Wait.... so they didn't have a plan for any content additions post release? So, they made this game as it is and thought "yes, that's complete, no additions necessary!" ?

Maybe they went old-school: make a game, see how it sells, if it sells a lot, you make DLC.

I wish more people would invest the time needed to just "dig" into the hardware...

I wish more manufacturers would stop epoxying everything in a monolithic block that makes hardware modding impossible for the normal, DIY tinkerer.

But we live in a society of disposable technology so it is what it is.

Speak the truth, brother.

Technically, central Illinois is earthquake territory too. We are endangered by the New Madrid fault, which is also not well known to the general public. Saw a tv show where they talked about accounts of a quake on this fault in the early 1800s. A similar quake now would certainly cause deaths, possibly on a large scale -- and would definitely cause many billions of dollars in damage since very few buildings are built to earthquake building codes.

Is there any fracking going on around where you live?

Blezinski is great at game mechanics but he absolutely sucks at creating interesting worlds and characters. Every one of his games star boring, generic, edgy, beefy dudebros and his themes are dull, run of the mill milquetoast. He needs to let others build the world's and the characters. He is a perpetual 12 year old boy who makes games for 12 year old boys.
Out of curiosity, what did you have in mind?

Arsenic has similar molecular properties. I wonder if it could be a substitute. Although, I imagine it's more rare than P.

Also... I guess no repeat for Sergio at The Masters after shooting a 13 on the par 5 15th hole. He put five balls into the water, one from about 206 yds out and then four more from the drop zone/area.

Huh, was he drunk?

Farmer Plays Game About Farming As An Escape From His Farming Life…

It's not that strange. Soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan play Call of Duty to unwind, for example. You'd think they'd play Stardew Valley or something.

Women Earn Significantly Less Money Than Men At Rockstar North, Among Other Gaming Companies…

That's the story about women in every industry, sadly. I wonder if forcing companies to make salaries public knowledge would solve this problem.

NY State Says Charter Lied About Meeting Merger Conditions.

In other words, the PSC is accusing Charter of lying about deployments to pretend that it had met merger conditions. And the PSC says it's contemplating either a major fine or revoking Charter's New York City franchise agreement entirely

Man, I hope they yank the whole fucking franchise over this. They were fined $13M, but they are with $100B, so who the fuck cares. But to lose the franchise would get their attn.

Looks like Trump and his court might make it so we all pay more taxes and bring about far more regulations and problems for internet sellers who don't have a physical presence in each state. Thought this was the party of low taxes and regulation? Guess only if it's a company who isn't writing unflattering stories about the child in the White House.

Trump isn't an ideologue. He only cares if you cross him, then he'll go after you. Or he cares if he's seen something on Fox in the last 24 hours that upset him. As for Repubs in the house and senate, they're along for the ride because Trump will sign their shit if they play nice.

It's funny, because there are actual serious issues with Amazon's business model, just not the ones Trump is going after them for.

If you're going to spend a zillion dollars making something, you aren't going to add the extra risk of doing something no ones ever heard of.
Game of Thrones says "Hi."

That said, I'm still holding out hope that someone will give a World of Darkness TV series another shot some day. Kindred: The Embraced was pretty decent for its time. You could do something much much better today.
Exactly.

Amazon's "Lord of the Rings" To Run Five Seasons.

I love a good fantasy romp as much as the next guy, but there are so many undeveloped properties out there. Why this one again?

Name value, obviously. Sure there are a ton of properties out there, but the LotR name is almost guaranteed to succeed.

In any case, LotR on Amazon, Witcher on Netflix. Please let both be awesome so we have two amazing shows to watch after GoT is done.

if it is what i think it is, it'll be worth it. Tolkien wrote an epic prequel to lotr called The Silmarillion that is singularly the most creative piece of fiction i've ever read and i've been dying for a long form performance version since i first read it. if you've never read it and you're a scifi/fantasy devotee like me, you owe it to yourself to read it.

I read it 30 years ago, and I don't remember much of it, just that I remember it being boring compared to LotR and the Hobbit.

Over 3.5 million dayz'ers, but very few playing (2.2k daily average). That early access money is gonna do wonders for the engine needed for console development, thanks for all the fishes.

People have been playing iterations of this game for 7 years or so. They really dropped the ball not getting the standalone version out in a reasonable amount of time, say 2-3 years.

And about 32 million, down the drain, oops...

It's a shame they didn't spend an extra $50K building AI into the game. I probably would have bought it, being a big fan of the UT franchise. Still, the lack of vehicles is a big miss.
