News Comments > Crytek Suing Cloud Imperium

It's all in the document.

In that Agreement, Defendants promised, among other things, (i) to use the CryEngine game development platform exclusively and to promote that platform within the video game, (ii) to collaborate with Crytek on CryEngine development, and (iii) to take a number of steps to ensure that Crytek's intellectual property was protected. Defendants utterly failed to follow through on those promises

After listening to a lot of Leonard French, here's my take:

This is what one party is claiming the other party did/didn't do. It's for the court to decide where the truth in the statement is.

I've watched ChristopherOdd do some Let's Play videos for this game. It has this interesting Warcraft RTS feel to the units, though I feel like the Rangers overplay their sexuality in the selection audio.

Yeah, a stock 3025 Shadow Hawk is heat neutral, and can't generate any heat barring damage or special environmental conditions.

The SHD-2D disagrees with you, but the -2H and -2K both think you're a good dude.

It's a lot of fun. Probably... 75-80% faithful to the tabletop. Most of the changes I understand and agree/am fine with. Some I have issues with. Nothing is a show stopper for me.

What did you have an issue with?

This is like the one thing this game doesn't need. Superficial variety. The last expansion pack that added AI races was pretty good. The game would be perfect if it added more variety that actually reflected in specific gameplay changes. As it is playing with most of the species in the game feels exactly the same with each playthrough.

The dev team is working on a gameplay expansion. I don't see an issue with the art team having an expansion to call their own. It's not like there's a great amount of overlap between the teams, so you're not dealing with a "rob Peter to pay Paul" scenario.

Havenít tried the Xcom2 expansion yet maybe that brings a bit more of that back.

It doesn't. It's still a helluva lot of fun, but in a different manner.

I dunno... Price is kind of steep for what you get. Just ten portraits? :-/

Plus the ship models, the voiceovers, and the music work.

But I get where you're coming from. Do I want to drop eight bucks on this? Probably not. But the great thing is I don't need to. I can pick up the gameplay DLC and skip the cosmetic DLC, as they're sold separately.

Avoid any licensing issues by using established properties...

The fastest way to run into licensing issues is to use established properties.

Isn't it more waking the Lion? Traditionally China was described as a 'sleeping lion'.

There's a quote attributed to Mao: "In waking a tiger, use a long stick."

I'm looking forward to seeing if the expansion will include attaching air wings to armies, allowing them to automatically rebase at forward air fields. Combined arms? Yes please!

18. Re: Newegg Accused of Ponzi Scheme Oct 24, 2017, 14:31 Peter M. Smith
 
A Ponzi scheme requires new investors to come in, using their investments to pay the old investors. I'm not sure where we're seeing that with Newegg. Now Hong-Seok Park *was* convicted of operating a Ponzi scheme, but this issue with Newegg looks like a garden variety case of fraud.

But yeah, Cyberpunk sounds like they want to vary it enough to be endlessly replayable.

Can you imagine if CDPR went with Shadowrun instead of Cyberpunk? All that chrome goodness, but then throw Tolkien in on top of it?

I'm not sure if soda taxes are a good idea or not.
In the case of Cook County (this tax wasn't enacted at the city level, it's a county-level tax) soda tax there was no desire to improve the health of the citizens of the county. Only the health of the county's bottom line. The first thing Toni Preckwinkle said after the tax was repealed was there would be across-the-board cuts coming, as the county was (if I remember the report from news radio) expecting $200m from the tax.

Even though I don't live in the county, I work in the county, so I was roped into dealing with this nonsense. I ended up bringing in my drinks from home and storing at my desk, rather than dealing with the additional taxes.

The only reason I clicked "I agree" was so I could login and access my previously purchased games.

Please tell me if you ever go to court over this matter. I would love to see the look on your face when the judge explains to you what agreements mean, and the look on your lawyer's face when they get threatened with sanctions.

Fist bump on the proper Chipotle ordering etiquette.

*fistbump*

Still, I'm not sold on chorizo in general. Nor am I too keen on their queso, or at least I'm not keen on paying what they want me to pay.

You restrict the days you eat tacos to one per week? Heathen.
