It’s not as nice as they make it sound for everyone being laid off. I’m saying this as someone who has a good friend in one of the affected companies.
What Telltale did is literally illegal. So Activision does not get credit for firing people in a way that complies with the law.
Blizzard might be trying to do this in a considerate way, but they are only one section of the company that is facing layoffs.
This has been glossed over because the real story is untenable growth and bloodsucking shareholders costing people their jobs but this is a pretty decent severance package they’re giving them. Yeah the situation blows but at least they’re trying to lessen the sting.
Ohh look, another guy who has zero leadership knowledge commenting about leadership.
Came here for this. Wasn’t disappointed.
I couldn’t help comparing SC2 campaigns to SC+BW - not a comparison that SC2 weathers well. I still haven’t gotten around to the protoss expansion because the first two campaigns were such generic, XXXtr3m3!!! turds. They should have sent a poet - or at least diverted more than .03% of the budget for writers.
ONLY IF YOU INCLUDE SEAFARERS AND CITIES AND KNIGHTS then that’ll be super kino ^-^
I wouldn’t buy too much into this article on that. The info from the Bioware Devs is that the MSQ will take you to just around max level. In addition to the post game story lines for the three factions as you gain reputation. What we don’t know is how story driven future content is going to be or if it will devolve…
It’s basically identical to Universal Profile, save for one major difference: Chat does not support end-to-end encryption
lol. It is. The demo only let you see a sliver of a side-story. They said somewhere they didn’t want to reveal much of the story in the demo.
Someone made a neat little chart. Here you go:
I don’t think there is much hope. At least it looks good and runs well at 1440p ultra/high on my 970.
First of all Telegram has a working iPad app and it is not owned by Facebook. It has many great features iMessage does not have, like replies, editing messages, pinned messages and bots (I wish WhatsApp would allow those). It has native implementations on most platforms, focuses a lot on usability (automatic night…
I second Telegram. It has an unbelievably active development community, its stickers and gif support is out of this world good (artists can create and upload their own stickers—part of the reason every furry on Earth uses telegram), and its group chat features, like someone else mentioned, are super strong. Plus, it’s…
I’ve heard about telegram but the one messaging app that has worked for me for almost 10 years has been Google Voice. I ported my number to Google Voice in 2010 so regardless of what carrier I’m with or what phone I have (Android or Apple) I just load my Google Voice app and I’m good. I can search for messages from…
Actually, Telegram supports playing back voice messages at two times speed; something not offered by WhatsApp. It also supports multiple devices; something not supported by WhatsApp. It has standalone apps for Windows; something not supported by WhatsApp. It supports autoplay of next voice message; something not…
Also “Like many of the other apps listed here, Telegram provides end-to-end encryption for all communication” is just untrue. The author isn’t even trying. E2E is not the default and not available for groups.
Ok, that’s the weird part, because at least in Europe SMS is outdated, almost deprecated: no one uses it, just government bodies to notify you about taxes, appointments, etc. But people? No one, really. So no support for SMS is not a thing here.
Friends: “Alright! Thanks for having us over for the game! We’re staying all night!”
Me: “Great! I made this awesome cauliflower dip!”
