I dunno, it's better than the ad that appears as a fake windows system message that your pc has errors and sends you to a place that seems to be hijackware.

I normally have ads disabled with a mix of adblock and donottrackme but I whitelisted maintankadin because I like this site.

Is it possible to report bad ads to begin with? Like I said, that one that is hijackware seems to cross a line.

I think the most amusing part of this for me is that someone is going all whistleblower on the fixes. Are people actually still betting on this stuff? I'd think the major impact would be that folks may not go see a match that they know they won't like the outcome of... but on the other hand it seems like fans that follow the stories are going to have a pretty good feel for who'll win a match anyway. And the show is what it's all about.

Ask Mr Robot failed to suggest any enchants for my wrists and feet after hitting optimized, so it just left them blank. :shock:

One of our raiders bought a beefy gaming laptop recently. He has never heard of Steam. He really only plays WoW. Got him to sign up for Steam last night. Trying to talk him into getting Far Cry 3 since it is pretty awesome. His complaint is that it costs $30. He's race changed multiple characters multiple times.

That's normal, I've spent probably a thousand euros on wow between race/faction changes, rafs, store and transfers, but I still cringe at spending 40 € for a PS2 :P

$30? Shouldn't it be half-price right now or something?

It is on sale normally for 33% off, its lowest sale price is 40% off, which it currently is at. So $24.

Hmm. Checked and it's at £11.99 over on this side right now (-40% sale).

Wonder if there's some anti-american pricing since Ubisoft is a dirty French company.

Usually games get sold in the UK on a same-price-as-US-with-a-different-symbol basis, so I'm not complaining.

The Steam Greenlight system makes me insane when I try to figure it out. From my reading it is for new developers and for publishers with no prior relationship with Steam/Valve to go to get community approval for Steam distribution.

Paranautical Activity had a Greenlight page before Adult Swim Games struck a publishing deal with the developers. Valve declined to distribute it on Steam since it has a Greenlight page and didn't want it to appear getting a publisher is a way to get around Greenlight, which is understandable. However Fist Puncher had a Greenlight page, was picked up by Adult Swim Games and was approved for Steam distribution.

The Marvel Heroes ARPG is the only game by that publisher/developer on Steam and it didn't go through Greenlight.

Almost 10 days without incidents!


What I find interesting is that their stock prices are actually still steadily rising (1 year and 6 month trend). I mean, say what you will about the frequency of failures (all different systems, with only a couple repeats in the battery, it's worth noting), but they seem to be playing the PR game rather well with these incidents, and how forthcoming they are about what they are doing to address the issues.
