99.99% of all minecraft players are young children, so I foresee no issues here whatsoever.

Except if you look at this quote from a year-old NY Times article, that quotes from Microsoft, that's not actually the case:

---
(Itís still popular across all age groups; according to Microsoft, the average player is between 28 and 29, and women make up nearly 40 percent of all players.)
---

which, considering the complexity of some of the redstone creations you see, makes sense that 99.99% of their playerbase aren't young children.

I'm not agreeing with the 99.99% stuff, there are lots of adults out there playing it (and making YouTube bucks doing it), but that Microsoft stat probably reflects the person who registered the account. The 6 year old isn't registering the account, their mom is.

Agreed.

REALLY?!

Do you even know what Bernie Madoff did?
He is the quintessential example of a fraudster.
Do you know anything about him at all? I can't believe you'd agree with him!

It's pretty damn good so far.
Feels like it's a LucasArts classic adventure for sure.

I had a call from a recruiter who wanted me to work on tooling for this in Albany at Vicarious Visions.
On the second call he got permission to reveal the game to me and it actually kind of deflated me instead of the hype it was supposed to achieve.
Aww I get to work on a grindy game I don't like and kind of feel is a perversion of FPS and move to Albany?

It's an MMO, that's pretty much how they all are.

Thanks for the insight.

Anytime. Also, as they say in show biz, a gig is a gig is a gig. What do you care if you don't like the game? It's a triple A title and looks good on a resume. It's not like you'd be playing it. Developing games is pretty much the same, regardless of how it plays.

Tell that to the recruiter. He thought I'd be geeked for sure.

"Where are they" is indeed what most of us say, but it is technically wrong by the rules of grammar, which obnoxiously call for "he" or less commonly "she" in this case.


What? No it's not / what rules?

edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they

From that article:

"The singular they had emerged by the 14th century and is common in everyday spoken English, but its use has been the target of criticism since the late 19th century. Its use in formal English has increased with the trend toward gender-inclusive language."

And their point about its recent uptick is the same distinction we already discussed here, that its increased use is to be gender-inclusive, not gender-neutral.

English is defined by its usage. There were some 19th century grammarians who rather arbitrarily and incorrectly proscribed its usage... To be citing them in the 21 century is kind of ridiculous given the long history of "singular they" both before, after, and contemporaneous to when they made their claims.

OverWatch reminds me too much of HOTS from an FPS POV. I got bored with HOTS.Too much grinding. OverWatch strikes me as the same old maps over and over again.

There's nothing to grind to.
It's no different than CS or TF2 in that respect.
You play to get better and because you like the competition.

It's such a good game. Even just the vanilla release alone.
I'm still playing my first city, so I haven't even experienced any of the expansion packs or new features... but someday I'll start that second one and get to play with a bunch of new mechanics.

Are you done? (I still don't understand why you're even here to begin with and why you chose that one small thing to give me a hard time about?)

You forgot again? I guess since you like circles I'll also repeat myself. I was explaining why you received eyerolls. It was because you met childish bullshit with childish bullshit and tried to call it mature.

Yes, I get it. I got it when I wrote it. I had reasons for writing it the way I did. If it sounded 'cringy' or 'not like an adult', I don't know what to tell you...maybe what you're all telling ME - Move on?

=-Rigs-=

I'm pretty sure you didn't and still may not... you characterized your reply as civil, mature, and taking the high road.
It wasn't.

The civil highroad where you characterize the post you're replying to as "childish bullshit" and inform them that you're ignoring them.

Another strategy to ignoring a person is just uh, ignoring them, and not replying at all.

No, you're right. I'm obviously not ignoring them entirely, but the Ignore system here, if you haven't seen it, allows you to click their name and see what they said. Being 'Ignored' doesn't preclude talking to them again essentially because of this. It's not an all or nothing system nor do I choose to use it that way as is my right.

Question...why did you choose that one thing to comment on? You didn't participate in this argument at any point, yet, again, like Verno, out of everything that was said, you choose to focus on that small piece? Did nothing RedEye say warrant a response? I find that very odd.

You know you're getting old when you keep hearing about these companies worth billions that you've never heard of or only ever vaguely heard of and have absolutely no idea what they do - much less how they make money,

It's nice to finally hear you admit that you're out of touch instead of insisting that a scam is afoot

Out of touch with what shallow, vacuous people are into, yes. I actually consider that a point of pride. Gosh, is it really true that over half the people you meet are of below average intelligence? Wry

So I suppose you learned more about that company today?
Since you're ready to make your proclamation on something you didn't know about a few hours ago.

And exactly how long do you need to study a puddle in order to know it's shallow? Just because it takes you longer to get there than the rest of us it's not our fault.

Who said I wasn't familiar with the app?
I was just surprised you acknowledged that you didn't know something before bloviating about it.
It didn't last long though.
