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.

I love RPS, but Jesus RPS, way to jump on the "let's whine about this some more" bandwagon after a fucking week.

It takes a long time to look up all those words in the thesaurus to write an article that demeans PA as immature children without sounding like one yourself.

Their mistake was giving it any credence or attention in the first place IMO.

Yep right from the very beginning.
I disagree with responding but I can't really say I disagree with the content of the responses.

"Krahulik closed out PAX by suggesting that his one big regret was pulling PAs ill-advised official Dickwolves merchandise back in the day [.]"

That's misleading. What actually happened was Robert Khoo was interviewing the PA guys and asked them to be brutally honest with their answers. The questions covered sensitive issues like their finances and their families. He then asked Gabe to name a time that he (Khoo) made a mistake. Khoo is a nearly perfect being so it's a tough question but Mike answered "pulling the Dickwolves shirt" and Khoo agreed with him and so did the audience and so did I after reading about it.

There are people out there who think that mentioning "rape" means you support/like rape and those people are incredibly wrong. They kicked up a shit storm over an innocuous comic and PA poked fun at them (people who think "rape" can't be part of a joke) and then they claimed that what PA was doing amounted to attacking rape victims. The controversy could have died out at any point and the only mistake was keeping it in the limelight. That's why removing the shirt was a mistake because it was another step in keeping the controversy relevant, it said, "Yes, you're right our shirt is an attack on rape victims" which was never the case. Unfortunately Mike's answer at PAX revived the whole thing again so now there has to be 100 articles like this tripe.

It's kind of weird that this iFruit app that I need to train my GTA dog is an actual real phone app and not one for the phone in the game. But it's absurd that it's not ready for Android yet. A game they spent years and 250 million creating but they can't get a tie in app ready for release day on a platform that has no approval process...

Honestly, the 20 minutes I spent with it? You didn't miss much...

But... my dog is bad...

I have a friend in Michigan who's got tens of years in IT plus being the smartest person I know, bar none, and he can't get his foot in the door after four years of trying...

Do you mean IT as in system administrator / networking / desktop support ? Or as in software development. Because getting a job in software development is that easy right now, (at least in this area). I couldn't say for IT but I would assume it's lower considering the ratio of IT to developer at my company. I don't know anyone with a computer science degree without a job right now.

My anecdotal evidence about my friends and facebook contacts was spread across all kinds of industry. Retail, sales, real estate, police, public utilities, nurse. A lot of them were out of work for a while or never had a job out of college for the past few years. I think it seems kind of obvious that older workers are getting left out here. It's a sad reality but we're looking at a generation that's getting a later start in their careers because of the recession and at the same time older workers hanging around longer than they would have without it.

The Netherlands (more commonly referred to by Americans as: Holland.)

I haven't heard an American call it Holland in a long time. More likely just to call it or refer to "Amsterdam" specifically.

That's because a good portion of folks can't find jobs -- not because of any company turnaround.

It's terribad out there for a ton of people despite the media spin spin spin. Ask your recent graduates, your neighbors, etc -- get out once in while, turn off the spin, and find out for yourself.

Well since you're citing anecdotal evidence I will as well. Lately my facebook feed (I'm sure you'll get a chuckle out of that as well) is full of people my age (27ish) getting decent paying jobs. Mostly in Michigan but also Colorado and Arizona seem to be hotspots for my friends too. I had a friend who was low level management at a warehouse who got let go in early 2012 and was out of a job until just a few weeks ago. He said that after more than a year of no offers he suddenly had multiple offers to choose from in August.

I've been pretty lucky with them. The only reason I went with the R* warehouse this time was it was either them or lamestop. And I feel dirty when I shop there...

Amazon had the collectors edition too. Unless you're getting some edition I don't know about.

I just had a Polaris and Lee jeans (on the side ad) at the same time both were rollovers with video and sound. The polaris one is very frequent and being at the top seems to always pop up.

Blue, I just got another roll over video ad! It's for polaris snowmobiles. I keep getting it when I reload the site. Heres a link to a screen shot of it. [url=]http://imgur.com/HOVDGnA[/url] This ad is super annoying because I don't even have to roll the cursor over the ad to triger it.

Also I don't trust liquid cooling. I still remember the days when they weren't as reliable as they are now. One pin hole and your computer just went through the car wash.

Yeah I've been getting a bunch lately. Seems like a quarter of the ads are popout rollovers suddenly.

I believe that if anything ever visits Earth it's going to be machine / AI of a long dead civilization. I think it will be indifferent to life, just simply looking for resources. Perhaps those resources are more easily harvested from asteroids. Or maybe it will just stop by and suck up our atmosphere into holding tanks.

Presumably by the time you have the capacity to either do FTL or send a completely autonomous harvester into interstellar space, you will have the ability to transform energy into matter, thus making the nearest gas giant / sun a far better source for your needs.

Also, hauling resources across interstellar distances would be beyond insanity.

Oh I didn't mean for shipping purposes. They'd be using those resources on the spot for themselves. Just lifeless machines spreading because it's in their programming.
