"We work really hard to make sure that customers understand what they are buying when they get an Early Access title on Steam,"

*snort*

"We spent two minutes one day working on this blurb which is roughly the entire extent of what we do to make sure you understand you are likely buying something that will never get finished once the dev's income stream dries up."

There, now it's more honest. That's basically all Valve does about it.

That said, I do agree that if someone buys into Early Access, they deserve all the misery that goes with it. Are you excited about getting to play a buggy piece of shit that will likely never be finished? More power to you. Just don't complain when almost inevitably, it doesn't get finished.

“Trusting authoritarian regimes to ensure the continued freedom of the internet is lunacy,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in a statement. “The president does not have the authority to simply give away America’s pioneering role in ensuring that the internet remains a place where free expression can flourish.”

"Only the authoritarian regime of the NSA or FBI can do that, goddammit!!"


I mean, don't get me wrong, I think assigning governance of the internet over to ICANN is a mistake, but their reasons for objecting to it are fucking hilarious.

This looks really interesting. I think it's more challenging to play games like this and the DX series as non-lethal combatants. And the graphics look really nice as well. Might have to pick this one up when it comes out.

My biggest issue with non-lethal in the first dishonored is that it was boring. You had all these awesome powers, and you could use like 2 or 3 of them non-lethally. Whereas if you went full death, you had like 8 powers, some of which worked together just in an incredibly fun way.

I think I read somewhere that they said that they've made sure to balance the powers well between lethal and non-lethal this time, so let's hope so.

Edit: after watching the video, it does seem like you have more options. I really liked that Void Apparition you can summon.

In any case, it looks just awesome. I am VERY excited for it.

they are not going to admit anything to not hurt their abysmal sales they still have atm.

Yup. They either go F2P or their game just dies. Nobody is playing it, nobody is buying it.

:-yawn-:

How else do you do it? The game only came out a few weeks ago. Before that it was impossible to do the compare. So, account for a couple weeks for dissatisfaction to build and make a complaint, a couple of weeks to investigate the validity, and a couple of weeks to formulate and execute a plan of action, and we're at the current date. How could it have been any faster?

It probably couldn't have been faster, but look at what these guys can actually "do."

The ASA has the power to have advertisements it believes are in breach of its code of conduct withdrawn, and prevent them from appearing again

Ooooh, they can make you take the ad down!!! That'll REALLY hurt two months after the game's been released. Where's the 5 million GBP fine?

Their "power" is like the Invisible Boy who can only turn invisible if nobody's watching.

It's okay, Yahoo was just behind on their protection payments. It's all squared away now. The Senators all have new beach houses and nobody ever mentions the hack again.

All this does is have mod makers delete all negative comments about mods, justified or not.

That'd be cool. I played a little of the first at a buddy's home, and the combat seemed pretty fun. They really need to work on their story and presentation though.

Been playing it on the Bone since Friday, and it's a ton of fun. Runs butter smooth on the bone too, no weird hitching.

I'll give the PC version a try once they've got the bugs worked out.

"There's this thing called money, see? And we want more of it. So we charge absurd fees and overages to our customers, so they give us more money. What? Oh no, there's absolutely no technical reason for it, it's just pure unadulterated greed. How do we sleep at night? On beds of pure fucking money."

Yes.

So is everyone else's. But hey, no competition, and little oversight, so they can claim whatever they want!
