So... that's why we haven't gotten any updates for the DF Action game in a while?
They have been doing a main video update (Episode) about once a month and it hasn't been quite a month since the last one. It would be nice to see another sidequest video though..

Honestly, I don't know what the hold up was... I thought the game was supposed to be out in October... but apparently it has been delayed.
It was supposed to be in October when the plan was to have a few people at DF make a short adventure game with the ~$400k they were originally asking for. But once they saw how many backers supported them and the millions they gave for the project, Tim decided to get more DF folks to make a bigger and better adventure game which he said would take longer. If you look at the tiers added later, the delivery date for those show May 2013.

Ordered Far Cry 3 for 20,- at WOWHD.com. I'm repeating myself here for people who've heard me say it before, though.
Hmm, that's pretty good! I'll have to check them out..

Yeah, but a 250GB SSD for $170 and a free copy of FC3 isn't a bad deal! ..although I have no idea what a TLC nand is.

I would consider it but I recently bought a 256GB SSD.

...but I can't see this being designed AROUND single player since adding a single player campaign was a stretch goal, not part of the original project.

Well fuuuck me. Single player was a stretch goal?
I'm pretty sure SP was included to begin with.. The stretch goals have just increased the number of missions and such.

All I know is that I have always updated Windows to the latest version almost immediately upon availability. All the way from Windows 95 to Windows 7. With Windows 8 however - no thanks mate!
So you actually bought WinME and Vista?

The single player / squadron 42 aspect of the game is suppose to be very similar to past Wing Commander games. Now that they've reached the $5M stretch goal there will be 50 missions (branching) in the campaign. That for me is worth the price of admission regardless of how the persistent universe turns out.
Yeah, that is why I kept my early adopter backing of $30 (I was going to back out if it didn't look better by now). At the KS launch it didn't sound like the SP campaign would be much, but now that it has raised so much money and the SP has been increased to 50 levels, I feel my $30 will be well spent. I also added another $25 for a shirt since they are pretty nice looking.

Ever heard the expression "Never sell property that could be leased"? Fox does a similar thing with IP, they don't sell a lot of it compared to other studios. It usually has to be a real money pit for them to divest it.
Yeah but it sucks because that was one of the few tv shows I actually liked! Dang Fox..

Hmmmm... You know, it occurs to me I could easily get the DVDs from Netflix. I remember there was an issue with either the airing of the shows or the DVDs being "out of order". What's the scoop on that?
I believe the DVDs are in correct order. It was Fox that decided to change the order of the series on tv because they thought it would get more people into the show by starting it with some later episodes.. but of course it didn't.

I heard that later SyFy wanted to buy the rights to the show from Fox after the series was cancelled but for some reason they didn't want to and they never did anything else with it except for that movie.
Mr. Tact wrote on Nov 15, 2012, 09:58:
Well if they do, it would be one of the few things I had interest in which was actually available for streaming from them. That's why I'm on DVD service only with them.
Me too.. but also cause I like getting the Bluray.

I'm right there with you, and I've read more of it than I have watched. Amazingly I haven't watched Firefly. Many have told me I should, but I never got around to it, and now I figure there is no way it can match the build up -- so my desire to watch it is lessened.
I thought Firefly was great! I enjoyed it more than many other sci-fi shows I've seen. It had just the right amount of space cowboy with a little humor. I wish Fox had sold the rights to the show to SciFi (or SyFy?) so that they could have continued the series and probably would have done a much better job of it.
nin wrote on Nov 15, 2012, 09:34:
I've never been a fan of the idea of a space western, but found Firefly very enjoyable. And while I may be in the minority for suggesting it, skip the movie and pretend it didn't happen.
Yeah, I didn't like the movie as much as the series either but it wasn't bad..

Yeah, they should just make a CGI movie about the Starcraft universe for theaters.

Why don't they sell the PC version for $50 like they used to? Especially for a downloadable copy. It used to be only console games that sold for $60 new.

Yes the Episodes can be played as SP as well.
Cool, thanks! I'll probably wait and get all 10 episodes together once they're all released since I have a lot of other games to play still.. including the main Halo 4 campaign... although I'm sure it's not very long.

Does anyone know if the Spartan Ops episodes can be played single-player? Everywhere I've looked it says they are multiplayer co-op missions, but I hope they can be played SP too..

46. Re: Win8 Exclusive DirectX 11.1? Nov 12, 2012, 15:58 John
 
Yeah, or just install something like StartIsBack for Win8 and you can bypass the Metro Start screen completely. At first I didn't like Win8 either because of the whole Metro thing, but once I found that it is basically just another desktop window which can be bypassed, I didn't mind it so much.

Get StartIsBack instead would be my suggestion - cheaper, uses the old native Start Menu code they had to leave in so jumplists could work and you won't be supporting crazy ass weirdo Brad as an added bonus
Cool, I'll check that out! I'm currently testing Win8 on a dual-boot setup and having the old start menu will make it much better.
