A couple of things I'd like to know:

1) How long are the days they are working?
2) How long have they been crunching for?

I'm against crunch but in a lot of blue collar jobs it is simply unavoidable. I cannot tell you how many 16-hour days or 7-day weeks I've worked. The fact that they are getting a day off already puts them ahead of virtually anyone else.

That's f'ing insane, "40"H/W is ludicrous enough as it is when you take into account all the non-remunerated time it vampirizes that is dedicated to work and you can't dedicate to anything else. You wake up at 7, prepare for work, commute 1 hour, start at 9, work 8 hours, commute 1 hour back then if the day was stressful you need a few hours winding down time ( not gonna count it here, but it still vampirizes the shit out of you nonetheless ). Mind you, a lot of people commute a lot more than that...

So 2 hours morning dedicated to work, 8 hours of actual work, another hour dedicated to work after commuting back. That's 11 hours per day, 5 days a week.

You have 24 hours per day, 8 hours of sleep ( less will have negative health consequences in the long term, vampirizing even more time ), 11 hours work, you're left with 5 hours of downtime. So much for 1 third work, 1 third sleep, 1 third leisure.

So in reality if you work for 20$/hour for 8 hours a day, you're really working at a rate of: ( 8/11 ) * 20 = 14.45$ dedicated work hours you can't dedicate to anything else.

I spent the better part of my life in manufacturing jobs. They pay well but it can be really hard. I did nothing but work and sleep more than once.

You never know - the Early Access might have given them time to right the ship. Will be watching a few "Let's Plays" to see if they did when it ships.

No one loves animals - all of them - as much as I do, but videogame violence stays only videogame violence, be it against people or animals.

I personally don't care too much since I rarely buy AAA games at full price anyway. I do think that Publishers are running out of acceptable ways to keep investors happy. This at least is the most honest.

If game devs of color were as prevalent as white game devs this probably would be pandering. As it is, it's simply a way to give increased exposure to a lesser represented group in order to get other devs of color to get into gaming, fixing the problem. Maybe we'll see one for female game devs as well. Ultimately the games have to be good or I won't care, and honestly I could care less what people think that says about me.

Fleta is absolutely one of the best. Honestly so little separates the top contenders that I would have been happy with any of them. Fleta, however, is a great choice.

I guess it's about expectations. "Sands of Time"'s gameplay is still pretty great, so the graphics are all that really need to be re-made. Maybe it's too early?

That is objectively not true: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_National_Football_League_career_passer_rating_leaders

Maybe you're just not very good at tolerating Blacks speaking their mind?

No seriously, he isn't that good, mostly it's because he is FAR too inconsistent. He looks brilliant on one drive then looks like he is trying out for second string high school the next. Is he the worst who ever played? No, of course not. But top pick? Hell he is below middle of the pack in my book. As far as his protests, I am indifferent when the game comes on. I want to watch football. He can speak his mind all he wants, (hell, off the field I support it - I believe in equal rights and support far less police brutality) but on the field you are there to play a game first and foremost. He will be remembered more for starting a movement than his play. Why do you jump to not wanting blacks to have a voice right off the bat? Of course I do.

Football is still about athletes with amazing skill right? I don't mind if he kneels, sits, stands on his head, whatever during the National Anthem. He really just isn't that good at Football.

These are just a layman's views mind you, as I'm definitely not a lawyer, but it simply cannot be called a monopoly when in the larger scheme Apple owns around 50% of phones in the US and much less worldwide. Also, the duopoly as it exists was, for better or worse, explicitly chosen by the market at large. Calling the platform they created a monopoly simply because they make the rules seems pretty ridiculous to me when I can easily decide to buy an Android instead. I can't pretend I can predict any legal rulings, but those are pretty important distinctions as to why I consider this case is considerably different from the Microsoft case from years back.
