I have no idea why they would find this surprising. Anyone who is rabid enough about a game to cheat at it is also going to be invested enough to buy into whatever advantages they can get.

I would only be surprised if that was not the case.

More likely some middle manager is trying to protect his ass. See, hardly anyone responded, nothing to see here, move along!

Its pretty clear you dont understand how encryption works, and if it did work like you suggest then it would be easily defeated.

Uhm, yeah? No.

www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-ways-to-securely-encrypt-your-files-in-the-cloud/

The relevant portion:

"Why Dropbox? Good question. Dropbox can synchronize only the changed portions of large files, while Google Drive and SkyDrive can only synchronize entire files (as far as I can tell). This means that, if you have a 2GB TrueCrypt drive and change a small file in it, Dropbox will upload a small portion of the TrueCrypt file, while Google Drive and SkyDrive will re-upload the entire 2GB file. Some other cloud storage services may also offer delta uploads – be sure you choose one that does if you’re using a TrueCrypt volume."

Still doesn't sound like enough, considering the loss of unique properties from off hand items. Certainly no Wizard will be switching to staves.

Back from the beach whereupon I read:

I'll take something from Gaiman over Zelazny any day. Amber was so god damn tedious.

How do you speak such heresies and remain unburned?

George R.R. Martin says 'f*ck you' to anyone who thinks he'll die before finishing 'Game of Thrones' series.

I seem to recall Robert Jordan saying much the same thing before croaking and leaving the Wheel of Time series incomplete. That series should have been wrapped up by about book 5, but he just kept dragging it out and spinning into a textual soap opera.

Other disappointingly unfinished series would include Roger Zelazny's (2nd) Chronicles of Amber and Gorden R. Dickson's (Dorsai) Childe Cycle.

Hey, Rebellion is the same company that sued developer of "Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion" over use of word "Rebellion" as in: "They asserted that our use of the word "Rebellion" in the title of our game "Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion" was violating their trademark. Rebellion Developments made a number of demands including destroying all our existing promotional and marketing materials, paying them money and agreeing to never talk about it."

http://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/455527/page/1/

So I wouldn't put it past them being a scum company in other areas.

I was going to point that out as well. A scumbag dev is not going to receive the benefit of the doubt here.

I don't know the law in Japan, but in the US a case of business interference, tortuous or otherwise would be a civil (lawsuit) matter, not a "criminal" one. There's a good chance that headline is factually incorrect.

I didn't get very into Last Light before hitting the areas that require you to run about full tilt under the mask filter countdown.

Being an explorer/completionist I detest, utterly detest, games that force an arbitrary time limit on you. After hitting that large outdoor area, I uninstalled in disgust.

I'm guessing Mel Gibson isn't doing any voice acting for this, seeing as he's completely toxic since his self elevation to the asshole hall of fame.

News Comments > 75 More Steam Greenlights
7. Re: 75 More Steam Greenlights Apr 18, 2014, 00:10 Longswd
 
There was a time not so long ago when being a green-lit game meant something, i.e. it was probably worth a look at least. Now, they just shovel crap and it drives the few good things right down off the front page. I stopped checking Steam new releases about 2 months ago because of this.

It's obvious there is no real vetting going on at this point, some pretty terrible stuff is getting through.

News Comments > Defiance DLC Adds $77 Gun Kit

I uninstalled it last night actually. They are apparently entirely focused on puking out their season pass DLC obligations and doing nothing at all to fix the base game, which has serious and multitudinous issues.

I love the action oriented combat but every other aspect of the game ranges from mediocre to downright broken.

They say 250k euro budget and they had 4 years to deliver the product, how many people were working on this for 4 years? I hope they had other jobs because 250k budget for number of people for 4 years be very low to survive on, not to mention actually develop a game.

That's what I was thinking as well. That's even before factoring in overhead like rent, utilities, hardware, software, (cheap) hookers and blow.

Just 48% of RSA attendees surveyed think NSA overstepped boundaries.

The reason this seems low is because the majority whom felt strongly enough about it, actually boycotted the whole conference and thus where not present to be polled.
