"Give us total authoritarian power to do anything we damned well please, or really bad things will happen!"

Yes, it sounded like a veiled threat.

Next Xbox simply to be named Xbox.

Yeah, that's not going to go well.

Ebay: "For sale! Xbox, hardly used, 10 games, 2 controllers included! $149!"

Oh, you expected it to be the NEW Xbox? Sorry, it was the old one.

Exactly this is a terrible name for the new console. Making one word mean two different things just confuses and angers people and will certainly lead to upset consumers buying the wrong games and accessories. Many, dare I say most, console consumers are not technologically savvy.

"Excuse me, where are your Xbox games?" asks customer

"Right over there" says the clerk

"No, I mean Xbox not xbox360" says frustrated customer

"Oh, these are xbox games" says frustrated clerk that usually sends people to the 360 shelf but knows some want new xbox games.

or...

"Is this xbox compatible?" asks customer

"Yes, it is." says clerk.

Customer gets home, opens package, and product doesn't work because it's for the wrong 'xbox' and goes back to store. Store refuses item return for opened package and insists the product was accurately sold as xbox compatible.

Fail Microsoft marketing.

I try to like this game. Really to love it. But I just can't get into it like Dark Age of Camelot got me or even WoW really. When I finally got in a good guild and started raiding high level stuff WoW was an absolute blast. It got old like anything but GW2 doesn't get me even a little bit interested. I hate the how the skill (non)trees work. As much as I like their take on questing and whatnot I miss the standard quest lines and being able to run instances with a group.

Yeah they got so focused on MMO and lost focus on three more important letters, fun.

What I'm wondering now is, if it's non-transferable and THQ is no more, then what happens to the game? South Park studios will get their money one way or another (probably), but does the game end up in limbo? I was actually looking forward to playing it... And what about Obsidian?

Speculation=1. Then the rights revert to South Park Digital Studios. SPDS then would have a strong incentive to publish it themselves, strike a new deal with another publisher or maybe Obsidian could publish it.. Hard to say for sure. But THQ will probably continue in some skeletal form just to publish the game since they'd net some cash out of it.

So very sad for the people of Cuba who were played as suckers so long ago. They cheered while establishing a tyrannical ruling elite. They continue to pay the price for their ignorance.

If posting pictures (that you own) of people without their explicit permission became a crime, it would instantly kill Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, and any other photo sharing site.

You only own the photo but not the rights of that person's likeness, in many circumstances (or circumcisions).

Anyway, this really needs to become classified as a crime.

I'm pretty sure it is already a crime. IIRC, if the photo is not in a public place or there is reasonable expectation of privacy, you must have signed consent to exhibit nude photos of someone.

The fact they're not willing to show off any gameplay or technical videos is an obvious warning sign.

Biden rocks. Pitch perfect response. I don't agree with this administration on everything,butility I appreciate that they are reality based for the most part.

He's just picking his fights. Taking on guns -and- video games at the same time is probably one that can't be won. The likes of Biden aren't going to give up so easily on regulating games. If not him, then the next one handed down.

The Fedora Project blah blah blah blah blah of Fedora 18 ("Spherical Cow"). Heck, we'd even say that getting this release to you has been a mooving experience.

Fedora blah blah blah blah blah blah blah . :-D But no bull: Spherical Cow, is of course, Fedora's best release yet. You'll go through the hoof when you hear about the Grade A Prime F18 features. You can always cownt on us to blah blah blah blah blah .

Enjoyed playing for a while but found the underlying game very repetitive for PvE. New level with new monsters and new area, but exact same gameplay.

Been enjoying the BR of Aliens lately. Such a classic movie. Too bad this game will probably suck.

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.

No judge is going to rule otherwise, and the EFF / ACLU know this full well, which is why they'll never touch this entire thing with a ten foot pole.

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.
