    You're really pushing it. Is Offworld Trading co and Gal Civ 3 worth it?

    It's been a long time since I've outright laughed at a Penny Arcade strip... a return to form:

    Activision-Blizzard spun Bungie off. The comic implies that Bungie wants to go back in and save Blizzard, too.

    I'm playing the Anthem demo, and it doesn't have in game chat. The reason it doesn't have in game chat? Because, starting 2019, in game chat is considered to be in violation of the FCC's rules on accessibility for disabled persons for communications software, which for some fucking reason video games fall under. And I don't mean VOIP, I mean just regular fucking text chat. As if there are people playing Anthem who can't see, or some shit. It has VOIP, btw, because apparently fuck the deaf. We live in a strange timeline.

    edit: but we already knew the FCC was run by complete idiots.



    Turns out this is Obama era legislation. Thanks, Obama...

    Erm, sounds at bit of an odd excuse especially if it has chat via VOIP.

    Because the regs that say...

    (i) Operable without vision. Provide at least one mode that does not require user vision.

    Which VOIP would cover.

    also say...

    (iv) Operable without hearing. Provide at least one mode that does not require user auditory perception.
    (ix) Operable without speech. Provide at least one mode that does not require user speech.

    Which text chat would cover if they included it, but VOIP exclude, and having VOIP means it counts as an "advanced communications services" and thus covered by the same law as if it only had text based chat.

    Relevant waiver.

    Relevant CVAA legislation

    seems if they include VOIP then they have to include speech-to-text, and text-to-speech anyway.
