Awesome. Now make an MMO expansion much in the vein of JC2 MP (hundreds of players on a server) with no persistence please!

Blue you're not allowed to say "Super Bowl". Well only legally but the NFL lawyer mafia thinks otherwise. Did I just say it? Oh wait..

Wow this is surprising. A shame too. Say what you will about Planetside and H1Z1, SOE was one of the few MMO companies looking to do interesting things instead of pumping out traditional grindy MMOs.

This. I liked SOE.

This is great news. DMCA abuse harms gaming and is terrible PR.

Very tempted to buy it in the next few days. I read a review that said the game puts walls up to what made Dead Island games fun, but I'm seeing consistent player reviews in forums that say the game is fantastic and I enjoyed DI a lot. That graphic mod looks great too.

Yeah I can't stand it when people complain that a game is unoptimized and decry the developer because they can't run it well at max settings on their mediocre rig. That is self entitlement to a T.

Very glad to hear about the PC focus but of course for those laid off this is a difficult time. Best of luck to them.

I remember reading years ago that relocating is often a way for a business to clean house.. So I'd surmise that the layoffs were the intended result here, not so much the relocation.

Without faster broadband, new wearables and other devices are “simply gadgets and flashy, expensive toys for us to gaze at, marvel and wonder,” added Commissioner Mignon Clyburn.

Sure uh huh.

I spend A LOT of time reading books, listening to lore, crafting, etc.

Yes I found the writing and voice acting entertaining. Not condescending nor did I feel that it talked down to me.

The air drops are cool though. I personally don't mind if they can be bought but I'd also like a way to summon them for free - maybe once a day or after constructing a radio. The game itself is fun and the UI and performance are far better than FailZ. As long as the game is fun I don't mind them offering some pay options. I'm excited to play it for several hours today.

You are all a bunch of socialist control freaks. The nazi swat teams shouldn't exist in the first place.

These are different problems, no?

The two are associated, IMO. The fascism is type of socialism: 'national socialism.' The two rely on each other. Indeed we have a left and right wing in government who are partnered. It's not left vs right, it's left -and- right together, both of which are nationalist parties (control freaks). Topic for another discussion one day maybe.

Beamer wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 14:23:
I mean, if someone robs a store with an assault rifle, do you lessen the charges because you (a hypothetical you, not LittleMe) think more gun control is needed and therefore the gun shouldn't exist?

No, that's a different analogy.

Beamer wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 14:23:
No. The gun does exist, it's dangerous, and someone is exploiting that.
Many SWAT teams in the US shouldn't exist, but they do, and they can be very dangerous, particularly when there's a misunderstanding, and they're also very expensive to send out on call.

All true, but five years in the pen is far too much IMO. That's cruel and unusual, even if only half served.

You are all a bunch of socialist control freaks. The nazi swat teams shouldn't exist in the first place. 30 day sentence is plenty for someone to think about what they've done, especially after the whole trial fiasco. Maybe a repeat offender increase the sentence to six months in the worst case. Yes if someone is shot or killed then that might be grounds for holding the caller partially responsible but the swat teams take a lot of that responsibility for their own behavior too.

edit: this is a case where the feds make especially cruel and unusual punishments for people interfering with them. All that does is escalate things further over time (blowback).

I could see a 30 day jail sentence as reasonable but five years? Waaaay over the top and not beneficial to anyone.

I'm interested in the game but damn, $60 on release? Who the fuck are they kidding? Only console peasants pay that for a ~good (but not great) game. Sorry but there are many $10-$20 games on PC that are just as good or better. Price it at $30 on release and watch it sell like mad.

Probably why it's free. If you want a firearm, gotta pay hard real-world cash.

Well iirc they've said it won't be P2W so for now I'm giving them the benefit of doubt.

I'm getting signals from in front and behind. Hudson may be right.

A dedicated LoL line? What does this mean for Net Neutrality?

Very likely prohibited under Net Neutrality since it would give special, preferential treatment, to the game's traffic flow.

Net Neutrality is more about 'fairness' than innovation.

Exactly. It's the same as the Nazi's "Paper's please!!" but in wireless digital form. That information can and will be used against us and never in our favor. It's solely to incriminate us. It should be given constitutional protection under at least the fourth and fifth amendments.

They create fraudulent transmissions in public areas, intercepting and falsifying communications, and expect us to trust them. Using such a device will certainly harm their credibility. It's use is not benign nor is it in good faith.

Most people just want decent internet at a decent price which they can't get. Yet somehow they can in these heavily regulated....gasp! socialist democracies! Weird isn't it?

The US is more socialist, in practice, than them. We're one of the most socialist countries on the planet. Corporate socialism that favors the politically connected big corporations is what we have and are typified by the duopolies.

So your argument to me is flawed, pointing to other countries and saying how they're socialist and therefore socialism is better when they are actually less so in my opinion.
