News Comments > Bethesda Blocked Game Sale Because of "New" Designation
27. Re: Evening Legal Briefs Aug 12, 2018, 19:43 Overon
 
Bethesda is trying to redefine first sale doctrine to carve themselves a self serving exception. The seller is saying it's new, if it's not been opened then it is "new." "New" does not mean "authorized by Bethesda." How does Bethesda know it's been opened? They don't. If it's the seller misrepresenting the product as "new" and it has been opened then it's the seller's responsibility not Bethesda's.

Bethesda does not have the purchasers interest at heart. They have their own and to try to pretend otherwise is insulting. I wish someone who had the money would take a case like this to court, and set a precedent but Bethesda would not go that far because they are afraid of the courts ruling against them.

Talk about disingenuous. You pay money to have a competitive advantage over other players. That's pay to win. Any mechanic that allows that is pay to win.

You are telling me that a piece of shit consoles from 5 years ago have the hardware to run the game at a decent framearate but a GTX 1080 does not? Come on, it's an un-optimized piece of shit.

Steam lets even malware onto their platform. Pretty sad really. Hard to trust them.

I don't get it, why does the lack of DRM slow down the multiplayer development?

Phil Spencer is a bullshitter. How many times has he said this? Why doesn't someone in the bullshit games media call him out on this?

16. Re: Steam Game Removals Jun 8, 2018, 17:35 Overon
 
So much for not choosing which games are acceptable and which one are not. The lesson here is if you scream about something loud enough than than Valve can use their nebulous definition of "trolling" to remove that something from Steam. Don't think for a second this is a consistent principled stance. It's ad hoc.

News Comments > Steam Opening the Gates
11. Re: Steam Opening the Gates Jun 6, 2018, 18:08 Overon
 
Valve barely did any curation before, and now it's just going to be worse. Straight up "games" that don't run and asset flips and shovelware of all kinds. It's the wild west completely now. They have learned that they don't want to do even the modicum of curation they were doing before. So let everyone onto the platform and everything and that's the best way to maximize income with the least amount of work. I expect to see straight up malware released on Steam.

There are no standards anymore, no quality control. With hundreds of shovelware games getting released on Steam it's going to be even harder to find those diamond games without marketing budgets.

This is all to give us "player choice." When someone goes to medical school, they don't want to be taught pseudoscience like homeopathy or reiki or naturopathy. They expect to be taught things that have good arguments and evidence to back them up. They don't want "student choice" to learn pseudo medicine. Medical schools have to exercise some quality control over the subjects that they teach.

In what specific ways are they denying science?

People who believe in macroevolution (by faith) are not science deniers? Please show me where mutations and natural selection created life by the scientific method (observation, etc...). See, you cannot-- your faith in nothing is strong!
I'm probably going to regret it but I have to jump in here. Biological evolution describes and explains what happens once self reproducing life begins, it does NOT try to explain how life began. The topic of how life began is the field of abiogenesis not biological evolution. Asking biological evolution to explain and describe the origins of life is a common mistake that you and so many others keep making.
I'm not not going to touch your "micro vs macro evolution" false dichotomy.

I know this is off topic but I couldn't resist.

I'm having a hard time believing what is being said. Worst case this is a pledge and grab. As if people need another reason not to crowdfund stuff. You take all of the risk when you do.

How long is this "hiatus" going to be?

Fuck loot crates. Fuck PUBG. Games are becoming vectors for pseudo gambling and software as a service and their makers are taking advantage of behavioral economics based psychological manipulation of their audience.
