The debate is really about who pays for — and who profits from — the increasingly elaborate infrastructure required to make the internet do something it was never designed to do in the first place: stream high-speed video.

The consumer pays for it and the broadband and content providers profit from it. There that was easy. I also assume the content providers are paying for some sort of connection/hosting as well. It sounds like broadband companies want an ever increasing revenue without having to invest in infrastructure, and who wouldn't, but that's just not a possibility.

Oh, it's a possibility. This kind of crap will be commonplace a maximum of two, three years from now. Nothing will stop it.

And of course it's ridiculous, because this idea that "Netflix is freeloading" is fucking insane. Netflix PAYS FUCKING BANDWITH FEES, and they are absolutely staggering. (AT&T always loves to bleat that Google is "riding our pipes for free", but if AT&T had to pay Google's bandwith bills, they'd likely go broke). Now, they (netflix) probably don't pay those bandwith fees directly to Verizon, but that's what peering agreements are for. And if there's a preponderence of bandwith going from Netflix's provider TO Verizon, Verizon should be charging Netflix's bandwith provider, NOT Netflix directly.

This is just companies creating a "new revenue stream." which you really should read as "stealing money from you." Verizon and its ilk are also the kind of companies that bill a % of their customers wrong each month, deliberately, and view it as a revenue source.

It'll fucking ruin the internet, but hey, as long as our cockbag senators and congressmen gets their palms greased, who cares, right?

Sure, they can come over. There's nothing that obligates you to actually, you know, let them in. And once you've told them they are trespassing, they have to get off your land or you can call the cops on them (on, in Texas, just fucking shoot 'em! YEEHAW!)

Also, this is just BS EULA language. Now that they've been called out on it, they'll quickly change it again tomorrow to something less retarded. I don't understand why companies still think they can get away with this kind of crap. There is ALWAYS someone who reads it.

Maybe they figure that if they go for "full frontal lobotomy retarded" first, and they then scale it down to "just retarded", people won't complain about the just retarded language as much as they would have had that been the default language to begin with. (Holy run-on sentence, Batman!)

Escape from Lion's Arch is quite fun. Anet wasn't kidding when they said Lion's Arch would get "Blowed Up!", as it has basically turned into Beirut.

It's also a lvl 80 zone, so finally something where you don't get downleveled all the time, and from what I've seen so far, it holds a very nice amount of players all fighting at the same time. You also get an absolute ton of loot. It's mostly just blues and greens which you salvage anyway, but you get a metric ton of it.

On the flipside, once you're in, it's very confusing and hectic (which is normal, I suppose, in a war zone,) and several times I'd have "escort yadda yadda" things pop up only to vanish again five seconds later. I did an "escort the children" group event last night, and those fucking kids just stood still for probably 20 minutes before they finally casually sauntered over to a waygate, only for the zone to 'end' right before they finally got there. :HOLYFUCKINGANGER:

And since it runs for 50 minutes every hour, you just spend 10 minutes standing outside the gate waiting for the damn thing to start, as 10 minutes really isn't enough time to go do something else. It'd have been better had it just run every 2 hours, like Steel Barbie did.

Uh-huh. I'll believe it when I see it. This is just more PC pandering while the 'next-gen' consoles work to get market share. Once that's done, all these supposed PC converts will all quickly suck console dick again.

oooh, future Doom beta access. Because id is going to absolutely rock the house now that their one remaining asset, Carmack, is also gone. Keep your eyes open for Doom, fellas!

Anyway, this looks alright, in that "When will it be on sale for 10 dollars?" kinda way.

(Though I have to say, I loved the German version of Boom Boom Boom Boom, and watching the nazis blow up Mount Rushmore actually kinda pissed me off )

I was seriously going into withdraw. Was very close to emailing Blue and asking if we were talking days, weeks, or what, but was trying to be nice and supportive.


Couldn't you have just rolled down your van's window and yelled across the street while Blue was shoveling? Drummer

Hahahahahaha. Jeraxle wins.

Love the fanboy comments too! So desperately trying to rationalize it. Lol!

It really is Stockholm Syndrome. They just can't admit to themselves that their console is a terrible piece of shit, so they go to the most ludicrous lengths, even defending Kinect, to justify having wasted $500.

Wow, that seems kinda... harsh? Guys make a very succesful game, and then because Ken Levine wants to make a smaller studio, everyone else gets sacked?

Thanks, Ken Levine?

Go buy Titanfall everyone! I'm positive EA has learned from its mistakes!

Everyone who still buys an EA game at launch deserves to be shafted up the ass by it.

My favourite anti-hero is actually Loghain, from Dragon Age 1. You know, the guy that decided a tactical retreat was in order, which ended in the death of King Cailen and gray warden Duncan. Phenomenal anti-hero in the prequel book to Origins.

As for Garrett? He's been showing constant signs of being "not evil". In D&D terms he'd be somewhere between Neutral and Chaotic Good, I think.

Sadly that's not all Loghain did. He then pretended the entire thing was the Grey Wardens' fault, declared them outlaws, sent assassins after them, and really really REALLY tried his very best to kill the few people left alive that could actually stop the Archdemon. He also assassinated a few of the nobles who wouldn't fall in line, had one's son tortured in his dungeons to persuade the father to join up, and finally he threatened civil war against disobedient nobles, all while the fucking Blight was at his doorstep.

There wasn't much 'hero' about him. He was just an asshole out for power.

here's what EA says about plans to test Respawn's mech shooter:

"We're not testing, really. It worked out great for SimCity and BF4, and we just pretend like neither one of those games had issues."

I dunno, call me weird, strange and perverted but Im thinking a crowd showing up at the front door of the powers-that-be with torches and pitchforks while trashing police cars and whatnot, and setting government buildings on fire would be much harder to ignore...


Yes, because burning down buildings and endangering innocent people who just happen to work at the government is a great way to get your point across! Set fire to every police station, then whine two weeks later that there's no police to help you when assholes set YOUR house on fire.

Two paths are suggested: upgrade PCs that can meet the Windows 8.1 specs, replace ones that can't

Go fuck yourself, Microsoft.

They say: "We’ve gotten used to killing zombies in video games over the years, but who were these zombies before they became infected? Is there still a human inside of them? In the ‘Humanity’ trailer, Techland aims to address the reality behind the zombie fiction, and present a deeper vision of what a zombie epidemic would mean for humankind. tries to get a piece of the Walking Dead pie."


They do make cool trailers, though.
