No idea why people feel the need to run 2x DRMs at once every time they wanna play.

Excellent, I'll most likely pick this up on Gog, regardless of the negative reviews of it on Bluesnews. I must see for myself!

Precisely this. If Apple invests in testing software to make sure it runs and make sure it's clear of malware, alongside actual distribution of said software, then sure they've earned a cut. If I choose to buy a cosmetic skin for a character in a game... why does Apple deserve 30% of that again? What did they do to earn that?
So you are basically looking 3 or 4 AAA titles before you start deleting or get the expensive SSD expansion. By the time you start adding up all the extras, you might as well build a gaming PC.

Yep. That's how it used to be back in the day. But now that we are in the Age of the Snowflake things are a little different.
Rule no. 1 of generation snowflake: It is never ever your fault. Never. Ever. It is always the fault of your parents, your siblings, your family, your teachers, your boss, your coworkers, the politicians, the cops, your friends, people pretending to be your friends, people in general, society, the system or the man.

the TPP would have addressed china's ip theft. they've just grown too big for america to try to swing its dick around unilaterally and expect effective results.

The launch was exactly as much of a shitstorm as I expected. The nVidia website didn't provide any purchase option from the live date - refreshed constantly for an hour before it showed as out of stock. All the main UK retailers went down: Overclockers, Scan, Ebuyer. I got as far as the payment accepted page on Overclockers once but they it still failed before the order completed. Then tried it again and the price had gone up £50. I had one in the basket for Ebuyer but then the cart failed.
Just your usual capitalist profiteering bullshit.

Agreed. Which is exactly why you should not be texting dudes (or gals) you met 6 months ago in a club somewhere. Or share needles with people. Or have unprotected sex with people you don't know very, very well. etc. etc. etc. When shit happens even if it's not your fault, if you've used bad judgement some of it is on you. That's all Im saying.

Regardless of what the victim did, it's not acceptable.
I agree with you, it's despicable. That doesn't change the fact that people do use bad judgment especially when it comes to relationships with other people. I refrain from doing many things because I usually don't trust my judgement in those situations, let alone with other people.

What victim blaming? In my opinion if you can't have exciting sex without using a camera then there is probably something wrong with you. For those who DO get their kinks doing this kind of thing, they have to be prepared to face these risks. Not saying that those wronged like this had it coming or anything like that, just that trust is always difficult and unless you truly trust someone you probably shouldn't film yourself having sex with them.

Dam seriously! I was going to preorder one today but apparently, they started selling it yesterday. WTF?!?! Don't say preorders start tomorrow, then let stores sell them the day before. *sigh* Oh well no launch console for me. Not too broken up about it since I am more interested in a RTX3090 but I just hate when crap like that happens.
