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...

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.

I hope the two guys they have left working on this feel fulfilled. I guess it makes sense for a 10 year old game to peter out

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.

Nightdive did a pretty good job with the Strife remaster, I think they at least have an eye for keeping things pleasant for the end user.

Jeff Kaplan talking about what they are working on.

That was surprisingly informative, thanks.

The ruling can be read if you click through, it's a pretty good read.

Basically the lynch pin of this issue is the appeals trial court, which refused to sack up and call Zado out for his abuse of a rule which is supposed to speed up trial resolutions by making absentees auto claim guilt. In effect I could SAY I sent you a lawsuit brief demanding 20k and then go to the court and by this ruling they would make you liable.

This seems like such a simple issue, even if you can't believe either party the damages should be limited to within a few fold of the cost of the item. As soon as someone tried to use contract and Craigslist in the same sentence, the judge should have started leaning towards the defendant.

This guy was British but we have all of these legal trolls across the globe and they only go away after you spend 10k in lawyer fees fighting them, which is an undue hardship.
