The only real solution is to make India (which has bucketloads of desperately poor and is infinitely more Western-friendly) the new manufacturing center of the world.
Until indian workers are fed up with exploitation and start to demand higher wages and better working conditions. Outsourcing is NOT a very lasting solution

Right now, the asian bucket is the Phillipines. Chinese companies migrated there, because Vietnam is getting too expensive. China itself was getting too expensive for cheap products years ago. Chinese workers are making increasingly more money, are better educated. The days of churning out cheap mass production are over. China is becoming more and more like Europe or the USA.

Well, I still hope that they are working on X4 and make it more like X3. None of that Rebirth crap. X Rebirth was and still is pretty bad. I've played it a couple of months ago because I heard they patched a lot of things. Did a clean start. There were so many bugs within the first hour of playing that I quit immediately. This is just terrible.

But if they manage to make a X4 that is like the other X games I am willing to look the other way.
I know a few people inside of Koch Media. Rebirth is an episode they rather want to forget than asked about.

Rebirth was the result of a botched salvage operation. Egosoft wasted a LOT of publisher money and years on a console version, never got it right in terms of gameplay and technology. Koch Media finally pulled the plug, demanded a finished game and forced an external producer on the project. According to internal sources, this producer wasnt very competent, but very arrogant & bullish with the mindset of a testosteron driven college frat boy. The console prototype was remade as a PC product, all bad design descisions from the prototype were kept and new bad ones added.

But even a good, competent producer couldnt fix this pile of crap. The Rebirth prototype was destined to be scrapped entirely, all spent money to be wrote off, BUT NOT "fixed" and made into a full blown game.

I honestly thought it was a neat program.
It was actually, until NVidia decided to hammer some stupid obligatory account registration into the program.

Interesting history recap. He seems like a pretty cool/humble guy.
He is. The time at Ion Storm was a learning experience for him.

He has a site, a flourishing YT channel and years of gaming journalism experience.
He did not have a flourishing YT channel, he has a flourishing Patreon account. Youtube is just the place where he dumps his videos, he does not make any cent from that. He makes his living through Patreon contributions.

One thing the Romines are getting wrong ALL THE TIME

So they have the right to sue anyone ...
They do. They do have the right to sue anyone for any reason they can think of. They do not have the right to force a judge to make a case out of every lawsuit they file. There has to be at least "something" valid to even acknowledge that there MIGHT be a case.

Of course still no complete edition of Bioshock Infinite for the PC. <asshats> Biting
Why should there be one? The Infinite Remastered brings only the console versions up to the already existing PC standard.

Wasn't it patched up years later into something decent? I thought I read that somewhere...
There is a fan patch, but as far as fan patches can go without access to the code ... the game's still a mess.

Well, there's Runic. They made Torchlight with Diablo alumni and former Blizz employees. Pretty successful project.
Runic was founded by people who jumped the Flagship before it sank.

Remember the last studio, founded by dev celebrities departing from Blizzard, being richly funded from the start without having a proper project?

Ahh, yes, Flagship Studios! Oh boy, those were funny days

Your entire post history is angry nerd rage wharrgarbl. You lost credibility years ago and most people here pity you.
Him being most of the time some angry bitter dude does NOT invalidate his critic of Microsofts abysmal policy of shutting down and neglecting services, rendering purchases no longer usable.

Its not only games. Remember "Plays for sure"? Microsofts DRM for Music downloads? One day they simply canceled the service and all music which had this DRM incorporated did no longer played for sure.

There is a valid reason people get upset with MS regarding these topics: MS simply has a TERRIBLE track record.

You and most people already showed them you'll take it up the ass, MMO's then steam, then origin, then uplay. Did gamers stop buying these games? Nope. Did they rationalise the trampling of their rights? Yep.
By throwing everything together you create no argument, but a steaming pile of ...

The connectivity to other players is essential for an MMO. There is no MMO without connectivity, the connectivity creates the MMO.

Steam offers much added value to soften it's weak DRM. Still, i dont buy full price, only low sale prices.

Origin and uPlay do NOT offer more or better value than Steam, so both clients are getting well deserved flak. They are useless.

Mandatory accounts for Geforce experience do offer what to players? Gifts and raffles? Colored glass shards and booze? Blankets with smallpox?

Woah, I need confirmation on this. You can't use Shadowplay offline? That would be a killer for me. Holding off till I hear more.
You actually need a Nvidia account, Google or Facebook login to use Geforce Experience. A login is mandatory. If you do not register one of these accounts with Geforce Experience, you CANNOT use its features.

I just uninstalled this piece of crap.

The devs never fixed it because there "was no money", ...
THQ had no interest in supporting TQIT, the studio itself wasnt allowed to fix the addon.


So you'll forgive me for not spending another dime on their promises.
Understandable. But ... its gone, its fixed now. Go, download a copy and try it yourself.

I'm guessing this is more for the console crowd than anything?
Well ... there are enough PC players who would like to have an updated version of Bioshock 1/2 with proper widescreen/FOV support without config fiddling AND without constant crashes on modern Windows OS. 1 & 2 may run well on a Win 8/10 machine ... or not. I had troubles during a replay of Bioshock 2, especially with the Minerva addon.
