    This is the equivalent of someone saying to you..."well if you don't have any money I can't sell you this bag of dirt"

    One of the main reasons we root is to get rid of blockbuster! So they are trying to tell us we can't use something we don't want and expect us to be disappointed. Huh??? Is this a riddle?

    can't wait until someone makes an app to tell the Blockbuster app that your phone is indeed not rooted... or to tell the Blockbuster app where to stick it, whichever is easier...

    I agree this is hilarious. They are the MAIN reason I root. I would guess that the great majority of rooted users has removed or renamed the blockbuster.apk file.

    The main reason I rooted was to rid my phone of bloatware.

    I like the fact that with GB you can make your own group in the app drawer... mine is rooted and I had already renamed the blockbuster apk, but if not I would have just made my own group in the app drawer and NOT included blockbuster...

    There is a reason blockbuster is closing all of it's retail stores.

    im not a halo guy at all. when i played black ops i despised those annoying halo jumpers, like it actually helps them to jump and shoot......

    AC series is pretty intense if you like the old era that happened before you, its a different step from GTA, as i was never a fan of GTA, i dont see myself beating up a hooker after being shot and somehow getting health back.... course ac is no different with eagle vision lol. but b3 may be worth the buy, im getting out of fps games, all the same, i stink... so there ya have it lol

    I stopped playing CoD series after the fallout between Activision and Infinity Ward. I dont mind FPS but I actually prefer Third Person Shooters, especially tactical ones. However, one of my favoriite franchises (SOCOM) went down the drain this gen. I watch one of my friends play AC II & Brotherhood and it looks awesome however imma wait for the new one Revalations to drop. Have you played the Mass Effect series?

    I could care less about the Blockbuster app. But this...

    The app comes equipped with Widevine’s DRM software that has the ability to detect whether or not your device has been left untouched in the system department. Oh and speaking of Widevine, did you know that Google owns them?

    ...bothers me, A LOT! And it's a bad sign of things to come I fear.

    You know MW2 has third person gametypes?

    and i would hope most companies are smart enough not to continue with the process, or why would we use their app.

    I run a team of morons that sell America's Best To
    Republic of Texas
    Have y'all tried Home Front? I know it was plagued with bugs on release day. But since then the have improved drastically. One of the few fps games that require teamwork, no solo wolfs. There is also Brink. Albeit different both are promising titles.
