So, they are going to recreate the best part of the best movie for us: the podracing from Episode One. What a great idea!

Do I even need a sarcasm tag?

Uhh... that videogame was actually super freaking awesome back in the day. Especially on a LAN.

I'm totally in line with Flak for a HD re-release.
And I'll be in line right behind you. Both the PC and N64 versions were excellent games.

Hey give them credit, no added BS for extra $$. This should be applauded at the least.
Agreed. This is good news.

Better late than Arkham Knight,
So I agree that EA caring and making the PC version a better game is an improvement over them releasing a quick & dirty console port (see: 30fps NFS The Run).

That said, the fact that this is delayed worries me. This delay gives EA the opportunity to improve the game, but it also puts one foot in the door on cancellation. It would be a lot easier to cancel it if the console launch doesn't go well, or if the delay hurts PC sales, it becomes ammunition for canceling further PC releases.

Gambling has found the digital generations sucker play.

It seems like every online game now has this cheesy form of gambling in the cash shops. They go by different names, Packs, Mystery Boxes, etc. You pay cash for an package containing one or several items, with a very small chance it might be something of value. Game boards are full of "I bought X hundred packs and only got worthless items" posts. There are also the braggarts that show off their lucky find, that they always claim was in the ONLY pack they bought, when they actually, bought hundreds on a daily basis for weeks.

This really needs to be regulated.

Wait till this hits the home shopping network or Amazon.

One of the saddest developments today and makes me lose respect for GOG.
Agreed in full. There are serious ethical problems with these systems. They take advantage of the vulnerable and stupid.

QUESTION: Does anyone know what steam makes activating a key you bought elsewhere and allowing you to download and make it a steam game? I assume they make something, they have to get the keys, host etc.
Valve currently lets publishers generate keys for free (though I believe there's some kind of limit on how many can be generated at once). However I also fully expect that if publishers outright abused this and started using it primarily as a means to keep Valve from taking their cut, Valve would pull that privilege.

As a Vita owner, I'm a bit amazed that a major publisher is releasing a Vita game at this time. We tend to get ignored by everyone.

Hooray! It's not a deep series, but it's a ton of fun. The DS version of the first game is a true classic.

Looks like Windows 10 is not the success Microsoft was hoping for. Could be that a lot of users don't want to put spyware on their systems. Maybe at some point it will make it to Windows 8 levels.

Not sure how 75M installs or whatever is not successful.
Indeed. Win10 installations are ahead of expectations, according to Paul Thurrott.

2TB/month over cellular? T-Mobile should be ashamed and embarrassed for even allowing it to be technically possible for a customer to accomplish this. How does that even happen...

"Unlimited."

But yeah, they should be able to detect when people are exclusively running up 100 GB on their phone only, and 5 GB to their phone and 95 GB to their laptop using the phone's 4G signal.

Unlimited means unlimited. Why is everyone taking the fucking telecom's side here? Shills and g-men, the lot of you....
It is unlimited, for your phone. Tethered devices are limited to 7GB. Scummy users were manipulating their phones into tricking T-Mo into thinking it was the phone consuming the data, when in fact it was a tethered device.

The idea of a Boarderlands movie seems like a goofier, ultraviolent version of Firefly.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...
Firefly meets Guardians of the Galaxy.

It won't be easy to get right, but it can definitely be done. And I'm all for it.

No. But according to the player stats there are a ton of LOL nerds, so it's still important to a lot of people.

I like that it's 60fps. Though the 30fps cinematics are really jarring as a result.

If Derek Smart played it snide, compact, and cool, his words would've been a lot harder to discard by this clown. He would've had more impact.

Alas, Derek Smart cannot control his emotions.

Derek Smart.
Well that's just great. You've doomed us all.
