I'd sort of like to know what combat looks like, but I can wait.

You'd have to no matter what, as I'm pretty sure the preview I read for this said that ship combat isn't in the alpha.

Your ROI is supposed to be that you get the game cheaper. Maybe someone forgot to tell Brad.

However, even so, this game isn't even in alpha yet, and it's already being sold?

News Comments > Dead Space Free on Origin
29. Re: Dead Space Free on Origin Mar 27, 2014, 23:28 Creston
 
Kudos where kudos are due, that's a cool move by EA.

As for Origin, it works, but that's really about it. The biggest issue it's got is that there is just no way to port something between computers, without essentially doing installer hacks and praying it works.

This is what... the third year that Origin exists? And still they ignore this fairly simple, yet often requested feature.

Shit, somebody rolls up in a Lexus with just two totally hot chicks, I'd sell.

For 2 bn, he could roll up on a moped with a 300lb drag queen...

It's good to see you have standards, man.

It's the new American dream: Come up with a great idea and sell it to some idiot before everyone realizes that there is no way in hell to monetize it.

I think the Oculus will sell (probably fewer units with FB behind it), but there is no way in hell they'll ever make even half of that 2B investment back.

And FB's investors know it too.

They want to sell the unit for cost? Uh-oh... so what are they going to shove in there to make money for them?
You ever been to facebook? Ads. Duh.

Yeah, that's what I'm worried about too.

Oculus VR "never intended to sell the company".

They cut that quote off too early.

"We never intended to sell the company, but one day Zuck rolls up in his Lambo stretch limo with a dozen totally hot chicks, and the next thing we know we're doing lines of coke off their naked bodies. Zuck says, 'Boys, this can be your life if you sell out to me.' and in three days the deal was done!"

Shit, somebody rolls up in a Lexus with just two totally hot chicks, I'd sell.

And can I just say, holy crap for that 3d printed skull. I can't even fathom what such an operation entails. I guess cutting away half of the skull, putting half the 3D printed on in place, and then repeating?

23 hours of surgery... incredible.
The video actually shows the her skulless head.

I don't watch surgery videos. That shit makes me queasy.

Or treat it as a lesson as what can happen with kick starting.

If some small outfit is pitching something and if it hits it big, expect a company to buy them out.

I don't have that much of an issue with them being bought out. As others have pointed out, shit, few people would say no to 2 billion dollars. I do have an issue with them selling out before they actually delivered a finished product to their backers.

And, obviously, I have a problem with the shitheap that bought them.

In any case, there are large amounts of people pissed over it, and many of those will probably unjustly use that as a smear against Kickstarter, and that REALLY pisses me off.

Thanks for putting a huge dent into KS confidence, Palmer, you fucking tool.

Maybe you can laugh at it while sipping tea with Mark Zuckerberg.

He's now a 21 year old billionaire. (well, not quite, but likely very, very close.)
I can't hate him too much for that.

I mean, I hate him for being a 21 year old billionaire, but that's neither here nor there.

Maybe he'll buy the Cubs and make them a respectable team again.

That reminds me of that wonderful UO expansion that was put in stores and got sold for real money, and the only thing in the box was a note saying "Yeah, it's not actually ready yet. But as soon as it will be, you'll get it!"

And yep, it was EA publishing that. Gosh, it is SO HARD to see why people hate EA so much?

I just wish they'd announce 5, for the pc and ps4 both. Even if it was November or December, I'd at least have it to look forward to.


I know. I've been wanting to replay it, but I keep postponing it because I hope it'll be out on PC soon...

Well, now I feel kind of silly. What on earth made me think blues posters would have anything approaching a sense of perspective?

People disagree with you, so then it's back to the old "Well, you guys are just too dumb to understand/have no perspective" mantra?

You must be a lot of fun to talk to in real life.

Personally I don't give a crap whether they ban cheaters or put them in the shithead pool, but the idea of sad little bitches playing in the shithead pool and getting blatantly murdered over and over again by someone with a better aimbot is immensely satisfying, somehow.

Cliffy on Oculus Acquisition:
http://dudehugespeaks.tumblr.com/post/80832803371

He makes decent points, though bringing up the Instagram buyout and saying "See? That worked fine! Oculus will work just fine too!" is laughable. Instagram was in many ways a refined version of Facebook. What exactly do Facebook and Oculus have in common?

And Multi-billion users interested in the Oculus? Yes, because the large majority of Facebook's users are the kind of people who are going to be sitting around with a VR helmet on their face. Rolleyes

More amazing was how he managed to stay away from his usual arrogant piece of shit self until the very last paragraph. Yes, cliffyb, I'm sure Notch is EXTREMELY worried about what your irrelevant ass thinks of him. Hypocrit.

Facebook just saved PC VR, and their future. If you are a PC gamer, this is the only solution that I can think of that will see mainstream VR adoption for PCs.

Why are you under the impression that Facebook gives a flying fuck about PCs? More and more of their business is shifting to tablets and mobile because that's where all their users are going/already are. Where does this idea that Facebook is the champion of the PC come from?

So yay, now you'll get a Facebook VR headset for your iphone to play fucking fappy bird on.
