This whole "networks upload for free" thing I've seen mentioned twice now in this thread...

What networks are you guys talking about? The vast majority require you to log in with your cable subscription account.

I'll buy it when/if it comes out.

As for crowd-funding, I'm done. Not one game I backed has been released, even though a couple of them were supposed to be out by now.

I got FTL, Leisure Suit Larry, Shadowrun, Ravaged, Grim Dawn.
And very soon the beta of Broken Age Part 1 starring Elijah Wood, Wil Wheaton, and Jack Black

That mod is ridonkulous. The guy took the models/animations from RE4 and ported them all over into sprites???

hahaha omg. That is insane. I love the neck breaker animation.

Also gives me flashbacks of playing that mercenary mode for like a year straight in college. A group of friends and I 5 starred every level with every character and it wasn't easy (especially since none of us are really console gamers).

I guess I'm the only one that thinks this looks like it's going to be great. I'm excited to play something that's not from DICE and isn't CoD.

Didn't they just end their Autumn sale TWO WEEKS ago? They need to plan these things a bit better.
Well they were making sure to have something going on during Black Friday. But I agree that the timing between the various sales is still kind of poor. Now there won't be another sale for 7-8 months.

But Spring Cleaning Sale!

And while I'm sick of both parties the republicans DID put forth their own versions but the liberals, like always, are steamrollers of an intentionally naive ideology at any cost.

What did they put forward? I'd be interested in seeing it.

He didn't seem to realize what people were arguing with him about. But, clearly, people with darker skin are more at risk for a vitamin d deficiency than those with lighter skin.

You're giving him the benefit of the doubt. If he didn't know why he was wrong then he has a reading comprehension problem because Agent.X7 explained it with the first reply.

In fact, a one second search of the web would show you that it has been theorized that people with darker skin tones are actually MORE at risk of being vitamin D deficient.

edit: Dammit... I keep forgetting that Agent.X7 and ASeven are not the same dude. Sorry sirs.

And the Vitamin D really only applies to white people - or those of northern European descent.

Not true. You're wrong. Give it up.

Here's the teaser for Christopher Nolan's upcoming film Interstellar. I really like the feeling this evokes, and Nolan seldom disappoints. Looking forward to it.

That trailer didn't really do much for me but reading the wiki article for the film did. Yay Nolan sci-fi!

We're living 'The Terminator' right now, Google just bought up Boston Dynamics. I don't know how they can make a movie feel shocking when every day we're one step closer to making it a reality, and everyone is completely indifferent to it.

What the fuck... why?
I'm surprised the DoD is okay with that. I wonder if they'll keep their military focus. And if they don't isn't the military losing a bit on this deal?

edit: Welp this article addressed my questions

Certainly that tech has numerous civilian applications.

Oh I don't doubt that but it's just a weird move for Google to buy up a defense contractor.
They said they'd finish up the contracts but wouldn't be going that direction afterwards... so who is going to make the military robots? Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are others and probably some secret ones, but Boston Dynamics seemed to be leagues ahead of everyone else.

You are entirely too focused on my "watch it on youtube" jab.

At least you finally seem to understand what I said.

All I've ever been focused on is the stupid thing you said.
You've been trying to play it off like it wasn't stupid.

Sense of accomplishment is subjective.
There's not really anything more to be said beyond that.
Your opinion is that quick saving ruins the sense of accomplishment.
But you state that opinion as fact over and over and suggest that people using quick saves might as well not be playing the game at all.

That's because there can be no accomplishment when you cheese your way around challenges.

If you bypass the challenge of a game by saving your progress every 3 minutes, then what are you doing? Walking through the game essentially... which could easily be done on youtube.

This is like, a life lesson.

If I said "less of an accomplishment", instead of "no accomplishment" would you have even said anything?

No because you're still wrong and still acting like your personal opinions are facts.
Also do you imagine quick save teleports you past challenges? You realize that if you quick save in front of a challenge that when you quick load the challenge is still there right?
The game still has to be played... that's why your notion that you might as well watch it on youtube is so asinine.

You implied that there wasn't a sense of accomplishment if you beat a game using quick saves. That's idiotic. That's why I responded the way I did.

That may be how you feel about quick saves but that's not how your post was worded. You suggested that people using quick save should just watch the game on youtube. That's stupid.

Then you made a bunch of assumptions about me based on a parody post and a second post that consisted only of your own quotes.

"Yeah guys. Using quick save is like watching someone else play!"
"A real sense of accomplishment can only possibly come by playing the game with 0 saves. If you die start over at the beginning. Doing it any other way is invalid and you can't possibly enjoy it. Facts."

Ok I can understand the confusion then.

Half Life is packed with "non-linear exploration". Most of the areas in "On A Rail" exist only to find extra health and ammo, which you can skip over entirely. You can miss 75% of that section of the game if you stick to the main path.

Most modern games like the last dozen Call of Duties have nothing like that. The Shadow Warrior reboot did a good job in trying to go back in the right direction.

I feel like this particular kind of non-linear exploration still shows up a lot. It's the "figure out where the game wants you to go, and then go the other way to pick up sweet, sweet loot" thing that makes up like 60% of the Dead Space games, rather than the "map is so damn big it's easy to get lost and have to stop and figure out where you're supposed to be going" in, say, Duke Nukem 3D, DOOM, System Shock or Dark Forces.

It's a valid way to do things, but in Dead Space it got especially ridiculous, and I don't think a game that expects players to pretend to actually worry about their objectives is automatically dumber.

Yeah that's why it was neat that Bioshock: Infinite (and I think a few others) add that "don't go this way yet" arrow effect at a button press.

If you quick save in "a bad spot" you deserve to be frustrated for trying to cheat in the first place.

Problem for me is usually a brainfart where I'm trying quick load and accidentally quick save. "Oh great now my quick load is me in the middle of falling to my death."
