Man what is in the water at GDC this year. First Jaffe talking about how devs need to stop day one patches.

Now Cliff talking about pre-orders. I agree 100%. We need to find a new way to reward and merit sales of games. We don't run into a shortage of games anymore. Hell the last time I ever remember a "shortage" of games was Halo 2, even then I could find them in more then one store.

The F word on the front page of a video game website??

Neckbear2698d ago

I don't see the problem, myself.

He's not saying it towards an individual and is saying it how it is, so yes, the F word is on the front page and it's great. Sometimes, people need to grow up and realize that FUCK is just a word to show anger towards something.

I've always been against the censorship of words. Kind of goes against, well you know... The First Amendment

As long as they don't show naked people it's ok with me.

Game DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE.

Why wouldn't a game developer talk at a conference?

Reborn2698d ago

I wasn't wondering why their talking.

I was wondering why is it always them, and whats going on with the others.

the only time i preorder is when you get bonuses. ive had plenty of people tell me to preorder or ill miss out, only for me to come in at 4pm on the day of release and grab a 'limited edition' copy off the shelf.

living in australia means that games NEVER sell out, pretty much anywhere. if i go to JB and its not there, i just walk across the street to Kmart/Big W/Dick Smith and buy it. if, heaven forbid they dont have it, i go to EB and buy one of the 20+ copies they have left (after getting them to price match of course).
