I'll be my least homosexual self.
I tried that for the first 13 years of my lifeódidn't find my attempt to be very successful.

That's like the moment puberty kicks in though! But better to just figure it out then than fighting through adolescence and adult hood to "be straight."

And a webcomic, Dumbing of Age, is written by David Willis (an Indiana native) who was raised in that sort of socially conservative environment and snapped out of it fiercely as an adult. The comic itself takes place mainly at University of Indiana, is LGBT friendly, yet does go to darker places so that can be something of an interesting perspective!

It's worth remembering that we had an IRC channel that was busy in the past but ultimately died out, leaving me to go in occasionally for old time's sake to keep it registered. Plus some things just work better for posting on a board anyway, and that can be better controller perhaps by keeping it invite only.

The mods harbored a pedophile. They were nuking threads about it and banning people who brought it up. You may have enjoyed your time there (and that's totally ok) but I have trouble sympathizing for anyone related to the site.

It seemed to me that this caught staff by surprise and he was immediately banned for good. It was probably more that they didn't want him talked about and that makes sense though there probably should have been a pinned story acknowledging what happened.

I used to use discord all the time for MMOs. I actually prefer it to Vent, or Teamspeak because of how brain dead easy it is to setup and use.
Oh cool, now I remember where I added you from on other services.

Check this out. It's a messaging/chat service that's free of use that's gaming focused. Kind of like a newer version of IRC, and is on my mind owing to the NeoGAF collapse where most of the members who care enough are using that to communicate instead.

Oh man, it's just like when you get Big Brothers to fight in Bioshock, isn't it? You'd think it'd be something awesome but no, it's just two big guys in suits smacking each other for what seems like hours?

... Oh, hey, do we have a Discord?

Glad it sounds like you can get it fixed up at least. That sucked. :(

I quit going after they more or less harbored a pedophile.  I'll be happy to watch it burn.

It was still a hangout for thousands.
This happened quickly enough that many just lost touch with each other.

Also, there was a long-running mental health assistance thread which probably saved some lives over the years.

I get the 'forum war' and denouncing the big name behind it, but it's not like it was 100% evil.

This. It also usually stomped down on bigotry and little tolerance for this nazi bullshit that's becoming too prevalent, but Evilore was a problem and that's become increasingly obvious, especially after a ban wave in the face of questioning moderation... nevermind this unwanted advance.

NeoGAF might die in a single day as allegations of sexual harassment come out about the owner EviLore.

He'd been doling out some shitty bans lately anyway.

The digital version came out in December, but I think the retail versions, with all the bonus goodies, comes out later this month.

Worth remembering that if you didn't preorder you'll need to hunt down a second hand copy on eBay or wherever. It's how GaijinWorks has been operating thus far, hopefully they can eventually tackle something more suited for wider distribution (kind of expect a premium preorder via them though!)

I don't think it's Konami.  I think Sony published it.

Sony technically publishes every PS1 Classic, but the original publisher or someone acting in their stead has to handle getting it out there, at least rights management and whatnot.

It's actually sort of odd, SCEA is listed as publisher but that isn't the case in Japan and may not be in Europe. No idea if that complicates things or simplifies them.

Everyone else is just "Fuck yeah digital! Fuck your opinion!"

They're being more "man I really like digital myself!" rather than fuck your opinion, you're doing more of THAT if anything.

And if I was going to be angry about this with anyone it'd be Apple rather than Valve, Valve made a compromise between increasingly bullshit DRM and something resembling proper ownership, while Apple outright launched and made in vogue a type of platform where physical isn't even practical to implement, but really it seems like this was an inevitable trajectory as SOMEONE was going to push it. And both have their pros and cons, in that physical can leave you free from the nonsense of updates modifying a product in an undesirable way or being outright taken away from you short of physical seizure, but by the same token that means keeping it is YOUR responsibility and not just a matter of remembering a user name/password or having to contact the company if you do lose them for whatever reason, and there's a lot of investment needed to get a game out physically that may not be justified given the game's actual appeal or budget.

Taking the option away entirely across a platform where it shouldn't have to happen like the Xbox One originally would have IS frustrating, but proving the option is not the same as the platform holder deciding that for all games, period, and certainly it'd be selfish on your part to say a game shouldn't have even come out if it can't come out the specific way YOU want it to come out.

If there isn't a PS4 port in Japan, there's not going to be one here.

Relegating the series to digital only isn't going to make the series any bigger.

It seems some games have gotten PS4 versions or will get PS4 versions specifically for international release, the new Godzilla game for instance was only announced for Japan on PS3, then with the localization announcement had a PS4 announced too, not even sure that's coming out in Japan along with the PS3 version.

Not that such a thing is particularly likely though, and part of the going digital angle may also be they've given up hope on expanding the series so may as well serve the existing base as cheaply as they can at least. Retailers may not even WANT to stock newer entries given that they got deep discounts, Dead Souls I got only because I saw it for about $10 (probably less!) at Big Lots.

Digital only.


They may as well not have fucking bothered.

Still pulling this crap? There's retail realities they have to take into account, nevermind this means a translation exists if they ever want to port it elsewhere and actually put it out physically. Probably WOULD be a good idea to have a physical PS4 version actually...
