News Comments > Bethesda Blocked Game Sale Because of "New" Designation

If it's still in its original unopened packaging, its new. Fuck you Bethesda. No one buys your shitty excuse, because everyone who is shopping on Amazon knows what "New" means.

Trump's tariffs are a great litmus test to see which Trump supporters are mentally retarded, and which are just partisan hacks.

The tariffs are objectively bad for the US. No one on the right or left wants tariffs. It's bad for everyone. Bad for Dems, bad for Reps. Bad for the consumer, bad for businesses, bad for politicians trying to line their pockets.

Being in favor of these tariffs is like being in favor of taking a hot poker to the urethra. You're either masochistic, or need to be institutionalized.

The tariffs are nothing more than Trump once again finding out some unilateral power he has and then using it just because he can.

Russia can you just nuke us and end this already? I'm tired.

Does Denuvo have any phone-home that can break? I don't recall hearing that it does but I don't pay much attention.

I don't really have a strong opinion one way or the other, to me DRM is just invisible most of the time anyway. I do find it amusing how anti-DRM Blue's used to be and now everyone's in favor of putting as much DRM on as possible as long as it keeps cheapskates from getting free games.

I guess the industry wore customers down to the point where it's just accepted now?

Denuvo rocks. Fuck the scummy stealing little pirate fuckfaces with a hot metal rod.

Denuvo games get cracked more easily these days. Not worth the licensing fee and bad PR imo, whatever it is.

Sort of interesting. Not usually a fan of heavy curation for this kind of stuff but I'll look at what they put up when it goes live. Nothing to lose really since I've already got Discord up all the time.

Forgive an old fart for asking but how does Discord interact with Steam/Origin/etc? It can show everyone what I'm playing cross-client? Does it do cross-client chat or just through their own app? If I'm using Discord and someone else is only on Steam, can I message them through Discord? As more and more of these stupid launchers proliferate from publishers, I find something like this more attractive. I had something similar in the past but it would always break because they used unofficial client hooks or something so whenever something updated they would need to fix it manually.

I should probably just download it and try it but I keep getting busy with house projects. What I really want is an iMessage clone for gaming on Windows. Apple gets a lot of shit but iMessage is fucking great.

I'm actually not sure about all that. It has integration with Steam but I've never tried it so I don't know what all it can do. (I tend to be hesitant about linking together a bunch of accounts) Even without integration you can have it show what game you're playing, though. And that works for at least Steam, Origin and uPlay that I've seen.

35. Re: Twitter will not ban InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones Aug 9, 2018, 11:24 NKD
 
More shit to add to the pile.

In short, Alex Jones' lawyer is pushing to get the Sandy Hooks parents addresses made public. There's no reason to do this other than to intimidate them and threaten them with the wrath of his crazy fans. If he's not interested in harassing these families, why does he care if their addresses are public?

I don't really recall seeing any alt-right propaganda on The Escapist? And you all know how much I love to bitch about the alt-reich.

I expect they'll settle to just save time and effort, but you never know. If they push it their comments probably won't meet the standard of libel. It's very hard to make a libel case in the United States.

True. there needs to be provable damages for legal action to be effective. But there needs to be some accountability for all of today's name-calling. Calling someone a member of the KKK could cost the person jobs and business opportunities. So they'd damn well better be a member if you're going to accuse them. The term "alt-right" has garnered the same pejorative power among today's ctrl-left and has been used to attack people's jobs and livelihood. If that person is not a "member" of this amorphous group, then the name-caller should be held accountable. And considering that "alt-right" generally means "someone I disagree with for not being as regressively left wing as I am," it seems like that would be a hard membership to prove.

That amorphous nature works against them more than for them I think. The definition of what "alt right" even is, is very fuzzy, even among those of us on the left. It would be hard to prove that a person knew you weren't alt-right when there isn't a clear definition to begin with and people are working with so many different sets of criteria. Having to prove malice AND knowledge that what they are saying wasn't true is a huge burden.

If I accuse you of being a KKK member but there's no evidence or even insinuation that you've ever attended a KKK rally or worn a ghost cosplay, it's a lot easier to make the case. If I accuse you of being an asshole, it's impossible for it to be libel because it doesn't really have a definition and could mean anything.

EU courts are, if we get really nitpicky, not in any way democratically legitimized.

Interesting. I often under estimate the difference between how the US and EU are setup.

I don't know how you can attribute nutters going after sandyhook victims solely at Alex Jones,

Who said anything about solely? He's simply the loudest voice pushing that garbage, not the only one.

You might feel some sort of smug satisfaction over his removal from these platforms but it seems instead of people being driven away from his rhetoric it's having the opposite effect.

I haven't seen any outpouring of mainstream support for Alex Jones. His removal has riled up the alt-right and his whackjob fanbase, but they are already turned up to 11 constantly.

It was for an educational project. Is there no such thing as Fair Use in Germany?

European courts have fuck all to do with Germany... this is another absurd pro-copyright ruling from the EU moneybags.

I don't follow it too closely but it seems like EU is even more pro-copyright than the US? Would you say that's correct?

Why is it so difficult for people to just ignore things you don't like and go about your life? You act like youtube is the 24/7 Alex Jones show (which it probably will be with thousands of people uploading Alex Jones clips now, it's going to turn into the new Rick Roll Troll). Does Facebook force people to visit the Info War page or something? Did Apple automatically make you download his podcast?

You're all embracing corporate censorship like they're some sort of benevolent benefactor to society, will you feel the same way when corporations like Bayer exert their power over removing all content disparaging their fine, extremely safe products from these same social media platforms? Do you think the government will only force corporations to censor things you also want to see censored?


It's your precious free market at work bro. Certain opinions become liabilities, and there is financial incentive to censor to avoid pissing off your other customers/victims.

Let me ask you, how would you feel if some guy was on YouTube yelling at his millions of followers that you were perpetrating a massive hoax and are lying about your kid being killed, and you had to constantly deal with harassment and threats? How would you feel after everyone told you to just "Ignore them." because "We can't censor anyone!"

Wikileaks has come out in defense of Info Wars. Not out of principle, but defending the merit of the actual content they produce.

Remember when Wikileaks was reputable and not just trying to smear western nations at the behest of the Russians?

Assange always had an agenda, but it definitely got worse and more destructive once Wikileaks became an arm of the GRU.

Yeah this definitely isn't a shocker to me. They don't give a shit how much disgusting garbage you spew if you have a large enough following. I think the only person I can think of from the Conservatroll community who got banned was that Milo Yanni..uh..yiannioloctopus (not polluting my Google history to learn to spell this idiots name).
