When you're looking for work as a game dev, the metacritic score of the titles you've worked on effects how HR recruiters view your CV.

Yeah that's half the problem. Especially when publishers can taint it, users can bomb it. Absofuckinguseless.

No shit. They couldn't PAY me to upgrade. Windows 8 is going to be a bigger bust than Vista was.

Yeah I'm getting a forced upgrade for my work machine. Oh yeah. So now I get to do double duty on a win7 and win8 machine. If I come here and am twice as insane, you now know the reason.

Christian countries are white countries and white people are less likely to commit serious crimes than non-whites. This has less to do with religion and more to do with racial differences.
Ahaha yeah. I think it's about time for you to travel outside of that 60 mile limit of your house, and go travel the world a bit. There are plenty of countries that some form of christianity as the actual state religion(roman catholic for example, and a few that are protestant), that are actually non-white. I'll just point that out.

fear has always been used to control the population... see: christianity
Funny you say that. In other news, in socities which have a strong belief in "hell" like "christianity" there is a lower crime rate. Well now, isn't that a problem, or is it? The actual study in itself is very interesting if you're into psychology at all, though it's behind a paywall which is why I'm not linking it.

Now, I can keep going if I really wanted but which way. Should we go the Muslim, or the Jewish path? Shinto, or Hindu? Choices, choices. Though the muslim one is reallllly fun with their crime stats. Especially once you get into the number of sexual assaults in muslim countries, and you correct them to western values.

In the undergrad criminology course I took, the one part covering theft prevention they liked to call this the "Make me feel like a criminal effect." If you make people feel like a criminal, they're more likely to react that: If they're being labeled as such, they're going to react as such no matter what. People don't like being applied with this label, and it shows that businesses who do such are out of touch with their customers.

How the hell this ever passes into reality, when people tell them "this isn't a good idea" I have no freaking clue.

Nothing. It wasn't a bad technology 130 years ago when people were messing around with it in b/w photographs except as an oooh-ahahhh wowoer. But it's also easy to give you eyestrain, headaches, nausea, and all the rest. But most people still haven't even jumped onto the "HD" bandwagon.

Considering how cheap a good laser printer will cost these days, you might want to consider grabbing one of those the next time you need a replacement. Especially with the cost of toner cartridges. I picked up a Samsung CLP-320 for $120 last year and I'm still on the starter toner kit, and I've already printed double what the starter kit listed for the number of pages would print. They listed 2000 b/w and 400-500 colour. I've gotten ~4800b/w and around 650 colour so far.

And considering the toner cartridge is around the same price each for a single colour pack these days, I still end up coming ahead when I did the math.

Having a whole pile of government customers bail on them probably helped change their minds too.
Either that or they bailed to get in the news, to drum themselves into the news. Sometimes even bad publicity is still good publicity.

The Android Forums one is misleading. Its for a third party site (a part of the Phandroid website family). It has nothing to do with the real Android or Google in any way. Its like saying the Apple forums were hacked and then pointing to the CultOfMac forums
I was making the comment in general actually. We've had the voice leak yesterday(google/yahoo/etc), then nvidia, and we've also had several others over the last few months.

Interesting, wonder how many of these forums and all that had their security outsourced. Been a lot of data breaches recently.

Yeah the darthmod stuff works great. There's also Radious if you don't like Darth's stuff. Both are excellent, and I recommend trying both mod systems to see which you like.

The last time? You mean the last time they dumped their CEO the stock plummeted? Really? Funny. In my universe Riccitiello has been the CEO of EA for several years now.
No the last time he opened his mouth about 5months ago, the stock plummeted. You might want to dust off your web browser and go take a look at that $7.50 dump.

What? If investors do actually believe that Riccitiello is at fault for the falling share prices then EA's stock will rise tomorrow, not fall.
That didn't happen the last time. The last time the stock price dumped nearly $3 over a 2mo period, and is down nearly $7 in a 4mo period. Check the market yourself, infact check yesterdays trades, there was plenty of heavy selling with some late day buying of EA stocks up 0.09% in anticipation of tomorrows early buys and later selling.

Even rumors like these can have serious repercussions. Should be fun watching EA stock tomorrow.
Yep. I did say about 6mo ago that it would be about time to snag some EA stock, should it tank, and the EA CEO go, it would be a good time to pick up some shares, if they're low enough.

Valve must make a huge amount. Assuming the major publishers negotiate better deals than the standard 30% cut, I'd imagine Valve is still taking 20% of the sale price for themselves and the operating costs will be a fraction of that. Given the number of years that Steam has been going - and doing incredibly well - I'd assume they have a decent stockpile of money.
20-30% might be right down generous of Valve. Most of the big Japanese digital sites are in the 45-60% range.

No. Read the article itself, then the source. It doesn't pass muster.
