EA pulled Crysis 2 off of Steam, yet I can still install and play it from Steam. They only took it off the store, but they support and give me the game I paid money for. Even took the time to make it a seamless transition for me. It doesn't point me to Origin (like I bet EA would want it to), it just installs and goes, with not a problem to be had.
So that's what happens when Steam loses a game. Nothing at all.
The spin is always amazing. What's more amazing is the amount of people who fall for it. A person can be a saint, but one slip up somewhere's and your "enemies" will use it against you in the worst way. Create the bias now, and steer anyone who doesn't know any better towards the way they want them to.
It's alright Mike, most of us regular readers know what third-party liability is.
Go ahead, take that thought to the next step. Might as well shut off the internet, since we all know that's the best way to get virus's. While you're at it, you should cut off your head so you won't get dandruff...
Google doesn't stop you from going to a site, it just lets you know what it knows. Microsuck wants to be not only judge but jury, deciding that nope, you can't go to that site for your own good.
In the same vein, I wonder when they'll start pushing for the radio in my car to need an extra license, since it might be -shock- used to listen to music on. Free music, no less, or freely given at least.
Hmmm, what happens when some enterprising young people come up with the idea of putting dentists in hotels? Do they cancel each other out?
On a side note, I've had to travel a bit for work, staying at various hotels. For the life of me I can't recall ever hearing any music, most likely because it was "muzak" and easily ignored anyways. Can't see how it add's any value.
You might be saying that jokingly, but that's exactly the truth. I don't follow any media, I only look for what I want as I want it (and in with today's offerings, I don't want much). First time I've heard of that movie too.
Ok, honest assessment here. Never heard of this guy. I check out his site, he's got a preview. I honestly didn't think his stand up was all that great. Good, I've heard much worse, but not breaking me up.
Then at the end he's going "What, you didn't like that clip? Come on! I know there's something else in there you'd like" and that sold me. I dropped my $5, I might get around to watching it eventually, I really don't care about the material. It's the way he went about it, that was a very very human pitch, and it worked on me at least. I'll support the idea, and hope the man luck.
