Anyway, just you wait; it will turn out that the only reason EA is doing this is because they don't want to pay for a license to a third-party (like Easy Anti-Cheat) for the functionality. I'd wager this move might even have been inspired by one or more of those third-parties trying to renegotiate their deal with EA.

It certainly won't result in more robust software since it will just be a side-operation for EA, whereas companies like Punkbuster or EasyCheat do nothing but work on the thing (and even they have problems getting it right). It's a penny-pinching move by EA's C-level execs, nothing more.

To be fair. Most companies in any industry look to reduce costs and not want to have to license everything.

But.... why?
Maybe he wants more time to play Elite.


Know I'm gonna shit for this, but Elite while awesome in it's own time (and a great VR Showcase), they have only had Planet Zoo and the 2 Jurrasic World games. Star Citizen is vastly more fun to play (even with limited content in alpha).

I had a really good time with Planet Coaster.

Have the same weird problem with drying on balcony at my apartment block in Iceland.
House rules states no drying laundry there (or no clothing lines at least I believe), and no dusting things during daytime? Weird that it seems I can dust things between 8 pm & 7 am..
Part of the excuse seems to be that stuff on the balconies can not be a "blemish" for the looks of the block.

People don't seem to take it too seriously though, I've seen a few with low hanging lines basically out of sight, and a few (me included) just have a portable hanger that we can move in & out as needed (also kinda hidden out of sight).

Yeah, same. When I rented the place it had those portable hanger rack things right there on the balcony haha. Not sure how I was supposed to know from that, that I wasn't allowed to dry clothes out there.

That's pretty messed up. It seems like from other comments, though, there may still be some light at the end of your deck. At least the rule makes some sense. I don't know if it's a law or a regulation in my apartments in Kuala Lumpur, but we are not allowed to hang our clothes to dry outside on the balconies. We don't have dryers here. It's not a very common thing to own. So...we are supposed just to leave it indoors to dry. This will double the time it takes to dry the clothes (a day and a half or so) rather than half a day.

Yes... I left China finally. Just before their recent covid lockdowns again this year.
Talk of in the nick of time. Things seems to be going downhill for gamers there too.
Best of luck in your new home !

Indeed and thanks! Yeah. It was like maybe a month or two after I left. Just before I departed new covid cases were popping up mere blocks away from my home. I was getting nervous that lockdown would happen or I would catch it.

If they go down the route they did before with DLC and such, it's a no go for me.

Not a "no go" for me but definitely a long wait & see for a complete edition (on sale). It might turn into a no go yet if a Relic account is also required for the full game and not just that playtest.

I remember that the first or second one (it's been like a decade) was me opening it up, and nearly every button I clicked said I had to buy something to play that part. I was like... WTF?

Not a fan of the Ignore link. It will be a pain to click that, and I click that more than any other button. I'll probably make a Tampermonkey script to make it into a proper button.

I also prefer to view the queue on the store page to see the ratings, information, and whatnot. This popup modal doesn't provide enough information. All this is going to do is lead to me opening these games in new tabs.

That's what I do. Open in new tabs if I am interested. Guess it's just a different preference to flow.

GameStonk NFT marketplace. They survived for this?

Trend following idiots saved a company that was mismanaged and destined for bankruptcy and dissolution for over a decade and you are surprised that this is the end result? I mean, these morons bought Think geek and almost immediately devalued it. I get wanting to save AMC. Some people like watching movies in theaters, tradition, whatever. Why the fuck does anybody want to save a game company that went from a great place to trade games to a place that markets to you and tries to force you into subscriptions and pre-orders?

THen they jump on NFTs as soon as people start realizing what a scam they are. Good timing, Gamestop. I see you are run by the sharpest of the sharp, as always.

I really miss the old ThinkGeek. Does anything similar exist now?

I'd love for them to revisit the Stroggos Wars. While I loved Q1, it really didn't have a 'story', per se. Disparate level designs between episodes. It was brutal and simple: You're Quakeguy [Ranger], Earth figured out teleporters, eldritch entity connects into it, go kill the entity. A mix of themes and such [If Petersen was working on a project, it probably had Cthulhu stuff. Which is good. Because Cthulhu Wars is amazing.]

That's how id rolled back then (or still does?). Instead of envisioning a story, writing a script and creating the scenes (levels) to tell that story, id always first built the gameplay and levels and then wrote a thin napkin script to connect the levels to each other. That's why I think it is rather pointless to debate about the "stories" of Doom or Quake etc. - They don't really have one and id never really cared. They never gave it much/any thought. Which is probably the reason why Q3A dropped the campaign altogether and went full multiplayer arena style.
Q4 was an attempt to do something with a little more story again since squad-based shooters were popular at the time but it turned out pretty mediocre. The "story" of Q4 was also an afterthought.

Q4 was primarily developed by Raven though. That's why there was an attempt at a story haha.

Can we fly planet to planet in a single system or is the flight limited to mission areas of some sort? Because they never mentioned that.
