Please don't suck.

Please don't be full of stupid AI doing nothing else but pillaging your shit (which will be 50x more frustrating with the new city tiles).
...

That made me laugh, that was literally the first thing I thought when I heard they spread cities out across the hex map, because you KNOW the AI will abuse the shit out of this because it will shy away from attacking your fortified city. But it will raid the coastal areas and be a major pain in the butt.

That said, is that a bad thing? The AI in CIV was always abhorrently shit, if this gives it some staying power in non-cheat difficulty then I welcome the change. And it seems as if you could prevent raiding very easily with a general stack in the city, since movement range is always the hex range of the city. (So you can always defend/attack before raid triggers next-turn)

my friends and i basically steal games

Two factor authentication was not implemented to stop theft.


I was waiting to see who would get upset about that.






Not about being upset, butt they offer DRM free to benefit the person who paid for it, not so you can let your friends play for free.

Theft is still theft.

Is playing a bought CD in a car with 3 friends theft?
Is watching a bought DVD with friends at your place theft?
Is a all-you-can-eat-buffet theft?

Sharing something you bought is not theft. It may be against the TOS or morally unjustified... but who are we to judge? GoG could very easily prevent this if they really wanted.

You left the most important step out, namely how to go from knowing your name, to having access to say, gmail would lead to having access to a bank, which is usually protected by some better protection than only 1 password and would NEVER email you passwords, they would send them via postal service... and that would take a lot of effort to nab

That said you are 100% correct, ain't no such thing as a unimportant site.

Depending on the bank, the info in a typical Facebook account might be enough to at least make progress by conning a phone rep. Most people have their name and address and phone number, , etc. privately accessible on Facebook. Plenty to work with for social engineering purposes. Good catch though on physically mailing a password reset confirmation code rather than emailing the confirmation code though.

Yeah in the end the best password is no match to a bad call center employee being pwned. Especially "online" support...

Anyone? My 90 yo dad might disagree.

Not to mention that playing something well does not mean you are playing something well as a team. ^^ Team play isn't a skill you just have, it is trained, and that training, and coordination, is hard work...

The appeal of the little machine coming out next month though is that you don't need a computer or anything, just a TV with HDMI. It will have save states, too. So even some of the small fraction of the Nintendo audience that pirates ROMs will be interested.

That small fraction already has the full library though.. why bother with 29 select pieces, if you have ALL of them sitting around occupying merely a few hundred MB, not to mention often the translated/untranslated (and thus not-americanized) versions?

And if you have a streaming box, you can already stream them (NES/SNES/GameGear/Megadrive/N64/PS1/Gamecube) just fine..

"The home version of the game is also getting a re-release, along with 29 other Nintendo Entertainment System classics, via the plug-and-play NES Classic machine on November 11."

Meanwhile, intelligent gamers have been emulating the entirety of gaming history for the last 20 years.

This pretty much... though I doubt he heard of z-snes and fusion (SNES/NES and SegaMegaDrive emus );P

Not to mention they run some of them games better than the original consoles, since you have savestates....

That 8tb hdd uses a li-ion cell as charge buffer to even start with the palsy voltage that USB-C provides... so that is about as red a flag as it can get for an external ARCHIVE hdd. If that battery dies, so does your drive.

I've enjoyed this remake. Much better than what Telltale has been doing lately.

Not that that takes any skill, Telltale has overstretched itself, and the writing and design suffered heavily for it. Really sad ;/

If this takes inspiration from MOO2 it's gonna be yet another total failure... in the long string of failures. Aside from Distant Universe and Stellaris there weren't really any games in 4x that pushed the boundaries, or found niches within it. Everyone else seems to just clone MOO because they lack own unique ideas.

Let me get this straight, they are offering this credit on top of the original phone purchase refund right?

Well if a thing is pulled from the market the store where you bought it (or the telco) is responsible for refunding you and handling the return. So.. yeah? You get 100 credit on a new Samsung phone, not as free money.

Far as I understand you get 25$ credit on top of the refund.. but.. not as free money either. I have no idea what a "bill credit" is.. since you can't get a bill for something Samsung is forced to take off the market.

I just went and bought this, but there must be something wrong with my setup. I can only see the speedometer, but not the road or track or other vehicles. Is that expected?

That is totally expected for the greatest pay to win game of them all

Wow, so this explains why the recalls didn't fix it then.... all they did is put a black dot on the package and called it a day. Since how would they change anything when they don't change production?

So as the whole recall a scam?

Where'd you get that from? It wasn't in the article.

Samsung actually replaced the "faulty" batteries with ones from a different supplier. Problem is, the original supplier (a Samsung subsidiary) says the original batteries were to spec and fine, the issue was that the case was too tight and putting undue pressure on the batteries, causing the malfunction. While I haven't seen this verified, this would explain why changing the batteries makes no difference.

Eh, no. The case was wrongly designed. There is no way they did not notice this during QA heck, during design, heat expansion parameters of li-ion packs are very well known. There is even less a way they did not notice this after the first recall. The entire recall/replacement was a scam. A new battery with the same specs does not make the case bigger nor does it fit any better when it is hot.

Or, if what you say is true, they recalled and replaced without knowing what the actual issue was, and that is much worse in some ways ,)

But really, it's just bad design decisions causing infinite issues down the road. Had they made battery replaceable, they would have to give batteries a proper hard case and space within the case. Since you can't legally ship li-ion "bags"

I wonder if there is a recycling plan for those million tons of resources wasted in making the Note 7

LOLL, its the least of their concerns. The battery is at fault it seems from what I gathered. The pouch is glued to the phone. Old replaceable batteries were much easier to not only recover, but also recycle. The pouch types are too fragile and burst into flames at the slightest manipulation error.

Quote: "The CEO of a large recycling company recently told me dismantlers deal with battery fires about once a week. Just last year, a facility in Pennsylvania burned for two days. It was the facilities third major fire in four years. This isn’t a problem with irresponsible recyclers. It is a problem with irresponsible manufacturers. Chasing slimmer phones and higher profits, manufacturers keep gluing tiny incendiary devices into their devices."

All of this could have easily been avoided and/or easily fixed had the battery been replaceable. All smartphone makers using non-replaceable batteries are playing with fire, litteraly.

I am kinda glad my phone, a totally outdated model but still, has replaceable battery, which I did and in passing increased battery life by 70% since technology improved But that battery was in a solid case, you couldn't mishandle it even if you tried.

This is really insane then by the phone makers...
