I don't really have a problem with streaming subscriptions as long as they offer a massive amount of content. Netflix, Hulu and Amazon have more content than I can possibly watch. However, I'm not going to pay $8.99 or $9.99 for CBS online or other channels that have just a few shows and a backlog of old shows. It's like how Youtube thinks people are going to pay $5 to subscribe to one Youtube channel. So you give me 1/1000 the content of Netflix, but expect me to pay the same price? No, I'd pay $1 a month for something like CBS online or something like that.

This is actually good news. Suicide Squad is a perfect fit for his talents.

They shouldn't even have the authority to search US citizens at the border, much less go through their laptops, phones, or put tracking devices on their cars.

I'll probably pick this up when it's on sale, but I hope it's not as nerve-wracking as Darkest Dungeon.

The only way I could see FB being responsible is if they presented the job in a light that made it seem less toxic than it was. Of course you are going to have to read bad things and see bad images as an internet moderator. It's like a zoo landscaper saying, "NO one said I'd have to work around animals!"

Good luck with "not reasonably foreseeable". It sounds like they had all their eggs in one basket, and when that last funding company pulled out, their company collapsed. They should have had more funding and emergency strategies in place.

Amazing. So when it comes to platforms used for free speech, NOW Republicans become concerned about monopolies, but if cable companies, telecolms, ISPs and banks all buy each other up, it's fine.

Why the hell are they concerned with Steam, when you can just type porn in google and you immediately get hardcore porn.

Because TRIGGERED! Duh! Laugh

It's because the conservative Bible-thumpers still think only children play video games, when the average gamer's age is closer to 40 than not.

@Beamer and HoSpanky,

I know I'll be attacked like a sheep among a pack of wild wolves but...what the hell...

The arguments, "there's much worse" and "there's way more" aren't really the best ways to justify making porn accessible via Steam are they?

The way I look at it, Gabe Newell is already a billionaire. How much more money does he need? You want to get into the porn business now also?

I guess Steam is no longer just a PC gaming service. If it's expanding beyond that into a porn service it's a little sad to me. If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well. Do we really need another porn service on the Internet? Like there aren't enough already.

I know Steam isn't exclusively an environment for children but porn has a negative stigma attached to it, period. I don't want it bleeding into every area of my life just because it's "okay" for adults. Kids can lie on the Internet easier than they can in real life. You need to present a valid id to purchase cigarettes and alcohol. So, that argument is pretty weak also. It basically justifies Steam's efforts to prevent access to porn for minors by enforcing age verification which we all know is a complete joke on the Internet.

I think it's just a bit deeper than "porn" or "child safe". The Witcher 3 is an "adult" game that is not porn, yet it deals with a lot of adult issues such as death, sex, drugs, violence, etc. Games like the Witcher and Cyberpunk (and others) could be made more immersive if you were allowed to make the same choices and experience the same things adults in real life can experience.

35 million minors? Yet there are over 125 million Steam users, which means the majority of them are adults. Why must adults have their content limited and restricted because of the minority?

Just make each account limited by age, not filtered results. Sure, they can lie about their age, but that's on them. They can do the same on any site.

As everyone knows more thermal paste means more cooling, so I just dipped my entire computer in it. It now runs at ambient temps, and is completely silent...

Up next, filling your entire house with thermal paste!

Funny how Republicans are all about states' rights until it affects how their corporate sponsors can ream voters and profit off of them.

Hmm, I'm not sure a 40-50% performance increase is "amazing" when comparing $$$ video cards from 2018 to cards from 2016.

The two things I remember about Daggerfall:
1. I hit some kind of bug where a guy wanted me to bring him something, and when I got it, he wouldn't recognize I had it, and I couldn't progress, after getting halfway through the game.
2. I wandered aimlessly for hours and hours because I found the maps really hard to read.

I've tried to finish this game like 3 times. Each time I just lose interest. It feels like an MMO where I'm the only person playing (yes, I know it was supposed to be an MMO at one point).

At one point I did some of the DLC, then when I went back to the main game, I was so overleveled, I was bored to death.

All they had to do was make a movie about a portal to Hell opening on Mars, then throw in constant action, horror and isolation. Instead, they made a generic zombie movie that had almost nothing in common with Doom.

"Trump claims _______ without evidence" sums up all that Trump is. His only hope is if he can whip up his gullible followers into a frenzy and they make enough noise that Congress and the DoJ decides they are too afraid to remove Trump from power.

So if Call of Duty replaced bullets with nerf darts and people were merely eliminated instead of killed, he'd have no problem with it.

Funny thing about these debunked studies and research though...politicians love to keep using them for years after, and conveniently leave out the fact the study was flawed, ripped apart during peer review or retracted.
