Elite: Dangerous Dumps Offline Single-Player

qeveren Re:I paid for beta access, and it was worth it (473 comments)

Elite: Dangerous Dumps Offline Single-Player

qeveren Re:I paid for beta access, and it was worth it (473 comments)

This 'small detail', unfortunately, leaves a number of backers who were depending on an offline mode - that they understood all this time they were going to get - basically shit-out-of-luck. That's kind of hard to let go.

Anyway, the real reason single-player offline got ditched is because the game is going to include technology to upload real-life advertising into the game world. It's right there in the EULA.

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

qeveren Re:Ahh, but karma (728 comments)

Stop that. You're falling into the Just World fallacy. There is no karma, there is no divine retribution, there's no just desserts. There's only us. What goes around doesn't come around, unless people make it happen.

Ross Ulbricht's Lawyer Says FBI's Hack of Silk Road Was "Criminal"

qeveren Re:Every defendant makes the same claim (208 comments)

Every defendant is also innocent until proven guilty, so of course they're going to defend themselves. Your method is "we've arrested you, therefore you must be guilty and shouldn't bother with a defense."
