That WW1 Kickstarter was a painful read. I haven't seen such a clusterfudge of concentrated grammar errors since the Rotten Tomatoes petition.
And a lot of his fundamental arguments are wrong. There are plenty of WW1 games.

I just stopped buying their dlc, it just seems like a soak your gamers blind strategy. Especially when the music is separate? No one does that than this idiot developer.

Holy Grammar Errors, Batman!!!

I have no idea what "seems like a soak your gamers blind" means, so I'll just ignore that. What's wrong with music as separate DLC? It's called "a la carte" and it's awesome. Would you prefer to HAVE to buy the music? LOTS of people only want the game expansion without the extra, superfluous stuff like music and graphics. Besides... there's a 100% chance that the DLC will be on sale within a few months, so there's literally no reason not to buy it if you're interested in the actual expansions.

Soda is definitely bad for your health, but not nearly as bad as some other things that we tax, like cigarettes. I'm never in favor of more taxes on people, as I think most people pay enough in taxes, and a soda tax is highly regressive. It could (and probably would) also be the start of a slippery slope. First the government taxes soda for having too much sugar and high calories. Then candy, chocolate, etc. Then on to snack cakes, pies, ice cream, fast food, etc. Finally high-fat meats, sausages, bacon, etc. Why not? Soda is not the single cause of obesity in the country. Singling one unhealthy item out of hundreds of thousands isn't right, and I think once the government gets their foot in the door, the sky's the limit.

Soda is no worse for you than these supposedly healthy "juices" that have the same number of calories and similar ingredients.

You seem to be unaware that soda has literally no nutritional benefit. Fruit juices have at least a little bit of nutrition to them, as does everything on the admittedly well-laid-out slippery slope.

Unless you need empty calories, there's literally no benefit to soft drinks.

And who cares if it's regressive. It's ENTIRELY optional. As someone who drinks a lot of soft drinks, I know I'm the one and only person to blame/credit for how many soft drinks I consume.

Oh that article about stress really annoyed me, but it didn't stress me out.....

TL:DR Pretty sure this "study" is an advert for McDonalds

1. They never actually tell how much of a difference stress makes. Is it even a significant amount? Why aren't there any numbers? Why aren't any studies referenced?

2. They never really mentioned whether stress was causing people to eat more food, and if that was the reason for additional plaque creation and weight gain.

3. There is no such thing as good fat when it comes to oils. All oils are a highly processed and refined product that contribute to cardiovascular disease, and weight gain. Even they're so called 'good fat' sunflower oil, while it doesn't have cholesterol so it doesn't create plaque, helps the existing plaque stick around. It also puts out the omega 6 : omega 3 ratios. And all fats/oils have 9 calories per gram (vs only 4 calories per gram of protein and carbs). So even a tiny amount means you are eating lots of extra 'empty' calories, since most of the nutrition was stripped during oil extraction.

4.The food cooked (eggs, sausage, and probably the gravy) are full of saturated fats - they themselves call 'bad fats'. So whichever oil/fat they cooked the food in would have only had a minimal effect since both meals contained significant amounts of 'bad fat'. The sunflower cooking oil meal would have had only just slightly less "bad fat".

5.Eggs, Gravy, Biscuits, Sausage is a terrible breakfast - not one of those ingredients contains any fibre..... the biscuit might have a tiny amount but it was probably made from bleached white flour which has almost no fibre left. It's a great recipe for constipation. And yes stool size and frequency is an indicator of health and predictor disease - such fun ones as colon cancer. Just like regular cancer only up your butt(sort of :)).

6. They go out of their way to link you to the McDonalds website nutritional information - Was this "study" just a sneaky way to say "good fats, bad fats doesn't matter if you're stressed, so come relax and eat at McDonalds because it's the same amount of fat and calories" ? Suspicious!

The take away from my morning ranting is:
Don't eat any fat or oil, apart from those from wholefoods such as nuts, flaxseed, avocados. And very little amounts. A handful of nuts, and a tablespoon of flaxseed contains all of the "good fats" omega 6 and omega 3, and in the correct ratio. Everything else will that is refined, or extracted or isolated will cause, contribute, or at least not alleviate disease.

Edit: my sources are from and various books by Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Cadwell Esselstyn Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Colin T. Campbell.

Heh you said fibre.

Regarding whether or not you should pre-order... how bout simply having some standards and learning patterns.

But... this is a world where Molyneux was able to get away with outright lying for 15 years before he was outted from the industry, where Shafer was clearly incapable of running a business for 15 years before people got sick of his sh*t, where Shyamalan still gets picked as a writer/director, and people are passionately pissed about No Man's Sky even after YEARS of VERY DIRECT clues... so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised... at all.

F*ck people are stupid.

Games are hella more expensive now - triple A at least. Even 3 years ago we were on par with the US now we pay $20 more a game. Over a 30% increase in price in just 3 years. And they wonder why we flock to G2A and the like.

LOL, you pull these stats out of your ass, and no wonder, they smell like it. Evidence or GTFO.

A AAA game was $50 at launch 15 years ago, as Beam just demonstrated. Today, they are $60, which is basically the same after adjusting for inflation.

Dude they were 50 bucks 25-to-30 years ago. I know Cutter talks out of his ass... a LOT... but this is stupid even for him. Yes, there was a slight bump recently (where AAA PC games went from 50 to 60) but overall the price of games is ridiculously low.

Cutter, if you know how to search for information on the internet, I highly recommend you look for an Arstechnica article entitled "Why retail console games have never been cheaper, historically". Find a 10 year old if you don't know how to use the internet to find facts, they'll learn ya.

Sorry man... I couldn't resist (I won't lie, I didn't want to)... that was just *REALLY*... *REALLY* stupid.

What's wrong with 1 major DLC and 7 minor? If you DON'T want the picture packs and you DO want the music, wouldn't you rather be able to buy only what you want?

Now... getting a discount if you buy it all is nice, of course, but I'd rather have the option to buy piecemeal if I want.

But since literally every piece of DLC goes on sale within a few months (or upon the release of the next DLC) then I don't see why people are whining about the price.

So... you'd rather ONLY be able to pay 10 dollars later than 15 dollars now? You guys would rather ONLY be able to buy the music and the portraits and the graphics together instead of being able to pick and choose what you want?

What's the difference between that and forcing people to buy the graphics and music in the expansion itself?

There's *nothing* wrong with giving us the choice between the whole thing now, waiting a lil while for a major discount, or buying it a la carte. Paradox is doing EXACTLY what people have been asking the cable companies to do for decades. Many people would love to be able choose between a package that has EPSN ($4) and the various history channels ($2) for a total of $6 *OR* be able to pay only 5 for ESPN by itself or 3 for the history package by itself.

Paradox is doing exactly that and people are STILL b*tching. And people whine when people point out how entitled the gaming community is.

Apparently there are many incredibly naive people in this thread.

Their store is not just an optional add-on. It's not just gonna sit there. It will grow with every major patch, like some sort of fungus.

Eventually there will be a "glitch", for example Steam notifications in-game will drop the framerate to a crawl.

By that point NVidia cards supporting DX 12.2 or whatever will be out, and MS will say, "due to radical optimizations in DX12.2 framework, it is no longer feasible to do shared rendering".

Gabe Newell will scramble to fix it, maybe come up with some sort of hack. Which will work for most games but not all. Annoyances begin.

Then M$ will say something like, "due to changes in networking stack to increase security, Win10 no longer allows firewall punching", which will destroy SteamPlay for a number of games.

Valve will then be forced to pay money for more servers and try to transparently emulate former SteamPlay peer-to-peer functionality that way, creating more lag, and it won't work for some games too.

Another annoyance.

The chain will continue until there is one annoyance after another.

Note that these aren't exact perfect examples of what will happen, but it is the general way in which a company of this magnitude can weasel its way into strangling the competition.

It's almost as if there is 30 years of history to find plenty of evidence to learn from!

Best comments section in weeks guys.

The one thing I'll add is that he said pay them 60k. And that would round off to costing 100k. Cuzza like, ya know, benefits.

No one said pay them 100k.

The heck are you guys talking about? The graphics have, depending on your definition, either been cartoony for about 15 years or so, or have been cartoony the entire time. If you hate that aspect of the game you've hated the last 3 or 4 entries into the series.

I, for one, love the new look of the map and I think the change of the way cities work is a massive enough change to warrant a new entry into the series. I'm glad they're taking risks. If I want to play the same game over and over, I'll do exactly that, since I have all the games in the series.

It is a good offer by GOG. Of course, GOG gets a lot of information on its customers this way, too, by learning what games the customers bought on Steam instead of GOG and vice versa. This puts GOG in a position to check out the customers' reaction to its price politics and more. Pretty clever.

Definitely! Information, and more properly, the management and use of said information, is definitely the way tech is going... as per

This is a smart move by GOG.
