    This is probably the driving motivation behind a lot of people's preference for GoG: they've staked out a position of not giving a shit what the industry wants when it comes to DRM/online...

    This is basically academic, though. The majority of games released on Steam are released there specifically for Steamworks DRM, so the fact that it's not literally mandatory is neither here nor there.

    Most game characters basically are professional runners, though. I'd call that attention to detail.

    Yup. It's wringing every possible drop of profit out of any and all human activity, damn the consequences. And, of course, the bulk of that profit doesn't go to the people actually making things.

    "Taxi Driver" would fit the current AAA gaming aesthetic perfectly.

    I'd love to know what algorithm led them to target this forum. Those numbers are all in India! "Earn$$$ wokring from google" at least I can comprehend.

    Seems safe to assume it was a 3rd Wave Cultural Marxist campaign of consumer slander and other unethics. Surely Breitbart will come up with an investigation soon enough.

    But I'm pretty sure they're within their rights to instead offer nothing and have mod-makers prosecuted under some variety of anti-hacking law, so it's really pure charity on the part of the noble...

    Very true! Debit cards are the devil's own invention.

    The risk of using a credit card anywhere is, at most, significant inconvenience. Accounts are insured against unauthorized use, so in the worst case scenario you have to cancel your card and spend...

    Oh, I'm mostly just raging at contemporary capitalism. I'm sure that the games industry is precarious enough right now that they do need every possible drop of profit to survive, including from...

    Failing that, "The Happiness of the Katakuris" (and -- this is important -- absolutely no other films) by Takashi Miike. It's a lighthearted black comedy with...

    They kinda do. Sales are less frequent and less extreme on GoG than on Steam and you typically don't get free GoG keys included in purchases of other formats.

    It's only necessary to the extent that publishers maximizing profits is necessary. In practice, I'm not bothered by regional pricing (I still buy games like they all cost $60, so what's a few bucks...

    I prefer trying to imagine a world where all of this makes perfect sense. That seems to be more in the spirit of fantastical world-building and really, what do I lose if this world has an economic...

    Nah, it was the early lo-fi games. I think that's just leasing my soul to a djinni or something.

    I watched MK...8? at EVO, and high-level play was just a tire fire. I feel like a game needs to demand skill to earn XXXTREEM gore like that -- remember as a kid when only that one friend knew even a...

    Coming into Majora's Mask with that impression of Ocarina might make for the best experience. It's really so, so much better, weirder, and more interesting.

    I notice that Majora's Mask isn't in that list, so I'm afraid your opinion will have to be disregarded.
