How often does anyone actually get killed in a swatting? For all the dangers that are involved, as a way to actually get someone killed it is pretty useless. A charge of manslaughter if someone does get killed might stick, or reckless endangerment if someone is hurt.

He deserves a long sentence but I don't think idiots will be deterred by the length of the sentence because they think they're too smart to get caught. Swatters being found guilty in court is biggest deterrent because that makes it harder for potential swatters to feel confident about their own safety.

This is the new norm for companies, I remember my employee handbook for my old job said you will be held accountable for ANYTHING you said about the company on anything digital. I can see both sides of the argument. Company wants to protect itself and its image, employees want to complain about things that are going wrong with there jobs.

Anything digital? Including email or other private messages?

I can understand companies not allowing employees to badmouth them publicly and doing so online shouldn't be any different. However, things like requiring Facebook login details seems more like demanding employees wear microphones so private conversations can be monitored.

It's good to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive doing so well.

Meh... I guess. I just find it amazing there are still people alive, with a computer, that don't have CS:GO, or have already played enough of the previous versions to be utterly sick of the CS format.

$15 Elite:Dangerous was too tempting, I contributed to that #5 placement, I'm sorry to say.

These people exist. Some of them have even regularly visited a highly respected PC gaming website for over half their lives, posting nearly 5000 times in that time

$25.99

I purchased COD BO3 from them on the cheap, transaction was smooth.

Do you know where their keys are from? That's a little too good to be true IMHO. I don't see anything about a guarantee.

I never see huge comment thread's about Amazon's practices. I mean they are the root of fucking evil and yet I bet everyone here, myself included, uses it.

They do this shit all of the time. They say something retails at one price, say it's 60%, when the actual market value is a lot less.

For instance - I am looking at a shoe, it sells for around $45.00-55.00 at most retailers. But, Amazon says that the retail price is $115.00 and I am getting a steal with 57% off. It's fluff marketing! I mean, we don't even have to sit here and think about this shit these days when you have good old google over there for a person to take 3 fucking god damn seconds to type some shit in, to do your research for you. And you guys are pissed about some shitty Steam game sales, lol!

People on a PC gaming site discussing PC games and not shoes? We're so weird!

Sounds like the Steam Spy guy might have blinders on, staring so hard at all those numbers that he neglects to consider why the prices may have changed. Two of those games are in fact in Early Access and have recently received large updates; I don't know if Bugbear mentioned the price shift was happening, but the developer for Epistory did say on Monday that the update marked the end of their early bird pricing.

Regardless, the easy way to see if this is nefarious or just coincidental is to wait until the sale is over, see if the prices stay where they are now or go back down.

At least in the UK, it is only the price before the discount that matters and I don't think announcements (especially so recent) or Early Access labels matter.

Companies doing shady stuff shouldn't be accepted or ignored. Just because I can figure out that some 50% discount is actually 25% - using tools not provided by Valve - doesn't mean their attempted fraud is acceptable.

It is illegal in many countries and Valve have been slapped down (Civ Beyond Earth) in the UK at least twice (GTAV) for precisely this so I don't think a shrug of the shoulders will cut it.

It doesn't seem right to laugh at some guy for screaming like a girl when he saw a spider ... in Australia. That seems like an entirely reasonable reaction.

no kidding. the folks at EA are popping champagne corks as we speak. They're happy someone else is going to try this nonsense first and take the brunt of the criticism for when they roll out FIFA FtP.

FIFA World launched a couple of years ago. It shut down earlier this year.

It won't show all items together when you look in an individual container, but you'll have the materials available to you when building or crafting. Once you've got a big stash in your main base, wherever that is, the easiest way to pimp out a new settlement is to get that connection established.

This. I'm building a freaking LEGION in the Commonwealth. Soon, nobody will move in the greater Boston area without my say-so.

I grabbed the solo-play perks and have been playing with myself since, so to speak. I dismissed the dog as soon as I could and I haven't seen it for about 25 hours. I hope it's okay...

What do supply lines actually do? I thought they would pool each settlement's workshop inventory but it seems not unless there's a flaw in my testing methodology (open WS inventory, note top few items and their quantities, fast travel, open WS inventory, compare top few items).

How? I don't think that's possible, never mind easy.

Because in the cutterverse, terrorists have huge red triangles above them and health bars. In our universe, it's close to impossible to spot out the terrorists in a group all up in arms. But in the cutterverse, it's easy.

I hope so, that's a lot less objectionable than any other reason I can think of. It would be nice if he clarified but something tells me that he's not going to.

Thank you for your comment. I am the author of this review. I have considered what you wrote and you make a good point. I do try to be reasonably objective but I let my emotions get the better of me in this case.

I couldn't help but see the irony/similarity to how this whole debate has been handled in some circles, and the barbs thrown our way, about our viewpoints, and I let that get the better of me when writing that line. We strive to be as objective as is reasonable. I knew when I wrote it that it could be taken a bit divisively by some, but there is no need to use charged language to make my point.

That line of my review has been changed, taking this into account.

Thank you.
