There are obviously huge performance issues SOMEWHERE or the city sizes would be bigger than 4 city blocks.

Or they simply need something to throw at DLC and the performance issues are completely unrelated.

That's absolutely ridiculous, there's no proof whatsoever that CCP was involved with this, and there's no reason to believe they were

After pretty much every single exploit/cheat that has come up in EVE thus far, it is not an unreasonable assumption that there is an employee involved in this mess.

So, should or shouldn't be unconstitutional for retailers to have to ID for Playboy and Penthouse (or whatever)? Did I misread this?

Unconstitutional, but no sane politician, judge, or lawyer would dare touch it. Political suicide again.

It should be left to the retailers to enforce or not.

Unless I missed it, there is no causal studies showing porn leads to predictable, verifiable negative health risks. We don't allow minors to buy that either.

And anyone trying to get such laws void would be doing the equivalent of political suicide. Most of our porn legistlation has their roots going way back into the 1800s which makes it very difficult to undo since we have been dealing with them for so long. That doesn't make those laws right by any means, and it doesn't justify the current crusades against video games.

Video games are much newer and gets the same protection that has been extended to music, television, film, and books since it is a recognized media for speech (as much as certain parties would tell you otherwise) of which its predicessors have already fought long and hard for their own 1st Amendment protections.

But it begs the question why haven't legislators learned from past similar laws and worded their law in a non vague way?

Pandering to demographics in an election year. Video games are a fairly easy target to demonize for support. By the time the laws get stuck down, they are already in office.

Gamespot says that polygonal graphics weren't known to the masses before Virtua Racer? o rly?

PC games were using 3d faaaar before that.

PC games weren't really known to the masses back then, which did limit their influence. Arcades and consoles were well known to the masses at that time.

Still, the absence of either Wolf3D or Doom is suspect.

And how is a parent - busy as they are - supposed to have the time to monitor every piece of music and video games the kid wants?

They *gasp* make the time talk to them and find out what their kids are interested in. No one said the job of being a parent was easy, even through that seems to be the expectation lately.

G-Rod, as he is known here in Chicago, is a doofus.

And thats from the part of the state that likes him. Get a few miles outside of Chicagoland and the names get much worse. Unfortunately we have to put up with him for at least another 11 months :/

If stores like Wal-Mart (which sell the vast majority of games) are forced to ID people who want to buy mature rated games, they will simply NOT SELL THOSE GAMES.

I doubt it. The Wal-Marts around where I live have been carding for M-rated games for the last year or two. Any M-rated game scanned brought up a message telling the clerk to check IDs, even on the self-checkouts.

"Anyone else think that this guy is indeed the Devil, ahem, Derek Smart"

That isnt DS. It is one of his minions though. DS does have his name registered here... but apparently not enough kittens/goats/babies have been sacrificed to summon him yet.

Darn it nin, you need to sacrifice bigger stuff nowadays to summon Derek. Squirrels and chipmunks only gets his lackeys which just aren't quite as fun to read.

"For us to be successful at E3, we've got to be credible, and we've got to convince people we're a real company with a product shipping this year," Bachus said.

Isn't that pretty much admitting that they don't have a chance?

Most installers have the warning that you need to turn off your virus scanners and any other programs running in the backround. I guess this one just takes a more active approach.
