"Dying" is overstating it, but it's definitely on a down turn. Story-driven AAA experiences are expensive to make, and hard to monetize beyond the initial box cost, and they are only getting more expensive.

I think there's life left in AAA single-player games. Not every developer has a specialty in MP, or even any interest. So... yeah.. not dying, but definitely going to continue to be a smaller slice of the AAA gaming pie.

Just as I thought, nothing. But thanks for verifying that for me.
You did leave an out by using the word routinely so it's perfectly ok to admit that you can't find anything to back up your statement.

So what I'm getting here is that you want me to ask you for citations for every single claim you make in every post you make until the end of time? And then when you waste your time posting links, I can say they aren't good enough? Do you want me to do this retroactively, or just from now on?

I'm not clear on when we switched to only being able to say things that were literal quotes from a peer reviewed journal. You sure as fuck don't post by those rules.

If it wasn't related to death/suicide then cite whatever you want. But if you are going to make such a bold claim about the subject matter, then YES PLEASE, do cite reliable factual studies to back them up.

I wasn't aware that teenagers killing themselves over relationship drama was a bold claim.

Any information you find on why teens commit suicide is going to list a breakup or other relationship issues as a prime reason. And boys die from suicide at a rate 4 times higher than girls.

Many of us probably knew kids personally in high school who attempted suicide. I know at least one guy who attempted suicide myself. His girlfriend lied and said she was pregnant and he was certain his religious parents were going to disown him and he wouldn't get to go to whatever fancy college he was planning on going to. As I recall, (I didn't really keep in touch), everything turned out okay in the end, but that's not always the case.

If I suspected what I said would surprise so many people I'd have lead with the links, and more. I just assumed everyone knew.

Guess it's not as bad as Kxmode insisting the Sun is #FAKENEWS

As much as I hate to say it, CJ is right on this one. These weren't hostile takeovers. I think the only hostile takeover EA has attempted was when they tried to buy Take-Two like ten years ago. And that never even went through, they ended up dropping it.

As far as I know, all their other acquisitions were done with approval of the management of the company they were buying.

In fairness, none of those links say teenage girls are notoriously cruel and routinely drive teenage boys to suicide..

Well yeah, I wasn't directly quoting any particular study. That's just my editorialized understanding of what teenagers are up to these days, based on the available material. It's not like anyone puts citations at the bottoms of their posts.

SOURCE?

You're a literate human being unlike some folks around here, so I'm sure you can Google some research on teenage suicides, and how common it is for some girl-based drama to be the reason some guy tries to kill himself.
Just as i thought.

You really want me to hold your hand for you? Okay. Here are some links about why teens kill themselves.

One
Two
Three

And here are some statistics.

One
Two

Let me know if you need the audiobook version or the special "Cutter Edition" which boils it down to just the headers.

The reverse is also true, though girls succeed in killing themselves less often than boys. (Girls make twice the attempts, but boys die at four times the rate.)

Teenagers are malicious little balls of chaos who turn on each other at the slightest provocation.

Perhaps the teenage version of me was a hornball who would've jumped at anything but I'm glad I was never put in that situation with a teacher. It's not a decision you should have to make. As RedEye said, before people laugh they should consider their reaction if this was their teenage daughter and a male teacher.

Teenage me didn't have a teenage daughter and wouldn't have given a fuck. All I thought about then was video games and getting laid with anything above a 3. As far as being messed up emotionally, it's my experience that a teenage boy is far more likely to get fucked up emotionally by banging a teenage girl than by an adult woman, seeing as how the former are notoriously cruel and routinely drive boys to suicide.

Man I would have loved to bag a teacher in high school. As long as she wasn't trying to blackmail me with bad grades or some shit. Then I'd have to report the bitch.

Dude, ew.

My GF in HS was so much hotter than any teacher I knew. Most of the girls were. And that's not even getting into the power dynamic/teacher mental state/interest difference/life stage, etc.

Homie I'm talking about banging the chick not marrying her and living a healthy relationship. None of that shit would have mattered to teenage me.

There are people here that dislike liberals and/or "SJWs."

Hell, I'm a liberal who dislikes SJWs. Identity politics is toxic at its core. It's inherently flawed because it says that you cannot possibly understand someone unless you share that identity. If they are telling me I can't and will never understand them, then why should I listen to anything they have to say?

There are other toxic elements: the in-group compartmentalizing, purity tests, and a sort of reputation management where you have to say or do the right things or be shunned from your group. The alt-right claims to be against these things, but they are just a new even more vile version of identity politics. Essentially they are SJWs who only care about justice for the white conservative identity.

You can't unify people to get things done if you're too busy splitting into sub-factions and fighting amongst yourselfs in the oppression Olympics. That's where the conservatives have a really unfortunate advantage. The white identity group, if it can be mobilized, holds all the institutional power.

Identity politics works for the right because they lack true diversity, but it doesn't work for us.

That's pretty lame. Matchmaking systems already fail hard enough as it is without adding more reasons for the system to not find you a proper opponent.

It's horrible and tragic. At the same time, it's also kind of funny because the alt-right, MRA, GGer, T_D types love calling everyone leftist pedophiles, so it's a bit fun to see them distance themselves from a guy who used to be influential to them and uses the exact rhetoric they do.

The hypocrisy they exhibit while doing so is pretty astonishing. They cry about Antifa and #PunchANazi saying "It could cause violence! Someones going to get hurt!" but do nothing to acknowledge their own hateful rhetoric's impact on society.

It's no different than some mosque filling young Muslims hungry for meaning in their life with a bunch of hateful garbage. The right wing loves to bitch about that, and then spend their time doing the same thing.

People armed with lies, hate, and bad incentives are very dangerous, regardless of the source of those things.

does anyone else tune out "comedy games" or is it just me?

i think it may be an inherent fault of mine, though. i realized tonight when i was browsing netflix that i never really seek out stand-up, 'funny' movies, etc. like i'll watch it if it's on and have a chuckle but in general i'd rather take in other things if given the choice.

I'm similar. I enjoy my comedy mixed with other stuff. I don't really watch sitcoms or comedy movies. I used to watch a few of the classic 80s sitcoms as a child but mostly just because my parents were watching them.

I like funny games though. There's usually enough gameplay to keep the comedy from getting tired. Haven't been a big South Park watcher for a very long time though, so Fractured Butthole isn't really on the priority list.

Jesus fuck.

That video was like a post apocalyptic movie set or something. I wonder what took them so long to call those engines up from Berkeley. By the time they arrived so much was already gone.

Yeah that's some absolutely stunning shit. I live in the Pacific NW in an area that doesn't really get wildfires. All we have to worry about up here is the occasional volcano, or the Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake that's supposed to be some ridiculous 9.5 whenever it happens. No hurricanes, no tornados, no wildfires. Any kind of extreme weather or natural disaster is pretty rare up here.

Very thankful I don't have to live the nightmare some of those people must be going through.
