Yeah. 64-bit KSP was not updated to 1.0. It never worked properly in Windows, particularly when modded. A fresh install of 1.0 will only have a 32-bit executable. The 64-bit Windows version of the engine they use (Unity) is notoriously shit and they can't do anything about it until Unity releases a version that isn't ass.

But the 32-bit version is absolutely fine unless you're installing tons of huge texture packs.

Ah. Good to know. Maybe I'll go back to it at some point. But the second tutorial level not working correctly still left a bad taste in my mouth.

purchased Kerbal the other day... went through the first tutorial okay. Got to the second tutorial (launch), and when I got to orbit, it told me to bring my map up to plot a path or some such. My map is completely blank except for starfield. Apparently this is a known bug. Then I read, while looking that up, that if I wanted to play the campaign, I'd have to run the 32-bit version, because it doesn't work in the 64-bit executable. Quit the game and never went back.

Anet does a good job keeping out cheaters, botters and gold sellers. You see someone selling gold in chat and report it, an Arenanet employee is there within seconds to ban their account. They've all but removed gold spam from the game.

LOLOLOLOL

Yea... Okay.

That's why I've gotten spammed for about 2 hours by the same gold seller. Or why people have been reporting the same cheaters in WvW for months without them getting banned. Come on man...

Man... It's weird. I played the crap out of The New Order, but yet, I'm having trouble with this one on the first section after you escape capture and you have to get past all the super soldiers connected to the power lines.

that would ruffle feathers for sure, they don't even use the swastika in these games anymore.

That's actually inaccurate. Unless you're in a region (like Germany) that prevents it, New Order did have Nazi references along with Swastikas on their armbands, vehicles and buildings.

Oddly, the character model viewer in the game however only showed the geolocked censored version of the models.

Honestly don't really see this one working.

Not to mention only one USB port makes it worthless if you can't have both your mouse and keyboard on the anti-cheat pipeline.

And built on open-source platform to make it easier to figure out how to circumvent.

Still not huge on tanks in a Batman game, though :p

Yeah, I'm not wild about that, either. Hopefully it's a smaller part.


IIRC there's a tank in the trailer for the new Batman v Superman movie?

I would expect that, as they're borrowing from TDKR...


Rubber bullets... Honest.

While I know it really doesn't have anything to do with him, I blame Guillermo Del Toro. That guy says he's doing so many projects all the time, and 95% of them don't get made. :p

Yep... if anyone thought this was a good idea that's "good for the mod community", they can piss off when crap like this happens within a day of it going live:

In Game Pop-ups! Yay!

Also, not being able to even view the discussions on a paid mod unless you buy it?? Fuck you Gabe, fuck you Steam.

I like the part where Chesko says that he specifically checked with Valve, and they said as long as the mod was separate and free, it could be used. Not saying that his comment is necessarily true, but if it is... wow... basically saying "yea, go ahead and steal someone elses work."

My favorite part of this whole Sony hack thing is watching the hypocrisy of all the media outlets who ranted and raved about how the celebrity pictures hack was an invasion of those people's privacy and such, but then post every juicy tidbit of tawdry information from the private, internal corporate email accounts.

(and for the record, I actually thought both leak details shouldn't have been revealed, as they were private communications.)

I actually really loved the first game. I was sad when it underperformed and clearly wasn't going to get a sequel. Its ambiance and story were top notch.

The evolution of the pages changing reality into a puzzle mechanic is a really good idea that I would have enjoyed.

That's because people are fucking stupid.
They should have made the top end raid gear at 60 on par with the normal raid gear at 70.

Yes, they should have let you go straight into raiding for top gear 70 loot because you have 60 loot. Thereby skipping everything else they added into the game. Then you'd be complaining that there was nothing to do even quicker. This is the perfect example of the "give me my stuff now" mentality that infects modern gaming. Your top gear was top for level 60. It made you significantly better at dealing with content in that level range and raiding those end bosses. Once you passed that you had to actually gear up in the new levels like everyone else to be ready to raid for level 70.

This comes about five days after a massive layoff occurred at NCsoft's Austin location. Almost all of it in game support for, you guessed it, Wildstar and, to a smaller extent, Guild Wars 2.

I actually don't think it affected GW2 at all, as ArenaNet has their own customer support I believe.

Because according to the hard science of Groundhog Day, the "long" version of winter is six more weeks, so it still should have been spring two weeks ago.

Well, it's not his fault that our feeble human minds are not advanced enough to interpret his full prediction and we just use some generic 6 weeks. :p

(And the prediction was for 6 more weeks of winter... which there were. There just happen to be another 2 after the 6. Should have had him look at his shadow again. lol)

What was wrong with Punxsutawney Phil's prediction. He predicted a long winter.

You're not supposed to listen to any other groundhogs. :p

(Full Disclosure: Phil's only been right 39% of the time, so you probably shouldn't listen to him any way. Just got lucky this year.)

Palmer has said the same thing. If Oculus fails and another company succeeds, that's fine. So long as it takes off this time.

Yea, of course he's okay with that now... he sold it to facebook for 2 billion. I can bet he wouldn't be saying that if he was still just an independent kickstarter company funding himself.
