Montana State legislator J.D. Shill, "I had a bill that would let farmers fix their own tractors. Then John Deere wrote me a big check and I dropped that bill." Or something to that effect, but with a lot more verbal garbage being thrown.

If I were interested in getting yet another copy of Skyrim, I would wait at least six months for all the unintended consequences of the compiler change to shake themselves out. I find it telling that Bethesda chose to do this in the most disruptive manner available to them, rather than finding a way to do it without breaking every mod made over the last decade. Bethesda of 10 years ago would not have done this in this fashion.

'Smart' appliances are anything but smart. Until there is something resembling security in the IoT, I am staying as far away from 'smart' anything as I can get.

Absolutely the stupidest concept I have ever heard of. Hey, let's take two IPs that have nothing to do with each other, and mash them together!
They aren't mixing IPs, they're adding Ian Fleming to the story in a semi-historical capacity, based on what he actually did during WWII. It's a cameo appearance, nothing more.

Third-party sellers aren't just trying to buy off bad reviews, they're trying to buy positive ones from customers that have not reviewed a purchase, as well. Not only via email, but through snail mail. Amazon may have 'outlawed' the practice, but that hasn't seemed to stop anyone at all from continuing to buy reviews.

EA gets plenty of credit for it's efforts with acquired studios. Plenty of press coverage, too. They'll get better coverage when they stop grinding those acquisitions into dust after sucking the franchises they bought the studios for dry.

This card will be a great deal, once the 7000 series cards come out. Until then, and an overall easing of the chip shortage in general, my 10-year-old FX-8350 and RX Vega 64 are going to have to keep on keeping on.

This is a risk anytime you license items (cars, songs, teams, etc) from third parties for a game. When the license for the items expire, and you choose not to renew said license, you have to pull the product using that licensed content. This is the same reason movies and shows change on Netflix every month. Yes, it would be better if Microsoft actually explained this, but the explanation wouldn't change their pulling the game from their store.

Activision hasn't been caring or compassionate since Kotick became CEO. Blizzard is now stuck with this troll until such time as someone can buy them out from under his clearly horrible leadership.

Wasn't Riot as emphatic about treating employees well and taking all claims of inappropriate behavior seriously? And Ubisoft, as well? Yet all of these companies are ending up in court because nothing ever changes.

This seems to be the state of most games at launch. Just about every AAA title shipped in the last five years could have used at least another six months of bug fixing before being shipped, and most would have been better off with another year of bug fixing and polishing before being released. QA is a completely lost art in all things tech-related anymore.

70$ for the game and 120$ of DLC including the ending.
You can get all three of the original games for $55 (+ tax) on Amazon for physical copies, $17 (+ tax) for download copies. Most of the bugs have been fixed by now, too.

It's way too early to compare the differences in performance between Windows 10 and Windows 11, unless you're just in it for the clicks your clickbait article will generate.

Happy birthday to Mrs. Blue! Very glad you're okay, Blue! I wish you all the luck in Ireland that you'll be able to find a replacement vehicle that hasn't had its price jacked up too much due to scarcity.

While they are correct that laws need to be updated (a decade ago) to reflect the realities of the digital economy, I can't help but think that a bunch of grumpy old people with axes to grind are not going to come up with a non-punitive solution for this.

So EA's security is as solid as their games are on launch. Good to know.

AT&T is under the rash assumption that Stadia will be around for another six months.
