Now, I'm wondering how much return you could make on investing in development of a game? If it doesn't sell well, you take a loss and get back less than you invested?

My guess is it'll be nominal to most stocks. A return of between 3-8%, and like most stocks that means if it does poorly, you get back less then what you bought in for and sold it. I doubt that there would be a maturing option for it.

It's a great idea, but it looks like GoG Connect doesn't cover DLC. I bought into the Founder's Edition for Galactic Civilization III. At Steam I have the game and all DLC. At GoG I have the base game.
Contact GoG first they'll fix it up for you, if they can't contact Stardock and they'll likely send you a code for it.

Wow, I see the "Star Citizen Justice Warriors" are out in force on the article.

Side Note: NMS has reached a new low! 16,403 recent reviews are Overwhelmingly Negative at 9%. I didn't even think that was possible.

Here's hoping it puts a nail into the indie-omg-we're-so-awesome-woooo-fuckya--we're-lying-sacks-of-shit crap that they've been pulling for the last couple of years.

Most of Trump's supporters aren't dumb, racist, bigots? Hahahaha! Yeah. Ok. There are two kinds of conservatives, the rich and the stupid, and most of them aren't rich.

Yeah and the people who support shit like this aren't authoritarian, SJW's who go out and attack people because they have a view point that's contrary to their world view. After all, his GF is fair game right? Then start running around scream muh safe space! We have to deplatform those scary conservatives! OMG MEN can't talk about reproductive rights! Look at *that* gay! He's got the wrong opinion, ban him! Look at that black guy, he's a conservative quick attack him! And on it goes, just like the other targets in the past. Just like with Eich, Hunt, Taylor, etc.

Yeah seriously. We've run across this problem on some of our sites. It's the same reason why you always roll with ECC on any critical system, and why you expect non-ECC non-criticals to screw the pooch and throw random bit errors at you. It's one of the reasons why they built the neutrino detector in an abandoned mine too. Because that lovely cosmic radiation can and is a real-world problem and has been well known since the 1970's.

If you can come up with a better way of blocking fake reviews, please post it. It's a very hard problem to solve everywhere on the internet right now.

Block indies/greenlight games off the top as they're the most prolific of doing this. Then run that fancy algorithm that they have which can actually show it, and then they can go as far as revoking the company from selling on steam altogether.

Right now, if you buy a game off GMG like say DX:MD, your review doesn't count for the game. Brilliant right?

Gawker dindu nuffin' wrong. Only ~900 more pages withheld because of an on-going investigation too. I suppose Univison's saving grace is they didn't buy up Gawker Media as well, otherwise they could be footing a rather huge fine. So many problems for ol'Nick, guess pissing upwind and refusing court orders, violating FTC regs. How much more? Only time will tell.

You trust this site.

And? Can't dispute the content of something, have to whine about a tongue-in-cheek joke. You can find other people writing about the same thing, but are triggered by a logo. Time to grow up a bit? Have a look over there at what you're refusing to? Or continue to be an ideologue. Choices, choices for you.

edit: Let me also add that this isn't rocket surgery. Either the logs are true, or they're not. If they're not then you're saying that people who actually participated in them are liars. If they are, then people who claimed to be harassed, were actual harassers. In turn, those harassers are openly working with both Twitter and Feminist Frequency. And both organizations organizations know this as they've refused to comment at all, or even distance themselves from them. That also means that all this time you've openly supported groups with a pro-harassment agenda, while claiming to be against harassment.

Or to boil it down, you supported shitty people. And those shitty people are out there still being harassing scumbags while writing policies(or helping to), and you're supporting a pro-authoritarian agenda.

Regardless of whether the base accusation is true, that anyone would say that's "not [a] political hit piece" is the sort of believe-what-sounds-good nonsense that makes GamerGate such a waste of time.

And that's the part where politicians and the corrupt love you.

I mean, Ethan Ralph, no? Or how about the Not Your Shield guy, who had been on lists of YouTube harassers prior to GG being a thing (and who got fired for running an underage jailbait creepshot subreddit.)

Or all the Burgers and Fries people? Or do you care to link to your own Twitter, where I guarantee you've sent tweets to people you dislike to tell them how awful they are.

You mean the guy who's been mocked since nearly the start of GG for being a retard and a conspiracy nut? Which one is that? The purple heart guy who anti-gg tried to dox? Or Marcedes Carrera? The porn star that backed GG, and aggros tried to dox her too, and claim she wasn't female? You mean Dan Olson who was posting jail bait(which he claimed he got from 8chan--fyi which isn't illegal in the US, but illegal in Canada and he's a Canadian citizen) and got a visit from the RCMP because of it? He was never pro in any sense, or you mean Sarah Nyburg who is anti-gg, and is a self-confirmed pedophile who actively abused their cousin and passed around CP?

You mean stuff before GG happened? Or the twitter account I don't have. FYI: And that first question there? Remember all those cries you gave of "GG needs to change it's name" congratulations on proving why it wouldn't have mattered anyway, even though it did change it from "Burgers and fries" to "gamergate" you simply didn't care, you had an ax to grind and shitty people to protect.

Not sure Blue posts political hit-piece site articles. Did you try to cross reference your topic with a site that actually tries to maintain some objectivity? I can't find that info on any non-pure-political or non-antisocial site, hell it didn't even make the crossover to faux news (though I could have missed it).
FYI you can read the leaks yourself, just google them. They're not political hit pieces, they're leaks about an organization and group of people who claim to be anti-harassment specialists. They were also sent to every site(from Kotaku to Polygon to Jezebel and Business Insider) that did pro-quinn and pro-CON pieces, and they wouldn't touch them, despite the fact that the leaks show them engaging in the very behavior that they claim to be against. Though other sites did, showing they had no qualms about showing how shitty of an organization and the people of it really are. CON itself has more problems, like claim that one of it's volunteers sexually harassed 20 women. FYI one of the people who confirmed that is also one of the people in CON(Izzy).

In the old days, this was called "circling the wagons." In the modern era which lacks even the basic shred of ethics, it's simply corruption, back scratching and protecting the clique.

Mashiki Amiketo, That is what I chalked it up too.

Possibly. Then again no one seems to be able to dispute anything, and it's far easier to bury your head in the sand then pretend the people you championed weren't the giant hypocrites they really were.

Ding ding ding. Though interesting that, within minutes, two old accounts that never post show up to post about GG.

Ever get around to actually finding that proof that people in GG are actually harassers there Beamer? Or are you still upset that major anti-GG names are actual harassers, doxers, and have threatened people. While claiming to be members of an "anti-harassment" organization, same said organization had a person who sexually harassed 20+ women. Oh and if you're talking about me? I only post when I feel like it, being old let's you do stuff like that.

Maybe GG is both old news and too toxic?

Doubtful. Can't go a day in the media without someone gamedropping on GG..or couldn't. But now that the big names(Haper, Quinn, Cross(Sarkeesian's one time right-hand) Coffin, Lifshitz, etc -- only one who's missing is Wu, and that's because they considered them too crazy to be of any use)), who claimed that GG was all about doxing/harassment/threads/death threats/ect are shown in the chatlogs to be actual agents of doing so? Seems that it is news and a story again.

There's also another huge leak of CON chatlogs coming, though no one knows what's in it. FYI on those first around of leaks, the content was given to just every gaming outlet and only 3 of them decided ti write a story. Can't prove that the narrative is wrong after investing 2 years of lies into.

Really?? This makes the news here at Blues but the CON leaks never got a mention.smh http://heatst.com/tech/chat-logs-expose-crash-override-network-as-online-bullies/

If you send it, he will post it. (Usually)

news at bluesnews dot com


Either blues felt it was unnewsworthy, or it got lost in the traffic. But with another brand of leeks from CON coming out showing that anti-GG were really the harassers in all of this, it should have a post. Especially since Blue covered the original GJP leaks, and all this crap shining a light on the industry. Never mind that the industry decided to triple down and start a "NO NO NO WE'RE NOT CORRUPT/HARASSING/PLANNING DOXS, NOT EVEN WHEN THOSE LEAKS SHOW IT TO BE TRUE" round of stories.

I sent it, along with three other articles from authors of three different sites. It was never posted.

But here's the mail I sent:

CON(Crash override network) which claimed to be out to help people of harassment, has been caught in their own chat logs harassing, planning doxs, and attempting to get individuals fired. This group was supposed to "deal with the harassment of gamergate" which has never been substantiated in any form, those who claim to have been harassed have offered no emails, no police reports, no proof in any form of said abuse coming from any person directly attached to it.

Another member of CON has been accused of sexually harassing 20+ women.

By Ian Miles Choeng(EiC of Gameranx)
http://heatst.com/tech/chat-logs-expose-crash-override-network-as-online-bullies/

"Harassment is rife on social media. Users are allegedly targeted for no reason other than their gender or the color of their skin and the only response by these platforms is to ban users who violate their code of conduct. More often than not, users simply engage in online arguments with each other based on their political views.

In the months after the GamerGate movement arose, Zoe Quinn founded Crash Override Network, or CON. Her alleged infidelity was the catalyst for the now infamous hashtag. The organization was set up to fight online abuse—purporting to deal with the harassment of women and minorities in the game industry on social media. In case you’re wondering, the name was inspired by the cult ‘90s movie Hackers.

In response to criticism of its platform, Twitter established a “Trust and Safety Council” to make the platform a less hostile place for users. The council is supposed to prevent abuse, harassment, and bullying. Among the select organizations to become a part of the council, Feminist Frequency was listed as an inaugural member. It’s no secret that Feminist Frequency now sponsors Crash Override Network."

By Joshua Wiitala(Editor of Gamertics)
http://www.gamertics.com/leaked-crash-override-network-logs-reveal-inner-workings/

Snippet:
"One of the most common accusations made about GamerGate is that it is a hate group dedicated to targeted harassment, doxing, and cyber bullying. As it turns out, all of these accusations are more likely true about some of those who stand opposed to GamerGate, their lofty goal of putting an end to unethical and heavily biased video games journalism a goal that this writer supports wholly.

Ian Miles Cheong, a man who once stood opposed to GamerGate, has come forward to tell people that the chat logs detailing planned doxing and harassment of GamerGate supporters are in fact, real. As well as falsely accusing GamerGate supporters of things they never did knowingly simply to continue spreading a false narrative of harassment."


By Ashe Schow(Commentary writer @ Washington Examiner/Senior Political Columnist @ The Observer)

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/when-the-harassed-become-the-harassers/article/2600558

Snippet:

"Quinn used her new celebrity status to found Crash Override Network, which was supposed to stop online bullying. But internal chat logs from members who would eventually create the group, leaked by a member of the group, reveal that it used tactics such as doxxing (by which a person's private contact information is published online in order to intimidate them) to harass people in the Gamergate movement or those who members of CON had a personal grudge against.

For example, the group discussed trying to contact the superior officer of a Purple Heart recipient who had expressed support of Gamergate to try to silence him. The group also discussed contacting Google in an attempt to get Justine Tunney fired after she also voiced support for Gamergate."
