No, it's time to realize that a currency backed by no one isn't a good idea. Long past due on that actually.

Fiat Currencies are debt-based, controlled by central banks and the state. The dollar lost 97% of its value via inflation since the Federal Reserve was created and after leaving the gold-standard.

Big governments inflate their national currencies to finance overspending and national debts. The worst is hyper-inflation.

Politicians of the Weimar Republic chose to repay their national debt via hyper-inflation which made their currency worthless.

Bitcoin does not require central banks, it has a finite supply (not based on debt), and it can be used without any bank or other payment service (no additional fees or bureaucracy).

Bitcoin is a digital currency for free trade and a free world (not controlled by big governments or Keynesian central bankers), it's here to stay and will become more valuable as it matures.

Cutter "No, release schedules are for responsible businesses."

Yes, but it's more important to deliver a solid game that isn't buggy or disappointing.
Extra kickstarter goals adds to the overall development time.

It's better when a developers has enough funds to polish the game to make it better, instead of rushing it to meet a deadline.

People will remember a game for how good it is, not that it met a deadline.

Blizzard is so successful because they take enough time to make their games the best they can.

Cutter "I think it's wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly." - Steven Wright

There's plenty of Monopoly clones. Many aren't as good as the original.
Bureaucrats of the state give certain big companies monopolies (cronyism).

A "state-backed" web-search engine. Means the state will more likely influence search results and censor content.

They should add Sandbox Features to SWTOR! There's too much theme park stuff already.

Sadly the SWTOR engine lags a lot with open-world PVP.

Wardell decided to dismiss that lawsuit with prejudice in exchange for Miseta dismissing her lawsuit with prejudice and writing an apology letter that you can read at the Kotaku link in this news post.

Reading is tough. But I believe in you guys.

I know that Sepharo, but I disagree with this settlement. She got away with her scandalous behaviour too easily.

You said it dude, this is a case where she got fired and decided to lash out crying sexual harassment because she's a women and thinks that she can get away with it. Its a typical case of cry rape and prove you didn't do it when its supposed to be innocent until proven.

Yes, many innocent men's lives have been ruined by false abuse and rape allegations. False rape allegations without proof destroy innocent men's lives, careers and reputation.
An estimated 41% of rape allegations are false.

False rape and abuse allegations also make it more dangerous for business owners to hire women.

False accusations are also used during divorce by the ex-wife to gain advantages with divorce and sole-custody of the children and cut the father out of their lives.

The secret and corrupt family courts often consider men as guilty first with abuse accusations even without proof.

Stardock sued her for deleting their analytics and marketing data before leaving the company without notice

She should've at least paid all damages for deleting the company's marketing and analytic data. And also if there's no evidence of sexual harassment.

A famous false rape allegation case is Brian Banks:

Banks, 27, signed with the Falcons on Wednesday, giving him an opportunity he said he did not believe would be possible when he spent five years in prison and five years on probation following his conviction of rape and kidnapping charges a decade ago.
.............
Gibson recanted her claim and offered to help Banks clear his name after he was out of prison. That helped lead to the conviction being overturned by a California court and Banks' record cleared on May 12, 2012.
.............
"It's almost impossible to explain, the feeling of not having freedom, to be stripped away of your freedom, of your dignity, the respect you once had," he said. "To lose it all and watch the world pass you by as you sit inside a prison cell, knowing you shouldn't be there, knowing you're there because of another person's lies, to lose it all and then get it all back, it's a very humbling, spiritual feeling that you just don't want to take anything for granted.

False rape and abuse accusers are punished very lightly.

The problem of sentencing disparities is compounded by an epidemic of false accusations:

205 (and growing) wrongly convicted people have been exonerated by DNA evidence since the beginning of the Innocence Project.

204 of the wrongly convicted were men.

Most of them were falsely imprisoned for rape.

Link

As we saw in the Duke Lacrosse rape case fiasco, false accusers are rarely prosecuted and when they are it is only as a misdemeanor (at most), while rape itself is vigorously prosecuted as a felony. The Duke false accuser, Crystal Gayle Mangum went on to commit assault, arson and finally murder before authorities made a good faith intervention.

One attorney speaking at premiere for the movie, After Innocence, estimates that there are between 20,000 and 100,000 wrongly convicted still in prison.

Valid research puts the estimated false rape reporting rate at 41%

I didn't know him, except from Gamespot and that show. Didn't bother to go to GiantBomb. It's tragic for him and his family and friends to end so early.

The rumored cause is too much physical activities which gave him a heart-attack since he was exhausted during his honeymoon and vacation.

He was clearly very overweight. So when he did much physical activities during vacation, honeymoon that he normally wasn't used to in his daily schedule, that can have very negative impact on his heart condition.

Rest in peace.

"The game industry has a history of depicting female characters inappropriately"

Actually many games have done that appropriately such as Elder Scrolls.
Many games throughout history were not meant to be taken too seriously, and have depicted male characters "inappropriately too" such as the various male action heroes.

For example: Kratos (God of War), Lo Wang (Shadow Warrior) have perfect muscular bodies and fight life-threatening battles without significant armor, and naked chests exposed. Also Prince of Persia (The Sands of Time).

Primarily male characters are put in life-threatening events and depicted as disposable in games.

So whether a game chooses to have realistic armor or not is up to developers. And its wrong to stereotype the whole industry as making scantly clad characters.

People like sexy, hot, handsome characters. If they're all fat and ugly less people will buy the product. In case you don't like a game, don't play or get it and you can give developers feedback.

That's a very expensive hooker.

jacobvandy "They could have the greatest idea for a game ever, but nobody will touch it with a name like that. If they don't swallow their pride/suddenly find some common sense"

People will buy it if the game is good enough.

Also prostitution is the oldest profession in human history and it should be legal between consenting adults.

"The Creepy Side Of E3 - Kotaku."

There's some creepy and ignorant guys (and gals) at an event, but the thing is Kotaku frequently publishes such articles which negatively stereotypes guys in the games industry.

The reason is Kotaku is owned by the same parent company Gawker Media which also owns the notorious feminist propaganda site called Jezebel.

For example how many times has Kotaku published articles about misandry in video-games or how male gamers have long been regarded as losers, nerds with no-life, and wrongly blamed for societal problems: very few if anything.

And that is why Kotaku sucks nowadays.

One could argue that a modeling career promotes the objectification of men and women. At E3, the primary role of women is to serve as eye candy. If you're a semi-attractive female at E3, there's a pretty good chance you'll be mistaken for a booth babe. I know because that happened to my friend at this E3. If there were no booth babes, this wouldn't happen.

People Voluntarily choose to become models. They reap financial benefits with their attractiveness, some women become super-models.

Whether a company hires booth-babes or booth-dudes to promote their products is their choice and they have every right in a free society.

If you're mistaken for something you're not is no justification to then stereotype all men as being ignorant in that regard.

Most dirty, dangerous jobs are done by men. Trash collector, plumber, soldier, sewage worker, miner etc. 95% of workplace deaths are men, and consequently men have 6 year lower life-expectancy.
The feminists don't care about those things though, because it affects men.

The author is a pro-feminist who's overly offended about anything that is not according to the flawed, one-sided feminist ideology and Political Censorship.

70% of consumer spending is done by women (while men work more full-time till retirement. Companies primarily cater to women.

Also men are mostly portrayed as idiots and incompetent on TV shows, suicide rate is 3 times higher for men and 95% of workplace deaths are men.
There's now millions of fatherless homes in America, many decent fathers aren't allowed to be with their kids after divorce by corrupt family courts, yet must pay high alimony and child support or be jailed.
The feminists don't complain about that when it's in their favor.

The feminist propaganda of Anita Sarkeesian has been thoroughly debunked by Thunderf00t.

Feminism versus FACTS (RE Damsel in distress)

In this video I take to task Feminist Frequencys latest video on 'Tropes vs women: the damsel in distress'

I have two main problems with her video, the first is the way she takes a very, VERY natural response, like wanting to protect your loved ones, as for instance a damsel in distress, and turns this into objectifying the damsel in distress. This is simply bollox. Most people are perfectly capable of wanting to protect a loved one without thinking of them as an object.

Secondly is turning the games industry into some patriarchal conspiracy out to subjugate and objectify women. This is simply delusional, the games industry only cares about turning a profit, which it does by turning out fun games that people like to play.

I also find it rather weak that she holds up the 'pity shield' and adopts professional victimhood as seen in her ted talk. The conspiracy she paints is pretty paranoid. The reality is, pretty much everyone who wildly expresses an controversial opinion forcefully on the internet gets hatemail. In Anitas case, I think the majority of hatemail she got was simply because she was talking bollox. Thats always kinda a button issue on the internet!

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJeX6F-Q63I

Anita Sarkeesian claims over and over again that there is some conspiracy by male gamers to keep it a 'boys club'. Personally, whenever I played the only thing that mattered was how good you were.

And Yup, I think this is very like 'atheism plus' which basically tries to hijack a larger community with some personal political agenda.

No it doesn't, and Wildman is much more ambitous, modder friendly with a much more experienced and talented team.

I was disappointed with Total Annihilation--such great potential, such poor execution--such an overall disappointment.

Total Annihilation is one of THE BEST real time strategy games in history. A real classic. Chris Taylor is a legend of the games industry.

WaltC wrote on Jan 19, 2013, 17:42:
I'd like to see GPG and Chris make it. But Wildman honestly looks to me like an idea sketched on the back of a napkin sometime between Christmas 2012 and New Year's day 2013.

Wildman is actually an original and ambitious game where they'll combine best aspects of their previous games, learn from mistakes, and use backer input while producing it.


WaltC wrote on Jan 19, 2013, 17:42:
Chris: remember what you did *right* with DS1 and strive for that again--"too short" is a far more egregious sin than "too long."

I'm not worried about "too short", cause Wildman supports modding so you can make your own game-worlds and game-modes to play for free or sell.
