The people who are really running this shitshow are not on TV or in any government or subject to Putin or his cronies. Those are the people you should be concerned about...

Who would that be? The Illuminati?

Why the bait? Or do you deny something that Forbes publishes yearly? I don't fall for conspiracy theories. Here is the Forbes 500 list, so you can have a look at it yourself.

Forbes 500

If you don't believe that these people are ultimately the ones influncing politics worldwide (mostly through US policy, where campaign and lobby dollars is the name of the game) I've got a bridge to sell you, dirt cheap.

It just seemed to be where you were going with it. But yes, money is the universal fuel. You can't do anything without money and you can do the most when you have the most money. I'm not really sure why you're even trying to argue with me to be honest, as you've said nothing I disagree with. I just pointed out that Putin's buddies over in Russia own a wacky variety of shit. Diversity like crazy.

Will keep an eye on this. As someone already mentioned, former Mozilla CTO/CEO is running this project apparently. Firefox served me well back in the day, so the guy must have at least some clue what he's doing.

Anyone who pretends to know what Kojima's thinking and intentions are is delusional. Kojima is a weird motherfucker and no one knows what makes him tick.

I'd really like a game with the ship stuff from Black Flag and Rogue but with the ground game of Syndicate.

It's actually really funny how many things Putin's oligarch cronies own.

Did you know that Daybreak games, formerly SOE, got purchased by a company that is a subsidary of a Russian conglomerate run by one of Putin's buddies?

Christ harlock, you're such a douchebag

I see it's the cool thing to do to rag on this chick, but she does have a point in that video games over-sexualizing women. Some of the ways games cater to teenager or early twenties guys is truly pathetic.

For instance, that character in MGS. Dunno her name, never played the series

Who cares? If game developers like making that shit, more power to 'em. Especially if people are buying the games. As long as marketing guys aren't coming in and forcing them to add it, it's cool with me.

What I'm not cool is pretentious smug douchebaggery where guys pretend they are above being titillated, or people trying to shame game developers for any sexualized content.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey will be sued for breach of contract.

The plot thickens. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

Of course, FB came into this well after the fact, so not sure why they are a defendant?

Never heard of this company so Facebook lawyers will probably keep them tied up in court forever and then some settlement will be reached.

That Hero's Song thing seems interesting. 2D ARPG aimed for more hardcore players, and hey whats this? You can actually host your own servers. What a novel concept.

It's also interesting to see Smedley doing something that doesn't promise the world. This looks like a project that could actually conceivably be made.

Another anime titty simulator with a shitty localization and the absolutely stellar (lol) support of NCSoft. It's a rough time to be an MMO fan. There's just nothing even remotely good on the horizon. It's all a bunch of tiny studio titles that won't happen and Asian imports that are no good.

Plenty of titles with kinda-MMO-ish online modes, but nothing like a true feature rich persistant world.

Seems pretty optimistic but maybe they are counting on success with Rift and Vive translating into a lot of cheaper shitty models being shovelled out and consumed by the millions.

Let's hope it's not like Prometheus. There's plenty of opportunity for a great movie in the AC lore.

I actually really enjoyed Prometheus, but yes, this is one of those game series that has enough meat on its bones to actually make a decent movie if the producers put in the right amount of effort.

Another thing they have going for them is that they are not actually adapting a game, but rather making a movie set in the same universe. They don't have to worry about nailing down the personality (or lack thereof) of a sketchily written game character, or condensing a plot that played out over multiple games down into 2 hours.

They've got a very solid lead actor. Some great supporting actors (Jeremy Irons, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams). Their cinematographer is the guy who did True Detective season 1.

Some downsides: The director doesn't seem to have done much of note, nor the writers.

We'll see what happens.

We need more great people like MLK Jr these days. People who can do more than rally their base, but reach across divides and get people together.

There is no dialogue on real issues today. It's always just people splitting into two camps and slinging mud, and nothing is ever accomplished.

This dynamic, of course, favors the status quo.

Seattle Carolina game was tough to watch in the first half but really exciting in the second. Was worried it was going to be a snoozer shutout.

The only really bad part about the game was Cam Newton waffling between tantrum throwing and being a smug douchebag. The best part was one of his tantrums accidentally getting caught on audio.

Sounds to me more like you're a Microsoft shill making up stories to get people to upgrade (see I can make some really dumb assumptions, too).
But, seriously, this always reminds me of those people who are completely blind fanbois. Like when a game comes out that has a few dozen reproducible bugs that will always happen to every single person using the program regardless of hardware because it is a software issue but then you have people like you here who will claim that the game has zero bugs and is running flawless 100% of the time. Whatever. If it helps you sleep better at night then nightie night with your flawless Win 10!

When a game comes out as a buggy mess, everyone knows about it instantly. Meanwhile, Windows 10 has been out a while and the only articles we've seen about it on Blue's are about the privacy issues.

Where are the articles about Windows 10 being a buggy incompatible mess as alleged by some folks in this thread? Why aren't they submitting those articles to Blue to post?

Do the weenies who think this stuff up love the idea of someone collecting all this information on what they are doing?

That's the thing. Data collection is a lot less scary when you're an insider who knows precisely what data is being collected and what is being done with it.

A lot of peoples problem with it is the uncertainty. They aren't technically savvy enough to know precisely what data is being collected, and don't have access to what exactly is being done with it. And if MS tries to reassure them, they'll just believe that Microsoft is lying and that it's all much more insidious than Microsoft is leading them to believe. That may be true, or not. This is exacerbated by clickbait articles.

But some guy at MS actually involved in creating this stuff actually knows whats being collected. And if it's innocuous metrics crap used to increase the usability of the OS, they probably aren't too worried about it and don't think twice about implementing it.

Ask anyone in this thread what data MS is collecting in Windows 10 and what they are doing with it and you'll get all kinds of different answers. People are afraid because they don't know and because they are prone to just assuming that MS is archiving their entire browsing history and sending it to the FBI, who will then forward it on to their spouses and employers before killing their dog, selling their children into slavery, and disappearing them.

Personally, I take a very pragmatic approach to privacy. Until there's something concrete to worry about, I don't worry about it. There are already so many "privacy violations" in my life that I can't do anything about without going off to live in the woods. Worrying about a few extra is just a lot of emotional energy I don't want to expend.
