Untiy, soon to be the most hated company having anything to do with gaming.

Fewer than the number of us that waited to see if Fonzie would make it when it was first aired!

Can we just agree that payment of any kind for good reviews and hating/harassing/discriminating against people for any reason are all bad so we can move on to something else now?

He went into that study to see if active games would replace regular games and found out they didn't. I hope he wasn't given a lot of money to do this.

The idea of aggregating review scores into an average or mean is a good one. Having a secret formula that includes unknown levels of weighting for some scores over others to come up with a final score, not so much.

There is definitely confusion on the part of those claiming a consensus on violent video games causing aggression.

It isn't actually Snapchat that got hacked. It is a third-party service that stores Snapchat photos that Snapchat has no control over. This also shows that using third-party apps in conjunction with other third-party apps can end very badly.

50GB of disk space?!? If your ISP employs a data cap you'd better plan well in advance for the download. I realize the download won't be 50GB, but it won't be less than 30GB.

Just did an install of Foxit, no Foxit Cloud install/don't install option. Opened and saved some PDFs, no Foxit Cloud in sight. Methinks someone set something up and forgot about it from not using it.

Yes, Foxit should have made the installation of their Cloud service optional. However, it does have its own uninstall in the Windows Control Panel, as explained in the article Blue linked right below the Foxit one.

Got my Shadowrun games on GOG. Since I had already purchased Dragonfall, GOG was kind enough to throw in the Director's Cut version for free when it was released.

It is a gathering of essays on GamerGate by a game developer, who happens to be a woman, who would only do it if The Escapist did not reveal the names of any of the participants. I find that completely understandable, given the current level of over-reaction to anything related to this.

The fact that these women feel they need to keep their identities hidden when saying anything because they fear reprisals, up to and including having their pictures and addresses posted for others to use in harassing them for their expressing views, is just plain sad. It's ironic that the behavior these women are so fearful of absolutely confirms everything they're speaking out against as women gamers and game developers.

Free update to the Director's Cut if you bought this on GOG.com. There's a redemption code at the bottom of the Shadowrun page in your library.

Personally, I don't consider any of the coverage of video games to be journalism. At best, it is more like fanzines were back in the 80's. Most of it, however, is just parroting publishers' and developers' press releases. In any case, none of it is remotely close to journalism.
