Making $5600 off lightning in a bottle is pretty depressing. While I don't think they should be rewarded in perpetuity there should be a better balance than this. Dudes making youtube videos about games make more than that.

How the fuck can they beat Microsoft's lobby? No way they can. And even if they do get developers on board, Microsoft can simply choose to disable any support for Vulcan on Windows machines. Game over.

They could also prevent Steam from running but they didn't do that either. Regardless of what your personal feelings are about Microsoft they're a fairly benign platform holder in this sort of regard thanks to all of the anti-competitive lawsuits from the past.

They will compete through DX12, not by disabling Vulkan or something equally silly.

They've already given official statements on how mods are going to be handled and its exactly the same as prior games. There should be no real controversy about this. If mod authors want to monetize their stuff in some way then that's up to them but Bethesda won't be officially doing it. We get the Creation Kit and all that as normal, this was already reported on.

The consoles will have some sort of weird curated mod crap but its through their respective marketplaces and probably deals directly with authors, I doubt Bethesda gets anything out of it. I wouldn't be shocked if it doesn't materialize either, mods can crash the game pretty easily and on consoles I don't know how they will deal with that.

I'm already out and happy with the way it went. I'm sure I could've made more if I had taken more risk but my adviser said to just short it and now I've got a few vacations paid for.

My brother is more like you Lith, he does extensive research into the fundamentals, looks in depth at how much money is raised through shareholder equity vs debt, the management core and all that. It's not my forte so I leave it up to the experts for the most part. The auto industry in general is a bit too volatile for my taste, particularly with EVs coming online in a big way over the next 10 years.

Anyways interesting to see how it all shakes out.

Good riddance to this shitty form of DRM.

While I agree that it in particular, and drm in general, are awful, there are still a number of older games that people may wish to play that will no longer work without hacking the system.

Players should probably just get fixed .exe's, but I can't really see why this change is being made now. Far too late to matter...

They're probably just cleaning up and deprecating old services. I doubt this will affect many people and those that are affected have easy work arounds. They can't keep it around forever and since its DRM I'm quite happy to see it go.

Now if they can kill all of their lame Xbox on PC shit.

Wow must be a tough job, reading a script and getting paid for it. They could just hire thespian college kids for a lot less if they wanted to. They are overpaid for what they do now!

Sorry, far as I am concerned they can jump in a lake.

There is a huge difference between some idiot reading a script and a trained voice actor who can actually perform dozens of unique voices, accents and pull off a convincing performance while being represented by a puppet.

Fallout games have their own lore and universe too and I don't see how anyone can suggest they're just making "Skyrim with guns" with a straight face.

Game is going to be fun as hell, looking forward to seeing most of the BN steam group "In-Game: Fallout 4" on release day!

130 GotY awards? I find that hard to believe. They must be including nominations.

On another note, can they please release a proper Mass Effect Trilogy that includes all of the DLC? I have no intention of buying overpriced Bioware Points.

Yeah I don't know why they keep missing that opportunity. People would love a trilogy comp for the next gen consoles even, shit would sell like hotcakes on the PS4.

You have the right idea, however in my mind that was premature. I'm not sure all the news is priced in. Just today it was learned that it wasnt just 500,000 American VW/Audi's but 8 million worldwide. There is going to be much bigger implications and bigger fines from multiple countries (France, Germany, EU, South Korea are all pretty pissed as well). So it will drop even more before the bottom hits. Remember the old adage, dont try to catch a falling knife.

Most of my investments are safe, I have a shitload of money in bonds and boring index funds for example but I do reserve some money for opportunities like this one. I also invest with an experienced adviser who steers me away from emotional stuff and has reasonable fees. He says this is a good short opportunity and my risk is minimal in terms of the cash I've put into it with a strong upside. Sure it can go lower but I'm going to make money on this so I'm not going to be too upset over the lost potential.

I always reserve some play money for stuff like this, in 2008-2010 I had a very respectable gains thanks to people like cutter panicking

Edit: and its up $20 overnight, that was easy.

Ouch, man. That was brutal. Might as well ask AMD to make a competitive, power conscious processor while we're at it.

Oh right, AMD makes CPUs. Totally forgot hooah!

Bought a bunch of VW stock, don't get opportunities like this very often. Cheating or not, they're still more efficient and it will rebound.

Thats a fools errand, video drivers are insanely complex and built upon a mountain of legacy. "Fixing all the bugs" is chasing the white whale or put differently its like asking AMD to have a decent OpenGL implementation.

is it really that hard for you to understand how people could play a game that is just mediocre or a way to kill time? you honestly think people have to love every game they play? shit - some people play games they hate specifically because of that

its pretty sad you cant realize that - those are your "tears" there, buddy

Hahah no, I am pretty much saying they will do exactly that - bitch and moan then buy it anyway. It's Fallout 4, everyone here is going to own it

Bethesdas design decisions are totally irrelevant, people will just change the game to play how they want like every other Bethesda game. Skyrim was pretty bland without mods and everyone loved it, this will be no different.

The idea that someone can nostradamus the market is hilarious, there are way too many factors to make any sort of accurate prediction in terms of the date. Governments and major hedges often have no idea, let alone some random guy. Conveniently when people are making such predictions the dates are too far off for most people to remember they were wrong and call them out on it. Or they play revisionist history with the prediction or its pointlessly vague. Then the cycle continues. People have been making such claims forever and all have been full of shit.

"interest rates will rise within 5 years" thanks mr wizard
