Hmm, didn't know Michigan was a state that recently passed a law barring employers from demanding passwords from outside of work.

Good stuff Michigan, but now I won't be able to perform my "Thanks, but no thanks clowns" exit at an interview. Yes I'm apparently interviewing for a circus.

"There is ample evidence that violent video games, along with violent media of all kinds, including TV and movies portraying story after story showing a continuous stream of violence and killing, has contributed to increasing aggressiveness, fear, anxiety, and is desensitizing our children to acts of violence including bullying,"

I wonder if they cited their sources?

Spec Ops just looks like every other generic shooter though. Is there something I'm missing and is it worth picking up for 50% off on Steam?

It supposedly has an interesting 4th wallish message to it about violence. I picked it up on sale but haven't played it yet.

Even though it took 5 years, that article shows Wikipedia working the way it should. The article didn't get featured because the citations were shaky and few... Someone finally looked into it and determined the sources didn't exist and the article was deleted.

Had the article been more popular (and how could it be considering it described an event that didn't happen) it would've been corrected sooner.

Some of the most poorly written articles on the English Wikipedia are those that describe topics that are extremely obscure to anyone outside of the country/culture/language where they originate. The article described in the link most likely didn't exist on the Portuguese or Indian wikis.

Hey Mikey, you know what we really need? HL3. Why don't you get to work on that, buddy. That's a lot more pressing than VR headsets unless you guys are turning the internet into Snow Crash in the next couple of years.

They're not releasing HL3 until it has something revolutionary in it... You should be cheering them on in their VR and other peripheral pursuits if you want to see HL3 sooner.

When EA decides that Sim City has lived its course, you will never, ever be able to play it again.

Some people find this perfectly acceptable, apparently, and will defend EA vigorously over this concept. I find it fucking retarded and refuse to pay money to a "rent our software for as long as we see fit to allow you to rent it," scheme.

Creston

That's a bit over dramatic. If Sim City (or any game for that matter) ends up insanely popular and EA pulls the plug someone will find a way to hack together some sort of server emulator that will allow people to keep playing until their eyeballs bleed. In fact my bet is that if it is a worthwhile title someone will do it shortly after the game launches. And shortly after that EA will go apeshit and sue someone somewhere over it and it will have little to no effect.

It's becoming more difficult to do cracks like that as online is integrated into every aspect of the game. Look at Diablo 3... anyone have a way for me to play that singleplayer yet? Last I heard it was quite a hassle, with tons of missing functionality like the mobs just standing around doing nothing.

Quboid, I pretty much totally agree with your assessment but it doesn't take much effort to find out that Randi Zuckerberg was an executive at Facebook... CMO / marketing director. So the last sentences from both of your posts don't really add to your point.

Snuggle Truck'ness™
OMG, I just noticed... again... that I have snuggle truck. I think it was from an indie bundle. I seem to recall noticing this before and forgetting about it.

I noticed it because I saw a surprising amount of my Steam friends have snuggle truck.

Haha crap, we messed up the rules a bit didn't we? I figured since I didn't see any comments that nobody had got any gifts yet and that the chain had just started Prez -> Verno -> Me and I sent a gift to Batman... Dude's probably sittin on a mountain of gifts right now

We're still good, I couldn't figure out how to get his wishlist and his friends list is full so I didn't gift him anything. Other two gifts were for out of group people.

Ahh I thought you mean that somehow his gift queue was full or something. I got it now.

Anyone can invite, go nuts.

The super duper awesome Prez has gifted me Far Cry 3! Holy shit! Bro hugs man, appreciate it!

The equally super awesome SpectralMeat has gifted me Hard Reset! Thanks bro!

I am now playing it forward x3! Make sure you have your steam profiles set to accept invites. Oh and Batman, your list is full, just tried to gift you something

Merry Christmas everyone!

I wonder how many people actually are old enough to get the reference?
Was playing Torchlight 2 and came across Chester Copperpot's body and on him he had One Eye Willies Other Eye. Glad to know there are still a few good things that only us 'old folks' will get.

Goonies has a very wide age range of fans considering it's still played on TV all the time.

Losing loot you paid real money for upon death will get expensive quick, more expensive then I am comfortable with in this type of game.

I don't buy anything in any game. But I'm not really out much if I lose $13 on a game I play for more than 4 hours.

"More playable DayZ?" Please... It's nothing more than a cheap knock-off. It takes more than tossing zombies and rudimentary survival elements into your shitty F2P/P2W MMOFPS (War Inc.) to capture the essence of the most popular PC game mod since Counter-Strike. If you manage to enjoy playing The War Z, that's fine, whatever floats your boat... But don't delude yourself.

I haven't played either game but I've watched videos on both. DayZ is a mod that I would have to setup and install for a game that I don't own yet and don't really want. DayZ also appears to have strange esoteric controls that come from ARMA's simulation genre. I know the story here is false advertising and DayZ rip off but I'm just commenting on the gameplay. Looks like something I'd like to try and it doesn't have the apparent hassle of DayZ... Thus my bit you have quoted there.

Damn, I knew I should have picked this up last night. Especially after reading Batman's experience with it being a more playable DayZ, that's what I was getting from Biscuit's video too when I tuned out his bitching.

I just watched that Total Biscuit video - WOW. So it's as bad or worse than an unfinished free alpha mod (that it is an exact clone of, no less) yet it costs money AND there's a cash shop; you die extremely quickly and easily yet it has microtransactions for items that you lose as soon as you die; it runs like crap, looks pretty bland and outdated, and has terrible animations, and doesn't even have most of the standout features listed on the store page. Sounds like it can't miss!

Just finished watching it too. It does appear to be total shit but I think the gameplay actually looked great/interesting. He just happened to be terrible at the game. What's so hard to figure out about sight and sound indicators for stealth? I never played Day Z so I'm actually considering buying this crap... Despite that shameful business with the description. Also the trailer appears to be all glitched out on the Steam store now... and lol at those screenshots.

I actually don't mind diy open-world games like that (I spent a scary long time sneaking around the open world of Operation Flashpoint in some missions), but like TB said, if you are going to play a game that clunky and unfinished then why not just go with the free alpha mod? And as much as I love Steam. he also has a good point about Valve's selection process for what games make the service. It's shit to be honest.

This actually looks a bit more approachable than the mod in terms of both setup and gameplay. Also I would expect that this would have higher populations presently.

Again, simple fact of life: recruiters will google you, look at you on linkedin, and look at you on Facebook. When they have thousands of equally qualified applicants they'll go with the person that looks like they fit the culture. If there is nothing to judge the person by, that person will be skipped.

It pains me to hear people live in markets where thousands of people compete for a job and the decision comes down to online pictures of them using brand x instead of brand y. Rest assured I will fight the machine in their stead. Sic semper tyrannis.

I doubt they're checking out their pictures for what brands they're using... It's more akin to a well organized resume. If you took the time to clean up your social pages and make them presentable to recruiters they'll notice. If you and your page look sloppy (grammar, spelling, inappropriate pictures) they'll notice. And if you don't have one they'll notice.

Disce aut discede.
