I'm not sure why they call it trolling. It's called the Fifth Amendment. As much as our government likes to pretend it doesn't, the Constitution is actually valid for everyone, even asshats like Shkreli.

The FTC has a criminal case pending against him, so OF COURSE he isn't going to answer Congress' questions. Nobody would have.

Now the question is whether Congress will hold him in Contempt of Congress, but that hasn't happened too often.

Well, this article is about UK tax relief ( I assume, I can't actually open it here at work), but devs get just as much tax relief on this side of the point.

Why? I'm all for giving fledgling industries the help they need to grow, but now that it's bigger than Hollywood, the handouts really should just stop. It's no different than all the stupid subsidies we keep giving to farmers in freaking Arizona so they can stay afloat.

I gotta admit, that looks quite a bit like the old doom. And that last bit, with the Hellknight ripping his legs off was just ... o_O

It's a... what, like 40 billion dollar industry? Why does it still need tax relief when governments the world over don't have two pennies to rub together?

especially considering that Godus Wars has been delivered as a free update

The gal of these guys... Free update? You NEVER FINISHED the game that people had paid you good money for. Godus Wars is a minor step to actually delivering what your Promise Monkey said he'd deliver. So yeah, everyone should be SO grateful that it's being delivered as a "free update."

I genuinely cannot put enough Rolleyes smileys here.

Other Senators, meanwhile, hold up the tens of thousands of dollars they got from Comcast, and introduce a bill that basically says "ISP should be able to rape customers in any way, shape or form they please."

And yes, I'm looking at you, YOU FUCKING PIECE OF CORRUPT SHIT FROM OREGON.

So they release Godus Wars, a game with almost no reviews, and say they will delete the Godus store page and focus on this game instead.

Right, not a way to delete all the negative feedback and brush it into the rug or anything.


SSSSSHHHHH!!!!! Look, pretty pictures!


OOOHHHH. Wait, these are all pictures of you.

that fixes a problem where a system would prompt users with a question about ejecting their graphics card.

Now it just shows

"Dear user,

Please do not eject me while playing your games.

Thank you,
Your GTX970."

As much fun as these tend to be, I can't help but think they'll do another trilogy set once episode 9 ships.

Granted, that is like 3+ years away.


Yeah I'll wait for the Full Trilogy game. They always do one. But when they do, I'm there. I love playing these in co-op.

"As we shared in late October on the Windows Blog, we are committed to making it easy for our Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers to upgrade to Windows 10," says a Microsoft spokesperson. "We updated the upgrade experience today to help our customers, who previously reserved their upgrade, schedule a time for their upgrade to take place."

Die in a fire, Microsoft.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The map scale seems largely out of whack considering California and Nevada are the 3rd and 7th largest states by area. Can you imagine a trip to Rhode Island? If you're not careful, you'll sneeze and blow right through the entire damn state.

I hear what you're saying, but in RL that's a 4+ hour drive. You really want to spend you're entire night driving one route? 15M seems pretty reasonable.

Not if that's essentially the entire length of the map, though... There are drives in ETS2 that take 1.5 to 2 hours. Maybe not everybody's cup of tea, but there are plenty of people who like and want that. It sounds as if that's just plain not possible in ATS.

"Hey, you remember that game that we kickstarted and then delivered with most of its features missing? That game that was going to be on the PC, got kickstarted for the PC, but then we really only worked on the mobile version? Cool! We're making some more vague promises, and offering more people the chance to buy into it again!"

TRUST PETER WITH YOUR MONEY!

Cool

That said, I didn't enjoy Hong Kong very much. I replayed Dragonfall after finishing Hong Kong, and Dragonfall is twice the RPG that Hong Kong is.

I think the first thing I'm going to do with the mod tools (if possible) is make a "Take Your Time" mod. The one thing I'm not excited about is the "You have 3 turns to get somewhere" crap at the start of every mission.

That turns it from a strategy/tactics game into one of pure luck.

If it's anything like "The Long War" mod for the original, and it seems it's lifting/inspired by that mod a whole lot (Yay!), is that the time pressure is usually there to hand out bonuses for getting lucky/being clever. I think it's because we are all our own worst enemy in Xcom, moving one squadie 3 squares with the rest of the team on over-watch every turn since 1994!

Though I don't see anything wrong with the odd timed "Evac" mission for a bit of tension. Sucks to lose a veteran but war is hell.


I don't mind the occasional mission like that, but it seems that EVERY mission has it...?
