So if I calculate that correctly, that's 0.013% of his total wealth.

0.013% of my total wealth would boil down to roughly $19.50. Somehow I'm really not that impressed, Bill. I give more than twenty bucks to charity each WEEK.

Don't get me wrong, he's done great philanthropic work in the past, but this is just... Wow. Thanks Bill. You know you can't take it with you, right?

Good job, Epic. You're truly doing the Lord's work here.

That short title sounds terrible, but in this instance everybody should read up on the situation. The kid was already banned like 14 times, and he runs Youtube/Twitch channels that promote cheats for Fortnite. Assuming he's getting ad money from Youtube, he's actually making money off of promoting those cheats too.

Epic has to sue, even though he's a 14 year old, because he's also a piece of shit.

*EDIT* Typo.

I knew he had been banned 14 times before, I didn't realize he was promoting cheats. On the flipside I could say that they'd be better off if they took that money they spend on these shitty lawyers and fixed the exploits.

I'm not sure that suing a 14 year old for non-crimes is ever the answer.

Todd Howard trolls... why? I missed that part.

Who knows why trolls do anything. Offhand I'd guess because it's been 6.5 years since Skyrim and still no new Elder Scrolls game?

Good. Fuck Intel.

Maybe once they've got Ryzen 2 out the door, AMD can spend some more time on developing the next Radeon and kicking Nvidia in the nuts too.

Go AMD!

It looks good, and gets very good reviews, but according to several reviews it's just constantly a major downer mentally. Always people dying, kids dying, no hope, etc. Very gloomy.

Not sure I need that right now.

Tbh, kids should be the first to go. Nobody likes kids, let's just be straight up. XD

Hey, since it's just a 45 days campaign anyway, who needs kids? They don't do anything. They'll never grow up into workers. :p

But it'd be nice if the game didn't try to make you feel bad about it all the time. Hehe.

Yeah, I got no problems with this whatsoever. They keep adding substantial expansions to their game for pretty decent prices. Nobody is forcing you to buy them.

Only thing is that every time I'm about to start playing, they're like "hey, we're releasing this in 3 weeks" and then I wait 3 weeks again!

Yeah the trailers have looked great. However, I've played some of their games before and always got pretty bored midway through. A good buddy at work said he's playing it day 1, so I'll wait to hear what he has to say about it.

Star Trek could only happen if we develop:

1) Fusion power
2) Nanotechnology.

At that point, there would no longer be any worry over power or food or other basic needs. Nanotechnology would just make it for everyone who needs it (ie, the replicator) and the unfathomable amounts of energy it would take would be supplied by fusion power, which would essentially be free.

Until that time, everyone's going to be out of a job and the entire purchasing base of the world's economy goes away. But hey, at least your factory is running 14% cheaper with that AI in place! Fuck all those lazy ass workers!

It's no surprise Skyrim is still selling so well, with excellent mods like Project AHO still coming out.

Wow, that looks really nice. Love the music too. Thanks for linking, I'd never heard of it. Definitely putting it in my next playthrough!

Well, who in their right mind would say that MP games are dying? I've never heard anyone say that except for specific cases like the classic subs based MMOs back in the mid 2000s.

It's been a while, sure, but we've gone through that phase. We've possibly even gone through it twice if you go back twenty years.

{snipped the rest of your stuff so the post doesn't get too long}

It's not becoming niche. Sure, publishers probably focus more on MP right now because they see easy MTX and easy dollars, but this idea that they're dying or in serious trouble is just fucking horseshit. Let me just go through a small list that I googled together in about 2 minutes of games that were released or very likely will be released in 2018 alone. (I'm even skipping over entire categories like platformers, RPGs and adventure games since those by definition are usually SP. And that's like a hundred games in those 3 categories alone.)

Far Cry 5, new God of War, new Spiderman game, Last of Us 2, Hideo Kojima's new game (Forgot the name), Mech Warrior 5, Vampyr, Surviving Mars, new Underworld game, new System Shock, new Bioshock (presumably), Ni No Kuni 2, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Metro Exodus.

I could keep going for a while, but eh, I'm already getting bored. These are all major titles, not tiny indie titles.

Is there a focus on mp games right now? Sure. Every publisher jizzes all over themselves thinking about MTX and loot boxes and selling map packs, etc. MP games are outselling sp games, sure. Will MP games keep the focus for the foreseeable future? Sure.

Will SP games die or become niche? Nah. They are a huge (YUUUUGE!) market that devs are always going to cater to.

But hey, let's keep going full steam ahead with AI.

"It'll be so much fun when 90% of the world is unemployed, we're going to make so much fucking money selling those unemployed people all our AI-designed products!"

- imbecile business owners

I guess in their mind they'll be the last ones to die and that's perfectly acceptable to them.

Oh, we're back on the SP horse again. I was kinda wondering which horse I had to ride this morning, it always seems to vacillate between SP Games Are Dying or MP Games Are Dying!

It's never just a "Both genres are doing pretty damn great."


This whole fucking moronic idea that devs are just going to say "You know, even though there's like a hundred million people out there that want SP games, we're just going to ignore them. We don't like money," is so fucking stupid, it literally defies description. Oh wait, it's IGN, so I guess the description could be "It's IGN-level retarded."
