    Also, a few weeks ago you guy back gamestop, and now you're essentially backing Bethesda in these ludicrous law suits? What happened to you?

    I will never understand all the slurping of LIVE over PSN or simply playing in a PC. it's PEER TO PEER guys. If you know anything about networking then you know that makes it IMPOSSIBLE for LIVE to have any advantage over any other form of multi-player gaming in that regard because it's ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON THE HOST'S CONNECTION! Until multi-player goes ENTIRELY dedicated server based.

    On top of this they double dip on things you are ALREADY paying for. You have to pay for HBOgo. You have to pay for netflix. So why do you have to pay for LIVE gold to access services you are already paying for?

    They should change it based on the opinion of The United States Patent and Trademark Office.

    "The examining attorney refuses registration under Trademark Act Section 2(d), 15 U.S.C. 1052(d), because the applicant's mark ... so resembles the marks in U.S. Registration Nos. 2634683, 2861127, 3375520, 3421731 and 3584564 (THE ELDER SCROLLS) and 4010219 (SCROLLS) as to be likely to cause confusion, to cause mistake, or to deceive. ... Regarding the THE ELDER SCROLLS marks, the applicant has merely deleted the term ELDER from the registered mark. The mere deletion of wording from a registered mark may not be sufficient to overcome a likelihood of confusion."

    Keep in mind that this denial of the application does not stop Mojang from using the word Scrolls.

    According to the wording of Mojang's patent application they would like to patent the word Scrolls is the following forms of media.

    "Entertainment services in the form of electronic, computer and video games provided by means of the Internet and other remote communications device; internet games (non downloadable); organising of games; games (not downloadable) played via a global computer network; education and entertainment services in the form of cinematographic, televisual, digital and motion picture films, radio and television programs and shows; preparation, editing and production of cinematographic, televisual, digital and motion picture films, radio and television programs; entertainment services in the form of electronic, computer and video games provided by means of the Internet, mobile telephone and other remote communications device."

    What that basically says is that they would own the word Scrolls in almost all forms of media.

    Why that is important to Bethesda is that the intend to use that very word in one of the biggest games of the year. If Mojang obtained this patent it would open up Bethesda to lawsuit. This is what Bethesda is attempting to protect themselves and their Intellectual Properties from. While Mojang may have honorable intentions with their patent application Bethesda can not allow the precedent to be established or it could be abused by other less scrupulous entities at a later time.

    I am a huge fan of both of these companies and I really hope they come to a mutually beneficial agreement but Mojang has no legal basis to continue with its action.

    I hope this explains some of why the Scud Missile Fly Swatter came about.

    I really wish Adam would be less of a corporate stooge sometimes... I mean, they marketed and named their game "Scrolls", why should they change their name because Bethesda demands so, based on what exactly o.O?

    As for "Goliath always winning"... really? Somehow I think the message he is trying to convey in a lot of those episodes when it comes to Corporation vs. Customers or Bigger Corporation vs. Smaller Corporation or even Corporation vs. Consumer Rights etc. is always that you are supposed to lie down and take it and that they somehow *deserve* the money that people are giving them... it always makes him seem like a giant dick to me.

    Are you guys at all worried about some kind of let down from some of the blockbuster titles coming up in the next ew months (Skyrim, Revelations, etc) but specifically Mass Effect 3 especially after learning the news that they are adding Co-Op to ME3? Are developers just running out of idea and looking for something eles to tack onto the game or are they just looking for one more way to imporove what is already such an amazing franchise?

    So... People that didn't buy Rage should hold out for the complete experience when the GotY edition releases with all the DLC that was supposed to be in the game originally?

    Man... I hope ID Software learns from their mistakes with Rage so we get a complete and well done experience with Doom 4.

    Whats with the hate for New Vegas? I thought was horrible at first and i hated it due to all the bugs, but I went back after they patched it and i ended up loving it and thought it was better than 3. I really appreciated the deeper rpg mechanics like the faction armor, weapon mods, the faction reputations, hardcore mode, and the much better companion system. I didn't know Fallout 3 even had companions till someone told me. Don't get me wrong, 3 was awesome and by far had the more interesting location, but I think New Vegas, while not a full sequel, was better in most ways.

    Oh snap! New intro & graphics! Love it!
    Now all y'all need is a longer sound track, or just a slightly longer intro (with a much catchier tune). =D
