"Ultima? Wing Commander? Crusader? What are those?" I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the PC was not even considered when writing this article.

You guys know Wesp is not your usual game nerd, right?

My German's a lot rusty but doesn't that say he's a chemist? He must really love programming if he never wanted to ruin the love by making it a job.

They must like it a lot. Developers that get paid to make patches don't do it this well.

Perhaps it's an issue of neutrality, for example an advertiser might only agree to give them money if the article about them made them sound better or something.

That's another good point, forgot about that hehe. Kind of makes having any level cap at all rather moot.

Don't know what good a level 15 cap would do. Not sure you can actually get past level 7 in the tutorial zone.

Not to mention this mysterious control won't extend beyond our borders, but unfortunately the internet does. And yeah, if their plan to take control is to do it one farmhouse at a time, that doesn't sound like a great plan. Actually, one farmhouse at a time is kind of worrying. Where are all the crop circles and cow abductions? Farms. Either the government is using this as a pretense to gather surveillance on the aliens, or they're in league with them...

Of course they're gonna drag their feet. Telcos and cable companies can't make money hand over fist if they just turn around and spend it all on their infrastructure. Look at AT&T now and their trouble with the iPhone. Rather than spend all that big iPhone money on upgrading their infrastructure, they'd rather talk about changing to tiered pricing in an effort to milk more money out of them for the same setup. What's more likely to happen is people will leave AT&T even if it means giving up their iPhones but that will solve AT&T's infrastructure problems too.

Don't get too excited - by all accounts, even playing leisurely you'd only use it for 2 hours before you got a better ship. The humor in the preorder bonuses is that Best Buy's bonus pets are the only bonus you'd be guaranteed to still be using after the 2 hour mark, even if rarely. They say the Amazon Borg officer will remain useful throughout the entire game but I doubt it unless they plan on making that a microtransaction later.

To each his own. We've all taken the hype train right to the crash, or we wouldn't know why we'd never do that again. Besides, disappointed hope that costs $80 is a lot cheaper than lots of other kinds of disappointment.

Just 60,000? That's some weak bullshit. You can bet your ass if/when one drone gets hijacked and attacks a US installation or convoy one day, the military will have them all updated in a week just to try to cover it up.

I don't get why the service isn't free already. If I'm not mistaken, barring any renaming issues the process is entirely automated, is it not? If they fear a large increase of people losing items from it, maybe they could take an Everquest-like stance for their GMs, in which each GM had a flowchart script where every outcome was "Tough shit, it's your fault."

I do use Firefox, for the record. The redirection has only happened when trying to read comments here at Blue's News, nowhere else. I'm at a loss as to any cause, and I can't think of any other virus and malware scanners to try after having used so many heh. Only reputable ones, of course. I have HouseCall pounding away at it now, the last thing I could think of, but it's so damn slow it could be tomorrow before it's done.

While posting in Legal Briefs just now, I was once again redirected to another save-your-system website (this time SysDefence - Online Protection) which my antivirus blocked as an infected website. I've been doing malware and virus scans like crazy since the last time this happened so I'm all but 100% sure it's not being caused by something on my end. I suppose this website could be a false positive but I doubt it - websites like that are total scams anyway, they just try to infect your computer and then sell you something to fix it.

Everything about the movie industry disproves the "piracy is stealing all my profits" argument, including how this year they've made more money than any year ever. $10 billion.

As far as I'm concerned, and as far as the law is concerned if I'm not mistaken, Blizzard built the house and Blizzard can set the rules. Freedom of expression doesn't give someone the right to be a jackass. If your freedom of expression harasses others or incites panic, the police will make you stop. If you go into someone's place of business and start spouting racial slurs or insults at people there, the owner is either gonna call the police or have someone large throw you out on your ass. All people ever say is "freedom of speech" like those are the only three words that matter. Someone comes onto my property and starts insulting me, I'm calling the police. Someone comes onto my property and starts threatening me or my family, well, they'll walk again someday. Freedom of speech ends at the property line, real or virtual. You want in Blizzard's house, you abide by Blizzard's rules. You don't like Blizzard's rules, build your own house.
