When the hell are they ever going to make some real Pathfinder CRPGs? It just begs for an NWN style game.

I seriously doubt the courts will even hear the case. He was stabbed and presumably fighting for his life with an armed robber, there's no such thing as excessive force in such a case. Even if for some insane reason this case was allowed to proceed there isn't a jury in the land that would convict the guy - except some liberal SJW jury I suppose, oh but probably not because the robber was white in this case anyway.

There actually is such a thing as excessive force in self defense, even the castle doctrine.
By his own account to police, Smith was in the basement when he shot Brady twice at the top of the basement stairs, and once in the face fatally after he fell to the bottom of the stairs. Minutes later when Kifer entered the basement, he shot her at the top of the stairs. Wounded, she fell down the stairs, and after Smith's rifle jammed, he shot her multiple times in the chest with a 22-caliber revolver, dragged her across the floor to set her beside the body of her cousin, and then shot her fatally under the chin

He wasn't fighting for his life after being stabbed. That's not even remotely close to a legitimate comparison. It's not in the same ballpark, hell it's not even in the same town.

Really need those giant blue arrows to indicate which way to turn on sections where there's no other way to go. Cross roads fine, but they over did it, even the half circle checkpoint markers aren't needed or wanted.

They took a game with decent graphics and ruined it.

God forbid all those ADD millennials should have to pay attention.

I always just look at the overall and recent %'s then go straight to the recent reviews to see the current state of the game and why people would be reviewing it up or down.

Sure you’re saving money....until you have a stroke or a heart attack from the morbid obesity, sugar, and salt, you’ve been consuming. Then the medical industry takes all you have and then some. So, no more is not always better.

I don't see anything that suggests that the creator put Pepe the Frog in the public domain, which isn't a thing that happens automatically until 75-120 years after the creator dies.

And you don't seem to be using copyright and trademark correctly. The frog is a copyrighted work. You don't lose a copyright by not defending it, and you can selectively sue whomever you want to sue.

A trademark is a brand name or logo. You have to register trademarks with the government to get the force of law on your side, and then you do have to use and defend it or it's gone. But what you're defending against is people using Legos as a generic term for building blocks, Q-Tips for cotton swabs, and so on. Trademark - a mark of trade, i.e., a brand; the courts let those lapse because once everyone is calling a vacuum flask a thermos they're not going to let the former owner take a million people to court.

I think you're really wrong on this, but if there's something that shows that this frog is in the public domain, or that you lose copyrighted works of art by not defending them, post it here.

Plus, you've got Cutter on your side, so that's not a good sign.

This is exactly why I was asking. I looked around a bit, but don't see anything about him putting Pepe in the public domain, so I had no idea what he was talking about. As far as I can tell, that never happened.

It's not a good idea to listened to brain-damaged morons like him.

The article says, "despite the company's assurances that it had spent billions hardening its systems after 90% of its customers lost power to 2005's Hurricane Wilma."

Hmm, "assurances" -- I wonder if they actually did spend billions hardening the systems or simply claim to have...

Oh I'm sure the money is spent, just not on the utilities as they claim.

What do you mean, "places it into the public domain"? Apparently not if the copyright has been enforced.
Copyright is automatic after the 1976 BERN convention. If you create a work you have copyright, but you can waive or in his case -- place it into the public domain. That leaves him with nothing.

Exactly. He doesn't like certain people using it so now he's trying to go 'backsies' and make a claim. If a judge ruled in his favor it's in error and will most certainly lose on appeal to a higher court.

Well of course they couldn't beat lefist feminist agenda show, The Handmaid's Tale. God forbid a show ever win on its own merits instead of current politics. This is why all these awards shows are utterly useless.

Perhaps you didn't know that the Handmaid's Tale is based on a book by the same name, published in 1985. Would you consider 1985 "current politics" for the "leftist feminist agenda"? Have you watched the show in order to judge it by its own merits?

I've watched a few episodes of Handmaid's Tale, all of Stranger Things, and all of Westworld. For me, hand's down, Stranger Things was the best of those.

Yes, I know it's Atwood's work. I've actually met her on 2 separate occasions and she's pretty cool in person. Regardless, this is a politicized production and the awards ceremonies always sync with current political events. I'm not saying it's a bad show, but it isn't remotely anywhere close to as good as Westworld, or even Stranger Things. It won simple by virtue of the current political client.

Saw the documentary about that Mr. Petrov. The world literally owes that man their lives. If it had been some hawkish psycho in the nuclear silo the odds are none of us would be here right now. Thanks for that M. Petrov!

That was a nice tribute to 'ol Harry.

What did these guys do right, that games like DayZ and H1Z1 didn't?

Even as far as shooters go, the one shot, no respawns king of the hill games were never exactly popular.

Personally, I'm stoked at their achievement, but I just don't get it.

Because it's the flavor of the moment. It was like Minecraft. Soon as something starts to take off everyone wants to get on board to see what the hubub is about. Remember Pet Rocks? They made a fortune with those and they're fucking rocks.

Did you check out The Deuce yet, Blue? NYC, 1971, oh so good!

$750k for almost dying - not to mention the cost of the healthcare, etc. - seems awful low for such a serious matter.

That CERN shot looks fake to me.
