Historically speaking, America is a teenager compared to Europe. The overconfidence and smugness is typical. If the US lasts a few hundred more years, it'll likely be more humble and mellow about things. Right now, it still feels like it has something to prove and that it's invincible.

Bitcoin and its ilk are usually referred to as "cryptocurrencies". The idea is to have a system where exchange of goods and services cannot be tracked back to individuals.

If you pirate this game, you are a dick, plain and simple.
Just looking for clarification... is the amount she owes changing, or are all of those actually "different" charges that add up together to over $3.2 million?
Come off it. All this does is send a message that game publishers can be influenced by a vocal minority of people who have nothing to do with video games.
I noticed the Macbook appeared to be running Windows 7 for some reason, unless my eyes were playing tricks on me. It did not look like a Mac desktop.
>To begin with 99% of commercial games don't even have a Linux version, so there's nothing to sell to Linux gamers.
You could have said the same thing about Macs earlier this year. The rest of your points make sense, but this is a silly comment to make.
Because that would make too much sense. That's why not.
