David89 Strictly DRM (208 comments)

There was plenty of proof that the Always Online was purely a form of DRM not necessary for the gaming aspect of the product.

Gamer Keeps Civilization II Game Going for 10 Years

David89 1984 (219 comments)

This reminds me of 1984 actually, right down to there being three superpowers left in the world. For those who haven't read it, perpetual war is fought over border zones that constantly change hands, with each power too strong to ever be defeated.

Comparing Today's Computers To 1995's

David89 Re:What about games? Consoles... (461 comments)

We are victims of the console gaming age.. Most computer games are being held back because of this (game developing studios won't write 2 separate versions, one for consoles and one for computers). Notice how a 2 year old graphics card is able to play recently released games? Remember when you had to buy a graphics card every six months in order to keep up with the latest game releases?

DC Comics Prevails In Batmobile Copyright Dispute

David89 From their forum (115 comments)

Batrodz llc. now has confirmation that we are US Patent pending on our hand sculpted '66 Gotham Roadster design. The hardest part is getting the application accepted. We have crossed that bridge, and our patent is pending approval. Thanks to good friends with powerful lawyers, They got my application, declaration, design illustrations, and filing fees accepted by the us patent & trademark office. We were also able to get a unique design trademark classification code 12 (vehicles) that certificate has been issued to Batrodz llc. Some people need to realize, don't mess with the bull, or you'll get the horns.

Anonymous Takes Down DOJ, RIAA, MPA and Universal Music

David89 As time goes by it all seems like a plot (649 comments)

How are these attacks going to help our cause? The more I read about this the more I believe it's all a cover up by the government or some other pro SOPA force. Makes it seem like these bills really need to get passed.
