One, why the fuck does the software cost $1.35 million per server and $5,000 per device?

That's probably what they charge you when they find you've been pirating shit. A license of winzip costs like 30 bucks, but if they audit you and see you have 900 unlicensed copies, they charge you several grand per license.

Nah that's possibly the price for the software. The more specialized the software and the market the higher the price is. I know the software and maintenance my company sells to local government isn't cheap.

That article isn't even going to attempt to put forth an argument about why EA was voted worst company?

It kind of has this annoying "we all know EA isn't really the worst company" tone to it.

It was a different time. I hate old movies (anything prior to the 70s, largely) because of everything from cinematography to scores to the olde-timey acting. The only "classic" movie I actually thought was timeless was Citizen Kane, mostly for Welles' talents.

Sounds like you need to watch better classic movies then.
Welles did more than Citizen Kane

One of my favs

i can't believe i'm reading this. some of you honestly think that chris roberts is committing fraud!?

Seriously, why worry about it. they have absolutely zero impact on funding or development, they just like hating on anything successful. Always reminds me of the Steam 'Boycott MW2' group, who were all playing MW2 on release. Same will happen here, in the meantime let them moan.

Edit heres the pic.

That group had about a thousand members... At the launch hour 25 or so of them were playing the game, in Steam people playing games sort to the top of a members list. Can't believe that screenshot prompted numerous articles and people still bring it up.

OVI checkpoints or sobriety checkpoints were found legal by the Supreme Court. That article was not about those though it was about a survey ran by the federal government and aided by local police on drivers. Some lady freaked out. If you can believe it the CNN article I linked earlier says:
Deputies were told they were not to make arrests, he said. If a breath sample indicated that a driver was legally intoxicated, "The organization would handle them as far as a ride home."

And they do. Not quick enough for your liking, but then you also whine about Battlefield games coming out every other week.

1. I didn't complain about BF or CoD games coming out each year. Only about their short singleplayer campaign lengths :)!

2. Valve wanted to release episodes to get out content faster. The last HL2 episode was released 6 years ago. You find this a reasonable time? I don't! Most other companies have released several AAA titles in the meantime. Valve keeps releasing small riddle games and MP mods!

3. Maybe all of you are MP people who can play the same game over and over for years and are happy if you get a new renderer or a new hat once in a while ;). But I loved Valve for their singleplayer games which were among the best games ever! Now they just don't do them anymore. Don't tell me they couldn't have finished HL2:EP3 in the time they did P, P2, L4D, L4D2, TF2 and DOTA2. Why are they stalling? I guess because it's easier for them to make money that way...

You're so uninformed that I don't know why I'm bothering to respond.

Valve was working on HL2:Ep3 but stopped because they admitted the episodic approach was a failure. They're working on HL3 and it's taking so long because they can afford to make it exactly right. I'd rather a superb HL3 then a ho-hum Ep3.

Also if you don't think Portal and Portal 2 were AAA single player games (assuming you were referring to them when you said "small riddle games") then you're just wrong and few will agree with you.

That Texas story is a serious WTF.

No kidding, holy shit. Time to sue the police officers involved, I'd say. Voluntary survey, my ass, after a cop forces you to pull over.

Are they even allowed to pull you over in uniform if they're not on duty?

fucking ass federal government.

I read another article about these stops about a year ago... It's a night and day comparison between the two articles. This one is extremely sensational while the other was more scientific and about the study.

The stop amounts to, "Hey we're doing a study and we'll pay you to participate but you don't have to if you don't want to." "No thanks I'm busy and need to get to my destination." "Okay, have a nice day."

edit: Not the article I was talking about but a bit more information:
http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/19/us/drug-survey-roadblocks/index.html

This study is going on across the country and similar studies have been done for decades.

More people have played Valve-era CS then any of their other games until F2P TF2 and DoTA2.

And again you are talking about a mod that was not developed by Valve. Interestingly enough the creator of CS left Valve long ago, probably because he didn't just want to release his mod over and over. Until now Valve sells four versions of CS, at least EA and Activision create new levels for their endless BF and CoD series ;)!

Lifetime of CS:

June 1999 - Nov 2000 -- Mod of Valve game from Minh Le and Jess Cliffe with late support from Valve
Nov 2000 - Present -- Commercial product from Valve.

Nothing over 5 hours playtime?

What I meant was singleplayer. Of course you can't measure playtime in multiplayer games in the first place, so I thought this would be clear. After all Valve became famous due to two great singleplayer games...

And because of the great multiplayer on HL and the countless mods it spawned. More people have played Valve-era CS then any of their other games until F2P TF2 and DoTA2.

Why Are So Many Violent Criminals Walking Free?

Because there's too many pot smokers taking up jail cells?

Funny you mention that.


Forget the ACA promise; I'm waiting on the President to make good on his campaign promise to legalize pot and stop the excessive persecution of nonviolent drug law offenders. Executive order that shit and be done with it. His approval rating can't go much lower, and it just might go up as a result.

Promised to legalize pot? When?

All I remember was a broken promise to not use federal enforcement of marijuana laws in states with medical. That's a promise that I think he just renewed, let's see how long it lasts this time.

Where has 'Space Captain' been?


He got booted last xmas, as a special holiday present from Blue. Although it's certainly possible he's lurking under another ID, attempting to restrain himself...

Grin....I figured as much, but wasn't sure. He was/is an interesting dude (I mean that in a nice way). This is 'Out of the Blue', so that is what I came up with.

He was also Space Admiral and Orphic Resonance but both those were banned as well.
I like his trance music.

Didn't you know that Blues News is one of the biggest MS/Windows hate sites? Meanwhile, 99.9% of BN readers run Windows for their gaming. I really hope they all switch to SteamOS when it comes out, them maybe they'll start bashing something else they use everyday lol!

One guy spouting a bunch of crap about MS and the rest jumping on him for it... somehow that equates to a generalization about Blue's posters being anti-MS from you. Sounds more like the opposite to me.
