This isn't cool, and the guys who attacked him are far worse than Phil himself.

For those who weren't paying attention, that's from the polytron website.

"Don't fuck with /v/"

And people wonder why game devs rarely talk to the public anymore (wait, there was a .plan update in 2013!?) and why so many devs absolutely loathe the loud minority of their fanbase.

At the same time, Phil's also a fedora wearing jackass, so...

Lot of stuff going around about this being a false flag. Plus, "leader of 4chan.org and Anonymous"? Yeah. That sounds believable.

I mean, he's a jackass, but I'm guessing /v/ has similar MRA jackasses as Reddit is known for, although worse, so I wouldn't be surprised if they not only do it but try to blame Fish for doing it. This is the same (admittedly very diverse) board that, for a while, was creating fake twitter accounts of minority females in order to try to discredit the viewpoint of a fairly large segment of the population.

Basically, they're scum. Fish is also scum. Shame innocent customers are caught up in a war of entitled morons.

For the third time, the people following this person have used that term to describe themselves and no one fucking cares because there is a much bigger story going on here that you are ignoring because its inconvenient to your views.

1) I still think you're wrong that anyone describes themselves as such
2) How is this story "inconvenient?" One person has some serious emotional problems. One person. So what? How is an entire viewpoint aimed at 53% of the population get shattered by one person? One person that, prior to this, was never even discussed on this website. Seriously, you accused me of being on the wrong side of her editorials, but she's not once been mentioned on Blues prior. I'd never heard her name. I'm guessing you probably hadn't, either. Who fucking knew, or cared, who she was?

Hell, even Urban Dictionary defines "social justice warrior" as a pejorative term.

I don't think anyone uses it as a badge of honor. It's just a buzzword people try to use to defeat arguments. Kind of like how many people here don't believe you can think women deserve any kind of fair treatment unless you're trying to sleep with them.

And the same people come to the rescue. Beamer is so predictable I can write his posts for him. Maybe you guys would like it better at Kotaku or RPS.

Wait. I'm the predictable one? You're the one writing all the constant sociopathic libertarian stuff.

Sounds like deflection because you've landed on the wrong side of several Zoe Quinn related editorials and other bullshit that is now coming to light.

Have I?
I've never heard her name before.

In a typical zenimax greed move, they only put the dlc on sale for 50% off. This is the same way they try to force people to buy their games twice i.e. goty editions.

Why are they obligated to discount it more than 50%? How is a 50% off sale not generous on DLC?

I think, at 75% off, zenimax makes no money, too. That would make some dlc $.99. Valve takes 30%. Credit cards eat the rest. Stream isn't well set up for dollar transactions.

Some people are so sensitive.

In his defense, when you live on the 36th floor, you get used to walking around the house in your skivvies and not worrying about anyone seeing you.

That happened here in Seattle. A woman called the cops due to a drone buzzing around outside her apartment.

Which is fine, except the cops came and figured out the drone was actually a block away, never coming closer than 500 yards, and buzzing over a construction site.

Not sure how arrogant you need to be to see a drone five football fields away and think that it's spying on you specifically even though you're in a 32 floor apartment building.

SpectralMeat wrote on Aug 21, 2014, 12:41:
I think annual or semi annual games like CoD, BF or sports titles will have the season pass that gets you all the dlc.

That makes sense - those are games whose sales can be predicted, so they know how much DLC they'll make.

Something like Borderlands 2 only committed to 4 things, but the game was so much more popular than expected that they kept kicking out more and more DLC. Had it flopped, they'd only be on the hook for those 4.

You can properly price a season pass when you already know what it will contain.

They are punishing early buyers. I got ripped off during the summer sale, bought the season pass and then I found out that it wasn't a "season pass" and that the GOTY would be the ideal choice for just 1 more. I only wanted the Tiny Tina's addon, so no big deal.

In short: Logic calls out buying the season pass if you own the base game, but you pay more for less... and you also payed more back in the day.

...and I must agree with some posts here, Borderlands 2 is a overrated borefest.

The season pass was always very specific that it included 4 things. It is on you for not reading. The season pass never said it was all DLC.

GOTY ALWAYS contains more content than what you can buy on Day 1, and is ALWAYS cheaper. You weren't even an "early buyer" if you bought it in the summer sale, the game is what, 2 years old?
I know, I should've read... but its VERY misleading, in other games: Season Pass = Everything

I don't think that's true, either. It is for episodic games, like The Walking Dead, but I can't find a single other game it's true for. Mortal Kombat seems to be one of the first to do it, and the Season Pass was only 4 fighters. More DLC came out. Lots of other games have preorder bonuses not in the Season Pass but available later.
Wait, it looks like Rockstar's Season Passes have everything, but that isn't true for any other game I'm looking at.

Don't late buyers always get more for less? That's the trade off of being a late buyer - you play it long after everyone else, and when the community is gone and people may no longer be talking about the game, but you get it cheaper.

No, they typically get the same for less. I supported the game at release by buying it (almost) full price with the season pass. The GOTY includes everything from the season pass and more.

But couldn't you but that other stuff that was clearly not part of the season pass?

I still don't get your complaint. That some dlc want in the season pass? They said that was true from the start. That the goty was more than just the season pass? So what? I genuinely don't get your outrage here.

Yes, and if you don't stop playing for the entire weekend - yes.

It's $5. Not going to kill you to buy it if you get an entire weekend's worth of fun.

Borderlands 2 4-pack is more expensive per game than buying each one sepparately (5 vs 22.5).

Bravo, Randy. No wonder Aliens Colonial Marines turned out like that: you can't do even basic math.

Must be a Steam Europe thing, because here it's $5 and $15.

Wow, $60? I could have sworn they said at one point it wasn't going to be full priced - maybe I confused it with another title.


Nope. They said probably cheaper. Didn't promise it, just said probably.
edit - Randy said he wanted it priced like an expansion, but it wasn't Gearbox' decision, it was the publisher's.


This is a clusterfuck at this point. If it's good, it'll be through dumb luck. It's a formula they have down pat, but there are so many warning signs.

If it's good, I'll buy it, but I'm just not expecting to.

And as it comes out this guy was a punk. A well known thug. With people like him it's usually a question of when, not if someone will shoot him.
That isn't to say the situation in Ferguson isn't fucked up, but that guy was a career criminal in training. Can't say I feel the least bit sorry for him.

I think you're analysis is correct, you can include Trayvon Martin in it as well. Speaking of... there is a lot of parallels between Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin; starting with the media, race hustlers like Al Sharpton being involved to finally the truth being told about what happened way after the incident happened.

This kid did a strong-arm robbery. True. But he was about to start technical school To say he was a thug, a punk, and someone was guaranteed to shoot him seems idiotic and a monumental rush to judgment.

And to say Trayvon Martin was, too? Jesus. I don't even see how that can be construed as anything other than racism. "But I'm judging him based on actions" you'll say. Or you'll say "it's about class, not color." How the hell you can say Trayvon was bound to be shot to death, or why you even feel the need to focus on Al Sharpton when no one other than whining racist white people ever mention his name, is beyond me.

Evolution doesn't hardwire you to be obnoxious about your sexuality, that's a personal choice.

But it's a whole lot easier to say you have no choice than actually control yourself.

Look who it's coming from, though. The guy swings so wildly from extreme liberal to extreme conservative. While it's certainly no problem to not fit a particular bucket, he doesn't have a single political viewpoint that doesn't play to his favor. Every single opinion he has is about whatever is most immediately beneficial for him personally. The selfishness is awe inspiring. Of course, when people here do have an opinion that doesn't benefit them personally, the "social justice warrior white knight!" brigade comes out, so whatever.
