The game is paid for now. There is no need for additional development resources.

First of all, the game's scope has grown so while the original design may be paid for, its current (bloated?) design may not be. Secondly, if there are people (suckers?) still willing to pay $2500 for a ship what incentive do they have to discount them? Not to mention that doing so would be a slap in the face to those who paid full price...

We Bluesnewsers are so much more sophisticated than that!

News Comments > Peter Molyneux Hitting The Trail
3. Re: Peter Molyneux Hitting The Trail Dec 2, 2014, 10:23 Prez
 
What we will be told:

'The Trail' cannot be explained in mere human language. It is simply too awesome to explain within the strict primitive confines of human communication. In fact, its incalcuable greatness will not be able to be fully appreciated by any normal human mind. Only transcendent beings of divine intelligence will be able to grasp the supreme angelic perfection of "The Trail". The term "game" is an insultingly insufficient term to explain what "The Trail" actually is. To play "The Trail" is to look at the face of God Himself, bask in His endless glory, and live, forever changed by his divine omnipotence.

What it will be:

An obtuse, impenetrable, barely interactive point and click fest about mundane themes.

I like Paradox strategy games but they go a little insane with the dlc. I'd have to spend double what I spent on Crusader Kings 2 to buy all of the dlc while it's on sale.

If people bought it for that reason, it's likely the same people that feel a fedora and a trench coat will class up a graphic tee, incorrectly sized and dyed jeans and a neckbeard.

So you are saying it won't?

I'm assuming that all this "stretch goal" nonsense is stuff that will be implemented after the release of the game. Otherwise all these people spending money on Star Citizen are actually delaying the release of the game, which would be insane. And did I read that they've already had an "anniversary" sale? The game hasn't shipped yet!

There is no case. Period. PC gaming has always been about choice so those who need to can lock their framerate at 30FPS. It's for the gamers to decide, not the developer.

Poor Raiders. Maybe they should play the Giants so they can get a win. The G-men look terrible this year. Just awful. But at least the Jets look worse, which is something I guess.

Totally worth it.

Anyone still defending her as legit has to be certifiably insane.

Agreed.

The strange part is that Sarkeesian is essentially an academic who has spent the past two years putting together a scholarly criticism of video games as a medium, through a series called “Tropes vs Women in Video Games,” published on her website Feminist Frequency.

*FACEPALM* She is "essentially an academic"?!? She has a degree in "Communication studies" for chrissake! And here videos were the farthest thing from "scholarly"; they were amateurish and filled with logical fallacies and misrepresentations. The media really needs to stop fluffing her up - she really is not the expert critic they are making her out to be. She is just a person with an opinion who got some money to make a video.

I make time for gaming. If I put it off until all my RL resposnibilities were taken care of I would never game any more. Everyone needs some leisure time slaying baddies and vanquishing evil. Unless it's GTA V, then it's slaying grandmas and hookers and vanquishing decency.

Being in the South it is disturbing how many people I talk to who are against any kind of checks whatsoever. I can't for the life of me imagine why anyone would be against keeping guns out of the hands of felons and mentally ill people.

I am liking what I am seeing on this sale. There a quite a few games marked down to 2 or 3 bucks that I've been wanting to add to my Steam collection like Startopia and Hitman Contracts among others.

As is the case with most complex issues numbers alone don't tell the whole story; often they tell less than half the story. Statistics can be made to dance a jig, and are rarely presented in a proper context. Furthermore, there are factors that statistics do not take into account.

Remember during the Cold War of the '80's where Russia and the US were lobbing nuclear missiles at each other? Me neither. Basically both nations reached absolutely ludicrous stockpiles of nuclear weapons without ever using (and in fact hoping they didn't have to use) a single one. And yet ex-Soviet defectors confirmed in intelligence interviews following the USSR's collapse what we here in the US suspected - the only thing that prevented a full scale invasion by Russia is the existence of said weapons. Hell, we most likely had similar plans that went un-executed for the same reason. The paradox of the Cold War era weapons of obliteration is that it is both a horrible shame that atomic weapons were ever invented yet we were extremely fortunate to have had them. The statistics showing that they were never used and their exorbitant costs to build and maintain does not indicate they were pointless, for they essentialy prevented a horribly bloody war between two superpowers.

In a country so flooded with firearms, it's like a cold war of sorts, where many feel compelled to own them just for a similar type of deterrence. You will never see a statistic for how many home invasions or carjacking didn't happen because of the likelihood of the potential victim owning a firearm in high crime areas like Memphis. I would LOVE to live in a society where there was no need or place for guns. Unfortunately that will never be the US.

I own guns because it is legal, but more to the point because I feel it is a necessity. I work in a bad part of Memphis and have to drive through it all hours of the night. I've had a guy walk up to my car and try to et in the passenger side at a red light. I was at work last night when the decision to not indict was announced and gunshots could be heard throughout the night. I had to pull my gun once because I saw a dangerous situation developing, and the sight of me doing so de-escalated what could have been a bad situation.

All of that said, I wish the damn things were never invented.

Is it fucking ludicrous just what a goddamned fucking piece of shit Uplay is.

I'm downloading my (free) copy of FC4, taking forever, and my system hard crashes somewhere during it. (Thanks DA:I! )

Trying to get Uplay to come back up, and it keeps crashing, so finally I uninstall it and reinstall it. And lo and behold, even though I still have the 5+ GB I had already downloaded, Uplay just goes and insist on redownloading the entire fucking thing again.

FUCK YOU TO FUCKING HELL, UBISOFT, YOU WORTHLESS PIECES OF CUNTDRIZZLE.

Yeah, I'll admit I am partial to Steam but even so, objectively speaking Uplay and Origin have presented loads more problems downloading and installing games than Steam ever does. Steam's download and install process couldn't be smoother, while I can't remember a single time that I didn't have some sort of problem/frustration downloading and installing with Origin and Uplay. I ended up getting things working in the end, but not without some false starts, restarts, and general headaches.
