I've got multiple recent Sony TV purchases and they've all been great. Samsung "Spyware" TV isn't something I'll ever buy. Clearly Samsung can't be trusted.

They do monitor your conversations, they just changed the terms and conditions document slightly. Not like the spyware changed.

I saw maybe 10 hackers total playing BF3, less playing BF4, and 2 during the hardline beta. if playing a game for 600 hours and seeing 10 hackers is "a lot" then you have standards that i can't meet. welcome to online gaming, there will always be cheaters. but to insinuate that BF2 has LESS cheaters is just a case of nostalgia ruining your memory.

I saw way, way more cheaters than 10 in BF3. Maybe 10% of games I played before I quit playing BF3.

How many cheaters BF3 had relative to BF2 is irrelevant to me. Because BF2 had bots, I didn't have to play with rampant cheating. BF3 onwards - everyone is stuck with cheaters.

Fuck those terrorist cocksucking religous whacko conservatives!

It's probably a small or non-existent group of people who meet all of your criteria...Can't be too many terrorists who are into cocksucking while being religious and conservative and also whackos.

I dropped Eurogamer a while back due to their anti-Gamergate stance. Ethics aren't important to them, so it's not like their review scores meant anything anyways.

the ones that have had their servers shut down? sticking with your guns on this one eh? I'd love to see you stream some of this, as i gotta say, playing 12 year old games claiming that they're superior to the modern equivalent is usually a game of rosy coloured nostalgia glasses.

I don't need the servers with bots. Which is why EA stopped putting bots in the BF games. All of the earlier BF games are installed and get played occasionally on my PC.

BF3 was a superior visual experience (as I skipped buying BF4) from a multiplayer point of view, but it was completely ruined by the rampant cheating. Things like being instakilled by someone on the other side of the map with a pistol. Punkbuster is useless. BF4 was a trainwreck, and BF Hardline feels like a mod at best.

Because that never happens with cab drivers.

While there are issues with Uber, such as the lesser background check and the whole "who is liable" issue that really bugs me, I wouldn't say that the background checks cab drivers go through are really significantly better at stopping creeps.

Cab drivers have more background checks than Uber drivers. So it does make a significant difference.

Really unimpressive game - glad to have the open beta to see that it sucked. Sticking with old school Battlefield games that have bots instead.

I don't lump EA and Kickstarters together. Early Access titles seem to have a much higher failure rate, and seem to have a much lower hurdle to get funds.

The difference is that Kickstarter needs to hit a financial target. If they set the target too low, nobody will contribute.

Is there any real barrier to early access on Steam titles? Doesn't seem so.

Given some of the really scary shit Uber drivers have pulled I'm surprised they haven't done this in the states.

You take your chances with Uber. Is this the time it saves you money, or you get raped on the way to your destination...

I've finished Dead State once and I'm on my second play through. Well worth buying. The review was pretty accurate.

I'm just envisioning someone giving that blood test at the local bar. Hopefully the readout is big so it's not easily mistaken.

Kotaku? Investigative journalism there? Not a chance, they've got that SJW hand so far up there it's like a puppet. It will be more interesting if we see the authorities investigate it.

So the Samsung has spyware like the Xbox One. Good thing I have neither product.

So you don't have any kind of smart-phone or tablet either?

At least it's optional, unlike the Xbone

It's much easier to wrap the tablet and smart-phone in tinfoil (or a soundproof box) than the TV
