Be careful about using Tiger Balm blue. If it's actually RSI and the nerve/tendon is actually inflamed, the heat of the Tiger Balm will really only exacerbate the problem. You'd be better off icing it.

I wonder how many lines of dialogue the Witcher 3 has. I think Kaer Morhen alone has 3 million. (Just finished that section, and holy fuck, EPIC is about the only word I can come up with.)

As for Win10 on the bone, eh, without Kinect it's not really gonna do much from a spying perspective. (You know the NSA was fucking PISSED when MS started selling the bone without the SpyBuddy.)

good stuff
Written by a lawyer, it's in common English and explains kickstarter liabilities using Molyneux’s GODUS game as the test subject.

If we get laws that go to the extent to completely safeguard idiots from spending thousands of dollars on pictures of pretty spaceships, the entire crowdfunding platform will just die off, because no dev would want to take on money that comes with such conditions.

Plenty of crowdfunded games have done just fine, and who knows, SC may still do just fine. It seems doubtful, but it's possible. But even if it tanks and burns, nobody forced people to give tens of thousands of dollars to a guy for fucking PICTURES OF SPACESHIPS. Trying to create laws to 'safeguard' against retardery like that is just ridiculous.

They're putting an awful lot of work into it. Should it have been done this way already? Of course. Being mad that they're righting the ship is like making fun of the fat guy at the gym.

By that logic, just as long as a publisher is willing to patch something, we should never complain at the state that something is launched.

Sorry, but that doesn't fly.

I am now thoroughly convinced Star Citizen is a scam. How? Three main factors...

It's not a scam. It's just a terribly mismanaged project.

The absolute LEAST Cloud Imperium can do to negate growing criticism is to have independent auditors go through their finances going back to the Kickstarter launch. This report should be public record....

... Backers aren't accredited investors so that means CIG isn't required by the SEC to provide any financial reports.

You already answered yourself there. If I'm Chris Roberts, I'm not opening books for nobody. Why subject yourself to a witch hunt?

2. Crowdfunded companies exist in this weird blend between an organization who can sell virtual items and ships as "pledge rewards" but without the liabilities of actual products.

Errr. This "blend" you're talking about is called the real world. Maybe you live in China or something, but in the free world, you're allowed to sell whatever you want to sell, and if people want to pay you for that, great.

If I want to charge people $50 for me to spit in their soup, and they're willing to pay me for it, awesome. And if I want to do so virtually, and just make pretty artwork of me spitting in their soup, and people want to pay me for it, great. As long as I'm upfront that all I'm giving you is a piece of artwork about me spitting in your soup, the law couldn't give two shits.

So because CIG exists like this they can operate with absolute impunity and do anything they want as long as they make it appear like they're "working" on the product. CIG could perpetually crowdfund Star Citizen for the next 10 years and this would be legal because there are no official laws that say they can't.

Well duh. Of course not. What kind of laws do you imagine there should be? PEOPLE VOLUNTARILY GIVE THE GUY MONEY FOR PRETTY PICTURES OF SPACE SHIPS. He's not blackmailing them or forcing them or anything. He says "Here's a picture of a pretty spaceship. It's limited! Give me $400 and at some point maybe you'll be able to 'fly' this pretty 'spaceship' in this persistent 'universe' that I'm creating." And the money keeps coming in from people with either a lot of disposable income or very poor judgment with regards to the value of money. Either way, none of that is illegal.

This is why laws need to be passed to protect consumers from crowdfunding fraud, first and foremost.

No. We need laws to keep the likes of Comcast raping its customers who have no choice but to deal with Comcast due to Comcast's monopoly in their area. We need zero laws to deal with companies that sell pretend items for pretend universes and get money from people who are insane enough to plonk down massive bundles of cash for it.

There should never be laws to try to stop stupid people from being stupid because once we start there, it'll never end.

Also dude, you got your refund. They were nice enough to give you back every single dime you ever gave them. You'd think you'd stop with this inane crusade of yours, even if only as a "Hey, thanks for giving me back all the money that I stupidly gave you for pictures of pretty spaceships."

Continued improvements and bug fixing for a Windows 7 specific memory issue that occurs on configurations with 8GB of system RAM and some NVIDIA GPUs during extended game play

Well, who on earth has THAT as their gaming PC configuration???! {/sarcasm}

Thanks for spending literally zero minutes testing your game, WB.

The Witcher 3 is fucking amazing. 30% off is a steal for a game this good.

It's in my top 5 of all time, and it may even be top 3. It's better than Skyrim.

Egosoft will never, ever, get another dime from me.

Eh, they've done a pretty good job patching this turd up, they gave away some meaty DLC/expansion stuff for free, so it's not a case where they got their money, flipped you off and ran away forever. So I'm willing to look at their next game.

That said, I'm never again pre-ordering another game of theirs. Their next one, if it's any good, I'll get when it's on sale for 20 bucks somewhere.

Concur wholeheartedly with what Verno said. Most likely you feel the pain in your knuckle, but the injury itself is likely somewhere in the middle of your arm.

See if one of these guys is in your area. I've had my chronic RSI under treatment with one for years. Usually it's two or three treatments when I've had a time of very heavy use, and the pain is gone again until the next time I overburden it.

Doing muscle workouts is definitely advised. The stronger that muscle, the more abuse it can take before it starts to hurt.
