Hey Alice, now I'm obsessed with lining up tents. The DLC gives me nostalgia for Zoo Tycoon and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. Instead of being a traffic simulator it is becoming an event simulator. I really like it even though the limited functionality of the parks is a bit frustrating, it was a very welcome feature for spreading out green spaces though.
I definitely broke the habit of using grids, and made many camping sites in the hills. Hope you enjoy it, let me know how it goes.
ESRB have always charged for their ratings, a quick google search comes up at $4000 for AAA productions (titles costing more than a quarter million to make) and $800 for anything less than that.
IARC is an automated ratings system from ESRB for developers of digital-games to meet a regulations standard without the expense of ESRB. At the moment you still need ESRB if you want to release physical copies of your game, or if you want to bring a game to the PlayStation; but an IARC rating is enough for Xbox to accept your title onto their digital store, and Steam will happily accept games with no age-ratings, as they only sell digital titles.
Reading more into the GamesIndustry.biz article, it doesn't seem like ESRB have plans to halt this process either. They're not changing how IARC works. In fact they're suggesting the change in form of ESRB to digital media will lead to the new digital ESRB ratings becoming free to developers of console downloadable games. I admit I don't follow the reason for change of the digital rating format or their business direction increasing their expenses, but it seems like a positive change for developers.
Sorry, yes I forgot to add the actual TSVs they use makes the resulting silicon completely incompatible with a proof-of-work consensus model.
A definite mining no-show ;)
...is, I think, going to be the response from a lot of people.
But it's not AMD's fault that graphics card pricing is so high, or that stock is limited. They are doing everything they can to boost volume in the channel, but memory shortages and high pricing is having a knock on effect, and that's before we even mention the dreaded cryptocurrency.
There is, however, only so much they can do :(
Thank you for this comment
