I'm sure they're intentionally preventing non-US customers from accessing their download service for no reason whatsoever other than "we don't want your money".

no it's a pack of shit eating lawyers and parasitic corporate douchebags who want more $$ then they deserve to release rights for these things to other countries. they see new golden age in the market for middle-manning usage rights for amurikan media outside of the us, and withholding rights to countries who don't play by the MAFIAA rules. what an ironically comedic coincidence of name's they chose for that group.

Sounds like a good explanation and doesn't sound like Amazon's fault.

I just received a Kindle Fire as a gift so let's not bash them today.

If you are in US, Amazon has it for $16 right now on their download service.

I'm not. I have no idea why Amazon limits downloads to the US. That's just plain bad business. Oh well, I guess they really don't want money from hundreds of millions of other gamers around the globe.

I'm sure they're intentionally preventing non-US customers from accessing their download service for no reason whatsoever other than "we don't want your money".

Considering the irrational love people have for Valve and Steam itself, I don't really take majority opinion on my comments as some kind of clear sign that I am in the wrong. Sorry.
There's nothing "irrational" about it. Steam offers a service that is miles beyond anything offered by the competition. It's certainly not without its flaws and I'm the first to point them out, whether it be with their policies regarding VAC, the inability to block automatic updates, the requirement to have Steam running for retail games and the (mild) form of DRM they use.

But Steam has dramatically improved gaming from how it used to be, with CD-checks, manual patches, inconsistent screenshot functionality, OS compatibility, manual installers, purchasing, etc. Going forward I'd like to see increased use of Steam Cloud (including a manual version that creates a local backup that supports all games), removal of existing DRM (and blocking of 3rd party DRM), the ability to roll back to previous versions of games, further improved security, etc. But improvements are being made all the time.

I agree and am very fond of Steam. Oh, and all the minor issues that people complain about? They have the power to easily make them go away: just remove that stick from your uptight ass.

I've been trying to explain to a friend of mine why he should wait 3 to 6 months before buying this (or any) major title.
Instead, I'll just point him to this thread.

Carry on...

Nice! You definitely want to prevent him from really enjoying himself for as long as possible. Why limit yourself to 6 months? Tell him to never buy this game at all.

He sure is lucky to have you as a friend.

On a totally unrelated note, I'm level 30 and have never had an issue with Skyrim before or after the patch. I'm sure I'm in the gross minority which is why this game is getting absolutely awful reviews.

Why is this a troll? He sold something that wasn't even a finished product and made millions off it.

There isn't anything wrong with that, he was fully up front with what people were buying and has always offered a free version that functions as a demo. People were able to enjoy it and use the product regardless of its version number.

Now, what he considers a finished product (officially released), requires mods to be what it should have been.

That's just your opinion and you don't speak for anyone else. I played Minecraft without mods and fully enjoyed the experience. He's adding mod framework because people want to customize their experience with the game, not because the game is fatally flawed without it. That's part of what makes Minecraft so powerful that you don't seem to understand, it's many different things to many people despite being one core product. Many people choose to extend the replay value of the game with mods and that's their right, he is under no obligation to compensate people based on what people do with his game though.

It's not a troll. You're just upset that I disagree with your viewpoint.

No, it's a troll. The language you used and the inability to see or consider another view point are what clearly labels it a troll. Not to mention it was downright stupid, as if he should be liable to somehow distribute money to others based on random people doing things to his game that he probably doesn't even have knowledge of.

Hmmm... I disagree on all points.

That's fine, but plenty of people do.

Yet only Notch benefits financially... Go go shyster Notch!

He doesn't charge people for others work so your shyster troll is unsurprisingly invalid. People can charge whatever they want for their mod and distribute it however they please, the fact is that most mods aren't worth paying for which is why we see so few paid ones.

I'm not sure the message we want to send to companies (small or large) is that they are liable for collecting revenues on behalf of mod makers either. That will be a quick way to kill modding scenes for new games, what little we see these days. I'd rather be allowed to do it within the context of the license myself, I don't want a publisher/developer doing it for me.

Mods ARE Minecraft!

If you are playing vanilla Minecraft, you will be bored out of your skull in a few hours. Mods add almost all of the gameplay and content to your Minecraft world.

Seems kinda silly to pump it all out in a few weeks after release if that's all they ever had. Wouldn't it have been more effective to do like a midweek sale for the game and past DLC every time they brought out a new DLC, and space it out one a month at least?

Yea, you're probably right. I like the game and it was priced right IMO. I do think they could still make a nice amount of $$ from a few more DLC packs but its not a big deal to me.

I'm hoping they'll take this same engine/concept and add multiplayer support. Dungeon Defenders did a good job but I think I'm already done with it.

I can see how this game wouldn't appeal to people who are incapable of playing anything more complex than call of duty or who watch wrestling.

Yes, those are additional groups who this game may appeal to. I'm glad we see eye to eye on this.

LOL, reading comprehension fail.

Upcoming features may or may not be in the release version. For instance, dual weilding is in that list. I'm interested in what's the major changes (specifically new features) between a year ago and now, not what might change in 2012.

As for bugs being listed differently than new features. Sure. Did you read it?
Its mostly things like "New settings in Server.properties: view-distance, allow-nether" and "New Bow shooting sounds" neither of which I care about.

Even if I stick to JUST the new features list on that link, its not a trivial amount of time (unlike your claims) to read that 50 page document.

In addition, with some changes, its hard to tell if they are trivial or not.

Whatever man, if you actually visited that link you'd see that what's clearly in the 1.0 release section WILL be in the next release.

The features are listed differently, some releases don't have anything but bug fixes. For those that do have new features the most major additions ARE RIGHT AT THE TOP OF EACH ENTRY. If you want to know if it's a trivial change or not just click on the link that they so generously provided that will take you to a page with more details about it. How much easier do you need it to be?

It sounds to me like you'd rather have something tell you why they think you should play MC rather than making a qualified decision for yourself.

Are you intentionally missing his point? I think so.

No, Verno. You seem to be missing the point. What I am saying is that this particular game strikes me as one that would only be interesting to very bored adults or children.

Hopefully this now makes sense to you.

The only sense I made out of it is that you're a complete douche-bag who likes to think he's better than other people based on what games he chooses to play.

You're wrong about me being a douche bag but you're right about me being better than you. <3

Say what? Granted... things have improved a lot and Steam has come a long way but let's not forget the very past you mentioned. And in that regard what do you mean with "respect"? You mean "respect" as in forcing a sluggish, buggy, unstable, unresponsive, plain fucking annoying, intrusive piece of shit client down our collective throats? Yeah. That's some really great 'spect they showed us right there. I'm still in awe. No, really. I am .

Say what? The steam client is and has been just fine. It brings a lot more convenience to the table then it does inconvenience.

If it is sluggish for you, perhaps it is time to upgrade your Mendocino processor to something more modern.

Or maybe you just belong on a console instead.
