Without having read the article, I'm going to say that indie devs should probably also consider that without Steam, 99.999999% of them would never have been able to release their games.

Websites are yelling at viewers/customers about adblockers, when they need to be yelling at the advertisers. Make the ads uniform, unobtrusive, 100% safe and I'll turn the adblocker off. Until then, you can post up the "turn off your adblocker if you want to view this site" all you want, I'll just not visit your site (used to go to Wired all the time, never visit now, as one example).

Yep, agree fully. Bitching at your customers is never the answer, but that's a truth that apparently hasn't sunk in yet with a large number of website owners. I'm not going to open up my computer to shitloads of potential attack vectors just because you're too lazy to figure out a better business model.

I'd love to play a good SP campaign in this, and not just online skirmish.

Can you think of anything that would kill Facebook faster than every single idiot posting, every, single, mundane, piece of crap they do, all day, every day, and everyone else getting spammed with alerts for all said crap. It would be like a feedback loop of complete crap, presuming it isn't already.

You just described Twitter. To a tee. So no, sadly, it would not die out. It would just become an even bigger and sadder narcissist circle jerk than Twitter already is.

That video of a bear chasing a snowboarder... I hope this is staged. If not - girl, this is your second birthday from now on. Stunned Wow

Fake bear is fake.

I dunno, dude. I'm usually the first to cry fake, but this seems pretty legit. With the snow swirling around and the bear running through it, it'd be a LOT of work to splice that in there.

It is taking them just stupidly long to release the CK this time around. Might it have something to do with them trying hard to pawn quite underwhelming DLC? (so far, I hope Far Harbor will be awesome) Nah.

Except they do no such thing. So, thanks for playing, timesofindia.indiatimes.com. Perhaps put the words time and India a few more times into your URL, so we actually know who we are dealing with.

Much props to them for going back and trying to fix a (by now) pretty old game.

Thanks Hi-Rez.

I REALLY want this to be good, but Total Assembly has make a fucking cock of like three out of their last four games, so I'm fairly resigned to this again having completely broken AI and half the features promised not being in the game.

I do so want this to be good though. And then I want a TW:40K ...

I can only assume that Witcher 3 was not included because CDPR isn't a member of BAFTA?

Makes as much sense as anything. FO4? Come on.

Considering the glacial pace of the story, I wouldn't expect it to wrap up in Season 2 either. This is going to be the next A Song of Ice and Fire, duration wise.

Right, sounds like there are similarities to this situation, with both characters being clumsily introduced and integrated.

I don't remember a huge dustup about it for DA:I, though. Perhaps because the devs just put the character out there without comment?

Eh, there was some grumbling about it on their forum and the occasional story about it here and there, but like I said, most of the negative stuff I read about it was all about how poorly done it was as opposed to the fact that they'd put it in at all. At least that's how I saw most of it. There were the occasional people who bitched at it even being there, but that didn't seem to bother most people. It's just that it was there for the sake of being there.

It didn't add anything to the character, it didn't add anything to the story, it was never alluded to (and NEVER mentioned again), and the fact that the Qunari were accepting of it (which is the race in DA which would NEVER accept it), and it just spoke volumes about Bioware just desperately trying to shoehorn it in just for the sake of being able to tick the "Hey, we have a transgender character! Look how inclusive we are!" box.

It was just pathetic. And because it was so pathetic, I don't think it really raised much stink.

I thought DA:I came out right in the middle of GG?

The transgender character in DA:I was just so stupidly introduced though. You're talking to Krem, and suddenly, literally out of nowhere, come 3 options that basically say "Have you always known you were a man?" and "when did you know?". Something to that effect. It came out of nowhere. Krem had never once even alluded to it, and suddenly your inquisitor bam knows about it.

And then you ask Iron Bull if it's not considered weird in Qunari society, and bull basically goes "No, we have plenty of them. It's perfectly normal."

It's perfectly normal to be born a man and instead feel you are a woman. In Qunari society. Where if you are born a merchant, you stay a merchant YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, because that's clearly what the Qun demands of you. But it's perfectly fine to switch GENDER.

I think a lot of the negative feedback came from the fact that it was just so, so, SO badly written. None of it made sense, and it just felt like an absolutely pathetic attempt by Bioware to shove a transgender character in so they could show how hip and with the times they were.

Other than that, Krem was an awesome character (and was voiced by Jennifer Hale!!!)

Vive seems like the better hardware, but the Rift sure has it beat for launch titles.
