CliffyB uses the word "poaching" like he knows what it even means. First, if his ex-employees accepts Epic's offer that's not poaching; it's called being smart. Second, poaching usually involve hunters entering owned lands and killing animals without permission.

I don't really care about anything going on here (though I was hoping for more info on what Boss Key is), but assuming you are not trolling, words have multiple meanings in English. 'to acquire in a clandestine way' is a perfectly valid definition of poach that doesn't involve people hunting Boss Key employs. I also poached some eggs over the weekend and I don't think any hunters were "entering" my "owned lands"...

William McCarroll, the former LawBreakers programmer was recently hired by Epic: "With all due respect, assuming that Epic is the one starting contact / poaching is a bit presumptuous. We all had our own reasons for making the choice to leave BKP for Epic, and to act like we are commodities being stolen is a bit hurtful. We are people first and foremost."

"Snatch" is a better word. It's triggers less drama than poach.

The trivia question on my Star-Wars-a-day calendar reads: "How many languages does C-3PO speak?" My first thought, being a Star Wars fan, was C-3PO doesn't speak six million languages. In the films, he repeatedly states that he speaks six million forms of communication. Forms of communication aren't languages. I think someone at Disney flubbed up.

Also, is it really poaching when people are probably jumping ship?

Nope. He's trying to create a trigger word to get people's jimmies in a bunch. It's the wrong trigger word. "Poaching" is not the word he should be using. What he should be using is "snatch."

There's that CliffyB we all know! Now that Rad Heights has fallen hard, he's back with his classic shenanigans blaming EVERYONE else for his company's spectacular failures.

CliffyB uses the word "poaching" like he knows what it even means. First, if his ex-employees accepts Epic's offer that's not poaching; it's called being smart. Second, poaching usually involve hunters entering owned lands and killing animals without permission. Boss Key doesn't OWN their employees.

Bioshock Intimate

I would prefer Bioshock Fallout. As the name implies, a unique setting in a metropolis wasteland loaded with unique nuclear-powered power-ups that can only be used for brief periods of time due to radiation poisoning. Gameplay wise, exposure to too much radiation poisoning will kill. As a medical doctor, you use your vast knowledge of medicines to keep yourself healthy, but the drugs you find aren't perfect, and they can scar in numerous ways including making you a mindless, organic automaton. You can risk splicing medicines together to create more potent medications, but at a potential cost. However, nuke power-ups are required to get through the wasteland and survive, so there's always a balance between staying POWERFUL and being WEAK and between LIFE through strength and survival and DEATH from sickness and hostiles.

I always thought content is more important than game play. So is the game play at least fun?

Radical Heights is the #1 game on Twitch. I give up. People are sheep.

Sea of Thieves was #1 on Twitch for its launch then banished out of the top 10 after less than week. The streamers like to showcase new games to keep people interested but usually go back to the tried and true.

Fortnite is the tried and true? Crazy. I don't get the Twitch / game streaming culture.

Night owls have a 10% increase in mortality risk, study says.

Likely related to driving the next day. Serious sleep deprivation has the same effect as driving under the influence.

If you think you can make something, do more work towards making it before showing it off. Blah blah, only one chance to make a first impression. How many games pick up steam later on in life, especially after a mediocre-or-worse launch? Fortnite, by completely changing what the game was (to the point that the title no longer makes sense), and... uh...?
With Lawbreakers failing the way it did, I'd guess this move is forced by their financial situation. Either release now and hope for some income or investor interest, or run out of cash for payroll in a few months anyway, having released nothing. I really can't see this doing well in any state though. At a superficial level, it's too similar to the pre-existing juggernaut of Fortnite. Much like the next big MOBA-situation of yesteryear.

For the sake of those hard-working developers, I hope it does well. Unemployment sucks.

Currently #65 in total players online, right alongside H1Z1 and Clicker Heroes... Not a strong showing for a F2P launch.

On Twitch it's #4 with 77,293 viewers.

Were all the $1,000 slots were already gone?

Yeah. Those $1K slots were gone in under eight hours.

As I mentioned in a previous topic I played the original but never got far. At the time it was a cool idea. I might even be interested in this, at a reasonable price point, if they make it Win7 compatible.

It's a certainty a complete edition will appear on Steam and GOG for $49.99 when ready (that's the going price on Kickstarter). For me, I'm backing primarily for the extremely limited tangible items plus the physical DVD. Haven't bought a physical PC game box in ages.

And everyone involved on this thought 'Yeah, this is gonna' be fucking radical, bro!'? Wow. Just wow.

However, never underestimate the negativity and cynicism among gamers. A game like this, even if it were good, would likely suffer the same response. The wounds are still fresh from LB. It's the game equivalent of a parent beating their child (shut down LB) and then two days later throwing a party (Rad Heights announcement and launch). Parent, "Oh, I didn't hit you hard! Hey, have some cake! It's rad."

I'm guessing they're doing this to see if there's any actual interest in this because they sure as hell can easily afford to do this themselves. I always thought it was a terrible game and terribly overrated.

No. There's already interest. Backers blew past Cyan's target goal in eight hours. Rand Miller opined about it.

Why is this significant? If you visit Steam, it's missing more a few of the Myst games. For example, Myst 3 is published by UbiSoft, and they don't sell it. Cyan talked to all the right people, including UbiSoft, and worked out a plan to not only get all the games but also update them for modern Windows. The purpose of the Kickstarter is to provide Cyan with a guaranteed pool of funds (Kickstarter works on an All-Or-Nothing funding model) to produce those physical exclusives. They stated they're costly to produce.

In full disclosure, I backed at the $250 level. As a Myst fan, the LCD Myst book and Gehn Pen and Inkwell look too amazing a collectible to pass up. You guys know how I feel about crowdfunding, but I think here it's fine. Cyan has a very specific objective and they reached 100% funding, plus they have an excellent track record of delivering.
