I want this game, I really do, but somehow I have a bad feeling about it. But this can't go wrong, can it? Anyway, waiting to spend my money on release day.

The more stretch goals involved (due to over-funding) the more things can go wrong. Quite a few over-funded projects on KS have collapsed. And Star Citizen is a great example of "waaaaaay over-funded". It's wise to spend the money on release day. Just my 5c.

The first and most important step to limit their power is to cut off their money supply. That can only be done by going back to a commodity-backed currency.

Unfortunately, this can't be achieved by voting, it requires a revolution (which isn't going to happen because, as long as beer, burgers and TVs are cheap people couldn't care less...)

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me...


Um, no. Blizzard managed to "fool" millions just once - to accomplish their goal (which is sitting on a mountain of cash). They will gladly accept all the shame and cash you throw at them in the first place. They don't have to fool you twice. And in five to ten years, when they release their next Diablo, all the shame will be long forgotten and people will again be ready to throw cash (and shame) in Blizzards direction.

Sounds to me like you're gonna have to learn how to code.

Even though this would be the best choice I don't think it's necessary. Europe's (e.g.) got talent and in the PRISM/UPSA era the motivation to dump US internet giants has grown significantly. I frequent German IT forums and pretty much everybody there hates the US govt./NSA/PRISM etc.

Non-American browser alternatives will pop up on the web sooner or later.

"US businesses stand to lose up to $35B as a result of PRISM."

That's a presumed revenue loss of 20 percent due to PRISM.

In my view only a complete collapse of all American cloud services would have been proper punishment for the existence of PRISM.

I agree. Still, I became immersed enough to make LOG 2 a "must-have" title. And the screenshots look great already. Glad to know, they're adding some depth to the combat system.

If that is legal, then that is one hell of a "WTF" law the us got there. Might as well stop pretending and rename to United Corporations of America... because that ain't in the textbook; how legal systems are supposed to work....

Not surprised. There some other things that are perfectly legal in the UPSA. E.g. go to Walmart, get a semi-automatic gun, and start a blood-bath (well, the blood-bath isn't legal, but since you can kill yourself afterwards, who cares?).

"PRISM revelations result in lost business for US cloud companies."

I haven't used much of this cloud crap before anyway, and now, thanks to Mr. Snowden, the sky has cleared completely for me. Dropping gmail as my main email provider requires some effort but is in process. Never even got anywhere near creating an account at upload-all-your-life-thankyou Facebook.

Ignore Trollin Thunder. When Bushco was doing much worse he was right there cheerleading and obviously anyone who questioned their might and wisdom were traitors and terrorists themselves. Like every conservative they're actually terrified of real freedom.

The scary thing is that people like Hayden honestly see people like Snowden, and not what they're doing, as the problem. You've massively overstepped your authority, you walk roughshod all over the Constitution, you're empowered by a secret court that no one can challenge, and never once has any citizen even been asked if they're ok with it. Obama's "We have to make some choices as a society" implies that there's been a choice to begin with.

As long as the people don't hit the streets to protest, everything is "just fine". ...

What company wouldn't want an always on camera and microphone that's connected to the internet in their board rooms?

Hey, thats mean! Microsoft always puts their customers' interests first and foremost. Always!

Problem is: Their most valuable customer goes by the name of "National Security Agency".

I have to say it again: all of this NSA spying on people all over the world and taking a dump on privacy is Watergate multiplied by a million - and all we hear is more or less *crickets*.

People are paying $500 for an XBOX ONE, a Microsoft/NSA co-developed gaming console featuring 1) permanent-online requirement and 2) a built-in surveillance cam. Is this the perfection of TOTAL CONTROL? No wait, total control could be the road to a dictatorship...

Dropping US sites is indeed a good idea. It doesn't prevent the NSA from collecting "their" data but the point is... if the site owner or service provider isn't in the US, US law simply doesn't apply. Under pressure, Google, Facebook, Skype & Co. will gladly relay every bit of data to the NSA.

It's also funny hearing our (German) politicians talk about how shocked they are about this and what a scandal it is now that it's out that THEY are spied on. And not just we (citizens)...

Anyway, next election is gonna be a vote for the Pirate Party again. No matter how unable this party is currently, there is no way I am voting for any established party after this. They think we are stupid, let's see how the elections go eh

by the way, given that Snowden said he still has FAR crazier things to leak i am not surprised the US is doing everything it can to discredit him and dilute the issue with straw men arguments.

It's even funnier that no matter how much more of the truth is revealed, it won't have any far reaching consequences. There are too many people in the overweight EU behemoth who are "really upset" right now but on the other hand wouldn't even consider closing their Facebook or Gmail accounts. And if the people don't care, why would the polititians? The spying will continue and a year from now, when the dust has settled, people will be discussing entirely different pseudo-issues.

Then it's our duty to keep this topic alive. If you read German news sites, especially Spiegel online, you are aware it's a front page topic and blown up to epic proportions. Heck Spon has this issue on the front page for nearly the entire week now. And if Snowden is smart, we still got more stuff incoming that keeps this topic alive beyond the critical mass (where civil actions keeps it alive further up to election).

Aside that, closing your facebook or gmail accont wouldn't do a thing. The entire internet is spied upon by the NSA.

Oh don't worry, I'll gladly keep this topic alive.

I mentioned FB and gmail because they're officially in bed with the NSA. As I see it, it would be best to drop every U.S. based service provider. There are non-American alternatives to FB, gmail, Skype... you name it. United (Police) States law simply doesn't apply to foreign service providers. But it's all in the hands of the users. They have to switch and now is a good time.

It looks cute, especially those vector graphics. There's a good chance this game can be played at decent frame rates on low end machines as well. I might have backed this but haven't heard of it (I'm not checking the KS page often).
