You don't say? How's that 70% of all cars being "clean diesel" working out for ya there, Paris?

That's the fault of crooks like VW, not Paris.

Well, yes and no. Obviously VW are a bunch of fucking scumbags whose leadership deserves to see major jailtime (but never will. Fuck you, Ferdinand Piech, you piece of shit) and their actions have definitely contributed, but it was this fucking inane shift in Europe to get off petrol/gasoline and onto Diesel because it was "cleaner" that's to blame. The large majority of cars in Europe are diesel, and France was one of the highest diesel users in Europe.

Anyone who has ever stood beside a fucking diesel powered car knows that diesel is NOT cleaner. Sure, it may have fewer CO2 emissions, which helps with the greenhouse effects, but the nox emissions are through the roof, and that's (partially) why all these major cities in Europe (and elsewhere) are now suffering from all this god-awful smog.

Rest easy, John Glenn.


Can you imagine what it must have been like, to see the space race unfold?

Makes me want to go watch The Right Stuff...


Yeah, both he and Gagarin were just some of the most unbelievable pioneers of the human race. It's sad that all our space heroes are dying.

I know everyone hates it

I didn't hate it. It probably still has the most beautiful world of any AC, and the best feel of any AC after AC2. It's just that there was so much extraneous crap in this game that it got overwhelming. And throughout all the story missions, the one thing you rarely do is actually assassinate someone. I think there are maybe 2 or 3 pure assassination missions, and that's it. The rest is all "watch the founding fathers sign the declaration of independence." and "watch Paul Revere's ride." and "watch literally every other cool thing from history."

It feels as if it should be called Spectator's Creed at times.

That said, the story is still pretty dang good, the world is gorgeous, the ship battles are awesome (though not as good as in Black Flag), the hunting is cool, it's a ton of fun to explore, and it just looks and feels so pretty and immersive.

All in all, people would be nuts not to snap this up for free.

Never update your drivers until some game actively starts having issues. Updating every time Nvidia randomly throws out some cobbled-together code releases a new driver is begging to get hit with major issues.

I can't even play the original because of Games for Windows Live. It just won't work. I'm not the only one having that issue with the game.

Didn't they update it for Steamworks? Maybe this wasn't one of the ones that got updated.

I think you guys are kind of being extremely cynical of the "why" here.

No, not really. The "why" is simply "money."

And here's the thing. I don't expect publishers/devs to give their remastered versions away for free. It's awesome that 2K did that with Bioshock, and bethesda did it with Skyrim, but I don't expect it.

But if you have a 5 hour game that sold horrendously poorly the first time it came out, and was fun, sure, but really not that great a game to begin with, don't come to me with your bullshit "Well, we need to charge 60 dollars because yadda yadda yadda AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT THEN DON'T BUY IT!"

Yeah, Randy, we understand that. That's already what everyone does. We don't need your arrogant ass to spell that out for people. And this is the kind of attitude that does not help you sell games.

If this was $20 and they'd give a 50% discount for people who already own it, I'd probably bite.

Selling a remaster for full price just reeks of lazy, desperate cash grabbing. That the guys who are left NEED a desperate cash grab in order to exist is not my problem. Having Randy Pitchford do his best "I'm a giant fucking dick" impression is not in the best interest of your game, and I'm beginning to wonder if these guys are regretting their decision to sign up with him. He's quickly moving to the forefront of most disliked people in the games industry, especially now that cliffyb shuts up most of the time.

1. Is AI more evil than nukes Dec 6, 2016, 10:38 Creston
 
No. AI is not evil, nor good. It is amoral.

This quote (I can't remember where I first saw it) really sums it up very well. "The AI does not hate you or love you. But you are made up of atoms that it can use."

The reason to have empathy is this; if they're willing to treat their rich golden goose like that, how do you think they treat their middle class and lower employees? Would a company like this blink twice at fucking you over if you worked there?

This. Kojima made them God knows how many millions of dollars. So the average wage slave at that place probably literally gets shit on by their fucking directors and have to say "Thank you, may I please have more?"

Fuck that place. I hope those assholes in charge of Konami fall in a fucking sinkhole.
