Wait, so they basically said “We take this seriously and will do things about it. But what those things might be are under NDA”? I find that... kinda scary. Both because of the track records of so many other studios and publishers, and the fact it cuts out everyone who isn’t a partner but is dealing with the same Read more

I’ll never understand these Twitch lemmings who are so willing to do all this shit because their favorite streamer - who couldn’t give less of as shit about them - gets into a spat with other streamers. Read more

It’s extraordinary to hear I know but having glimpsed at the comment histories of some of those here doing the whole “be polite to those you disagree with” and “Rowling isn’t transphobic” there seems to this amazing overlap of that and comments about how The Root hates white people...

“Supporting the devs” is practically a dogwhistle that says “I don’t care about marginalized people, I just want to convince myself it’s okay to support their oppressors.”

Exactly. It’s Apple’s decision to make, same as with Epic. However I would say in this case (streaming apps) it’s a really stupid business decision. Presumably, none of the stream uses Apple servers.

This is 100% nothing more than an attempt by Apple to cover their asses legally. It enables them to say to a judge, “Look! We gave them a path! They just refuse to take it so they won’t have to give us the 30% to which we are contractually entitled.” Read more

Y’all I had this weird-ass dream that I was in the middle of a town or university or towniversity or whatever and... the buildings started to come apart. It was too still to be an earthquake and too slow to be an explosion, but just chunks came sort of floaty-tumbly, just, off. Like everything was just losing Read more
