Enlarge It's not easy to craft a 100-hour-plus space opera epic on the scale of Mass Effect: Andromeda , even with five years and over $40 million to blow on it. But, as anyone who's tried to cut the queue at a PAX book signing can attest to, hell hath no fury like a fanboy scorned. You'll be unsurprised to hear, then, that since Mass Effect: Andromeda hit retail last week, an Internet mob has formed to give developer Bioware a good kicking—and with good reason. It's safe to say that Andromeda has its fair share of problems, including clunky user interface issues, ropy dialogue, and some lacklustre writing. The critical response has been mixed at best (and the less said about the user Metacritic reviews the better) although our Lee Hutchinson was a tad more positive in his early review . Still, Lee was quick to point out Andromeda 's most significant and visible failing: some seriously dodgy facial and character animations.

As official TV audiences decline the Premier League is taking actionPolice forces across the UK and abroad are collaborating with ISPs The Premier League has launched its biggest crackdown on piracy with a series of moves to combat illegal streaming, in light of fears that widespread availability of new consumer-friendly devices could fatally undermine its business model. The streaming of live football through the internet, bypassing companies such as Sky who have paid for the broadcast rights, has long been a problem for the game’s governing bodies. What was once a minority activity, available only to those with digital skills and knowledge of the more shadowy parts of the internet, has in the past few years become mainstream. Estimates at the number of piracy-enabled devices in the UK, either apps or so‑calledKodi boxes’, reach the hundreds of thousands. Continue reading...

SONY movies chief Tom Rothman quipped "Netflix my ***" on Monday as he presented new footage from Blade Runner 2049, showing a more dystopian and dark movie than the original. The studio boss took a swipe at the internet streamer at a sneak preview of the sequel to Ridley Scott's cult sci-fi classic at CinemaCon, an annual gathering of theater owners in Las Vegas. Netflix has found itself in conflict with the operators of movie theaters in the past because its original content goes straight onto viewers' TVs and mobile devices. Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 sees Harrison Ford reprise his role as Rick Deckard from the 1982 movie, while Ryan Gosling leads a cast of newcomers including Jared Leto and Robin Wright. "Prepare to start going steady with edge of your seats," Gosling joked as introduced bleak scenes from Los Angeles and a snow-bound Las Vegas, all of which were filmed in Budapest.

ET has pointed out the instances of Omnesys and Infotech merely to highlight NSE's general lack of corporate hygiene as an institution and the casual manner in which top managers treat systems and processes. As the senior manager quoted earlier said, “The hubris of our people has hurt the institution.'' RULE BY CONVENTION During the forensic audit, a key NSE employee told Deloitte that an internal decision was taken in early 2012 to distribute members with multiple IPs (Internet Protocol) to more than one server to minimise the risk. There was no record of the decision nor could anyone recall who took it, the Deloitte report says. “Our review highlighted a lack of documented policies and protocols with respect to various aspects of the functioning of the TBT (tickby-tick) system, including manner of allocation of member IPs to servers, connections to secondary servers, etc,'' the auditors wrote.

Trump wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and reduce American women to the same estate as the Irish and the Iranians. And you might be depressed about that until you realize that he wants actually to throw women in jail for having abortions, as he told Chris Matthews, and wants to whittle away and women's rights in general. Trump wants to abolish internet privacy and allow private corporations to sell your browser history without your knowledge to other corporations. And you might despair about that until you realize that his ultimate goal to to get rid of net neutrality and make sure we can only visit the web sites of a handful of huge media conglomerates if we want the site to load in less than half an hour. Trump wants a ban on entrants from six Muslim countries and you might despair about that until you realize his real goal is a complete Muslim ban, followed by a complete Mexican ban.
