Funny, i didnt noticed the first cut to the new redux version until i looked in the upper right corner, where it suddenly said "Redux". Yes, after a while i noticed some differences. When you know where to look.

I'll pass. Graphics from 2010 are apparently good enough for me


I was thinking the same thing. If you have the time to look at terrain and post cards you can see the difference. In a fire fight, not so much.

That's nice, they'll just move their servers elsewhere and people will keep using seedboxes and the darknet. Nice try though. Judges overstepping their bounds, hmm what else is new.

And, of course, there is absolutely no possibility of this order being abused by ABS-CBN, right? This nonsense needs to get slapped down by a higher court right quick!

Without having read the article, let me guess. 10GB monthly cap?

Oh wow, 150GB. That'd almost be worth something, if it didn't come with satellite's usual BS. But hey, at least they've realized that offering high speeds with a stupidly low cap is fucking pointless.

It's high speed if you consider 12mbps as high speed. It's also a promo price, regular price will be $100/month after the six month promo period ends. Not much of a bargain if you have any other broadband option at all.

Sounds like a Witcher version of Magic the Gathering, which sounds more fun than the drinking game in the first Witcher.

Way to overhaul the Patent system Congress! Oh wait!

Yep good ole Harry Reid deep sixed it in committee so as not to upset his lawyer buddies in the drug industry despite it having significant support in the Senate.

Hate to burst your bubble, but it wasn't Reid who deep-sixed Patent legislation:

The October 2,section on Market Successes in broadband should be pretty quick. The Market Failures part will probably run very long.

When it's free apps doing this shit that's kinda understandable. It's absurd, but today that is to be expected. If you're getting something for free, then you are the product, as they say.

But when it's a device for which you paid big bucks for, doing that is beyond unreasonable. I don't understand how there are no laws against this.

There aren't any laws against doing this for the same reason all but nothing has been coming out of Congress for the last four years; political grandstanding and the complete inability and unwillingness to do anything that might be able to be construed as capitulation by a future political opponent, no matter how important it might be to get done.

Awesome! I still have a bunch of my gold box games and associated decoder wheels, manuals and hint books. I also have my "Ultimate RPG Collection", which had 9 classic D&D CRPG games from the DOS days. OI got that back when CDs were still new tech and games still came on a slew of 3.5" floppies more often than not.

My fear is that it will return just as Atari returned, the same in name only with none of the qualities that made it popular originally.

NYT must be desperate for readers if they're sinking this low for headlines about Comic-Con.

Stopped reading at "being the chosen one... blahbluhblahbluh". Fuck generic RPG plots.

Too bad you didn't get to the part about it being a turn-based strategy game with RPG elements, not an actual RPG. This sounds a lot like Heroes of Might & Magic, which isn't a bad thing.

Peter Bright does not seem like a very happy person. Sort of the Ars version of Andy Rooney.

I place Galaxy Quest next to Serenity and The Fifth Element as three of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time.
