I normally enjoy that sort of wacky speculation but the article was so stupid I just could not get into it.

Games have gotten more expensive to produce, and cheaper to buy as time goes on.
And the sales targets have been increased dramatically.

Selling 1 million copies of a major title in 1990? Unrealistic.
In 2000? Expected.
In 2019? Way under target.

The price for a product is also tied to the expected sales of that product.

Also, with the various additional purchases offered by major titles, the actual cost of a AAA game can easily turn out to be far in excess of $100.

You didn't spell this out but it is important for your point - unlike physical goods there is no (or very little) cost in making a copy of software so more sales will support greater development costs.

What is Nicalis and why should I care the founder is a dick?

So you can be an idiotic internet outrage monkey apparently.

Of course you defend a guy who signs agreements then disappears and professionally blames Jews and calls black people porch monkeys.

He's like you if you had any authority at work.

I was insulting people not defending them - but you already knew that. And you really do not know me at all Beamer so nice bit of projecting there. You seem to think having "authority" is something important. Can't say I'm surprised...

You were insulting those outraged, as per usual, not the racist. Meanwhile, you linked to a term extremely common and, oddly, that is itself a definition. No surprises. You strike me as the type that needs very basic and obvious terms defined for you. Like "racist." We've all seen you struggle with that one.

Sometimes it is difficult to work out if you are being deliberately dense or just have a complete inability to understand nuance. Why the fuck would I insult someone who is not a member of the forum? To express some absurd goodthink? Signal I'm part of the in-group? At least those who I did abuse might have a think about it and be less likely to go off on a stupid rant, and have something a little more meaningful to say, in the future (however unlikely).

And you're shocked that in order to define a term I linked to it's definition LOL! Nice try at claiming consensus. keep up the good work.

Wait, why was my post removed? It was in support of characters that were of any sexuality. I just wanted it to make sense in the context of the story being presented.

Because of a slur. The "r" word.

Please tell me you didn't just remove a post because it used the work "rape".

Got the xkcd challenge on my first try.

The Chronicles of Riddick -- rated at 29%

Took me a while. Whilst I enjoyed The Chronicles of Riddick for what it could have been, the execution was was too flawed for me to really love it. Funnily enough I enjoyed the third film of the trilogy the most.

Found this one though:

Jon Snow in Space? No, really, the main character is Jon Snow - look at his face and the facial expression.

Your point is? This show is one of the best sci fi shows ever made.

Agree with both of you. Actually have described that character to a friend as "John Snow in Spaaaaaace".

Thanks, a little before my time but not so much that I wouldn't have heard it if it was popular where I grew up (which I guess it wasn't as I hadn't).

Can't say if you were joking (and it's sad if you weren't), but it was a reference to a certain famous song...

I guess I'm just a sad ignoramus then
Please let me know what song oh great one.
