Hey I love me some Pc Master race stuff like the next, but the PC elitism in terms of "if only a pc version". Seesh. Bioware do this, do whatever the fuck you want to do, if people like it they'll buy it if they don't they'll buy something else. Make it for whatever platforms you want, jeeze. You own me nothing.

Given how the "tactical" implementation was for Dragon Age Inquisition due to consolitis, I will take PC only any time and bitch as loud as I want about it. Got plenty of historical precedent to justify those concerns too

While I am in no way, shape or form on the government's side in this story, there is one thing that puzzles me:

Is it POSSIBLE to decrypt this iPhone, or not? Apple kept saying that it was impossible to do, so the government demands a back door which Apple rightfully refuses to do. However, there seem to be hints that writing a custom firmware for the phone will actually still allow it to be decrypted. If so, isn't that already a back door?

As Naga mentioned its impossible. What the Feds want is for Apple to essentially write a backdoor into iOS then trick the phone into an upgrade that would essentially remove the checks.

The argument that there is useful intel on the phone is compelling given the circumstances but does it trump privacy for all? Should Apple and everyone else just ignore historical precedent in the form of government abuse with access to this sort of information?

I say no.

News Comments > Fallout 4 DLC Plans; Season Pass Price Jump

OK, that's a phrase I never want to hear associated with Fallout. Or Elder Scrolls.

The combat in those games was jank by comparison, take off your nostalgia goggles. FO4 makes significant improvements in those areas while still retaining all of the relevant RPG bits.

An actual complaint is the mediocre implementation for PC choices. The voiced dialogue is probably to blame.

This is just to get business off impulse customers, I lost count at the number of people yesterday who said they were getting it before it went up in price. The rest of us will pick it up down the road when its cheap and complete.

Good, the AC games were really tired and formulaic. Black Flag was the last game I played and I don't plan on buying future ones until the games are dramatically re-imagined. Been there, done that.

I really hope this game will also be available on Steam and not just exclusively on the crappy Windows Store...

Hah I don't want to even load the Windows Store to find it. Place is a fucking cesspool, unbelievable that a multi-billion dollar company let it get so bad.

Seeing Gravity in 3D was pretty damned cool. Same with Interstellar. I can't say I cared for it much outside of the theater though. My Panny plasma has it and I don't think we've used it once.

Want to see Kyle Bosman land on his feet. He had a weekly op ed I've consistently watched for the past two years, much more thoughtful and introspective than anything else.

Agreed, he has real talent. I hope he doesn't end up at IGN or something.

Am I seeing defense of drunk driving on Blue's?

Being drunk is a right apparently and everyone should drive you home, fluff your pillow and perhaps pay you a salary too. If they don't do those things then its ok to drive drunk and potentially kill people.

Absolutely idiotic.

Java, one emergency patch after another. Remember when homeland security said, disable Java if you don't need it.

Like anything else these days including your OS. The problem with Java is not the updates, its the people who don't apply them.

Kind of a weird Super Bowl, very much a defensive grind out. Denver's D was ferocious, Ware and Miller were a force. Manning looked strong on the opening drive then sputtered out but he still did enough to get them into FG position consistently and hopefully ends his career on this high note. Miller deserves a major salary bonus for essentially creating both of their scoring opportunities. The Bronco's running game needs some updates though.

Panthers just made so many damned mistakes and unnecessary penalties, absolutely zero discipline. Newton got into a rut and gave his critics more ammo after a season of hot dogging and boasts. Unlike Russell Peters last year he didn't seem to own it and went into a bit of a daze. Hopefully he reflects on this and learns some humility.

You're a bunch of crusty ole' bastards. Give them some credit, they're trying.

They're just reversing a shitty decision they shouldn't have made in the first place, I'm not sure that qualifies as trying.

Given the optimization problems they had with the Windows version I'm guessing they just didn't want a repeat with Mac OS X and Linux where the driver situation is much worse. Then they would be back to square one and recalling a game again.

I find it interesting that you have the exact opposite perspective. theyarecoming doesn't want ANYTHING negative spoken about Star Citizen because he's financially backing it and fears project collapse. You don't want to hear ANYTHING about it period because you hate it. "You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't" about sums it up. The long and short is this. Where and when I feel it is appropriate I will continue to use Star Citizen and Chris Roberts for the topic at hand. You're more than welcome to skip my comments if the mere mention of Star Citizen makes you throw up a little.

I don't hate it, you're projecting. I'm just tired of the endless topics, baiting like in this thread and arguments surrounding it. There's really no need or purpose to dragging it into other threads, especially when there are active ones in the side bar already. But since you're determined no problem, I will start running it up the flag pole in the future if I see it instead. Same goes for him.

News Comments > Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder
12. Re: Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder Feb 4, 2016, 11:38 Verno
 
Yeah this season is actually pretty good, in fact some of the people who commented here haven't been on b.net in awhile so I take what I read with a grain of salt. The game has a much better meta than S3 and its endgame is much more fleshed out than D2 ever was. The cube has worked out really well in addressing most of the Jay Wilson era design flaws. There are some fundamental aspects of the game that suck, particularly the poor map randomization but new lead can't do much about that at this stage.
