again, its chemical - not magnetic fields

injuries and the process of healing itself are surrounded by biological chemical reactions

It might be for cancer and other such things, but not everything is. For example, seizure-prone people have aid dogs that will basically warn them if they are about to have a seizure, and they train those dogs by emitting electrical fields from a machine that precisely match the one from the owner who has the seizures.

Anyway, however they do it, it's amazing.

Well, Viacom's viewers are waaaaay down, so correspondingly they get way less ad money, so obviously their response is "Shit, hike fees!"

Fuck it, drop Viacom. It produces nothing but garbage anyway.

I'm not sure it was one of the biggest clusterfucks ever, since it has actually sold pretty well since it launched. It's sort of a confusing system since many of the gripes about it are actually legitimate, but it still seems to do just fine anyway.

You need to see that in context, though. The 360 was the big winner of its cycle (at least until all the way late when the PS3 started getting some ground back), and the xbone is getting trounced quite handily by the PS4.

I doubt many people at MS are happy about how the bone is doing.

As for CFs, SimCity. THAT was a CF.

EA and clusterfucks are becoming quite the cozy bedfellows...


They should just change their name to CFA.

Dog Detects Cancer in Owner's Body Before Medical Scans, Saves Life.

That's amazing, and I've read similar stories before. I wonder how the dog "knows" that the cancer is bad? Why is it bad and not just different? Truly a mystery.

it smells like a deadly disease to them.. actually i knew a guy who smelled his own throat cancer, which was what prompted him to go the doctor in the first place, said it smelled like rotting flesh/garbage

dogs noses are many orders of magnitude more powerful than any human sense organ - they perceive "odors" on a whole other level than just a "smell"

Right, dogs noses super powerful. I'm just curious why the dog interpreted that smell as "bad." The dogs I grew up with would roll in a rotting animal of they found one.

I don't know if it's the particular smell, to be honest. They just seem to know when someone (or something, like another dog) is injured. When my wife had hurt her leg (on the inside), my dogs were sniffing it and licking it. My girl dog tore her ACL, and her brother would lick it and sniff it.

Then, when my boy dog had seemed to injure his leg, but we weren't sure, my cat came and sniffed it. They just somehow seem to know that it's not right. Maybe it's a magnetic field thing?

Wow, 25 bucks, really?

I'll buy it if it's 5.
Come on the original version is $5 in stores.

$15-20 for the upgrade is a thank you.

No, that's a rip-off. It's a twelve year old game that a graphics guy did two days of work on.

Hey, if you want to pay 20 bucks, more power to you, but I'm not buying twelve year old games for 20 bucks.

With each and every update this kid just reaffirms my belief that he's a genius. The Kickstarter money has already paid for itself just watching this kid work, the game is a bonus.

This game's economy i have a feeling is going to destroy Egosoft forever.

Egosoft needs no help in destroying themselves.

The only thing that kinda puzzles me is how do you do a true supply and demand economy when you, essentially, simulate an infinite universe?

Like any new MMO, I see people in chat complaining about things not "being like WoW".

I find the gaming experience a lot more enjoyable by creating a new tab naming it "Quiet" and unchecking "Yell" and "Zone".

The day someone showed me how to do that in GW2 was an ultra-blessed day

True, but they see those five million as a good benchmark to gauge market size and interest.

But is it really? Anyone who likes MMOs basically signs up for just about every beta around, because why not? You get to try new MMO # 12345 for free and see if you like it, even if you really very little interest in it.

Most betas get millions of "interested" people, and I'm pretty sure it's just the same group of millions that like MMOs and just want to try them all out.

My only real criticism so far is the FOV...seriously, do the developers even play videogames?!

Yes, but they play them on shitty consoles that can't handle a higher FOV at a decent resolution...

Though I'd be surprised if the PS4 can't just run this at 90FOV @ 1080p with a decent framerate, because visually it really isn't all that spectacular.

With 5 million people registered for beta, itís clear that a large number of fans are eager to jump online and experience everything the game has to offer play an MMO for free to see if it's any good.

Let us know how many people subscribe after their first month is over.

Developer of GameRanger here.

Hate seeing this happen. I'm trying to reach out to all affected developers and publishers to see if I can help. Not interested in making anything out of this, just don't want to see multiplayer games die.

Your service is awesome, Scott. Keep up the great work.

GameSpy. Its use not needed in a world where game companies want to control everything.

No user run dedicated servers. No toolkits for modding. Servers shut down a year after game launch. DRM. You name it.

Welcome to the future.
And all we have to blame is the gamers themselves who voted with their money and didn't care that it happened.

Amen.
