Apple will give popular jailbreak tool the banhammer with next iOS update.

Why do they even care? Jailbreakers are such a small % of Apple users.

Exactly, this is why Apple is losing a major share of the market. They pulled this crap with the pc years ago and lost that battle too. Apple will never learn. This is the main reason I have never bought an apple product. I will not be locked out of it and forced to use it the way they deem fit.

Sounds like to me both developers were in a pissing contest about who was right. To toss out valuable assets made by the other developer and not use them is selfish pride and ridiculous.

The things that killers have in common with one another, it's curious that they are stuck on videogames being even partially the cause. I would like to dub this, "The Coulter Phenomenon" - people don't REALLY think these things, there are just plenty of people that will say them (true or not) to sell books, get on TV to promote their books, etc, to get rich. End of story.

Having said that, access to a gun in a moment of passion is not a good thing. Despite what the NRA would have you think, there are more girlfriend vs boyfriend, wife vs husband arguments daily than home invasions in a year; ie, guns are more likely to be used in a situation where they shouldn't be used than one where they should.

(that wasn't intended to be a factual statement, btw, to quote senator Jon Kyl. Just a common sense assumption to make a point.)

Cant argue with you on that point, but they will grab whatever they can in the heat of the moment. That includes sharp objects.

Until a new study comes out next week which says they do.

Yep,

Video games donít cause violence, only people that have no sense of whatís right or wrong do.

Just like blaming the gun for killing someone, the gun didnít pull the trigger its self, the person wielding it did. All of these mechanisms are just an outlet that people use as an excuse to blame rather than looking into the real issue.

Beat the first game in 28hrs in old school mode according to Steam. Had fun and it scratched an itch but I'm not really jonsing for more. I'll probably pick it up during a Steam sale though.

The combat was fun for a while but a bit shallow for my taste. The puzzles and atmosphere however were great.


Iím baffled by your comment, isnít any game that sells for 14.99 a sale? Some of you cheap bastards really are cheap.

I want to know whatís going to happen to games that still use game spy as a service for playing games. Does this now mean that once their gone, so are those servers and any ability to now connecting or host games are also gone? Sounds like an EA tactic in the making here.

This game is about dead. NWO is going to kill this game. I was on the recent beta and had a great time. I dont see this game lasting much longer once NWO is released.

Are you serious?
Cryptic puts out nothing but garbage.
Then again... DDO ain't all that great either, IMO.

I wonít disagree that in the past a lot of their stuff was bad, but you have to play the beta and see just what they have done. The game is getting nothing but rave reviews from reviewers and everyone who played the beta. I had a link to one of the sites when I find it ill post it. But this is defiantly a game that they are doing it right. And that is because they are being given the time and a good budget for this game.

If they don't release a PC version, the game will not recieve the accolades they want out of it. I certainly would not buy it for a console no matter how good they say it is.

This will never see the pc, Bungie sold their souls long ago to Microsoft when they sold out to the console with Halo.

On the back burner like Kings & Castles, probably. Depends on what Wargaming wants them to do.

I asked Chris that same question; he told me there is no defiant answer that he can give right now. I think they have to get the whole transition taken care of and Iím sure there are going to be meetings on how they are going to proceed on future titles.

Well, this took me by surprise. I knew he had something brewing, but never expected this.

I say good luck to him on his new endeavor and I hope it all works out. Going to be interesting to see if they keep the doors open in Seattle or bring them in-house.

First off, letís be clear about this. I never once told anyone that they had to buy this game. My defense of this game came from people piling on the hatewagon of this game before anyone had even played it. There have been some screen shots released showing off the Xbox version. And yes I think some have even got the extent of purposely trying to smear this game.

But I never once said, you all need to go and buy this game. Sorry, do not put words into my mouth. I know what I said. And I stand by it.

Watched the Giantbomb quicklook and while the game didn't look amazing I thought it looked acceptable. Maybe a point less than homefront. Homefront had a lot of the same issues I'm seeing in this game but that was a while ago so maybe this one is being judged more harshly.

Looking at Metacritic Homefront got a 70 and this game seems to be getting a 45-50. Seems like a 50-60 might be more fair but meh, can't say I really care one way or the other.

I thought I saw a comment on destructoid that the press had been shown a "demo" that shows gameplay that isn't in the game? Wasn't clear if he was saying they created a demo specifically to fool the press and then sold a totally different game? Or if it's just content that isn't in the full game?

This is not the first company to put up a tech demo and not have any of that in a game. Itís done all of the time. When will people stop over reactive when something is not in a game that you saw in a demo. Movies do the same thing all the time too. How many times have you watched a preview and never seen that scene in a movie? Lots!!

GB was just showing off the game and what it can do, this is NOT something that new or that they are trying to deceive the public about. Read the fine print, there are clauses in there about how this is review material and is subject to change.
