I would not call putting in a female farmer skin a feature. They could easily model and patch that into previous 2-3 farming sim games.

You could say the same for pretty much any addition in annual iteration simulations.

They probably made a point of including her because it's a video about a new version of their game, they're probably going to feature new stuff - but more significantly, your tone seems to be dismissive of feminism yet if "because feminism" is the reason why games don't ignore women's existence then feminism in video games is very important.

I've used the start menu insta-search since about Vista; just press start and type the first few words. Much faster than the All Programs section ever was, even when I carefully categorised everything.

The only icons on my desktop are games I'm presently playing (The Witcher 3 is brilliant, BTW) as I typically don't want any windows open then.

The article doesn't specify, it just says it has been pulled. It's probably sensitivity, or avoiding criticism for perceived insensitivity, rather than scapegoating.

Is de Maiziere taken seriously? Apparently this isn't the first time he has complained about computer games.

I'd be 99% certain it's sensitivity.

But, one of the largest sensitivities is gamers sensitivities over gaming. I mean, we've been down that road before, but anything that can be perceived as a slight to games is immediately taken as one by some people. I know some that think the media has a deliberate slander campaign against Pokemon Go because it's a video game...

There's a persecution complex amongst many gamers. I'd like to say that it is entirely understandable, but as I'm a gamer I can't truly be objective. We have definitely faced demonisation, but this has reduced hugely from the Columbine and Jackie T days.

I watched the Hatred release play out with interest. I felt this was just something that had to happen, sooner or later someone would covet controversy, and that the reaction would be interesting now that gaming is more widely understood. I was pleased by how little there was - I don't remember any reaction from the general media, only some Polygon hand-wringing.

"No Man's Content" is going to put a huge dent in the value of the term "procedural" when used to hype any future game.

My expectations are fairly low, hence the snark, but I will reserve judgement until it's out and we see what there truly is to do and how varied the galaxy is.

Elite Dangerous curbed my enthusiasm for proc-gen because despite being a really good game its proc-gen felt unsatisfying to me and there wasn't enough sense of progression. Maybe NMS will provide more to do to progress, rather than get a new ship that feels pretty much the same and go to new solar systems that feel pretty much the same.

What is a Florp? Is it's nonsensical-ness is the point or is there something more to it?

* I don't know much about the game, this is probably unfair.

The game should be renamed to "GIGO".

"Garbage In, Garbage Out"?

I once wrote an email web client called Gigo based on that

If banks can create money as they see fit, then why is it a crime if I steal some of it?

Pretty sure banks can't just create money. Countries can though.

Think again...

"This article explains how the majority of money in the modern economy is created by commercial banks making loans."

From the bankofengland.co.uk website's quarterly bulletin 2014/Q1

I was going to link to that. It's an interesting read, and the Bank of England aren't prone to "out there" theories.

"When a bank makes a loan, for example to someone taking out a mortgage to buy a house, it does not typically do so by giving them thousands of pounds worth of banknotes. Instead, it credits their bank account with a bank deposit of the size of the mortgage. At that moment, new money is created."

Hacking is a cost of having the great open platform that is PC gaming. We already have consoles. If that's what you want, go play on those instead! I'm not ready to sacrifice all the advantages like modding and fan patches just so that I don't meet a hacker from time to time.

Slick already talked about this. If you don't agree with his comments, refute them. Don't repeat what he's already responded too, you're just taking the conversation round in a circle.

But that does absolutely nothing to discount the irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles.
Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online. Serious mode used to mean a LAN party. Pretty hard to get away with this shit if a guy can watch over your shoulder.

You don't need to be playing in a "serious competitive scene" for hacking to affect your enjoyment.

It seems both of the major parties are in disarray. Kind of funny actually.

What would be really funny if a 3rd party snuck in and stole the election.

Personally I think all this anti-Trump stuff is pretty much nonsense. You can't do worse on foreign policy than Obama has, the entire middle east mess is his fault, it did not fall apart until well after Bush departed.

Maybe I will vote libertarian this year, can't be any worse than either of those representing the major parties.

The present mess in the middle east is what those against the war in Iraq warned would happen if Bush/Blair invaded in 2003. Hell, it's what Donald Rumsfeld was warning in the 90s. Even the time frame, 10 - 15 years after the invasion was predicted. By the Onion.

Seriously, a fucking satire site had a better grasp of foreign policy than George W. Bush.

If you want real change - not a slogan - you need to get involved in grassroots movements and then keep at it, not just pop in for a minute because it`s summer and it`s nice to go to a protest and tweet about it on a gadget.

You mean spend time and effort? Isn't it much easier to complain about how you're not represented despite doing absolutely nothing to even indicate what representing you would mean?

There's a reason why democracy is called the least worst political system - because as much of a mess as it can be, the alternatives are still worse.

Twitter should spend more time trying to track down and punish people who say shit like this. I assume it was on twitter. May have been direct to Blizzard via the game or the forums. Sadly banning people like Milo seems to be their priority.

Law enforcement should, and did, track this person down.

Twitter should, and did, ban someone for repeatedly breaking the ToS.

Cutter wants to pay the cheapest price, because why should anyone get it cheaper?
Cutter wants the highest standard of living, because why should anyone get better?
Cutter doesn't (want to) understand the correlation.

I'm sure Cutter practices what he preaches. When he goes out for a Thai meal of Panang curry, rice, and spring rolls, and the bill comes in for $20, he leaves $2, since "Charging some people a lot more and some a lot less depending on where they live for the same meal is really scummy.." and $2 is what it costs in Thailand.
+1
It's a hard concept for some to understand.

-1

The point is sound but the analogy doesn't work. Like El Pit says, that meal in Canada would cost more to create and also it would probably also be subject to higher regulations - additives, storage, kitchen hygiene. The cola one is better, or the Big Mac Index, with less significant changes between regions.

In fact you CAN walk into a courtroom and say "people are doing something so I should be allowed also". It's called "precedent".

LOL dude you are too funny.

Haha, no. No it's not. Precedent is specific previous court decisions, not people previously dodging court.

LOL, i linked a page that has live twitter tweets. you can click on any of them and they take you to her actual twitter page and the tweet. ...

Beamer's line "She didn't make those tweets. They were Photoshopped." was clearly referring specifically to the two tweets in his [Photoshop link. Nothing else. Your response, "LOL you think all her shit was photoshopped?", is just plain wrong. He was not referring to "all her shit".
