That's still low and way off from a living wage. Min wage here is $14 and becomes $15 in January. That's only $11.71 US atm. Living wage is $20-$25 US depending where you live, and the same here.

Hey, if you sleep in a cardboard box, technically that's still "living." I hear the funeral homes throw out really nice ones.

Set in an epic world where magic exists but only women can use it.

WTF? Men and women could use channeling, they just had different styles and couldn't teach each other.

Yeah, but the women did all the work to learn to use the magic. The men just lazed about drinking mead and watching football.

I've never read the books, but from what I've read women can use it responsibly, but men get driven insane by using it, so men can technically use it, but by sacrificing their sanity.

Given that the rest is following the reborn Dragon or whathaveyou, sounds like it does have men using magic, just, you know, insanely.

Well the men would say that, sose to have an excuse to drink mead and watch football.

Man I hope the court is on CDPR’s side. “I see you signed this deal here.” “Yeah but that’s because I didn’t think it’d become big!” “So? YOU SIGNED THIS.”

To be fair, Polish copyright law technically allows for this kind of shit. If there is a gross disparity in the benefit one side is getting. Zero clue if that works in practice or not. You'd have to find a Polish lawyer somewhere on the Internet and we all know they are too drunk to find their PCs.

That might have helped a lot of Motown stars in the 60s who were exploited, making almost nothing off their works while the record companies made millions.

If you're a podcast listener, don't read this article. Instead, go download all six episodes of Dr. Death, a great podcast about this topic.

The great USofA is no different. but whatevs.

The only significant difference, and I think it is an important one, is that I cannot be forced to give up a PIN in the States. It is legally protected. In NZ, the law states that you are required to give it up.

In the story you linked, the individual in question voluntarily gave up his access key (in this case, a "passcode" as the article calls it). He was not obligated by statute to do so. The fact that he folded under pressure and did so is irrelevant.


It's a hassle, but just bring a burner. You probably have an old phone you're not using. Wipe it, factory reset it, and don't log in until after you've gone through customs.

This really smells like Early Access Rebirth 2.0 all over again, if a game were finished you wouldn't show a trailer with placeholder art.

I didn't mean that ALL of it was placeholder, there's just some pretty low-res textures here and there. But yeah, I know the humanoids aren't placeholder, they're just going to, AGAIN, be shitty because nobody at Egosoft has apparently ever seen another human being.

Inorganic stuff is pretty straight forward to do in CG, while organic stuff is hard. Just look at movie FX. The creatures all look like cartoons, but the CG rock and water is so good you don't even know it's CG.

One thing I don't understand is why they put additional development effort into being able to walk around space stations and ships. As far as I remember from X Rebirth, the space station gameplay was by far the most hated part of the game. Now in X4 they mentioned being able to stealthily infiltrate stations in order to steal technology. What X fans really care to do this? This is a spaceship sim, not a stealth game. I would have preferred if they got rid of walking around space stations entirely and focused development elsewhere.

Wherein X has gone full "Star Citizen." Bigcry

Finally, even after 15 years, they still haven't hired a single guy who can make a decent humanoid model? I understand it's not the focus of the game, but for fuck's sake, guys. All your races' models look like shit. They have looked like shit since the days of the original X. How can you look at this in 2018 and go "Yeah, that's fine"??

Maybe when SC goes belly up they can buy up and integrate those assets.

New engine and time to work on it says no. I have a really good feeling about this one.

I hope you're right, but it flies in the face of history. Nearly every single one of their games has shipped a buggy mess.

Voted for Firewatch. Been wanting to play that.

SW2 will end up getting the most votes though.

Hey, for all the shit Amazon's been (justifiably) getting lately over their work conditions and abhorrent pay, this is a good move. A lot of their workers essentially just got like a 50% pay raise.

Yeah, at least now they can (a tiny bit) justify treating their workers like shit.

Sony will add in-program shopping to its TVs and Blu-ray players.

I remember when DVD and BRD players started shipping with ethernet connections, and disc manufacturers promised tons of online extras. So I got one, hooked it up, and threw in some new disc I'd just gotten.

The "extra?" An advert that covered most of the main menu for Pamela Anderson's Barb Wire. That was it.

I generally find the "SJW elements" people whine about boil down to "treating women with respect" and "having them wear appropriate apparel for the weather and activities they're partaking in."

Dude, what are you on about? A chainmail bikini would totally protect you in a battle.

Clearly Sapkowski made a mistake back in the day, everybody said it then when the Witcher 1 did well. I wonder how it'll go in Polish court though, I'm not overly familiar with their copyright law or how their courts usually respond to this sort of thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if CDProjekt RED has to pay some amount, even though they are in the moral and originally legal right.

Maybe shakedowns like this work over there? Aka Poland courts are basically like Texas courts for favorable IP scam lawsuits.


Sounds like they're not opposed to giving him some kind of bonus, just not a $16M bonus.
