegg does appear to have purchased questionably. I hope Newegg and its devastating patent troll destroying legal team stays around, although after their star lawyer left, it’s been quiet on the troll-smashing front. If I recall correctly, he left about a year ago...was it because of the buyout?
Yes, he bailed when newegg was sold, did not like the new owners at all.
So, their legal team is a shadow of itself, no more patent busting will be going on anymore.

Newegg is a much worse company these days, they rarely compete on price, and their customer support is much worse than before.
I avoid them when I can.

It is required, since, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is free (if you already have AotS) and they don't sell AotS anymore, it is just 'Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation'.

Overall, AMD brought in much needed competition!
Intel don't have as big of a strangle hold as before.

I expect AMD to only get better, OS & game & Apps to get more optimized for AMD as well.

When AMD isn't hamstrung by dual channel RAM will be the next thing.

While everyone knows it is coming, those specs are a joke.
The Fury don't even have 8GB VRAM, so they got that wrong as well.

This really isn't any story at all, just marketing errors.

game still feels rushed and unfinished, and they're already peddling DLC... sigh, had such high hopes for this one

Yeah, game doesn't feel done, they just keep tacking things on, and now, with the DLC BS, they expect you to pay more for stuff that should have been in the game day 1.

They need more unit types as well, it gets really boring with the few options you have now.

This makes no sense... they expect people to keep paying for missions?
Stop this madness, and say hell no!

HITMAN starts with a Prologue Mission and a Paris location on March 11th, followed by the next location, set in Italy releasing in April and then Morocco releasing in May. From there HITMAN will deliver regular monthly content updates, including three additional locations; Thailand, the US and Japan until the season concludes in Japan later in 2016. In addition it features weekly live events and additional planned content in-between the monthly updates.

Who wouldn't want a game about cleaning(?), perhaps the most enjoyable thing anyone can do in the day!

"You take up a job as a housekeeper. Every week, an hour before sunset, you clean the swanky bachelor pad of the wealthy Gabriel Ortega."

Then they wonder why it failed?
The video on steam was crap, you have no idea on what you actually do.

I just feel sad at all the suckers that paid for this game... at least on steam, you can now do refunds!

Yeah, they had to add DRM back in from the GOG versions...that is the real reason why they needed to "update".

Looks like it's finally time to partition my Xubuntu drive in half (1TB) to make room for SteamOS.

You can't do that; the installer (regardless of whether you pick expert mode) WILL ERASE YOUR ENTIRE HARD DRIVE.
Ouch!
Do they even tell you this, or does it just go and do its thing ?

Well... I'll believe it when I see the fix.

In the meantime, having to logon every 30 days or so, still pisses me off.
30 days? Your lucky.
It happens every 10 days or so for me, and yes, I report it, and they throw back a canned response with worthless "trouble shooting".
Nothing in my system changes, except driver updates, and OS patches.

Bah, those idiots dropped support for Vista and I still have a few machines that use that OS. Vista basically supports everything that win 7 has (same DX version), so no real reason to pay $$ to "upgrade" them.

actually this guy might have a case. If I am not mistaken this guy left ubisoft to make the game 1666 and THQ was his publisher. When THQ went belly up Ubisoft bought the publishing rights and from the way it looks pulled the plug on his game soon after they gained the publishing rights.

Yes, but as someone else mentioned a few days back on this - can't recall who, might have been Dev or Parralax - this is cute move on Ubisoft's part because they haven't cancelled the game, only suspended it - indefinitely - so it's not technically not a breach of contract. I suppose it comes down to the actual specifics of the contract. But, as these these things aren't undertaken lightly he obviously feels he has a strong enough case to take action on it.
I thought all contracts were null & void once THQ went into bankruptcy?
So.. no, they won't win.

So how can we NOT know who owns the IP? If anything the one who bought it should blast the fanfares and hype us "We will do Homeworld 3" .. but this? This is just weird. No info at all?
Who would even pay more than $50K for Homeworld? Sure it was an interesting series, but having been dead for a decade there's not much value to it right now.
First off, it wasn't $50K, *if* you believe the kickstarter for homeworld. They said they had additional funding. I am guessing it went for $100K minimum.

I am sure that once the court documents are released, we will see who got what, but I have no idea how long that takes.

The game was nice, but, you can make the same type of game cheaper than it would have been to purchase the name, which is why that kickstarter campaign seemed to be really shady.
At least everyone is getting refunds.

Yeah, pretty much the same issue steam had.

All these clients need to operate in a sand box, and not touch anything else.

They updated:

UPDATE: Dino Ignacio, UI Lead at Dead Space developer Visceral Games, has denied today's story about the end of the Dead Space series.

"The reports of our death were greatly exaggerated," he tweeted. "Please stand by."

Ian Milham, creative director at EA and ex-art director on Dead Space, also took to Twitter to deny the story.

"Almost nothing in that article is true," he wrote. Then, in response to a question on Twitter: "I confirm nothing except the hooey in that story."

EA's US PR team has reportedly called the VideoGamer.com report "patently false".

"While we have not announced sales for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and the franchise remains an important IP to EA," an EA spokesperson told Eurogamer.
