Well with the first you needed several quarters before you got the full experience. End game was lacking though.

1. Cable Companies Are Astroturfing Fake Consumer Support to End Net Neutrality. Jun 7, 2014, 15:02 LittleMe
 
Let there be no doubt that pro-net neutrality has been funded by corporate monies for a long time now. Who do you think pays for all the supportive articles? Google/Amazon/ebay/etc etc etc.. Call them trade groups or lobbies or whatever you want.

It's an easy formula. Write populist articles that make it seem like the sky will fall while showing no actual law. "Save the Internet" - doom and gloom scare tactics. Both sides want the government on their side instead of a competitive open market. Corporate socialism at work.

Paragraph one addressed the story. Paragraph two addressed those who put most or all the blame on the corporations. Maybe the second wasn't a necessary stab but I wrote it anyway.

The systematic state surveillance in our country is more of a reflection of our socialist society than it is about the corporations who are forced to comply. Socialism is the inevitable product of thinking that the government needs to solve our problems. It is the product of 'my will be done' thinking and not 'thy will be done.'

There are those who use every opportunity to put all the blame on the corporations and none of it on the government because they are in denial that they also want the government involved in every aspect of our lives. They just want an enemy and corporations are the faceless enemy to boost their ego where they can be morally superior at every turn. Easier to put the blame on others rather than look at how they themselves try to control society through the violence (or threat of) of government control and use good-sounding intentions to do it.

Seriously. Netflix is playing them. End users are paying them. Yet they can't seem to scrape funds together for improvements?

Why would they make improvements when they can exploit their government-granted monopoly at both ends of their network?

Different network protocols. The XB1 controller uses WiFi-Direct, from what I understand. The 360 controller used a custom wireless protocol.

According to this page:

"The Xbox One controller does not use WiFi Direct for any of it's communication. The controller uses a proprietary wireless communication protocol that is optimized for gameplay and voice chat.

But again, a 'protocol' doesn't exclude the possibility we can use the same X360 wireless adapter on PC for the XB1 controller. The protocol is not determined by the wireless adapter but the drivers and software. Different frequency ranges however probably would exclude the possibility.

Here on this page:

All in all the Controller seems to be dual-band and even ac/a/b/g/n capable and seems to try to connect to the console via WPS/Wifi-Direct,

So the pc's USB wireless X360 controller adapter probably should or might be capable of working fine with the XB1 controller.

But no word on a wireless option, so at the moment, useless for me.

It might work with the same wireless PC adapter that the X360 controller used...? Not sure but it makes sense. Uses same wireless frequencies?

So why not enable them for the original controller? oh yea, to gouge your customers into buying the usb thingie. So stupid.

What? Enable what for the original controller? Oh you mean a usb cable for the otherwise wireless adapter for the original X360 gamepad?

Either way I'm happy for the X1 gamepad drivers. I've been wanting to buy one since they did improve upon it. Now I have a reason to buy it.

I enjoyed playing it but I didn't play very long either. I'd call it a more casual MMO shooter with a good loot system. My main problem was there just isn't that much variety but again I didn't play it into the high levels. The zone events (similar to Rifts) seemed the be the highlight and while fun at first they got repetitive to where I just stopped playing.

Corporate takeover? The NSA are feds. I'm guessing you and many millions of others voted for representatives that vote to keep the NSA and embolden them.

What would the government get or need from them? The encryption protocols used by TruCrypt aren't secret. AES is the govt. approved protocol (by the NSA) and Twofish and Serpent are both public domain.

They don't want to get or need anything from them except cooperation in making sure they can decrypt anything they want. That notion that big brother can decrypt whatever they want is entirely against what TC is for.

It's a fun casual-ish game.. Agreed it's too expensive and it's not good enough for me to devote enough time to justify such a high monthly fee.

The feds are working to ruin the Internet. Give them more control of it and watch how they'll further escalate an online war, all veiled with self righteous good intentions while creating many thousands of real life victims who were actually trying to help the common good by helping secure us all. The road to hell...

Without knowing much about her, she comes across as sexist too. Games objectify men too, but she doesn't seem to care about that. How many games portray men as being violet gun toting psychopaths?


its just another "poor me" type mindset, and the problem is that its wholeheartedly accepted, "justified" and even applauded - its the angry, active side of self-pity (which is always self-generating, self-reinforcing)

the issue is complex, because discrimination is real, and the effects can be devastating... but people who have suffered it and cant get over it tend to be insulted by people who have suffered it and can get over it, so they call them "cop-outs", or "part of the problem" etc., they derive self-importance and pride from being crusaders for the downtrodden, build their identity around it, so the issue gets even more complicated and so on

as usual, its all ego-trip bullshit...

Yes that is insightful. Yeah at least she thinks she knows who she is - one who opposes sexist games. That's ego. Also strengthens her ego in giving her something to oppose and an enemy. Also how she takes it so seriously. She apparently views herself as morally superior. Ego. The way she describes how she started was a reaction to the games portrayal of women is also egoic. The ego is reactive in that way. The ego tries to bring balance to imbalance but instead it unintentionally amplifies the imbalance by fighting and opposing it.

The shock rifle graphics look nice. I'm glad they aren't changing up the deathmatch formula of the game too much from previous UT's. I like UT3's weapons. UT3 did a lot right with weapons balance.

I freaking loved this game too. Very glad to see it getting some love from MS! Steamworks, wow. Main downside I found was when I played well beyond the intended endgame the AI got very repetitive.

sadly, there is also this.

This is not a game humans. You're fucked, you've enslaved yourselves, and now you're making video games about it.

Good link. I tend to agree. Word of advice, don't let it get you too upset. Watch and observe. It's their doings. They (the enslaved masses) know not what they do. They will suffer the consequences much more than those who are awakened to the systems of enslavement. I need to heed that advice too.

I like this quote in the comment thread on your link:

“Those who surpress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.” – John V Lindsey

But I would add to that quote like this 'Those who surpress freedom always do so in the name of good intentions, law and order.'
