    I will say this: they have previewed the UI for "how do we make character creation not totally overwhelming," and it's really, really well designed (acknowledging that there is NO way to make...

    Via your own link: "No court has ruled on the validity of EULAs generally; decisions are limited to particular provisions and terms." Which is what I was going for - absent a specific case on that...

    I know that here in the states, EULAs have never actually been tested in court as legally enforceable, and the software industry has really tried to keep that the case out of the fear the whole...

    Wait, really? That was all it took? Doesn't that, like, not jive with their marketing? The Steam Sale sure as hell doesn't say anything about selling subscriptions to games, it just says it's selling...

    It's only unethical if they aren't honest that that is what they are doing. When the KS launched, they weren't, but then were very clear about it well before the KS ended; I think everyone who backed...

    I realize such jokes are easy, but everything we know says Valve are making a big push on making video games again, with the caveat that all such titles will be VR.

    Anyway, I have a Surface Pro 4 and while I'm currently not needing to use it for gaming (it's really for travel and cafe-working and school) I will keep my eye on this thread!

    Pillars 2 had 33,613 backers to the first game's 73,986. And yet it raised more money ($4,407,598 vs. $3,986,929). I wonder what that's about.

    Yeah, I definitely didn't like the health system as much post-patch (I experienced it when playing the expansions). Not sure what was wrong with the original, unless they felt it was "too forgiving."

    Thanks for sharing. Not understanding what I was getting into, I chose NOT to be informed when The Jig Was Up. Yikes.
