Certainly no offense meant to Blue for posting the story, but I stopped reading at "giving his outlook on such litigation." I could care less what the defendant opines about the litigation he is facing, particularly when his strategy is outlined as "throw piles of money at making sure they don't get a cent." Personally, I'm more interested in whether this case has merit, and this story doesn't offer any illumination on that question.

"by or through making, using, offering for sale, selling and/or importing Android based applications for use on cellular phones and/or tablet devices that require communication with a server to perform a license check to prevent the unauthorized use of said application"

That seemed pretty clear to me... And while I wouldn't jump on the 'All software patents are evil' bandwagon, this kind of patent is annoying...

So while I think some software patents are valid (no, I don't have examples), I wouldn't mind the practice being abolished... And the money spent on tracking down plagiarism (of code) instead... Because I and millions of others have had original ideas that someone already thought of : )

In other news, the Guild Wars 2 beta is alright.

I may be pretty damned disappointed with the game, but their support (I'm assuming the other 99.999% of it is the same) was good... Processed my refund request in 3 minutes flat... No muss, no fuss...

This is fantastic... On the old days thet would release that unfinished class to E V E R Y O N E on a later PATCH. YES. A PATCH. NOT DLC. A PATCH.

Dont forget everyone who likes this game will get RAPED by PAID DLC. I will not make the same mistake with Borderlands 1. I will buy the game a year and a half later as a GOTY for 5 bucks with all DLC.

I'll never ever ever ever buy a game at launcha again. NEVER. PERIOD.

EDIT: Of course they announced on Twitter they just began making DLC!!!! Why not fixing the bugs that slipped through gold (of couse they game will have bugs, remember Borderlands 1? It still needs an external config tool made by people to improve the game) Of course they can make further changes to the game!!!!!!!!!!!!

EPIC RANT hahahahahaha Middlefinger

I also miss the old days when new content (not just fixes) came in patches... Companies of old, were so damn happy you bought their game, they wanted to keep you as a customer (even when they weren't getting much extra from it)...

As for being 'raped' by DLC... Not so much... DLC is optional (for me), so if I pick it up (and that's very likely - I enjoyed all the non-arena DLC for Borderlands), it'll be at $3 each, or less... Just like I did with Dead Island's Ryder White this last week... Which was worth $3, but not much more ; )

As for fixing bugs... I didn't really take 'being done' meaning that won't happen, though their wording sucks... And the lack of support for Borderlands sucks more... I don't need what the config app adds, but I do appreciate the options, and the fact that they never fixed this shit (including font sizes for extra 'affix' guns, and not being able to hover over the sniper weapon level bar) is disgusting...

I'll still throw my money at them, near launch (shortly before for the inevitable discount & 'VIP' shit), but having just stopped playing a session of the first, which clocks me in on steam at 238, I can't imagine not getting my money's worth.

Interesting how open they're being with the intent, and timeline...

As if, they're trying to educate the ignorant masses, that would normally bitch about DLC that is developed before launch : )

Here you go guys, the reward for buying Diablo3! Now everyone knows PC gamers will buy always online DRM and now everyone will implement it!

Hope D3 was worth ruining the experience of PC gaming.

Not surprised at the comment... Really not surprised at the person...

Ya know, because D3 was the first to do this...

Glad people are posting what they are buying - I had forgotten to grab the DLC for Dead Island, and there is only 3 hours left...

Ya, I had a very similar experience (saw it on a friends bought list, not here)... And grabbed the same one...

Looking forward to trying it... Hope it's worth the $4 I didn't spend on Vessel instead...

I don't understand why Valve doesn't have 'add to cart' links on the main page... I bet that would single-handedly solve all their major sale bandwidth/overload issues...

Also bought From Dust, Ys: Origin... and would really like the new Spellforce 2 to go back on sale... Downloading has been kind of crappy, though expected... Will maybe try one of em out tomorrow ish...

I hope everyone bought Trine 2 when it was on sale yesterday - what a gorgeous and nifty game. I am not one for sidescrollers, but the game's originality in design, smart co-op play, and its beautiful art keep me interested.

I bought it at (I think) full price, many many months back... That's a company I want to support (I also really enjoyed the Shadowgrounds games).

Ironically, I didn't load it up and play it (a little) until last week...

The one and only game I went into this sale wanting... And steam gives me errors while trying to buy it (not the first time)...

-Alamar

Which one? I'll buy it for you and you can paypal me the money (or gift an equivalent game when Steam is working again for you).

Thanks for the offer, but it had already expired when I posted... Otherwise I wouldn't have cared as much, since I would have had other ways to do it (like what you suggested).

Don't recall ever hearing about this, but we surely need more iso action RPGs : )

Little worried about the console direction... Touting 'local coop!' doesn't help... But at least it looks like the person joining has their own gear (unliked DS3).

Graphically, I liked the environments, but the font bugs me for some reason (both damage numbers, and especially items on ground).

Hmmm... Wonder if it's been long enough, that I could finally replay this game... And instead of the sneaky/stealthy/one-shot... Go for the guns a blazin psycho...

As for on topic... I wonder what the boss fights will be like... /duck

As for Silent Hill... Ewww... I thought the movie was crap... Which is partly due to knowing NOTHING about the game... But that kind of makes my point for me; it shouldn't be a requirement for a good movie.

In its termination notice, the company suggested the Facebook incident was part of a pattern of strict behavior on Van Ness' part; she had previously asked a Cisco employee not to take photographs of the class while it was in session.

Really? That is a pattern of strict behavior? Asking somebody not to take pictures during a Yago class. As a fellow student, I would be annoyed if some random person was taking pictures of me in an awkward position.


Everything about that comment is just stupid!

Agreed...

This may seem unrelated, but people (generally adults) complain so much about 'kids today' (and have been for generations)... I totally agree with that, but holy hell, so many adults are freaking kids today : )

As a parent, I'm trying to teach my child that different homes, businesses, schools, etc... Have different rules... And this situation is no different... If the rule is to leave your distracting shit at the door, grow the fuck up and do it.

Soooo...I don't even know where to start or what to say that hasn't been said already about this franchise since 2007.

I just die a little inside with each modified new release they put out for 59.99 each year and break sales records.

Gotta give em props (whatever that means heh)... They did episodic gaming 'right'... By right, I mean, yearly, and making a wad of cash ; )

Fantaz wrote on Jul 10, 2012, 01:36:
The Game Informer headline reads "Rockstar Opens New Toronto Studio", which is misinformative because they're opening another studio in Oakville (probably next door) and not exactly in Toronto (maybe far suburbs of Toronto). It's like half-way between Silicon Knights and Ubisoft Toronto. If they close the Vancouver studio they may as well just rename to Rockstar Canada, (or Rockstar Oakville) since they're not exactly in Toronto.

Good to know... I loathe Toronto, but I'd be willing to work in Oakville : )

Having actually read (gasp) the page, I fully support this...

But I'm not silly enough to think they're doing it to help hobby/indie developers out...

They're doing it, because they're losing a lot of money, both by the approval process, and the rejection of games that will sell well.
