Yeah I have no idea wtf is happening at this point. I liked last season a lot. The blonde chick is still super hot though.

Now of course there certainly *could* be an argument made that I should be able to Trademark anything, offensive or not, so long as I met the other requirements. I can get on that side of the argument. But that's not how it works.

I have trouble understanding why someone who constantly rails against a government he feels shows undue favoritism to the rich and powerful would be up in arms over a minority successfully pleading their case in front of that same government...and winning their case.   icon_confused

Fair question.  They have removed the ability of a company to profit from its trademark and basically opened the floodgates for anyone to do anything with that logo.  Doesn't seem like it's a power they should use...unless, you know, it was to make cancer medicine free. Maybe Snyder's lobbying group isn't big enough or in enough pockets.



Some points of clarification:

1) Snyder can certainly still profit from the name. It's just that no longer protected, which means other can as well.

2) And the US Patent Office has routinely rejected Trademarks that they deem offensive. It's part of the vetting process when you apply.

3) It's not like the Patent Office went and did this on their own. A group (of Native Americans) filed for a review on the grounds that it never should have been granted. I'm really not sure what the the Office could do here... say 'nope sorry, not offensive'? It obviously is and they missed it the first time around.

The problem I have with this is that government stepped in and voided a legally granted trademark because it was 'offensive.'



This.

The BET Channel is racist, and offends me. There is no WET Channel, so why are the rules different?

Is there a bigoted slur or profanity in the name BET? If so, you could complain that it should not be granted a trademark. Otherwise, the comparison falls flat.

There is no White Entertainment Channel......or any other race-only-in-name channel that i'm aware of. Why is a minority allowed to break their own moral-rule?

Just the fact that there is no WET Channel proves that therwe should be no BET, if we're gonna play by the PC-crowd, racism rules.

There could certainly be a WET from a legal/government standpoint. No laws against it. It's just such a confoundingly stupid idea that no one has done it.
It's awful marketing and PR.

By the way there are # of asian specific channels with either Asia or specific countries referenced in the name. It's not just BET.

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

Are you buying games for the PC instead?  We just saw the release of Wolfenstein (fantastic), Watchdogs, and Transistor.
This years a bit of a mess with all the delays, but there's still a bunch of stuff coming out this fall.  Destiny being probably the biggest name of the bunch.

Nope. Not really interested in Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs didn't pass the review muster for me. I don't even know what Transistor is. Part of it is that I figure those titles will be cheap/free on PSN+ next year so I haven't pulled the trigger on them.

Destiny I am very interested in.

Basically if it's not an AAA title (or specific sports game I want), I can't be bothered anymore. Priorities change with age, I guess.
I guess your decisions are your own and that's all well and good, but don't bitch that there aren't any games, that's three good to fantastic games that have come out in the past two weeks. 

I will bitch about what I want, when I want. DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?

Sadly, this is where I line up now too. And it seems a lot of AAA are not passing muster anymore (Titanfall, Watch dogs...). Getting slow out there.

Agreed. After getting burned a bit on Titanfall I took the wait and see approach with Watch Dogs and am pretty glad I did.

I do love the digital purchase option now though because it eliminates any need to preorder.

Double rift fragments and double legendary chances this weekend

I heard they made this bonus a permanent change.

My impression was that "only" the legendary drop chance would be retained, not the rest of it.

Based on my experience, I'd guess that only the Blackthorns set has had it's drop rate raised....  Roll Eyes

LOL.

Legendary rate is definitely upped/same as it was during the anniversary or whatever.

Blood Shards are back to normal but who cares because FFFUUUUUUU Kadala.

They are all basically the same. Some software is slightly better than others, but not by a lot. I'm using Skydrive right now for photo backup (er sorry, OneDrive) solely because it has the most space available to me. I have accounts with all of the others. Dropbox is the one most commonly used for my portable docs, but thats only because it was the one I used first.

I would hate to try and navigate the xbone without kinect. There are things I thought you can't even get to with the controller (probably not, but it seemed that way).

I generally get along fine without it. It'd probably be better if I remembered how the Xbox wants me to say things and did that, but generally since I can't the controller works better than me going "Xbox... uhhh... fuck I don't remember"

Yeah quick counts really, really make the game. However one thing needs to be mentioned that is nearly a game killer: the load times on the PS4 version at least are absolutely atrocious. I can't believe someone thought this was good enough to ship.

Judging this games potential quality from one title for a long time developer like Insomniac is rather unfair.

When it was their most recent title and it was so, so bad - I think it's a fair worry.

1.70 is now available, and the hunt for hidden changes begins. People are reporting vastly improved response times in the UI, and particularly in the PS Store.

Pre-loading games is big, so is being able to control the brightness on the controller LED. I don't care about all the new steaming and video recording stuff... what portion of PS4 users does that even affect, less than 5%?

It indirectly affects everyone. Any time you watch someone stream a PS4-game on Twitch or put up PS4 videos on YouTube (unless they've got their own capture card), you'll benefit from these updates. Since the streams are now shown in the activity view, they're also becoming a more prominent part of the console.

I mean I don't do any of those things, so *everyone* is a bit of a stretch.
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When do you buy games? on: April 30, 2014, 05:25:45 PM
Games I really want I'll preorder (previously for release day shipping on Amazon Prime, but now just digital on PS4 or X1). Sometimes there's a game that I'll buy shortly after release after positive buzz.

Otherwise the game is either never purchased or purchased for a steep, steep discount on a Steam sale on PC.

The ban was an internal business decision by the NBA to not have a known, outspoken racist as a key representative their brand.  I can't bring myself to get too worked up over that.

Totally agree.  This really isn't any different than Marge Schott in mid to late 90's.     Baseball banned her from day to day operations and she sold the team a year or two later. Some of her statements were public and not made in private.  In the end it doesn't matter where they were made as soon as they are out in the open it reflects poorly on the NBA as a whole.  They had no choice but make an example out of him. Given his history, I cant believe too many people are surprised that he is a racist. 

Samesies. Just like the Mozilla Prop 8 CEO. Turns out being a bigot or racist is bad for you if discovered. Who knew?

Also, she did not join LucasArts immediately, there was at least a month between leaving NaughtyDog and joining Lucas.  That's plenty of time for a high profile person to have talked with multiple studios and get the offer then.

Don't have a ton of opinion on any other things on this topic, but I've generally taken at least a month between jobs even when I have an offer signed. Time off is nice, yo. Don't read into that gap at all.

Effectively worthless. Didn't notice them really.

I wouldn't say totally worthless, but they are not nearly as good or as useful as I was hoping.  Maybe it's because I run with stability and traction control?  It looks like most of my friends list does as well, so I assumed that wasn't a "dumb noob" thing to do.

I think I run with those things off (or did when I played), so I don't think that's it.
