at least its a low brainpower game being bought by a peddler of low brain power games.  imagine what would happen if it was EA or Ubisoft.

Re: Activision taking over Candy Crush - prepare yourself for endless deriviatives!
Candy Crush IS a derivative.  That base game has existed for at least a decade in other skins.  It baffles me how these things make such insane amounts of cash and get away with being complete ripoffs of **** you could find on newgrounds in 1999.  (I completely pulled that year out of my ass, please don't flamespray me if newgrounds hasn't been around that long :))

Oldest version of this gameplay I could find with a quick search is 1994.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!
* z64555 erases "Thursday" and rewrites it in red ink

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

The funniest part is how they bought it for more than Disney bought Lucasarts. Google it. 5.9 B $ vs 4.05 B $.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.
