Why Android Is the New Windows

SupremoMan Re:mobile platform (424 comments)

Sort of like developing for the PC, right? I know, we should all move to vendor-locked consoles.

I was planning on posting something similar to this. I totally agree with this point. If you can run the same OS on the desktop with millions of hardware configurations, why is doing the same thing on a smartphone all of a sudden an issue?

Stargate Universe Cancelled

SupremoMan Re:Yay. more money for mansquito II! (762 comments)

Eureka? Sanctuary? Those two are decent. The of course they have scare tactics, which I don't like, and ghost hunters, which I loathe.

Anonymous Now Attacking Corporate Fax Machines

SupremoMan Not a new tactic (410 comments)

They used the same thing against Church of Scientology. Basically they fax you a black sheet of paper so you run out of toner printing them.

Has Progress Been Made In Fighting DDoS Attacks?

SupremoMan Re:This reminds me of WW 1 (206 comments)

One sided wars are better than evenly matched wars by far. Better in terms of casualties anyway. Though if your goal is population control, evenly matched conflict will thin the herd quite a bit.

Humans Will Need Two Earths By 2030

SupremoMan Re:We will only need 0.2 Earths by 2030 (738 comments)

Parent is accurate. The ensuing wars from USA's demise would severely deplete Human populations across the globe. Think how fast China would invade Taiwan. And Mongolia for that matter. How quickly would North Korea roll South. WWRD? What Would Russia Do? Say bye bye to Georgia, that's for sure. Venezuela invading Columbia? No that would never happen... Iran invading Iraq... I wonder. And these are just off the top of my head.

StarCraft AI Competition Results

SupremoMan Re:Not equal (113 comments)

Yes this is definitely the best feature of original SC! I loved how the team of players could also choose different races. And you started with the command structure of player #1 (Human CC for example), but you got your own drone or probe as a starting worker to build a Nexus or Hatchery later!

Personally I love coop in a RTS! Another game that had this feature was Conquest: Frontier Wars. Excellent game too. I recall one match where we had 3 players vs 2 players, with each side controlling only one empire. It seemed that the side with 3, which I was on, came out on top BY A LOT. It really makes a lot of difference if you can keep track and micro more of your empire.

Video games do not need to be integrated with Zuckerberg's privacy dream.

I think you were typing too fast. Had to fix it for you... unless you meant the nightmare is yours and you happen to share a last name with a douche-bag :)

SupremoMan Re:Good! Disabled it. (145 comments)

Why the hell would you use the same Bnet account for two games? What if you no longer want one and wish to give it to a friend, or god forbid sell it? I guess people lack more than one email account :(

Android Software Piracy Rampant

SupremoMan Re:Is revenue still increasing? (510 comments)

I agree. As a matter of fact knowing the piracy rate is nothing but a headache. You are better off just knowing how many people bought the app and ignoring the rest.
