But then again, you in particular seem to have a thang for having an entirely different opinion than the majority. Nothing wrong with that, just painstakingly apparent.

I think people should be supported for their work, not see identical experiences give them nothing in return thanks to reselling games as if they were physical objects that lose value over time. I hope this fails.

Now imagine somebody would put those movies on something like a disc. And sell it to you. And then - would you be able to resell it? I know, I got strange ideas with movies on discs, but nevertheless.... Okay, that wouldn't work if you bought the disc but the movie would be somehow bound to some user account of yours.
I like the old times, where we bought a tape, watched it and sold it again.
I like Steam, got a lot of games on Steam, but I'd really love to sell some of those that I either don't like or will never play again. You know, like in old times.

Yeah I don't agree with him because while it *does* cause distortion it also causes me nausea. So if a game deadlocks the fov to 60 (Syndicate, Darkness 2, Bioshock) it's not subjective that I get sick within 30 minutes.
So I don't give a damn what the reasons are. Deadlocked FOV is a stupid decision and an attack on my health.

I don't get how you deny the very video someone posted here as inaccurate and say "it's because you played Quake!"
Dude, the brain expects to see a certain field of view. A monitor becomes like a window. If you don't see as much as you're supposed to the brain gets... mixed.

I remember playing Skyrim for the first time and not being able to put my finger on the reason why I had trouble focussing when looking around. It made me crazy. I wanted to knock out my brain with a sledgehammer at some point. Luckily, just in time, I realized increasing the FOV took care of that problem.

"Low fov haters", I roll my eyes a bit when I see stuff like that. Also the word hater is my candidate for most overused and least understood word of the past year.
Thankfully it's a non issue for this game since the developers were smart enough to recognize FOV adjustment on the PC is an oft requested feature for a reason.

low FOV haters?
Can I buy this logic in a jar? Low FOV motion sickness is a medical issue, not a damned choice! If you don't suffer from it you are not having the setup required to suffer from it (large screen, less than arm length distance).
If you don't agree with scientific facts (and that is the case for the FOV and what is optimal at what distance : screensize : aspect) then nobody can help you. But we are not even hating low fov, we are hating on companies deadlocking it with bullshit excuses....

Sleeping dogs stuff (even DLC) is 75% off. $10 for the game.
The DLC is confusing. The dragon master pack claims to have 5 dlc, but lists only 3. As well, once thats purchased, steam still lets you purchase the the individual ones you supposedly already own. Someone screwed up there.
I'm installing it right now so I can't tell WTF I actually own yet.
Speaking of DLC, steam's tracking for it as always is horrendous. It should be shown on the main page with the list of DLC which ones you own and don't own. You end up having to add all to cart and remove one at a time, and then steam's cart bugs out sometimes if you remove too many items too quickly and clears your cart, making you start all over. Which is a big pain if its a 30 or so DLC like with magicka.
Speaking of the cart, valve get into the last decade and give us checkboxes and select all options for the cart, so its easier to manipulate the cart.

65 just doesn't work for PC when you're sitting closer to the screen.

Sega getting Relic is awesome, looking at Total War. I hope they buy the Homeworld IP when the legacy IPs go on sale.
Except for the often heard comments about Sega having financial troubles themselves. I guess they're not that broke if they can fork over $26.6 million.

That's a fair point. I should amend my statement to "the dumbest fucking decision Volition OR THQ ever made." :)

The microtranactions are there for the lazy, they won't force anyone to buy them or unbalance gameplay to push people towards it. Other publishers do the same thing, it's amazing to me that there's such a hate for EA here though, every publisher is on the DLC/microtransaction bandwagon at this point. It's like you guys think it's only EA who does this sort of thing.
