    Get Ready for Targeted Ads on Your Smart TV

    How do ad's of ANY kind "enhance the viewing experience"? I mean really. What kind of horse shit statement is this? Also this is not new.

    The Division 2 Ditching Steam Is "A Long-Term Positive," Says Ubisoft

    Welcome to why it took forever for stores to support the chip. Oh wait. Some places **STILL** don't support it. Looking at you Royal Farms. You support Apple Pay but not chip. Not to mention if you use Apple Pay you still have to sign. Kind of defeats the purpose of speed. And it is not a...

    EA Blames Zelda for Mass Effect Andromeda’s Failure

    The problem with ME:A was the writing. Glitches and bad animation I can deal with (and can ultimately be fixed) but the dialogue and overall story reads like some fan fiction I downloaded off Usenet. Only a complete rewrite would fix the issues.

    Fallout 76 Petition Demands a Single-Player Only Mode

    The fantastically watered down Fallout 4. (Game play machincs. Story and lore options.) The raising of the Fallout 4 DLC (to give us more... in fact we got less than NV.)

    France to Ban Mobile Phones in Schools

    Pagers were taken away and given back to parents if students were caught with them when I was in HS (graduated in 96). Why are phones any different? Why were they allowed to get to this point?
