After what these guys did in Human Revolution and Thief, I'll be waiting to hear from you guys.

Why wait? I can't see any scenario, based on what we've seen so far, where someone who thought Human Revolution was trash would like this game. It's an extremely similar game. You might as well just forget it.

Exactly.
It like intravenous addicts blaming hypodermic needle manufacturers for their addiction.

Drug addicts is a good comparison. Except needle manufacturers are not. Those manufacturers have no ability to stop drug addicts and drug dealers from using their products to harm themselves and others. Since they can't do anything about it, there is no expectation of them to do anything about it.

Valve has no such excuse. They can shut down these sites en masse via C&D letters or legal action without breaking a sweat. And that's probably what's going to happen now.

There's no reason Valve needs to be complicit in creating the next generation of degenerate gamblers.

Glad to see they are finally doing something about this.

There are regulations and barriers surrounding gambling for good reason, and there are cases to be made that these operations are already illegal in some jurisdictions.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

Nice try, but even you must know it`s just a load of old balls. Care to name some of this "gay weeaboo stuff" and places where these alleged "girls and women" gather to discuss it? I mean, places as popular as the chan/reddit equivalents?

Is it as real as those subway men-only carriages?

I dunno. Look up fujoshi and find out where they hang out. Bonus points for typing "yaoi" into Google.

I read your comment earlier, and thought you had a good point (perhaps could have been worded better). It probably would have gotten a different reaction if the protagonists were men.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

In either case you've got a group of people upset for puritanical reasons. Insecure tumblrinas/SJWs don't like titties or basically any straight or lesbian porn anime stuff and spend a lot of time mocking people who do. Then you have other people who are the opposite. Liking the straight or lesbian stuff, mocking the fans of the gay stuff.

If the theory is "You couldn't make a gay version of this and have any success.", I don't think that holds up. Certainly the target audience isn't as large, but there is a significant one out there.

It's because the focus is getting the next TES out the door for Xmas.

Xmas 2017, maybe.

Judging by what they said around E3, even Christmas 2017 is a long shot.

I forgot how many expert economists we had on this site.

Anyway, this gambling shit is incredibly exploitative. I'm all for personal responsibility but at some point you have to put some level of protection in, or you incentivize companies to actively erode peoples sense of responsibility through psychological tricks and whatever else.

The loophole of virtual items is going to need to get dealt with at some point.

Yeah it's not 'everyone' (congrats on being anal retentive), but when your top people are leaving it does NOT bode well. But when all your top talent leaves (especially the guy who 'fixed' Diablo 3) it's not a good thing.

You say it's not good, but it's not necessarily bad either. It just is. Blizzard's been around a while, and has had a lot of top guys move on to other things, only to be replaced by other guys.

I don't really see this as any kind of portent, except a portent that Diablo 3 is done. The game is winding down development and they are starting another project. That's exactly the time you expect to see a lot of routine staff turnover.

Is it really a sign of doom that someone who's been working on Diablo for 5-10 years might not want to work on it for another 5-10?

Not a bad time to leave, considering they are between projects on Diablo. Boyarsky recently left as well to join up with Obsidian. Hopefully the new director for Diablo will learn from some of the mistakes made in the launch of D3.

If anyone can do a decent reboot, it's Netflix.

They meddle a lot less with content than old school networks, and they aren't paid for by traditional advertising, so they have more freedom with regards to target audience.

In the end creators of a series on Netflix have vastly more freedom than creators elsewhere. Of course, your series is still only as good as the people creating it.

They describe it as part family drama part space adventure, so it's unlikely to be anything too gritty.

I'm really wondering why these guns were the way they were.

There was enough changed about them that clearly the artist put significant time and effort into them. Nearly as much as making a brand new weapon. The textures are new, and like 75% of the geometry of the weapon is different. Why didn't he go all the way? It seriously wouldn't have taken that much longer.

13. So the last two seasons are supposedly going to be shorter.

Heh, the characters in question have plot armor in the books too. ASOIAF has never been a "kill main characters for no fucking reason to shock the audience" type of thing. Every significant character death drives the story forward and sets pieces in place. It's not The Walking Dead.

Certain characters were never actually at risk because they are required players in the endgame. The longer the series has gone on, it's become clear to people who those required players actually are.

So yeah, the plot armor has become more conspicuous. But it's actually worse in the books in my opinion. In the books GRRM hints at things in subtle ways that you can't really do on TV. In doing so, it's even more clear who the endgame characters are.

There are only two solutions to online harassment:

1) Ignore it.
2) Only hang out in safe space bubbles where unified ideology prevents the conflict that leads to harassment.

There is no technical or legal solution that will protect anyone.

As an aside, I have zero sympathy for "harassment victims" who are only getting harassed because they spend 20 hours a day on Twitter actively calling out and antagonizing people. You know who isn't getting harassed? People who don't talk shit on social media.

I do not have a social media presence. I have no Facebook, and I have no Twitter. I do not have a blog where I put my shitty opinions on a pedestal. And my life is better for it. I don't miss out on anything of value.

The NRA goes to great lengths to make the public believe that "gun control" only means "taking away guns" and it really doesn't.

Yeah, the NRA is full of shit, and measures to reform sales and registration of firearms are a good idea. We should do that. But I personally don't see those as meaningful steps towards reducing gun violence. There are just too many guns floating around out there changing hands in parking lots and private property in ways that law enforcement would have a problem actually dealing with.

Do you think that sales and registration reforms can significantly reduce gun violence in the way that people want? Most of what I've seen proposed is sensible legislation, but it's also a bit toothless. Again, I'm not saying these are bad ideas or shouldn't be done, but that we need to broaden the conversation a bit.
