Cheap out and make multiplayer P2P and then sue people who exploit that. Why not just spend money on servers instead of lawyers?

I'm sure that Jared Kushner, who Trump put in charge of solving the opioid crisis, will have this fixed very soon.
Will he do this from his jail cell or does he qualify for work release?

Good question. I guess it depends on whether saying you're doing something and then not doing anything at all qualifies as work.

I'm tempted to grab a random assortment of IGN reviews from different authors to see if they contain plagiarized material. There are plenty of services that offer sophisticated plagiarism search engines. If true, this may reveal that Filip Miucin isn't an isolated incident but instead is part of a "cabal" at IGN where a large percentage of staff or the entire organization is engaged in this kind of nonsense. Wouldn't that be something?

I spent the last hour and change scanning a range of IGN Switch, PC, and PS4 reviews for plagiarism and other than some random sites copying the content (with a source mention), all of them are original and not plagiarized. I can't speak to ALL of IGN, but it does appear that content originality is the rule and not the exception. Filip was an anomaly. Going forward, IGN is likely to increase their vetting process, and think twice about hiring a random Youtube personality to author content for their service. At the very least, ensure the content on their Youtube channel is original.

The problem is that in many cases they plagiarize a Youtuber's words and put them in a text review. There's not a way IGN can vet this on their end because obviously they don't have a transcript of every gaming Youtube video ever created. Similarly, a plagiarism search engine isn't going to find it either.

It's almost as if when something with literally no value gets valuated at nearly 20000 dollars a unit, it's probably something that's long since overdue for a correction.

Can we not bring Star Citizen into this, Creston?

The hard part is bringing it back down in an organized fashion on a runway which he apparently failed at quite miserably. Seems like he should have studied navigation and landing procedures more thoroughly.

FYI this guy committed suicide intentionally as evidenced by the ATC recordings. He never had any intent of safely landing the plane. He intentionally smashed it into some island away from populated areas.

This was pretty pathetic and sad to watch on twitch.

More sad and pathetic than reading you bag on streamers who probably roll in the cash compared to your food stamp ass?

At any rate, this is the first expansion I've not played at launch, and probably won't end up playing at all. Kicked the WoW habit a year or so back.

News Comments > Bethesda Blocked Game Sale Because of "New" Designation

Some people are idiots and would contact Bethesda and blame them if codes aren't working. Bethesda would respond and say they've been used. The person should then go back to the seller and/or Amazon. And be told so.

What they're trying to cover for is so damn rare, that someone would be angry at them. Almost as rare as someone re-shrinkwrapping a game.

Yeah it's a scenario that sounds reasonable, but can't actually be that common. So lets say there are people out there re-shrinkwrapping games after taking... whatever out of them? How long are they going to maintain a good rating on Amazon? How many people will buy from nobodies on Amazon instead of some reputable seller?

And even if someone does get scammed, they are going to get a refund off Amazon or some shit, not call Bethesda and ask for help.

There are a lot of reasons why this scenario, while possible, probably isn't that common. The real "tell" for me is that Bethesda seems to be the only one who has this problem, and they have a history of being extremely litigious. Makes it very hard to take them seriously here.

If it's still in its original unopened packaging, its new. Fuck you Bethesda. No one buys your shitty excuse, because everyone who is shopping on Amazon knows what "New" means.

Trump's tariffs are a great litmus test to see which Trump supporters are mentally retarded, and which are just partisan hacks.

The tariffs are objectively bad for the US. No one on the right or left wants tariffs. It's bad for everyone. Bad for Dems, bad for Reps. Bad for the consumer, bad for businesses, bad for politicians trying to line their pockets.

Being in favor of these tariffs is like being in favor of taking a hot poker to the urethra. You're either masochistic, or need to be institutionalized.

The tariffs are nothing more than Trump once again finding out some unilateral power he has and then using it just because he can.

Russia can you just nuke us and end this already? I'm tired.

I don't really have a strong opinion one way or the other, to me DRM is just invisible most of the time anyway. I do find it amusing how anti-DRM Blue's used to be and now everyone's in favor of putting as much DRM on as possible as long as it keeps cheapskates from getting free games.

I guess the industry wore customers down to the point where it's just accepted now?

Sort of interesting. Not usually a fan of heavy curation for this kind of stuff but I'll look at what they put up when it goes live. Nothing to lose really since I've already got Discord up all the time.

Forgive an old fart for asking but how does Discord interact with Steam/Origin/etc? It can show everyone what I'm playing cross-client? Does it do cross-client chat or just through their own app? If I'm using Discord and someone else is only on Steam, can I message them through Discord? As more and more of these stupid launchers proliferate from publishers, I find something like this more attractive. I had something similar in the past but it would always break because they used unofficial client hooks or something so whenever something updated they would need to fix it manually.

I should probably just download it and try it but I keep getting busy with house projects. What I really want is an iMessage clone for gaming on Windows. Apple gets a lot of shit but iMessage is fucking great.

I'm actually not sure about all that. It has integration with Steam but I've never tried it so I don't know what all it can do. (I tend to be hesitant about linking together a bunch of accounts) Even without integration you can have it show what game you're playing, though. And that works for at least Steam, Origin and uPlay that I've seen.
