And this should be the end of Kotick's reign. It is extremely doubtful that Microsoft will let him stay.

First it needs to get approved, which may or may not go smoothly.

But if it does, in spite of the boiler plate 'we're leaving the existing management structure in place' language that goes into every company purchase/merger -- I give it 6 to 8 months tops before they quietly shove him out the door once complete.

Anthem? Never heard of it. Is that some sort of music game from Activision?

So what does everybody figure... 3 years tops? Or will it crash and burn in under 8 months.

So, it combines hype, trend-hopping, AND a pyramid scheme? I think we've achieved peak Molyneux.

I'm amused that someone engineered a 'mouse mover'. Whenever I'm running a long project on the work machine, and I can't afford to let it time out before the job finishes -- I just put it on the record turntable platter, weigh down the cord, and let it run at 33 1/3 rpm to keep the cursor bouncing around.

I'm shocked... SHOCKED that a brand new engineering sample that is not available on the market has outperformed a two year old chip that has already reached end of life status and is no longer being produced.

Do we care about Bioshock without Ken Levine?

After the mess that was Infinite -- a Levine free Bioshock would be preferable.

I forgot Harmonix even existed. They haven't done anything of interest since 2006.

"Wheel of Time" Could Go For Eight Seasons.

And like the books, everyone will lose interest by the middle of Season 5.

There are maybe three, possibly four people tops who will mourn his passing. His mom, the friends who drifted away before be began his free fall into grift, addiction, and spousal abuse, and the handful of kids who weren't old enough to comprehend that things were kind of fucked up.

I feel bad for those people, and I hope they eventually claw some relief and restitution out of whatever tiny portion of his estate that he did not squander before he ended himself.

No restart required. And if you already finished, it lets you back out of the end area to visit the DLC. But I left enough options unexplored the first time around that I don't mind restarting. Though I may do some creative editing to boost myself past some of the early slog.

Did they finally make it so that all the skills in the skill trees actually do something? Or is that the next patch.

Better question. Why the hell would anyone still use Norton? Or any of the companies they bought?

Most people ditched Avast and AVG years ago when they started to suck.

So, as producer, he held a big public hosting search -- had on a bunch of people who were far more interesting and engaging than he was -- and then decided he was the best person for the job anyway.

This in spite of his history of being sued (successfully) for job discrimination and sexual harassment.

Great.

Did Remedy add it as an 'Object of Power'? Or did the author have a Reed–Kellogg system breakdown while trying to find the predicate.
