[Ukraine isn't a member of NATO, and President Obama isn't likely to volunteer for another war. But many of Ukraine's neighbors are NATO members, including Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Hungary. And so are the the Baltic states Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia further north and right on Russia's border.

If any of those countries come to Ukraine's aid and find themselves in a war with Russia, NATO is obliged to intervene.

Errr, not if said NATO member came to the Ukraine's aid without NATO approval, they don't. And since NATO is NOT going to vote to come to the Ukraine's aid unless it turns into an absolute slaughterhouse, the article seems really rather pointless.

Via PC Gamer :

The good news is that Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella has confirmed over Twitter that, as long as they're playing on legitimately purchased copies, users bypassing regional restrictions won't be banned.

That must gall the SHIT out of MS. Banning people who legitimately purchased a copy of a game is like the #1 favorite passtime over at Xbox central.

We live on a planet that's covered 70% by water. We have the means to turn said water into potable water. It's not cheap, and would require massive investments, but it IS doable.

However, that doesn't sound as interesting and scary as "OMG SOON WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE OF THIRST GUYZZ!"

Most of the states with drought issues are fortunately smart enough to already be implementing systems to make sure they will have the necessary water 20-30 years from now. Sadly, these same states seem to have a massive aversion against just outlawing shit like "watering your lawn".

I think their morality score is kind of interesting. It's like, yes, it's a fun game, and yes, if you're sensitive to sexual content/violence you should stay far, far away. Not sure where the hypocrisy is there. They're just acknowledging multiple demographics in their review.

Ssshhh, Christianity bashing is a firmly established belief on Bluesnews.

It seems like they built a "cloud" for the XBone without ever giving any real thought as to what it would be used for.

errr... Azure was around quite awhile before the Xbone showed up, and it's making Microsoft shitloads of money.

If you already have a perfectly valid cloud environment (at least until your moron administrators forget to renew the certificates again), why not link your Xbox environment to it? That just makes sense.

So, no, they didn't "build a cloud" for Xbone.

At the same time, all the shit that Microsoft pretends the cloud can do is just that: Shit. Horseshit to be more precise.

Were a small, tight-knit team, and Im proud to have come together with them over these last few years to create something that we think pushes the boundaries and is above all else fun.

I absolutely commend them for not just making another "modern shooter." Titanfall looks pretty fun, but I know I'd get bored with it way too quickly for me to fork over 60 bucks for a MP-only shooter.

yeah, those waiters not paying enough taxes on their $30k is really holding the country back...

It's not holding the country back, but if I have a job at McDonalds for 30K, I get taxed on 30K. Why does a restaurant worker get to dodge that?

What about Derek Smart who has made this type of game before. And released it. Many times. More recently than Chris Roberts as well?

I'm surprised one of the stretch goals isn't bringing Derek Smart on board.

That made me spit water all over my keyboard. Thanks

Also..microsofts shitty game servers are fucking dying over the launch load.

I edited my original post, it seems it's actually being hosted on EA servers. So big surprise that they don't fucking work.

you can pull your money out, just send a request for a refund and they honor it.


That is actually very, very commendable.

"For us, in the long run, as an industry, giving away content like that is just ... *makes retching motion* "

I fucking love it. I can just picture senior executive jackasses at Microsoft spontaneously self-combusting at the thought of having to give away something for free.

The Elder Scrolls Online - Ask Us Anything

Why a MMO?

MMO Money Greedy

I watched some footage of the beta last week and it looks like crap, graphically and game play. Maybe it's an MMO thing, but the video I was watching was a guy and 3 or 4 people doing a quest. There was a part where they had to talk to a guy in a jail, do something for him, then release him from jail. While they were doing the quest, other parties were doing the same quest, and they had to wait in line while other people were talking to the guy before they could talk to him.

Yep, apparently it's the same in the starter area. You need to gather up something to exit, and if someone has already grabbed it, you get to sit around and wait for it to spawn again!

Spawn camping! We haven't seen that since in fucking AGES. God this game looks terrible.

Will this have official servers? Or is it all peer hosted?

Half assed port, or developed with PC in mind?

It's official servers. It's all hosted on MS's CLOUD MAJICS! for the bone and the 360. I'm assuming the PC version will connect there as well. Edit: Apparently it's being hosted on EA's servers, so expect major fucking horseshit on launch. Why Respawn decided NOT to host on the Xbox servers (probably the best bit about the entire xbone environment) is a mystery for the ages.

As for the port thing, it's a game heavily, HEAVILY pushed by MS for their new console. Need you really ask what it was developed for?

I noticed today that all Titanfall reviews are embargoed until it goes on sale. I wonder if that's a sign that they're bracing for some disappointing reviews, or if that's common practice even with good games.

Typically that means that it really isn't as good as everyone's hyping it to be, and they're worried about pre-orders canceling.
