Well, good to see that even though they're now owned by Disney, it's Business As Usual for the Star Wars games...

good thing since they'll need to release the PS5 in about 2 and a half years

And from the look of things, MS should get ready to roll out the Xbotwo probably next week.

Doesn't look like they spent TOO much on this, but surprised that some of the KS money went toward making this.

I thought that as well, but then again I figure they're dipping well into their own funds by now, so I doubt that this came directly from KS funds.

On the one hand, I'm looking forward to Wasteland 2, probably a day one purchase for me (I have reached my KS limit, so didn't back it).

On the other hand, can we PLEASE get a post apocalyptic world setting where NOBODY is wearing old football pads? Seriously, those offer zero protection from actual weapons.

Not against bullets, no, but against bats or knives I can see them have some effect.

I love how you people keep calling him a troll, thus recognizing that he is one, and yet YOU KEEP FUCKING REPLYING TO HIM.

Do you seriously not get that you're being FUCKING TROLLED???

26. Re: Star Citizen at $44M May 24, 2014, 17:22 Creston
 
We’re building a system that makes sense, measuring ship interiors, building a standardized cargo container measurement system (see diagram) and determining exactly how cargo will be loaded, unloaded and interacted with in port (and during flight!) As the most recent set of changes to our preliminary ship stats reflect, transporting cargo is going to be more complex than just finding the ship with the highest storage capacity… it’s going to involve finding the right ship type for the job.

Not gonna lie, that sounds pretty cool.

TV series always skip holiday weekends/weeks in the US. Memorial day, especially, is a very heavily traveled weekend, so it's simple true that there are far fewer people left at home to (potentially) watch your show.

Yeah, my DVR is heading down to NC for a golf outing this weekend Rolleyes

TV execs ignore DVR owners, as the DVR owners don't watch commercials in the first place.

"endurance" in GRID means that the race will last 5 minutes, most likely. They turned the 24 hr of Le Mans into a 3 lap event, after all.

7 minutes to drive across the map...(includes video)

It does look like a nice map, but their "7 minutes to drive across" is bogus, as they're constantly turning around and essentially double-backing. It looks like had they driven in a straight line, they'd have crossed the map in maybe 2-3 minutes. Still, the city itself looks nice and big, and well-detailed.

It's a shame the 'country side', so to speak, is so small. I'd have liked to have seen that be bigger. Not necessarily GTA5 big, but bigger than the two streets and a traffic light that it is in WD.

Also, is it me, or does everything seem a bit... empty? This is one of the largest cities in the US, and every street has like 1 pedestrian and 2 or 3 cars on it and that's it?

Every now and then I'm reminded how even the most well-intentioned Westerners still fall so easily into the same historical habits of their more imperialist predecessors. Clear away the modern language, and the assumptions and attitudes this writer displays is basically akin to the various colonial-era "white man's burden" exhortations to "civilize" non-whites in accordance with the "correct" (and inevitably white-centric) viewpoints.

It would be funny, except that as we can so clearly see by this awful article, this sort of subtly patronizing racial paternalism is still so very prevalent, even amongst the more liberal circles. I was hoping this sort of thing was finally dying out back in the 1990s with the multiculturalism push, but over twenty years later I'm still seeing the same mistakes being made over and over again, by the same sort of well-intentioned Westerners who are so blinded by their righteous ideals that they can't see how hypocritically racist and ethnocentric they are being.

Maybe I'm getting too old for this shit. Maybe I should stop caring so much. It's just another stupid racist article in a sea of relentless idiocy. Outrage fatigue is a real thing; the more you worry about every little meaningless offensive thing, the less energy you have to work on the things that actually, really matter, and I just don't have nearly as much energy to spare as I used to. But for some reason or another this irks me more than usual, so I take the time and trouble to de-lurk and rant uselessly like the cranky old geezer I've become.

Very nicely put.

You see what happens whenever race and gender come up in this forum as well as I do. You can really deny that games have an issue?

No, games do have 'issues' (which is a very wide-reaching concept), I just think that Nintendo only having "white" characters isn't something to get upset over, or even something they need to change.

Nintendo has been putting out the exact same games since the 1980s, when obviously none of this was even considered an issue to begin with. They are using characters they've been using for decades. What are they supposed to do? Make Mario black out of some token effort to be race-inclusive, or whatever? All their fans would explode.

Also, how many outcries from colored people have there been regarding this issue? Was it even an issue until Ars Technica White Guy brought it up?

There are idiots like Broussard in gaming who think a trailer should be a chick in hotpants with her tits hanging out of her torn crop top. That's probably a far better issue to complain about than Nintendo being stuck in the 80s.

In any case, like I originally said, it just seems that all these "gaming journalists" are now just actively looking to whine about shit. When we've fixed the more serious issues in gaming, maybe we can start worrying about Nintendo needing to realize there's more to life than people of one skin color.
