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?

Denuvo rocks. Fuck the scummy stealing little pirate fuckfaces with a hot metal rod.

Denuvo games get cracked more easily these days. Not worth the licensing fee and bad PR imo, whatever it is.

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.

More shit to add to the pile.

In short, Alex Jones' lawyer is pushing to get the Sandy Hooks parents addresses made public. There's no reason to do this other than to intimidate them and threaten them with the wrath of his crazy fans. If he's not interested in harassing these families, why does he care if their addresses are public?

I don't really recall seeing any alt-right propaganda on The Escapist? And you all know how much I love to bitch about the alt-reich.

I expect they'll settle to just save time and effort, but you never know. If they push it their comments probably won't meet the standard of libel. It's very hard to make a libel case in the United States.

True. there needs to be provable damages for legal action to be effective. But there needs to be some accountability for all of today's name-calling. Calling someone a member of the KKK could cost the person jobs and business opportunities. So they'd damn well better be a member if you're going to accuse them. The term "alt-right" has garnered the same pejorative power among today's ctrl-left and has been used to attack people's jobs and livelihood. If that person is not a "member" of this amorphous group, then the name-caller should be held accountable. And considering that "alt-right" generally means "someone I disagree with for not being as regressively left wing as I am," it seems like that would be a hard membership to prove.

That amorphous nature works against them more than for them I think. The definition of what "alt right" even is, is very fuzzy, even among those of us on the left. It would be hard to prove that a person knew you weren't alt-right when there isn't a clear definition to begin with and people are working with so many different sets of criteria. Having to prove malice AND knowledge that what they are saying wasn't true is a huge burden.

If I accuse you of being a KKK member but there's no evidence or even insinuation that you've ever attended a KKK rally or worn a ghost cosplay, it's a lot easier to make the case. If I accuse you of being an asshole, it's impossible for it to be libel because it doesn't really have a definition and could mean anything.

EU courts are, if we get really nitpicky, not in any way democratically legitimized.

Interesting. I often under estimate the difference between how the US and EU are setup.
