One day one of these bot companies is going to pop up in Russia or China and Blizzard will win in court like they always do and the company is going to tell Blizzard to go fuck itself and laugh while watching Blizzard attempt to enforce the ruling.

They'll just cut them off by IP blocking them and banning whoever uses the product - as they do now.

They ban accounts. IP blocking would be idiotic since most ISPs dynamically allocate them and that would mean you risk blocking some player who did nothing wrong. And it's not like the creator of the bot is going to give a shit if a few people get their accounts banned for violating Blizzard's ToS if he's already got their money. This is a losing battle for Blizzard. Every time they shutter one group building bots for WoW a new one pops up to take it's place.

Not to mention blocking IP's would be pointless when all you'd need to do is log into a VPN to get a new IP...

News Comments > The Dark Mod No Longer a Mod

This is pretty nifty - works in Linux, Windows, and Mac. I downloaded it a few days ago and got around to installing it today on Ubuntu. I downloaded it from a torrent then followed the simple install info here.

So far I've only got a bit into the training mission but like it so far...

Thought that name sounded familiar. Now I have to pull out my Outlaws cd's for some musical reminiscing.

Re: Terraria,

I might have to reinstall it I guess. I installed the android version on my tablet yesterday and it was ok but the controls were still goofy using touchscreen...

re: 32 real life cheat codes,

Setting homepage to a random wikipedia page sounds pretty neat, to do it use the url http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

I still won't buy Diablo 3 as long as it's single player requires online only DRM. There are too many other games worth my money that let me play them w/o internet. I voted with my wallet on release but they still sold millions so whatever...

I would still play Populous if it weren't for the carpal tunnel strain that one causes. I'm hoping by release Godus isn't bad or it's a no buy for me.

Luckily, wine is pretty damn good for installing a fair number of GOG games. And even the native linux DOSBOX client helps.

I've been messing around in Ubuntu the past few weeks and it has come a long way as far as gaming support since the last time I tried it a few years ago. Still not worth giving up multi-booting a Win7 partition but even so there are some days I never even boot into Win7.

Ooo, that will be fun to sit in and push buttons.

ROFL so so true. At the end of the day that's all I can ever retain from the DCS games. My attention span is too short I guess. Five minutes and I'm like, "hrmm what about that other game I could be playing? *ALT-F4*"

Been using YNAB since March and love it. I still "cheat" some and spend more than I should but it has still helped for bill planning a ton.

Yeah, and they get more Origin installs which is probably more valuable to them in the long run. But whatever. I bought it for $1.01 and will not install Origin to play the one non-Steam game (Dead Space 3). I have such a backlog of games if I ever feel like playing it it won't be for five years and by then maybe EA and/or Origin will be history.

Still Origin free!

Hell, the only reason I would install Origin would be if EA came out with Outlaws 2...

Valve will have to orbitally nuke all online sales in EU. It's the only way to be sure the lawyers don't win.
