... or regional pricing is designed to maximize the amount of money a company can wring out of each individual market. Do you live under a rock? Do you honestly think this is generosity on the part of publishers?

Generosity? Not at all. Like I said, a full price game wouldn't see many sales in these economies, so a lower price means far more sales and more profit than they would otherwise make. The lower prices benefit the consumer, but the intention is obviously to make as much money as possible. My point is that it isn't publishers fucking over poor people in this situation, it's gamers in wealthy economies.

Regional prices are designed to make games affordable for poorer economies where a full price game would not see many sales, and where they have to compete with bootleg copies being sold openly. People in wealthy countries using a VPN to get a cheaper price from poor countries is just another way for wealthy people to ruin a good thing for poor people to benefit themselves. If you're okay with that, fine, but at least recognize it.

Piracy is arguably the lesser of two evils. Sure, it's one less full price domestic sale either way, but at least you're not shitting on some other gamer on the other side of the world just to save a buck.

This reddit post felt somewhat fitting. A male is complaining that women don't act the way he demands they do, and none have any interest in him and find him creepy and off-putting. Virtually every response tells him that he, and his attitude, are the problem. His views are outdated, his demands extreme, and he doesn't offer anything in return near reaching those demands.

He packages it up into Christianity, saying the Bible tells him to expect this, but he lashes out at everyone telling him he's outdated as "liberals," so the religion is just a cover for the political views. Pretty much all the responses come from Christians, so the religion isn't the problem.

It just felt relevant here. A man, making extreme demands of a female, confused and angry at why people find him offputting, and incapable of understanding that he needs to change his attitude and his actions.

Roses are red. Violets are blue. That guy's an idiot and nobody here (I bet my entire ballsack) disagrees.

You forgot about Kxmode didn't you. Say goodbye to your ballsack, hope you weren't using it.

Compression was nasty on these videos and it especially wrecked the stormy sea scenes, but it looks about like what you'd expect Northern Europe about this era to look like.

You and I both know that if some person somewhere would tweet the name of Person X #metoo, that person will immediately live in hell.

It's really not that simple. You can't just make a Twitter account, toss out someones name and put #MeToo on there. First, you'll probably get banned for doxxing if the person isn't a public figure. Second, no one is going to give a shit what an egg with 5 followers, all bots, has to say. If it was that easy, every last streamer or public figure would be #MeToo'd by trolls by now.

I've lost count of the times I've been told to reject a young student for a position simply because of their race and gender.

I don't know exactly what the context is here, but if you're in the US you need to report this immediately. It violates various civil rights laws to reject an applicant for a job based on race or gender. You could even be found personally liable if the person were to sue.

Uhm, have you missed the Ridiculously Stupid Memo of this Era? People confuse equality of opportunity with equality of outcome. They want the latter. In this way, rejection because of race and gender is inevitable. Report immediately? Don't be silly.

It's not silly. It's highly illegal to reject people based on their race or gender and if you have proof, they will get the hammer dropped on them. That guy said he was told to reject an applicant because of their race and gender, so I assume it was explicit enough that they didn't feel they could hire the person. In fact he said it had happened countless times, so it's a pattern of behavior at his employer. Not reporting it is irresponsible.

So, how soon before this is Law Breakered? (Law Broken?)

I see that the graphic engine looks about 10 years old. I assume this is intentional to support a greater number of playable systems and/or legacy consoles. They've also removed gore so the game won't trip censors in certain countries (like China) and also to be "children-safe". The verticality/jump pad aspect reminds me of Q3 or UT. The default characters look pretty generic, but I assume they're keeping all their cool outfits for that sweet MT ca$h.

Overall, it looks like a soulless, engineered, money-making product.

Gotta agree. It doesn't have any character at all.

The 2011 season was really great. Mike Judge still knows what he's doing and these characters are still relevant. Glad to see they are getting back into it. I know they are doing a spinoff of one of Daria's friends, but they need to bring back Daria too!
