Obligatory "I am not an IP lawyer" but that looks pretty damning. Hopefully the original artist makes bank off of this theft.
The chance of the artist making a lot of money off of this is low. It basically has to be a 1:1 copy and not just "heavily inspired by" the original for copyright law to be on his/her side. It's very likely that the Activision lawyers went over it before the trailer was released.

You can not copyright a concept, only the realisation of that concept into a tanglible medium.

You think their lawyers went over this that much that they scanned every ArtStation or Deviant Art post? Be realistic. Also the music industry has shown time and time again that it doesn't need to be a 1:1 copy, and Activision already removed the image, so they know they fucked up royally. But yes, they will have way more money and attorneys on their side than this artist, saillin, so maybe he won't get any compensation at all, as you say.

Cutter, you got to be trolling.

Maybe you haven't been keeping up with current events of the last decade but no, I'm not. Why else do you think liberalism is failing the world over? Normal people are sick and tired of it. You want heroes of color, a different sexual orientation? Go for it. Just create your own shit and leave ours alone. Either that or stfu about co-opting culture. Either everything's sacred or nothing is. Pick one.

I feel like you are are always on the cusp of realizing the fatal flaws in your thinking, but you never seem to. Clearly you can easily (maybe only?) relate to characters that are also white. How do you think the majority of the world feels (who are not white) when every damn movie and show is nothing but white people with maybe one token black or other non-white character? Why do you feel threatened/angered/confused/whatever by a fictional character being a different skin color, or one who isn't heterosexual? It's also not your own shit, it's Neil Gaiman's story, and in this case, the rights were purchased by Netflix, so they can do whatever they want with the characters or whatever else. All you, or anyone can really do, is watch it or not watch it. You have no racial ownership(or dare I say, white privilege?) over anything here. Nor does anyone else. Neil Gaiman isn't on your 'team' any more than he's on the team of any other human.

All of that said, Netflix has been mostly missing lately, I don't have high hopes for them making something great with live action, out of a truly excellent comic. Good luck though!

Nice, I'm still looking forward to D4. I skipped Immortal and D2R of course, but I easily had 800 hours in D3.

I'll try to avoid beta burn out on D4 though, probably won't play the beta much at all, if I can help it.

I looked up Until Dawn, but unfortunately it's PS4 only still?

I played some of The Quarry, and I remember now the frustration I had with some of the old school QTE games like Indigo Prophecy... simply not enough game for me, most of the time. I don't know if I'll buy it, I'll go back to the demo later, maybe.

Still more interested in Starfield, but hopefully at some point in the near future, kxmode will forgive these guys with the obscene amount of content they keep adding to an already released game.

This game and Cyberpunk 2077 are why I will never preorder a game again. Cyberpunk has turned out okay, finally, but I am very glad I cancelled my preorder of this mess.

Well, there have been many preorder/neverending alpha-beta games, unfortunately. Cyberpunk 2077 at least was made by a reputable developer, who just bit off more than they could chew. V:tM:B2 is made by... nobody knows, at this point?

I was looking forward to Lightyear, but reviews have been pretty rough.

I'll definitely watch it once it hits Disney+, no reason not to.

I did break down and see Thor Love and Thunder in a theater, in a highly vaccinated state recently... I thought it was pretty good actually. Not sure why so many reviewers disliked it. Christian Bale is easily one of the top 3 Marvel Villains, everybody else was great, the story was reasonably good, the effects etc. were all good to great... it's not Oscar material, it's a Marvel movie.

Ugh, wow... there must be a global market for this or something, this seems like a colossal waste of resources. Who wants to play a remake/rehash of Division 1 on their fucking phone?!

Get off my lawn, old man yells at cloud, etc.

Nullity-> Yes, I'd love some Division 3 news. Heartland sounds mediocre at best, and whatever they keep claiming they are going to add to Division 2 has yet to materialize after years of vague hints. So just cut all this crap and get to work on Division 3.

Hrm. Well, good luck, I'll check this out when it's done, I guess. I've played exactly zero of this studio's previous games. The Aliens timeline (officially) is so fucked that they should just do whatever, on some other planet, in my opinion. That said, I always like shooting aliens, so hopefully this turns out well.

I'm not sure what the end game is with these Republicans anymore, they are making the majority of America unlivable. Republican voters will of course find out the hard way eventually, but then just blame it on the nearest Democrat, ad infinitum.

It's not a cash grab because this is not a necessary expenditure. We can't always just blame companies for making stuff, that's what they do. It is up to every person to evaluate if they think this is worth it for them.

Is it too much to ask that you can have some self control?

It's not the fact that they made this but the fact that they made it, remastered it and then remade it again. I suspect people will just wait until it's $20 or on PS Plus. But is it a cash grab? Yes, it is. Of course people who complain about it shouldn't buy it, that kind of goes without saying.
But as has been pointed out, this one is coming to PC. That alone adds value to me.

Really? That's great! I assume they will delay for a year, but I have been dying to play The Last of Us 1 and 2, and don't want to have to buy a PS5 and then suffer playing through them with a controller.

As far as a cash grab.... meh, they claim to be doing quite a bit of work updating it(graphically, fighting systems, etc.) and probably making it ready to port to PC if what you say is true. I don't know if it's 70$ worth, but it's a bit early to try to make that analysis, and I'll probably but it eventually anyway, albeit not at full price.

At this rate, on a long enough time scale, all games will be free on EGS.

What does this mean for humanity, and existence in general? Is consumerism ultimately futile? Should we work fiendishly to extend our lives into the thousands of years, so that we may eventually own all PC games via EGS? Who can really say.

Well, this art style wouldn't be my first choice, but I think you guys are having some rose tinted nostalgia. Especially about the original version of The Secret of Monkey Island... it looks pretty rough. Are you guys thinking of the Special Edition remakes maybe?
