This is Netflix's investment plan. Ok max'd the stock quote, now sell short and give out details that will scare the bejesus out of everyone, stock crashes, we win going up, we win going down and then we'll back track on most of it and then go to a buy and win again on the up. Well that is basically what happened the last time they put out unfavorable news.

"“People don’t take a video game job because it pays well, or to make money," Hall insists. "They’re taking it because they love it"

So says the guy with a lot of cash, I get both sides and why I would only ever do a indy game, why go back to less pay and more hours? I love playing games, developing is fun to, but not worth it under typical circumstances. So you pay shit because someone loves their job, sheesh.

To note CALI passed a minimum wage law a few years back, 83K w/cost of living if you are a programmer, min wage. Not too shabby. I wonder who is finagling around that? My company fwiw abided by it, a good little number of employees went home happy one day...

never really used it.. just never needed to or found it appealing i guess

I'm with NKD, there is some amazing stuff from stupid funny, to down right educational. It takes a while to figure somethings out, but just doing the Front page and growing from there is all you need to start. I don't know how anyone couldn't like a lot of it. The topics/the people commenting as a bunch are witty and insightful. I learn a lot.

Well it is good enough for me to try it out. Game is back to $60 after a little stay at $40, hard to pay $60 today for it. But cool enough we get a demo.

derek smart is a known quantity around here, so step back for a second and ask yourself whether this will honestly have ANY effect whatsoever

This is exactly what's wrong with some Bluesnews comment posters. You have a skewed, toxic view of how these "developers" represent themselves.

A message to Bluenews. You don't have to take away freedom of speech but when you allow toxic behavior on you're website, it takes away viewers that the great journalism and reporting this site does provide.

[Disclaimer:] Don't like the comments? Don't read them. Read the news and be happy.

My response to this is simple. You can't control what comments people link from your site, from others sites. When your commenters are toxic, it easily associates you Bluenews, Base6 and James Furness as a whole. Get control of the comments on your boards when people obviously have an agenda and discard it. Let them find a new home to flame the industry on. You've been around too long to allow this to happen.

First get this shit out of here...

Secondly, people imo show valid concerns, some over the top or inaccurate, perhaps. But this game has all the makings of "too good to be true" and that is the nerve that is being hit. Promise after promise, we need more money after we need more money, more delays than deliverables. If one can't assume negativity isn't going to surround that, then you need life lessons before Blue's has to worry about (insert corporate phrase) "a toxic environment". That said Blue can do what he wants, just don't see why this game would get some type of Ambassadors Treatment.

It's a shitty message board/comment system that happened to become ridiculously popular, but in reality it doesn't matter if it would completely disappear tomorrow. There's no point in getting worked up over it, since a new one will just crop up in its place... This is the natural order of social media. The fact that Reddit has a CEO at all is proof it's been a bloated corpse for a while, ready to pop and drive people away with its stench. And it finally happened. It's possible that in a few years nobody will even know what it is, just like Digg.

Yeah I stay on the front page and funny and it is a good source of info. Ama's are interesting, the funny stuff is funny. It's a nice quick win for me each day. Never really understood gold. Upvote every now and then etc. Simpleton user, but it is bliss I tell ya!

Thanks for kwicky version of the drama to.

Is there a good link with an very abbreviated version of what happened or if one doesn't mind to state it briefly. I would like to have a bit of a clue, even though I highly doubt I'd care to do anything about whatever it is at all. I guess members just get to wrapped up in the-site. Somehow I can just go in, browse a bit that I want, get out and go about life. But somehow something sinister has happened (a mod treated unfairly?) that we should care about that will rock Reddit to its very core. Seems like unneeded drama, but I don't really get it sort of like that gamergate thing.

Well i hope they won't refund a shit , them maybe and just maybe people can learn NOT to fund any games out there , shitty way to overpay for games Clown

Like EA to, I think all games stand on their own merits. So if this crashes and burns, it may have some weight overall but if the right project with the right group and right cost happens, I would do it. There have been good KS and EA games and without either we wouldn't have had them AND AND these are games no one would make anymore that we still want, they are not corporate fed console games. So I'm not narrow enough not to see a bigger picture.

So we can be a bit upset about one part of it, but there is also a lot of good that has come of it to.

There were signs and the longer it went on if you were still funneling $$$'s into this, there were a lot more signs. I just assume every dollar thrown at this game was extra $$$ a person has after bills. Everyone will survive. You'll waste many many 1000's in your life-time.

But is it technically possible to merge Elite and call of duty so it's one "game" assuming you had 64gb of ram to use?

Why would I need 64 gigs? If we were to merge two 3 gig games, what doesn't that equate to 6 gigs needed? And that is doing it as sloppily as possible, zero code assets being used for both.

It's funny were starting to now discuss things at this level. It is doable, can he do it? Long shot. But it's doable.

Hate to break it to you, but 38 Studios collapsing surprised exactly no one outside Rhode Island.

Well I'm not sure we even cared or knew prior. One day post here, 38 closing. Their one game was out, the other in development. It wasn't crowd funded, so to me that is just another out of business deal. That is was a State Funding a good part of that, no big to gamers in general. It was a big collapse, but a much different path or care if this were to fail.

I personally rather it not. If I live in fear from a vulnerability, then I'd live in constant fear.

The f'in O/S is a seemingly never-ending string of security concerns.

I sent CIG a very carefully crafted message containing plenty of video and written proof showing most (like 95%) of my $930 was made under false claims made by Chris himself. I can't imagine CIG denying such a claim; that would be completely unethical.

If serious, tell us how that works out for ya.

Who knew? That Star Citizen would bring a Chris Roberts vs Derek Smart battle. The only possible winner could be the person with a zero dollar pledge.

Next step... other customers catch on to the refund given, now want theirs. Incoming shit-storm.

Perhaps there is a purpose for this.

beyond the obvious applications for VR, id imagine its possible to do funky optical tricks using the extra pixels, even if the eye cant detect them because that may be the point in the first place

VR, so are you saying that perhaps the device is 12K in resolution, but we'll run games on 1080P rez? Like I can run games in 720P on my 1080P monitor?

I was under the impression one of the improvement to the latest VR beta products to make it to consumer was the pixel fill density was going to be larger, meaning less space between pixels, aka a way to reduce screen door effect.

So player run servers are back in? I heard something like only Arena style fighting. The point is, if you own the server you own the rules at no cost, how easy or hard you make things will be up to you, but no money is involved. Will I be able to create a server for say 16 friends and have house rules and have a reasonably large area/planets etc to run around in?
As far as I'm aware the plan for private servers remains unchanged from the original pitch. You'll be able to run your own private servers but they won't have the depth of the PU, as that has a whole load of associated systems (economy simulator, matchmaking, organised events, dynamic AI, etc). They will be updated as new content comes out but after the PU. Private servers will also support modding, unlike the PU.

So based on what we know, yes you'll be able to have 16 friends on a server and have custom rules. You'll also have a large environment to play in.

Interesting, I've heard different, won't say either right or wrong and I have plenty of time I reckon to find out. I've heard is was scrapped and you can only do some small PVP arena battles on your own server.

EDIT: Ok I'm satisfied with this, it states we will have private servers and to me that is the feature I want in this "Hypothetical game" :). Thanks.
