Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

Pharmaceutical companies should just be straight-up nationalized. If we can do it with health care as a whole, we can do it something which is merely a sub-component of health care. Yes, there's potential issues with that, especially around innovation, but at this point there's no way that any such...

oh my god i can't stop watching I was there for that panel. The context was even better. That's the director/producer for Final Fantasy XIV, being asked why a boss targets people for a mechanic in 100% reproducible but 0% predictable patterns. If you bring the same people on the same classes, they'...

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

The (if true) part is key, isn't it? There's talk of "Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night." being chanted, but that talk is on sites alongside words like "pampered decadent so-called anti-fascists", and apparently it's the worst they could dig up. The...

Re: SHOCKtober

Not truly a scary movie, but, 32) He Never Died (2015) What would otherwise have been a fairly humdrum affair is a fascinating slow burn of a story thanks to Henry Rollins's incredible performance as a man truly incapable of giving a shit about anything. The man has this angry deadpan style that tur...

So CDPR/Good Old Games just tweeted a dogwistle in support of Trump's plans, and apparently this is fully in character for their PR guy. https://i.imgur.com/rZV4uJd.jpg ... Dammit. Well, so much for Cyberpunk '77. The entire framing of the game's narrative has been ridiculously transphobic from the...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

It really did feel like, while Dragon Warrior 3 was where the series finally started to come into its own as video games, it wasn't until Dragon Warrior 4 that they were actually RPGs. This game has legs.

Re: Game musings and news



With the 100 hour work weeks thing, followed by the outpouring of Approved Developer Statements that swore that wasn't the case, plus what the results seem to be ... I dunno. Seems bad.

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

To sum up the release craziness, imagine a triple-A company releasing a big-budget main installment of its flagship series on the Playstation 3 two years into the Playstation 4's life cycle. Talk about a different era, eh? It'd be like releasing the first Dragon Quest in the US in nine years on the...

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

I mean, Windows 10 is fixable to a usable state with several days worth of effort and research. So if I absolutely *have to* switch at some point, then grumble grumble fine. But that's a topic for another thread. Yyyyeah when I got a new computer I put Windows 10 on it and it took a few minutes to ...

It's okay, now that he's taken the stance that throwing a rock at someone's window is exactly as bad as a letterbombing campaign, maybe someone will correct that.

1054360628817809408 The full article is great too. Apparently Amazon's similar attempt resulted in a systematic bias which straight-up excluded all female candidates, and they had to chuck 10 years of work in the dumpster when they couldn't fix it. Hard to tell whether this was the result of a bad ...

Re: Guess the Name of the Movie they're going to make about Trump

I think we all know that if he's impeached, the movie's going to be called You're Fired.
