Fuck yeeeessss!

I practically squealed with glee when he flew that jet into the oil refinery. That looked so.effing.awesome.

I hear if you do that, the games sends a web service call to the NSA and you are put on a list.

Yep. LOL on the Blackguards, you can buy the whole franchise cheaper than you can buy version 2. Love Steam Sales logic from time to time.

Even better? If you own the first one and the addon, you cannot gift it. lol

Yep. Question: If I buy the whole thing as a gift, can I gift say BG2 back to myself and the rest elsewhere?

So what you are saying is that they were aiming for 100 million all along and that there is no way this game would have been made had it just been funded say....through the kickstarter??

Yep, like Oculus as well. It had no chance to actually deliver with just the Kickstarter money, even though they didn't tell you that.

For everything they've done so far, I'm really not seeing them getting closer to what I was actually paying for, and that's annoying as hell.

Read the monthly blogs by dept. They are all moving swimmingly forward in those.

News Comments > Steam Ending Paid Mods; Providing Refunds

Big picture, the discussion is too much about Skyrim which is designed to be modified by the community.

But focus on the rest of your games, a few more are modifiable, but most aren't. But chances are you wish more were modifiable with relative ease.

Well having a facility to potentially monetize outstanding efforts with a kickback to the original developers would give them more incentive to make their games more open to mods. That is the win.

In time the market would figure itself out. The XP, damage tweak, basic skin mods wouldn't have a cost to them, but would be very welcome too many, often. The keystone or total conversions would have a cost and deserve it to those that want it.

The win to "some" paid mods is making a game open to modding to begin with, a pay for section would drive more developers to make their games open instead of closed. You could still live in a free mod world, as most would still be free and ignore the ones that have a cost.

Obama is, unfortunately, just another in a long line of depressing and disappointing presidents that have moved this country in the wrong directions for decades. They all suck right now, they all take money, they all lie, they all do horrible things... pretending that one side is really worse than the other with the level of information that is available about everyone just makes you a troll.

Try not to fall so easily for this "us vs them" nonsense. You peddle it around here constantly (and I'm guilty, we all are... although I do think it must be a general mindset thing with you based on the way you can't seem to accept that games like D3 and PoE can exist in the same world, but I digress). "Everything liberal is bad" is a ridiculously stupid mentality, just as thinking the opposite is equally narrow minded and wrong. The truth lies far, far away from those extremes. That's exactly the game politicians are trying to get you to play, we bicker with each other over literally nothing so we aren't paying attention to what they are doing.

Bingo... While we do this, they are going to go park their boat, in their boat.

The bigger problem is the media gives him pass after pass with zero follow-up if they are pressured into reporting it. Bush, the media couldn't wait to pounce and re-pounce.

Mist be the stations you watch. There mainstream doesn't bash hard on any president. The lopsided couple of 24 hours stations, that is what they are one left and one right. The major network news doesn't go to deep into the problems and less editorial based. Fox and CNBC is all lopsided with all opinion and the opinion is already a known given. Those two stations are worthless and if that is what someone is coming to me with, they have no ammunition imo, they are brainwashed, don't know it, march to a given beat. They won't listen to any other perspective.

"We understand our own game's communities pretty well, but stepping into an established, years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating. We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly, even though we believe there's a useful feature somewhere here."

Right. However there will be a shitstorm no matter when they try it, but imo that one will be more free-loading related issues. In the middle here wasn't a good thing.

Who the fuck goes to a casino to read eula's. I'm good with not the millions, but as said the 10K. Sort of like you advertised it you should honor selling. Otherwise it comes out looking (if possible) there is no way to win. Even when you do, they just won't pay.

Yeah, lol, she went in looking to hit it big. Yes she expected a huge payout hitting slots. Who doesn't? That is the whole draw, when you hit you hit. LOL acting like she snuck one by them, it's fucking gambling, the whole point.

Regarding, sending it over to forensics, lol. A recent article came out about how law enforcement uses this and investigating the forensics, a lot of it is falsified, not even worked, just the conclusion they want. In time hopefully this comes out more, and how the defense can't get the same evidence to run it by separate forensics, you just have to go with what the prosecuters find, yah lol. Way too easy to be abused and it has, surprise.

GW has his faults, but Obama just is by far the most disingenuous, dividing, pompous snake I've seen in my lifetime.

I'm always baffled when I read stuff like this, and it makes me wonder what is going on in the author's mind. Obama from what I've seen has been an intelligent, thoughtful, and cautious president who played the hand he was dealt pretty well (the worst economic crisis since the 1920s, and an opposition party that had a scorched earth policy). If anything he tried too hard to come to bipartisan agreements only to have the goalposts moved again and again by an opposition party that had no interest in working with him.

All that being said, I've vehemently opposed some of his policies: drone strikes, whistleblower prosecutions, NSA spying expansion, and medical marijuana arrests, for example. And if there's one general complaint that could be leveled against him it is that on many issues he follows instead of leading, being too cautious.

Right. But I will add the things you list, the president just doesn't have total wand waving authority. All those depts if crossed enough will put the hit out and then we'll have a Lee Harvey, what I'm saying is it is politics, you have to know the battles you can fight. JFK said fuck it, I admire the shit out of him for that, but it cost him dearly. Yes I believe that, you have to read the room, there is power that has been there well before you and long after you, enjoy being a figurehead.

I'm not one for linking crap, cause nothing beats common sense - but since common sense is gone from so many these days, we have no choice often but to link stuff like this that is from 2014 instead of 2009.

Not mine I felt the last VP ran the country with a puppet. That has to be about as disingenuous as it gets. IMO we'll never really know what O-bomb'r could have been good or bad, the dude has been gridlocked down for political reasons/survival. They all use Exec Decisions, he's actually well under the norm, some say though the ones he's ok'd are broader range than others, that could be. IMO though he's backed into a corner over gridlock, to me he's so-so, not the devil like a Fox News'er makes him out to be, you'll survive, I'll survive, the country will survive just like the rest. It may just seem worse to some, but that is communication advancements. Shit bounces round quickly. I give him one big point... he can speak at a fair clip.

The present administration in Washington will likely go down in history as one of the dumbest, most backwards-looking administrations in U.S. history. The problem is that whenever the government steps in and interferes with private business on whatever pretext it uses, it's always for the sake of "the consumer." However, rarely can it be shown that the consumer benefits. How the TWC customers are supposed to benefit from continuing on as TWC customers beats me.

That's been going on well before Oh-bomb'r.

Example Enron, Sarbanes, laws disguised as protections for consumers, corporations read the new rules, several cut pensions. Who lost? Av Joe. Who did this happen under... not Oh-bomb'r, but the last guy.

I don't see this one so much as a Washington thing as more of, if you make new laws, companies review and if they need to change, they still change in their favor and blame the law. So what goes in as being a help, is twisted and used against us. Probably common in history.

Though there are some greedy people involved for sure, I find it very depressing that people asking to be paid for the work they put into a project are being called "greedy." That is seriously backwards.

Right and not the person wanting it for free because that is they way it has been, them being greedy in wanting something for nothing. Well Bob, were not all farmers anymore. That said, you best make a damn impressive mod if you want many people to buy it. Good news reviewing mod prices, I seen a lot of $.25, as said the market will speak.

I think part of the big problem here is that Valve, in an effort to jumpstart the marketplace, decided to go back and move pre-existing mods behind the paywall.

To me that is the biggest mess. The other part of "it used to be this way" that one doesn't cut it with me, especially on a technical board. That is how it goes. You are looking at only the negatives but not looking at potential positives. However doing this mid-stream with a released game is ultra messy.

About slot, reading comments, what I like (not really) is how when this happens in Europe the person seems to have more rights than in the now over-rated USA rights. She got shit, Europe, sided with the people.
