So much money where does it all come from?
We're paying for democracy! never mind the bomb..
So much money what does it do?
It puts them in power where they shit on you

You don't care about the social disease
You got so much money you can do as you please
Too many people voted for you
Now you're telling us what to do

Money is power and you're so rich
You married for money to a classy bitch
Use the cash to build up a regime
The silent man behind the killing machine

Political war is an easy game
Using other people to support your aim
State your idea of your ideal state
And after they've voted it'll be too late

And when the country's in a fucking mess
They want to know the secret of your success
You never used weapons, you never used tools
But money is power and people are fools


- subhumans, 1982
Nice.

Not sure why a coroner would ever make a judgement call like that - they are scientific and factual - the rest is just hearsay.
Because in some places being a corner requires no medical training. In the UK you can become one with only legal training(barrister/solicitor). Welcome to the micky mouse system.
The fact that you're both right is what's astounding here. Coroners are there to determine the physical cause of death, nothing else. That's it. Rule out homicide, that sort of thing.

Psychological reasons are so beyond their scope, especially without extensive medical training akin to what a psychiatrist gets in 8+ years of med school, are jokingly impossible. This is insane.

DX11 support in a CODBLOPS console port? Credit where its due, even a lot of PC focused devs don't use 11 yet.
Considering how long every CoD game is on the top 10 list on Steam, they must be making millions off the PC versions.

And the game can run at higher resolutions and higher framerates on the PC

Well yeah, that's a big reason why we game on PCs in the first place, duh.

No need for any driving tests, just take away their licenses at 75. Easy, cheap and by the time I get there I'll be happy to not be driving anymore.

It will free up traffic for those who can actually drive (and save some lives).

They should take the 100 year old who did this out back and shoot him.
Fatal accidents per 1000 drivers (by age) from 2009 (National Safety Council).

Any guesses what it shows?

19-under: 38
20-24: 36
25-34: 24
35-44: 20
45-54: 20
55-64: 18
65-74: 18
75-over: 28

Yes there's a jump for the elderly, which makes them slightly worse than 25-34 year olds. However, you'd make the roads *far* safer by banning drivers under 25 than those over 75. Not to mention how many more of them there are in total.

Just sayin'...

Source
That would explain why the 40,000+ highway fatalities a year aren't all caused by the elderly?!

Now who's going to volunteer to drive around those above age 65 to where they need to go? Emphasis on the 'volunteer', as in, not paid, on demand, in the middle of the day. Like the people driving themselves at that age as it is.

Logistics.

How top of a talent do you need to be in order to make crap like Farmville?

You're missing the point. They made a fortune from crap like Farmville - that takes talent. Their talent clearly isn't in making games, it is in making money from shit games and this is what they're losing.

Ray Ban wrote on Aug 22, 2012, 17:01:
Let's not forget how difficult it is to secure funding for the kind of games we (hardcore, veterans, jaded seen-it-all) would like to play ...
That's a topic Warren Spector unintentionally hit on in the 45 minute Deus Ex Replay commentary/interview he did a few days ago.

He had to answer to no one for Deus Ex, he had entire creative control, and the funding to do it. He said his job then, besides telling Eidos to screw off because John Romero was taking the heat for the finances at Ion Storm, was: maintaining the core 'logical realworld decision making' that he wanted the game centered around, and keeping the programmers and artists from killing each other.

He even ignored the focus groups for the game. He ignores the focus groups for all his games, apparently, and doesn't read reviews (does see the metacritic score), but only observes how people play without aiding them in any way so as to refine the gameplay and levels. And can't remember how to play any of his games.

It's incredible we ever got Deus Ex the way it was. Ion Storm was a fluke, but Kickstarter has the essence of that fluke in that the developers don't have to answer to overbearing publishers with tight pursestrings.

Eidos wanted the stealth elements ripped out of Deus Ex entirely, was another example, since by Spector's own estimation only 20% of gamers were going to play it that way. He ignored them on that too, because he had that privilege. Started a pacifistic movement within Deus Ex that even got it down to a core value in the DE:HR development. A mechanic the publisher wanted tossed.

The people are only part of it. It really is all about the money.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Aug 22, 2012, 13:43:
Interplay is running pretty much on hopes and dreams and the continued means of the crooked Caen brothers to avoid getting put in jail. The company's got basically no revenue and is millions upon millions in debt but they're going to be able to put out something under Black Isle? Yeah sure. Funny enough, when I commented on this to Brian Fargo on Twitter, he told me that apparently Interplay won a number of millions of dollars in their settlement with Bethesda (I don't think they was ever revealed in the settlement itself), yet they seem to have spent none of it paying down the company's massive liabilities. Likely the Caens just pocketed it and are hoping to string investors along by making it look like they're bringing one of Interplay's former bright spots back. These two so deserve to be penniless.
If it wasn't for your source, and knowing the Caens... what scumbags. Absolute, incredible, scumbaggery. KHAAAAAN(S).
