This is a bullshit step in the correct direction. $54 means I'm only saving $6 by not pre-ordering at Best Buy or Game Stop. Some games maybe that's OK but usually there are map packs, collectibles, etc. that are incentive to pre-order and $6 just isn't enough savings for me to go against the brick and mortar stores.

Plus I'm old school in that I still have a good time going to the retailer, looking around, interacting with others who share the passion for gaming....it's fun to go shopping!

I think the sweet spot for me would be $15-20 or more in savings. I'd give the finger to retailers if I was able to get Dishonored or Resident Evil for $40

I didn't hear the N-word in his speech until it was audio manipulated to loop. Stop trying to make decent candidates look bad! Obama has screwed us and ANYONE would be better than him. Nobody is going to be perfect to anyone so I respect your opinions if you don't like this dude but as far as no birth control (someone mentioned above) it might help teach some of the young people out there that you DO have consequences for sex if you don't play it safe.

I know I'm probably close to alone on this one but it's kind of a touchy subject and I really do despise Obama and all his shenanigans.

Long story short I have a technical writing class and we're supposed to pretend we work for a company and we're writing a recommendation report about something. I picked a scenario of being in a smallish indie game developer and being assigned the task of looking into the various forms of DRM in games and how they work as far as preventing or reducing piracy, as well as how they are received on a fan level, critical level, and on a sales level.

Its kind of a big topic and I'm just getting started so I'm not sure exactly what questions to ask yet (it's due in 2 months) but I know DRM is a hot button issue and is, I believe, generally regarded poorly by gamers. I'm a console gamer myself so I don't pay it much mind other than those single use codes like they put in Saints Row 3 and Assassins Creed: Revelations.

Things that I'd like the community to think about and post for me here:

1)Have you ever found any type of DRM that you weren't infuriated by (Always on connection, online use codes, etc.)?

2) Is there a kind of DRM you wish someone would use (i.e. got a better idea)? .

3) Have you ever honestly NOT bought something because of DRM that you were planning to buy anyway?

4) Do you feel like it helps at all?

So there you go, that's what I'm looking for, or if you have any other information that might be helpful as I'm beginning my quest for the truth behind DRM on behalf of an imaginary boss I made up trying to get an A researching something I have a genuine interest in. THANKS BOMBERS you rule!

I loved TM2 but didn't play Black and the stuff I've seen for this one makes me want to play it. I just don't think I can justify a $60 game in a month or two when I still haven't played Gears 3, Dark Souls, or Alice:Madness Returns (all of which I am dying to play) and I have unfinished Skyrim, Saints 3, and Back to the Future

That free TM: Black is a might fine incentive though.....I may get convinced once reviews and stuff pops up since I work next to the mall and two GameStops

I had no problem with the story except I was surprised we didn't actually fight Strange dressed as Batman. If I recall that was a thing that happened in the comics, Strange dressing up as Batman and soiling his good name.

As for continuity, I found it to be balanced enough for me with an above average understanding of Bat-Lore while also not excluding dudes just looking for a great game to play.

Joker being dead is a HUGE sadness in my gamer heart! I know Hamill wanted out and that's fine but I do wish they wouldn't have killed him. This is a game changer! Whatever happens next will be totally different. I mean, where were they going to go next? Arkham Planet? Arkham State? Arkham Seaboard (oh, actually I kinda like that if we can drive the Batmobile or Batwing!)

Next game: I want me some Red Hood, League of Assassins with Damien as a boss, Man-Bat, and more Clayface! Might be cool to have some other cameos set up missions with other foes such as Superman being captured and Batman having to save him from Luthor maybe?

All in all a great game! At least as good as the original!

After all the mentions on IGN podcasts I just picked up Tech N9ne "Everready" and have been really liking that, I still switch it up in the afternoon commute for a mix disc of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes 80s songs, show tunes, and random other punk covers. This very moment my kids for some reason are listening to a dance class CD with Beyonce's "Halo" song which is what reminded me to check Giant Bomb. I was imagining this song playing over a ballet interpretation of a Halo game with Master Chief doing spins and leapswith a blaster while badly costumed Grunts and Elites get shot down each time he comes out of a spin or leap and above him is a woman in a Cortana costume spinning and kicking in a hula hoop suspended from the ceiling like in a Vegas show. This thread topic couldn't have appeared on the front page at any better a time.

I did not like Dead Rising, yet I have the expensive Zombrex Edition of Dead Rising 2. I suck at Rock Band yet I have nearly the entire run of Guitar Hero games. I have Bionic Commando, which I rented and hated....I don't recall buying it so I suspect it followed me back home!

Soooo many games I bought and forgot about until looking for a disc to trade in and it's like "Lost Odyssy? Where did you come from?".

Allow me a conspiracy theory moment, please.

I got on a mailing list, it's for like petitions and stuff and I usually ignore it, but a while back there was some bill being submitted which would make file sharing (torrents) not only illegal but also censor the internet. It was delayed to be reworded and it came up again recently. My thought is this: what if the government is hiring hackers or they have their own people hacking sites to make it a big deal and get support for bills like this to be passed through without any conflict? It would be a perfect way to start censoring the internet and making the country more China like while in the meantime China is on record (forget where) about hiring hackers to fight enemies or something like that. Maybe America is corrupt and we're heading for a dictatorship, maybe we've decided to fight fire with fire, or maybe I'm just watching too much X-Files right now but it was something to think about.

I have no idea why it happened because I did most of the side missions but got loyalty for everyone and talked to them at all possible opportunities. The thing is that I did suicide mission with Tali in vents, no problem especially with Garrus on 2nd team. Put Miranda on my biotic bubble with Samara and Grunt as my back up for killing stuff. I put Jacob in charge on this 2nd team. It was all good until we get to the end and Grunt dies during the cut scene...just carried away by the swarm! I was pissed because I don't know why he would die! Anyone know?

It gets worse, I go through the rest of the mission, kick the robot's ass, and on the way out watching the cut scene there's a dead body and it's Mordin....no idea how or why again!!!

WTF!? I don't know what I did wrong but can someone point me to what I need ot do better? All the FAQs seem to say is just upgrade your stuff be loyal...does this include upgrading weapons? I only got half way upgraded on sniper rifle but he never used it anyway...did he? HELP!
