How does one even attempt to force an opinion? Talk about being defensive, Verno - you are often the pot calling the kettle.

Hell I'd love to see "plenty of kids play it", but they don't. You're just full of shit.

I don't mean 5 year olds and you're just being weird, don't poop your pants in your haste to discredit everyone who doesn't love up your favorite game.

You mindless fucking PR bot, I'm allowed to have my opinions even if you don't like them.

What a fucking weirdo.

Have fun guys! Im stumped financially at the moment, and can't afford to buy GTAV at this time. I hope I can jump on board next month, but the way the shit is hitting the fan lately I might be out of a job next month. Then there is also the Witcher3, which is contending for my gaming $$$. Tough decisions, tough decisions....

Good luck with your job situation IB, don't sweat GTA V. Great game but all good things to those that wait.

No need to get so defensive, I've seen plenty of kids playing and I think its great that this game is free and gives them that opportunity. Great business model here, reminds me of Dota 2 and I hope other games aspire to it. I don't even play D3 and I don't care what you think of it TBH. Not sure why you're so weird about this game and try to force your opinion on everyone else, I didn't even quote or reference you in any way.

Great for the diehards of the game but I can't see myself getting back into it. Very poorly animated and combat is boring to me. It was fun for awhile and I didn't pay any money so whatever, no regrets.

The F2P aspect makes it a great game for kids though, see lots of buzz from youngins about it on Twitch.

I'm not really talking about Internet here but the forceful waste of people's money.

If you're not talking about the internet then you probably shouldn't say "using the political system to fund the internet".

Yes usually using government to solve problems is usually the bad way

I don't care for this sort of absolutist statement or find it terribly realistic. There are many situations where government is desirable and even optimal. Recognizing where and when is whats important and that's a big part of how I decide to vote. It's ironic that people often get upset at how infiltrated politics is by corporate interests but then claim that the answer to everything is to turn to these sources and ignore government.

Using the political system to fund the Internet based on political 'feel good' ideals panders more to artificial hysteria and emotions.

I mean, I don't necessarily disagree with some of your other points but that first paragraph in the second snippet is a bunch of claptrap. Sure things are funded in a variety of ways but do you even remember how the Internet came to be? Government funding. People act like government spending is inherently wasteful and that other alternatives are always better but that's not the case at all.

This is my favorite one of Carlin's rants, the man is timeless. One of the best stand up performers I've seen in person, he was great at nailing hecklers too.

That's actually nothing, I have a buddy who worked at Blackberry up in Canada and his horror stories of that place are the stuff of employment nightmares. Apple just sounds like every other corporation where a lot of middle managers insinuate themselves, Microsoft has been that bullshit for decades.

When I see numbers like that I can't help but see a lot of padding.

It makes me think of the mediocre Radiant AI stuff from Skyrim. I'm more partial to fewer, meaningful quests with content than 100 collection quests and other crap. Unfortunately it seems to be a minority opinion these days since gamers at large just eat it up.

That's not really fair, Blue reports on pretty much everything including Path of Exile. If you don't see something reported then send it to news@bluesnews.com. People have just cooled on the game since its been out awhile and a lot of newer games are out so it attracts few comments. Whether you like D3 or not, it sold like 20 million copies and its worth reporting on as well.

Pillars owns bones, really enjoying it. Monk for my first play through was a bit weird at first but I get it now.

Ugh. I tried youtube without adblock once... Once. I would NEVER do that again. Too many ads, it's like paying for Hulu.

I know, right? Google should be providing youtube for free as a public service! How dare they try to make money from it!

Nothing wrong with blocking the ads, they're annoying as hell. I didn't mind but they've gotten progressively worse as time goes on. You can feel free to view them all to make up for it.

This sort of service gives me a way of blocking the ads and giving them revenue though so I will probably do so if the price is reasonable.

To the tech press, nothing can kill the iPad because that would require them to say that Apple didn't make the best of something. Those of us who don't live in the Reality Distortion Fields have known that for years but this is the tech press so...
Not only is it Ars, it's Peter Bright on Ars. He generally hates anything Microsoft does and thinks everyone should be like Apple.

I think you have that backwards, Peter B has been into MS shit for decades and has criticized Apple very openly on the Battlefront. It was literally his career. Plenty of positive MS coverage from him on Ars too. He's just fair in calling out both companies for their various flaws.

Fixed a problem where attributes on characters could permanently increase by equipping certain items. This will also retroactively fix the problem in saved games that have characters with this issue.

Noooo, no more godlike Eder!

tl;dr: bronies are a bunch of poorly adjusted adults and/or perverts.

I don't care if that offends, bronies are fuckin creepy. I remember taking our little one when she was 4 to a local promo event involving My Little Pony. There were some weird fuckin fat sweaty dude there by himself just staring at the kids, I wanted to beat the shit out of him but thankfully security eventually had a few quiet words with him and he left.
