Maybe Mario can be whatever the hell Japan wants him to be because Japan is kinda crazy and who cares. Seriously go watch some of their game shows and commercials sometime then let me know if you think White Mario is a real problem.

I may be a white man but I'm not angry

Japan is a country in which 96% of its population is native, so they really don't see differently colored people all that often. Nintendo making its character all monotone is pretty much in keeping with how Japan IS.

I'd say that if someone wants to be mad at Japan over something, maybe get mad over their glorification of rape and underage sex. (as in, older businessmen screwing teen girls.)

News Comments > Crytek Announces Arena of Fate

It's always amusing to see everyone jump on board a popular genre several years after the fact, when it's likely already peaked. I'm guessing Crytek will announce a DayZ clone somewhere in 2017 or so.


(Also, in 2019, MS will announce a MOBA, and in 2022 they'll do a DayZ clone, both of which will be free on Xbox Live by 2025! Sign up now!)

I hope Palmer and Zuckerberg stick to their guns and fight this in court. I dont think they are going to lose, unless Carmack was really, really stupid and actually did work on the Oculus on company time...(or money, office supplies, whatever...)

But here's the thing, they actually announced that Carmack was ALLOWED to work on the Rift while he was still at id, like a year or so ago. There was a huge discussion about it, how weird it was that he was working for two companies at the same time, and how was that going to work?

So if he was supposed to work on id stuff, but instead worked on the rift stuff, I can see Zenimax having a point. But if Carmack worked on the rift in accordance with that agreement both companies signed, then they're just now fishing for money because FB bought OR.

It's like they've finally figured out that people play Diablo for the fun of finding more loot!

(as opposed to their initial thought of... I dunno? The awesome story or something?)

My cat died on Monday, he was 1 year and 10 months old. It seems so unfair that such a happy, healthy little guy is gone so suddenly.

I'm so sorry, Quboid.

Yeah just wait for it to hit 5 or 10 bucks. It really isn't worth more than that.

Even IF they get all the bugs fixed, and get all the weird minigames destroyed, and get the actual functionality of things like trading systems and fleet commands put back in, there really just isn't anything to DO besides build complexes.

The initial previews sound promising.
GMG has a 20% off code - FUSWJT-B1DU64-JBV8UY that makes the game $28.88

So tempted, but I already don't have any time to play anything... Sigh

As article stated its 4 to 9 watts for standby. Honestly, yeah, we need to worry about people leaving 60 watt lightbulbs on all day, but why are we obsessing of a 5 watt device? There are tons of much more power hungry things in your household.

The XBone uses 16 watts in standby. That's ridiculous. And no one leaves on a 60 watt light bulb for 24/365. And 16 watts is like leaving a CF bulb on all the time.

Indeed, a device using more than 1w in standby is also violating EU laws.... 16 Watts is insane. That's how much an ACTIVE NAS needs, when it servers a bunch of HDD's and network chips.

And the xbone uses that much power when it's OFF ?

Well, it needs to be listening for when you might tell it to turn back on! After all, clicking a button on your controller is too much work!

Looks like some good old school fun time. Only thing that gives me pause after watching the TB video is an apparent lack of bad guys in the levels. Seems TB enters a huge area, kills maybe a dozen (if that) bad guys and the place is clear, are the areas that underpopulated?

Several reviews have said that it does ramp up in the later parts, to the point where it can quickly overwhelm you.

What would you guys say are the best or must-have mods nowadays for albion prelude?

XRM is your one stop shop. It has a bit of everything. New ships, new weapons, rebalanced economy, better NPC behaviour, more action in contested zones, better fleshed out relations between races(races that don't like each other really fight it out etc.).

I use that and nothing else, but some folks add more stuff on top of it. You just need to make sure that you're not conflicting with it when you use other mods.

Yeah, hard to argue with XRM.

This bullshit spin about losing the kinect being bad for everyone is like the spin they put on taking off the always online drm of the Xbox One console back at E3 2013.
Yep, I remember reading comments how people were pissed Microsoft removed the DRM.
They were like "Microsoft had something new and exciting for us but people had to whine about it and now it is fucked for everyone."
I was like Headscratch

Stockholm Syndrome makes people say and do really weird things.

Most likely desperation. I suspect they HAD to launch due to money issues and the launch i.e. preorder numbers HAD to be big enough to sustain them throughout the process of finishing the game. So what better way to frontload a cash infusion than by riding the hype train?

Yeah but it seems so pointless. After TC and AP, every X fan would have bought this anyway, as Egosoft was riding high after two great games. And the non X-fans wouldn't have cared about whether every ship was actively integrated in the economy or not.

It was just a terribly stupid decision, because now they've pissed off the large majority of X fans.

There are still a few people on the forums who claim that anyone who bought the game should have known what to expect, and that everyone should be grateful for the fact that Egosoft is still working on it, because their after launch support is second to none. I sincerely hope that cup of Koolaid never passes within 500 meters of my lips.

Even more incredible is that there are a few dozen people who are actually currently playing it. I think I'd rather shoot nails in my gentleman's sausage.
