Didn't they already do a Lego MMO a few years back, and it tanked horrifically?

X3 is on sale, wonder if I should grab it now.
Also The Bureau for $4 is not bad, I should probably pick it up.

That seems like a pretty great price. Thanks for the heads up on that.

I have American Indian (Native American) DNA floating in my biology. Of course, who doesn't these days?. I also have European DNA. Or should I say I'm Irish, English, Polish, German, Russian, Native American? Or should I spell out each ethnicity clearly and separately?

So the Redskins lost their trademark. Wow. Wonder what they'll do now. They should probably just change the team name seeing how much pressure is on them from all sides. Hell, they don't even play in Washington. Why not call them the "Maryland Mauraders™"?


I saw someone suggest the "Washington Department of Football Services," which I think is the best and most terrifying professional sports name possible.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.
That's fantastic. But it needs an N. Department of Football N(something) Services. DeFNS.

Oh hell, don't give Dan Snyder any ideas. 'Cause you know what word HE'd put up with the N.

(For those of you unfamiliar with Dan Snyder and can't reason this out, it'd rhyme with Snickers.)

Ugh, I'm almost ashamed to be an American over shit like this.. ACTUAL Native Americans don't give a fuck, so quit with the white man guilt trips (aka reverse racism). It's bullshit.

Three actual Native Americans filed the lawsuit. (Other Native Americans had actually filed two lawsuits years earlier that were both defeated on technicalities.)

So, no, that comment is not based in fact.

I'm tempted to pick up XCOM:EW, but only if the game has XCOM been fixed. I haven't noticed any patches since I bought it, except the patch that added support for EW. I quit playing the game because it got too buggy. I was pretty far into the game, then all of the sudden the hit percentage indicators stopped working. No matter what the situation, the hit percentage only showed 1% or 99%.

I had to rage quit XCOM a while back. My soldier was 1 tile away from an alien. He stood up, fired 3 rounds from his assault rifle, point blank. Missed. Alien counters, shoots my soldier, who panics, pulls out his pistol, fires across the map and hits my sniper who was in cover, probably 70 feet away. Gets him right between the eyes. Dead.

It happens. It's the stupidity of a RNG.

As for bugs, I never encountered any in my three playthroughs of Enemy Within. They fixed the teleporting bug, finally, which was really my big cause of anger in the original. EW is brilliant. If you loved EU, EW is like EU but bigger, crazier, badder, better and zanier.

They should just call this the "You Didn't Need All That Money Anyway, Right?" event.

Players can earn in-game items, community rewards, and points for their team by crafting badges throughout the sale.

Oh Gosh, the excitement!!! (Seriously, why do people bother with this?)

Here's a video of a guy explaining "The Physics Of Flying 'Space Fighters'" using Kerbal Space Program.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYPxJtra1ws

That's not just "a guy", that's Scott Manley, who is like the Kerbal Space Program Guru. (Which may have something to do with the fact that he either currently is, or was at one point, working for NASA as a rocket scientist or whatever they're called now.)

Tl;dr Scott Manley is brilliant, and is ALWAYS RIGHT.

I don't think they're saying they're going to turn it into an MMO. I believe from the first announcement they made on this, they're more looking into doing the "companion app" stuff like Ubisoft does with its games now, and to have things from one game tie into another.

The DX Universe refers to the combined group of games that they're planning on releasing (on many different platforms) rather than an MMO.

That's what it looks like to me, anyways.

Most of his arguments make sense, it's just that it's baffling to me that he simply doesn't understand how fucking nuts it is to call people WHO WOULD PAY FOR YOUR GAME 'freeloaders.'

Since it took the Redskins lawsuit EIGHT YEARS to come to a conclusion, I'm fairly sure few developers are worried about losing their trademarks on games from the previous decade.

I like his reasoning, but in essence he's asking players to become actual pilots in order to play his game. Hopefully there will be computer assists for many of these functions (Space Traction Control!), otherwise a ton of players are going to be unable to even fly simple maneuvers with their ships...

Still, the idea of simulating the flight model this way is very, very cool.

2. While every other professional sport has moved to pay services like cable or satellite, the NFL makes every regular-season and playoff game available to you for FREE.

Except the thursday game - you know, the one they moved to NFL Network only....

And the blacked out games. And all the games I can't actually see locally, because I'm not in their area, and... and... and...

Typical lying horseshit, because the morons in Congress never bother to check anything anyway. "Well, the NFL says all the games are free, so dagnabbit, it must be true! Now I need more whores!"
