I am never going to understand why people keep trying to use these cryptocoins as actual currency... when the value fluctuates that much, it's simply not valid to use as a day to day currency, let alone a way to pay workers. How fucking pointless does work become if your pay can lose 50% of it's value in an hour? Scammers will get rich off this, people with fewer financial resources will suffer.
That's ignoring how energy intensive and SLOW Bitcoin is for transactions. Hopefully people will learn from this, but of course, based on the past 5 years or so, it's safe to say they won't.
"As an entertainer I don't get political often. Yet with so many vocal peers on the other side of this issue, I felt it was important to go on the record as a pro-life game developer."Of all the times to get political, this has to be one of the worst.

Saints Row Woke Edition. Hard pass.

Did they renew the license on the Lego games? I remember I got one free awhile back before it was pulled from Steam.

I mean maybe Cutter has a point here - their "wokeness" and fragile sensibilities makes them outraged when a game features plot points or structures that doesn't cater to their specific tastes, and instead of simply ignoring the game they want the game to change to their tastes. But they won't look to the mod community to do it, they take to Twitter and rag on the developers.
Oh, you mean like all the people sending death threats to the Last of Us 2 devs because they didn't like the plot points or structures, and it didn't cater to their specific tastes?
Those woke KotakuInAction people?

Blizzard announces, then releases Overwatch, a reskinned TF2. Valve says nothing.
Epic releases new game mode for Fortnite which apes One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Among Us. Among Us devs cry.
Not a lot of sympathy here, but maybe they're right that a collaboration could have been a cooler implementation. But Epic isn't under any obligation to do so, and most likely they debated collaborating and the vote or decision came down on the No side.

I thought the Republican party was the pro-military spending one. When did they become Russia's choice?

They do a job many people would gladly do for free. I'm not saying they aren't overworked, and they may have a legitimate gripe. I think they may be seeing how much the public is hating ActiBlizz right now and are attempting to ride the coattails of those that have had actual harm done to them. I don't think its a good look.
