KS/EA read up to lesson risk. If you really can't afford it, don't do it.

Next.

Plenty of successes and failures, probably a lot like there are in any invention type space.

Oculus, still wonder how they were ever going to ship if they didn't get the miracle from Facebook?

Analogies are rarely needed in game chat, the subjects are pretty well understood and/or are explainable at a common level without bringing another subject in as a reference. This isn't rocket surgery.

The sales price when done will be cheaper, at first I was scoffing at a lot of things regarding the game, including price. But it does look interesting enough to keep an eye on.

Jeans are funny for a long time that is all I wore, then one day I realized I no longer wear them and have no desire. There are better feeling, breathing fabrics out there. That's my jeans story, what's yours?

Well everyone here is keeping their fingers crossed anyway.

This. My ole man plays a ton, he's early 70's still going strong, mom never touched pc's, losing it some. Probably not a big enough sample.

"A Persistent Universe experience. I'm a stealthy, solo player. I find a wrecked ship, i know scavengers will be around soon. I find a crate and put myself in it. I let the scavengers take the crate and put me in their ship. When i'm on their ship, some time later, i get out of the crate. Very quietly, i rummage around and find some goodies i like. I steal those... now i can either - A) Jump out the airlock and call a ride or B) go to their engine room and self destruct their ship or C) quietly hunt and execute the entire staff and take their ship.... or Z) they could have scanned the crate properly before loading it, blasted it with their ship and me with it...."

So what I read here is Z always happens so those awesome A-Y possibilities, can't happen because Z always happens. Scheew that was close, programming all that would have been a mother fucker. But you can say it could of if Z didn't happen. But since...

And to promises of FPS are even best ever for games that just do FPS. Pretty much anything an AMA question could dream up, they had the answer of Absolutely and that only scratches the surface style answers. It's just the best at everything, ever other developer has just been slacking all these year. I knew it!

Perhaps they should have said... after viewing this, the last games you'll think about are Ultima and BoK.

Still playing ESO and loving it. The weird thing is that it has lasted longer then GW2 did for me, and it's subscription based. I swore off of subscription based after GW2... I was wrong.

I've felt if it is good it's worth the sub, there are plenty of advantages to a sub, probably the feel of less nickle dimeing being the main one. Keeping out more unwanted a close second. If you are into a mmo, a sub is cheap gaming.

"I don't think it was a good idea because you don't gain that much from 60 fps, and it doesn't look like the real thing. It's a bit like The Hobbit movie, it looked really weird."

LOL using the Hobbit to try and confuse us. This issue had been settled 15-20 years ago and they try to turn it around, lol.

Wonder why this would need a greenlight campaign, I thought the first was considered a wild success. Also worth noting, it is stuff like this that makes Indy cool. Totally fresh idea, the first I'm speaking of.

A well worn fictional trope is hardly fresh.

Name 5 games like it?

How the mergers will go... in time they will happen. They have all the time in the world, we have limited focus. They know it, we know it, just delaying the inevitable, which is still good, but in the end we'll tire or they'll say we tired and the merges will happen.

For the most part, I think most places report the news (what, when, where?) well, and that includes Fox news and MSNBC. It's their commentary (why?) I can't stand. Make up your own mind about which outlets to trust. You only have access to literally all of them.

Who cares about if someone screwed someone else and, if all that's true, suffer the rightful professional consequences. It's not an indictment of the media. It's a stupid thing that's, quite frankly, none of my fucking business and we're all worse off for having been exposed to it.



I like this.

You also got to love how they bring in what jackwagons like us in cyberworld have to say on any topic. Jim Blowchunks tweeted "Blah blah blah blah blah", it is just totally worthless. We barley care what we say here and we quasi know each other, now just some complete random person says "blah blah", yeah? So? We all know people have opinions. Then they cherry pick the comments they want the listeners to here. You can see it just isn't right, but we head down the path anyway.

It says in the article that she figured out the identity of one of the people making threats. She should have contacted the US authorities immediately.

Maybe she did, maybe she didn't. But what would one really expect the results to be?

Do you call 911?
Do you call the local po po?
Do you call the FBI?

You explain the situation, do they really follow up on something like this? Assuming std citizen credentials, not a celebrity or a powerful person.

A digital version of red light/green light is a fresh idea?

The manner in which they do it, yes. Because using your cleverness, there is nothing fresh, everything is a play of something else to some level. Yes I find taking Chuck E Cheese animatronics, twist in horror doll movies and making a game in the manner they did, fresh.

So by someone doing that means she's right and gamers wrong? Is that the game they are trying to play? I dunno, because I am not going to read this shit.

Currently the ultimate purpose seems to be, "If X receives a death threat, then everyone critical of X is encouraging people to send death threats and are themselves guilty of sending death threats by proxy, even if they denounce it, because denouncing isn't sufficient - you have to drop the entire movement altogether.

Unless we like X, in which case the threats are just some lone nuts and aren't worth talking about to begin with."

The line that's being pushed hard is that being pro-GG is identical to hating women, threatening them with rape, and being a misogynist, with concern about journalist ethics, media behavior, and so on all being a lie to cover up that hate.

Figured, that is why I'm staying out of it...

Saying: "You give them a name/voice and you give them the power"

By listening you are enabling.

So what's the point here?

Lets say she did get death threats. What does that have to do with gaming in general? So she tapped a nerve of a psychotic person, that is why you don't put yourself out there so easily, putting a target on yourself. I am so protective of what I say when my real name is being used and well I still don't threaten people with my handle, but again, surprise, she upset a psycho. There is a connect the dots thing here.

So by someone doing that means she's right and gamers wrong? Is that the game they are trying to play? I dunno, because I am not going to read this shit.
