Jesus christ you're dumb if you believe this, the last 20 years of PC gaming has been a disaster with the acceptance of drm and mmo's having normalized basically renting games in perpetuity from game companies, very little on the dedicated server side and mod tools from major AAA games compared to the 90's.

Disaster? It has thrived like it never has. There are 1000's of games, overall prices are lower, tons of choices in each genre. Back then it was dry times you had to wait and dream of releases. DRM pfff...

I think you missed the sarcasm.

Was it sarcasm? Sounds like a valid point, guy comes out talking about copying ideas, like his is original and then a day or two later announce they are going to do replays, again not all that original. To me that doesn't mean the game is bad at all though, just sort of odd logic being used over there. As one said, you sold 22 million be happy.

Have any of Rockstar's money suits bothered to look at the stats for VR?

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Why are they releasing a game for a dead technology or at least a tech with no interest? The only possible thing I can come up with is HTC and Valve are paying Rockstar to make LA Noire into a VR game for Vive as a way to boost sales.

I doubt it, if you cared to frequent VR spaces, you can see things are healthy enough, growing and those coming in are blown away. But whatever, you just want to close the door.

When seeing as it was UPS' fault to begin with they should have been responsible.

All carriers protect themselves against things like this, fraud is bad as-is, it would be historic if they just paid up. People try this shit all the time, jewelry, or pack fragile keepsakes like total armatures and the goods break in-transit. They are clear on money back guarantee on shipping and only up to $100 for lost/damaged items. There are limits to buying insurance, but you basically have to be a company who consistently ships goods with tested shipping materials. Shipping small packages wouldn't work any other way, fraud would destroy it.

I'll probably wait for the first major sale of the game + patches, but Far Right 5 looks like solid fun. Interested to see how they've improved coop.

I'm Republican-ish: definitely opposed.

Understand the argument for it though, which is basically "get out of our face government" and allow the free market (which is proven since 1300) to create innovation and wealth for the entire population.

Some thing will rise and kill price gauging by offering a cheaper alternative.

I guess I semi-agree with it LOL

It sounds good, but in reality someone will always cheat and when one does it, it forces the rest to do it. Lower standards, race to the bottom. The whole gov't get out of my face is a dream heaven is made of. We have to have regulations because people will always undercut and then to a point gouging/safety becomes a concern. I'm liberal slanted (solely based on we are all different), but center'ish overall. I'd be right there in line, if I felt this idea of gov't get out of my face works. THERE IS ALWAYS AT LEAST ONE THAT WILL SCREW IT UP AND THAT IS WHY A LAW/REGULATION IS MADE. They aren't made out of thin air, there is a case and that case is studied and ruled upon, sometimes triggering the gov't to take action in. We have to accept that reality and then understand why gov't is needed. It is, if you are thinking not, then you need to keep on thinking.

Free market's have already not applied to ISP's, they've already created laws that are anti-competition. They've also grown so large and powerful to eat up competition as well. They've also shown that we've given them tax dollars to Build X and they didn't and pocketed it. AGAIN ALL REASONS FOR GOV'T, LAWS AND REGULATIONS. CAUSE THE FUCKERS CHEATED.

While I dislike games like those, since they dont offer much replay value for me, I would still prefer this over ARK. This actually feels more like a mini-MMO RPG, while ARK feels like DayZ with dinosaurs, AKA pointless.

Depends on what kind of server you play on. Being that you can run your own, there are many possibilities.

Assuming gamer:
8 a solid recommended minimum.
16 handles additional overheads many will use.
32 specific needs territory.

Well that is their problem and not ours, I just play the games. Why do I really care if they made a calculated mistake in marketing, which I don't really know?

You should care because what succeeds decides what comes out. Stuff like Dishonored and Prey doesn't sell, executives get the idea no one wants more games like that (even if it's the publisher's fault and people do).

Too many things to worry in life and as much as I like games as the next guy, nahhh. I'm just trying to judge again without near enough details. I know that's a pretty practical response, but that is wisdom coming with age. Getting over myself now.

Bethesda really needs to do a better job of marketing their games. Prey, Evil Within, Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored... they've made a lot of good games over the past few years but failed to give them the exposure they need to really succeed. EW2 is a significant improvement over the first game in many ways but it barely got any marketing.

The internet people are not a small minority anymore.
Depends on how you definite "internet people". If you mean, people who interact with the Internet in some way on a regular basis, you are correct. If you mean, people who use computers, generally understand how they work, and comprehend the issues which will arise from Ajit Pai's actions -- then you are wrong.

I'm talking people that use it and PAY for it. You don't need to have an understanding beyond cost and restrictions of service.

Right, I'm not a single issue voter. A lot of the commenters on this board are politically sophisticated. That being said, at my age if it comes down to Social Security vs Net Neutrality, it's no contest.

The good news in that choice, they align to the same parties:

Dems:
For SS
For Net Neutrality

Repbus:
Scaled back SS
No Net Neut

Hard choice, no? You have to be someone that has life made in the shade and needs nothing but more laws to protect your business to vote Repub these days.

Right, but my point is that older voters might put NN further down the list compared to Millennials.

And that is their right, not that you are questioning it. But that is where others have to make up for it and vote. Grandma and Grandpa also use technology these days, if there is a link between this ruling and restriction/higher prices perhaps even they will see it. Thing is SS And NN align the same way. As does reduced healthcare and many other things. Can they put their pride aside? I say yes when it hurts enough.
