Escorted from the building seems an extreme overreaction, unless he'd been warned several time previously. Of course the banning of his channel is absolute nonsense.

It is pretty brutal there have been, what, four total Five Nights games released in a single calendar year?

At the same time, they're a decent price, people love them and you can't hate on the guy for finding success. It's just, in today's gaming world where more people are paying attention to predatory, anti-consumer practices in gaming, this stands out a bit and catches a lot of flak that the bigger companies deserve much more.
And this is exactly what I wanted to say. I'm happy for the developer that he's found so much success, but releasing 4 games in a year certainly warrants raising an eyebrow.

If people keep buying them, keep making them. Hell, I'd pump them out as fast as possible myself. It's a niche genre, and niche game. People are bound to get tired of it, no matter if you put out 4 or a year or 4 a decade. If it's selling like hotcakes, work 80 hour weeks and keep raking in that dough, because success can be fleeting. It's not like these games are going to become some kind of classic legacy that he can trample on by cheapening them up like Dragon Age or something. They are as cheapened as they can get. Fast little jump scare games that people finish and tire of pretty quickly. As for the haters, just let 'em keep on hating. Most of them are probably still working at Dollar Tree themselves then spend the other 16 hours a day trolling Youtube and forums.

As Cutter said, paywall. Works for the Wall Street Journal and a lot of other news sites. I wouldnt be opposed to a 1$ a month fee for Blues, which i'm willing to bet is 10000x more then he'd ever see from the likes of me even if i were to click on the ads (leaving Amazon links out of it)

Eh, I'm not going to pay $1 a month to 50 websites.

The "ad blocking" thing is scaring the pants off of lots of websites, not just gaming sites. Right now, a really low percentage of people have ad blockers, but more are installing them every day. I don't mind looking at 1-2 image ads, but these auto-play videos, 30 second videos, intrusive ads are a no-no, and of course there have been a myriad of security problems with malware injected into ads from 3rd party sites, even on AAA websites that are supposed to know better. Maybe when you advertisers get your shit together and agree on some kind of regulations, security measures, or code of conduct, I'll white list your website.

Pretty cool. I actually had a play through I'd never finished loaded, so loaded it up at 2560x1440 resolution. Looks great, but the camera is spinning around in circles and is stuck on the ceiling for some reason. No controllers or anything attached, but it seems quite a few people are having this issue. Oh well.

$200 for something that cost $400+ seems...not that great? At least not really mentionable.

I know compared to what Gamestop usually gives you for games and consoles it seems like a deal, but in the grand scheme of things, meh.

I might check into it then. I haven't bothered with Hulu due to the amount of ads on it. Although I pay for satellite TV, I also pay $25 a month for a DVR just to skip ads. when I buy online video services, I expect no ads.

If you come into my store, saying you want MY promotiondeal... but for another store, I would tell you to piss the fuck off too plus insult your intelligence. Wtf do think, Flak?!

Besides... Steam, Uplay... Potato, potato. Why give a shit?
It's like saying "Ford, Chevy, who cares?" I like Steam, I don't like uPlay.

I've got two of these Batman games sitting in my Steam Library. Erm...Arkham Asylum and City. I think I played about 2-3 hours of City, but it really was monotonous and just lost interest and freed up HD space by deleting it. I dunno, they just didn't grab me, and this one looked the same.

I think the term "SJW" is not referring to an *actual* warrior for social justice, but rather someone that is just professional outraged on the behalf of others, or attempting to garner fame for themselves at the expense of a real or imagined cause. Like Martin Luther King, Jr. might be a real warrior for social justice. People complaining about the cross dresser fable in Pillars of Eternity are merely professionally offended trolls.

He reminds me of a villian from Power Rangers

Yeah, he does look like that Ivan Ooze guy from the Power Rangers movie. I hope they spruce this up in post production, because those photos look like someone tried to make a fan-made X-Men movie back in the 90s. Psylocke looks like crap, Storm looks like crap, and Apocalypse looks like a blue Odo from Deep Space Nine.

Maybe this is some kind of joke and red herrings while they make the real movie.

Hopefully it hangs around until the next Steam sale. I'll probably pick it up at $5-$10.

Did everyone buy the giant barrel of lube on prime day? That's all I saw on sale at a big discount...

I had a really slow day at work, so I could basically just refresh deals over and over. Basically the sale broke down into:

1. Doorbuster, really good deals. Even if you clicked on these the second they came up, it processed for about 20 seconds, then told you the item is sold out, waitlist is full, take a hike, bozo.
2. Lightning deals on stuff. Usually went like this: MSRP: $100, Amazon price: $65. Lightning deal: $59. Not really that great.
3. Stuff like the Amazon gift cards, Kindles, etc. that sold out early in the morning.

All-in-all, it was merely meh. I think most of the items on "sale" were discontinued or last year items being cleared out like a giant rummage sale.

Who the hell looks at porn on their phone? I've got one intent when looking at porn, and riding on the bus or sitting in a restaurant is going to defeat that single purpose. I scratch my head at people that just look at some tits at random points in the day, then get back to work.

As someone in the cybersecurity field, the other item of note (aside from the drug issue/dont work to work for "the man" issue)..is that the DoD/Feds pay about 70% salary compared to civilian sector.

For example:
I make 97k a year right now doing Information Assurance for the DoD (Air Force contractor).. if I switch to the civilian sector, I have a job at 140k right now lined up. Now lower that to 70k for new people (or about there).. versus 100k for the same new person, just in the civilian world.

Why not take the higher paying job? I like the environment and the people.. being prior Air Force myself.

That's because you have cretin...I mean certain politicans that blab on and on about "government spending" and want to underfund the IRS, EPA, and other agencies so they can't compete with the private sector. Instead of wasting trillions and trillions on useless wars in other countries, how about we funnel some of that money back into revamping our cyber security for the entire country? (government and private).

Even after the government lost all of their *own* information due to poor security on their part, they want to make us all less secure by building back doors into our hardware and software. Then when you get hacked, they shrug and say "national security, good luck with that identity theft problem though, citizen."

Wonder if we'll see Fury X improvements...

I'm still scratching my head at 4GB of vram on a $650 card, when games are hitting 4+ last year and this year already, and the card was touted as some kind of 4k monster.

It'll probably come as a shock to AT&T, but $10 a month is about all 1.5 Mbps is worth anyhow. The only reason this is considered a "deal" is because of the absolute sorry state of broadband and competition in the US.

Hilarious. Love the shots of Kanye pouting as he tends to do. Just goes to show the talent divide from real artists in the past and corporate "artists" of today. Kanye isn't fit to carry that sweat towel Freddie had.
