History backs me up.

Just fine? If by that you mean that humanity will survive, you are probably correct. I wouldn't call it 'just fine' though. I doubt that people in Syria and Iraq are doing 'just fine'. I doubt that the people in Ukraine are doing all that great. We never learn from history, we are colossal fuck-ups. Its not, just fine.

No I was replying your post about decaying culture and devolving species. Neither of which are true.

Tim and Moly are similar in many ways, and in a sense, share the same basic failing. They are both highly creative, artistic people, with very little to buffer them. The kinds of things Peter says are the kinds of things I say to myself when I'm planning a novel or working on one of my own games. "Wow, this puzzle game is great, but maybe it would be better with a crafting system?" "Oh man, what if this character is actually the main character from the future who has come back but he is hiding his identity?" You kind of HAVE to go to this crazy space where anything can happen, it's just what comes natural.

At some point you either get lucky, or have enough other forces working as a project goes on to keep you grounded. With both Godus and Broken Age, the projects were public far too soon in the dev process, while things are still in the "anything can happen!" phase of creation. And not enough was done to ground them.

It's weird how people talk about Broken Age like it's some unfulfilled game. It has everything and more that they promised the only hitch was that they released it in two parts. I'm definitely looking forward to part 2 because it's longer and more difficult and part 1 was already very good.

out of idle curiosity, what's a largish breed that's basically a lazy bum and is otherwise low maintenace (low shedding, no slobbering, etc).

You sound like a possible candidate for a rescue Greyhound. They are apparently quite content to be couch potatoes after all the athletics.

I'm not sure if the Boxer recommendation was a joke, but to my experience they are pretty crazy.

They're energetic within their own space. They're family guard dogs so they're gentle with children and other pets. But they're a large breed that doesn't shed (well not like a long hair dog sheds) or slobber and they spend most of the day loafing about.

Here are some videos, showing their restrained energy:

I've got no personal experience from which to draw, I'm just going by what's said about the breed. A lot of what you describe sounds right, I'm just not sure that it's "basically a lazy bum."

Boxers are a bright, energetic and playful breed and tend to be very good with children.[4] They are patient and spirited with children but also protective, making them a popular choice for families.[4] They are active, strong dogs and require adequate exercise to prevent boredom-associated behaviors such as chewing, digging, or licking. Boxers have earned a slight reputation of being "headstrong," which can be related to inappropriate obedience training.

Like Creston said, you take them for a walk (or throw a ball down the steps 20 times) and they sleep for 6 hours

Also I've seen them burn energy running laps in the backyard and come in drink some water and take a nap. My family has always had boxers, and most of the time two at once. Can't speak for all boxers but the ones I know aren't barkers, shedders, droolers, they don't harass your guests, sleep like 75% of the day. Every now and then I think about getting a different breed but then I feel like I'd miss out on the Boxer quirks and that face

Well, some of us are older. We remember back when PC video games were more about making something awesome to share than making mega bucks. Sure, iD wanted to make money to pay themselves, but Wolfenstien and Doom and shit were made to be awesome for people to play with the benefit of making money.

Now? Games are made to make millions, and we just pray there's some fun in there somewhere.

It's human nature. Motion pictures, video games - all art is eventually co-opted by corporations for the express purpose of making them money. It's why a lot of first time film makers have these great films that inspire us and then they are zombified by the Hollywood machine and come up with shit for ever after.

This is such garbage and you know it.

You remind me of baby boomers who say that everything was better back in the 1950's. you're remembering a world that never existed, you're deluded with a combination of rose-lensed nostalgia glasses, and intense hatred for everything currently in front of you. maybe you always wanted to become a fireman or a policeman, and you didn't, you rue and lament your list life, and of simpler times. As now all you're qualified to do is manufacture hyperbole on message boards.

"Do you remember the time when people didn't work for money?"
*projectile vomit*

Your recent discovery of the shift key has done wonders for your posts. Keep working towards that 100% compliance. Also I was with you until you got to the personal insults / career hopes speculation.

You are right, Nin. WAY too many people get pets without any thought into what effort will be required to care for the pet.

Dogs are cool, but I have no desire to "clean up" after one of them. Not too mention the issue with them needing to go out when there's snow on the ground and/or its zero degrees out.

Want to see low skill ceiling games? Modern FPS and MMO's. But i guess it's just cool to hate MOBA's

Not that I agree with Suppa7... but now you're going the opposite direction and saying that (modern) FPS are low skill ceiling games? I think you must be confusing terms, FPS have a low barrier to entry, it's easy to hop in, learn the game relatively quickly, but the skill ceiling is very high. How's that saying go? Easy to become proficient but difficult to master... something like that.

MOBAs tend to have a high barrier to entry. There are specific strategies you need to know about if you ever hope to win a game or just simply not be yelled at by your team.

Skill ceiling really high? FPS are about reflexes mostly - now compare the pace of modern MMO's with Quake. Modern FPS's in general are garbage, designed for console kiddies with aim assist, and where multiplayer is an afterthought to the linear singleplayer campaign, cutscenes, and marketing.

Watch Dendi play dota, the game simply has way more complexity and thought process than any FPS game could ever dream of, plus it also requires amazing reflexes to boot.

Wonder why the top 100 e-sport earners are pretty much all MOBA or RTS players and not FPS'ers? And why 9 out the top 10 earners are from dota 2 and not CS? Nope, neither do i cause it's pretty damn obvious.

Only on bluesnews are MOBA considered 'easy mode' games.

Hey way to miss the point of my post. I didn't say anything about reflex or skill involved in MOBA. If anything I agree with you by saying that MOBA has a high-barrier to entry.

Look, I don't generally have a problem with preorders. If people wanna preorder a great PC game like The Witcher 3, fine. It is well established that CDP does give two shits about PC gamers and they don't do any shady backroom exclusivity deals or withhold their games from PC gamers for no other reason than LA HOLY MOOLAH.

But arrogant assholes like Rockstar should not be rewarded for their treatment of PC gamers. It was pathetic how they went out of their way to avoid saying whether there would even be a PC version at all. They played PC gamers like a fat cat a wounded mouse. Their entire conduct was outright disgusting and now all they want from their precious GTA V is to cash in on PC gamers one last time.

All I'm saying is don't reward them with a preorder. Show'em some pride, some spine and some integrity. Show them you don't appreciate being sneered at. Don't bend over. That is all.

This makes no sense. GTAV is a known product, both the originals and enhanced edition. The PC version was even delayed ostensibly to get it right. Preordering is a pretty low risk.

Witcher 3 is a brand new game that hasn't even come out yet. Who knows if it's good or not. Or even optimized. Witcher 2 was buggy and unoptimized when it came out. Preordering this is more risky, IMO.

He hasn't posted any clue that he's aware of the enhanced edition. All indications are that he thinks this is the version that launched in September 2013 and not the one that just launched in November 2014 (plus more PC enhancements on top of that).

Also, I haven't pre-ordered this either but I'm likely going to buy it day 1. I guess I miss out on some slight discount.

Why the fuck would people pre-ordering GTAV, a series with a very strong track record for excellent games (even if the IV port was shit), get your panties in such a bunch? Did rockstar defile you recently in some kind of way you'd like to talk about? Releasing the game a year later on PC really has you *that* shocked and disgusted? It's not like people are dumping money into some unknown early access title, its fucking GTAV. Get over it.

Everyone is responding to one troll who derailed this. Nobody but him has a problem with GTAV (at least in this thread).

Ungrateful pricks. It's a fucking free service! They don't even have to provide it. Jesus Christ, IF mankind survives for next few centuries historians will come to classify this period of history as the 'self-entitlement era'. Fucking honestly! Rolleyes

I hope not. "Self-entitlement" is some redundant nonsense. "Entitled" is fine.

Also, it looks like it peaked in 1999. But maybe there's an uptick in the missing data past 2008. http://goo.gl/28nTQU

Oh I'd be gone a long time ago if that was the case. I figure they're just looking to give us a little more freedom. It was silly to block a specific category when you can waste time on a multitude of other sites.
