So you can be an idiotic internet outrage monkey apparently.

Of course you defend a guy who signs agreements then disappears and professionally blames Jews and calls black people porch monkeys.

He's like you if you had any authority at work.

I was insulting people not defending them - but you already knew that. And you really do not know me at all Beamer so nice bit of projecting there. You seem to think having "authority" is something important. Can't say I'm surprised...

You were insulting those outraged, as per usual, not the racist. Meanwhile, you linked to a term extremely common and, oddly, that is itself a definition. No surprises. You strike me as the type that needs very basic and obvious terms defined for you. Like "racist." We've all seen you struggle with that one.

If you don't want to buy it on EGS, buy it here. I've had people tell me Steam isn't a monopoly, despite so many games using it exclusively, because you can buy it elsewhere (then install it on Steam.)

BL3 is on the Humble Store. Problem solved.

Ghosting? Like simply not replying to someone? Gesus, people have gone full on pussy these days.

That, or some "people these days" either can't read or can't think.

The example in the article is a company signing a deal with Nicalis, for Nicalis to do their port. They sign an NDA. They give Nicalis their source code. Nicalis then ghosts them and never responds to any additional communication.

At the very least, this is extremely unprofessional. At worst, they're stealing source code. In the middle, they're risking significant shipping delays by agreeing to do something then not doing it, likely costing several weeks of the team that made the deal wondering what the fuck is going on before they seek new partners.

If you think someone is a "pussy" for having a company they signed a deal with and sent their source code to going entirely silent, well, I really don't think there's anything anyone needs to say to you.

Ypur right, in almost every discorse these days there is a cadre of absoulte fuckwits that want to defend the otherwise indefensible and there is no rational, fact or idea that will make them think twice about their stated position. Fine if you are training to be a lawyer but otherwise I don't even know how you look at yourself in the mirror each day.

Like in the follow up topic here, where one of our resident alt-right shut-ins calls those who find this guy's behavior to be bad "outrage monkeys."

Because those who wouldn't work with this guy are the bad ones here...

"but no one gets mad when a game is exclusive to steam!"

Yeah, because Steam doesn't make a publisher go exclusive to them. Any publisher can take their game to GOG, or Windows Store, or itch.io, or whatever. Steam doesn't dangle money in front of a dev and tell them "If you take this you can't go anywhere else"

In your defense of Epic Game Store, I'd like you folks to be a little less facetious.

How are they making publishers do anything? Epic isn't the mafia, where saying "no" means they'll shoot your dog.

Besides, it's not like Valve doesn't have a history of buying up studios/projects at the 11th hour to make them Steam exclusive.

They told the one guy "we don't have the resources to accommodate your product, unless you're exclusive."

Some here take that as a threat, but it isn't. It's the reality that getting a game live on EGS is a very time-consuming, manual process, and they can't focus on games that people won't buy. They focus on ones people will. So AAA games get those man-hours, and exclusives get those man-hours. An indie that isn't exclusive will probably sell a thousand copies, so it isn't smart for them to put that effort in. Once they automate the process, it'll change.

The letter from Epic largely explaining this was very polite and apologetic about the situation, and people still see it as a threat, like some mafioso going "nice game you have here, it'd be a shame if someone deleted the source code!"

It's barely out, it's just people angry over dumb shit and reviewing that, not the game.

Which is why user reviews are utterly, totally pointless and unhelpful.

The first hit's free
Fun fact, Valve implemented lootboxes in TF2 almost 1 1/2 year before EA introduced their version to the FIFA franchise.

Yet Valve sees almost no derision for doing that, while everyone else using lootboxes get piles of (deserved) hate piled on them.

Because *hats* are nothing like the straight-up casino gambling found in FIFA titles. It's not even remotely close to the same.

I'd argue that what CS:Go had, though, was ridiculous. I haven't really played many games with loot boxes, probably just CS:Go and Borderlands 2 (if that even counts), but what CS:Go had was infuriating. Win a box, but have to buy a key? A marketplace around selling what you get, with you virtually guaranteed to turn a dollar into 17 cents?

A huge turnoff in that game.

I've never used any gig economy service. I might start if these changes come to my state.

Uber is a life changer in cities where taxis aren't common and there's no great mass transportation. It makes going out to bars so much more simple and easy - no worrying about parking, no worrying about how much you're drinking, etc. Absolute life changer. Now that I'm in NYC I really only use them to get to and from airports, but in smaller cities, they drastically opened up my night life.

I'm wondering what innovations people were hoping for that would improve it over BL2. Other than setting, do series like BF and GTA really innovate version to version?

I have a really in-depth gun part system in my head that I want to see implemented in a game.

I know many here thoroughly hate the gun system in BL2. I did not. But I think there could be huge innovation here.

I know some here hate Polygon, but their review seems to say what most here expected: more of the same, pretty damn good if that's what you want, but feels incredibly safe with no real new ideas and, in that regard, feels very corporate - the work of a think tank trying to please everyone rather than making something fun, new, and vibrant.

As for denim, I made it though the 80s and early 90s once. That was never my choice and it was more than enough denim for life. I wouldn't go near the stuff.
I think I must have never gotten over the fact my parents forced me to wear slacks and dress shirts to school through my freshmen year of high school. Since then, outside my time in the military and the occasional wedding or funeral, it has been denim/jeans all the time. Even wore denim shorts when I used to wear shorts, which I rarely do now. I don't really feel comfortable with anything but denim on my legs these days.

My company went full casual five days a week last year. It's been nothing but soft worn denim jeans since then.

Yeah, I keep saying I'll never work somewhere that doesn't let me wear jeans every day again.

Then again, interviewed somewhere the other week where one guy was wearing a long, flowing denim dress. Or skirt. Not sure which, frankly.

So a guy who accused his former boss of being a pedophile without having any proof and seemingly knowing that the porn was "barely legal" and not "not legal" is now with the NRA. Sounds about right.

Also, who the fuck has porn on something related to work. WTF, Pitchford?

Pretty much the only pants I wear are Japanese raw denim. Great jeans, but often very thick and very coarse. Something about my build means I tear through the crotches very quickly, too. These jeans take like 12-18 months to really start looking great, but I put holes in the crotch within 8-12, so right when they start looking unique. Since they cost a lot, and take a lot of time investment, I have them sent away to be repaired.

The darning, though, looks weird in full body scanners. It's a squareish area that's a different material, texture, and consistency.

Anyway, long story short, at least 25% of the time I fly in them I get called out, pulled to the side, and a very serious rubdown. Not on the belt line, the actual crotch, right down in there. I always feel pretty badly about it. Thankfully, most travel is for work and day trips, so I'm often in trousers not jeans, but when I travel personally or on a longer trip...

Our current regime has spent an entire fucking week solely trying to convince us that an accidental slip of the tongue was intentional and we're all wrong to believe what literally every weather agency is telling us, and that the President is omniscient and is never, ever wrong and makes no mistakes, to the point that they're altering maps and forcing government agencies to release statements not attributed to anyone that actually works there.

But it's a missing blooper in Toy Story 2 that we have to fear. Something in a movie made for children possibly not appropriate for children...

You tell me.

I mean, depictions of Jesus aren't forbidden, in fact, most churches are full of them.

And these products typically come from places where Christians are the majority and not persecuted against, generally the developers were raised in homes at least slightly Christian, which is very different than these same devs, in these same places, making something about Muslims.

You know exactly what I am referring to. If you don't get educated.

Yes, I do, and I addressed it. Depictions of Muhammad are forbidden. Depictions of Jesus are encouraged. That you can't see how that's incredibly different is, well, typical, but still shocking.

Not to mention, again, the difference between people mocking themselves, which means Christians in Christian countries mocking Christianity, vs. what would happen had this been Muhammad - Christians in Christian countries mocking Muslims.

Again, it's typical, but I'm shocked you don't see how that's different.
