Did they ban The Wire too? They kill prostitutes, women, cops, and women cops undercover as prostitutes in that show.

Once I can see. Not excusable but I can understand it. Your staff are lazy or under trained. Management doesn't understand or take seriously their IT needs. Corporate culture has things paralyzed. Something let standards slip. Shouldn't happen but it does in poorly managed companies, I get it.

But ANOTHER major hack? 3 years after the last one which even got congress involved they still haven't locked their shit down? Now we've gone from inept to serial and dangerous incompetence. I don't know how the laws work for this stuff, especially in the modern "get out of jail free card" corporate era, but if there is a book it should be thrown at them. Out of a cannon.

Nothing will happen to them as long as they donate to the right politicians.

Yes, the mission with stalking the celebrity is really gross, easily the worst part of a game with an already awful plot, but that's the only thing particularly bad that I remember.

Seriously that's the only "bad" thing you remember? Paparrazzi/stalking is worse than the mission that you torture the fuck out of someone?

Celebs are just more important than other plebs. Everyone knows that.

I won't fund with Indiegogo as they give the cash regardless of it hits a threshold goal or not. Kickstarter is far superior.

Indiegogo is more of a begging type site than for backing projects in my opinion.
Yeah but you get you cash back if it fails regardless if they make their goal or not.

Okay, not really. I guess DA:I is just that good.

Maybe because its a very simplistic game. You just cant compare a game like that to the sheer amount of time and effort it took to develop Dragon Age Inquisition.

You gotta be kidding right jdreyer?

I assumed he was being sarcastic.

Netflix accused of creating fast lanes “at the expense of competitors.”

Sometimes the FCC can be so dumb.

1. Netflix invested in these servers because the ISPs had weak infrastructure with poor caching.

2. Netflix servers in the ISP does not preclude any other company from doing the same.

Reports claim touchscreen laptops are to be phased out.

I dunno, mine isn't touchscreen, but one person I work with has one and swears by it.

So if half of all workers are replaced by robots in the coming decade what does that mean for the economy? Who's going to buy shit when they have no money?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_income

First I've read about this, although it's so obvious that I've come up with the same idea myself daydreaming about the future. It's interesting that hours worked only 5% when such a system was implemented. Given how much overwork Americans do, that's not a bad thing. And it's well known that an economy with a flatter income distribution is a stronger, more vibrant one since money is in the hands of people that must spend it. I can't see this becoming law in my lifetime, but I never thought I'd see a black president or comprehensive healthcare reform in my lifetime either.

I figured it was under attack last night when my dauhter asked me to fix the Internet. A pretty tall order. She couldn't log in and the X-Box 360 kept blaming the router.... even though M$'s website claimed all was well with Live I knew it wasn't.

An early Christmas gift from the Hacker Community? Thanks...

You would think that MS would have extra unused servers in Azure that could be designed to come online during heavy traffic to handle the load.

27 million? Wow, there really is no hope for humanity.

You have to remember kids are constantly being born into the world and LOL is videogames for retards, that's why it's successful. The same way MMO's are successful, they cater to people who can't play videogames to save their lives and hence are the lowest common denominator in terms of intelligence. Reflexes and intelligence are correlated, that's why games like Descent, fast paced FPS games like quake, the masses just can't handle them.

LOL and its ilk are actually pretty challenging to play against experienced players. It requires a deep knowledge of the game characters and their abilities, ability to think tactically, and reflexes to pull off the moves. Actually similar to playing Quake. I used to play DOTA, but don't any longer. I want to relax when I play games, and there's none of that in a very competitive game like LoL.

$2,500 is too low. Where's the options for $10k, $20k, even design a custom ship for custom pricing?

So much more room to fleece those who want to pay to win.

That's what I'm saving up for: $20K for the Star Citizen equivalent of the Star Destroyer.

If Pete kept doing the type of games he was known for on the platform he did it best on, I'd be happy. Instead he sold out to consolized crap with fable and some mobile godus.

I have no interest in what he does at this point. Go full PC populous/dungeonkeeper/syndicate/B&W/magiccarpet/ or retire.

What was the last good game he did? I thought Fable 3 was awful.
