3. Roku Feb 23, 2010, 10:57 Shok
 
Last X-mas I bought my parents a roku to stream Netflix to on the TV and they love it. Amazingly my 74 year old mother has no problem navigating Netflix's website to put movies in her queue to watch instantly. The roku has many other web "channels" also but getting them comfortable watching Netflix movies was more than enough for me...

If the game is good enough, the pirates will find a way and rip out the DRM for those of us without 24/7 internet. I hope Sh5 is good, but I will not support a publisher who cripples their games like this. I want to be able to play my games 5,10,25 years in the future and not have to worry about a company server being around to let me know it's ok.

In 1999 Microsoft created the html command that would eventually enable AJAX in web browsers...

It's really just 3 certs since the MCP "cert" only means you passed any cert test.

Yeah, if it was in the U.S. it would probably be tried in East Texas where Hollywood would win it easily.

No flash support really ruins it as a web browser for me. And it doesn't multitask? wtf?

I'm sure the mindless public will buy tons of them. iWon't

12. Silent Hunter 5 Jan 26, 2010, 10:58 Shok
 
I was planning to buy Silent Hunter 5 but I doubt I will now. I can't always get online where I live so I guess I'll just wait for the pirates to make it offline only.

Good job UBISOFT!

/rant I would have bought Blackshark if the DRM wasn't so draconian with limited activations and such. I don't care if there are 8 or 10 or 20 activations, the pirates have ZERO and no starforce drivers on their computer... /rant

I had kicked the WoW habit and was clean for nearly 3 months until Blizzard sent me an email last week for 7 days free game time. I used that game time and it expires this evening just in time to make me resubscribe so I can play 3.3. DAMN YOU BLIZZARD ARGGHHHH!

News Comments > Thief 4 In "Good Shape"
31. Re: Thief 4 In Nov 28, 2009, 10:54 Shok
 
Splinter Cell: chaos theory was basically Thief gameplay in modern times. The objectives were'nt to steal things but it had the cool gadgets like sticky cameras and such for sneaking around the levels.

Without the archery/blackjack weapon mechanics and medieval setting I think Thief would just end up feeling like I was playing another Splinter cell type game.

No thanks, I'm done fighting crowds on black friday, especially at those tiny gamestops. I can see it now, Soccer moms clogging up the aisles asking the gamestop dweebs to find games with butchered up names because they don't know what the hell they are supposed to be buying. And then asking a million questions about the stupid game while everyone waits in line after them rolling their eyes.

Nope, I get up around 9 or 10 and go to a few stores. If they still have what I want I get it, if not, no big deal.

Dunno about the movie but the book was a good read. It's by the same author of "No country for old men" (which I saw as a movie and didn't read, ironically.)

I guess I'll get Dragon Age eventually but not any DLC. I read that once you purchase any DLC for it that it requires an internet connection to play. Can someone verify?

5. Another port to open Nov 11, 2009, 13:49 Shok
 
If you have a tight firewall you'll most likely need to open a port to connect via Battle.net. I know I had to earlier this year when I made the switch. I don't remember what port off hand though.

Thankfully, I've been WoW free now going on 72 days and hopefully won't relapse.
