What I keep asking myself is what os is on your mobile phones? I hope it's not Android or iOS, because the spyware that comes with these is at least as obnoxious as Win10's is.

Don't worry, Android or iOS is okay because it's not MS.

Freeing up the assets they need to continue with their attempts to acquire a controlling interest in Ubisoft. That should be a fun fight.

That was my exact thought, maybe with a bit of luck without the amount of control that vivendi had we'll see some better shit out of Blizzard.

HEY GUYS, GUYS! I've got this brilliant idea, let's go episodic! It worked great for Steam!

Did anyone like Tropico 5? The user reviews for the game didn't appear overly positive. I really enjoyed the first and third one, I didn't like 4 quite as much.

It wasn't bad, some of the humor was pretty damn good. Was it on T3 or T4? Nah, but still pretty good.

I want to say something bad, but $5/mo. is pretty cheap.

But, how far will it go, and how long will the quality of game selection last?

How do I know what games they will add in the future? Sure, this first selection seems great, but of course they're going to offer a great selection initially.

The next selection could be complete shit.

Their next title (some great new game) could be "not included in Origin Access" because of whatever reasons.

Then you begin to see less value in paying an Origin Access subscription.

Then what? You stop paying for Origin Access? Then what? You lose all your games?

Too many questions that I can't be bothered to research, because these asshats didn't put the answers in their gay multiverse video (above).

All your answers are here.

Luckily EA suspended my EA account due to a charge back even though I have no payment info in Origin and have never bought anything directly from EA. That's one way to keep me from ever buying one of their games.

That's what small claims court is for FYI.

Except... Origin.

It sure has a hell of a lot better support than Steam.

? Never noticed that?

The incidence of it happening to people is random. If I die, and use the reload last save it can take upwards of a minute to load a save even on a SSD. However, if I exit to the main menu and load it will load the save in under 20 seconds. Just started playing, so I'll see if this is fixed in a couple and update.

Yep, the load problem is now fixed. Takes around 15 seconds to load a save again.

Isn't that the normal launch price in Canadian dollars? That exchange rate isn't your friend.

No it's not. Before the Canadian dollar was at $1:$0.80/0.75USD a few years ago the prices here were in the $59-69 range, that's even when we were at the situation we're at now. Then the prices started dropping into the $59 region, and you could buy a game here in Canada for less than you could in the US. And a lot of people started buying games directly on steam instead of 3rd party sites.

Then the dollar started moving back to the $0.70:$1USD ratio it's been in the past, and the prices went through the fucking roof. It reminds me of the early 00's, when a new video game was $80-100 here. Piracy as you can guess exploded up here in Canada, it then started coming in line around 06/08ish where you could buy it very close to the $59USD/59-69CAD at retail.

I can still buy a copy at retail with tax then it's cheaper to buy it through Steam now. So it's easy to tell where the gouging is, it also seems that publishers are forgetting COL, and here in Canada there really hasn't been an increase in wages even though everything from food to fuel has gone up 25% in the last 3-4 years.

That AMA was a fucking clusterfuck, the mods at /r/iama need to get their shit together. Nearly 10m subs and they're trying to whine over brigading of questions, then turn the entire fucking thing into a comment graveyard.

Do you really believe that? You think there's that much margin for HTC to undercut Oculus while matching or surpassing features/specs?

When they were talking about a $400 ballpark Oculus, HTC was already basically saying Vive would be "slightly more expensive" than the Rift. So while they may be able to price cheaper, "half" or even close to half, is probably out of the question.

I'm expecting them to undercut them by at least 30% if not a bit more. That's the smart business decision even if it costs them money in the short term, not only are they going to capitalize on the demand for the product, but capitalize on it being cheaper while doing the same job. There's also a chance I could be wrong, if I am no big deal.

It'll likely be half the cost.

I've thrown the DK2 on like 30+ people. Never seen anyone get sick. That includes old folks too.

I've tried the DK1 and DK2 and gotten violently ill with a skull splitting migraine each time. It only takes 5 minutes or so before I start feeling nausea from it. I never had a real problem with VR headsets back in the mid and late 90's but that was before I had a head injury, so that's likely the cause.

Not sure where that's coming from. ...


I'm pretty confident that Psychonauts 2 will be delivered. It may not live up to the hype but it'll be delivered and will most likely be a solid follow-up.

How's df-9 doing these days? This isn't the first time, or even the 3rd time that DF has pulled the "we need more moniez guys" bit.

I had stopped using newegg after they refused to take a return from me. I had switched to tigerdirect which was much more customer service friendly.

Well, there goes that idea.

If you live in Canada use Canadacomputers. Tigerdirect though is going to be in for a rude awakening they operate stores and have an online presence here in Canada, and failing to disclose that they refuse returns in a clear manner is going to land them in regulatory hot water. But it sounds like Tigerdirect doesn't want customers anymore, so that makes it easy when I go looking for computer parts.

No one wants to be Edmonton. That's like serving a sentence.

Well Edmonton is basically the opposite of Toronto or Montreal. There's 'hip' areas, and overpriced areas in all three cities, the nice thing about Edmonton is it generally doesn't have the asshole factor of TO or Montreal. For someone like me, who grew up in small towns Edmonton has always been great when I lived out in western canada. I detest Toronto and Montreal, I lived in Toronto(about a block off the Danforth subway station) back ~10 years ago with my ex for a while. Hated every minute of it, hated the traffic, people, and the nightlife to boot.

Even back then rent was insane, we were paying $1200/mo for a basement apt. Fuck that right in the neck.
