Craig R.Net Neutrality: let the lawsuits begin! (Which were going to be filed if the FCC moved to even so much as corrected a typo in their previous rulemakings)02/26/2015 - 6:59pm
Matthew WilsonThis is a interesting long form article about xbox live since halo 2. http://www.polygon.com/a/the-second-generation-of-xbox-live/page-102/26/2015 - 6:01pm
ConsterJust take pride in joining the group of net neutrality nations, even if it's only temporarily.02/26/2015 - 1:24pm
Matthew Wilsonfcc passed net neutrality. now lets hope they dont screw up the details. ps I am not holding my breath on that one.02/26/2015 - 1:03pm
ZippyDSMleeIf I could stand blizz I would do what I do in Facebook and use zippy, they can screw off if they do not like it.02/26/2015 - 9:31am
Michael ChandraAh. Now THIS is a good reason to not want to enable RealID: Anyone with your email can try adding you as a friend, leading to complications if they find out you're using it but declining their request.02/26/2015 - 5:15am
Michael Chandra(Also, why the hell would you not announce this?? Now people think they got a bug.)02/26/2015 - 5:11am
Michael ChandraThe only argument against the second that I've read so far is 'I'm afraid I'd accidentally RealID instead of BattleTag someone'. How secure are the RealID databases anyway?02/26/2015 - 5:10am
Michael ChandraIt's a silly argument detracting from the two main issues: Is this safe (so RealID only enabled but not given out through twitter in any way) and is it problematic to force people to 'use' RealID without actually sharing it with others?02/26/2015 - 5:10am
Michael ChandraGot to love how people immediately bring up 'yeah I don't see a problem with using my real name, it's not as if people can find me with it'. Maybe not you, but that doesn't mean others cannot be found.02/26/2015 - 5:08am
Michael ChandraSo apparently it's because they wanted to tie it to Parental Controls and didn't want to make a separate parental control for it due to that taking effort.02/26/2015 - 5:03am
ZippyDSMleeWhy do they have billing account name and user name confused? Never understood that....02/26/2015 - 3:29am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-25/google-s-computers-learn-to-play-video-games-by-themselves that is fairly impressive.02/25/2015 - 9:21pm
MechaCrashA universal ID among all of your characters across all games is a good idea. Making it use your real name instead of a screen name of your choosing is a horrible idea.02/25/2015 - 5:45pm
Michael ChandraThey also said posting on the forums was optional. To be honest, I really do NOT get why you'd introduce a new feature, brag about it and then secretly put a lock on it.02/25/2015 - 4:52pm
InfophileTwitter integration is a lot more optional than the forums (which was the last place they tried to enforce real names). So I don't see the backlash being as strong this time, especially since they aren't adding the requirement to an existing service02/25/2015 - 12:59pm
Michael ChandraIn the Real ID info, it's an optional thing for friends. Enforcing its usage for tweeting seems rather unnecessary.02/25/2015 - 12:14pm
ZippyDSMleenothing like a a few crashes inbetween moveing 400gb of data....02/25/2015 - 12:09pm
Michael ChandraOkay, so Blizzard's memory officially only goes back four years, as they cannot remember the backlash last time they tried forcing people to use their real names.02/25/2015 - 12:09pm
IvresseOnly context I can provide at the moment is the response from Blizz customer service: https://twitter.com/BlizzardCSEU_EN/status/57060293549676544402/25/2015 - 11:31am
PHX Corp@Craig R. I'm still testing Windows 10 Technical Preview as a consumer in advance of the final build02/25/2015 - 11:30am
IvresseBeen seeing a few people unhappy on Twitter recently due to the new Twitter integration in World of Warcraft, as they're just finding out now it requires an active Real ID system, which shows players real names...02/25/2015 - 11:02am
MechaTama31Every version of windows is more patronizing than the last. It'd be nice if they could release a non-idiot edition, where you agree not to pester their tech support about your unsigned drivers or whatever else MS thinks they're saving you from.02/25/2015 - 9:02am
prh99If it weren't for the games I'd go completely Linux.02/25/2015 - 2:18am
Craig R.Just ready to throttle MS in general for how much time I have to spend fighting their software, whether it's OS or Office :P02/25/2015 - 12:48am
Craig R.I finally installed Win8.1 at work. It's got it's +s and -s.02/25/2015 - 12:48am

Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.ign.com/articles/2015/02/25/owner-of-power-rangers-property-wants-van-der-beek-bootleg-video-taken-down no shock here. too bad too because it is more likely than not that that fan film will be better than the real movie.02/24/2015 - 10:18pm
MechaTama31Between never really watching Power Rangers, and the sound effects drowning out dialogue, it was kind of hard to follow what was going on. But watching Katee Sackhoff kick some ass is always welcome. :)02/24/2015 - 8:46pm
ZippyDSMleeYa trying to find soemthing easy, broswer nutreal that has a simple account system02/24/2015 - 8:20pm
Sora-ChanGoogle+? Or if you want to go old school: Livejournal. Anyway, I have many reasons to why I don't like Facebook. I wouldn't even be using Google+ if it weren't forced.02/24/2015 - 7:51pm

ZippyDSMleeI never got into IRC only went to acouple chat rooms.02/24/2015 - 5:25pm
WonderkarpI need ta a good IRC. Having an awful day and I need some advice from people02/24/2015 - 4:58pm
ZippyDSMleeThats what IRC is for :P02/24/2015 - 4:58pm
WonderkarpI wish there was like, a major chatroom, where you could take a number, wait for your number, and then when it comes up, you can just vent for 5-10 minutes to random people. a support chatroom for those who just cant take it anymore.02/24/2015 - 4:57pm
prh99Speaking of making people feel unsafe check this idiot out http://bzfd.it/1GpX6Zj he made what appeared to be creditable threat to Brianna Wu to make fun of GG.02/24/2015 - 4:09pm

prh99And they have to start over at least once.02/24/2015 - 12:35pm
Andrew EisenPapa Midnight - I'd say at least 10 years.02/24/2015 - 12:22pm
prh99be an a**hole, somewhat different than doing so over twitter. Also there is the possibility of being caught. At the end of the day cons are completely optional, not attending is an option if they legitimately don't feel safe. 02/24/2015 - 12:20pm
Papa MidnightApparently, Rockstar has delayed GTAV on the PC yet again. The new date is April 14th. That brings us to over-a-year-and-a-halfs delay. At what point do we reach Duke Nukem Forever territory?02/24/2015 - 12:10pm
prh99For all we know those people would attend anyway. But hey conjecture is as good as fact right. Most of if not all of them seem to prefer hiding behind pseudonyms on Twitter and YouTube, do it in person means having to look at another human being and...02/24/2015 - 11:58am
prh99Being uncomfortable != being unsafe as for more harassment than usual, evidence please. Who's blaming the victims? I don't recall anyone saying they were responsible for their harassment in this case.02/24/2015 - 11:52am
WonderkarpOh Em Gee! NEW RIVER CITY IN DEVELOPMENT! http://nichegamer.net/2015/02/a-new-river-city-game-is-being-developed-for-the-3ds/ I squeeled with glee02/24/2015 - 8:32am
Michael ChandraMight as well be on the 'winning' team, who cares if the people undergoing severe harassment aren't in your monkey-circle. It's not as if we can care about more than 150 people at the same time after all.02/24/2015 - 5:23am
Michael ChandraBut hey, go ahead and blame the victims. It's not as if that part of society will ever change.02/24/2015 - 5:22am
Michael ChandraAnd I don't see how 'we want to actually feel safe rather than undergoing even more abuse than normal at a convention' is hypocrism.02/24/2015 - 5:21am
Michael ChandraAnd his response was to actively lie about his own behaviour and claiming he is vehemently against doxxing and such. So you are basically defending a liar with lies. Good job!02/24/2015 - 5:20am
Michael ChandraThe problem never was 'we want to shut him up', it was 'he actively contributes to an unsafe environment and we don't feel safe knowing his presence likely will attract those who rape- and deaththreat us.'02/24/2015 - 5:19am
prh99http://strib.mn/1ADlO6r <--Yet another reason to pray for grid lock in congress, they are ignorant and dangerous.02/24/2015 - 3:14am
Matthew Wilsonwell that is what they get for lying, and yes what they did can have a effect if devs dont work around. ps I use a nivida card like it.02/24/2015 - 1:51am
Goth_SkunkNow THIS is interesting... Nvidia is being slapped with a class action lawsuit for false advertising: http://ow.ly/Jyzu902/24/2015 - 1:33am
MechaTama31Ah.02/23/2015 - 8:19pm
Andrew EisenAs in the tweets and everything in that Destructoid community blog post are completely made up. Yes, the tweets are fake.02/23/2015 - 8:11pm
MechaTama31The NOA thing is a joke as in the tweets are fake, or a joke as in NOA thought that was funny?02/23/2015 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenWhat specifically are you referring to?02/23/2015 - 7:18pm
Craig R.Kind of no excuse on Facebook, where you can type to your hearts content. Twitter is a different beast with only 140 chars, but nobody is learning the lesson.02/23/2015 - 7:15pm
Craig R.As we see time and time again, most of the people left in charge of social media accts are pretty tone-deaf02/23/2015 - 7:14pm
Goth_SkunkOn a lighter note, for fans of Homestar Runner and Bruno Mars, I found this to be very humorous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6IKTNmn3Uo02/23/2015 - 6:57pm
Andrew EisenThat's some incredibly generous wording in that article, to say the least. Anyway, great to see everyone playing nice during a contentious issue.02/23/2015 - 6:29pm
prh99It would seem hypocrisy is no stranger to either side. "We are against censorship until it's someone we don't like". I don't know what they thought was going to be accomplished by uninviting him.02/23/2015 - 6:16pm
Goth_SkunkLet Baldwin Speak: #GamerGate chalks up another victory. http://ow.ly/JxKGS by Allum Bokhari, the same gentleman that gave us the lovely GamerGate demographics information.02/23/2015 - 5:44pm
WonderkarpI dont think Nintendo is that stupid anyway.02/23/2015 - 2:18pm
Andrew EisenI just want to reiterate in case anyone missed it that the "Nintendo tweets tone-deaf Black History Month stuff" is a joke.02/23/2015 - 2:16pm
Papa MidnightRetroactive continuity doesn't work in the history of things where blacks in Japanese media have historically been portrayed with every single stereotype possible in effect. Admittedly, though, it's probably that my perspective here is a biased one.02/23/2015 - 11:03am
PHX Corphttp://www.gamespot.com/articles/dead-or-alive-5-last-round-contains-game-breaking-/1100-6425453/ DOA5:LR has a Game Breaking bug says Koei Tecmo Games02/23/2015 - 10:28am
MechaCrashAnd that is why she is now purple.02/23/2015 - 9:53am
MechaCrashThe thing about Jynx is that yeah, she *is* a stereotype, but she's a stereotype of a thing that doesn't exist in America. So the original reference was lost, and she wound up being interpreted as a golliwog: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golliwog02/23/2015 - 9:52am
MechaTama31This is from Nintendo of America, though. I don't see what excuse they could have for doing something so tone-deaf. And the #nailedit tweet? That had to be on purpose.02/23/2015 - 9:43am
Wonderkarpis it? I assumed as much cause it was funny to begin with.02/23/2015 - 9:01am
Andrew EisenIt is hilarious. It's also a joke.02/23/2015 - 8:55am
Wonderkarpcatch 22. Can you make a cutesy cartoonish platformer like Mario staring a Black Character and not have it seem racist? I ask this after Hannibal Burress's Tweet regarding the Diversity of the Mario cast02/23/2015 - 8:42am
Wonderkarpif you dont once the floodgates opened.02/23/2015 - 8:39am
WonderkarpThat is kinda hilarious. I dont think Nintendo ment any harm on there. Japanese company and all. Its definently a foot in mouth thing. I dont think they saw what they were doing as harmful and tried to be nice. It was kind of a Damned if you do damned if02/23/2015 - 8:39am

Goth_SkunkHere's something I'd like to see discussed: What's the status of Six Days In Fallujah? The game is finished, it's ready to go, but it's not being published. Why not? Is it still 'too soon?' Why does the developer not self-publish it on Steam?02/23/2015 - 6:02am
prh99It's not, which is why I said may as well when he mentioned someone going to bed eventually.02/23/2015 - 12:35am
Papa Midnight"...the discussion seems to have side tracked to who's attacking who." -- prh99, you'll have to clarify to me how that differs from any of the other times this same thing comes up.02/23/2015 - 12:31am
prh99Also Karp, have to agree with the others, that's not what that Kernel article said.02/23/2015 - 12:19am
Goth_SkunkI don't sleep until the sun rises, so goodnight, sleep tight.02/22/2015 - 11:53pm
MechaCrashI just think it's good fun to watch people who have no trouble throwing scurrilous accusations and telling people to "grow a thicker skin" lose their minds at the slightest hint of incivility towards them.02/22/2015 - 11:51pm
prh99May as well, the discussion seems to have side tracked to who's attacking who.02/22/2015 - 11:46pm
MechaCrashNot too much more. It's almost midnight here, one of us is going to have to go to bed eventually.02/22/2015 - 11:42pm

Papa MidnightI may have dated myself with that one...02/22/2015 - 11:27pm

PHX CorpBefore this becomes something Straight out of a Wrestling match, I attempted to try changing the subject of gamergate in favor of something else before it gets out of hand02/22/2015 - 11:22pm
Goth_SkunkAre you suggesting that's what I do? Please, enlighten me.02/22/2015 - 11:20pm
