    Respawn Bans Over 355,000 Apex Legends Cheaters

    Its been pretty bad, people could warp around so they disappear and appear behind you, they'd run aimbots so you'd basically insta-die. I noticed a lot of people get disconnected this weekend. I'm thinking it must have found out they were cheating. Nice part is I'd solo my way into 2nd place...

    Ubisoft Apologizes for "Controversial" Relationship in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC

    I think its mostly about them not spending the extra effort when they said they were doing a homosexual story line. They could have come up with some kind of adoption story or something. Seems like they opted for a cheaper route so they had to make fewer scenes which I think is why some are...

    Tencent Will Use a Police Database to Verify the Identity of Mobile Gamers

    I thought they determined myopia was mostly due to not getting enough sunlight to the eyes. Apparently vitamin D is generated in the eye when it gets sunlight that helps to prevent it. Ah well.

    EU Wants to Scrap Seasonal Time Changes

    Silly thing is, people got up early, guess what they still turned the lights on, it didn't save anything. Oh it got dark earlier, they turned the lights on. Its a bunch of nonsense. I don't see where it could have ever saved any energy. Anymore, many businesses are 24 hour operations with...

    An Analysis of the Take-Two Interactive Lawsuit Against a GTA V Cheat Creator

    Cheating in online games isn't derivative it's disruptive, it ruins the function of the game for those who don't participate in cheating. If its on offline game and you want to cheat, then you're only cheating yourself.

    Australian Research Finds That Opening Loot Boxes Is Equivalent to Gambling

    These must really piss them off then. Any arcade game is trading coin for the chance to win a slot to put your name. Crane games trade coin for a chance to win a toy. Toy vending machines trade coin for a random toy (wow exactly like loot boxes). The only difference is because its an online...

    Consumers Turn Against Skype Since Microsoft Acquisition

    Can You Do VR On A Budget PC?

    I wonder if you could get by with a slower CPU and just get a high quality 1070 or better video card and it work ok? I have a really old i7-965 system that has been getting by and wonder if I could update the video card and get a vive or something.

    Cord-Cutting Could Cost Pay TV Industry $1 Billion in a Year

    I believe their method is to keep your data caps the same, and then doubling your bandwidth our of the goodness of their hearts. So when you inevitably bust your cap they can up charge you, then move you to a higher costing tier. At least that what's happened to me.

    Are Algorithms Racist?

    The title is click bait, the results are based upon certain criteria. It'd be like picking 3 guys out of 10 and the results happen to pick 3 of the same race. The process isn't racist, it's the interpretation that is.
