    TikTok Settles with FTC for $5.7 Million After Violating Child Protection Laws

    Sweet. Nothing wrong with a little government extortion. I'd sure be curious who is getting what kind of cut of that money.

    My credit card was comprimised on Steam

    Right. Nothing like blaming the victim in a credit card theft. Good lord.

    CVAA Regulations Affecting Multiplayer Chat Just Went Into Effect

    That's your opinion. It is NOT a self evident truth. Congress has passed laws requiring that concessions be made to allow equal access for the disabled. The very fact that this is required via legislation is all the proof you need to know that it is NOT the "governments job" to provide this...

    Star Control: Origins Has Been Removed from Stores Due to DMCA Take Down Notice

    I can only assume you are high as a kite right now. It would be a "absolute shame" ??? Give me a break. It wouldn't be worth a passing "meh". You do understand, I hope, that the entire reason for copywrite laws extending as long as they have is specifically to prevent legally sanctioned...

    GOG Connect. Giving you the DRM-free versions of Steam games

    I just wish they would "connect" every game so I could see at a glance if I already own a game on steam. If they can "connect" games this way, my way seems like it would be simple.

    US Senators Are Working to Secure Enough Votes to Reinstate Net Neutrality Rules

    They are aware, right, that to really implement a useful regulatory scheme to combat the problems they imagine they could, you know PASS LEGISLATION TO THAT EFFECT ? Apparently not.

    Foxconn Will Drain Lake Michigan to Make LCD Screens

    Oh, is that right ? How much "toxic waste" do you think the typical nuclear power plant discharges ? Another hint for the clueless: For most plants - ZERO. And when they do discharge water, the actual radioactive content of that water, sampled BEFORE dilution, is lower than the standard for...

    Foxconn Will Drain Lake Michigan to Make LCD Screens

    Anyone have an idea how many gallons of water are in Lake Michigan ? Care to guess how many days it would take for them to turnover the entire lake ? Try 1.3 E 15 gallons and 500,000 years. Idiocy on display, as usual, from "environmentalists"

    Comcast Cord Cutters Shunned...AGAIN

    What do you mean "come to this" ? All the services have been offering bundled discounts forever. This is not new. REPEAT, THIS IS NOT NEW. Ironic you mention HBO and Showtime. Are you aware that you likely pay less if you subscribe to BOTH ? That's called a bundled discount. Again, NOT NEW.

    Cambridge Analytica is Shutting Down

    No, they aren't. Hell, they aren't even the first entity to do this EXACT thing. You see, it's only viewed negatively when Donald Trump does it. When Barrack Obama does it, Facebook give's a wink and a nod and looks the other way. Cambridge Analytica was not the first, they were just on the...

    Bill Gates: Cryptocurrencies Have “Caused Deaths in a Fairly Direct Way”

    Right... right. Have you heard of shareholder meetings ? Now, granted, if you own 10 shares of Microsoft, I doubt they give a hoot what you say. But if you own, say $13 billion worth of stock in that company, second most in the company, pretty sure they care what you have to say.

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    Seriously ? We're discussing MASS SHOOTINGs like Parkland and Sandy Hook. If we're just talking about "shootings", now, I'd say there's a lot more to do in the cities of Chicago and Baltimore than there are in schools. Keep moving those goalposts!

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    No, you're right. I definitely get $50K worth of value out of my taxes every year. DUH. There are net takers and net makers. I bet the overwhelming majority of people posting here are not net takers.

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    Yes, actually. Good to put a name with someone repeating absolute falsehoods. In these 18 shootings, there are actually TWO that you could consider "mass shootings", IIRC. In the other 16, five people, total died, most from suicide. Some of them didn't even happen at a school.

    NRA Honors FCC Chair with Rifle for Repealing “Net Neutrality”

    Yeah, great! We should definitely have passed a 1000 page bill re-ordering 1/6 of the US economy under better gov't control, then, huh? Fucking brilliant. Fact of the matter is, they could have achieved a FAR better result with ONE PAGE, expanding Medicaid. End of story. But they never...

    Facebook Pulls VR First-Person Shooter from Conservative Political Conference

    I'm sorry, do conservatives not playing video games ? I'm here to tell you, contrary to whatever you may think, yes, WE DO.

    Facebook Pulls VR First-Person Shooter from Conservative Political Conference

    Yeah, no. The prime offender in the columbine case was a straight up psychopath. Go look it up. Nothing "made" him into a killler. He WAS a killer.

    Facebook to take on Steam with their own PC Gaming storefront.

    Price ? That's the only thing I imagine they'll have, and since they have over $5 Billion in cash on hand, they can easily sell games at a significant loss to gain market share. Expect their debut to include massive sales.

    Is Company of Heroes 2 really THIS heavy in Micro-Transactions?

    It was complete for the portion they released, just like the original that only had an American campaign. With Opposing Fronts they released the German and British Campaigns, and then the 3 hero unit campaigns - so to speak - with Tales of Valor. Have you played the original lately ? Despite...

    Steam Summer Sale will start on June 23

    Yeah, that was what made tuning in every day worth it. Now, it's to go thru the queue 3 times to get cards for a badge. Not the same, not even close.

    Solar Energy Farm Would ‘Suck Up All The Energy From The Sun’

    The best part is, that's by design. The media exists to twist facts into some kind of fake outrage that drives clicks and viewers. This one person's opinion, regardless of the accuracy of the quote - IS.NOT.NEWS

    Solar Energy Farm Would ‘Suck Up All The Energy From The Sun’

    Crazy, indeed. Construction generates jobs. Solar farms require almost no labor - i.e. jobs - at all.

    Seattle Considers Allowing Uber And Lyft Drivers To Unionize

    Uh, no. You can try and call it "labor laws" all you want, but what they are really doing is subverting the rent-seeking taxi-cab medallion, government sanctioned monopoly model, not labor laws.

    FAA Task Force To Recommend Drone Registry

    Wow, that's quite a lot of government regulation to be implemented by newly hired government employees you have there. And I'm sure, in grand DMV style, that' will work perfectly and prevent anything, ever.

    Uncharted 4 E3 Demo: why I hate console exclusives

    Eh, you have to give it time. I felt exactly the same way at first, but eventually got used to using the controller. Finished Uncharted and moved on to the Infamous games. Finished the first one twice and the second one once and was part way through a second play through when I dumped all my...

    Zombie game without the language?

    I'm sorry, but if you're concerned about playing games with family members, you ought to be bright enough to understand that in a game about hacking up / killing zombies, maybe it's not the nudity or swearing you should be concerned about. And ignoring that fact is, frankly, inexplicable.

    Grand Theft Auto V

    Well, to be fair, that is Project Management 101. If you know what you're doing, you should be able to figure out when you can have your product to the market, and for how much. Its really not all that crazy to expect a company that has released numerous products in the past to be able to...

    TotalBiscuit discusses review embargoes

    You do realize that nobody that works in PR at any company on earth thinks that way, right ? You want your brand attached to quality, not shit. Promoting something that's crap does not help your company in any way, shape, or form.

    TotalBiscuit discusses review embargoes

    To each their own, I guess, but good lord. When I run my Steam Calculator, I have a backlog of over 600 games. With sales, I could buy nearly HALF that backlog with $1000. I guess I'm just missing the point of bragging on spending $1000 on 14 games.

    Gaming Journalism Is Over

    Indeed, very much so debunked. The actual quoted figure is 78%, not 70%. But that's just a raw number that does not take into account hours worked or experience, let alone profession or area of expertise. Turns out, once all of those variables are accounted for, the difference quickly...

    Gaming Journalism Is Over

    The simple fact of the matter is that there is hardly enough information presented here by anyone for you to make a determination that they are sexist or misogynistic. What you are doing is playing out of the typical liberal playbook and trying to discredit anyone's opinion you don't like...
