News Comments > EA Closing Maxis?
11. Re: EA Closing Maxis? Mar 4, 2015, 16:49 Quboid
 
I have high hopes for Cities Skylines. A city builder is a pretty big project so I know it might be rather sparse but if the basic simulation is good it could be excellent.

Maxis died for me 2 years ago.

20-25GB for a patch? If you have a strict bandwidth cap, I'm guessing your language selection will be salty.

So they looked at the stink H1Z1 caused and thought "yep, we need some of that"? Oh CoD, you do look tired.

I have to go on record and agree with the assesment that a sequel for Blade Runner is completely unecessary and more to the point would ruin the ambiguity of the original flick.

I don't remember any ambiguity and both Scott and Ford have said that there's nothing to it. Is there any reason to elevate this above any other non-canon fan theory like James Bond being a codename?

I haven't watched it recently, I should.

It looks absolutely white and gold while standing in a blue light here. The picture that makes it look more white looks like someone is fixing the influence of the blue light, everything else looks like a butchered photoshop or a different dress entirely. My brain just won't accept anything else. I can sorta understand how people are seeing blue but I don't get the black at all. Neat stuff.

Edit: Nimoy. Godamnit. RIP.

Take the color test I linked. I'm curious to see the results. Because if you're not color blind either than it has to be a monitor contrast issue.


I got 10/10 and I see much the same thing as Negadeath does. It reminds me of trying to photograph snowy scenes with a cheap camera and getting blue photos (and not the good sort) because the camera's white balance was thrown out of whack.

jacobvandy, it's an optical illusion in which something seemly objective is highly subjective. That's quite interesting. We're not gossiping about who wore it best.

Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83. As a very infrequent Star Trek viewer, he was my favourite.

That article could have been on The Onion, particularly Cutter's quote. No you may not feature some content over others, the fucking nerve of those pricks.

Thanks for the links.

The district system looks cool and the painting system worked well in Cities In Motion. Farms too, I like to be able to create more than the actual cities - although they do look like allotments.

News Comments > GTA5 PC Delay
88. Re: GTA5 PC Delay Feb 26, 2015, 14:08 Quboid
 
Pre-orders encourage publishers to focus on marketing hype rather than the actual game, causing time to be wasted making "vertical slices" (aka E3 lies) rather than on the actual game. It has created a culture of style over substance.

I will preorder if you give me a good reason to and your track record is good. GTAV's pre-order deal is decent, Rockstar's record is mixed - I've seen much worse, but I see no reason to preorder in this case.

A population cap of 1 million would be disappointing but your explanation of things being simulated at any one time makes sense.

Here is an excellent series of very informative videos on the game.

Could you check that link? That's just this one video.

A defense for everything and for everything a defense, I shouldn't be surprised.

Well, what do you want? These accusations are bullshit, they are the reason why we can't have a proper debate. There's always a defence because they're always nonsense and MA is at it again.

You're so keen on proving that Feminist Frequency isn't perfect that you haven't noticed that no one is saying that they are.

I want to be excited for this but it's really hard.

That's what she said...

*ahem*

They're taking the opposite route to Simcity 2013 at every opportunity (map size, offline, mods) which is great so I hope that the underlying simulation holds up. I quite liked Cities in Motion and the city simulation was the best part of them.

Please be good, I'd love a decent city builder.

All you need to know about Sarkeesian is this picture.

She's nothing but a mouthpiece for her "producer" Jonathan McIntosh. It even looks like he does all her Tweeting for her as well.

There aren't even words. This is the bullshit artist people have been defending here for months? At least now I can stop wasting time on this shit, 100% discredited.

Feminist Frequency is an organisation, that's not just her account. This isn't a secret.

Thank you jdreyer. You seem to get it and your criticism is interesting.

No, she doesn't have a point here, that IS the point. 'this is a trope' is meaningless shit without examining the context of whatever it is you're criticizing. You people just go in circles, its like pounding my head against a wall. 'ok well she was wrong but its ok because...', no its not ok, she was just plain wrong no if ands or buts. You want people to consider the times where shes right well you have to consider the times where shes wrong and stop trying to save face on her behalf or whatever weird shit is going on here.

I repeatedly said that this was dumb of her. I have criticised her and did so in the post you quoted. I don't like her and I have no interest in saving face on her behalf. I do consider when she is wrong. Do you consider when she is right?

I agree with you about Dying Light, Redmask. I think she tweeted based on a second hand information and she shouldn't have done that. As I said, this was dumb, but it doesn't invalidate her message any more than repeating the word tropes does.

You seem to acknowledge that these tropes do exist so she has a point, no? Whereas NewMaxx has demonstrated a lack of understanding and a brickwall as regards sensible debate, no?

I hate the amount of bullshit that surrounds her but she's not really the source.

The idiots that harassed Quinn, and they are fucking idiots of the worst, are just that, idiots, that belong to no group and that always show up anywhere there's a debate on the internet.

I think that this is the crux of the problem. There are plenty of sexist gamers who belong to GamerGate and you can't disown them just because you don't like them. That's the problem with leaderless, aimless movements like this.

Actually, yes we can disown them. That's the real problem - we can say 'Fuck those guys, they're idiots'. But no matter who in GG says that, no matter how often it's denounced, it's always treated as a foul. 'No, you can't say you denounce them, that doesn't count, we're going to say you're all sexists and racists and harassers. Denouncing those things doesn't count. The only thing that counts is giving up completely.'

Funny how that works.

But I suppose we can say: you can't disown Wu, and you certainly can't disown this idiot who quite literally faked a threat, just as Wu can't disown her faking her own harassment. Lying about death threats, sexual harassment, and more is now, apparently, the sexist legacy of anti-GG.

That's how this works, right?

You've hit the nail on the head, GG is always treated as a foul. Its legacy, how it will be remembered, is for sexism and harassment. Calling out unethical behaviour under a toxic label just makes the accusation easier to deflect.

Anti-GG, whatever that is, has no legacy. I honestly don't know what you mean by anti-GG, is this a specific campaign or hashtag, or is it anyone who criticises GG?
