I get the development cycle of the game versus the film, and so on. However, that doesn't explain why the game designers didn't incorporate female fighters and other characters. Are you telling me the game designers needed to see the final movie script in order to realize that, hey, having female characters is a thing we can do?
September game lacks ties to Fury Road, particularly car-driving, gun-toting women.

It's not the designers who likely decided to not have female characters, it's probably the producers.  Game designers actually have limited control over larger issues like which characters get included or get cut.

The most expensive part of making a game is the art assets, particularly characters.  Characters require their own unique models, textures (often multiple layers), skeletons, rigging, and animations.  These are not easy to create to sufficient quality these days.  Trying to take shortcuts leads to suboptimal results; using Max's skeleton, rigging, and/or animation for Furiosa would probably be laughably bad.

And, movie games have pretty firm deadlines given that they get stale if they are released too long after the movie.  Anything added means that something else gets removed to keep the game on schedule.  So, what do you take out to put female characters in?  Or are you in favor of the "make them work more than 80 hour weeks for my entertainment" option?

As the article hints, in this age of DLC I wouldn't be surprised to see female characters come out after launch.  Assuming the game is reasonably successful.

Pulled into a lovely May snowscape in Flagstaff, AZ this morning, just as the sun came over the mountains.

Enjoying the +Mailbird email client, however one thing I noticed is that when I compose a message or reply to one, the fonts in the body of the message look really bad. They're blurred or partly light, partly dark, or otherwise distorted. I can fool around with the window size until it looks better, but I'm not sure what it causing it in the first place. I don't see anything in the options to make the fonts better. Sometimes happens in the reading pane as well.

Anyone use this program? Any ideas from the people at Mailbird?

Hi Robert, try this:

1) Go to Mailbird menu top left
2) Options
3) Advanced tab
4) Check "Force software rendering" AND "Disable DirectWrite"
5) Restart Mailbird

the blurriness should be fixed then :)

A posting of actresses playing female service members as a way to honor women in the armed forces may be the dumbest thing I've seen today.
 
God bless America and all of its beautiful women. Happy Memorial Day.
Thank you to all of those who have fought to keep this country safe and thank you to these women for making it look good. Happy Memorial Day.

I am imaging Tuna yelling back toward the kitchen, "Hello, people... out of popcorn here! Need more popcorn!"

So, the big question - when does this change?

Nice store, but the checkout experience is terrible. They're always understaffed and haven't caught up to the competition in terms of having a self-checkout option.

Horrible service. They gouge you any chance they get. You don't get anywhere close to the speed you're paying for. If you have any option other than Suddenlink under consideration in Flagstaff, take it.

An order received from Tiger's Take Out was inedible, and the food was not what was represented. Granted, the restaurant messed that up. Owner said the restaurant had a bad history with them and promised a refund. The refund never happened and now Tiger's Take Out is unresponsive to phone calls and email messages.
