Remembering all the lies, Maxis employees willingly told us before and after the release of Sim Shitty ... my sympathy for them losing their jobs is limited.

You can only resist the Borg mind implants for so long...

The all caps let you know it's a serious title.

So was Ground Zeroes any good? I thought that was the really short sort of sub-game thing?

20-25 GB patch. Hahahahahaha. Did you guys change the entire fucking game world??

Edit :
Darks wrote on Mar 4, 2015, 13:48:
The patch is actually only a little over 5 GB in size, once expanded its takes up around 20 to 25 GB.

That seems more reasonable.

Out on May 5th? Wow, that came out of nowhere. So is this DLC or a stand-alone game?

And Fallout 4? Still missing...

Also, what do they mean by mouselook?? I already look around with the mouse...

You'll be able to pan the camera around without having to hold down the right mouse button. (Ie, The Quickest Way To Get RSI.)

Presumably it'll be a toggle. One state allows mouselook and the other allows clicking and interacting.

The dev-team behind the Trine series are awesome.

Yes, they are. They've made very good and fun games, and are excellent with supporting them. Definitely worth shelling out some money to support these guys.

So what really was the point of the $19 fee? It's not as if Epic was dying for that 108 bucks a year...

Interesting.

I wonder if this is something they developed for FO4 and decided to test it out on Skyrim..


That seems pretty likely, yeah. Otherwise I'm not sure why they'd go through the bother of updating Skyrim more than a year after they said they were done with it.

"Using a SSD? This news will make you want to backup right now"

Testing doesn't support this theory...

Google "techreport ssd endurance test two petabytes"

That's a very small sample endurance test. What this article is saying is "SSDs can break!" Well, duh. HDs break too, and your odds of recovering data are really no better or worse.

That said, we've been having issues with Intel SSDs at work, where from one moment to the next, the drive craters and only reports 8 bytes of available space. All data on it is completely lost (at least to the meager tools we have available.) It's happened about 3 or 4 times now in the last six months or so.

If it interacts with your room (from what I can gather), shouldn't it more accurately be called AR rather than VR?

It definitely seems as if every tech manufacturer is ready to forget about 3D and jump on the next bandwagon.

slow day at blues

Thanks for the Black Sails recommendation.
The first two episodes were great, I'm looking forward to watching the rest.
With AMC, HBO, and now Starz I guess there's a lot of good TV to watch. I still have season 4 of Hell on Wheels to watch too.

season 2 of black sails, man... you'll remember i said this, when you see it.. its a slow build, but then..

its ... man its great

What does it show on? What channel, I mean?

No, I haven't used Unbox in a while.

I think you need to update in order to get the version that basically allows you to bypass the DRM in it. That's what the article seems to imply anyway:

Update the Amazon Unbox application to the latest version. This version includes a one-time license conversion that will make your videos available within Windows Media Player. Open the Unbox application and there will be an "Upgrade" notification you can use to do this. You can also click the "Settings" option in the Unbox menu and select "Check for Amazon Unbox Upgrades."

I agree, however, that it's still horseshit.

That article was from Feb. 25th. I've use Unbox to download purchases and didn't get an email. This is a shitty move Amazon, unless this new version strips the DRM out, you'll be unable to play your purchased videos if you ever re-install Windows or copy them to a new PC.

Did you upgrade unbox to the latest version? If so, talk to a CSR.

I only own one thing on Amazon worth $10, so it's not a huge deal to me, but it's still shitty because I actually bought it to view offline before I realized I had to use that crappy unbox bullshit.

Since they can't decide who owns it, sounds like we're all clear to pirate the hell out of it. I bet re-releasing it would get someone to find the paperwork.

I still have both games, but I've never been able to get them to work anymore. The first NOLF stops working in the third or fourth cutscene because Kate's character never gets drawn and thus for whatever reason the entire cutscene just sits there waiting, and the second one would always fail to launch with some weird-ass .dll error.
