Federation Force? More like Federation FORCED, amirite? (Also, my hands hurt.)

First the King lost the throne, and now he's bent on taking it back.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

John 'Total Biscuit' Bain Suffers Relapse
Posted on Thursday, October 15 2015 @ 11:05:42 PST

I don't have to introduce Total Biscuit.  You know who he is.  I respect his work but admit I know it half as well as I should like.

In a Twitlonger post today he revealed that his cancer has relapsed and he's been given a life expectancy of 2-3 years.  He remains confident and fully intends to land in the outlier camp and to fight it to the bitter end.  I wish him the best of luck.

There's never enough time.  God dammit.

The World Turned Upside Down
Posted on Sunday, October 11 2015 @ 05:08:29 PST

WB is looking to unseat EA as worst publisher in the industry as EA goes out of its way to rebuild the damaged relationship it has with its customers.  Battletech is coming back.  The biggest Kickstarter success is well on its way to become the biggest Kickstarter failure.  Activision nearly torpedoes the launch of Destiny in order to unsuccessfully cheat the composer of the game's soundtrack out of what amounts to a small drop of water in a big bucket of money because he had the nerve to speak up publicly about their violations of previously made agreements.  Some things really do change.  Others, they don't change, except to become more of what they already were.

Take Ubisoft, for example.  Their customer service and shoehorning of uPlay are notoriously terrible and have been for years.  They were foisting SecuROM on people before it was even fashionable.  They've run two different franchises into the ground - Heroes of Might and Magic and Assassin's Creed - and are the poster boy for hideous, messy launches.  Now, they seem to want to stay in the running for the spot that Activision and WB are fighting over now that EA is working so hard to vacate it.  They have found a bold, innovative, strategy for getting ahead in the terrible publisher arms race.  Forget tied in DRM that was so bad and such a deal breaker that Valve offered no questions asked refunds for From Dust.  Forget potentially ruining Eric Chahi's reputation in the process of said fiasco.  No, they've found the new frontier of flat-out ripping their customers off.

Found via Reddit: "Ubisoft uses misleading advertising for Heroes of Might & Magic 7 Collector's Edition in the US and refuses refunds to disappointed customers"

I'm pretty sure this is illegal in several different ways at once.  I'm also pretty sure this is one of the worst things Ubisoft has ever done.  One of the comments below links an unboxing video in which the unboxer mentions that the packaged disc was shipped separately for some reason which leads me to believe that, much like most of Ubisoft's other colossal failures over the last ten years, it's a product of incompetence rather than malice but the lack of customer care in the wake of it cannot be given such a forgiving (but ultimately futile) slant.

May those who have been so deceived nail Ubisoft to the wall for this.  May everyone who learns of this incident resolve to avoid pre-ordering things forever.
