“We feel there isn’t a better way to celebrate 20 years of Duke Nukem 3D than to

charge $20 for a re-release."

At least they put in some new content, but I'm still not paying $20 for it.

Vestager on Monday also apologized for the Commission's cases against Google taking so long. "I am as sorry as you and everyone else that antitrust work is taking a lot of time," she said, according to Reuters.

"It's hard to get anything done when you're only in the office twelve days out of every year, and during those twelve days you go to lunch from 9.30am to 3.30 pm."

I like that they're trying to do new things in an FPS game, so kudos to them for that. No idea whether it'll work out or not, so far it seems just too quirky, but I respect the attempt to break out of the Gears of War mold.

But I can't for the life of me figure out why this is called Prey...

Is this basically a huge texture pack mod, or are there any actual game-play or tech changes beyond textures?

The only thing that changes is the renderer. So it's a bit more than just a texture pack, but there are no gameplay changes. (They likely did that so they wouldn't break the majority of the 40000+ mods out there...)

You do have to admit, the technology is impressive. But it's just an engine.

3DMark has always been really impressive too.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - the favorite cell phone of ISIS and Al Quaida breaking sales records in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and elsewhere! Here is what satisfied customers have to say about the Galaxy Note 7: Kim Jong-un: "Best cell ever! Bought a million and will air-drop it for free all over South Korea!"

That's just terrible.

I got an email yesterday about the GeForce GTX 970 Class Action Settlement. I almost deleted it thinking it was spam. I'm surprised it didn't get auto flagged as spam since the title, sender and from email all look fishy, but it's the real deal.

I don't know if I'm going to file a claim. It's $30 in my pocket, but it doesn't feel right since I bought a 970 already knowing about the memory deal. I only skimmed the site to see if I could find out what happens to unclaimed funds from the settlement, but didn't see it. If unclaimed funds are just going to go to lawyers, I'll take my $30. If it goes back to Nvidia or a charity, I may just opt out.

Get your money, dude. There is no limit to the damages, so there's no fund that's been "set aside" for this. If you don't claim your $30, Nvidia simply keeps it.

I admit I was a bit skeptic at first about the legitimacy of this, but I've put in my claim. Fuck 'em. Stop lying in your fucking advertising.

Happy Anniversary, Blue!

In what's sure to provide many more lulz tomorrow, Star Citizen announced that Squadron 42 has been delayed.

Not wrong that US politics at the national level is deeply dysfunctional, but their diagnosis of both the symptoms and the causes of that dysfunction is idiotic, and proposing revolution as a solution imbecilic.

There was a reason I only quoted the very first sentence

If we remove those distorting incentives,

So, the bribes? Because really, that's basically what's wrong with our government. No elected official (bar a few exceptions) does what's right for his constituents anymore, they do what's right for their bottom line.

The absurdity of claiming "corruption" as motivation for revolution is that by measurable standards, the government is orders of magnitude less corrupt than it was a century ago.

Is it really, though? I mean, we don't call it corruption anymore, because it's now legalized. But back then government officials were only interested in lining their own pockets, and now they're, by and large, only interested in lining their own pockets. But now they do it through "campaign contributions" rather than crime. The end result is pretty much the same...

We face problems, but they are fixable, so long as public cynicism hasn't grown so large that no one wants to fix them anymore.

Not in our current system they aren't, I don't think, as our current system IS the problem.

And the fact that Trump has done as well as he has, even if he is more likely than not to lose, makes me worry that we're less interested in fixing our problems and more interested in lashing out in self-destructive ways.

Yep. I mean, I fucking LOATHE Hillary Clinton, but the thought of that fucking oompa loompa becoming president and striving to repeal such things as the banking regulations, and basically going "Hey, Wall Street! FUCK EVERYONE OVER AGAIN!" is just fucking terrifying.

Of course not. A war implies some level of parity between both opponents. So far, Sony has been absolutely trouncing your ass.

Though they have been making non-stop poor decisions lately, so it'll probably get a lot closer again soon.
