It could just be me, cause today is an insomnia day, but I don't give a shit about Hong Kong. China is a boorish dick. China has always been a boorish dick. Why is anyone surprised when they act like boorish dicks?
We aren't. We are surprised/annoyed/disappointed US corporations are attempting to silence people who call the Chinese government "boorish dicks".

just watch the Southpark episode that got it banned in china

it will answer all of your questions

you know, the multi billion extremely profitable company could just build/expand existing games studios in China and have them copy/paste or make games specifically for Chinese audiences

I get it, Blizzard has something that is in their Contract, but since when can the employment contract supersede state or federal law?

They stopped using a couple of streamers, they aren't Blizzard employees.


This entire thing sucks. Blizzard I don't feel had much choice in the matter, not that gamers are going to get that. Politicians are going to latch on, because it's free publicity. Nobody will acknowledge that the U.S. hasn't put any real pressure on China over Hong Kong in a way that will protect businesses here who will encounter situations like the NBA or Blizzard has, and the administration has even apparently gone so far as to say they'll stay quiet and out of the way on the issue.

And people will rage on Reddit, who has a huge stake of it bought by Tencent, and keep playing other games whole or partly owned by Tencent, on platforms whole or partly owned by Tencent, all while ranting about a boycott on Blizzard and standing up for Hong Kong. The internet gaming community far too often is a stupid joke and it's embarrassing to be part of it.

so what do you propose?

Start a business that refuses to do business with or treats LGBT people unfairly, and see how sacrosanct the government considers that.
In alphabets defence, this was probably all ai/algorithm/automatic/automation based.

Even their advertising system is all hands off, that's how you get shit like this. The LAPD’s Job Ad Ending Up on Breitbart Is Hardly a Mystery
tldr “automatic placement.”

not only are algorithms managed and groomed by humans with political biases, ads by big corporations, NGOs and governments are approved and managed by human eyes

have not the leaks and whistleblower complaints from within google and the such, enough to convince us of that?

Pretty much this. He's looking for a payout/extortion on 23 year old music. They'll settle out of court and he'll get to buy a new sleeper mini van aka home w/the proceeds.

So it's only scummy when someone sues to protect their IP rights from Gearbox, but perfectly fine for Gearbox to sue someone to protect their IP?

Don't engage the troll, you are wasting time with RedEye9

whomever that supports Gearbox and Randy is sucker for corpos

Being owned and destroyed by US hedge funds is soooo much better than by their Chinese counterpart! Right, guys? Guys? Hello?!
I'm not real sure where all the China hate comes from. Every thing you own from the clothes you wear to your mouse probably has all or some of its parts made in China. Why should pc games be any different.

Westerners, or more specifically Americans are generally programmed from birth to hate anything that has a whiff of communism on it. Which is a shame since ideology has stopped being a true political force in the world a long time ago, and is mostly used as a way to scare people into voting one way instead of another.

you don't read international news ?

This type of thing worries me because it's one of those things that could be so disruptive that the industry has no choice but to make drastic changes in business model.

You wouldn't get even 10% the number of digital sales you get today if there were a pool of "used" copies circulating large enough to cover the entirety of demand. There'd be no reason to buy from the publisher when you could buy from another user.

They'd have to go full-on Games-as-a-service with their own external authentication layers or go under.

They're making changes to the business model whether we like it or not. As soon as the bandwidth can support it, all the major publishers will switch to a Netflix-style streaming model for games. This this "Do you own or rent your Steam games?" becomes moot.

then members of parliament can make a new law that says games are still owned by consumers regardless of the method of delivery, and that ownership still comes with all the perks of physical ownership

it's only when politicians are bought off by big tech that we consider businesses are 'people with rights' , like in the US or UK.

"but no one gets mad when a game is exclusive to steam!"

Yeah, because Steam doesn't make a publisher go exclusive to them. Any publisher can take their game to GOG, or Windows Store, or itch.io, or whatever. Steam doesn't dangle money in front of a dev and tell them "If you take this you can't go anywhere else"

In your defense of Epic Game Store, I'd like you folks to be a little less facetious.

They don't have to dangle money because they're by far the biggest. That's Epic's entire point. PC game sales needs better competition. As for those competitors you mentioned, they've been competing with Valve for years and making no headway.

except this competition is bad for the consumer.

are you not consumer too?

Know what else is bad for the consumer? Monopolies like Steam.

so please enlighten us as to how exactly is STEAM bad for consumers?

(we already have a long list of reasons why EGS is bad.)

once you get above a certain pay grade, the contract that you sign wouldn't allow getting fired for no reason.


Nope. Whatever contract you sign must still be in compliance with local, state, and federal law. Now, the company can abrogate that right if they so choose (hint: they never do in a Right to Work state because it opens them up to legal jeopardy) but it would be exceptionally uncommon for it to happen. Regardless of the position or salary attached.

better contracts terms is ABOVE the minimum required by law.

go find a lawyer and ask whether his contracts says it is ok for him to be fired by his firm in a RIGHTTOWORK state.

heck, go ask a CEO, and he will tell you he's no farmhand.

The court of public opinion has always been about perceived credibility. How many false accusations have we simply not heard about because the accuser wasn't at all credible and couldn't get anyone to amplify their shit? On the other side of the coin, we have people who aren't at all credible whose accusations were genuine but their social standing or history prevented people from taking them seriously.

It's hard to know exactly to what degree these sort of accusations can be weaponized, as we tend to only hear about it when it happens to gain traction. It creates a survivorship bias where we don't see the false accusations that went nowhere and were correctly dismissed. Certainly when the accusation goes wide, it's devastating.

But how easy is that to do? At minimum you've got to have someone who has spent alone time with you, and is pissed at you. That person also has to have someone with a strong social media presence who has the ability and willingness to amplify their accusation, otherwise they are just yelling at a cloud.

I'd be super interested to see a study/experiment done where a scenario is drummed up so a fictional accuser goes after some fictional accused. They could test for how exactly different variables effect the success or failure of an accusation. They could even fabricate differing levels of evidence for each scenario.

You share good points. However, you don't need a study or experiment. It exists in the form of the Duke lacrosse case and, not related to rape but related to public opinion, the Centennial Olympic Park bombing. In the former, the "media presence" was the university the three individuals went to coupled with the "victim" using survivorship bias to drum up sympathy. In the later, the bomb ignited on U.S. soil during the 1996 Olympic event about a year after the Oklahoma City Bombing. Everyone was angry and wanted justice, which led to mob mentality and a borderline drumhead resulting in the media gutting Richard Jewell's life. In both cases, the coverage was intense. In both cases, all individuals targeted had their lives destroyed. That's why the court of public opinion is brutal. It's why it took Monica Lewinsky decades to have a semblance of peace.
No one had their lives destroyed at Duke. The media was immediately skeptical, it was the idiot prosecutor who wasn't (his life was destroyed.)

Can you name a single false accusation that was shocking? You keep harping on Duke. No one believed her because her story was garbage. Yet the mocking of her definitely kept others with true stories from coming forward.

You easily empathize with those falsely accused, because you can see yourself there. But false accusations are exceedingly rare. It happens to, what, 1 in 50,000 men? 1 in 500,000? 1 in 5 women get raped in the us. 1 in 3 experiences sexual violence. The numbers aren't even comparable. But any time there's a discussion of rape, frightened men immediately need a deep discussion on the state of false accusations in this country.

Smollett.
and he got away with it

oh you mean sexual
then Kavanaugh

or do you mean for profit?
then MICHAEL JACKSON
people even profit by making documentaries after he is dead to profit off false accusations

or you mean something within the circles Zoe hangs out with
then Vic Mignogna


Wait, you think that people got away with false accusations of Kavanaugh? Furthermore, you're willing to put your credibility on the line that they're false?

Even moreso, you're willing to say Michael Jackson is innocent?!

Lastly, the Smollet incident is different, no, as it wasn't to smear somoene?

all yes to that

see, even you are making false accusations. Do you believe in the RussianHoax too? you really do let mass media take power over your beliefs oh so easily.

Smollet = you think false lynching claims does not target someone? i;m not going to answer that in this forum
