Comment Dead (Score 1) 150

I'm finished with Blizzard. After the giant pile of diarrhea that was Cataclysm they decide to fix it with Pandas and Pokemon. Then we get a Starcraft sequel we waited years for that played the same as the first while being split into 3 games to make more money for Activision. Then there was Diablo 3 which was a worse game than it's predecessors and now we find out that they were blowing smoke up our asses by being a PC only company then cripple a flagship IP with a game that was killed by consolitis. Any semblance of the old guard has no more power anymore and they are nothing more than a cash register for Activision. It's a sad story: game company makes good games then gets bought by beancounters then turns into a shit factory over time. I don't care what Blizzard does anymore. Blizzard is dead.

Comment Thanks Google (Score 2) 110

I've noticed similar shadyness with Google ads and just about all "sponsored content" you see on websites. You see the bullshit tags like "Doctors angered at woman's self treatment" or links to sites that seem to do nothing more than try to scare you to invest. The internet is full of bullshit. Somehow, for some reason Google is one of the richest companies in the world because of it. I'd like to know, who actually clicks on this shit.

Comment To hell with Manning (Score 1) 341

It kills me all of this mindless hero worship for Manning. I don't care that he was gay even though it's obvious he had serious mental issues and should have never been allowed in the service much less given a security clearance. What really bothers me is that after leaking the information he could have likely gone unnoticed afterward. Wanna know how he got caught? He was bragging and making jokes about what he did with Adrian Lamo. Yes sir, that makes him a real hero. Manning was a real bradass...LOL On the other hand I don't agree with the government going after Assange. He's a Swedish citizen that owes no loyalty to the US. If all he did was receive and retransmit what Manning sent them then that's fine. If Assange helped him though that might be a different story. I also don't agree with the mistreatment of Manning. Someone needs to be brought to task for this. We have combatants in custody that are likely being treated better. I wonder. Just how many people may have died due to Manning's leak.

Submission + - John Melloncamp: We need tougher IP laws (huffingtonpost.com)

Vladius writes: "From the Huffington Post, John Melloncamp states that the DMCA is weak and "kind of a joke" when dealing with search engines. He also supports the removal of safe harbor provisions. All of this is being done, in his opinion, because it is ruining the music industry and costing us jobs."
