The US is god damn awful for work-life balance. We get/take fewer vacation and sick days, we take more work home with us, and we're expected to be on-call even when we aren't technically.

Could learn a lot from most countries in Europe in that respect.

Herp derp. Click the link to All Games Beta and the video is there. No conspiracy here.

The all games beta isn't a Youtube feed so can't be shut down by UBI, the Youtube ones have been taken down, twice... Duh.

It looks like they brought it down themselves temporarily to re-edit. because they were misinformed it was PC footage, when it was actually PS4. Read the blurb on their site.

Also when it says "Removed by user" that's exactly what happened.

Last I checked, regardless of what their current CEO may hold as personal beliefs, Mozilla has always been a gay friendly company. Why "punish" them for the personal beliefs of one man. A man who, as yet, has not let those beliefs affect company policy?

Other than seeing how the shit runs on your computer, I don't really see the point in a demo in the age of Lets Plays and thousands of YouTubers to choose from, some of which probably shares your likes and dislikes in games almost exactly.

Wait for them to check the FULL game out, and make a decision accordingly. It's better than trusting a demo with cherry picked gameplay sequences and better yet, doesn't distract the dev team during crunch time for an already delayed game.

Quite frankly, I'm glad they didn't waste time or resources trying to overhaul a mobile title into a quality PC port.

If they can't treat the franchise with respect they shouldn't have done it at all.

Yeah they shouldn't have bothered porting it to the PC at all, honestly mobile to PC just doesn't work that well.

.... and the mobile game apparently was pretty decent, but it's PC port has the worst reviews of anything I've ever seen anywhere.

whoa, you're right... IGN gave it 3 out of 10, and there were other review sites that gave it lower scores.

Eidos Montreal, i am disapoint.

To be fair we were pretty vocal about "Fuck this mobile thing, just get to work on the next main game."

Quite frankly, I'm glad they didn't waste time or resources trying to overhaul a mobile title into a quality PC port.

The title is in line with the concept art they showed for the next game, which seemed to indicate segregration for augs etc.

Different dev? Who is this different dev you speak of?
SotS2 was developed by Ironclad
Gal Civ3 is developed by Stardock


SotS2 was made by Kerberos... You're thinking of Sins of a Solar Empire.

Refunds? Really? You back a project, you take your chances. Don't expect something that wasn't promised, and even for the stuff that IS promised, assume there's a solid chance they won't follow through.

Then, if you still feel despite the risks it's worth your support, back the project.

Without commenting on the value or lack thereof in the CE package here, it's always made more sense to me to have Collector's Edition be an "addon" so that you can snag the CE stuff separately without buying a redundant copy of the game.

For example if you wanted to buy a game on Steam but wanted physical CE goodies.

well, that's up for debate... it's still just his opinion. some alt-medicine might actually be beneficial if proven.

And if it's proven, it ceases to be called alternative medicine. Alternative medicine is, by definition, the shit that didn't pass the sniff test. It's like that quote that people pass around a lot attributed to various people:

We have a word for alternative medicine that works, it's "medicine."

Most alternative medicine is stuff that has already been proven to not work. The stuff that works doesn't stay in the realm of alternative medicine for long. Big pharma has more money and more resources to find, manufacture, and market new medicine, so they almost always beat the alternative-medicine whackos to the punch on finding EFFECTIVE new treatments. If it's in the alternative medicine community, it's probably already been evaluated and deemed ineffective by actual science.

Alt-medicine people are science deniers no better than young earth creationists and global warming deniers. They want to believe it works, and anyone telling them otherwise has a nefarious agenda. Full on tinfoil hat territory there.

Most of that stuff can be dismissed by any first year pre-med student based on what they learn in their first biochem class. Ingredients that the body does not interact with in a meaningful way, for example. Or ingredients with low bio-availability combined with being diluted down to nothing.
