Sounds like the reason TES6 is so far out is because of those two other big projects they are working on. It's not like they were gonna just gonna alternate Fallout and TES games forever.

This is looking good so far. A less cardboard protagonist, and overhaul/expansion of all the game mechanics. More shit is hackable, Quadcopter/RC car thingy. Better meleel. Better parkour, etc. Don't get me wrong, I liked the first game, but it was really just a skeleton in terms of what they could do with the concept.

Aidan Pearce was kind of a lame character. Basically just a boring generic hacker dude on a revenge mission.

This new dude seems to tie into more of the hacktivist shit they hinted at with DEDSEC in the first game. You're less of an outsider and actually have some kind of greater goals.

A few nitpicky things aside, not much to complain about so far.

Ten thousand are killed each year in the US with guns. People like to blame politicians for not doing enough, but the only people to blame are the American public. The politicians absolutely would do more if they thought they could actually get away with it.

The American public is absolutely fine with 10,000 people dying each year from gun violence. We, as a country, apparently see it as an acceptable tradeoff to our freedom to own firearms.

Is that true? I don't know. But the American people will not tolerate extensive gun control measures, and there's nothing the politicians can do to force it on us on a national level.

Even pending appeal this could sink them. If they are forced to put up a supersedeas bond (could be as high as $50 million) it could be enough to put them down. But the court does have the right to forgo making them put up that bond.

Ew. It's using a single 1080p screen. Screen door ahoy. When the Rift was on a single 1080p screen it wasn't too enjoyable.

But we did always expect the PSVR to be the budget product.

I found EverQuest Next and Project 1999 pretty much on the same day.
I think its obvious which of both got my money and is played by me.

Neither because Project 1999 is free?

Took them forever to make the official announcement on this. We've known for a while that this thing was doomed, and the odds were pretty good it was done for when the new company took over.

Smedley liked to throw money at projects, the new company not so much. As soon as this company changed hands and Smedley was put on a tight budget, this game was done.

This is actually a pretty fun game from the open beta shit I played. I'm a bit backlogged at the moment or I'd buy it.

Also I dunno what what's his face was on about with the "naive buyers" shit when this is probably the most transparent launch we've seen in a long time. Literally no one should feel ambushed by the game they bought. All the information and even available hands-on play were available well before launch.

Because the photos were on a digital device and he used a digital device to photograph them, he's now facing felony computer crimes makes no sense.

Not true. Aggravated voyeurism is a felony in South Carolina and applies to the distribution of any unlawfully obtained photos, recordings, or files regardless of whether an electronic device is involved.

Stealing photos out of her purse and then distributing them would still be felony aggravated voyeurism in South Carolina.

We disagree on what it means for the phone to be unlocked, then. The door on a phone is the lock screen, it either opens to anyone who turns the knob or it requires a key in the form of a PIN, password, gesture, thumbprint, whatever. If the phone is left unlocked, that door has been left ajar.

A door left hanging open you can look inside without turning the knob. Hell, you can see whats going on without really forming the intent to look inside. A stray glance might be all you need to see something embarrassing. An unlocked phone still requires you to pick up the phone, turn the screen on, and then go digging if you want to see anything incriminating. It's not something you can do on accident.

Also important, you can't even know if the phone is locked until you've already grabbed it. Meaning the intent to access the phone precedes finding out that it's unlocked. There is no "innocently stumbling across an open door and looking in" in this situation like the way you're trying to paint it.

Even if your analogy held up, taking photos of things and distributing them with malicious intent basically erases any sort of claim that might justify looking through an unlocked phone.

I just don't understand why you think it should be legal to rummage through other peoples belongings looking for embarrassing shit to distribute.

Her phone was unlocked and he took pictures of the pictures on her phone with his phone, and he's being charged with Computer Crimes?

Contrary to what some people here believe, leaving something unlocked doesn't confer consent to rifle through it. If the photos were plainly displayed in the open without him having to actually touch the phone then it would be a different story.

But accessing someones property and then proceeding to share what you find with malicious intent breaks numerous laws in just about every jurisdiction, whether it be a phone, a car, a home, or an office.

jacobvandy wrote on Mar 6, 2016, 21:36:

Don't be dumb, that's obviously theft (and if the door is closed, it's still technically B&E). With that analogy, the door was OPEN and the kid took a look inside.

Actually if you're going to use that analogy then it's a closed, but unlocked door. It's still illegal to enter someones unlocked home or car and snoop around. There is zero legal precedent that states unlocked personal property laying around confers consent to search that property.

didnt a bunch of team leaders leave bioware a few months ago as well? not looking good

Bit of an overstatement.

A senior development director left. They basically write up schedules and what not. It's not really a position where a project is left in disarray or ruined if they change hands. It's essentially a logistics position.

The lead writer leaving is more interesting, but that's not really critical either. Someone could easily pick up and resume that work. And it would be hard for the writing on Mass Effect to get any worse anyway.

Other than that, I haven't heard of anyone else of note leaving.

Not really seeing much for me in the Vive. I'm not interested in standing up and walking 3 inches around the cluttered glorified closet my computer sits in so that advantage is kind of void. I'm also not really interested in using some weird controllers for gimmicky games. I just want the head tracking and immersion.

Just not enough to justify the huge price premium over the Rift. Even the Rift is probably too expensive to justify at the moment. We'll see what reviews of the final products say.
