BioWare Montreal is now a support studio as Mass Effect is put on hold, say sourcesBioWare Montreal is now a support studio as Mass Effect is put on hold, say sources

They should all be let go and other developers should be weary of them if they employ them.

I wouldn't feel comfortable letting them handle anything "huge" because they would let their personal bias bleed into the game and it's quality would suffer so it could cater to their beliefs.

For example: Bioware Montreal actively advocated for "unattractive female faces" because they believed it was marginalizing women gamers. They also don't believe (at the time of ME:A production) that the majority of their player base were young males.

Both of which are complete nonsense; and female AND male gamers should be appalled that Bioware Montreal would publicize this and still create a game with a lead female AND shooting.

This is the type of behavior the COD WW2 team is using: "They are making COD WW2 to prevent WW3." In their own words they believe that by creating WW2 COD they will stop WW3 from happening.

It is the biggest load of bull crap and gamers shouldn't support this type of behavior. It is the same thing as saying, "We are creating this porno so more of our player base (preteens - young adult) will be celibate."Reply

Er, yeah. You may want to cite some souces for some of that.

will never trust Ubisoft after The Division.

If you must buy from them make sure it is available offline and has all the content because I'm not going to keep paying more than $60 for 1/6th of the content and then have to grind ON THE INTERNET for the rest of the 5/6th that I payed MY MONEY with.

not to sure how to feel about them hamstringing the dual classes by making them 75 to 85% less capable than a single classed character.

If they want to balance it better they should allow you to access dual class specific abilities/spells/traits once you put points in a secondary class. This way they can control the number crunch and balance the character better.

Valve under spotlight as EU Commission considers if regional Steam keys are anti-competitiveValve under spotlight as EU Commission considers if regional Steam keys are anti-competitive
Daniel Mtanous - USA Avatar
EU go bully someone else. Stop trying to make goods as cheap as possible so good people go out of business and lose jobs. Your concerns are noted but you aren't here to help people, you are here to help yourselves first.

Steam is in complete compliance with Free Trade laws and 'geo-blocking' (har har nice long word there) or region-locked keys are necessary to prevent piracy.

The issue is no other business wants to start selling keys because they don't have the experience that Valve does or want to put up with the work that Valve does. Those businesses want to launch a website and instantly become the 'cream of the crop' without little investment.

I have your number EU, you are nothing but a bunch of ham thieves looking to see whose sandwich you can steal! (EU are thieves, stealing in the name of being fair (for all nationalities) because it isn't 'fair' that Steam has a ham sandwich and you (all nationalities) don't, but it is 'fair' to force them (Steam) to give it to you (all nationalities).)

My early-2015 MSI 1150 Krait Edition motherboard has an M.2, if that helps you put it in perspective.

What kind of motherboard has a horizontal PCI-E slot? what other use would that have? SODIMM Ram?Reply
Dave James Avatar

It's designed for the M.2 PCIe interface that's built as standard into most modern Intel boards. It's an SSD specific slot.

Banished review snippet Does playing Banished leave you relaxed?
It is finicky at the start but once you get your city started you can coast for hours just monitoring your citizens activities.

I usually only play 1 type of government, but there are times where you will have to adapt if you want to stay "El Presidente".

Actually, that kind of would be in keeping with Fallouts themes and tones...

You can't back this sort of behavior!
Seriously though, As the Pope of the Internet I will bless each and everyone of you for $35, heck $34, IF! and only if you promise not to read a walk-through. Also, I'll write you all a pretty email and include a fancy cat picture.

What do you say?Reply

Did you... did you seemingly fail to get the joke and then make the joke yourself? I find that baffling! How does that even happen? Did you think that this 'DLC' was being offered unironically, so you'd make an ironic joke about it to be clever, whilst not realising that the original 'DLC' was satire in and of itself?
