My backlog is, so far, winning the battle this year. Usually I buy stuff even though my backlog is ridiculously long. This year seems to be different for some reason. I have less time to play than in previous years, so that is probably part of it. I have some really well reviewed games in my backlog, which is probably a bigger part. I haven't played Dishonored yet, for example.

I don't have time to play games anymore... It's actually starting to affect my mood...
Me too, and I don't even have a woman and still am a single virgin! I struggle to visit BN!! :O

And a Linux port!

Yes, a Linux version would be very nice to have. If they are building a Mac version then I assume that the 3D engine for that will use OpenGL. If that is correct then a Linux version should not be a massive job.
David and his team said there weren't any plans when I asked about it at E3 2014. Definitely Windows and then Mac OS X ports. See my http://aqfl.net/node/11029 for the details.

I'm not sure when it happened, but Star Citizen went from "the more I hear about it, the more I wish I had thrown money at it" to "the more I hear about it, the more I'm GLAD I kept my money".
That happens a lot. That is why I don't bother. I'll just wait for the finished products.

Here you go, it's in stock even

Rad(ical)! I bought it for giggles. Now, I officially own the original game for free and legally. Wait, no Linux and Mac OS X ports? Will I play it? Probably not. I already played an online emulated one/1, and I sucked! I'd rather play the new one like at E3 2014 with the Frontier Development team! Only if I had free time. I barely came here.

And a Linux port!

And DRM free!

Though I highly doubt all of the above.
Yep.

When you find out, tell the rest of us. Although seeing as how you're from the formicidae family, I won't hold my breath.

37. Quadcore systems... Nov 23, 2014, 19:39 Ant

You do not need quadcore procs for PC gaming, at least not yet:

Techspot
Far Cry 4 @ 1920x1200 with a GTX 980
i3 3220 2cores/4threads (3.3Ghz) = 76fps
i5 3470 4cores/4threads (3.2Ghz) = 80fps

What you do need is hyperthreading.

One game does not settle that score. I wouldn't want a new pc with a dual core, I doubt I'm alone.

So my old Intel i7 950 and Intel Core 2 Q8200 systems can handle it as long as I have enough RAM, a good video card, etc.?

Gamma? Now they are making up build names LOL? Cute game, but nothing to be taken seriously. I love space games, but like Starpoint Gemini better than this one. I am very disappointed in what they made, nothing like Elite.

Weird because I played the original Elite for hours back in the day and ED seems very much like it. Albeit with better combat, graphics and additional activities. How is it not like Elite?
I never got into the original Elite games, but after playing it in person in E3 2014's booth with Frontier Development team (even got to talk to Dave!), I was totally amazed. I would totally buy and play this if I had the free time. Dang it. I need to retire and stuff. LOL.

Although, no Linux port and offline play mode.

Will players without expansions be able to play? I still have my WoW installation on my very old, updated Windows XP Pro SP3 box, from over a decade ago. However, I haven't been updated it for many years. But then I have no time for gaming even reading BN daily. Maybe Christmas break?

I like to use http://smile.amazon.com/ to support EFF. Are your referral links compatible with that? Or is it one or the other?

I also use that one, I try and do 50% for Blue and 50% for smile. They don't work together, at least from what I could tell.Bat
Smile & BN Amazon URL combined showed both BN referrer URL and my charity pick afer logging in. I have not tried ordering anything yet. Shouldn't that work?
