I got SimCity4 for free when Origin was giving it out, but haven't played it yet...

Would it be a good idea to just install the NAM mod from the get-go or would you recommend playing vanilla first?

Get NAM. Vanilla traffic is fucking terrible. It'll drive you insane.

Many decried how big-name AAA games no longer seemed to offer the same value-for-the-dollar, as the industry increasingly homogenized its product; even as the production values were getting better, games were becoming shorter, gameplay was less interesting and there was less apparent variety.

The weird thing is that that has COMPLETELY turned around. It was probably four or five years ago that we were lamenting that every game was just getting shorter and shorter, and 5 hour campaigns were becoming the absolute norm, even in a game that had nothing else to offer, but now the SP portions of games are 10-12-15 hours. I fully expected the new Wolfenstein game to be 6 hours, 4 of which would be cutscenes, but there are lots of reports from people who said it took them 15 to 20 hours to complete.

I'm glad it has turned around, but on the flipside, I can see it being a brief respite before it just goes into the doldrums again...

In the immediate aftermath Chmielarz saw EA's marketing as the culprit, reducing People Can Fly's clutch of fresh ideas to dick-jokes for dude-bros. "Things that were, in my opinion, like spices in the game became its main ingredient in the marketing," he says.

Noooooo! Get outta town! You mean EA's marketing department is fucking inept and hinders a game far more than it helps? I'm stunned. Absolutely stunned, I say.

I mean, after their "It's the new shit!" campaign for DA:O, how can anyone think that these guys aren't Don Draper Squared???



tl;dr FUCK YOU AND DIE EA MARKETING DEPT.

I like the word permenant. It seems of low enough intelligence to fit the CEO of a game publisher like a glove.

Anyone know anything about city building sim called Civitas on kickstarter sometime ago that looked a lot like SimCity 4? It seemed to some potential but the kickstart drive was canceled because the developer got private funding and I never heard anything else about it. It's probably dead in the water.

Yeah I don't think he ever got private funding. That screamed SCAM from day one.

Oh believe me I know a guy on Steam who owns ALL of the DCS stuff, it's easily a couple hundred bucks. I'm just not willing to pay that much for a good flight game.

Eh, if that's all he plays... I probably spend a good 500+ dollars per years on different games, that guy likely just spends it all on one. Not sure what the difference is.

I love Freddie and miss him dearly. Behind Roy Orbison he's one of the greatest vocalists ever. But I really hate when bands, or rather the publishers, milk it with this sort of shit. It was fantastic while it lasted, but just let it go fellas. Time to move along.

I agree. Also, they've been talking about this 'album with freddie songs' basically since 1990.

Well, they already did Made in Heaven...that was 95.


Embarrassed You're right, forgot about that...


On a sidenote, been playing Crysis 3, and it is AWESOME. If any of you enjoyed Crysis 2, Crysis 3 is even better. Having an absolute blast playing it.

500 dollars got you iteration 2 of a camera that MS has again given up on, a horrifically underpowered box to play games on, worthless games in their free program, and (for awhile) paywalls.

But on the flipside, you get 4 mp maps for a shitty edition of CoD an entire month earlier! WOOOOO FEEL THE LOVE!

Average Mars-Earth distance is roughly 225 million kms, so the asteroid seems to be going at ~270ish meters per second. Not real sure that's going to kill the planet.

It's not the speed of the asteroid, but the size. An asteroid the size of Manhattan (12 miles) would certainly cause a mass extinction of all but the most hardy plants and animals, essentially recreating the last mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous in which the dinosaurs and most other megafauna went extinct. The crater itself would be 200 miles in diameter, and so much debris would be in the atmo that global temps would drop to sub-arctic levels worldwide.

Not if it's going just 270 meters per second it's not. C is the important vector, not so much M. It'd still do a lot of damage, but if it splashed in the ocean, as is likely, it'd cause a tsunami and that's about it.

Normally asteroids that would be a threat to earth are travelling in the range of 10-20 km/s, or even faster.

In any case, the idea that there's a manhattan sized object that close to earth without having been detected was crazy enough to begin with.

I think the show is sometimes better than the source material to be honest. Don't worry about reading past the show, the show is moving much faster than GRRM anyway so by the time you're done ADWD the show will likely be wrapping up

Sacrilege!!! Though shall not speak such heresy here again or though shall forever be condemned to the fiery pits of the Devil

Sacrilege or not, it's definitely true. And the reason the TV show is better is because it actually keeps moving, unlike the books which have been stuck in the same status quo for... oh, going on like 9 years now? Vegas odds on Martin pulling a Robert Jordan are now basically non-existent. No bookie thinks he can make money on that anymore.

Without yet reading this thread, there's sure to be a bunch of "I told you it was a scam!" comments.

Actually, about 80% of it is about how awesome Elite:Dangerous looks.

Out of the 8 people in my department, three of them are actually black, and two of them are female. (However, in the rest of the entire 100 man IT dept, there are only a few other black people.)

Still, that means that my department is like 900% better than Google, so hah!

Also, congrats to LeVar and I hope their Kickstarter keeps going up and up and up.


Finally, I always thought Data was kinda pretty, for an android.
