You still need access to a botnet, though. You either build it yourself or buy access to an existing one.

Actually, with DNS amplification attacks, you don't need one. One fat neckbeard sitting in his parents' basement can use open DNS recursors to act as a botnet and take down a target faster than he can microwave a bag of Pizza Rolls.

As much as I love to bash EA, they can't be blamed for this one. There is a group of miscreant basement-dwellers running attacks on BF4 servers hosted by NFO, one of the main game hosters. I won't link to their Twitter so I don't contribute to their attention seeking.

Damn, only Nvidia support for now. I was hoping to install this on my HTPC but it just uses the built-in Intel graphics. Oh well, it will probably be more stable by the time they add it anyway.

dude you don't even have to worry about helicopters in the normal game... you fly around and all you hear is "BEEP BEEP BEEP, INCOMING MISSILE BRAH"

*BETTER USE MY FLARES*

"BEEP BEEEEP BEEP, SORRY HERE IS ANOTHER MISSILE BRAH"

FUUUUUUUUUU

The only way around that is to have a buddy in an open seat constantly repairing. Oh, you want to use an attack heli? Too bad!

Come on Blue, linking to Infowars? Really? Might as well link to Free Republic and Stormfront while you're at it.

One of the girls at my church awhile ago complained that she "was the only one in her class who didn't have an iPhone 5!" (she had to make do with a 4s.) I wanted to freaking smack her.

Nobody has ever been envious about another's possessions before in the history of mankind! Apple is so powerful that they managed to create an entirely new human emotion!

I'm so glad we have people like you to tell those idiots what's what. Let's all print out copies of this and hand them out in front of the local Apple Store.

Environmental nightmare aside that is the conspicuous consumption I suppose Apple could always include an American flag to burn with each new iPad. I'm sure Apple supporters would just love it!

I wasn't aware that Apple products were the only electronic products that contribute to environmental degradation, or that they were the only ones manufactured overseas. I guess all that news about new Apple products being assembled in the US is false?

Think of Apple Customers like this... they invested in the company, they made 10's of thousands of dollars off of that. In return they buy everything to continue to profit from their investment and sell word of mouth any chance they could to again help their investment. That is the best explanation I have for the phenomenon.

Makes sense. There's no possible way that Apple customers might simply prefer the products to the competition. The simplest explanation is always the wrong one.

It's funny how nerds can be so rational and logical about things, and then when it comes to pet topics like DRM or online privacy they throw it all out the window.

Guess what nerds? It's already like this now. If you write software that breaks the DRM built into Flash or Silverlight you will get in trouble. That ship sailed about 15 years ago. Yes it sucks that people pay for DRM but the free market that libertarian nerds love so much has decided that it's worth having around. Why keep it in annoying, insecure, inefficient plugins and not move it into the browser natively? Then all you nerds can actually watch Netflix on Linux! Oh right, nerds don't use Netflix because OH GOD DRM SAVE ME RICHARD STALLMAN

I've never heard of these "Worlds Online" guys so I looked them up. Check out their gallery, it looks like VRML plugins from 1998: http://www.worldsonline.com/featured-worlds.php

I'm getting stuck in the loading screen every time I try to join a server. I guess BF1942 will remain the last Battlefield game I've played regularly.

News Comments > Steam Machines Announced

Hey guys, hardcore PC gamer and Blue's News commenter here. For various reasons, I'm incapable of understanding the perspectives of others. Also, I have a huge sense of self-importance, even though my life's greatest achievement was being named Taco Bell #4853 Employee of the Month for June 2010. Due to these two things, and that I don't have a use case for Steam OS, I feel correct in making the blanket statement that Valve is wasting their time developing this. Since I have no idea how corporations delegate tasks and assign resources, I believe that this effort is taking development time away from a game that I want to play. Finally, because PC gaming is the only thing I actually enjoy in my pathetic farce of a life, I am absolutely livid about this.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post! Please note I have absolutely no interest in debating any of my positions.

I can't muster any sympathy for Monster who made a fortune selling overpriced cables to morons for years.

Not only that but their overzealous trademark "protection". Because, you know, I'm totally confusing a mini-golf course with a cable manufacturer all the time.
