Only patching woes I've had with that game involve occasionally waiting for the new version of F4SE.

Fortunately, they were quick to support this patch.

Speaking of F4SE; is it the reason I'm not seeing achievements?

I understand most complaints about W10.
...
Too much anecdotal nonsense is being widely accepted as fact regarding W10.

I agree. It is a great OS. But the things Microsoft are doing to trick or force people to upgrade are just wrong.

I'm not sure how getting Steam to run on Android gets PC games to run on Android. Can someone explain this to me?

I think of lock screens the same way I think of screen savers. Why the heck are you sitting there looking at it? Don't you have something you want to use the PC for?

Plus the fact it can be disabled (the lock screen itself and/or the ads on the lock screen) equals much ado about nothing.

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Escapist needs to call their bluff. The last thing CIG wants is for this to go to court. Real facts will come out in depositions, and I don't think they can handle the exposure.

I will never understand why "artists" feel they're entitled to work once and get paid forever because of it. The world would grind to a halt if everyone worked the same way. These guys are already vastly overpaid for what they do and it's still not enough. Oh well, when they're replaced with non-union actors, or better still, software, they'll regret their unmitigated selfishness.

I agree it part. They want their cake and eat it too. They should not be "vastly overpaid" up front. Make the pay completely based on residuals, because they should share in all profit present or future.

In fact, seems that should be the model for most works of art. If your product is good, it will have longevity and continue to support you. It might even incentivize some from "phoning in" work just to get a fat check.

I'm vegetarian and would have absolutely no problem eating artifically grown meat, beyond any health concerns. Then again, I do eat fish and sometimes catch dinner myself.

Sure you don't mean Pescatarian?

That my friend, is a contract. And if you breach it, you should be found liable and pay for it.

Where is the contract here? I didn't realize kickstarting money was considered a contract. (I've never bothered with it, so really don't know the answer).

Paying people off that are vocally critical of your work is good business sense. It is also called hush money under different circumstances.

Blue, with the apparent return of Derek to the fold, it might be time for a partnership of sorts with him. What I mean is that maybe he could do a piece every so often for your page and it would be the thoughts from a developer on whatever current "scandalous" type happenings going on in the world of video game development. It could be called Overdeveloped with Derek Smart and I think it could be HUGE! Of course you would have to deal with the constant ego maniacal self stroking and occasional mini flame wars that may erupt but think of influx of visitors to the site! I mean hell, people would show up JUST to take pot shots at Derek! It's got WIN written all over it! Just think about it guys...this could be something magical, nausea inducing, and god forbid, even enlightening!

A huge +1 , and I don't even care if you are being sarcastic or not.

When are developers going to stop expecting the worst from their customers? First piracy, and now this.

Yes, there are people that will steal your game. Yes, there are people that will abuse a refund policy. Suck it up. Spend your energy and talents on providing value to the people that want to give you their money.

What would people like that do with their lives if there wasn't something to be offended by? They'd have to create something. Christ go house the homeless or do something worthwhile.

I agree with the sentiment, but doesn't it apply to just about everything bitched about in these very forums? First world problems, all. It's really quite silly when you think about it, and we could probably all benefit from that advice.
