I... uh... Half those screenshots I could barely tell the difference between the overhaul and the original. A few I literally couldn't tell the difference.

Making a boring game in an overused genre and expecting it to be super successful is one thing.
But then trying to salvage it, is very... special.
But oh well, maybe it will delay them from ruining other IPs.

Any reason for me to finish Andromeda? I think I got to the ice planet and forgot pretty much everything that happened and had to restart a year or two later.

The high point of Andromeda is the combat, which is the best it has been in the series. If you're not really enjoying just blasting the baddies, there's not a lot of reason to play.
Say what?
The combat was boring as hell. Very simple and easy. Only the technology advancement system was worse. Yeah and, well, the dialogue.

That is one of the most amazing railroad models I have ever seen.
It should be after 26 years.
Dusting it off is a nightmare, though.

They claim they want to use AI to predict your actions and thus lower the latency.
They call it "negative lag".

I dont see an issue finding out what went wrong.
Go to Metacritic or Steam > bad user reviews

Several things come up again and again. Pretty straight forward.

Blizzard Adds President Xi To 'Overwatch' Roster.

As if you needed any more reason to boycott ActiBlizz.

When you have to say this, you *know* you've made the wrong choice:

Blizzard has denied that the move was made to appease China.

To be clear, that's a satirical article.
Its a whole satirical site. Quite funny too, but then I saw this. How is that satire?

So, in reality, your complaint is they punished him at all, not that they didn't reduce the punishment after they apologized. That said, I might be willing to agree he shouldn't have been punished at all and I definitely agree Blizzard has looked bad at very step during this issue. But they did reduce the punishment... 2+2 still equals 4.
100% on fine and 50% on time is massive in my book. Dude broke the rules in their house, what are they supposed to do.
Lets ban you for 6 months for breaking house rules with a very calm, non-insulting verbal outbreak, in a similar political statement-manner against totalitarianism, for the first time and see what your reaction would be. Walmart, any Twitch channel, any game, local AA meetings, this website. Your choice. Empathy isnt your strong point, is it?

I am talking about this topic because I am informed about it. That it was reduced is very old news. I knew that of course. 6 months is still a lot. And after an apology everyone expected it to be reduced further or be completely revoked. It wasnt. AKA hollow apology.

Yep
They also decreased the length of time he was banned.

All of it was posted here, but probably hasn't been updated over on oneangrygamer and the /Reddit faux outrage thread.
No idea, but China has obviously released orders to its bots to see 6 months ban as a just punishment.

Naw, the Steam Library UI patch pushed them past Steam in usability.

Sometimes I really would like to know where many UI designers learned how to make a GUI. Form follows function is the first thing you learn, yet many of them seem think it needs to look "good" and the function can get fucked in a backalley in a trash dumpster.

If functions on a UI are efficient, you dont change them. You dont make it look clunky and confusing or add more mouse clicks to reach the goal, just to make it look better.

"Uhhh, but I want to add my personal touch to it" is what you hear all the time when you ask them WTF this is supposed to be...

I remember when Blizzard made fun of people who thought Diablo 3 was too bright and colorful (I still think that) by implementing Whimsyshire and rubbing it under the noses of said critics.

Now they back down from even that? Holy hell, they really are desperate.

Want me not to use your streaming service? Don't let me binge-watch.

Of course, the real reason for this move has /nothing/ to do with "people watch[ing] weekly and look[ing] forward to the next episode and talk[ing] about it". It's all about making sure customers keep paying every month. If people binge watch an entire season in a weekend, they may not show up (or pay) for the service until the new season is available. If they spread that same season out over six months, those customers have to keep paying month after month.

Look, I'll grant you that maybe I'll have a better experience if I don't watch ten episodes in a row, that spreading a series out over a month or so would be more memorable. But that should be the customers' choice, and not something pushed on them. If you try that, people will just find other ways of enjoying the media that don't have these strings attached... like your competitors or piracy.

Won't happen. People - the overwhelming majority at any rate - will simply wait until the show's season has all been released than pay for one month to binge watch.
Like the majority of people waits for all DLC to be released and then buy the game with them bundled?
lol...

Epic, I think you should just totally RUIN that guy. Like, just fucking bankrupt him AND his family, and make him destitute for the rest of his life. Get him evicted from his home, all his savings money taken away, all his possessions sold. Leave him with nothing but that one picture of the map he tweeted. That'll teach him!
