Since it's MP I guess UbiDRM is completely irrelevant here even if this title has it.

I can't remember where I'd seen it, but it was said that it was not coming to Steam immediately upon release. They'd also promised to try to provide Steam integration for existing owners if/when the game does get added to Steam.

Let's say we take what Blizzard says as face value. This is a very easy mechanism to circumvent , and I am amazed that Blizzard calls this tamper proof (for single player). This game is going to be available for single player through torrents, I'm sure.

As for online gaming (coop,competitive,etc.) there is no way to be lag free since the information coming back is important for the player's decisions and the ongoing flow of the game.

In short, this article is about their DRM and it sucks..

To be clear, there are no quotes from Blizzard in that story.

I'm going to give Blue the benefit of the doubt because the first time I read that article I didn't see any of the, now clear, mentions of the Livestream context. I did see a clarification in the comments on page though. Methinks they changed/fixed it.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the case.

I didnt play this game until it was on 3d0... so major spoiledness I was. The video was almost dvd quality with high quality audio. And the in cockpit videos were also in color.

I want to say I had the PlayStation port of this one. I found some bug that caused the game to freeze, and EA's response was basically "yeah, don't do that".

So I go to the Doctor, and I say, "Doc, It hurts when I do this." So he says: "Don't do that."
Drummer
Thank you!

Good night everybody... Try the veal.

Wait, won't this get the game canned? Lucas is a homophobe who has long and staunchly maintained that homosexuality does not exist in his galaxy.

I've never heard that. And if that's true it makes the casting of Hayden Christiansen a little odd, because if he's not gay, there are still certainly enough rumors about him to put off a real homophobe.

It's not a good deal, 560s are going as low as $130 in some places. A 560 Ti or a Radeon 6950 would be a more appropriate offering for this promotion.

I wrote the headline based on the lowest priced card on Amazon, but in rechecking I see there's one elsewhere for $175 (after a rebate).

another test (sorry)

edit: is it right, er, intentional I mean, that I can't delete my own comments?

Yes. Even when an admin deletes a comment it remains with the body replaced by something like *Deleted*, so you can edit your own comments and replace them with whatever you want.

Well, American football is cool if you like wearing armor, but the US rugby team has made it all the way to the Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand that starts on 09/09/2011. I wish them all the best as they aren't wearing helmets and kevlar ;)

I realize you are joshing, but the fact is the padding makes American football *far* more dangerous than most other sports, including Rugby. A quick bit of research on the infallible internet says that from 1930-2006 there were "1,006 direct and 683 indirect fatalities resulting from participation in all organized football"
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_issues_in_American_football ), while "In the 110 years that rugby has been played, there has [sic] been only 71 recorded deaths in the sport" ( http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_deaths_have_there_been_playing_rugby ).

This is nothing for a football fan to be proud of, but I hear this stuff about pads making the game so safe, but the fact is they promote collisions that are far more violent than if the players were unpadded.

Seriously. God bless 'em, they are reslly starting to be competitive in a non-primary american sport and we love seeing 'em play in this tournament. Please support your team

I am glad you brought this up, as I have not seen it reported anywhere... I will try and find a way to root them on.

Gotta admit.. I dislike seeing Blue's dip into tabloid headlines, but whatever.

I'm always interested in opinions on editorial policy. First I'll assume by headlines, you mean the story itself, as

"Dead Island Maker Gives Leading Lady A 'Feminist Whore' Skill"

Seems pretty tabloid, but

"Dead Island 'Private Joke' Goes Public"

Does not, though maybe I'm not objective.

Presuming I'm correct about that, does that mean in your opinion I should have ignored this altogether?

Hey Blue, why don't you start a website that actually contributes something to humanity? Fuck your candy shop.

Upset that your first troll was ignored? This is pretty weak sauce, but if you really want to be banned just say so. They will write poems about you when you're martyred.

Is it really necessary to use examples of potentially offensive terms to discuss this topic? I don't want to sweep through this thread and delete half the posts, so please stop. Immediately.

Lets just pretend that sort of language is against the rules here, since it actually is, okay?

Thanks.

Unfortunately you may get a shot to play on the Big Blue's defense this year the way things are going.

I know... I don't think I've ever heard of so many season-ending injuries before the season even started.

Jonathan Goff hurt a lot, but losing Terrell Thomas was a killer.

I'm fuzzy on the whole "good/bad" thing.

Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously, and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

What was wrong with how this was reported in the story you are commenting on?

I thought dogs couldn't eat chicken with bones because the hollow bones splinter?

The bones are actually relatively soft, and only become brittle when they are cooked. They crunch away quite happily on the raw wings.

Are all your dogs having stomach problems or just the one still? If he/she is still bad you might have to consider a vet if its been quite a while since you started a bland rice diet.

Gunnar-man had a bout last weekend, and Hudson the wonder dog started up around the time Gunnar stopped. I've kept in touch with the vet, and she doesn't feel there's cause for alarm unless Hudson's problems last a couple more days.

Hey Blue, why the [sic] in the quote? There's nothing grammatically wrong with that paragraph. Or do you do that for every quote?

"There's too many..."

Not using the contraction, that expands to: "There is too many..."

It should be "There are too many..."
