Nice birthday present from them. Already had mine, thanks, but would be nice if other publishers did similar promotions.
Heads up that this is the censored version. Though FIXT works to uncensor it.

Shit, this bitch has already been cracked. that has to be some kind of new record for cracking Denuvo.

LMFAO!!!
Yeah it is. Took 9-10hrs to crack it, and it's the newest version of denuvo no less, which operates inside a virtual machine(don't worry it won't impact performance guys...really). Bet the guys in their office are panicking now, they screeched from the rooftop that "it was the best copy protection evar" then changed their mind with a "it's only meant to stop it the first few weeks..." Maybe they can go with first few hours or something?

Ah, then I was thinking about SkyUI probably....

SkyUI upto v2.02 works fine in the SE. And with the alpha release of the SE, SkyUI5.0 works 90% or so. For anyone who's not been paying attention to it the current SE team priority is: SKSE64 to stable w/SkyUI 5.0. Once that's done it's all downhill and adding functions back in. So many mods require the mcm built into skyui that once it's working to 100% almost everything can be ported.

In an interview with The Washington Post in 2016, Horner said he thought Trump won the White House because of him.

Massive regret at having helped birth this fucking sideshow of an administration?
Pretty funny that you're taking the word of a serial liar as gospel, even when he said he's a serial liar. That derangement syndrome is pretty bad.

Oh and enjoy "his website". When you find more BS that counters what he says, don't worry. Just realize you're duped and living in a mass hysteria bubble.

Thanks. Its battle.net software is bloated, annoying, buggy, etc. when I used it last year for its Overwatch free weekend #1.

It's got a smaller memory footprint than origin(60MB) and steam now(80MB in beta), just under 40MB and the last 8mo or so have seen huge improvements in stability and proper thread handling during idle.

New Horizons? That would make the Borg better but I think they are focusing on spit and polish right now.
NH is still in early beta, lots of stuff needs work on from balance to WIP text fillers.

As for whether or not it's playable start-to-finish? Yeah...and no. Still missing lots of content, lot of flavor context they're adding in too.

Simon Says wrote on Sep 21, 2017, 18:00:
Has combat been fixed yet? I tried it last year, balance was practically non-existent, the combat mechanics sucked and the corvette spam was pretty much an "I win button".
Corvette spam is dead now, and weapon upgrades were fully reworked. Going over your fleet cap is also more punishing.

Should make the star trek TC much easier for the developers, especially with the ability to assimilate pops built into the base game now.

Deserved by whom? The developers? Maybe. Or the consumer who is just trying to find honest reviews about a product, not a bunch of fucking spam? And who decides? Some autistic fuckwits on /v/?

Maybe you should be asking the question: "Why are all these people pissed off and being vocal about it. Especially that guy, with 1500 hours played." Instead of thinking it's "some autistic fuckwits."

No no, I understand, it's because it's difficult to figure out why people are pissed off and giving a developer the middle finger. And asking yourself the tough question: "Do I really want to support this bullshit if I'm a customer."

I don't see anything in there where he put it in the public domain. Part of copyright is that you can give permission for other people to use it. That doesn't mean you give it up. It seems to me that he gave permission for people on 4chan to use his design, for posting on 4chan.

2. Again, he hasn't abandoned his copyright. He never said he gave up all his rights to his creation or ceded it into the public domain, which is what it would take. With the most generous reading in the world, you can willfully ignore the context of 4chan in the profit question and read that he gave permission for anyone to profit off his work, but that still doesn't cancel out his rights of ownership.

3. It seems like he does have an abandoned trademark (link) but you can see that it's for the actual name, "Pepe the Frog" (hence the description of the typeset). That generally would have protected against Disney or the like making a character called "Pepe the Frog" and doesn't relate to the artwork.

"People of 4chan" is the internet. Think on it this way, 4chan is one of the heaviest trafficked sites in the world. 4chan considers as part of their manifesto to be "a website anyone can use." By granting 4chan use, he's effectively given the internet and everyone the right to use it. Since there's no way to define "who" uses 4chan except anyone with an internet connection that leaves it open to anybody.

He did actually abandon his copyright. See the existing case of pillsbury vs milkyway if you need an in-depth example of how an entity who doesn't defend their copyright and it "gains a life of it's own" can't retroactively try to claim copyright on it.

This is exactly why I was asking. I looked around a bit, but don't see anything about him putting Pepe in the public domain, so I had no idea what he was talking about. As far as I can tell, that never happened.
Read the article I linked. He placed it into the public domain himself, abandoned the copyright himself, and has never defended the trademark.

What do you mean, "places it into the public domain"? Apparently not if the copyright has been enforced.
Copyright is automatic after the 1976 BERN convention. If you create a work you have copyright, but you can waive or in his case -- place it into the public domain. That leaves him with nothing.

So the creator of Pepe the Frog is defending his copyright against conservative racist trolls. Furie has hired intellectual property lawyers to defend his creation against misuse by racists, and he is winning.
Way to go dude, keep up the good fight.

How does one win when one waives copyright and places it into the public domain? Yeah, that one is easy to answer. I like the buzz words though. Maybe next time you can also toss in progressive racist anti-first amendment trolls too, just to balance it all out.

Oh and one of the people he's threatened has already said Come at me bro.

Obsidian is still going strong, also inXile. And lets not forget Bethesda. I dont like their sandbox games, but they were essential in keeping the RPG genre popular. Whenever someone said, that SP games, that expensive RPGs are dead ... you just had to point at Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3.

Problem with Bethesda right now is they think after Skyrim they can pull a "fuck you" with everyone. They seem to have forgotten that it was modding that made their games, not the other way around. And if their next title pulls a FO4? It'll likely piss a lot of people off.

Oh boy. The guy has no case, nothing. He abandoned his copyright, didn't defend the trademark. Threw it to the wind, and on top of that "pepe" falls into transformative work everytime a new meme is made.

No where in there does it say anything about the person who won the popular, fair and square, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Protip: If you want someone elected by the popular vote, then come to Canada. Where two provinces can elect a PM, and fuck the rest of the country. Or where a single gigantic city can fuck an entire province(Ontario). The EC is the best solution to break the "extreme coasts" from fucking everyone else in the middle.

If you're using your phone at home a Pi Hole is probably the best option.

Didn't know what else to use on the go, so gonna give Brave a try and see how it works this week. Thanks for the heads-up on that.

Pi Hole is excellent, it even runs well on a simple raspberry pi or simple low-end device, and it's trivial to route all your traffic through it first.

Only gamers would argue that calling black people the n-word is not racism. Christ.

Of course it was a concerted campaign. So what?

For the record I don't agree with the article that deleting your Steam account might actually achieve anything. Valve has way too much power for any boycott (by users or developers) to make the slightest bit of difference.
Only someone who thinks that the world revolves around them believe that words maintain the same or even have any negativity around them. So when's the last time you got upset over cracka? How about lighting up a fag?

"So what?" Well obviously it seems to get the little snowflakes so upset that they do something stupid that's basically harming themselves. Where everyone else either shakes their head or laughs at their stupidity.

It's not. You're being trolled, and it looks like hard. Bet you can even find the threads on /b/ that started it still without having to go hit an archive.

If you're getting so upset by words that you delete your steam account, a wrapping yourself in bubble wrap and hiding with puppies is your only solution.

Are you saying a white person does have the same life experience as a black person?

No. They're saying that if you're immediately jumping to the race card to make an argument, you're a piece of shit. On top of that, outside of the US the word doesn't have the stigma of 'whitey using dat word.' Once you go and live in other parts of the world, you'll discover just how insular your life has really been. That is if you survive the culture shock.

And as a heads up because the race specialists are going to come out in the defense of poor minorities, I am a minority and I don't need you to defend me. I can do that plenty well enough on my own.

But if you really want to argue that a white person can have the same life experience as a black person they can. Go ask the ones that managed to escape Zimbabwe for example. Or the ones fleeing south africa which is currently engaged in a racist purge against whites.

edit: Polygon's article is garbage anyway. It's probably one of the best examples of people who have never experienced an adrenaline rush and the brain 'flipping off' during those moments. If you've pvp'd you've experienced it, and the brain 'flipping off' during that is no different then a fist fight or car crash. It was the level that fight or flight kicked in.
