They could have about 10 million WOW subscribers if they make vanilla progression servers available.

ISPs are going to have a huge problem. The FCC's recently concluded "Lifeline Internet" pilot program was designed to make high-speed Internet available for $9.25 a month in all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia (More information). This action makes the Internet a public utility. ISPs cannot apply "net neutrality" rules to public utilities. In fact, whenever they tried in the past to become monopolies the government would step in and force them to break up; even if they were publically traded companies. Remember Pacific Bell's breakup in the 80's? I think this should happen to ISPs. Too many of them have become enormous regional monopolies.

TL;DR "In March of 2016, the FCC modernized Lifeline for advanced services by beginning a transition toward support of broadband service." The Internet is a public utility like sewer, water, heat, and electricity.

Yeah, you just keep mollycoddling the Muslims and see where that gets you. And all Blue's censorship in the world won't change that. You guys just keep rationalizing away as the bodies pile up and the blood spills on the street. Not every muslim is a terrorist but they are extremists. Apostasy? Death. Homosexuality? Death. Women rights? Death. Give your fucking heads a shake.

I encourage you to watch The Twilight Zone episode "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" and the Star Trek: Next Generation episode "The Drumhead". Hopefully you get the point of the episodes.

Just ot back from warcrack, I thought it was decent. Very much a movie made for the fans...if you liked the series, I'd be a little surprised if you didn't like the movie.


I heard the story is based on actual Warcraft, the story that was first told in the RTS games and not WoW? That's pretty cool if so and makes me want to see it more (really hate wow and like the story from the originals). I've read other sites where people complain that it's not a "wow" story which makes me laugh. They actually think "wow" is the start of it.

Liberties were taken with the source material and lore, but the vast majority of the film is the based on Jeff Grubb's Warcraft: The Last Guardian. As they say "the book is better than the movie".

Really enjoyed the Warcraft film but I understand why people would complain about it. The film desperately needs a 10 minute prologue, like the one that appeared in Fellowship of the Ring.

That seems like a very relevant point. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow.

This announcement was made on the Playstation site for Playstation customers, and where the PS4 is available for sale the release date has changed to 8/9. The release date for the PC version on Steam and other sites has not changed. It's still showing June 21.

TL;DR PC Master Race

So are you guys off today or Monday? Our long weekend was last week.

Memorial Day is Monday, though many companies also let people out early today as part of the long weekend.

Yup! My manager is off today. My coworkers are off today (one in Santa Cruz, another heading to San Francisco for his sons college graduation). I'm out of here at noon. Good opportunity to see Captain America and buy a new law mower.

LOL at all this talk over that Vanilla server, when servers like Warmane make millions of dollars a year, and Blizzard doesn't bat an eye.

P.S. Vanilla WoW sucked. Game wasn't worth playing until after the expansions. I had grown bored and quit, a couple years later WoW becomes a phenomenon. It wasn't a phenomenon because of Vanilla.

GameStop is NOT a reliable source. Those guys are notorious for posting misleading release dates. And "Kotaku" and "reliable source" cannot possibly be used in the same sentence.

Anyhow, on the NMS Steam page, which is managed by Hello Games themselves, the release date is still June 21. So as far as I'm concerned June 21 is still a go.

What? No! Nobody saw that coming!

Critics thought Avatar was amazing. They didn't praise it for its story but for its special effects and pushing cinema forward. Contrast that with viewers in Poland who have given Warcraft an average rating of 9.46. There are other movies where critics and movie goers don't agree. Watchmen, for example, did poorly with critics but was praised by movie goers. And more than a few of you - as well as many on MetaCritic - thought the critics were wrong with their high praise for Star Wars The Force Awakens. The bottom line is critics have their viewpoint but it is their's alone. They doesn't reflect the vast majority of people. Basically I'll wait for the user reviews and scores to appear on MetaCritic and Rotten Tomatoes.

You give this massive property to a guy who's made two movies and knows nothing about the property? Yeah that was bound to work out well. Rolleyes

Duncan Jones is actually a fan of the Warcraft games and WOW, and a gamer.

Being a fan of WOW and being a good character writer are mutually exclusive apparently.

I was specifically responding to Cutter's claim that Duncan Jones "knows nothing about the property". Please don't look for meaning beyond that clarifying point.

Rovio was so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should. Certain things cannot be films, and Angry Birds is one of them. There's NO story to this game. It's a casual thing people play in-between waiting for things.

Birds live in peace. Pigs come and steal their eggs. Rather basic story, but still a story.

It would be better suited as a Saturday morning cartoon. Build up enough fans. Created enough stories. THEN create a movie. That's what Hasbro did with Transformers and G.I. Joe in the 80s.

Again, in one week The Angry Birds Movie has made double its budget.

Transformers in the 1980s was an infamous box office flop. GI Joe, therefore, had its theatrical release canceled and was a direct to video film.

You're letting nostalgia ruin this for you. It's a terrible movie, but you're not its audience. The people who are its audience are flocking (no pun) to it. Even correcting for inflation, The Angry Birds has made exponentially more than the GI Joe and Transformers 1980s movies combined. Combined! Transformers made $5.8MM on a $6MM budget. Angry Birds has made $150MM on a $73MM budget.

It looks awful, but clearly they did something right. Hasbro, meanwhile, did not. Not until the new Transformers movies, which actually look worse, yet print money.

If I write "1 + 1 = 2" will you at least acknowledge that's correct?
