Sony really gave it to Microsoft sans lube last night, I haven't seen an owning like that since the last time I watched Sepharo beat up my server in CS.

Hah, wasn't expecting to see that at the beginning of this thread, thanks

I don't give a shit that machines are storing and analyzing my digital life.

What I do care about is how that information is used against me. I'm much more upset that there were cases brought against the government concerning this spying and that they denied the data existed. Make the program public (thanks Mr. Snowden) and give the citizen a chance to fight against misuse of this data when it occurs.

If someone sees you on a message board planning a terrorist attack and they report it to the police, a warrant is obtained and they begin monitoring your communications and building a case. You're innocent until proven guilty. You get a lawyer, you get a jury of your peers. Throw out this secret tribunal shit and be up front with the evidence, how it was obtained and why that was justified. I'm willing to allow this process to begin with a program instead of a concerned informant but there has to be accountability, oversight, and regulation... it has to be fucking voted on by our elected "representatives" and we have to have our day in court.

Kind of surprised more isn't being made out of this being on the Source engine. I was definitely not expecting that from Respawn Entertainment.

Speaking of long series that may or may not have lost their way...

I finally finished up Stephen King's Dark Tower (including the new one which happened to coincidentally line up chronologically for me). I wasn't as disappointed with the ending as the internet seems to think I should be. But maybe that's because I had heard ahead of time and so I was prepped for something more terrible than it was.

My favorite part of the series was Lud. I could read a whole series just taking place in Lud I think.

Reading A Canticle for Leibowitz now.

I think I spent way too much time at YTMND because there seems to be very little that doesn't remind me of a YTMND page.

Spoiler text:

Kept hearing people say shit like "Just wait until the Red Wedding" and still as I sat there watching the wedding I had no idea what was about to happen. Then after the initial firing squad "Oh I guess that's why they call it the Red Wedding." Then just about every character stands back up somehow only to be killed again.

I'm not going to bother reading the rest of your post.

I'm not sure how much of it you actually read, but it's clear from your last post that you are an apologist for bad / disrespectful behavior. The punishment for putting other people's lives at risk because of your own stupidity is supposed to be a world of hurt. If it's easy, people have an incentive to just keep doing it.

Stop making excuses for your loser friends and family.

Hilarious. I knew there would be somebody who would jump to the "Don't do illegal things!" response when simply discussing the aftermath. There's always one.

"I don't agree with capital punishment."
"WHAT ARE YOU SOME KIND OF MASS MURDER ADVOCATE?!"

Stop making excuses for your loser friends and family.

Real classy.

Is that any different anywhere? The contractors are always the outsiders... that's kind of the point. Yeah if you're the best contractor and you mesh well with the team you might get hired on as a full employee with benefits.

I have a bit of a bias against low (and some supposedly high) level software contractors. I feel like they couldn't make it as a full employee somewhere and end up at the contract house. Now they hop from company to company crapping up the code. Sounds harsh but I kind of question the intelligence of someone choosing to sign up with a contract house. Though I do realize that's the only option sometimes (gotta eat) and it's not inconceivable that I'll end up at one someday.

I'm not going to bother reading the rest of your post. I'm obviously not advocating any of that behavior. All I said is that it isn't uncommon. When someone gets a DUI these days they are in for a world of hurt legally and economically and for a very long time (I'm not debating whether or not the punishment is justified). You need to be absolutely flawless for the next few years including in aspects of your life that non-offenders don't have to deal with. All I said is that is made all the more difficult when your being hounded by paparazzi and what amounts to the abuse of the entire world/internet. It's likely that you have people in your life (coworkers, friends, family) that have dealt with legal problems in their lives that you know nothing about... because it's a private matter and they don't want you knowing. Amanda Bynes does not have that luxury, it's all public all the time. I wrote my post knowing nothing but her arrest record, now seeing her crazy comments it's more likely that she has a mental illness and it now makes a bit more sense why they took her to the psych ward.

I backed just for the 2P doc. Told them if they offer a bluray like they did with the previous KS and Fortnight, I'd toss in more. And reading the comments, I wasn't the only one. I find them fascinating...

And, oh hey, a game...cool! :)

Haha that's exactly what I looked for first... Am I getting a 2PP docu out of this? Yes? Sold!

Haha yeah.
As I read that sentence I thought it was sarcasm.

Weirdly, in (modern) great Adventure games the strong female character really seems to be the trope: April Ryan, Zoey, Kate Walker, Rosella. In both Quantic Dream games (Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain) you play segments as strong female secondary character.

I feel bad for Amanda Bynes... She's getting this reputation but I think it's undeserved. She's not at Lohan's level yet. The things she's been in trouble for are no different than what ordinary people get in trouble for. Cell Phone while driving, DUI... Then they suspend her license so she of course gets a ticket for driving on a suspended license. Once you're in that system it's difficult to escape and being hounded by paparazzi certainly isn't going to make it easier. I have friends and family with similar rap sheets and I know it's not easy even when photographers aren't chasing you anywhere you go.

I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on these latest charges. The doorman called the police for smelling marijuana... what? And then they answered that call with multiple officers... what? Then they put her in a psych ward... what?


Have you read the shit she's been saying? She can go jump off a bridge...

Nope, hadn't read any of that... Ahh that's what I get for sticking to the cliff notes (arrest record).

Consider 0x10c Minecraft 2.
Sandbox in space.

There's a side documentary about Scrolls included with the Minecraft documentary.

Here it be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8atE70UgCPY

Notch is not involved... well beyond giving his buddy a job and funding his game with Minecraft profits.

Minecraft would be well worth it at $100... Just sayin'.

Granted, that probably isn't the case with this new one, though I don't know much about it, specifically.

Value is relative. I tired Minecrap for a few hours and I wouldn't pay $1 for it. It was only a success because it became something of a meme like Angry Birds. 'What, you're not on board the XYZ train with everyone else? What's wrong with you?!'

You've already been called on it but I'll add on anyway.

Minecraft isn't "only a success because it became something of a meme". It's a success because it's a great game that appeals to all demographics for a variety of reasons. It went viral because of word of mouth and that word of mouth was "You gotta try this awesome game, it's only $15."

You don't like Minecraft, fine. I don't like 2D sidescrollers, that's also fine. But when you belittle the game as some sort of fluke you're totally wrong.

So what do the female employees look like? Are there any?

Women in electronics/IT?

I don't think they exist.
There are a few. Just a few compared to males.

I wouldn't really consider the Apple Store electronics/IT ... It's a retail job.

Software development is historically seen as male dominated but our current pool of of developers is over 1/3rd female. My daily team meeting is 7/16. Though our one American female developer left a few years ago. The 7 women on my team now are Indian, Taiwanese, and Russian. Hey ladies, do you want a job when you graduate? Go CompSci!

what possible reason could they have for wanting to make huge design and technology changes to the game now?? after so many years?

Honestly why do companies do this?? I am sure Titan is fine the way it is and heck its probably awesome. I guarantee you they do not need to change the game design or the technology.

The question is what clueless suit wearing douche-bag walked in and made such a retarded decision.

You can't be that naive.

The suit walked in said let's ship this pile of shit already and the one honest guy with ballz of steel stopped the freight train. Their only redemption is they haven't married it to a massive expensive marketing campaign with a vague release date.

Like I said yesterday, it's more like a suit walked in and said "This needs to be F2P, rework the economy to make it so." Then the honest guy with the balls of steel told him they couldn't just slap that onto the existing game ( la D3) so he told them to start over and you might as well make it work for PS4 and Xbox1 while you're at it.
