My online Sarkeesian guide: When dealing with a professional victim, carefully step away with both hands raised in the air. Avoid eye contact and don't make any sudden moves, be extra careful not to move your hips or crotch in any way that might be interpreted as suggestive. Do not speak, and if possible do not breathe until you are at least 500 meters away from the person in question. Once you are at least 500 meters away, turn around and run away as fast as possible. Don't look back. EVER.

THREE DLC PACKS ON RELEASE? You gotta be fucking kidding me... Well, here goes one game which I was awaiting with great anticipation to buy that I'll be pirating on release with all DLCs included. Fuck'em.

Now MoO remake, don't make that same "DLC puke in the plate" mistake please. Thanks!

You know, you could just wait a month or three and buy it for 50-60% off instead of stealing it. No one owes you a free game on release day. Quite a few games I've waited 1-2 years to buy simply to get the GOTY edition for $10.

As for stealing vs copying:
One reason something costs more than something else is the amount of money it takes to create it. For some products this represents maybe two hours of labor, but $50 in materials. For others, it might be 50,000 hours of labor, and nothing in materials. A car might take thousands of man-hours to create, and use thousands in materials, hence it costs $20,000. A video game also takes thousands of man-hours to create, while having no physical costs. However, you still have to pay the creators of the game the same as you have to pay the guys that put doors on the cars and built the engines that go into them. It's simply a medium that lends itself to theft more easily.

The guys that are working on this game decided to really focus on PC development to make a game specifically for PC enthusiasts, and by stealing the game, you are essentially sending a big "FU" to them, and telling them to go focus on console games where DRM can ensure they are paid for their hard work.

Except you see, the way it usually works (not in indie development) is that the publishers already pay the developers for all of their man hours, the developers see a tiny cut of the sales if they see one at all, and the publisher makes most of the profits anyway. Moral of the story? Is copying the same as stealing? No. Is it still wrong? Yes, yes it it. But it's still not the same as stealing.

Gotta love these US lawmakers of yours. If anything, they are predictable. Their "Death to Taxes" and "Glory to Free Markets" is a constant and staunch rallying cry for the oppressed corporate overlords, no matter their disposition, no matter their politics, as long as they have green in their pockets.

There's a rumor they're making an SP portion for this. Anyone have any inside info?

That rumor is wrong. There is another Mechwarrior game in the making but it's got nothing to do with Piranha (thank god), it's the turn based Mechcommander game, can't remember what it's called exactly, that got kickstarted a couple of months ago.

Doom omg, first game I had to upgrade my PC for. 4MB of RAM does not cut it! that programming monster ate 8MB for it and the Windows to run.

Doom and Doom2 worked fine with 4 MB of memory if you knew how to pimp your config.sys and autoexec.bat files in DOS

Been considering the Intel Core i7 5960X myself, as I'm at a point where I'd like to put together a full system... Also considering the Intel PCIe 1.2 TB SSD (2.4k read vs the usual ~540 for drives), but I'm not sure I want to throw that much money at a new system... On the fence ; )

Throw in a 980 Ti and I'm up to over $3k for the system, which is likely going to run 20% faster than my current heh... But it's fun to buy stuff, so we'll see ; )

No reason why you should go for the i7 over the i5 if all you do is gaming.

I like Elite:Dangerous. What I didn't like is the grind. I stopped playing when I figured out the only way to actually progress to a better fighting ship, is to sell my pimped Cobra, and buy a freighter. I was like...Wtf? Did they add new combat missions, because there were like 4 or 5 types the last time that I played, they were repetitive as fuck and really earned peanuts...

Im not sure Gsync is worth it. Im thinking of buying a new monitor and everyone Ive asked swears by the 144Hz monitors. Apparently you can't notice the screen tearing and the smoothness and response is almost on the level of the old CRTs.

MS trying to take a page from the Apple playbook.... "you'll fucking take this and you'll like it. we said so"

thing is, the average person, the majority - eventually they will fall in line just like the fucking sheep they are... they dont have the intelligence or the will to dis-OBEY for very long, especially once it stops being fashionable

so get ready for all this because its happening

You gotta use the nice carrot once in a while though. What MS Is doing is mostly using a carrot-painted stick. Thats the difference between Apple and MS. Apple makes you WANT to belong, MS forces you to belong OR ELSE. You see Apple's closed garden is actually pretty nice. MSs garden is anything but closed, although they are trying to turn it into a prison, and not that nice. In fact Im pretty sure those are dead cats in the garbage dump in the corner...

As usual, lots of whiners. Windows 10 is a better OS than the prior versions, so why wouldn't you update?

Thats either a typo, or bullshit. You can't throw engineers at games to build them faster or better. After a while the law of diminishing, or even negative returns kicks in.

This ship took a real long time to get in the water. I read about it first about 2 years ago. It was basically in dry dock, and delayed, but the crew was aboard doing exercises. They made a joke about the skippers name back then too.

Basically, VR headsets are going to tease the shit out of us for eternity and never ACTUALLY come out. That's how it feels, anyway.

Yep, but Im not complaining. It's gonna take a while for this tech to mature anyway. I doubt I could even push the pixels for it properly with my GTX970. By 2017 once all three major competitors in the VR market release their gear, things will be clearer.
