      Update 5: Infinite Wisdom is here!   10/05/2017

        Hey everyone, We’re back with another update that really mixes some stuff up. An entirely new challenging mode, a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations and more! With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have! Feel free to check out what we’ve changed in the list below, and as always – please leave us feedback about anything you find noteworthy. As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing. Check out our blog for the full changelist: http://blog.thebehemoth.com/2017/09/28/update-5-infinite-wisdom-is-here/

"Let's Play" videos could end up illegal should a bill pass

According to Game Informer, a Senate Bill has been introduced which, if passed, would make streaming unauthorized copyrighted material a felony, resulting in up to 5-years of jail time.

Bill S.978 states that "10 or more public performances by electronic means, during any 180-day period, of 1 or more copyrighted works" will result in "not more than 5 years" of imprisonment, so long as the performance in question is valued at at-least $2,500 USD, or if the value of a license to legally "perform" the content is valued at $5,000 or more.

Let this be noted that this is only a proposed bill. AKA NOT IN EFFECT (YET).

Unlike say... banning certain video games for mere CONTENT, this is to be attached to the current copyright laws.

My Opinion?

Oh go to hell Senate if this passes. I wanted to make a Let's Play sometime.

Plus what about those games that allow you to upload matches on youtube? I'd certainly like to show off how much better I am than you at the game.

God!!!! They just can't find anything else to make illegal. Sooner or later breathing will be illegal too.

It's impossible. If the bill passed, they'd have to shut down half the internet, fine half the internet's users, and build 90325874542386 jails to hold them in.

Well breathing is highly addictive and the effects of withdrawal...

Oh god withdrawal hurts.

You are genius.

Does this mean no more HCBailly? He makes the most entertaining series I've seen in years. Far better than anything on television these days, but sadly, the money-makers always get the upper-hand. And many others too... No more DeceasedCrab, NintendoCapriSun, SeaNanners. Great videos like Half-Life Full Life Consequences, and seeing those great creations on Minecraft and Garry's Mod. This really sucks, a lot of what I enjoy about the internet will be gone. Hopefully this doesn't pass, because I'll be really upset if it does.
