It starts off "c'mon, that's generically describing the game" but quickly becomes 'whoa. Really?"

I don't fault IGN for not catching this, and they're handling it right. We'll see where it goes.

Yeah, I wonder how that even got to be to be honest.. not like pacing a review is rocket science but this kind of overlap is baffling, he could have shuffled it around and nobody would have noticed...

Normally I'd agree with you Beamer - arguing what things are called is basically semantics most of the time. But when it comes to this topic specifically, an already contentious one for many people, what gets called what to be passed off as simple identifiers is important. Words like 'racism' and 'white privilege' are, in my opinion, very intentionally used as igniter words to evoke strong feelings. The problem is, these words often derail any chance of intelligeny discourse because of how they are intended to make non-minorities feel. Ashamed. Guilty. Possibly even partial perpetrators of the injustice. I know that I am none of these things, and the labels I take at face value. But as evidenced by how these discussions are always so contentious - here and pretty much everywhere else - what would noramlly be simple semantics becomes a huge sticking point that precludes civil discourse. I'm willing to bet that half of the people who tune you out and get mad and defensive are just tired of being (what they perceive to be anyway) lambasted for being born into a middle class white family (something they have no more control over than someone born into a lower class Hispanic or African American family). Yes there is indifference on the part of many, but I suspect the majority of people who get called privileged white dudes really do care about fixing the system that tends to bury the less fortunate under a mountain of disadvatages and the culture of beligerence adopted by minorities that breeds adversarial relationships with law enforcement, authority, and people more fortunate. But it's a complicated issue with many, many facets, and even us privileged middle class white guys have stressful, busy lives rife with problems that need to be managed. There's only so much energy and attention one has to go around, and most of it naturally gets dedicated to keeping ourselves afloat. Lack of action is not indicative of a lack of empathy.

Exactly.

Intelligent discourse stops the moment you call someone an ideologically charged term. Because when you as a minority challenge the status quo of the established majority ideology you are no longer a minority, you are an ideological enemy to the majority. And if you don't have a strong charismatic figurehead like Ghandi behind you, a person behind which any person of any color could rally, then you will lose that battle REALLY hard.

It's why in Europe as well as in the USA we see more and more radical viewpoints pushed into majority acceptance, the more minorities engage in hateful personal attacks instead of fundamental bi-partisan concepts the more the radical viewpoints gain dominance. The more Trumps we will have, and the less Ghandis.

What some people don't get is that for the majority these issues are entirely irrelevant to their lives. And those issues that are relevant to the majority were not catered to by the "other" party, otherwise Trump would not be where he is.

And for a German I can only say, please continue, it's been good entertainment so far ;p

This is a really good way to make me NEVER want to play in their pseudo MMO mode, give me SQ42 and then I'll sod off and forget the rest of the game even exists. Especially because the bigger more decked out ships will ALWAYS win in a 1:1 fight, and having yours lost completely while the enemy can afford infinite insurance is pay to win.

But hey, nothing new in that regard, greed ruins all games.

As someone who has been playing video games almost every day for 40 years I always laugh when people take video games so seriously.

If you don't RP in a RP then you should maybe take it more seriously

Literally the day Monero came out with this bullshit excuse of an CLEARLY only-good-for-criminals mining method people predicted it'd be used for exactly this. Hidden crypto miners in shareware and demos, early access and assorted. This is also the reason Monero has been called (by the boss of the world bank) as a currency made for, and maintained by, a criminal organization. (*cough* MAFIA *COUGH*

Ps.: Why is your email address the thread title? Fix your password app, that's a security issue ;p
How can Valve know who is going to actually do it, though? The point I was making is that it is wholly impractical for them to QA everything before putting it on the store. They'd need hundreds of people for that, and there would still be a perpetual backlog and frequent leaks. It's a fool's errand. They react because it's what you have to do.

And my email being in there is honestly an improvement. It usually autofills with a thread title from some crap about No Man's Sky from months ago. I'm not sure if it's my browser or my password manager doing it, and I don't know how to get it to quit in either case. :/

Disable it for this site only and just use cookies, because that's the only way I can stop it from autofilling my email in the subject, and not auto-filling the email field. Those fields are wrongly tagged ;/

And as for how, well, sandbox -> run exe -> look at where it connects to. Obviously requires some manual input, and that right there is the problem. Valve *REFUSES* to manually check files before they are pushed online as in, can be bought. Only when someone complains do they check the "package" on their servers manually...

I hear what you are saying Bistro, but it would be nice if Valve, by far the industry leader, could be more proactive. For years now, everything has been just react, react, react.
Why don't you try and predict the next dumbass thing some shit dev is going to pull, then? This doesn't happen on other services because they're tiny compared to Steam. Only GoG is starting to really compete, and their market share is still comparatively small enough that it'd be like attacking Apple computers before the iPhone.

How long does it take to gain these items? Doesn't seem like a newcomer friendly game. Even with the original Teamfortress games (original and classic) there was already a skill & knowledge gap to overcome to become competitive, now it seems that there are even more hurdles to overcome in the sequel.

Far as i know drops are random, like totally.

So you could buy an item to gain an advantage in Teamfortress 2?

Advantage? Hard to say, but some items have far reaching in-game effects, to the point where some are mandatory to have in competitive play.

All of these items can be crafted "in-game" though.

and just like that, you'll never see EA release a game that doesn't have it's content spread out over months.

just about everything has to be designed around being a "live service" where they trickle out the content to keep people paying for the service, maybe sports games like Madden would be exempt because they'll get you to keep paying for next years roster.


That's good, because it means I don't have to buy any EA game until it's on deep sale
