According to the plan, after four warnings ISPs are to begin taking "mitigation measures," which range from throttling a user connection to filtering access to websites until users acknowledge receipt of "educational material."

lol this is funny.

Yeah it's never been too much different. You are right. (edit: there are some notable exceptions where people did live free)

America's best years were its "socialist" years.

We've never been more socialist than we are now. Corporate socialism is rampant. Under the guise of doing 'good things,' Socialism creates tremendous suffering. That includes the period after WW1.

Instead of calling it 'screwing the poor to while the rich richer' that I hear so many people say, I word it like this -- Enslaving the masses at to serve a ruling elite. That way it's not just an argument about who has money and who doesn't but also about who is free and who is a slave (to the system). This situation isn't just about money, to me. It's about human dignity. It's about the violation of human rights, about inalienable rights.

That's what this story is really about. They can spy on us and treat us like cattle and violate our human rights. They treat us with lack of empathy, with disregard of human dignity. Treating it as a 'rich & poor' issue belittles what's really happening.

98% of this Orwellian distopia can be quashed simply by ending the Fed and going back to a commodity-backed currency (gold/silver). As it is now, they can print up as much money as they want to spy on us in ever increasingly clever ways. Price inflation is the hidden tax used to pay for the militry indstrial complex. They do it this way to hide the sticker shock and also because the Chinese, among others, are also paying for it by buying up so many t-bills.

News Comments > Fallout: New Vegas Bonus Missed by 1 Point; Obsidian Layoffs

I hope Obsidian can survive this and hopefully make another Fallout game, improving upon NV. That said, NV sure was buggy at release. But, they had huge bugfix patches with their DLC releases that were very welcome. I found NV's world not as good as F3's. Bethesda is one of the best at creating open-world sandbox RPG's. I'm sure the NV story and rpg elements were improved on F3's, but the gameplay didn't feel better. It was Fallout 3 in a more bland environment and the 50's motif was de-emphasized. I like NV, just not as much as F3. I have yet to play OWB, which sounds like it would be right up my alley with lots of exploration. I will buy Obsidian's next Fallout game as long as it stays hardcore like NV and isn't dumbed down.

Are there any more singleplayer/LAN coop games like Din's Curse? Those are the kinds of games I am interested in.

I presume you've heard about http://www.grimdawn.com/ ? Not out yet. And if I were them, I'd wait at least 2 months after the D3 release.

... or concrete details.

Really though, so far all I can say for sure about BG:EE is that it's going to feature the original games (duh) and 'likely' built in support for the existing community mods.

It's not that I don't want to get excited about this. It's that nothing of this announcement replaces, or adds (yet) to the product I already have installed.

Exactly. Due to how the community has already modded the game to create a highly 'extended edition' they should have released much more specific information, even if only intended but not yet implemented. I think what we want to hear is a truly modernized but completely faithful update of the game. Not just widescreen support and a handful of bug fixes.

Has this guy ever heard of taxes? No, they don't pay you for forcibly taking taxes either.

This is worth maybe $5 to me. Not $15. The Karkand maps are outstanding BF maps so I'll forgive DICE this time. I would much rather see DICE release a BF3 expansion that is like the Project Reality mod for BF2. I still play PR.

It's being released on Steam, but according to one of the devs: "I think it's safe to say that LoG will not be Steam exclusive."

And how do you plan to do that? Look at yourself. You couldn't drive a wheelchair.

i don't understand why people getting high and mighty about rental or second hand games,it 's not crime to do that or is it? i don't know.

The industry is just mad because they don't get a slice of that pie. You get to sell it once, sorry. Most of us don't like Gamestop because, well, they rip people off. Used games are supposed to save you money. Charging $5 less for a used game than for a new game is ridiculous.

IMO that's a fallacy. The gamer who wants to resell the game would probably not buy it in the first place if he couldn't resell it. It seems to me they are chasing their own tail if they want to get rid of the second hand games market. The consequence of destroying the second hand market will certainly have a negative impact on firsthand sales. I guess they've done research on this perspective but I still think that the second hand market helps in an important way and not everyone will pay full price.

Thats why i wanted to invest in valve YEARS AGO. Stingy mofos wanna stay private.

This is a good reason why STEAM is still a good product. Going public skews executive interest towards 'perceived value' over actual value. One reason is because tax laws incentives that pollute the natural supply/demand ratio for stocks. It's all mostly a show now, not a real free market, but rather a corporatist gambling arena.

I'm saddened there's no expansion or DLC to copy what Project Reality offers. I think there's money to be made in making PR style gameplay more accessible in BF3. But Armored Kill might be fun for a while. The Karkand maps are amazing and might save the game from oblivion.

I however can't play BF3 for more than a round or two due to the constant visual blurring, shaking and other effects. It's just too much and it's hard on my eyes because they are trying to focus it out but it can't be. The game gives me visual or a sort of motion sickness because of the over-the-top visual feedback effects.

I'm back to playing BF2:PR and some ARMA2 also.

"The alternative to the hierarchical power structure is based on mutual aid and group consensus. As hackers we can learn these systems, manipulate these systems, and shut down these systems if we need to."

'Group consensus' is not anarchist. That's collectivist. In any case, he didn't have group consensus, except his tiny group of hackers. His own actions were anti-group consensus.

In any case, I'm not so sure I believe his portrayal by the FBI or the arstechnica. Did ARS use third party sources or just the FBI mouthpiece?

This is actually the problem in our county. You guys cheer your side like a sports team. Meanwhile, both sides are for whatever makes them money and keeps them in power. And you're all so fired up fighting over whose side is better that you can't see them laughing at you.

Well said. And Cutter that last post was not true in so many ways. How can democrats be for working people and small business when they support for bailouts, endless military wars, wars on drugs, wars on piracy, pursue continuous cronyism under the guise of 'consumer protection', proceed in unprecedented inflationary spending, etc etc.. The list goes on. Democrats are part of this fascist system of tyranny. Not all, but most. Same with nearly all Republicans.

It's not about collective identity at all. Be it Democrat or republican. It's about the individual representatives, their actions and their hiding under the collective party association blanket for protection.
