Cyber cafes are still a thing?
In Asia? Absolutely. Elsewhere? Not really. In the UK there's a brand called Game that has gaming arenas attached to some stores that are setup with a PC, XB1 and PS4 and you can choose which system and games you play on them. I don't know whether they have Steam accounts but I'd think it's probably quite likely. They're not really your traditional cyber cafe though.

Do you even know what a communist is? Because it seems very clear from your post that you don't. Even Bernie Sanders, who is about as left-wing as you'll see in the US, is actually a socialist and pretty moderate one at that.

Where do you see calls by US politicians to end inheritance? That's one of the greatest inequalities of capitalism yet the only policies one can observe are the removal of restrictions. Where do you see calls for the nationalisation of public services like energy companies and public transport? Nowhere. Where do you see calls for the end to property rights and the introduction of free housing to all? Nowhere. Where do you see calls for workers to own the means of production? Nowhere.

The only politics in America is right-wing capitalism, extreme right-wing capitalism and fascism. Your talking points are straight from the Cold War propaganda handbook and utterly detatched from reality.

CIG has already accomplished more than you have ever done in your life and clearly the community is behind that vision. If you want to find something better to do with your time you could try dangling your testicles in a blender - I'm sure that's something most of us here could get behind.

Valve makes an absolute killing from Steam. It should have simply paid the fine and adjusted its policies than attempt to contest every imaginable point just for the sake of it.

It's sad so see Valve go from darling of the PC gaming world to a stagnating wasteland full of asset flips with appalling visibility on the frontpage. It Valve wants any credibility it should jettison all the low quality, low effort titles and focus on highlighting quality titles. Most of the Steam games I get these days are from other websites like Humble Bundle. And dear god, update the fucking client - it's appallingly outdated.

Make Half-Life 3 a SteamOS exclusive. Problem solved.
A better idea would be to make Half-Life 3 free on SteamOS / with Steam Machines and available at a cost for Windows users. That way those that are motivated by cost can have it for free and experience SteamOS whilst those not interested can simply buy it. Another option would be to release an updated Steam Controller and bundle Half-Life 3 with it, which would get the controller into millions of people's hands.

Half-Life 3 could be used by Valve to get SteamOS into most homes just like Half-Life did with Steam itself but Valve is so utterly inept at following through with game development that it probably won't ever happen. All it does these days is copy Blizzard, with games like Dota 2 and Artifact.

It is silencing activism against the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

An example of the things Companies should not have the ability to do.
I'm just waiting for the EU's GDPR to go into effect so I can request all data be permanently deleted and have that be legally binding. It will also guarantee that Facebook provides all data it holds you, as currently it can claim it does without any legislation to compe it to do so.

Facebook went from being a useful method to keep in touch with friends and family to be a parasitic marketing tool used to manipulate people and silence political discussion by placing users in echo chambers. I've already uninstalled the client and moved to Messenger Lite to avoid the egregious advertising introduced to the main client. I honestly don't miss it at all.

Sooo...
Does this Star Citizen update run faster than 5 frames per second? Dare I download 50 GB to find out?
I get about 40fps on average, with fresh servers running over 60fps+. Performance has definitely improved but there are too many bugs affecting core gameplay for the game to be enjoyable at this stage.

For me the 3.3 and 3.4 releases due Q3 and Q4 are the most interesting. They will bring planets, object container streaming, bind culling, server multithreading improvements and server meshing. That means major performance gains and a massively increased playercount. Just be prepared for some of those big-ticket items to be pushed back to later releases, as they are extremely complex.

Indeed. Viewing a slightly higher quality image shouldn't require an account for an entirely unrelated site. Bizarre.

As for AMD, it's a clever move to push FreeSync into consoles because that will create a demand for FreeSync TVs and undermine nVidia's proprietary G-SYNC. The current situation on PC is pathetic, where you have to base your monitor selection on your graphics card to have adaptive sync.

I'm more concerned about the fact that they're already advertising the Season Pass content BEFORE THE GAME HAS LAUNCHED.

How is this not a big deal to people? They're openly telling people who haven't even played the game yet that to experience everything they have to plonk down another $50.
To be honest the Season Pass content never matches the original content, so I don't worry about it. I act as if it doesn't exist and just wait for the base game to be discounted to a price I find acceptable.

It's funny how Trump is so concerned with violent videogames and not the fact that firearms are freely available. Other countries have violent videogames without having mass shootings; the thing they have in common is sensible gun control. It's almost like he's pandering to his voter base rather than concerned about effective governance.

I am thankful the Tangerine Mussolini is not in charge of my country.

As the budget grew, we began a long series of conversations with potential publishing partners.

So they thought they could pull a Chris Roberts here. Jesus Christ, this isn't rocket surgery.
That's literally the exact opposite of what happened with Star Citizen. Chris Roberts had investors lined up and the Kickstarter was to demonstrate interest in the game. When the funding overperformed they dropped all other investors and went entirely community funded.

With the System Shock remake they surpassed their target and then decided to change from a remaster to a a new game, then shackled themselves to a publisher because they didn't have enough funds for that. That's pretty sleazy.

Beamer wrote on Feb 4, 2018, 10:44:
She was 15. She did not consent because she was too young. If you disagree, where do you personally draw the line?
She did consent, it's just that the law doesn't recognise that consent because of her age. Really the determination should be made on an individual basis, rather than applying blanket age restrictions. A girl who goes out of her way to conceal her age and prostitute herself should be deemed to have granted consent. We're not talking about someone pressured into prostitution here - it's a website that she registered for and she went into it knowing the consequences of her actions.

Let's be realistic here. Fourteen and fifteen years olds commonly engage in sex and in many cultures the age of consent is much lower. I don't have an issue with consensual sex where both parties are considered to be able to offer consent. The issue I have is psychological manipulation and coersion, which should not be tolerated. I find the idea repugnant of ruining this man's livelihood and reputation because he engaged in consensual sex with a girl who sought out sex and went to lengths to conceal her age.

Holy crap the victim blaming...


There's a pretty simple way to avoid these kind of situations. If you think you need to ask a young woman her age (or proof thereof) then SHE'S TOO YOUNG. Even if she turns out to be "legal".

But when you're looking to pay through a Sugar Daddy / Sugar Baby website for a hookup there are probably other issues going on (with the john). Rather than looking into her background (wtf? blame the victim more). Look into the fact that he was a middle aged man looking to push the edge of the envelope and obviously didn't care about her real age so long as she told him it was ok.

It might not be clinical pedophilia but it was certainly some form of exploitation.

If anything this is another example of why prostitution should be legalized and controlled - for the health and benefit of both parties.
The matter is rather simple for me: both parties consented to sex, therefore there shouldn't be an issue. She lied about her age but clearly knew what she was doing. The only real fault I see is that he filmed the sex against her consent but it really depends on the context (what pressure was applied, etc) - it's also her word against his. I'm not really in a position to judge either of them without knowing a lot more details.

I see capitalism as the greater issue, with people pressured into activities and behaviours they would otherwise reject in order to meet essential needs. Without capitalism prostitution would just be consensual sex. Should we really be proud of a society that compels so many young people to have sex with older, wealthy individuals for money? If you browse any online dating websites they're filled with people offering sex for money or clothes. If society provided one's basic needs (accommodation, energy, healthcare, clothes, food, etc) it would largely eliminate the demand for sugar daddy relationships.

For now the simplest option is to legalise and regulate prostitution. Take it out of the shadows and accept it for what it is. It's not going to go away.

Yeah, including fucking FC3 in their season pass is like a creative declaration of bankruptcy.

I'm generally about as anti-season pass as it gets but if you gotta have a season pass then why not, you know, expand on the game it is related to? What a concept!
Exactly. The people most likely to buy the season pass are those who have played the previous games, making it utterly redundant. Perhaps if it was heavily enhanced and included substantial new content it could be somewhat understandable but Far Cry 3 is hardly that old and the engine holds up well. I'd be more interested in the original Far Cry and Far Cry 2 being remastered, as they're quite a bit older now.

Season passes are just being just to pad out preorder sales. They're not about improving the game. They're just about cashing in on the initial buzz and excitement. The price of the FC5 Season Pass is ludicrous and the content woefully lacking.

PS - Did anyone check out the specs for running it at 4K? It lists GTX 1080 in SLI or Vega 56 in Crossfire. Pretty extreme.

What prof do you have that either the lawsuit was in bad faith (Chris Roberts breaking a contract, like he has in the past is bad faith) or that Crytek is in a dire financial position?
Proof? None. Evidence? Crytek is in financial difficulty and desperate for money; the claims don't stand up to scrutiny; legal experts have concluded as much; the GLA was concealed, which debunks most of Crytek's claims.

Kosumo wrote on Jan 31, 2018, 18:45:
You have that wrong, the GLA states no such thing, you are seeing it that way so as to defend your view that the lawsuit is fibolous (not good).

The GLA state that CIG should include the CryEngine and Crytek trademarks due to the fact that the contract is for CIG to use the CryEngine EXCUSIVLY .... which CIG as now broken by switching engines. There was never going to be a time where Crytek was hoping to have there logos displayed on an engine that was not theirs as that was never going to happen under the GLA.

It's not a sensible interpretation and is not the way that the contract will be interpreted - it's just the way that Chris Roberts cultist are trying to view it to stop their little minds from going snap.
Actually, it's the way non-partisan legal attorneys interpret it. CIG was granted an exclusive RIGHT to use the engine, not an obligation.

Kosumo wrote on Jan 31, 2018, 18:45:
I believe that Chris Roberts has set up over 17 diffident companies as part of this games development, and that all of them, due to the same company directors and same business operations will be found to be in effect, one and the same.

If RSI is diffirent than CIG, how has it had the right to be disrupting the game client (the pre-alpha tech demo) without a deal with Crytek since it has included the CryEngine?
The GLA grants permission for CIG to sublicence the engine (see Section 2.1.2) but not to relicence it competitively. As for the different sub-companies, that's a standard business practice to limit liabilities and qualify for regional tax breaks.

You believe that Crytek can claim copyright infringement for its engine when the copyright was only filed a year after CIG had changed engines?

I'm not sure about what this point is about, so will offer nothing on it. I would not thinks so though.
That relates to the allegation that CIG violated copyright by showing Crytek code on Bugsmashers. It turns out Crytek own copyrighted the code in December 2017, just prior to the lawsuit being filed and a year after CIG had already changed engine. Crytek also didn't specify what code was violated, which is essential in a copyright violation claim.

Kosumo wrote on Jan 31, 2018, 18:45:
You are viewing that as though in the contract they where to separate products, which, at the time of the contract, they where both included in the same purchese of SQ42/Star Citizen - CIG as since made them into two separate games - you can buy only one or the other which is diffent than what was laid out in the GLA where they where both only to be sold togeather.

Do you not understand it that way? It says "and" not "or".
You've misunderstood that section of the GLA. It states "the Game does not include any content being sold and market separately, AND not being accessed through the Star Citizen Game client". Squadron 42 has never been released, therefore it was never not accessed through the Star Citizen Game client. The GLA allows them to be sold marketed separately provided they are distributed through the same client, which was always the intention. So again, Crytek's claim does not stand up to scrutiny.

Kosumo wrote on Jan 31, 2018, 18:45:
This is the real meat of the whole lawsuit don't you agree?

I do believe that Crytek had the understanding that CIG would make the game using ONLY the CryEngine and this is why Crytek gave CIG a very cheap fee to use it and also why they (Crytek done this, not Chris Roberts) made the original demos and promotional video for Chris Roberts.
Agreed. This is the main area of contention. Standard legal interpretation for contracts like this is that a right to use the engine is provided by the developer of the engine; it is not an obligation. Of all the claims this seems the most likely to proceed to the next stage should the motion to dismiss fail.

I've never used Bixby and I can't see any reason why I would. Even the voice assistant, the only aspect that could potentially have some value, was immediately disabled when it kept falsely triggering.

Foldable displays, on the otherhand, could be a big deal if the implementation is decent.
