The skepticism around Origin didn't really pan out. Yeah, a lot of us hardcore grognards try to avoid it

Not sure what a grognard is... but hardcore, the only reason I wouldn't use anything is if it was truly shitty, didn't work and caused me a lot of headaches, that was GFWL. These other offerings and GOG's has their upcoming client coming to. If they install, I can log in and buy, download and run, I actually respect their right to do this. It is a fair business decision, I have to think all of us if in their position would be thinking the same, 30% if fucking huge to give up.

With Win 7 pc gaming has been easier and more reliable then ever. The apps are working no matter who, the fault is the entire industry not making a cooperative frontend for the users.

Oh and if we want to be petty and shallow, who was president then? What admin in control then? Since everyone loves to play that game.

You are aware that all the post-2008 petting of the banks and not actually bringing a single fucking criminal suit against ANY of their executives all happened under Obama's watch, right? And he signed off on Holden BURYING every single shred of evidence?

But the bigger crime being the actual crime fell under the former. And whatever happens under your watch is your fault, that is how this game is played. I only say it because too many use that, I laugh at it mostly since it is ridiculous to be so black and white in a gray world.

The only right answer to the political side is they both suck, that said you might think one sucks slightly less.

But to go back to what you said, there were a lot of factors to that as well. The whole thing was pushed and rushed because advisors stated it would collapse if there wasn't an immediate action. The person in charge now wasn't happy, stated, but it was how everyone was being pushed.

But we all have to love all these fines companies get, not just this topic and the money goes to the gov't, better than nothing, sure. But those really affected do they ever really get their justice of being whole? One can argue these fines just mean higher prices for the rest of us using their services going forward.

And what isn't told was they brought in a dog and they found pot and now the high up exec is facing drug possession charges.

I kid on this article, but there is a story like this that this has happened to. Talk about a real punch in the gut. So you also have civil rights issues, what if they refused to have the police enter?

They have. People had enough of being forced to use Steam AND Uplay, so they listened to customer wishes and removed Steam

Yeah, I was wondering when they'd take the jump.

It sucks, because there is zero fucking portability with Uplay, but it means a lot more money in their pocket. EA hasn't suffered under not being on Steam, so expect to see this more and more. Yay.

I guess anti-Steam people will get their wish, Steam will no longer be the dominant platform. Instead you'll have 30 different fucking clients (and 30 accounts that can be hacked...)

You really have to put yourself in their shoes. If Steam was all that, they should have invited these companies in as a consortium, a coop. That can still happen if they wanted to. This imo all goes back to MS fucking up and not seeing this on the PC level and having an open marketplace for all.

after reading that...../sigh, unbelievable

But it isn't, that is what we jab at here regularly when we are on the political prowl. What kills me is the yankee doodle that continues to buy everything face value. How many times should we be lied to before we can question? To some there is no count, its all for good reason or it will be taken care of and not happen again.

I'm in a business that gets to see a lot of business, there is massive fraud everywhere, people will do anything to keep money coming in, we have a shit load of laws because these jackwagons exist to try bending everything. So they are the reason we get large gov't, otherwise they would just take everything from you blindly. It is part of the uglyness of capitalism. Good thing there is an expiration date on life, no?

Oh and if we want to be petty and shallow, who was president then? What admin in control then? Since everyone loves to play that game. We have a current prez that wanted to fix a broken health care system and they let this shit get swept under the rugs, that was the criminal act. Reforming helath or not is an opion/task, not criminal, but they try to sell that to us that it is. The Affordable is a bastardized system of what we could have if everyone was in it to improve health care. However the ex pres famous words "It's not about figuring out what happened in the past, it is fixing it so it doesn't happen again", which anyone with an ounce knows that "We don't want to catch who did it, because indirectly that is us".

I've seen people losing their minds over this and I don't get why. When you buy a Ubisoft game on Steam, you're literally just downloading the uPlay copy. When you double-click on the game in Steam, it launches uPlay and the games have no Steamworks integration. It's literally no different than just buying it on uPlay anyway, except you initially launch it from Steam, which you can still do by adding it as a non-Steam game. Don't get me wrong, I detest uPlay (look up the living Hell Splinter Cell: Blacklist owners went through with that) but people who are like "I hate this because I hate uPlay!" don't seem to get you've been buying those versions all along anyway.

This to.

I see Ubi still hasn't learned their lesson. I guess ill be skipping their games from now on.

Not a big fan of uPlay, but I wouldn't be so quick to jump on Valve's defense. Their cut of digital sales is pretty high, somewhere around 30%. Which is fine for smaller devs who need the exposure Steam can offer, but for Ubisoft, whose games already have tons of press and marketing, and they already have their own digital store where they get to keep it all, frankly I'm surprised they haven't pulled their entire catalog at this point like EA.

That is the bottom line, these people have jobs there and when they have a product they can use that they get 100% of sales vs use someone else product instead with a cut involved, it is pretty easy.

Steam isn't a product of an alliance, it needed to be, but it isn't. Since it isn't you will have this and in this case I cannot fault them, this is real dollars that make a difference.

As a consumer we have the right to choose as we may.

Will be interesting to see if rating the customer and adjusting service on that rating will be a good idea, usually not. So now it will be how much do you tip, takes you to the front of the line?

Project CD isn't publicly traded is it?

From their website:

CD Projekt S.A. (formerly CD Projekt RED S.A.) is a holding company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Its business activities focus on development of videogames in The Witcher franchise (the CD Projekt RED studio; formerly CD Projekt RED Sp. z o.o.) Its subsidiary companies deal with distribution of videogames and motion pictures (CDP.pl Sp. z o.o.) and operating an online game distribution platform with global reach (GOG Ltd.)

All the more commendable then, not many of those birds around.

Too bad about Zalman. Until Noctua came along, it was Zalman for many years for me.

Too bad? Did you read it. The only thing that scam missed was you don't do that shit in Korea but the U.S. now many face prison, in the U.S., perhaps a fine a fraction of what they stole. This makes Curt Shilling's deal look like Lemon Aid Stand fraud.

It is 21 days to be safe. It isn't they are just taking you for no reason at all and putting you in prison. It is part of the process if you want to help those with Ebola, great for you doing this, but there will be a 21 day "safe" period for all involved. Thank you for understanding we are doing are best to contain a dangerous infectious disease. Nothing personal at all, nothing. Safety first, right?

I wasn't one yelling doomsday, but there is common sense and doing everything we can to make sure it doesn't spread.

The article is about the extra plastic on the frame can block peripheral vision. Nothing about a toll due to damaging the eye, it just blocks your vision due to bulk.


"I am very pro new technology," said Dr. Tsontcho Ianchulev, lead author of a research letter concerning Google Glass, and a clinical associate professor in the department of ophthalmology at University of California, San Francisco. "I'm an aficionado of anything new or novel, and I myself was an early adopter of Google Glass," he added.

"But I almost got into a car accident when I was driving with it. And the device was even turned off at the time. So, that really alerted me to how much my peripheral vision seemed to be blocked by the frame," he continued.

"What we've done is test the glasses in a very simple low-budget way, using standard ophthalmology to compare it to regular eyewear," Ianchulev said. "And we found that the frame of Google Glass cuts out a portion of your vision that prevents a user from seeing things on the right side of their visual field."

"truly pushed the genre forward in many ways"

Can anyone give a state a couple of these, since there literal? A beta game never getting out of beta has stated it has moved the genre forward.
