We have the science to build an Ebola vaccine. So why hasn't it happened?

Quote
The problem, instead, is the economics of drug development. Pharmaceutical companies have little incentive to pour research and development dollars into curing a disease that surfaces sporadically in low-income, African countries. They aren't likely to see a large pay-off at the end and could stand to lose money.
This is tough.  Do we somehow force these companies to make a product that will lose them money?  Ethically, short-term answer is yes, but what of the impacts beyond profit?

Looking further into what they changed, I am disappointed that this is what they came up with.  This is not Sacred and should not have been billed as a sequel in any form.

I'm not sure about the cross-buy status of these games, but this is what they posted.  Fez and Proteus are cross-buy when you buy it but Dragon's Crown isn't. 

Dragon's Crown isn't cross buy, but a Sony rep confirmed that PS+ users will get both versions.
Nice.  I had read through the comments looking but didn't see that they had confirmed this.  I already have it on Vita, so hopefully it lets me download the PS3 version.
126  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: July 31, 2014, 12:38:05 PM
So the sequel to two of the longest action RPGs is reduced to 7.5 hours of content? Even if that is the main quest only, it's way too short.

well, this sucks for Crytek

http://kotaku.com/deep-silver-buys-homefront-1613349084

it apparently won't need a complete restart though:

Quote
Firstly, Crytek has been in extensive discussions with leading producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, Koch Media, regarding the acquisition of rights for the "Homefront" IP. On completion of the proposed acquisition, the Homefront team from Crytek's Nottingham studio would transfer their talents to Koch Media in compliance with English law and continue their hard work on upcoming shooter, "Homefront: The Revolution". Both parties hope to finalize and implement a deal soon.

also, Crytek Austin is gone except for engine support.

yeah, I've never understood the drive to buy a phone full price either unless you travel out of the country a lot.  Otherwise, you pay the same monthly rate I do as a subscriber but paid more for your phone.  I know it's due to the companies not wanting to cut profits though. 

130  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] EA Access on: July 30, 2014, 04:28:54 PM
fwiw, Crysis 3 (an EA published game) is free next month on PS+.  Battlefield 3 and Kingdoms of Amalur were on it a year ago as well. 

They aren't that common on PS+, but they have had them on (and still do).

yup, you can see it before he drops off the bridge.
Also, RR's smartass delivery perfectly fits Deadpool.  Not sure whom else would be a good fit for the character.

133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: July 30, 2014, 03:29:37 PM
the story is a bit much, but once you get past that, you have an action rpg with leveling up characters, special powers and extra modes (time trials, arena combat, score modes) and you can skip the extra characters as long as you can keep the kids away from the display.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: July 30, 2014, 03:14:57 PM
I get to throw in a lone vote for the Skylanders game.  It plays well with kids and as long as you can keep the 'collect-em-all' drive down, you get a lot of game out of the basic package.  There's also a higher difficulty which suits a more adult level of play.

Been waiting for Rogue Legacy on Vita so patiently, so definitely that.  I keep going back and forth on whether I will get the remastered Last of Us.

Is RL cross-buy with PS4? I might be interested in that if it is.

Yep.
Good, but that price is a bit high for me considering I have it on PC.  I will be getting the pre-order for Counterspy though, and maybe the Swapper.

Today, I'm hoping that I'll have a job when I get back from vacation. Just heard that a bunch of long time employees just got laid off.  18,000 total, and at least half a dozen from my group.  I may be going back to close up the shop. :/

Microsoft?
yup.  The group I work for was rolled into the big umbrella division with phones and XB earlier this year.  Good thing I'm in sysops.  Worst case, I go in and find an empty office and directions to repackage all equipment, then go somewhere for reassignment.  Still, it sucks for many I worked, some more than 20 years.
