I've been wanting to give DS1 another round but don't want to deal with the hassle of GFWL. I don't remember my username or password and can't be bothered to retrieve them.

I'll just wait till they patch Steamworks in

Stop buying early access in general. So sick of every other game released unfinished. Why do people accept this practice? If EA or Ubi did it, we would have their heads on a stick, so why do indies get a free pass?

Spec Ops: The Line is well worth a playthrough, if not just for the story. Combat is pretty good, too
Really, from the demo it seems like another generic third person military thing.

aww hell yeah! i can't wait to replay the same linear 8 hour campaign over and over a few more dozen times, who needs procedurally generated levels anyways! that's soooo 2001.

and hey if i get bored, i'll just pay $50 for one more act. seems fair.

it's blizzard, they can do no wrong, even when they colossally, monumentally dropped the ball.

so they fixed the game 2 years after release? TIME TO PARTY!
You know the game has procedurally generated levels right? Not sure if trolling or not.

Earning $11,000 per year compared with $22,000 per day in the same industry is simply outrageous. That means CEOs salaries are 520 times as large and that doesn't even include any other forms of compensation.

So should entry level fast food jobs get the same salary as CEOs and business owners? Why even try working up the ladder when you can scrub dishes and make a fortune. It's so naive. But you need that instant gratification.

About the White House climate report, since when have they been right about anything? It's pathetic there are still people willing to swallow their shit.
As Judge Judy would say, "just do yourself a favor and step outside, you're irritating me."

I'm more interested in how this walkout is being done on a Thursday and not on a Saturday when it would have much greater financial impact on the employers. I'm also interested in how many of these people will still have jobs on Friday, or I guess I should say I'm interested how many fast food places have signs up in the backroom that remind employees they'll be fired for no-shows. There are plenty of people who will take those jobs. I bet a lot of them are going through the pre-screening right now in anticipation of this walkout.

You can't have a job like fast food and expect it to give you the two kids and dog and white picket fence. It's a transient job by design. High turnover and few full-time opportunities means fewer raises, fewer benefits to pay out, etc. They don't want you to stay. If you want more money, go to school or learn a trade. Do something other than scream and stage protests until someone else solves your problem for you. If you want a better life, go get it. Yes, it's terrible that these employees get paid so little but they are the ones staying and they are the ones doing nothing to improve their lives when you can get a college degree with no upfront cost.

But when people do take advantage of that, what do many of them do? They get a great career with great pay, and squander it. My wife keeps in touch with one of the students she met in her nursing classes, and this woman had, had, a $55,000 a year position and lost it because she "couldn't afford" to go up to a BSN when state requirements changed. She also celebrated getting her associate's degree by buying a $60,000 car, and bought another one a year later because she wanted the newer one.

On the other hand, I make $26,000 a year and I own my home and car. In fact, I owned them back when I was at my last job making $22,000. Sure, my car is 10 years old but I take care of it and it takes care of me right back. I don't need a status car. I need a car that gets me where I need to go. I don't need a house so large that I don't even use half of it. I need a house to hold my stuff and keep rain off of me while I sleep. I also owned these before I got married, and we still pay for our needs solely from my income and save most of her larger income because neither of us really like working and in 15 or 20 years we figure we might stop. Yes, we are saving our own money for retirement. I don't trust that any employer or Social Security will be there for me when I want to retire and neither does she.

I know I went into a tirade here but my point is that the problem is much bigger than people making crap for income at part-time jobs designed to be short-term. A good life is won with discipline, financial planning, and the willingness to do what it takes to fix the problem yourself. I'm far from rich but my needs are met and then some because I put in the effort to better myself. I didn't whine about how much my early jobs sucked while doing nothing to qualify myself for better work. I certainly didn't get into a situation where I needed more money than I made from my crappy job and then walked out of it.
This is the oldest fucking argument and I am sick of it. You realize how close minded and ignorant it sounds? The world is not as black and white as it is. With fewer and fewer jobs out there, and more minimum wage jobs as the only option for more and more people out there. School, college costs money, and lots and lots of money, and doesn't guarantee a good job at all. Who's going to foot the bill considering the crippling debt it puts most students in? Oh that's right, just learn a trade easy breasy right?! It's not a matter of cozy life for these people, it's a matter of fucking survival you god damn twat!

Not everyone is privileged or lucky as you buddy. Not everyone has a car, or a home for that matter. Or a wife with income. Yes you may have been "smart" with your financials, but minimum wage doesn't even give you enough to be smart with because at the end of the week it's pay the rent or buy groceries or buy groceries.

Don't give me the same old bullshit diatribe about how poor people spend their money poorly so they stay poor. It's a god damn empty argument with no merit. The fact is that with the economy in the shitter, more jobs being shipped overseas or given to illegals, it's all that is becoming available for people. The middle class is nearly eradicated and with an archaic tax policy for the wealthy, they stay wealthy while the common folk are getting castrated financially. Fewer benefits, fewer incentives to spend what you little you earn, it's survival for people.

And yea, there are plenty of people who will take these jobs cause that's all there is fucking left in this shit hole country. Manufacturing is gone thanks to globalization and cheap foreign labor. Food prices are skyrocketing (almost to $5 a gallon for milk), and gas won't get cheaper. Slowly but surely, this country is becoming the United States of Mexico because of retarded amnesty policies that gives all those wet backs citizenship while the government continues to neglect it's own born and bred citizens. Oh I'm sorry was that racist? Sorry, but this is the only country that caters to foreigners more than it's citizens.

My mother got evicted from her house because she fell ill and couldn't work anymore. And because the bank somehow thought she could pay the outrageous mortgage, they refused to refinance, so she had no choice but to move in with her sister.

You can preach all about discipline, financial planning and willingness to do anything but when more and more people are literally on the brink of being homeless, something has to change and your dumb, tired argument is moot.

News Comments > On Advanced Warfare Realism and Sledghammer's Cancelled Game
2. Re: On Advanced Warfare Realism and Sledghammer's Cancelled Game May 5, 2014, 10:10 Rattlehead
 

There's also more from that article on MP1st where they got their hands on the print issue where Sledgehammer discusses some of the history of the project, saying part of the reason Sledgehammer bosses parted EA out of fear of "franchise fatigue." Oddly, in light of that concern, they quote Glen Schofield saying their cancelled game in a Vietnam setting was "definitely going for some Dead Space moments."

Ok, am I reading this right, they left EA in fear of franchise fatigue and went to CoD? Is it me or should this be irony of the century award? Also, that Vietnam game sounds cool.
