Why is it so hard for you to not be a dickhead? Some of us want to play the game free of spoilers or some hot take on it. Let me judge it on its own merits.

You know what you're right. I'm sorry. I overreacted.

I'm exhausted from the horrible poo poo going on and reading about this thing in my escapist thread just pushed me over the edge and that's not fair to y'all, the creators, and the game itself.

I'm concerned still, but that doesn't make it fair.

Spoiler free, another reason I support a boycott:

Literally every developer does this "crunch" bullshit and they all need to be shamed for it, but at the same time those devs involved in creating the game *do* care and *do* want people to play and enjoy it. Also I'm not gonna lie I didn't even watch that video after the first five seconds, I'm just basing this off of the text description.

Thanks Ape Pussy!


You know what other industries crunch? Nearly all of them. Iíve worked 55+ hour weeks for two months in previous agency roles where the MO was burning people out because there is always 10 fresh-faced college kids wanting your spot and will do it for a pathetic salary.

My point is this, you can be mad at video game studios crunching but the real issue is worker exploitation across the working world.

So I noticed that Iíve somehow got an extra copy of XCOM: Apocalypse on Steam. Do any of you want it as a freebie? Keep in mind itís from 1997, thereís no tutorial, and the difficulty is self-adjusting based on your progress vs the aliens (and also built by a sadist). Youíd need a guide, of which there are plenty around.

PM me if youíre interested, Iíll see if I canít gift it to you somehow.

Which is literally addressed in the video.

That's a failure of management; in capitalism, the only tools the consumer has to stop the problem is boycott -- and when one publisher is "worse than most" by the accounts of most other people in the industry, it's a little easier to avoid the biggest scumbags.

I mean if you want to play Last of Us 2 that's fine; i don't think you're terrible for buying it or anything. I just think it's a little weird to be like "ALL WORKERS MATTER" in response to being told they're a scummier company than most, and they're acting shadier than normal, which doesn't bode well for season 8 Last of Us 2.

I'm still really digging NMS. I spent the last three days or so setting up two different money farms, which consisted of spending a day exploring the galaxy for ~the perfect worlds~ and then a day or so dicking around building them up. So in theory twice a day I should have a shitload of products ready to sell for cash, and now I can begin my quest to be a pretty princess with fancy expensive S-class ships.

Got my monitors yesterday. They are majestic.

And then I realized my video card peaks at 1920*1080, so bought a new video card this morning. Good to have an excuse for that one. My current one is probably 6 years old.
