Last month had good picks too, hope this keeps up.

The only one here I'd grab is Tales from Borderlands (is it the full game or just one episode?) Unfamiliar with the rest, so if anyone can vouch, feel free.

Last month I grabbed Superhot, which had been on my wishlist for a while but never seemed priced low enough.
Frankly, I am very uncertain I'll ever play any of these, especially since they aren't via Steam.

Facebook.

It is silencing activism against the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

An example of the things Companies should not have the ability to do.
I'm just waiting for the EU's GDPR to go into effect so I can request all data be permanently deleted and have that be legally binding. It will also guarantee that Facebook provides all data it holds you, as currently it can claim it does without any legislation to compe it to do so.

Facebook went from being a useful method to keep in touch with friends and family to be a parasitic marketing tool used to manipulate people and silence political discussion by placing users in echo chambers. I've already uninstalled the client and moved to Messenger Lite to avoid the egregious advertising introduced to the main client. I honestly don't miss it at all.

I never used the client. First thing I do when getting a new phone is uninstall it. I don't use Messenger, either (it never caught on with anyone I know, though I know it's huge.) I just use a Wrapper, like Folio Pro, which pulls data from the mobile site and puts it in a more app-like experience.

Which is why, when I download my data from Facebook, it has nothing unexpected about me. No "apps" I've enabled to use my data, as anytime I click a link that asks to connect I reject. No insights. Just a very basic profile about me, the type of information I'm ok with literally anyone knowing about me, and which helps them give me ads that suck slightly less. If Facebook wants to know my age, education, where I live, gender, and that I enjoy luxury watches, I don't care. There was nothing in the data beyond that.

I pay for prime for the video streaming and the shipping.

Everything else, while I technically paid for it, is added value beyond what I originally wanted. So close enough to free.

Twitch ships shit now? Dafuq?

No, this is stuff free for Amazon Prime members who also have a free Twitch account.

Are you sure? Moody's lowered Tesla's cred to pretty low levels the other day.

Which hinders, but doesn't destroy, the debt option.
But the company is still worth $45B, and it owns 25% of itself. That's a decent amount of runway. Not runway they want, but they're at least months, not weeks, from bankruptcy.

Ford was a Negative rating for years. It's still around. It's not a growing company, so it had more income to lean on, but Tesla can still get outside financing. It isn't facing immanent bankruptcy. I'm not saying it's healthy, but for a company to go from the $250+ the stock is today to bankrupt within "weeks" takes something utterly catastrophic. AIG. Bear Stearns. Even Enron's fall from $80 to $20 took 9 months.

I believe this is the third time we've had a topic about Steam Machines being dead in as many years. Each time, the evidence gets more and more convincing.

I mean, all that could come next is Gabe actually saying it.

Okay, you do understand Forbes is a financial magazine, right? I'm not saying they shouldn't or can't over it, just wondering why they bother. It isn't what I would want or expect to see when I picked up one of their magazines or visited their website...

Forbes has game articles pretty often. I think they've been covering a much wider variety of news since they went online years ago.

'Far Cry 5' Xbox And PlayStation Console Comparisons: Ubisoft Shows How It Should Be Done

'Far Cry 5' Is Apolitical To The Point Of Absurdity

Kotaku, of all places, had two really good articles on how the UI and control were really well done for the PC.

As for the apoliticalness, I agree. It's saying nothing to the point of being pointless. You know the uncanny valley, of course, how when something is close to being real it starts being distracting. That's the political point of FC5. It feels so much like it should have a point of view or something to say, but it doesn't, so it ends up being distracting.

Compounding it is that FC3 had crazy drug runners or a cartel or whatever you fought. That made sense and was fun to kill. FC4 had a lunatic dictator and his army. That made sense and was fun to kill. Here? The majority of people you kill are victims. People brainwashed or, worse, drugged. They're far less fun to kill.

I mean, still fun, but this could have been better done. Making them separationists united under some core belief would have been better. Maybe sovereign citizens.

58. Re: Far Cry 5 Released Mar 30, 2018, 16:16 Beamer
 
So there's a stupid side mission where you have to corral some cows, with the game telling you to spook them by punching them. I've largely avoided side missions, and was pressed for time so planned to avoid this one. I just wanted to explore

But there was a silo I wanted to blow up out in the field. I rush towards it, then see two enemies by it. Pull out the old sniper rifle and BAM! one down. That noise spooks a cow to run home, so it's a twofer! I off the other enemy, then toss a stick of dynamite at the silo. BOOM! no more silo. And it spooks the other two cows, so now mission accomplished.

Except the cows are in a huge panic. They run like crazy, smashing into cars, breaking everything that can break, then repeatedly bashing a helicopter. It smokes, it moves, then it explodes, killing the cow. The fire spreads, killing another cow.

Sorry, ma'am, but they were alive when I brought them to you, thanks for the money, no refunds.

Except, the game I purchased wasn't what he promised. I can't stress how important that is.
If you go by the rules most use here, do not pre-order or buy day one. In the first few days there was plenty of release red flags. As for you didn't get what was promised? Sucker born every minute right?
I'll go farther than that, I think it was pretty clear prior to the original release it wouldn't be everything Murray said it would be. A pre-order or first day purchase of this game should have been a "I'm going to risk it." or a "I don't care if it isn't all there." for anyone who was paying attention.

If you look at the In-Progress reviews from the day before release, there are red flags. Reading the topics from the release day here, many people knew.

The only games I'll buy ahead of time, or Day 1, are ones I know for a fact I'll like. Like Far Cry 5. It's the third of a game I really liked, with only a few changes. Given that I wanted more of the same, it was a very, very safe purchase. Even if it sucked, I'd want to play it right now.

But that's a sequel to a sequel of a game I loved, from a studio who has been reliably making that game over and over. I didn't get Primal because it wasn't enough the same.

It wouldn't surprise me if Trump doesn't like Amazon simply because he doesn't know how to order from them. But his knowing Bezos owns the Washington Post is probably a better guess.

If any of Trump's bankruptcies did not contain "irregularities", I would be shocked. But it is unlikely we will ever find out.

Also, Amazon has hurt malls, and malls are real estate, and what job function do most of Trump's friends hold? What investments?

Bezos is really good at working the system. Amazon doesn't pay taxes, has his employees take food stamps and other benefits, gets sweetheart deals wherever he puts his distribution warehouses or headquarters.

He's more Dr. Evil than Santa Claus

Links? I've heard Amazon is a terrible place to work, but I haven't heard anything about their employees being on public assistance unlike say Walmart. And sweetheart deals and tax avoidance is a problem across the tech industry, not just Amazon.

It's based on Ohio. Per PolicyMatters Ohio, "1,1430 people who qualify for food stamps were either Amazon employees or had a family member who was an Amazon employee."

This leaves out a lot, right? For one thing, Amazon FCs are greatly impacted by seasonality, meaning that a huge chunk of Amazon employees in Ohio only work for Amazon 1-3 months a year. It also leaves out that some people qualify for food stamps despite making a good living.

Amazon's starting salary in the FCs is $14.50, plus bonus, plus stock in many or most cases. But a lot of people are part time.

The bigger issue is the policy of forcing employees to go through mandatory security screenings on their own time. That may have changed, but employees were doing it after clocking out. That's company mandated, so it should be paid for.

White collar Amazon employees get fewer perks, but more stock activity, than Facebook, Amazon or Google, but are treated pretty well.

Buddy, the authorities have armored personnel carriers in damn near every county in the continental US, they have automatic weapons, they have body armor. They have bombers and tanks. When you get down to it, they have predator drones. Lots of them.

Unless you own a javelin missile launcher, nothing you can buy can save you from your fever-dream nightmare.

You don't have to take on anything, you don't have to go out to fight anyone, you just have to repel or escape from the group of goons that come for you or your resources - which will not be the entire complement of the entire police force at the same place and time.

In any case, I fail to see how being completely helpless is preferable.

In the same way that on a boat I would rather have a life jacket than not have one. Odds are I'll never need it, and having one doesn't mean I'll be ok. But I know sure as anything that _if_ I needed it, I'd be super stoked to have it.

A lifevest? More like a small piece of foam.

I like that you talk about this being reality in a prior post, but here talk about the police coming to take a piece of your resources, something that does not happen, and that you'd repel them with a gun.

If the cops come for something of yours unjustly, and you fight them off with a gun, do you know what will happen? Far, far worse things.

You sound like Cliven Bundy.

I'm surprised at Trump's attitude is what it is, and it's one of the few issues where I disagree. I think he's working with older information that predates the current sales-tax situation--I pay sales tax on everything I order from Amazon now. Besides, sales tax is the *least* of the reasons Amazon is a success--its success comes from an excellent Internet presentation coupled with a first-rate order-delivery system (lots of major companies besides Amazon use UPS and Fed-Ex and the Post Office for their businesses); and the fact it doesn't have to pay for brick and mortar retail stores, either. But then, anybody in business who wants to avail himself of the Internet as Amazon has done is free to do so.

I'm a Prime member for the $100-a-year 2-day delivery (and often one day, these days, for no extra cost) option--and every year I save more than that on shipping charges. There is no minimum charge as a Prime member--if it costs fifty cents you can get it in two days or less, no charge for the shipping...;) Prime isn't perfect--sometimes the thing you really want isn't on Prime, and sometimes even the Prime marked merchandise takes > 2 days to get to you (by no more than a day, usually, when that happens.) But overall it works very well. I don't understand Trump's objection to Amazon using the Post Office (Prime stuff usually comes 2-day UPS and occasionally Fed Ex--never post office, though--that is for people who are not Prime members and still want free shipping on minimum $35 orders, etc. No time guarantee on that deal, either. Why would Trump think that UPS and Fed-Ex would not want Amazon's business?) So Amazon pays what the U.S. Post Office asks and Trump finds a problem with that? He'd rather the US Postal service not get that additional income from Amazon? Trump is obviously working with older information about this.

The only thing I find weird is that Bezos is obviously a very conservative businessman, so why the political-liberal pretension? Is it faux guilt ((D)s like the fantasy that if you're successful then you had nothing to do with it...;))? But the WaPo has been only marginally better suited for my toilet paper roll than the NYT in the last couple of years...;) I can definitely agree with Trump about that...;)

Bezos is a conservative businessman?
To the surprise of no one, I don't think you know what the word means.

I loved the original Red Faction. It had great world destruction and had other pretty original mechanics. Multiplayer was also ahead of its time. Guerilla only has building destruction, which to me makes for a much less dynamic game and reduces the feeling of really having an impact on the world. Also, Guerilla's setting is bland looking, repetitive and mostly empty. The gameplay is in the same boat. You do the exact same cookie cutter objectives for what seems like way too many times. I also don't like the switch to third person and the overall "consolisation" of the title. I really can't understand why people can stand this game, but I'm definitely in the minority. I guess it had nice graphics at the time, but the constant generic-boring-empty-desert look isn't going to win any awards regardless of what this graphical upgrade can do.

Did we play the same Red Faction? Sure it had the "geomod" ability to blow holes in terrain, but single player at least it almost never did that, and multiplayer was okay but nothing special.

Guerilla was tons of fun. I just wish the AI and the hit & run mechanics were a little more developed and a little less Grand Theft Auto.

Zero Punctuation's review of it is actually spot on.

I agree. It was a cool idea, but it would have broken any level design, so it was used sparingly.

Guerilla was mostly just breaking stuff designed to be broken. Great, I can hammer apart an entire building, but why? It's fun at first, but the rest of the game left me seriously wanting. I probably only put 2 hours into it, because what I was doing other than hammering wasn't striking me as much fun (no pun intended.)

In FC5, I'm driving trucks into small trees and breaking them apart, somewhat surprised I can do that. Kind of sad, when you think about it - of course I should be able to, and in reality, they should be falling, not breaking apart. So I applaud RF for having done this. But it just never felt like it added up to much.

Consider it's an entirely different entity that owns it now, one that never made a dime off the first release, and considering it's currently dead IP they're not trying to draw new players towards, I'd say it's going to be $19.99 for all.

@Beamer. Are you new here?
Remember his name and you will notice that EVERYTHING sucks in the Cutterverse.


While I have this spotlight, I'd like to point out that, while How I Met Your Mother became pretty bad towards the end (in the same way most shows do - the characters become cartoons instead of people, as they've already done everything possible and can either learn and grow, which doesn't work well for comedy, or lean into their quirks and become caricatures), the final season actually pulled each character back and had humor every bit as good as the first few seasons.

WaB applauds the gun gameplay, but funny enough that too bugs me. Am I the only one complaining about lack of feedback during gunfights? I really have to look closely sometimes to see whether I hit/killed someone. I'm used to some visual and audio feedback, like a blink on the crosshair when I hit or a *ding* sound indicating a headshot.

Maybe I got spoiled and pussified.

There's actually a good amount of visual indicator, but fights tend to be far and the blood is dark. Heads explode, or guys go down holding their junk (oops) or stomaches. I've been pretty impressed with the death animations, but yeah, you hardly see them.
The easiest way for me is that the red indicator over their heads will disappear immediately.

Also, when I did a fight today, I kept hearing this noise that sounded like something really bad happened to me, but nothing was happening. I dunno, maybe it was when one of them died? I was defending an NPC, and she was safe, and Boomer was safe, so I have no clue.

But yes, you complaining about not having a ding or a blink of the crosshair cracks me up. Not at you, mind you, I haven't noticed that issue in THIS game but certainly have in others. But on a forum where people endlessly complain/whine about consolization and how much better things where when everything was Doom, that stuff is totally the influence of consoles and COD:MW. Good influences, in my opinion. Just funny because someone else is reading it and thinking that we are lunatics.

Quboid wrote on Mar 29, 2018, 08:16:
I haven't been to Falls End. I picked a direction at random so I've been in Faith's territory. I haven't met Boomer either, who a lot of players seem to like (although I don't think I've ever liked an AI companion). I'll head that way next.

I went randomly, too, and ended up at Boomer before anything else at all. Either pure luck, or pretty good level design to herd me. Right after Boomer I found a helicopter, which I did a large loop in and tried to go to the giant statue (you can't), then returned to where I found it. Later stole a plane, went under a few bridges, then bailed somewhat randomly. Played a bit this morning and found Grace.

Boomer is cool, but can be overwhelming. I don't find that he kills as efficiently as the random dude you hire to help take your first outpost on the island, and he sees everything. EVERYTHING! Did a turkey fart in the woods? You just got an audio tone that an enemy is nearby, and it's on your HUD. On the plus side, since he spots everything and everyone, no one can sneak up on you. Is a guy climbing a ladder to shoot you in the back? Well, Boomer saw him, so now he has a red outline that you can see through walls. But seriously, Boomer, stop seeing cougars a mile away.

I heard the reverb in one cutscene (only time I did, but it could have happened prior), but my character was stunned, so I think it was intentional.

Otherwise, having a blast. I have no clue where I am or what I'm doing, but still really having fun. I was quick to unlock a 3rd weapon, and luckily did it a split second before I found a chaingun, or as I use it, a bear killer. I'm on Normal, and haven't had a real death in a while, as Boomer keeps rescuing me when I either fall off a cliff (ugh, that bugged me), or the time a big rig seemed to turn on a dime and smash me into a rock just as I got off an ATV (funniest death I had. No clue if it did turn on a dime, but it was a tight, 90 degree turn, and I expected him to keep going, not follow. Was very surprised when something enormous rammed into me.)

2.5 hours, 144 kills, 66 headshots, 3 outposts.
And yes, the hardest part for me, by far, was the opening car chase.
