I always wonder why they do not share more details on those performance increase claims.

Because then everyone would see that they're pretty much bogus, duh!

Eh, I agree it's probably not rushed, but prequel story, featuring the villain everyone loved, done by a different studio, four characters with names that sound rather like the four from BL2.

Pretty much screams "Let's milk this franchise for all its worth!" to me.

On a note, South Park does not require UPlay either, Ubisoft seems to finally get the hint that Steam + UPlay is not necessary and keeps UPlay off Steam games

South Park wasn't a first-party title. (Ie, it wasn't developed by a Ubisoft studio.) I wouldn't really get my hopes up that Ubi will stop mandating Uplay...

There's quite a bit of choppiness in the videos for the game so I expect it to run like crap even on recommended. Maybe those videos were made on consoles. Hopefully it won't be as bad as X-Rebirth.

I wouldn't worry about that. You can say what you want about Ubisoft's games, but they make very good PC ports. *knocks frantically on every piece of wood in the vicinity*
I would be shocked (SHOCKED, Cotton! SHOCKED!) if they released a turd like X:Rebirth.

The link is to an incredibly old post (from 2010). This seems to be the most current location for info on this mod:

One big reason we lack internet competition: The government tries its hardest to guarantee and continue the current status quo/monopolies the big telcos and cablecos have over their markets.

While I applaud the idea, how is that underpowered piece of crap going to emulate a 360? There just doesn't seem to be enough sheer raw power to do it (properly.)

"Hey, with your game purchase comes 30 days of free game time. However, we do put an authorization charge on your bank account to make sure you can actually afford the 15 dollar fee... that you don't owe us until next month.

"Don't worry, it's totally legit!"


Usually this authorization hold lasts a short period of time before being removed. It can vary from bank to bank.

Most banks leave that on there for three frikkin days.

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.

Nooooo. You mean Tom Wheeler, the FCC chairman who used to be the cablecos' biggest lobbyist is NOT going to tackle something that would be detrimental to said cablecos? WHOWOULDATHUNKIT?

Fuck you, Tom Wheeler. You're just as useless a piece of shit as that fucking assbag Genachowski was.

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
