As a developer, you should not nurture a pattern in your studio where you release an unfinished game and then take a year or more to get it into a playable and decent state.

OK, you did it once and then again. Does it really mean you need to go for a hat-trick? How can anyone be proud to manage a dev studio like this?

Not to mention the stuff that will never get fixed like the horrible character models, less than grade-school level voice acting and the useless co-pilot who can't actually DO anything.

I don't know about this case specifically, but aren't games usually pushed out half-baked by publishers, not devs?

Oh ya, they have a timer that resets the zone if you don't enter it for 8 minutes.

It does take some familiarity as there's certain zones you'll wanna pop back in asap, others that have portals that it doesn't really matter. But that was something they tweaked much in beta and 8 minutes is more than enough (as long as you know the timer exists).

I'll give it another shot, but 8 minutes is awfully short to portal back to town, sell your shit, and get back. I was up to level 20-something, and it happened to me 3 times in a row, and I just didn't relish the thought of having to replay each level 2-3-4 times in order to progress.

Put 30 hours into the beta but haven't been back. Was too annoyed by being gone from a level too long to sell my stuff and having that level reset.

Not sure what you mean JD. The vast majority of PoE's population are in the 4 month leagues, the standard and HC leagues tend to be used as experimentation and something to do when the 4 months are in transition.

I have all my wealth and high chars in HC, but only ,load them up on new season tree resets to get a feel for how I'll plan the builds.

I think we're talking about different things? If I played a level, it would reset, and I'd have to fight all the monsters again.

I feel so sorry for Microsoft that they can't pay people what it takes to fill those vacant jobs. Maybe if they didn't throw away $2.5 billion on Minecraft...but aren't they sitting on a ton of cash?

Or is this really about depressing wages by bringing in temporary workers from other countries?
At work we had a long standing policy against hiring visa workers. That changed recently and one of the managers wants to hire someone wrong for the job because he's on a visa and "is desperate so will work dirt cheap. "

Glad practical fx making a comeback. Watched Alien and Aliens recently and both totally hold up barring a fee weak fx shots. Compare to Oz where the CG monkey looked so fake the whole time and took me totally out of the film. In 20 years people will still be watching the former but not the latter.

The loss of Firefly is still painful to me.

you know, i didn't watch it when it was first on the air, but i have seen it since and the movie, and honestly i don't see what the big deal is. but then again i'm a notorious whedon hater. i've never gotten him. i've always felt his material was contrived and superficial masquerading as complex. /ducks

I want you to dig deep, really deep. And I want you to ask yourself, "Self, have I a soul? Or am I a heartless, unfeeling zombie?"

Now, answer honestly man.

Jesus Christ. Tom's latest podcast uses Mr. Sandman as the intro song??? As in, Good Night??? At the 1:20:30 mark he discusses his cancer. Stage 4 hypopharyngeal cancer, accounting for his voice change. The Dr.s goal is to completely cure his cancer and he's been receiving radiation treatment.

As a cancer survivor myself, I truly fucking truly wish Tom the best. Cancer is no joke, and hope his treatment is as painless and easy as possible.

Wait, wait, wait. Tom Chick has fucking cancer? When the fuck did this happen?

Looks like he raised $18K, which is a decent amt if you have insurance to help. What kind of cancer does he have? Throat cancer from fucking podcasting too much? Finger cancer from typing too much? Eyeball cancer from gaming too much? What the fucking fuck???

Jesus fucking Christ. Stage fucking 4??? Are you kidding me?

I don't expect people to live forever, but I also don't expect them to get stage fucking 4 cancer when they are in their 40s. God Fucking Dammit.

AHEM.
*readies himself*

I have seen this trailer now, and I will say this. I enjoyed what I saw for multiplayer. I admit, this game has me interested thus far.

Do with me what you will, but be gentle.
You may begin.

I think it looks like the best CoD in a while. Not that I'd pay more than $20 for it.

My daughter and the twins would play this game for hours on end, all three of them at one keyboard. I think I still have the old 5 1/4 disk stuffed around somewhere with the DOS version on it.
That's what I was hoping for. Something to play the kids. This looked too gory though if I recall the first trailer.

"Canadian Royal Telecom Commission?"

After doing further reading it doesn't seem like the CRTC is all bad. That being said it seems silly they are going after Netflix. Who next, Vivid or XVideos?

Also going after Netflix is like going after chocolate or bikinis. Who doesn't like chocolate or bikinis? Or chocolate bikinis?
