30% makes sense when you're a big-time dev selling a big-time game, and steam makes sure your game is presented prominently in the store.

But when you're an indie little game and steam is nothing more than a distribution platform for you, 30% seems a little steep.

I don't understand. How are people STILL BUYING DayZ EVERY WEEK?!
Are they constantly getting banned for cheating and having to re-buy the game all the time or something?

So I don't get it. Does this mean ISPs now have to do deep inspection of all people's traffic to see if they happen to be downloading something illegally? Or how does this even work? I can't imagine something like this can hold up to the Canadian constitution.

And how does something like this even pass into law in a democratic country without any people having any say in it?

Ebert? Is that like Dilbert? I like Dilbert, but I miss his signature tie in the more recent comics.

I am still shocked that ALL OF STEAM is equal to one of League of Legends.


I am still shocked that SOME PEOPLE don't know what the word "concurrent" means.

Much like DNA, there's a reason why fingerprint evidence is rarely admitted in court.

Don't know why they don't want us to get excited, I'd LOVE a new Cossacks game. Why, I've just been replaying the old series from GoG just a few months ago!

And another thing. You say Regional Pricing should be illegal, but you are not considering the other side of this.

In the West, the minimal wage is what now, $10 or so? A simple calculation without any taxes puts that at $1,600 a month. A game that is $60 is just 3.75% of that person's income.

The last time I spoke with someone from eastern Europe, I think they said they make something like $100 a month. So a game that is $60 is freaking 60% of their income. There is no way they can afford that.

Why SHOULDN'T different regions have different prices based on the market and just damned simple economics? This is pretty basic for ANY kind of commerce.

And this wouldn't be a problem if people didn't abuse the system by buying low and then selling high. So they've now made that impossible.

And all the people I speak to up here keep telling me "Oh this can never happen in Canada" and "Oh but that's in the US, we are so different up here", etc etc. /shakes head. I think there's a problem here with the way the public sees their government in all of this.

I think Star Citizen is a bad thing to have happened to the gaming industry. They have shown to the entire world that you can sell virtual products that do not even exist yet at ridiculous prices simply by making a very thin promise.

Now you just wait until EA and Activision start using that strategy and buying games will truly go to shit the likes of which we never seen before. Forget pre-ordering games, you'll soon be pre-ordering a skin pack for an unreleased DLC weapon!

Sure, I know that... Catholics, Orthodox, Partestans, etc etc. But Christian is Christian. He is somehow trying to imply that he is not Christian?

I'm a bit confused. I didn't read the whole thing, but he starts off with "Jesus Loves You", and then says there's Aethiests and Christians who get in his face and cause him problems... which is the part that confuses me. Isn't he Christian, too? Or what is he talking about?

I dunno... I wasn't very impressed by D3 when I tried the demo way back when it first came out (thanks Blizz for a good old fashioned proper demo!). Has it changed much to warrant even a $20 price?

Haha, so after being worst company to work for in America for years and years in a row, looks like they managed to find SOMETHING to be "best" at and grabbed it with as much power as their greedy fat fingers let them.

EA has never been the worst place to work. (they were elected as the worst company from a customer perspective.) In fact, if anything, they've consistently ranked in the top... 100 I believe for "best places to work" for quite some time. And they are apparently excellent with regards to the whole inclusion/equality story.


I'm sure you're not forgetting about the whole EA Spouse incident many years ago, but despite EA's constant public displays of "good quality workplace", like that one time they did a big thing with the press showing how they have free top of the line gyms and stuff in the offices and all, that is all just lip service to the press, nothing else. Ask anybody that actually works there can tell you it hasn't really improved at all, ever. What good is a freaking gym when you're working 9-11 every day??

The only real difference is in sub-companies like EA Canada, where a personal friend of mine worked, and it was just an average tech company in Canada. But the majority of their offices down in the US still suffer all the exact same problems that came to light with EA Spouse. And it's not like it's only EA that has these problems, in fact it's an industry-wide problem, with many other big-name companies that act the same way or even worse than EA, but EA is the most prominent and most visible. I'm not sure now with Activision-Blizzard growing pretty strong, but EA might still be the top dog in the industry, and people take example from it. Wrong people, taking the wrong example. So it is a big problem when they don't address any industry-related issues but instead exacerbate them.
