Note that they're taking a pay cut for four months. This isn't some "we fucked up, we're going with half from now on."

For four months, he's taking $250,000 home every month instead of $500,000. Then it'll just go back to $500K.

(And similar for the others who are taking less. Yeah, I'm sure you're really gonna feel that $100K loss on your $500K salary.)

One giant paragraph, and nowhere does he say "Yeah, it was launched prematurely/poorly."

Fucking ass. EA taking lessons? When hell fucking freezes over.

The Character & Fitness part of being accepted to a bar is actually pretty huge.

Fitness? So fat people can't be lawyers?

Ethical fitness.
You think attorneys use words that mean what you'd think they mean?

Hahaha. Touche.

    Since when do you need morals to be a lawyer?

    "Many of his efforts from the time of his exposure in 1998 until the 2010 hearing, however, seem to have been directed primarily at advancing his own well-being rather than returning something to the community."

    Oh, I guess every other lawyer on the planet works for the betterment of mankind, then?

    But what Microsoft is also tacitly admitting with this move is that the Kinect just isn't important to people the way it wanted it to be

    Get outta town?! Really? You mean, a stupid gimmick is still a stupid gimmick?? *mind blown*

    ...

    morons.

    I still havent gotten around to getting the first one. Will have to remedy that situation soon...

    Gets real tough through the middle and all the way to the end, at least it was for me (my character was a decker, with skills in melee and small arms). I always brought 3 other companions along for runs if the choice was presented (at least 1 healer, 1 ranged small arms expert, and another healer or small arms expert)

    The way this version of shadowrun works, I'd recommend always multi-spec'ing a decker to be a rigger as well. Those drones are absolute murderous beasts.

    As for the save anywhere feature, it's in the 1.2 beta patch. It seems to be included in the general engine build, though people still need to make some changes in their module to have it work there too.

    Dragonfall is just purely a story campaign. All fixes/enhancements etc are in the 1.2 patch which everyone will get.

    wait a minute...

    I get seasick playing FPS games because of the FOV? I could play them again if I could adjust the FOV? Here I thought it was just me getting old. Is there some sort of magic number or is it different for different people?

    Oh Jivaro...

    What monitor do you have, and how far away do you sit? The sweet spot is usually somewhere between 90-110, and it's kinda personal preference as to which you prefer. Wide screen monitors do better with a wider FoV, but if you sit further away you can lower it a little. I'm usually right around 100, but I have a 32" 16:9 monitor that I'm sitting maybe 3 feet away from.

    If you're getting seasick, you're sitting too close with too small of a FoV.

    Gears - The series with a plot so forgettable that Bulletstorm actually surpassed it.

    Bulletstorm was fucking awesome, btw. One of the very few games I've ever managed to actually finish all the way. Excellent story and interesting characters. Not a 'deep' story, but not everything has to be to be fun. Will always love that game...


    =-Rigs-=

    I actually quite enjoyed it, but not for the characters. Dear God...

    While investigating a hosting company known for sheltering child porn last year the FBI incidentally seized the entire e-mail database of a popular anonymous webmail service called TorMail.

    And this is why the NSA's "we're only using the database for active investigations" horseshit is precisely that: horseshit.

    I also loved how they 'incidentally' seized the entire e-mail database.

    "Hey guys, it's asking me here if I want to copy This Mailbox or All Mailboxes?"
    "Huh, strange. Try All Mailboxes. That should get us what we want."

    More PC gamers enjoy playing DayZ RIGHT NOW, despite the bugs and missing features, than they enjoy playing Assassin's Creed IV, Call of Duty: Ghost, Payday 2, and many other new "finished and bug-free" games.

    Really the only thing that that proves is that people play the latest games. Most everyone is undoubtedly already done with AC4 and Ghosts.

    That said, DayZ's success is kind of gobsmacking. And I'm a little worried that it means that more and more devs are just going to throw their alpha up for sale and expect me to fund the rest of development...

    I don't think "move some things around" is feasible for many people.

    Your desktop is a huge ugly bulk of wires likely buried somewhere it isn't seen.
    Your best TV is probably in your best decorated room and one of the centerpieces of your family.


    No, but the average consumer isn't the target for this technology anyway. Joe Schmoe console user isn't going to get a PC capable of playing games, then fiddling with a linux OS to get it to stream his PC games to his TV.

    The tech-savvy PC gamer who this is aimed at is more likely to use it, and for those guys the concept of moving things around isn't going to be as upsetting.

    But since this will stream to anything with SteamOS installed, my main concern is alleviated anyway.

    and the announcement grants this is an "as-yet-unproven studio" but Microsoft's Phil Spencer says this is "to be expected of us, as we tend to make pretty shit games anyway."
