I'm using the 11.5a hotfix drivers which were supposedly designed specifically for BRINK. Still runs like ass, though.

This can be summarized as follows:
Game developers on strike because they are being treated exactly the same as they have been treated for the past fifteen years (And never said a fucking peep.)
You'll forgive me for not caring about your plight, Eden Games. You're the idiots that signed the contract that explicitly states "Atari has the right to rape you up the ass / mouth / ear / other convenient hole at its sole discretion."
Don't like your work conditions? Find another job, and this time pay attention to what the contract says before you put your fucking signature on it.

It's not a bad game, but nothing epic. I'm not having any technical issues with the game, I applaud Splash Damage for putting a decent UI into the game, and they get a brownie button for letting you disable motion blur from the menu.

So, basically, with all your previous games you never did that? Great. That's just awesome.
/no interest in DS3.

The article doesn't seem to explain what is going on very well, but from what I can tell, this just seems to be pretty standard client-side hit detection. Is something else interesting going on here?

Seriously Capcom? AE only? Frack you, I've been supporting every PC game you released, I pre-ordered SF4, RE5 and DR2 and now you repay my support with this?
Thanks for nothing.

It was just okay. I tried it on a free weekend and had some fun, but didn't really feel compelled to buy it. If you like class based shooters, your money would be better spent on Monday Night Combat imo.

Yeah, I've vowed never to get into a MtG-style money pit game. This looks suspiciously like that. I like the type of game, and they're usually pretty deep, but I don't like that it often comes down to who's willing to spend the most money to build decks of just the best of the best cards, or to get the right number of each card to build some mega-deck.

Gaming is not getting more expensive... the problem is that prices don't tend to move a lot, so whenever there's nominal upward price pressure people freak out. The NES' main configuration in the US was $150 in 1984, which would be about $325 today, pretty much in line with the major gaming systems. The difference is in the price paid for games - $40-50 per game back then, which was the norm for most any game then, would be $85-110 today, which, if you saw that for anything other than a relatively lavish collector's edition, would be likely to incite riotous levels of nerd rage.
If anything, the main complaints about gaming being too expensive come from three sources. One is younger people with a very limited frame of reference about gaming. Not much you can do about that. The second is the people who complain that they aren't getting as much for their gaming dollar as they used to; this is relatively subjective, but I would argue that, for multiplayer gamers at least, that seems not to hold much water (singleplayer gamers may have some complaints as more and more games feel they need to focus on co-op and competitive multiplayer in order to check off some bullet points on a marketing sheet). The third argument is that there's simply that much more gaming offerings out today, making it that much harder to keep on top of everything from both a time and a cost perspective.

It was supposed to enter beta in late 2009! They haven't released anything for GW in over 3 years which is clearly not ideal.

How is the single player in this game? I don't have many pc-playing friends and it's not often we all have free time simultaneously.

What does Activision have besides COD and Blizzard? They need new IPs, so it's not surprising.
Pretty much this. They're probably looking for new IPs and the cynical in me tells me they're going to bleed it dry too once they get them.
Either way, anyone interested in the stock market should take a closer look at the stocks of both these publishers, especially Take-2 if the merger is announced. Expect prices to spike up.
