But it comes with a "Cable for Windows".

That could mean anything!
It's a $0.23 USB cable that's grey, and has a MS certified sticker on it, that they're charging $29.99 for.

Nah it doesn't suck. If you're looking for a complete overhaul mod, look at Radious' stuff.

What happens with steam account once you die though? Can family take it over? Or do you have to plan ahead and make sure your passwords are accessible to whoever is left after you? And how would you facilitate that without it being a huge security risk?

This stuff doesn't worry me much yet, but I feel like it is stuff that is important to know. With more and more of our lives being digital.....
Good question, my will states that ownership of my steam library transfers to my sister and best friend. Should they both want it the number of games will be randomly divided between both parties. I'm sure that someone else has included this in their own will already and it'll probably hit the courts before I die.

Case law is going to catch up shatteringly fast to this without a question. It'll follow that consumer and federal laws(or state laws) will catch up fast once it starts hitting the courts as well.

My favorite part of their letter is:

"No group of authors as diverse or prominent as this has ever come together before in support of a single cause."

Yea... a cause that's about how much money you're making... real noble "cause". hehe.
Yeah that's pretty much what I thought, and they wonder why ebook piracy is through the roof. Gee, it might have something to do with you charging the same price for a non-physical copy as you do for a digital copy.

If #gamergate is just about journalism, why is Anita even factoring in? Why are people addressing her at all? She's not a journalist.
Journalists quote her, she writes opinion pieces and attempts to claim that they're journalistic in value. Something you may have forgotten, is media using ideas of another in order to bolster their own story make them included within it.

There's outrage now over something more minor, and the outrage is rarely very far from words about some woman's sexuality, which is why people argue. The anti gamers-gate aren't people that say "Video game 'journalism' is without problems" it's people saying "seriously, all your whining about journalism seems to be masking something else."

Why else would Anita Sarkeesian be so heavily mentioned? She's not a journalist.
Yep that's why anita went right off the bat making it about sexuality, femnism, and going right out into la-la land to make shit up to suit their agenda.

Not sure how much sense this makes for MS, but definitely a good deal for the founders of Mojang. Congrats!
Yeah I can't figure it out either. I mean sure, minecraft is interesting but I grew up and out of legos when I was around 10. I couldn't ever understand the appeal of it. But congrats for making something and getting bought out for an insane amount of money.

Former journalist speaks out on corruption "in gaming journalism" Yet another ex-gaming journalist speaks out on corruption.

One thing I've noticed in all of this is that the vast majority against GG are millennials. Who take whatever is dropped in front of them as the gospel truth. This is especially true of the third wave feminism, and current round of sjw's who seem to have leadership that goes off and on with the belief that those following only need to "listen and believe." Strange, we used to call those cults.

In other news, modern machines were spontaneously catching fire all over the world as unearthed ET cartridges which were auctioned off were used for the first time. AI specialists believe that the machines were committing suicide, in order to save themselves.

It seems to be a pretty bi-partisan thing. Old People would be the demographic I'd pin the complacency on.
Uh seriously? "Old people" are the largest voting block, old of course is subjective but generally considered anyone over about 40 these days. You want complacency? Look at the youth(18-30) voting block, it's dipped as low as 10%

I dunno. I just built a new rig - finally after the last 3 years - and I have an ADATA SX900 128GB that's 550/R 520/W and it doesn't seem to be a whole lot faster than my 7200 500GB WD - which is now my D drive. From the way everyone talks I thought it'd be like a night and day difference but it isn't. I'd say it's marginally faster - but that could just as much have to do with my new RAM, Mobo, etc. I wouldn't say someone *has* to get one. Particularly given the cost and the much shorter life span on them.

Thats weird Cutter. I use my SSD for the system disk, and my boot time is like a few seconds tops. Also the one HUGE game I have on it (DCS: World) loads like 4-5 faster at least. Although the load times of DCS on a traditional HDD were attrocious to say the least. So maybe you havent really taxed it yet?

Not like I've actually timed it, I'm just saying it doesn't seem all that much faster.
Might want to look at your configuration then man. I'm using exactly the same SSD and went from an original 1st gen vertex drive. Looking at boot times I went from:
HDD WD 7200RPM: 43.7 seconds
Vertex: 11.3 seconds
SX900: 7.3 seconds

App launch times - heavy WoW
52.1 seconds
23.9 seconds
13.2 seconds

There was a substantial difference even between current gen and 1st gen. Anyway my sister bought the thing for me, so I guess it'll either be good or shit.

Uh wha? Web game? Sorry, this is satisfying all of my Trek needs at the moment:

Tis a mod for Sins of a Solar Empire. Time to go kill the Borg at Wolf 359.
Yeah that's an excellent mod. Though I'd love to see another Bridge Commander game, or Klingon Academy game. I loved KA, the ginsu system was awesome--especially some of the later stuff.

Just a fyi, and gamersgate customers will probably get a personal 20% off coupon today. That knocks the price down to $39.99

Anyone taking the pre-order plunge? It's on for $40 at Get Games atm - as opposed to the normal $50 everywhere else.
I'm tempted, but considering the last two alien games I think I'll wait just to make sure there isn't a massive screw-over.

News Comments > Microsoft to Acquire Mojang for $2B?

Creston wrote on Sep 10, 2014, 17:32:
What? As of May 2014 (first link I could find, I'm lazy), Microsoft's market value was $343.82 billion. Do you seriously think Valve has 350 BILLION dollars in cash lying around? Steam made 1.5 billion dollars in revenue last year. I know it makes them insane amounts of money, but we're still talking massive levels of difference here.
Market value is different from capital value. But considering the other pies that they've got their fingers in? They could easily have ~200B in cash value assets as it sits right now. Usually when a company is selling, the market value is halved or cut down to 1/3 of the actual value.

It is true, Valve would cost a great deal more than 2bn. I'd be curious to know how much. I don't see that one ever happening. Kind of moot.
Wish I could find the statement, but it was more along the lines of he could buy either EA or MS with the current capital that valve has. Where as MS or EA would require asset offloading plus stock trades to make it happen, and as many people know--cash is still king. So are physical assets with purchases.

Wouldn't MS be better off trying to buy Valve, acquiring Steam makes much more sense than Minecraft.
Actually, if Newell's comments on that previously are anything to go by, Valve has a larger liquid capital amount than MS. The difference between the two is private vs public in terms of trading.

When a random stranger is yelling insults in the street, I always go up and yell insults back at him, louder. That'll teach him!

I find it hilarious that your Mencken quote in your signature suggests you should probably take the high road(the harder path, of course) in such a situation.

Corrupt and/or subjective journalism is nothing new. Voicing prejudices about groups of people is nothing new. Both are terrible of course, but the answer really isn't more anger or vitriol.
So you're saying that "voices of the game journalism and gaming industry" are just strangers in the street yelling insults? Are you saying then that their so inherently unable to control their emotions that their only action is to lash out at people to make them feel better about themselves, or to try and shout down opponents because they don't want to hear what they have to say.

While you're correct that corrupt journalism is not new, there reaches a point when people simply have enough. A reporters job is to give information, not shove their point of view down your throat while screaming that "you're worse than terrorists that rape young girls and women, commit mass murders, and slaughter civilians."
