    I just always get a lot more damage done with one powerful hit than a whole clip of peashooter rounds.

    I don't really see the resemblance between the Ritchie and the Nerf Maverick.

    The Ritchie sure is fun though! Too bad I am terrible with it!

    No, I'm serious. The Ritchie is based on a real gun, it looks like a silhouette revolver. The Nerf Maverick has the cylinder out in front, and has the slide from a Colt 1911 between the hammer and cylinder.

    Those two guns are both pistols.

    I was reading a new comic book-- Robotika: For a Few Rubles More, and one of the characters pulled a Nerf Maverick. I didn't know if I should smile or roll my eyes, so I did both.

    yeah but the free shit they're giving away is directly related to the problem they got hit with

    they got fucked by a third party that wanted to steal people's identities and in return for the "inconvenience" they "caused" by refusing to bring back the PSN until they were sure it was secure, and now they're handing out free identity theft protection to the people that someone else endangered

    I don't understand the hate for Sony over this; they got hit with a malicious attack and they did what they could to mitigate its effects. Now that everyone thinks that something someone else did is their fault, they're handing out free identity theft protection at a probable cost of millions of dollars.

    I think that is pretty cool of them.

    I thought they weren't providing the legally required level of protection for the personal information they had

    so in that case it wouldn't so much be "we got fucked up and you shouldn't have to suffer for it, here's some free stuff" as "we were negligent and it cost us, have some free stuff and try to forget about it"

    What they're offering is an excellent step in the right direction. It doesn't right any wrongs however, and it doesn't go far enough. So one year of protection, then when it lapses you're vulnerable again? Whoever got the customer data will likely hold onto it for at least that long.

    Just glad I didn't put any of my info into the PSN.

    "negligent" is an extremely strong word for what they did

    their protection was not airtight and something got through, as is almost inevitable for a service with such a large subscription base

    big fucking deal

    are we seriously putting the blame for a malicious attack on their services on Sony?

    that sounds ridiculous to me

    their late disclosure on whether credit cards were compromised was the worst thing they did, but they gave all their customers a heads up that it was possible and people who believed their card numbers were compromised had ample opportunity to correct the problem by simply changing them and notifying their banks of their exposure. (what I did) It cost customers fifteen minutes of extra trouble beyond the service being down, (like anyone would have wanted to use it while it was still a risk exposure) and they're being repaid with a year's worth of identity protection that would normally cost them a hell of a lot more than the money they've put into the PSN store. I mean, I've given them like twenty bucks through the store, pennies on the dollar of which they kept for themselves, and now they're handing me a service that normally costs $120/year

    I don't care who you are, that is a

    good

    fucking

    deal

    props are due to Sony on this one

    I think there might be too much information about the PSN Incursion now, apparently there’s something going on with SOE now, and there was a press conference or something. At this point, I already shredded the card; they can’t really get my goat, as the goat has been obliterated. Unless another shoe drops in the form of a comma delimited file full of plaintext credit cards or something, it may be over as a news concern. I want to give you a heads up, though, for the next round of Sony defense material which is typically indistinguishable from what they’d buy from a PR company.

    - On the collapse of the Playstation Network:

    “I’m a PS+ subscriber, and I don’t even care about this. I’m too busy enjoying the richness of this incredible, exclusive single player content.”

    - On the revelation that the Playstation Network had been cracked open and the guts slurrrrrped out of it:

    “What. The. Fuck.! Just move to a new city, cancel your credit cards, and then form new social bonds, beginning life anew in a faraway land!!! This is a gift.”

    - On the discovery that the intrusion has resulted in the dissemination of an infectious Hrungnir neocyte:

    “All you people who wont submit to the mindpulse are f’ing morons. It’s like one parasite and you guys are talking about it like it’s some big thing or like “oh i don’t want to be a subjugant.” FFS, you guys. Just quaff the fucking Dominus Flask. Yield to Her. Yield, and be whole.”

    People aren't blaming Sony for being attacked. People are blaming Sony for having ridiculously sensitive information, like credit card numbers, unsecured, for blaming everyone but themselves, for remaining uncommunicative about the issue, and for being completely surprised that anyone would want to attack them.

    Spoiler:

    The UAV thing is worrisome, I can see problems with it being used in ways SD hasn't planned.

    It will be hard for the new outfits to top the one already in the game. Each faction has so many good choices. Good good, and goofy good both. Trashed skinny jeans for the Resistance and Han Solo pants for Sec are two examples.

    they did not handle it phenomenally

    but I'm unsure of what people wanted them to do differently aside from notifying people earlier and more fully, which I think is the big problem they are now compensating for

    but it is an incredibly rich, incredible, exclusive deal and I don't see how people actually think they've been short changed

    your free service went out for a few weeks because continued operation would have been dangerous to your privacy and your account, and now people are still pissed when they offer another free service that obviates the danger posed by someone else's malicious attack on their services

    that is just insane to me

    yes, they could have implemented more secure procedures that might or might not have prevented this breach

    no, they could not do anything to solve this problem in a way that would protect their customers in a better way

    I think they deserve props for that.

    Tactical scanner would be neat for operatives. It would be a good information thing to distinguish operatives from everyone else. Ah well, I guess we will wait and see.

    The Carb-9 currently has more power when suppressed than the other SMGs do unsuppressed!

    I am terrible with the Ritchie, even if I put a muzzle brake on it. I'm awful with the shotgun too. :(

    I see very few reasons to play as a medium. SMGs are better than assault rifles in most situations on most maps. The under-slung grenade launcher is fun, but it isn't necessary. The only thing I really miss is the Lobster. I can do some serious damage with that thing.

    I think I found something. If you select the Lost jacket, and then select the green sort of digi-camo, turn your guy around and look at his back. There is sort of a tri-force shape on the lower back, and a skull up near the neck. It is kind of an ink blot is it or isn't sort of thing.

    I know I keep linking these videos but this does a good job of explaining why people are so mad at sony right now

    and in more on-topic news I kind of stopped playing this game a few weeks ago though I'll probably give it another shot when the DLC drops

    it's just frustrating how little time I actually spent on my feet compared to lying down or waiting to respawn

    I know someone's just going to respond to this with something like "suck less" but seriously there is almost no survivability to the players in this game

    someone in a tf2 server asked me to describe brink to them the other day and the best answer I could come up with was "the last point of dustbowl, except all the time, forever"

    It takes a while to acclimate yourself to the game. Soldiers die a lot. Hell, everyone dies a lot.

    The important thing is to keep moving. And using either the Carb9 or the Kross, as of right now. A Light with a Carb9 or Kross with a drum mag and grip is basically a turret than can wall-jump. And throw grenades.

    The Brink stats site is up.

    Some of the stats are off, but things seem to be getting more in line. My accuracy is terrible!

    Christ, DocDino, do not encourage a person to be an Onanist Medic, good grief! I've died so many times, so close to completing the objective. I just needed a shot of the good stuff, man! And the medic was off somewhere in a corner buffing himself.
