I'll just get it off a torrent when it does come out.

WTF is up with the tweet spooge? This image was impossible to convey in encapsulating text or just a straight up link?

It seemed like using the Twitter embed was the easiest way to provide the context for this. I take it this has turned out to be a giant problem?

I like it. It certainly draws my eyes to an article that is relevant to my interests.

My only question is why isn't there 100 comments already about how excited people are for another Homeworld game?

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

I'd say it's a bit of both. Having a job where your work is immediately open to anonymous discussion, and where knowing what that discussion is is important, can suck.

The new job I took has a messageboard attached. Every day I'll go see what the feedback is. You have to. And every day at least someone is saying something dismissive and jerkish. And often ignorant. You can work your ass off on something and the comments from people that don't understand how things happen can be grating. People assuming something was done for money, or laziness, or was much easier than it actually was. People assuming that, when something isn't quite right, it's the result of idiocy rather than something falling apart with no time to fix it.

It's deflating, but not terrible for me because my job is only moderately creative. When you're actually, fully on the creative side, it can really burn.

Bravo. I hate the back-handed sarcasm the most, it's like, really? Why don't you just write things out like an adult rather than a teenage girl?

That said, I don't work in the games industry, but I do work in social media and care about the company I work for, so my job is a drag when I have to go to work every day just to see my company and everyone that works for it are ignorant, bloodsucking, incompetent, soulless assholes and the product that we sell isn't worth the money. The amount of complaints that we get vs. the amount of business that we actually do is *tiny*, but people act like the whole world has been turned on its goddamn head when one little thing just doesn't go right.

Twitter is serious business. God forbid you say something that can get picked apart easily by the masses.

One dev that handles himself well on Twitter is Matt Higby of SOE. Fish should take a cue from Higby and be more classy.

Has Blizzard made leveling artifacts account-bound yet? Or am I stuck with them on the same server still?

Only 'Martial Arts' FPS worth a shit in the history of PC gaming was Oni --nothing else came close.

Which leads me to my next question. Who owns the rights and wants to partner up with me to kickstart an Oni Redux?

You'd think that Bungie would have done made more of such a cool game and IP. Stupid Halo....

The Walking Dead what? Season what?

Ugh, too complicated. Pass.


Yeah, I didn't buy this either because numbers are hard. The only ones that matter are 1, 2, and 3 - anything higher is overthinking it, and after 3 you should just make a new franchise. Adding qualifiers like "season" and "episode" just confuses things. WTB Black Ops 3.

I always wonder if stuff like this is an insurance scam. The cameras at the hotel must have caught this, right? And why are they making a game about Luftbalons?

Cameras or not, the hotel is not responsible for lost or stolen items - they're the responsibility of the owner. Chances are he signed something stating such when he checked into the hotel, if he was staying in the hotel. Either way, state law protect innkeepers from paying more than $100-200 in compensation for lost or stolen items.

Yeah, seriously. WHY THE FUCK is your bag with everything in it at a fucking POOL BAR, as opposed to in the safe in your room???

If you act like a moron, odds are the world's going to treat you like one.

Creston

Creston, you're the first person to ever use the "s" word that I have seen in one of these cases. And I have seen A LOT of these cases.

So many delicious tears on Twitter overnight, here's an account retweeting them all.

It actually wasn't nearly so bad as I had imagined, but that's probably partially due to me already having gotten over that trauma a couple years ago when I read it. It's just amazing to see how many people who are such big fans had NO IDEA it was coming.

Oh god, such a good read. Wow. Love it.

As someone that has read all of the books, all I have to say is this: it doesn't stop.

This isn't the first time Blizzard has axed a game before release. Usually they do it a lot later when it's a lot more clear that the game will only be mediocre. Anyone remember Starcraft: Ghost? Or Warcraft Adventures? At least they dropped the axe before anyone could be truly disappointed.

After the use of a macro, AutoHotkey nears the center of Peter Molyneux's scam on the gaming press.

The wonderful secret is that Peter Molyneux is actually the goatse.cx guy.

Damn, snoozed and lost. Tomb Raider is sold out on GMG.

Keep checking back:

We will have the Tomb Raider 50% deal back as soon as possible Thanks for your patience folks. -James

GMG frequently runs out of keys and has to get more (publishers don't anticipate the number of sales they can generate, and gives them what they consider an adequate block, and generally its not). Since the sales are often near the weekend, sometimes it takes a bit to track down people and get another block of keys.

I don't know for sure that's what happened here, but that would be my guess.

Sounds like it - they had more today so I picked one up. Unfortunately it was 1 hour after the Dealzon deal ended. Oh well - still 50% off a $50 game!

I like WoT too, but I haven't touched it since Planetside 2 came out. I may pick it up again soon though - maybe after I finish my $10 Mass Effect 3.
