Microsoft Confirms Xbox One's Phone Home Requirement, Game Resale Rules

trooper9 ...and people will buy it anyway. (581 comments)

They will buy them as fast as Microsoft can make them. No matter what Microsoft does, people will buy it. Look at Win8 for proof -- it's not selling well, but it's still selling. And both the XBox One and Win8 will be the only game in Microsoft Town soon enough.

Interview With Icculus on GNU/Linux Gaming

trooper9 Re:And the Linux naming experts strike again (74 comments)

It's all fine and dandy unless you want to add something fundamental and then a million angry server monkeys appear and throw poo. Unless the culture changes Linux will forever be relegated to server and appliance roles.

Beyond funny and spot on. Wish I had mod points.

Ask Slashdot: Is It Time For SyFy To Go Premium?

trooper9 Re:Probably Not (607 comments)

I've got a few more than 3 or 4 shows I like to watch, but I agree with the rest. I have no idea when the shows I watch are actually on, but all that is completely overshadowed by the pleasure of sitting down to find a new episode of Warehouse 13, Eureka, Haven, Good Eats, etc. sitting on the DVR.

Moodle 1.9 For Second Language Teaching

trooper9 Re:Moodle lacks innovation. (50 comments)

What would you recommend to replace it? Seriously, my company uses Moodle for our CE needs and I've about had it with it. There hasn't been singular event to make me feel this way. It's been more of a "death by a thousand cuts" type of affair. But the price is right...

Inertial Mass Separate From Gravitational Mass?

trooper9 Re:Sure, here you go (405 comments)

On his page it says something about "Longer-Duration Microgravity Environments produced by GCCs". I told all of you gcc sucks, even if it is just a little bit.

Nintendo and the Decline of Hardcore Gaming

trooper9 Re:And what exactly IS hardcore? (438 comments)

Hehe. That exact same thing happened to me.

I got so mad I tossed the wheel and had to go for a walk (it *does* fly well). Now when I crank up MK my kids come pat me on the shoulder and tell me "don't get mad, it's going to be OK". It's incredible that a game can get you that upset.

I hate blue shells.
