Except for every failure there's a success. The model does work in many cases, so it's more likely people will learn to be more discerning and not throw their money at anything with a cool title. The Steam reviews help a lot with this, even if they require a few people to get burned. As people become more discerning, the onus will fall on developers to ensure they have something worth paying for.

No there's not. You better start looking at some stats. Failed projects/scams outweigh good/finished projects by a wide margin and it's only getting worse.

I call bullshit on this one. So having a master shipped to a production facility in China, having all the assets produced than shipped here via tanker, then train and truck is more green than me downloading a file from across the country? And it says nothing of the waste that has to be picked up and removed for recycling or landfill. Bullshit.

Only EA would pretend that a fucking marketing officer actually brings any kind of meaning to a game.

Yep, that's the problem in a nutshell. They believe that marketing is more important than the product itself.

The judge's original July ruling endorsed the US government's position that it should be able to access the world's servers. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska ruled.

That's both reasonable and rationale. I have to say, I agree with that. Just because MS has something stashed away in another country, they are the ones that are controlling it and they are ultimately a US company subject to US law - in theory at any rate.

Well, thats because a lot of gamers are kids who have never been burned by anyone before. Ask the metric shit ton of people out there who learned the hard way that you don't give contractors money until the job is done. Just watching Mike Holmes the other day talking about this and he brought up a story about one couple who gave a contractor 230 grand up front...and never heard from him again.

Much like the failures with crowd-sourcing, EA will peter off in time as people finally get it.

love how the bulldogs in that article look so much healthier than today's versions. also, would be nice if they did some basic fact checking. 'f-15 mustang' heh.

45 peeps in the pickem league wow. do you guys always pick the favorite or do you try to guess an upset now and then?

I usually go by gut and some common sense - XYZ is hurt on Team A so that doesn't look good for them. Like Blue, with the Giants I always pick the Packers, except this year. This year I'm going to experiment like I was a professional gambler and had a lot riding on each game. This year it'll be all picks with my head. Even this first round as an example I took the Seahawks over the Pack.

Has anyone noticed that when someone complains and one does not agree with the complaint, it's characterized as "whining". It's only "whining" when you disagree. I have a different perspective. I'm tired of the drama as well. However, just because I'm tired of it, and doesn't and shouldn't prevent others from talking about it. Just as I would not want to stop people from describing complaints they do not like as "whining," I don't want to stop the people who are complaining either. I say my approach is pretty even handed. The way you fight bad speech is with more speech.

No, there's a difference between a legitimate gripe and whining. There's been far too much whining from a lot of no-name, supposed, game developers of late. Do you hear Spector, Meir, etc. bitching? No. No one is forcing them to do the work that they do or even interact with the public. Yet they do, and they constantly piss and moan about it. Oh poor them, they're so hard done by. Fuck them and the whiny nags they rode in on. I see a lot of Mexican migrant workers around where I live. These guys work like dogs for peanuts and you don't hear a peep out of them. So fuck these self-entitled assholes. Don't like it, go do something else.

Well, I wouldn't want to see CoH return per se, but I'd dearly love to see a new, and better, superhero MMO show up! Hell, even a good superhero CRPG. Geez Louise, the Batman Arkham games are the only good things going these days and that's just sad seeing how big the comic industry is these days wot with the movies, merchandising, etc.

If it's that painful then quit. Just shut up and do something else. When I quit EA I didn't do an op-ed column for the NYT. When I got tired of bartending, I didn't write an open letter about many negative aspects of working in hospitality. I just left and started doing something I really enjoy. How fucking hard is that to do?

Um, has anyone seen the real pictures yet? I might have casually looked for say, 12 to 14 hours yesterday but I wasn't able to find any that were real. There were plenty of disturbing, filthy, and disgusting, fakes that I had to subject myself to, dammit, to no avail. I was just hoping if someone could tell me if they were tasteful, yet double self fisting was involved?

It's like a unicorn, man. You spend your whole life wishing to see it and when you do it's just a stupid horse with a stupid horn on its face. Some things are better left to the imagination.

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

Goddamned right! And we haven't even seen the other shoe drop. When he announces the MMO portion of the game will have a monthly sub and be heavy P2W. I have a feeling that even the SP portion of the game will be really barebones with lots and lots of "optional" purchases that you can grind out - shouldn't take more than 5 years real time to earn them.

And meanwhile Braben is flying along at light speed with a 1/10th of the money. If you were naive enough to trust Roberts get your money back before it's too late!
