Also, Texas law doesn't say you can't sign a union worker under a collective bargaining agreement. There are all kinds of unions in Texas. You just can't make membership mandatory for employment, and any collective bargaining agreement in Texas is going to reflect that.

I think Mr. Baker refused to work for gearbox, not gearbox refused to hire him, according to the gearbox statement.

News Comments > Bobby Prince Sues Valve, Gearbox, and Randy Pitchford

8. Re: Bobby Prince Sues Valve, Gearbox, and Randy Pitchford Sep 30, 2019, 14:12 wtf_man
 
Anybody sucessfully suing Randy and Gearbox makes me grin from ear to ear.

Yes, I dispise them that much after DNF and ACM debacles... Way to kill 2 awesome franchises in one fell swoop! ...and I never liked /disired that cel animated crap Borderlands series. Pretty much the only thing they did well was the original Half-Life expansions, but you can't be judged on 20+ year old sucess.

...and his hypocritical rant on MS years ago and Windows was going to be a walled garden and throw all the competition out, that didn't happen and he built his walled garden. He was projecting on MS what he wanted to do himself. Those are my two.

Yeah, that is fairly hypocritical... squawking about wanting the platform to remain open, Windows Store is bad m'kay, etc. etc., and then shiznitting out exclusives for EGS as if that wasn't a "closed off system".

Not that I personally give a shiznit about EGS exclusives (in general)... but the Hypocrisy by Sweeny is fairly apparent.

Already have Metro...DRM Free.... From GOG.

I'd rather pay for DRM Free and remain launcher-less and telemetry-less (At least as far as my devices are concerned... the store, of course is free to keep track of all my purchases and figure out my interests from that)... thank you.

Call me crazy, but Windows 11 could run on Linux.

Yeah...that's all we need.... Linux with Microsoft Telemetry / Spyware.

No thanks.

News Comments > System Shock 3 Trailer

9. Re: System Shock 3 Trailer Sep 11, 2019, 11:34 wtf_man
 
Well at least this doesn't LOOK as fucked up as Underworld Acendant. (Otherside Entertainment screwed that up royally)

I'm still waiting on the System Shock 1 remake from Nightdive Studios (Never played 1,and I don't want to spoil it with the "enhanced edition").

I absolutely loved System Shock 2... and no... the Bioshock Series doesn't even come close as a "spiritual successor"....Prey (2017) is the closest thing to a "spiritual successor" to the System Shock series, IMO. If you liked Prey 2017, you'll love the System Shock series.

Agreed, but AMD has only been able to really compete with nVidia in th "bang for buck scenerios" instead of top end... and sometimes they don't do that well at that.

I've not followed the tale of Bioware for a long time now; is there anyone notable left from before the EA purchase?

There may be a few, but the large majority of all the great guys and gals there who made and wrote all these awesome games (aka, the so-called 'Bioware Magic', which was just fantastic people who managed to make great games despite their incompetent-as-fuck management) have left.

It's sad, really. Bioware has been my favorite developer for probably 15 years.

There is no Bioware. It was killed long ago by EA. They're just keeping the name / brand like they still do with "Origin"... and that's not even a studio anymore.

Another one bites the dust.

I haven't bought an EA game since the Origin store went up, and never will again (Unless it's on GOG).

News Comments > Op Ed

29. Re: Op Ed Aug 7, 2019, 18:48 wtf_man
 
Honestly I really don't give a shit about "another store" or "exlusives to get it off the ground".

As I've said from the get go... I'm not installing yet another DRM launcher that is data mining me. Fuck! These launchers are more invasive than the old "cd-rom check root kits".

Just leave me the fuck alone and let me play my game. No telemetry... no ads... no phoning home... no bullshit.

GOG (without Galaxy) FTW!

I have 1000% mmo burnout.

No more nerfing for me.
No more combat revamps / respeccing for me.
No more making hard earned items / crafting materials obsolete with expansions.
Essentially, no more “rule changes” after actively investing lots of time.
I’ll stick to single player games, thank you.

Cool... I'll pick up a used 2070S when the next gen comes out.

The pricing is still stupid.

Hate to say it... but all they have to do is make a "free stream" some shit resolution like 240p, and give it poor bandwidth so it stutters / buffers alot.

News Comments > Tim Sweeney on EGS' Impact

11. Re: Tim Sweeney on EGS' Impact Jun 26, 2019, 13:45 wtf_man
 
Get off the DRM launcher bandwagon and I'll buy stuff from the EGS store. Champion it like Jobs did with the Music industry for iTunes.

Otherwise, 1 is enough.... which happens to be well established.

If I can wait for stuff to come on to GOG... I can surely wait for exclusives of newer games to "expire" for Steam. (Which would be patched and most likely discounted by that point)

Bottom line... the exclusives strategy, by itself, won't work.

Yup. Love GOG... but will never use Galaxy.

At least you have a choice to download regular installers, and not be forced to run that crap. Too bad no other store “gets it”.

Not that I'd pre-order...but why the fuck would you do this on Steam and not GOG?

It's not like you have to load another launcher... in fact I don't use GOG Galaxy at all.

Yeah, it definitely needs polish... but looks ok for now. A little dissapointed that all the females are in flat shoes / boots. And yes... I'm stuck in the 80's when chicks dressed like Ho's with stilletos, leather mini skirts, and ratted-out hair.
