Forgive me, Shadow. It completely slipped my mind that the books without the pretty pictures in them confuse you. Gimme just a second and I'll go search for a picture of Captain Kirk putting his hand to his face and then, once I find it, I'll post it. That way, you can follow along just fine. 

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Be nice. I only noticed after it was pointed out myself.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

You have no idea how hard I'm trying to be nice. And, if I say so myself, I'm doing a pretty good job. At least I scratched the first response which came to mind.  Gimme some credit.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Hey, Jason, gonna re-vamp the ECA's logo? Can't nobody but those already indoctrinated in the way of the secret handshake figure out what that thing symbolizes.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

He's talking about this:

Is it immediately apparent to you that the logo is an "E", "C", and "a"?

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Think back to the very first time you saw it, Andrew. Honestly, was it immediately apparent to you back then?  

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

No, it wasn't and that was my point.  I don't think it's a bad logo but I feel it's a bit too clever for its own good.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

It'd be less confusing, I think, if the "a" was an "A." And if the "E" wasn't so often rendered in white. Against a white backgound, it ends up looking like two legs.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Welcome abord Mr. Anderson, im sure you'll be a great addition to the ECA.

MaskedPixelanteNevermind. Turns out when they said "the patch is now live", they meant "it's still in beta".12/19/2014 - 5:07pm

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am
ZippyDSMleeAnd I still spent 200$ in the last month on steam/GOG stuff sales get me nearly every time ><12/19/2014 - 10:55am

MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
E. Zachary KnightInfophile, Tha is why I buy only DRM-free games.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
MaskedPixelanteNordic is back on GOG for one weekend only. And at 85% off no less, which is kind of a slap in the face to people who paid more during the "NORDIC IS LEAVING FOREVER BUY NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE" sale, but whatever...12/19/2014 - 9:28am
InfophileRe PHX's link: This is one of the reasons the digital revolution isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's also the flip side where Sony can block access to games you've bought if they ban your account for unrelated reasons. All power is theirs.12/19/2014 - 8:52am
