There are several mods that either completely get rid of them, or that give you a larger amount of turns. If you don't want to play with them, you don't have to.

Well for anyone following this thread still, I've experienced my first game-breaking bug which means I've got to start the game from scratch. Another thread on it here.

FFS. That pisses me off to no end, enough to want to get a refund.

Why are you guys so miserable? Are your entire lives like this?

Who's miserable? I'm quite happy that this hack is no longer going to be writing about vidya. Oh and apparently offworld's actual monthly pull is between 25k-35k uniques.

Sounds like enough people want it, then, so what's your problem?

And 750,000 visitors a month doesn't sound unpopular.

It's pretty shit poor. /r/kotakuinaction only has ~56k subs, but generates over 500k uniques/month when things are slow.

This is his fourth time quitting social media? Fifth?

I hope it sticks this time. The stupid drama he keeps stepping in would be bad enough for a completely healthy person. I enjoy the content he puts out there. I don't enjoy the endless cycle of bombast and pity party that he locks himself into whenever he tries to engage in what he interprets as reasonable debate.

Wouldn't be surprised if he stuck with it this time, the cancer he had metastasized to his liver and they gave him 6mo-2years tops even with treatments.

Is it region locked? Yeah might be a stupid question for a single player game but I don't want to buy a key that won't end up working on Steam because Im from Europe.


GMG copies are either NA or NA/EU or worldwide copies, most of the time worldwide copies.

Has she ever written anything that was peer reviewed? Links, sources, please!

I wouldn't consider her "masters thesis" to be a piece of peer reviewed work, more like the typical diploma mill garbage. You can read it for yourself here, if you have 30min to an hour or so, be prepared to bang your head against the wall too.

She's pretty much ruined her career and any chance of being taken seriously as a feminist writer or political theorist. She badly needs to get back to peer reviewed academic work so that she can find some modern relevance.

Her 'academic work' came from the degree mill program of UoT.

On the upside she's now "burnt out" from failing to deliver on something nearly 3.2 years past the original ship date. Sounds closer that she knows the gravy train is about to crash and is trying to get out before she goes down with it.

Cities Skylines is my game of 2015 by a huge margin. Of course, it has been 13 years since the last SimCity, right? RIGHT?!

Nah, it's not but we just keep telling ourselves that because of the abomination the other one was.

NKD wrote on Jan 16, 2016, 20:57:
Vivendi had a controlling interest in the company from 98 to 2013 in one form or another, and everything from Diablo II/Warcraft III and onward were made in that time period. If you don't like what Blizzard has been up to lately, well, they've been effectively free of Vivendi for three years. Or at least more free than they've been since Warcraft II.

So which is it? Vivendi had a controlling stake, or they've been free for the last 3 years? Or more free than they've been since WC2?

You seem to forget that over the last 15 years there's been a very different shift in companies, especially when other companies hold a controlling interest in another and the drive on profits vs quality.

What I keep asking myself is what os is on your mobile phones? I hope it's not Android or iOS, because the spyware that comes with these is at least as obnoxious as Win10's is.

Don't worry, Android or iOS is okay because it's not MS.

Freeing up the assets they need to continue with their attempts to acquire a controlling interest in Ubisoft. That should be a fun fight.

That was my exact thought, maybe with a bit of luck without the amount of control that vivendi had we'll see some better shit out of Blizzard.

Did anyone like Tropico 5? The user reviews for the game didn't appear overly positive. I really enjoyed the first and third one, I didn't like 4 quite as much.

It wasn't bad, some of the humor was pretty damn good. Was it on T3 or T4? Nah, but still pretty good.

I want to say something bad, but $5/mo. is pretty cheap.

But, how far will it go, and how long will the quality of game selection last?

How do I know what games they will add in the future? Sure, this first selection seems great, but of course they're going to offer a great selection initially.

The next selection could be complete shit.

Their next title (some great new game) could be "not included in Origin Access" because of whatever reasons.

Then you begin to see less value in paying an Origin Access subscription.

Then what? You stop paying for Origin Access? Then what? You lose all your games?

Too many questions that I can't be bothered to research, because these asshats didn't put the answers in their gay multiverse video (above).

All your answers are here.

Luckily EA suspended my EA account due to a charge back even though I have no payment info in Origin and have never bought anything directly from EA. That's one way to keep me from ever buying one of their games.

That's what small claims court is for FYI.

Except... Origin.

It sure has a hell of a lot better support than Steam.

? Never noticed that?

The incidence of it happening to people is random. If I die, and use the reload last save it can take upwards of a minute to load a save even on a SSD. However, if I exit to the main menu and load it will load the save in under 20 seconds. Just started playing, so I'll see if this is fixed in a couple and update.

Yep, the load problem is now fixed. Takes around 15 seconds to load a save again.

Isn't that the normal launch price in Canadian dollars? That exchange rate isn't your friend.

No it's not. Before the Canadian dollar was at $1:$0.80/0.75USD a few years ago the prices here were in the $59-69 range, that's even when we were at the situation we're at now. Then the prices started dropping into the $59 region, and you could buy a game here in Canada for less than you could in the US. And a lot of people started buying games directly on steam instead of 3rd party sites.

Then the dollar started moving back to the $0.70:$1USD ratio it's been in the past, and the prices went through the fucking roof. It reminds me of the early 00's, when a new video game was $80-100 here. Piracy as you can guess exploded up here in Canada, it then started coming in line around 06/08ish where you could buy it very close to the $59USD/59-69CAD at retail.

I can still buy a copy at retail with tax then it's cheaper to buy it through Steam now. So it's easy to tell where the gouging is, it also seems that publishers are forgetting COL, and here in Canada there really hasn't been an increase in wages even though everything from food to fuel has gone up 25% in the last 3-4 years.

That AMA was a fucking clusterfuck, the mods at /r/iama need to get their shit together. Nearly 10m subs and they're trying to whine over brigading of questions, then turn the entire fucking thing into a comment graveyard.
