Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

RIAA - Artists are realizing they can sell their own music online and get more profit while charging people less, them attracting customers is stupid like any industry, and people are kind of waiting for a change up in the structure of the music industry, because they know artists are going to sell their music online for cheaper and then they support the artist more.owo...I sure am glad those helpless companies _finally_ have a voice. ,MPAA-we charge more and more for dvds, and sue people, but for some reason people just dont want to buy "epic movie"! whats wrong?RIAA-cd sales are dropping, and Tiffany Jewellery we dont know why! we tried lashing  Tiffany Jewelleryout and adding minor copyright protection to cds, but we still cant get sales up! whats going on?ESA(representing EA and every other company)-we treat our customers like the pirates they are, and add copy protection that cant be extricated from a computer without a full wipe, and still people are buying less games! whats the deal?ESA - Well, meet the gamers, we are people who are hurting in economic downfall like movie and music goes.  Games cost $60 a pop, limit our download options, perform worse with legal copies, and companies are starting to charge money for demos...  Plus treating gamers like pirates, and we dont like crap put on our computers without:


Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Only we one more on that list and we could have the "Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse."

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

I sure am glad those helpless companies _finally_ have a voice.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

It makes complete sense for them to meet and compare notes. Those relying on dying business models need to stick together or there might be uncontrolled innovation or something...

I just can't wait until companies realize that they are destroying themselves by doing the stupid immoral drm/sueing/intimidation/protection rackets that they do...

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Well the CEOs are just ensuring a good golden parachute for them selfs so they can bail out when the company goes belly up..

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

They did this last year too. Not really big news here.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Just shows how eagerly the ESA are to walk in the other two's failing footsteps. And the recent events with Spore etc show just how thoroughly the ESA are shooting themselves in the foot by doing so.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Sounds more like a note-comparison session to me.

"Extortions illegal you say? Not the way WE have it planned..."

-------------------------------------------------- I LIKE the fence. I get 2 groups to laugh at then.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

MPAA-we charge more and more for dvds, and sue people, but for some reason people just dont want to buy "epic movie"! whats wrong?

RIAA-cd sales are dropping, and we dont know why! we tried lashing out and adding minor copyright protection to cds, but we still cant get sales up! whats going on?

ESA(representing EA and every other company)-we treat our customers like the pirates they are, and add copy protection that cant be extricated from a computer without a full wipe, and still people are buying less games! whats the deal?

looks to me like an "old dying business model" meets "overpowered drm model" circlejerk.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

MPAA - really bad movies lately, bluray is a rip off cost wise, and some places are changing around movie release dates pissing people off. (Harry Potter, in theaters, Nov, wait no, July 09, wait no June 09, wait no 2012...)

RIAA - Artists are realizing they can sell their own music online and get more profit while charging people less, them attracting customers is stupid like any industry, and people are kind of waiting for a change up in the structure of the music industry, because they know artists are going to sell their music online for cheaper and then they support the artist more.

ESA - Well, meet the gamers, we are people who are hurting in economic downfall like movie and music goes.  Games cost $60 a pop, limit our download options, perform worse with legal copies, and companies are starting to charge money for demos...  Plus treating gamers like pirates, and we dont like crap put on our computers without:

A. A warning
B. The ability to remove it
C. A plausible reason that hasn't already been destroyed

Some companies have decided to buy out other companies and destroy the bought companies branding value, game value, and then the big company decides to buy another company to repeat the process.

Arr, matey, gimme me games, I shall pirate them if you treat me like a pirate, arrr.

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

So the ESA, RIAA, and the MPAA are meeting under the purview of an alliance?

*Cue Imperial March music*

*That's the main theme for the Empire in Star Wars in case you didn't know*

Oh yeah, and "yaaaar"

Re: ESA Participating in Copyright Alliance Conference in D.C.

Sounds kind of counter integral to have a conference that is only 2 hours long. Sounds more like a meeting to dot the Ts and Is.

MaskedPixelanteI'm not sure how to feel about Ultron's mouth. I'm sure he has one in the comics, but this is getting dangerously close to Transformers "Optimus has a defined mouth and it looks super weird" territory for me.10/22/2014 - 8:49pm

quiknkoldI have a problem with games that use a digit for sequals when clearly they can be called something else. Five Nights at Freddy's 2? Nonono. Its "Another Five Nights at Freddy's" or "Five Nights Week 2"10/22/2014 - 5:30pm
