They have a pretty shitty tutorial, the game is an abomination to the franchise. Just a f2p grindfest with a MW name slapped on it. But hey if you want a big Atlas for free, there are ways to get the older, better games

I'm scared -- the site says if your antivirus says there's a problem, ignore it, which is a double flag warning sign.

Why the eff couldn't they sell this on Gog like normal people?

Do they have a tutorial yet? I was ready to pay hundreds to buy a big Atlas or whatever and screw it.

Posner is actually one of the best judges in the country.

Yeah, any guy who says that we'd be better off selling and buying children on the free market as opposed to the 'system' we have now, and that "the rule of law is an accidental and dispensable element of legal ideology," is a fucking FANTASTIC judge. He's a judge who actually doesn't give a shit about the actual LAW, he just likes debating ideological 'what-if' scenarios and how they could be handled.

He identifies as conservative but gets most decisions "right," meaning that he's pro abortion, pro same sex marriage, anti "war on drugs," etc.

And also thinks that animal cruelty really isn't that big of a deal (despite claiming that he's a cat person), and he "supported the creation of a law barring hyperlinks or paraphrasing of copyrighted material"

But his "obviously I'm exaggerating, but people who are concerned about privacy tend to be people with something to hide" seems to go the wrong way.

Oh what the fuck ever. "Obviously he's exaggerating", MY ASS. He has a history of saying the same fucking thing over and over and over again. To him, people are fucking subjects of the government, and the government should be able to do whatever the hell it pleases. Yeah, no, that's a GREAT fucking judge.

In any case, we'll see how he feels about snooping when Anonymous doxes him and releases all his information on the internet. Hearing him bleat about how his privacy has been violated will be extremely entertaining.


I'm not defending most of his decisions. By "best," I'm not saying he gets everything right.

And I'm certainly not defending this.

But he's written an enormous amount of "important" legal books for a reason. He's brilliant. He's approachable. And he's all over the place because, yes, he believes in doing what is right. Voter ID laws trashed by a guy that identifies as Republican. He hates copyright and patents on software. And he thinks animal cruelty is a big deal, he just thinks we need to be willing to test drugs on animals, claiming to be willing to sacrifice pigs and chimpanzees to save human lives from disease.

I am not saying I agree with him, just that the "he should never be near a courtroom again!" seems overkill on one issue for a man considered the most influential non-USSC judge of the 20th century.

One hopes a judge deciding Constiutional issues is aware of reasoning behind Constitional protections.

The reasons against warrantless search and seizure isn't because honest Americans have nothing to hide, only criminals do.

It's to stop government from filching through your stuff looking for violations to tag uppity people with.

As more and more of life shifts to digital, this ass basically wants to get rid of thay and let government filch through your stuff.

Government will abuse this -- that's why protections against it were put into the Constition.

So, clueless judge who should be nowhere near judging the Constitutionality of issues like this.

So what's the beef? That this implies Awesome Game 3 will be F2P, and thus depedent on micro transactions?

Or that, free or not, microtransactions will be P2Win, instead of just limited to vanity stuff with no major gameplay impact?

Is skirmish or whatever single player is, worth it alone? I hate multiplayer in games like this, and haven't been so sad at the announcement of the lack of a real single-player campaign since Demigod, which bombed otherwise, stupid devs. What a wasted game that was.

I used to play Spaceward Ho! and Pax Imperia, which had no campaign, but you moved system to system in galactic conquest against any number of AI which started in other parts of the galaxy. Is it like that?

but how many of those 7m register, play it once, and never go back?

If that's the case, they are counting me, and Smite is, too, because I played it for 2 hours during a beta last year.

I hope children in Seattle die insane and screaming in pain from rabies from rat bites from rats chowing down and multiplying on food garbage in compost piles.

Preferrably kids of these regulators.

Also, bonus for scientific ignorance whining about CO2 in the atmosphere while whining about carbon sequestration AKA burying food (or yard) waste in landfills to combat it under the false, leftover 1970s fraud that landfill space is limited.

Well, standing there grunting for half an hour before releasing your big shot, which the bad guy will shrug off, should be a fun gameplay experience.

I believe subs still work, it just has to be worth it. Until MMO's get out of their cookie cutter setup and make something amazing for us, yes subs won't work very well.

Oh and I believe the report and do not believe the corporate spin.

I am neither a kid nor a struggling college student. I have a job. $15/month doesn't even show up on my radar. I average more than that eating out 2x a day.

I cancelled this before the free month was over. The good:

- Huge world
- Quests everywhere
- That teleport bamf attack by that one class.

The bad:
-Ain't feeling it, man.
- Big, lost feeling
- Transient groups for outside quest bosses, i.e. people stand around until enough are there, group, kill it, disband, errrrryone turn in.

Oh God...no, please no.

I'm already having PTSD flashbacks of the 19087 wannabe "Wullvereen" knockoffs...

My fav was something like:

--xxxXXX Wolfferine XXXxxx---

who was a nondescript-looking defender.


I look forward to this, but loss of my superbase, which I had hundreds of hours of work in and over 4000 items placed, still royally pissed me off.

I am none too confidant NCSoft won't yank the IP after they shift to a new engine and the IP is integrated with City of Titans.

Am I supposed to re-build or re-play with another sword hanging over my head?

And still I will.

They should have gotten rid of bunny hopping and just set the max speed to that.

It was a trick taking advantage of poor code that made some kind of angle running/jumping faster than straight line (IIRC). In any case, it should never have existed and is just a grotesque irritation with no real gameplay value aside from the speed.

Hup hup hup hup hup hup everwhar hup hup hup hup hup.

"decided that what the series needed was to take all the female player characters, give them skimpier outfits and make them into J-pop stars."

Dang! I wish I had known that. I might have played it.

I was not looking forward at all to the original cast being in the new Star Wars movie, but I have to say, Mark Hamill looks like a total Jedi master with his full beard.

I checked it out -- Mark Hamill (62) is one year younger than Alec Guinness was when he first played Obi-Wan.


Hoooooly sheet.

Hello Star Citizen, are you not entertained!?

Even if this project fails I think I'll have gotten my $45 worth of backer pledge out of all the drama this has created.

Hehe, I'm not a backer and have definitely gotten my money's worth of drama!

Yeah, exiting as it first was, the more I see and hear, the less excited I become. I have a feeling this might end up as kind of a bust.

I think it is going to be a complete disappointment. First we were told "it's all procedurally generated!" Then, we heard "Well, ok, maybe not all of it. Animals are pre-existing assets." The last I heard was "So the systems are procedurally generated. Really, we mean it."

Seeing the screenshots in high res makes the game look fuzzy, washed out and extremely angular with mediocre graphics and I haven't seen any new shots released that change that.

Dang! I'm hoping not just for PC, but exposing the procedural-generation APIs for worlds and animals. It wold be fascinating to plug that into evolutionary algorithms.

EverQuest Landmark is playing around with being a souped-up Minecraft, and this would go so far beyond that, revolutionary, not just incremental.

News Comments > On the Legality of "Code Stripping"
2. Re: On the Legality of Jul 31, 2014, 13:50 KS
 
This just went to the Supreme Court last year in a case where a guy imported legally-purchased, non-pirate textbooks sold overseas much more cheaply, and resold them here for considerable profit, but still undercutting local prices.

The SC ruled "first sale doctrine" held, and copyright law did not forbid this action. I.e. once you bought a legitimate copy, you could re-sell it like any property.

The decision was 6-3, with mixed judges on both sides of it.
