Great, so 6-12 months before it hits live....

Hope they reveal another expansion at blizzcon this year...more classes, please.


More trading please. And PvP. Without these two things Diablo is dead to me There is no reason to interact with other players, none whatsoever. I find this very sad as Diablo 1 and 2 used to be great places to hang out, and shoot the shit once in a while...

I don't hate Germany, as a nation or as a people, but I do hate the fact that they have attempted to gloss over WW1, WW2, and the Holocaust in their history books and popular culture.

You are a hater and a bigot. You are also completely misinformed and just plain wrong. There is no glossing over of history in Germany, the shame all Germans feel with regards to Nazi Germany in WW2 is very real and very well represtented in both its public education system and its history books. Even Zionist Israelis acknowledge this fact.

Also get one thing straight, supporting a government in a time of war is not the same as knowing or being complicit in all of its crimes.

Ever heard of the Nuremberg trials??

By your fucking 'grudgebearing' logic, the entire world population would be at each others throats 24/7. Maybe its time I picked up a grudge against the 'nation' that invented (and used) the most destructive weapon in all of human history (the Atomic Bomb)....

...one of the few times a world war game has acknowledged a German as a human being...

A human being that had full knowledge of the fact that their government was mass-exterminating Jews, Roma, homosexuals, the handicapped, and any other group of people that didn't fit into their eugenic insanity of creating a master race? Are those the people that you are worried about as not being portrayed with "humanity" and "compassion"? There's a terribly small violin playing somewhere, but for the life of my I just can't seem to hear it over the sound of wailing in the death camps.

Wrong war there professor. You're thinking of World War II not I. A war that happened 30 years in the future. By the way how much the average German knew and how much the rank and file enlisted soldier knew is a debated topic, with lots of variations according to where they were stationed and where they lived.

The same people who fought in WWI were the people who sat by while their neighbors were rounded up in cattle cars 20 years later. This idea of portraying early 20th century Germans as anything other than the shitheads they were is historical revisionism at its best. But let's disregard the fact that these guys were the ones that developed weaponized chlorine gas to use on the battlefield, and instead romanticize history and show how this one guy didn't actually want to fight.

Guess how many French/British/Serbian etc... didn't want to fight but didn't have any choice when the Germans decided to come trotting into their countries?

You are a horribly misinformed, vitrolic, troll of a human being. How is hating an entire nation for the sins of their masters any different from how the Nazi's felt about the Jews you asshole??

"muslim" isnt a race, genius

Nice cop out, Bill Maher.
Regardless, most muslims belong to one race. It's de facto racism.

how is that a cop out? do you even know what that means?

and all muslims are one race? so whos racist again? methinks the lady doth protest too much...

I didn't say "all."
And it is a cop out. Rather than address the fact that he made a gross generalization, you're nitpicking. That's a cop out.

Speaking of looking things up, you need to look up what "de facto racism is." Hint: the Tea Party uses it all the time. Screw it, I'm done with this conversation and don't want more derailing back and forth so I'll just tell you - de facto racism is when someone says something not based on exactly and claims it makes them not racist because, even though the statement covers almost exclusively one race, there are tiny percentages of other races covered as well.

You cant accuse someone of generalization and then generalize in the very next post. Thats called hypocrisy. He was definitely generalizing, and he was being a dumb asshole but he wasnt being racist. You were when you assumed that nearly all muslims are one race. There are Albanians, Kurds, Turks, Khazakis, Afghanis, Arabs, Persians, Pasthus, etc. etc. etc. who would like to have a word with you.

I understand that there is Pavlovian, frothing rage and loathing whenever Microsoft is mentioned in BluesNews, but bing is just another service that one can opt not to use. Just like one can opt not to install the 'optional' bing desktop in windows update.

I use the search engine sometimes and they do a pretty decent job. Its Map is actually better than Google for its cleaner and more intuitive interface, imo.

Pavlovian rage?? You guys at Redmond are beyond salvation. Truly.

Well...technically these chips are mostly made in Tawain, China, or Vietnam....so erm....yeah I guess they could go local, but a better bet would be that they should just make their own with cheap foreign slave labour...

I wouldn’t give the Asians too much credit for those chips. Yes, they make them for us, but all of that tech was built and designed by us. I seriously doubt the Russian Chips are very good or reliable compared to Intel and AMD who have been making them for decades now. The Russians will be playing catch up for a very long time.

I was being sarcastic, but now that you mention it: The "Russian" chips which were mentioned in the article are actually licenced versions of ARM processors. A UK company. Sure the US has all the patents, but once you get the factories up and running, who cares about patents and IP ownership right?

With regards to "stoppage time". Its a matter of discretion by the main referee. It depends on many factors and cant really be something that's timed to the second, because the game clock is never stopped during any kind of break in the game, free kicks, fouls and whatnot.

Microsoft to finally give Bing the international love it needs.

The only love Bing needs is a tombstone. Google is still infinitely more useful despite the commercialization and at least Google stopped trying to infect desktop computers a few years ago whereas Microsoft is still trying to dump Bing into Windows Update. It magically shows up even after being hidden every time there is a new version too.

Yeah Microsoft showing its class...Nothing like some extra adware/spyware to sweeten the deal...
