    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    Did you hear a whooshing sound? You didn't read my whole post did you? Saying ' everything is a conspiracy ' is one of the oldest saws in the book , and the first nice tight example that pops into my mind when the concept of normalcy-bias rears it's head. Ultimately the YT strikes system...

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    Any endeavor that has two or more individuals working together towards a common goal is by definition an 'conspiracy' , so ( almost ) everything is , in actuality, a conspiracy. But wry word-smithing aside; when groups of people are working together toward common goals that infringe, sublimate...

    Electronic Arts Stock Falls 14% After Missing Q3 2019 Earnings Estimate

    This is the important bit; " ...kill game studios..." . i would add to that sentence: ' kill game studios and the career professionals and core teams who's creativity ignited or created a particular niche ' A single individual is rarely the sole creator of a viral product that resonates and...

    AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su Says EPYC Will "Double the Performance Per Socket"

    Also A.I. ( deep learning at this stage...but still ) in games would seem to need server type cpu architecture ( for multiple instancing problem solving ) married to graphics heavy cpu architecture for games that are 3 or four years out.

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    Yes, i wonder about the focus group they use at CBS that like a preachy Mary Sue ( which makes any type of character arc impossible ) as a lead character. But to add a bit to your financial info on STD ( again did they do that on purpose: STD? really? no focus group for the name contraction?)...

    Resident Evil 2 Gets a Demo This Week

    You hit the nail on the head there. Sadly that's the joke, Capcom in 2019 might ( might I say, but I do have hope ) be ( and this is one of those are you going to bet the farm? moments ) able to deliver a consumer experience that actually produces a POSITIVE result. This in direct contrast to...

    Resident Evil 2 Gets a Demo This Week

    Perhaps the fuss is the ideal of playing a game that is fun ( because it was designed when hardware forced core game elements to be fun or fail ) . Or the fuss could be about Capcom understanding WHY there is a retro gaming undercurrent ( always ) present and that simple ( cheap ) re-masters...

    Bethesda is Asking for Essays in Ban Appeals

    The threat of legal action seems to be the only thing that gets a rise out of them. This whole , almost surreal, situation with bethesda and FO76 makes one wonder if it's not some really elaborate performance art experiment disguised as a game release / professional business and their true goal...

    Bethesda is Working on a New Fallout 76 PVP Mode

    At a guess it already is . Some are speculating FUPM76 ( FUPAYME76 ) is a test platform for TES6 and Starfield MMOs ( shit ) , but the facts we are seeing do not track that logic ( i.e. What , exactly was the intended purpose of Fu76's creation ? what Primary objective was it to fulfill and...

    Discord Store Announces 90/10 Developer Revenue Split

    I did not like the 'permanently shackled to Steam' when I "buy" something concept when it was new ( has it been 15 years ? ) , and I still don't like it , but one must give Valve the credit for forging the spearhead of what history will certainly point to as the real beginning of functional...
