Except GOG is the real closed platform. Try talking with some indy devs who were flat out refused with no reason given... Steam doesn't pull such bullshit. You pass Greenlight = you get on Steam.

Yeah, and we all know how many bad games made it onto Steam because all Valve cares about is money and not game quality. I guess GOG is just avoiding this for now...

If it were about quality.. but GoG does not select by quality, they select by genre and personal mood of whoever it is that decides this. That is the literal meaning of a closed platform. Quality is no deciding factor to get on GoG
Some examples? I'm unaware of GoG disallowing any particular genres on their service. I mean, I'm guessing they probably don't have any eroge. But other than that...

Games like this
http://arcengames.com/tidalis/

Notice in GOG genre selection there is none for puzzle games :/

And as for Eroge games, remember GoG has this
https://www.gog.com/game/huniepop

Which is listed under... Simulation (like.. what?)

So I feel like there is some disparity there... If Huniepop made it on there which is a objective and time based match game then Tidalis should be there too imo.

I wonder if one were to dig and scour indy forums how many other great puzzle games were never accepted by GoG

And well.. as for how GoG behaves..
https://www.gog.com/game/double_dragon_trilogy
Read the reviews ,)

I don't have an axe to grind here, I know Tidalis because I worked with the devs before (not on Tidalis, mind you) and they make great niche games.

If it weren't for GOG and other small sites, Steam on PC would already be pretty much a closed platform...

That said, any dev going UWP exclusive must be brain dead, market share isn't even 50%, and with Vulkan there is even less reason to upgrade to Windows 10 since that works perfectly fine on Windows 7/8 etc.

Just another "fun" aspect to the upcoming Rio Sewage Olympic games. I know the rowers are braver people than I, special antibiotic suits and all.

This was actually what my wordplay was targeting at.. Rio isn't much more than a glorified sewage drain and ripe with crime and corruption.

So.. Olympic games are a perfect fit really after allowing Russian mass dopers back in with zero punishment....

These Olympic games are just.. sigh worthy

Did you grow up in the '80s? Even if you didn't you need to be watching Stranger Things on Netflix. Holee Sheeeeit is this show good. Great acting, mysterious plot, amazing world building (I knew those kids and lived in those houses!), fantastic tension, and some of the best creepy moments I've seen in a while with genuine danger. This is what Super 8 should have been.

Thanks for pointing the show out Watched the first ep.. already hooked

I really enjoyed Anno 2070 but haven't played any of the other games.

From what I could gather the new Anno has some issues and is also streamlined in some aspects. What's the truth? Is it worth playing?

Well since patch 1.7 + Veteran difficulty + Tundra + Orbit the answer is mostly yes... it isn't easy mode anymore, it's actually a pretty good challenge which is only offset by the Orbit research which requires a ton of input to really push it...

And dunno about worth, but it is definitely gotten addictive and fun, and there are tons more events and missions. It ain't a 1404 but it is really kinda ok now.

That said once you get ownership of stocks of a few companies the bonus % you get from that are also pretty neat.... so yeah, either you like it at this stage, or you don't...

I like it

It's hilarious that they've managed to sell as many of these "progamer douchebag" mice without people realizing that they are utterly pointless.

Bro! Do you even FPS, bro??!

My Logitech G700s wireless gaming mouse supports up to 1Khz* and 8200 DPI. Why? It's a very nice mouse but surely that's far more than anyone could need. I have both set to about a quarter of those limits, to boost the battery life up to usable.

* Polling rate isn't really that useful, it's not an indication of latency.

Wireless mice have latency issues in my gaming altar room. I mean drops and random disconnects btw.. so yeah. Btw, the real issue is that we got used to the mx518 and it's quirks... newer mice feel very different. I tried a Razor one once, and I got elbow and wrist pains within 3 days. Mouse choice is a very fickle thing, and not everyone of us actually *HAS* much of a choice. If the form isn't the way the G400 or mx518 is then we have a problem ;p

Btw, I use the DPI adjustment in games all the time.... so DPI isn't a selling point for me, just another word of sensitivity (yes I know I does more than that...)

At least it looks like Wired stopped with the full page "stop using an adblocker" thing they had going for a while.

Still wouldn't recommend lining to such a shit site though, half the Wired articles are paid advertisements.

This stuff with the Melania speech is just hilarious. Did the GOP actually get rickrolled by an intern speechwriter? What a clusterfuck.

I just got the full window "Turn off your adblocker" with no way past to the article.

Just tried again and see no such thing (as I said, Firefox/uBlock Origin/MSVP hosts blocklist.. I wonder if this some kind of region or country detection going on.. wouldn't surprise me...

Anyway, plenty of other news sources for this.. and for stuff like this Google News is the best option.. tons of links to basically the same news...

I see three girls in bikinis walking by three guys playing Pokémon Go, totally ignoring the girls. Well, at least they won't breed.

And if you're going to play ... get the $#!&# off the bike path!

You say that, but interest in sex is at an all time low in Japan, where people have been addicted to devices for decades. There are so few babies being born that the population is expected to fall from 120M today to 90M by 2050.

And ... ?

His point is, I assume, that they would be ignoring those "bikini babes" with or without Pokemon Go or indeed with or without smart phone in hand.

The fact that any application running can inject plugins/addons into Firefox is bugging me as well.. see it every single time with flash updates as well (yeah yeah.. I need it for something) which just can magically inject a new flash version into my browser and firefox doesn't even notify me.

Makes you wonder what else firefox doesn't notify you about.

Sadly for me, Firefox is without choice.. I was kinda OK with chrome for a while but that has the same privacy issues as Maxthon, maybe even worse ones. And Opera.. well.. latest Opera doesn't even display most sites I use properly. Sigh...

On my tablet I use firefox mobile mainly because stock browser totally fucking sucks, and doesn't have uBlock origin ;p And even there it's annoying the shit out of me... but it's without choice. Tried opera mini on my tablet and that was horrible.

Blue, please stop linking to sites (e.g. wired.com) that force ads.

Is wired going to pay to recover my PC from ransomware from one of those ads? Nope. Are ad publishers recognising this problem? Nope. They're sweeping it under the rug.

Hey Erazer, you seem to be conveniently forgetting or misrepresenting a large part of what happened in your country's history. Here is a good documentary that's pretty much spot on with regards to how and why Hitler could do what he did in Germany at the time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KiD4Sps48U

It's a good documentary But I think we are confusing each other now.. I never said he is the next Hitler, I said he is creating the environment where the next Hitler could gain power. Nazi Germany, aka the Nazi party, had tons of staged trials against political opposition, and they brought down real democracy well before Hitler became Reichskanzler. I guess we'll see how it turns out in Turkey, but Erdogan himself said he takes inspiration from Hitler

Anyway, no point arguing about it.. as I said, if there are indeed fair trials post coup then I stand corrected. And that means none of them can receive the death penalty. Since they already committed the crimes (if any) and a punishment for an already committed crime can not be legally changed

Really? How many trials did Hitler organise after that night? Oh yeah, none. Which is more likely? That Erdogan himself staged that coup, organizing a conspiracy of thousands who are now willingly facing trial for him, as convenient scapegoats? Or that an outside power with ties to Turkey's elites financed and organized the coup, something that has been factually documented in the Middle East since the Ottoman Empire...

Yeah Im gonna go ahead and safely use Occam's razor on this one.

Fair enough, fact is history will be the judge... and history would show you that what Erdogan is doing now is 1:1 what the NSDAP was doing, albeit over a much longer time period. So if we actually see 20000 fair trials then I take it back.. but somehow I really doubt that In fact I am pretty sure those 3000 judges will never be seen again...

20,000 arrested. Would have needed pre-planned arrest lists for such nonsense.

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” - George Orwell

In German we even have a phrase for that. "Nacht der langen Messer"

To be honest, to me Turkey isn't a democracy and never was. And now the masks are falling and Erdogan shows his true face. That of someone who wants to become Sultan.

And why should you worry? Because this is *EXACTLY* how Nazi Germany came to be. Albeit in case of Turkey this now happens 20 times faster.

Remember, Hitler was also "elected" but it was anything but a democratic vote. In an atmosphere of fear and oppression, of violent mob rule and murders of political enemies, there can be no such thing as democracy.


Look, I have no love of Erdogan, but comparing him to Hitler is not useful. Although Turkey has one of the more formidable militaries in the world, they're not going to start steamrolling their neighbors or start programs of ethnic cleansing.

And while he is hated by vast swaths of the Turkish population, even the opposition turned out in support of Erdogan and against the coup.

As for arresting 20,000, that could be as simple as "Group A opposed us, so arrest them all. Same for groups B, D, and E." In a country of 75M, 20K is not very many.

I compared the currently employed methods to how Nazi Germany came to be, as in, the system that lead to mass oppression and hard repression against any opposition and which cemented the 1 men rule...

And no ethnic cleansing? Kurds would disagree, very strongly or do you think it's just an accident weapon shipments to IS took place who just randomly happened to be fighting Kurds at the time?
