I would love to take mass transit to my job that is an hour away. Unfortunately, that infrastructure doesn't exist. Hell, even if I lived within the city itself, there is no infrastructure to take mass transit to my job in a timely manner.

What irks me is that we have massive, unnecessary expenditures but we can't afford repairs or improvements to infrastructure.
Tax cuts come first, don't cha know.

There are just so many demonstrably false claims in Crytek's lawsuit that it's hard to take it seriously, especially given the calibre of the law firm hired to represent it.

There's a video here of a legal breakdown of the lawsuit.
I'm sure you saw this from an ACTUAL attorney

I am going out on a limb here, but I predict that the next wave of bans that Bluehole Studios has might be what it takes to push PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS into the number 1 spot.

DERP

I can't blame them. I'd laugh at a country that elected someone like Trump too. And don't get me wrong, the blame isn't all on Russia. The fact that their absurd propaganda worked so well speaks very poorly of the intelligence of certain areas of the US.

Thankfully in our country Presidents can't just swap between themselves and their hand-selected puppet every few years to get around term limits, so this too shall pass.
It has to better in a country where the President wins by a 98% margin. Think of the unity.
The disgusting piece of shit that lost the majority vote has no idea what unity is and while he's supposed to be negotiating with Democrats he’s tying them to immigrants who’ve committed violent crimes. What an ignorant SOB.

You don't need a large impact to turn an election. A million votes is less than 1% of the voting electorate. If you target the right states, a million votes could win you nearly every presidential election in the past century.

That video was made before Cryteks devastating response. It's not frivolous as they state because first of all, CIG didn't even attempt to defend themselves against the Bugsmashers & Facewear source code exposure allegations, nor the lack of promised bug fixes allegation, therefore the case cant be dismissed because of that alone.
Crytek's 'devastating' response was to simply restate the original claims, which are easily invalidated by the GLA released by CIG. The Bugsmashers & Faceware claim is without merit due to CIG having moved on to the Lumberyard engine. As for ongoing bug fixes, there was no timeframe specified and CIG has now changed engines to Lumberyard meaning the GLA has no validity.

Renegades Hang wrote on Jan 20, 2018, 15:00:
Crytek quotes the contract stating that the license is only for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 if they are sold together as one game and Squdron 42 is a feature of Star Citizen ("The Game" not "The Games") and isn't for, as the contract states, "any content being sold and marketed separately". Is Squadron 42 now being sold and marketed separately? You bet your ass it is.
CIG released the GLA and it had a specific provision for Squadron 42. Plus if they're no longer using the engine they can't be in breach of the contract.

Renegades Hang wrote on Jan 20, 2018, 15:00:
Finally, even if the court decides that CIG could switch to a different engine, the contract is still in effect. They state that in Section 2.4 CIG isnt allowed to promote any engine other than Cry's and that, "By its terms, Section 2.4 remains in effect for two years after the termination of the GLA (an event that has not yet occurred.)"
No. Section 2.4 states that CIG can't take the engine and license it to other companies - note the term 'in the business of'. It doesn't state that CIG can't license another engine and it's telling that Crytek doesn't list that clause in this response.

The exact language is: During the Term of the License, or any renewals thereof, and for a period of two years thereafter, Licensee, its principals, and Affiliates shall not directly or indirectly engage in the business of designing, developing, creating, supporting, maintaining, promoting, selling or licensing (directly or indirectly) any game engine or middleware which compete with CryEngine.

Crytek's claims do not stand up to scrutiny, something that has been validated by numerous legal experts who have looked in the details. There are basic mistakes, like listing Roberts Space Industries as the developer, and contradictory claims (e.g. that CIG is no longer using the engine yet also claiming CIG is using CryEngine for both Star Citizen and Squadron 42).

There's a reason that Crytek didn't release the GLA when it issued the lawsuit and that's because it easily invalidates most of the claims. Crytek is trying this as a last desperate measure before being declared bankrupt, with the company hemorrhaging employees and being unable to pay those still working there. It already had to sell off Homefront Revolution to Koch Media and do a deal with Amazon to create the Lumberyard spinoff due to its dire finances.
bingo, nothing to see here

It's lack of innovation is a strength in some ways. No crafting or taming or building or eating and shitting or any other obscure knowledge required. Just humans hunting humans with guns. It's an advantage to learn to use your sights to range-find but most the game occurs at sub-100 meters.

I'm still enjoying it immensely. It generates moments of insanity like no other game, without those moments being diluted by the rinse and repeat infinite respawn meaninglessness like with Battlefield. Almost every encounter is unique, and since positioning, teamwork and strategy are way more important than having the wired reflexes of a kid on amphetamines I feel may more responsible for my victories and failures.

My team-mate spotted some duders go into a house last night, and I was coming up behind them knowing I would almost certainly die because fuck assaulting a house and my geriatric reflexes, but he had the brilliant idea to just start spraying down the house. No targets or anything, and the bullets and gunfire and smashed windows covered my entry and the easiest kills I'll ever get from two distracted opponents.

Of course we get outsmarted way more often than stuff like that happens, but no AI enemy will ever give you that satisfaction.
It reasons like this that the game is so popular.
