Given that it’s representing an official government body, wouldn’t this violate the 1st amendment?

You can definitely open the safes by listening for the clicks. After my fourth or fifth one I didn’t even look for the clues, I just listened closely and was able to open them no problem.

It depends on the company. That’s true for studios under Ubisoft and a lot of Japanese developers, but for games made by Bethesda’s studios or a lot of EA’s studios have a single core studio that does most of the work per title, with additional help where needed. Besides, it doesn’t really matter what project the Read more

The 2013 Tomb Raider reboot famously didn’t break even until the end of the year after launch despite selling something like 3.5 million in March when it released. It eventually did become quite successful after the PS4/XB1 port, but that’s just one very public example off the top of my head.

AAA ps1 games didn’t take 300+ skilled workers to make either. The cost of development has gone way up as the technical skill needed to make them and the amount of work they take to make have gone up. It’s not just about inflation.

This is ignoring how massively disproportionate the profits of the ultra-successful games like Minecraft and Fortnite are to the average AAA (and indie) which sometimes barely break even despite selling millions of copies.

A modestly sized AAA studio of about three hundred can easily spend $20-$25 million per year in salary costs. When you consider that most games take at a minimum 2 years to make, often 3 or 4,the cost to employ those workers (who are already underpaid relative to other industries that hire similar skillsets) suddenly Read more

This. I just took off the bottom panel and removed the power supply, then took some cotton swabs and compressed air to the fan and heatsink, and my PS4 is so quiet that I thought I broke the fan for a minute. I’ve had it since launch and that was the first cleaning I gave it, too.

You absolutely don’t need to replace the thermal paste to get your PS4 quiet. Just spend 15 minutes thoroughly and properly cleaning the dust out. It worked wonders for mine to the point where I can’t hear the console if I have my headset on at all.

I recommend you actually play the game. You clearly have no idea what it’s like.

user reviews are worthless on metacritic, literally everyone knows this. And maybe, just maybe, the 95 critic score actually does reflect near-universal critical acclaim among the people who finished the game? I don’t think the scoring system is broken in that sense - the aggregate of fuzzy estimations of someone’s Read more

The system looks good imo, but the controller has awkward proportions visually (willing to bet it’s ergonomics over appearance of course.)

I’m still shocked Unsane was ever in the game to begin with. Sad they’re not coming back, I wonder if they even bothered trying to license the track again.

They have hardware support for decompression built in. 5.5 GB/s throughput turns into somewhere between 8-9 GB/s. And m.2 SSDs are gonna keep dropping in price. You probably won’t need one until 2022 unless you’re one of the very few people that want their whole library installed at all times. The vast majority of Read more

The album is fantastic, best thing he’s put out in a decade easy

People pay more attention to the bad things happening to them than the good things when it comes to luck. If good happens, they believe their skill led them to deserve it, and when bad it wasn’t their fault. Confirmation bias kicks in to play once we start viewing it as unfair or intentional that something bad starts Read more

Everything about The Woodlands feels like a stuck up corporate campus turned into a town. The people who move there all seem like people who think they’re living a more luxurious life than they are and can’t stand the unwashed masses that might not fit in. I hate how these spots are popping up in every major city now Read more

Ruiner is my first thought. It takes the combat of Hotline Miami and fleshes it out. It might not be as elegant, but it’s a much more deep with time slowing mechanics, a wide variety of weapons and an effective dash mechanic keeping the pace extremely fast. The narrative is very cool, lots of cyberpunk grittiness with Read more
