MS finds out all the talent has left the building already.

As always, media acquisitions these days are about intellectual property rights.

Microsoft will be acquiring or creating a film/television studio (once again) sometime in the future to compete with Apple and Sony. Sony's turning their gaming properties into valuable movie franchises and Apple is doing alright with Apple TV+. You don't spend the money on these acquisitions if you don't have plans to monetize them, and those plans probably have little to do with the dev studios or the talent in those studios

Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs-the T-shirt, Spaceballs-the Coloring Book, Spaceballs-the Lunch box, Spaceballs-the Breakfast Cereal, Spaceballs-the Flame Thrower!

One company throwing this much capital around and obtaining a dominant market position through mergers/acquisitions is never a good thing for consumers in the long run. Sony is going to get slowly squeezed when this deal completes in 2023 and Microsoft makes CoD and etc exclusive to their platforms. Microsoft has been playing nice under Phil Spencer but eventually they will turn the screws on consumers in the name of shareholder profits. I wonder when we'll start hearing antitrust noise, I guess politicians don't care much about the gaming industry unless someone puts a naked woman in a game.

Lucasarts and Marvel would like to disagree.

As for "the squeeze".... eh... I doubt that COD will be a system exclusive (maybe a timed one), but Sony's in house exclusives pretty much dominate anything that Microsoft has put out exclusive wise since the Xbox 360.

On my weight loss journey, I reached a milestone today, 179. I hadn't been in the 170s for quite some time. This week I'm down 3 pounds and 8 pounds for the past month—45 total pounds in 120 days (since September 18th). I also started to notice my XL pants were too loose. I'm using the last hole on a belt to hold them up, but at some point, I'll need to downgrade to L.

Congrats you skinny bitch. I'll make sure to put a life vest on you if we walk onto anyone's deck so ya don't fall through the slats

Reckless creator making click bait content.

So he has a parachute, put camera's on all parts of the plane for exiting, had a selfie stick out for the parachuting, had hiking boots on, didn't even attempt to land the plane, no footage of a mayday call, ya see some smoke when he gets to the wreckage but a fire in that sorta brush in this time of year.

Just canceled Netflix the other day. Didn't even know they were raising rates, but we just didn't watch it enough to justify the price. I think we both watch more Disney Plus and HBO Max than Netflix, and now both of those are cheaper than Netflix.

Yeah, not sure why Netflix is still the most popular streaming service. Their content hasn't been good for years. They have the same crappy movies on rotating cycles, and some of their best series were canceled way too prematurely. After binging a season of their few good series, there's nothing left to watch

That's the thing.... if you're still playing catch up on series it's fine. Hell I'm still playing catch up on the Suprano's

Slowly getting to the point where mods offer more actual features than the base game....

Well 3 things were cut and admitted to 1) Police, 2)Tram System, 3)Car Customization.

Happy about this mod as I'm on my second playthrough and just finished every bit of content in the game besides Rogue, Takemura and just met Panam, and starting to dig into vehicles and the main quest.

So it all comes back to "owning a game". That NFT is only as good as long as the game is supported and runs.

Far Cry had a really weak story and cut content, and a complete waste of an amazing actor.

Can't really argue with the rest of this comment...but I'm pretty sure they recently put the Danny Trejo stuff back in (if that's what you're referring to).

Cut content wise is the entire downtown area around the "palace". And Danny Trejo content I didn't account for in my comment. Giancarlo Esposito is an amazing actor, but I think he was poorly written for in FC6, and didn't hold a candle to Seed or Vaas. I was hoping for a moment of "softness" trying to explain to his son about why he was doing what he did, but it never arrived. Vaas and Seed had layers and depth, where Castillo was just a straight edge asshole dictator.

Never change, Half Elf. Never change.

EA Battlefield 2042. Nuff Said.

But seriously, every big studio game that was been released on PC the last 2 years has had major issues, content cut, bugs, etc.

So let's take Halo and Forza that were released. Halo had a huge lack of content, and even the end missions were just memory re-hashes from the previous game. Forza for the PC has still major issue with it's multiplayer and lack of any sort of voice chat. Battlefield was just a cluster, Far Cry had a really weak story and cut content, and a complete waste of an amazing actor.

Now granted I'd love to see that they can pull some magic out of their hat and ship a great game, but the press release and the timing of the release of the game has me not holding my breath.

I'll eventually get Far Cry 6 but I'm really trying to hold out for a new PC build to do so. Far Cry 4 was my new game to test on my then new PC which was like 6 years ago now? I would love to fire up Far Cry 6 on a new PC build but yeah, seeing as how those gfx card prices are looking, I don't see that happening anytime soon...


So many better games to build a PC for (and honestly skip 6, or rent it via Ubisoft+

Awesome of you to mention what article you're referring to. sigh 🙄

When I was a younger man, I made the decision to never donate to a sperm bank no matter how broke I was. I reasoned that future me wouldn't want to deal with some rando showing on my doorstep X years later saying "Surprise! You're my biological father!" It is not a decision I have come to regret as I am not currently legally aware of any children I have fathered.


Well sperm donation isn't a "show up shoot get paid and leave" thing.

So I have to ask.. what sorta kids WOULD a burrito have?
