I don't know why people think that Tencent will do a good job with this. Why would they know anything about malevolent and censorious government-designed AI/cybersystem that seeks to subjugate or destroy human opposition?

Ohhhhhhh...

Reminds me of the best argument I've heard against homophobia. Can't remember which comedian said it but: "Everyone's a little gay, I can prove it. You sir, your'e a red-blooded american man, you watch porn right? Of course you do. When you're watching a scene, but you like it if the man has a tiny thin penis? NO! You want a big fat cock! See? You're a little gay!"

That was said by Joe Exotic to pick up his first husband. Probably not the best role model... Rolleyes

Ahhh, just like Kotaku and it's ilk. So concerned about what others could be doing, but never once do their minds turn to themselves and what they could be doing. So quick to demand other people spend their money. Reason number 4521 why no one should pay the slightest bit of attention to these whiny, entitled, nobodies who write for these sites...

I watched the clip... such a bizarre world we live in.

Riot has created a game in which it encourages violent execution of human-like characters with firearms for competitive sport. And that's acceptable.

LOL are you serious? I've never heard of anyone being an anti cartoon violence advocate on a games site before. Are you worried cartoon characters might get hurt in real life? What about bugs bunny cartoons is that animal abuse?


Yeah I watched the clip too. She isn't being harassed for being female, as they try to claim. She was being hit on by a minor. Sexism was not involved, so I don't know why they are framing it that way.

So you're saying the minor would be treating her the same way were she a male? Ok.

So you're saying the woman would be reacting the same way were the minor a female? Ok.

I had to look this up, since I can never remember the difference between Mechwarrior and Battletech. Big piloted clunky robot machines fighting each other.
Battletech (the recent video game) is an indie game by the tabletop game's creator (among others) that is turned-based and quite well executed. Mechwarrior 5 is a cash-grab by Piranha games, reusing much of their multiplayer game's assets in a buggy, awful UI-ed, and uninspired game that sold-out its fans to be an Epic exclusive. Just FYI.

1st - Who above the age of 12 uses the word "gross" (and isn't German)?

2nd - Surprised to see that this is a case of actual harassment. Considering Riot's paymasters, I figured it would be banning someone because they referred to the "Wuhan China Flu" online...

Looks like Shadow Tactics. I enjoyed Shadow Tactics, at least the concept of it. Part way through, though, it became obvious that there was usually one good way to solve the "problem" of that level. Once you deviated, you ended up in a dead-end that meant you would either have to get really lucky or you'd have to start over. It lost its luster after that. I'll put this on the radar. If it truly (as opposed to PR-speak) has multiple approaches to each level, I might pick it up...

Heuy is so much fun. Would have had no chance leaning it but my Dad worked it out by flying every day for a month and gave me the crib notes on how to trim it and keep it vaguely in control and not tearing up the transmission/engine whatever, otherwise it's like the old Bell in Flightsim, good for takeoff and flying fast but the second you want to slow, hover or land trouble! Can't wait for supercarrier the navy planes are already the most fun in DCS. F14 is the closest I'll get to a macross plane and I will never learn any of the fancy systems but that dosn't matter as getting them traps (Occasionally succesfully) is the most fun ever.

You might know this already but DCS is going to have a free "try and fly" MONTH starting tomorrow. The only two planes that won't be free to fly are the F-14 and the Saab Viggen. Everything else will be ready for takeoff at a button press.

In view of last months response, we are pleased to announce our upcoming Free For All event, starting April 19th, where you are welcome to try any and all our products (except campaigns) for free and without limitation for one month. This unlimited access to all our suite of products, including our top fighter jets, such as the F-16C, F/A-18C and A-10C Warthog will help take your mind off things for a while, giving you the opportunity to try something new, and to own it for 50% or less than the normal price.*

*Exclusions and comments:

All campaigns, F-14B and AJS-37 Viggen will not take part. JF-17 Thunder will have a 15.00 USD discount.

https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/news/2020-04-17_FT_MONTH/

Unfortunately, the only one I don't have is the F-14. It doesn't look like it will be discounted, either, so I guess I'll wait a little longer. It takes so long to get competent at flying any of the airframes that I can afford to wait for a deal, even if it takes years.

A society (and legal system) interested in justice, and not slavishly following legal doctrines, would respond to this by acknowledging the fact that the patent was violated, dismiss any and all penalties for the duration of the pandemic, and explain that the only way that such actions would be punished is if the infringement continued after the pandemic or were used to avoid paying for available products while the means to pay for them were there.

Of course, western society is so screwed up the legal system will probably find for the plaintiffs if they sue and award millions in damages...

There is an inverse relationship between the "accessibility" of the design tools and the long-term quality of the games made by them. Sure, you can make PUBG, DotA, or other lightning-in-a-bottle games using only modding tools. But you can only do it once. After that, it's just another PUBG or DotA clone. The first team to make an innovative game with the assets available in Core will reap the rewards. Everyone else will just be making a game that looks like that one...

How about implementing the game first? I wanted a space-fighter simulation. Wing Commander for the 21st century. I don't want first person shooters, survival mechanics, real-time strategy, mining and economic simulations, etc. I want to blow up not-Kilrathi in spaceships! How hard is that?!?! Apparently, for this bozo, it's damn near impossible...

Everything you need to know about the fall of western civilization in one article. We are now playing video games in order to pretend to raise children. I guess because actually raising children is too hard for the narcissistic losers nowadays? It would be funny, if it wasn't so sad. I'll brag about my real children, thank you...

Well, at least they weren't stupid enough to launch on Steam at full price (there's a 40% "discount" on this year-old game... how generous...). Though I notice that the full price is listed at $39.99 and I don't remember if that was the full price on release. Either way, I'm not paying anywhere near that much for Epic's sloppy seconds.

I find that exclusivity deals have just saved me money, because I really have no burning desire to play some of these games after waiting (and enough lets-plays and other material has come out to show me that I probably would have wasted my money if I had bought immediately... looking at you Phoenix Point & Julian Gollop). I'd have bought Mechwarrior 5 launch day full price if it had come out on Steam. Now, I'm honestly not sure if I'll even bother when it gets rereleased, there's just too much wrong with it based on the lets-plays I've watched. Oh well, hopefully that "exclusivity money" was enough to make up for my lost sale...

Since it's the first AAA title I'm aware of to have Epic exclusivity expire and I had any interest in, I picked it up on Steam today for $24 US. That's less than half the original price. If enough Steam buyers show up this week, maybe developers will re-think Epic exclusivity.

Nope. The exact opposite will be true. If people still buy even after the year, all that tells publishers is that they can take Epic's money first, then take our money later. The only way they'll rethink exclusivity is if the games that have it don't meet sales expectations, both during and after. Otherwise, you'll just teach them they can slap you around and you'll still come back for more...

Again, a company maintaining political neutrality doesn't mean the employees who work there can't express their political views. But when you are in the business of selling an entertainment product to as many people in your diverse market as possible, keeping said entertainment products appealing to all portions of your market is wise. Alienating a significant portion of your potential market just to forward your own personal politics seems stupid to me.

That said, lots of people still maintain a game is "being political" simply by virtue of including homosexual or minority characters, which seems weird to me.

On a personal level I WILL NOT play a game that pushes an agenda, regardless if it's one I agree with or not. That's not why I play games. I game to get away from all that pointless, incessant, back-and-forth shit. Fortunately for me the vast majority of games are made to be entertainment, not recruitment tools, so I rarely run into this.

I'd be shocked if the Giants land McDaniels. He's been dodging other HC interviews and jobs for the last couple of seasons. My speculation: he's got the keys from Kraft. When Belicheck retires, McDaniels will slide in as the next head coach in NE.
