I find it amusing that they need always-on to fit their universe in, when the previous one fitted into about... 48k was it?

It's like rain on your wedding day...

Did you just quote Alanis Morissette?

Solo online mode will still exist. God everyone freaks out about the dumbest bullshit.

What part of offline, as in not connected to the net at all, and always-on DRM did you not understand?

God, fanboys really are the worst.

Well in his defense, the original Elite had always online DRM.

Oh, wait.

Carmakers promise they'll protect driver privacy -- really.

And I believe them when they say they'll protect all that GPS location data they collect. It'll be safe, in the cloud, the safest place in the world for data. Sssssh. Just don't tell the NSA.

AMD "Misspoke" Saying DirectX 12 Won't Work With Windows 7.

"That's right bitches, my homey M$ sez you gots to gets you Windows 8 if you wants DX12."

Luckily it will be five years at least before we see even one game that requires DX12.

a small pat on the back to MS for being successful by actually making and selling products that help our society rather than printing money by raping the planet. but only a small one.

With all the high profile failures and missteps (XB1, Surface, Win 8) it's surprising they've risen this high. Must be nice having a near monopoly on PC OS and office productivity software.

Sony executive explains why you can't change your PSN name.

"We don't want to make it so that you can go in, grief a bunch of people in Far Cry, change your avatar, change your username, go into CoD and grief everybody over there. We want to stop that."

This doesn't make much sense. Usernames are tied to accounts, so even if the username changes a bunch of times, the account will still rack up complaints if the user is greifing. Too many, and you get warnings or the banhammer. I'm thinking they're using this excuse in order to charge for name changes like XBox and generate revenue.

What a cluster. What the hell were they thinking? Ubi had a fairly decent rep until this point. "EA seems to be kicking ass, let's be more like them!" It would be interesting to know how/why they subverted their internal processes and allowed this to happen.

I thought that story would be crap, because Buzzfeed. But it was actually pretty good.

Leave it to Microsoft to drop the ball when they finally come up with something popular.

Nor have I. But she is apparently a Thai lesbian, meaning both female, gay, and a person of color.
Who has that on the BINGO board?

One of the very common things in discussions of late is the argument that something is alright because a person of that type did it (e.g., blah blah blah isn't sexist because a woman is ok with it, isn't racist because a black man said it, isn't homophobic because a transgendered individual said it, etc.)

Here was a a Thai lesbian engaging in racist, homophobic and sexist behavior.


This whole thing seems hard to follow as she was doing some seriously weird things.

The whole thing is very strange. I'm not even convinced this person exists as she claims to exist. Given the number of pseudonyms that she's written under, it's just as likely that this is yet another persona. And her hateful trolling goes back to 2003, but her first story was published in 2012? Writers I know have an unquenchable need to put there stuff out there, certainly some of her work previous to 2012 must exist somewhere out there, but there's no mention of it. Perhaps this is a psuedonymous series by someone already famous, a la Venus on the Half Shell?

TriForce releasing replica Halo plasma rifles at $600 a pop.

So, does it shoot actual plasma? For that price it had better.

Man, I miss 70s TV. I always remember my pop watching The Odd Couple and Barney Miller, and ma watching The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Maude, etc. and I always watched All in the Family and Kung Fu religiously.

Don't forget about the Rockford Files and Tom Baker's Dr. Who!
