QAnon is like The Onion. It's fiction and made for entertainment.
It would be great if that was true. But it isn't.

It may actually be, if you really dig into how it was presented. It's fairly like that it's actually a hoax that people decided to take as truth.

Everyone here is a cultist. You just don’t grasp the concept of ideology. You push it every day on this board. Supporting free-speech is now far-right. I don’t see Gab working hard to silence anyone. Cheers.

Funny how the people who yell loudest about free speech don't actually understand how the right to free speech works.

In other words, they need an expert that will help them become better at manipulating people's emotions, thoughts, and reactions so as to better control their behavior.

And that isn't internet snark. That's literally what they're doing.

Some of the people in this discussion haven't actually read the articles. Here, I'll help:

“When ‘suiting up’ for a BD, especially with Judy, V will be given a headset that is meant to onset the instance. The headset fits over both eyes and features a rapid onslaught of white and red blinking LEDs, much like the actual device neurologists use in real life to trigger a seizure when they need to trigger one for diagnosis purposes. If not modeled off of the IRL design, it’s a very spot-on coincidence, and because of that this is one aspect that I would personally advise you to avoid altogether. When you notice the headset come into play, look away completely or close your eyes. This is a pattern of lights designed to trigger an epileptic episode and it very much did that in my own personal playthrough.”

The game apparently replicates a device specifically designed to cause seizures. That's a pretty big difference from just having flashing neon in the game.

And no, they should not remove flashing lights from the game (with the exception of redesigning the sieze-o-matic.) They should identify the risky bits and include an option to to turn them off.

Perhaps someone was tired of the same bullshit they've been slopping out for years.
The proper response would be to not buy their games. Anyone resorting to Swatting for any reason at all needs professional help.

And a good lawyer.

I recommend strongly against. Wasn't terrible, just really meh. Quit about halfway through. Go play it on XGP if you're curious.

I actually agree with this. It isn't awful, but nothing about it was particularly good, either. The combat was dull. The dialog was uninspired. The quests weren't enticing. The NPCs had no personality. It was just... dull.

Are we talking 14 hour days? Sleeping on cots in the office for six months? Or just one extra day a week for a month (IE - four extra days of work total?)

There's a huge difference.

It was Snyder's 'vision' that almost sank the DCEU to begin with. You have to match the creator's style to the content. Superman and Justice League are not Watchmen. It's why you don't see Tim Burton's Brady Bunch.

Although that last one might actually be fun...

Jason Todd's Red Hood is more or less Gotham's Punisher. Go read (or watch) Under the Red Hood.

It had a good atmosphere. The combat was dull, never making me think. The quests were both confusing and tedious. And the exploration felt like it was pointless, being the opposite of most games - instead of no reward for exploring, there was always a reward for exploring. So much so that it killed off the excitement of discovery.

2 hours isn't enough. A lot of games you need that much time to get setup and learn what the hell is going on. Never mind if the game isn't fully developed or a bugfest, how well it runs on your particular rig, etc. Give people a full day.

A lot of modern games can be completed in 10-15 hours. Giving people a refund after 24 hours of play is a bit much and would simply be allowing people to play many titles for free.

It'll be an upgrade over what's out there now, but of course it won't be as nice as that. Tech demos don't have things like AI and mechanics going on and eating up resources. Developers can't devote as much time to one level as they can a tech demo. Tech demos usually aren't subject to players doing completely off-the-rails things.

And yet, each generation is still an upgrade. And it isn't always obvious until you look back five years later and see what you used to think was the best of the best looking positively dated.

A somebody who has studied Nordic history, who has read both the Prose and Poetic Eddas, I have to say:

Vikings are becoming the new World War II. Oversaturation has burned me out on vikings.

I'd still like to see a game set in a mob type era. I'm not a history buff, but what is really left history wise?

The 1930s would have been awesome.

If they wanted the Viking era, set the thing in England toward the end of the Dark Ages. Have the Vikings as invaders/settlers rather than centering the game around them.

They've done Greece, give us Rome.

The American OR English Civil Wars.

The French Revolution.

Feudal Japan.

How about the 1960s/early 70s? Lots of fun politics going on with hippies and the Vietnam war that could make for interesting stuff for them to get mixed up on.

Mayans/Incas/Conquistadors.

It has little to do with fake accounts getting free games, and everything to do with reducing costs involved in support for hijacked accounts and being a good target for account hijackers.

I wouldn't be surprised if they gave away a few really appealing games in the next few weeks as further encouragement.
