I'd get a ticket if they'd let me use virtual money.

If anyone other than Verizon had even a half-assed signal where I live, I would switch in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, the closest anyone gets is eighth-assed, which is T-Mobile, or sixteenth-assed, which is a tie between AT&T and Sprint, both of whom required playing a form of Hide-and-Go-Seek to find a signal while remaining indoors. T-Mobile just has a weak-to-suddenly-nonexistent signal, with random bits of decent connection scattered here and there.

Mid-term elections aren't that far off and a lot of folks up for re-election would like to be able to say they helped pass a law "to protect children" and "stop the purveyors of sex", especially if they're in Midwestern or Southern states. This law won't end up doing anything but moving the crimes to somewhere else on the Internet while driving many Internet companies out of business.

The part that sucks about the Dish lawsuit is that you have to have a recording of the call to get any money. The only ones who win here are the lawyers for both sides.

Because Mike O'Reilly and Ajit Pai are literally human garbage, and probably ordered their 'guards' to assault people? Because the president recommends physically assaulting people who disagree with you, and suing the press?


The answer you're looking for is, "Because we now live in a banana republic."

Also, not sure why the word 'Manhandling' is in quotes as if they weren't actually manhandled. When you shove someone into a wall, and forcibly remove them from a building, that's just manhandling, not 'manhandling.'

They wanted to show physically what they're doing to consumers' rights metaphorically.

Considering how many flaws Cisco has had to patch in their own stuff, they must be speaking for themselves and their products, not just projects. IoT is certainly not going away, but manufacturers and vendors had better start securing things or it will remain the hodgepodge of garbage that it currently is for quite some time to come.

If Comcast means in the "you'll do things the way we tell you to or you won't get to do them at all" way, then yes, they are like Apple.

They were a victim of people's outrage and their shitty servers couldn't handle it, that's all.

Most schedules look good, right up until you can't meet it and have to push things back a few months.

This article is most certainly pretentious and spends an inordinate amount of time citing the works of various authors who have attempted to posthumously psychoanalyze H.P. based solely on his fiction, rather than spending most of its space on laying out in a concrete fashion just why video games cannot be Lovecraftian. It seems more that the author doesn't care much for video games in general, and horror games in particular, and feels that video games are a waste of time and energy that could be better used to belittle people that read comic books and watch television.

If the music industry had even tried keeping up with the times, piracy would be a footnote. The RIAA has no one to blame but themselves and the absolute boatloads of crap they try to pass off as music for any drop in revenue they think they see.

A friend and I played through the original Night Trap in one night. We rented the game and the Sega CD unit to use with my friend's Sega Genesis, so we got our money's worth there. It was pretty cheesy and involved remembering the sequence of events in the proper order to beat the game. Still, it was a decent use of FMV at the time.

News Comments > Vivendi and Ubisoft to Finally Get a Room?

Vivendi really needs to stop buying video game companies, unless they're dead set on going under at some point. Their track record in video games is horrible, with Atari as a prime example of how to take a well-respected brand and drive it mercilessly into the ground and bury it forever. Since they're trying to acquire their way into profitability, I doubt they're doing very well in any aspect of their businesses, so buying more companies is only going to accelerate their eventual demise.

My Windows 10 tablet is convinced there is a virus in the Evil's Doom download. I'd rather not play it than find out it was right.

That has to be illegal in most, if not all, states, especially when dealing with juveniles. This is access to evidence, kind of like how the poor and elderly are going to end up with access to healthcare.

The version on GOG.com comes with the original game, as well as the EE version. If you already have the original, you'll still have it. If not, buying the EE version will be the only way to get it on GOG now.
