Kind of dig the Homeworld style cutscenes. Gives it a different flair than your typical canned CGI cutscene or in-engine cutscene

So he’s been arrested for something that might be vaguely child-exploitative, and hasn’t been charged with any crime. That’s some truly unimpressive reporting by that “news” channel.

There's really not much information, but other news sources have speculated that this type of arrest typically leads to production of child pornography charges.

Arrested without charges?

I always thought, call me naive, that an arrest requires a warrant and a warrant requires a charge.... silly me, right?

It's a complex subject and varies from state to state but generally speaking, you can be held for up to 72 hours before prosecutors are forced to decide whether to charge/release you.

So can they release you on hour 73 and take you into custody again for 72 hours indefinitely? That seems ripe for exploitation...

The jurisprudence on the 4th amendment is quite clear. If they want to abuse their latitude, they will be sued and can potentially held criminally liable, and they risk the courts dismissing the charges with prejudice.

I see they're still fucking that G-Sync chicken. Costs wayyy to much for a G-Sync monitor compared to Freesync, and Freesync monitors are much more ubiquitous

The game was fun enough to be worth 75% off for sure. Different spin on the Assassin's Creed/Watchdogs gameplay with a decent story.

Modders bring Battlefield 2142 back from the dead, multiplayer working, featuring even custom maps.

What about the in-game billboards? Futureweapons is long gone.

Sell hats, gun skins, and a chance at a sweet looking knife that doesn't physically alter your abilities in game, not ingame skills. Makes Valve more money than God

Considering all the random shit like flamethrowers, panzerfaust, air cover, etc, I wish this was on Frostbite so at least we'd get some destructible environments to go with all the carnage. It's really unfortunate that it's 2017 and Call of Duty has made no progress in 15 years on environment destruction.

The ship of stupid sailed when Ultima online and EQ became a thing, normalizing online drm. We got generations of kid who are ok with basically the theft of software from their computers and no privacy because they are dumb as a bag of hammers.

Oh look, it's this guy again

EA/2015 would've had a better chance suing Activision/Infinity Ward after the MOHAA team defected and built what is essentially the same game in the same engine for Activision with different maps than these clowns have of winning any court battle

Yea, not going to matter. Members of 2015 left after Medal of Honor Allied Assault was released to go to Infinity Ward to make another Quake 3 engine based WW2 shooter that looked and played mostly the same

E3 was just as busy in the early 00s before they drastically reduced the tickets they used to hand out like water to industry folks and "press". And just as easy to get into with a makeshift badge.

So the KKK is in the trailer working alongside the Nazis...

Guess the writers never got the memo that the Klan is a masonic organization and Hitler was vehemently anti Freemason.

We'll just casually ignore the antisemitism

Steam gives me ease of portability, patching, etc. No discs, no library to manage. And it's not going away, unlike Impulse.

I've got no hate for win10. I don't have any ads, unless they're showing up in places I don't go, which would be a rather stupid place to put them. It runs great, the ONLY issue I had with it was when I first installed it and had a pair of 970s, it saw them as a single 8gb card, and refused to believe otherwise. Disabling one let me install the drivers, and then re-enabling the second one worked as expected. SLI is dead anymore, so those 970s have new homes and have been replace with a single 1080.

Rambling! Point is, Microsoft does NOT want to keep supporting their old OS', and honestly that's their choice to not support new hardware. I'm sure Nvidia/AMD would LOOOOVE to only have to write one set of drivers, but neither one wants to be the first to say "this card only supported under Windows 10", because gamers want the latest and greatest, except when they don't because oh noes spying on me/ads, let me complain about it on my smartphone.

Agreed on all counts. I found Windows 7 to be the best OS since Windows 2000, and now I say that about Windows 10. I've got zero complaints.

Nobody has mentioned the Korean conflict. That would be more interesting than Vietnam.

Korea makes a great air war setting. F-86 vs Mig15 is a classic even matchup and a significant advancement from WW2. The ground war, not so much. Basically all late WW2 era equipment.. guns, tanks, etc.

Realistically, for a game like Call of Duty, the only thing the Korean War provides is a new setting, but that setting won't be much different than World at War and neither will the weaponry

Are we really going to let Activision get off so easy about this? With these layoffs of invalid reasoning?

Hopefully some articles are written that really stick it to Activision about this whole situation.

Laying off employees because their product failed with the invalid understanding of why it failed.

Companies should have a reserve fund that would pay for their own stupid mistakes, instead of laying off employees to pay for it.

This kind of crap is just going to continue, unless pressure is applied.

Laying off employees after a game launch is pretty much par for the course. Game development is not unlike construction. Finish a project, project goes bye bye, you get "laid off", and then you find the next game to build.. sometimes at the same place, sometimes somewhere else.

The same would apply if this were a maintenance/live team, except the timing is different than with the core build team.
