@Oldirtybearon Anyone else getting kinda freaked out at the idea of self aware individuals actually asking for their privacy to be invaded in the most fucking Orwellian of practices? Nobody? Nobody at all? Yes, me!

I bought the trilogy for PC and never got the controller to work well so I bought it again for the Xbox and I'm having a blast. The controller barely works on the PC and no power wheel. I was very disappointed.

I know this may sound crazy but I think Spelunky is almost perfect and GOTY 2012.

Almost funny, almost being the key word here.

Wait? You think its a pain to build and "maintain" a PC? Lol, Patrick...that's cute.

I know right. This isn't the 90's anymore, PC's and windows have come a looooong way. I NEVER have any trouble with my PC, in fact I even recently replaced my mainboard, processor, videocard and memory, all at the same time, booted the thing up and it just works (edit: without reinstalling windows I mean!). All you got to do is make sure it downloads and installs updates automatically and regularly (default setting) and you're good. I can't even remember the last time I played a game on PC that didn't 'just work' out of the box.

Try Fallout 3 GOTY on Steam, it doesn't work well with multicore. I had to read a shitload of forums to make it work.

No ads

If that was all I wanted, I'd just turn on adblockplus.

Never used an ad blocker before, I just installed and tried it. It's great! Thanks a lot.

No prob. Just be aware that if you care about giving certain sites, YouTubers, Twitch streamers, etc. ad revenue, you need to disable it on those sites. Example: If I unsubbed GB, I'd set an exception for the site. Because I Care

Of course. The newspaper I read online every day has gone nuts with ads, they are bigger, flashier and everywhere. It's very annoying and I would pay a monthly fee to get rid of those, but there isn't an option to do so. Well, thanks again.

@im_not_herbert: Perhaps because the articles in question are full of generalizations, just like the posts by people condemning the ones who are apathetic about it?

The articles on the subject by the press have incredibly little substance, and this is evidenced by the fact that the discussion has shifted from the original 'issues' to about how the gaming community is a bunch of bad people for not caring about what a small group of women said on Twitter. If a journalist wants to provide well researched pieces of journalism on specific instances where a woman was denied her rights because of her gender, then I am more than happy to jump on the bandwagon with my pitchfork. Until then, this is all just white noise, and nothing will happen.

Well said, sir.
