  • FCC killed net neutrality. What does it mean for gamers?

    Considering that this only reverts to the rules as they were in early 2015, freaking out only makes sense if you thought the Internet was some dystopian wasteland in 2014 and has gotten massively better since then.

    Either the sky will fall or else it won't.  Most likely, returning to the light-touch regulatory regime that facilitated the rise of the Internet over the course of nearly 20 years preceding the FCC's arbitrary switch to Title II regulations in 2015 will similarly help facilitate future Internet improvements that we don't foresee today.

    But it's also possible that ISPs will commonly roll out abusive and predatory business practices and block legitimate sites that they don't like or some such.  If that happens, then the view that heavier regulation of the Internet is necessary will become prevalent all across the political spectrum rather than the Internet being just another domain in with the left wants more regulation and the right wants fewer.  In that case, heavier regulations will come, hopefully in the form of Congress passing a bill properly authorizing heavier regulations.

    And don't think that Congress is incapable of acting when there's overwhelming public support for an issue.  It's hard to pass laws when half of the public is in favor and half against, and that's by design, but it's much easier to pass laws when there is broad popular support and few people opposed.  For example, consider the CAN-SPAM act of 2003, which passed the Senate unanimously and the House by a vote of 392-5.
    A voice of reason as always! Cheers! <3 Edit: More competition = better product + cheaper services.

  • So, Where Are YOU on Net Neutrality?

    Not enough unbiased data to really make up my mind.

    Sifting through Steam,i just noticed this game but it doesn't look all that good to be honest.

    I played one of the original stealth mode games "The Jagged Alliance series" and i think i would rather play the almost 20 year old Jagged Alliance over this.

    I decided to buy the new World of FF,i hardly ever go wrong with FF games.


    You actually PURCHASED a game? Please do share how it feels!
