Thats a pretty serious complaint right there...

there is some sloppy programming in the startup script which does a remove of a certain path but does not check if the path is empty so yup that can delete your whole drive, at least the files to which your have rights

Well, when my expectations are now zero...

Rather than saying the original Watch Dogs under-delivered, he says they "over-achieved" in creating expectations for the series.

Wow, that's some awesome kool-aid...


PREORDER NOW!!!!!!!!

We promise we'll have an intern actually download the game and see if it runs installs(*) on Suzy's old Vostro 220 this time!

(*) Please don't make grandiose promises.

done, as I 100% trust you Creston !!!

Heading into the middle where it slumps a bit, but still an excellent start. Was really pleased to see it hit 400K last night...

700k (current final stretch) seems do able...


this is one of the few kickstarters where you know a good game will be delivered since both returns and specially berlin where great , I bet they can keep doing this for the next 10 years.

That idiot isn't going to get re-elected anyway, who cares what he says?

does not really mater, as soon as something bad happens governments take the opportunity to take a bit more of our privacy... that is the sad part, and there will be another sad event and more will be taken, its a never ending story of which we are the losers.

The entire country of North Korea is sitting on one class A network (16,777,216 addresses)

that made me chuckle, they probably have 16,777,000 addresses still free.

aparently all of the mail from the country goes through the single mothership URL.

the whole thing is setup as one big company network, explains why it was so easy to get them offline though

It amazes me that Uber is sued all over the world by now, yet it still keeps going, both in those countries and continues to expand in others, like its untouchable or something....

Was a documentary on dutch tv while ago about them and the other so called "sharing" services, was an eye opener for me. I knew of course about all the rules real cab drivers here need to abide cq pay for (passenger insurance and all that) and saw the point of unfair competition and the fact that if your in a accident as a passenger your screwed, but its gone far beyond people picking up others since they where going into that direction anyways, its a business for most these days which undercuts the "real" companies and since its not a job as in company hired an employee there are not taxes, pensions etc. etc... short term nice, long term bad. My take on it anyway.

Creston wrote on Dec 23, 2014, 11:02:
Just goes to show that the large, large, large majority of the game buying audience buys shit based off of hype, rather than actual game quality.

Which explains why Activision and their ilk spend 20 million developing a game, and 500 million marketing it. If they reversed it, few people would likely buy it.

Good job, general game audience.

Man Creston now you made me feel bad! I buy some good games too though, honest!

Around 13 million people have played divisive online first-person shooter Destiny since its launch in September, developer Bungie has revealed.

Yeah, I bought the game and got bored of it after two play sessions. Wonder how many have done the same.

not after 2 session, but once I hit the lvl cap and had to gain new levels in a way I could not be bothered to figure out (slacking I know !!) I sort of moved on. I did have fun till then but I guess not enough to have me figure that above out

The Sony hack may be a crime, but if it is the people that ignored IT security in a multi-billion $ company are the greatest criminals of them all. That's like parking your car in a car-lot where every car parked gets stolen, leaving it unlocked, hanging a sign in front that it is unlocked, and then complaining that your car got stolen.

Sony execs are massive incompetents that try to hide behind bullshit.

yes and no, if there was inside help at a high enough IT level then it's hard to keep everything closed. On the other hand its sort of funny to read about the documents leaked and how the whole movie industry is still living in the 80's

about the cancellation of the movie, I thought it was more caused by cinema's not daring to show it in the end so with no outlets left there is not much to be done ?
