  1. There's no way to merge the two.CCP (EVE Online's creators) use Steam as a distribution method and possibly for billing. But beyond that, I don't think they link up much at all. CCP tends to be rather jealous of its control over its IP and its profits.
  2. Try "Open the pod bay doors, Hal." Also ask her if she speaks Klingon. Both are amazing.
  3. I've got my own blog now! It's about tanks and other stuff that interests me: https://mistertretiakpresents.wordpress.com/

      Some interesting stuff there, I like the camo video. X)

  4. I am Agares. I remember when all of this was ocean. Ocean created by Keno flooding the sim so he could drive his boat. I've seen things you wouldn't believe. AN ships on fire off the beltway of Tethys, Brazilians glittering in the darkness near BOPE's base. All these memories are lost, like bullets in a raid on Titan.
  5. Aye. You're essentially paying for access to the product, rather than full ownership. The license for even hard-copy games is attached to the disc and that's why burning a copy can be considered theft if you're selling the copies or handing them out to friends. Digital licenses run the gamut on how they're set up, for instance on the Xbox systems, your Xbox LIVE account is technically leased and not owned by you. This allows Microsoft to enforce various policies that help it regulate the service, since they technically own all the accounts people have made. That said, many companies generally try to treat customers with the same sort of services and policies that you'd have as direct owners of the product, though if they are forced into a corner or wish to, they can enforce, at any time, their technical rights of ownership and revoke or otherwise protect the license. The key issue then is that the company in question with this situation will likely lose a lot of its credibility and risks losing support from the people who've helped make them successful. They clearly need to rethink how they're treating their customers, even if they've the technical right to do what they did.
  6. If you think I'm easily bribed...
  7. Ah, that's unfortunate. I'm a big fan of simulator combat.
  8. My character from FF XIV.
  9. Hey, you old so and so. How about a little bout of murder for old time's sake?
  10. Having cookies is not the same as sharing them, however. I see through your clever ploy.
  11. A cover up from whom? Because I know exactly who killed him. And if it was a cover-up, his 'unfortunate' cake murder would have been passed off as some sort of culinary induced accident, rather than suspected of foul play.
  12. :(
  13. ^ Until I see significant changes in how these games work, it doesn't matter how intriguing the story is if it feels like I'm playing a game so easy, it was meant for six year olds.
  14. Requesting that this thread is also pinned (as it was part of the approved RP background): http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php/topic/12662-guide-galaxy-map-time-line/?hl=timeline#entry87473 Will be updating that thread soon as well with some more background information!
  15. It's supposed to be an "Angry Marine", but they made it into a troll marine.
  16. Yeah, I saw this a while ago. It's interesting, but I'm still a bit iffy on just how flexible it'll be.
  17. First, let me say I am a proud man, for better or worse. But pride has it's logical limits and I have reached said limits. I've been unable to work for the past three months due to an exteded illness. While I still have a job for the time being, I'm unable to work and thus cannot bring in the income neccessary to keep silly things like the power on at this time. It's extremely embarrassing, but I'm fairly low on options at this time. The amount due is a snowball from hell of several months of not being able to pay, coming to $738.46. This is the total, but we need to pay the amount of 291.98 to turn the power back on. Right now, it's my mother and I in the apartment. She's still working, but we're just barely covering our rent as it is, so this amount is beyond our current finances. Our income, normally, is beyond what social welfare agencies are willing to assist with, and there's really no family we can turn to for help. So I come to you all, humbly, to ask if anyone could possibly assist us. I'll be keeping an eye on my PMs on the website today and tomorrow and you can send me a text via my phone number, which you can get via PM if you want to speak to me that way. I'm not expecting much, really, but I don't know where else or who else to turn to at this time. Thank you for your time.
  18. Thank you to everyone who helped, I've just got the payment confirmation in with the power company and power should be on in an hour or two.
  19. I got nothing.
  20. I would so totally play. ;_; It's not as bad as you might think. You may need to keep your draw distances down, but the game is significantly better optimized than ArmA II. And the inventory system is magical compared to previous iterations.
  21. Hi!

    Oh god, she followed one of us home.
  22. I have to point out that Aryte's oooold Avatar on SL was often mistaken for a cat.
  23. The facility technically has offered internet access, but you have to pay for it according to the Fort Benning OCS website.
