Free games = awesome, and Bejeweled is ridiculously addicting.

Thank you, EA. This is much appreciated.

That's so goddamned insane. There must be a name for this mental illness from which some people suffer. Seriously, why not just switch X as well? If you're gonna "push" in a direction, why not at least be consistent with it?

It's a flight sim / space sim thing. Real pilots push up to go down, so do we.

Is the bone controller really that much better than the 360 controller?

Nope. It's more comfortable to hold but I find other things to be straight up regressions from the 360 controller.

I will happily ignore this controller then. Thanks.

To stir things up, here's my configuration as a Leftie:

Forward - KeyPad 8
Backward - KeyPad 5
Strafe Left - KeyPad 4
Strafe Right - KeyPad 6
Lean Left - KeyPad 7
Lean Right - KeyPad 9
Reload - KeyPad +
Use/Open - KeyPad Enter
Jump - Arrowkey Right
Crouch - Arrowkey Down
Prone - KeyPad 0
Various Items - KeyPad 1/2/3
Map, Journal and stuff - Ins/Home/PgUp/Del/End/PgDn
Fire - LMB
Alt Fire - RMB

Needless to say, nowadays almost any game restricts me from using *all* these keys, so it's usually a PITA to set up my lefthander keys for a new game.

You FILTHY HEATHEN! Go wash that poor keyboard RIGHT NOW!

And... Who runs the courts?


Technically not the Executive Branch. Whether that holds up in reality is to be debated, but there ARE judges who don't let the government just rampantly run roughshod over the law and the Constitution.

Why even bother making games for last gen consoles? What is the point?

150+ million potential customers? It's not that hard to see the point...

The game is being developed for 360 and PS3.

Not PS4 or XBone?

No, Rogue is a last-gen AC game. PC, PS4 and Failbone get AC Unity, the Paris one.

You say that as if from experience. Have you ever, uh, met Mr. Pachter?


Just to be clear, is a "cockbucket" underwear? An athletic cup? A thong? I'm trying not to ponder too much, but the verbage is curious...


A bucket is typically a container of, or a receptacle of, the item it's intended to hold. See also, bucket, water.

And yet on other crappy sites its common to see, "repent, repent, ISIS will take over the Earth, repent, terrorism gonna getcha, blah blah!" comments get upvoted by crazies. And then the following comments are a "social" online (i.e. useless) debate on "religion." With a few sprinkled in comments from non-crazies pointing out who actually funded/trained "the boogeymans terrorists."

o_O What the hell kinda sites do you hang out on???

My favorite part of their letter is:

"No group of authors as diverse or prominent as this has ever come together before in support of a single cause."

Yea... a cause that's about how much money you're making... real noble "cause". hehe.

And except for that petition from eight times as many people who are saying "Hey, stop sticking up for the old bullshit guard, and let Amazon, who has been a godsend to us, set fair prices." linked in that same article.

Or as another commenter excellently mentioned, the incredible group of authors who put their support behind Solzhenitsyn.

Whiny-ass pos writers. Oh noes, what about "all" the advances that publishers give to new writers? What, you mean the thousand fucking bucks that you'd be lucky to get, in exchange for a deal where you get 2% of the sale of every book? Fuck that noise. I've had several of those contracts offered to me, and every time I basically said "You're joking, right?"

The sooner those Big Five publishing houses die off, the fucking better. They're no better than the likes of EA. Just thousands of fucking parasites feeding off the work of a few.

This blog post pretty much tears those Authors United a new one:

And Authors United confirms that a group can indeed be less than the sum of its parts when it acts in such a blatantly stupid way. But, like any group of likeminded people bonded together by mutual ignorance, they can persuade the legacy media tools at the NYT and The Bookseller to run their biased propaganda without any counterpoints.

Fails all around.

Their recent letter almost isn't worth fisking. Really. It's so poorly done, such a flimsy, whiny argument, that a child could deconstruct it.

I was just going to link that. It's a great read, especially for those here who apparently still believe that Amazon is in the wrong.

Amazon has been a BLESSING for readers AND authors alike. These imbeciles who support the old "Shit on readers and shit on authors" publishing houses are fucking morons.


This wonderful person summarized the entire thing quite deliciously

AUTHORS UNITED: We’re really mad because you’re blocking sales of Hachette titles!

AMAZON: We’re not blocking sales of Hachette titles. Go buy them from our site right now.

AUTHORS UNITED: Well, our sales are down.

AMAZON: Then maybe some of you clowns should stop urging your readers to boycott us? (shrug)

AUTHORS UNITED: But you’re not stocking them in your warehouses! Or putting pre-order buttons on the pages!

AMAZON: We can’t be stocking or promising future sales of books from a supplier whose products we have no contract to sell. Business and customers and stuff? And by the way, the reason we don’t have a contract with this particular supplier is that they let the contract expire and refused to negotiate a new one.

AUTHORS UNITED: Okay, but we’re really mad because you’re blocking boycotting sanctioning Hachette titles!

AMAZON: Are not.

AUTHORS UNITED: Are too.

AMAZON: Whatevs.

AUTHORS UNITED: LITERATURE! CULTURE! BOOKS ARE NOT THINGS AND STUFF!

AMAZON: …

AUTHORS UNITED: AMAGA YOU ARE NOT DISCOUNTING OUR BOOKS!!!11!!one!

AMAZON: But your publisher is arguing that you authors can’t eat unless the prices are kept high, so…

AUTHORS UNITED: You can’t just go charging the price Hachette put on the cover, are you nuts? Nobody is going to buy books at that price! YOU OWE US DISCOUNTS! WE ARE ENTITLED TO DISCOUNTS! Also, we have never commented on the price of books.

AMAZON: But… isn’t complaining about discounts kind of like commenting on the price of books?

AUTHORS UNITED: Books are not consumer goods!

AMAZON: Then why are we discussing discounting and warehousing and selling them?

AUTHORS UNITED: We are prominent and important! We are PROMINENT and IMPORTANT! WE ARE PROMINENT! AND ALSO IMPORTANT!

AMAZON: Kk. We’re going back to work now.

NEW YORK TIMES REPORTER: No! Listen! They are prominent! Also important! WHALE MATH!!!!



(That last bit is referring to a NYT dipshit who is blatantly in Hachette's pockets, and has been writing Amazon hatchet (geddit?!) jobs in his editorial sections.)

That trailer makes it look like you stand still fighting around two non-moving Rock'm Sock'm Robots in a world designed to crumble the same way every time.

Which is probably unfair, but it's what the trailer shows.

It's the dipshits who raped the Atari name, so likely this had roughly 12 minutes of effort put into it, and it's just shoveled out there to try to make a quick buck.
