What makes you think "Samir Please" is fake? Seems like a really odd thing to fake. I'd seen a longer one before, this one has been edited down more.

Here's the youtube description:
"The video was taken during the 2013 Rally of Coimbatore, part of the Indian National Rally Championship, on-board the Mitsubishi Evo 10 driven by Samir Thapar and co-driven by Vivek Ponnusamy. The full length version is spread over 3 separate videos and 40 odd minutes and it has been edited into this 3:50 laughter filled-clip."

The decline of any medium is directly related to its celebrification (it's a word if I say it is!). Once the person becomes the selling point, as opposed to the product, the focus of the medium shifts from endeavors that improve it to endeavors that expose it.

The fact that anyone would consider a game designer a "star" or celebrity simply cheapens the entire genre. There is a difference between someone who is admired, respected, or acknowledged for his accomplishments and someone who is a gaming celebrity. The bigger the names get, the smaller the games get...

Not entirely sure if it's true, but well said anyway.

Is this the first preorders have been available? I have a suspicion that I already bought this and forgot.

in other news, games that involve programming computers might only be fun for computer programmers...

That may be, but damn I was thinking it was going to be fun.
Disappointed.

I liked Papers Please enough to return to it 3 separate times yesterday... That never happens.

It's always comical how the one bit of info that I don't verify is the one that I'm dinged on. I might need to write down the issuing cities on a real piece of paper next to me since I have no memory and checking the book is a time sink.

It's greed plain and simple, it's not like most players don't know the real names (although, I didn't know the current model of the AH-1 is Viper, and no longer Cobra/Super).
Brings me back to when Counter Strike changed the names of the weapons...

It's funny with the latest update to add the inventory and drop system Valve has gone back to the "real" names for the first time in years.

My car before was a 2001 Mercury Sable which was a rebadge/variant of the Taurus. I like big sedans but also wanted speed and luxury... so Taurus SHO was perfect, other option would've been a Lincoln MKS but it's slower.

I also love driving. Back in April I picked up a 2013 Taurus SHO with the performance package. I basically got it so I could drive like a wild man and not have to worry so much about the car. Some people don't like that adaptive steering or whatever it's called but I like being able to go into a sharp turn at 50 and have the car take care of it Also now if somebody's driving is bothering me I can pass them in a moment regardless of my or their current speed. It's a heavy car but it's a beast 3.5L 365hp twin-turbo, 0-60 in 5.2 . Also while I didn't get the luxury model upgrades (it was actually a little hard to get a package that had the performance but not the luxury upgrade) it's still extremely nice inside. Out of all the cool ancillary shit it does/has, one of my favorites is the adjusting seat and wheel. So when I turn the car off the wheel goes up and the seat goes back and then when I get back in the opposite happens, push the start button and it slides me into position. It can also hold multiple settings like that if there's more than one driver. Makes it easier for me to get out of the car with my work bag and usually my lunch/dinner all in one go.

How does it do that?

After around 30 days, the steam icon in the system tray disappears and you can't launch your steam games anymore without going online (then going back into offline mode again, if you want to stay offline).

Never knew that. That's pretty shitty, I assumed you could verify once and be offline forever if that's what you wanted to do.

It's an internet "problem" not a gamer one.
And I say "problem" because the solution is to simply ignore it.

News Comments > Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Arms Deal Update
3. Re: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Arms Deal Update Aug 15, 2013, 21:03 Sepharo
 
It's the same system they have in TF2 but presently just for weapon skins without attribute modifiers. Though you can tell that's probably on it's way because they gave everybody a silenced M4A1 and a silenced USP which you need to swap from the inventory into your loadout slots and those guns do have accuracy/dmg/rate modifiers.

3rd party gun game mods actually won't work if you've swapped in the new guns (not sure for skins since I haven't unlocked any yet) because the mod won't let you level up getting kills with the silenced usp. Assuming because the mods work off of python scripts that read the event log so seeing "USP-S" instead of "P2000" it won't register a successful level/kill.

Paying people a dollar an hour is also better business sense but luckily they're prevented from doing that.

There are some other issues with business taxes or health care regulations, etc., which force a lot of companies to hire ZERO full-time employees outside of management.

They're not forced to do that. They do it because it's more profitable for them.

Skip down to about the 10th paragraph of this article to see how this anti-Walmart takes care of its employees.

Talk about self serving. Not getting credit hurts integrity? How about gaining integrity in ways that matter to gamers! Like stop giving glowing reviews to games published by advertisers. Like asking tough questions when you talk to publishers/developers instead of sounding like you have a cup in your hand: "Please sir, may I have somemore."

Game journalist behave like game publishers can crush them. Game journalists need to behave like THEY can make or break games. Even if it is not true, that should be their approach.

That's a sensational headline for what amounts to a smackdown on a meritless class action attempt.

"So wait, you're telling me that a computer needs to "read" the bits in my email to send it across the line? A program analyzes my incoming email to determine if it's spam? Outrageous! No algorithm needs to know my personal business!"
