Everybody cares? Which is why this like countless products before it will fail in short order?

Yeah, that's why Blizzard has made an entire career doing this very thing. Nothing new, and doing it well.

Maybe you should consider getting off your lawn chair, and taking the red pill and wake up. Or have you become so old and jaded, you just prefer to bitch about everything video games, and not enjoy one of them?

I bitch extra loud at MMO's doing the same thing over and over. There is literally 1000 MMO's, most end up being way way too similar and grinding pastures sucks ass to me anymore. At least things like EQ Next and a few others are working toward building and creating user communities.

Hell I don't feel bad about it, going to MMO centric web sites, that is the main plea from the overall user base. Now are there exceptions? Certainly. Still many thousands love MMO's, but a lot I think it is fair to say have been turned off by the lack of anything different happening.

Well please ask questions and let us answer...

Does it do anything new? No. (You agree)

Who cares? I do, for me to play a MMO it now has to do something very new.

Is it fun? Lots of games are. Most are less than $60/$15.

Fun isn't hard to find these days in video games. Something new definitely is hard to find in MMO's. Something new isn't hard to find in the Indy scene at under $25.

One noted that this has been in the oven for 9 years, get that. But I can only judge based on where we are now at release.

I like how these peasants see a screenshot and immediately dismiss it as a WoW clone. It plays nothing like WoW. Peasants.

There going to need the peasants dollars, the nobles are out banging chicks not playing video games.

RTS's aren't even hot on systems with mouse and key. So this may need to be filed under too little too late.

IMO she's free to make whatever video games she likes, like the rest. Don't really need censorship either way, just freedom to make what we like.

If anyone thinks video games are overly sexist, have you seen videos/cinema?

Cliff, a lot of those that bought it really cheap... I bet a good number of those are part of the 40% or whatever it was, was games people bought on Steam and never even played. I have a handful for sure and I don't feel bad, I know the game was worth it, fosters the industry and perhaps some day I will buy it. I know I have a number on my Wishlist that I will not buy period until it is on a strong sale. To me it's better some $ than no $$$ and where they sit now, no $$$.

I would have to ask, why does the pirated version run so much better than the Uplay version? No lag when turning in a car, decent FPS with all the bells & whistles.
Because you're full of shit?

Well I've seen the pirated version run (No, I don't do that) on a 660 with a stock mid-high range Intel quad, all set to Very High or the setting right under Ultra. Game looked very crisp and ran super sweet. GFX are subjective, but it is was silk like in movement.
There is no difference. Why would there be?

I can't say there is, I'm just saying the version I saw and how it looked and ran, smooth as glass and good looking. Now it is still possible, I remember back in the day of Starforce and the like, DRM actually was hindering performance on some games, it was so intrusive you could pick up 10 frames having a cracked version.

Am I the only person finding the revival of dead celebrities via hologram disturbing? It's funny on something like Futurama, but in reality?

It is odd, I thought you could see the audience in general was confused on what to do. I'm not sure if it even was the "Dead Thing" the biggest part. How about being in the audience cheering and getting into a fake artist on stage? That alone would make me feel strange. It still could be a glimpse into the future, as we get used to it, new gen comes up living in a world like that.

Lets say Judas Priest now a very old band but well alive, have this done to them in their prime and in general it rocks vs what the real thing looked like back in the day even. Would I buy tickets and go nuts in the audience to images that look real life on stage? That would take some rewiring for me.

For those complaining about the price, it's basically funding an unfinished project... getting access to an unfinished build is just a perk. He certainly isn't "selling" the game at that price.


I think the price is high, too rich for my blood. But if they are clear upfront what is going on, all good. All totally good. Now we can still say their crazy, but the buyer has the info to know what the cost is and what it gives back. That is why I don't have any issue with Kick or EA, it's up to you what to do.

For me I hope it rocks and see you at release! (Star Citizen all the same)

JFK has Snowden's back:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boOAfFOK7Ns

We know the lie is "You can whistleblow", yeah right.

If this weakens the US, its because we are unjust. If we are just we don't have anything to fear.

Way too much hides behind national security.

"Lower prices would allow us to stop thinking about filler, and start focusing on making the experience just right"

This is where I am at, only a few games I'm asking for an epic time with. Most I'd be happy with 7-15 hours for <$25. To me the stuff gets repetitive, filler-like, best just end it and get to the next.

There are plenty of other games out there, can't people play those while they wait for SC?

I am happily doing that. Still enjoying the topic however. Nice to have $0 into it at this point. Hope its all that, love to buy someday.

I have little doubt Kerry believes every word he said.

While some people might agree what Snowden did was morally right, that doesn't mean it wasn't technically criminal. Personally, I found his revelations only mildly surprising, if you had asked me if the NSA was doing that stuff prior to the announcements, I would have said something like, "I hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me."

Do I think the NSA should have been doing what they were. Probably not. Do I understand the thinking that got them there. Yes. Do I think Snowden did "the people" a favor by revealing this? *shrug* Maybe.

How Kerry replied was frightening, we know "Whistleblowing" isn't working, don't act like it does. And don't tell us he can come back to America and tell his side to the American People. Yeah right, he'll be jailed never to be heard of again.

IMO what Snowden is doing now is the only way for the American People to hear him. Everyone knows this. But you'll actually lie and tell us he'll be free to speak to us. Now you insult my intelligence.

IMO it is very clear who is the real liar here, Kerry. "If he were a Patriot he would stand up to the charges", the only reason he leaked the info the way he did is because whistle-blowing doesn't work and and he hoped to live in freedom after reporting the unconstitutional happenings, which California is going to pass soon laws on the NSA because they are finding what they are doing unconstitutional.

The dude basically sacrificed his quality of life to get the message to us. Even if we don't care, we should know things of this nature. We never built the gov't in the US to be a secretive one, but one that serves. There are so many things going against what our Forefathers warned us about, it's sickening.

Then they try to sell us that he's a "low level derelict", he isn't, we knew he wasn't but that is what they do. Even to people that have worked in the CIA/FBI etc for decades on very high profile cases, if they go rouge, they are all of a sudden sold to us as dumb ass losers.

The NSA spying is debatable, lying about things because you don't like what happened though is never right.

Just tell us everything on the internet/phones is considered public record and due to that it can and will be recorded and be done with it.

But don't sit there and lie to us, imo his rebuttal is one of the most blatant phony replies ever. Almost everything he said would never happen as he says it would if Snowden turned himself in. Jack ass, man I sort of had a flat opinion of Kerry, now he's pretty much unrecoverable to me. Liar.

The problem with automated cars is drivers. Automated cars can communicate with each other perfectly and probably make traffic infinitely more efficient - no more driving down highways and hitting a wave that makes you slow to a crawl because some jackass miles up slammed on his brakes.

But throw one human driver in there and suddenly the entire system breaks.

Yes, the whole scope of how this can work is a pretty good think.

You are right, someone wants to drive manually and they fuck up Rush Hour traffic. Where if everything was automated you could do 40 mph, but the one jackass took it to manual and now were are stop and go again.

I'm willing to roll along and see how this one goes, I'm sort of amazed this thing is heating up and getting a bit serious.
