This multiplayer mode was something truly unique and spawned its own fan project called Renegade X, which revived the idea in Unreal Engine 4 and even got blessing from #EA to continue development, on the condition it always has to be free.
Unfortunately the team behind this iteration turned out extremely problematic, so I left them behind.

EA should really consider a Syndicate (2012) remaster.
While extremely linear and fairly short, this Starbreeze Studios-developed FPS was quite a looker back then ... and it played well, too. In fact, Syndicate was ahead of its time in terms of gameplay.
Even the #wiiu sold more than enough that you can find a replacement unit.
Were this not the case, it would be a nerds only friend..
The often made observation that some modern set of ideas (eg communism, #EA) that aims beyond the individual has something in common with a religion - it's neither as damning nor as astute as people think.
Just what you get if you aim beyond the individual. Religions were attempts, other things are attempts, too. Doesn't mean they're the same.
Today is my last day lecturing in the #AI class so I made a tunic from imagined redacted government documents about alien invasions, along with my data pants and the fire shawl I've been knitting for the last month. #OpenAI drama, #EA / #EAcc, org models, human relationships, and all that jazz! #DHsewing

#EA #EffectiveAltruism #SiliconValley #LongTermism: "The problem with removing the messy, squishy, human part of decisionmaking is you can end up with an ideology like effective altruism: one that allows a person to justify almost any course of action in the supposed pursuit of maximizing their effectiveness.
Take, for example, the widely held belief among EAs that it is more effective for a person to take an extremely high-paying job than to work for a non-profit, because the impact of donating lots of money is far higher than the impact of one individual’s work. (The hypothetical person described in this belief, I will note, tends to be a student at an elite university rather than an average person on the street — a detail I think is illuminating about effective altruism’s demographic makeup.) This is a useful way to justify working for a company that many others might view as ethically dubious: say, a defense contractor developing weapons, a technology firm building surveillance tools, or a company known to use child labor. It’s also an easy way to justify life’s luxuries: if every hour of my time is so precious that I must maximize the amount of it spent earning so I may later give, then it’s only logical to hire help to do my housework, or order takeout every night, or hire a car service instead of using public transit.
The philosophy has also justified other not-so-altruistic things: one of effective altruism’s ideological originators, William MacAskill, has urged people not to boycott sweatshops (“there is no question that sweatshops benefit those in poor countries“, he says). Taken to the extreme, someone could feasibly justify committing massive fraud or other types of wrongdoing in order to obtain billions of dollars that they could, maybe someday, donate to worthy causes. You know, hypothetically."
No Starfield? No problem! Turn Mass Effect into the first-person space RPG of your dreams with this mod
Another Steam sale, another period where EA, Capcom, Bethesda, Microsoft and 2K continue to charge Mexican customers on Steam 10 to 30% higher prices than someone who lives in the USA.
And then they go around and blame -us- for the piracy. If you're not gonna give us proper regional pricing, at least *make our prices the same as the US*, you greedy bastards. #steam #valve #EA #capcom #bethesda #SteamSale

Immortals of Aveum gets a demo
Whatever happens we should always remember that any #EA or #Longtermist rationale #SamAltman offers is, first & foremost, a rationalization for doing what he thinks he needs to to get what he wants. #EffectiveAltruism, #Longtermism, the whole #TESCREAL bundle really, are all thirst-traps for sociopaths & narcissists.
Why - sincerely, why - am I surprised to learn that so many people involved with #EA have families with fucked-up moral codes?
Played again some Star Wars #Battlefront II (2017). It's still an amazing, amazing game, despite its obvious (thankfully non-functioning) micro-transactions design, which left it crippled forever. I weep for #DICE for letting themselves fall into the ugly, greedy mouth of #EA, instead of making great videogames. What a tremendous loss for #StarWars and #gaming.
#EA just permanently suspended my newly created account.
I had to create an account and log in to play the game i bought.
A few days ago I bought a game on Steam to play with my boyfriend with remote play, and we played it for around 2 hours.
Now i get an email telling me my Account has been permanently suspended.
For what lol? For playing a none online game?
I might just refund cause this is utterly bullshit. I have hit them up with a support ticket now, will post updates as reply to this message.

EA might not care about Dungeon Keeper anymore, but this open-source 4K remake spent 15 years in the making to reach version 1.0
This N7 Day, please honor Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy by supporting the developers and creatives that BioWare/EA has harmed and continues to harm.
Layoffs are a choice, not a natural disaster. And employees are due fair severance pay and compensation--not intimidation, stalling, and refusal to pay fair wages.
I get the sense that #AssemblyTheory doesn't have the same kind of malicious intent behind it as #EA. Feels like some guys indentified a promising analytical approach & then tried to reason back from that to universal significance. But I can see it having broad, transformative, & devastating impact, as it's used to manufacture certainty by miscasting probability as destiny.
To me the most interesting un-addressed question about #AssemblyTheory is what are the ways we can imagine its assessments being wrong? Assembly Index is already being framed as a determinative value, when it's really a chain of hypotheticals. In that way it strongly resembles the #EffectiveAltruism trick (& in #EA it is absolutely a trick) of following a quasi-Socratic chain to claiming that we will "likely" populate the universe with scadzillions of simulated human brains in a jar.
Solidarity with everyone at KWS! ✊

#Longtermism is kind of a brilliant euphemism since what normal non-psychopathic person would confuse "Long term good" with "what matters is my imaginary future persons; let's just let everyone now living die in agony over a period of several generations so I can continue to indulge my cultic fantasies."

‘Before It’s Too Late, Buddy’
This is what happens when you spend two years unmasking a well-funded Silicon Valley “apocalypse cult.”
"This scenario is eerily similar to what Yudkowsky is advocating: military actions that could cause a genocidal nuclear catastrophe, if necessary to keep the techno-utopian dream alive."
So I think we all need to come to terms with BioWare being a dead studio walking. It pains me to say it, and I really want to be wrong but…they fired a lead writer for Varric and the tech lead for #DragonAgeDreadwolf. Those are not good signs. I want to be wrong, I do, but…yeah.
#EA and #Maxis really have to clarify is Project René is Sims 5 or not, because it looks more and more like a multiplayer mobile game (it is 100% compatible with mobile after all) and seems to have no build mode, extremely cartoony graphics...
Point is the official Sims community is burning up over this and if it's NOT Sims 5 the studio(s) need to put their foot down before rumors take over completely.
However, questions remain about the flood outflow system for the reservoir, and changes made during recent placement of a pipeline to West Cumbria are still to be tested in highflows:
After the disaster #KeswickFloodActionGroup #KFAG worked with the #EnvironmentAgency #EA and #UnitedUtilities to petition that during the flood risk season (autumn – winter) the reservoir is maintained 3m below full, to prevent flooding, and also, when there is heavy rainfall to gradually release increased amounts out to the St Johns Beck.
Now that the PC version plays...okay, I can finally get my Jedi on.
Still disturbed by the lack of poncho!

You ever wonder how Electronic Arts feel about everybody going in two-footed on the #EA people?
#EA is a stopgap. *While* working for political reforms to distribute wealth more widely, how much can I give this year to relieve suffering?
Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered was on sale for cheap, so I grabbed it.
And well, if anyone can remaster a game to be worse, #EA, uh, finds a way
The XBOX app for PC updated and when I logged back in, I noticed my #EA app library of games populated alongside my #XBOX PC/Play Anywhere games. All fine and great until I noticed something odd--I cannot launch them from the XBOX app.
Instead, it is an ad to play the games I already own on PC (via the EA app) on #xboxgamepassforpc
In an era where launchers stack on top of each other to run the games I want to play, what in the blue hell is this?
"If anything, Gebru’s statement doesn’t go far enough: longtermism, which emerged out of the effective altruism (EA) movement over the past few years, is eugenics on steroids"
