Yeah, no. You can't make the case that despite controlling the top officers and the budget that they are somehow powerless. Not after all the other depts with similar legacy that have been gutted and rebuilt. If you don't like the way things are now it's because the people the govt hired to run it aren't doing their job.
You do know how crown corps work right? There's always a handler, a go-between with the "top officers and everyone else" telling them that "it's always been done this way, and so on." And they "shouldn't rock the boat." Welcome to the CBC, CRTC, and if you live in Ontario the LCBO.

The conservative govt controls the CBC purse strings and it's board of directors were completely replaced with conservative loyalists. If you have issues with it talk to your boss.
Yeah that doesn't really mean shit, the board of directors is about as useful as the crown chair at the CRTC doing a proper job instead of the miles of bureaucracy under them, where decades of industry insider have stacked them.

Every time someone goes to cut the CBC's funding, the libs and ndp throw a hissy fit over it. The CBC served a purpose, once, long ago, when there was no one else willing to setup transmitters in the asshole of nowhere. Not the case anymore.

You can use a VPN to get it unlocked. Plenty of people have already done so according to Bioware's forum. These people are also going to be playing Monday morning, as they'll just pretend to be in Japan or something.
Yeah you can, and origin support has already stated that it's perfectly fine to do so. Anyone who really wants to dig into it can just hit the /r/dragonage sub and take a search on it.

Yep. And for those that ordered from GMG, keys are out as well.

Yup. Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin, too. Some people come across as well nuanced. Adam Baldwin comes across as well read but a complete and total ass. Must run in the Baldwin name...
Oh don't worry, I'm sure that you're still happily cheering the anti-gg side that created a block list of 15k people, because they didn't want to hear the otherside of the argument. Remember that whole "which side really wants dialog on the problems..." yep it's not them.

Peh. Kyders law is based on physical disks, as more fabs move to NAND things will change, just like they did from single platter low density to single-high, double low-double high.

Hopefully New Vegas taught them a few things about difficulty scaling as well. While being some demigod in F3 was fun in its own way, NV did a much better job of making you feel vulnerable.

Well they did learn a few things apparently with Skyrim. The difficulty scaling was much better in that game then Oblivion or Morrowind that's for sure. Still I have much more faith in Obsidian "getting it right" on game and difficulty design then I do with Bethesda getting it right.

Bethesda's Fallout3 had mediocre writing at best. New Vegas improved on that a whole shitload, but its unrealistic to expect them to deliver something on par with Fallout2's phenomenal dialogue.
That would be because New Vegas was done by mainly the same people that did Fallout and Fallout 2, so no big shock that they did exactly that.

Kind of relieved. Why does it have to be set in one of the US cities? Couldnt they up the ante a little bit? Maybe let our hero travel to some more varied locations, you know like in Fallout2.

They hinted at "'Ronto" aka Toronto in The Pitt DLC. So who knows, there's lots of places that they could do.

No surprise. Anyone who believed this is an idiot.

Fallout 5 isn't happening.
Fallout 4 is though, there's enough information floating around showing that it's in production.

WoW is basically MMO light, but heavy on the digital crack content that power care-bears are so into. Kudos to the behavioral scientists at Blizzard for getting the digital crack forumla so tight.
Well be honest now. Skinner got it right, Blizz refined it. If it hadn't been so dumbed down by the time Cata came out, I'd still be playing. If they could recapture that feeling from TBC, I'd be back in a heartbeat. I don't regret the time I played at all, I made friends all over the place. I've met them when I've traveled, and I still chat with them via email, and IRC.

For someone like me who is extremely anti-social, and dislikes crowds it made a difference in my life.

Nah, I don't pirate stuff. I've thought about GMG, but did they send you the key right away? I'm worried that if I get it through GMG, they'll send the key on the day of release, which puts me in the same boat of having to wait five days for the thing to finish downloading.
All comes down to their release agreement date. Generally it's 1-3 days before hand sometimes, it's the same day or right on the hour of release.
