In terms of anticompetition law, that's just how it is. And I think it does make sense - if you have a competitive field, let people play, but if you have a massively dominant company, then we need…

In order for it to be considered anticompetitive, you have to be a dominant player in the market, seen to be seeking to squeeze out the competition. If you are a relatively small competitor, you can…

Not much of a "scam", though. You get the software you paid for, via a different freely-available distribution system, and if that is unsatisfactory, you get your money back. If you put that before a…

I'd guess that's the way they would go - the default shell would be much like you'd see on a PlayStation (which is just a custom BSD box). I like the fact that the Atari box is not locked down - you…

I don't know that I fancy their chances, but I hope they get somewhere. Expanding the Linux gamer base is a good thing, IMO.

If it's still essentially a Linux box in a retro Atari case, it could have the entire Linux game library available to it. That's pretty large already, and if the intention is for it to be a lower…

Lol. A renamed phone game (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.svv.kh2&hl=en_US) that goes for 99c on the app store. We're not that hard up for RPGs, are we?

I'd just say that when you mention switching to DX12 improved performance, that might suggest the cpu is struggling, and DX12's more efficient draw calls are helping. Can't really draw conclusions…

For me, I would honestly say that I do buy games at release in cases where I want to support the kind of game being made. It's not simply to support the developers, but to send my little part of the…

I'd say not a total disgrace like Airbender, in that it does have some good qualities, rather than atrocious across the board. The performances were OK, and you could imagine how they might have made…

In a way, it's like most games are in early access for a couple of years now, and the ongoing development "roadmap" is a part of the marketing strategy to keep the game relevant for an extended…

Glass really is a stinker. It's one of those films that wasn't just bad, but actively irritated me with the special way in which it sucked.

A new therapy for babies born with crippled immune systems. They collect some bone marrow, extract and edit the DNA, and then use a modified HIV virus as a delivery system. That's some clever stuff….

I think it's possible. York Minster was burnt out in 1984, and reopened in 1988. I believe the damage in Paris is worse, and my guess would be 5 - 10 years. Apparently one of the factors that slows…

Yes, hopefully this will be reparable. Many great cathedrals have been badly fire damaged, and survived. I like visiting cathedrals and castles and such, and it's very common to hear, for example,…

Just checked it out - thought it was very good. I like dark humour anyway, and I particularly like that style of stand up that really messes with the audience.

I watched Kevin Hart - Irresponsible. It's a very mixed bag, and we nearly gave up in the early part, but I'm glad we didn't. He is very talented, and when he hits the mark he does it well. There are…
