MRA's, SJW's, feminists, etc, come in all shapes of sizes. They don't all agree internally. There are shades and nuance and all the groups can make good points. All the groups can make bad points, and all the groups can be hateful and vitriolic.

My understanding is that the Expo can legally eject anyone they want for any reason they want. Even if the reason is bad and you agree to those terms. If they get complaints, they can eject people even if those complaints are not accurate. I don't think it's in their best interest to do so, but they can nonetheless.

However, that doesn't mean it was just to eject them. Basically before forming a judgement, I want to know exactly what the evidence is for the alleged harassment. Anyone have the evidence that was used to decide to eject them besides complaints? Maybe an actual instance of harassment?

They are reselling the version of the game with DX11 graphics they promised in the initial release with some different item and enemy placement and more text descriptions. And the graphics especially the shadows and lighting are still not quite what they showed in 2013. Also with graphics mods like GEDOSATO, you largely get the "better graphics" already in the DX9 version. To show you how much they give a shit, they are splitting the community between the DX11 and the DX9 version because those are not multiplayer compatible. They are largely just reselling the game. Oh did I mention that the single player save games are also not compatible and you have to start a new character? You need a chart to keep track of what you get and how much the "upgrade" costs based on what you bought previously. Fuck em.

When a dev gives you a number about how long their game is, take it with a grain of salt. History has shown that they tend to exaggerate.

True, but it goes by degrees. When a dev says their game is 12 hours, it usually turns out to be 6-8 hours. When a dev says their game is 200 hours, in my experience it's usually around or over the 100 hour mark. So it's still a huge game by any measure.
Agreed...as long as the exaggerations are proportional.

This is a translation originally written in German from a gaming rag which got access to play so they could write a story. Special access has a tendency to result in positive previews. How many previews have you read that were negative?

Who is the journalist that wrote this and how is their history with presenting facts with honesty? Those are the questions you should ask and be skeptical (which does not mean cynical).

Can you actually waive your rights away in EU like that? Don't we have some people with legal training that can tell us on these boards?

Is this only for gifts or for region based non gifts like buying a foreign region key and then activating it through VPN and then playing from your actual region?

They need to show a proper working PC version. You show the console version when you think it's the furthest along.

Wow and the video description said that all of that was rendered at 30 FPS. 30 FPS, that's better than the 24 FPS in theaters. Yay!

Mouselook! Good work. It's only 2015!
Agreed. It's embarrassing to think that a major developer could not do better on the PC. Goes to show you how much of a priority the PC port is and was. It's going to be a "beta" feature now. Oooo. Hard not to be sarcastic.

Uhhhh I thought this was obvious.

1) Find someone you like.
2) Ask if they want to combine naughty bits with you.
3) If yes, then do so. If no, purchase chloroform.

From there I think it's self explanatory.
You can purchase all the chloroform you want. But what good is it if you don't use it? You need a use step.

P.S. It goes without saying that this is strictly a joke and I do not endorse chloforming other people, unless they give you explicit consent.

This game is the result of abstinence only sex education... We need comprehensive sex education.

What a huge fuck up. How do you fail to communicate what's in your game properly? Goes to show you how much effort has been put into the title for the PC.

Does Game Workshop have some kind of shovelware quota? Can't they get some bidds from more established developers? Once in a while Games Workshop you gotta license your stuff to someone who can competently do something worthwhile with it.

Things to avoid: A mobile plants vs zombies clone from a dev who already made a plants vs zombies and just switched out some sprites.
Or a developer with no track record.
Wake up.

A fan of 40K.
