I'm not sure why transaction costs are ever anything but trivial since it's all done through computers I would guess the business overhead for them is very low.

It's because transactions are % fees calculated in bitcoin, and when value goes up, then so do transaction fees. One of the (many) flaws of Bitcoin.

The currency has to start implementing fractions and move the decimal points a few hundred places to the right to reduce transaction fees back to normal

Goodbye Titanfall, we never truly knew ya.
And goodbye to the developers, signing up to a studio serial killer is probably the dumbest thing you can do.

Online bots are able to go online and buy out popular holiday toys. That leaves parents having to shop on third-party sites like eBay and Amazon for the items and buy them at a markup from their original price, The New York Democrat said Sunday.

What do you mean, have to? It's time junior gets used to disappointment and learns you can't always get what you want. Welcome to real life, kid.

Or teach the child how to snipe good offers him/herself, a much needed skill when you don't swim in money.

It'll be interesting to see if they treat -these- employees the same way they've treated raters for their search algorithms, i.e. like trash, to be managed by a third party for plausible deniability.

With a big corporation, that kinda shit is guaranteed no?

News Comments > Star Control Rights Follow-up
8. Re: Star Control Rights Follow-up Dec 5, 2017, 14:01 eRe4s3r
 
That's a lot of text for 3 games really absolutely nobody cares about anymore.... and that aren't sold anywhere legally aside by the one who owns the license to sell them on Steam (which is Stardock) otherwise Steam would have pulled the games long ago. The reason GoG sold them is that GoG signed extraneous and illegal distribution agreements by the way, if what Wardell says is true the 2 dudes are NOT legally allowed to sell "their own game", so their permission is completely irrelevant.

TL;DR, maybe they should hire an actual lawyer instead of making blog posts....

That said, if they do own the rights to sell the games I would be very surprised, I always assumed they gave them away for free because they LITERALLY can not sell them ^^ So I was even more surprised when I saw them on GoG being sold. Something along the lines is either 1 party spreading a lie or both sides lie or both sides don't understand IP law.

It's a nice marketing trick, 8bit display but color calibrated and AdobeRGB.. but those LUT tests do not test for gradient transitions. And HDR10 would look absolutely abysmal on a 8bit display, you'd lose over 30% of the source data in that transition.... sad to see Philips Brilliance stands for nothing anymore.

As long as you download the games through Uplay during their free periods, they will be yours to keep and play whenever you like.

I haven't used Uplay. I'm wondering if anybody here has? The question I have is if I download Black Flag BUT DON'T INSTALL IT (because I'm still running XP) can I re-download the game at a later date after I've finally gotten around to installing the copy of Windows 10 I've had sitting in a box for months now? (I'm not technical so since there's no direct upgrade from 32 to 64 and I've got no experience doing a windows 10 install I've just been waiting for my current HD to die and I'm forced to make the attempt)
Yes, It goes into your library and you can install it whenever you want. Just like Steam.
I take that back.
"As long as you download the games through Uplay during their free periods, they will be yours to keep and play whenever you like."
sound like bs but that's what it says

It can't hurt to go ahead and put them in your library. Nothing to lose.

The wording is like that when you add them from the uPlay client, there you have to click on em in "Free Games" and click "download" to get them listed in your Library, they stay there then forever though, but you can also just go to the link blues has posted and it adds it to your account proper without that nonsense

Yup. PUBG's been top dawg since March consistently every fucking week after week after week...
No CoD, no AssCreed, no Middle Earth, no GTA, no Skyrim, no Witcher has been able to dethrone it. Sad but true.

Nothing wrong with that per sť, what we can expect now though, is 600 clones of that 1 game mode and none of them will be good. Adding further to the shit-show that is Steam nowadays.....
Popular games and gameplay modes are frequently copied. I use steam to buy games I already want so steam adding more games, both good ones and bad ones, does not affect me.

Yeh, but as soon as you go off looking for decent indy games, steam is not usable.... and for indy and smaller devs the recent influx of shit has been catastrophic

It's even more amazing when you consider that the EU asteroid lander had 3 failed landing systems and that was built 20 years later....

They really don't built them like they used to. And it makes this achievement all the more impressive by NASA of old. But nowadays nothing like this could ever be built... too much meddling, too little drive for perfection and not enough money.

With KB/Mouse it ain't.... with controller, kinda.... super rough game but interesting concept.. horrid-bad sneaking system with ZERO indication of view ranges or what constitutes "sound enemies hear" and what they don't hear...

Seems to be kinda fun though

Yeah, that's a strange "threat" What you call a threat that everyone else thinks would be a good thing? Surely the English language has a word for that?

But you know what the Russian language doesn't have a word for? Internet. They wanna make a LAN so why stop them? If it gets them out of stores, games and chats and forums, that would be the best thing to ever happen!

Dogs Are Brainier Than Cats, New Study Finds

That's only because cats dedicate the majority of their brain-power and intelligence towards being crazy assholes. There just isn't much left over for anything else.

Yeah I don't think you ever knew despair until you had a cat that had life figured out. And that meant it was an asshole in cat-form that wanted to own everything you owned and anything it couldn't have it would "accidentally" toss of a shelf or chew on or topple over.

But dogs are too much work (And cats know this)
