$150 beta, shitty trend imo. That said we have free choice, I'll be 0 for however many of these will ever exist.

Perhaps 4 full release game keys... still not for me, but now I start to feel the value in it.

Desalinization is incredibly expensive and energy intensive.

Yes, it is. And the longer we wait as a country to start putting plants and infrastructure down to be able to provide basic water necessities once drought reaches critical levels all over, the more it's going to cost.

A simple prohibition on watering lawns would be wise, even though such a thing is obviously beyond any fucking politician's ability to grasp, but it's a stop-gap measure. The only way to guarantee water 50 years down the road is to start going the desalination route. And since it'll take twenty odd years to get that entire infrastructure in place, the longer we wait, the more critical it will become to put down.


We know it's been dry, we can see the SD fires etc.

But there isn't much in terms of water bans still.

Driving I 5 from Norcal to Socal, the irrigation troves are still all full.

Water in many places is recycled, there is just more to this.

Now 50 years, heck even 10, well all bets are off. Who knows? For a long time the North East was having very mild winters and then walla, they aren't. Just need a normal rainy season this winter and no one knows if it will be or not. Chances are imo it will, since it happens more than not. But when you don't have one... it gets projected out.

One of Amazon's biggest issues is the fact that turnover at all levels, but particularly in management, is endemic. Sometimes things end up falling to end-line people and new hires simply because nobody knows who else to turn to, and you end up with the perverse issue where, in some parts of the company, veteran low-level people are more knowledgeable about what is going on than their supervisors (simply because they've been around long enough to witness most situations before).

I wonder how they can have any real success like that. And how Wall Street is ok fueling that chaos.

Why should it cost more on this new gen? To me they should have better tools each year. Motion capture the same as it has been. CGI the same. Moving pixels, same. In fact they should be able to save a little not having to work as hard to optimize on better HW. I think it's phooey, managers should be seeing the trends and several should be down-scaling some and fitting games into the new budget.

They can't really make something more awesome than what PC's have been able to handle for years.

Held back by 2 barrel last gen systems, would have been nice all next gen based.

eh, speak for yourself - i thought the FC3 engine was damn good enough.. ran super solid with a couple ini tweaks

its most likely unchanged for the most part, given this turnaround time.. used primarily if not exclusively as content creation only

Still be even better if it weren't bound by 512 meg of unified memory.

I do speak for myself.

I'm going to see if I can get my Mississippi Smith 1982 game for the Atari PC's ported over. I have a shot with this liberal Greenlight program.

Man give me driver-less cars any day, that shit cannot come fast enough.

Im not looking forward to that. I enjoy driving way too much.

There will still be an option, we are a long time away from only driver-less. I agree, can't wait, this is one tech that does make me giddy.

"Watch Dogs runs at 900p on PS4, 792p on Xbox One
Ubisoft confirms 30 frames per second on both systems"

So much for "next-gen".

Those pieces of crap are so underpowered its not even funny. -_-

No shit, imo an embarrassing joke of a generation. I'd say compatible incremental updated by end of 2015. Better CPU and GPU.

Poll: 50% of Netflix Users Would Cancel Over $2 Rate Hike.

MWAHAHAHAHAHA. All part of the plan, all part of the plan.

Your's truly, Comcast.

I was thinking the part of the plan you were angling to see the stock tank again, bet on it going down making money and then make money back on the rebound. Like their increase a few years back.

Netflix is built on cable cutters in many cases, a customer base of penny pinchers. This has to be a wall street issue at some point. They can't make a LOT of money because its model is based on being the cheap alternative.

Community can help? Even though you don't believe in community mods. Want cake and eat EA? Stick it. Whatever you do don't ever show a good faith sign to your past customers, never fucking think of doing something so insane. Jack ass.

Ahhh... typical Bluesnews. Bashing the hell out of a title even though they haven't played it or they barely played it.

This game is very satisfying to those of us who like MMOs and want a new one to play. It has similarities to WoW and it differs significantly.

I love MMO's, and play or have played most of them. After trying Wildstar again today I don't have anything positive to say about it, and I usually at least kind of like practically anything that's competent. Aside from the art and animations there really isn't anything I enjoyed about in my time I spent with it, and it still has the worst UI of any game I've played in recent memory even after they updated it.

I want to like it but really, really can't get into it at all. This game was hyped all to hell and it just sucks.

So far I'm leaning this way. It isn't really smooth, I get good frames but it isn't smooth when rapid turning and it puts me off. Combat just seems meh so far, the ground signals even for our output is just too much extra gfx to distract. I'll give a few more evenings though. The opening tutorial is poor. Player movement speed seems slow.

Here's a glimpse of the future:

Prerelease - Massive hype. "This is the WoW killer!"
Release - Game sells (downloads?) VERY WELL. 1 million plus.
Immediately after release - Game has launch problems and bugs. Game has downtime.
After first month - Internet turns against game. Vast majority quit playing after first month.
Rest of game's life - Games floats on cruise control.

Most likely, but one thing we have under-estimated from some of the big names that didn't hit it huge, was that cruise control can still be very profitable and over a long period of time. Where we make fun of some still today, they are still making bank each month, not as big as hoped but it will easily pay off as a long term win.

Yeah knowing a little more about the story it's not as bad as first thought, they are looking for further development, obviously this one got sideways on them. I read the total against side of this as just more I hate EA. I hate Greenlight. I like both, these games shouldn't be breaking the bank and if you research and take the risk, you should be ok with the whole idea. Some will always fail.
