Hell, the integrity of gaming journalism, the few it had, is destroyed completely if this is true.

It had none. NONE. Anyone who believes the gaming journalism industry has even the slightest bit of professional integrity is sadly fooling him or herself.

The gaming journalists are essentially marketing peons. ALL OF THEM. Some of them may not realize it, but the site they work for is just a bunch of marketing shills.

This shit has the potential of shaking up a lot of foundations badly though, to be honest, they needed to be shook.

It won't do shit other than maybe Kotaku firing Grayson, because everyone already knows there is no integrity to be found anywhere, so why kick over the anthill for something that's essentially nothing new anyways?

Admittedly, it's probably the first time I've heard of a female dev whoring herself out for better coverage, but in the end it's still just buying publicity, so eh.

Again, there is NO integrity in gaming journalism.


Oh, and Zoe Quinn is a fucking bitch, apparently.

i thought they already delayed this months ago.. i didnt know it changed

They said last month it'd be delayed until "the first or second week of September."

They need to be careful though. If they slip much further they're going to have to go up against AC, CoD, DA3 etc, and that'd be murder.

Edit: It's also a day after the director's cut of Shadowrun. Sigh.

I hope every artist tells the NFL to die in a fire with their horseshit. "Hey, wanna play at our gig? Pay us for it."

The Ginger Hammer is long overdue being chewed on by a deer.

"Apple takes user security and privacy very seriously," it said. "We have added China Telecom to our list of data centre providers to increase bandwidth and improve performance for our customers in mainland china. All data stored with our providers is encrypted. China Telecom does not have access to the content."

China Telecom may not. I can guarantee that the Chinese government DOES have access.

Then again, that's really no different from having stuff here in the US and having the NSA see if they can find former girlfriends in it to stalk.

Knowing your neighbors is good for your health

So get on a social network that connects you to the guy living next to you! IT'S GREAT!

Rolleyes

It used to be you'd go over and talk to your neighbor, but it's apparently much better and healthier to just Friend them on a fucking social network.

It makes me feel cynical to suspect they may have been just hoping I wouldn't notice

There's nothing cynical about that, that's just the reality. AT&T and Verizon even go so far as to call it a "revenue source".

And why wouldn't they? It's not as if they get penalized beyond a mild "tsk tsk" if they get caught.

F2P and really high quality usually don't go hand in hand, especially when EA is involved...

We'll see what they come up with. They really need to branch out from the Crysis type gameplay anyway.

When I was 9, I think I spent a lot of time flat on my face after I'd fallen off my bike.

At age 9, Ryan Carmack made a game, and then put a grandma mode in it.

Hard to keep ignoring the Oculus, tbh.

I don't like the fact that Facebook has its paws on it any more than Notch, but it is what it is.

It's high speed if you consider 12mbps as high speed. It's also a promo price, regular price will be $100/month after the six month promo period ends. Not much of a bargain if you have any other broadband option at all.

I'd probably kill someone to get 12Mbps, so to me it's pretty sweet.

And satellite is always a last-ditch resort, because the ping makes playing any games simply impossible. But at least it's becoming a last-ditch resort that's somewhat interesting speed/cap wise.

Typically Microsoft:

in late 2012 and early 2013 when the first discussions started about the purchase and Nokia was the desirable object Ballmer and Bill Gates had been wanting to have for a decade…

2003: Hey, Nokia is awesome!

ten years pass

2013: Hey, remember how Nokia was awesome ten years ago? LET'S BUY THEM! What, it's currently a complete has-been in the mobile world? NEVER MIND BUY IT ANYWAY!

idiots.

2. Exede satellite Aug 18, 2014, 10:39 Creston
 
Without having read the article, let me guess. 10GB monthly cap?

Oh wow, 150GB. That'd almost be worth something, if it didn't come with satellite's usual BS. But hey, at least they've realized that offering high speeds with a stupidly low cap is fucking pointless.
