"51% are putting their personal data at risk by sharing usernames and passwords with friends, family and colleagues"

Well I know my wife's, my wife knows mine and I know some of Jr's and that makes me a statistic here under the term family as is this is a bad thing sharing with those.

If I were to share with a friend I'm 99.999% certain that this isn't the big security scare they sell us day to day and stealing our identity. My house being robbed is more of a threat to me in a case like that. Sell the fear.

It's a great FPS. I just found the inventory gamepad centered UI to be very frustrating. That said I don't understand most of the hate for the game. They did a great job with BL2. It was a big improvement over BL1 I thought. So what it's not a graphical wonder. It's fun and they got so much else right with the genre.


Yeah if it were as good as BL2 with a fixed inventory that would make me just wait for the first sale.

MS should be focusing on how to stop these additional add-ons when installing programs. They've clean up Win 7 really well, but this is still a huge thorn. I assume they want to be known as a reliable O/S, they've already lost millions to Apple prior to Win 7 and these things just keep people away. Ask has the nerve to put their logo on their HQ as if the public likes them, they should be underground for being the weasels they are.

Watching as much of the video as I could.

Reminds me of the movie The Warriors.

He says something (Chris=Cyrus) and the audience goes bonkers except the Warriors. We are the Warriors.

Sounds good, but talk is cheap.

Yep. Not sure why gamers even ask this question any more, it's always the same. But whomever continue your hate for Steam, I also assume that is why Galaxy is coming, but then isn't that just Steam with a new name?
Galaxy has no DRM. At all. Not even optional for publishers to screw around with. No regional restrictions, no bullshit. Just a download client with benefits. Steam, on the other hand, is DRM with benefits

Well then aint that going to be a little slice of heaven?

98% of passwords aren't cracked they are simply obtained and used.

If it were somebody trying to actually crack a password in the real, if the password is much more than password... they only have so many attempts before being locked out and if said system gives you unlimited attempts esp in a short period, that system is more a problem than anything else.

So I say stop with the fear. Most passwords are obtained because hackers steal the entire DB and hack that.

I'm curious as to why they felt the need to involve Steam first and why they felt the need to leave GOG out of this beta.
From a past update:
We will be releasing the Backer Beta on Steam only. The reason for this is because Steam makes the process of uploading new builds much easier than other platforms. This will allow us to put out updated versions of the game more quickly than we could otherwise. The main game will still be available on all previously promised options (Steam, GOG, etc.)

Yep. Not sure why gamers even ask this question any more, it's always the same. But whomever continue your hate for Steam, I also assume that is why Galaxy is coming, but then isn't that just Steam with a new name?

Just sort of funny reading this about satellite:

"ViaSat says this new plan won't be available everywhere. Initially it will only be offered along portions of the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf Coast; select counties in California, Arizona, and Minnesota; and across most of Alaska, Hawaii, and Florida."

I've read elsewhere that the plan is insurance just takes care of it, there is no personal investigation/liability, or that is the leading thought. The wrecks would be reduced so much, etc.

If it were the persons fault, then imo it doesn't work, because how can you be 100% alert when you would only be needed in an random ergency that rarely ever happens. They think people could just sit there and stay alert and then somehow in a split second react properly with gas/brake and steering?

You'll come to find that free-ingame will be reachable by next to no one, and not possible with a person with any kind of life.

Most of the UI stuff can be turned off, yeah, and you can just not use some of the other stuff if you don't want to.

Also no one ever see's the assassin jumping up buildings or jumping down? He's like eternally a ghost?

Well, how often do you look straight up?

I like to think I would notice from time to time, especially just one person in a huge crowd to see someone scale up or jump from afar down. And say "What is that? Do you see that? That man is climbing the wall! That man just jumped from 20'!

You don't have to be looking straight up at all to see that. Peripheral vision would even pick up odd movements where you wouldn't expect to see them. I get it is a game, but wow does that look like pushing the boundaries to me.

The fights in W1 were kind of fun, but I must admit my favorite aspect was all the sex.

Goes without saying!

The miracle of Witcher 1 was that was the freaking NWN's engine. Talk about a massive facelift.

I'm hoping to read each new day another Comcast Support story, we know this happens 100's of times per day. I just need one to satisfy me.

It is representative of the BS corporate world we have created, I think one a day after a year or two enough light bulbs may turn on.

so in theory you could get a circus performer to return punts. What they do is when the ball comes down never catch it, just continue to bobble it as you get closer and closer to the end zone (no one can touch you) and then secure it for 6 for the score when you made it past the goal.

That'd never work, because you would just tackle the guy and take the penalty, but that is a fucking retarded interpretation of the rule, yeah.

You are correct, it would be 15 yards for unsportsmanlike, I just like to describe it like that to show how f'in stupid that one is.
