Oh shit, they are finally bringing in the M32 Grenade Launcher!
The new weapons sound good, but I may be getting KF2'd out, I have over 350hours played according to Steam. Game fatigue setting in.
Also, the game has slowly been growing in size as they keep adding new official maps, closer to 50gigs now, I think... it's becoming harder and harder as all new games balloon in size as well, to keep KF2 installed for occasional sessions.

Why the hell are they concerned with Steam, when you can just type porn in google and you immediately get hardcore porn.
Because TRIGGERED! Duh!
It's because the conservative Bible-thumpers still think only children play video games, when the average gamer's age is closer to 40 than not.

Amongst all the mature, intelligent adults I know porn most certainly does not have a negative stigma attached to it. The only people it has a negative stigma with are dumb religious kook types and hardcore feminazis. And there's no such thing as "porn" anymore. There's every kind of adult entertainment for every sort of taste under the sun now. Most people I know don't really care for the industry standard 'yeah baby' porn anyway. If you have a fetish for it, it's out there. There's nothing abnormal or wrong with it, it's just a different sort of kink.
You only live once, so get your freak on and enjoy it.

And then eventually they'll sell sex toys, and then regular toys, and then home appliances!!~~~ Where will it end?!
Nobody buys porn movies anymore you old fart Lots of unwashed weebs to buy porn visual novels, however.

Are you a developer? Is that why your putting this philosophical view forward? The laws of supply and demand don't ask the question of whether anything is "sustainable". The laws of supply and demand aren't moral laws that ensure justice or "equality" always prevail.
Wraith wrote on Aug 11, 2018, 16:13:I guess I am stupid. Please explain.
The media you buy a game on is just media and in the case of a CD, that media is worth less than a dollar.
When you buy a game you're paying for the experience. You can't then finish the game and turn around and sell that experience to someone else. That's copyright infringement and it's theft.
Let me see if I can make it clearer. If you buy a game, finish it and then sell it to a chain of 10 friends who each buy it and sell it in turn, then 10 people have played the game.
However the development team only gets credit for 1 copy. Nobody gives a shit about the publishers, but the used game market fucks over the development teams. These teams get paid based on royalties, but the used game market steals royalties.
Does Gamesteal really deserve to resell a game 10 times? Really? Do you think that kind of thing is sustainable.
Like I said, the nuances of this argument are too complex for most people because people are stupid. Over the long term this activity results in developers getting screwed.
But, of course, who gives a shit when you can get a game for $10 off!

The used game market is theft, pure and simple. The problem is, most people are too stupid to understand this.

Yeah, this is pretty ridiculous.
They're trying to "stretch" the law (or at least USSC precedent) with a creative interpretation. And they're banking on the fact that most resellers are so small that they aren't willing to litigate the question. It's the epitome of sleazy...

Oh yeah! This is really good news for Mr. Tact and NKD.
"Hotel Influenza" would be like "FREE" money for both of them. Cuz that shit is all based on science. And we all know how dope science is, right? They've had 63 years now to perfect these "flu" vaccines. It's gotta be nearing perfection now. And since they both have a "very basic understanding" of how these things work, what could go wrong, say, 5, 10, or 15 years down the road? Nothing. I'd actually be very disappointed if they don't take full advantage of this opportunity.
If vaccines lead us to the same pots of gold that we found at the end of the anti-biotics and pesticides era's, it's not going to end well. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, right. Why worry about it today?
