This is going to be a great thing for casual gamers who only spend an hour or two every couple days on the service, that way their data cap doesn't get used up. I have a brother who games rarely and he's pretty hyped about this.

I'm not in the loop, but HOW do these cheaters cheat?

Are they hacking the game? What's going on? How are they able to cheat in the first place? If it's a security issue, maybe Relic should lock down their code/servers better?

I'm genuinely curious. All these news bites about cheaters being banned, and not a lot of information on how/what the cheating entails. Someone clue an old man in! :-)

Sometimes it's just a code issue that can be resolved. Other times, there are performance costs to having server-side checks for certain things, usually relating to movement, aiming, shooting, etc. In other words, things that need to happen quickly and in real-time and still feel good even with a little bit of lag. So for these things the game trusts the client to an extent, which is an opening for a cheat program to alter things.

There's not much you can do about these things without ruining your gameplay. So it becomes an arms race based not on preventing the cheats from being functional, but detecting the cheats and banning the offenders. On the other side, cheat makers have to redo their stuff to try and avoid detection.

His recompense is for me to CONSTANTLY remind people of what he did so that now and years from now they won't forget.

That sounds more like you're paying recompense, not him. This obsession only hurts you, not him.

Next and the subsequent updates were really solid additions. I have no doubt this one will be, as well. Whatever Sean Murray said/did in the past, it's the past. He can't change it, no one can. As long as he and his team do right by the customers going forward, they are doing the most they can.

A person who committed a crime 50 years ago is still guilty today even if they are now an upstanding citizen with a family and a good paying job (I guarantee the victim(s) of the offense still seek justice). Sean Murray's "crime" is he deliberately lied to millions to sell a sham product he knew would not have the things touted. He built his empire on a foundation of lies. There's no justification for any of it just because No Man's Sky has reached its current state.

As you know, I'm not religious, but I was raised a Christian and was taught to forgive people who wrong me, lest a grudge poison my soul. Even though I've been an atheist for decades now, I've kept that principle. No one can erase their past wrongs, and obsessing over it would serve no purpose.

Jan-Michael Vincent had a rough life. I'm surprised he made it to 74. He drank and snorted away a really promising career, got into a drunk driving accident and broke his neck which fucked up his ability to speak, and at some point got an infection which caused him to lose a leg.

If you look at one of his most recent interviews you can see how little was left of him. Managed to keep a marriage going until the end though...

I had to stop watching the interview when they asked him about his visit to Australia. I couldn't stand watching him struggling for words and trying to remember - it was too sad seeing him like this. It seems he was responsible for his own downfall but he definitely paid for it a big price. Damn.

Yeah it was tough to watch. I hope his last few years were kind to him.

Andromeda is a substantially better game than Anthem is. Which is just maddening. If they had put THIS kind of effort for performance capture into Andromeda, and had put this combat into Andromeda, Andromeda would likely have been the best Mass Effect yet. :\

Yep. Super annoying that they half-assed Andromeda just so they could make this less fun game. Mass Effect IP deserves better than that.

Worse reviews than Andromeda by like a full 10 points, and Andromeda was a last minute re-development rush job by a B-team.
