I am speechless. This whole situation is so hard to believe I am amazed. I have waited almost 20 years for a sequel and this is what happens. I can only hope that it flops so hard every single person in charge of any creative aspect about the game gets fired or even go into debt.

>Ubisoft said Wednesday that it would depreciate around 500 million euros of capitalized research and development and narrow its focus to fewer titles.

Hopefully it continues to be developed since it appears to be a massive case of sunken cost fallacy and Ubishit will hopefully be on its way to bankruptcy over it, all the canceled projects, and the missed sales figures for new games.
>The Callisto Protocol bombs, misses initial sales estimates by over 3 million
Sounds like a tax write off or copying Square in over estimating sales. It has good sales numbers anyway, there just isn't a chance a horror game from a new studio would pull insane numbers. Especially since the game has performance problems and the game doesn't even have an ending, it just teases one.

Slightly funny that 4chan is the default for people to point their fingers at when pedophiles come up when sites like Reddit are way more disgusting with the pedo shit to the point that the founder Aaron Swartz was a CP (actual CP) advocate.
Pic related was a pedophile tranny hired to be an admin on plebbit that was eventually and swiftly fired after a few hundred users got banned for protesting the decision to hire him.
>enemy's intelligence and R&D specialists
Anon I think you put way too much faith in the "pros". Having had some insight in western defence industry that was at least "working okay" I highly doubt outside countries have the capability to identify a well crafted fake. 
On the other hand I also have doubts anyone would go through the hassle to setup a task force just to make a convincing document, I mean sure you could put an engineer or two to shit out some technical manual. 
I guess what I'm saying is that the intelligence community could probably come up with the plan but I have a hard time seeing them getting a lot of interest from the companies that could feasibly make the documents, they have better shit to do.

Besides, a lot of blueprints and such is already out there, from both sides. The hard part of advanced equipment is production anyway.

Youtube won't die unless they kill themselves. They fuck 90% of their uploaders over but they keep their cash cows around. Unprofitable uploaders will leave every once in a while,  but not fast enough for users to notice. 
The only way for youtube to die is a sudden mass censorship directed at the users, and not just the demonetization/suggested game they keep playing with creators.  
Youtube's new monetization content dictates they can retroactively refuse to pay you and withdraw money from your account, yet the affected are still uploading, and they'll keep uploading as longs as there are users watching. Youtube's entire system, from the removal of the dislike bar, to the comments filled with censorship and scam bots, to the atrocious google-like search that effectively shoves ads in your face rather than what you're actively searching for, it's all extremely hostile to users, yet they'll keep using it as long as the people they watch are still uploading. 
The lack of decent alternative certainly doesn't help, but the users are the biggest problem, as always.

I played this, it's not nearly as bad as people make it out to be, just kind of shallow and underdeveloped. I would love it if they expanded on this concept and made it more focused on cooperative play, but I got to agree that laying this on us right as Kojima quit and MGS5 never got finished was the worst possible move, however you have to realize that the game was likely in pre production even before MGS5 was finished so there was little that the devs could do about it. Maybe Konami hoped that Kojima's name would salvage the title in the eyes of his fanbase, but obviously that never happened

Wasn't the Bowser's Inside Story remake the one that killed them? I thought the Superstar Saga remake did decently well financially
Replies: >>185759
Both were unnecessary. Superstar Saga's main issue was assigning too many controls to too few buttons. They had double the buttons on the 3DS but still make you cycle through each action or use the touchscreen which is impractical. They also made it way too easy, while the original was real picky on timing, the remake gave you way too much leeway and removed the hammer hold timer entirely, mega gay. At least most of the music is good, while Bowletta's theme is superior to the original, Cackletta's Soul theme is far inferior in the remake.

Not at all surprised.  
Not just chia, but certain games can chew through the TBW limit of an SSD more than you'd expect. Biggest examples are Fromsoft's games due to them constantly saving/writing to the SSD every second during gameplay. Granted, the TBW limit on modern SSDs are higher than they were years ago and would take years for it to reach the limit (depending on how often data is written onto them), but still something to keep track of.
>Remember how Denuvo thrashed disks a few years ago?
It still does, but most don't notice it happening right away due to higher TBW limits.

For those unfamiliar with TBW (Terabytes Written), it represents the amount of data that can be written on an SSD's flash memory cells before it loses or starts to lose the ability to write anything new on the drive (even if you delete things off of it). You cannot recover the amount used, at least not on your own easily (correct me if I'm wrong). After the limit, you can still read and backup data from the SSD, but that's as much as you can do with it at that point. You can't even archive them, as the memory cells deteriorate over time (months) if not powered/connected to power in some way (such as motherboards for NVMe models). Even so, newer SSDs have much higher limits than before that would take years to reach with normal use (barring what I mentioned above), so it's not as large of an issue as it would've been 5-10 years ago. The TBW for each SSD is different depending on the brand and size. If you have SSDs in use, make sure to check them using software like Crystal Disk Info to keep tabs on how much has already been used (with said software, it will be "Total Host Writes") and it's health.
