    No, it's trying to ask what "clique" you're in, not what clique the games are in. In this case it's asking what big popular timesink game do you put your time into.

    You're not thinking politically - help your wife win and then start bringing in that sweet lobbyist money, then you can buy a dozen computers!

    If you look at Brolo's link, many examples of this thing (including the one that was posted in the webcomics thread) group multiple things together at each table. Of course that doesn't really work with big timesink games since they dominate your time and prevents you from playing more than one. I guess I agree with the twitter person calling this a bad version of this meme.

    And I have definitely spent too long thinking about this already.

    I just played a mission in Heat Signature where the goal was to assassinate an armored target who explodes when they die using only an armor-piercing sword. Also some of their guards were explosive. Luckily, you can throw the sword with deadly accuracy. UNluckily, I threw the sword with deadly accuracy at an explosive guard before I got to the armored target. Which wouldn't be a problem, except that they were in a room with a window... which they blew up.

    I was blown out of the window along with their bits and pieces and also critically: the armor-piercing sword. So I picked myself up with my drone remotely and got back to work on the ship, sans sword. I take out a lot of the folks on the ship with a wrench to the noggin, but when I meet the target, having forgotten they had armor, I find myself at a loss. So I use a key-cloner to grab their security card, teleport behind them, and raid a safe on the other side of the ship using that stolen card. The safe has a Swapper in it, which lets me switch places with any target in a small radius. I run to my drone, line it up as close to the target as I can, and eject into space.

    One shot of the swapper later, and I remote my drone back to the entry point and saunter back to it through a bunch of concussed guards right before I get the assassination complete pop-up.

    This is a very good game!

    I would still be playing a lot of Overwatch but I fucked up my left hand playing it too much so I have to not play any kbam games until an unknown point in the future.
    Possibly forever? Gaming is truly the most dangerous game.

    A Thief reference? I'm actually impressed.

    Kieron Gillen wrote a then-somewhat-famous PC Gamer UK review of the original Deus Ex that was just him exhaustively recounting like six or eight different ways that he approached a particular level in the game, and he also did a long thinkpiece about the Shalebridge Cradle level in Thief 3; that kind of deep dive was an almost unheard-of novelty back in 2004. He's super in the tank for the Origin/Looking Glass/Ion Storm/Irrational bloodline of games and I think used to post in the TTLG community back in the day.

    The Borderlands 3 saga continues

    A Youtuber, SupMatto, posted a video about Borderlands 3 leaks back in April, after a Twitch account being used to test the Twitch features of the game (like spawning enemies onto a broadcaster's stream) was discovered. He did not make the discovery but took thumbnails from the streams before the account was wiped/made private and reported on content that was shown.

    He has since posted a video claiming that 2K/Gearbox has since flooded his channel with copyright strikes as well as sent two private investigators to his home to question and, in his words, intimidate him.

    2K has defended these actions, seemingly confirming they are accurate, by saying they are "maintaining the security of their confedential trade secrets".

    Basically another facet of the whole "It's easier for companies to exploit influencers than larger media entities" deal

    Like if Kotaku dropped a bunch of hot BL3 leaks, the worst 2k would do is get huffy and stop sending them shit to review

    I think thats understating the amount of pressure put on game "journalism" websites.

    Theyre press release webites for a reason. 6/10 (isnt it up to 7 or 8 now?) reviews are a shared joke for a reason. Journalists will be fired, sometimes directly but more ofyen indirectly, for not being positive towards AAA game companies.

    Even if 2k were to attempt to put pressure on one of the larger sites, they are all backed by major media companies with people to deal with that

    2k wouldn't send hired goons to go scare the person that published the leaks because you can't do that shit

    Unless you're just dealing with Some Dude from the Internet, which is how publishers like it, because they can basically do what the fuck ever

    EDIT: Oh nevermind you just have some weird axe to grind with games websites

    Giant Bomb literally exists because a publisher got so mad at about a negative review that they successfully pressured the management at Gamespot to fire Jeff Gerstmann, who had worked there for over a decade.

    A thing that has virtually never happened before or since, and became such a huge deal that a large chunk of their editorial staff left

    Yeah that was 12 years ago at this point and was a pretty huge moment of change for a lot of the larger sites

    Obviously you'll still have sites that have some questionable sponsorship integrity but your Kotakus and Gamespots and whatnot are far more transparent about their inner workings and work to maintain their journalistic integrity at least as far as not just farting out press releases and giving an extra point or two cause the publisher bought 50 grands worth of ads

    The thing a lot of people are missing or leaving out is that SupMatto was selling access to a private Discord server with other leaked content: https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/08/07/take-two-addresses-investigation-into-borderlands-3-streamer-leaks

    Even if that's the case, it still sets a dangerous precedent that if a company(a company that makes fucking video games even) doesn't like what you're doing they may send thugs to your house. What did they possibly think that a private investigator could accomplish that the standard legal nastygram and copyright strikes wouldn't be sufficient for if not direct intimidation?
