Man, that's awesome. I really need to finally play this game. It has been sitting in my library for far too long.

This is great. I don't care for him or the channels like his, but this will give the smaller channels a chance to grow. There are many really great content creators out there, and this might be the perfect chance for people to go look for other things.

In reality they'll just migrate to 1-3 other channels, and they'll probably grow by a large margin, but one can hope.Reply

He's just deleting his channel. He said he isn't done with YouTube. This is probably all a marketing sham and knew exactly what he was doing before announcing this.

Yeah, I'm not going back to D3 for just a new character. And they make us pay for it as well. That's incredibly greedy, but I suppose it's to be expected from Blizzard. They are the kings of milking.

EA "working to restore access" to Origin for players in Myanmar, other countries' access uncertainEA "working to restore access" to Origin for players in Myanmar, other countries' access uncertain

This is shady as hell. Actually beyond shady. They're abusing the agreement, since the sanctions are no longer there. They should at the very least offer them access to their library, or give them their money back. They didn't have problems taking their money up until a few days ago, and the trade sanctions has been lifted for over 3 weeks.

I hope you guys keep pushing EA to do something about this. The frontpage of reddit posts only lasts so long, but we can't let them get away with shady shit like this. If it could happen to some country, it could happen to yours, whatever country you're from for any reason seemingly. And EA isn't the only platform we as consumers should be worried about. Valve and Ubisoft shouldn't get free passes either on this. Not that they did anything, but it is as likely to happen there, as it is on EA.

Plus, they've all sold to Burma for years, thereby breaking the US law, yet no word on that?

I'm voting with my wallet anyway, and not going to purchase anything from EA until this is resolved. Thank god for gog.com's DRM free policy.

Non-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platformNon-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platform

I did the math. Wasteland 3 will have to sell 2.5 million copies before the investors could start seeing return on their investment. Wasteland 2 sold 600K units, i believe a 1/3 of which under 50% discount.


This is an utterly bad investment.

It is indeed. Fig is a scam tbh, but the media just keeps posting whatever the companies give to them in form of press releases, without doing any sort of actual journalism, and asking questions of relevance.

Can we please get some proper reporting on the scam that is fig, instead of just posting whatever press release they feed the media?

Maybe one day.Reply

Pachter is a joke. 99% of his predictions doesn't come true. Why anyone put any credence in what he says is beyond me.

And so we get yet another postponement. And not even by a little bit. And what's the reason exactly this time ? "More features". Which? Sounds like a lot of drivel, and yet another postponement for the game that might never see the light of day.Reply

They know the whales are in need of milking so they're putting off the release until that need has been sated.

The point is, if he's comparing it to for example Diablo 2, then obviously he has false expectations and won't like the game regardless. It's like saying Baldur's Gate 2 was boring because it was nothing like the glorious Diablo 2, and there wasn't a loot fest like Diablo 2. What a dreadful game. It makes no sense to use that as a basis of comparison. You might as well say you didn't enjoy The Secret of Monkey Island because you didn't get to shoot things in the face like with Call of Duty, and there was no leveling up your guns.


I don't know about you, but I expect maybe a tiny bit more from journalists. They should at least sound like they know what they're talking about, don't you think.

But this feature is about people playing games they don't like. It doesn't really matter why they didn't like them, just that they didn't but continued to play. If this were a review of Divine Divinity I'd see your point.

Divine Divinity was not dreadful, you oaf. It was a really good oldschool rpg, and you can't compare it to Diablo 2, which is a game about defeating bosses and repeating gameplay. Finish the game? Start over. Finished it again? Start over again. Divine Divinity was a proper RPG. You can think it wasn't a good experience as Diablo, but you can't compare the two in such a manner. You also then complain about lack of loot showers in DD, which are present in D2. You can't be serious. Aren't you guys reviewers, who are supposed to actually know stuff about the games you talk about? About the only comparison that's fair to make is that both games are isometric.

I also noticed another jab at Ubisoft. Isn't that a little too easy. Oh hey look guys we also hate Ubisoft games because.. they're boring for.. reasons.Reply

Isn't the point of the anecdote you're referencing that someone played a game for ages that they didn't enjoy? I don't really see why it would matter whether you agreed or disagreed about the game specifically.
