Popular Shuttered Torrent Site Demonoid Returns

petteyg359 Obviously not a honeypot (80 comments)

demonoid.ph is running on IPv6. Those MAFIAA guys are technophobes, and we all know they wouldn't touch IPv6 with a ten foot pole.

EA Ending Online Support For Dozens of Games

petteyg359 Re:Lol... (329 comments)

They'd rather sue third parties who try to support it, as has happened to several reverse-engineered servers for games that the publisher stopped supporting.

Autonomous Car Ethics: If a Crash Is Unavoidable, What Does It Hit?

petteyg359 Re:Bad example (800 comments)

By that logic, my failure to donate a kidney means I have murdered approximately 4000 people every year since 1999 who have died on kidney transplant waiting lists. You, sir, need to find some better bullshit to spew.

Why Should Game Stories Make Sense?

petteyg359 Suspension of Disbelief (169 comments)

I couldn't describe to you each individual plot point in a book I read last year. Whether you can remember every little tidbit of dialogue years later isn't important. While I'm playing, though, the plot line is right there in front of me, and all the previous bits and pieces are at the front of my mind. You throw in something that doesn't mesh with the plot in the least bit (i.e. Portal robot spheres in Skyrim, the talking dog in Skyrim, various other easter eggs in other games), that kicks me out of the game, and I don't want to continue playing. That's why keeping the story consistent is important, you dimwit.

Bill Nye To Debate Creationist Museum Founder Ken Ham

petteyg359 Re:Bad call (611 comments)

So your argument is essentially "We can't understand it, therefore it must be just like the thing some ignorant and superstitious guy wrote about in a storybook centuries ago." Try harder, please.

And you've just illustrated the whole point of the quote, by elaborating on how stupidly illogical the idea of a god is.

Bill Nye To Debate Creationist Museum Founder Ken Ham

petteyg359 Re:Bad call (611 comments)

Is he willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is impotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? The whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? -Epicurus If he exists, you have four options: fuck him, fuck him, fuck him, and fuck him. If he doesn't exist, then who gives a fuck.
