I've been deep in the timesink known as Elite: Dangerous. It's not on Steam. Kbai.

Steam has turned into the equivalent of Apple for indie developers. Valve has WAY too many restrictions on joining their network, the least of which Valve gets a hefty cut of every game sold.

I'm a Veteran backer since 1/22/2013 (back when SC had around $5.5M)
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizens/HydraClawe

I've drop $930.00. I own these ships: Cutlass, Aurora, Freelancer, 350R, M50, Hornet Ghost, Avenger, Starfarer, Herald

I'm not dropping another dime on this game until Chris tells HOW MUCH TOTAL he needs to make this game. It feel like a money sink.

13. Blizzard's Overwatch Jan 2, 2015, 02:51 Kxmode
 
Everyone was trying to predict what "Titan" was from Blizzard's 10K filing. On March 4, 2010 I predicted the following on BluesNews...


You're thinking too small. Look at the larger picture. What multiplayer genre is hot right now? First-person shooters. It also happens to be an untapped genre within the MMO sphere. I’m not discrediting Planetside, Global Agenda, and trivial Asian titles but I am saying there’s no one game pulling people like WOW does. Blizzard has never made a FPS title. I think they're ready to branch out into new ground both literally and figuratively. I believe Blizzard's Nextgen MMO will be a FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER.

Mark today's date! You heard it from me first. Just wait...


Over 4 years later Blizzard releases a trailer for Overwatch; a multiplayer FPS. While Overwatch is not an MMO as I had predicted this article clearly shows that Blizzard's cancelled MMO Titan eventually became Overwatch.

This is the second time I've predicted correctly Blizzard releases. The first was Wrath of the Lich King a few days after TBC was released. Although I believe at the time I called it World of Warcraft: Northrend.

To all the naysayers who didn't believe me when I predicted Titan as a FPS MMO and Wrath of the Lich King: you can go suck it. That's 2 correct Blizzard predictions.

Having been slightly too young to be an Ultima person, would it be reasonable to attempt Ultima VII, or is it simply too old?

I would say the Google map makes the experience a little more modern.

Has anyone played Galaxiae? It's former shareware but now a free game. It looks like Elite mixed with some sort of RTS.

Electronic Arts issues their promised Q1 2012 fiscal results, showing a smaller loss for the period than the company had projected based thanks to digital distribution and strong sales of Valve's Portal 2.

Wait. Back up. When did EA acquire Valve? Did I miss this? I thought Valve was independent?

Don't see how they will be able to explain a buggy, incomplete or poor port for the PC, with all this cash and man hours going to these extremely expensive pr videos.

So it must be perfect.
People like you are not this publisher's top priority. Actually, most publishers don't consider you a top priority.
I'm just glad the video industry has you to speak for it. I know the world is a little better off with you talking and thinking for it. As a matter of fact, we're all just glad you can speak and type.

Oh come now. There's no need to fight with words. You two should hug it out. Go on, hug. Do it... for science! Hug

Thx, just checked them out... electro is a much better fit really. My mind envisions simple, harsh music with electronic and occasional organic elements, competing in tension like augmentations vs. "purity" in the human body.

"Seduction Of Canned Laughter" did have analog and digital elements. Nevertheless... "electronic and occasional organic elements, competing in tension like augmentations vs. 'purity' in the human body." Hmmm... how about these?

Hybrid - Empire (Orchestral Edit) My top choice! Perfect theme for Sarif Industries
Architect - The Shadow of Eve
Trentemøller - Evil Dub

Noteworthy
Elite Force - You
Architect - Wachsmut

we know how the borg evolved mostly it was an merger between a human and the voyager probe.

There's too many rumors or conflicting ideas but none of them are official. A film or television series by Paramount would pretty much make whatever origin they decide on canon.

Great clip.. the music they used is a bit weak though. Doesn't seem to fit the message or the "universe" IMHO.

For your consideration I recommend "Seduction Of Canned Laughter" by Teargas & Plateglass or "Light #1" by Nosaj Thing. In your mind overlap the music with the video. I'm too lazy to do it with Vegas. Besides I don't want those augmented Eidos lawyers to rip me a new hole... cause you know they will. o_o

@MajorD - No problem! While watching the video the Borg origins was the first thing that came to mind. It would interesting if a movie was made to tell the story of the "humble" beginnings of the Borg and how they evolved. Or perhaps Paramount could create a off-shoot television series. Perhaps the title could be Star Trek Origins: Borg. I know this did not work well for X-men Origins: Wolverine but it might work well for Star Trek. We know very little about the Borg and yet they're in the top 10 of favorite Trek villains AND Sci-fi villains in general. We know more about the Ferengi than the Borg. Anyhow I thought it would be cool to explore the Borg's past before they became an unstoppable Juggernaut.

"Human! We used to be exactly like them. Flawed. Weak. Organic. But we evolved to include the synthetic. Now we use both to attain perfection." - Borg Queen; First Contact.

If there was ever a story to show how Borg evolved DX3 would probably be the best blurb of their collective history. In the end an organic resistance was futile to their synthetic future.

8. Netflix Jul 2, 2011, 23:16 Kxmode
 
I don't know if anyone knew this but I just saw this today. Netflix has the entire series of Enterprise (HD), TOS (HD), TNG and Voyager available for streaming. I think it's only a matter of time before Deep Space Nine is added. I hope they eventually make TNG, Voyager and DS9 HD streams too. I liked Netflix in the past, but with this they are now officially the coolest service EVER!
