I'm really torn on this.  I feel like I'm really not in to Borderlands at this point because I don't play it with anyone but that is pretty cheap.

 

Yea, this is how I felt, but for $4.80 of what is basically card money and a TF2 item, I could do a lot worse. It should provide a few hours of entertainment at least.

I know that you're "supposed" to play BL multiplayer but I found the first two entertaining enough for a go-through single player and assume TPS will be as well.

Has Desura given up the ghost for good? The site is now offline.
 
Indie Royale is still up and working, though.

It's hard to say. It's temporarily down sometimes and comes back up, if it stays like this for a few days I guess you'll know the answer.

i just dinged 30. uplay name is shrin3rr . so if could carry me to full yellows it'd be appreciated. kthxbye

Ha, I need yellows myself... They don't drop very often at all. Make sure you do the hard dailies. The challenging is something I skip... Though the one with the Riker's leader as the end boss is far easier than the rest. Hunt PvE in DZ01 and DZ02 also.

Pardon my ignorance, but why DZ01 and DZ02? Are they more likely to produce yellow drops?

Free Blockstorm if anyone doesn't own it yet

5 minute cooldown, not a guaranteed win, but worth it to keep trying cuz it's a fun game.

All DZ has a better chance than the campaign areas but the father you go north the better the chance... and not just drops but the chance to get your ass handed to you. Only go north in a party.

Also you can level your characters DZ rank quicker in the lower DZ areas... It's just more efficient.

If I had bought or traded for Hero Siege emoticons, I would be upset and therefore I can understand why the forum is giving an ear full to the developers.   Considering that there is market value with emoticons, having them removed and not usable any longer is not only a shitty move but I wonder about if there could be legal recourse? i.e. I bought the demonsheep emoticon, now cannot use it, what is the next move?

Besides the fact that was a completely dumbass thing for the Hero Siege dev to do, it's rather unnerving that Valve just lets developers delete emoticons (and I assume backgrounds and cards as well) that have already been published and people have paid for.

Thanks for the reply, but I was more meaning why DZ01 and DZ02 and not the higher level DZ areas (like if those lower level areas were known to drop yellow stuff). I have played about 25 hours so far, all with the same group which has helped a lot in the Dark Zone. It's good to have support when I decide to go rogue

I saw your post on the steam thread and agree.  I am concerned that Steam allowed this as I really believe that there should be recourse for those people that paid and then had their property deleted/inactivated.  While I believe that the developer is the party responsible for the action, I have issue that Steam allowed it and thus seems to further devalue customers in general.  For instance, why not cash everyone out that had the items being deleted or just stop further ones being created/distributed.  Is there really any need to inactivate the items to where they could not be utilized anymore.  What if you really liked using your demonsheep emoticon (which you paid for) and then could not use it anymore.  I could understand if the said item(s) were deemed offensive/discriminatory shortly after release, but again, customers should then be reimbursed.

 

Yes, I know we are just talking emoticons about this game, but it represents an abuse of power.  I am done with yammering about it here.  I just needed to vent.

It took me a few read-throughs to realize that he didn't delete them and replace them in a way that kept them in your collection. I couldn't figure out why everyone was so upset with emoticons that looked basically like the old ones.

 

This wouldn't be the first bone-headed move the developer has made. The game Hero Siege is fantastic and gets good support -- but he's definitely done things that have upset the player base. The good news is that those changes were usually reversed after feedback. I'm guessing that something will be done to make it right.

I don't know if he can this time. I guess you can only have one set of emoticons live so even if he rolls back to the old ones, if that is even doable, then people who bought the new ones would have those rendered useless.

Far Cry Primal seems to work quite well with GTX 970 @ 1920x1200. Pretty much smooth 60fps and looks nice. I remember reading complaints around release.

Not only that, this sets a dangerous precedent: What happens to backgrounds, emoticons, cards and badges for games that get delisted due to licensing issues? Will those get removed when a big company decides to yank their game because they won't want to pay the licensing anymore? (cough CODEMASTERS cough ACTIBLIZZARD cough)

Yep, concurring on this. It runs super slick for me even on the highest settings. I've been a little bored with the game, but technologically its pretty strong. Also on a 970.

As far as I can tell, nothing happens to marketplace items when a game gets delisted. The owner of the game would have to go in and separately delete those items as the Hero Siege developer did. However the fact that it is even to be able to be done is a huge oversight on Valve's part.
 
In the comments, he states that he wrote to Valve and asked them to change his emoticons and they told him the following:

 

*Edit: Apparently it's just a canned message you get when you try to modify an existing asset, as someone on his forum called him out on pretending he contacted Valve :-P but the intent is the same that they really don't want people messing around with existing market assets.
 

Unfortunately, once a trading card set has been published on the market, assets cannot be changed because doing so would cause serious issues for users who have already earned them. Apologies, and thank you for your understanding.

So clearly they understand that this is undesirable behavior toward the existing owners of those items for obvious reasons.

 

Now logic would dictate that if it's bad to change the existing items it's equally bad or worse to be able to delete them, but this is Valve we are talking about and they never quite think shit through before they create systems or make changes.

 

*Edit2: Apparently the old emoticons like this one are still on the market but if you buy them you can't use them and just waste your money.

 

Someone on the forums said he just bought one and got nothing in his inventory.

But they HAVE to be able to change the artwork. Icons and other artwork have to be changeable in case of copyright issues (like someone using a photo they don't have permission to use), or maybe they got new artwork and want to update it, and it won't affect anyone's existing inventory.

 

Hell, I REMEMBER seeing that some companies changed some emoticons a few times because they got new artwork.

 

This makes no sense and the dev is a goddamn moron.
