Its hard to see an upside to this sale, even in humble has stabilized to about average in the bundle department they were still great occasionally.

So far RPS has survived being gobbled up by eurogamer, although they're both the same type of thing.

I remember reading a reddit thread where someone off handedly mentioned dumping thousands of dollars into Path of Exile.

I sort of had the impression it must be some Middle eastern oil baron's kid. It seems completely unreasonable to me, but hey, your money.

Wow just in time!

Actually its a bit of a bummer if Sony's only competition folds, they need Xbox to keep them honest. But man they've been anemic this cycle.

Battlenet client did have some terrible problems maybe 6 mo- 1 year ago with hardware acceleration on their stupid flash shit they force on each games tab.

Its come a long way though, I don't see the performance hit anymore and its way more stable. I still don't let it sit in the background unless I'm using it, but I stopped having issues.

There's always a reservoir of immunity in the population. The black death and spanish flu were solved pre-antibiotics, even though it wasn't pretty, and a lot of it is random variance. Actually there are some people in European populations that are missing a receptor used by HIV, so they are immune to that virus.

Still, its unlikely you'll be the lucky one although at least basement dwelling nerds are less likely to be infected in a pandemic.

Gating content? Should every game just have a flagpole you jump on at the end as far as narrative?

Moonlight was great, well deserved the win. La La Land was fine but if it won, it would be just like the self congratulating Artist years back, so everyone should be surprised the academy was less tone deaf this year.

If you really only like sci fi/action or "cool" movies the Oscars will never be your thing, but almost everything that got nominated was worth a watch this year, from the Lobster to Toni Erdmann to Manchester.

Rigs- I've been having fun in The Secret World, which is a modern day conspiracy/cthulhu type setting. You have to buy it to play, but bundlestars sells it for $12 often. There's no sub. I'm not very deep, but the quests are pretty varied. There's a few puzzle type investigation quests sprinkled in that are pretty fun. There was one quest where I was supposed to decode morse code...I just googled the answer instead though...


Re:AssCreed
I actually saw this (slow weekend...) and it was irredeemably silly. They memory regress a bunch of murders then have them free roam in a prison full of bladed weapons under glass. Thank goodness they gave the guards all those nightsticks...

This obviously didn't hurt the superstars but there were a lot of small time people that didn't deserve this. Not to mention the random people caught in the net. If you still think its fine though I'll go ahead and release that picture my bots got off your webcam of you jerkin it.

Concur that the sentence is about right.

Great point jacobvandy. The real joke here is how most of the content is thrown into the ocean for free for the 10 in 6 billion hope of making 15 million at the top? Seems like the odds got way longer and the money got way worse. Creative people might be the easiest sector to prune with economies of scale after all.

The reason to have empathy is this; if they're willing to treat their rich golden goose like that, how do you think they treat their middle class and lower employees? Would a company like this blink twice at fucking you over if you worked there?

Looking at the loot table, ouch. You need about 5-6 wins to break even here, which in the random Arena is undercut to 3 wins. Here you'll be against everyone confident enough to sack up 1k gold. If you get blanked by 3x midrange shaman netdeck then you get 1 pack for your money and throw 9 more in the garbage.

Buyer beware, if you don't already have the legendaries at the top you aren't going to get them. At least this will help someone like Firebat finish out his all gold freeze mage deck.

Ark survival has more in common with Pogs to its players than System Shock 2. Nobody is buying in looking for a classic, they're getting something all their friends have so they can fuck around. Strange bugs probably enhance the experience. And it's got people in it because it's popular. There's tons of these games but they're all rotting without the playerbase. This is the mall.

What a shithole San Francisco has become. You couldn't pay me enough to get me to live there.

This is literally true, San Francisco housing prices are approaching the singularity.

I like San Fran though, the touristy area is a mess but the area by the Golden Gate and Market is very nice and still has that Vertigo feel.

If you stay in early access, people are never sure when to review your shaggy dog of patched together systems. Since people seem willing to buy on hype alone, why bother putting yourself out there? It didn't do Starbound any favors.

Picked up a vita slim just a few months ago actually (I thought the library was feature complete and now was the time to go through all those plus games I accrewed). Very nice little machine. This news is some serious gravy though.
