All I want is a new Populous game. Is that so hard?

I was hoping this would go through but now it looks sort of shaky. I hope more people donate at the last minute.

Soo... Origin guy thinks I'm going to buy games from Origin because they have more cachet?

Really?

Good luck with that, pal.

I still think parenting should require a mandatory exam. Like the driver exam.

People (officials, etc.) would abuse that power guaranteed.

I don't understand how they were unable to strap a seat belt on a 3 year old.

Is the parent trying to play victim at the end?

I remember getting a lot of hours out of U7. I'm not sure I ever actually beat it.

If the game came with the "Forge of Virtue" expansion I would recommend doing that late-game. The stuff you get from it is kind of over-powered IMO.

Ultima 7 is definitely worth playing.

Ultima 7 Part 2 is worth playing.

Ultima 8 is not. Not even for $3.

The Pod Racer game was actually pretty good and I'd sort of like to have a sequel to it. As racing games went I liked it. It just suffered from some game balance problems (once you got your pod upgraded it was hard to lose) and a lack of tracks.

If people wonder why they hate the west maybe they ought to consider the reasons.

But I get what you were going for.

I'm sure China has its own program to launch viruses against any number of targets and has probably done so in the past and will do so in the future. Viruses aren't exactly a western exclusive.

He made some good movies. The latest ones haven't been so great. Maybe he will be happier making his "indie" films.

The last 3 SW movies weren't up to par. I guess he doesn't "get" that (which is too bad) but then he doesn't owe anyone anything either.

Neat. Trespass in somebody's building for 2 months and get $50,000 in seed money because you're "tenacious".

I doubt Ghostery would help much if Facebook actually bought the browser. Besides, Ghostery has a giant "Friend us on Facebook" button right on their front page. That's not exactly inspiring for a company that's supposedly dedicated to privacy.

If Facebook buys Opera I guess I'll have to quit using Opera. That's too bad.

Broadband providers shouldn't be able to "not count" their own video streaming services against user data caps just to shut down Netflix. That part of the plan really isn't fair.

The rest of the tiered data plan ideas reek too, come to think of it. Nice to see the FCC chairman being fair and keeping the consumers in mind. *roll eyes*

Facebook seems like a short term investment and it seems really over-valued for what it is. Didn't anyone learn anything from Myspace? People switch social networking sites like tissue paper.

Cloud computing kills the desktop PC just like dumb terminals took over the market and... Oh.

Every time the economy takes a downturn the idea of dumb terminals comes back with a new name. Every single time.

Dragon Shout app seems okay - and it's free too. That's the risk you run when you try to piggy-back on somebody else's IP though. They might not like it, no matter how benevolent or innocent you are. It's theirs. That's the thing with "intellectual property". It's a big private bag of tricks and you are not invited to play with it unless you do so in the prescribed manner. That is what copyright and patent laws have left us with - a culture defined by the products we buy instead of the stuff we make.
