A single market is economically efficient - vendors don't need to worry about rules and regulations for 28 different nations - but the fact that these countries are still in some ways so disparate leaves some issues.Bodolza wrote on Apr 5, 2019, 15:01:Beamer wrote on Apr 5, 2019, 13:43:
There's no reason, except that some countries average $85,000 per year for a family of four, and other countries, with the same currency, average $25,000.
And because they're part of the EU, those families are free to move and work in those other countries if they want the higher salary. Of course the cost of living will also be higher, so it might not be worth it, but they have the freedom to choose where they live and work.
So everything except video games is allowed to be adjusted for the local economy?

you never actually buy a game from Paradox, they constantly output dlc that you need to buy to keep current. Makes me hesitant to purchase any of their games.
You don't have to buy it. It's not required to enjoy the game (unless you are the type of person who wants additional items/challenges) or pretty much any case required to complete it. The free patches keep it current; these add-ons are "nice to haves."
HorrorScope wrote on Jun 28, 2018, 19:38:Agreed. Zenimax has always come off as petty, like they just want to be a tollkeeper for their own benefit.
Not that I have love for either, but something about zenimax rubs me wrong. If you equate Oculus to Facebook, yes things about Facebook rub me wrong to, doesn't change my mind about zenimax.
As for the hardship, that'b on the buyers who have some protections left, hold on to them with both hands, things are gonna get bumpy.
Tipsy McStagger wrote on Jun 27, 2018, 12:55:Yeah. It's hard to fault Epic here. They did everything right: they made a F2P game with purely cosmetic microtransactions, and there's not loot boxes/gambling.Darks wrote on Jun 27, 2018, 12:49:
This is actually disgusting that people throw away their money so easily on virtual items. This was very obvious at E3 on how much Swag and all the free food they were giving away.
Especially the Freshly made Chocolate Chip cookies they were baking on site thought out the entire E3 experience.
You know what they say about a fool and their money.
No sign of the ending of those micro transactions in sight. I don't have any beef with cosmetic items though so at least good on fortnite for that.

Played the games back in the day. They weren't my cup of tea. One Must Fall 2097 was a much better game with Jazz in it. Also, why the hell aren't there more Fighting games with RPG elements like OMF 2097?? That's the way to bring them to the mainstream.
Task wrote on May 7, 2018, 14:47:You really needed a gamepad to get the most of it. And not many people owned those for PCs back in the day.
I remember Jazz and I remember not enjoying it. But hey, game preservation on the other hand is a good thing.

The answer is no, and sod off
Mordecai Walfish wrote on Apr 11, 2018, 11:48:True, that's always an option. Though I was also thinking something more along the lines of full, modern PC resolution. The PSP was cutting for its time, but it was still a tiny HVGA/sHD display.ViRGE wrote on Apr 11, 2018, 04:43:
If anything it makes me want a modern PC port of the PSP remake. They did a really good job bringing X1 to 2.5D with that game.
PPSSPP is your friend =) great emulator and sometimes I will take my save file from the psp itself and just continue games on there if i'm at home.
Beamer wrote on Mar 10, 2018, 13:11:Aye. That and the fact that it didn't premiere in time for Halloween really bummed me on the show. It's not even something I'm terribly interested in watching at this time of the year.
Season 2 ended so poorly. Shame they had so many creative issues behind the scenes and the producers borked the landing.

That's a nice grid to lay it all out.
540P though? That's a number born from, who the hell knows.
I like the grid. As for the 540p, did somebody slice a 1080p in half?
