    What Are You Working On?

    So they already reverted https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2021/01/22/update-on-xbox-live-gold-pricing/ [UPDATED on 1/22/2021 at 8:52 PM PT] We messed up today and you were right to let us know. Connecting and playing with friends is a vital part of gaming and we failed to meet the expectations of players who count on it every day. As a result, we have decided not to change Xbox Live Gold pricing. We’re turning this moment into an opportunity to bring Xbox Live more in line with how we see the player at the center of their experience. For free-to-play games, you will no longer need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play those games on Xbox. We are working hard to deliver this change as soon as possible in the coming months. If you are an Xbox Live Gold member already, you stay at your current price for renewal. New and existing members can continue to enjoy Xbox Live Gold for the same prices they pay today. In the US, $9.99 for 1-month, $24.99 for 3-months, $39.99 for 6-months and $59.99 for retail 12-months. Thank you.

  3. I want to finish this video but I have to wait on recording as my voice is all messed up from being sick. Oh and despite the 17 pages (probably about an hours worth of video if well edited with faster talking) I still feel like I only touched the surface of a few topics. This sort of thing really deserves many, many videos or write-ups but that's not what gets the clicks yo

  5. Just worth noting here - this is not an absolute. My argument is more about the theoretical highs and lows of asymm vs symm. Obviously a bad asymm is worse than an excellent symmetrical map. And it is possible to still pull a good experience - like KOTH Construct (not a total sym but whatever) out of things, I'm just thinking in a design sense ; where is the ceiling. And it just makes way more design sense to make an assym map for an assym game mode. Much higher high. I imagine that absolute perfect symmetrical map might make an alright asymm experience - it's more a question of why you would pursue that. You're just limiting yourself, and wasting potential for cool encounters.

  6. Man, that’s the saddest shit I’ve ever read. Business without principles, all they can do is walk back because a bunch of people got mad outside their doors. Too bad you need some combination of a/ 7 years of executive experience b/ 10+ years industry experience c/ an MBA d/ a former political office e/ 10% or more of company stock f/ be a clinically diagnosed schitzoid/mental case with a Twitter acct g/ a public school teacher h/ a public intellectual in good standing with the right opinions to change the way they operate.

  8. A point on syms encounters mirrored on the axis will have two possible angles of approach, forward(A) and backward(B). syms like citadel are semi-rotational in that there is a donut around which players circulate through the map and meet at either A/B., and which is mirrored rotationally around an axial continuum. There are opportunities for interesting encounters in the central atrium, which is not necessarily subject to the continuum, but those are short lived because risk/reward design. A similar effect is obtained with the Midship 2axial symmetry, however Midship does not have a symmetrical continuum and therefore encounters are slightly different. Whereas Citadel will give you encounters A for the entire time you are moving in one direction around its donut path, Midship will flip from encounters A to B (and A' to B') based on where you are relative to your base. So like... there are definitely ways to make symmetrical maps interesting for asymmetrical objective gamemodes and slayer alike, but you're gonna be hard-pressed to find a way to do it that isn't in donut form.
