The problem is too much reliance on automated & community moderation. It was easier to keep a lid on hackers in the days of privately run dedicated servers with admins.
I played CS on dedicated servers a lot years ago. You're viewing the world through rose colored glasses, because I remember cheating to be wildly rampant. Speedhacks, wallhacks, aimbots....you name it and it was everywhere. Bans against good players (who weren't cheating) were also a regular thing with ego-driven admins. Punkbuster helped somewhat...but it was still VERY prevalent. But the internet was small then....cheating today facilitated by large hacker groups for PROFIT....not for fun. It's just like the new Crypto malware/virus forks that are all over the place....it didn't seem as bad back then because there wasn't any money in it and the world was smaller, not because we were supermen and more skilled at stopping it.

I know this is the Interwebz....but you really can't have it both ways and be taken seriously. "Valve are money grubbing shitheels who don't ban cheaters to keep their money/transactions moving!" != "Valve are money grubbing shitheels for banning cheaters so that they will buy another copy!" IP bans and MAC bans are a joke. They haven't worked for 10 years. 90% of users are on dynamic IPs...meaning they change regularly. MACs can be spoofed on just about any NIC. That said, I wish that Valve would spend the money to research something that delves deep into component serialization and biometrics to identify users.....but that probably has a decent chance of backfiring falsepositives with the size of the userbase we're talking about.

News Comments > Steam Review Changes to Fight Fraud

It would be nice if they put a caveat in there that only enforced these changes for the first 2 months past release. That would accomplish what they seem to be after.

Those that are criticizing the move because you buy your games elsewhere to stick it to the man....you can still write reviews. Quite frankly, if I'm on the fence and relying on user reviews it's not the number that makes the decision....it's how they're written. If you're posting a firehose of whining and stomping of feet like some do on sites/forums...you look like a moron and your review means little. If you post a reasonable review that explains valid pros or cons to the game, it can sway someone.

I've been very impressed with Galaxy S series and the Nexus series. If you want a more user friendly option that seems to work better with peripherals and has a better camera....Galaxy. If you're more concerned about a virgin experience and feels a touch peppier...Nexus. Both lines have had their battery issues, but the fast charging tends to render them moot.

Very interested in the DS4 adapter, I'd really like to have seamless usage on a PC. I had high hopes for the Steam controller, but the DS4 just hits everything so well...

All that said, I'm not interested in a monthly sub to play...

Hey Blue, where did you get the caster mods? That sounds fantastic.

I think people said that the reason there's a tonal shift between the movie and the TV series is because Fox put a bunch of demands and limitations on Whedon for TV, but eh...
They were also trying to resolve what Whedon had envisioned as a multi-season arc into a two hour movie.

I dusted the series off for the kids a few weeks ago since they were big Castle fans. They loved it....and were howling when I explained how the suits at FOX ruined/cancelled it. Then I held up the brass ring,"But never fear boys, they made a MOVIE!"

They may never forgive me for the death of their favorite character.

Sorry for doublepost... Is anyone playing Starbound? I keep hearing that it is a Terraria remake with janky controls and animations.

Rimworld? I looked at that game and laughed, it looks like something coded in the 90's.

People are nuts to pay $30 for that game. It looks like one of those $1.99 games.
If your most important aspect of a game is whiz-bang or eyecandy rather than gameplay or depth....you're right. If you enjoy the game itself, Rimworld is pretty damned amazing. $30 seems steep, but it's worth it. I'd say the sweet spot for the title is $19.99. At that pricepoint it is a steal.

Valve is so supposed to do their due diligence by going in and revoking those keys that have been reported as stolen. This is almost entirely Valve not doing their jobs.

Is anyone really surprised about this? Valve barley does anything but collect money and could give a rats ass about supporting us customers.
(rolling eyes) Typical half-baked Darks foot stomping. For someone that claims to be so 'in the know' when it comes to devs and business, you don't even understand what a chargeback from a CC company entails.

It is also a proof that all you need is a quality product to be successful. This game cost 30 bucks from beginning, was never on sale or Steam - which some say is the only way to make it in the indie world. Not true, since they shifted ~100K copies just through little exposure they had after Kickstarter.
I think Tynan has created a great product...and was lucky that he released it during a time that he could get amazing exposure through streamers on Twitch. Cohh Carnage has streamed this game off and on over the past couple years... It is a whole new model on marketing and grass roots approaches...

This is a really fun indie title. Glad to see it finally make it to Steam.

I dunno how many games out there allow you to leverage a Sociopath into a medical field....and then use him to harvest organs from prisoners to heal other colonists.

Phffft. I hope they go bankrupt. Releasing OMD2 was an insult to everyone that bought OMD. This is even worse. The first two games should have had all the content under a single title.

I was disappointed that they tried to keep the word association game positive. I really had to dig to find something positive to check about Razer, Xbox, and Microsoft.

Thanks for such a great site, Blue.

Earlier this year I ran across an old text document that had a long list of URLs including Blues. It was dated around 2000-2002.

I really wanted to get upset too at Valve for their part in this. But then I realized, you know what, their part in this really is no different than collectible trading cards kids have been buying for decades. And I'm sure there were even kids who gambled with them.
Exactly. Anyone that ever collected baseball cards as a kid was doing the exact same thing. The outrage in this thread directed toward Gabe/Valve is just the same laughable bullshit that comes up in any thread that involves them.
