I think I should be the first person to not be dense here. I wasn't sure if It was a baggy shirt but I guess I've noticed it myself. And it just makes me sad because I don't want him to live unhealthy and have a fucking heart attack or anything. I feel like he gained weight fast and I'd prefer all the GB staff being around for at least 50 more years rather than 30.
Biggest Loser Giant Bomb Edition podcast, coming soon :P It could happen.
That doesn't seem right at all. This would be a much larger threat than me loaning my physical game disc to a friend or two, or selling my game on e-bay--both of which are blocked by Microsoft--so why would they allow this? That doesn't make a lot of sense.
How else are you going to loan digital games. All of Microsoft's policies are being set in place assuming an all digital, discless future. That's the end goal, to move everyone from discs to digital games. It's a better policy than Steam has.
When I have been deployed sometimes the showers were cold water only, sometimes there weren't showers.
If you have electricity go for the PS4.
I hope most people signing up for a job that may take them to faraway lands, such as those that military or peace-keepers could go to, are aware that the accommodations aren't always 5 stars.
Exactly. Most of the people I've known who've deployed spent most of their free time (which there isn't much of) watching movies, working out, talking to family, etc. I'm certainly not taking my Xbox when I go next year. There's no need for it, there will be other things to worry about, like doing a job.
The concerning thing is not a human being on the other end watching your every move, though I suppose if you take into account third party hackers that could still be an issue. The real worry is how adept this thing's algorithms are for discovering what you like and dislike so MS can have a nice little file on you to sell to marketing firms and aim specified ads at you.
I actually like targeted ads.
Years ago in college I received an e-mail from a professor with a list of books we'd need for class and as I was on Google about to search for the books I had ads going down the right side advertising the books used. Quick purchase, no searching, it was great.
I'd rather see ads that apply to me than ones for Dove soap or something. I always opt in when aps ask to track / share my information, I think it's cool.
I think a lot of us understand the business reasons behind Microsoft's restrictions, but I still don't think it's unreasonable to say that at a base level they kind of suck. Your suggestions would certainly be an improvement, but they can only go so far when Sony are offering an alternative with zero restrictions. Perhaps Microsoft will change their minds on some of this stuff, but they had the chance to make tweaks like this before now and didn't because they want the level of publisher control that the current system allows them.
Sony doesn't have zero restrictions. Even the fine print in their game sharing video specifies the policy is for disc games only. Their digital game's will have DRM.
All of the Xbox One's games are digital, the discs serve only to install. No games are played from the disc on the Xbox One..
Okay sure, the restrictions will be there for digital games, but we're largely if not entirely talking about on-disc games here, and I don't think we can disregard Microsoft's restrictions for games by saying "You can install them so they're technically digital and the two situations are equivalent". When people say "Digital game" that's obviously not what they mean, and the bottom line is that the games on the discs you buy for the One will have fundamental restrictions on them, and the games on the discs you buy for the PS4 won't.
Yeah, because when you buy a disc you're not buying a game on a disc, you're buying an install that will allow you to play the digital game. It's just the way it is. Microsoft is done with disc games, they're just printing discs so people don't have to download stuff, but that's it. No playing from the disc, no game manuals, nothing. Essentially a use it and throw it out item. You won't even need the disc to play at a friend's house, just login to your account and download the game.
