I _loved_ that game. I was in the beta because I was a zine reviewer at the time and also enjoyed playing it a lot after release.

I think part of the reason it failed was because MSFT launched it using a monthly fee on top of the $50 initial purchase cost. Nuts, eh?

Anyway, I'll check out the game as it is now; it might be a good excuse to buy a new joystick.

But that's not what the law says and not what was meant by the people who wrote it.

The company ripping of MapleStory made a lot of money doing so and the fine was too light if anything.

Judges intepret and apply laws, they shouldn't be writing them or basing what they think the penalty should be on what they think is right. That is the job of the democratically elected legislature. No one voted for this judge.

If there was some tie in to emotional maturity,patience, wisdom, or even raw intelligence, that would better validate the value of VG more than just changes in the shape of the brain - which is quiet common among those engaged in repetitive mental behavior just like muscle develops according to to repetitive physical behavior.

I'm going to stab at your ignorant meme.

Bankers paid back all of the money from TARP with interest. It netted the US treasury a profit to spend on Pell Grants, food safety, and whatever other benevolent things you think government does.

The portion of TARP that did loose money was that which was invested in GM and Chrysler. Many billions lost - but that was solely to bail out the unions, not the companies. If they had gone into bankruptcy, they would have shed their union obligations and continued making cars.

It was comrade Obama's venture socialism in 'green jobs' that cost taxpayers.

Stop pretending you speak for the 99%. Get a job, anonymous coward freak.
