As for the others. Any serious news-site would be absolutely batshit insane to pull April fools in the age of fake news and twitter shit-storms. So I am really glad not to see any serious news site in this list

Look at the Lexus clip. Its hilarious and face palm inducing at the same time, how obvious they do it just so everyone really 100% for sure understands its a joke. They are all scared to the bone of these PC-shitstorms based on fake news and virtue signalling gone wrong.

And why wouldn't they, it's not like fake news is not a zeitgeist thing already, you can destroy an entire level of trust if you'd put a single "for laughs" news post somewhere where NOBODY expects anything to be fake. Not to mention all these things you correctly mentioned too, causing potentially a shit-storm (that won't care you retroactively call it April Fools) just ain't worth it nowadays.

As I said, any serious news site pulling this would be absolutely crazy to do it. Especially when news are aggregated the original date and meaning/intention can be easily lost too. April fools just isn't worth the hassle anymore.
They always were the zeitgeist.
1964 they started the Vietnam war and caused millions of deaths. 1990 they helped with the invasion of Iraq and killed hundreds of thousands of people and children. 2003 they caused millions of people to die again and to this date continue to kill more.

And now all of the sudden they get a new name and people think they didnt exist before? No. Its different now. Its virtue signalling now. They didnt care about the many lives before, or else they would have learned a long time ago not to believe everything they hear in the media or from the government. Now its just about them (whatever side) being on the right side, again completely ignoring facts just so they can claim to be "non-fake news". We had that already in history too and it always led to total disaster. Thats the real tragic thing. People who should have learned from pretty recent history are doing the exact opposite and actually help actively so that it repeats.

Yeah but there is a huge difference to 2003, 90 or 64.. nowadays information spreads instantly and often isn't curated by anything other than a filter bubble..... Facebook is notorious for not spreading redaction posts (official ones) of news stories if it doesn't match the filter bubble of the user.

And twitter feeds may promote a story to get clicks but they sure as hell won't promote the correction (if one was posted) and nobody with any braincell believed the WMD story in IRAQ. Germany said no to the war for a reason. ^^

As I said, you are not wrong really, fake news and lies always existed, but before the digital age they didn't spread globally in an instant and the govs believed they can control them for their gains, which they of course can not.

1.x.x.x belongs to the APNIC (Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre), the people in charge of handing out IPv4 address in the Asia-Pacific region. I doubt they'll be giving it up any time soon.

1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255
1.0.0.1 to 1.0.0.255

are co-owned | from WHOIS -> APNIC and Cloudflare DNS Resolver project

And yes, I did not know this either and thought this was a joke.

That Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 article is real, actually... They also have the service on 1.0.0.1 since so many wifi routers have decided that 1.1.1.1 is a suitable IP address for their captive portal (it's even in Cisco's own documentation).
Doesn't look good when https://1.1.1.1 does not load.


Works fine for me, only question is why I wouldn't use my ISP DNS.. which is like 8ms ping or less..... while this 23ms Or put differently, 3 times slower.

By accident PoE actually made the game way more fun... that's maybe not a joke, more like really damn sad. God the core loop of PoE has gotten so boring.

The addicts are crying, and the salt shall feed this limitation for years to come, hopefully.

The fact Steam even allows skin gambling, which is illegal as fuck because steam does not block out minors is baffling beyond belief. Gaben should be in jail imo. At least there he'd be doing something productive and maybe HL3 would happen...

The fact that nearly everyone in this topic liked it and still remembers it tells you a lot more than any spoiler.

Clearly we are all simple minded easy to impress and not at all jaded gamers.

Yeah, that must be it.

I wouldn't say the whole thing rides on the single twist. There's some subtle elements like, EDIT -- nm, even while trying to be vague I felt like I was saying too much.

The "twist" is a tonal shift mainly. I didn't even feel like it was a crux of the story because Spoiler: Walker starts making bad decisions immediately. The plot intentionally blows past the fact that you're on a recon mission and aren't even supposed to interact with anyone- just leave and go get the cavalry if you find survivors. On retrospect, the dude is nuts before he sets foot in Dubai. You can see it in his obsession with Konrad even before the WP mortar thing.

The ending makes pretty clear why Walker did not call the cavalry, he was out for revenge and the mission was never what we was going for here.... and he was a nutjob from the first minute.

The tonal shift and revelation that most of the things Walker saw, that he based all his decisions on, were hallucinations was to me one of the greatest plot twists in the game.


That Creston thinks we mean the mortar scene is the perfect example on why this game never got a sequel btw. You could say the point went over him, but really the scene was maybe too heavy to be easily put aside as a red herring. It's not what I mean with twist though, to me other things play a far bigger role. But yeah.. that would be a really big spoiler.

GE2 was one of the worst Monster Hunter clones I ever played... combat, upgrade, leveling, AI is super SUPER grindy and annoying. And the level design is awful too. The story is ripped straight from the Anime so don't expect any surprises there....

This more than any other game would SOOOOOO benefit from an actual combat system that isn't total hp bloated low damage shit. Mind you, enemies do damage.. but they are laughable easy to dodge, the real problem is you can't really do any damage to them quickly nor easily, and when 2 "big" enemies or more appear, things go south so extremely you end up in Mexico.

Overall, this game is on my negative hype list, I would rather see it not release.

One of the few shooters were I actually felt something while playing it. Compare that to games like BF1 or the god awful COD games and you get an idea....

In the situation where the big "WTF" happens I also never thought there was any other logical alternative. Which made the reveal all the more sad.

I hear that the last update changed the controls and made the game worse though.
When did you hear that? I started in January and it seemed fine to me.
https://youtu.be/WdS7Os7u4dY?t=5m47s
So, the flight changes happened just before I started playing the game. That explains why I didn't notice them getting worse. I have to say though, I enjoyed that review/rant on NMS even though I have spent 300 hours in the game. Also, I noticed that guy has only 31 videos posted but has 285k subs. How does that happen?

Called deleting videos

Didn't this game have 5 years dev time? You can make Witcher 3 in that time twice over.

Ps.: Well, you could, unless you are Microsoft. Which is apparently still unable to do anything.

3.5*2=5? Math is hard...

Hyperbole, add it to your dictionary You will need it.

Clearly she doesn't even understand why the rank and file want to unionize to begin with. So what good is she?

She raised some points about the challenges of unionizing locally in a global industry where there are no tariffs and no shipping costs. Companies just close the studio and spin it up in a country with out unions.

And how you propose this changes without having a union pushing for local change? In the end if you do nothing you cement status quo

Every delay costs money. Devs need to eat and pay rent, even if their pride in the project drives them to do untold hours of unpaid overtime. It's all well and good hating on publishers and there are plenty of reasons to, but when devs go back for their second or third extra money/time request I'm sure the people who guarantee the bank-loan or will have to show some kind of revenue in their performance review probably have good reason to get cynical and demand the developers stick to a date they promised which is still often months/years after the original target.

And while people like to see the EAs and Ubisofts of the world as evil mustache twirlers they have budgets and shareholders to please, "bosses" in a sense just like the rest of us. As wonderful it would be to have infinite development time for every decent game idea it's just not practical.
