There's no getting around that this game has some shitty animations, but honestly I was expecting as much. Every single one of Bioware's games have had animations that were subpar for the time they were released, and plenty of stand out examples of characters/animations that were especially fucked up.

Hell, even outside of Bioware, in critically acclaimed games. The much circlejerked Witcher 3 had all kinds of animation monstrosities. Don't even get me started on Roach. Fucking thing doesn't even exist in Euclidean space.

I don't know about racist overtones with the game but the character models are pretty ugly, is that some sort of SJW effect?

One of the gameplay designers is a pretty bad Twitter racist. One of those self-hating dudes who just sits around talking shit about white people and men all day. The guy is about as brown as a white guy who went to the tanning salon and could pass for white himself so it's especially insincere and stupid. Your typical privileged hipster pretending to know anything about racism and adversity.

But he isn't on the art department, nor is he even a lead in his own department. Official Bioware stance is that the reason for a lack of paler skin options is a limitation with their head scanning tech. There's a limit to how pale they can make the skin before they get artifacting or something. Whether that's true or not, none of us can say. I'm a software engineer but I don't know much about graphics programming and even less about their exact workflow.

H1Z1? Cereal?

I will bet that H1Z1 has more people that tried it for one day and stopped than any other game out there currently.

Playing right now: 38,612
Peak Today: 110,352

I dunno what this "King of the Hill" version is but it seems very popular. 3rd most popular played game on Steam today, behind only Dota2 and CSGO. It's all time peak and today's peak are the same... and it's not on sale or having a free weekend either.

Funny that a few posts below this one from the Game Developers awards:

Best Design
Overwatch (Blizzard Entertainment)

But hey Luke doesn't like it.

Well it is Luke. He's determined to complain incoherently about "manga/mangos" in every Blizzard thread and writes like he has a few too many chromosomes.

I think he was raped by a mango or something. That's the only thing that can explain the PTSD he gets from anything with a color hue that isn't brown or a shade of gray.

Glad to see AMD putting out a decent CPU. It's still not really a gamers CPU judging by the benchmarks, but more competition is a good thing and maybe they can improve on that gaming performance.

Twitch (part of Amazon) has a lot of reach in gaming and the potential to put some serious competitive heat on Steam. Hopefully it works out well so that Valve has to step up their game.

I'm not a fan of a single centralized curation of products offered, primarily because I don't trust it to not eventually mutate into outright censorship, or worse, collusion to promote or bury certain games. It would, by Valve's very nature, be an opaque process.

I have 500+ games in my Steam catalog and only a small portion turned out to be shitty. And actually a good number of those weren't conscious purchase choices but gifts from friends who wanted someone to play multiplayer with them in a game I otherwise wouldn't have in my library.

Yes, there's a ludicrous amount of garbage on Steam. There's a ludicrous amount of shit-not-worth-buying in just about every store. The only place you can avoid it is brick & mortar and that's not because of curation, it's because of limited physical space.

If they want to check that a game actually launches and plays either to its conclusion or a couple hours in without serious issues? That's fine. But anything other than an assessment of the technical state of and basic facts about the game is a judgement call that I'd rather make myself, or use aggregrate user reviews, or better yet, a YouTuber that has the same taste in games as me.

Yes, there are times Steam reviews don't give you the full story if you just look at the "Positive" or "Negative". But if you actually go and read the reviews, you can get a sense of whether the game actually deserves the rating its getting or if it's just an Internet hivemind bombing the reviews up or down.

I dunno, that sounds about right. I'm tired of non-violent offenders being threatened with or receiving decades of punishment. After his 9 months, this guys life is basically ruined, since he'll be a felon. Good luck getting a job, an apartment, etc. Hopefully those draconian, post-punishment restrictions won't force him back into crime. So much for "rehabilitation."

I agree that it seems about right (Though I don't agree with felony charges for this type of crime). Honestly, these types of criminals are the least needing of a lengthy sentence.

The length of prison sentences has a pretty miniscule effect on deterrent value for many types of crime. This is because a lot of crimes are committed by people who aren't thinking about consequences in the first place, often due to substance abuse, or crimes of passion. Some cracked out mofo robbing a convenience store isn't going to care if the potential prison sentence is 2 years or 2000 years. He's not even thinking about it.

But some hacker? Easily spooked out of a life of crime with a minor sentence. They thought they weren't going to get caught, and didn't even necessarily consider what they were doing a "real" crime. No need to waste taxpayer dollars housing this shitter for a million years, just give him a taste of prison and be done with it.

I don't even support felony charges for these types of criminals, provided they aren't doing anything to threaten lives or disrupt national infrastructure.

But in general I have a very poor outlook on the US criminal justice system. It just doesn't work as well as what many other countries have.

Yeah, it means they did us a big favor by revealing betrayal by our own government. Unless you're a Fascist, loyalty to the nation as a whole is more important than loyalty to the government, should the two ever be in opposition. Which they frequently are.

The real traitors are people like you. Disgusting people who will excuse any government misconduct like it's their duty and believe they are servants of their government and not the other way around.
