Hope they have a free weekend welcome back trial. This game had the shortest lifespan of any MMORPG I ever bought, about 2 weeks for me (and someone had given me 5000 gold to mess around with at that.)

No Man's Sky:

Still no clear idea of the actual gameplay. I like what I've *seen* of this game thus far, however I'm far too long in the tooth to have not seen a few smoke and mirrors demos over the years.

Yeah, this has no new footage beyond what we've seen. I think what they're doing is incredibly cool, but there does also have to be a game in there somewhere.

It looks incredibly complex, but if it's just for the PS4 (so far) I can't see gameplay being particularly complicated or straying from high action.

It would be sad to see all that procedural generation be nothing more than an ultra-cool tech demo for a background for a standard shooter where you are searching for upgrades to proceed further towards the galactic core.

As opposed to CNN providing apparently informational stories like "Type Ii Diabetes Tricks" or "Tips for dealing with arthritis" or psoriasis or high blood pressure, whose real purpose is to assign you to salable targeted advertising groups.

Monkey Parking sounds like a good idea, but they went too far advertising to hire people to drive around to take up spots and sell them through the system.

On the other hand I have little sympathy for San Francisco, government or the people who elect them, with rent control and needing a $20 million environmental study to build a new parking structure...and only maybe get to build it.

These are the same officials who make it illegal to be a good samaritan and put a coin in someone's expired meter, proving it's about highway robbery.

You can pause and queue up actions -- sounds like a real tactics game. Normally I see a string of adjectives, "RPG", "tactical", "strategy", "real-time", then along moseys "action", the rest disappear and I read "button-masher".

"Show Based On MMO Game"

Opening scene: A man in light armor runs up and shoots someone point blank in the back 3 times. The victim is slightly wounded and runs away.

Shooter: This gun doesn't effin' kill anything!

Well it entirely depends on whether the copyright has expired or not, right? Anyway, I'm just surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more often.

It is kind of the limiting factor in games. Superhero games which allow general color selection as well as a letter on the chest, well, that's all you need to generate a Superman clone. Red boots, blue tights, red shorts, yellow letter S.

The closer a design system gets to complete freeform, the more cautious they have to be with the inevitable copy of copyrighted works.

City of Heroes had a secret (I think) costume or power code to generate a force field bubble about the hand like a Green Lantern might have. I never figured it out via normal costume or power sets anyway but I did see it a number of times. That plus generic green and black outfit plus capital theta on the chest, boom, Green Lantern.

I gave up hope on any new Star Trek series a while back. They don't want to water down ol' Captain Lens Flare's brand.

That's what terrifies me -- that this would be reboot universe not original. And in either case, more action movie-like, like reboot U, too, than more pensive, true, quality science fiction.

Of course it is Netflix so yappy dramatic interactions are the (cheaper-to-produce) norm. Or maybe they're gonna be the first internet content place to step up to the major league big 4 network investment time.

That's no way to get ahead in the gaming world.

Not the time to lose one's head.

It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.

He'll never be the head of a major gaming corporation.

Is it supposed to be a sequel or a different type of game in this milieu, like a twitchy-leapy type buttonmasher?

"Begging your pardon, sir, but this is a teaser, not a trailer."

Or a rerun of 30 year old Empire and Jedi making-of footage and music.

This is interesting. One of my favorite games in the past was a hybrid RTS-FPS: Battlezone. I'll keep an eye on this.

As soon as I read "FPS-RTS hybrid", I thought of exactly this game too!

I recall being upset the game was fairly FPS-ish rather than me being able to place turrets everywhere and just hide and let them do the work.

I would definitely be interested in a game with a FPS viewpoint, but otherwise a normal RTS where you did little to no shooting directly. The fast and high leaping about the battlefield is also reminiscent of Outland with the wing jumpjet thingie.

The inventory system is very Ultima Onlinelike, where you literally distribute things in a bag manually, including sub-bags (which you can get by picking up your bag off your own dead corpse and putting it inside your own new bag lol).

I attacked a player thinking it was an NPC and then a guard came and slaughtered me with a rude comment. So it did feel hehehe very Ultima Onlinelike.

RUMOR: Is Marvel Canceling Fantastic Four Comics to Hurt Fox's New Movie?

they should just end this war, it hurts the moviegoers.

The comic books can go hang -- I haven't bought one in years, and the last time I did (Fantastic Four) I'm not even sure what was going on. Johnny, who "died", had just come back to life as everybody knew would happen. There was another Galactus attack coming with big buildings floating up into the sky.

Hulk, as usual, didn't even have Hulk in it.

I'm with the bulk of the population now -- these are fun movies.

Perhaps the most inspiring thing at motherjones.com was the ad overlay for a Bently.

as a team of four hunters face off against a single, player-controlled monster. Set on an alien planet in the distant future, players hunt their prey 

I first read that as "as a team of four hundred face off against..." and got briefly excited.

I recall when EverQuest briefly toyed with you being able to take over up to a level 6 monster in newbie areas and go attack players.

Bill Murray in Groundhog Day: "This is new. Anything new is good."

Fast food workers on strike is the reason why staying in school and getting an education for a good paying career is important.

If every collage graduate could step into a well paying job based on their degree, that would be great. But it's not the case, at least here in America. People are struggling, and that means taking whatever job is available, even if it's wildly below what you studied for. People graduate with a shitload of debt (with the hopes of paying it off), only to find they can't get a job in what they studied for.

There's always going to be the bottom of the barrel, true. But school does not guarantee success.


We shouldn't blame business for not providing jobs for every degree. Instead, throw the blame on colleges and loan companies and government, who tells you, "Sure! Borrow away and get that degree. Any degree is useful in and of itself!"

Increasing college costs can be tied to easy loans -- the annual increases are like adding the $2000 sport package to a car loan. @$35/mo. extra, 8% annual increases are palatable.

Speaking of games I won't be touching with a 39 1/2 foot pole before a free, playable demo is available because gameplay was reimagineered by corporate chimpanzees, is a Thief demo available?
