Survive EULA has got to be a joke

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Public hearing in Hawaii concerning loot boxes with ESA lobbyist present.

 

You can skip to 2:30, if you want skip stuff not directly connected to the loot boxes.

 

 

I laughed hard when Chris Lee poked the guys with poker face "Pride and accomplishment" punch and have seen one of the guys interviewed failing to not laugh during that hearing :D

I like him, the cynic in me says that he's just grabbing for his 15 min of fame but also that he is playing the game masterfully. I can't fault him for taking advantage of a good situation.

Some gamer - "After the Battlefront 2 loot box debace, I don't know how any game company can become more hated than EA."

 

Konami - "Hold my beer."

But wait there's more!

Metal Gear Survive is called "Survive" because you gotta survive the money drain.

Economic survival is the meta theme of the game.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

What is Square Enix's obsession with porting phone versions of old games to PC?

 

Chrono Trigger is out on Steam today. And there's some complaints.

I don't mind the filter on scenes, FFVI's was worse. But the UI is a complete joke and the overworld is disgusting.

I rember playing that on SNES. The cavewoman could summon some giant dinosaur but it never did any damage.


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

IIRC Ayla's dino tail ability was set so damage was increased as Ayla's HP decreased.

This is where the one lonely guy in the back of the room yells out "Don't worry, someone will make a mod to fix that!"

It's a game I hear so much about but availability is surprisingly spotty for something so highly rated. On the Wii VC but not Wii U, and mysteriously absent on the underwhelming mini-SNES.

I bought the PSone versions of Chrono Trigger and FFVI from the PSN. I heard some complaints about those versions as well but at least they are closer to the original games. Still haven't played any of them though.

 

EDIT:

 

 

Why not!

Obviously a Beaker and Kermit parody, of course.

 

The very end bit was cool.

 

The ship navigation is very reminiscent of King's Bounty, as is the Deck combat—somewhat; though I don't see how to present any differently than KB did, and still have it do the job as well.

Their website has become crap, compared to how it used to be.

 

It's bizarre. It's them, but under new management... and minus George Broussard. They say the real name of the company is still Apogee Software... except there is another Apogee company that licensed the Apogee logo... and it's not related to them.

Yep but the only thing bad there is that Valve actually started charging people money for mods, things like Counter-Strike, Portal and Team Fortress were free but when they saw popularity arouse, they sought fit to make a profit cuz why not? Thus, prophetically starting the paid-mod practice in essense and retrospective - not that many people would actually realise this or want to admit it even.

 

Portal wasn't a mod, the gameplay prototype wasn't Portal. Valve pumped a lot of money into CS, TF, and DoD, they wouldn't have been successful without Valve. Also many mod developers turned their own mods into pay for stand alone titles. Why shouldn't they charge for their work, why should people get mods for free? You should just be grateful that some modders are willing to work for free.

 

Paid mods aren't bad, and platforms taking a cut isn't bad, many mod hosts charge or get ad revenue. The problem was that Bethesda, who rely on modders to make their games good because they have a talent deficit, wanted to take a cut for something that enhances their product, they wanted to take away money from modders who they benefit from.
