I'm really enjoying this game, innovative or not. And somehow I seem to have been spared any major bugs.

Soooooooo, gonna upgrade to Apoc Edition?

No way. I re-mortgaged my house to invest in Star Citizen.

Hahaha well played sir.

Um no Vern. Cheap upper management refusing to pony up the dough for real security is literally always the problem.

Having actually worked IT in my life, I will be the first to fault management where appropriate and for always cutting IT when profits dip. That said, its not 'literally always the problem', there are plenty of dysfunctional IT departments that are their own worst enemy and a big part of the job is doing well within budget constraints.

Target Canada didn't die because their management gutted IT either.

Doesn't matter to me when it's released, I'll check the reviews/forums/comments to see if it's a shit port and if it is I won't buy it.

Yep exactly, same here. I could care less about getting some GTA Online money, if it's a good port then its a guarantee I'll just earn it legit.

Who cares, except those who find her opinion inconvenient?

Wow, we have zero common ground on this topic if you don't think she should even have to do the necessary research about the things shes complaining about in the first place. I can't believe you posted that.

I'm going to click on a happy thread and forget I even bothered with this one haha.

Never played it on console or watched any videos on youtube just about aside from trailers.

They can take as long as they like for all I care. Looking forward to it but I got plenty to stay busy while I wait

Haha wow I'll say, how do you play that many games at once? I'm struggling to play 2-3 consistently. Or is that just whatevers still installed in Steam at the moment?

I'm struggling to even recall who Brianna Wu is, refresh my memory. Something a bit more objective than breitbart. Is the wikipedia entry on her correct? I am really not understanding why either side really cares what she has to say.

The cherry-picking accusation is unfair.

Haha whatever, it's totally fair. I'm not even convinced she actually plays the games herself. I watched one of her videos about Dying Light, a game I've played to completion and she talks about a trope in the game that was completely false and the writers went on to subvert the very trope she was bitching about. Anyone who played it would've immediately understood. It was absolutely cherry picking, a "trope" on the surface that was actually a subversion. It struck me as something that she got from one of her little groupies and decided to run with. She's in it for the money and recognition and all of the apologism surrounding her is only slightly less distasteful to me than the hardcore gamergate people.

Anyways whatever, I'm tired of discussing her. Sleazy as hell.

What the fuck is this "GamerGate" nonsense and why the hell should I give a fuck about any of these people?

Some idiot named Sarsleezian wants money and fame so shes cherry picking tropes in video games because <supposedly legit reasons that are in fact bullshit>. Some people are super duper angry at her so they made a dumb hashtag and then they had all had stupid twitter/4chan wars until everyone got tired of it and told both sides to shut the fuck up. Now it creeps up in the press every few weeks for some silly reason.

There's a bunch of other dumb stuff that came before it (Zoe Quinn, the press being retarded etc) but that's the tl;dr of these days.

I dont get how CS:GO stays up there that long. Im getting the feeling its because of banned hackers that are buying a new one twice a week...

It's just very popular. Low barrier of entry, lots of community additions to the game and its an FPS. Not much else to it.

So were many other FPS games. They didnt stay on top for 3 years, not even close.
The only similar inflation Ive seen in an FPS was on Americas Army. And we all know it was a cheaterfest, you couldnt find a single server without a cheater.

In addition Counter-Strike has a built in player base and a lot of free marketing from Steam. I don't know, doesn't seem like much of a puzzle to me I guess.

Uh no Cutter, the article goes into how both the board and IT departments are responsible for various reasons - age gap between board and IT, IT directors playing politics and resisting personnel reviews and so on. Any time you have malware laying around undetected for months its hard not to fault IT by the way, that shit would never fly here.

I don't know, first game hasn't aged well I played it last week. It would need to be reimagined for sure. I actually liked most of the series but they all suffer from my lower teenage standards from years past

DriveClub is a great game that was launched broken. It absolutely deserved the reviews it got but the shame is it would probably get a mid 80s Metacritic if it had launched feature complete and stable. It's pretty much fixed up now and is one of the better racers I've played. I got a copy as a gift around Christmas and didn't bother loading it up until this month but its really good.

People should check it out if they can score a cheap copy.

Interesting link in the comment section in relation to that Adria Richards thing:

https://amandablumwords.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/3/

Apparently, getting offended, not telling anyone, and causing a huge shitstorm on the internet is her MO.

Adria Richards sounds like a despicable piece of trash, what a poor attitude even after the guy she got fired went out of his way to defend her. The hypocrisy there was hilarious too, getting mad she got fired when she thought it was fine the other guy did. Thanks for the link, very eye opening. Exactly the kind of person that term as a "professional victim".

Once NVidia loses the lawsuit:

"All plantiffs in the class action lawsuit are entitled to receive the following:
- A type-written form letter from NVidia apologizing for the marketing error.
- A $5 coupon good toward the purchase of any NVidia card."

And one free Ubisoft title of their choice.

Haha well since you brought it up...if Nvidia was smart they would've pulled a Ubisoft and offered a free game but said "in order to accept this title you must not sue us" in legalese.

Boyhood didn't win best film? But it was filmed over 12 years! It's a classic because it was filmed over 12 years and having been filmed over 12 years it is the best movie ever, being, as it was, filmed over 12 years.

I've no idea if it's any good, all I hear about it is that it was filmed over a certain period of time. That's a red flag.

It's pretty good man, give it a chance. I felt the same way about Gone Girl (the book), too many people hyping it or only talking about the twist. I thought it was going to be like Dan Brown where I finally start reading and think everyone is retarded because its a train wreck. I was surprised at how well written it was for a general fiction thriller and how convincing Flynn wrote a male character.
