This is what eroded trust looks like and is the bottom rungs of any business. When people get to this level of angry, EA has lost far more than they would have gained with microtransactions. They should've focused on a really fun game and let the game sell itself.
I'll agree with that. But they're probably doing the calcs that show they can make twice as much with dumbasses buying DLC and MTs, so they monetize the shit out of the game, which makes a worse game of course. But they know a crack addict will still snort his crack if it's cut with Borax, so they cut with Borax.
I'm pretty sure if EA doesn't handle their stuff Disney is going to move their Star Wars IP elsewhere.
They can try. Who else is going to make them the money that EA does? Activision, maybe, but that's a big maybe. Ubi? Please.

In my dreams, Ken Levine makes a Star Wars game.

This was retweeted by the Pentagon.
The solution is simple...
Roy Moore: Step down from the race.
Al Franken: Resign from congress.
Donald Trump: Resign from the presidency.
GOP: Stop making sexual assault a partisan issue. Itís a crime as is your hypocrisy.
That's what I call a Fair Trade.
We the people accept that casualty.

Nobody gives half a flying fuck about Canada though. It could literally disappear from the map tomorrow morning and nobody would notice for a while. At some point, retards would start wondering what kind of socks Troudeau is wearing today, I guess, then word would get around that Canada is missing.

Hey! Don't talk about the 51st state that way! Governor Trudeau is a good man!

I will tell you now, that shipping from Wal-Mart fucking SUCKS.

Also make sure to use Blue's link on the front page for Amazon!

It's... It's as if you have a vested interest in steering people to Amazon or something. Is Jeff Bezos a blood relative?

This happened while he was a comedian, they do comedic things. That's why it's called comedy.

Yeah, I get that, as a comedian you have to take chances, and if the photo was the only thing that there was, it might be explainable. But the story told by the woman is more disturbing.

None of the cities. Global warming is a hoax.

You're mom is a hoax!

He's so smart and articulate, that I assumed he'd run for pres one day. Not anymore. He may not resign, but he's done. Really bad judgement there, and at a time in his life when you're supposed to have learned a thing or two and not do stupid shit like that. He wasn't 20 when that happened. That photo is bad, but the story is worse, as it's suggestive of power abuse.

Et tu, Al?

Trophies from elephant hunts in Zimbabwe were banned in the U.S. Trump just reversed that.

Meh, who needs elephants anyways. Grotesque lumbering monstrosities.

Man the sexual harassment apocalypse continues. This time it's Al Franken.

Shit, that's a bummer. WTF, Al??? He does good work otherwise. Surprised it came so late in his career, as i mentioned before, I would have assumed there'd be skeletons there from when he worked at SNL.

FCC Plans December Vote to Kill Net Neutrality Rules.

Cool! Neutrality is for losers anyway. Switzerland has been neutral all these years and what has it ever done for them?

Our political system is in need of an overhaul. We've got to get corporate money out of our decision making systems.

That's a bummer. I have a Toshiba TV that's the best TV I've ever owned. It's 11 years old and still looks and works the same as the day I brought it home.

Already experienced Walmart's pricing strategy looking for a heated throw for my sister-in-law. $27 online, $20 in-store. Got lucky this time, since I hadn't bought it yet. I'll end up buying more from Amazon now, though, since I compare prices online before ever considering getting in the car and going shopping.

This was my thought. Are they crazy? I never order from Walmart anyway, and try to avoid their stores like the plague (unless I'm desperate. There's one next to my office). But I were to encounter this situation, I'd just got to Amazon or Target.com.

"Fisker's solid-state batteries have a long way to go before they make it into a car" - yep figured.

Lots of news over the years on massive battery breakthroughs beyond what is available today... will one ever come through?

"Will it come through?" is the wrong question.

"Will I be alive to see it?" is the correct one.

I feel like if we just commit to reducing the population of the planet by 80% we'll be ok.
I won't say it is likely, but it could happen. Virus, nuclear war, lack of drinkable water... take your pick...

The secret to population reduction is wealth and education. Just look at Japan...

Food production trends are looking quite bleak as well.

Saw Thor Ragnarok last weekend with the fam, and it was freakin' awesome. I just wish I hadn't watched the trailer first.
Speaking of Thor, if you haven't seen some of Taika Waititi's other movies, give them a go: Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. Both are just so excellent.

How hot was Cate Blanchett, commanding performance as usual but how smoking was Cate.
just saw it, she was the bomb.
Movie had all the best parts of guardians of the galaxy, lord of the rings and star wars, it kept me solidly entertained for 2 hours.

What a stellar cast but like jdreyer said, wish i had not seen the trailer.

IMO Tessa Thompson stole the show (along with Korg! (played by the director himself!)). Minor nitpick: Why is the fucking God of Thunder so weak against electro-shock traps and devices???

Anyway, if you're looking for a good time this weekend, this is your ticket. Take your GF/Wife, she'll have a blast.

Also, the movie is dense enough that multiple viewings will be amply rewarded.

"roguelike"...DRINK!

At least you can get a lot of variety out of the Rogue-like framework. Two of my favorite games are FTL and Darkest Dungeon, both rogue-likes, both very different.

Much worse is the spate of MOBAs we keep getting that change very little from the classic DOTA formula.
