but how many of those 7m register, play it once, and never go back?

I bet there is far less buyers remorse in Exile than Day Z.....

Eli is such a roller coaster. He has 2 settings every week and only 1 can apply. Instead of off or on. He is MVP or "Bench his ass!".

I was glad to see them do well, but Eli was on my fantasy bench....he is my backed for when Brees is on h is BYE....but Brees has been very mediocre....I give up.

I wouldn't mind red-light cameras if they were actually designed for, a safety stand point. But they revenue tools, on the ones I've seen around me the yellows are shorter, and people tend to slam on their breaks the second the light turns yellow, or slow way down when approaching a green light because they're afraid of it'll turn yellow.

Increase the time the light is yellow, and only ticket the people that blatantly run the light. But if they did that I guess they wouldn't be profiting off it.

They were found to not be legal here in Minneapolis. The thing is though, when they had them going, it did cut down on accidents. So maybe it did have the intended effect.

If you don't use a financial penalty, then how are you going to get people to conform? Cities don't run on farts and rainbows, and usually run in the red, so what if the tickets generate "revenue".

There are several other things that generate revenue that a city does that I would rather not pay and have fines imposed on people instead....

It is a problem because when you have fines as a source of revenue, you have an incentive to increase the number of fines. Cities should not be in the business of trying to make people break the law.

In many places where red light cameras were installed, the cities were found to deliberately shorten the yellow light times (below what was legal) afterward to increase the number of violations.

Well, that IS a problem. They weren't shortened here that I noticed.....I wouldn't even think to do that. Put them there, let it do it's thing.

This game better tell me about the wizard and his hunger or close calls with death. It's not Gauntlet without the announcer telling you that your asshole friend just shot the food.

Who, me?

heheh there is actually an announcer that yells at you....

I've felt for a while now all lights at least in a state should have the same length yellows. Some are so fast, they are traps. I'd be up for a federal time for all yellows to be the same length.

How would this happen? There are hundreds of different sizes of intersections.....double intersections RR tracks before intersections, etc etc etc.

But yes the actual gameplay was limited and repetitive.


You just described every single 80s arcade game. Including the one in your avatar. Just sayin'. No better gaming than in the 80s and Gauntlet was damn near at the center, literally when you walked into an arcade. It was either right up front or in the middle where everyone could watch. Love it.

It was all about perfecting a game. Not point A to point B save a million times multiple tries. Rouge likes are about as close as we can get to arcade games.

News Comments > Steam Discovery Update
38. Re: Steam Discovery Update Sep 23, 2014, 21:28 xXBatmanXx
 
Echoing some comments already, but I got to spend a very small amount of time with the update and like what I see so far.

They added in a number of features that are in the firefox addon for steam. Similar to enhanced steam. I like that there are tags as in "in your library" "in your wishlist" etc. That is nice.

I also like that I was suggested some things that I didn't even know about. I heavily rely on the Friend Activity page to see what other people buy, put in their wishlist, and what games the are playing and getting cheevos.

For the most part this is a step in the right direction. People that complain here about steam just love to complain period. Nothing will make them happy.

I would like to be able to order my games by when they were added to my library. I have almost 250 games, so when I get a new humble bundle, it can be a bit hard to find them.

Late to the party here, but if you go to your library, you can create custom groups. Hope that helps.

2. Re: Gauntlet Released Sep 23, 2014, 21:17 xXBatmanXx
 
I did. It is a very respectfully done reimage of the game. I played the first "floor", died about 4-5 times.

What is different.
-Health doesn't constantly go down (I am on Normal though)
-You have 4-6 different attacks
-There are "floors", not rooms with ward points, so far there is a definite start and finish to each "floor" (think diablo)
-You level up passive skills
-You can "buy" active perks and equip 2

That is a quickie. I replayed the first floor as I wanted to try a few things out, as I accidently used a key to unlock a wall when I was fighting a bad guy, which locked me out of a treasure room.

I really like it in the 30 minutes I played. I can see how if you don't play with friends you could have a grifer or someone who just runs around and collects gold while you fight everything. Or wastes keys, etc.

Anyway. We will see what the next few weeks brings with updates, etc. For $15.00 I am very happy with it. So far it is impressive visually and mechanically.

I am using a mouse and kb. There is an option to use a controller, but I don't think I will. I like how I can quickly move the aim point around where a controller wouldn't be as precise or quick.

Anywhoo. I hope more people pick it up.

Kids who died from flu last season: Most skipped vaccine.

Wonder how many people got paralyzed from the flu vaccine last season.

None. It doesn't do anything. I feel so sorry for the kids of people who don't get inoculations.....doesn't cause anything. ADD and all that other stuff is in place WAY before any shots are given.

Let me reiterate, I have been lurking here for 10 or so years... Blues has a Forum? Isn't every news post a new forum topic, essentially?

Yes, but they basically vanish after two days, (or a week if it's large enough to be in the popular threads category) and our thinking at the time was that this caused certain hotly debated topics to keep spilling over from comment section to another, like the current #gamergate (my apologies for using that terrible term) discussion is doing.

So we figured that if we had a forum, we'd all just take that kind of stuff to the forum so we didn't all keep repeating the same points in 5 different comments sections.

It never really happened, unfortunately, so Frans/Blue did quite a bit of work for little pay-off. Sorry about that, Blue.

Well, I did create some of those threads....and I actually reference some of them for MODS, etc.....hope others get use out of them as well...
