They're just not pushing the envelope like they used to.
That'd be the taste of consolitis. Since they've been developing for 10 year old hardware, it doesn't take nearly as much power to render things.

Well Blue, make sure you check the lenses carefully. Back two years ago I got a new pair, and ended up having to take them back in half a dozen times because the company that did the polishing scratched the fsk out of them.

And this is not black mail and illegal because....?
They're not extorting. Rather they're selling information which they've discovered, which while not illegal in this case is by and far a grey area in most places. Especially since many companies put app security at a low priority or no priorty. Which means that there's a market for said information.

I hope Obsidian finds time and resources to work on Fallout: Something
They'll probably make a FO4 spin-off like New Vegas.

You can do a lot with a relatively small employee count when you don't hire any QA! *zing*

i remember reading an article a few years ago about the source of most global warming denial research. turns out most of it had origins in think tanks set up by tobacco companies to deny the link between smoking and lung cancer. when those sources were removed, there was an almost universal scientific consensus on the human origins of global warming.
That's pretty good, you know you'll find that the majority of warming groups and AGW proponent groups get their money from exactly the same type of thing, except they're all left-wing. Then again considering Obama's IRS being hacks and going after anyone who doesn't "toe the line" there could be a reason for funding only coming from one direction the last oh 4-6 years.

Indeed it is which makes it a federal crime. The FBI should be looking into this.
Don't hold your breath, it's far too politically correct to look into this. After all, you can't go after someone if they've committed a crime and are "oppressed" that would make you racist(not bigoted) in the flappy headed PC circles.

Yeah not really feeling anything on this at all, a scammer was outed, the world is a better place for it.

Was Ubisoft struggling before? It seems like they've been doing well financially for a very long time.
No they weren't struggling, but I do remember a story from hmm a year or so back maybe two years where they said that after they removed the DRM PC sales had jumped by ~56% from the previous quarter.

Based on the mouth breathing I've seen post reviews there, no.
I have seen a review saying: "IT MAKES FIRE TASTE GOOD!" With 19/25 people finding it helpful. Yeah gotta agree with that one nin.

Your vic20 didn't load an OS from a disc.. it was built into the rom chips. On that note, it was also unreplaceable.

That was the point. And it was replaceable, you simply had to flash new rom chips and soldier them to the board.

What I find funny is there's no mention on this guy's blog about the BF series, Quake 3, and a pile of other games which are online as well -- but have well known vulnerabilities. Seems more likely this is an attempt of "hey look at me, I found shit, now hire me!"

I remember when I used to have an A1200 060 and I found it ran faster than my 166mhz PC. I was disgruntled
Yeah well, I remember when my dad's vic20 ran faster than any PC we ever owned. But that's because programming an OS back before the mid 80's you were bound and constrained by how much code you could jam onto something. Not so much of a problem as magnetic storage got cheaper.

The words "preorder" and "SEGA" used together should be huge red flags.
You mean "preorder" and "gearbox" don't you?

Maybe a browser thing, possibly a plugin?
That was what I was thinking. Chrome seems to work reliably for me, sometime firefox does, but I'm pretty sure it's a plugin causing the problem.

You and me both. Since some of the dev's and CM's read Blue's I'd agree with your statement, and suggest they work at getting galciv3 on the list.

Yeah that's a pretty good price especially with the coupon.

Oh and for anyone who yet doesn't own skyrim, GMG has it on sale right now for 40% off.

Good question. As it is, they've gutted what was fun and challenging out of the game to the point where people are going "meh."

The Half Elf wrote on May 8, 2013, 03:20:
Do I qualify as a anti-gun nut? (not to you Mashiki just asking in general) I like guns, don't plan on owning one, enjoy shooting them once in a blue moon, but really think we should have very strict registration laws on them.
Is there any reason someone MUST have a gun within a month (for example)?
Nope. But that doesn't make much of a difference to the knee-jerkers who believe that "owning" something automatically makes you capable of it. As for strict registration laws? We have those in Canada, you know what it does? Jack squat, because criminals still get guns, and people who want to inflict harm via guns, still get guns. And in 90% of the cases they're stolen from people who've followed the law.

And where they're not stealing legal guns, they're getting them from anywhere they can. Illegally smuggled from the US, China, Latin America or South America.

InBlack wrote on May 8, 2013, 03:23:

Erm what? Is this analogy like the ones where people blame Obama for world hunger and George W. Bush for hairy vaginas?
Not been paying attention to the anti-gun nuts lately? That's okay, you can go back over the better part of a decade, if you didn't catch the implication just remember--that because you play video games, you're already a psychopath. That one's been played out too.
