News Comments > Activision Blizzard Financials

Net revenue of 1.44 billion is not profit. this is simply 1.44 billion of confirmed sales after any "returns, refunds, doa"

the gross profit margin, being a percentage of this , in this case 23% of 1.44 billion, is still a phenominal amount of 1.44 formatted capacity floppy diskettes!

I's a good thing I still have my original Logitech MX revolution mouse since D1. How else can I click..click..click forever with confidence?

looking forward to D4. Glad to see legacy publishers growing a demi-heart as of late. EA with Command and Conquer remaster, and ActiBlizz with D4 (bury the hatchet that was D3 out of sight and mind please.)
the videogame industry between 2010 to 2019 was the worst on record, bar none.

To all those Accounts and Forum handlers that Blizzard silenced over the years, I'd like for us to all gather here together, in a moment of utter loudness, a battle warcry, to say:

That's Karma.

aren't you grateful, Blizzard?

Bill Gates still has some 60B dollars that he can't give away quick enough, and he still doesn't lend some pocket lint as to give 50M to a startup studio to make AOE4, why does he have no heart?

edit: who is this relic entertainment, and why haven't they been shut down yet for going AWOL with this project?

I'll believe the change of heart in EA once and only once the remastered CNC is installed on my SSD next year, without the silly lootbox curse of course. I uninstalled origin a few days after the demise that was SimCity 2013 and never looked back since.

News Comments > Google Announces Stadia, Their Streaming Service

40. Re: Google Announces Stadia, Their Streaming Service Mar 20, 2019, 14:12 NobleAtreides
 
I welcome this service whole heartedly, I almost forgot Google never had a proper gaming service, since I last logged onto yahoo games over two decades ago. It's about time Google gets a gaming platform, even if it is to play chess & to meet great people all over the world. I admit , the lag issues for modern gaming, that will soon be ironed out once the world migrates away from mechanical drives, and onto NVMe flash based servers, coupled with worldwide 5G deployment.

give it another 4 ~ 5 years, we'll have console grade gaming brought to us by Google, or Disney, if they decide to grow that bulge.

News Comments > StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty CE & Pricing

19. Re: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty CE & Pricing Apr 8, 2010, 15:04 NobleAtreides
 
you people crying $60 is too expensive, for top 10 PC games of all time, you must be unemployed, or live with your mom and no allowance. You had 7 years to save TWO and a HALF CENTS per day, and still have enough left over for a bag of Cheetos. instead, you probably wasted an average of ONE THOUSAND CENTS per day to eat out, drink carbonated Neuron enhancing energy drinks instead.

i don't get these people that cry $60 is too much for a game that you can only either Love, or Hate. There is no inbetween with Starcraft. I for one missed out on SC1, I was busy playing CNC and ZeroHour. Now that EA has destroyed CNC once and for all, I will get into SC2.

News Comments > Another Week of R.U.S.E. Beta

5. Re: Another Week of R.U.S.E. Beta Apr 7, 2010, 09:56 NobleAtreides
 
Ok, we all know DRM sucks a PC Pirates bunghole, but in all honesty, I want to play the new Settlers and give this a good try as well. I really am beginning to lose the understanding of the reason why everyone is so upset about the constant internet connection scheme, when the whole god damn world today is F5-ing Digg, Twitter, Google Searches, poastings, Blogs, Blackberry, Gmail, MSN, Hotmail, pr0ntubes, lets not forget the horny iPad squadrons, all freaking day long,

but OMGAWD a GAME that requires INTERNET to be connected!!! NOOOOOOOO!

seriously, lets get over this.

I have come to see the comments here as part of my daily entertainment and to reinforce my decision for not ever buying or pirating (not even worth tarnishing my HDD platters) another EA game ever again.

News Comments > Diablo II Patch, Ladder Reset

1. Re: Diablo II Patch., Ladder Reset Mar 24, 2010, 09:39 NobleAtreides
 
As much fun and memorable as this game was, do I really want to re-install it and replay it again? It's tempting, but does this patch really add anything new to the table? This game steals alot of gaming hours, so it is something to ponder over. I'm afraid Blizzard, this patch is too late, you abandoned this game for the last few years, with no new content, and now you're whetting our appetites for D3 which will only come out in 4 years from now. Don't even BS me about it being 'possibly' next year, please. I'm angry because I and millions of others love this game, and why not build on this game more often?

sigh....(installs D2 game)

News Comments > The Settlers 7 Patch

4. Re: The Settlers 7 Patch Mar 24, 2010, 09:31 NobleAtreides
 
Why doesn't Facebook or Twitter make their own freaking operating systems? that way, Game developers can concentrate on creating titles for those masses, having those accounts as a requirement, then no one will complain about DRM, and then new startup companies can concentrate on making PC games the gamers will pay to play. Clearly, the immersion levels , gaming learning curves and abilities, of this great divide of players, is Black and White. The great divide is here now anyway, I don't care to have a FB account, but clearly that is where all the money is, so it leaves us veteran gamers with only feelings of angst.

you know D3 is still over 4+ years away, when bluesnews headlines include the words "concept art"
still, i can wait, D3 WILL be worth the wait, that is if there is enough water to last humanity by then, and with a "you can pass GO" after 12-21-2012
