Smoke detectors have an expiration date...?

How do I find out what that date is? Is it on the unit somewhere?

I doubt it'll be like Just Cause. They're looking to go for a more serious vibe with this.

But even so, the engine that runs Just Cause 2 is fucking phenomenal, and it had plenty of things to do, so where that's concerned this game should be fine.

Wouldn't 99.99999% of all games prohibit a modder charging for his/her mods to begin with?

That's the big question. Hell even Blizzard went after UI mod makers who were charging money.

Third time I'm answering this, lol... BETHESDA IS IN ON IT. Any other game that supports selling mods through the Workshop will also involve the developer/publisher consenting to it and taking a cut of the proceeds. They even get the final say on what the price will be and how much the modder receives, as per the the Revenue Sharing terms:

If your Contribution is distributed for a fee (whether in-Application or via the Steam Workshop), you may be entitled to receive a portion of the Adjusted Gross Revenue (as defined below) that is collected for the Contribution. The percentage of Adjusted Gross Revenue that you are entitled to receive will be determined by the developer/publisher of the Application associated with the Workshop to which you have submitted your Contribution (“Publisher”), and will be described on the applicable Workshop page.

The Publisher will have the ultimate discretion to determine the suggested retail price for your Contribution. In the case of Contributions distributed directly via the Steam Workshop, Valve and/or the Publisher may choose to offer you price categories from which you can choose a suggested retail price for your Contribution.

Thanks for digging that up.

Sorry to interrupt your circle jerk but you guys know that much of the time the promo material comes from the developer directly and that its largely clueless marketing people who are put in charge of releasing it, right? I think the Xbox One is a giant piece of shit but I doubt there was any conspiracy to deceive anyone here, just stupidity.

Not even marketoids are illiterate. Well, most of them aren't, anyway. The letters PC Footage and Xbox One Footage don't really look very much alike...

Off topic but is there ever going to be a more mobile friendly version of Blues news put out at some point? It's getting harder for me to view this site on my phone (I do 90% of my browsing on mobile these days as I commute) going from good mobile designed sites to this one is quite jarring.

Here's how to make it happen:

1) Request Blue make a mobile version of the site.
2) Click on one of the Amazon links on the side. (You do have ads enabled for Bluesnews, right?)
3) Buy ~ $1000000 worth of merchandise, so Blue gets (I'm purely guessing here) $10K kickback.
4a) Watch Blue build a mobile site with his newly found money.
or
4b) Watch Blue post about his glorious, brand-new, carbon fiber manstovia.

This looks like it could really be good. Cant ever go wrong with an RTS Total War War-hammer game.

I wish it had been a 40K game again though. I think the 40K universe is roughly 40000 times cooler than their generic ho-hum "high fantasy" universe.

"We apologize for deliberately lying to you and pretending that our underpowered Failbox, the all-in-one games and digital and (holy shit are we really making people type this shit out all the fucking time) system from Microsoft, could actually look like this and run at anything more than 2 fps.

Really, we're just lying. It's not confusion or anything on our part, it's just pure, blatant lies. If it wasn't for you eagle-eyed meddling fuckers, we'd have gotten away with it too.

Btw, Witcher 3 will run at 12 fps at 640i on our shitty box."

Serious question.
The ECU of the car (the brains I believe) is what they are talking about correct? And people are altering the car by reprogramming the ECU, or replacing it with a non-factory one correct? I'm all for tinkering and messing with things, but how much damage could be done with people messing them up? And I'm not talking about just the driver, I'm talking about other people out on the roads?

Not all that much in the sense that it would be dangerous or anything. You could potentially brick the ECU and your car simply wouldn't work, or you could badly affect your electronics to the point of them failing or something, but it's not as if tuning an ECU would suddenly cause your car to accelerate to 140mph and then slam on the brakes in the middle of rush hour. It either works or it doesn't. Realistically the worst thing you do to the ECU is fuck up the emissions control or economy.

This is just whining by piece of shit car manufacturers that are trying to wring every last fucking penny possible out of their customers.

I think that many of us have a password that we use for all of our throw-away accounts. I was referring to accounts that this person would not want someone else to get into. Would you use the same credentials on you email, bank, paypal, credit cards, and Steam accounts? That's what I'm talking about. At the very least, the email account that the other accounts are linked to should have a unique and complex password.

No, I agree, that would be beyond stupid. If someone has the same password on his bank account as they do on their Rockstar Social Club account, I don't even know what to tell that person, other than "Please never, ever touch a computer again."

Good points, NKD.

I think one of the easiest ways to combat this would be to ban anonymous calls to law enforcement. Anyone with a legitimate reason to call the police isn't going to want to do so anonymously. If you need the cops to show up at your house, you're not going to stay anonymous.

At the same time, police should stop acting on anonymous internet phone calls. If you genuinely only have an anonymized internet phone as your only way of calling, then call the police beforehand to let that number be known, so they know it's legit.

They may not be faster than old SATA drives for desktop users, but they're very likely quite a bit easier to install, and (hopefully) not needing two extra cables would be worth it alone.
