For a moment I thought Google was offering close up views of Liberty CITY.

I love how the ISPs try and turn their scheme on its head:
"Honest judge! We had to shoot Netflix! They were gonna shoot us! It was self defense!"
"But you shot them in the back."

We joke around about the PC Master Race, but it's this game is exhibit 1 in the case against console game: gorgeous graphics, stupid gameplay.

I'm going to have another go at this at some point, but I was so turned off by the ultra simplistic gameplay.

Microsoft's most boneheaded product is about to be killed off.

When I read the title, I thought they were getting rid of the Steve Ballmer bobbleheads. Guess they're still selling those tho.

Looks interesting, like a sprite-based SupCom. Would probably run well on my laptop, which SupCom does not.

The original was pretty nice to look at, but Trine 2 is gorgeous. Love this game, one of the only 3 player local coop games around. Play with the kids, so we'll give this another run through.

@NKD

You didn't even read the article, did you. How can you say she's OVERstating the case? She's describing ACTUAL events that happened to her and others. How is that OVERstating?

If you think they're making the problem bigger than it seems, starting today let's take 23% of your salary and give it to a woman at your work that does the same job as you. You'd be FINE with that right? You'd not complain, or tweet, or write blog posts, or anything, right? Because that would be making the issue bigger than it seems, RIGHT?

I see, you support gender equality articles, but just not THIS article, with all of it's truth and personal experience. You'd prefer polite, mealy-mouthed, watered down articles that don't effect your sensibilities or challenge your assumptions, because that's what has always worked in civil rights issues like this: politeness and asking nicely. Seriously, what fucking planet are you from?

Nice, Brianna is a radfem, because she's been verbally accosted and threatened by internet sexists and had the balls to write about it. Yup, she should have just kept her mouth shut. And stayed in the kitchen.

Look, I get it. You want nuance, subtlety, reasoned debate. Well, let me welcome you to the real world. That's not what works. What works is in-your-face smashing of biases and forcing change on people. No one gives up power willingly, and the white males that rule this planet hold so much more power than everyone else. That you're in that cohort and defending it makes perfect sense, but realize it for what it is: you are the oppressor, the ruling class, the dictator, and the masses are rising to take your power. You can either choose to recognize your position and share power willingly, or you can have it taken from you like a screaming child. It's your choice.

Here's what I'm hearing:

"Men have it hard too."

Predicted response by the author. If you're making this defense, you're making the author's point for her, or you didn't read the article. Either way, great job. Here's the difference, though. When someone on the internet says they're going to find you and fucking kill you, you don't give two shits. Being a man, you know you can pretty much can take care of yourself. When they say that to her, she stops going out at night. Also, too: rape threats and kitchen comments.

"When people say too much about this topic, people stop listening."

Because shutting up is going to fix this issue? Both people and the news industry have serious ADD. The only way to move forward is to keep it in the public eye. And it's like Gandhi said, "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." I'm seeing all three in this thread, so that's progress at least.

"I worked in the game industry, and I never saw this."

Good for you. You got lucky. That hardly means this isn't an issue. I don't even go looking for stories like this, yet come across them on a monthly basis. It's an issue, it exists, and the gaming industry is poorer for it. Tired of CoD clones? More women in the industry can help fix that.

"This is a first world problem. There are bigger issues out there."

The problem of sexism in the gaming industry is emblematic of the violence against and suppression of women worldwide. It's a major issue. There isn't a country in the world where women have equality to men. This despite women outnumbering men worldwide, and in industrialized nations having greater education. The USA, where most of these stories are focused, doesn't even break the top 10. Women in the US make 77% the salary of men in the same position, for example.

Oh God, yes. I just re-watched this last week with my wife, who had never seen it before. Even she thought it was funny.

And the cast? Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Ripley, Tim Taylor, Hans Gruber, and even the fucking Apple kid.

Yeah, I read that article and thought, Wow that's an amazing cast.

I'm surprised they were worried about getting sued. It's obviously satire, so covered under fair use.

What Happens When an Amoeba “Eats” Your Brain?

34 cases in the past decade seems pretty low. You're more likely to be bitten by a shark. Still, there was a case as far north as Minnesota, so Bats better watch out!

You can get it from tap water, too, if you let it run up your nose. Some of the cases were from neti pot use.


Was reading this last week, about one of the extremely few survivors.


Pretty good read. Did a doubletake that it was from Buzzfeed.

I launched Origin to redeem the code and noticed my CPU fan getting louder. Turns out it was using 50% CPU power. Piece of shit.

You should probably upgrade your CPU from a 486 DX2.

South Korea’s video game addicts may be exempt from military service.

You'd think those would make highly desirable soldiers, what with those finely tuned reflexes and tactical thinking and such.

Comcast’s Internet for the poor too hard to sign up for, advocates say.

That's a feature not a bug. But I'm sure that Comcast will make it easier once they acquire TWC.

Also, the author as much as admitted the article was clickbait.

No no, evil blues, stop posting clickbait you know we can't resist clicking it! Or call the section click-bait? Hey... there is an idea

Not sure if article was serious or not, but I read at as an "sarcastic take" because... well duh, PC gamers are never wrong about ANYTHING. ^^

I don't think there's a site out there these days that DOESN'T have clickbait titles. Even formerly respectable sites like Wired and Ars do it these days.

Also, we PC gamers ARE never wrong about anything. I thought I was once, but I was mistaken.

So, Beam. Still with the arguments. Still with the common sense. Still resisting the pull of the PC Master Race.

You can't resist forever. It's inevitable. There's no point in resisting. We have ways, we have ways...
