Too little too late. Most of the playerbase has already uninstalled.

I never get the too little too late argument. If a boatload of people left the game because peer-to-peer sucks, then isn't it conceivable that many of them will come back? They already plunked down at least $60 on the game - how hard is re-installing? I know that I am more interested now.

Watched the gameplay video of the early build. Looks really cool. Kind of reminds me of Resident Evil 4.

@Cutter, @eRe4s3r - Early Access and crowd funding are like the OTC stock market. I hope we're intelligent enough not to invest in such shenanigans.

Well hopefully YOU are smarter now, Mr Pre-order No Man's Sky.

I'm kind of on the fence about wether a huge publisher like Ubisoft has any business running an Early Access game in the first place. At least they're not pulling a Sega who is making the Shenmue 3 team run a crowdfunding campaign while saying they fully support its creation. Ah but give Ubisoft time...

So the desperation has set it. Pumping up the player count in order to prevent EA from killing the franchise?

I think at this point it would be more resignation instead of desperation. The series has been indefinitely put on hold because of the disappointing performance of Andromeda. (Disappointing to EA who was expecting double the sales it actually got anyway).

Now it's just a matter of ensuring the player base for multiplayer stays healthy enough to keep it from being another Battleborn I think.

I don't think there's much danger of EA killing the franchise altogether. I agree with the theory that I've read that EA intends to wait until the original team that made the original trilogy is done with their current project. Which means it could be another LONG wait for another Mass Effect.

I like the way Blizzard is handling updates for Overwatch. All in all, every hero gets picked at a decent rate, at least in Quick Play. I don't do much competitive because it's too toxic most of the time.

Maybe if they actually had sales on things that I want, I would participate. Judging from the previous sales, this will be a tedious waste of time.

Yeah, clearly people will buy damn near anything that's on sale tho, according to their statistics. I used to work in one of their warehouses for about 9 months, and people do indeed buy a LOT of junk. And dildos.

So many dildos.

as someone who works in the shipping side (UPS) can confirm so many dildos. old lady i once worked with had no idea what it was when one broke open. no one had the heart to tell her.

Hey guys don't judge me

Arguments about ethical treatment of handicapped people aside, when you think about it, virtually every car on the road is wheelchair accessible in the sense that you can place the person in your passenger seat and fold the wheelchair down and put it your trunk. Obviously wouldn't work for every handicapped person but it's been done by Uber drivers before.

49 U.S. Code # 13102...

...A taxi service is, among other things, passenger transportation in a motor vehicle which is offered by a person that provides local transportation for a fare...

And 49 CFR Sec. 37.29...

... taxi services are not required to purchase or lease accessible automobiles and is not required to add accessible vehicles to its fleet".

Unless there is some overriding law that I haven't found yet, this lawsuit should be against the US government to change its laws, not Uber.

I have to come out against the "the reviews should only review the game" crowd. There are very few ways customers can register feedback to a company in a way that can be heard - swamping them with bad reviews on steam is one of the only ways I can think of to send such a message. Moreover, if a portion of your enjoyment from the game had to do with the tools that were allowed to be used with it, and those tools were then disabled, it is actually reviewing the game. I would give skyrim that does not support mods a much worse review than the game that allows me to customize it and make it appeal to me in personalized ways.


Totally agree. The lack of mods DOES make it a worse game. But I need to point this out again for those saying fuck Rockstar for this: This is Take 2's dick move not Rockstar's. Blame the publisher, not the developer. Rockstar has supported and promoted modding of GTA for years.

Banning the online cheat tools is fine, but shutting down the
OPEN4 community is bullshit since the team took pains to ensure that the mods produced with them were strictly for singleplayer.

As far as the review spam goes, I'm of two minds on it. On the one hand I think it's great that gamers have found a way to unify in voicing their displeasure at a publisher for making a dick move. Unlike with Gamersgate no one is getting hurt by this. On the other hand, the downvotes are also affecting a good game by a good developer. Rockstar has always been supportive of the modding community and now they are being punished over something over which they have no control. This is Take2's dick move, not Rockstar's.

Well considering their attempts post-bankruptcy at reviving the properties they still own (Haunted House, Alone in the Dark, Asteroids) have all been disasters, this will not go well I think.

The manslaughter law the judge cited seems very clear to me - she actively coerced a clearly mentally and emotionally vulnerable and unstable person to kill himself. She was aware that her actions would likely result in the death of a person and went so far as to cajole him back into the truck when he got scared and tried to back out. That's manslaughter in my book. This is very different from someone on a chat forum telling a stranger to go kill themselves - in my opinion there is no dangerous precedent being set here. The law as written is pretty specific.
