Well at least they have inadvertently let us know to avoid another shitty port. No reviews suggests bigger problems.

Keys scammed by email are legit "because they come from the developers", say G2AKeys scammed by email are legit "because they come from the developers", say G2A

While I disagree with most things G2A say, I think they are right on this one.

It is not their responsibility to catch keys that devs have doled out to people they incorrectly thought were youtubers/streamers. It is the devs responsibility to vet the people they give keys to. Just because it's a process that takes a long time or that they don't like doing, does not mean they get to shift the responsibility off to others like G2A.

It would be nice if G2A could help them with the process but trying to make it purely G2A's responsibility is just shifting blame for their own mistakes. It also shows a misunderstanding of the problem. Even if G2A did offer a blacklist code feature that devs could enter keys into before they hand them out to supposed reviewers, they would just get sold elsewhere. G2A is far from the only grey market seller, it is just the most well known.

The first line of defence on this issue is the devs themselves. They are the ones who need to solve this issue, ideally with a process they could automate. Hell, they could even work together to create a joint website attached to a database, that can validate (set of arbitrary requirements, certain amount of subs or followers etc, with some account e-mail verification) and store trusted reviewers/previewers. Devs jump on to site search a name and get told if it's a trust worthy person to share keys to.

Acknowledging them, especially in such a public manner, is giving the trolls exactly what they want, and so the cycle continues.Reply

Ignoring them doesn't work and never has. It's a myth.

Define real world and then explain to me your rationale of how making real money via doing work somehow doesn't fit the definition of a job.


Just because it isn't boring, menial, minimum wage labour does not mean it isn't a job.

Don't you guys get it? He works on "the internet" so he's "lazy." Come on everyone, gotta work on your old man narrative. Damn kids.

Don't you whippersnappers know that it's not a real job, unless you are a wage slave working for the majority of your waking life on minimum wage barely being able to afford to stay alive. All while someone else gets rich off your hard work?

They are american based however they have been moving much of the development over to the Foundry 42 subsidiaries (based in the UK and Germany), supposedly because people are cheaper to hire.


I'm a software developer myself so see their adds quite a lot.

Foundry 42 is focusing on Squadron 42 specifically. Germany is focusing mainly on engine development. The other studios are doing the MMO.


Of course, there's overlap.

I live near Foundry 42 UK and they are constantly hiring. Either they have a massive amount of staff or their employee turnover is through the roof.

Roberts seems very much like Schafer or Molynuex. Developers who had major success in the earlier days of gaming and when they had publishers wrangling them in. They don't understand that you can't just add a feature to a game quickly and easily anymore. They don't understand how to control the scope of their projects and get distracted by new ideas too easily. They see something and think it can just be added easily on a whim.Reply

I live close too. Always popping up in job adverts.

"I started with nothing" No he didn't. He came from a nice middle class family. He even got boating lessons as a child.

What exactly does he think makes America shit? The current state of America is what made him rich. Or is it somehow America's fault that they fucked up with the rift and it's just been PR disaster after PR disaster?

Like a racist Pachter has assumed that all people in an associated group are the same. He thinks PC gamers are the same. He seems to think we are all like the morons over at PC master race.

My preferred control scheme is not KB/M, I will use a controller in most games. I am not averse to consoles either.

Why will I not be getting a PS4 pro? For the same reason a lot of console gamers have said they had no interest in it. They are focused on this pseudo 4K that isn't really 4K so it pointless. It's Sony just trying to mislead people all over again like all the nonsense with GDDR5. If all developers are going to do with the Pro is pseudo 4K then why would I buy into it. If they used it to make their games 1080/60 then I would be interested.

Uncharted 4 and Horizon at 1080/60? Sign me the fuck up. However, seeing how the PS4 struggled to do a PS3 game at 1080/60 I doubt the Pro is actually capable of 1080/60. Which is why they are now focuses on "4K".

And knowing the idiots of the internet they will mistake it's depiction of racism for a game that is actually racist.

In the same way Witcher 3's depiction of how women were treated in the medieval period it's setting emulates, was seen as sexist.Reply

While they completely ignore how men are being sexually objectified as much and as badly as woman in media.
