    [–] GameSpot is trying out a new format of review: Longform video interviewing the reviewer. The first game is Anthem. Daveed84 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 hours ago) in Games

    I was gonna say... Game Informer has been doing videos like this for a while now, and I think they do a really good job with it. I also like their "Rapid fire interviews" where they ask game developers quick questions about their upcoming games. They're usually pretty information dense and informative while also being pretty funny most of the time. Here's the one they did with Cory Barlog about God of War: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFbeaM0hp_c

    I've legitimately never gotten past that stage. Not once, ever.

    [–] EA: YouTube creator's Anthem video removed for disclosure failure, not content Daveed84 6 points ago in Games

    Getting paid for a review doesn't mean that the reviewer is lying about any of it or embellishing things. I've seen YouTubers mention this and that they wouldn't have made their sponsored videos if they didn't truly enjoy the product. Smaller content creators in particular often have devoted followers that they depend on and most of the time they genuinely don't want to mislead anyone into buying something that they know is a subpar product. I think as long as they disclose it, it's fine, and it's up to the viewer to decide whether they believe them or not.

    [–] Rumor: Two next-gen Xbox models to be announced at E3 2019 Daveed84 0 points ago in Games

    That's the idea, yes, but as of right now it's just a rumor.

    [–] Rumor: Two next-gen Xbox models to be announced at E3 2019 Daveed84 1 points ago in Games

    Absolutely, and I think Microsoft is OK with that. They'd rather have some of your money than none of it at all. I think it's a brilliant move on their part. Now they just need to keep adding value to it by producing more quality first party titles

    [–] Rumor: Two next-gen Xbox models to be announced at E3 2019 Daveed84 0 points ago in Games

    Well, my current assumption is that Microsoft would be bringing its stable of Game Pass games to the Switch, i.e. titles that may not exist on the Switch already. If that turns out to be true, that would largely be a totally new revenue stream for Nintendo. They'd be gaining access to lots of games that they weren't offering previously. To your point about games that they already offer, I could see them working out a deal where those games wouldn't be available on Switch with Game Pass, or perhaps the math would work out in their favor anyway (continued revenue instead of a one-time purchase).

    I guess we'll see!

    [–] What was the first movie to traumatize you as a child? Daveed84 2 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in AskReddit

    Gremlins 2 for me, I think I saw that one before the original. Even though it's supposed to be more cartoonish than the original film, the sequel still scared me shitless, well into my teens... The part where one of the characters feeds a Gremlin through a paper shredder definitely traumatized me as a kid

    The rumor is that Microsoft would be bringing the Xbox Game Pass to the Switch.

    [–] How Chucklefish's Wargroove made back its dev costs within just three days Daveed84 11 points ago in Games

    Titles that include the words "How" or "Why" at the beginning make me laugh, because usually they're completely unnecessary additions. It would have been perfectly fine if the title was just "Chucklefish's Wargroove made back its dev costs within just three days"

    [–] Rumor: Two next-gen Xbox models to be announced at E3 2019 Daveed84 8 points ago in Games

    Not too long ago I would have agreed with you, but in recent years Nintendo has been a bit more relaxed with how they treat their properties. They've brought some of their IP to iOS and Android, for example, and last year they produced a commercial promoting Xbox and Switch crossplay in Minecraft (at the time, it was a little surreal seeing an Xbox controller featured in a Nintendo commercial). It's not a sure thing, obviously, I'm just saying it wouldn't surprise me at this point.

    M.2 is just a connector.

    More accurately, it's a form factor. The actual connection to the PC is physically different on SATA and NVME M.2 drives.

    There are rumors that Game Pass will come to the Nintendo Switch soon as well. It wouldn't surprise me if the streaming service is made available on the Switch.

    Internet commenters, particularly the variety on YouTube videos and local newspapers

    [–] Disney pulls all YouTube ads after Matt Watson's "Child Exploitation on Youtube" video Daveed84 11 points ago in videos

    If it doesn't work automatically, then hire a big enough team to do it manually

    Unfortunately this is completely infeasible, given the amount of content uploaded to YouTube on a daily basis.

    Truth is they don't want to hire any people because that would cost them money.

    It would, yes -- possibly so much money that they'd be operating at a much deeper loss than they already are. The only viable solution then is to just shut the whole thing down.

    Just because a kid is in a video, it doesn't mean that the kid uploaded it themselves. Parents can and do share videos with their kids in them

    [–] New Python projects Daveed84 11 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    installing multiple versions of pip from different package managers is the easiest way to hose pip and your python install

    I figured the easiest way to do that would be to use pip with sudo

    [–] What sound immediately pisses you off? Daveed84 1 points ago in AskReddit

    The Samsung whistle ringtone/notification sound thing. You know the one.

    I take a strange comfort in believing that the sound designer for that notification sound probably has it permanently etched into his brain.

    [–] Technical Beta: You can now permanently disable 'On Call Status' Daveed84 2 points ago in thedivision

    GTX 2080 would be a pretty significant upgrade for you. I upgraded from a 970 to a 1080 and was really happy with that decision... 2080 is similar to the 1080 Ti, except cheaper, because it's pretty hard to find new 1080 Ti cards for a reasonable price these days

    [–] Am I a joke to you? Daveed84 2 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in memes

    Well, more specifically it's a smartphone with a foldable display, i.e. the hinge is in the middle of the display... but I don't think Samsung is claiming they were the first to make a smartphone with a foldable display anyway. But as far as I know it is the first mass production device of its type to be sold to consumers

    EDIT: I guess this product was actually the first, but it's a "Developer model", and not a final product, ostensibly

    Well, I mean, I can see all the comments in this specific comment thread, i.e. the one I replied to, so either you reposted it or it got restored

    [–] Jussie Smollett Arrested | Jussie Smollett Upset Over Salary Daveed84 1 points ago in videos

    I'm not lying about anything, this is what it said:

    "Now this is america, where people fake hate crimes because things are going too well"

    If you think that was removed because you think all you said was "America is doing well" and that bothered somebody, then I think you may lack a certain degree of self-awareness and perspective

    I saw your comment and you're kind of mischaracterizing it here... That said, I'm not sure it broke any of the sub rules, so it probably shouldn't have been removed

    [–] Jussie Smollett Arrested | Jussie Smollett Upset Over Salary Daveed84 1 points ago in videos

    I'm rather center-left so leftists think I'm a dickhead too.

    There are dozens of us! Dozens!

    Seriously though, this isn't (or shouldn't?) be a partisan issue. Hate crimes are a real thing, and they seem to be on the rise, so there's certainly some cause for concern. But faking one is just totally absurd, it doesn't help anything. The dude is either mentally ill or a complete idiot, or maybe both
