"Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 was the final episode of Game of Thrones, and most people didn’t even realize it.  Although many viewers missed this part, at the end of this episode Daenerys was killed along with both her dragons, Tyrion, and a big chunk of her Unsullied, all of whom succumbed to a lethal dose of terminal stupidity.  That didn’t happen you say?  Let me prove to you that it did, and that everything proceeding from this point forward is a complete and total lie, delusional fan fiction of the lowest kind."

This youtuber presents an interesting thesis.

I hadn't been aware of the degree to which game publishers (as well as, indirectly, large retailers like Wal-Mart) are structuring financial incentives in developer contracts based on Metacritic score thresholds. (For example: The developers of Fallout: New Vegas reportedly missed a million-dollar bonus by 1 "point" when the game garnered an overall score of 84 on Metacritic, instead of the 85 stipulated in their contract with Bethesda.)

And so: as a developer if you want to earn those bonuses, the smart strategy may be to inject politics into your game that aligns with that of the ideologues and activist 'journalists' writing most of the reviews.

Examples are given in the video of such activist bloggers—ahem!—"game journalists" knocking games' scores down for either having the 'wrong' politics; or, for being merely apolitical enough to lack sufficient 'correct' political messaging woven into the game's story.

It's bizarre to me that a game developer's financial well-being would be tied contractually to some arbitrary number on a review aggregation website. Particularly given the leaked emails a few years back that exposed a cabal of dozens of reviewers for high-profile gaming websites coordinating to tailor their game reviews along political lines.

Johnny tried to flood the server (2)

The Q2Admin software is being a bit overdramatic here, as it turns out this particular error just means the client made too many changes to a userinfo variable, like "skin" or "hand" or "name" or "rate", etc.

P.S. my parents were not thrilled with the notion of my playing electric guitar; and my first practice amp (circa 1982) was presumably the cheapest available in the local music store:

To my present-day annoyance, I think that lackluster amp may have survived all the moves since then and still reside in a closet somewhere; whereas I sold gear along the way (e.g. rackmount Yamaha SPX-90 effects processor that I'd bought new in the mid/late 80's) that I wish I still owned today. :D

Oh well.


Most of all - have fun!
