Flat pricing is not fair pricing, by definition.

Interesting - to me charging each consumer the same price for the same product is fair. To do otherwise is unfair.

Unfair to whom?

If I'm buying a game for $50, and someone in India is buying a game for $15, there's a good chance I'm still spending less of my disposable income on games than he is.

So even with a large price disparity, I'm still the one getting the better deal. How am I being treated unfairly?

Perhaps if there was neutrality on pricing, with fair flat pricing across all regions there would be no problem here. Instead it's "charge as much as you can" for each region, and consumers should have the right to import to protect themselves equally.

There are already games on the market - this is a clone.

/the tough guy fat kid behind the keyboard talk is always funny. To bad you aren't aware how these things work in real life.

Jumping straight to the ad hominem? Sounds like you have some strong, factual arguments there.

No-knock warrants, militarization of our police force, and over-utilization of SWAT units are some of the biggest problems with US law enforcement today, aside from racism. Asset forfeiture being used as little more than highway robbery is also a growing problem.

But no, I suppose that's just "tough guy fat kid" talk, not legitimate criticism.

Exactly this. I wonder if there will be a civil-forfeiture minigame?

If we can't prove you've done anything criminal, by god we'll just seize all your shit instead! Coming soon to a courtroom near you: United States v. High Value Steam Account

I never encountered any captains that were both immune to vaulting and frontal stuns, but I guess it's theoretically possible. I think they should have added a strength that makes captains completely immune to stuns.

I had a few that were shield+spear dudes immune to vaulting and stuns in the front. It was still possible to get behind them, but pretty tricky.

My go-to strategy for the harder captains was to drag them over to some fodder (if they didn't have some already with them) build up a combo chain, and use it on a Fire Arrow to a grog vat or a campfire or something. As far as I know they can't become immune to fire.

Might be able to get a Hatred of burning though, which would give them regen etc. In which case I don't know what you'd do.

Fuck yeah guys, time for another edition of Morality Score!

This tower defense game scored an 85%. It lost some points because you blow up aliens, and there is some rough language!

Woe be to the immoral heathens who embark upon such a violent and debauched journey!

I never understand why Christ-Centered Gamer gets such scorn. He is providing a service to religious gamers (yes they do exist) who worry about things like violence, profanity, sexual content etc. He isn't preaching to anyone else about what is bad or good.

I just find the term "Morality Score" to be funny and almost dystopian. It's not really something we're used to seeing numerically.

Are any of you guys who are enjoying ME:SoM using KB&M? I don't like using my controller with third person games and the Batman series didn't 'feel' quite right with KB&M.

I'm using keyboard and mouse. Feels very responsive compared to Batman, at least to me.

Good. Any mouse smoothing, acceleration or other port symptoms?

Well, since it's not really an FPS or even remotely aim-sensitive, I couldn't really tell if there was any mouse smoothing or acceleration going on. I didn't much like the feel of aiming the bow, though. Not sure if it was mouse acceleration or what. But the way it works, you spend almost all of your time while aiming the bow in a really strong slow-mo effect so it didn't really affect my ability to chain headshots.

Whoever was the cunt that made that car bomb threat, I hope he is found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. These threats help neither side.

And speaking of Leigh Alexander, have a compilation of saying from this SJW woman. Because if anyone can talk about ethics, it surely is she.

Leigh Alexander is an irredeemable piece of shit, there's no doubt about that.

That's all that this interview really is - someone makes a small very niche game complaining that few people are interested. Which is what happens when something is small and niche.

Unless you know somebody, in which case a single article on a gaming news website can make all the difference in the world, even for a simple non-games like this guys visual novel, or Depression Quest.

That type of favor currying is commonplace in many industries, but that doesn't make it okay, or any less frustrating for someone who sees equivalent projects take off because of insider connections, while their project flounders.

I definitely would not want to be an indie dev in this environment. One pissed off Twitter personality can sink you. One games "journalist" who doesn't like you can ensure your game stays effectively buried.

Don't use a technical preview for anything remotely sensitive if you don't want MS to have that information. As far as I know, this isn't new. They do a TON of automated data collection for tech previews. They rely primarily on this data rather than manually submitted feedback.

I can see that partially, sure. A list of applications and how long it takes them to open, no problem. A list of your hardware so they can aggregate data and figure out what the most prevailing conditions are, sure.

What do they need your browing, search and file history for? What do they need your fucking PHONE CALL AND SMS DATA for?? To find out how to make WinTen run better?


That does seem odd, but it's hard to say what they are actually collecting and what they are simply "reserving the right" to collect. Cover-your-ass boilerplate shit mandated by legal, etc.

Allow me to point out that here is a AAA game with a strong (and fully dressed) female protaganist. Now I'll shut up.

Clearly this game is a misogynistic male power fantasy made by cis white males. While the character may APPEAR to be a strong female protagonist, she is at the mercy of the clearly cis Xenomorph and made to be a perpetual victim.

Yeah IGN is catching a lot of shit for that. They took some guy who apparently is not even a survival horror fan, and then had him play through on "Hard" difficulty.

Serial everything-hater Jim Sterling on the other hand called it one of the best horror games he'd ever played.

Some very polarized opinions on this one.

I remember when gaming used to be about games. Might be getting time to hang up the towel on gaming and take up a nice old-person hobby like photography. I have no interest in gaming if it continues along this route and becomes nothing more than a vehicle for social issues.
