It always entertains me when people don't realize that a given game isn't trying to be what they want it to be, so their complaints aren't valid.

It's like people complaining that the original Dungeons game from 2011 was a bad Dungeon Keeper game. Well... that might be so, but it wasn't TRYING to be a Dungeon Keeper game... so the criticism isn't relevant.

"Look, a company that has been screwing customers over for a quarter century has become so hated that, for ONCE, they changed a game. THE SYSTEM WORKS!"

F*cking Libertarians. Possibly the most naive on the simpleton political spectrum.

Athlon's website is about the most generic thing I've seen in years. Three links, doesn't tell shit about actual game name accomplishments and for what little is there, this is fun:

"There are currently no job openings available. We’re always looking for talent though, so please email your resume to careers@athlongames.com"


No jobs but always looking, gotcha!

Feeling Daybreak'ish.

Literally everything on it screams placeholder. A whole entire ONE news announcement. References to the IMPLICATION that they make a lot of awesome games without a single example of a game they've done.

Global Headquarters across Eurasia? Sounds like a ton of money being thrown on a brand new corporation... meaning... the money doesn't want people to associate the new project with the money's old work.

Also... Athlon Games? Really? Are they unaware that the name has a history in the gaming world? Yes, it's not that uncommon outside of gaming, but c'mon... it's almost like the money behind the company has no clue about gaming and tech...

No it doesn't unless you're on a very limited budget, which Valve most certainly is not. They could have dev Valve and store Valve without breaking a sweat.


Since resources are, by definition, limited... yes... yes they do. There are only so many supremely talented people in the world, only so much time in the day, and only so many days on the calendar.

Saying they don't take resources away is like telling someone to give 110% and then meaning it literally.

Let's not pretend that this is time-sensitive info. Watching this tomorrow instead of next-weekend isn't going to change the lack of a game in any way.
The only reason to stay on top of the news, minute-to-minute be is to have a current record of all the changed plans and broken promises... which is a full-time job.

Destiny pointed to a couple of other reasons for the ban, while M0E argued that using the word “fag” is passable because he didn’t use it with any homophobic intention.

“My intent was never hate filled,” m0E said on Twitter. “If you know me at all you would know that homophobia is one word that has never been associated with me before.”

The stupidity is strong with this one. Clearly he's not getting the whole pejorative thing. Another self-entitled moronic millennial. Saw a great T-shirt the other day which read "Stop Making Stupid People Famous".


The ONLY time that defense is POSSIBLY okay is when 100% of the intended audience understands and accepts the context. If you're streaming, that's public, and it's automatically non-applicable.

I'll use myself as an example. I have some buddies that I text/IM things that, if made public, would offend MANY people. But the people I interact with in that way understand the context and it's usually satiruco (such as a verbatim quote to mock the person who initially said it sincerely).

That's why I give more leeway to certain situations where what someone said privately became public. I may ask "Was it a joke? If so, what was the joke specifically?"... That type of thing.

But no... if you're vulgar in public it's because you're a vulgar person.

A few hours in and pretty good so far but like every Obsidian release it has "Bugs Bunny was here" written all over it (cue a fanboi claiming they had ZERO bugs both here as well as the release version of the original game in 3... 2... 1...).

There is one really bad crash early on if you take the "game over" path.
Yes, that's right, you can literally end the game after five minutes by being uncooperative so the crash is not really that bad as far as progression in the game goes but for many people, myself included, it crashes the game and locks up the PC so it's still kinda meh.

Other than that, my save import from the first game seems to have worked fine contrary to many other people (or maybe I just have a really bad memory and don't even get a chance to give a shit), no more crashes in over three hours, decent performance but lots and lots of little bugs and issues that add up.

There is also an official list of known major issues (um, so after having a beta and a delay, why does the game still ship with KNOWN MAJOR ISSUES in the first place, Obsidian, hm? Weeeelll?? Why??? ).

Anyway, guess I'm gonna keep playing for a few more hours, then shelve it for a proper playthrough around xmas when all the DLC is going to be included and when it is hopefully patched up really well.
It's certainly a special game that deserves to be played in its best possible state.
Well, and xmas is a much nicer time of year for such an epic RPG anyway.

So far, so good. Give it a few patches and then this is going to have the potential to be RPG of the Year award material.

I actually started up a new POE1 character a week before 2 launched so that I won't play POE2 for a few weeks, maybe even a month, because there's no way I'd play an Obsidian product on Day 1. Definitely really enjoyed the first one, however.

I've actually commented on numerous Steam Reviews. For example, there's a certain game I've invested hundreds of hours in lately that frequently gets comments like this that I saw today:

"In my opinion the best *game genre* since *certain historic game*, compelling story, stellar characters that stick to memory and evoke emotion, mechanics that feel real and believable most of the times. Immersive."

With over 300 hours.

But yet... it's a negative review. Why? Buggy as hell upon release. But they have "0.0 hours in the past two weeks" and so I let them know they're full of crap for absolutely LOVING a game and yet leaving a negative review without following-up. If Steam had a "First Impressions" review category and a "long after release" category that'd be fine, but they don't, so all these "it was buggy on release but I loved it but I'm leaving a negative review but I'm not going to follow-up" get downvotes for me. I leave them a comment letting them know that I'll change it if they bother following up.

FWIW, I *DO* agree the game at hand was released a few months early and it's a GREAT example of Miyamoto's "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."

And I refused to leave a positive review until they fixed the release bugs, which they have.

Yeah, as this becomes more and more prevalent with insurance companies denying you insurance because you won't agree to be spied on 24/7 where will all those advocates of the "free market" be? For those of us in our poor ol' socialized democracies we don't have to worry about the bullshit.

Considering how many people run around with fitness trackers I'd be very careful of hoping for "socialized democracies" being immune to this. Insurers will push for it, that's guaranteed. And it only takes 1 weak government and a lobbyist in the right position and even we would be fucked.

Best ending of a classic game was the end of Impossible Mission on the C-64. "No, NO, NOOOOOOO!"

The "wrong" ending in Karateka was also life-long memorable like Impossible Mission. Great times.

And yeah... ME3. Yet again PCGamer tries to be cool by subverting the obvious and fails utterly.

This is the first thing I thought. Hah. I don't buy Razer products anyways so it won't affect me...

My Deathadder 2013 is still going strong 4 years on. It's comfy, accurate, and the thumb grips haven't shown signs of wearing out yet. I'm quite pleased it's been issue-free. Judging by the Razer subreddit, there's no end to issues with their laptops.

Not sure why four years is anything to bring up in a discussion on hardware quality, unless your point is that the performance hasn't been terrible so far.

Facebook.

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.

I never used the client. First thing I do when getting a new phone is uninstall it. I don't use Messenger, either (it never caught on with anyone I know, though I know it's huge.) I just use a Wrapper, like Folio Pro, which pulls data from the mobile site and puts it in a more app-like experience.

Which is why, when I download my data from Facebook, it has nothing unexpected about me. No "apps" I've enabled to use my data, as anytime I click a link that asks to connect I reject. No insights. Just a very basic profile about me, the type of information I'm ok with literally anyone knowing about me, and which helps them give me ads that suck slightly less. If Facebook wants to know my age, education, where I live, gender, and that I enjoy luxury watches, I don't care. There was nothing in the data beyond that.

It's almost like you understand how the internet works. Also... "Announcing 1.1.1.1: the fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service" <--- if you want my business you might want to learn basic grammar first. I know using commas correctly is no longer in vogue these days but give us a break, that's ridiculous.
