Anti-Social behaviour Part 2: Griefing (game)

Anti-Social behaviour Part 2: Griefing (game).

In Daytona, they drive against the traffic.
In Dota, they leave their characters alone, doing nothing.
In Gunbound, they leave their characters alone, doing nothing.

These are griefers.  People who annoy others in online gaming for the satisfying their own kicks, and not for personal gain.

Here's a video example.  In no way do I condone griefing.

 edit: I have no idea where Part 1 is...

Starcraft II pricing

Starcraft II pricing.
Starcraft 2 only costs $59.99 USD.
So why is IAH charging $109 SGD for Singapore?

Blizzard jacked up the price to approximately $84 SGD.  IAH padded on another $25 SGD for packing and shipping.  Talk about inflation!

The demise of CGW

The demise of CGW.
Joran: So that's what happened.

Joran: Computer Gaming World.  One of the most influential PC gaming magazines, as well as the most expensive.  I had been a supporter since around '95 till its demise at '08. 

The printed media had been threatened by the Internet for some time.  One, the Net offers reviews in 2 weeks, compared to 3 months by a magazine.  Two, the quality of the reviews on the Net can rival those from the magazines. However, there is a certain draw to getting my information from the printed page, much like I prefer to do my travel research from guide books.  Certainly, the Tom vs Bruce column helped substained my interests.

Here's a belated cheers to CGW.  Long live your memory.

Law Firm Asks Alleged File-Sharers To Incriminate Themselves

Law Firm Asks Alleged File-Sharers To Incriminate Themselves.
Written by enigmax on May 26, 2010

Lawyers ACS:Law in the UK are now into their second year of threatening alleged pirates with legal action. Since they don’t have a good case when people deny their allegations, for some time now the firm has been sending out questionnaires which allow people to build a case against themselves. As a UK consumer magazine is pointing out, people don’t have to play this game.
