Don't commit suicide, dude. There is always tomorrow for you to troll again.

Can we start a KS to get these idiotic trolls around here to fucking kill themselves already? They are just an absolute waste of space and resources. They are just garbage, and that's an insult to garbage.

I'm going back to PCs this cycle. I got a great deal of mileage out of the 360, but neither console has given me anything to be excited about.

Don't have to be paid to be a shill.

Of course who needs website shills when you can apparently get TV shows to write in Windows 8 ads into their shows like Arrow and that Elementary show, or Bones or Chuck for Subway. Or Smallville for shilling just about everything under the sun.

I don't see the point of either console this cycle. Nothing has really fundamentally changed to make either compelling

WinPE, ImageX, and the DISM command are all you need to create and deploy windows images

As far as I can tell, I can't make a donation through Kickstarter anymore, but is there any way to still contribute to the game?

People despise change and hate it without giving it time to grow on them.

While true, I don't think it's relevant in this case. Just look at Windows 7. It was a major UI change from XP, but was largely embraced as a step up from XP almost immediately. Most people liked the interface redesign, like Aero and the new taskbar. People like change when it's seen as an improvement.

I think you're missing one key aspect though. XP was really getting long in the tooth when Win7 came out, that and the failure of Vista meant most people figured that 7 really was an improvement this time around.

Win7 really isn't that old compared to that, so people are hesitant to upgrade so soon, that and the meme of "every other Windows release sucks" has set in.

I'm sure Win8 does have some decent improvements, but the ModernUI isn't winning any friends and it's following a known good OS that is still relatively new.

I used to think I was a libertarian. But it seemed to me every time a politician claimed to be a libertarian, what he really meant was "I want to get away with selling the public things that I know are bad"

There's a reason I'm an independent now. When I was young, I thought I was a republican, but eventually realized that was wrong. I thought I was a democrat, and later realized that was wrong. You just really can't sum up the political philosophies of 300 Million+ Americians with just 2 major parties. It's ridiculous.

The founders were right be wary of parties. These parties may have been founded with good intentions, but they always seem to inevitably get hijacked by the psychopaths.

if you're going take such a strong stance on browsing security, why tax...just simply restrict commerce completely unless you have a modern browser.

Or are they afraid they they would lose too much business. So which is it? promoting computer safety? or promoting profit?

makes me wonder how many people will just pay the tax

The thing is, I sorta agree with him, but for the wrong reasons.

I love my video on demand. But I want *my* video library on demand, not *their* library.

It's pretty simple really. I still like to buy DVDs and other physical media, but I want to be able to legally rip these DVDs to my home network storage, then have the ability to cache or stream movies from my library to my laptop or mobile device.

I want my own independent library, I don't want to depend on netflix, or amazon, or any company other than my ISP to be able to access the content I buy.

And again, we run into that familiar scenario of people who want to do things above board get roadblocked by DRM and other nonsense. But the people who are willing to flip the bird to the law DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS SHIT. And we're just talking about people who want to rip only the dvds they own. I'm not talking about going to some P2P site and downloading shit you don't own.

Yeah, I like renting stuff from Netflix and watching some movies on Instant Watch, but I'd rather buy a physical dvd, rip it to my private library and then be able to watch it anywhere

not that he needs anyone to defend himself.

But you doth protest too much about Ms. Webb. You frame the argument as if he personally attacked Ms. Webb and that's not really what he's saying. Ms. Webb may be the exception, but she's not the general rule.

It's not just gaming media that does this, it's mainstream media that does this too or have you failed to notice the increasing amount of attractive women in news media who, generally speaking, don't know squat, but look good on camera.

I love Firefly...but stop trying to bring it back. It would never live up to fan expectations and it would cheapen the awesomeness of what was a great show.

apparently Fillion got fat or something too...no thanks.

I tend to be of the opinion that SWTOR is a fun game, it was just rushed out WAY too early. Everything in 1.2 should have been in release but the suits forced it out the door and it shows.

So if you're patient and can see long term, the game is worth it and a blast, but if you're impatient or just looking for your next fix, then you're just not going to stick with it.

And sadly, most people fall into the latter category.

I have no problem with this as I don't have a monthly cap, but as long as there are people with monthly caps there is going to be a backlash.

I don't see myself running out and getting the next Xbox right away anyway, but I'm a 30-something and my gaming time is ever decreasing and I still have a ton of games in my backlog for the 360.

I just want them to improve the xbox live service, even with my fat pipe, the download speeds are horrible and I just can't justify paying for gold anymore. The service needs to be free as they make a ton of money off DLC anyway I'm sure. especially if they want to compete with Steam.

But I want CONVERGENCE damnit! I'm sick of some of my games being on one platform, some of my games on another platform. If everything is going to be a service then there shouldn't be any reason I can't plug said service into my PC and play from there instead of a console or vice versa. But as someone else said, it's all about control, and you don't have control if you let people play their games anywhere or anyHOW they want to play it.

next evolution of the Legacy system?????

They haven't had a FIRST evolution yet, so I call BS on that.

Of course a brand new MMO still has bugs in it, duh, but yeah, It's still fun and I'm still playing it.

Yeah there are issues, every game has issues. It all just comes down to personal taste/preference. Or in other words, "Haters gotta hate" This notion that a game has failed if it goes to F2P is pretty silly. If the game failed, people wouldn't be playing it. F2P is merely a different business model.

Moore's Law was never a law in the first place.

It should have been called "Moore's very accurate speculation that has held up for a very long time" But that just isn't catchy now is it.

you fail to acknowledge that crafting is not completely random. Or else blues wouldn't be so easy to craft and purples are so disproportionately harder..or broken.

and keep it up with the ad homs

I don't think your wanting to craft so much (and needing to feed that habit by farming mats and/or making enough money to pay for missions) means the game was designed for powerleveling... Crafting is completely optional, and none of the other professions are as time- and resource-consuming as armormech, so that's all on you.

Powerleveling is also optional.

I also like how you made a drug addict analogy in describing my playstyle .

see how some play styles are apparently more equal than others?
