Secret court rubberstamps Big Brother's continued shredding of the Constitution. Anyone still think America is a democracy anymore?

We're a republic, not a democracy in the first place. And no. Mr transparent has been everything but so far.

Democracy has more meanings than "direct democracy." A democratic republic is a type of representative democracy.

Let's not forget Ashcroft, who was so bad he was actually rebuked by the FISA court.

Though it's funny that all the liberals back then who had issues with the patriot act all sound like crickets now that it's been continued under a liberal administration. Go figure.

NO. I am vocally angry about the patriot act, the abuse of the FISA court, and all of the rest of this shit, and so are most of the lefties I know.

Which is more likely, he says that smartphones will become hardcore platforms because he writes games for them, or he writes games for them because he believes this is the future? I think the later, or rather both.

That doesn't mean he's right. His central claim is that platforms like the PC have gone from casual to hardcore and his evidence for this is incredibly selective.

I don't think he understands the word hardcore, or the history of PC gaming, or anything.

I'm still trying to figure out why Holder hasn't been brought up on charges yet. Possibly the worse AG this country has ever had.

There's no doubt he's pretty bad, but we have had some awful AGs. Alberto Gonzales??

I don't care about multiplayer or competitive gaming, but I am looking forward to this one.

Yeah I REALLY hope the SP is not this twitchy...

I was kinda interested until I looked at this video. D:

Please stop. It's not even remotely witty and detracts from your otherwise valid argument.

I disagree. The arachnoid/crustacean-like imagery is an effective use of metaphor to describe Microsoft's behavior with this product. They are scuttling back to safety after overplaying their hand and being challenged. It's quite apt.


Wooop woop woop woop!

There's a cheap solution for the dishwasher problem, do them by hand. I've never had a dishwasher. I really don't understand the need for one unless you've got maybe 4+ people in your household.

I grew up with a dishwasher, but I haven't had one for the past... I dunno. Six years? I miss having one, every day.

That site is INCREDIBLY inaccurate, as you should expect from any site that tries to estimate total playtime. It says you should beat Skyrim in 31 hours, and GTA: San Andreas in 34, for fuck's sake! Averaging Steam users' playtime would be a much better metric to go by, than some third-party willy.

I have dozens upon dozens of games it says it couldn't find a number for, and so plugs in some bizarre "average time" of 10.84 hrs for a "main story" and 24.84 hrs for "completion" on every single one... That list includes Civilization IV and V, both of which I've played for hundreds of hours (so far), so how many other games would probably be more than 11/25 hours?

Overall pretty worthless except as another arbitrary metric to compare with others, like all of those "how much is my Steam library worth" or even "how many games haven't I played" measures.

It's a measure of how long it takes to beat the game, not how long can you spend running over pedestrians with no real purpose. Skyrim, GTA, and the Civs can easily be beaten in those amounts of time, with plenty of time for just screwing around.

I remember when I use to say that about Blizzard. How times have changed.

Funny that, I feel exactly the same way about Bioware, then EA got it's greedy little claws out.

When someone sells their private studio to EA/Bethesda/whomever, it means they don't really want to make games anymore. Bioware was already on a slide.

This game was hideous even when it was new. "Hasn't aged well" is a huge understatement.

5 gender moments. Oh lordy, you'd think it was him who got raped in the prison showers or something and was really upset because he didn't get a reacharound.
Yeah, how dare the person with the venue and audience relay anecdotes from people that don't.

"Due out in 2013 for PC, Mac, and Linux from Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital. "

So another game I won't be buying on GOG.

What makes you say that? The original is on there.


Probably saying that because GOG doesn't support Linux (yet).

More than MS right now? Yes. Sony game us an option - I could (and still can) go totally digital, or I can keep buying discs. MS told us "this is how it's going to be". Fuck that, and fuck them.

I get what you're saying, and I feel the same way. I'm just trying to remind myself as much as anyone that this is still rootkit Sony. This is removal-of-OtherOS Sony. This is removal-of-backwards-compatibility Sony. They are pretty good at removing features/breaking promises/shady dealings.

Holy damn. I don't know if I've ever seen such fast and dramatic capitulation to consumer demands from MS.
