To an adult of sound mind and in good mental health it's easy to feel incredulous (and even callous) that anyone would go along with this. Therein lies the inherent lack of understanding however; an adult of sound mind and in good mental health simply lacks the natural ability to relate to a troubled child with mental health issues.

1. "Blue Whale" game suicides Jul 16, 2018, 10:24 Prez
 
Okay, that Blue Whale game suicide story is so freaking disturbing on so many levels. Not the least of which it seems identical to the plot of a movie I saw about an internet game mind-controlling people into killing themselves.

I kissed my $20 (or was it $25?... I can't even remember anymore) good bye a long time ago.

Unfortunately, that is the risk you take with a kickstarter game.

If you pledged a shitload and bought a bunch of ships... well... you're a dumbass.

/shrug

I'd have to say I agree with this; I remember when I backed a "spiritual successor" to the first Rainbow 6 by one of the "developers" of the original (turns out he was an artist or something...). It was called 'Project Takedown' or something like that and it was absolutely terrible - I've played 99 cent Unity asset flips that were better. I didn't blame anyone but myself, and chalked my $20 up to being my personal "stupid tax". Anyone who backed Star Citizen as a kickstarer is in the same boat - you took a gamble and lost. Accept that this is your "Stupid tax" (we've all paid it in life, many of us more than once), learn from it, and move on. Kickstarter makes it clear that refunds are only available if and when the project isn't funded in 30 days, which obviously wasn't the case with SC.

The argument can be made that much of SC's funding was paid to CIG after the kickstarter was already completed, which is indeed valid, but they did deliver something, and funders have been playing it, so I don't see that going anywhere in court. As far as precedent goes, I'd say there is some already - the lawsuit against Gearbox for the blatant lies told about Aliens Colonial Marines was thrown out of court, and I'd argue that that game was the poster boy of products not delivering on what was promised far more so than in SC's case in my opinion.

They mean 'most popular game currently' I think. At one time 'The Sims' was the most popular game on earth, but isn't anymore.

I still immediately mute all voice and block anyone in text chat who says anything more than "Hello". Okay, so it makes team coordination hard, but the experience is much better overall. I couldn't give a rat's ass about endorsements.

If the AI had been the only problen with this game then this would have been a much bigger deal. Still, if the bad AI was what you hated the most from the original release, this patch does make it markedly better.

I can't help but feel that BluesNews is pushing for the ban of InfoWars on Facebook. Please don't mix my hobby of gaming with politics. Only bad things will come from it.

You are certainly free to stay out of political discussion here an stick to whatever echo chamber you are most comfortable with. We talk about all manner of things here besides gaming.
We also limit our political discussions to either OotB, where all topics are welcome, or a thread like this one with a relevant story.

Well, not always.

But, yeah, Alex Jones is just a garbage person. I'm kind of glad he exists though - knowing who watches/listens to him is a quick way for me to identify who not to engage in anything beyond incidental conversation.

I'm came across this on Steam last night, and as I always do for entertainment I scanned the user reviews. Overall, very negative. Seems like fans of the first who got screwed are still a bit bitter.

News Comments > Overwatch League on ESPN
8. Re: Overwatch League on ESPN Jul 12, 2018, 09:01 Prez
 
According to Twitch.com stats matches were viewed almost 110 million times in the first season of OWL. Clearly there's an audience. Personally I'm going to keep watching on Twitch, but I imagine that more people will be watching on ESPN than most people think. ESPN stepped out of the realm of exclusively traditional sports long ago, so I don't see this as weird at all.

As an aside Zoey is hot af.

I'm not seeing Joaquin as Joker, but then again I couldn't see Heath Ledger as Joker either until I saw the movie and was blown away by the job he did. Honestly though when I think Joker I think of the Arkham Knight game series - the graphic depiction coupled with Mark Hamill's brilliant voice acting was the epitome of perfection.

It's a reasonable suggestion, albeit one that asks for something that should be inherently obvious. But if a written policy stating "Don't be a fucking asshole to your player base on social media" is all they are asking for, it isn't that hard.

It's hard to imagine any writer more completely missing the point and deliberately misrepresenting what took place than this idiot did. So even though a male got fired - for being far less rude and demeaning than his female counterpart was, this is still somehow about unfair treatment of women? Riiiiiiight.

I am glad it is coming to PC, even if it is way late. If history is any indication, I'd say that modders will fix any weird port issues like frame rate caps within the first week, if not the first 24 hours.

I used "white-knighting" twice, and I stand by it. Anyone who defends a despicable a person who so readily plays the victim while berating and insulting a customer who was only trying to engage in polite discussion (and who previously celebrated the death of industry legend John Bain) while chalking the backlash up to white privileged misogynists is doing exactly that. Or, if you prefer, I can just say that they are being complete and utter assholes. I figured "white knight" sounded better. You can make sweeping claims about the use of terminology all you like; sorry but you don't control the narrative, as much as you'd like to.

> What other choice does ArenaNet have here?

the company can do whatever it wants. the question to grapple with is why thousands of people brigaded to get two people fired. was it really because they were fighting for the justice of men who are abused on twitter?

Who brigaded to get her fired at Paizo?

Why is so important to you that she be in the right here (even when she obviously isn't)? Rather than worry about the motivation of internet anons, why don't you take a moment to contemplate your own...?

Because self-loathing white-knighters can't accept that a woman can be a despicable person too. It's only the oh-so privileged white guys who can't see beyond the noses on their faces at fault.
