I'll try it again when they get the urine flow physics as you pee in to your space toilet locked down.
Perfecting urine flow rate in conjunction with various iterations of tumescence, not to mention prostrate issues and Covid supply chain setbacks, has pushed UFP to 3rd quarter 2024. At which point the team will focus on the infinite number of shades and receptacles. I'm giddy at the thought of making foamy bubbles in toilet bowls while watching the water change colors and aiming at all the drain holes in a urinal.
Serious question: Do you think the urinals will have a fly image for improved aim. squeee

Salute Well played sir...well played.

Rofl, looks like it'll be over the top awesome, potentially. Reminds me of old school anime classics, original Ghost in the Shell(or even some of the ones that came after, S.A.C. etc.) Akira, Trigun, Vampire Hunter D, etc.. Stylish, ultra violent, with some sex thrown in, because why not?

If anime isn't your thing, then this probably won't be either, but it looks pretty good to a somewhat jaded former anime fan like myself. Aside from Attack on Titan, I find it hard to find any watchable anime these days. Netflix has had some good animated series though, Love and Death and Robots, that.. League of Legends based anime? Castlevania, were all surprisingly good, with a variety of countries of origin/production.

Hopefully this Cyberpunk: Edgerunners one turns out great, although it looks to be straight out of Japan via Korean animators, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

For folks looking to get back into anime I usually recommend Re:Zero and the Ancient Magus' Bride to start off with. Different from your regular "guy thinks he's hot stuff, gets beaten up, trains and then gets more power...to realize he still has training to do and trains some more" fluff.

Amazon’s putting a three-day pause on reviews for The Rings of Power.

Reading the reviews of people who bombed it shows a lack of intelligence, misogyny, senseless anger, racism and other incel like attributes.
If it wasn't so sad it would be hilarious.

The show looks good, the story is good, the acting is good and the casting is good.

What jdreyer said earlier about not using the same top Hollywood stars has really paid off.
Angelina Jolie as Galadriel, Tom Cruise as The Stranger, Jason Sudeikis as Elrond, Scarlett Johansson playing Nori Brandyfoot and Christopher Walken as Watchwarden Revion would have been jarring af.

Why the hell would you even want them? Tom Cruise...Scarlett Johansson? Is that who people have been asking for?

On no level should that be something you are proud of. These are people's lives you are throwing into the grinder for the singular purpose of making a game.

No deadline is worth that. None.

The whole "get a friend to give us minimum $40 and we'll give you free stuff" is not the kind of tactic a game which has already earned hundreds of millions should be pushing.

Chris, you've made basically all the money you're ever going to get. So stop with the sales pitch and release something us hold-outs might want to buy. Like, oh I don't know, Squadron 42?!

That is NEVER coming...

MeanJim, I see you are determined, so cite CDPR, famous for their anti-DRM position.
Good reference, but how many more take that radical(?) stance.

Resident Evil Village is uncracked after 13 months.
Of course some will wait for a crack, for lack of money, patient disposition, or rabid piracy beliefs.
But many others won't wait and pay, when otherwise might have used piracy.

Can DRM be inconvenient, put an end of life to your game, or even harmful if badly managed ? Yes.
I also would like no DRM or lighter ones, but won't fret about trends I can't change nor deny the realities and logistics of the matter.

WannaLog, what you are saying is that publishers have screwed the developers under them for a myriad of reasons and especially when a game does not sell to an impossibly high standard set by the publisher. It is basically a fact that publishers are assholes and treat the studios under them like shit. That does not mean that piracy is the major contributing factor to a game's success. Guardians of the Galaxy is a great game protected by Denuvo...it did not sell to the expectations of the publisher...if piracy wasn't the issue what was?

Also whether CDPR's stance is radical or not is irrelevant...does it work? It seems to.

In my younger days (19-23) I used to visit the crack sites for games as well. Now I buy whatever I want to play. Looking back at those days, I just wanted to try whatever was the newest thing and I did not have the money to buy all the games I wanted. So even if they were all protected by DRM, I would not have bought any of the ones I pirated anyway because I did not have the cash.

Piracy is the convenient boogeyman to hold up when things don't go the way you thought they would and you're looking for an excuse to your publisher or to yourself. I'm not saying that it has zero impact, but I am saying that the impact that it does have varies and is almost always offset by if the game is both good and captures the imagination of the audience...and if the publisher is a dick (almost always a resounding yes).

Article isn't wrong to ask these questions. Not getting a response to a question such as why not more blacks, that's a company I wouldn't want to work for anyways because that also includes other questions such as, "Why are revenues down?" , "How come we are not allowed to say negative things about this game when it's clearly crap?".
I outsource a bit of my work to coders on upworks, and I usually end up with talent from all over the globe. I do believe if we all hired by talent alone, we would get a mix of people from all walks of life. Unfortunately, companies are run like a dictatorship and change is rare to happen, even with HR quotas applied.

Give this man a cigar!

My point remains that these are not reviews but opinions and that is what all user "reviews" should be flagged as.

"Game is bad"

"Waste of time"

"Should of been turn based instead of RTS...what a let down."

"Can't customize weapons."

"Trash"

"We need Chinese motherfuckers"

These are just some of the very well thought out reviews I have encountered in Steam. And again I'm not saying that these should go away...but it should be pointed out that these are not real reviews. They are just opinions and reactions from a very volatile public that don't reflect the state of the game at all.

Yeah a lot of good games have gotten crappy reviews over some really stupid shit that has nothing to do with actual gameplay.
