Anyone that's saying Stardock is "shady" needs to read the press releases from each side and then reevaluate that assertion. I've seen nothing but professionalism from Stardock and the exact opposite from Paul and Fred.

I don't care about this game, Stardock or Brad Wardell, but it's become very clear that Stardock is going to win big here. Everything that Paul and Fred say is an appeal to emotion while everything Stardock releases *seems to be based on legal fact. The sad part is, this IP is most likely not worth this aggravation for Stardock but they are too far into this mess to turn back.

I remember back when I was outraged that 3dfx pulled this shit on Nvidia. Apparently we've come full circle. Nvidia, I hope you get cucked equally as hard.

Got a link? I don't remember this.

Thats because he is full of shit.
I'll try to find something, but dude, go fuck yourself. I worked at Babbages and was forced to put "Only runs on 3dFx" stickers on all of the 3d games even if they supported OpenGl. It was a paid campaign to undermine the Riva TNT and sell 3dfx cards.
And poor old nvidia never recovered. oh wait
So companies stating patently false facts in their marketing and creating campaigns to undermine competition is ok? I can never figure out if Blues is just made up of trolls or a bunch of idiots.

I could tell PUBG mobile was all bots almost immediately, the bot AI is pretty terrible.

AMD seems to be taking the high road on this one. AMD is getting mostly good press around this and people are questioning who's bankrolling CTS.

"...ways to speed progress for those who enjoy playing less of their new games"

That's about the best summary possible I think.

News Comments > NVIDIA GeForce Partner Program Illegal?
7. Re: NVIDIA GeForce Partner Program Illegal? Mar 10, 2018, 16:22 BIGtrouble77
 
Illegal or not, I hate this shit. When I worked at Babbages in the late 90's I had to put stickers on all of our games that said "Only works with 3dfx". It was complete bullshit... Nvidia, ATI and Matrox cards also worked perfectly fine at the time when using OpenGl.

Nvidia is pulling the same shit that was done to them decades ago. I don't have any patience for it and I'm shocked gamers are so quick to defend this kind of stuff. All these types of programs do is attempt to eliminate competition in a very sleazy, cheap way.

It's a weapon that makes violence easy. Most violent crimes are crimes of passion. When all you have to do is pull a gun and squeeze the trigger it's easy. Not so if you have to get up close and personal. That makes people pause. And that makes all the difference in the world. Couple that with America's poverty, obsession with violent media, hero worship of the military, and the institutional paranoia of seeing enemies everywhere that's a recipe for disaster.
As a dual Canadian/US citizen, I agree wholeheartedly.

"Morality score" makes me laugh every time.

Space wizard centered gamer.
"I personally find the moral issues too much to continue playing with a clean conscience."

Thank the lord I have no such issues of conscience.

Good to see GTAV up there. Happy to see those guys are doing well.
GTAV is the new Skyrim.
Yeah, that's an understatement. I just bought Apocalypse and I'm determined to get into the late game... something I have not been able to do yet. I feel like there's a good game here, but I'm not seeing it. My biggest problem is comparing everything I do to Distant Worlds and end up coming out frustrated.

I don't understand how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got game of the year and not handheld of the year. Not that I think it deserves either.

Link from reddit is the same and the whole site is fubared.
Probably went tit's up due to traffic.
I've seen that article posted everywhere. I don't understand why blog sites aren't published with static content more often. It's trivial to setup one of those static blogging engines... if you publish to S3 then you will never go down.

Stellaris DLC seem to garb a premium over CK2 and EUIV. I don't remember the last time one of those DLC cost $20.

I'm going to have to revisit things when the new release is out. I stopped playing a couple months ago when I got stuck doing an engineering upgrade. Still kind of frustrated with how that whole mechanic works. I need to improve my Anaconda for better jump ranges, but that stupid engineering mini game keeps me questioning if I got an acceptable role or not.
