    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    Oh noes, my poor ego. Whatever will I do?

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    I am transgender, mate. Where should I start unpacking this little shitfest of yours? Or, should I even bother? Naw. Carry on, stay in the 1800s.

    PayPal's new refund policy has sellers up in arms

    I use things like Western Union for international payments. There is little stopping sellers from supporting alternative payment methods apart from laziness.

    Linux Gaming Across 9 Distros [Review in Progress]

    I've been running a Windows-free home shop for about 6 months now. I am a power user but not a power gamer (impending decrepitude does that). The only Windows game I am interested in playing is Supreme Commander Forged Alliance and the community client for it, FAF. Twelve years on, it is still...

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    I agree with you on that. Sex is a natural and beautiful aspect of the human condition, violence less so, if at all. I'd rather have my kids see hanky panky than violence, but as you say the latter gets a season pass whereas sexuality is deemed the debbils work. That being said, it isnt as...

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    While I see the funny (and it is), can you recognise that making fun of it, even casually, makes fun of bona fide sexual minorities?

    Sony: Would someone please think of the children!

    The underlying issue is one of double standards. I'm reminded of the whole lesbian backstory thing between two Overwatch characters. The aim of the backstory isnt to normalize LGBTQI+ personas, but to titillate a predominantly male (and cis/heteronormative) gaming audience. It is a cynical ploy...

    Star Citizen Selling A $900 Ship

    The problem is that this sort of halo model pricing normalizes charging, say, 100$ for other lesser ships... Which is yanking the arse out of the chicken to begin with. They arent aiming to make money off of this ship directly - it only exists to make the other stuff appear cheap by juxtaposition.

    Amazon will launch thousands of satellites to provide internet around the world

    Here in SA where I live, the gubment and its dogs have their paws deep in the pockets of the telecomms companies. They were made honorary shareholders when democracy rolled around. The end result is that its an artificially closed market, there are only four licenced telecomms companies, with...

    HUD Fines Facebook for Descrmination

    Surely suing isnt the same as fining? But yeah, anything that helps FB die can only be a good thing.

    Logitech M185 and Other Mice are Vulnerable to Keystroke Injection

    Maybe its an aesthetics thing. My batteries last long enough for when they run out for it to not be a constant annoyance. My equipment at work is wired and it doesnt get in the way that I even notice it, so theres that. I also have batteries on hand all the time so its a question of personal...

    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    I was reminded of the original Deus Ex. Now THAT game could use a remaster using this technology, I'd play the fuck out of it.

    Logitech M185 and Other Mice are Vulnerable to Keystroke Injection

    I use a M$ wireless mouse and keyboard combo that is banging on the 12 year old mark. It just keeps rocking and it still has the teflon feetses. The batteries on the mouse last forever, two months at least, even with daily use. I buy those big ass combo packs of cheap Agfa batteries so I never...

    Intel Shows Off Graphics Card Designs at GDC 2019

    The blue rectangle Larrabee design is pure minimalist beauty. I hope they continue the trend. This new design isn't too far off but it's a bit teeny bopper by comparison.

    Prisoners in England to Be Taught Code

    People are a product of their environment. There is no such thing as inherent criminality - only a power imbalance between the haves and the have-nots. The have-nots get the short end of the stick because the haves have loaded the social dice to protect their interests...

    Intel CPU Shortages Are Expected to Worsen in Q2

    Coppermine, anyone? Funny how that happened exactly 20 years ago. Leibnizzle's law: supply of CPUs halves once every 20 years.

    Soviet Themed Tycoon Game Shows Up on Steam

    I'm looking forward to Soviet-style make-work game mechanics. They used to do stupid things like have circular production, ferinstance a steel plant melts metal scrap into ingots, this gets sent to a finishing plant that produces bar and sheet, that gets sent to a recycling plant where it gets...

    Police Mistake Cryptocurrency Miner for Marijuana Farm

    Fuckin Oz nanny state needs to get with the program. They're also confiscating and crushing classic muscle cars if the driver is caught smoking the wheels. Nice place but needs a bit moar freedom. The real dinkum oil thing, not that yankee party line bullshit.

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    Thanks for the review! I'd have liked to have seen V64 numbers thrown into the mix; it makes sense to me that one would want to directly compare the new and the old in addition to the competitor's offerings. Also, I'm a lazy git and can't be arsed to go dig up numbers.

    Microsoft Guy: Mozilla Should Give Up on Firefox and Go with Chromium Too

    With Google quietly planning to bork their browser plugin landscape, a lot of devs (like moi) are concerned about future compatibility of hardware devices accessed from within the sandbox like fingerprint scanners and signature pads. Heck, at work we are still supporting IE8 because an old...
