    They should do it more often! It could boost PC and yes game sales and raise more interest in healthy PC assembling and upgrading. Not only on GPU cards!

    RAM kit coming for example with some Half life parts trilogy, I bet many of the younger ones haven't played it, or some older Crysis or Assasins Creed when buying some CPU or mother board combo whatever, it should have more accent so the buyer can count these prices together as premium.

    Its the gun lobby that blames violence on video games and wants elementary teachers packing assault rifles, so they are the sane ones?

    The only problem with these games deals is, every time they are announced, (like the AMD one) I have already played the games. I usually play games as soon as they're released so its no benefit to me. I think most gamers buy the big games on release.

    The only way it could really work is if they include games that havent been released yet. Even if its 6 months down the road, like a voucher for GTA V, it would be better than games that are months old. I know amd included bioshock infinite in one deal but most of them are old.

    BTW, gun control works, it did in Australia. We had 13 mass shootings in 15 years until 1996 when some nutter shot 35 people in Tasmania. Gun control was introduced 2 weeks later and there hasnt been a single mass shooting since 1996, thats 16 years so its pretty good evidence. Homicide by gun dropped 50% overnight.

    50% less gun homicides would mean 5000 lives saved a year in the US. Anyway no one is calling for the total banning of guns,(the americans love their guns more than anything including the safety of their children) just some sensible regulations about background checks and the types of weapons peope can own. Of course the gun manufacturing lobby (the NRA) will fight it so they can sell more guns to mexican drug cartels and US gangsters and not much will change. The US will continue to decline into selfishness,greed and civil violence, like mexico where thousands are being slaughtered every month.

    The mexico violence will eventually spill over to the US then after 10's of thousands have died from shootings they will say gee we better do something about it.

    Perhaps most but certainly not all. I have yet to purchase FC3, but I'm anxious to do so... I still have Skyrim and MP3 to get into; yes, I'm far behind! :laugh:

    Even the Steam version will just start up Uplay when you click it :twitch: Kinda sucks.

    But Far Cry 3 cost almost nothing now.. Remember its the standard version.. 20$/15€. So i would still buy Samsung 840 Pro :p

    So far, Ubi has just been an inconvenience to play FC3. I'm still trying to find out where the save games are, there aren't any good answers that I've come across yet.

    Yeah, Uplay is worse than Origin.. Impressive... :confused:

    I dont even play my EA games because of Origin. I pirated Dead Space 3 because i dont want to use that Origin shit, I would gladly pay if it was on Steam or standalone. I know lots of ppl that do the same. I think EA would earn more if they just went back to Steam.

    First off California started censoring games WAY before this new debate about the "evil gun lobby" started. Second you only had 7% gun ownership in Australia before the ban. We have over 50%. So "banning guns" is like trying to ban the rain. We banned drugs too. Great job that's done. Criminals don't care about background checks. News flash THEY DON'T FOLLOW THE LAW. Third Mexico has super strict anti-gun laws and 60,000 people are dead now. So does Chicago and all the super high crime areas in the US all have gun bans. Works great as you can see. China has gun bans also and the people are enslaved by its government. India also has super strict gun laws and that didn't stop the massive killing spree from a few years ago from about 6 guys that crossed the border. So before you start pointing your finger get your fact straight. I support guns BECAUSE I love my children. Ever lived under marshal law? No? I have so you can get off your high horse because I've seen a super power ignore its own people. A Mini-14 saved my life and a few others when cops were looting gas stations and the National Guard was still a week away.

    All your points are about banning guns and I already said "no one is calling for a total gun ban just some sensible regulations" but I'll answer a few of your points anyway. Personally, I think guns should be banned for most people unless you're a sports shooter or a farmer etc, but the US has a very unhealthy love of guns. High powered assault rifles and war type weapons with big magazines should be banned. At the very least, those types of weapons could be kept at shooting ranges for people who want to shoot them.

    Let people have a pistol for protection with strict regulations on who gets them.

    Having a gun ban in one state and free access in 2 or 3 neighbouring states obviously doesnt work. People just go across the border. Regulations need to be country wide. The current US regulations are a total joke. They are virtually non existant because of huge loopholes. Jim Bob cant buy his gun from walmart or a gun store because of background checks, no problem, Jim Bob can just go to a gun show or buy a gun off craigs list with no background check. So that regulation is totally useless.

    As is stands , any idiot can buy a high-powered war weapon in the US. The violence in Mexico is caused by easy access to US guns, drug consumption in the US and a corrupt police force that is working with gangsters and turning a blind eye to criminals.

    You cant force every criminal to stop using guns but with gun control but you can reduce the numbers drastically. When gun control is enacted, black market weapons become prohibitively expensive for all but the most wealthy criminals. When a pistol is $1500 on the black market, thats out of reach for most of your street punks. The kind of people who do the majority of robberies and carjackings. Crime figures drop dramatically. Guns are so cheap in the US that a teenage crim can buy a pistol with his pocket money.

    The idea that we need more armed people(like in schools) to protect us from the crazies just doesnt work. When Columbine happened those 2 idiots were shooting kids while the police were camped outside because they were too scared to go in. A crazy guy with an assault rifle can shoot 25 people before the good guy can pull his weapon out.

    I dont understand this US paranoia about tyranny. The US political system is setup so no one man can become a dictator. But if it was to happen, I dont see having guns would stop them. They would just turn off your electricity, water supply and food supply and most people would be at their mercy.

    I just find it unusual that gun lovers want to protect criminals rights to obtain guns legally and are against any kind of gun regulations. I dont understand how you can send your kids to school knowing that the worst criminal or crazy guy can buy any gun he wants from a gun show or private sale.

    Anyway, it might take some more time, it might take a school shooting every week before something is done. It seems like the land of the free, is the land of the scared and fearful.

    Still cannot believe people saying that after those numerous high-school shooting and stuff. I will NEVER and thats NEVER put my kid into a school and live daily with the fear of having him even threat by some bullies that can always use guns to resolve immature disputes, or worst. Most of civilized countries in the World from Europe to Asia have ban on guns and nobody is complaining and even people are pleased because of this. AUS needs to move on from modern Western times and follow the civilized path of the rest of the world.

    So banning a weapon that looks scary and is used in less then 1% of crimes is gonna deter crime? Also why is the violent murder rate LOWER in states that have relaxed gun regulation then in areas with HIGH gun regulation? Honestly you view the US from the BBC. I live here and I can honestly say you dunno WTF you are talking about. G'day sir.

    Yup. No one complains in China about the government. Not a peep.
