Comment Re:Suing a game manufacturer? (Score 1) 273

Thanks for the replies - and, no, the Sony server hacks hadn't slipped my mind. They just don't apply to me. I'm not opposed to fun, I'm just not seeing how I could justify spending gobs of money on it (however, I suppose in a few more years my boys will be gaming and I'll have a reason) and so I don't really follow the scene.

It had totally slipped my mind that online games charge monthly fees (I'm slow this morning).

Comment Suing a game manufacturer? (Score 1, Flamebait) 273

Outside of the game causing your console to overheat and burn down your house, why would anyone sue a game manufacturer? Outside of the Atari 7800 Impossible Mission fiasco, I've never even been all that upset with a game.

Am I missing something? I probably am, since I also miss why adults sink so much money into games. Don't you people have children? Don't you drink?

When you write a headline and you're trying to be "hip" by using "buzzwords", please try to put them in the order in which they are actually relevant to what's going on.

I had to read this one twice to figure out it wasn't about "crowdsourcing", or "evolution", but rather about the fact that "3-D Printable Objects are Evolving faster thanks to Crowdsourcing". /pedant
