  2. Angry reply based on bad interpretation of joke. Racist reply which is slightly irrelevant. Over-the-top analogy comparing you to Hitler. Statement requesting exact metric units to facilitate a reference point for said comparison. Long-winded refusal to provide any evidence to back up my claim followed by insistence that it is indeed true nonetheless. Complaint that the liberal media focuses too much on fact-checking and not enough on wild Hitler hyperbole, henceforth known as Hitlerbole.

  5. Abortion should be illegal. Harvesting unborn fetuses for McDonald's to serve as breakfast food is totally fine though. Just sucks that I can never make it there early enough to get my McFetus.
  6. I'll take your extra copy of Frogatto if you're not super attached to it.

  8. Honestly, with as money hungry as TTG are lately, I wouldn't put it past them to climb on board with that. Wouldn't that be a reason to not put it on origin? No one would buy it. Not if EA were offering them a sweet pile of cash to make it Origin exclusive.

  10. They have the right to develop any game using any resources they deem essential. Game development, especially AAA titles, almost 100% of the time involves contracted work to other studios. Look at Aliens Colonial Marines. Gearbox had the rights to make that game, but Timegate ended up making a good portion of it. There are almost NEVER provisions in a contract that would explicitly forbid them from having an outside studio work on a game. EA can have whoever they want develop a Star Wars game, since they are the license holder. When Lucasarts held the Sam & Max license, they could have had any random independent studio they wanted produce a game, but they didn't. Video game development is far different than many other businesses, because limited resources and project deadlines are so tight that they almost always end up needing contract work, even if it's just contracting out some texture production to a team in Singapore, or something like that. No contract in the video game world that's even somewhat coherent would exclude a company from being able to contract development out.

  12. I'm pretty sure most people in modern society subscribe to the "I'll do whatever I want and then just say sorry to Jesus just before I die and it'll be cool" version of Christianity.
  13. I'm not sure you understand how marketing or contract law work, but they almost certainly have the ability to contract out game development for a game they're publishing. They have the rights to develop and publish Star Wars games, that doesn't mean they'd magically be excluded from contracting development out to a studio they don't own. Also, "From the makers of the award-winning 2012 GOTY: The Walking Dead, comes Star Wars: The Search For More Money" sounds way the hell better as a sales pitch than "EA tries to cash in on TWD formula with bad Star Wars rip-off"
  14. What does EA having the franchise rights have to do with allowing TTG to develop a game? How does this automatically mean it's impossible? You really think EA's going to look at the success of TWD and say "F YOU TELLTALE, WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET YOU USE THIS LICENSE AND SHARE YOUR FREE MONEY WITH US"?
  15. But mainstream idiots like to feel smart, not dumb. They don't want anything that challenges them to think about something other than whether they'll buy their next shirt at American Eagle or Abercrombie & Fitch.
  16. The saddest thing is that Big Fish Games are doing more to keep adventure games alive than Telltale.
  17. It's on the 31st everywhere, not just Europe. Halloween is another way of saying "All Hallows Eve" which is the day before All Hallows Day (aka. All Saints Day). All Saints Day is November 1st. Therefore, Halloween is always on the 31st of October. Perhaps where Flesk lives they celebrate it on the Saturday beforehand (though I didn't find that), but the holiday itself is on the 31st, so says Wikipedia. Maybe flesk is just confused because people tend to have Halloween parties on the weekend before Halloween, since that's when everyone's off work.
  18. *She The title under the username says "King". Kings are male. He. My title says Ronnie James Dio, which I am in fact not. Your argument stands on shaky ground, good sir. But Ronnie James Dio lives on in all of us, so you are, in a way, Ronnie James Dio.
