Who cares? It's a fucking phone. Now if it were the cure for cancer, or a suitcase nuke or something, that would be newsworthy. This is up there with celebrity "news".

Because tech news often includes a cure for cancer.

Let alone PC gaming for that matter....

Don't patronize him. He's absolutely right. News should only be reported when it pertains to a cure for cancer.

I'm guessing plenty of people leave their cell phones at bars. So why is it so hard to believe that someone carrying an unreleased phone may accidentally do the same? He/she was clearly consuming alcohol which increases their chances of making stupid mistakes.

because of how easy it is to track any smart/android phone. if you were a company interested in keeping it secret, it would be very easy to keep tabs on the location of each handset. it reeks of marketing's uncreative diddling.


Tracking the device has nothing to do with this. If the drunkard got drunk enough, he may not realize he left it - or be capable of retrieving it - until the next day.

All I'm saying is this shit happens very often but you're only going to hear about it when it's an unreleased device. Who cares if someone left their iPhone4 at a bar? No one. It just goes into lost and found.

One comment: I appreciate Brad coming here and answering questions, explaining the game and the rollout, etc. It's not easy to come into the lion's den with all that's gone on recently. And few employees of any company interact with forums in this way. It's much easier just to insulate yourself from your customers.

I want Stardock to be successful. Few game companies make games like this anymore. And I've really enjoyed the SD games I've owned: Galciv 2 and Sins. And I'll be picking E:FE up as well.

Hey Brad: think you could update your screen name from "draginol" to "Brad W"? I didn't realize it was you until I was prompted to check after your 3rd comment.

This is hardly the lion's den. It's a gathering of obtuse gamers who thrive off incessant whining.

The very first FAQ entry at the bottom of the page:

I see several different art styles in the video and project page. What will this game actually look like?
Hero-U will be a top-down, 2D, tiled game. The overhead view you can see for a few seconds in the video represents the perspective, but *not* the look of the final art. It is a first concept drawing. Key game scenes will also be represented by full painted backgrounds such as you see in the video and in the project description. Conversations and combat will use large animated characters on each side of the screen. We are using this approach because it will let us include the best story and game play, while staying within our budget limitations. If we meet stretch goals, we will increase the art budget and have more painted background scenes as well as more tile variations.

I played the heck out of LoL - it is a good game with a pretty awful community.

Business Insider has their yearly revenue estimated at $25 Million for 2010. They released in 2009. There is no way in hell that they are now pulling in $5 Million per day.

My guess: "Ngmoco GM and free-to-play expert Ben Cousins" is notsomuch of an expert afterall. I found an article where he says consoles are dying.

Why can't people realize that PC gaming, console gaming, and mobile gaming can and will co-exist together?

Yes, although I would rate the voiceovers and FMV as average (far from terrible). I play a game like this primarily for the mechanics, not the visuals/audio.

Also, it is not easy. If you minimize your reloads because you made a mistake then the game is really quite challenging and entertaining.

1. It looks like countries don't leave xcom funding until the end of the month, so if you have the opportunity, use your satellite before the end of the month.

This is great. I've had so many countries leave xcom because I couldn't get satellites up fast enough - I eventually started over. I'll still have that issue but this will slow it down. I assume there's no "perfect game" where you can prevent all countries from dropping before the end.

Edit: They also changed the default QuickSave key from F12 to F10. Now I won't take a screenshot every time I quick save

It is unnecessary to replace the Start button in Windows 8 if you just give yourself a little time to adapt to the OS.

How simple some people are just blows my mind.

I wonder if people knew about iPhones when buying galaxy phones.

I think people knew of iphones, but avoided them. ...
Just a theory.

Pretty much a fact. Consumers savvy enough to choose the Galaxy S III almost certainly know all about the iPhone (who doesn't?) I would wager the opposite is true however, that not all iPhone consumers know much about Android phones. Of course that's just my jaded opinion.

I agree and personally think that the S3 is an excellent device. I'm pretty sure that with a modded ROM it is the best phone available.

If it's screen didn't have that awful Pentile blue tinge, I might agree with you. The HTC One X has the better screen; so does an iPhone 4S+.

I've personally never noticed that, but maybe I will now.. jerk!

If only Apple could afford to hiring competent QA engineers and perform proper testing before each new release.

Meh, I purchased it since I own all the other xpacks. My wife likes WoW so we re-subbed to try MoP.

Honestly, it feels lack luster to both of us. It could be the xpack or it could be we're just done with WoW once and for all.

News Comments > Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt

Windows 8 is actually quite good. It's stable and more responsive/smooth than Windows 7. I've had zero compatibility issues.

My only complaint is that more games/apps are metro-enabled so I can stop going to the traditional desktop.

Win8 is a different interface than previous versions of Windows. If you don't embrace that when you start using it then you're just going to end up spewing complaints all over the internet. However, if you actually give it a chance then you might actually like it.

As City of Heroes is shutting down, I'm looking for something else, and TSW was one on the list. Layoffs and management shuffles after launch don't inspire me with confidence.

To be fair, you WERE playing City of Heroes which means you'll play just about anything...
