I wish I ran a business where my job was to tell other businesses how to do my job for me.

On the flip side you can make it all the way to maximum levels without buying anything. You won't have the highest DPS in combat but that isn't going to stop you from doing anything unless you want to PVP and STO is really not about the PVP.

I liked it pretty well, but I'm past the hardcore viewpoint a lot of gamers cling to. That was just ruining my fun.

Now that the ground combat is better it's actually pretty fun for a free to play game. It's not the most "Trek feeling" game out there, but you'd have to go back and play the ancient Interplay games for that.

Ouya could probably carve itself out a little niche in the hobby electronics and educational markets.

I couldn't tell much difference between a DX10 game and a DX11 game and after a while I just stopped paying attention to DirectX in general. It's a background thing and my games are probably going to look the same anyway.

I'm still glad DirectX exists but it's hard for me to get excited about it.

About being whiny or not...

I think people wanted it to be:

"I can share my game library, they can then play a game from my llibrary that I am not playing". (Cool!)

That is it.

Not "They can't play any game from my library when I am playing anything at all.". (Limiting.)

So it works in the world of "I can play something from yours when you are off doing something else in life". (Again Limiting)

Yet it works EXACTLY HOW THEY SAID IT WOULD FROM THE BEGINNING!

It does, which sucks, which is why people are complaining and have been since the beta even started.

But hey, keep yelling, I'm sure somebody is impressed by your all-caps white-knighting of a multinational corporation. They really, really need your support I'm sure.

This is the biggest non-family non-sharing POS that anyone has ever come out with. LOL.

Can two users share a library and both play at the same time?
No, a shared library may only be accessed by one user at a time.


That makes it totally worthless.

I don't really get why DN is still even a valuable franchise. It's a paper-thin plot with nostalgia value for people who probably have kids and don't game that much anymore. Make something else.

Indie games are the future of video games until the indies get big and then it's corporate games part 2 (or 3 or 4). We've already been through this cycle.

Ah 3D movies. Why wouldn't you want to spend 2 hours fiddling with uncomfortable glasses that sort of work and sort of give you eye strain?

ISPs could probably throttle 5% of their customer base and shave off 90% of their traffic. Instead they'll throttle everyone and of course you'll pay more.

I did a few Greenlight voting things and then decided that it was just a grade school popularity contest. You had to be better at marketing than making games to get green lit.

That ESO article was pretty bad. He used a chart with numbers some guy pulled out of his butt, then tore it down. You don't get much more "straw man" than that.

Yeah. It seems like kids end up with the library DVDs a lot and they end up scratched up way before their time. My DVD library doesn't seem to have a longevity problem.

I am not sure I can tell a difference between 4k and 1080p at the distance I usually sit from the TV. I guess I'd have to see it in person. The thing is I just got around to finally getting a decent HD screen last year so I don't plan on reinvesting for a while. I guess by then 4k will be cheap and standard and I won't care.
