Microsoft reassures Xbox One owners over DRM rights




"Don't worry about your DRM rights. You'll have none, just like you didn't have any before."

I like how MS says "Oh, don't worry, you can always just go into your download history and redownload the game from there."

Okay. What if that history is wiped somehow? What if your box breaks and you get a new one? Seems to me like you're gonna be screwed.

The message, as always: Don't Trust Microsoft On ANYTHING.

I'm glad so many publishers take the time to port mobile games to the PC, because clearly that's what we want.

Like I'd said in yesterday's thread where this was originally posted, I don't use Snapchat because I don't want anyone to get any kind of ideas about me presumably using it to send pics to my wife's high school students.


Also, I've never used it, so I don't know, but is it really possible/that easy to mistake sending a picture to one person versus sending it to everyone on your snapchat list? In most applications, that's really not a simple mistake to make. So I'm going to guess he thought the girls would like seeing his dick, and when they didn't he quickly came up with the "it was a mistake!" excuse.

I'm confused. Why exactly did they put these passwords in to begin with? How is putting a password into something HELPING a Luddite (apparently we call them "less tech-savvy" now...) install a game?

Btw.. Beth blog is one of the only sites on this planet that forces me on the German site when I enter the English url. And not even VPN circumvents it. What this means is that 9 out of 10 links to bethblog.com do not actually work for me! ;/

This interview though, they completely translated to German, with no way to see the "real" interview. wtf is up with that.

Time to move, homie!

I'm personally waiting to get a 970 or 980 with 8gb ram (only the 4gb variety are available now), and then going completely crazy (but tastefully) with a ultimate modded skyrim play through. I've yet to try any of the big DLC's even. Looking forward to it.

Your VRAM makes little to no difference on Skyrim's stability. It's the engine itself which craps out with too many mods installed .(especially memory hungry ones.)

You'd see absolutely no difference with a 4GB or 8GB card.

I wonder if there will be a single person that will buy this game when it releases. It seems like every single person on the planet and their dog has already backed it.

I haven't backed yet, and neither have my two dogs. So that's three copies right there.
Yeah but you are not guaranteed to buy it when it comes out.
What if last minute they decide that the game can not be played offline?
Just sayin

That's a good point!

I feel differently. Joe was a fuckup who got whacked because he was a threat to the organization's stability and opsec. I was glad Joe was killed.

You heartless... gangster! Shakefist

I loved Mafia 2. I replayed it over and over so many times I lost count. I just really like the story, characters and environment - especially the 50s part. I was fine with it not being open like GTA.

I also hope they continue the story in 3 where 2 left off. I hope Vito's friend Joe didn't get whacked after all.

That really irritated me. I FULLY expected a DLC to take care of what happened to Joe. They really left players hanging with that, especially since Joe was one of those rare characters you actually gave a shit about.

Things I remember about Mafia II

- Pretty good story. (a bit cliche, but it's a gangster story, so eh.)
- Mediocre gunplay.
- Fucking Quicktime Event fistfights.
- Fantastic music (once the 50s kick in.)
- Gorgeous graphics. Gorgeous city. Gorgeous cars. Decent handling. Fantastic open world area.
- And literally nothing to do in it.

Fix the QTE shit (by dropping it), and put stuff to do in the city, and it'd be a game for the ages.

I really wouldn't put too much stock in the word of some low rent PC assembler.

I took the plunge last year and purchased an Origin PC (with many discounts) and I haven't been upset at all.

After 25+ years building PCs, there comes a time where you just want to piece together a system and have it work without fiddling, so I bit the bullet. I know it's a cardinal sin to purchase pre-builds, but in this case it was well worth it, and in the end I came out about 600-700 cheaper than if I were to piecemeal my own system together with the same hardware.

You did? How the heck did that happen?

I always think I'm going to have someone else build them, and it's NEVER worth it financially. It's always 300-400 bucks cheaper to get the parts.

Steam Machine dead, that is a pretty big fail, they get all hot and heavy about MS's Walled Garden(tm) and we need something better. Do a shit load of linux work, fumble around with a controller for forever, had a huge splash two years ago with at least 6 manufactures showing off their systems and nothing. Fail. Stick with Steam only, because really it's the only thing you are doing that gets released.

It doesn't say that the concept of Steam machines is dead, the name is just dead, and seems like it'll be replaced by something else.

It was painful reading those twitter meltdowns. How did baseball players get so stupid?

Human beings are stupid. Here's a story about a dude that meant to send a pic of his junk to his GF, and ended up sending it to his whole snapchat contact list, including the underage girls he coached. Honest mistake, but game over.

A buddy recently asked me if I had snapchat, because he wanted to send me some pics of his new home and that was the easiest way to do it. And I don't have snapchat, I stay far the hell away from it, because my wife teaches high school, and the mere association of those two things looks dodgy. It'd be really easy for someone to go "So, are you snapchatting your wife's students??!"

So why in God's name would you have underage girls on your snapchat contact list? That in and of itself screams "BAD!" to me.

Oh my God, the FCC is actually doing something useful. Of course, this is a small victory compared to the net neutrality shafting we'll get in the next two months, but hey, any victory against AT&T/Verizon and their miserable, you-fuckers-can't-die-quick-enough ilk is worth mentioning.

Edit: Based on the link below, I'm beginning to think Tom Wheeler has been Body Snatched...

Wheeler seemed to dismiss the "hybrid" Title II idea he floated several months ago and embrace Obama's more direct approach.

I'm... I'm speechless. If this is true, holy hell, I hope AT&T and Verizon and all those other fuckers fucking CHOKE on it.




By the 25/3 standard, roughly... what, 3% of America has broadband? FEEL THE POWER.

Take all that funding away from the fucking telcos and Verizon, who do NOTHING with it, and allow rural areas to provide their own fiber networks with that funding. That is the ONLY way we'll get rid of the horseshit digital divide that Big Corp has shafted America with.
