Technopagan daughter starting a stink against Elon Musk over a farting unicorn that her daddy stole* from the internet, cries technopagan tears for being blocked. hahahaaaa Best story of the day.

Also learned new word, technopagan, and because I am an prickly "old" white dude it's of course meant as an insult.

Can't imagine the shitstorm the poor dad now receives though, I mean if he really sues he's gonna have to proof first creation of that thing, and that's gonna be a laugh, and 4chan might even have a word to say here.

*MLP fan art has this meme for as long as I can think. Originally came from Japan no?

That IP location thing from the first link tracking login history.. is complete and utter bullshit, aka, 100% wrong in every instance for me Doesn't even get the city right once. 70% of the logins are not even in the same state as I am, and that's all my logins from the same PC. That's amazingly bad

Germany fails to advance out of the group stage in the World Cup. Wow. Finishing last in the group no less.

Wow! That's bad. To think in 2014, they destroyed the competition and went on to win the cup.

That's what happens when you got a trainer who dumps the ENTIRE team that won the Confed Cup (a year prior!) for overpaid and overrated club players who then go on to lose all the test games before the entire event. We lost deservedly, South Korea was amazing. No goal in 90 minutes is just crazy bad, back in 2014 we dominated, today others will. Fair is fair and personally I am now rooting for Argentina

Haven't really played fallout before (single player games bore the f out of me these days), but co-op survival with PVP + nukes? I'm down.

So you are also down with the inevitable grief fest this is going to be? I couldn't sell this game to any of my coop friends after the presentation. They all tuned out when they heard battle royale.

In before anti-DRM told you so squad and hellfire. I think this sucks too, but I'm not abundant enough in excess energy to rant about it on the Blue's News forum.

This is something that drives me crazy, why do these companies continue to leave DRM like this in older games that no longer require the game to be protected from piracy when a game has already been cracked to begin with. This is stupidity at its finest with developers.

Even better, the company who made this DRM refused to remove it and now does real estate "financing"

The amount of times I honsit to God tipped someone because of tip worthy service can be counted on one hand. The rest of the time they just did their job.
Really? You eat at lousy restaurants. How often do you eat out?
Why is just doing their job bad? Why does everyone think every server needs to suck their cock?

Personally I think tipping is fucking stupid and needs to fucking die in a fire. Pay people a regular fucking wage.

I had a pizza delivery person get all pissy I left no tip. I was like "I have to pay extra for you to do your fucking job? And you didnt even fucking do that because I had to come down here to get my food you entitled prick?" Lived in an apartment at the time. EVERY other delivery place came up. There is no lock or code on the building door.

And that's why I loved my vacation in Japan. Local guide brought me to an themed cafe (no not gothic lolis) they made food cut and prepared so it looked cute and just.. awesome per bowl, themed per bowl that is. No tips but great service and servers who were curious about me being a very noticeable German tourist eating Japanese food.

To be honest, I would have loved giving them a tip which would be a FIRST for me. Only one time in my life have I actually gotten up in a restaurant beelined to the cook and given him 20 just like that, as thank you. It was the *best* steak I ever ate and sadly it remained the best steak I ever ate.... Cooks don't get tips but have just as shitty wages. It's super unfair.

In Germany tipping is sadly mandatory. And if you knew how the servers are given tables not tipping would be an economic death sentence to them. I don't wanna that kind of BS responsibility when I am out eating.

Sigh, it actually makes me sad that Germany has this practice.

Event Pass: Sanhok

Is this a case of charging people for new content to a game that was never finished in the first place, or are they selling people early access to their new area in the game before the game is finished? Can't tell which level of horsecockery this is..

NOTE: THIS DLC IS NOT NEEDED TO PLAY SANHOK IN PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS. MAPS ARE ADDED AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO PLAYERS.

That article about the kiosks points out how bad management is at these chain restaurants. If you did not like the food or something other than the service from the server, you still nail the server with a bad rating.
Right, where's the logic in that.

It's called CEO logic, set an impossible/ridiculous goal, don't ask questions when the goal is met, collect your massive bonus.

The joke is even STEAM and Youtube figured this out.. binary ratings or nothing. Anything else is nearly always shit and scummy.

LoL @ Atari. What a bunch of maroons.

In that capacity, we would like to formally apologize to both Atari and Michael Arzt for digging out a recording of the interview and for the following article in which we highlight that Atari is so full of crap that it should be designated a hazardous waste zone.

Burns so hot that even Atari ran away screaming

Could WB really be dumb enough to steal copyrighted source code it doesn't have a license for from a company with far more reach and influence, and far better lawyers?

Apparently yes, it could! Just goes to show, even the big corps do illegal things and think they can get away with em

If you already own the base game you still may want to do this. It will upgrade you to the Deluxe version once you put in the Steam key.

Also, Dishonored 2 was $13.50 last week, and is $19.99 now. Really thought it'd go $9.99.

Somehow Far Cry Primal is still $20. Ubisoft is ludicrous.

Additionally, Ubisoft QC and post-sales support is rubbish. I spent 12 hours over 3 nights this week trying to get The Division to run on my main gaming system - it used to be fine but after the latest update now runs as a process in the background, not an App in the foreground. As a measure of my frustration, I have sent the orcs over to the Ubi office with a trebuchet and some exploding hobbit ammo (don't ask, involves beans and habaneros).

On the brighter side, I picked up Ni No Kuni II and FFXV for about half price, so in my eyes it's a net win.

I have the same problem with The Crew (on top The Division, just checked) ;/ It doesn't run at all as a task, its hung in an infinite loop.

I think it would be better if Disney didn't get Alien nor Predator. 2 franchises they will UTTERLY fuck up. And the only 2 Fox franchises I give 2 ct about. I can already see it, Alien the musical. Alien kid friendly movies, predator plush toys. That's Disney in a nutshell. They ruined Star Wars and now they will ruin Alien and Predator.

Because they weren't... already... ruined? I mean, when was the last time a GOOD Alien movie came out? I'm pretty sure it was 1986.

And again, Comcast wouldn't do any better with it.


Disney won't do anything with it, no game licenses and no mature movies. Because Disney does not do mature IP for adults. And yes, I am not even counting Star Wars as a mature story anymore. That has always been extremely family friendly but the last Disney movies put it straight into kids friendly Cartoon Network range.

Alien Isolation would never have happened if Disney had owned the IP.

And I think a franchise can be ruined by adding onto it just as much as by not adding on to it. Disney will fuck Aliens up, there is not even doubt in that, either by willfully letting it die (meaning no game licenses) or by making it family friendly. Because if it don't sell their idiotic theme parks it doesn't get boosted by Disney money.

And lastly, I think ethically Disney is one of the *worst* companies that exist.

Either way, I would be happy with no Alien sequels. But that doesn't mean I don't want an Alien RPG.

And millions of movie fans look for the nearest cliff.

Why? Do you think Comcast would do a better job of handling Fox's movie properties? Or that Disney wouldn't be better than Fox?

I have no particular love of Disney, but it's really not hard to see how they would handle the X-men and Fantastic Four SUBSTANTIALLY better than the barrels of shit that Fox has been turning those properties into. (To be fair, most of the X-men movies were pretty good, it was just the third one in each series that was terrible.)
