why exactly does steam have to wait for the game to be mass produced and physically delivered to retail stores before flicking the unlock switch?
Posted 09:05am 24/1/10
Same reason they try to charge more for certain games at different regions.

So stores like EB don't cry their little bleeding hearts out about lost income.
Even though they wish to continue to over-charge which is the reason they lose out so much when steam undercuts them.

Would have thought there would be some law against them refusing to be competitive and manipulating the market like that though.

Unskippeble cut-scenes are so retarded. It is a no-brainer that ALL cut-scenes in a game have the option of skipping.
Posted 11:06pm 24/1/10
atleast they can patch in the ability to skip it
Posted 11:08pm 24/1/10
So how are people playing it already? Did it break street date? Or did you acquire it in a more illicit way? Not that I care, just, if its out somewhere, I wanna go buy it tomorrow.

My guess is they sailed the Dutch waters.
Posted 09:47am 25/1/10
Khel they would be playing the dirty pirated edition. I'm surprised it was out so soon, but I'm keen to purchase this game because it looks like a sure fire winner.

If you were a big fan of #1 then you will LOVE this one put it that way. It improves over the first one in many areas and falls flat on it's face in others

I loved the first game, the only thing that shit me to tears in ME1 was that Mako tank thing you had to drive around, it handled like pure ass.

ME2 is released Thursday yeah?
Posted 01:06pm 25/1/10
For those interested...

Some ME2 sex scenes of 3 people. Spoilers abound obviously. Tali ftw.

EDIT - Oh and the mako is gone. No more driving parts.

i've enjoyed what ive played of it, i do miss the mako, whilst it handled like shit it was still fun crusing around planets exploring shit with it.

i dont miss having to constantly search for better weapons and armour for my squad... just finding upgrades to weapons and armor is good enough and it allows me to focus more on storyline as im not getting caught up finding stuff from vendors.

Overall the game is alot better then the first one, though i can see some fans getting the shits with certain aspects.
