Cesaro got time to cut a promo on the WWE App: http://www.wwe.com/videos/cesaro-has-championship-plans-wwe-app-exclusive-oct-20-2014-26745494

He cut a good promo, and honestly, looked like he was speaking his mind for awhile there. It is fucking ridiculous that at best, there is going to be a pre-show IC title match.

Agreeance. How do you NOT have an IC belt defense match on the PPV? And as solid and surprising as their match was on RAW, to not carry that momentum into the PPV seems ludicrous. It makes me wonder why WWE even has belts at all. Just have they wrestle for a bucket of KFC at the next PPV.

How's a 2 out of 3 falls match grab you? Cause that's what we're getting, Ziggler vs Cesaro at HIAC. Get hype.

I'm bummed upgrading the capacity of the guns doesn't give free ammo. :(

We'll never hear about this again

It's all there in the title of the game, I mean look at the outrage of it all, it's already achieved it's goal. Since we are drawing lines let me pose a short what if scenario :

Fps/jump scare/story driven/ Silent Hill style.

A man is being chased at the onset of the game and you see him killing demons / monsters, throughout the game you learn about his motivations, and perspectives. After fighting and fighting the game ends.You are extracted from his consciousness and see from a third persons perspective what he has really done , he has killed 7 people in reality,........ make it horrific. You now know what he/you have done over this experience He is insane, in a asylum and the memory keeps repeating itself over and over again in his mind, and you were a witness to the depths of his madness.

Now where is the line? I happen to believe the above is a great idea for having pulled it out of nowhere, but it would piss a lot of people off to know they never had a choice and we forced them to feel something they were not prepared for. My only thought on Hatred is that, while the game sickens me, could it be possible that it may save some real lives by letting content like this exist for people who really need it?

If that's even a possibility, i think its worth it. Then again I could just be wasting everyone's time.

The line is the context. That is perfectly acceptable. No Russian doesn't bother me because you're playing as a CIA agent working for the greater good of taking down this terrorist organization. The level of violence in Hatred is fine and doesn't bother me. The context of playing as a mass shooter with a manifesto killing civilians with no purpose other than to murder as many innocent people as possible? Not cool.

@president_barackbar: Serious question: If I gave you 10 bucks a month on patreon, what incentive would I have to rate your game favorably or give it coverage? The only one I can see is you start making enough money that you don't have to subsist through donations. Since no one is forcing me to support you, supporting you in order to eventually not support you isnt a good motivation

Well, if you are giving someone funding through Patreon you are essentially supporting their career and ability to make games, in a much more general way than Kickstarter. Giving someone Patreon funds is similar to an investment except you make no money. I don't like games media supporting indie dev Patreons without disclosure because there is a potential for someone to give a developer they like more access and favorable coverage because they are invested in seeing them succeed. Of course, games media already uses their influence to promote games they want to see do well, but the whole thing just gets weird to me when you start introducing money into the equation.

But you're not going to fund someone unless you're already into what they do. You don't gain anything back from supporting someone in that way.

It's fine, look, you guys have your opinions, I have mine, whether you consider that a flimsy, poor evidence for collusion or not. If you really think there's NOTHING weird at all going on in the games media, well then...never mind. I'm not going to make this thread about GamerGate and I also won't post more in regards to this. I'm just saying there's more out there.

You said you'd admit if you were wrong. You were. Now you're saying we should respect you being wrong?

Dude no

@wilshere: Can you provide any evidence from the leaked mailing list of people deciding as a group not to cover x or to cover z?

@Giantstalker I am sure being shot at does not help either!

I managed to replace my own job in the last office I worked in. When I started about 90% of my job was to basically copy and paste numbers from one spreadsheet to another and do calculations. I got bored of this after a week so I wrote some excel macros at home and ended up automating the entire process. I was still on my probationary period so they ditched me but kept the new system.

The only thing worse than getting replaced by a robot is building the robot yourself.

Dude that's why you keep that to yourself and mess around on reddit all day instead of working.

My job suck is constantly shifting procedure. I've been there over a year and I know my job frontwards and backwards but that doesn't matter when one day we randomly start doing X differently until we start doing it differently again.

Couldn't be less worried if I actively tried.
