You forgot "and have another studio finish the rest of the planned features for release as DLC."
If you're going to have crime then it's better to have it organized and out in the open. Easier to keep track of and keep from getting too out of hand.
Heh, I can see that.
Completely recode the game in C#/.Net and have IE specific calls to run the game. Force minecraft players to keep IE completely updated to run it, even old versions.
$2billion advertising campaign for IE11 or 12 doesn't sound so far fetched.
They should have bought minecraft years ago then. Back when the hype was starting and they could have gotten it for a couple million.
Kinda curious as to how they're going to screw it up.
Forced windows 8 integration?
Port the x-box port back to windows and drop the java version?
Mandatory Realms hosting for multiplayer so they can police it and add microtransactions for diamonds? "10 credits = 1 diamond. Or buy a pack and save! Available packs include the 64 diamond Stack Pack, the 574 diamond Block Stack Pack, or the best value the Diamond Block Dick To Pierce The Skies pack!"
You weren't a teenager during the 90's, were you?
Vague splotch of color, not even moving, was easily enough information...
Living in the middle of a wyoming town and getting 3Mbps on a good day (advertised as 15meg) I'm in the same situation, though we don't find it to be enough bandwidth. 2 netflix streams is enough to shut everything else down and even with an untouched connection we can't videochat with any good quality.
This should change relatively soon with the unified network rollout getting hundred gig pipes all around the state and more exit points than just I25 south to denver. But I tend to be pessimistic about telecoms actually delivering what they tell politicians and get government cash for.
Stick 1 pointy haired MBA and 5 interns on the task of turning the pneumatic cannon into an electric fish puree launcher for fish sticks. You'll get your live fish railgun in a week and only 27x over budget.
Of course. A review panel that can't find a fault gets disbanded, because they obviously aren't performing their function properly.
I call bull shit on this fertilizer stuff.
Like many officers?
Police cruisers already have cameras, and we're already seen cases where the camera is disabled by the officer because they don't think bureaucrats with no experience have the right to judge them. And that's not getting into the officers who disable them or "lose" the footage after the fact to cover up their own crimes.
I'm all for these body cams, but don't expect it to be received with open arms or to change behavior overnight.
I suspect if this passes there is going to be a spike in google searches for "how to secretly disable camera and make it looks like equipment failure".
The pilgrims faced starvation and death the first winter until the native americans introduced them to corn based ethanol to power their tractors.
Yeah. My question is what malware are they stealing the idea from.
Something their CEO caught probably.
I thought dogecoin smelled like a dead horse that's been beaten to a thin paste of desperate attention grabs and herd mentality?
I was going to go with shame and regret.
But without mining the core out of an asteroid, where will we build our secret space lairs?
Won't somebody think of the mad scientists?
