[it] converted many of my Matched and Uploaded tracks to Apple Music files, which, if re-downloaded, contain DRM.

Unbelievable. Why does Apple never earn the Worst Fucking Corporation award?

DEREK SMART!!!! RAEEEGGGG!!!

Actually, he says very true things. If I'd spent 5K on Star Citizen, I'd be getting really frikking worried about now.

Honestly, the best thing they could do is ditch the whole FPS / boarding part, and just focus on getting the SPACE part out of the door.

Well DUH.

Stop preordering shit.

Typically I would agree with you Creston, but WBIE and Rocksteady's track record was pretty damn good up till this point.

Wasn't the last Batman game also a piece of crap on the PC (at first, anyway?)

If no review code of PC versions is available until after launch, it means the publisher is just trying to steal pre-order money with a shitty port. And as long as everyone keeps preordering in order to get a single bonus mission (which lasts 7 minutes), they're going to keep pulling this shit. (Although I will grant that Steam refunds may eventually shift the tide on that attitude.)

I've heard everything from Samsung to Facebook to now Microsoft wants to buy AMD.

It actually makes incredibly good sense for MS to buy AMD. The savings on licensing fees alone would make the entire thing worth it in 2 to 3 years tops.

Compared to buying Skype or aQuantive, this is a no-brainer for them. AMD can essentially be had for peanuts right now.

With the Hulk Hogan trial case drawing closer, Gawker, and its affiliate Kotaku, may be soon bankrupted out of existence and not a single tear will be shed for these assholes.

Well, I'd miss Jalopnik...

Fuck you, FCC Republican. I think calling it a human right is going too far, but not a necessity? All your necessities require money, which requires a job (or being a trust-fund baby), and good luck getting a job in 2015 without having access to the internet.

Someone find how much money this cockwallet received from Comcast et al.

You may remember last year’s rewards program from Assassin’s Creed Unity.

"You know, it was the one where we allowed you to buy $99.99 worth of points, but only gave you a grand total of $57 to spend it on. Wasn't that fun?"

Close combat specialist and staggered formations aren't for nothing.

True, but you can't always stagger formations. That works fine out in the open, but in the middle of a mothership it's a lot harder to pull off, especially once you go into laser/plasma weaponry, which has a range longer than any hallway you find yourself in, so the staggering means nothing unless you leave your squad out of sight of one another, which is a quick way to get killed on Classic.

I've only lost maybe half a dozen soldiers to situations like the above (One time I lost a colonel to it, though and I just fucking screamed with anger), but it's still just really REALLY irritating. It'd be wonderful to get soldiers to respond sequentially rather than all at once (and it'd be bloody amazing to be able to specify who shoot shoot first, or, even more awe inducing, to specify who should shoot at what targets.)

Wasn't the op-ed about how Steam should just stop selling product for a week / month / whatever so the writer could deal with their backlog also on kotaku?

Is being a wanker a requirement to be a writer at that site?

Yes.

Someone should write an article called "Stop reading Kotaku."

Here, let me write it:

Stop reading Kotaku,
by Creston

Dear all,

Stop reading Kotaku.

Sincerely,

Creston.

It should also be mentioned that they've admitted the E3 trailer/gameplay demo is slightly rigged for cinematic flair and expediency. The snake man/woman wouldn't actually get to use the grab move on the triggering turn, for instance (which would've been tremendously annoying).

A significant change for overwatch, if I've understood correctly, is that shots in XCOM2 are taken in sequence rather than all at once. So in the current XCOM, if you have six squad members on overwatch who all see the same enemy moving, they'll all fire on that enemy even if the first guy kills it - basically wasting five overwatch shots.

Oh thank you thank you thank you. Overwatch waste is soooooooooooooo irritating.

Hey, a thin man! EAT SIX PLASMA RIFLES WORTH OF DEATH. Hey, two Crysalids! Uh-oh...

Based on the screenshot though, it seems Gunther got a new pair of cyber-pants.

He needed new pants, too much lemon-lime soda spilled on them.

I remember him angry at a vending machine saying "No. I wanted orange. It gave me lemon-lime."

You win the Quote of the Day award
