Don't they mean "Last Gen and Current Gen" since the "next gen" consoles are already out?

Next gen is now current gen.

From a marketing perspective, that's a bad thing to say. HE should have said, "This game looks and plays great on both platforms." His current comments make it sound like the newer consoles are getting a last-gen game.

That's exactly what they're getting, so at least he's honest about it, but yeah, Bobby Kotick's marketing peons are undoubtedly throwing fits right now.

Eh, at least it's a fairly original idea. It depends on how much you could alter, and how extensive the changes are through time. It might be interesting.

It also doesn't even make sense within their own technology. Why isn't the inertial dampener countering that inertia as well? I can see it not engaging under a certain threshold, otherwise they couldn't even move around, but when a crew member is flung across the deck, the inertial dampener should simply prevent that from happening.

According to the comments on that page, the inertial dampener gets its input from the ship's computers or whatever, it's meant to be countering inertia from known acceleration, not so much unexpected blasts and crashes.

That still makes no sense. The Enterprise computer is so powerful and so fast that in between the nanosecond it takes for the blast to hit the shields and the kinetic energy to transfer to the crew, it could have calculated and adjusted the inertial dampener 2 billion times over while taking a vacation.

But I'm nitpicking. It's still funny to see them shake around in behind-the-scenes footage, and I never get tire of hearing a director say "Shake!"

Keep meaning to try it as well. Thought we had a few folks a year or so ago that spoke well of it.


I think Prez backed it.

Apologies for yielding to what might seem to some as sensationalist press but this one shocked me. Two 12 yrs. stab a friend over 19 times. Police claim they planned it for months and had a sleep over with the victim the night before the attack.

Crazy and sad.

... holy shit.

i can't imagine that there would be too many ppl interested in this game? amirite?

There must be, otherwise they'd never bother. I have no interest in any Fable game, but it's cool that they'll bring it to the PC.

It's funny because the director will always say "Shake" when they have to film one of those scenes. It is pure hilarity to see all of them looking so seriously and then do a little shimmy. (bonus fun when one actor forgets they are supposed to shimmy to the right first, and goes against everyone else.)

It also doesn't even make sense within their own technology. Why isn't the inertial dampener countering that inertia as well? I can see it not engaging under a certain threshold, otherwise they couldn't even move around, but when a crew member is flung across the deck, the inertial dampener should simply prevent that from happening.

Uplay's cloud saves have been borked since day one of the shitty program, and basically every game that gets shafted with it has had these kinds of issues.

The first thing I do with any ubisoft game is to turn the cloud saves off.

I don't get the reading rainbow thing, it's still going to be a paid subscription. Seems like a ripoff to me.

It does still need to be actually developed first for the web, and the initial hardware purchased, and the hosting fees paid etc. You can't start producing content based off of the $5 monthly fees that will come in once you're up and running.

That said, if he could do all of it for a million bucks, which seems very reasonable, I'm not sure what all the extra money is going to buy.

Even so, reading rainbow is a very worthy undertaking, and I'm glad it's doing so well, and I'm glad LeVar is so invested in it.

Btw, if you think Teens react to 90s internet is funny, check out Kids React to Old Computer and Kids React to Sony Walkman. They're both pretty hilarious.

The sunken cost fallacy is alive and well in the F35 project I see, it is hard to believe that debacle is still ongoing.

At the time when it was just ramping up (mid to late 90s, I think?) Holland was debating on whether to join in on the F-35 program, or go with most of the other European nations into the Eurofighter Typhoon.

IIRC, Holland chose to go into the F-35 program. So they're still flying F-16s, while the rest of Europe has been flying the Typhoon since... 2003? And the Typhoon was FAR from a smooth development, as it lingered in politician whiny-ass limbo for quite awhile.

So yeah, the F35 been a spectacular failure. The government should just tell Lockheed "Fuck you, you're paying for the rest of this shit out of your own pocket."

...if you buy a 4K movie from Sony, you'll need a Sony television to play it back. If you buy one from Samsung, you'll need a Samsung TV to view it

Curious as to how they enforce this,

It's a simple flag in HDCP. In any case, both Sony and Samsung, and anyone else who thinks we need another format war, can go fuck themselves. I already had roughly 0.000001% interest in buying a 4K tv, and now that has gone to actually negative numbers.

So now Korea apparently has enough soldiers to swamp the entire US. Heh.

In any case, the original was fucking terrible. Truly the worst example of the 100% on rails, 100% scripted shooter. It wasn't even worth the 10 bucks that I paid for it. 5 hour campaign full of bullshit where the NPCs do all the work for you.

And that apparently gets a sequel...

I propose a new piece of legislation. Any politician that accepts money from lobbyists has to wear that companies logo like a car sponsorship at all times.

Let's go one further. If a politician takes money from a corporation, that corporate logo gets branded into their fucking forehead.

But, but, but, then all the politicians would be dead from heat exposure from being branded over every last square centimeter of skin!

Oh, wait. That's a feature, not a bug.


Yeah I was looking on the bright side.

Edit: Scratch that I know why all too well.

Shitty corporations and lobbying.

In any case, reclassifying it to 10mb would tumble the US from its supposed sixty something percent of broadband penetration to well below 30%, because nowhere in rural america can you get that.

Of course, knowing what kind of a cockwallet Tom wheeler is, he'll say "Well, everyone can get Hughesnet, and that's 15mbps, so broadband penetration has now reached 100%!"
