It seems that the LGBT community seems to be welcome by the Pope. This has to be the first time something like that has been done at least to my knowledge

Religion is one of biggest ball of chains around the human race´s leg and this catholic pope just proved it again.

but good for him that he is trying so hard.

"ball of chains"

What?

What are you in doubt about?

What do you mean by saying that religion is a "ball of chains"?

Yep as the one above said. I mean that religion is what holds humans back.

Just look at the middle east, before islam came around it was the place for enlightenment, inventions, progress and now its a war-torn place where one religious tribe wars on another. Religion is the cause of so much backward thinking that its amazing people actually believe it.

I see, like ball and chain.

Yep indeed.

Oh my god. I haven't seen Gamespot give a 10 out of 10 to any game in a long time. The last time I've seen it, it was for Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the Nintendo Wii.

Wow. Any thoughts on this gang?

My thoughts are as i said in the other thread "fishy" the gamespot crew clearly has a huge love for Nintendo and i think its more nostalgic then actually being because Nintendo just happen to make 10/10 games.

Look back at most of the games that has gotten a 10 also what game got GOTY 2013 its all Nintendo so i cant help but wonder how much they get paid or how much nostalgic plays a role.

The show premiered already? I recall someone making a topic about a batman universe show that has no batman a few months ago and I remember thinking how dumb that destined to turn out to be.

Here in the States episode 4 played tonight. Recorded it and will watch it in the morning.

The show is solid. It could definitely be done better, but the premise is just so good that it is VERY hard to screw up. People who are familiar with the Batman universe realize how interesting James Gordon's story is (Batman: Year One had a HUGE focus on his story). I would actually argue he is a more interesting character than Batman. The whole idea of some badass green beret joining a police force that is corrupt to the core and single-handedly cleaning it up is just epic.

I will say TC that the 2nd and 3rd episodes were even better then the pilot. They start developing the Penguin a bit (they are really doing their best to make him an interesting character) and also give young Catwoman more screen time and it turns out the young actress playing her is PERFECT for the role.

I will agree though that Jada sucks and I hate her character. My only solace is that I am fairly certain she will die in the season...

I agree that the show is solid and i like that its without Batman , Jim Gordon´s story is one that has been overlooked for to long and i like how they are trying to build the relationship between Gordon and the young wayne before he becomes batman, it actually fits well with how they are later on.

In regards to Jada well its kinda obvious that she will die, penguin will take over her turf is pretty much written in stone and not to mention penguin of course wants payback.

One character i don't like tho is Catgirl, might be the actor but the whole tomboy routine is getting old

So what do you guys think of this years Nobel peace prize winners? I am personally glad that they didn't choose someone bad on my behalf and the rest of the norwegian people.

Giving Obama the peace prize was a joke looking at it now. So hopefully we won't make that mistake like that again

I think the Nobel peace prize is as prestigious as a year old fish long forgotten on the back shelf.particular after giving it to Obama before he even did something and which they proved again by giving a 15year old girl who have done absolute nothing other than being the unfortunate victim of a sick crime.

@Jacanuk:

Few things:

(1) I actually read through a whole bunch of my EULAs a couple of years ago, and they mostly said the same thing. Even GOG, which is hailed as the champion of DRM-free digital distribution, had basically the same clauses as Steam.

(2) Keep in mind that we're talking about intangibles here. When you buy a game at a store, you own the disc, box and manual. You don't really "own" the intangible material contained on that disc though - it's licensed to you via EULAs and whatnot. All of those that I've seen restrict your usage of that software in some way - and one of the common ways is to include a clause saying that they retain the right to revoke your access to that software.

Please note that Valve don't own most of the stuff on Steam either. They'll have distribution rights, sure, but the game publishers are typically the main rights holders here.

(3) Whether consumer laws will help anything is...uncertain. Up in the air. Local consumer laws may require Valvr to act in certain ways through the provision of their services. That might stick. But applying other consumer laws to digital goods that you only have limited rights to under contract? It's trickier, will depend heavily on local laws, and...well, who knows.

(...and no, I'm not a lawyer, this isn't legal advice. I have a law degree, sure, but I'm not actually qualified to give advice, and all of this is off-ths-cuff informed guesswork anyway!)

You have a law degree , which one?

But again i suggest you and Wiouds go read up on the EU Oracle case which actually opposite to the US supreme court found that once you buy "software" you own it and by such have all the rights that follows. That is what made Steam change their TOS to be subscription based

The key though is that you of course own the rights to all the games or any software you have bought, that was put 100% clear by the eu court.

So the only thing steam can do is bar you from their service and use of the steam platform they cannot since they do not own or have rights to any games but their own, bar you from continuing to use the games you have bought.

Value have ful control over all the games you lease from them do not encourage them be any worse.

Actually no they dont. All they have control over is your access to using steam as a platform, which is what the EULA also states. It would actually be quite illegal for steam to claim ownership over the games you have bought since they do not own them or have any rights to them.

No, you did not buy anything. You paid for the right to play the game. They have the right to give those rights out. If they or those thatown the rights want to they can revoke your rights to use that software.

You are 100% wrong in that assumption. You pay for the right to use Steam, Steam has no ownership or legal rights to any other game than their own.

What they do have the right to do is remove your right to use Steam nothing else, you still own the game.

But do please show your legal expertise and not just something you heard on the interwb, i mean its not like we have laws right?

I am guessing you have the same amount of legal expertise and just want to think that the law skew your way.

Then you are guessing about as accurate as your statement about steam. But do please point to that law or place in the steam user agreement that states they own the games and you do not.

Also claiming something is true without having any legal education is just bad Wiouds, you are claiming something that is utter false and is just a myth that is made up by people who dislike steam for one reason or the other. Steam again is just a distribution platform, they do not own the games, if you buy a paradox game or a ubisoft game, you buy a paradox or a ubisoft game, you do not suddenly buy a steam game. Steam is nothing but a shop, so they have the right to deny you the right to use their service but they don't remove the ownership of the games you bought.

And a good advice go read up on the oracle case in EU court, where EU luckily isn't political like the us supreme court and actually recognizes the ownership when you buy software and the rights following that, like reselling it.
