Hypocrisy is the name of the game in business and politics, it's why they get on so well together. Interesting stuff - though really, 3k? That's not a drop in the bucket for the kind of money these politicians get from Superpacs.Reply
Jacob Ridley Avatar

It's not so much a question of how much, but why. Contributions range from sub-$1,000 to $10,000 individually - occasionally more. In the grand scheme of things, it's not a huge sum of money per candidate each year, but in total these donations amounted to roughly $1 million spent by IPAC in 2016.


The real risk for Intel is how its contributions, and the intention behind its contributions, are perceived.

I'm reminded of how mad ESPN fans were when they televised the championship last year. Well money talks and bullshit walks, and that's the kind of viewer numbers nobody can turn their nose up at. I never really thought they would be able to force their silly e-sports meme back in the day, but here we are.

`The first year will see the site set aside $100,000 to pay out to their top mods each month.` OH BOY, THIS SYSTEM WON'T RESULT IN ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION AND ANGRY HURT FEELINGS NO SIR. Seriously, the modding community is full of diva's and lunatics as it is. Add money and you have a mcclusterfuck royale with cheese waiting to happen.

Paradox are trying to figure out how to sell DLC “without upsetting everyone”Paradox are trying to figure out how to sell DLC “without upsetting everyone”
TsunamiWombat Avatar
Having seen how paradox does their DLC, let me give some suggestions. 1. Don't have millions of DLC's adding up to hundreds of goddamn dollars. 2. Don't sell DLC's that are almost entirely cosmetic but cost $20 dollars for some goddamn skins of plant aliens.Reply

I don't have a problem with strictly cosmetic DLC. My issue is how the content is communicated to the market. Make the content absolutely clear from the initial store page rather than forcing player to consult a community guide to figure out which DLCs are the best gameplay value (especially with CK2...)


Bundles aren't a bad idea either, they would be a good way of combining the cosmetic and gameplay additions for patient gamers. People who want the newest content 'right now' can keep buying individual DLC as it becomes ready for release rather than forcing the entire market to wait for more substantial expansion-style releases.

This shit is industry norm, and EA was dumb and thought they could get MW bucks, when even MW doesn't get MW bucks these days. Chasing a pipe dream, like everyone chases that WoW pipedream.

Rage 2: release date, trailer, gameplay, graphics, story - everything we knowRage 2: release date, trailer, gameplay, graphics, story - everything we know
TsunamiWombat Avatar

Because Mad Max made a big splash at the box office so post apocalyptic action is an actionable property right now. Plus, Borderlands is always fairly successful, so they probably want a shot at that money.


Rage was incredibly mediocre, if anything.

Why? It's essentially an op-ed, which has been a part of journalism since its very inception. If you take issue with the sentence itself, then I'm not sure what to tell you.

No real story to speak of, just "random" events... by which I mean the same 5 events every game.

What? None of that. This is a straight up action game, not your Skyrim LoveLab mod.

Depends how much time you want to stick into it. I'm level 70 and still haven't finished it from doing everything/hunting for materials, but i'm getting there. 20-50 hours at least.
