News Comments > Valve Loses AU Legal Dispute

The Steam user reviews are presently, imo, more effective than this AU law.

guarantees about goods being of acceptable quality.

Acceptable quality is hard to pin down. Maybe the recent Batman PC release would qualify as unacceptable quality, or not? Do we know yet?

So consider that China is now less communist and more capitalist than the USA and much of the western world. We don't produce much capital.

Dean Hall took the money and ran.

Citation please? It was my understanding that BI kept most of the revenue from sales.

Once had the majority of your would-be customers buy into your game and have their money, just how much incentive is there to really finish it, and not just walk away?

The motivation is to keep a good rapport with their customers and stay competitive in the marketplace. It was still in their interest to do a good job on DayZ SA, and they've not delivered acceptable performance. What motivates people and developers varies a lot.

Maybe the project didn't inspire them. DayZ is a very different direction for BI. They like the sandbox milsim shooter genre.

I've tried about 5 times to finish Two Worlds II. Just can't seem to do it. Play for a day or two then get bored of it, delete it then try again in a year or two when there is a lull in games.

This. TW1 had charm that wasn't repeated in II. Glad to hear TW3 is in the works though. There might still be hope! Bring back the horse combat and beautiful + huge explorable world of TW1 in TW3!

$60 for this? Too much!

edit: right now it's at the very bottom of page 5 of Steam's top seller list.

The game is gorgeous and basically runs with 144fps constantly. It's a very well optimized game. The main story, however, is short as hell and somehow the entire environment didn't have that foreign, majestic feel JC2 had.

The game was a big freaking meh. Short as fuck.

Playing JC2 currently and having hella fun. Will pick up JC3 next year, when it's complete.

Good idea. IMO JC2 is the better game. I agree that JC3 is meh.

When our country is dependent on foreigners to buy up our debt, this is the inevitable consequence. They will buy us out. We exported most of our manufacturing industry abroad in exchange for cheap goods and easy money. This is the result of our failed centrally planned easy money policies by the Fed.

Suppa7 I agree that the deregulations were reckless. I agree also with what you are saying, in spite of the fact of your offensive name calling of me as an idiot.

I still insist that our monetary system is evil and that it amplifies our greedy and adversarial nature. As you note, it is controlled by private banks in partnership with the government. That is regulations that favor private banks. Regulations are not all good, and yes also not all deregulations are good I agree with that too.

Maybe a government solution isn't the only answer, but letting greedy corporations try to fix the problem sure as hell isn't the answer either. If it was that simple to lower costs, why aren't AAA games cheaper? Or anything else for that matter?

The 'greedy corporations' are a product of financial regulations. Put simply, the mandated debt currency system mandates everyone try to hoard and out compete everyone else, lest they default on loans. Also when the regulations 'promote' real estate or whatever market, these false signals create bubbles etc.. The problem isn't as simple as 'corporate greed'. We need to look at the system in which they are trying to work and the unintended consequences of our centrally planned economy.

and re-balanced gameplay, along with new enemies and weaponry (cyber-katana!).

Great! Not just graphics but the rest are welcome. I played the original some but stopped after a few hours. I did feel the graphics were lackluster even back then.

And the Atari 800 floppy drive had a section it could read but not write. So people would produce floppies and read unlock permission from that section, but people couldn't copy and create a new floppy that way. Unless you had an off-brand floppy drive, that is.

I always wanted one of those Percom drives. That said the 1050's were built very well and a great many of them still work to this day.

That's GOOD news for everyone. Hyperion comes off as a bunch of stingy control freaks in that statement. Their fears are going to become self fulfilling prophecy if they view things that way.
