Not sure what Gearbox was expecting. You can't deliver an ultimatum demanding far-reaching systemic changes and expect G2A to comply within a day.

This was simply a PR stunt to help boost Gearbox's public image.

Gearbox gave them at least 30 days. G2A must have rejected the demands outright.

I'm pretty sure Gearbox gave them like eight hours? They made their ultimatums on the day before the reclip edition went live and said "This all has to be committed to before the game comes out!"

Even with the most goodwill in the world, no company is going to make major changes like that in the space of a single business day. That's just not how business works.

In the end, I'm pretty sure this was Gearbox's plan all along, as some weird way to generate buzz for themselves. Randy Pitchford is a giant fucking moron, but there's no way he genuinely didn't know what a shithole G2A is.

It's a bullshit site. Not like buying cheap game keys is a mortal sin or something but its amusing to see people try to justify it.

Even more amusing is to see an actual developer/publisher team up with G2A. It's more of the Gamestop rhetoric.

"GAMESTOP IS KILLING THE GAMING INDUSTRY!!!1!!! Oh, hi Gamestop. What, you want exclusive DLC? Of course, let's make some cool stuff for you!"

G2A is actively enabling stealing, unlike Gamestop which is just reselling games which is perfectly legal, and here's Randy's gang "HAI GUYZ WERE TEAMING UP WITH G2A HUR HUR DERP!"

And why does the original creator of Cyberpunk not own the Cyberpunk trademark?

He might, but he didn't make a video game. These things are usually industry specific since you wouldn't reasonably expect confusion between Andrew's Windows and Doors, and Microsoft's product. And if you're not planning to make a franchise out of it then you might not care.

That's a fair point, didn't think about that.

All of this sounds a lot like a "trust us, we're not going to abuse it! We're just doing it to protect ourselves! We'll let you still use the word in a game, we just need to do this to stop people from abusing it."

when in reality games with cyberpunk have been made for quite a long time now, and none of them have ever felt the need to 'protect' themselves.

So I dunno. I wanna trust these guys, they're one of the last few good guys left in the game industry, but anytime someone trademarks something like this, it makes me go "what skeezy shit are you up to?"

And why does the original creator of Cyberpunk not own the Cyberpunk trademark?

Big change in multiplayer, disarming devices now takes 5 seconds rather than 10 seconds. This is huge, because before, if you got a devices objective on wave 6 against the Kett, you were just plain screwed. An Ascendant would just park his floating ass on a device, and bye bye match.

With a 5 second disable, you can sneak in and out and maybe get it done before he ganks you.

What a bunch of bullshit. Gearbox "didn't know" how fucking crooked G2A was. Okay, Randy. Rolleyes

And now that everyone is saying FUCK YOU GEARBOX, now all of a sudden you're going to get tough? Take your fake-ass outrage out of here. If you really gave a shit, you wouldn't have joined up with them to begin with.

Anyone come up with a build that can take out on Architect on Insanity without using cover? I try to avoid using cover as much as possible usually but on Insanity it's pretty difficult. My character is an Adept glass cannon right now for example and my shields last maybe 2 or 3 shots from a fodder enemy. The only reason I live is amazing offense and crowd control.

I could make a cheesy i-frame build I guess and just avoid attacks that way.

I would imagine technically any build can take out the Architect without cover, but I'm not sure you'd want to run that 20 minutes worth of risk of making a single mistake and dying?

In any case, Cloak + Sniper is just about the only way I've found that really does much of anything against an Architect.

Though not announced, I'm not sure this comes as a surprise to anyone. TOR, Dragon Age and Mass Effect is literally all EA has Bioware do anymore. They might as well drop the pretense and call it Dragon Age 2K18.

It should say something that in my 100+ hours in the game I honestly don't even remember the character in question...

It's a super minor character. She shows up on Eos, and the only reason anyone even interacts with her, is because she gives you the quest to go investigate the tremors that lead to (spoiler) the Remnant Architect boss fight.

The only reason I even remember who she was was because the game kept telling me to "Go talk to Hainley", and whenever I did so, she had nothing to say. It wasn't until 30+ hours later that the quest finally became available.

Burrito of Peace wrote on Apr 6, 2017, 12:56:
Utopia radically overhauls a lot of the systems in game to good effect. I started a new playthrough with a newly created race and the differences in just race creation are obvious. Totally having a blast so far, just picked up my second Ascencion perk and I've already maxed out one of the Traditions but I have been playing since ~0700 (or whenever it became available) and am smack dab in mid game.

Sounds awesome. The one thing that always made me a bit hesitant about this game is that it seemed you could fairly easily grind to a halt in the mid game, without being able to make decently quick advances against the AI. Is that still the case, do you think?

I'm very much tempted to purchase this now.

...the transsexual character starts every conversation with "I was born a different sex"...

I had been wanting to ask how badly it was done, is that actually how bad it is?

Yes, it is literally that bad. It comes out of absolutely nowhere, and it's clearly just Bioware going "We have a transgendered character! LOOKITHOWPROGRESSIVEWEARE!"

It's pathetic pandering, and done so in a pisspoor manner.

I mean, the character in DA:I did it too suddenly too (the Inquisitor comes out of nowhere and asks "So when did you decide this wasn't who you are", or something like that and it just baffled me, because there had been NO hints that the character was transgendered at all. So this was apparently some psychic bullshit knowledge that came to my character...), but at least it was done after you've already talked with him like five or six times. (even though no hint of it had ever been brought up.)

The Andromeda character, it's the first time you talk about it, and it comes out of nowhere. I fail to see why anyone would be "hurt" over it, but it's just pandering. It serves absolutely no purpose other than some EA manager ticking some frikking box.

We apologize to anyone who interacted with or was hurt by this conversation

Sigh

In any case, maybe now they'll finally stop trying so damn hard with their "Look! We have every possible flavor of character!"

It's literally some EA manager toolbag sitting there, ticking boxes. "Do we have gays? Lesbians? Transgendered? Good. Ship it."

millennials -- generally defined as people under the age of 35 -- "love the programming on television but they don't love the experience on television," Kelly Merryman, YouTube's vice president of content partnerships, said in an interview. "How we can reimagine the television experience for the new generation?

"By pretending they'll endure that exact same experience, but on a FIVE INCH SCREEN instead! By the way, you guys won't believe how much money I make to come up with shit like this!"

Why on earth would you pay money to livestream Thursday Night Football???? For those twelve Detroit Lions / Jacksonville Jaguars / Cleveland Browns fans who don't have TV?

Maybe the bids were $20 versus $100? lol


They bid FIFTY MILLION dollars... If they up the price of Prime because of it, I'm going to lose my shit.
