That looks pretty sweet.

A shame about split screen though. I don't own a console, and split screen on PC with my kids would have been a ton of fun.

Again, to people like Tumblr, so the dev team can either charge what they themselves need in order to eat, but then everyone that lives in a poorer region will pirate. Or they can charge what everyone in the poorer region can pay, but then they're poor themselves. Or they can regionalize pricing.

Regional pricing is the best solution to a tricky issue. Yes, Doom might cost $5 in Cambodia and $50 in Canada. But in Cambodia, unlike Canada, you might have slow intermittent internet, and electricity only for half of the day, and have to boil your drinking water. The vast majority of Canada endures none of these hardships, but the reason is because their economy is strong enough to have a much larger tax base to support the infrastructure that makes life safer and easier. And more expensive games is part of that.

And it's not like Cutter doesn't get "free" benefits like the security of being neighbors with the USA and under the protection of the most powerful military in the world. I'm not even sure why Canada bothers spending on defense at all. Their current minuscule 1% of GDP spending would be able to defend a determined opponent anyway.

I wonder, did they take down torrent listings when someone posted all the requisite info?

No, they regularly took down torrents with notes at the listing header such as "Removed by request of the copyright holder".

So basically, they kept hunting and hunting until they found something to nail these guys with? People at Ars are making the point that the remedy here should be civil, not criminal. Usually extradition treaties apply when both countries have the same law. Does Poland have a DCMA equivalent?

Also, I wonder what the specific evidence is? They're charging the guy with "with one count of conspiracy to commit criminal copyright infringement, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, and two counts of criminal copyright infringement."

Given how many torrents there are out there, that's not very many criminal copyright infringement counts. Also, wouldn't it just be the case that he could be charged with that if he uploaded them himself? (The conspiracy and money laundering charges are separate)

I'm sure Cutter practices what he preaches. When he goes out for a Thai meal of Panang curry, rice, and spring rolls, and the bill comes in for $20, he leaves $2, since "Charging some people a lot more and some a lot less depending on where they live for the same meal is really scummy.." and $2 is what it costs in Thailand.

Just saw BvS, what a waste, not even a cave troll could save it.
But at least Suicide Squad looks good.

Did you watch theatrical edition or ultimate edition? I heard the latter has a better narrative flow, and is what Zack intended from the beginning. Although at 3 hours long...

And that is just one of the reasons why watching the GOP self destruct is so satisfying.

It has been so satisfying to watch them forced to reap what they had sown. The sad thing is that most of them don't understand how things got this way.

A few do. Douthat and Salam's column from the other day expressed some common sense changes for the GOP:

- Stop using the military option as the first resort for foreign policy troubles

- A more reasonable immigration policy

- More support for the poor

- Higher taxes (or at least no more tax cuts) on the rich to keep the government solvent and give the poor and middle class more take-home pay

- More support for Social Security

- Less overt racism and non-overt dog-whistles

Of course Douthat and Salam also got a nasty backlash when they suggest these changes.

So I've seen one video saying the bots were pretty stupid (like, just standing in place), but another saying it depends on the difficulty. I'll be curious how it turns out...


Yeah, waiting to hear full info on bots for this game. Hopefully someone will try it out and let us know.

Cutter wrote on Jul 20, 2016, 23:09:
The teen defendant, identified in court papers as M.H., was sentenced to 60 days probation and was barred from social media. "We are going to come back in 60 days. I'm going to see how you are doing. If I have any more problems with you, you are going into custody," the juvenile judge told the boy at his sentencing hearing.

The boy appealed, saying he had committed no crime for his 2013 filming. The three-judge appeals court did not agree in a unanimous opinion.

So the little bastard - or his parents - appeal 60 days probation? On top of which that punk was threatening other kids with physical violence if they told on him.

Why the fuck is he not in juvy? Or CPS because his parents sound like garbage.

Because he's white. If he was black, he'd have been tried as an adult.

Yup, still waiting for Mech single player ala Mechwarrior 2.

Maybe in the next decade.

I would love a modern MW game with a narrative driven campaign, a la MW 2, 3, 4. Still, if they just added bots to MWO, I would enjoy playing that from time to time. Just not interested in playing online.

Hoping someone makes a VR mech game, similar to the way you can play Elite in VR.

Gaming isn't worth people dying over/for.

Nothing wrong with dying do what you love. Most people never get that opportunity. Most of us just die by inches.


That's true. Though I never understood the frantic desire to do everything possible if a person realizes he/she will die soon. 1) Why not do it now anyways? 2) The dying person will either never remember or he/she will be going to a better place and probably won't care.


Just admit it Bobbob, you'll die a happy man if you do it riding your bike along the beach.

Really love this game, its RC soccer with a beachball. Once you get better at prediction and flying its just so great. The learning lumps with other players can be tough but eventually you get really good and it becomes super fun/rewarding.

I've got the game PC hooked up to the big screen TV and I love that I can play split screen with the kids, and the wife doesn't harangue me about game violence. Win-win-win!
