Don't get too excited, this only covers a very certain type of DRM. In particular the ruling covers a dongle used for authentication which was already cracked before it was used. This doesn't really change anything for gamers.

Then after the free year is up and the games downloaded and hacked they will appear on Torrent and there will be no way for OnLive to collect that second year subscription.

you don't download the games... that's the whole point of this service. still a total ripoff

On our road there is a 100-foot tall Western red cedar that died sometime last summer. It's right up against the road and the property it's on has been abandoned for almost two years. One of these winters it's going to fall in a windstorm and probably block this dead-end road but there's nothing anyone can do about it.

I'm not sure why the mag gets lambasted for the stupidity of internet voters.

Because they put the stupidity of internet voters in print and gave it the authority of a "Top 100" list.

Only 2 MB to go and the download has stalled. I hate BitTorrent.

Edit: It finished, then crashed while extracting. This ought to be fun...

This MTX thing is a piece of junk but it will work if you have the port forwarded (check options). It says it has UPnP but I suspect it doesn't work properly. I forwarded the port and now I'm downloading at 500 KB/s.

Batman, try the Team Mafiya Work mode with Blips set to Team. IMO it's the most fun setting in GTA4 multiplayer and there's usually a solid base of players.

Brain training games don't improve IQ? What will they tell us next, that "male enhancement" products don't do anything?

It's too bad nobody in Olympia has any balls to get their share from MS, Boeing, Weyerhauser, etc. There's a new rust belt developing in WA (moss belt?) and it's just going to get worse.

I preloaded it on Wednesday, went to play it on Thursday night and found out I had to preload it again. Screw this, not worth it on my piddly 2mbit connection.

Then in the next paragraph it's admitted that controlling sugary snacks is the resolution and really the only way games are involved is that some people snack at the same time.

but that's too complex to make a catchy headline. plus the sugar lobby is huge, way bigger than the video game lobby (the sugar lobby is the main reason the US still doesn't trade with Cuba)
