Rumor: Valve working on 'Steam Box' console standard with customizable controller, biometrics {Joystiq}

There are few technical problems with Origin but I imagine they'll be sorted out eventually. I just don't need another Steam client on my computer. This is facebook vs. google+ all over again.
Origin would be fine if it came out 5 years ago but if I have to choose between Steam and an inferior steam-wannabe, I'm gonna choose Steam any day of the week.

Blizzard still tinkering with Diablo 3 systems, highlights new changes {Joystiq}

Here's the thing though. The vast majority of people who will play Diablo 3 don't want to assign individual points to stats. What you find enjoyable, an average game will find to be a boring, needlessly complicated activity.
Sure, it's restricting your choices. In the same way as not being able to freely choose and modify every single stat on all the items is restricting. I'm sure some people (like you) would like that but that doesn't mean it's a good design decision. If you give the player too much choice, most people will end up making a whole lot of wrong choices and end up with a character that is not viable for later parts of the game, which is what happened to me when I first played D2. But more importantly, it's boring. Maybe not to you, and not to other hardcore Diablo fans. But you have to look at the bigger picture here.

Plus, it's not like there isn't enough customization in the game. In fact, things like the new talent system, runes, followers, artisans, etc. is customization at its finest.

Witcher 2 dev CD Project RED ceases legal action against pirates {Joystiq}

Jan 12th 2012 7:31PM @Copybass Ah jeez zombies
Ugh, drop the act. You pirate games. CD Projekt spoke out against pirates. Now you're hurt and you hate the company.
Am I assuming too much? In that case, feel free to deny everything.

Dec 27th 2011 6:31PM At first I was sad that Justin, Griffin and Chris left but then I found out that Luddy would be taking over Chris' duties and I immediately felt better. I think joystiq will be alright.

Infinity Ward issuing Modern Warfare 3 bans that last 5000 days {Joystiq}

Dec 14th 2011 2:40PM It feels to me like some sort of placeholder value that somebody put it and then totally forgot to change before the release.
- "How long should I make the ban duration?"
- "I don't know man, just make it something huge, like 5000! We'll figure it out later."
- "Herp derp"
