Even with its own content, I still want a wide library of videos to choose from. I get the whole 'Rights' thing where they probably only have access to content for so long.

So far I would still choose a service that has zero exclusives, but series's I enjoy and more movies I enjoy, then one service with a exclusive show with a bad selection of other titles.

I doubt the people that tend to watch people play games actually buy games anyway. These people just want to sit and have entertainment streamed into their face holes rather than get off their ass and experience things for themselves.

Also, reading some of the comments to that article makes me sick.

Wow angry much? I also do watch LP's plenty, so I satisfy my "face hole" as you so elegantly put it. I watch it for commentary and not just a silent LP. Also silent LP'ers are some of the worst viewed video's.

People like me tun into my LP channels to have the commentary and thoughts on a game. And who says somebody did not already buy it and want to watch somebody else playing it and hear there thoughts? I've done that a couple times.

Wow, you not only looked at the video, but even read about it? Impressive. With this amount of research Baldur`s Gate can also look like a "Diablo type game" I suppose.

In reality Soldak`s games are highly original and unlike anything out there (maybe Arcen has similar design philosophies)

lol are you the Dev' or the dev's family? Sorry I guess I get to look at things more objectively then you allow yourself. The work looks derivative to be frank. And yeah gameplay footage as shown in the trailer video of a games store page is actually about the best way to see if one will like a game or not. My research is complete, and I will not.

It looks like a wanna be Diablo type game with a zombie survival theme tossed on top to try to bring in viewers or complainer's. Not much different then Diablo actually, even story wise. Diablo is set in the same type of "surrounded by all things evil" plots.

I mean watch the gameplay video itself, its so nothing to do with Zombies its kinda laughable they would name it this. I'm not impressed at all, and I even looked at the video and screens + reading about it.

In a country where people die at there PC's playing games... We might see this as Government knee-jerking reaction that would make the US look like the good guys(which is harder to do now then ever).

As he said below its enough of a national problem that it requires rules like this. Wait until fingerprint tech is required to scan people for buying beer in the US.

Its a real legit concern. If the US get's apple to crack the phone the easy way. Whats to stop another government? And how far will the government go? from Russia cracking down on opposition parties to South African and Russia now, hunting gays where ever they hide?

Its crazy, but unlocking one door unlocks it for the rest and the rest have very different forms of "government threats" then just terrorism.

"Players want free content without realising the impact
of their actions on the entire games industry."

Ad-blockers are effectively condoms of the internet era. When your wandering the net keep it on. When you have a trusted site, you might take it off, but its still super important to consider leaving it on.

similarities were "unequivocal".

I dunno, typing Lacey Jonas into the GTA wiki shows she is just a generalization of crappy kids raised on being famous for not much. If Lindsay takes that as a punch to her pride maybe she should act differently?

I like how he talks like its revolutionary or something. That kind of player count has been around on PC for ages, from mmo's to shooters.

According to Ybarra, we aren't even close to how high he'd like party numbers to reach. "It was 8 six months ago, then we went to 12, now weíre at 16," he says. "Iíd love to get that to 64 because thatíll get Battlefield and games like that which do 64 vs. 64Öhave at it! Now, I donít want to be in a party of 64, but thatís a different problem! [Laughs]"

For shooters of course, its a bit old but there was
Each Joint Operations server at Novaworld has the potential to hold up to 150 players
-taken from the wiki for it.

I dunno sitting, in games where 8 vs 8 was the height of amazing, I guess even knowing that TF2 can do 16vs16 must have been mind blowing. On PC we have been doing this multiplayer thing for a long time, and were more then capable of playing with large teams. IE: EVE online 400+member space fleets in coms. It'll work.

Its all about a little word called precedent.

meaning: an earlier event or action that is regarded as an example or guide to be considered in subsequent similar circumstances.

They get this one unlocked in this way for them, they will do it again and again for big and small events.

EULA's are exactly that however. you are committing yourself to not have total rights and or freedom with a product.

Even the cellphone I have here has limitations I agreed too.

And they love the Arbitration idea. One of the most bullying style of legal systems useable in the US legal system.

That sound design is amazing so far. Graphics could use some more work/polish. Otherwise, looking very sweet so far.

As many white collar criminals have shown, you can't rouse a government agency out of bed for less than a few hundred million.

Except for the IRS, those fuckers will hunt you down over a dime.

Even having left the US I'm still afraid of the IRS, so this is real life truth.

This games' kickstarter still going is scary.

That was the best part of not working overnights anymore was dealing with the long and tiring daylight savings days. Working overnight was screwy with that, sometimes they forced you to work an hour for free. some times they let you go home early. I truly hate it.

But my first year without daylight savings affecting my work, its way better.

A majority is still red. Including the famed Bible belt, which is hardcore red. That's about as Midwest as you can get. Is there exceptions? sure. But that giant section of red running down the middle cannot be escaped.

I dunno I deal with some annoying aspects of mass transit here in Germany already. Like rush hour trains getting only 2 passenger cars, and you cannot even fit people on it, it even has more stops.

And wait 20mins later and a 4 passenger car train arrives and its under a quarter full. And its been like that for longer then I've been alive and it never changes. You would think, ohh more people? need more cars? nope.

Why try to run simulations and crap to see when you need more trains or bus routes? Just actually have the planners ride them for an average week back and fourth. Stuff would change real quick then I'm sure.
