News Comments > Dwarf Fortress Update This Week; How to Play in 3D
7. Re: Out of the Blue Jul 7, 2014, 12:49 Rigs
 
I've tried so many times to get into this and...can't. I dunno what it is but I just can't concentrate on it. The fact that it looks like utter shit doesn't bother me as much. I'm pretty sick of Minecraft's blocks-everything too (which is why the new 'No blocks/cubes' mod is such a God-send there) but this just...it's just too much. My mind is screaming at me, 'It's Two Thousand FUCKING Fourteen! C'mon!'

News Comments > Hello Games "Would Like" to Bring No Man's Sky to PCs
41. Re: Out of the Blue Jun 25, 2014, 21:32 Rigs
 
I understand the disappointment in the possibility of it not coming to PC but nothing has been announced that says it definitely won't. Just not at first. Still, I can't understand the mentality that these things can't exist in the same world at the same time. Once it was known that it wasn't coming to PC right away, all of a sudden the comments on how it's not as good as Elite start. Why does it have to be a competition? Elite has it's strengths as does NMS and SC. They can exist concurrently without having to battle for hierarchy. In all honestly, it really sounds that it's more of a 'defense mechanism' for some of you when you find out that it's not going to be on your preferred platform. Do I wish NMS was coming to PC? You bet your ass I do! But I'm not going to put the PS4 down and call NMS shit because it's not on my preferred gaming device...This is the rebirth (ugh...no pun intended) of the space-sim genre - BE HAPPY ABOUT IT! Hope it sells gangbusters! Hell, buy it even if you don't have a PS4 to show you support space-sims!

Neither. The ego's of each would become so large they'd crush each other and endanger the whole world.

'It is with excitement that we announce the Battlefield Hardline beta will continue for an additional week, ending on Thursday, June 26th at 12:00PM PST.'

Translation: 'Please play our game! Please, please, please! I have a family and mortgage to support, not to mention the BMW I got when everyone bought the last version of Battlefield 3 - Battlefield 4. We promise we'll try harder this time! Really, really promise! Pinky swear! Scouts honor! Just buy it! I don't care what you do with it after that but please buy it!...Please!'

Ok, call me an idiot (shut up!), but I don't get this whole 'on-disc DLC' being available in a few weeks...it's already on the disc! How can it not be available? What the hell is on the disc then?!

The DLC is a bonus for buying the more expensive boxed edition rather than the digital edition. Gamestop and BB tend to freak these days if there's not something special about the boxed editions of games to make customers want to come to them instead of downloading it.

I know all that, I'm wondering why it's not available right away? I mean, it's on the disc already, why would the customer have to wait until some arbitrary time to use something that is already included in the product, just not 'available'? That's just totally stupid. I realize this was a thing with Capcom titles too and I just don't see the logic behind it, why consumers would actually find that appealing and a buying point...

You know, I can see both sides to this and the way I see it is this...he should just ignore it, all of it. Do his thing, make the best game he can (which, truthfully, is more than most of us here can do) and be happy with that. Most vets here grow tired of the constant back and forth punch/counter-punch, at least after the first couple anyway ...the naysayers will always be there, much like school bullies, you just have to learn to ignore them. Eventually, even if it takes decades, it will become just another legend in PC history, much like the original BC3000AD. He can't change the past, none of us can. What's been done has been done. But he can change how he reacts to it's mentioning or projection on current projects. If he took the high road and said something like, 'Cmon, man, that's old news and over with.' People would grow sick of hearing it every time. It's a funny laugh to bring up in every thread but that's all it is or should be and eventually, God willing, will be forgotten...

EDIT: And seriously, after viewing the mess over at PC Gamer and then the STEAM forums of the side app for this game, 'Tactics', it seems like the overall sentiment is this: 'If the dev would've kept his mouth shut and not acted like a 4 year old, I would have put money down'. Just leave it alone, Derek! You're your own worst enemy here now. Just shut your mouth, do your dev thing and let the game stand on it's own merits. Stop trying to micromanage the PR, it's not your strong suit, obviously...

Why? I could care less about "Doctor" Smart. People want to give him money that's their damage. Although the flamewars with him/about him on Usenet back in the Wild West days were legendary and mightily entertaining.

Them were some EPIC days, let me tell you! Holy hot damn, did I get endless satisfaction from reading hours worth of pissing contests and almost investigative documentary level peaks into his supposed credentials and references (or lack there of, as it were)...every week/month was something different. And then the SA Goons got involved and the shit hit the fan...good times...good times...

I'm still waiting for my pre-order refund for Desktop Commander, that shit looked HOT! Surprised EA or Ubisoft have never tried to pickup on the revolutionary concept...

Obligatory Desktop Commander link, at least one in every DS thread!

I propose that anyone that is the third one to say his name gets instabanned for two weeks to sit in the corner and think about what they've done!

I have no doubt whatsoever that he lurks in these halls and watches. He's admitted on several occasions that he Google's his name on a daily basis to see anything new. He's here, make no mistake...

I've seen a lot of comments about how HALO was supposed to be this revolutionary shooter and 're-invent' the genre...blah blah blah...and that it was just another tired FPS. And you'd be right, but for one thing: the story. To me, playing HALO isn't about playing a shooter or what new shooter mechanics it brings to the table. No, I'm interested in the story and that's something that HALO does damn good, especially REACH and HALO4. I've read nearly all of the novels (except for the latest ones) and when playing, I feel like I'm watching a interactive movie version of the novels. And for a game to be able to do that, consistently, over many iterations, is pretty revolutionary in my book (no pun intended)...You keep your FPS, I'm perfectly happy playing my novel...

Can you Americans hurry up and finish your summer already, go on, move your fall forward, you know you want too!

After the winter we had in NA? No chance in hell! Much as I want this I'm more than content for fall to be delayed as long as possible this year. We're still thawing out and need the heat!

What's this winter you speak of? Must be something we don't get here in the Caribbean. Evilgrin

*Looks outside to thermometer* - 82F at 10:15pm...fuuuuck me! And it's only the middle of June?! Crying

I'm with nin on the whole open-world thing, I'm a total addict! Minecraft, GTA-SA/4/5, Oblivion/Skyrim, JustCause, ETS2, DriverSanFran...anything I can get my hands on, and if it's in space, all the better!

The one thing I'm really looking forward to and hope they implement soon is real dynamic weather and cloud formation. None of this skybox/parallax bullshit. Real, honest to god dynamic clouds with dynamic storms. I was just thinking about this tonight how it would be awesome if *R somehow implemented a big storm, like a hurricane, to hit SA/LS during the game day, like with the occasional storms and rain/lightning, but more severe. Maybe have radio warnings and reports, road closures, storm surge that floods the beach and shore areas and then have the Army/National Guard come out to police the area, giving you the opportunity to plan heists based on the weather forecast. Wouldn't that kick ass?! Everyone evacuating so you lay low somewhere and hide until everyone is gone and then do a heist/robbery during the storm? That would rock! Or maybe severe thunderstorms and tornadoes? Again, with warnings over the radio and sirens blaring. (Yes, I'm a weather fanatic, too!)

I've been waiting a long time for a weather-related game to come out. Maybe an updated SimEarth? Where you can see the impact of multiple hurricane strikes on a region over a period of years or centuries? Watch a storm like the one in HALO: REACH form dynamically from birth to dissipation? *shivers*

Man, I wish (...I wish I was little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her, I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat, And a six-four 'pala...)

So are you soccer fans excited about the world cup? Punch

A month of football? You bet!

Even as an American and a (former) fan of American football (no time to watch sports these days), I have to admit that European football has the better claim to the name "football." I've always felt that American football should be called something else, given that it's barely played with the feet at all. I have no idea what that might be, but I've always felt it has been misnamed.

Well, let's look at this another way for a second...we have baseball (which involves bases and a ball, doesn't say anything about the players or what they do to or use for, the ball) and basketball (same thing, nothing about the players POV on the sport). Then we have golf, which...I have no idea how that pertains to anything about the sport itself...and hockey, which, again, has no clues as to what the sport is about. In the end, it's two one way, two the other. (Without any mention of tennis, because, let's face it, who the fuck watches tennis in this country?)

So, really, soccer could be a legit name based on previous game names in the U.S.. But if you look at football, then it becomes somewhat of am anomaly. BASEball involves bases, BASKETball involves baskets (hoops, whatever). If we were to keep the same naming convention then, football would be better off being called TURFball or ENDZONEball, or possibly just ZONEball, which isn't so bad. GOALball is also somewhat of a possibility, along with HELMETball or RECEIVERball.

Given all that, maybe it's just better to leave it as it is and just deal with it...
