Intel CEO to turn "tragedy into action" after protest-quitting Trump’s US jobs teamIntel CEO to turn "tragedy into action" after protest-quitting Trump’s US jobs team

I'm completely for equality in terms of employability, but surely there's a line where you're trying to force the change too fast for its own good. At this point Intel will be rejecting many white male applications who hold all the same qualifications as the female Hispanic they accept into the company.

I should note it's only a fear/assumption that this is what's happening, I have no evidence and am happy to recount this should I be found/proven wrong, it's just there's a clear line between 'equality' and a good public image. Both with time should meet, but dropping 2 years off a 3 year plan? Suggests to me they're forcing things to make a point.

Intel laid off 12,000 workers last year while hiring even more foreigners (non Americans) over the past few years. What they're doing is pretty horrific and unamerican, imo.

The people have spoken - Divinity: Original Sin is better than Baldur's GateThe people have spoken - Divinity: Original Sin is better than Baldur's Gate

I bounced off D:OS because the story was too light/campy for my taste, I prefer something with more gravitas if not grimdark. It's a shame because I really wanted to get into the co-op with my wife, but by the time I got out of the first town I was losing interest. The combat seemed REALLY good, though - better than PoE or Baldur's Gate (IMO).

Why call out "Christians and Muslims" and not Jews and Buddhists? Because lumping Christians with Islamic violence is absurd, it's something idiotic leftists love doing.

It's because both groups are the most popular of pulling this kind of bullshit then jews and buddhists people. Considering how both religions are wide spread in many nations and countries around the world, then buddism, hindu, jainist, and other beliefs out there, Christianity and Islams are the biggest elephant of the room of religions.


Which is why most things we hear some god awful shit is either both religions shouting out their intolerance for other beliefs instead of being respectful and letting it happen, and many turn to zealotry and fundamentalist behavior has been rampant on both Christianity and Islam.


The History of both religion just show just how ugly their believes are, and how hypocritical they could be, and this game although not teaching a political message, but like I said, it's showing us a religious message, and that's showing the ugly side of faith, beliefs, and the corruption of humanity. The ones we are all familar with thanks to modern and past actions of many groups... The Crusades, The Witch Trails, Salem Witch Trails, ISIS terrorist group, the KKK, and so many are plain examples to this day.


Now I guess you might get the big picture of why atheism is growing, we are sick and tired of religious zealotry and fundamentalist behavior from people too highly addicted to religion like a drug.

Grimoire dev thinks his own game is the “greatest roleplaying game of them all”Grimoire dev thinks his own game is the “greatest roleplaying game of them all”
Jenks Avatar
It's pretty rare these days that a game comes along that looks genuinely challenging to me. I might have to pick this up.

I'm not sure why people are complaining about the price, is 40 dollars expensive? People pay 60 all the time for overpolished set piece games that last 6 hours all the time.Reply
Zoopy Avatar

Agreed. I'd much rather pay $40 for this than $60 + DLC cost for the next (mostly banal) Bethesda open world game.


I also think too many people don't understand the aim of the game either. Anyone who ISN'T willing to pay $40 for this game, isn't the target audience anyway. It's not a simple game and it's not an easy game. It's targeting an incredibly niche section of gamers. The average Joe is not going to have the patience to play it.

Peter Molyneux is bringing mobile game The Trail to PCPeter Molyneux is bringing mobile game The Trail to PC

Fable 1 was good, but Fable 2 and 3 was lackluster, he made godus with that 21 can company after he left, but that didn't do so great, people say it's like a facebook game and facebook games are not that great, unless you like farmville or other related games.


however black and white 1 and 2 was alright but i had a hard time adapting to it, due to bugs and old features that I had a hard time getting into, like no resources regeneration for example, and how storywise can be bugged out.


however with his progress that he made is not really successful at all, and his name has always been tarnished with each project he left abandoned, like godus for example... people want that game to be succesful but it never did, it's now just as worst like towns...


i'm sorry if this may offend you but this is what all I know from this man, maybe in an alternative world he could be very successful and well beloved as well as we loved games made in unreal engine, however sadly that's not that case in this reality.

Again, you used the phrase "what history has taught us," and then the furthest you go back to is Black and White. Why not talk about Syndicate, Populus, Theme Park, and Dungeon Keeper? What did history teach us when we actually consider all of history and not just the part that fits your argument?

He's responsible for some of the greatest PC games of all time, maybe if you're in your 20's or younger you wouldn't know that. Godus and Fable 3 sucked but history has absolutely not taught us that "he's one of the worse of the worst game devs." That's asinine.
