That's the eBay business model in a nutshell. "We'll address the obvious scam listing just as soon as we finish collecting our listing fees from the user in question. And by address, we mean we will let them repeat the exercise 50 or 60 more times rather than ban them or block the activity in any way. To combat this deficiency, we will issue a press release about the problem -- and will emphasis that we already have a rule against this, even though we only enforce it when subjected to media attention."

Never use eBay.

Downside, none of Yellow Brick folks featured have done anything in recent years that engenders any sense of goodwill. They are products of the machine that they serve, and while I would like to believe they have the potential to do something great when freed from the constraints of a larger publisher -- They're going to have to work harder to prove it given their past track records. Upside, no David Gaider.

I must have reached the bitter-old-man phase of gaming. Where the hype does less to interest me in the game, and does more to just make me sick of hearing about it.

Let me know when the game is feature complete, fully patched, and on sale. Then I'll consider it.

I didn't realize there was a 4, let alone DLC for it. I thought 3 had effectively killed the franchise. Glad to see I am wrong.

I don't know why the CEO bothered to apologize.

Saying 'Please don't leave, we'll do better, pinky swear' rings hollow when none of the people who earn them their viewership ad money have anywhere else to go. It doesn't bring back the deleted content, it doesn't undo the invalid strikes. All it does is put the responsibility on the creator, which is where it has always been, and promise to provide them with a more streamlined process to find out exactly why what is happening is still ENTIRELY THEIR FAULT, even when it isn't.

Let's see. Youtube. People like that. It's free, and anybody can contribute content to it.
And Tik Tok. People like that. It's free, and anybody can contribute content to it.

How do we capitalize on this?

I know, let's create a short form video platform, throw a bunch of money at the same people who create content for mediums that aren't primarily Youtube and Tik Tok to produce material for it -- and make it NOT FREE! HOW CAN THIS FAIL!

I have this great idea. I want to cook a chicken dinner in a hot spring.

Hmm. Website doesn't seem to address this scenario, so it must be ok.
Gosh. I keep seeing all these signs telling me I shouldn't be here, but that couldn't possibly be applying to me.
Oh, wait, there is this bit in the pamphlet that says don't put things in the thermal features -- but that just means harmful things, right?
Maybe I should actually, ask someone in charge. Like a ranger or something before I do this... Naaaaaaah.

Oh wait, now I'm getting written up for a ticket, fined, I have a court appearance and am now banned from the park?

HOW COULD THIS HAVE POSSIBLY HAPPENED TO ME?

A "veteran" team, they say. You mean, like the people that made Dragon Age 2?

Give it another month, they'll probably make it free to play in a desperate attempt to have any players at all.

I guess, to be fair, now that CRYSTAL DYNAMICS and SQUARE ENIX have lowered the bar with their latest online multiplayer extravaganza -- Even if Anthem fixes nothing, they still look better by comparison.

Not even worth playing for free. They could offer minimum wage to try and entice people to play this trash heap and people would still abandon it after the first day.

If you hire a beta tester, then you can reasonably expect them to go in with the intention of finding bugs, and then presenting them to you in a clear and concise format that will allow you to categorize, rank, and eventually fix said bugs. The quality of work is reflected by the cost of the contract.

If you sell a beta and make the buyer your tester, then you can reasonably expect to get a bunch of people who are there with the intention to sight-see, and who will then present you with a long, rambling, and unfocused list of all the things they liked and didn't like, whether or not they are bugs. You then have to waste your time sifting through this to try and figure out if anything is important and/or actionable.

It is basically the equivalent of doing screen tests for a movie. It will give the folks in marketing something to do, but it sure as shit never makes for a better product.

Apple immediately entered into talks with Capcom to license Phoenix Wright to bolster their defense, while Epic reportedly approached Capcom with a revenue sharing deal in an attempt to license their lesser known Judgment title...

I'm sure that valuable insight from someone who was ousted from the company 18 years ago is a clear and accurate assessment of where things currently stand. Granted, he is still a stockholder, but for the most part this article is speculative clickbait that is neigh unreadable without an adblocker.

M35 Mako bouncy driving, constant elevator loading screen filler, and endless loot management were just part of the game. Let new players suffer like the original players did. They certainly beat the hell out of the planetary sonogram game and universal ammo that were introduced later on down the road. :-P

Oh yeah. Spotify. There's a company that really sets the standard when it comes to fair compensation for artists. 16,000,000 plays? Here's your fraction of a penny. But we're happy to stick it to apple if it means we get to pocket a bit more of our passthrough. What, you think we're going to share that with you?
