Did any of the people she slept with review her game? I haven't seen allegations of that.

Somehow you then missed the whole premise, because that was the main story and the reason for the article. Not that I care much at all, just more blah blah.

Yes, I saw the lengthy blog. I did not see proof. The girl slept with five people, most of whom were journalists.
Nathan whatever was the most discussed, and he seems to have not only not reviewed her game but only mentioned it twice.

And, frankly, do you guys not think other industries have people that sleep with journalists? I'd imagine Erin Andrews has slept with a few athletes. Of course, to many of the men here, that would be her using her body to get access to exclusives, not, you know, the mirror of here and athletes using their bodies to get coverage.

Well your reply was quite a change from what you originally stated:
"Did any of the people she slept with review her game? I haven't seen allegations of that."

Yes that was the story. Now proof of that actually happening, perhaps or not, I didn't go to the one dudes blog and read it, that would be caring too much.

But why is it of concern to us. Anything that taints gaming reviews I have no problem that being brought to our attention. It's a slap to the industry and if we care about publication ratings for anything, corruption is corruption. Now am I shocked by this? No. But I'll take it as good info to know to then consider source in future, sure.

RPG or not, those fuckers need to learn to manage projects properly and post more accurate release windows. It is ridiculous that a developer with their kind of experience can be that far off the original schedule.
Or they did this intentional to get more monies from KS by making it sound for people that what they are pledging for is not too far off.
Either way it is highly unprofessional and does not serve to build confidence or trust in these fuckers' abilities. Quite the contrary.
I, for one, won't be pledging for their next project. They can go and fuck themselves, especially Sawyer with his pretentious holier than thou 'tude can stuff it big time if he's not able or willing to treat pledgers with respect.

Lots of people like Obsidian, but I've seen a lot of their mistakes to. Now we can see it wasn't all the Publisher when it comes to them, they can't budget time and money well, even yet.

Wow, for someone y'all hate, y'all sure are expending a lot of time and energy talking about him.

Haven't you figured out by now that we all like bitching??

Right, denying that is ignoring the room, which if someone out in la la land needs clarification, it is knowing your surroundings and using some common sense on how things work and adapting to it or staying completely away from.

Editorial.

I may be a simple man and no very little of Phil "The Fish" Fish, but what I do know is you do have to have the right understanding and demeanor to function on the internet. Certain personality types simply cannot function or compartmentalize it for what it is. This isn't a one on one conversation with all the propers involved. It's raw and cold in some places, pc in others. As always you have to know hot to read the room, that in itself is a department of intelligence in each of our heads. Like anything some have that ability and some don't, those that flame out hard on the Gore Internets seem to lack the overall wholeness of room.

Oh he'll be back. I think he's just one of those people that needs to HEAR that he's wanted back from the public.

Makes you kinda pine for Derek Smart, doesn't it?

Yes, but just in thought, just in thought.

7 ways to improve Wifi for home - instead of Repeater use a Powerline, in most cases and for a lot less you'll get better performance this way.

I thought Red Dead Redemption was the second best western made, and the best was Outlaws.

"Hey Marshall!"

No Outlaws wasn't better, come on...

"51% are putting their personal data at risk by sharing usernames and passwords with friends, family and colleagues"

Well I know my wife's, my wife knows mine and I know some of Jr's and that makes me a statistic here under the term family as is this is a bad thing sharing with those.

If I were to share with a friend I'm 99.999% certain that this isn't the big security scare they sell us day to day and stealing our identity. My house being robbed is more of a threat to me in a case like that. Sell the fear.

It's a great FPS. I just found the inventory gamepad centered UI to be very frustrating. That said I don't understand most of the hate for the game. They did a great job with BL2. It was a big improvement over BL1 I thought. So what it's not a graphical wonder. It's fun and they got so much else right with the genre.


Yeah if it were as good as BL2 with a fixed inventory that would make me just wait for the first sale.

MS should be focusing on how to stop these additional add-ons when installing programs. They've clean up Win 7 really well, but this is still a huge thorn. I assume they want to be known as a reliable O/S, they've already lost millions to Apple prior to Win 7 and these things just keep people away. Ask has the nerve to put their logo on their HQ as if the public likes them, they should be underground for being the weasels they are.

Watching as much of the video as I could.

Reminds me of the movie The Warriors.

He says something (Chris=Cyrus) and the audience goes bonkers except the Warriors. We are the Warriors.

Sounds good, but talk is cheap.

Yep. Not sure why gamers even ask this question any more, it's always the same. But whomever continue your hate for Steam, I also assume that is why Galaxy is coming, but then isn't that just Steam with a new name?
Galaxy has no DRM. At all. Not even optional for publishers to screw around with. No regional restrictions, no bullshit. Just a download client with benefits. Steam, on the other hand, is DRM with benefits

Well then aint that going to be a little slice of heaven?

98% of passwords aren't cracked they are simply obtained and used.

If it were somebody trying to actually crack a password in the real, if the password is much more than password... they only have so many attempts before being locked out and if said system gives you unlimited attempts esp in a short period, that system is more a problem than anything else.

So I say stop with the fear. Most passwords are obtained because hackers steal the entire DB and hack that.
