EGS' monopolistic practices and Tim Sweeney's hypocrisy in paying for exclusives

Tim Sweeney on buying exclusives: Link       The creative director of Phoenix Point and CEO of Snapshot Games on their exclusivity deal with EGS: Link   "Keep in mind that we knew there would be backlash. We knew there would be refunds. If we had to refund 100% of currently pre-orders, we'd still be in the black. We didn't make the decision lightly"   "Obviously I can't go into details about the deal - but it's for a minimum guarantee -

Facebook's Funding of and Integration With State Propaganda and Disinformation Institutions

Since May 2018, the management of Facebook's in-practice allowed and posted content policy has been officially guided by Atlantic Council [2], which is basically the propaganda and disinformation arm of NATO, funded by, among others, the US government and weapons manufacturers, and which is notorious for advocating for war against NATO challengers, calling for acts of terrorism to be committed against NATO challengers like Russia, and for operating social media manipulation projects that falsely

Opening the Scrolls: Unpacking the Shady and Scandal-Plagued History of Bethesda / ZeniMax

For a long time, there has existed a strange anomaly in the gaming community: The unbalanced and blind perception of Bethesda / ZeniMax as being a 'good-person' developer and publisher. This perception has been held by many of the companies' fans despite all the while the company keeps doing things that contradict that perception. In many ways, Bethesda / ZeniMax have been games industry leaders in scummy, disrespectful, and exploitative lawsuit-happy practices, going back for more than a decade

You legally own the software that you purchase, and any claims otherwise are urban myth or corporate propaganda

Updated May 2019     Some of the bottom part of this post is a paste of a message I sent to Steam support following the seemingly-bullying actions of a Steam forum moderator who has been falsely telling people that Steam rents / leases games through their service and doesn't sell them, and who was intolerant of anybody telling them they're wrong. That moderator liked to do things like delete posts and lock any threads where people say show otherwise.   To be clear, that

Commentary on the Legality of Microsoft's Data-Harvesting in Windows 10

This is a perhaps a more eloquent and elaborated presentation of what I was wanting to speak in the thread 7-times Microsoft MVP finds Windows 10 Enterprise collects too much data at minimum, calls for legal action.   The relevant links from that thread are these:   Windows, Spying, and a Twitter Rant Screenshots showing high levels of contact with Microsoft servers after employing all efforts to stop data-transmission Additional screenshots of further Microsoft ser

My reaction to anti 3rd-party software key-reseller propaganda

While there are legitimately some things to take into consideration regarding purchasing games from 3rd-party key resellers, I think that there also is some false and exaggerated propaganda being pushed about them by some select neurotic develops who are upset that people aren't paying full dollar for their games.   Firstly, the G2A marketplace does not represent 3rd-party key-resellers - it represents a forum for individuals to sell their keys. Arguments made for or against G2A market

Download Links for Great Free Games

Battlefield 2 / Battlefield 2142   When Gamespy shut down their servers in 2014, people weren't ready to stop playing many of the games that depended on them. So, in the case of Battlefield 2, two different groups of people each decided to set up their own master servers for the game, and provided a free download of the full game + expansions for anyone who wants it. This has been done with the blessing of EA.   Each of these downloads relies on a different master server list

Microsoft is now the world's #1 culprit and promoter of software piracy

This was originally a post I made in the Tech News forum, and concerns the data-collection of Windows 10. Nobody has agreed to grant Microsoft rights to their personal data by purchasing or installing Windows - and all data that is personally generated by a person's hardware, their owned software-licenses, their time, and their electricity costs, is their personally-owned data, and represents work that a person's property created, through their owner's personal expense, and time. Further
