Is footage from a 360? The graphics look terrible. The textures look like it's from a 360. Is there any footage of this on a PC with a proper PC UI? Otherwise I find this less than inspiring.
It's xbox one(shocking at how shitty it is isn't it?), and there hasn't been a PC vid in 8 months or so.

Rejoice and blesseth the heavens, the devil is gone. Gamasutra is finally readable again.
What I find funny is they're wanting to create a gaming site for "minorities and women." Oh boy, look at that segregation...then again if it's anything like /r/girlgamers it'll be 98% men and men pretending to be women.

Leigh "I'm a megaphone, killing careers, and railing on hoodmen" Alexander gone from Gamasutra, who'd have thought? Wonder if the site will start to recover now that their screwed up eic is gone.

I have no clue if the ~30% is fair or not, but distribution services are hosting the files and other game features that has to be paid for somehow. In the case its a percent per unit. On the consoles you have similar fees for releasing your games regardless if its digital. Physical retailers take a cut as well. Its part of the cost of doing business and being able to reach larger audience/market.

There is nothing stopping these developers from self-publishing or using an engine with better terms. The developers choose off-shelf engines and pre-built solutions for a reason.

30% is very fair at least from the people that I work with in our h-game circle, one of the reasons why people keep hoping that steam will allow AO titles on there in more frequency. The biggest sites like (all nsfw) dmm.co.jp, dlsite.com, getchu all use a "seller rate" structure. Using a "you post for less, they take more." Look at DLsite, you put a game up for $1 you get $0.25. Your $30 game you get $18.50. Getchu and dmm are the same, so yeah a 30% flat rate? You better believe it's fair.

You're right though, there's nothing to stop them from self-publishing but you know why people use sites like I mentioned or steam right? Market exposure. Once a title is listed, tagged and so on, it becomes easy in terms of finding eyes to buy your stuff.

If steam launched their own AO service, that worked cross-regional you'd see JP devs jump on it especially with the amount of fuck-over that circles get now for their own titles.

I dunno. A lot of people feel the same way. For some reason it just failed to hook me and pull me in. Same with the second one. I found the combat and magic systems to be cumbersome. Trying to remember sigils, which weapon to use where and when. And Geralt's voice acting was just so flat and boring.

Took me three attempts before I got into the first game. It starts out very slow, by the time you clear the first outlying area though it picks up amazingly. And really you can get through the entire game playing with ignii(fire), arrd(air blast) and yrden(stun 2nd game) not using anything else even on the highest difficulty. As for the voice, listen to it with the polish VO and you'll find out that it's a similar speaking style. That's because he is that way in the books.

What does it really matter anyway? Gamergate is already literally portrayed by its opposition as a terrorist organization trying to do Sarin gas attacks on PAX. (Actual quote from Anita Sarkeesian's friend Brianna Wu) A dev who allegedly acts like a bit of an ass is going to tarnish Gamergates good name?

EDIT: At this point it's the other way around. Anyone who tries to talk about gaming journalism ethics is basically shut down immediately and painted with the Gamergate brush. You even mention ethics and you're a fucking terrorist and go on like five Twitter block-lists. If you're high profile at all, you'll also trigger hit pieces from places like Polygon and VG247. You don't have to say or do anything even remotely controversial. Just call for ethics in journalism and you're fucking finished in terms of the mainstream games media.

I really wish I was exaggerating.

You want to know what I found funny about that who "sarin gas" thing? It was a anti-gg person that said it, back in October. Anti-GG are nothing but fear mongers who actually engage in deception, and doxx people. I can find plenty of incidents from major anti-gg members engaging in and encouraging doxing.

Wonder how many people have figured out yet that the game press especially sites like polygon, kotaku, vg247 are lying and making up a fake narrative.

Not because it would not allow for modding but because it would probably be a monstrous task to achieve the same level and relative ease of moddability that fans of TES and FO have come to appreciate.
That's really the problem. Not only are you asking people to fundamentally shifting to an entire new toolset, you're asking them to destroy the portability of mods from one game to the other. Really, does anyone thing that a mod like Tales of Two Wastelands(FONV Mod), would be doable if they went from Gamebryo to a UE engine? The answer of course is yes...it could be done, and it would still be worked on four years from now.

And of course, then you'd have to scrap entire scripting extensions like FOSE/NVSE/OBSE/SKSE/etc because of the engines fundamental differences, that of course would delay all those kick ass mods that people enjoy so much by another 3-4 years.

This is one of the people you want to be the public face of Gamergate?

How is someone with budget failures the public face of gamergate? Also, how is someone like him the public face in a leaderless movement in the first place? Remember, in a leaderless movement ideas, opinions, and so on live or die by merit. Something that's anathema of the anti-gg people(if you really want to see how bad the anti-meritocracy has become look at what happened to github).

I'm mostly referring to the trolling, the threats going back and forth, mostly stuff on twitter. I think Brianna Wu is displaying vitriol, but it pisses me off that asshats troll her with death threats- she is practically a martyr now. Wardell get death threats quite often, he engages his 'attackers' on twitter and seems to keep a level head.
Really Wu created they're victim storm for trolls by simply doing what they're doing. It's like a target rich environment, and of course they attracted even more trolls when they tried to say that GG was going to use nerve gas at PAX. Never mind that it was a anti-gg person who said so.

Is Brad Wardell of Stardock a big name ceo/dev? He's about as pro GG As you get, just without the vitriol.

Depends on your PoV, but I think he's come out as anti-anti-GG as well. Many of his posts though resonate with what GG is though, in turn it gets a lot of play in the various channels. I'm curious on what vitriol though and from who.

Why? I have no idea who Mark Kern is. I'm going to do my own research but I'm interested in your view on it.
He was basically the lead designer for most of the beloved blizzard games out there. Vanilla WoW, D2/LOD, SC and so on.

Red Neck trucker says NO to this blonde trying to merge...

"Whut the he-il?"

Car had it coming, but him being on the phone isn't helping matters any.

Considering it's a dash cam, I can't figure out where you think he's being on the phone has to play. Since I can't see where you're getting that from. Also, if you've driven or been in a rig, that's one of those huge fucking blindspots where cars go missing, which is one of the reasons if you notice many have a fish-eye mirror in that area. You can't see shit, your passenger might, but you probably won't until you hit the stupid retard at the last minute or they're trying to "force their way in."

I had more CTDs in Skyrim than in any other game I've ever played, by orders of magnitude.
Really? Seems to be outside the norm for me, after the patches and when SKSE finally hit a stable stage the game stability improved immensely. My last play through was 208 hours, and I would get a crash maybe every 6-8 hours during a hardcore play session. And that was with 208 mods loaded. Not merged. The biggest thing that effects stability are mods not playing properly with memory management and anything that improves textures, especially with a poor/bad ugrid configuration.

But you did basic things like run TES5edit to remove dirty edits and so on right? Checked to make sure that the mods you're using are clean and watched script heavy mods right?

Anyway, for people saying "but i wants UE4 or something else..." yeah, we'll just gut the modding right out of the game right? Something that adds immensely to the quality, and re-playability. Sounds like a genius move to me, what about you guys?

Regardless of whether or not one thinks game journalism needs to be "fixed," Mark Kern is certainly not who you want leading that call.

Well he's not pro-GG, he's come out and said that. He's anti-anti-GG, meaning he doesn't associate with it, doesn't want to, doesn't believe that everything GG is right about, but is against the anti-GGers who are for the status quo. He's also the first big name former dev to publicly attach his name. There are also several people at other major studios who've come out in support for GG, and a whole shit load of indie dev's who are tired of the yellow journalism and incestuous media relationship with a very small clique of indie devs, their friends, and fixed award shows.

On top of that there's also a number of people apparently who are tired of "circle-jerk" award shows like the shorty's and so on. Especially after the we're going to promote or are influenced by Lena "no girl is too young" Dunham, or Brianna "I'm going to make shit up" Wu.

SSD's are fine especially latest generation, however that website and article was a rag, one can say "using any data storage for every day use or work, may want to backup often" lol
Hell I've got two first gen SSD's both are 60GB and they're still screaming along. The first one got transplanted to my laptop about a year ago, and the other is used for games that take an assload longtime to load aka total war games and so on.

They work fine in servers too, as long as you run a good backup. They're great especially in database servers, the biggest problem we always had was waiting on the DB to serve info to the machines, which SSD's have fixed. Now we're starting to run into an actual bandwidth problem across all the machines.

Ooc, are Windows 7 & 8 region locked or is it possible to find a good deal using VPN?
Depends on where you buy it from some countries are region locked(like russia and china) but some aren't, though during the rush for Win8 keys a lot of people were buying it from india($8 USD) via vpn and it apparently works fine to this day.

If you buy from someone like nuuvum(gaming) it'll usually say if it works in region XYZ or not or if it's locked.

Hey, that's almost a good paraphrase of what the flappy headed nuts at the TDSB tried telling people. Until there was a massive backlash over it, funny enough that one of the people who implemented the curriculum was eventually arrested for pedophilia and copious amounts of kiddie porn. Maybe...it was nothing...maybe...

Apparently Nina Freeman when she was 12 or so did something like this, and thus, the game was born?
When I was 8(almost 27 years ago now), everyone in my class already know how this shit worked. It was all word of mouth or through our parents. Perhaps her parents had problems figuring out how to talk to her? Who knows. Hell I remember at the age of 7 my parents explaining it to me.

Maybe it's the difference between parents today, and parents who grew up in the 60's and lived through the 70's.
