Virtual Reality: Purpose Beyond Gaming
Good thing it mentioned the anecdote about the eldery woman twice, otherwise I might have forgotten it. Clearly no one is proof reading these...
The best computer upgrade I've ever done was:
Surely "Graphics Card", an important system component for many gamers (a fair few of whom browse this fine site) would be an upgrade worthy of consideration...?

Given 12 parsecs is almost 10^10 trips around the full circumference of the earth, I would be more amazed that someone had done a grocery run exceeding this distance...
"Cumulative Voting" Method Gaining Attention
Based on actually reading the article it appears in (heresy around these parts I know, but it was linked earlier) I believe that picture specifically refers to case of a corporate election, where one's voting power is determined by how many shares in the company they own.

An Early Look At Next-Gen Shooter Bodycount
Also, reading the sales brief for a previous game (also named Bodycount, funnily enough) one notices a few.. marked similarities:
"OBC also features a near fully destructible environment; the Flame Thrower can set bad guys, scenery and the level itself on fire, which could make movement extremely hazardous for the player, especially as the fire randomly spreads. The Grenade launcher meanwhile can destroy any wall (with some hard coded exceptions)."
Which sounds just like what we have here. Except this game was released in 1994...
"Next Gen" huh?

Is That "Sexting" Pic Illegal? A Scientific Test
So by that logic all people who play violent video games must automatically think that its ok to kill people in real life because we do in the game?
99.9% of people who play these games know they shouldn't kill other people and etc, but do so in the game because there are no consequences. Should we take away all violent video games just because of a 0.1% that might go on a school shooting spree?

Game Designer Makes Case For Used Games
I think it is... one touch login for all your games was one of the major selling features. Whereas your plan would require an unweildly amount of logins.
I think I'll pass on memorising 40 different logins and which games corrosponds to each.
Also.. how does that work with friends? Do you get each and every one of your friends to add all 40 of your accounts? And vice versa?
Game Designer Makes Case For Used Games
In a retail used market, the publisher gains nothing, but pays nothing extra ("lost sales" nonwithstanding)
Whereas with Steam, Valve still has to foot a bandwidth bill.
If Valve took a small commission it might be workable, but I doubt it being seen any time soon - since the disadvantages of used games (potential damage, seller far away, postage, less choice?) evaporate as the entire thing is a download service. So the basically aid the sale of the exact same product as theirs, except they get less money.
This entire thing was discussed endlessly on the Steam Forums, and I think the answer was a resounding no.
