    Yep, anyone can quote figures and pretend they mean something, opposites or anything. IIRC Avengers was protect, was the most pirated and the most profitable. So protection etc offer nothing to show...

    The whole CS GO (especially the latest update) has put me off Valve as a company completely. TF2 was bad enough, but CS Go takes it from pocket money to consumer manipulation.

    Actually, looks more like a perfect merge of HumbleBundle and Steam. The best of both (in GUI). That kind of negates the usual.

    You can steal from one person. But steal from the world, and your a...

    If you wish to recover any data on the HDD, then take it out, get a new one and then recover the data asap. Don't use it now.

    No idea what a DX12 has to do with a failing HDD. Priorities!!!

    Or expecting a doggy bag, and not being given one. I think a lot of people would be angry if in a take out asked "we only let you eat it here".

    Well, some of the adds are getting past my addblock (as their internal link/refferals I guess), and though I use adblock, it's only to prevent unusable internet pages.

    Basically I'll put on a...

    Those mentioning the "live" universe. Look at other games. they all do it without MMO like connections (if irrational, add RND, if rational add logic check :P ).

    It's rather a killer for me too. I get to control the game. Otherwise it's a job. I'm not paying a game publisher for them to then charge me to work for them. :P

    Any purchase with a random result is gambling. Any purchase with a random result where you can make a withdrawal is gambling in the eyes of the law.
