Wow. It must be the age of everyone dusting off their moldy IPs to see what money they can squeeze out of them.
Also known as the "Era of Sequels and Prequels."

Has there ever been a court case where such a "no class action" agreement for use has ever been upheld?

News Comments > GNU Guru: Linux Steam "Unethical"

First of all when Stallman says free he means free that you can do what you want with it. Also I'm dismayed of all the non squitors and ad hominems in this thread. Who cares if he eats stuff from his feat or if he's a hippy or his personal appearance. How are personal attacks in any relevent to his arguments? Arguments stand and fall on their own not on the person who is presenting them. Make an argument against his argument. Talking about his personality is irrelevent to the arguments being presented.

This is what I will do: I will present an argument against his. I understand that Stallman has an ideology and that which conflicts with it he find disagreeable. He takes an ideological stance. He wants to keep free software really free and ideologically pure. My idea of freedom is having the choice of software that is free and that which is not and choosing what you want to run. If you want to run only free software, that's fine, if you want to run only commercial sofware, that's fine too. If you want to run both, that's cool. That is more free than what he's saying. The freedom to run non free software!

As a side not, I'm on Windows because I have gotten used to it because that's the only PC platform I can really play games on. If more games would run on GNU/Linux natively (not WINE) I would not be running Windows.

If any of these dlc's/special editions/bonuses get released on PC, you can bet that they will be all bundled in a nice easy to download pirate package.

I'm interested to know what evidence and logic Gabe can offer for his statements about Windows 8.

I have no sympathy for Fish nor Microsoft. They are both the villains in this story. The victim are the people who paid.

This is a great example of why I have stopped buying Ubisoft games. I drop somewhere in the neighborhood of $120 on games a month... mostly on the latest and greatest stuff coming out. But Ubisoft could come out with something that was the gaming equivalent to the second coming of Christ, and I wouldn't blink.

Bullshit! Every single one of you DRM-scared pussies is gonna bend over for Watch Dawgs .
Sure, just as Prez said: Skidrow and Razor1911 are your friends.

Megatextures have saved PC gaming. Everyone is using megatextures. Problem with megatextures is that from afar things look wonderful, when you get up close thy look like the textures from a N64 game.

I'm sure sales tax is part of the story, it's s small part. It's mostly because Best Buy charges more for everything (even if you subtract tax) than Amazon. Boo-hoo we can't compete because of sales tax!

Linus was voicing frustration, no doubt. However the way he did is going to be perceived as unprofessional. It will make him and GNU/Linux look bad.

We're not talking about electro-chemical responses, but a free willed mind capable of understanding action and reaction. Ethics and morality.
Are you a mind dualist or an idealist? You think our sense of ethics and morality is independent of "electro chemicial responses?" You don't think that when you decide to help a stranger there is electrical chemical responses in your brain?

So I think your core understanding of this is all about is grounded in materialism and trapped in the same anti-human deception the world has bought into.
Why is materialism anti-human? It's a completely intellectually honest position. There is no compelling evidence for anything outside of materialism. Therefore, until there is evidence for non material anything, materialism is the reasonable position to hold. Do you understand how that works? It is reasonable to think Bigfoot does not exist UNTIL there is reasonable evidence that he does. The universe it what it is, and is not what it is not, and wishing it be another way does not make it so.


People are now composing their moral view against what animals do! LOL
Humans are animals. Our genes have been mapped, so have the genes of other animals and all life on earth is connected genetically. What other reasonable interpretation for this genetic commonality other than humans are animals? What exactly are you arguing against? Some things are in our nature, but we also have choices in matters on how we act toward each other ie ethics. Perhaps you think that only humans can act ethically or morally? If you do, you really should get acquainted with the literature on non human animal altruism. If altruism is moral, humans are not the only ones who have it!

I pretty much agree with you, but it is a website devoted to religious issues. Of, by and for Christians. So you can't be too surprised of his perspective. I clicked around on the site, this article really is quite moderate compared to what else is up there.
Agreed.

There's no question: we are facing a crisis. A number of men are shirking their responsibilities, finding fulfillment in trivial things, and abandoning crucial spiritual and academic pursuits.
A crisis? Really? Is this the kind of alarmist statements the authore is decrying when he goes on later in the article to say "Instead, I simply wish to provide in this article some clarity and nuance for a subject too often considered in an alarmist context, especially within the church." You contradict yourself. What is the evidence for this crysis? I think people (especially the "millenials" are abandoning religious (aka spiritual) pursuits because they realize that the spiritual isn't real. That it exists in the mind only. http://www.pewforum.org/Age/Religion-Among-the-Millennials.aspx

We Christians must be truthful about these things, but neither side right now is telling the whole story.
I love black and white binary thinking. There is only two sides to every story right? Come on, see some grey.

The guys goes on to complain about video game violence. And there is a ton of video game violence, I agree. He offers no actual evidence that video game violence is harmful other than to point to studies that link video games and violence. When he was in seminary they didn't teach him the difference between scientific research methodologies that are designed to test for causation and those designed to test for correlation. Correlation does not imply causation. Eating rice and having black hair is highly correlated. But eating rice does not cause black hair.

Also being a Christian, does he not realize that he celebrates the torture and death of a person on a Roman execution device? The very basis of the religion is violence. Has he not read his Bible? It's full of genocide and homicide. Does he not know Christian history? Lots and lots of violence. People who live in glass houses shouldn't cast stones, even little pebbles as in his soft sell attempt in that article.

I don't understand the unlocking mechanic. Do you have to pay gold or use xp to unlock all the new variants? Should I still unlock new weapons or wait for the patch?

Blue had a video here of a guy interviewing a gold farming bot master. You think they will be able to do much about that now that they have so many people motivated to farm because of their real money auction house?
