The death of PC gaming knows no bounds.
I've been hearing about the death of PC gaming back when I started working in a retail store in '94. Every year or so, PC gaming is dying...dying...dying but it never seems to happen. Rather it keeps getting better, and stronger.

I want you Steam fans telling me why the games various community flourished in good ol' days but not now? Then it came lots of new mods, maps, games modes etc, just because game developers allowed it. Now it's really not much of that.
Look at last sentence, then previous sentence. You've answered your own question.

Hey, can everyone tell me now to freeload more, due to people wanting to put ads and make money off of thing I want to watch but not pay for.
Until advertisers stop being: Obnoxious, ensure their ads aren't malware laced, and stop autoplaying every time I open a page, and stop trying to track me all over the internet. They can shove them up their backside.

They're their own worst enemy, and have no one to blame but themselves for people blocking ads.

He seems to enjoy writing over the top stuff in the hopes that someone will spend time with him.

Will you be that someone?

Ah...you're talking about the NYT article I see. Well I'm sure not going to be that someone, but I'm sure the author of the story can find all his desires in a snuggle-bunnie outfit.

And the few that start political unrests get political re-education in camps as soon as they raise their heads. China is very much in control of everything, that's a lesson they learned from the Tianamen Revolt. React as soon as possible and as ruthless as possible to prevent another Tianamen incident.
Not really. You need to go spend some time at one of their universities to see exactly how much control they have. Hell the last time they tried to wipe out a fishing village, they had to back down after the international media got wind of it. And that was after trying to starve the 10k or so people out by cutting off all supplies in or out.

They have control, just not as much control as you might think. Not even among the peasant class(aka dirt farmers).

China has leadership that restricts its population's choices and uses media control to help it remain in power.

But China isn't stupid. People who say things like that learn hard lessons.
China is stupid. Here's the key reason why: 70% of their current generation has no family prospects, no future life prospects due to the "one child" policy. That means a large swath of their population is going to see one of two things, either a war with them as cannon fodder--or massive civil unrest because they have no future prospects.

Has anything china done worse than rounding up all the native americans that were left after we slaughtered them all for jesus because this was the new promised land and stuffed them onto reservations?
Yes, you just need to go browse their history. Key things include the mass slaughter of tibetan citizens and the cultural revolution come to the top of my head. You're only looking for 10 to 30 million depending on the figures, and that was in the last 70-80 years.

Thanks for pointing that out. I picked up two copies. One for my niece and one for me. For me it was like buy one get one free since my niece had just asked me about it the other day.
Yep, I grabbed one for myself and my sister. She's already soaked in 6 hours, and hasn't made it to the coronation yet. My best run so far ended up with my princess being poisoned and dying.

Speaking of which, anyone who enjoys RPG and Sim style games should go look at Long Live the Queen on sale via steam for 10% off, but buy it from the developer it's 50% off and you can get your steam key for it here.

Exactly. Evil Steam, right? And this Prime Evil GOG! Giving away the Fallout games, that I bought for about $90 a piece (import back in the day). This is outrageous! GOG is what is wrong with pc games these days! People won't buy pc games anymore, and it's GOG to be blamed for it.

Hah. I remember paying $74 here in Canada for Fallout, and that was back when I just started working in IT.

Yep it was up for a bit
It's back to being dead. Well with any luck I'll be able to pick up some of the VX packs on sale. If not, I'll wait for the next sale. But I've been trying since noon to buy some stuff and I've been getting that lovely 118 error, though sometimes I see error 400!

I didn't see anything I wanted so I decided to fire up my old Star Trek Online account and check out the Christmas specials.

It had 8 gigs of updates. Damn.
Ahaha. Didn't update before the new season was released I take it? The new content is pretty good btw, and if you liked the borg, hints laid out in the new content suggest there's more borg stuff coming in the future so with any luck, it'll be fun. As for the Dyson sphere stuff, I'm damn well enjoying the battleground content.

Their mistake was defrauding Chinese customers. If they had chosen targets in other countries I'm sure the government wouldn't have bothered to investigate.
Nah. China is very good at nailing your ass to the wall, unless you have money and know the right people to bribe. And bribery is how the entire country works. People like to whine and complain that Canada, US and UK are corrupt. Nothing, and I mean nothing has a patch on 3rd world corruption, where a gentle bit of money can make everything go so much better. And it doesn't even have to be in the quiet, as long as everyone gets paid.

Yeah it's huge in APC, but cafe's aren't what they used to be in terms of driving the numbers. And with it being break time for a lot of universities too, you'll see a huge upswing in the numbers.

Foolish protesters. According to people like Verno they deserve to be homeless and live in abject poverty and misery. Yay for social Darwinism! To hell with everyone and everything else!

Bitch, moan, complain. Of course, these people could move elsewhere to find work and become gainfully employed too. Long gone are the days of quit at 8am, find work by 10am. Of course it doesn't help that companies are abusing the visa work programs to bring in cheap labor either.

The new Star Wars pack for Pinball FX2 is $2.50. They are supposed to be some really fun tables.
I don't really have any complaints on any of them that's for sure, and for the most part they're fun like most of their tables. Right now my favorite is epic quest and tesla though. I kinda got burned out on the freebie table...heh.
