"We live in a world where periods are seen as something to be ashamed of, even though women have had them since the dawn of time."

What world is that? I would think guys (who I guess are the 'bad guys' in this world hating on women for having their periods) would be happy if their girlfriend got their period, and possibly sad if they got their period if they were trying to get pregnant.

I don't know, I had to stop reading the article because it was insane but still, as said above, there are no search hits on this. It almost seems like a troll 4chan thing.

(edit) In fact, the only thing close in Google are women hating getting their periods. I'm sure they hate it for reasons not associated with someone shaming them for it. It's crazy I even have to type this shit.

California's "Charge Phone in Microwave" certainly beats out Florida for most inane and hilarious search. It's brain damage level stupidity.

My buddy used to be a union rep at a Chrysler plant. I asked him what he did all day and his answer was "I try to find out ways to rip the company off". Let's set aside people sleeping on the job and getting paid 150K a year to rivet cars...his job was to find out all the ways to rip the company off.

The plant closed down and thousands lost their job. I asked him if it was worth it. All the union BS if the end result would be all those people losing their livelihood. His answer was 'No'.

Only low intellect do-nothings think a union benefits them.

Oh, Anthem. I thought your no text chat in the demo was a bug or a feature purposely removed from the demo.

Nope, no text chat on release(most likely) due to some insane FCC requirement compliance. Fucking Ajit Pai strikes again.

All Anthem issues aside, that FCC requirement(any text chat MUST have text to speech; insanity!) is going to fuck over a LOT of games, particularly Indie games, at least until some company makes some text to speech plugin readily available and cheap.

"Video game software has been exempt from ACS accessibility requirements since 2012. However, at the end of 2017, the FCC granted the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) a final extension of the waiver of ACS accessibility requirements for video game software. Both the FCC and ESA have agreed that no additional waivers will be needed or granted. As a result, following the waiver expiration, any new video game software released will need to be compliant with the ACS requirements."

1) First waiver in 2012 (hmm, I wonder who was president then?)
2) They had at least 7 full years to implement
3) Got another extension in 2017
3) It's for disabled people
4) But you got your Ajit dig in
5) https://twitter.com/i/status/1092981794473984000

News Comments > Boycott May Cause Next Metro Game to Skip PC

Dev is totally right. Especially this part "I firmly know that almost everyone who pours this dirt on the net is also incapable of a bit of what we have done and hopefully do more. And that means they have no idea what they are talking about."

But muh 'Steeeeeeaaaaammmmmm'...who has been screwing over fans/dev with inflated prices and % for over a decade.

Game is going to be awesome, preordered. If they release on next gen only, so be it.

As gaming dorks you all should be supporting Devs like this instead of tearing them down because you like a particular distribution policy.

Yea yea, "it's only $2 savings/gains here or there" or "I'll gladly pay bloated Gabe $10 more so my friends list is available".

Just listen to yourselves. Don't buy it if you disagree with their policy but trying to hurt the devs, who poured their hearts out developing the game (with all the sacrifice to family that entails) is pretty scummy. Yet typical for snowflake nation.

...queue melting snowflake screams below. Ready. Set. Go.

I get the game for $10 less...what is the issue here? Who cares about steam? I'll play the game for X hours, enjoy it, finish it, then delete it.

Everyone here knows about game binging and game addiction. If you don't believe in them you are a liar. We all know they exist and that the addiction part is as strong as any drug psychologically.

The problem is with children (how adults wish to live their lives is up to them). I get addicted to games and am glad I didn't have that option as a kid. Yes, we had atari and other game outlets/arcades, but it wasn't at your fingertips 24/7. Plus the games were short due to no save features/memory etc.

The biggest difference is there wasn't any social aspect to them (vast majority of the time). I hear now that if you *don't* play Fortnite that you are ostracized in school. You aren't *cool*. Now, that may be because they are junior basement dwellers in training but the mind-fuck of that must be pretty difficult for a teen.

Add in phone addiction, no gym class, and parents who let their kids eat/do anything and you have a real issue.

I guess one could say the addiction is good because it keeps kids off the street or some other thing but games are now the new facebook (ego-trip/social value/'likes'...and nothing good came of that.

Did anyone ever really think that this wouldn't happen? It will split more than once.

Tribalism and capitalism working together basically guarantees it.

And yet it is the Chicoms who are splitting it...but let's blame capitalism or the gop or some other excuse to ignore commies who should be erased.

The coming 40 year conservative hold on the SC is all that matters.

Elections have consequences. LMFAO

I like Cavil well enough, but as Geralt? Yeah, I dunno about that. I thought someone like Mads Mikkelsen would be perfect for the role.

Mads would have been perfect. Maybe he was seen as being too old.

Their ability to quickly add new content to that game is fairly impressive. I've never played it but they keep adding carrots for their users.
