"Linus Torvalds Receives IEEE Computer Pioneer Award." He should receive Pr!ck of the Century Award. Arrogant SOB treats people like crap.

ZeniMax knows, in the worst case this is going to get settled out of court to avoid lengthy, costly lawyer fees, so they will make something out of it.

You are assuming that they have a case. I doubt Facebook/Oculus will settle, and if the counter-argument released today holds any water the onus to produce evidence is on ZeniMax. Fuckin litigous bastard cunts.
Let's not forget that SCOTUS is looking at forcing plaintiff payment of defense fees for frivolous cases.

When this first came out I thought maybe Carmack took some code with him - since there are no patents in dispute, the only other possibility is copyrighted code. Since Oculus claims there is no code, Zenimax is attempting to claim "ideas" that Carmack took with him. They have no chance winning that.

Was a lifelong Firefox user. Just switched to Chrome a month ago because of the CEO fiasco. When Google does something REALLY stupid, I'll switch back.

ChildChildren can swipe a screen but can't use toy building blocks, teachers warn.

Yeah, the rule is no screens before 3, then 30m per day after that. Not good for the kids.
Children can't plant seeds, can't pump water from a well, can't clean out a horse stable. We don't freak out over these lack of skills because those things are long gone. Youth today need to be trained on what they will need in the future, not the past. And they are. What required a Bachelors degree in Computer Science 25 years ago, kids are learning in 8th grade. Add in information at a touch through the internet and today's youth are several orders of magnitude smarter than middle age people.

I'm more concerned about their lack of faith... but that failure is on their parents.

This is going to be big. Maybe not right away, but someone has to take the first steps. Sure today, it is a clunky headset, tomorrow it could be as small as glasses, and the day after attached to your optic nerve.

I think VR and augmented reality are going to merge like computers, consoles and entertainment equipment did.

3DR had such promise. Now they are bottom feeders. Sad.

Talk about an authoritative fallacy. You guys are making a huge assumption that everyone that is banned is cheating. People have been banned for doing nothing wrong. If Activision does not give users the ability to have their ban reviewed, they are heading for a class action lawsuit.
[Edit]Turns out that the cache on the PS3/PS4s is causing erroneous bans.

Does ruining the game for others brings joy and happiness to the cheater?

Isn't it boring to just mow down players one after another?


1. Yes.
2. No.

Interesting
Cheating isn't any different than trolling. One gets a kick out of ruining a game, the other gets a kick out of ruining a topic.

Enh, there seems to be a lot of MS hate no matter what they do.
Because even when they listen, they don't. One perfect example is the Win 8.1 Start Button. Did they really think all users wanted was an F*ing button to go to Metro? They knew exactly what users wanted and still said "Screw you!".

has this been in the works for awhile? i'd like to think that if nothing else, Mantle at least spurred MS to get off their asses.
Yep! Embarrassing to MS that another API can bring in that much more performance.

Wouldn't it make sense to tie exclusivity to the number of consoles sold? If XBone fails, why should it be allowed to drag down games with it?

Talk about self serving. Not getting credit hurts integrity? How about gaining integrity in ways that matter to gamers! Like stop giving glowing reviews to games published by advertisers. Like asking tough questions when you talk to publishers/developers instead of sounding like you have a cup in your hand: "Please sir, may I have somemore."

Game journalist behave like game publishers can crush them. Game journalists need to behave like THEY can make or break games. Even if it is not true, that should be their approach.

A petition for a game developer I never heard of to be added to a marginal game, that runs on a platform no one owns.

These games are typically some of my favorite games, but for many... would anyone really miss it if Call of Duty 18 suddenly didn't have its idiotic 7 hour campaign?
Would anyone miss Call of Duty 18? These types of franchises are killing gaming.

C'mon guys. Everyone is trying to make a buck. It is the nature of business that the bigger you get, the more of a scumbag you become.
