Cook is the dangerous party, imo...If I discover a business doesn't want my business for whatever the reason, do I...

a) Find another business run by someone who appreciates my business and will value it

or

b) Take the businessman who doesn't want my business to court to force him to do business with me...?

If you said "B" you can join Tim Cook in the corner with his dunce cap in place...;)

According to the GLBT alliance, the only group in the US that does not have the right to be offended is the 98%-99% heterosexual majority.
You really don't understand what that law does, do you?

It legalizes discrimination against anyone as long as you claim you hold a "sincerely held religious belief" that prevents you from treating someone you don't like/don't want to like/looks or acts different than you with any respect whatsoever. It will be especially hard on people in small and rural communities where there may only be one place to get a type of product or service.

is Bloodbone as hard as Bloodborne?

Blood Bones (or Bloody Bones, Blood/Bone, etc.) could be a fighting game title.

Or a fast food sim...

200+... I realize that's a selling point for a lot of people... But holy crap, even one quarter of that is too much for me... Unless the combat (where you spend most of the game) is amazing, anything over 20 hours starts to bore me... Add that to my inability to stick to one game at a time, I have a ton of half completed games...
It's 200+ hours if you do everything. You don't have to do everything.

My SteelSeries mouse has been fine, but I'll never use their drivers again. They released a version that completely trashed my Windows 8 install (as in: made it unbootable - requiring me to do many hours of recovery).

They released a fix, but the damage was done.

I'll avoid that brand in future.

I don't like them because they bought Ideazon and then killed development of the Z-engine software for the MERC keyboard, which is my favorite gaming keyboard.

Microsoft must have a different definition of "stand-alone" for the Xbox One. I was able to get the F&F DLC for the 360 without any trouble. When I try to do the same for the Xbox One, though, it says "Bundle Only". WTF? That's hardly the free, stand-alone game Microsoft says is available until April 10.

Turns out there is a second entry for the free version in the Microsoft Store, one that you can't get to unless you go through the main Xbox One Games page.

So in that regard, no I donít think there are that many legitimate critiques on character design as all of it is just pure taste and preference based. You can like something, or you can dislike something. Feel free to walk away if you donít like it, but donít harass the creator for it and wave your political flag.

And bingo was his name-o!

When you own a pizza place and one day the mob enters your little shack, threatens you by saying if I donít stop selling pepperoni pizzaís theyíll do anything in their power to make sure you go out of business, then what should we call this? Blackmail? Censorship? Harassment? Extortion? or simply a trade embargo?

Fuckin' A, bubba! That's what tolerance is folks. You don't have to like it. You have to tolerate it. Free speech doesn't mean being free from being offended. So hate it all you like, just shut up about it already.

Amd wtf is with this site asking if you want to buy a license if you copy some text? Are they unfamiliar with Fair Use?
Too bad all the trolls making death and rape threats to female game devs don't feel as you do, Cutter. They don't want to walk away, they want to chase away everything they don't like.

I am cautiously optimistic about this one. I hope they have a beta test of some sort I can get into.

Hmm I don't know Lito, they didn't ultimate edition DA2 or Mass Effect 2/3 for that matter. It's weird, correct me if I'm wrong but they seemed to have stopped bundling Bioware DLC. They did bundle up Mass Effect into a trilogy but IIRC ME2 and ME3 are without DLC included. I suspect EA makes more money on the DLC separately so they keep doing it that way on purpose.




It makes sense. You discount the game down to 20 bucks or 10 bucks or whatever and people pick it up cheap... then they spend 30 dollars on all the full priced DLC and bring an otherwise bargain game almost up to the cost of a new price point.
They lose my money then. These days, I pretty much wait and only buy the GOTY version.
Same with me. I don't make enough to pay full price for a game, let alone an EA game that is sure to have an equal dollar amount, or more, in DLC by the time they're done milking a game.

I bought DA2 for my 360 when it was $10 - $15, then waited for Microsoft to have a sale on the DLC and bought a couple of those. Spent maybe $30 all together. I'll probably go the same route with Inquisition, starting when it gets heavily discounted around Christmas time.

The local police had to crib the letters because they don't have any idea how a Stingray works. I'm waiting for the fake cell phones to come out that flood Stingrays with worthless data.

ItBurn wrote on Mar 24, 2015, 09:39:
The fact that it specifically has "Elder Scrolls Online" in the title makes me wary... Is this a general Elder Scrolls lore book, or is it about the mmo's world? It kinda makes it seem like ESO is happening in a different parallel universe than the other games. I'm not interested in ESO, I am however really interested in Elder Scrolls.
I, too, am wary of the Online designator in the title. It would be pretty cool to have all of the books that are scattered throughout the non-online games gathered together into a single source. I know I am not the only one that actually looks for and reads every book I can in the games!

With the number of real issues and problems out there already Boing Boing came up with this as an article? I thought sweeps happened in February and only on ad-supported television.

To paraphrase Chun from Remo Williams, "I see the deadly EA has done its evil work."

There isn't a franchise created by an acquired development studio that EA can't turn to shit, usually right before shutting down that same studio.

Lindsey Graham is a Luddite of the first order and his membership on the Senate Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law shows just how screwed up things are in Congress, particularly now. I would not be surprised to learn that he still uses a VCR that is still flashing 12:00.

Seeing as how it's from Kotaku, it probably failed because there wasn't enough feminism and too many white men.

Or something. Am I doing this right?
No, you're not doing this right. Try reading the article first and then make your snarky comments. FYI, no feminism mentioned, although Gabe Newell is and he's about as white as it gets.
