    Epic Games Sues Apple

    I had a lot more typed but erased it all. My point ultimately boils down to this: The regulators are going to define a market more based on number of consumers or sellers involved in that market than they are the technological description of the market itself. If there's a billion transactions...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    I'm not a huge fan of Valve, but the big thing they have going for them is that they don't own the platform that their store exists on. Google, Apple, MS, and Sony all own and control the platforms that their stores exist on so they can create problems for other stores coming into existence...

    Customizable controller let's you configure controls

    Yep. Whatever floats your boat. The only annoying part of the controller issue in some games is when they don't pause the game when the batteries die on the controller. They revert to KB and Mouse which for me is sitting a few feet away. Mid-combat that can be a pain in the ass to scramble for...

    Customizable controller let's you configure controls

    A keyboard and mouse sucks for gaming on the couch. I used to love keyboard and mouse but I really can't go back. Sitting at a desk for gaming for me is a dead deal.

    The Year Windows Died at Home and Nobody Cared

    I currently, at work, have 8 windows open across 3 screens in Windows 10. That's probably a little on the low side for numbers of windows opened. That doesn't count multiple tabs in a browser. Why search for a program? 99% of my time is using the same programs every single day. They all sit in...

    The Year Windows Died at Home and Nobody Cared

    Used it since DOS and disagree with all your points except the control panel / settings. That's a hot mess. But, the rest of the UI? I get along with it fine especially since most of my computer use at home these days is either sitting on a couch with a gaming PC hooked up to a TV ... or using a...

    Google replacing Google pay with less functional, entirely different app with same name, old service dead on April 5 (in US)

    Yeah, we don't have that here. I'm not in the USA anyway. He shrugged his shoulders when I asked him about his driver's license.

    Google replacing Google pay with less functional, entirely different app with same name, old service dead on April 5 (in US)

    I know at least one person who never carries a wallet and uses their phone to pay for everything. Oddly enough, that means they never have their driver's license either so I have no idea what they plan to do if they get pulled over by the cops.

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    Steam wants users to browse past as many games as possible hoping that browsing turns into sales. They hope that eyes on goods turns into sales. Steam's goal isn't to make it stupid easy for me to find the specific type of game I'm looking for it is to get maximum eyes on maximum numbers of...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    See, I find Steam's store front to be a big steaming pile of shit. Finding games I want to play usually involves digging through a pile of crap I don't want to maybe find the few that I do. Everything for them exists in a big ass bucket and filtering is done by whatever tags someone applies to...

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    Yep. While other people's mileage may vary, I haven't seen any more bugs than I did in any of their previous titles. Also, Skyrim as an example had far more bugs for me than Cyberpunk has had and got nowhere near the same bad press.

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    Well, that's sort of the point. The video game industry is chock full of unmet promises from devs. None of the media or long-time game players are so naive that they should be shocked by a promise that wasn't kept. But, sometimes they do get a little over-excited and it spins out of control and...

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    Frankly, I think the public criticism of the game is more to do with the unmet promises and people getting overly excited than any bug issues. While I recognize there are bigger issues on consoles, on PC I really don't have any issues preventing me from playing and enjoying the game. It isn't...

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    I agree. They may have overpromised but that's not abnormal for the video game industry, and many others. Hardly going to net any charges by a government.

    Why? They sold a ton of copies. Unless I'm mistaken they're hardly hurting for a dollar at the moment.
