Indeed. I don't have any disposable money at the moment but the game is at the very top of my to-buy list. Amusingly I skipped the chance of acquiring every single Heroes of Might and Magic ever released for $10 (I'm a fan of the earlier games, specially Heroes III and the awesome mods out there) because most of them required uplay. No, thanks.
Still we will see some lunatic either dismissing this as an anomaly or... something. I kind of want to see how it will be twisted.
Awesome idea. I don't think you need to charge $12 for a subscription. Make it free with paid tiers. The free one offers, say, one game per month (dunno how many times they play) except for the bigger ones (between traditional rivals for instance). Then a tier starting at, say $1, offering all games. Then another tier for, say, $3 which will offer different angles, advanced analysis. A $5 would offer custom replays and multi-screen experience (the game keeps rolling but you can choose other angles or even a live chart with the game statistics). For $10 you could have full access to past games. And if you add $2 to any tier you get the experience ad-free.
Along with the streaming experience you can offer 'partnership' plans for fans that include tickets to matches, team merchandising (such as official fan t-shirts only available for subscribers) and bundle the streaming service to those packages. You know, add value.
Re: What have you lost? Quantify it. Fair Question after you've long jeered at music industry unable to quantify losses.
Wow. You are indeed a little tyrant dipshit. Where to start?
What have you lost? Quantify it.
Really? Does everything need a monetary value in your petty, distorted mind? The AUTHOR didn't bother putting a monetary value to it, he just released so people would enjoy it. How valuable is it when you want to reach everybody instead of limiting it by charging?
Yes. And I hate it. A particularly polarizing song, I'd say. It's not all solely positive for the tune as YOU assert. THIS makes me like UMG and copyright, though, to spare us from endless stupid version of the worst crap.
YOU think it's crap. And you may have any opinion you wish. But you CANNOT force your opinion on others. I hate rap. With passion. But I think it's awesome that there are plenty of people that like it and that it is able to thrive. Because I know there are plenty of people that hate metal but I love it. Thankfully we as a society agreed that freedom of speech is awesome and so we must allow even what we don't like. You see, you showed your despicable little tyrant here. If it's not the way you like then it should be taken down. You piece of trash.
But anyway, parody of favorite by some young punk likely annoys older listeners, so is a loss for them.
So what? What if the old songs are offensive to the youngsters? Should we take them down because of it? And what is the loss again? Nobody is forcing you to watch the video and listen to the parody. Not to mention there is plenty of jokes about the younger people running amongst the older generation. And why should anybody care? I'll ask again: SO WHAT?
I do hope you are doing it on purpose for the sake of trolling. If that's how you truly think then you are indeed a despicable piece of trash. Lucky you free speech also allow such type of idiocy, no?
You underestimate stupidity. You'd need an unworkable system to make it fully secure.
Why were the users allowed to forward their mail, and additionally, allowed to forward to non-government/cloud services?
You see, I agree with that to some point. The government needs to communicate with the outside world at some point. I'm not sure how CBP works but they surely need to send some mail out at some point. What could be done here is to make it a whitelist system where you need to submit external mails to approval (ie: John Doe must be contacted because X reason, his e-mail is Y so upon review, Y mail is allowed to communicate to that employee and that employee only). So the best alternative is to weed the stupid out and keep the system minimally workable. Maybe somebody better at security can prove me wrong?
Uh, because there's no history of police hitting the wrong people, right? Because drones are very, very precise and don't miss, ever, right? Because they would never apply military tactics to deal with citizens and fire at those trying to provide help to the target right?
Conspiracy? They've been real too many times to rule something as impossible or improbable.
In other words, at the exact moment that the APA suggests violence and video games are linked, and at the exact moment that violent video games have exploded in popularity and dissemination, violence amongst youth (and the general public) is trending downward.
According to their twisted logic this automatically means games are making the world less violent*. MOAR BULLETS AND BLOOD PLEASE!
*I personally believe it, I've restrained myself from beating the crap out of some idiots while gladly impaling virtual thugs in Madworld. offline, no swearing morons spoiling my gory fun.
