they dare to monitor hardware changes now

Of course they dare. Customers have widely and consistently demonstrated that they don't give a shit about what kind of DRM hoops publishers make them jump through, so why WOULDN'T EA do this? Change a few pieces of hardware, bam, go buy a new copy unless you get a friendly support guy in chat. More $ for EA.

Without her, these stories don't end up in the news.

None of her stories ended up in the news before #gamergate hit. Then it became an easy target for simple slander/sensationalist bullshit that passes for news in this country, so suddenly all the "news media" wanted a piece.

#gamergate was roughly 1000000000% more influential than Anita Sarkeesian ever was.

And the responses I've seen from actual developers have shown them giving thoughts to the themes she's trying to communicate.

If we go by the motto of "it gave people thoughts", then Blue has more influence than Anita Sarkeesian. We'll revisit this entire train of thought when a reasonably major developer changes the way they work because of her gripes.

Wtf? I bought the deluxe edition and I see now that it didn't include any forthcoming DLC. Fucking EA, man.

Yes, the deluxe DA:I is sadly a shockingly bad value, even among an already dubious crowd of Deluxe Editions.

Eh, the soundtrack was easily worth ten bucks to me. The other stuff is pretty lame, but I've got five or six of the pieces of music of the soundtrack on my phone.

2. Nielsen reports Mar 24, 2015, 20:49 Creston
 
This is the same Nielsen that still swears up and down that CBS is the most watched network, that 2 and a half men is still the best watched comedy, etc etc etc.

Iow, it has little to do with reality anymore.

I guess influential now means "People who can get other people to bitch at them?"

If so, then yes, Anita Sarkeesian is very influential. So is Derek Smart.

If by influential we mean "Who are actively making changes in the way things are/work" etc, then Anita Sarkeesian has roughly 0.0% influence.

It looks pretty good, although there seem to be zero new enemies.

And of course it's $15, because it's EA. I think I'll pass.

also im still waiting for them to add a face edit feature to the in-game portion... i dont understand why this isnt available.. it needs to be in every game that has detailed face creation, IMO - or at least ones like bioware where you have to stare at the fucker up close during all the cutscenes

Amen. What's even weirder is that they always give you this particular lighting setup during char-gen, and then said lighting setup NEVER gets repeated in the actual game, so your character looks nothing like you thought it would. DA:I isn't as terrible as Mass Effect (where Shepard looks NOTHING like what you made in the char-gen), but it's still pretty bad.

Laidlaw even said that they specifically made a Neutral lighting setup for DA:I char-gen. Which, of course, was another lie, since it's clearly the same lighting setup as the Veil.

It's ridiculous that nobody at Bioware understands this...

I stopped playing a week after release and have not bothered with it since. Please, somebody tell me this has since then been address or fixed... since the only thing that matters to me is the combat. Have they fixed the mess that is the tactical combat option for the PC version? Or do party members still teleport to you after you set them up and tell the ranged fighters to stay clear?

Nothing destroys the fun of a battle with a huge dragon more than arranging your team from the tactical over-head and then when switching to the fighter who is up close and personal you find your entire party has stupidly warped or teleported to your side just to be stomped to the ground by the dragon you just told them to attack at a distance. How the fuck that made it through play testing... I would really like to know? Needless to say that is the very last game that I will buy from Biowares on release day. From DA:I on I will demo their games or I will not purchase them. Tired of the BS and the reviewers not a one mentioning this issue. Not even Anger Fuckin' Joe.

Edit: Ah, isn't that convenient they patch just before releasing a new DLC. So very special.

? They stay at ranged for me, but Dragons do have a special attack that draws everyone into melee range, and they use it OFTEN.

That said, if you as the main character run too far away from the dragon itself, it seems you trip some sort of "OHMUHGERD RUN!" mode that makes all party members return to you. It's happened to me a few times, but really only if I go quite a ways away from the Dragon.

I wind up having to reset my party members maybe 3 or 4 times per Dragon fight or so, so it's not too bad, I feel. It'd be kinda boring if you set them once and then you just watch the Dragon's health bar go down for ten minutes, too.

I wouldn't bitch except they touted the tactical combat feature when it was really a lie

Mike Laidlaw does nothing BUT lie. I think he's trying to become the next Peter Molyeneneneuuxuxuxx. "Dragon Age Inquisition is a PC Game made by PC Gamers!"

...

I mean, I still really enjoy the game, but it's NOT a fucking PC game.

You'll find me near the front of the line complaining about the F-35, but the article seems to only mention them in a second hand way. They claim the new launch system is designed to cause less wear and tear on all aircraft and the pilots. Which, if true, seems to be a reasonable design goal for a new aircraft carrier launch system.

I was just joking.

Everyone should be playing Cities: Skylines. It's pretty fantastic even with the commercial zone bug although the mod fix seems to have corrected that problem for me. I have about 75,000 on 3 tiles so far and I can't stop building. I love this game!

The commercial zone bug was fixed in the last patch.

My buildings are rarely devolving and it seems impossible for population growth ever to be in the negative.

It will go negative, but in cycles. When you have a lot of seniors and they die, you get a year or so of negative growth where you lose ~ 10% of your population. It stabilizes and continues to grow again the next year, only to repeat after the cims' 6 year life-cycle.

If you continue to provide for your cims and build according to demand, it'd be hard to see why your population would decline?

That said, it is not a terribly difficult game, no. If your city fails, it'll fail in the beginning, and even then it's not that hard to recover.

This guide has now become absolutely insanely good. Where before it was more of a "hey, look at my pretty city with no traffic issues!" he now goes brutally in-depth into a lot of the systems.

I learned a lot from spending ~ 2 hours reading the whole thing. Definitely worth it if you're having traffic issues. (Or, in my case, no concept of how public transport should work.)
