I'm kind of curious about the, "it's inappropriate to throw things, but slapping someone is criminal." What/how was she throwing things at him? I could easily kill or maim someone for life depending on how/what I threw at them. Was she throwing pillows or pairs of socks at him or baseball trophies and paperweights?

No one was ever buying google smart speakers to begin with. The reason they "sold" so many was they were being included in deals with other electronics or given away for free.

Hmm looks like a knockoff Skyrim. Haven't I fought enough giants and dragons in snowy tundras?

Never understood the theory the Constitution doesn't apply at the border. Never made any sense at all.

I understand what he's trying to say, that the stakes are completely different, but that just means such a person needs to be more careful to follow the rules, not less careful.

Exactly. And what garnered them so many fans? People who suck at games usually don't have tons of followers. So was this guy using hacks to "get gud" at the game and that's how he got his followers? So he's undeserving of the money and fame he has and should lose it. Permanent ban sounds right to me.

NDAs exist for a reason...

If they let this guy off with a slap in the wrist, they'll have people leaking stuff left and right.

Republicans: "How dare you censor someone for supporting democracy? Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to get back to leaving our elections open to foreign tampering, attacking our own intelligence agencies, and trampling on the Constitution in our absolutely insane quest to protect an unqualified con man, who seems to be compromised by about a half dozen nations, from warranted impeachment proceedings, because we don't want him impeached before we can fill the judiciary with unqualified partisan judges who are barely old enough to vote."

Heh, corporations are finding out sometimes having eggs in baskets around the planet can be a difficult situation. China doesn't have anything like free speech, and they are increasingly buying up stakes in US companies. So when a US employee/citizen makes a comment China doesn't like, the US company feels obliged to squash that speech, which is their right. However, they will find they have to deal with the consequences of their actions.

For decades, it's increasingly been all about the "shareholders", and only shareholders. But the customers and employees should have rights and a voice too, and while the shareholders might invest money, they don't generate the profits. In the end, that's why the population wields the most power.

I don't think I've ever seen a game that is so resistant to going on sale, especially with a 50% rating. D:OS and D:OS 2 resisted sales (or only gave minor discounts) for a LONG time, but those games were smash hits with great ratings.

Trump's tariffs are hurting more American companies than anything. Laying off people, closing factories. The reason many of them are looking to move overseas is due to the crushing Trump Taxes...I mean tariffs. It would be one thing if he had any kind of master plan or ultimate goal, but he has no idea what he is doing, other than "punish China". He doesn't even understand basic trade terms. They have to be explained to him during any trade meetings. He has no idea what he is doing and no endgame. He should have listened to experts, and failing that, the GOP should have blocked his tariffs, as he has no power to even implement them except in cases of national security, and his tariffs have nothing to do with national security.

Once he's removed from office, Congress really needs to crack down on the powers the President can exercise. One moron shouldn't be able to tank the world economy because he can't comprehend a trade deficit isn't necessarily bad.

$50 is the cheapest streaming plan for AT&T? Wow, I'm paying $16 a month for Philo. These big corporations just don't seem to get the point.

I think the GA election should be investigated. So the guy in charge of the election was also the guy running for Governor, and he kicked thousands of voters off the rolls, while also closing down voting precincts that would vote for his opponent, and precincts that would have voted for his opponent also had machine malfunctions and a limited number of machines, resulting in hours-long lines *even though* poll workers said there were machines available in storage that they weren't allowed to bring out.

King's Bounty is my jam. I don't mean like "I kind of like it", but more like "the only series I have played through like 3-5x for every game, as every class."

I'll believe any developer over G2A. G2A is the Donald Trump of key retailers. Nothing they say ever ads up.

So gaming on one of those is about equal to turning your stovetop on low and leaving it on. As I've gotten older, I care less about 3 more FPS, and I care more about noise and heat.

"Look, I've summoned all you here today - the social media corporations, the MPAA, RIAA, cell phone companies, DC and Marvel Comics, the video game manufacturers, because we MUST do something to address this rabid gun violence problem!" "Um...where are the NRA and gun manufacturers?" "What do they have to do with gun violence? Get out of here, you're fired!" "But...I don't work for you."

Pretty sure the Executive can't just draft an EO giving one of its department sweeping new powers over massive industries. That needs to go through Congress.

I've sometimes worried about the security of games on Steam, with so many Chinese and Russian games appearing, and apparently no oversight. I recall several smaller games from foreign developers where people say their security software is flagging it, but the developer merely says it's a false alarm.
