Does this mean they can reacquire rights to Quake Wars and restart its development?

'cuz that was a much much better game. Better-looking, too.

Speaking of Quake Wars, is that available anywhere?

I played this at PAX East last year in Boston. Was really fun. Developer that was at the booth was really cool dude also.

Yeah, I wish the graphics were more up to date.

I'll def buy once it's not GOG exclusive.

Huh, most people going the other way these days and buying more from GoG. What's your beef with GoG?

When I was a boy, we didn't have BF single player campaigns. Instead, every map had bots. That's the way it was, and we liked it!

Telling a story is perfectly fine. But you can't make them a hero.

What about telling a story where you are not the hero? Would that be OKAY?

I think you call that a "Telltale game"

Does Rockstar have to make apologies or clarifications for each Grand Theft Auto villain protagonist that sees you committimg what are very often vile crimes? No? So why then does DICE have to nervously explain themselves and shy away from using the word 'Nazi' in their game? Lean into that shit - playing as a Nazi could be very interesting.

In fairness, most GTA villians haven't committed genocide, so there's that.

Battlefield single player campaigns... lol!

An alternate history WWII game would have been so much better, oh well. I'll probably still end up getting BFV eventually.

We have alternate history WW2 games. They're called "Wolfenstein"

Got over 200 hours in this game making it my top game in Steam. The mods are amazing, and I look forward to whatever Tynan does next.

I heard that the next thing he's going to do is hire an artist.

BADUM-PSSHHH! Drummer

Fair enough. Glad to see an occasional white collar crime prosecution. I feel that the investigations into Trump's finances are showing us that many, many such crimes go unpunished.

The rich fuckers could afford good lawyers. The engineer couldn't. Case closed.

I'd be all for actually funding a much larger and well-paid public defender corp, and prohibiting private lawyers in criminal cases. Would really even things out, IMO.

The CIO was indicted for insider trading. He could afford a great attorney.

Also, he sold two weeks after the other C-level execs. With the email chain, he sold immediately upon learning they leak likely happened. Unless you think that the CEO and President knew about the leak before the CIO did, those wouldn't have been with the inside knowledge. And those sales weren't really bigger than the sales those same officers did in other years. John Gamble, the CFO, famously sold 6,500 shares on August 2nd. He also sold 14,000 in May, months before the hack was discovered. He sold 2,600 in February. Given that we have emails that show when the CIO discovered it, and we know he sold, and we know he's going to jail, I'm decently assured that's when the entire c-suite found out.

Oh you naive COO. It doesn't matter if you don't want to, the mob will force you to.

Many creative projects (software, games, etc.) clearly represent the politics and bias of their creators in some form. That's normal and it's perfectly fine. In fact, it's so common in non-entertainment software there's a law for it, "Conway's Law":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_law

In short, software projects frequently reflect the organizations that produce them.

Sure, a game like pong or something along those lines is arguably "apolitical", but as soon as you involve any sufficient amount of artwork or writing, politics are definitely involved, and the work represents that.

Exactly. Take Microsoft for example. Everything is blue by default. Thus you know they're liberal. Facebook, blue logo, liberal. Yahoo, purple logo, which makes sense: most of the people who work there are liberal, but the CEO ran for prez on the GOP ticket. Google, rainbow logo, VERY liberal. Etc, etc.

Totally making all this shit up, too.

I played it about a year ago, and really enjoyed it. I put in 40 hours and got about halfway "finished." It ran fine on my 9 year old laptop.

Not sure I want to try again though. 40 hours is a lot of time...

Gibson Recliner - Canyon color.

Didn't go for power but I did upgrade to memory foam and a swivel base on it - so I can spin around like Dr. Evil. Got 5% off on a sctach and save and the guy actually bumped it up to 10 points. So everything said it done I got it for $1169. I'm gonna' sit and power nap the shit out this thing!

Dunno cause it looks like I just finalized the sale of my new ride - fucking finally - as well. So, I just talked to the broshack and it looks like we'll be doing our road trip to the US first weekend of November. Probably heading down to Cleveland first off and catch the Browns v. Chiefs at the Dog Pound. Gonna' see what other games are going on. He'd like to head up to Milwaukee to see the baseball game - no idea about what's going on in baseball. And if that's the case we'll either go to Green Bay or Chi-town for football. Indianapolis is a possibility too. Never been there. Considered the Steelers but we've both been through Pittsburgh a few times.

Just be sure to bring a burner phone for the border.

Also, if they legalized cannabis in my country, not sure I'd leave for a few years. Beatnik
