4. Global Warming, Video Game Violence Deniers Roll Dice With Science. Sep 22, 2013, 13:34 LittleMe
 
The word deniers isn't scientific and neither is the article. The word deniers is used to associate them with holocaust deniers. It's also a sort of character assassination. Being skeptical IS science.

A big reason why there is so much consensus on anthropogenic global warming is because there is a LOT of money to say so. As in many, many billions every year. What happens to your scientific career if you come out skeptical about AGW? Your career is probably finished.

I guess personally I feel there is some AGW, but the issue has been blown way out of proportion and the greedy powers-that-be are scurrying to scam the world population on the most expensive con-job ever on AGW. There are much bigger issues looming over us, in my opinion.

Awesome!! Lots of questions here.. Will it be completely free or will there be micro transations? Are they handling this as a commercial venture? Are they re-working the low quality net-code and poor in-game security that Crytek is known for? How will cheaters be detected and handled? Will it have something like Mumble to handle in-game voip? Are they hoping to do 4km maps also?

Btw, this press release needs to stress the PvP focus of the game. The press release currently comes across as 'yet another fps game' without that mention. But clearly PR is a cut above the rest for PvP as it is so very NOT casual in its gameplay.

Looking forward to learning more and seeing some alpha-footage!

edit: AAS is fun, but Insurgency is where PR really stands out. Hoping for an improved insurgency mode when possible!

Edit 2: Answer as to why it's free:
because in the CE SDK, the Terms say that you cant use it for commercial projcets, unless you purchase the license. and frankly, millions of € ist whet the team has spare

2. No plans for GTA V on PS4, says Rockstar. Sep 18, 2013, 23:28 LittleMe
 
how a potential sixth instalment in the GTA series would look like on PS4.

Um, the headline is fail?? Reading the article it seems clear that Dan Houser was talking about GTA VI, not V. Move along, nothing to see here.

Maybe part of the reason for the delay is that we are getting a much better next-gen treatment for PC too...? We'll see.

How convenient they got exactly what they wanted to regulate our game playing. Get ready for our militarized police to start breaking down doors to rip away the controller from your ten year old. Then CPS will make sure you won't harm him/her any more!

Talk is cheap. Valve needs to start their own linux distro: Valve Linux or Steam Linux or something. Then they can tightly tune it for gaming. The writing on on the wall for Ubuntu is who is losing money.

And this is where we are headed. You can now be arrested at any time, for anything if someone in charge decides they don't like what you are doing. All they have to do is call it some form of terrorism.

I think its safe to say, "the damage is already well done", that they made plenty of money from the game in the maybe 10 years it lived.

Maybe it's a good thing for PC gaming in general. The market is more diversified now and there are good or even a few great alternatives to WoW.

Well since it's a PvE focused game, the missing campaign is a glaring omission. I've been yearning to play the big island and now I can go see it so... see ya!

Without reading the link I will guess that a lot of work went into designing around many specific aspects of IB. Plug a Haswell into it and almost certainly wouldn't work.

Are you sure GTA IV is to scale? San Andreas was bigger than GTA IV? No way I would guess!! But that guess is only based on that GTA IV came out after San Andreas and games usually get bigger in time I think.

IIRC yes SA was bigger than IV. R* even said that on IV's release.

2. Of course NSA can crack crypto. Anyone can. The question is, how much? Sep 9, 2013, 13:08 LittleMe
 
Strawman argument. The article comes off with a mild 'so what its no big deal' tone.

The fact that they crack crypto is not the controversy. The controversy is the mass data collection that dragnets everyone. The other controversy, among many, is that they are paying businesses for back doors to their supposedly secure encryption. We are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. We are supposed to not be searched and seized without due cause. It's a human rights concern.

anyone with access to that research can—at least some of the time—crack VPNs, they can crack HTTPS, they can extract data from iPhones.

So what. They are doing it on a more massive scale than anyone else. Orders of magnitude more. History has shown that government is not to be trusted with this degree of power.
