The banned player's stated intent was to use his platform to draw attention to the issue. Whether Blizzard budges or not, he's succeeded.

Frogwares, I can get your games listed again. But there is something we'd like you to do though. Investigate Joe Biden.

The fact that the pink unicorn said this on camera made me laugh out loud, and I am not usually one for laughing at the news. Like, I think he has a medical condition or something, there is no way someone can be this mentally stupid to literally fuel the allegations by DOING THE EXACT SAME THING A 2ND TIME, ON CAMERA.

Thank you Americans, for giving a bored European some entertainment in the news.

Yeah, now we get to know what the people on FailArmy feel like.

Enjoy our shame and humiliation.

Possibly. It certainly sounds villainous, but I try not to judge until I hear both sides. I've seen enough "Egads!" events like this that turned out to be something very different than what was claimed.

That didn't clarify. It confirmed what people were pissed about. They already understood just fine.

we are working hard to make sure this is the best Call of Duty we’ve ever made and the best experience possible for fans.

If the fans on the PS4 get something more than the rest of them, then you aren't working to make it the best experience for the fans. Just for PS4 fans. The rest get something less.

On mallards, the bright green/gray coloration is seasonal. They're colorful in the winter and spring, but molt and take on more subtle colors after breeding season.

There are other ways to tell them apart, assuming that they're pure mallard. First, males have yellow bills; females have orange/brown bills. Males also have a softer voice, while the females have a very harsh, loud quack.

FWIW, I run the thing with great performance on a mix of high and ultra settings at 1080. My system is an i5 4670k and 8 gigs of RAM (so horribly out of date) and and RTX 2060 (new and fast.) That suggests to me that this system is more dependent on video cards than anything, as most games choke on my CPU and RAM long before the video card can compensate.

Metacritic user scores are as useless a reference as they've ever been. If you look a little closer, almost all of the scores are either 9-10 or 0-1 with very little in between. That absolutely screams of review bombing, likely by the Epic haters who see this as a prime target to 'get back' at the boogeyman they invented.

I hope so. Dogma is, arguably, one of the worst games I've ever played. It's not hard to top it.

You must not have played many games.

No Denuvo. Good.

No open world. That's great news. I don't need another thousand collectibles and filler quests that, should I spend the time, unbalances the main game.

No mod support. Eh, no big deal, as long as it doesn't have issues.

No DLC. Shrug. We've had DLC since the ancient days of PC games. They were called 'expansion packs' back then, and you got them at the store (normally for $20), but they were the same thing. Of course they were always content, not skins, not perks, not material pulled from the base game to sell separately.

Meritocracy Is Killing High-School Sports.

Good. Privatize teen sports, and let the schools spend their budget on other things. You know, like competent teachers.

I don't blame them. It's like planning a trip a year in advance before the reservations even open up. Then, every time a date turns out to be wrong, a thousand people jump on them.

I can't imagine why they'd publish a date for a feature that isn't even in development yet to begin with.

News Comments > Infinite Falls Fires Designer & Cancels Game Over Abuse Allegation

Impossible situation,and for many reasons that haven't been mentioned. You can't know that the accusations are true. You can't know that they're false. It isn't fair to ruin somebody's life over an accusation.

Rape accusations cannot be ignored, but the potential for abuse of those accusations by spiteful fired employees, exes, or just someone with an axe to grind can't be ignored either when the mere suggestion ends careers. This is new ground for our society. We still haven't figured out what the right answer is, the answer that serves the victims without creating new victims. It'll take a while.

BUT: If the accusations are made and you take no action, then later on that person repeats the crime while on the payroll, you may very well be found liable for what they did. "You were warned that this person was dangerous, and yet you continued to let him hold a position of authority and power over the victims."

Many businesses will cut ties, not out of some sense of justice, but out of pure self defense. And that sucks, too.

I doubt he'll learn his lesson that fans mostly want entertaining games without excessive real-world ideologies. Most people game as a way to escape real-world issues, not to indulge in those ideological issues further.

He can push all the anti-Nazi ideology he likes. Nazis, WWII and otherwise, can collectively fuck off.

Notice I didn't say 'conservatives.' Different things.

Epic's business model is not exclusivity. Epic's business model is the same as everyone else's. It is Epic's plan for competing with Steam that involves exclusives, but only on specific titles chosen by them. It isn't their only option.

Is it really competition if you only have one place to buy any given game? When I think of competition I think of competitive pricing for the consumer, something I haven't seen on EGS.

It is competition when EGS puts a big enough dent in the market that Steam and Epic start competing actively with each other for customers, yes. And right now, Steam is so huge that the only way to break into that market is by taking more 'extreme' steps. Free games, big sales (once they figure out how to do that right), and exclusives. Once they have a customer base that can compete with Steams, that's when we (consumers) can start seeing the benefits, and Epic can dial back the tactics. If they don't take those steps right now, though, they don't have a chance in hell of their client ever being competitive.

Or not. They could end up being hostile and consumer-unfriendly after they've established themselves. We won't know for years.

What scares me, though, is what happens if Steam turns hostile without any competitors.

Nice to see a dev who gets it.

They all 'get it'. We all 'get it'. Some of us think that the long-term benefits of a competitive marketplace outweigh the issues of exclusivity deals.

In five years we may even know who was right. Until then? Just guesses.
