the equivalent of taking a thief to the public square and chopping off his hands, screaming "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO THIEVES," as a warning to others.

I think you're doing it right. The people at the tops of these industries are dinosaurs who need to make access to their content easier. Otherwise, it's just going to get stolen. I have a Hulu+ account and a Netflix account. If I can't find what I'm looking for, I'm going the free way.
but let's call it what it is.

Not to be anal, but if you want to call it what it is, the term is pirating. The term has a rather different meaning than stealing.
Stealing implies robbing something leaving none to who had it, while pirating means creating a perfect duplicate.

KotOR2 ? That runs on Win7, right?

It's hard to not see a correlation between all this

So anyhows...

Why no one's complained about the artwork is bothering me.  Kid does not look nor sound like a girl "worth fighting for".

Whaaaaaaaa ??? Of course she is. Without her, I have to keep Fargo in the party to steal shit off bosses.
Do YOU think Fargo is sexy? Huh! DO YOU? I sure don't.

I checked it out. It's pretty good. My only worry is how long it'll take before they do any pirating. At episode 3 they seem still very far from it.

Rinne no Lagrange
My personal pick for the show with the most potential this season (then again, I like mech shows).

Nisemonogatari
Awesome... but that's kinda normal. If you liked Bakemonogatari, be sure to watch it. This is one of the few show with intelligent dialogues.

Ano Natsu de Matteru
According to the synopsis, this is a show about students who want to film a movie... BUT THEN there's a giant 'WTF that wasn't in the synopsis at all and it kind of changes the story by a whole damn lot' moment right in episode one. Needless to say, that got me interested.

Amagami SS Plus
Amagami stuff, watch if you like Amagami.

Zero no Tsukaima Final
Pretty so-so up to now. Hoping for more kickass in the future.

Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai
Supposedly, this is based on a very good light novel. The problem is, the anime version seems to suffer from "I am twelve and these are my panties! KYAAA" syndrome. Story is pretty good from what's been shown... but I am so afraid that this show might fall into loli fanservice.

High School DxD
Supposedly also from a light novel. This show is about demon high school students. Tits were shown in episode one and I'm sure plenty more will be seen in the future. Watch it if you like harem, tits and lolis

Inu X Boku Secret Service
I kinda liked this one. It's a light comedy. Not the funniest thing ever, but it's a relaxing show.
2287  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: DO you Get 100% in every Rpg? on: January 21, 2012, 10:31:30 AM
I used to 100% every game... but then at one point I just couldn't anymore.
I guess I just hit a point where I've grinded so much I can't do it anymore. I have several games I keep near just so maybe I'll grind and do some boss humiliation... but I haven't touched those in a long time.
I think I blame WoW for over-saturating me with grind.
2288  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: January 21, 2012, 09:55:15 AM
Ok, this is hilarious.
Senki Zesshou Symphogear episode 3
The anime has rather fluid action scenes and good enough animation, but then at 13:45 up to 13:58 it's like they gave the animation to the new guy at work who sucks. It's so bad.

(I watch this because it reminds me of Ar Tonelico)
2289  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Katawa Shoujo - It's out! (Seriously!) on: January 21, 2012, 01:31:56 AM
Still haven't gotten to try and write anything about the game, buuuuuuuuut

The OST is up for download. Great music.

The game is beautiful, though, and I like that the cutscenes are anime rather than CG.  I liked Thousand Arms...

and I love ZoE2.

Well, to be fair, he did capitalize the "N"
2292  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Megaupload seized / shut down on: January 19, 2012, 08:47:11 PM
I'll just make it clear that I'm not defending Megaupload. What I am against though is how this was all done.
To go back to the Canada part; we have legal entities in this country. The fact they forebode letting Canada's enforcement force seize something on Canadian soil is appalling.
Also, to shut down a China based company... from the USA... and also take down all of their internet domains while they have not yet been judged guilty.
2293  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Megaupload seized / shut down on: January 19, 2012, 08:32:19 PM
It's a 2 year investigation which found that MegaUpload was quite deeply guilty. When 90% of your content is found to be illegal and you have taken no steps towards anti-piracy, there is a reason for your indictment.

Dude, MegaUpload are the bad guys here.

They followed the DMCA takedowns. Youtube is working on the same basis.
2294  The Rest / General Discussions / Megaupload seized / shut down on: January 19, 2012, 08:03:57 PM
The department of Justice (USA) has just seized Megaupload (China based) with 18 of their domains.
The FBI raided their data centers in the Netherlands, Canada and Washington.
Warrants were emitted against Kim Dotcom and his employees. The former and some others were arrested in Auckland, New Zealand. The rest are being tracked.

http://torrentfreak.com/megaupload-shut-down-120119/

They are charged with:
- Engaging in a racketeering conspiracy
- Conspiring to commit copyright infringement
- Conspiring to commit money laundering
- and two substantive counts of criminal copyright infringement

« An indictment unsealed today by the Department of Justice claims that MegaUpload has caused the entertainment industries more than $500 million in lost revenue and generated $175 million “in criminal proceeds.” »

I seriously can't stomach how the USA have no respect at all for other countries and just bully everyone. I'm actually ashamed my own government let the FBI raid a data center in Canada.

All this was done without SOPA or PIPA.
There is no word either about what is to happen to the thousands of people who had subscriptions.

Roar double post, but this is reeeeeeeally worth it

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNDaG7YqaV4#t=249s

Watch the whole thing, but this is clearly the best part.
Almost makes me want to play SW:TOR.
