Looks like everyone in the NVIDIA campaign is affected. I'm trying to get to the bottom of it.

If the power grids were run like the gaming industry we'de all be living in the dark and cooking over scrounged deadwood.

Remember the good old days?

When to play a beta...you just went - downloaded it and played it.

I miss those days

Remember the good old days when you bought a released game on a disc?

You just went and isntalled it on your HDD and played the game whenever and for however long you liked?

I miss those days.

Or how about when you got an actual instruction manual with the game! I still have my Homeworld Game of the Year Edition and it came with a massive box, instruction manual AND a Prima strategy guide!

Yeah, though sometimes the instruction manuals were extremely vague and sometimes cryptic in itself. I can't remember what game specifically but it was one from the early 90s.

Yeah I long miss the days for manuals and tutorials.
There were a few games I picked up that were so damn complex I just left them....
I don't mind hard games but you gotta at least help us figure out how some of the functions work.
