It's great that we've moved from DLC to microtransactions to even more poorly disguised gambling. No longer do we have to worry about compelling narratives and immersive adventures. Sorry Geralt, you need to pay 8000 redpoints to unlock that chest with a Silver sword. You can exchange $5.00USD for 3999 redpoints, act now!

The gaming industry fucking sucks. It's not "just business" anymore, its openly exploiting customers with addictive behavioral problems. I love paying $60 for an incomplete game with upsale bullshit in it, fucking wonderful. Don't even give me that retarded "just ignore them" argument either, their mere presence influences design and you know it. They wouldn't put it there if they didn't expect it to make money and any corp can justify its actions with profit motivation so fuck off with that shit. Heading that one off at the pass because I'm so sick of fanboys defending this horrible practice.

Loot boxes need to fucking die.

I'm sure Microsoft will defund this soon anyway like they kill most of their non-Forza/Gears exclusives.

What? What the fuck does Microsoft have to do with this game? Frontier have been self-publishing for quite a while now.

Wow, guys.

One dude thinks this is an open world exploration game, even though the news article states literally in the first sentence "the management simulation in the works at Frontier Developments".
The next dude fantasizes about Microshit pulling funding?

What the actual fuck? Did I miss something crucial today? Is today World Fantasy Day where everyone gets to spout some completely random drivel pretending it's a fact?

Yeah I fucked up, a buddy of mine at work told me this was a Microsoft thing and I never looked into it myself. My bad.

I'm sure to the guy at GM they are crap...to a company like GM. Tesla has like 1% of the manufacturing capacity yet somehow achieves bigger advances consistently. GM is weighed down by decades of bureaucracy and in-fighting.

This might be "footage" but calling it in-game is pretty generous.

As predicted NRA opposes ban on bump stocks that were deemed legal by the ATF during the Obama era.

Go after the source, not the low hanging fruit and feelgood stuff that accomplishes nothing.

Yup, if the NRA were banned from donating millions to politicians, getting a bump stock ban instituted would be cake-easy.

Might not be cake easy but at least it might be possible without being riddled with amendment loopholes and other issues.

Do you think "public pressure" that goes away after a 5 day news cycle is going to do anything? After Sandy Hook?!

You want real change? We need to stop the NRA. Until then its Facebook videos and platitudes.

First they need to sell the Xbox One X itself. That humdinger line up of Forza 16 and Super Lucky's Tale isn't exactly rocking my gaming world.

I installed Hakchi2 for my SNES Classic, took less than 10 minutes to get a complete setup with my own set of roms. It's a legit kernel dump tool with no roms included. You can even install RetroArch and use that for the odd rom that Nintendo's internal emulator doesn't support. Works perfectly, love the NES classic. Dat gamepad!

Why aren't we going after Rick Santorum? The imbecile.

I hate that people under estimate guys like this though. He shifts the debate which is what he's paid to do by his real underlying supporters. We need to defund fucking frauds like Santorum who hoover up corporate donor money so we can actually begin to address the real issue.

What does it matter? Polling is skewed to the point of near-uselessness, as evidenced by Hillary's embarrassing loss in the election despite polls showing an easy win. The real issue is that unless The Democrat party puts up a real candidate and stops sabotaging candidates that resonate with the populace but aren't their specific chosen one then we're all going to have 8 years of Trump.

They truly do not understand what was staring them in the face and can't move on from the Hillary loss. butbutbutwhatifwhatif!. What if nothing, she lost. It was like watching the Yankees go up against a first year expansion team and somehow manage to fuck it up. The irony is that all of the non-stop attacks from the late night hosts, CNN and etc just galvanize his supporters. He dines out on this shit, this is what got him elected. Keep it up, you're going to do it all over again.

Anyways we're back to Trump from gun debate so this has definitely gone full circle. And the gun control narrative in the media is fading already, there's another hurricane coming. Some of us aren't surprised in the slightest.

Guess who needs another hurricane to raise his poll numbers.
They sure didn't stay up very long.

It's difficult to put a lot of stock in polls anymore after the humiliating, devastating, embarrassing, horrifying, hilarious Clinton loss. Wait I could add a few more...nevermind

Immature ad hominem attacks. You said nothing significant.

There is no personal attack there, what a lame dodge attempt. Do you not understand the difference? Questioning things you say you believe in, that you have personally stated, is not an attack. When you post opinions, you open them up to people questioning them. Opinions are not inherently worthy of respect, the content of the opinion determines how its treated by others. Someone who tells me that they believe 9/11 was a conspiracy is getting mocked and rightfully so, that opinion is not worthy of respect given the mountain of evidence (not to mention eye witness accounts) that stand against it.

In case you somehow missed it, the point is that maybe you should take a step back, not immediately embrace crackpot theories and actually research them before latching on. You're telling others to do a bunch of reading, how about instead you explain in detail why this theory you have latched onto is more convincing? I'm all ears.

Slashdot turns 20! And its last visitor was in 2014.

Seriously tho. I remember when almost every article would get over 1,000 comments. Now they are lucky to break 50 or 100. Guessing this is due to Reddit.

Reddit is definitely part of it but the site itself has changed a lot. There's a lot of low content front page posts and it just hasn't been the same since Rob left. I hate the "native advertising" they try to slip in too but to be fair I hate all advertising.

For now, it is unclear how complicit Kaspersky is or isn't in this situation. That said, years ago I didn't use their software for the very reason they were based in Russia. I don't know if that makes me paranoid, but I certainly feel better about my decision now.

Oh I don't think they were complicit, it was probably just a software exploit.

Regardless of how they generate electricity in Puerto Rico, they still have to rebuild the distribution system and make it robust enough to survive another hurricane. Like by burying power lines. Still, it would be a cool proof of concept if they did the whole island in solar.

Yeah I think Elon is getting ahead of himself here. He's thinking solely of supply and forgetting distribution.

No, what I'm asking for is that "Video Preset: High" is actually high. Just having High and Low, combined their with vague info is silly, especially with their checkered past in PC ports.

Who cares if your game is offensive! Release it and let the free market decide. "this game hurt my feelings"... give me a damn break.


Who cares if your shop won't serve blacks! Run your business and let the free market decide. "this shop hurt my feelings"... give me a damn break

Kind of apples and oranges. He's basically saying let the game sink or swim on its merits. I think it's an OK argument (I kind of doubt his personal motives in making it) but we do have to make exceptions for things that incite hate speech and violence. Does Dirty Chinese Restaurant qualify? It's offensive and crude but to many people so is "Dear White People: I bet you think this is about you" and yes I know what the show is truly about, it's just a recent example with a silly title to incite attention that came to mind.

The irony is that most of my chinese colleagues are the first to lampoon Asian stereotypes and would probably get a laugh out of this. But I certainly wouldn't be showing it to them

And yeah like NKD said, if a company wants to cave and not offer the game that is the free market deciding. I would just point out that sometimes these things just end up making more money due to all of the media and end up on a different platform, something of a pyrrhic victory.

Canada is pretty safe, I spend a lot of time on business up there. Well certain areas of it anyway. What exactly is the crime rate in your area?

I guess that he doesn't actually fall? The racoon video is more amusing. The shark one is silly, it just spits it out seconds later.

Corporate culture in Japan fucking sucks, we think we've got it bad here hahaha no.
