Perhaps the FCC delay is due to President Obama's Net neutrality statement put out today. It seems to me like the President is calling for the internet to be treated as a utility. If so, I could understand why the FCC would need more time for a rethink.

One thing I'm confused about is...does the FCC have the power to declare internet service providers as utility companies? or is that something that needs to be done via a bill passed through Congress?

I am uncertain of that myself. I *think* the FCC has the power to decree such a thing without legislation. Acording to the way it was set up in 1934, they have the power to declare an entity to be a common carrier. If I am right they can simply declare this of the Internet providers and that weould be that. Of course if they do, I would assume that legislators could in turn pass a law superceding the ruling by the FCC (checks and balances and all that), which then could be legally challenged and end up in the Supreme Court.

WW1 is a criminally under-studied period in gaming. Glad to see more studios approaching it now.

I would consider the Xbone for a media server (I'd have to ask around to see how it does for this purpose first), but I don't have an old console to trade in.

EDIT: Well I have a Nintendo Wii in my house but it's my daughter's and she uses it to play Rock Band and Wii-Fit.

This is pretty outrageous. This kind of shit makes you want to go back to retail cd's and DVD's. The only thing Valve should be doing is removing the songs from future purchases of the games - to do it retroactively is absolute BS. This is a good way to make people lose faith instantly in digital services like Steam.

There's always G2A.

That too, I also use nuuvem. Easy to get a game 30-40% off.

I use kinguin myself. Deep discounts and the key always works.

Everyone knows the real reason to be upset about it disappearing from Steam.

No chance of it being on a Steam sale-athon.

Uplay has sales all the time. And they'll likely increase with deeper discounts if they don't have to give anyone else a cut. All the major publishers will move away from Steam, it only makes sense. I'd do the same thing if I were in their shoes.

I am thinking eventually that will happen and Steam will essentially be an indie and small publisher games platform. I don't think that's a bad thing; quite the contrary.

If anything, it sounds like he might be saying that it IS going to be F2P.

We currently only have one F2P game and it has been out since 2009.

Which tells us what? That you are due for another?

"Thank you everyone for your patience. Enjoy the silence for a couple of days now. You have nothing to worry about. Promise. :)"

Which to me in developer speak is saying: "Trust me - you guys THINK you know what you want and don't want, but we know better. You haven't seen how awesome a F2P game from us can be!"

It's a bit annoying, but there were never any Steam functions anyway beyond the executable. I just wonder why Ubisoft is closing itself off from a massive market. It seems like they have more to lose from this move than gain.

"You’ll notice that both of these ships are from “new” manufacturers; that’s because the Star Citizen universe is expanding!

At a rate that equals the expansion of our real universe! And like our universe it will continue to expand until it reaches infinity!

16!?! That's great and all, and I was going to buy Witcher 3 anyway, but now I have no incentive to buy it early... more like in a year and a half after when all these DLCs are finally released. :|

^ this e-fuckin-xactly

Chances are the DLC's aren't going to add anything ground-breaking. I am buying this as soon as I finish The Witcher 2, which I just started.

The exit polls showed that among young people it was the economy that drove them to vote against the Dems. And it WAS a vote AGAINST the Dems, absolutely NOT a vote for Republicans. The economy overall is doing well, but the benefits are disproportionately being seen by the wealthy. By and large, peoples' personal economies suck - prices of things are going up but wages have stayed basically the same (adjusting for inflation) for a decade. Unemployment is down but the jobs being added do not come close to the ones lost as far as salary goes. The ironic thing is that the Republicans historically do little to fix any of this, so expect a landslide victory in the other direction in two years.

Or just acknowledging that you never built up a relationship and not having a stupid funeral with a stupid action button that no one will care about?


That would work but is that "troubling" as the editorial's author claims or is just a silly design decision?

Like Quiboid points out, it isn't saying "troubling" meaning disrespectful or anything, it just means that it's a bit concerning that video game developers are this lazy with their storytelling and think it's ok to try to force emotion with a stupid button press.

I didn't get that from the article - though admittedly I skimmed some of it - but that does make sense. I concede.

The Clean Air Act(s)? The EPA at large? The FDA? Do you think they've caused more problems than they've helped? They're gutted and less effective than they should be, but that's not because government cocks everything up, it's because we let corporations have too much influence over its governance.

That's just it. Big business and big money are running the show in Congress, and that can easily lead to legislation and regulation unfriendly to small business, the middle class, and society at large. So many people prefer gridlock.
