According to IGN, Nordic has confirmed that it includes all DLC and that it will be a free upgrade for existing (Steam) owners.

That's really cool. Thanks Nordic!!

It's a really fun game, but if all they're doing is adding some shadows, specular maps and lighting, I wouldn't give more than five bucks for it.

So it's episodic now too? Fuck me.

I guess at least my 35 bucks got me near-weekly email updates that showed what a fucking trainwreck clusterfuck this has been.

I fixed that for you, Zuckerberg.

I also like how the supposed "opt-out" feature of this data scrounging is called "not now". Ie, it just bugs you again the next time you log in.

Eh, on the flipside, if you use Facebook, this is what you sign up for.

What does this new Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition include?

Content

The original Neverwinter Nights campaign
Two expansion packs: Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark
Three premium modules: Kingmaker, ShadowGuard, and Witch’s Wake

Hordes of the Underdark was sooooooooooooooo freaking awesome. That alone is worth the price of admission right there.

About the only thing I really liked about NWN (besides Underdark) was how powerful you could get as a monk.

I haven't played any far cry games since 2 with their horrible respawning bases at every road junction.

Probably won't play this one but I'll watch some reviews to see if it catches my interest.

3 and 4 don't really have that problem. If you clear an outpost, it stays cleared (and actually switches sides.)

There is an option to have an outposts reconquered by the bad guys, but that's manually initiated (through the menu) by you.

3 and 4 were quite fun. I'm not so sure about this one. It'd be one thing if they just went the funny route with this, but the few videos I've seen, they're taking this waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too seriously.

Also, I made a stupid video of pushing heroes off ledges on the new Bespin map that sucks and no one cares about. WANNA SEE?

https://youtu.be/2xNh4hPfopQ

Hahaha, that looked pretty damn awesome. Force push + ledges is such a simple design, I wonder why it took someone so fucking long to finally remember just how glorious it was in all the Jedi Knight games.


As for an Open World SW game, eh, it could be cool, but of course multiplayer has to be shoveled into it somewhere, because how else are you going to get people to PAY MORE MONIES???!!

:\

Just imagine Witcher 3 in the Star Wars universe, where you play a Jedi or a Sith instead of Geralt. We'll never get that, though.

Well, I am asking because I honestly wonder... there is no contract in place until you are in the car the driver accepted you as passenger with, before that, you can be denied access to the car for ANY reason and not saying beforehand that you NEED to transport a dog would be such a reason no?

No, that's not how it works. There does not need to be a 'contract' between two parties in order for something like the ADA to take precedence. Otherwise everyone could just refuse service to everyone and there'd never be any problem whatsoever. There'd be no discrimination laws either. "I just refused to service him because it was a full moon, not because he was black/gay/had a dog! And we never had agreed to service either!" etc.

Or is Uber handled like a bus (aka public transport) company in the US? Or does there no exist such a split?

If you provide a service to the public at large, you are not allowed to discriminate/refuse service based off of a fairly large number of criteria. People being disabled is one of those protected criteria. (While being drunk isn't, for example.)

While I understand that as a driver you'd not be happy with you car being covered in dog hair, that comes with being a driver. Don't want to deal with it? Don't be an Uber driver.

The only thing we can say here is that Uber seems to explicitly mention in their terms of service for their drivers that they are NOT allowed to refuse passage to anyone based on protected criteria, so she may not have much ammo against Uber. Against each driver individually, though? Sue away. She'll way 100% of these cases, and rightly so.

Youtube to frustrate and seduce you into never watching Youtube again, making them irrelevant in five years.

Seems like a solid business plan.

That's a blatant violation of the ADA. Burn, Uber.

Does ADA actually apply here?

Why wouldn't it? She's a person with a disability and has a service dog. Uber drivers are flat-out refusing to give her service because of said service dog. This is 100% a violation of the ADA.
