I live in an area where when it was announced ppl cheered and I was filled with such rage and heartache that these people thought this was okay to do in front of a group of black kids. This year has been such complete shit I'm having a hard time believing anything will ever get better. I'm also mad that medication in… Read more
I’ve spent the worst part of 33 years trying to escape the place my parents were reckless enough to birth me into. How they expected me to ever truly achieve anything, in this place under a system and with a society so broken that it no longer functions much at all, I do not know. They have expected much from me, some… Read more
So I work as a contractor under Activision Blizzard and we had an internal petition of 1,600+ employees and an external petition of over 17,000 people demanding our CEOs resignation…… and he’s still here. So… that’s dumb.
First, I appreciate reading everything you all write. The good and the bad, it all takes effort and it all comes from something you care about, and I just appreciate that. You crazy cast of characters are like a modern day sitcom (though without all the jokes and the forced laugh track) - I check the site every day to… Read more
live your truth. the ed clip floating around has me a little worried but at least they have time to course correct if a second season comes out.
I put out the bat signal to my old Halo gang, some of whom I haven’t played with since the Halo-2-but-on-the-360 era, and last night after a close match someone said “God damn it feels like I’m back in college and I love it”.
They really nailed the classic Halo feel after the criticisms of 4 and 5 straying too far from… Read more
It’s been really awful to see the level of usability and freedom to manipulate the site/content continuously go down as Wikia transformed into Fandom. RIP to pretty much all of the rigorously maintained communities that were originally under its umbrella. It’s even worse to see them gradually buy out and absorb… Read more
I remember when there were so many independent wikis—UESPWiki for Elder Scrolls, Nukapedia for Fallout, Wowpedia for World of Warcraft, Memory Alpha for Star Trek, etc.—that either existed before Wikia or had forked themselves from it. And they shared one thing in common: they absolutely, unequivocally despised Wikia.… Read more
Since I may not get the chance again soon I’d just like to say it really frustrates me how so many groups just up and quit on building their own sites and instead have turned to hosting everything on Fandom’s platform, because it really and truly sucks. Autoplaying videos are my biggest bugbear but the overwhelming… Read more
This was interesting and very thorough. Well written, and good luck with bad faith bullshit that’s sure to come your way.
Shakedown Hawaii had an entire quest chain focusing on this. You’d create an startup, gather seed money from investors, then divert when the tech didn’t deliver on expectations. VR, AR, and Blockchain were among the options available.
I mean, numerically it is the most popular game. It really speaks a sad truth about how the western market is not nearly as important as we’d think.
Um. League of Legends is popular in China. It has professional esports teams for League and Overwatch. Please don’t say things that are simply false.
numbers like these also help one understand why some companies bend over backwards to appeal to the chinese market: we can’t picture how huge it is.
Seriously, I was like
