They did do one thing right, I can now remove games from my wishlist without having to reload the entire page and lose where I'm at.

I was watching the video and I was like "I can't tell the difference" Then I switched the video away from 360p.

It's people like this that create new laws. Nobody needed to be told "don't use a taser on a dead rat" and "don't torture fish" but one idiot and suddenly what is a relaxed environment is endangered for everybody. Frankly they should just delete his channel and outright ban him from making any more. Otherwise this guy is just going to come back with something even more extreme. Use legal force if you have to because this guy isn't going to stop unless the law outright tells him to.

That's one of the problems with always online games like that, you can't mod them, because that shows up on anti cheat things and looks very similar to something that would let you see around or through walls.

And why are prices soaring? Wanker crypto currency farmers, may they burn in hell.

You know what the sad thing about it is?

Transaction fees for Bitcoin have gotten so high that people have stopped accepting it. One youtuber I know outright stopped accepting bitcoin donations because the transaction fees didn't make sense. So at this point Bitcoin is becoming less of a currency and more of a stock or commodity to be bought and sold rather than spent.

The games industry can keep self-regulating lootboxes, says industry lobbyistThe games industry can keep self-regulating lootboxes, says industry lobbyist
Braneman Avatar
Yeah they aren't going to self regulate, this is where the money is whales can pull in literally tens of thousands of dollars. A month. Not over the lifespan of the game, a month. Nobody is going to let go of that unless the law literally tells them to stop.Reply

This. Self regulation is a pipe dream as long as fiduciary responsibility exists.

A lot of people don't know what a "whale" is in this sort of context, they don't mean somebody who spends 50$ a month on microtransactions. THIS is about the level of spending you can get out of whales, I've even heard of larger numbers upwards of 50,000$.Reply

Depressing to admit I have friends stuck in this cycle (1 I can say for certain spends £5,000+ per month, though his Family is wealthy enough to support his addiction without problems).


The point of the term is that their investment is not only ginormous from our perspective, but also from the developers perspective (being the 0.01% that make up 10%+ of a titles profits).

They aren't putting the gamer first. If they were putting the gamer first they wouldn't have to try and put out this dumpster fire in the first place.

Exactly. They're quite literally putting the Gamer last in this scenario. They've been pushing it more and more each year, discovering just how much they can get away with. Well now they know, and I hope they pay dearly for it.

That number is misleading, the Unity engine tutorial being released 250 times doesn't count.Reply

WoW’s lead PvP designer is the latest high up to move to a “new opportunity at Blizzard”WoW’s lead PvP designer is the latest high up to move to a “new opportunity at Blizzard”
Braneman Avatar
From what I heard PVP in wow right now is a mess, in theory everything being standardized is great, however they balance things wrong. If say Blood Death Knights are doing too much damage they'll dump their strength, however that is what their survivability is based on so they'll become more fragile when it was only their dps that was too high. It's stuff like that, that completely undermines the whole purpose of standardized stats in the first place.Reply

Pvp in wow has been a mess since after we left vanilla which was the only time when it was more or less balanced. All this pvp gear and fancy new stuff they did is just fubar. If it aint broke dont need to reinvent the wheel.
