  1. My wife is still playing this but I'm tempted to get in there to make a build copying something I've just seen in Minecraft.
  2. I've been thinking about this. I love a free game as much as the next person. And I always thought that various industry bodies had it wrong about things like covermounts (which were a godsend during the dying days of the 8 bits where it as impossible to get new or old titles anywhere outside the UK otherwise.) The Epic giveaways though are too generous, to the point where it's like the deal that killed the Atari ST games market in the UK. And later Fantastic for the end user. But imagine trying to actually sell a game to someone who's been loaded up with enough free games to last a year in one hit!
  3. He also wrote the amazing 17776. https://www.sbnation.com/a/17776-football
  4. Not until I get to play. My wife has requested I wait until we've both got some free time, I'm incredibly jealous of you all right now. Played up to the pub. Question mark removed. We've spent the last couple of hours laughing at that awful goose!
  5. Back in 2014 Jon Bois ran an experiment using NBAY2K about running the entire sport of basketball into the ground with year after year of bad drafts. Forever. https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/6/3/5772796/nba-y2k-series-finale-the-death-of-basketball Now Jon Bois alongside Kofie Yeboah run the same All is Lost scenario on a modern NBA2K game. There's something here even for non sportsball fans like myself.
  6. I don't think that's entirely fair. There's been a few people here including myself who''ve stated they'd like to see better alternatives. As for negging, some posters will neg. Turn rep off or lobby for the rep system to be removed. As it is you're already on my "no neg" list along with others who've stated their wish to opt out of being negged.
  7. And then there's the Streisand effect where taking someone to court for slander or defamation can just increase the damage. On the other side if someone who's been abused or mistreated wants to sue their abuser in court you're looking at 18 months, approx $100K plus and career damage.
  8. This isn't well thought out, innocent people kill themselves all the time for all sorts of reasons. I know this isn't your intention but hand waving it away as "well that just proves something was up and / or true" is simplistic. Furthermore it's an outcome that's generally not one wanted by survivors who would prefer serial abusers engage in a number of actions including acknowledging the damage they've caused and changing so as not to create more hurt. Generally survivors would prefer not to have to deal with the guilt of feeling like they've been responsible for someone killing themselves.
  9. (Below, the dress that inspired the look of Deus Ex:Human Revolution?)
  10. This trailer doesn't do the film justice. Neither did the original cut down release. But now.... https://www.criterion.com/films/28767-until-the-end-of-the-world It's a bit of a lost classic even if William Hurt is a little wooden in it at times. And the soundtrack is stunning.
  11. And I guess this is where metoo, Royal Comissions or calling out come into play. Because one or two people coming forward will generally lead to more people coming forward and at least prevent future abuse. It also allows the possibility of recognising what survivors have been through and getting them resources and help. I don't know how you resolve the issue of potential bad actors but there are many men who if they hadn't of been called out would have continued to abuse the people around them were it not for calling this behaviour out publicly.
  12. Which kind of means that survivors of abuse are back in the "deal with it / don't talk about it" place. Because unless you report it within 24 hours and there's still physical evidence than there's nothing.
  13. And yet women (and some men) can end up leaving their chosen fields or end their lives when abusive men are left to continue abusing. A small number of abusive men can over time create a massive negative impact for society as a whole. How do we balance that out?
  14. And this is the big issue, call out culture has stopped in it's tracks abusers and institutions who have essentially abused for decades but have gotten away with it because each of the dozens of cases were treated and isolated as individual instances. Certain movie directors. A certain finance guru and friend to powerful people. The Roman Catholic church. Previously individual survivors isolated from each other either had to deal with the issues on their own or be called mentally ill or a liar.
