So botnets are used to attack US banks, and US banks use the government to attack the wallets of the people.

So apparently the central banks are merely a proxy. Botnets rule the world.

Also considering that the gaming console is slightly older market than the home computer market. Each console generation is a passing fad, but the console market isn't, imo. I don't see a reason for consoles to disappear yet.

Gotta camp the room to cap the point, but now will only be getting a fraction of the xp the defenders will be earning.

Might this bring an unintended consequence of people preferring to defend rather than attack? Then the war is over since everyone will sit in their base. The winning team is the defending team since they get so much more xp..

Raven wrote on Jan 9, 2013, 14:11:
Even a fraction of a second of invulnerability exiting a vehicle would be nice. I'm constantly getting weapon-locked because people jump out of my sunderers while I'm moving full speed and somehow get run over by me. Also, if I deploy on a steep incline, people will run up to resupply and spawn a bit too close to a wheel and get damaged by it even if it's parked.

Ugh. I hope they fix that.

High-volume shipments won't begin until next year, so don't expect anything in the consumer space until then.

2014? Ugh.. That chip sounds awesome.

If you have never used Linux before (namely Ubuntu) and never used Windows 8 before, how likely is the average joe going to switch to it just for gaming? [/quote:


IMO once you get even a little under the hood, Linux is vastly different from Windows. Grandma might not notice much difference but most people will. If you run into any issues, and you will if you are a regular gamer, you'll be diagnosing and fixing annoying issues and problems for hours or days. It can be a good gaming platform, but I've never used a Linux distribution that 'just worked' for gaming.

News Comments > THQ Investors Call Shenanigans
26. Re: THQ Investors Call Shenanigans Jan 4, 2013, 14:33 LittleMe
 
IMO a big part of the reason why investors behave this way is because 401k tax laws have grossly exaggerated demand for stocks. So when demand is high, it encourages more unethical behavior because there is extra money in the system that can be exploited. It also means perception drives value more than it should (thus the 90's stock bubble).

So when I hear people demonize all rich people just for being rich, it unnerves me not only because it's a false collectivist label, but also because the incentives for their behavior are ignored. It's not about how rich they are, it's about the system into which they are put. That is, a decadent corporate socialist, or fascist economic system.

Good news about improving the base game because that's why I stopped playing. I found no point in leveling up (PvE) since the very repetitive gameplay didn't keep my interest. Get a few more levels? Okay, do the same thing in a new area that is higher level. Rinse, repeat. Didn't play PvP but maybe that would be more fun.

As usual, Valve ignores the massive load during Xmas sales and lets everyone try to connect to their hideously overloaded servers...

Building and maintaining infrastructure for peak load times that happen ~1% of the time can be very, very expensive. Do you still want good sales and low prices? Learn to be patient and accept a few outages or slower downloads a few times a year during peak demand.

If you want mission-critical uptime, then expect to pay a lot more.

1. Online games shut out US sex offenders. Dec 24, 2012, 22:46 LittleMe
 
we must ensure that online video game platforms do not become a digital playground for dangerous predators,"

Here is yet more mixing of the terms 'offender' and 'predator', typical of the propaganda being spread by authorities being over zealous in their paranoid witch hunt. Many of these offenders are children who did harmless, innocent, acts such as e-mailing a photo of their own rear end to a friend and now will be falsely labeled by everyone for the rest of their life as a sex predator. Yes, I know sex violence is real and for the real predators out there there should be justice, but mixing the offender and predator terms doesn't help justice.

4. CA senator calls NRA's response to violent games 'pathetic and unacceptable'. Dec 23, 2012, 22:58 LittleMe
 
Any congressman or senator claiming moral authority on this matter had better not be voting to support war or military efforts abroad. The vast majority of gun violence in our society is committed in our name by the federal government in other countries. Not only that, they systematically train young men to shoot to kill and herald it is a noble and great thing. They should see the log in their own eye.

How are landline broadband caps such a red flag when the entire cellphone industry is based around data caps? Is wireless data really so much more precious than wired?

On the spectrum, it sure is. Wired bandwidth is not really as big of an issue as this politician makes it out to be.

IMO he's looking for a backdoor way into regulating the Internet under pretenses that most people won't oppose. First it's this harmless thing like this that few object to. They get settled in for a few years and then ten or twenty years from now it turns into a "War on the Internet" with a broad unconstitutional federal witch hunt. As if this law would be constitutional anyway. I don't think it is.

The study found that broadband providers have enjoyed increasing profits and decreasing costs, to the point where many are seeing “gross margins as high as 95 percent,” by some estimates. “For these companies, selling broadband packages even to the heaviest users is still quite profitable,” researchers wrote.

Sounds like their government-backed franchises are no longer needed since their profit margins are so high. The whole point of getting these sweet franchise deals was that the profit margins were too low and that the only way they could provide service is if they had a monopoly.

I'd only support this law if it exclusively applied to providers that operate under the benefit of franchise agreements.

4. U.S. Secret Service Bans Certain Gold and Silver Coins On eBay. Dec 18, 2012, 13:41 LittleMe
 
Some great quotes in this fine article.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

“It’s a loser’s game to suppress private money that is sound in order to protect government-issued money that is unsound,” writes Seth Lipsky in the Wall Street Journal.

We aren't free as long as we play with this unsound monopoly money controlled by a very secretive banking cartel.

Oh, and...

the U.S. Secret Service is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the nation’s financial infrastructure

There's a good laugh for ya.
