News Comments > Blizzard Dropping Battle.net Name

Perhaps Activision wants to license Battle.net as a Networking engine within their network of companies, or beyond (e.g. Frostbite). It would make sense to call it "Blizzard tech" as the name implies a platform built on Blizzard's reputation, whereas Battle.net sounds more like a service.

This makes a lot of sense and seems to be the most likely case.

I love that it's also Jonathan Coulton doing the "Previously On" songs on Braindead. Check it out if you haven't already

As a former Orc, and member of the Horde, I find this offensive! #OrcLivesMatter

I wasn't really paying attention to the headline and read it as Orcs Must Diet which might be appropriate in certain cases, however it's also important to enjoy the finer things in life.

This seems incredibly reasonable and a great idea. I'm more about Battlefield than CoD but even I am tempted by this.

- Battlefield 4 (168 hours - yes you can play the SP campaign too)

Is this a typo? No wonder it's so effective for people to use burner origin accounts so they can run around BF4 with their cheats enabled at no financial risk to themselves.

I was on the train once and saw a bunch of interesting looking houses off the side of the line. Wanted to look at the design a bit better using streetview and it turned out just one of the houses had been blurred out. So I saved it as a point on google maps to actually visit later out of curiousity.

A few months later I did end up walking nearby and there was nothing different about that one house compared to the others. Took a picture anyway. Barbara Sreisand eat your heart out.

If you're going to say it's incorrect, could you elaborate on why exactly????


Fair point. For a start, because it's the localhost address that means for the headline to be accurate the "seed" would have had to have been coming from the exact same machine used to compile the list. Highly unlikely. Of course, it's possible that the machine was briefly acting as part of a torrent swarm in order to get peer IP's, but that would very unlikely to be long enough to provide a full seed and in either case this would be an authorised act on the part of the agency hired to perform this locate-and-takedown function for the studio.

Also given the suffix to the localhost url, others have noted some some P2P systems run via a local proxy meaning that this full URL including the #/fr/ bit is a call to that proxy which then connects to peers from there. It could either have been left on the list by accident, or to avoid people googling this exact URL to locate more information connected with piracy and how to use these utilities. Either way, not a "pirated copy...seeded from its own servers".

So yeah, stupid clickbait headline, highly unlikely to be accurate. I think some of the things these companies do is disgusting and self-serving to a stupid extent, but I'd rather save the collective indignation for stuff that's actually true.

Some pretty poor reporting from the guardian there. Sadly when it comes to tech, sometimes the temptation to reach the clickbait headline rather than get someone more knowledgeable to fact-check wins out.

Hope you're not planning on stopping anytime soon! I simply don't know of any other site that presents all this info in one place so well.

Plus, yknow, oldskool humour.

Booya.

I think this was the logical way to go in terms of the story/scenario development. Nothing is going to capture the vibe I get from the present-day origin scenario of having to fight a threat from a realistic (rather than sci-fi) foundation. I do see them trying to recapture some of that, in that the general population will see Advent as saviours and not even realise there is a threat there.

I do think this has all the potential to be an amazing game in its own right. I hope they can capture the atmos though.

All but confirmed now that Advent is in the XCom universe, not Bioshock. An update to the site gave an anagram of the Vigilo Confido motto, in addition to all the other supporting evidence.

Reddit are running with this being something in the XCom universe

Much as I'd love to believe this, I'm not sure it's the case. Also mention of a new Bioshock game going around.

The youtube app for android can cache videos for offline play, does the IOS app not do that?

Just updated it and had a look, appears they have chosen not to allow that on the iOS version. Unless it's buried pretty deep within the interface, but probably not.

Welp, this breaks my iOS app that could cache youtube videos for viewing offline. Was really handy on long-term travel where I didn't have regular high-speed wifi or access to a computer to do it manually.

I don't think there's any other apps like that now out there, Google have gotten pretty hot at catching and killing them quickly. RIP.

I... don't know if I want to buy this but if I watch this trailer I
probably won't want to but if I don't then I will?

Though this did work for the Stanley Parable. Amazing game.
