    Before I had decided to quit playing Dark Souls, I was in the midst of "grinding" (I found the input lag unenjoyable so stopped altogether). What you said makes me curious though...if you're the...

    I went through the Facebook nonsense to get Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/05/14/free-steam-key-horror-game/) only to realize I already have it.

    I suppose the hope is GOG has learned from that (incredibly stupid) marketing stunt and never really intended to leave their users without their downloads.

    Realistically, Steam would be in a...

    I can see certain cases where this would be more fun than paintball (or airsoft), but they are few (assuming they actually deliver on the vest, etc). The problem then becomes whether they can both:...

    Many of the games bundled via Humble would be a good option, e.g. Bastion, Braid, FTL, Spacechem, Stealth Bastard, Toki Tori, Trine, Uplink.

    I'd also recommend getting an emulator or three and...

    For whatever it's worth, I definitely see vinraith's scenario played out a lot more than the opposite. Generally I see 3 camps: those who were around when Steam started; those around/showed up close...

    Bouncing between Guild Wars 2 and Morrowind, though The Secret World article is tempting me to install that. Bought it long ago because it was cheap and I had enough fun in the beta, but the beta was...

    Still 1000 or so beta keys on Alienware Arena for those that missed out.

    You can argue that 30% is perhaps too high, but they're still the ones providing the distribution, advertising, community and payment platforms. It might be easier to rationalize the cut as Valve...

    I mostly agree with your original assessment of the combat, but I think being a mage used to be easier. IIRC, they nerfed a lot of the crowd control spells that made it overpowered. Still, you do...

    No worries, I did the same thing on my initial read. I was just hoping you had found something I missed.

    Do you have a link to the license? I tried to find one to no avail (just their "Standard Disclaimer" which cribs the MIT license text, but is not in and of itself the MIT license) and was curious...

    I'd be less concerned about people pirating mods than people plagiarizing content for use in their mods, skins, etc. It's already happened in CSGO and DoTA 2.

    I just pay off my cards monthly. There's no interest, I get airline miles/cash back/etc, the dispute process is much simpler, and the short-term consequences of having a card stolen are much less...

    You'd be buying from the Australian store. If you also have a credit card with an address in Poland, you get the option of buying from both the Polish and Australian stores.

    It sounds like bot matches with some scripted elements tossed in to closer mimic scenes from the films. That part will be separate from the normal MP.

    Reading the KB article alms linked, the only people who will be affected by this are those trying to buy from a country's store in which they have no local payment option, e.g. trying to buy from the...

    The payment tie might have been unique to the CIS countries then; I don't recall the Scribblenauts trick. If everyone could just go to e.g. the RU store and buy games without a VPN, there would never...

    I reinstalled it the other day and haven't run into any technical issues. I think I'm enjoying it thus far, but haven't gotten too deep into it. It does have a GW2-ish vibe to it, but I definitely...

    I was under the (possibly mistaken) impression that you always needed payment information that matched the country and/or a VPN to be able to buy from a different country's store. If so, I wonder how...

    In the US at least, both D3 and RoS have been $15-20 on sale, so their prices aren't too out of line with the norm. With Blizzard, I wouldn't take the risk given the minimal savings, but you'll...

    Aside from the other mentioned bugs, having the cursor escape the screen is incredibly annoying. I have to reset the option after nearly every battle or "cutscene". I also wish I could hotkey...

    I agree completely, I was just trying to distinguish between actual reseller issues and UX issues (of which G2A has plenty, though Amazon is certainly no saint in that regard either)
