Played the games back in the day. They weren't my cup of tea. One Must Fall 2097 was a much better game with Jazz in it. Also, why the hell aren't there more Fighting games with RPG elements like OMF 2097?? That's the way to bring them to the mainstream.
Wait, Jazz was in OMF 2097? How on earth did I miss that?

And RPG elements in fighting games have given way to unique classes. Which makes it clearer to the opponent what the abilities are of a fighter.

Jazz is there, his girlfriend and the turtle are too. Link. There was a pretty deep unranked challenger mechanic in the game and you could get several skill updrages that would make your robot pull off absolutely insane things.

I want to select a fighter and upgrade him the way I want to and get money and go through some kind of open story/world. All that, but still a serious fighting game. A lot of games have tried some things, but they were either a completely new genre, or it was some kind of simple side thing with no real effort put in.

When we get amazing internet connections(in 30 years?), these kinds of services will become the only option, but for now, with the shitty connections we have, these streaming services are almost useless. I especially don't see why this one thinks it'll be successful.

I also don't get what Valve has to gain from this. Firewatch was a pretty good walking simulator. Not the best, but it had more gameplay than most. I can't wait for their next game though, it looks like such a rich idea.

What would you consider the pinnacle of the genre? Edith Finch?

I actually didn't play Edith Finch or Tacoma yet. My favorite so far was Gone Home.

Bummer about AvED getting axed. Instead we get more Grey's Anatomy and Super Star shows... Oh well. Maybe Raimi can interest Netflix or Amazon into some more AvED.

The show's ok, but nothing great. Honestly, the schtick gets old fast.

Doesn't matter, AvED is just fun to watch and I want more. I like the idea of Netflix buying it.

Wasn't there a hugely popular new Doom in 2016?

I hope they learned from the disaster that was 3.

3 was soooo bad. They were like, "you know what Serious Fans want? Corridors and a heavy Call of Duty influence."

I love megaman X, but I can't get excited for this. I wish they added new game modes or characters or something. They did add a boss challenge mode, but that's not very interesting compared to a new character or full game mode. The PSP version of Megaman X had a pretty big secondary mode where you played as Sigma who worked very differently. No trace of that here.

The wage gap persisted across all fields with women holding a bachelorís degree having a median income of $68,342 in 2016, while men with the same level of education earned $82,082, according to Statistics Canada data released Wednesday.

I didn't look at the stats and I have no idea what the truth is, but if you look at this with a critical eye, having a bachelor's degree doesn't mean that you're going to have a job with a specific salary. There's low paying bachelor jobs and high paying ones. What may be happening is that women tend to choose bachelors that lead to lower paying jobs. So, these numbers do not necessarily mean that there's a pay gap.

If you do the salary average, which is what created this article's headline, of course women will earn less. The higher paying jobs like engineering are mostly occupied by men.
Uh, that is kind of the point. Now as to your ascertain that women have less interest in high paying job types then men, I can't speak to that. But if you have any documented evidence I'd be glad to look at it. Even if it exists, it would be difficult to account for women who avoid male dominated professions simply because they don't want the hassle of doing it.

Personally, I think it is reasonably clear there is still a fair amount of social pressure/thinking/momentum which causes reduced support for women in engineering and other male dominated professions. It isn't an easy problem to solve...

I never said that women have less interest in high paying jobs in general. I was talking about game companies. Programmers are generally the highest paid apart from the people at the higher echelons of management. There's a lot of programmers on a game project and they usually are almost all men. I didn't do any scientific research on the subject, but it's just clear from my life experiences that women like programming less. Are there factors that affect a woman's decision to go in sciences, absolutely, but I think that the biggest reason they go in science less is that most don't want to.

Edit: I re-read what I initially wrote and it does sound like I was speaking in general. While it's probably the case in general, I don't have much experience with that, only with games.

If you ask me, it's because women are less interested in that, but if you go the "women are discouraged from going in science" route, the issue still isn't with the pay.

Except for rare exceptions where there's actual huge misogynists in power, there's no pay gap, it's a lie. If you absolutely want men and women to earn exactly the same in average, you're going to have to force women into jobs they aren't interested in, or pay women more than men for the same job.

From what I saw, it looks like it plays mostly like just another generic third person action game with light rpg elements. I really like the story and setting, but I fear that this game won't be for me.

That good eh? Well now I have to play this thing. lol

It's the most mediocre and repetitive third person shooting ever. The location is the blandest and brownest ever. The story is all about dropping random names of people and organizations and you don't give a single damn about any of it. The "twist", which is the only reason some people like the game, is a load of overrated BS in my opinion. The best this game can give you is rare instances of gore porn. I'm sorry if I'm hurting the feelings of the people who like this game, but I really hate it Keep liking it and do your thing.

I hear that the last update changed the controls and made the game worse though.
When did you hear that? I started in January and it seemed fine to me.
