I think it's great move activision has been lacking on PC side development, with this move they are really strong on PC market and console market

I dunno really. Activision hasn't really gotten my fancy because it seems to make the same sort of mass-produced games that EA tends to make and that sucks. This is just my opinion though :p

Mass Prodution + Games = Massive Crap

 
Re: Blizzard/Activision merge!
Meh.  Never cared much for blizzard games anyway - they only really give a damn about the multiplayer market.  It will be sad to see them go under, which is exactly what they're going to do - be forced into consolization then sink - but only in principle to me.

I'm pretty sure I've seen several direct image links from HLP to several webcomics but hey...

You shouldn't directly link to someone else's image.

Activision has never been a producer of mass awesomeness in the sense Blizzard has occasionally been; though they had a time where they came close. However, neither have they been the indefatiguiable mediocrity that EA is. Overall they seem to hold themselves to a higher standard than EA has.

Blizzard, however, has recently dropped the ball with Warcraft 3 and WoW. Their recovery remains to be seen.

They've got more bandwidth than all FreeSpace related websites combined.

I'm going to laugh when someone replaces that image with the image of a decapitated animal.  :doubt:

Because they run their website and it has at least one ad on the page and thats "traffic" that your depriving them of advertising revenue.  As much of a rebel as anyone may be its still polite and improper to link directly to an image such as that without linking to the actual site.  Occasionally there may be extenuating circumstances where thats not necessary but in this case it is.

Would be nice if you changed it.

In retrospect, I'd think it as boring actually.
