Microsoft Kills Xbox One Phone-Home DRM

Mystery00 They listened to Sony (547 comments)

It wasn't "the people" they listened to, it was the sounds of Sony destroying them at E3.

Eric Schmidt: Teens' Mistakes Will Never Go Away

Mystery00 Re:What's worse (335 comments)

Actually it won't be long from now that the young adults that were the first Facebook users become bosses themselves, or are already (average Facebook age is ~30). It's possible those new bosses won't care about the dumb stuff kids do on the internet just as they wouldn't want their own dumb internet shenanigans to effect their own careers.

I think bosses that grew up on the internet are more forgiving of a lot of things.

Blender 2.66 Released

Mystery00 Re:Usability (158 comments)

Saying 's is not "discoverable" is the same as saying a jet plane's cockpit controls aren't "discoverable". This is a tool for PROFESSIONALS, the only thing they care about is speed, efficiency (time is money) and functionality. If it takes an hour to learn something but then takes 5 minutes to DO something, that is better for a professional than being able to learn something in 5 minutes but then take an hour to actually do your work.

People complaining about Blender's UI are usually kids who jump on the "bad UI" bandwagon because they can't figure out how to make the next Pixar movie in half an hour.

The UI of Blender is very well thought out, for the people that actually use it, and those people are more important than the ones that are still figuring it out. If you want to "discover" how to use it, read the manual, tutorials and learn how 3D production works.

Blender 2.66 Released

Mystery00 Re:Usability (158 comments)

So tired of these comments, the UI in Blender is some of the BEST and FASTEST most EFFICIENT there is.

If you want an example of how NOT to design a UI look no further than 3Ds Max.

Blender Debuts Fourth Open Source Movie: Tears of Steel

Mystery00 Re:It still has a long way ahead (126 comments)

You sir, are full of it; first of all shadows/HDR issues (if there are any, this could just be stylised) have absolutely zero to do with Blender itself but with the renderer they were using. Second of all Blender being hard to use is a detestable myth and even between the people that think that way it's still universally accepted that once you learn the workflow Blender is one the most efficient and fast, if not the fastest, programs on the market to work with.

Colour me unimpressed by your erroneous arguments.

Ubisoft Claims PC Piracy Rate of 93-95%

Mystery00 Ubisoft used to be cool (464 comments)

There was a time when I looked forward to their games, but now there's more DRM than game and they haven't brought anything worth playing out in the last few years.

But nah that wouldn't have anything to do with them complaining about piracy, surely not.

Some Players Want Day-1 DLC, Says BioWare

Mystery00 Here's my opinion internet (357 comments)

All I can say is:

I liked Mass Effect 1 quite a bit.

I completely loved Mass Effect 2, one of the best games I've ever played.

I am not getting Mass Effect 3.

The ball is in your court BioWare.

James Murdoch's Defense Crumbles

Mystery00 Get the hell off this planet (272 comments)

Any species that has gained intelligence should be striving to get off the rock they're on and off into space as fast as possible, all our eggs are in one basket right now. You don't know what's going to happen, a meteor, a world-wide disaster, world war 3, invading aliens, super viruses, there's a huge amount of things that could wipe us out at any given moment.

The longer we stay in one place the more chances there are we won't live long enough to get into space at all.

Carmack Addresses FPS Creativity Concerns

Mystery00 Re:Ugh (280 comments)

And the team used Valve's Half-Life universe to expand in. Are you suggesting Valve steal their idea and do it themselves instead of adding people that can come up with good ideas to their team? It's not about Narbacular Drop, it's about the people that made it.

Correction: Narbacular Drop came out of Digipen. Portal came out of Valve.

Just one of Valve's "creative" games brings in more money than all your unimaginative games put together.
