It's all kind of pointless. These are the shows and episodes you can already buy on DVD. What I really want is the stuff that's currently on TV. Day-of, day-after, week-after... That'd all be fine with me but this is three years. Who cares.

I'm the opposite. I don't start watching a series until there is minimum of 2 seasons completed and the outlook for the show finishing is very good. Unless it's a throwaway comedy with not a whole lot of over-arching plot - like Archer for example - then I may watch it.

I can easily wait a few years before I start watching Game of Thrones, since the likelihood of it getting finished before then is small since the book series isn't even completed.

It's been a while since some "journalist" dug this dead horse up. Polygon must be desperate for hits.

Probably the best argument Netflix has for getting the kind of regulation its seeking. How can AT&T be expected to treat the traffic content services fairly when they're offering competing services?

Of course the old, 'You can trust us, we'd never do that... by the way on a totally unrelated note where do I send this campaign contribution check?', argument works pretty well.

I agree. Any ISP must divest itself of any media content delivery. It's an inherent conflict of interest. The gov't needs to step in and make this happen.

Agreed. Of course corporate lobbyists lining the pockets of congressmen and congresswomen ensure regulation of this kind is basically impossible.

I linked my FB account with the Digital Shadow site and the "infiltrating target" percentage remained at 0% forever. I must be off the grid! Yay me! \o/

With it not being on Steam, it would pretty much be Game of the Year material for me to buy it. I think Origin is better than it used to be, but that only means it sucks less. And it is still owned and operated by EA, who suck.

I think I can take blame for some of that percentage (damn you steam sales). However I've put a nip in that habit...mostly...by stopping before I hit buy and asking myself to mentally picture when I'll actually get around to playing it.

I blame Prez. I mean, he owns the entire catalog, right?


But but, I play a lot of them! Okay, yeah, my percentage is pretty sad. Much worse than I thought. It's not my fault I have no time to play games!

It's been a while since we had a 200+ post thread. Can't you guys keep arguing a bit more?

I heard Chris Roberts is a gay-bashing Tea Partier who belongs to the Westboro Baptist Church!

You do what you need to do, but I'd rather our government not grow any more than it already has... It's not worth it just to relieve myself of some personal responsibility.

Well, this is just another example of industry cutting corners. If they won't do the right thing then they must be forced to do it. This situation with computer security gets worse by the day. There really needs to be a concerted effort both by government and industry to reign it in.

I lean most conservative when talking about big government vs. small government. An overly large behemoth of a federal government is at best unmanageable and ineffective and at worst oppressive and tyrranical (and frankly terrifies me to boot). That said, government regulation serves a lot of important purposes, and I have to agree with Cutter here. If the last few decades have shown us anything it's that even in capitalism relying solely on hope that businesses will act ethically and in the best interest of consumers is dangerous.

LOL The best part of this is the crowd reactions.

I thought so too! I love games, so I may be skirting dangerously close to being the guy in the proverbial glass house, but how much of a loser do you have to be to cheer in gleeful anticipation of a helmet animation?

My favorite quote from the bad quote generator:

“There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.”

—Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, 2007

He certainly made a career out of being wrong.

I didn't buy BF4 for the same reason: no bots for offline or coop vs. bots with a few buddes, and no mods. These don't respect me as a gamer, so they don't get my money.

This. A thousand times THIS!

The problem I see with F2P games is really the people that complain when they have to eventually spend some money. What on earth did you think was going on here? Did you think they just built these games to waste time? They are very obviously always going to have a hook that requires some monetary investment. Every game can't be as popular as LoL/DOTA2 with installed player bases in the millions that no longer care about the average freeloader. They will always and forever be initially designed around generating a constant revenue stream.

When I buy a "traditional" game (using the author's definition of traditional) I know that I am done paying for it once I have bought it. What bugs me most about F2P is that it usually isn't clear what your financial outlay is going to be. The term "nickel and diming" comes to mind. That, and that F2P almost HAS to be multiplayer for it to be succesful from the developer standpoint. I don't like multiplayer games. Right now the only F2P game that remotely interests me is Path of Exile.
