TBS, TNT to Stream Live TV

And thus I will continue to torrent whatever I wish to see from them. Which isn't all that much.


I just wait for everything to come out on disc/streaming, but yeah...it's like they don't get it...


And you expect to get it for free? They are not a broadcast network. They charge subscription fees. They are probably just as tied up as ESPN and HBO when it comes to streaming content on the internet due to existing contracts. ESPN and HBO both offer free streaming to existing subscribers.


No, I never said free. People don't want cable - they want ala carte. Something that terrifies the shit out of cable, since it removes them from the equation.

Not directed at you personally, but I don't give a fuck about their contracts. If they want my money, they have to play my way. Or I'll keep doing what I've done for the last 5+ years and stream or buy shit what it comes out on disc.



I'm pretty sure they don't give a shit about you

I can't really see anything outdoing Dota 2 in the MOBA department, it has the strongest community tools I've ever seen in an online game.

Well, Dota 2 has to outdo League of Legends before that comment could even be relevant

epeen wars, my moba is better than yours! en garde!

I've never played LoL so no idea (went to install it and the installer had adware attached), all I ever hear about it is that it's a more rudimentary take on the Dota formula, not that there's anything wrong with that. I know it's very successful though, particularly in the asian markets.

Well, the reason I mentioned it was because it's the biggest MOBA and also the biggest competitive scene by a significant margin.

I actually just started playing this last week and I wish I started playing this sooner. The reason I took so long was because I was afraid of all the things people would say about it such as it being a spreadsheet simulator and the amount of griefing that goes on, but it is not anywhere near as bad as people make it out to be.

The only downside is that there are a LOT of tutorials. I must have read for the majority of my first 15-20 hours of the game, but now that I am out of that phase and flying around it is almost overwhelming the amount of options ahead of me.

And for the record, when I tried to log in this afternoon they had over 50k people logged in =).

When you're ready for nullsec and are looking for a corp, let me know

I think a good analogy would be an all electric car that makes no noise hits someone from behind and the car manufacturer is not held responsible.

That's a terrible analogy, but funny to imagine.

It's a real problem for blind pedestrians. Enough so that car manufacturers have added noise to hybrids and electrics to ensure that they can be heard.

Don't forget the fact that they're working on the 19th free expansion and an economy where you can buy your own playtime.

Could you please what that means.

You can pay your monthly fee with ingame money

And unless you've been in the game forever (and ever) you'll never catch up and you're mostly just fodder for the big boys.


Not really. Making the right friends makes or breaks the game. You can be a pro tackler, fly a drake or cane pretty well, and contribute to plenty of battles after a month or two in game. You get incrementally better stats with age and you get more ships to fly with age, but in order to be productive in 90+% of fleets, all you need is a tackle frigate and a battlecruiser.

Being fodder is a misnomer for the most part. Generally, if you're primaried you're fodder. Guess who gets primaried first? All the names they know and the FC if they have intel/spies.

combat should never be a viable option in any stealth game but these days

Stealth doesn't have to mean no combat. Rainbow 6(Ravenshield and before) was all about stealth... until you had to execute your carefully orchestrated plan to complete the mission. You spent most of the time tactically and stealthily advancing to good positions so you could even attempt to beat the level.

As far as ghost, you can ghost the vast majority of Metal Gear Solid, but there are certain combats you must encounter, though you can finish them by non-lethal means. I would call MGS a ghost capable game, regardless.

A lot of this sounds like the BS they've done with Madden, NBA Live, and the NHL series over the years, making it a pain in the ass to do something in "clutch moments"

The real problem here is that you guys see the words "season pass DLC" and your brains glaze over.

Helping to support your mod/map community is the exact opposite of evil practices like that.

Season passes are evil, shitty cash grabs. If they want to allow people to purchase maps, not make a subscription, I have no problem with that.

News Comments > SimCity: Maxis Working on Traffic Jams; Deleting "Hack" Posts
6. Re: SimCity: Maxis Working on Traffic Jams; Deleting Mar 15, 2013, 10:18 bhcompy
 
Also, Computer and Video Games notes some tweets by EA's Erik Reynolds explaining he's being 1000% transparent in admitting they are deleting forum posts about hacking SimCity to play offline. He does not forbid the discussion, but says as a violation of their Terms of Service, it can't take place on their forums (he says they support mods, but parses this with "hacks are not mods"), so users should: "Please move it to other places and continue the dialogue."

I can respect that. It's the official forum from a big multinational corporation with investors worried about their huge investment in the game. Simply saying talk about it on a fansite is more than 99% of developers will say and publishers will allow. I don't blame him for trying to do his job
