$35 for an unknown alpha game? Lol smoke some more crack.

It's hardly unknown, except perhaps to yourself. I do think $35 is too much for an alpha which is why I haven't bought it yet. $24 on sale now, that's a little more like it. As an investment for the completed game, $24 seems like a decent entry point.

EA and YouTube producers broke FTC rules with Battlefield 4 promotion.

FRANKIEonPC and JackFrags, both secretly shilled for EA. Two of my favorite tubers. That's a damn shame because I don't feel I can trust anything they say now and consequently, I can no longer watch them.

Fuck me, that's really disappointing

I too would like to see better variety as opposed to a (perceived) better quality.

Do they not have colleges near their recording studio? Do those colleges not have drama courses? A few flyers and local ads could go a long ways here. This would also have the added good karma of sending some money the way of people who actually need it as well.

This Popular Flashlight App Has Been Secretly Sharing Your Location And Device ID.

If they received any kind of fine out of it, I sure didn't see it and I skimmed through the judgement .pdf as well.

David Suzuki speaks about overpopulation

As right as he is in this clip, still he is horribly wrong. He focuses on treating the symptoms of the disease and not the disease itself. His solution would only accelerate the problem.

The disease is overpopulation, the symptom is the resultant hunger/famine. The cure is one child per couple till the population falls to a sustainable level and is stabilized.

Of course, you will never see any scientist with a nice position say that as messing with peoples reproductive capability is a serious taboo subject. The die-back when it occurs, is going to be a thing of horror.

Yeah, I don't understand why any newer MMO would launch without a name@account format. Not only does it get you the name you want, it also allows to /ignore an entire account so you don't have to deal with alt spam.

To launch without that feature is a big mistake nowadays.

They just can't help not being evil, can they? When your business's legal department has more authority than the PR department, an EA is the result. No common sense whatsoever.

A Rogue-like where ganking newbs is the raison d'etre? Count me out!

On the subject of early access, I hear what the naysayers are saying but personally I think it's a great thing. What would make it even better though is if the first 24 hours were free, so you could decide if the game is in a state you are willing to pay for now or would rather hold off until release (or just avoid it completely, if you decide it's not for you).

Two reasons that wouldn't fly. The available server(s) would likely be overloaded into uselessness with no purchasing barrier in place and I doubt Valve would be willing to foot the bandwidth bill for those free client distros w/o receiving compensation.

SourceForge malware

That's too bad. Useful sites always get co-opted into evil by the suits eventually, SF managed to hold out for an impressively long time.

Hopefully everyone else with useful apps will move away from it as well.

Instead of worrying about people who are well within their rights to discuss your publicly available works, maybe spend a little more time building a competent game. Chances are if your game doesn't suck, you'll be too busy counting the cheques to be raging over the relatively modest amount of money that people like Total Biscuit make from the monetization of niche indie game videos.

I cringe to think how long this has gone on over the years when 'professional' reviewers (gamespot, ign, etc...) were actually relevant. It's likely still going on today and might explain how average games like GTA V get 97% on metacritic (not saying it's a legitimate resource, just want to point out how hilarious it is that it has nearly a perfect score).

http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/grand-theft-auto-v

It had absolutely nothing to do with any "monetization", that was just the weak sauce excuse being put forward for stifling speech they don't agree with. That they can't come clean even after dropping a 10 ton anvil of Streisand Effect on themselves, shows how pathetic they truly are. Too bad, you lose. You are now and forever a boycotted company.

W3C green-lights adding DRM to the Web's standards

Is there any legal mechanism to force browser devs to adopt this standard? I can see Microsoft and Apple cheerfully climbing on-board, Google maybe (they've been spreading their ass cheeks for Hollywood lately) but Mozilla seems unlikely.

Without some mechanism to enforce compliance, anyone adopting this will quickly find themselves out in the cold I should think.

The Red Cross also tried to force devs to remove the red cross from video games, such as appearing on medic armbands etc..

They apparently have a real hard-on for video games. Guess who won't be receiving any more donations come the next disaster.

Is embedded video on the front page going to be a new thing going forward or is this a paid for ad?

I don't know about SP, but they definitely need an offline sandbox map with all vehicles so people can get their controls tweaked and practice a bit before being thrown into the mix. Such a huge oversight in BF3.

I've played most of the X games over the years and one thing they all seem to have in common is major bugs on release, needing a good 3 months or so of patching to work them out. Considering this a major rework of the past games, I would expect it to be especially true of this one.

While I'm as excited as the rest for it, I won't be pre-ordering and will wait for them to work out the inevitable kinks first.

His admission that he screwed up is not so much an admission that he was wrong to engage in his douchebaggery, but wrong because the legal system doesn't allow him to stifle speech critical of his douchebaggery and he should have known better.

Don't even get me started on his laughably transparent Buddhist hypocrisy.

He's such a complete piece of shit.

I don't really understand this game. I've tuned into several different Twitch streams but all I ever see is some guy running alone across a seemingly endless landscape punctuated with an occasional house ruin.

The few times said streamer meets another person it ends badly for one of them.

Maybe all the streamers suck, I dunno but I've tried watching more than a few.

Lonswd, you argument is so full of holes, in no way, in no world does subscription = game worth playing.

Firstly, no "argument" is being presented.

Secondly, this nonexistent argument is full of holes because you completely misunderstood the sentiment. I'm not saying a sub or lack thereof makes a game good or bad. I am saying that a sub is not a deterrent to my playing a game if it's good. Conversely, I'm not going to play a bad game just because it's free.

Way to totally miss the point.
