almost heretical things to first-person shooters at the time.

They still are.

Not allowing me to save when I want to is ass.

Limiting my choice is also ass.

Main reason why I never got into Halo. That and the kiddie-friendly villans.

Post-Steve Apple is certainly doing all it can to not follow his playbook.

I cannot believe that, if alive, Jobs would actually have stood behind changing the form factor of the docking connector with NO performance improvement. I honestly believe this to be the greatest Achiles Heel of the current generation of iDevices. Were steve alive, I'm certain that any new dock connector would have been accompanited with corresponding USB3-level speed updates.

As it is now, the iPhone 5 is exactly the device he cancelled just prior to stepping down: an iPhone 4 with a biogger screen, and nothing else.

That's funny. I say the exact same thing about my California Senators.

Actually, pathetic and unacceptable usually comes laced with profanity and "dry rot wood."

These boneheads need to realize that they have to give tools to help those with family members suffering from mental disorders. Waiting for those that need help to break the law, in ANY fashion, is pathetic and irresponsible.

Yes, Barbara and Diane, I'm talking to you.

Nice little update to the ToS there, Facebook. Being able to sell someone's photos in perpetuity? Sounds classy.

And yet hundreds of millions of people will gladly bend over and take it up the ass, because, well, after all, there's a Like button!

Yet another reason to stay off the InstaSpam (TM) bandwagon...

How do I turn off the ugly as fuck giant button on my Steam UI

That doesn't get rid of the button.

News Comments > Black Ops II Patch Increases FOV

Correct FOV has nothing to do with screen size, but depends on viewer's distance to the screen roughly because of peripheral vision (in addition, some people perceive this differently and might need slight adjustments to not get dizzy).

A good explanation is in this great tutorial video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blZUao2jTGA

Excellent video...I had a conversation with a level designer talking about how elements of architecture in game space often needed to be "altered" to appear correctly to the human eye, depending on the FOV. This video would have been a great adder to that convo.

Thanks again for that. Bookmarked.

Some of you guys really need to read through the RSI site: it's not an MMO. There are no subscription fees. They *are* allowing for in-game micro-transactions to buy cosmetic items for customization, but, to paraphrase Roberts: everything in the game will be earned the old fashioned way--through dedication and skill.

People will be able to run their own servers and make mods.

It sounds like he is going to have an in-game Privateer-like economy, with sales of the client/server and "customizations" to fund upkeep.

It remains to be seen if that will realistically work on a financial basis. I hope it does, but gaming is so diluted right now, I fear this may be niche market. It's been almost a decade since I closed the book on a similar game, with a far bigger leg up (franchise-wise), and the numbers back then were bad when the market was far less...fractured.

But, who knows? Faith manages.

(Edited for typos; I'd blame auto-correct, but it was all me.)

You don't think there's anything wrong with handing over money for stuff sight unseen?

These kickstarter things seem pretty popular around here.

While I think it is an awesome vehicle, same rules apply: "Buyer Beware."
