If they were smart, they would not need to pay for being told they are (especially given that the tests are mostly rehashes)
And now they know EVERYTHING about you.
Joke aside, how much time did these sessions last, in years ?
Why ? Do you really remember his voice ?
Most of players last played it with the Orange Box when it got out, a while ago now. (although hl2dm is still played by a few thousands, but there is no Gordon voice in there)
Episode 2 was about 5 year ago.
Episode 1 was about 9 years ago.
I do not even remember how Episode 2 ended
Lets' just hope it doesn't go the Duke Nukem way
Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks fahrbot-bot
I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Here at least, I've heard about the game in the "News" again and again. (Belgium)
Such or such shop exceptionnaly opened at 22:00 so people could queue and buy the game at 00:00 (here shops are usually closed at 18:30).
Such or such "expert" speaking about the influence on the children of such "an incredibely well done game, so realistic and with such an incredible level of freedom
Is it so amazing that, with so much coverage, people not knowing anything about games would have an incentive, an urge, to put their hands on that "phenomenon" ?
I only remember that GTA IV was so boring, so repetitive and so identical to the previous ones that I put it aside for some other game.
Still, GTA IV was also highly rated and heavily advertised/covered by "journalists".
History repeats itself. Deal with it.
Don't call me a "dinosaur" : you are as old as you are in your head.
For many of us I guess you could look more at something around puberty.
ZX81 with 1k RAM here, and the one being used to post this has 8GB.
I know we should not complain about lack of options. Still, an "or more" would have been nice.
Tell that to Jack O'Neill
What stands out is that, in the US, your murderer will most likely be of the same artificial group than you.
I would guess that it means that people tend to stay among what they perceive as "themselves", and so that you are more likely to be murdered by people living close to you ?
Of all these murders, how many mugging going bad ? How many times was it by an aquaintance ?
On another note, I wonder if these statistics exist for hair color, or even eye color for that matter.
It would still feels weird with a mod 360
x being in N
1 360 129600 -> Zero (360^x)
1 360 720
1 360 719 -> 359 (1 + 359 * x)
1 360 361 -> One ((x + 1)& 1 + 360
Sony called its PSX "PS One" when it was becoming obsolete.
Maybe it's what they expect about this already low-middle range PC.
What the hell is wrong with their numbering conventions? They went from Xbox 360 to Xbox 1? Are they starting all over again from version 1?
No, they just switched to a mod 360 versioning system.
Then it should be Xbox Zero
The game will only be funded if at least $1,000,000 is pledged by Sunday Apr 7, 10:57am EDT."

If the address you used for them is the only one that has got infected emails in a small time window
Maybe they are affraid of their reputation.
Maybe they are the one who sold the list.
Maybe they just don't care.
It does not really matters : they failed to protect their custommers.
I also have used one email address made unique for each "service" contact for years.
I don't even bother to complain anymore when something fishy happens : I simply overwrite all the (mostly already wrong) information for the benefit of their database then delete/disable the account and delete the email address.
This also work wonders for "lesser" social contacts that may be
By the way, knowing the name of said provider would help your fellow geeks & nerds.
Why the first and last four ?
On the web site, the payment methods only display the last four. Are you telling me they kept the first four "just in case" ?
One could hope they store the last 4 four digits separately, and the full one in a place that can only be written and not read by the web site systems. But then, one could hope the one(s) responsible for this understand the basics of security.
And then again
A) 1234-XXXX-XXXX-5678 ? Waste of space ? Really ?
B) 12345678 ? Then why tell they are the first and last four digits ? Did the thief really needed more information on what he got ?
C) 1234-9999-9999-5678 ? Call me paranoïd but given the "first and last" I can't help but think it's likely.
