Are you drunk?
http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/ Just read what it says there

http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/download

Yes. It's available to download for anyone that can do a google search.

Right right available to download the beta version.
By available I meant it is finished. Thought it was obvious but it seems like it wasn't for everyone.

I'm not incredibly fond of the entire idea of e-sports in the first place, but if there's any one thing that stands out about the potential it has it's that short of an outright disability nobody has an unfair advantage over another based on any physical criteria.

Unless pros these days have learned to whack the spacebar with their penis in tournaments or something for an APM advantage, I guess I don't follow it closely enough to know.


Posts like these would make sense if there wasn't two separate tournaments.

I think many organizers, especially just a few years ago, wouldn't allow trans gamers on the team at all. But they are allowing it now and unfortunately have put restrictions on it to prevent abuse. It sounds ridiculous but maybe they've already encountered side switching not done in good faith (for lack of a better phrase). Obviously the solution is to just do away with the separate tournaments or if there's opposition to that make a third co-ed tournament.

EDIT: You know what, the "gay" part of this rule is really weird. I was initially not comprehending that I guess. I hope that's a translation error.

Why the fuck are there 2 tournaments anyway? I dont see how being female, male, transgender gay, straight, shit-faced, etc. makes a difference in a fucking E-sport!

EDIT2: Ahh there we go, somebody on Facebook cleared up the "gay" part about the rule. I guess I was right about the translation error.

""Gay" here doesn't mean homosexual, as we'd use it in the US or Europe. It's the English word used in the Philippines as the analog for the tagalog word "bakla." Bakla are, in the simplest terms, people who are born as men, present themselves as women, but unlike transgender women, they do not identify as women. They don't identify as men, either. They identify as "bakla" or "gay."
So when the tournament says that a team can have only one transgender woman or gay, it has nothing to do with lesbians. It is targeting people who identify as bakla/gay. This is super confusing outside of the region, but I expect that this announcement was written to communicate with people who would understand the meaning."

Filipino 3rd gender. Also explains their use of "feminine tournament" instead of "female" or "women's"

Wow, I would not have expected that.

1. Theme
2. Some bad reviews out of the gate
3. Old style gameplay not popular with teh kidz
4. Early Access
5. Did I mention the depressing theme?

Anyway, kudos to them.

It fills a niche that hadn't been filled previously (afaik). I think people that like games like this have wanted a complex prison builder/management game for a long time. I bought this game basically when it was first announced just on the title alone.

There are a ton of fake xHamster sites out there and I'd bet this article is mistakenly about those. And when I say fake xHamster I don't mean just other "porn tube" types sites but actual fake sites that use the logo and everything but aren't actually xHamster.

I've been rocking 60/12 ever since I got that docsis 3 surfboard you guys recommended. Didn't realize such speeds were available to me without changing my contract, I had been sitting at 30/7 for years.

What is this magical modem you are referring to and does it work with any cable internet provider? Very interested in this magic bandwidth doubling technology.

I think he's referring to upgrading to a DOCSIS 3.0 capable modem from a DOCSIS 2.0 modem.

Yep. Comcast has been bumping up speeds around here for a while I just didn't really care since I had no problems with my 30 that I was paying for since that's what I agreed to 5 years ago. They never informed me about how much they had increased it beyond mailers simply urging me to upgrade my modem to "unlock faster speeds" etc. with no specifics. I decided to get my own modem instead of theirs and someone pointed me at this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AJHDZSI

Why do people keep giving david cage money? All his games are mostly story where the story is terrible.

I've liked all of his games and will most likely continue to buy them. They don't tend to be something I go back and play again though, and I bet this one hasn't held up at all despite being pretty original when it was first released.

Valve actually pays 25% on workshop.

So Valve brought in $200 million on workshop items and gave $50 million of that to the non-valve artists who put their stuff on the workshop.

Holy shit? Seriously? They're taking 75%? That should be illegal. That's fucking ridiculous. Still I guess if only takes you a few hours to bang off an item to put up for sale it's basically free money anyway.

I left out some key information that makes it (slightly) less crazy. Valve is selecting which items make it into the official game, and they then sell that content. It's not like they're offering an open marketplace where they take 75%. That would be the "Steam Market" where you sell Valve's digital items to each other, there Valve takes 5% of the sale, or 10% for TF2, CS:GO, and DOTA2.

It's like you're a junk collector who is allowed to freely collect random junk and sell that junk to other junk collectors at the "Steam Market". The owner of the junk pile takes 10% of those sales though he doesn't charge you for the junk itself... But if you wanted to you could pay for specific junk. Some specific junk is created in the junk pile owner's "Steam Workshop" and a small percentage of that junk gets picked by the junk pile owner to litter his junk pile. The creators of this junk get 25% of the specific sales of the junk they created in the junk pile owner's workshop.

Common sense is what the world had before Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. Think about it.

Is all the profanity a sign of frustration of me not falling on my knees and joining your herd? I'm thinking...yes?

And what killed all the natives after Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. Why that would be smallpox, because none of the natives had been vaccinated, so most of them died.

I'd be interested in hearing your responses to my arguments as well.

Haha, yeah that was an odd thing to say in light of the topic.
Hard to believe it's not trollin.

And, Woo Packers!

I was watching it on delay, and trust me when I say I loathe the Cowboys, but that overturn on Dez Bryant's catch was god-awful terrible. What the fuck more does a receiver have to do before he's considered to have "made a football move???" He caught the ball, made two steps with it, goes down and only when it hits the ground does it come lose.

NFL Tard Ref "It was determined that ehhh... I dunno either. Overturned!"

Unbelievable. What a horseshit call.

I guess they were saying he never fully had control of the ball? If so seems a pretty tough call, specially to overturn the call on the field. Still, I guess what the refs giveth the refs can taketh away.

The problem with the rule just showed itself full face in the Den vs Ind game. Punt return, never had control, said he was "down by contact" when getting hit instantly.

F the rule. It is a terrible rule. It was a TD. If the Packers had done the exact same thing - they would have given it to them. The NFL hates teams like the Cowboys, Vikings, and a few others.

It's a receiver specific rule, a punt return is not a pass.

That's funny because what you're actually hearing is a slight influence of a Texas accent on top of a Michigan "accent" which is generally considered "unaccented" General American.
