Disgusting. If I hadn’t already written off Blizzard I’d do it now.

This is type of thing is a real possibility with Netease investing in Bungie’s next game. I hope it doesn’t become hard for Bungie and other developers to do the right thing in the future.


I love how capitalism is willing to toe the line for authoritarian communists if there is $$$ at stake


Capitalism isn't a person with a will--but yes, the model can be corrupted just like socialism or communism (this isn't the place to argue which system is more susceptible to corruption).

This is an area where I agree with Cody. If you don't like a business's practices, don't do business with them. I admit I don't always practice what I preach. I'd love to find a competitive alternative to Google Fiber.

At first I was really upset. So many movies and games I could not feel like I could play/ watch or support. But since starting to actually do it I’ve found it’s not that hard at all. And that makes me even more mad because it’s so fucking easy, yet people don’t do it. We could easily stop a great deal of this if we hit them in the wallet.
