Ubisoft and Toronto. Two of my least favorite things, together at last! Joy!

The difference is in the function, correct me if i am wrong. Why would i want to buy iPad and strain my eyes when i can read kindle which is sharper and has better properties than printed paper?

Agreed. I'm amazed that so many people thought the iPad would somehow compete with the Kindle as an e-Reader given the fact the iPad uses an LCD.

Then throw in size/weight, battery life, cost, etc, and it's really no comparison at all.

I snagged X3: Gold as well. Odd they took it off, but maybe it's going up for sale tomorrow?

I'm marginally interested in Street Fighter IV. Anybody play it on PC? How's online?

I have it on PC. Works great, but you'll want a gamepad and/or SF-style joystick to get most enjoyment out of it.

Haven't played it online, though.

Loved the original Crysis and here's hoping they don't saddle Crysis 2 with some retarded DRM.

Loved the first Crysis and would have happily paid $20 for Warhead if it wasn't for the install limit. Sad to see they *still* haven't removed that, otherwise I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Oh well. Hopefully this week Mirror's Edge, Dead Space and/or Mass Effect will go on sale. Been wanting those too and I believe the Steam versions had SecuROM removed from them.

Well, before I address the main point I just want to take a slightly more controversial route: You can put a 'J' in front of it, but it's not an RPG. You don't make any choices, you don't create a character, you don't live your character... I don't know what those are - adventure games maybe? But they're not RPG's.

Truth.

Wait a minute, people hate Steam now? Really? A convenient/fast digital distribution service with frequent, amazing sales? Probably one of the better things to happen to PC gaming in the past decade? Am I missing something?

PC Gamers hate anything and everything. It makes them... special.

With that said, I really don't see any irony in what I said.

Of course you don't.

This DRM is created to stop people from downloading and playing these games without paying for them at the time. Which is exactly what you do.

Your brain must be exhausted with all the hoops it keeps jumping through to justify yourself.

Yeah, it is somewhat ironic that Ubisoft's attempts to gain sales actually results in me not buying their games.

No, the irony is Mr. "I don't buy games without playing them first, thus justifying my piracy and then arbitrarily deciding on a price indepedent of the game company because I have this sense of over-entitlement and feel that I should get to play whatever I want, whenever I want regardless of the game company's rights in the issue" telling game companies how to increase sales.

Yeah.

No, I'm never first in line because I don't buy games without playing them first. But if the games prove to be good, I do buy them, as opposed to the current situation where I'll never buy any Ubisoft game that has this DRM.

Rhetorical question is rhetorical.

Also: massive irony.

It's really not that hard to understand this stuff but Ubisoft is apparently clueless. A consecutive release with minimal DRM and standard pricing is going to sell a lot better than a delayed release with excessive DRM and unreasonably high pricing. If EA, of all companies, has the sense to do this, why can't Ubisoft?

Really? So if Ubisoft did all this, you'd be first in line to buy their games right?

You mean by taking away all our control of playing a game and implementing draconian, terrible DRMs? We sure have no idea! You can keep the DRM, I'll keep my rights. I won't bend over and take it up like many corporate whores who only want to play the latest derivative POS and will sacrifice anything in the name of playing the latest.

Obviously I was talking about the pricing of games, not DRM, but hey, why let that get in the way of rabid gamer outrage?

Hey StingingVelvet, So $60.00 is good for games in this day and age? Don’t kid yourself, it is not. Most games now are slapped out onto the market with 4 hrs tops in game play. Also lacking in features or story. This is not what I call a good deal in fact it’s insulting that you pay good money to get short changed.

First, I call B.S. that most games have "4 hrs tops in gameplay" (esp. with multiplayer factored in the mix). And the reality is you can find plenty of games thin on gameplay throughout gaming's history.
I recall spending I think around $40 for KQII back in the day (1987-88 maybe?). Took maybe 4-5 hours to beat even for a 10 year old. And in today's dollars, it would have cost ~$75.

I repeat, gamers are frickin' spoiled and have no idea.
