    They should make an Amazonland MMO. It would be a social MMO where you can customize your avatar and visit different stores. There could be book stores, clothing stores, electronics, home goods - all the categories listed on Amazon. When you purchase something "in-game," you also purchase it in real life! It could be like a social shopping experience with places to hang out and chat with other shoppers, try on clothes, browse products to scale, etc.

    They should also make a game that is a part of Twitch for the streamer to play with their chat or the chat to play with each other. For example, something where the chat enters text commands to control characters in a game to fight against the streamer. It could be like Attack on Titan, where the streamer is the titan and chat controls a bunch of small soldiers trying to swarm him.

    They really should have acquired a major studio, and I thought they were about to... but Microsoft grabbed Besheda... which would have been a perfect fit (for Middle Earth MMO and other games).

    Totally agree with you here, they could not have possibly have done any worse than they already have buying an Indie studio and just funded their game, and I mean, legit, they could not have done worse even if they bought a massive train wreck like, Soulbound.
    I really wish I could go into more detail.  I won't.  I'll be screwed.  Think of the bright game hires being assimilated by the Borg (from StarTrek Next Generation)

    And then there's the internal production drama that led them to cut ties with the actor playing Alex who will either be replaced or killed off for season 6.
    Noooooooo.... :(
    Yeah I liked him too. But apparently he has issues with.... personal boundaries.
    Meh... As long Amos is on the show I'm watching
    They cannot kill him off. He is pretty important in the books. If they intend to do all 9 of them. Well the last one should be out this year. I've read till Tiamat's Wrath and they will replace him. What they did though in previous books is amalgamate a character like Bull into Drummer. Michio Pa too.

    Also Amazon rescued "The Expanse" SyFy cut it after season 3 , we have season 4 and 5 thanks to Amazon. They must do Babylon's Ashes damn my favourite books were Nemesis Games and Babylon's Ashes.
    Nope. The series will end on 6th season. It's already announced
    Really nooooooo!

    The writers are saying it is just a pause. A natural one between book 6 and 7 so between season 6 and 7. So I think they get another company to take over from Amazon.

    The Expanse authors say the show’s only on pause, not canceled, after season 6

    Many sides will say many things... I'll just listen to producers and directors since they actually have the saying over those things - not the writters. And we are already off rails so I'll leave this conversation for another time.

    As if any kind of pay cut would hurt Jeff Bezos I mean he only made like what 24 billion in 2020. Or better yet that he was being removed because amazon did not make enough cash last year :p :smiley:

    The goal since 2015 was to increase the sales of Amazon Web Services and they succeeded. Taking a risk by investing 2 billion over the years on six game titles is rather minor considering what they made just last year alone.

    Well I guess we know the answer to that now. Spoiler tag for those whoa have not yet seen episode 10;

    I actually think that the kill off idea was a better solution than recasting, It'd be hard for me to accept a new actor as Alex after 5 seasons.
    They actually went back and reshot some scenes of episode 10 after the decision to part ways with the actor was made.
    Ty Frank and Daniel Abrahan, collectively know as James S. A. Corey, the authors of the books are also screenwriters for the show so I'm sure they'll come up with a good way to get the important plot tasks that Alex does in the books done by whoever the replacement pilot is or some other way.
    I sure hope someone (Netflix?) picks up seasons 7 - 9 though.

    Spoiler Alert!!

    There is always going to be a difficulty replacing an actor but to me this is almost like punishing a fictional character for what the real life actor did. I say did, there was no court case, an independent company decided if the allegations were true, so to me they remain allegations. Also the story seems to be punished for this, they even redid some old scenes to edit him out, in a SF series were explaining a change of face should not have been hard.

    Kind of hard to ignore 40+ allegations though. No company wants to be saddled with the consequences of not addressing that even if they carry out internal investigations to determine them. Plus none of it was criminal just very, very inappropriate since it involved fans younger than 18.

    The consequences of a public trial would be far worse for the actor. I'm sure they can if they really wanted brought civil action against him. May be it was kinder to him this way. Having people testify while giving him the chance to face his accuser will also give the accuser the chance to be heard and all the details will go on record.
