Is the bone controller really that much better than the 360 controller?

Nope. It's more comfortable to hold but I find other things to be straight up regressions from the 360 controller.

Okay, good to know. I'm pretty happy with my 360 controllers. I prefer wired, so I would actually consider this if one of mine broke. Definitely want to see what Steam comes out with.

Did no one catch that I was quoting Agent Smith from The Matrix?

On a more serious note, I was trying to obliquely point out that people take affront to hunting animals in game because they are threatened in the real world, and people have an emotional attachment to that. Animals are also innocents. Humans are neither threatened nor innocents, therefore people have less compunction mowing them down by the hundreds or thousands in game.

I found the one quests where you murder turtles for medicinal value to be offensive. Even a Korean game should not do that in Korea considering the senseless slaughter of animals around the world that causes so many animal populations to disappear when a sugar pill would probably be just as effective.

Seriously?

It's a fricking game... You're killing pixels, nothing more, nothing less. Much like playing Hitman, murdering a bunch of people has no actual implications for RL...

Jeebus, I really hope you didn't play AC:Black Flag or Far Cry 3. The amount of rare/endangered species you slaughtered in those games to make wallets and holsters etc were epic...

The difference is that turtles are endangered, humans aren't. Every animal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but humans do not. They move to an area and they multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way they can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. They're a plague and you are the cure.

Watching Grand Budapest Hotel in a German theater (movie was in english with german subtitles, although i think 99% of everyone in there spoke and understood perfect english) was hilarious in of itself.... The theater was half full (half empty?) and my wife and i were falling out of our seats laughing while the rest of the theatre was dead silent. Seemingly taking the whole charade serious. About halfway through the movie the crowd started to lighten up and finally 'get it' that it wasnt suppose to be takin so serious, which to me was hilarious in of itself.

This story isn't helping the stereotype of German people as uptight and humorless.

What happens with steam account once you die though? Can family take it over? Or do you have to plan ahead and make sure your passwords are accessible to whoever is left after you? And how would you facilitate that without it being a huge security risk?

This stuff doesn't worry me much yet, but I feel like it is stuff that is important to know. With more and more of our lives being digital.....
Good question, my will states that ownership of my steam library transfers to my sister and best friend. Should they both want it the number of games will be randomly divided between both parties. I'm sure that someone else has included this in their own will already and it'll probably hit the courts before I die.

Case law is going to catch up shatteringly fast to this without a question. It'll follow that consumer and federal laws(or state laws) will catch up fast once it starts hitting the courts as well.

How can games in a single Steam account be divided among two or more people?

Wait, there are idiots on the Internet now?

I've wondered if Blue has considered switching to a vote based comment system. I used to be in favour of such an idea but not any more, I'd rather keep this system.

I don't think we need up-down votes. The one thing I think the site needs is a hierarchical comment structure, so it's obvious who is replying to whom.

My favorite part of their letter is:

"No group of authors as diverse or prominent as this has ever come together before in support of a single cause."

Yea... a cause that's about how much money you're making... real noble "cause". hehe.
Yeah that's pretty much what I thought, and they wonder why ebook piracy is through the roof. Gee, it might have something to do with you charging the same price for a non-physical copy as you do for a digital copy.

If digital copies of books were $2-3 I'd probably buy them in droves. But at $10-15 a pop, I just go to the library.

A founder spurned is a founder burned.

Seems like it should be pretty easy to give the founders something extra for signing on so early.

Not getting into this deeply (been playing for months now as alpha) but well a lot of people are mad. They can't even give out the founders packs that people paid for... how do you expect them to give out extras? Some founders got 6 chests liked promised, some got none, some got dozens. Each chest had random item and 1-50 gold each. All mine had the lower amount, but I have guild members that got upwards of 200-300+ gold before they hit quest one in the game. Econ got screwed and will take a bit to recover.

So it sounds like basically they are completely disorganized and have no clue WTF they are doing?

Now, see, that right there's a hard call. I'd say if she's got her back to you, go for it. You want to stay away from that mouth, IMO.

Seriously, WTF? Unless it's a setup and all parties are in on it.

I've worried about pranks like this one (freakin' awesome as it is. That little girl is an awesome actress). What would happen if someone hauled off and punched the girl? Or if someone had a heart attack?

Something like this is funny, but still reasonably safe. Don't push the red button!

Also, I thought this was well done. Also totally safe. They must have practiced for days to get the timing right. Possibly NSFW.

Halo homage spotted in Destiny.

Now that's odd. There's no connection between the two. Whatsoever.

I guess the real question is, why did it take this long for people to find it?
