Congressional term limits are something that sound nice but actually end up being shite. Revolving door newbies are cheap and disposable to buy off, and have no incentive to get along with anyone. If you want these people gone, vote them out.

I'll continue to kill hordes of virtual cops in GTA instead. It's very cathartic after watching the news.

Nice. I didn't buy this for PS4 because I assumed this was coming eventually.

Why would I ever buy another Bioware game after this? I bought Andromeda because based on what I saw, I would enjoy it. And I did.

But if they are just going to leave things hanging, well, fuck them. I don't care if I had fun, if there's no proper conclusion.

Sad state of patents when someone can patent a 1 click operation. What a bunch of idiots reside in the patent office. Bezos should be banned for life from ever getting a patent again.
Don't blame Bezos. He's just playing by the rules as written. There are so many bad patents out there. Blame the Repubs for defunding the patent office.

That you play by shitty rules doesn't excuse you from being shitty yourself. No one forced him to.

Look at it from their perspective. If they didn't patent it, someone else would have, and probably muscled them into some enormously costly deal to allow them to use it. That's as good as putting a gun to his head, in terms of the business perspective.

This will be interesting. Will Bannon continue to shill for Trump, or does his statement that "the Trump presidency we fought for is over" mean he will use Breitbart to undermine Trump?

The Breitbart set, being rabid anti-semitic nationalists, have always been upset with Trump having so many Jews or "Globalists" in his orbit.

6th episode leak was HBO's spanish chanel pressing the button too early.

Yeah, I believe the Spanish HBO is also owned by HBO, so no even an outside firm to blame.

7/06 was an inside job.

Do people have any opinions on multifan cooler designs vs. single fan blowers? I prefer multiple fans myself.

The only time you should use a blower design is in a small form factor cases where larger coolers may prove problematic or exhaust too much hot air into the small case. My little NCase M1 is better off with a blower, for example.

100 year old fruit cake found in Antarctica's Oldest Building.

I'm not that impressed honestly. After all, we've got a 70 year old fruit cake running the US right now.

And it's a rare Cheetoh flavored fruit cake too.

You'd have to be dumb to be flying your drone over a military base. You'd have to be double dumb to fly it low enough that any of them could get a bead on it. Its not like they are going to setup a flak engagement zone up there to get a tiny quadcopter.

I honestly don't give a fuck about these types of microtransactions. In fact, bring it on. If you can milk the idiots dumb enough to buy them instead of milking me, go for it. People flipped a lid about the shit you could buy in Mankind Divided, but lo and behold the game threw that shit at you for free and didn't pressure you at all.

And if they turn a 30 hour game into 100 hour grindfest if you don't buy said microtransactions, are you going to just grind it out?

Depends on what the reward for that time spent is. If it's not worth my time then I won't bother with it and won't feel bad for not having done so.

You could easily flip it around and say people are turning a 100 hour game into a 30 hour one by buying shortcuts. It just depends on the ratio of time invested to reward gained, or fun to be had.

So far I've purchased precisely zero things from any in-game shop, in any game that wasn't an MMO. And I've never felt at all like I was missing out because of it. So, if some weak-willed schmucks want to pay these companies so that I don't have to, so be it.

More features are always all well and good but the money to make them has to come from somewhere.
You do realize that when we buy the game, we give them money, don't you?

That $50-60 we've been giving them for 30 years means less and less every year, while the cost to make the games goes up every year. For a while, they offset this by simply selling more copies because the gamer base was growing. Then they had to actively make the games more accessible to sell even more.

But we don't see those huge jumps in AAA gamers anymore. So, where are they making up the extra money if they aren't raising the price of the game itself? Microtransactions. Or 'Deluxe' editions that have some shitty toy or some other useless stuff that will get hardcore fans to buy it but without making most gamers feel like they are missing anything.

People hate sticker shock. They hate to see prices go up. So this leaves them with really only alternative strategies for making more money that are easier for consumers to swallow.

Fucking fantastic episode. Perhaps the best one yet. I'm even more hyped to watch it in non-shit quality on Sunday. (This is a 360p leak from the place that does the censoring for India/Pakistan markets)

Just Cause 3 was a HORRIBLE disappointment after the EPIC Just Cause 2. This despite the fact that it played better, controlled better, had better vehicle physics, and pretty much every gameplay hook was better than in JC2.

Every single thing in the world was just copy/paste. Everything looked exactly the same, no variation, no cool areas to discover, no areas that were put in just for the sake of making the world look nice, nothing.

Total 100% failure in open world design.

Download it for free, play it tonight for a few hours, and you will have seen everything there is to see in JC3.

To be honest, I don't remember JC2's world being any better. They are both extremely large worlds with a lot of nothing to see.

GTAO lost me when they do very little to crack down on exploiters and people using cheat tools. Can't justify spending a dime more when the devs let their game be the wild west. They could force use of punkbuster or something similar but don't. I suppose as long as the mindless kiddies keep using daddys credit card to pump money into the game there is no real motivation for RS to do much aside from lip service.

I had abandoned GTAO for the same reason. But I found a little community that uses clever gaming of the R* matchmaking and vetting of friends lists (along with a few firewall rules) to keep sessions mostly free of randoms. Since then I've had a blast.
