In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
The first thing I noticed about Shadowrun is that they don’t allow you to save within a chapter. Oh… so *THAT* is how they managed to make the game with so small a budget… it also means that you can’t save within a combat, or before a conversation, or before defusing a bomb or whatever. You restart at the beginning of a chapter. Luckily, a chapter is about the size of one room.
Now, this would normally irritate me until I saw that, hey, they’ve made the tools available for schlubs like you and me to make our own chapters and, thus, our own games. To be sure, *I* am not going to use these tools… but there are teams of folks out there who will and they’ll put out games that will be awesome. Neverwinter Nights had modules that were better than the original game, after all, I have no doubt that Shadowrun Returns will do the same.
The second thing I noticed is that they use X-Com’s combat. I *LOVED* X-Com’s combat.
So… what are you playing?
