Most major companies have completely stopped offering employees stock options. Some companies do it to save money, while others do it for more complex reasons. There have been a few issues that have convinced companies to stop.

 

Dropping of the stock value, makes it hard for employees to execute their options. Employees grow concerned with this type of compensation. Stock options end up burdening company accountants.

 

There are however, some benefits to stock options. This type of compensation is easily understood by employees. The options cause employees to work harder at making the company successful.

 

When it comes to options, Jeremy Goldstein suggests the knockout options. It has very similar characteristics as the regular stock options. However, when they fall below a set amount, employees will lose them. Knockout options are less stressful on company accountants and there is no risk of option overhang.

 

Companies that consider the possibility of knockout options, should wait at least a year after the current derivatives expire before offering replacements. If the company decides not to wait, their corporate quarterly statement may look negative.

 

Knockout options may not be a solution to every problem, but they do get rid of many of the major obstacles related to compensation based on stock. It is recommended though that executives of the company speak with auditors about the implications of providing knockout options. It will take time to see if knockout options are right for you.

Most Boring Video Game of All Time Comes to Steam

We are living in the unbridled age of technology. Video games are more elaborate, beautiful and effective than ever before. You can completely immerse yourself in any number of titles on any number of consoles. Along with this technological innovation, we have seen gamers turn to the dull with a bizarre fascination. Gamers having an affinity for bizarre titles is nothing new, look at Goat Simulator as an example, but the latest craze in gaming simply leaves us shrugging our shoulders. The latest bizarre craze that has gamers spending money is called Desert Bus VR. Desert Bus VR is exactly what the title implies with no surprises. Let’s dig into one of the most bizarre titles in the entire Steam library.

Desert Bus VR is an existential crisis that masquerades as a video game, all wrapped within an actual good cause — a charity called the Desert Bus for Hope. All of that is beside the fact, however, as what you do in the game is what is making headlines. In Desert Bus VR you get on board of a bus, in the desert, and drive from Arizona to Nevada. Well, we say drive but we don’t mean that. We mean that you are a passenger. On a bus. Driving from Arizona to Nevada. That is it. There is no real gameplay. There isn’t any goal. You are along for the ride. The sheer ludicrous concept was initially released through a mini-game pack from Penn & Teller (yes, the Vegas stars) and it has since been re-packaged and ‘updated’ for release in virtual reality.

The VR remake of Desert Bus gives you the chance to experience the long journey from Arizona to Nevada in the first person. A few of the ‘big updates’ include the ability to play a radio, honk the bus horn, and even ride on the bus with a few other friends in the multiplayer mode. Purchases of Desert Bus VR go toward the charity Child’s Play and thus far sales have raised more than $650,000 for the charitable cause.

WebRTC Is Changing Things With Talk Fusion As The Leading Competitor

In an attempt to stay the leader in technology, Talk Fusion has made big plans once more. Their plans are to open one of the best offices they have in New Delhi, India. Recently they opened an office where the people in India can come to work for Talk Fusion, the Independent Associates leader in marketing.

 

The independent associates of Talk Fusion operate from 140 countries and one of those offices now included is in India. The hope is to bring some relief to those working in the country by giving them access to the quick pay feature with Talk Fusion. This is not the only reason they opened an office in New Delhi. The other reason is to help bring better advances in technology to front of the business. They have been the leader in technology for ten years now.

 

The one thing that Talk Fusion has created, that they are most proud of is; WebRTC. For this bit of technology, they received the 2016 WebRTC Award for the Year. They also received the Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award in 2016. Both of the prestigious awards are given to companies that make major advancements in technology with the way that people remain in contact with others. It was not only just the advances in real time communications that they are most proud of, it is also the instant pay feature that they have created.

 

While performing an interview, Bob Reina, the founder of Talk Fusion goes on to talk about the many advances that they are going to be making by the year 2025. The hope is to create a shift in the way that video marketing is done within the realm of browser to browser opportunities for communicating. With WebRTC, the requirement for internal or even external plugins is helping to ease the comfort of file sharing and streaming video in a smoother transition.

 

Talk Fusion has set a new bar for those who are using WebRTC as a means to communicate amongst each other and how they exchange the information with one another. The hope is to continue making lead advancements in technology for many years.

Battlefront 2 Found to Have Cosmetic Customization Days After EA Claims it Does Not

PC Gamer reports on further dishonesty coming from Electronic Arts, as datamining has now revealed that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has an unused cosmetic customization feature within the game’s files, a revelation that comes just days after the company’s CEO said that no such feature currently exists within the game.

In an interview given on November 28, EA CEO Blake Jorgensen specifically stated that Battlefront 2, at least at this point in time, did not have any form of cosmetic customization. As this was a feature in EA’s first Battlefront game in 2014, many fans had been justifiably confused and upset at its absence in the new installment.

Jorgensen gave the reasoning behind this change, saying that the company did not want to “violate canon”, citing an absurd example of a pink Darth Vader as justification. Though many were quick to point out the illogical reasoning behind this answer, given that the first game had this feature and that the Battlefront games themselves are essentially a “violation of canon” simply by existing, many were shocked to find out just a day later that this feature had been in the game’s files the entire time.

In a YouTube video posted by Redditor uninspired_zebra, the user showcases a cosmetic customization menu with numerous options contained within the PC version of the game. And, rather than simply wait to release the feature in the full game, EA’s statements on the matter seem to suggest that this form of customization was never meant to see the light of day at some point in the future.

Caught in what can only be described as a deliberate lie, this newest bit of controversy comes right on the heels of Battlefront 2’s massive loot box scandal, leading countries like Belgium to call for a ban on loot boxes in all games released in Europe and the stock value of multiple video game publishers to plummet, EA’s in particular losing the company over $3 billion in value.

The company had first taken flack upon the Battlefront 2’s beta release, with players finding the absurd costs necessary to play competitively with other players using the randomize loot boxes matched only by the time investment it would take to do so without spending extra money (approximately 40 hours to unlock characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker). With things only getting worse from there – and quickly – EA and the rest of the games industry has seen massive backlash over what many describe as simulated gambling aimed at children (in the form of the loot box) and dishonesty on the part of the company.

With this newest revelation managing to anger all but the most ardent of EA’s fans, it remains to be seen whether the company can find a way out of this latest PR nightmare.

‘Secret World’ Made Great Again by Team at Funcom

In 2012 there was this little MMORPG that hit the internet. Released by Funcom as the third MMO that they developed, ‘Secret World’ hit the shelves one summer out of nowhere. Fans clamored after the game thanks to the exhaustive story details, interesting quests, and excellent voice acting. However, Secret World would head the direction that so many ambitious MMO’s end up in this day and age: complacency. The title never pushed to a higher level and the game leveled out, never really reaching the heights of its inaugural months. Five years later, fans should be ready to jump back in as Funcom recently re-launched, re-branded, and re-invigorated the title.

Now known as Secret World Legends, Funcom is focusing on giving fans everything that they had hoped for in the initial release. The title is no longer purchase/subscription based and now operates on a free-to-play model like so many other titles. Shifting to free-to-play (FTP) means that the game will see a larger influx of users as the developers try to hone in on what made their title so special, so long ago. Rui Casais, the CEO at Funcom, said, “We always felt that The Secret World was undiscovered.” This line of thinking brought Casais and his team to really analyze what had gone wrong with ‘Secret World’. They saw sales declining, players leaving the game, and the title slowly dying. It was time for a re-invention. Their focus this time was to put the game in as many hands as possible.

In the original Secret World gamers had to play characters without levels or any sort of class system. it was a completely free and open concept that never latched on with gamers. So the developers at Funcom brought levels back as an easy way to get gamers comfortably back into the game. There are also extensive additions to the core gameplay as well as extended quests and new storylines for gamers to check out.

2K Unveils ‘Rise and Fall’ Expansion for Civilization 6

If you are a fan of city-building and nation-fighting, then you are likely intimately familiar with the game Civilization 6. One of the most prolific real-time strategy games of all time, Civ 6 has continually fed its fans with updates and new DLC. Now, it looks like the team at 2K games are giving fans even more of what they want with an expansion pack that unlocks a massive amount of new content. The expansion pack is known as ‘Rise and Fall’ and it showcases more features than AI Gandhi could shake a nuclear bomb at.

Civilization 6 launched last year to critical and commercial acclaim and since then there has been a slew of updates hitting the title. Now, fans are getting locked in for the biggest update yet. 2K released a quote and a trailer showcasing what the ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion is to offer fans saying, “Rise triumphantly from the Dark Age and your next Golden Age will be even stronger — A Heroic age.” Of course, the slightly cheesy writing isn’t what brings people to Civilization, instead, it is the depth of tactics and strategy that the title offers.

With the ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion, fans will have access to an all-new loyalty system that turns your micro-management up another notch. Cities now can show individual loyalty levels to you and that means you have to pay more attention than ever to local politics, harvesting yields and more. Of course, that isn’t the only update. The ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion also brings to life nine unique and new leaders, eight new civilizations, a bevy of new units and wonders as well as all new buildings and districts.

For RTS-degenerates who have fallen in love with Sid Meier’s work, the Civ 6 ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion could be the greatest expansion the genre has offered in recent years. With other companies struggling to balance launch-content and expansion-content, it is nice to see 2K Games get it right.

‘Black Desert Online’ Set for Mobile Release?

There are few gaming experiences more rewarding than logging into a massive sandbox MMORPG and completely setting yourself apart from the rest of the pack. Black Desert Online exploded onto the scene in the West just a year or so ago as one of the most prominent, deep, and exciting sandbox MMORPGs on the market. The genre itself had become stagnant before the release of BDO, thus breathing new life into the ‘sandbox gimmick’. Now, Black Desert Online is taking its deep gameplay mechanics, luscious graphics, and wonderful character progression system to the mobile market. Is it time to be worried or does Black Desert Online have a chance at succeeding in the platform crossover?

With a game like Black Desert Online, it is completely understandable to worry that the title won’t transfer well to handheld devices. With how deep and expansive Black Desert Online is, it makes sense that people would worry about what would actually make the cut into the mobile market. Fortunately, we do know that a few of the most important aspects of the title will be coming to the mobile systems that we game on. The deep character customization and progression system will be ported over to handheld devices along with guilds and guild wars as well as life skills. World bosses will be added but this will come at the cost of several other key aspects of the game. World fields will be ditched and the Awakening System looks like it is being tossed by the wayside.

What originally drew fans to Black Desert Online, to begin with, was the fact that it was a sandbox MMO that looked like a Triple-A title. With incredible graphics and a deep ‘life system’, gamers were able to make themselves whoever they wanted to be. There was no endless grinding for quests. Will the mobile version of the game still hold this same escapist allure? We can’t say yet, but South Korea will find out first when the mobile title releases in January of 2018.
