I missed captures on one for wiper blades and another that I've seen occasionally come up that's a little survey panel at the bottom-center of the page, I haven't been able to identify the advertiser on that one.

Goddamn that Polaris one is so annoying! Always right as I'm clicking on a thread link on the "Forums Index > News Comments" page... "BUMM BUMMM BUMM!" Sorry adblock is going back on.

so she steals and deletes analytics and marketing data (probably to cover up for her own failings) and then cries wolf to get some extra severance pay or at least as insurance against litigation. Which appears to have worked. At a risk of being called a chauvinist, fuck that lying bitch.

I don't see where people are getting the "lying" stuff from. Wardell admitted that he says inappropriate things in the office. Miseta agreed to call off her own lawsuit because there was no way she could win against Stardock's (unrelated in court) lawsuit. She wrote an apology letter that did not recant her claims of sexual harassment and did not admit willful destruction of Stardock property, it simply said she was sorry for the way things turned out. That apology letter was required by Stardock/Wardell for them to drop their lawsuit against her. "Dismissed with prejudice" in these lawsuits were a stipulation of the settlement negotiations not necessarily a determination of the judge(s).

News Comments > Stardock Lawsuits Settled
15. Re: Stardock Lawsuits Settled Sep 24, 2013, 20:34 Sepharo
 
The suits were settled because Stardock would win the laptop / deleting marketing data suit easily. Miseta's suit was on shakier ground but it doesn't mean she lied about the sexual harassment. Very smart move by Wardell asking for the apology instead of money though. That made Miseta's decision easy... Get definitely sued for big money with only a chance of winning a long and difficult sexual harassment suit or write an apology note and not get definitely sued for big money. That's why Stardock's lawyers were so confident.

All of the games were actually very strange. All 3 weeks this year have been odd and I am sure someone is making a ton of money in Vegas, and the majority of people are losing a ton. Miami is 3-0 WTF!?

Yeah, it's been nuts. Miami is 3-0. The Lions are 3-0. The Vikings, Giants, and Pittsburgh are all 0-3. San Fran is 1-2, they're worse than the Jets right now. It's like football bizarro-world...even if the Vikings are a question mark with Ponder, losing to the Lions (even if they're better than they used to be) and the Browns in the first three weeks is....well.


I'm glad the site issues are taken care of, way too many sites over the years have disappeared on me with just a blip like that :(

Lions are actually 2-1. Lost to the Cardinals.

Is there aimsupport? I'm relatively new to consoles and their fucking controls. I'm playing The Last of Us and ANY TIME I get into a gunfight I just charge toward the fuckers to bash their heads in. Aiming in that game is terribly hard and unforgiving -- aim a milimeter offtarget and you actually miss! That's perfect in PC games ofc, but fuck me it's frustrating with a controller.

So, again.. Does GTAV have any kind of aim support / auto aim? ^^

It has a snap to auto aim when you initially enter aiming mode but that goes away if you adjust. Also there's plenty of time where it's not available like sniper rifles, certain missions, seems like every now and then I can get it when firing from a vehicle but most of the time it's not there.

There's a lot of actions to perform, I think they did a great job fitting them all onto a controller.

Messing with the phone while driving kind of makes me chuckle each time I do it. You can do everything on it while in motion but if you bring up the browser it take up the full screen. Driving on the highway, "Hang on gotta check on my stock portfolio" hear all the cars honking behind me

The fact that it ran as smooth and flawlessly as it did on the decrepit PS3 is incredible. In fact, the only time I ever get framerate issues is when I'm in the harbor in the mini sub and the crazy waves get going again.


On 512 meg of ram, can you believe that? I can't...

I've not noticed any issues with framerate, but I admit that when I'm playing, I'm concentrating a lot more on the action than a fremarate drop.

One frame rate drop that is extremely noticeable is driving the sub around on the surface.

I'm totally on board with everything you said and understand what they're trying to accomplish. What I'm looking to avoid however is something like Dear Esther. The Amnesia sequel is getting awfully close to that.

Quantic Dream's games have had a lot of quick time style events and button pressing / gestures to advance the game, where Frictional hasn't had stuff like that but they've had more puzzle oriented game play. As those two developers have released more games they've cut down on both but they haven't replaced it with anything else. What I'd really like to see is a combination of the two aspects some actually challenging puzzles beyond pulling levers and some gestures that are more natural and less button sequences. I love the drawer and door opening in Frictional's games (which they've been reducing unfortunately) but pulling that off on console controller's is a little more difficult. When I talk about simplification I don't want to restrict that just to the player's agility with the controls but to whether the game is challenging on a puzzle aspect. "What do I need to do to accomplish my goal?" I'd like that to be more than, push this button or talk to this person.

But yes the cinema style story and experience combined with the ability to make choices and affect the story line are primarily what I go for.

Hmm that's kind of odd because I've done random encounters like that before where the dot starts out red. But some of them are blinking.

While I have your attention do you know what the point of the gray dots are? Examples in spoiler tags Jesus, a mime, Impotent Rage Man. Are you supposed to do anything with them or do you just talk to them and that's it?

I am very much looking forward to Two Souls. I have always been a huge fan of Quantic Dream. I own and enjoyed all of their previous games...even The Indigo Prophecy.

Same here. Though I liked the name Fahrenheit better

Though I do worry about the simplification of their games.

They're a lot like Frictional Games (Penumbra, Amnesia) where it seems that the more success they have and the more mainstream their games get the less "gameplay" there is.

nin what does it mean if the dot is blinking between red and blue? Some start out red, other start out blue, but if it's blinking red and blue and they're a mugger how can I "help" them?

Yeah I didn't realize there ever was a charge for this game.

GOG is now offering free games for free! Hooray!

edit: Huh I didn't realize this game was from 1995. I figured it was just done in a retro style on SCUMM like Beneath a Steel Sky.

edit2: lol Beaneath a Steel Sky is apparently from 1994. I guess I'm just getting owned today on a genre I'm supposedly an expert on.

Did they ever get around to fixing the original game yet? I know they had a few patches, but last I heard there were still many problems.

This one doesn't have the size upgrades, but I'm sure they are coming.

Every patch claims to fix the traffic. So each patch invalidates the claim of the previous.
