Anyone else wondering why a picture of a (rather impressive) schlong would be on a hard drive in a newsroom control room?

(Archer voice) You mean there are hard drives out there WITHOUT schlongs on them?

Haha. I suppose not.

Prez, you doing, ok? That's the second obit in your sig.



Those are my deceased shelter dogs. Working with so many animals at the shelter means lots of obits unfortunately. For some strange reason it makes me feel better to honor them in my sig. Monte was a beautiful shephard mix that suffered so much negelct in his life.

I was hoping this would be more like the Donkey Kong high score competition video I saw years ago. Who knew there could be so much drama with a barrel-throwing monkey game from the '80's!

It looks like the "Right of Publicity" penalty is for displaying images they have no right to display, which appears to be outside the child porn charge. Otherwise it would seem that the court is implying that this is only illegal if the person in the images you post is underage.

But I thought this was impossible.....it must be EA magic!

It took them months, so clearly it wasn't easy.
But everyone can keep talking about how this was flipping a switch.

Which isn't a defense, they are the ones that built it to not function offline in the first place, but people keep saying fairly dumb things about them changing that.

Dindn't a modder have it running offline in less than a month after release?

Thank you!

If you haven't grabbed Expeditions: Conquistador yet, run, don't walk, to get it. Totally a steal for $5. I don't know how or why this was overlooked by so many people but it's a gem. Ima probably give this another playthrough again very soon. I hope it did well enough to warrant a follow-up.


Thank you. Sold.


Yeah, me too.

"This is the most definitive SimCity experience whether you choose to play Online or Offline."

...as long as you forget about Simcity 1 through Simcity 4. Do they actually think people buy this shit they are putting out?

It was a sad day when Popcap was bought by EA. It took a while for the ax to fall, but fall it has.

Yep. I know they probably got a nice paydayfor being acquired by EA, but it marked the end of an exciting developer.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't committing suicide over a fixed game. This was just the incident that turned out to be that proverbial straw. His life and mental state were probably already in shambles before this.

You're probably right. But some of these young professional players build their whole life and identity around it. Part of his suicide note was :

"I know I could have done better, but thanks to these events my professional career was over," he added. "After practicing to my best for a year, all I had left was a feeling of emptiness."

It's sad when you get to the point where a meaningless competition seems all important. But I imagine there are hardcore athletes in most sports who feel the same way.

Yeah, the Asian hardcore gamer scene is scary intense. I'd like to think Asian gamers would be able to keep the game in perspective, but like you said, how sad is it that some of them feel it's their only useful purpose.

Sensationalism notwithstanding (which The Escapist has already apologized for), that is an absolutely horrific story. This woman raised this kid herself and her thanks is to be beaten to death by him. This kid has some serious issues - hopefully they have a better mental health system in the Phillipines than they do here in the US.

I watch enough of the TV and movies and get enough stuff delivered to make 99 bucks a year an easily justifiable expense. Rising prices is just reality of modern times. It wouldn't hurt nearly as much if wages were rising to offset them, but that is another discussion. (Meaning don't start that political shit in here!!! )

The last MOBA I tried was Demigod, and only in singleplayer, which wasn't too entertaining for too long due to sketchy AI. If the singleplayer in this is decent I might give it a whirl.

Honestly, I don't know why companies like ea and Activision aren't hunting down the companies ...and specifically the PEOPLE being paid to provide hacks. They should have legal grounds to do so, as it subverts the original design of their software. Maybe that's where it'll eventually end up, but for now, banning the cheaters solves nothing. It's like scolding a drug addict and believing that'll stop the illegal drug trade.

The funny thing is that the community does a pretty good job of addressing things itself when it has the tools but the companies keep taking away more and more control. Activision/etc can't really sue the companies providing the hacks, many are in foreign countries and new ones will spring up to replace old ones quickly.

This is the number one reason I stopped buying mp shooters. I suck at them to begin with; at least when there are client-side tools I can set up co-op servers against bots and enjoy it. I still am playing BF2 and BF2142 (with co-op mod), but I'll never touch a modern BF.
