I'd give out my trade secrets, but there's one prude here that'd get me rung up with the FBI for it.

In before that one weird guy who in three years has only posted about 30 times to rag on CCP.

But... five years ago they gave some blueprints to an alliance that no longer exists, in a scandal that everyone's forgotten about. If that's not worth a multi-year forum crusade, what is?

Don't think we've forgotten about that. Not a chance.

Yep, our states can't manage money, nor can our federal government, so what's the solution? Taxes! It's amazing how we pay more in taxes than Great Britain. You know, the same country we fought to be free from, for "excessive taxation without representation", among a laundry list of other things?

Love to see how many employers pull random drug tests out of their pocket for these potheads on 4/21. I know mine was planning on it, and I'll guarantee that we lose at least 2 people for it.

This is the same government that's been assaulting our rights for the last three and a half years. Scott Walker and John Boehner have been the main movers in making sure of this. So I can't say I'm surprised that they're trying every dirty trick in the book to make sure they don't lose.

When did they change the release date? Thought it was supposed to launch on 12/21/12. That's what I'd heard for the last 18 months, anyway.

Be nice when her employer gets a letter from her attorney saying "excuse me, what part of 'invasion of privacy' don't you get?"

Just another blatant attempt at control over what you do, what you see, what you think. This, like every other bill that impedes on your Constitution-given rights, needs to be smacked down, and the people that sponsor and support it voted out of office.

Now most of that QA department's employees are handled by a third party, thus reducing EA's costs.
Mostly in India, I'll bet.

On the PS2 version of BG2, the God-King of Mulhorand called for the sun chariot. I've been waiting in anticipation ever since. Bring it on, Horus-Re.

I can't even remember the last DDO expansion. I guess the game must be doing well for them to be doing this.

I saw that LOTRO also just expanded (Isengard) and is already planning another new one (Rohan).

Good for Turbine - fun and well-designed MMOs. Well deserved. My orcs love playing LOTRO in particular.


Yeah, I agree. If there is a company that is doing F2P correctly, it is Turbine.

I have to disagree with you totally on that point. If there is one company that is not doing F2P correctly it is Turbine. They charge you for each new area you can go quest in. I tried playing this game, but once you’re past the beginner area, they charge for any new questing area. That is utter crap. STO and DC Online do not do that to their customers.

They charge you for added content like expanding inventory or crew members. But they do not change you for each and every area that you try to venture into. That is what killed this game for me. I was not willing to buy each new area I wanted to do a quest in.

Yes you can earn points that can open those areas, but again I was not willing to grind out the same areas over and over just to earn those points. Sorry, but DDO is fail when it comes to being a true F2P online game.

Cry a little harder, please, I can't hear you over the clang of swords.

Does that mean that we can sue the government for running a monopoly? That's what RIAA/MPAA are, when you think about it.

My bias against the Patriots runs deep. However, when they cut Tiquan Underwood the day before the Super Bowl, they deserved to lose. Congrads to the Giants on their win, now maybe the horde of Patriots fans here in this town will shut the hell up for a while.

There's some interesting facts in the article on pirates and the studios, but overall he doesn't really make much of a case. There's certainly a case to be made, but he doesn't seem to understand how to make it. Pointing at things that Thomas Edison did is not an indictment of the current studios unless you can draw the necessary parallels to what is being done today. He didn't do that well at all.

I dunno, I thought he made his case rather well. Did you even read the article? Or just the tl;dr version?

That headline should read "FBI seeks another legal way to invade your privacy". It's amazing how all these anti-privacy bills and requests are all coming up at once, isn't it?
