Between PS+ and the steam sale I'm drowning in games again. Guess I'll have to quit my job so I have enough time to play them all.

I saw some kids playing minecraft at the local park

Im trying to picture this in my head but really cant get it to work with my (limited) imagination. Were they like sitting in the sand pit and playing it on their laptops?? Worried
More like on their iPod or iPad.
This game is on every imaginable platform.
My 7 yrs old son plays this all the time. He shows me the stuff he built, and than when he gets together with his other friends they are talking about all their Mincraft stories.
I think this game is amazing to capture the young ones like this. I much rather see my kids play something like this than CoD

Its kind of sad to see that in the park though. Whats the point of going outside to play if they are basically still playing minecraft on their ipads or whatever?? Sigh...50 years from now kids wont even know what a tree looks like in real life, they will probably recognise one in a picture on their tablet of choice...

I think you guys completely misinterpreted Pigeon's comment. They were playing "Minecraft", as in the unauthorized-imagination-port and "ground-is-lava" clone, not Minecraft the game on electronic devices.

Bingo! Sorry I wasn't clear, no electronic devices were used only their imaginations and playground equipment. I only knew it was "Minecraft" they were playing because one of the kids was loudly and excitedly explaining the rules.

Never would have guessed it would get so popular, but good for them. Fun game...

Indeed. I bought it back in Alpha; but I never thought it would take off like this.

I saw some kids playing minecraft at the local park, it appeared to be a variant of the classic 'the ground is lava' game with zombies.

Except there's still a little problem with the fact that you don't own the space you're selling, the city does. I can only imagine the kind of shit that will get started when someone is waiting for somebody else to leave a spot and is told that they're not leaving until the person who paid them to leave shows up. Also, ParkModo was guilty of paying people to take up spaces but it's just those kinds of "innovations" that this kind of system will lead to.

Exactly, it's not their spot to sell.

A pc with those iMac specs could be built for less than 600 lol (and the ram could be upgraded later).

Even as an all-in-one its ridiculously expensive. Maybe the extra cost is from finding a Core i5 with only 2 cores running at 1.4Ghz

"A full 56% of Americans oppose the merger, and only 11% of respondents were in favor of it.... three quarters of respondents 74% believe that the merger will increase cable and internet prices for everyone."

Saying over half doesn't really illustrate the disparity in support as some 33% don't have an opinion. When you take that into consideration 56% in opposition is huge. Among those with an opinion its 5 opposed to 1 in favor.

It shouldn't even be in consideration if politicians actually listened to their constituents. But then I understand how the sacks of money Comcast is contributing can muffle the of pissed off voters...

Was he taking a money bath while making these comments?

Also:

Bungie helped make PS4 controller better for shooters

Hmm, I don't remember my PS4 controller looking like a mouse and keyboard.

When Clarence Thomas writes the majority opinion of a 9-0 decision against you, you KNOW you're in the wrong.

Ha! Zing! Cereal though, it was a good decision and long overdue. Seeing as congress can't pull their collective heads out of their collective asses on patent reform maybe the SCOTUS will manage it.

Wait, you mean my, typing words... but on a computer, patent is no longer valid!? I'm ruined

I'd also suggest paying a CEO those ridiculous amounts reflects the poor priorities of the board. Either being taken in by branding and/or he illusion that more expensive = better.

I thought the mayor poop tossing story was going to be about him getting in trouble for a return to sender act, nope, the guy is a psycho for throwing shit in his neighbor's yard because the neighbor disagreed with him.

Using a cell to look at a GPS program is no different from texting. When I need to look at my map I only do when I'm stopped at a light or I pull over and study it. When your driving your only focus should be on driving.

Soo... rigging my laptop to the dash so I can play DOTA2 while driving to work isn't safe either?

I've ridden with people who act like their GPS screen is more important to watch than the road, its scary, but explains a lot of the terrible driving I see.

Which basically says you've got content people want but they can't get legally without a lot of hassle and/or without paying significantly more than they are willing. I'm not condoning piracy, but when you see this much of it there's a problem on the supply side.

I can have a hard time finding servers where the teams aren't consistently lopsided. I don't mind losing, but I don't like getting rolled because the other team can hit the ass of a gnat from two miles away, and my team keeps trying to hug enemy turrets, and not the kind of hugs spies give turrets. I don't particularly like being on the team that does the rolling either. But I guess that's a problem with most games like this.

How about Comcast forcing you to "share" the internet connection you've paid for and using your electricity so their so called customers can have wi-fi access from you as a collective hot-spot.

Pretty sure you can opt out of that.


If memory serves correctly you can, but you have to know its there to opt out, and some how I doubt Comcast is presenting it as an option.

Second, you have to micro-transaction absolutely EVERYTHING. Not just pay-to-win shit, no, EVERYTHING. Want to change your keybindings? That'll be 5 bucks for the "Keybinder Unlock." Want to be able to quicksave? Ten bucks for the "Quicksave Unlock."

Fun bonus, every time you get an achievement, your credit card (which you have to provide before being allowed to install the game) gets charged three bucks, which shows up on your bill as "Administrative fees for processing an Achievement."


Ssh, don't give EA any ideas
