Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    You do know you can download it online right?
    wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere

    I have a harpoon ready to launch, don't try to escape! :x

    OK after poking around online I had no success, however I have a theory.

    If you bought the game and entered the code to upgrade your account, you could then download it from the account management page which has allowed people with active world of warcraft accounts but without the game installed on their machine to download the game all along as far as i know.

    Probably will eventually, but I don't think their servers could handle it at the moment.

    Yes despite making billions of dollars blizzard can neither find a company willing to host their files or host the files on their own for their rabid base. Despite EQ 1 offering that service almost 10 god damn years ago.

    Their servers still can't handle it at present. It's Blizzard, why would they spend more money when they don't need to?

    Blizzard sees everything as a choice between "Money" and "Even More Money."

    Fuck, I think you had to download the beta from like fileplanet or some shit.

    Edit: Correction, that was WAR, but still. Their Blizzard Downloader is a torrent client with a different GUI.

    Still they could always sell their expansion download to another company and make even more money since ad revenue alone for all the downloads would be worth it.

    You got really lucky and I doubt you had the severe emotional issues she did. If you actually believe your advice in that thread was good advice I take back my comment re: your insincerity, and replace it with one condemning your insensitivity to her situation.

    I think people are skeptical because she clearly needs a shelf to store all her issues.

    No, if you kept your mouth shut you'd be exercising sound judgment.

    I refuse to believe you're that stupid. That girl is confused and in a lot of pain, and you're being an ass.

    Yeah, because giant companies really care about their customers. I've heard Valve is going to hire hookers to give everyone who pre-ordered L4D a blowjob as their own personal way of saying thanks.

    Wait, what the fuck? It's a fucking company making a product for a consumer. They're not supposed to fucking love me, but if they make a game I want to play I will purchase it.

    People take this shit to weird extremes.

    Just because you get engaged doesn't mean you get married right away, I waited 3 years. I think having emotional stability from her fiancee while she undergoes treatment can work out for this woman. Honestly that you think my advice was a joke is more telling of you than it is of my advice.

    Gabe Newell told me so :(

    You love us don't you Gabe?

    Yes, Ludious. Valve will always love you.

    Oh that's wonderful news Gabe, when will Episode 3 be done Gabe?

    Soon, my child.

    In reality, people just really hate WoW and will take whatever stab they can at it.

    In reality there are people who do this with everything, but people who do it about WoW seem to be incredibly adamant that WoW funds Satan-worshiping terrorism.

    Absolutely nothing. All of the new content is even invisible to you until you reach level 70. You walk into one of the new areas and everyone is naked, swinging swords at the air.

    We found this news item - tucked away over at Gamespot - to be completely fascinating. Clearly we exaggerate the case in our comic, it's sort of what we do. But at the same time Gabriel and I are asking our parents and grandparents if it's even okay to "enjoy" their wars, this is a thought exercise on some completely other level.

    Do I think that charging for the new MechAssault content on Xbox Live is a good idea? No, but it's not because of the money. Five dollars, especially when it's going to happen automatically on my credit card, is a value so close to zero the two become indistinguishable for me. If I've decided that I want something, I will pay five dollars to get it. You can hardly say that they haven't made good on their promise to support the game after release, they've given away tons of stuff. However, I think that internally they need to decide what sorts of things rise to the level of "premium" content on a service that's already pay. I mean, what's in the new pack - new gametypes, and some maps? They've given that away before. And I've downloaded it. Also, at this point in the game's life cycle, do they want to release an elective update that will stratify the playerbase? Something to think about. When these "premium" updates devalue the experience for the rest of the players, I mean, theoretically that's something you'd want to avoid. So, what have we learned? Bring this up at your next meeting:

    # Realistically, premium or recurring-fee content should only encompass persistent-state games like MMORPGs, or features which have not been previously delivered for free.

    # These updates must be delivered in a such a way that they do not divide the base of players which every active game draws upon.

    I'm only trying to help.

    I've collected Gabe's post and all the additional information regarding our Child's Play Wishlist right over here. We'll have a banner up in the ad spot for it that runs right up to the end, but readers like yourself have already - before the list was even a day old - put up over eight thousand dollars in toys and donations. There's no other word for it but remarkable. I indulge in as much cynicism as anybody else, but when a bunch of people buy toys for extremely sick children you kinda have to work to find the bitterness in it. Really, the only thing I can see wrong with it is that it serves my local community - it serves a large area, but even at that. It's important to note that we think of this as "Phase One." Phase Two, which we are not prepared to deal with yet because it is extremely ambitious, involves the formation of a network that redistributes donated games and game systems for people to install locally. One step at a time, I guess. In the meantime, let's save Christmas!

    (CW)TB out.
