What an awesome turnaround for Sean Murray and Hello Games. Those folks deserve lots of credit for doing the right thing.

Does their doing the right thing now justify their not doing the right thing in 2016? They only exist today because they sold a ton of copies from preorders and whatnot based on a TON of promised features that were not in the game at launch. It's unethical, and the guy has never apologized for doing it. Sean Murray is a shady business man. People are so quick to defend Sean Murray but then jump on Filip Muicin for stealing Boomstick Gaming's Dead Cells review. It's hypocritical to say the least.

Actually fixing the problems with the game is a much better apology than some empty insincere words. Short of going back in time and not lying in the first place, I can't see anything else they could do. I bought the game, refunded it, and then got it on sale after it was fixed.

I'm not sure why I'm supposed to never forgive Sean Murray, when I've forgiven much worse from other people.

I guess he should just quit trying, then.

Some people believe that if you fuck up, you're required to leave the game industry, or preferably, commit ritual suicide to restore honor to family.

Releasing free improvements and updates to a game whose launch you fucked up? Completely unacceptable...uh... for some reason.

I'm going to get this because it's Stellaris and they could release an aggressive cactus with the name STELLARIS on it and I would buy it and put it in my house because I am a sucker.

Still no kids and priest joke? I'm disappointed.

You have to wait for the Catholicism++ or Jehovah's Witness DLCs for that.

Ah yes, Rockstar. Milking their fans for every cent, and their employees for every waking moment of their lives.

BTW Buy Shark Cards.

Gigabit with a 1TB cap, huh... So if you actually use that speed for anything, you'll hit your limit in a few hours. Then, BAM, Comcast showers you in fees.

Yeah, you get 2 hours of actually maxing out your speed and you have to make it last all month. For $105. Jesus christ. It's almost a dollar a minute.

Paul Allen just passed away. As a Washingtonian it's really sad to see him go. He dumped an absurd amount of wealth into our state, and Seattle specifically, funding so many great things.

If the US military budget was about security, it would only cover our nuclear stockpile and delivery systems. The rest of our military is for wars of aggression and interventionist bullshit. The big "End the world" button is the only contribution the military makes to security. The rest is handled by the intelligence agencies.

How dense are you? The bias was coded in to begin with. The machine does not "think" for itself. That would be magic. Do even grasp the biological concept of how thought even works?

So you're admitting humans are magic?

AI doesn't exist. If said bias existed it was because of the variables it was programed with and nothing more.

Yes, because it's impossible to have a computer that iterates on its own code according to some set of goals and might come to unanticipated results. Humans are created by GOD and powered by MAGIC that can't be put into a machine!

So I got an invite to this Google Project Stream thing. Basically its cloud gaming or whatever with free AC: Odyssey until January.

The latency is low enough that combat timing isn't an issue. The graphics aren't really maxed out and 30fps(?) lock is really the main downside. I don't see this being a preferred option for any of us who keep our gaming rigs relatively up to date.

But if I had a potato computer, this would be a very tempting option vs. buying a console. Plus hey, technically I'm playing a AAA title in a browser and not having a 100% shitty experience.

Bandwidth usage peaks around 20mbps but it's not steady, there's definitely some clever bandwidth saving measures going on that lower usage when there's not much going on.

Microsoft isn't nearly as micromanagerial as EA or some of the other publishers that could have bought Obsidian. Plus I guess they could stop panhandling to fund games.

That's because it's not Dr. Who anymore, it's Dr. Snowflake and the SJW patrol.

What's wrong with a female doctor?

Absolutely nothing. New Dr is great, and easy on the eyes to boot Look her up in something called "Venus." She has a lovely pair of talents.
