At 5 bucks for the base game and 10 for the game plus DLC, is Kingdoms of Amalur worth it? and who actually gets paid since 38 Studio's has been dead for a while?

EA, probably.

I dunno, I think this looks pretty fucking awesome, and I'm excited for out. Not sure that releasing right on the same day as the PC version of GTA5 is all that smart, though...

1. How to get a job in computer security Sep 12, 2014, 12:34 Creston
 
- Read every single article ever written about computer security, ever.
- Study up on everything from virusses, anti-virus software, malware, firewalls, Ironport, Websense etc.
- Get certified as a security engineer.
- get job
- continue having to read every single article ever written on security and bypassing security, until you're so sick of it just the word security makes you vomit.
- Attend every "hacker" conference in existence
- Have all your efforts defeated because of one fucking HR user who can't be bothered to abide by network security standards.
- Get your ass roasted by senior management because obviously it was YOUR fault, not the useless HR toadie.

You couldn't fucking pay me enough to work in security.

You like how we made you wait a year? Here, wait another two months.

Also, every single game ever made is now being released on November 18th. WTF?

It does look awesome, though. Sandy Shores is amazing.

I like the idea of co-op missions, but every single thing in this video was just Bog.Standard.AC.101.

We should just start referring to this as Assassin of Duty.

I gotta admit, Forza Horizon 2 looks fucking great.

Too bad it's on a system I have no intention of buying.

Market value is different from capital value. But considering the other pies that they've got their fingers in? They could easily have ~200B in cash value assets as it sits right now. Usually when a company is selling, the market value is halved or cut down to 1/3 of the actual value.

Valve? How on earth do you think Valve has 200 billion dollars in assets? Again, their biggest money producer (probably their only money producer, unless you count TF2 hats) made 1.5 billion dollars in revenue last year. Even if you said that Steam has made 1.5 billion dollars every year AND that Steam ran at 100% profit, it would have to have been in existence for 130+ years.

I'm not being a smartass (or not trying to be ), but I just can't understand why you think Valve has so much money?

Yeah my produce in Tulsa is pretty cheap, but not THAT cheap.

But even so, I'd rather spend more and make my own stuff and know what's in it and that it's mostly healthy vs buying a jar or box of whatever and seeing that there's 4000 mg of Sodium in it...

Wish I could find the statement, but it was more along the lines of he could buy either EA or MS with the current capital that valve has. Where as MS or EA would require asset offloading plus stock trades to make it happen, and as many people know--cash is still king. So are physical assets with purchases.

What? As of May 2014 (first link I could find, I'm lazy), Microsoft's market value was $343.82 billion. Do you seriously think Valve has 350 BILLION dollars in cash lying around? Steam made 1.5 billion dollars in revenue last year. I know it makes them insane amounts of money, but we're still talking massive levels of difference here.

MS probably has enough cash to buy Valve, IF Gabe was interested in selling, but he's never given any kind of indication that he was, nor that he'd be amenable to MS taking over and, undoubtedly, completely fucking ruining Steam.

Well, this thread exploded in a hurry. Why would a simple business acquisition inspire such discussion?

Is there anyone in the world besides maybe the Pope and the Dhali Lama who would say no to 2 billion dollars?

The Pope, seriously? He'd sell out for fifteen bucks.

I didn't realize the Ravens had actually cut Rice, and that the NFL FINALLY indefinitely suspended him.

So apparently, dragging an unconscious body out of an elevator when the only possible explanation is that you knocked her out: 2 games suspension.

Being caught knocking the woman out on tape so the NFL can't deny it any longer: Lose your job, suspended indefinitely.


Fuck Roger Goodell and every piece of shit owner in the NFL.

Sony kind of does have a Minecraft clone in development with EQ Next Landmark. I am pretty sure Next or Landmark will ever rise above niche status for most people and certainly no where near Minecraft levels.

Isn't Fortnite coming to PS4?

Damn, it's got to be nice to have a job so awesome that you can just sleep in your car and save all that rent/mortgage money.

If I was going to do that I'd rather be a cowboy riding the range and camping out under the stars.

That's awesome right up until the first night it rains, or you wake up with some kind of fucking scorpion crawling in your bunghole.

One of you guys here has told me a lot about Endless Space, and I've been on the fence about getting it. Any news on this new version?

I need something to tide me over until November 18th when every game ever made is apparently being (re)released.
