You still need to activate the commentary by 'using' thin air when a prompt pops up in the corner - so it's basically nodeular (that's a word). Once it starts you can't stop it, which made me worry about those hostages as their lives tick tick ticks away.

I think it comes down to whether you see these as fixes or additions. If these are fixes, they should be in a free patch. In my view, these are additions - the boss fights were a valid criticism of the game design and development but they worked.

I didn't have any problems with the AI and I don't know what's changed. Perhaps they are fixes, in which case they should be free, but even then the original shipped product clearly wasn't deeply flawed in that regard.

Even if a lot of those copies were at $5 or $10, that's still a lot of cash. Good for them, they deserve it.

Also, Witcher 3 looks amazing.

That looks amazing, like Oblivion for adults. They claim (1:17) that "the concept of choice will take on new meaning". I dare say there's some exaggeration there, but unlike most studios I expect there's something behind that.

There was just so much walking in TW1, I liked what I saw but got bored too quickly. I'd forgotten I owned TW2 until now. Having recently given up on Dear Esther (before my W key gave up on me), I guess I've no more patience these days.

Why is it every time I go to an Ars Technia page, when I hit the back button (to come back here for example), Ars has loaded 6-7 times in my back button history?

I just got that by looking through their gallery - each picture acts like a new page in the history, although going back and forward doesn't change the picture on display.

You can't handle things that aren't absolutes, can you? People helping one another isn't socialism, it's society. The ACA isn't socialism and affordable healthcare isn't socialism.

If you and your ilk could understand this, maybe you'd be looking for affordable healthcare rather than wreaking any attempt at such at every possible opportunity even if it means wreaking the economy at the same time.

Rather than accept the decision of elected officials, the electorate and the SCOTUS, your boys piss and moan so much you (and you alone) shut down the government. No fucking wonder the ACA has teething problems (and as yet, nothing more), it's literally compromised by people who have the nerve to complain that the president won't compromise yet again (despite elected officials, electorate, SCOTUS backing him). And you're so stupid, you lap up their lies.

Speaking of lies, what did I deny?? What's that nonsense about?

The ACA is anything but affordable. Look at the data. Look at the averages. Are you obtuse on purpose or just really retarded?

You quoted me talking about teething problems and it being compromised by your idiots. You're being obtuse *and* retarded.

I wouldn't describe members as that normally but since he referred to somewhere having Muslim immigration as "infected shithole" (even if the friend he claimed to be quoting is real, he was quoted with no further comment as a reason not to visit London) I have zero interest in giving him any courtesy.

HAHAHAHAHA. HA! Welcome to the real world.

Oh God you kiddies crack me up. It will be fun watching you try to make a living after college.

How long do you have left in college, Beamer?

I'm not familiar with the Weekly Standard, let's see, top 5 headlines ... anti-democrat, anti-democrat, pro-republican, anti-democrat and anti-democrat. I can't comment on the specifics of the article (my health bills have always been $0.00) but in general, that's not the real world - that's one of those ideology affirming media sources I mentioned.

Reading sites like that (and I include left-wing equivalents) leaves you less informed than you were before visiting.

I talk to my dog, cat, and bunny because if they weren't around I would be talking to myself, and that's just crazy.

I use the same coffee, Blue. I just stick the bags in the recycling bin. I had no idea they even had such a program.

With the exception of #11 (to some extent) and #14 (what's that?), I do all of those with my cat. Cats are awesome. So are dogs, we've got one of those around here too but the cat's my li'l' fellow.

I know I'm only confirming my guilt even more here but I don't see anything wrong with talking to pets. They know my voice and understand the tone; I'm sure Quincy equates my baby talk to purring and Chester equated (until he went deaf) my babbling to canine grunting.

Having said that, I seem to recalling reading a theory that baby talk, with its exaggerated style, has evolved as a technique to help babies learn to communicate. If the real reason I baby-talk to my cat is to teach him how to speak, then maybe I am just a little bit crazy.

Here's question that's out of the blue so this seems like the place to ask it: will SteamOS games run on any PC distribution of Linux? I don't know if Valve have made this public yet.

In general, it's a bit more expensive for people that are working with salary, aka people that can afford it, and cheaper for those that are not working with salaries, aka people that desperately need it and cannot afford it.

So you're basically confirming the point I've been making the whole time, that the people who earn a living should pay for those who refuse to. And you somehow think this is fair or logical.

You people make me fucking ill.

What illness causes the phrase "those that are not working with salaries" to turn into "those who refuse to [work]"? That sounds serious!

Valve only pull things from Steam if there's a clear case of mis-selling. A clearly unfinished game like Dark Matter, or a mis-sold game like War Z. Rightly or wrongly, Day One's bullshit wasn't to do with Steam so Valve are't getting involved.

I'd quite like shit like Day One to be taken off because by all appearances, it's not fit for sale. It's so buggy that Dark Matter is probably more complete, but Dark Matter is so very definite in it's incompleteness that Valve can't ignore it.

When did they add the Battlestar Galactica?

Lol, i totally didnt notice that! Good catch!

Such a shame that you cant command a capital ship directly. It kinda sucks that you give orders from some medium freighter/fighter hybrid to capital ships. Shouldnt it be the other way around?

All ahead full! FUCK YEAH! Man, I hope they mod some of that into the game at some point...

I've wondered about that. It certainly sounds bad-ass but in practice, is it not a bit tedious? When playing flight sims, flying a Boeing 747 is dull compared to flying a nimble little hobby aircraft. I can't remember specifics about the X series but I vaguely remember the same feeling. Once the HUR HULK SMASH novelty goes, it's just an awkward brute.

Their pilot-one-ship feature worried me a lot when I first heard about it but I'm somewhat sold on it now. I'll make up my mind when the game is out but they've convinced me to hear them out.

TotalBiscuit's job is his YouTube videos, I think it's fair to describe it as monetized and I don't think TB disputes that. He's giving the money from the original DOGI video and his response video to the EFF.
Sure, but that's his right. Do they think that reviewers are doing volunteer work? People can choose to review whatever they want, with or without the publisher's cooperation or blessing, and they're entitled to make money off that work without harassment or interference.

Absolutely. Describing TB's work as monetized is about the one correct thing WGS managed but this in no way justifies any of their actions, particularly as monetization is just the lie they told to attempt to justify their censorship of negative press.

Don't give him ideas!

That IRS thing stinks. Supposedly the reason was that tax dodgers were associating themselves with the TP precisely because auditing them would be awkward. That's possible but I'm really rather far from convinced.

That's very good to hear Blue.

Yosemite Sam, I must admit I missed your comment about Blue being the only person here to make this determination. Sorry about that. I can understand your reluctance to bring it up but it's a fair point.

My cat likes hugs and some times walks up to me, stands up and sort of hugs my leg. He's not looking for food or anything, he's just being affectionate. You can look at it as a selfish attempt to get attention but you can break any action by any animal (especially including us) down to ultimately selfish reasons.
