When it comes to fast food I have one rule pretty much: if it tastes good, I eat it. Depending on how healthy or unhealthy it is I'll moderate it accordingly, but I love me some McNuggets drenched in sweet and sour sauce (Hmm, why is my arm tingling? ). Surely the two unnamed fast food outfits are McDonalds and Wendy's, since they are the two big ones that sell them.

Arizona solar plant achieves six hours after sun goes down.

I've been reading about concentrated solar power (CSP) for about a decade, and think it's a key component if future energy production since it allows solar created energy to be used at night. Glad to read that this one is operating successfully.

The SW US could produce most of the electricity for the entire US using a combination of PV and CSP. High voltage DC only loses 5% of it's power over 1000 miles, so the distance isn't really a concern.

It's neat technology, but egads, if 3 square miles is needed to produce only 280 Megawatts what size facility would be needed to power a city the size of New York? The number of mirrors/panels and the acreage to put them on would be HUGE.

Maybe I'm easy to impress, but that video impressed me. Honestly though it's really going to come down to a hands-on test for everyone to really understand how close to a m+k setup this controller is. A video can't really convey enough.

Despite the lukewarm reviews this received I am still interested in it. The developers have been working hard to make it better since release so that's good.

What Creston said. This isn't Rockstar's first rodeo - when it comes to licensing music you have to figure they are going to have their ducks in a row. I'd be surprised if this didn't get thrown out.

I could have sworn they released an updated version like a year or so ago? With more missions, more adventures, etc.

Space Rangers 2: reboot was released a few years ago.

Space Rangers 2 is a sequel to the first; it surpassed the original but the first still has its charm. SR2 Reboot added all that stuff to the sequel. To my knowledge there has never been an update to the original prior to this one.

Beyond the nostalgia factor (and maybe there's a bit of "retro cool" involved), I can't imagine why anyone would want to use vinyl records over cd's. They were such a pain!

The video was awesome (The new Garrett isn't THAT bad...) . What has me worried is that interview I read this morning.

can you say what you found was awesome by the vid? didn't look so great to me... at least it didn't look like the good 'ol Thief from back in the day.

Well as much as I love Thief and Thief 2 (even Thief 3 to a lesser extent) I'm okay with it not being exactly in the same vein. The huge dark city, the stealthy stealing of stuff that I find so goddammed addictive, and the overall mood look incredible. He is seen doing classic 'Thief' moves like using water arrows and such, so that was cool. It obviously doesn't guarantee a good game, but it was a very good trailer I thought.

Read the hands on material people are talking about, they aren't really discussing the video content when they are expressing concern.

Yep. Based on the video alone (which in fairness to Horrorscope is the only thing referenced in this thread headline) this would have shot up straight to the top of my wishlist. That's a win for marketting I guess. It's the hands on preview that is going around that has us all worried. It tells a very different (perhaps "truer") story of the game. Still, I was certain the XCOM reboot was going to suck balls based on previews and I ended up loving it so anything can happen.

I dunno - a new Blade Runner with a Harrison Ford cameo wouldn't be so bad, though it's doubtful a new movie would come near the genius of the first. But this probably means they want him to be star, which I hate. If the last "Indiana Jones" movie taught us anything, it's that Ford's action movie days are long behind him.

@BigShot

Bots? You sir, need to be waterboarded. Multiplayer with bots becomes boring and less satisfying than defeating a human that you can taunt and humiliate after punishing him for awhile.

Thumbs down for bots. The one thing I especially hated about bots was connecting to a server and "not knowing" whether who was a bot and who wasn't. Very deceptive stuff. How upsetting it was to discover I was playing against bots and not humans in the past.

If you don't like them, don't use them. But that doesn't mean other people wouldn't like them, or that they should be excluded.


With how badly I suck at competitive MP games (no it is not just a matter of practicing more - I really just SUCK) the only way I can enjoy a BF game is coop/sp against bots. So yeah, I'll take bots.

There are filters for everything in the server searches; just filter hour search for servers with bots disabled if you don't want them.

... It's more XCOM; what could possibly go wrong?

Goddammit! Why did you have to go and do that? No you jinxed it!

You know why Duke Nukem FOrever turned out disappointing don't you? Before it shipped someone said "It's more Duke Nukem; what could possibly go wrong?"

So is it or isn't it? Microsoft execs need to have a long talk with their PR department. It sounds like they are all winging it as they all keep saying contradictory things.

There is no HL3, sadly. Why would they bother making a FPS single player game, even with traditional multiplayer DM/CTF or whatever, spending millions, when they can do almost nothing and keep making bank on Steam itself, DotA 2, and other various semi-indie games they absorb like the Borg?

Because they are still gamers at heart who want to give other gamers what they want dearly? Okay, I know that may be ridiculously naive, but I kind of hope it is still true.

Love the SimCity series in general, but this one has had so many bad decisions, that even offline, I'm not sure I would pick it up.

Exactly. Like Diablo 3, forced online play for Singleplayer was only one reason I didn't buy the latest Simcity. Why are the cities so damn small? It looks more like Simvillage.
