Sorry, I haven't had enough coffee yet - you fired the new contractor, too?

No, we had a promising line on one, but he turned out to be too busy. As they all are.

DAMN! So those that are available right now are only not too busy because they are not really good.

Is there no support by the company your wife is working for? Some companies offer their help with such problems.

Funny seeing that mumps article here... I drive into Bellingham every week for my mail and grocery shopping. Didn't realize that Blue was reporting on news in my neck of the woods.

Vaccines give you chlamydia, so this is just the price we have to pay.

I heard vaccines make your dick smaller. Or was it the brain? People should just pray really, really hard to make mumps go away.

I think Blue should pitch his remodel as a new TV reality show.

How about a Telltale adventure? Stories from the Blue Tower would be good title. Episode 1: The Contractor That Moved Me (inspired by The Spy Who Loved Me).

People who don't really know Lovecraft's work think that anything with tentacles must be Lovecraftian.

The Japanese are REALLY REALLY LOVECRAFTIAN

Can't remember reading anything about a vending machine with used schoolgirl panties in any of Lovecraft's novels.

But will it take place on a farm? All levels on the very same farm? With about 2 undead showing up every hour or so? And will it have characters behaving stupid? People betraying other people for no other reason but a badly written screenplay? If they really want a The Walking Dead game, then they have to add this to the game.

I liked the first (short) season of The Walking Dead but this series jumped the shark already with season 2.

3 years in Alpha, how long in Beta? We might see a "release" in 2020 at this rate, at which time this game will look like an SNES game compared to what will probably be cutting edge by then.

Nah, they will just release a Charlie version after that.

Zombies and Vietnam War - finally two things combined that truly belong together!

Nationalist candidates will always be supported by Russia and/or China. Nationalists want their countries to care of themselves which usually means that they will leave unions and trade deals. Of course Russia and China welcome everything that makes the NATO, the European Union, and all other unions that rival their power less powerful. So it is in their best interest to support people like Trump, Le Pen, Boris Johnson, and so on. This does not prove that they are behind every hacking attempt, but especially big scale hacking of usually well defended networks depend on a lot of hardware and networking horsepower. And this is what foreign military and intelligence agencies have access to. Again: this does not prove anything but...

VR is HOOOOOOOT!!!!

From the article: "From the departure of co-founder Palmer Luckey and the stepping down of former CEO Brendan Iribe, to a major loss in a lawsuit with ZeniMax, it's safe to assume that things have not gone as planned for the virtual reality company owned by Facebook."

No kidding?

Cutter, this abbreviation is misleading when used in connection to games. Electronic Arts has nothing to do with DayZ.

Funny that you left out everything before this final joke and by this make it look stupid. What I wrote back then was that ignoring ANY censorship in countries would not hurt Steam (or Origin or Uplay and so on). Because if these online stores based in the US would sell to every paying customer all over the world, what would censoring countries do? Ban the physical goods from being sold in bricks & mortar stores? They already do if the non-censored game is banned. Turn off the internet in their countries (OBVIOUS joke 1)? Or (OBVIOUS joke 2) invade the US to stop them selling games to their citizens? Isn't it great how complete stories are sometimes different stories?

I also like bullshit like "But if we don't pay high prices, the people working on the product will be starved to death". Hilarious. Higher prices mean higher profits for shareholders not higher wages for the workers. Examples like e.g. Apple prove this. Did the news about new record profits for ActiBlizz a bit above this news mean that ActiBlizz is no longer
exploiting US programmers and IT staff with obscene overtime, screwing them out of royalties and code-and-release hiring practices
because the corporation has earned so much that US programmers and IT staff will now be showered with money? I doubt it. This is not how it works: higher profits = higher wages. It means higher shareholder value. Screw the people who actually made it happen.

Ah, whatever. Nowadays big corporations make politics and are always trying to find the sweet spot where people moan and whine but still don't do anything. Homo sapiens? Yeah, apes are apes and will stay apes.

Now where is my banana? Let me throw some more shit at stuff. Bye and out. I will look for some games with cheap prices from different regions allowing me to buy MORE games and by this support more evil corporations with the same amount of money. Evil me.

Being human is the same regardless of nation.

The sold product and the productions costs (if not produced in the very same poor country) are also the same regardless of nation. Right? But the price is not.

Both are luxury goods sold all over the world. The one at ridiculously low prices in "poorer" nations, the other one not. One world - one market - one price. At least for corporations...

And why again would be the highest price right now the world wide price again? Because of profit maximization? Or because spin doctors want to make people afraid to ask for "One prize is good enough for all of us on this planet"?

I love the idea that human rights should be basic rights for all people in every nation. Isn't it funny that these rights somehow stop when it comes to economy?
