Is it illegal for the schezwan place to tell me that their General Tao Chicken is rated "5 stars", or that the Chow Mein is a "House special"?

Depends, are those people being paid to write such by the company it's employed by? And there we've hit the basic problem of writing for/about the company who's either selling the products for someone else. To top it off now you've got a conflict of interest and a severe ethical breach. In some cases that's full on illegal(see various consumer protection laws), in other cases it would be a severe ethical breach of truth in advertising laws in turn making it either a regulation breach(meaning heavy fines or restrictions) or in the very worst case illegal if the organization refers the matter to the crown/DA/etc for prosecution.

Think the smallest HDD size they still manufacture is either 150GB or 250GB both in single platter configurations. Which of course is funny, because I sadly remember when I got my first 250MB HDD(first new desktop our family got had a quantum 40MB HDD in it though) and thought I'd never fill it, then 1TB a few years later.

You can find remanufactured drives that are 100GB and less, but they're expensive. Generally running the price of what you'd pay for 1TB or more e.g. $40-125, and if you really need a drive that's locked due to particular reasons you're like at EOL on the hardware anyway.

I had a bunch of stuff in my cart, got pulled away before I could purchase. Finally had free time on July 4... but the sale was over! Who ends a sale on July freakin' 3???

There's a madness behind that. It makes you think, well it'll be over before the holiday...so I'd better buy it now, so I can play it then. Not saying it was a smart move, but that'd be my guess as to why they did it.

I spent 4$ ... aka.. nothing really.... without the daily sales there was also a distinct lack of proper guidance to a decent game I might not have yet heard of...

$1.56 myself, and that was to pick up the ghostbusters game(ghostbusters 3). I didn't see anything I wanted that I already didn't have or haven't gotten around to playing yet.

should I start w2 over or just go for W3 ? (I tend to have game-ADD when it comes to single player games so I'm thinking just skip straight to W3 but hoping I dont miss out on too much story...

W3 has a simulate choice and dialog choice options(after you complete white orchard) since events from the first two games carry over to the 3rd. You could skip the 2nd game, but those choices might not make any sense if you didn't complete the story itself.

Yeah, no point in waiting, just play it. Just a brilliant game and perfect finish with Blood and Wine. I'm a sad panda that's all there is.

Blood and wine was damned amazing and you could count it as a completely separate game. But both of those expansions or DLC that people want to call them? It's been a long time since I was that impressed.

WTH do I do now?? Should I just wait more??

You're killing me here CDPR!!!
Nah. Finish your play through it's likely 5-9mo out at this point, that's how long it usually takes for it to be released after they give a tip on the directors cut/enhanced ed. etc.



Yep called it. Someone in another thread said that they wouldn't be releasing a "super deluxe version" at all because the game was already done and there was no more to add. Fuckin' CDPR showing the industry that even if you do it right, there's room for improvement.

Let's just hope they learned not to fuck around with the dialog system like they did with FO4.

Because DX12 is basically crap.

I'd like to see Vulkan supported though, although much of the same problem applies there (game developer needs to know ins and outs of the cards).

No real excuse. Vulcan is supported on the previous 3/4 generations of videocards out on the market now, same with DX12.

Okay, thanks for the info.

Yep NP.

The only downside to this is that unless they include SKSE instructions in the new version, we're all going to have to wait for a new script extender before all of the good mods become available again. I'm hoping that they do that, it would save the SKSE team some work.

So I guess that the legendary skills have been patched into the regular version, too?

They were patched in a long time ago in patch 1.9(1.9.29.0.8 or beta 1.9.26.08) current patch is Version 1.9.32.0.8

I forgot how many expert economists we had on this site.

...

The loophole of virtual items is going to need to get dealt with at some point.

Hey well, everyone can read wikipedia or investopedia and become experts in mere minutes! Never mind they'd likely lose their shirt in 10 minutes of doing trades or something.

Anyway, there's a reason why in most countries there's a minimum age requirement for gambling(usually in the 17-21 range). And that's because it's known that gambling is a very easy trap to fall into and the chance of winning anything will reinforce the possibility of winning again. Really, these guys are likely in for a hell of a shock, since where they're operating out of...it's illegal without following the paper work. Similar to what several YTers discovered in running random draws, you in some cases need to escrow for the amount beforehand.

That's pretty much how it works for any company wanting to deal in certain territories, follow their laws or get fined/kicked out.

It's the reason Steam has refunds, they were forced to either have a refund system, get fined until they do or loose access to a market.

Yep. And looking at the regs and laws surrounding this. It appears that Bethesda may not be in the clear, since it would be considered "a product of similar likeness" aka same shit, more expensive.

Valve's a US company though and I'm pretty sure the Competition Bureau has no authority over them in this case. Could be wrong but I think that's the case.

You're wrong. If a company sells a product in Canada, they fall under the auspices of the competition bureau. The same way that if you offer a product in Canada and it has a privacy policy, it falls under the federal privacy act, and provincial privacy acts.

Well looks like it's time to file a complaint with the competition bureau. Jacking up the price on something higher then the original base price prior to a sale is illegal as fuck here in Canada.

Duh. There's been a lot of really shitty games(Mighty no9), and a lot of games that have come off as scams or simply haven't shipped. That means people have gotten good at spotting the bullshit.

Doesn't help that the indie clique basically caused this, and they're going to crash and burn because of it.
