    Valve didn't "ban" Hatred. Steam is a privately-held store, and Steam's managers simply declined to stock the game on Steam's virtual shelves. Referring to this as a "ban" locates the ethical (if not...

    I'm not following why gamers are to be considered "hobbyists". At least in the US, videogames are a bigger industry than movies, and I'd certainly never consider moviegoers to be "hobbyists". If I...

    What really bugs me about the animal behavior isn't just the ubiquitous irritation during gameplay, but the fact that Ubi keeps putting some of the most endangered animals on Earth in these games,...

    I'd be shocked if it doesn't hit PC eventually. At this point in the market, "exclusive" almost always means nothing more than "timed exclusive"...or, even better (for us), has meaning only in...

    The eagles are irritating, but they can be pretty easily avoided. They always make the same noise before diving, and they won't attack if you're not in the open, so just train yourself to run under a...

    Now that I've spent a few dozen hours in the game, I'm happy (...) to report that the animal life is even more irritating than I thought at first.

    I'm still playing the game on Hard, but god...

    Totally bounced off State of Decay. Bad interface, ridiculously floaty controls, terrible writing and voice-acting...I was royally turned off within the first 15 minutes. I keep running into people...

    That's exactly it. Maybe it's down to having a lot of outdoor experience, but sheesh, I find that the constant animal aggression dramatically lessens the game's verisimilitude. "Immersion" is such a...

    I generally agree - Hard is perfectly pitched for the human opponents. But it compounds the animal problem. Especially the dogs are stupid irritating and take way too many bullets to put down. I've...

    Well, I don't want to oversell it - I wouldn't say the climbing is realistic. But I'm definitely enjoying it more than FC3's gameworld, and I can't really think of games that have done vertical...

    The biggest downside of getting a non-Steam copy is that Ubi doesn't host/serve files nearly as well as Valve. I finally got the game working - turns out that UPlay likes to give me corrupt...

    Any idea what type of key they provide? Will it work for a US Origin account? I don't see any notes re. this in the product listing.

    Going by all of the in-game recordings and conversations, it's pretty clear that the game doesn't intend to have anything to do with time travel. Rather, it's about the quantum superposition of...

    I replied yesterday, but the comment was auto-modded and never approved. Sorry about that.

    GfWL help plz

    I've almost never been able to start a new GfWL-enabled game without at least 30 minutes of bs, and I'm at the end of my rope with Batman: AC. Every time I buy a new GfWL game, I tell myself "Surely...

    Yes, I have no problems with that. I mean, it can be done well and done poorly, but I don't think there's anything inherently weak about it. It actually makes sense in terms of the gameworld. But...
