Being hated pays off for Shkreli: Judge shows pity, grants him separate trial.

And yet the real issue of Big Pharma (here in the US - thank you Canada for the cheap meds btw) stealing from citizens isn't addressed.....

/Not a fan of mary jane, but have been impressed with he use of the oil and extracts in treating some diseases and neurological conditions. Some really cool stuff out there.

Why do you hate capitalism? Are you a commie?

On rails, and I mean SERIOUSLY on rails (again from what I have seen).

Going by some posts here, everyone doesn't seem to share the same definition for an "on rails" game. Some seem to be confusing it with linear.

I've always been under the impression that on rails games means little to often no movement control, sometimes even no option as to where to look or even what direction to face.

Examples such as House Of The Dead, Virtual Cop, etc...

Your point of view is similar to being on the front of a train, with little to no option as to where to go, much like a train, on rails.

"on rails" traditionally refers to shooters where you have no control over your own movement

somehow that has replaced the more accurate term of being "scripted"

Never mind. Covered in a later post.

Games that do it great on rails, Call of Duty single players. They also have some of the best FPS stories you'll ever play.

Shocked Stunned Shocked Stunned Shocked

r u sucking ferious bro???

Hahaha_no Hahaha_no Hahaha_no

Well I will say I haven't played a COD since MW2 so maybe shit has changed horribly but they did a great job having action scenes and actual stories.

Other games with good stories on rails:
Halo, Fear, Bioshock...

Bioshock is more of an FPSRPG than an FPS. But whatever, it's still on rails.

Yeah, the straight up MW SP campaigns are fun, like playing an 80s action movie. BLOPs kind of sucked tho. Not sure why.

Trump will sign executive order to begin revamp of H-1B visa program.

I work with a lot of foreigners at work who are on H1-Bs. They're good hard-working people, so I hope they're not affected.

On the other hand, corporations have been abusing the H1-B at the expense of American workers for a couple decades now, so it has been due for an overhaul for a while.

Lastly, I hope offshoring is regulated next.

And yet, the rise of video games has correlated with the lowest loss of life from war in the history of mankind. I'm not going to claim causation, as it's a complex, multifaceted issue, but there's no evidence that playing violent video games leads to actual violence in even the tiniest fraction of individuals.

That's a weird statistic to pull out. I don't think even anti-video game crusaders are going to claim that video games lead to war.

Nope it's clear video-games = less war. Just look at the places with lots of strife, not as many video-games there are there. Instead of tomahawks and MOABs we could drop copies of Witcher 3 and Xbones on middle easterners. And if Trump abstained from going to Mar-a-Lago for a few weeks we could use the savings to pay for the cost.

It's actually a good idea. And cheap too. How many XBoxes + 10 video games could you get for the cost of a single $100M F-35? 200,000 or so? The rise of video games has also correlated to the massive drop in crime in the US over the past 20 years, esp in the 16-30 cohort. Bored kids have something to do now, and relatively cheaply.

I hope you know that I was being sarcastic?

Not for one second do I believe that nonsense, this is just idiots wanting to lay blame on why people do the stupid shit they do. and Games are an easy target.

Oh, I was totally posting in support of your position.

I don't deny climate change. I welcome it. I roll coal in my Hummer every chance I get because I bought a house 20 miles inland that I expect to be beachfront property when I retire in 30 years.

Wouldn't that just mean in < 31 years your house will be underwater?

I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. And it will be a pontoon bridge, so it can rise with the tide. Also, basements are overrated. Lastly, that's why God invented sandbags. Postscript: I bought on a hilltop, so at first I'll have to walk down to the beach, but after a few years, it will be right out my back door. Sunny

Blakemore has been working on his game since 1997 and actually ran its first beta test in 1998: If you'd had a baby the same day you played the beta, she would now be pestering you for the keys to the car.

My daughter was born in November of 1997, she's not only gotten her license and keys to her car, she's already rolled it and now working two jobs to get it fixed. Now that she's gotten beyond her 'wrap the Camaro around a telephone pole' right-of-passage without getting herself killed, she'll probably be interested in this game. She's a major RPG nut...

=-Rigs-=

Well, at 600 hours of gameplay, you could rest assured not only would she be not wrapping her Camaro around a telephone pole, but also that she'd be not out getting pregnant. Win-win. Just don't let her see Skyrim Enhanced Edition before she plays this.

I watched the youtube video thinking there was going to be a joke. But it wasn't. It's a real game. I didn't know what to think.

*Reaches down, takes ball and goes home.

I'm just curious if you've been paying attention to gaming over the past 5 years. Retro games have been extremely popular selling millions of copies and receiving tons of accolades: Terraria, Shovel Knight, Rogue Legacy, FTL, Hotline Miami, Retro City Rampage, Fez, Gunpoint, Spelunky, BroForce, TowerFall, Legend of Grimrock, Hammerwatch, etc. etc. One of the great things about these games is that not only are their graphics and gameplay old school, but their business model is as well:
1) They're complete, whole, finished, standalone games.
2) They're moddable
3) No microtransactions, paywalls, or bullshit free-to-play financing models
4) They can contain levels of innovation not found in AAA games.

Any one of the aforementioned games could have easily come out for PC in the mid-90s. Yet here we are.

I assume Tencent will kick butt in China and have a much smaller impact in the US and Europe. But over time they might/could be an actual competitor...

Not sure I want to have games on a system owned by a country the US may find itself at war with in the South China Sea in a few years.

Oh shit, Tencent owns Kim Kardashian: Hollywood??! I guess I WILL be buying games on their system.

It's not Amazon, it's TenCent. We'll see how it turns out.

If we get essentially an Asian Steam, will we get the games for cheap and they pay full price?

Once you go Asian, you never go back?

CNN is right about the video looking like a fps game. And plenty of the leaked video footage from the war in Afghanistan and Iraq look like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Arts imitating life imitating arts imitating...

GoPros make it possible. Here's a US soldier in Afghanistan suppressing Taliban with his M249 while A-10s make strafing runs. No enemy appears on screen, but it sure looks like CoD/BF.
