I was just about to buy Rogue Legacy on Humble Bundle at 75% off, but I believe I'll go for the higher discount on Steam instead.

I said "Oh - Rogue Legacy! Been meaning to buy that! Well, no better time than on a sale. What? I already own it? What is happening to me?!?"

Wow, I didn't even know of those allegations against Cosby.

I remember the rape case and kind of thought the woman making the allegations might be lying, but I never heard of the dozen or so other women who were supposedly going to testify that the same thing happened to them if the case ever went to trial. Now I don't know - she may have been telling the truth.

PC Gamer review is also up. They gave it an 87, but they were of course burdened by the fact they shilled DA2 into a 94, and have been paying for it ever since.

Yeah. I forgave them for their Crysis review that was in the 90's since I enjoyed it more than most others did (it would have been a respectable 80's-ish score in my mind), but they lost me with that execrable DA2 review. Taken by itself the game was a 65, maybe a 70 to my mind. Considered as a sequel to Origins it was about a 45 or 50 for me. I don't give Destructoid and Polygon the hits anymore - I'll see their numbers as an agregate score on Metacritic. If the reviews are generally positive I'll buy it at some point. Of course I would prefer it to be on Steam but Origin isn't too bad; certainly not bad enough to avoid playing a good game because of it.

I'm confused by your opposition to this LittleMe. It's clear you are against how corporate interests in government have led to anti-consumer monopolies - "Corporatism" as you are calling it. If the FCC does what the POTUS is advocating it would eliminate that from how the internet is run at least. I could see you being opposed to that if you held the view that as businesses internet providers have the right to charge those who use the most bandwidth more, but I'm not hearing that as your stance. Net Neutrality would essentially remove the ability for corporations to be the final arbiter of information on the internet, which based on what you have written seems it would be something you would support.

Breitbart has a proven pattern of deceit--documented, by, among others, Media Matters. No one can say the reverse, because it simply isn't true.

I don't really keep score honestly - I just have learned to fact-check everything nine ways to Sunday (that is a strange idiom isn't it?). Media Matters does its own spin to be sure, but I don't mind them.

What I find curious is how someone like my wife (a hardcore conservative) and myself (a moderate libertarian with the occasional right-leaning view) determine what is "bias". She will swear that Fox News and Newsmaxx "only report the news, no spin!" while USA Today and CNN are heavily biased to the left. I'm like 'WTF?!?!'

Of course I just nod politely and deftly change the subject because this woman can easily kill me in my sleep and make it look like an accident...

You should look it up. The Republicans have gotten so good at it, that there were elections where the Democratic candidate actually got more votes overall ... and still lost.

Can I get a link or three on that? I hadn't heard that before now. And I thought re-districting only benefitted the party in power (which in the Senate was the Democrats)?

I'm not the most knowledgeable guy on this issue either, but here are some numbers compiled by daily kos, which is a left wing website, meaning some will immediately dismiss the data out of hand, but whatever ...


I get what you are saying now. Here's a link that describes it well. As far as sources go, I'll read anything from Breibart to Media Matters and anything in between. I have a finely-honed BS detector that serves me pretty well.

I agree and disagree with different points Baldwin makes to varying degrees but on this point I believe he nails it:

@scottekaufman Anti-GG's sweeping accusations of "MISOGYNY!", etc. against a broad, bipartisan demographic was toxic & self-defeating.

I don't think the cultural war is over, just the part that specifically relates to GG.

The Oatmeal cartoonist must be pissed about last week's election to post that kind of garbage. That being said he has no clue on how the Internet is run as not all data is the same. The key words he is missing is 'paid peering.' Content providers like Netflix is taking up a lot of bandwidth and its costing ISPs a lot of money to keep up so Netflix should pay. Also, the Oatmeal claims Comcast is Cruz's buddies but in reality they're very close pals of Obama and the Democrats, see MSNBC.

I saw a list of everyone who took money from Comcast for their campaigns and it had an alarming number of Republicans and Democrats on it. Money knows no party. And yes, Ted Cruz was on that list. It is public knowledge since they need to disclose their donors. And I am not sure why you think the Oatmeal article is wrong - it basically lays out the facts - most importantly that Net Nuetrality has nothing to do with government regulation but instead simply states that all information passed over the intenet will be treated equally. You may not agree with net neutrality, but that doesn't make the facts wrong.

I can see this issue eventually making its way to the Supreme Court. In the event that it did, would the Supreme Court ruling be the final word on the matter? While I do understand how government works I have to admit I too get confused when it comes to independent agencies like the EPA, the FDA, and FCC.

It felt like all of the DLC was pretty unnecessary. I picked it up eventually because I became addicted but if you just played the base game it would still keep you busy for dozens of hours (assuming that this was your kind of game of course). Definitely excited for the new one.

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.

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.
