And I'd like to play Widowmaker without getting banned for it. I can only practice in the training area for so long before venturing into wilds of quick play.

Ohh that's cute. She says that like somehow they're unaware of it. They're the parties responsible for it. You vote for the parties of the elites/big biz and this is what you get. It only proves just how stupid your average Canadian is because unlike the US there are actually viable choices here besides the Libs and Cons. They're simply too dumb to choose them.

Okay, well, please educate me. There's the New Democratic Party which had the very charismatic Mulclair not win the last election, so he's more or less gone now. There's the Block Quebecois, which is great for Quebec, not so great for everything that's not Quebec, not really represented outside of Quebec, and I'm pretty sure I didn't see them on the ballot. There was the Reform party, who were great but then they rolled into the Progressive Conservatives over a decade ago, so that's that.

So what's left? The Onion of our political system, The Rhinoceros Party? They did want to nationalize Tim Hortons.. but I think they received less than 1% of the popular vote in the last election, rivaling Lord Buckethead. Neat logo though.

Pray tell though, what other options do we have, political-wise?

Kind of chafing due to the lack of a character creator. Hopefully reviews and streams will cure me of that.

Would be hard to gain 700 million more users to reach their billion target at $120 a pop.

Maybe, just maybe, ports to other platforms shouldn't be mailed out to other companies so they can run it through a quick and dirty emulation wrapper and hope for the best.

Take it in house and program it for the target platform like you mean it.

Wow, and I have to wipe my hard drive to get out of 8.0. (I did try the store link and two methods of offline installation.. none worked) Guess I'll skip this one.

Yeah, I don't buy it. They seem genuinely shocked that people were offended by their restrictions and I don't have any faith in people don't understand why they were wrong, only that they were.

Heck, before this, they fired someone who delivered the exact same message they spouted a month later. Is someone getting canned over this, too?

Gun companies werent sued after certain shootings so i dont see how google would be sued from misuse either.

Technology companies get sued for a lot of things gun companies don't.

Aren't these the same people who threatened to ban people for reproducing bugs during their beta test? Did they ever actually do that or was it just FUD?

Wow. This smells like it's because a pair of monks stunlocked Diablo to death and someone got a little sore about it.

I'm a little astonished by how many knee-jerk development decisions Blizzard is making with this title post-launch.

For some reason, I was thinking the first prank call to be in 1885 from a one 'Clint Eastwood.' To whom, I don't know. =/

However, most folks appear to agree that the game as a whole is exceptional, with more than 75 critics giving it a perfect review score and a review average in the mid-90s.
And yet the average user score is a whopping 4.8 out of 100. Most folks seem to be juuuuuuuust a little upset.

But Day 1 DLC for $10 and now possible New Ending, or whatever it is they have in mind DLC for another $10? Thanks, but no thanks.

I still can't specify what directory I want my Origin installed games to install in. Anything but the default causes it to complain loudly and not install anything. Editing config files or making symlinks don't work.

And in ten days, this issue is around six months old.

Yay.

They are plugging away at it consistently though. An update hits Steam nearly every week.
