UPDATE - JCPenney has agreed to stop selling the shirt. That was some extremely quick action on their part!

Regarding the Deus Ex: Human Revolution OnLive Codes: We don't make a habit of promoting competitive services without a formal partnership. Square Enix packed the competitor's coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull these coupons. While the new products may be opened, we fully guarantee the condition of the discs to be new. If you find this to not be the case, please contact the store where the game was purchased and they will further assist.It's bad enough that GameStop is so unapologetic in its asshattery, but to then claim that DEHR is their product? Seriously? DEHR is Square Enix's property which they allow GameStop to sell. Square's product was sold to GameStop customers in a different condition than how they packaged it. It was tampered with, opened, and sold as a new item, and I am not the only one questioning how legal it is. The coupon they stole from their customers before pulling the rest of their copies off the shelves was valued at $49.99. If someone stole that much money from you, you'd be pretty upset and rightly so. How is what they did not theft, not deceptive business practices, and not a violation of their agreement with Square Enix to be allowed to sell their products?
We have leveled the playing field so there's no such thing as a "PlayDate account" anymore. We found that it was too confusing and users wanted to interact more than the Player/PlayDate setup allowed.Yeah, holy poop. This site, and the upcoming site, are designated to have people exchange their time and companionship for goods and/or services, which is no different than prostitution. Though it's not explicit, the the implications are strong - these are sites geared toward gamer guys to have "hot gamer chicks" spend time gaming with them in exchange for gifts. And in this situation, no one wins.
We still offer a way for high-demand users to earn rewards on the site. You can play games for virtual gifts, which can be exchanged for credits to be used in our store for Rewards. You can earn some pretty cool stuff like games, consoles, computers, and Pac-Man staplers.
We are also licensing our technology to a site that will not have our anti-nudity policy. That will offer per-minute payments and tipping (whichGameCrush used to offer). That site will be launching soon - if you are interested, let me know.
Hope this answers your question! If you have more questions, they might be answered in our FAQ: http://www.gamecrush.com/#page=faq
I made it a goal for myself to make wine. This journey started three years ago and is just now coming together. See, I told myself that if I was going to do this, I was going to do it right, which meant I had to grow some grapes.
It took me three seasons to get a good grape harvest, or any harvest at all to be honest. Tonight I picked the first bunches and am delighted. Can't wait for the fermenting to begin!
Motorola’s total commitment to Android in mobile devices is one of many reasons that there is a natural fit between our two companies. Together, we will create amazing user experiences that supercharge the entire Android ecosystem for the benefit of consumers, partners and developers everywhere.
This acquisition will not change our commitment to run Android as an open platform. Motorola will remain a licensee of Android and Android will remain open. We will run Motorola as a separate business. Many hardware partners have contributed to Android’s success and we look forward to continuing to work with all of them to deliver outstanding user experiences.
This week it came out that Marvel Comics is offering retailers a variant cover of “Fear Itself #6″ by artist Ed McGuinness. But, there is a catch: To get the coveted cover, retailers have to rip the covers from 50 copies of any No. 1 issue of DC Comics Flashpoint tie-ins. This is not a figure of speech, they literally have to tear the covers off and send them to Marvel to get the special edition, rendering the issues unsalable.Destroying art and literature because of some penis measuring contest these two companies have been waging for decades is just wrong. Instead of offering this special variant for ripped up DC covers, why not offer it to retailers who donate unsold comics to children's homes? Or to any charitable organization who would get the comics into the hands of people who love comics but can't afford them? Marvel claims they are doing this because "these are tough economical times" and they're "just trying to help out." How is this helping out? These merchants bought these books from DC, and are essentially destroying their own profits to get the carrot Marvel is dangling over their heads.

Time Manipulation was originally an idea pitched to me by Sean "Dr. Aeon" McCann. In retrospect, the idea seems very appropriate given that character's dabbling in time travel. I always imagined a time-based Power Set as being control focused, and probably as a primary set for Controllers and Dominators. However, the concept Sean suggested with this set was very solid and quickly changed my way of thinking. In fact, I'd say the Time Manipulation set still retains about 50% of the original design proposal. After we solidified the proposal, it took a lot of balancing and number-tweaking, and then a lot of amazing work by our animation and FX teams to bring the idea to life.
