I'd really like to know what the criteria for the confidence metric is. What if I enjoy a certain indie game but others don't? Now I won't get cards for it because of them? That's bullshit.Reply

I'm guessing revealing that information would help to enable bad actors to game the system again. Legitimacy of the game and not negative reviews would be the measurement so nothing to get angry about yet.

Dumb stats are dumb. I wasn't asked these questions. My answers weren't recorded. So how are these stats supposed to be accurate or helpful to anyone?Reply

Sampling is literally what all statistics work runs on.

Prey is a great game. I'm enjoying every minute of it. A real System Shock experience, though not quite as much horror/taunting.

That's great that enjoy a game that held a part of making an indie devs life more difficult.

They had to do it? How do you justify that? The games weren't similar and no one was going to confuse "prey" and "prey for the gods" that's pretty pathetic seeing someone else try to give a bullshit reason for their actions. Fact is they wanted to show how strong they were and succeeded. It was a dick move.

I'm not saying it was a good thing. Just that it was what was needed by the law:


"Failure to "police" a mark by stopping infringing uses can result in the loss of protection."


Infringement comes down to the "likelihood of confusion test" So where we, as gamers, might easily tell the difference between games, lawyers probably do not - to them a game is a game no matter the content.

As I said earlier, what annoys me is the "woe, woe, we had to do it" atitude whilst doing nothing to affect change of that law.

You should have opted not to do a review of this game. You should have avoided it like the plaque to send a message to Bethesda. We don't respect game companies that step on the little guys. We're supposed to be a game community that sticks together and helps each other for the benefit of the gaming industry. Not use our power to make the little guys make srbitrary changes to their name. I'm disappointed in you today. You could have used this to send a message to Bethesda and instead you chose their side and support them in hurting indie devs.

Never played this. I always thought it looked too much like Terraria and I put a lot of hours into that game collecting every item and killing every boss. Didn't want to play a carbon copy of that.
