So long as it's better than DS2, I'll be a happy Souls fan.

Same here. I'm in Mountain Time, but the times displayed are Pacific Time.

@captain_felafel: It is, but I'm betting there's literally nobody in the office right now except for those few who had to begrudgingly come into the office today on Christmas to see if they can somehow manage the situation at hand just for the day. I'm sure by tomorrow we'll probably here something from them. Remind you it's still 4:21 pm December 25th, 2015 where steam hq is located, and most people around this time are either to drunk or in a food coma about now.

While you're most likely totally right, at this point this situation has gone to "Call EVERYONE and get them in here NOW" status, Christmas or not.

Yeah, there's absolutely no way to shrug off the liability of the user-base's personal information and funds.

A lot of people in this thread, and in similar threads on other major forums, are kind of shrugging this off as "Well, at least no one bought games with my account.", completely missing the fact that the information that was visible is extremely sensitive and more than enough to reverse-engineer into something substantially compromising. Nothing happened to my Steam account, but I'm terrified that my information might've been seen by some bored kid who's thinking about tracking me down and screwing with me "for the lolz".

It's infuriating that there has been zero communication from Valve about this. With the amount of information that was visible, it wouldn't be too difficult to social engineer that info to get something quite substantial out of this. What a mess.

The performance issues this game is causing people really seems like a YMMV type of a deal, which I suppose you can say about all PC games, but this one more than most in recent memory. I've been in a lot of Just Cause 3 performance threads over the last few days and there really doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for people's poor performance. My 980 Ti is running this game admirably at around 70-90 frames at max settings @1080p, while people with 980's and 970's, cards not all that worse than a 980 Ti, are struggling to keep a steady 40-50.

Xenoblade is going to be one of those games I get at launch and then put on the backburner to get back to later. The scope of this game is just far too large for playing right now, when I'm still playing Witcher 3 and Fallout 4.
