Brilliant. I'm going to tell them I'm recording them too.

Too lazy to hunt it down, but there's a video of a guy on youtube using this to dodge debt collectors. They call to bug him for money, and he says at the beginning that he's recording, and they just hang up.

In MN you can't record unless you tell them. Weird.

My state just requires one party to give consent. I can understand both sides, not sure which I prefer.

Nice to see that Square Enix can JOKE about making a new game yesterday, only to announce real layoffs today.

They're making a new Deus Ex game. Chillax.

lol, love it!

and I'm still going to buy the game

If it wasn't shoulder cam... I'd consider it... but I can't do shoulder cam games.

Shoulder cams are a pox on gaming. I can't do them either.

Too lazy to sift through fifty reviews. What do people have to say about the scripting? The gameplay trailers they showed made it seem almost as on-rails as something like Panzer Dragoon. Hopefully it's not actually like that.

I can't go back to this... it's just too painful.

I was having another go at it a few weeks ago. Made good progress up to blight town...

...and promptly stopped playing again.

If you really really hate Blighttown, you can do it in ten minutes and never go back. Well, if you start with the Master Key.

Go down to the New Londo ruins from Firelink, then take the elevator up to the Valley of the Drakes. This is where you need the key. From Valley of the Drakes there's a back way into Blighttown. It's relatively simple to follow these platforms down to the bottom--just follow the torches to the ladders. At the bottom of this, hang a left and follow the wall to get to the swamp bonfire. The boss is a quick sprint through the swamp from here.

If you don't want to fight them, you can avoid the rock throwers by running to the very far right of the swamp *then* crossing over to the big webbed up place. You can get to the boss without fighting anything but the little fire breathing bug things. Summon someone, and Quelaag is cake.

If walking slowly through the swamp is the thing you hate most, you can get the Rusted Iron Ring. Lets you move normally through the swamp and tar areas of the game.

Edit: Actually. You don't even need the master key. You can get to the Valley of the Drakes through Darkroot Basin, and then you can just sprint past the drakes. Easy to avoid.

And yet his democrat party is going balls to the wall for an internet sales tax. Some republicans too, but democrats back it 49 to 5.

Hypocrites United

Guess that will make every internet company wanna stay in the US...

Oh and see that Cyprus thing? Does it tell people to work hard and save money, or blow what you get on stupid shit and keep suckling the gov't teet?

Ya, a liberal world indeed...

It allows states to collect taxes from Internet retailers out of state, when made by people in their state. In most states, you are already supposed to be paying these taxes anyway, when you file your income tax.

It'll be a pain in the ass for the retailers to keep track of all of the different tax rates, but it's only for those that do more than $1M in sales annually.

I still want DS but can't justify paying more than $5 for it given it's supposedly such a shitty port.
It's not that bad. It is the best version of the game. Flat out. It performs the best and has the best graphics, especially if you get the DSfix mod.

They didn't add any PC-specific features, but they did include the new content and priced the game low to start.

I guess I did have it crash once on start-up, but that was GFWL shitting itself.

Seeing as this is really just a glorified expansion how about a low entry price point. I'm much more all over that than a CE.

What information do you have that suggests this won't be a full game with lots of content?

They didn't completely rewrite the engine for a same-generation console game, therefore clearly it's an expansion pack.

Every form of communications in China is censored and spied upon. The only news here is that Network World seems surprised that Skype is, too.

America has the NSA - and a dozen other intel agencies beyond the cops and feds - and a censor board too. China is simply more overt about it.

US government definitely spies. Example of censorship though?

U.S. Government thinks it might be time to change copyright law.

Is it just me, or does it sound like the person that wrote that article thinks copyright law isn't strict enough??

Feds: No Warrant Needed to Track Your Car With a GPS Device.

How the heck do you appeal a SCOTUS decision??

The Minuum Keyboard Project.

Sooooo Swype + T9 predictive text. Opposite direction from what is needed. The problem with on screen keyboards is definitely not that they're too precise.

I drive very aggressively - and I've taken advanced driving courses. I'm a superb driver because I have the right mindset and I'm always 100% focused on my driving - do not use phones, eat, etc. - and entirely situationally aware. A huge part of driving is the psychological aspect of it which most people will never master.

Did not need to look at who posted this.
