    Sierra is back!!!

    While I wasn't impressed with The Silver Lining, a lot of people seem to like it. Have you taken a look at that? It's a fan made KQ game. And the reason I wasn't impress with The Silver Lining, might just because I can't play point and click adventure games any more.

    How I Screwed Myself Out Of A Job At Insomniac Games

    Isn't that almost always the case? Companies are asking too much most of the time. One of the jobs I applied for was asking for apple troubleshooting skills. I asked them about it, and the guy told me, he doesn't know why it's in the requirements as they don't use any apple computers. Lots...

    IFPI Chief: Blocking Pirate Bay is Not Censorship

    You mean, like someone that killed another, must not have ever done anything else in his life that's worth anything, right?

    Activision Notes Industry-Wide Downturn In Pre-Orders

    I thought the general consensus was that fc3 was great? I never played it. I'm glad pre ordering is going down. Esp with all these preordering bonus stuff that really shouldn't even be bonuses.

    Paedophile Snared As Google Scans Gmail For Images Of Child Abuse

    This is my question as well. I mean, in this case, the guy was a convicted sex offender. But if someone spams your email with cp, are you screwed? Though I don't generally do it, some people just leave emails there that they don't read. I know I've done that in the past, esp with certain emails...

    Why are almost all indie games 2D?

    Essentially, it comes down to money. While it's not impossible, it is improbable that a small team can put as much money into the assets of the game. Most small teams also don't have dedicated writers, as that would mostly end up being a waste of money, if they have to pay for it or split the...

    Dotcom’s Assets Attacked From Multiple Directions

    It's funny, because he looks like Jim Sterling.... >.> Anyway, I'm all for the guy going free. He might not be perfect, far from it. But what he's being prosecuted for is BS.

    C.I.A. Admits Penetrating Senate Intelligence Computers

    Agreed. We all know Gov't is doing incredibly shitty stuff. So, if it turns on itself. I can't help but say, "Good."

    You have rested for 26 Days and 8Hrs...

    How..... do people play Icewind Dale? Seriously, I own it, and I tried to play it, but holy crap, I think I'm missing something but I get utterly destroyed by the enemies in that game so easily. I've never played the board games or nothing though. I did play Pool of Radiance (LOVE THAT GAME...

    Should WoW Thieves Be Sent To Real Prisons?

    The article didn't go into detail on how the item was stolen... at least I didn't see it when I was going through it. Was it stolen due to hacking an account or something? Or did someone ninja loot him? Or used an in game skill to steal it? I know, it sounds dumb, if it was an in game...

    Teen Creates App That Exposes Sellout Politicians

    This is actually a good thing. Lots of people these days, kids and adults, use their phones for everything. While the information was previously available in many other avenues, having it on the phone might actually increase the possibility of it being read.

    Why Windows Needs A Start Menu

    And they thought it was a good idea, both times to completely remove the old way with a new way, with no transition, or middle ground. So, they might've done end user research, but they clearly didn't ask what they needed to, or they didn't listen. If they did, then people wouldn't be...

    What Do Game Developers Make In Salary?

    I doubt most people that get into Game Deving, are doing it for the money. It's usually because, it's something they WANT to do.

    Mighty No. 9

    You know, looking at it... the arm looks a bit weird. Anyone else think so? I hope that the female character sections aren't mandatory and not in the middle of the rest of the game... if it's anything like what it shows, she looks like a character that'll just dodge and sneak passed things.

    FBI: Self-Driving Cars Could Be Turned Into Weapons

    .... As opposed to putting a bomb into a car, a brick on the pedal from 200+ feet away? Sure, you can't do so as accurately from farther away but it's essentially the same thing. Hell... you can bypass all that just by having parked car with a bomb in the trunk and a remote detonator...

    What didn't you like about the Gun mechanic? I didn't think it did anything amazing, but I don't see anything wrong with it personally. It is overpowered though, esp against vehicles.

    DARPA Tests Self-Guided .50 Caliber Sniper Rounds

    They're put into tanks we build then get rid of.. because, you know... jobs. I'm actually serious.:( Apparently, we do this... because of jobs and to keep factories going or something.

    More like they'd make it so you'd have to do everything through whoever they represent, with no other option, and barring that, they'll make it seem like it's impossible without them.

    Student Jailed For Refusing To Decrypt Data For Investigators

    Yes, but someone brought up the US's 5th amendment and compared to the UK's lack of privacy rights in recent times, which is why we're talking about it.

    Student Jailed For Refusing To Decrypt Data For Investigators

    He's technically right. The password thing should be protected by the 5th amendment and miranda laws, since what you said can be used against you, and basically be self incriminate. Not that the courts aren't trying to force you anyway. Laws, are all good and all, by when the "interpreters"...

    Hah! Losers! I'm Mighty No. 5394. :D I don't follow it much though. I only found out about the Dina Situation like 2 months ago. From that small footage I saw, it looks very reminiscent of MM. Though, personally, I had hoped it would look more like MMX, with a more mature looking...

    Adblock Plus: We Can Stop Facebook from Tracking You

    Yea, as long as you don't say "You've blocked this site", you're more or less golden. TBH, don't know why you would. It's not intrusive, and there aren't any loud video commercials. It's one of the few sites I haven't found the ads to be blinding.
