I love that comment following the Louis Vuitton link.

I'd like to raise my hand to that as well.

Why would Apple make these kind of statements publicly...is there a psychological strategy for doing so...or are they just stupid?

What do you want me to do for you Apple...cry you a river?

There's weak demand for anything a consumer feels is unnecessary or overpriced. DDR4 falls into this category also.

But instead of dropping prices and re-establishing good will between consumers the DDR4 industry wants to keep production low and keep selling at criminal prices.

I have a Samsung Galaxy phone that 5 is generations old now and while I've thought about going up a generation or two I don't really find it mandatory to do so.

I already claimed this free game last December. How about a free DLC for me this year?

I've yet to play this game (or even install it). Maybe a free DLC would inspire me to do so.

Oh shit, they are finally bringing in the M32 Grenade Launcher!

The new weapons sound good, but I may be getting KF2'd out, I have over 350hours played according to Steam. Game fatigue setting in.

Also, the game has slowly been growing in size as they keep adding new official maps, closer to 50gigs now, I think... it's becoming harder and harder as all new games balloon in size as well, to keep KF2 installed for occasional sessions.

Come on man, how can you deny Gary Busey? He's a legend. And the solution to your storage problem is simple. 1TB SSD for Christmas. Your problems all solved.

You're welcome!

Well, I think the message from the community of, let's use the word "devoted and passionate" Diablo fans (to be kind) , is clear now.

"Make a proper sequel for Diablo 3 or sacrifice your first born child. No offense!"

The notion that cell phones cause cancer is the technology world's version of Flat Earth Theory.

Your comparison is just a little bit exaggerated in my opinion. You can't blame people for what they accepted as truth 2000 years ago. I seriously doubt there are many people alive today that believe the Earth is flat.

I'd love just to accept as dogma that you know what your talking about but can you please explain how you've come to your own conclusions that it doesn't?

They've already shown that "some" types of early sunscreens that were supposed to protect you from skin cancer actually caused skin cancer. The chemical based sunscreens, iirc. Sunscreens produced by experts in their field of study.

I tend to agree with you based upon an old adage that, "the dose makes the poison". In other words, even though cellphones could theoretically cause cancer given that they produce radiation, it may not be enough to justify blaming them as the sole cause of it. But that's just my very "layman" theory.

I sure don't have the credentials to say for certainty one way or the other.

Therefore, I employ another old adage in my life. "Better to be safe than sorry" and so it's kept off my person most of the time, nearby. The weight of the phone on my body bugs me anyway, even though it's relatively light.

It's possible that this is a lingering theory that was actually true in the past when the size of the antennae and cell phones were larger and required more power to operate.

Why the hell are they concerned with Steam, when you can just type porn in google and you immediately get hardcore porn.

Because TRIGGERED! Duh! Laugh

It's because the conservative Bible-thumpers still think only children play video games, when the average gamer's age is closer to 40 than not.

*sigh* Wrong again. Bible-thumpers huh? Hehehe, okay. I'll use that. It does sound better than Cutter's "religous nuts". Bible-thumpers don't think "only" children play video games. They probably have a more realistic view like, people of all ages play video games. And guess what? Some of them are actually children.

I don't want to get off on a tangent about whether porn is good or bad like some people are trying to do. Yes, I think it is a bad thing but that's not the point of my post for the most part. My only point was that the content filtering system is there only to make people feel good. It's going to keep children/under-aged adults from getting to that porn about as well as our immigration laws are keeping illegal immigrants from entering the country. It's an excuse to sell porn in spite of the inevitable truth that it will not accomplish it's intended purpose. Steam thinks I'm 118. I tell it that every time it warns me about some content in a game trailer possibly having "content not suitable for some viewers". If we allowed kids to use the honor system to verify their age we might as well start allowing it for the purchase of cigarettes and alcohol.

Amongst all the mature, intelligent adults I know porn most certainly does not have a negative stigma attached to it. The only people it has a negative stigma with are dumb religious kook types and hardcore feminazis. And there's no such thing as "porn" anymore. There's every kind of adult entertainment for every sort of taste under the sun now. Most people I know don't really care for the industry standard 'yeah baby' porn anyway. If you have a fetish for it, it's out there. There's nothing abnormal or wrong with it, it's just a different sort of kink.
You only live once, so get your freak on and enjoy it.


All the adults you know, huh? LOL. And you guys talk about porn regularly I'm guessing. Do you share masturbation secrets?

Keeping "porn" from bleeding into all other areas of life has nothing to do with religious beliefs. I don't want to see Penthouse magazine at the checkout stand everytime I buy groceries. There is a such thing as "porn". Your attempt to redefine reality for everyone else by thinking they'll feel ashamed if you throw out a couple of buzzwords like "religous nuts" isn't going to change the negative stigma of porn. I would be ashamed to openly discuss it with any intelligent beings in a public setting. Your words show you completely ignored the substance of my post anyway and "got off" (oops, heheh) on a tangent of "PLEASE, DON"T TAKE MY PORN!". We all get it Cutter. Your a big supporter of "porn". Good for you. I respect the unashamedness you have and your take-no prisoners stance of enjoying. So, enjoy! Just please keep it off the damn grocery checkout stands, FFS!

If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well.

And then eventually they'll sell sex toys, and then regular toys, and then home appliances!!~~~ Where will it end?!

Nobody buys porn movies anymore you old fart Lots of unwashed weebs to buy porn visual novels, however.

You're right, actually. I was born 1900-01-01. So, I'm about 118 years old now, according to Steam according to my Steam account anyway.

The problem is that the content filtering will stop about the same number of children from getting to the adult content as our U.S. Laws are keeping out illegal aliens from entering our country.

It makes people feel good, having a content filtering system (and illegal immigration laws) but they don't really do anything in a real-world scenario. Because they're both easily bypassed and there is no punishment for doing so.

@Beamer and HoSpanky,

I know I'll be attacked like a sheep among a pack of wild wolves but...what the hell...

The arguments, "there's much worse" and "there's way more" aren't really the best ways to justify making porn accessible via Steam are they?

The way I look at it, Gabe Newell is already a billionaire. How much more money does he need? You want to get into the porn business now also?

I guess Steam is no longer just a PC gaming service. If it's expanding beyond that into a porn service it's a little sad to me. If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well. Do we really need another porn service on the Internet? Like there aren't enough already.

I know Steam isn't exclusively an environment for children but porn has a negative stigma attached to it, period. I don't want it bleeding into every area of my life just because it's "okay" for adults. Kids can lie on the Internet easier than they can in real life. You need to present a valid id to purchase cigarettes and alcohol. So, that argument is pretty weak also. It basically justifies Steam's efforts to prevent access to porn for minors by enforcing age verification which we all know is a complete joke on the Internet.

No, I'm a longtime gamer. And this has nothing to do with supply and demand. Thank you for playing.

Ummm, the article is not about supply and demand, you're right. It was a response to your comment about the sustainability of selling "used" games. For some odd reason you didn't quote that part. *sigh*. Funny thing is, your arguing against something that even Bethesda is now defending. The sale of "used" games.

Game Over. Thanks for playing though.

I guess I am stupid. Please explain.

The media you buy a game on is just media and in the case of a CD, that media is worth less than a dollar.

When you buy a game you're paying for the experience. You can't then finish the game and turn around and sell that experience to someone else. That's copyright infringement and it's theft.

Let me see if I can make it clearer. If you buy a game, finish it and then sell it to a chain of 10 friends who each buy it and sell it in turn, then 10 people have played the game.

However the development team only gets credit for 1 copy. Nobody gives a shit about the publishers, but the used game market fucks over the development teams. These teams get paid based on royalties, but the used game market steals royalties.

Does Gamesteal really deserve to resell a game 10 times? Really? Do you think that kind of thing is sustainable.

Like I said, the nuances of this argument are too complex for most people because people are stupid. Over the long term this activity results in developers getting screwed.

But, of course, who gives a shit when you can get a game for $10 off!

Morons.

Are you a developer? Is that why your putting this philosophical view forward? The laws of supply and demand don't ask the question of whether anything is "sustainable". The laws of supply and demand aren't moral laws that ensure justice or "equality" always prevail.

You make statements of opinion as though they were fact.

Let's say that I buy a game that I finish and I never sell it. But I loan it out to friends who want to play it 1 at a time to finish. Does that make it any better? In your eyes the answer is no. You want every single person to pay each time for the experience. You probably even want a single buyer who watches a DVD twice to pay per viewing, isn't that only fair?

Televisions should be turned into single-seated private viewing boxes. Big-Screen televisions should be banned and illegal because if I pay $4.00 to watch a movie On-Demand only 1 person should get that experience for the $4.00 viewing fee, right?

People are still making movies today and they are still making games today. So, I hope that answers your question about sustainability. Gabe Newell is a billionaire. And you can't discount Quake 1 by $10.00 when you can actually own the license to play it for the rest of your life, right now, for the low low price of one-dollar and twenty-four cents. And that's with the publishers and developers blessings.

Yeah, this is pretty ridiculous.

They're trying to "stretch" the law (or at least USSC precedent) with a creative interpretation. And they're banking on the fact that most resellers are so small that they aren't willing to litigate the question. It's the epitome of sleazy...

Someone needs to start an online petition that let's people sign-it stating it is their intention NOT to purchase any Bethesda products until a public apology is given. With Eternal DOOM and Rage 2 on the release horizons this could hurt them deeply IF people actually took a stand and upheld their intentions. How utterly ridiculous of Bethesda.

I think, like most other aspects of life, it's the middle-man that would be most scared of litigation. Rich people might not care and poor people would have not much to lose.

"Hotel Influenza" would be like "FREE" money for both of them. Cuz that shit is all based on science. And we all know how dope science is, right? They've had 63 years now to perfect these "flu" vaccines. It's gotta be nearing perfection now. And since they both have a "very basic understanding" of how these things work, what could go wrong, say, 5, 10, or 15 years down the road? Nothing. I'd actually be very disappointed if they don't take full advantage of this opportunity.

If vaccines lead us to the same pots of gold that we found at the end of the anti-biotics and pesticides era's, it's not going to end well. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, right. Why worry about it today?
I am beyond baffled by this type of thinking.

What part baffles you? Antibiotic resistance in humans? Super weed resistance in pesticides? Incubation period of CJD being as long as 11-12 years before you even have a clue that you have the disease from eating contaminated meat or getting it through a needle somewhere along life's long journey? Please, explain what part baffles you exactly.

Here I'll help your mind become unbaffled by providing you your first link into understanding just a bit about where antibiotics and pesticides have taken us.

Super Weeds

Prepare thine self to be unbaffled, oh baffled one. Click with courage and educate thy self.

@Cutter,

With all due respect, I think were just gonna have to agree to disagree.

Your comments are just weird. "in spite of the fact that there are some superbugs developing"?????? That's called a ******* "red flag" for those of you who are just tuning in!!! LOL.

So, now that we see what's happening, we just keep going down that road?

Look, I don't think me and you disagree all that much. I got all my shots that schools required when I was a child. But like you, I haven't ever went out and got a flu shot by my own choice and I never will.

You started your post respectfully and then you digressed into "name calling". Oh well, were all guilty sometimes I guess.

Science tells us the Earth has been here 3 billion years. What is it called, carbon dating? By way of extrapolation. Okay, that's a reasonable tool. A reasonable assumption. So, that's the truth for now.

What your own statements should reveal to you, is that there are probably better ways to accomplish the same goals we need to start finding them and stop defending things that are proving not to be ideal.

If farmers would rotate their crops and let their land rest every 7 years we might not need pesticides at all. "But losing a years worth of crops? Hell No. Not gonna give up all that money".

I'm not going into the discussions of polio and tetanus and all that jazz because I haven't invested enough time, research and energy to know enough about it.

If I skip getting a shot out of fear, and you run out and get your shot out of fear, how is fear not controlling both of us? I don't skip everything out of fear.

Why are we even arguing? Me and you both don't get flu shots? We're like brothers now dammit!
