I dunno. I thought Star Trek Online was pretty fun. It might not have been the best Star Trek game ever or the best MMO ever but it had its moments and some of the missions were good - and improvements are still being made. I still crank it up sometimes and am thinking about doing so again for the Christmas event.

The savings automation brings should be put back into the social net, not into some CEO's pocket.

That is the problem we've had forever though. The wealthy accumulate wealth and do everything they can to avoid paying. Google was just in the news for using tax havens to avoid paying taxes. They were even proud of it. That's the crap that needs to get sorted out That's the real discussion to have.

News Comments > Free Duke Nukem 3D Kicks Off GOG.com Sale

I started to gripe about GOG using DOSBox and that I could do the same thing myself for free. Then I realized that I'm far to lazy for that, I don't want to have to buy a USB floppy drive, set anything up, remember how to drivers high, or find the stupid code wheel for Star Control.

Good game, GOG. Good game.

I wish they had the Magic Candle series or maybe Wizardry.

I am kind of tempted by the Might and Magic 6 pack.

Wikipedia was fun for a while but most of the information I see there now is stale, wrong, contentious, or just bone-headed. It's better to go to specialist sites and/or read real academic journals if you want to learn anything. It's not even good as starting point anymore.

It's sad but it seems like they had every chance to succeed.

I hope ATI doesn't fail though. It's going to suck if there's only one video chip manufacturer and one CPU manufacturer..

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition & Free DLC

I almost bought this but noticed that it didn't have the kind of ship customization you get in GalCiv 2 (where you can customize ships out of parts for a new look). Then I saw it didn't have random galaxies either. That combined with all the hating fanboys in every post I read on the Steam forums sort of put a bad taste in my mouth. I'm still kind of interested though and twenty bucks isn't bad. Can't decide.

I did run across one called Stardrive that has almost everything I want, but it doesn't appear to be out yet. I might check that later.

I'm sort of interested in Distant Worlds too, but the price they charge for that game (when you add up all the addons) tied to the dated appearance isn't entirely enticing.

I like smartphones but the way they charge for data is stupid. I had to sign up for a gig plan on my phone and I might use 200 megs a month on a busy month. It's more expensive because they like it that way and won't make enough tiers to support everyone's real needs.

I looked at Amazon on Cyber Monday and didn't really see any awesome deals there. I used to get really crazy deals online when retailers were still trying to lure people in. Now the deals are okay but not crazy.

How is Google going to patrol the billions of links it has. If it misses even one they get a lawsuit? That'd just turn into a lawyer free for all. It's bogus.

News Comments > Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?

So some mobo company will solder chips to a board and then that board will plug into a motherboard.

But honestly, when was the last time anyone built a gaming rig and then decided "I want to upgrade just the cpu?"

I guess this might affect overclockers, but it seems to me that most of the benefits of overclocking were wiped away a few years ago. I never even think about it anymore.

There were some pretty good deals around, but I didn't go out anywhere for anything. I found them all online. slickdeals.net pretty much tells you where to go to get what you want. If it's not listed there then it probably wasn't on sale.

I got rear-ended by some woman who was texting while driving. I'm sick of people being so caught up on the net that they can't take 5 minutes to drive properly. If your life is that busy ride a bus or hire a taxi..

So the solution is for Croteam not to make their next game a tiled app and sell it on Steam instead of through the MS Store. You know, like since time began. It works fine.

If it's Guy Fieri - a dude who is a chef, has his own TV show, owns several restaurants, and promotes charities VS. some dude who eats food and talks about it on a newspaper I'm gonna have to go with Guy.
