Why bet on such fine margins......the risk is not worth it unless he's obviously got six figure bank balance but still.......that looks a bad deal when you balance the risk

Yeah the dude is either lying or an idiot. Maybe both.
The odds on Biden vs. Trump indicate that the election will
be very close.
If bookies were confident Biden wins, the odds on Trump would be much higher 2.5 or 3.0.
The US election system if way too unpredictable imo

Well, I'm not here to shit on Era but I just missed having a community of discussion.

Yeah I was banned there - not because I was toxic or anything. Some mod just decided to jump into conclusions based on something I said and that I actually see on a daily basis. People are nice there (sometimes way too nice), good place of discussion, but I remember I had better times on GAF. That's why I came back (7 years account if I'm not mistaken?!). The mods there are trigger happy and anything that you say that goes against them warrants you a ban. I'm not gonna point out anyone specifically but it's some type of bullshit when you can not express opinions on a discussion forum. Because of that, I tend to just keep it to myself on serious matters and just have fun.

Welcome back CM.

Hahahaha, I was just thinking the exact same thing!

They delayed it due to the influence of ResetEra and want to be an ally to trans people, so they're not releasing it on that day.

All praise Queen Kyuuji.
Oh, sweet Summer child.
Did you assume Kyuuji fake gender title?
There's a lot to unpack here sweetie.
Yikes.
I'm literally shaking.
Pronouns are being targeted aggressively throughout the world
Trump man bad.
I like turtles.
If Sunny D makes you orange, does that mean the company is Republican?

Do you guys feel underrepresented and persecuted? Asking without prejudice, the gays and minorities I know really don't like straight people fighting their causes.

I love our straight "allies". But they do come in different flavours. I dislike the ones that see me as a victim and try to be overprotective. Same thing happens with racism.
When you see posts about cultural appropriation, it's usually the white people starting shit.

And yes, the non binaries are the vegans of the LGBT+ community. Everyone has to hear it and everyone else is stupid for not understanding them.
Of course I do consider non-binary as a gender. But you're not special, bitch. Same goes for trans poeple.

Sometimes I wish the LGBTQ+ gets seperated into "LGB" and "TQ+" because the people within these communties are so different. The people within LGB are very playful and have fun with media and politics. TQ+ are so easily offended and VERY loud. You see that in Resetera a lot.

edit-

If this makes me a transphobe, then so be it. I don't have anything against trans people. I just dislike annoying people who are so full of themselves. The trans and non-binary mods/posters in al social media are ruining lots of dicussion and everything is transphobic. Come on..

Would be a major amount of dick swinging to be had for making CDPR change the launch date, that's for sure.

What do you mean, Banshee? I'm quite sure one of the most successful developers on the planet, delayed one of the most anticipated games of all time, which will be purchased by tens of millions of people, because of some manufactured "concerns" of a nobody like you! Come on, don't sell yourself short!

Why is "Crunch" so vilified. I work in manufacturing and in my industry it'd just be called meeting a deadline. If we promise a date and we're running behind you can bet your ass we're working extra or heck even a day off until we catch up or the product ships. I mean if you're constantly running at that level that's one thing but to have to put in extra hours for a month or two to meet a massive goal wouldn't phase anyone in manufacturing or i'm sure plenty of other industries.

Because they need to white knight everything and they don't have actual jobs so they don't realize that most jobs above a cashier at a pharmacy had deadlines and expectations to meet those deadlines. Even more so if you are salaried. I'm waiting for them to weep for the investment bankers who have to work hellish hours also since both jobs are compensated very well but they only seem to feel bad for video game devs who complain.

I mean, 90% of them are unemployed or unemployable so it’s no surprise they haven’t a clue about how any sort of business works, let alone game development.

Because the mantra there is "work less, not harder,"

Everyone is a delicate, worthy human being who should be appreciated for the merit of their character and the worthwhile opinions that diversify us and make the entire planet worth experiencing. No one should be mandated a deadline on anything. The very definition of work is a construct that rigidly fits into a heteronormative, patriarchal world view that is, frankly, harmful and antiquated. Your deadline should be "whenever it's finished," and if that day never comes, well, that's okay, too! At least you had the strength to try, and that makes you special, friend.

Unless you're white.

Fuck you if you're white.

How about grow a pair?

Suicidal people are the worst. Yes life kinda sucks. Were all going through some shit, no matter what side of the fence you're on. Read a book, pet your dog, watch some feet JOI videos, lift weights, go sing a song

Like people are given this amazing gift of life and all they can do is whine about it on a forum. Shut the fuck up

A long haul flight from wherever you are.
Every. Single. Day.

I did briefly consider compiling them all, but yes it's really 8 or more. Always the same, always back to the well for a hugbox and no positive steps taken to seek therapy. That forum is basically enabling his behavior and bringing in more copycats.

So predictable, and Planetsmasher is one of the most vocal assholes on that site as well. "Let's make everyone as miserable as I am under the guise of activism".

Eh yes and no.

I think some people are just wired wrong whether by nature or by the nurturing process. Like chemically they're just not...right. I have a lot of sympathy for those people.

Then there are others where it's a phase and they're just not handling their problems in a mature or productive way. Basically threatening a permanent solution to a short term problem.

Unfortunately there's not a great way to screen between the two.

Ever notice how the vast vast majority of devs stay quiet and accept crunch? It’s not them that complain, it’s only the blue haired crowd and those who’s business is to provoke drama (eras beloved Jason) who actually complain.

Most of them think crunch is the same as them being forced to pull 80 hour weeks at a retail job. They have no frame of reference other than the hours needed.

Maybe I'm an outlier, but I've been diagnosed with all kinds of crazy crap. I told my doctors to shove it and just started working on myself. I've had friends on meds and all they ever do is whine about life.

I have chemical imbalances : exercise, nutrition, and finding new passions still helps. I have my off days but unless you're seriously off your rocker, I'd always advise going for an alternative to medication. Shit can be so bad for your kidneys, etc

You need to address the problem at its root. One way or the other
