    John Carmack is Suing Zenimax for $22.5 Million

    Or maybe the drive was just new and had 93% zeroed out space. It's a more likely call than *fucking Carmack* not knowing how to erase a drive offhand, given his literal decades of experience. Zenimax apparently got nothing when they have to resort to this much irrelevant bullshit. The only...

    John Carmack is Suing Zenimax for $22.5 Million

    That's the most absurd part of the Zenimax claim. John Carmack knows how to wipe a hard drive without having to search for instructions. That claim makes it clear that Zenimax is just grasping at straws.

    Longtime Valve Employee Erik Wolpaw Leaves Company

    Turn the picture by 90 degrees. His glasses look like a 3. Half-Life 3 confirmed.

    Pokemon Go Update Removed Sightings and Spawns When Traveling at Higher Speeds

    Heya. Your tone heavily implied it applies to everyone, at least from the perspective of me, another cripple who could only - previously - play this game for any extended period of time by playing it on the bus. Now this may not be what you meant to do, in which case I heartily recommend you...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    I'm under no obligation to relate to your viewpoint, nor to respect it. You have no power to dictate my behavior. There seems to be a bit of a running theme going on in here. You've considered the opinions and actions of others; but you only consider them in the context of how yourself, with...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    I'm afraid you're just plain wrong. He's not authorized to make unilateral decisions without the council. This includes requests to Niantic. And he's a ranting about problems that do not exist because he's not familiar with the issue at hand. And he's also complaining about the behavior of...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    That's a king you're thinking about. Or possibly you're thinking of SimCity. In France, a mayor is a mostly symbolic position at the top of the local organization, and his job is usually mostly diplomacy and public relations. The authority to pass such regulations lies within the council, and...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    Yet apparently your mistaken belief that your understanding of what's polite is universal is something you do want to impose on others. Here's information you may find helpful: Politeness isn't a fixed concept and in fact entirely depends on the people present, their cultural backgrounds and...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    That, or they could not do what you suggest, which is the easier and better option. You may want to not see people playing games... in which case I recommend finding places with no people in them. The people have the right to play games, and you may want it taken away, in which case it's up...

    French Mayor Decries "Settlement" of Virtual Pokemon in His Town

    Except the Mayor isn't the one who gets to decide if the town should be an AR-free zone or not. The individual landowners do. The Mayor isn't even within his rights to decide the public areas should be Pokemon-free - that's up to the citizens and ultimately the French state.

    Cheating in Rainbow Six Siege, Even Once, to Result in Permabans

    Yes, because instead of making it at all difficult to cheat in the game, they instead will ban people... with zero recourse... being a company known to make extremely buggy software. Also having very fucking nebulous definitions there. "unathorized version of the game client"; "detriment to...

    No More Paypal Payment Protection for Crowdfunding Pledges

    It's not subjective at all. Developing videogames costs money. This is a fact. The money is gone once spent. The food it's used to buy is gone once digested. These are also facts. From these facts is derived the fact that the process always has risks. Most of the time the risk is taken by...

    No More Paypal Payment Protection for Crowdfunding Pledges

    Literally everyone is arguing against you and yet you won't consider stopping arguing your point - which, mind you, is entirely wrong. It's turned into an assault onto your character because you raise no valid points. It's like arguing with someone saying "water isn't wet". Being deliberately...

    No More Paypal Payment Protection for Crowdfunding Pledges

    No, you're either trolling or haven't thought about the idea at all. The developers need money to pay for development hardware, for the food, apartments and such of the staff involved, and a billion other things. When the money's spent the money's spent. There were these things called...

    Only y'know the news came in several days before April Fool's and quite a few people found new jobs as early as February.
