That Ultraviolet video was AWESOME.

I'd like to see a variety of spectrums to see the differences.


Also, Discovery is going the way of TLC. TLC used to be called "The Learning Channel" but they changed it to just TLC and changed all their programming to shit Reality TV.
Discovery = Let's Discover how gullible our viewers are.
TLC = The Losers Channel. Programs about losers, all day every day
History = The Conspiracy channel.
H2 = Conspiracy Too; even the Conspiracy channel is a conspiracy

I miss the Hitler channel.

I like the concept of the game, but EA killed it with the microtransactions. Especially given the game's emphasis on consumables.

Yea seems like a cash grab. But playable Claptrap? I may need to buy this.
Ditto. I completely recognize it to be a cash grab, however playing as Claptrap just seems like fun.

Anyone who gave Robin Williams' daughter abuse will hopefully die of agonizingly painful ass-cancer in the next two weeks.

And as for Comcast, shit, they're just doing what SCOTUS told them to do. Why the fuck do FCC commissioners show up to shit like that? Oh wait, I forgot, they work for the cable industry.

And finally, OMG, Y512K!!!!

Somehow I'm still able to be surprised by how vile people can be, especially on the internet.
The lack of consequences means that people are free to act out their darkest desires. Sadly, making other people suffer is often pleasurable. The human brain does a good job separating "us" from "them" and then canceling out empathy for the latter.

He named his daughter after the titular character, and his son Cody's name is from Final Fight.
Robin and Zelda have even done some Nintendo commercials together, for anyone who hasn't seen them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bINUfbLV_0M

She's a cool cat, and not just because she's named Zelda.

The MKV support is a smart move by Microsoft.
A very smart move. Being able to play the files most people have is going to make the XB1 a far more enticing media box.

Damn those 2012 graphics to hell !!! Bring on the glorious graphical splendor of 2014!!

The PC version already had Direct3D 11 optimizations. So it's likely these are being ported over for the current-gen consoles and are the graphical upgrades the announcement speaks of.

Now DOTA 2 itself isn't running Source Engine 2, is it? It's a very low end DX9 game, so I'd think not.

Yep. Not even worth pirating. Deep Silver can go and suck a fat one after the Sacred 3 debacle. Fuck 'em.
Huh? What the heck does Deep Silver have to do with this?

any word if this is UE3 or UE4?
Considering they've been developing it for a couple of years now, my money is on UE3. But for the moment, this is all they're saying about tech questions: "Base technology related questions will be covered in our upcoming dev diary videos."

And of course others would argue that having vehicles and massive nuke guns isn't exactly a fair fight, which seems to be another one of their selling points in the trailer.

You have played UT2004, right? This is clearly a homage to that.

I was a bit leery on this at first, but boy does this trailer sell it. There's something oh so right about fragging someone while jumping down a waterfall...

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this to catch it once it's in testing.

Was just linked this image purporting to be a press release from San Diego police.

If true: In short, no attack happened. She slipped and fell near the pool, and injuries are not consistent with any kind of assault. She fell 6 feet.

EDIT: This article has been updated with the same info. Looks like the investigation is closed and they won't be releasing any more info.

Ah, that makes more sense. Kind of neatly fits all the pieces together, doesn't it? I hope this is the case. And I hope that any charges against the BF are dropped, assuming he even is her BF, something he's strenuously denied from the start. I wish her a speedy recover regardless.
29 on 17. That just looks all kinds of bad for him.

They argue that as the developer they should not be held accountable for the game and it's marketing, which were the responsibility of publisher SEGA.
That is admittedly a sound argument. SEGA would indeed be responsible for any advertising and any shenanigans thereof.

Obviously the solutions are: Sell regionally, with a reasonable price. None of this, it's $39 pounds here, 21 euro's there, and $19 in North America. And people won't want to find cheaper copies.
The problem is that when cheap gamers see how little buyers in underdeveloped nations such as Malaysia (and even Russia) are paying, they suddenly get angry and feel like they're paying too much. Except they have cause & effect reversed.

Underdeveloped nations get cheap games because the options for a publisher are simple: release it at a price the locals can afford or they'll just pirate it. It's the difference between making at least some revenue in that territory and making none.

However sales in those regions generally don't make or break a game, again because they're so low. Westerners paying full price for a AAA game is where the bulk of the revenue comes from. So without price discrimination there would either be (even more) rampent piracy in underdeveloped nations if everyone paid western prices, or game development would cease being viable as revenues would be too low if everyone paid underdeveloped nation prices.

Wasn't it the DRM featured in the game back then? I don't see EA spending time to remove it for a "free" release.
Bingo. This is the same DRM it always had and always will have. Even if EA was giving it away free forever - and they're not, they're still charging for it after this promo is up - it still wouldn't be worth their time to do a build and QA cycle for a new version without SecuROM. After all it's a free game.

They refuse to supply paid for, promised products and think it will result in people buying another copy just to be nice to them?

I can see why they're having problems.

From what I understand, Indie Royal bundle buyers already have a DRM free copy. So this is akin to Humble Bundle sales where the Steam key is distributed as a secondary freebie to buyers.

However even after reading through the entire post, I'm not sure why the developer has ceased distributing Steam keys. As far as I know the keys are free. So I am unsure whether it's a concern about time commitments or something else entirely.
