an annual celebration of the man who discovered Columbus Ohio, first orbited Columbus Circle, and once batted .351 for the Columbus Clippers

I'm... not sure that's accurate.

I'd have figured they were no longer pals because Ballmer is certifiably fucking insane. Hard to stay friends with a guy who throws chairs and dances around screaming on stage in front of his own personnel.

Ballmer drew a line in the sand, and said he’d leave if the Nokia deal wasn’t accepted. The board caved to an altered version of the deal — likely to take Nokia mobile, not the entire kit and kaboodle — to appease their CEO.

Well, so much for the belief that the board was tired of Ballmer... Unbelievable.

The part where they flew through the city on their way to dock, was that free-form flying, or was it a predetermined path? Because if that was free-form, I think I just had a little accident in my pants....

landing on planets will be in-engine cutscenes. you just watched one

Sigh. I knew it was too good to be true.

Just got around to actually watching the video, and they start with the question "Why is DA:I so awesome on PC", and they answer it with "Well, the game has always been on PC, and one of our devs has played on PC for 30 years. Oh, and we have the tactical camera (which every version has.)"

And that's about all they say about the PC version. Err... I'm not sure your video has the proper title...

More sci fi is always a good thing. There's always a chance it will turn out well.

On FOX? There is NO chance it will turn out well. They will force it to air out-of-sequence and will can it within six episodes. Then they'll fit its timeslot with another shitty animated series, or yet another reality show of some kind.

It's FOX. I mean... it's FOX!

Star Citizen thread time again. Get out the Space Popcorn boys.

They haven't funded the space popcorn yet. It's the 62M stretch goal.

Video does look good though. I really do want this to be as awesome as he is imagining it, I'm just skeptical that he can deliver it.

Strangely enough, I don't regret anything I crowd-funded. So far, I feel like I got a pretty good value for the handful of things I kickstarted (*he says as he prepares to fire up Wasteland 2 after posting*).

Wasteland 2 is awesome. It just...doesn't...ever...end.

It's genuinely the first game I've ever thought was just too long. I just entered yet another area, and yay, another two factions and another storyline and... FOR FUCK'S SAKE. I'M SHOOTING EVERYBODY IN THE FACE!

(it's awesome that that's an actual solution, btw.)

I assume it's on the local drive but I would be damn happy if it goes to one of them there clouds! I'll just reinstall it over night and hope for the best.

Yeah but I meant do you know which folder. The only way I can see system restore even doing something to it is if it gets saved in appdata or something, and your profile somehow got corrupted in the restore. In which case the save will likely still be there, just in a separate c:\users\xxxx folder.

Having just read the tweets from the slope headed, mouth breathing cretin...those are appalling and disgusting.

Seriously, how fucking broken do you have to be to say something like that to another human being?

Yeah it's getting pretty fucking ridiculous. And Twitter just sits there counting money.

Don't start an entertainment company that is dependent on a government gravy train, and this wouldn't happen. Plenty of blame to go around, but most of it falls with Shilling and his team. They pissed away millions.

Obviously, but if your theoretical business was struggling and a state government comes to you and says "Hey, we'll give you a 75 million dollar loan if you move all your people here!" would you say no?

All this probe is is the fucking State government looking for a scapegoat to hide the fact that THEY fucked up in giving Schilling that loan.

Why would you be disappointed?

Because I'd like to try Windows 10, but don't feel comfortable having every single thing I type sent back to Microsoft? And I don't feel comfortable having MS scan my SMS and phone data if I Sync my phone to my desktop?

Just because they're upfront about it doesn't make it any more shitty. (and again, I understand that they want to check SOME stuff to help make Win10 better. My phone data has nothing to do with their OS.)

(Whether Josh ever delivers a game or not isn't really a big worry anymore. It was worth the 20 bucks just to see what this guy could do if he focused 100% on game development.)

haha, thats some odd entertainment

Eh, I never really thought the game itself would be something I would play for very long. I'd toodle around a bit until I'd seen some cool stuff, then I'd have gone and played E:D or something, which (very likely) has more structure to it. LT just seems too open-ended to me.

His initial work just looked promising enough, and his videos good enough, that I figured I'd give him 20 bucks to see what he could come up with.

but it is pretty funny hearing dude finally come to grips with reality, in his latest video talking about how now the focus is all on "finishing everything quickly".. yeh, at least its better than cutting and running with the money, but i gotta say i called it

i dont know man.. my gut feeling is that this project will be scrapped in favor of 2.0, or woefully scaled back at some point

Yeah, he is clearly a tools/engine programmer, not a content creator. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even really like creating content, so he was going to keep working on making the engine more awesome until the money ran out.

Once he's done with this some studio will snag him up, maybe even Chris Roberts, and we'll hopefully get to enjoy his engines for many, many years to come.

Since when does "encouraged" mean "forced with no other option"? The option is there, but non-obvious. A legitimate improvement would be to make it more obvious, which is what the article suggests.

That's fair enough.

What users want to change about windows 10 TP.

I'd hope the first thing is the keylogger... Sadly it isn't.


They are probably looking for feedback on what they are actually going to release, not feedback on their tech preview metrics. Your inference that somehow Windows 10 release version is going to be keylogging everyone is really dishonest.

That's not what I was inferring. I said "I hope the first thing is the keylogger" (that they want changed), then I read the article, and no, the keylogger isn't the thing that people are wanting changed, so I said "Sadly it isn't."

Never did I mention the word "release version" anywhere, you just inferred that yourself.

Ice the shit out of it, Blue. 15 minutes on, 45 minutes off.

I can see why Archer is dropping ISIS. Yes, they had it first, yes, its fans aren't going to be confused by Archer suddenly 'supporting beheading American citizens', but there are far far faaaar more people not watching Archer (or, as we should call them, filthy plebeians) and why fight that fight?

ISIS technically doesn't exist anymore in the Archer universe after Vice anyway, so just give it a new name and save yourself the 92 million articles written by retard media calling you a fucking cannibal and terrorist lover.
