My Collector's Edition was delayed in Dallas due to, allegedly, "weather".

I might get it tomorrow. Bummed.

Fail for using Sail in their trailer.

Yeah...talk about absolutely not getting the atmosphere of the original games!

Also, what's with this "save humanity" bullshit? While the Taidani, Vaegyr and Kushan people are humanoid, they aren't human at all!

It's like some of you get off on giving those of us who are looking forward to this game a hard time...and it's sickening...

This explains it.

Are you complaining because they are taking the time to fix and polish the game...

Like they claimed they did with GTAIV?

Sorry, but this game is probably going to be a goddamned disaster at launch and will probably be half-assed patched for a short bit and then abandoned.

TL:DW Actually got so bored by the guys voice halfway through the video I turned it off. That doesn't bode well.

It doesn't bode well for your attention span or his career as a narrator? Because I'm not sure what that has to do with the actual game.

Thats just the tutorial dude. its not that way in the game.

I'm not even sure that's in the tutorial, just a voice over for this PR vid. The narrator sounds like nothing in either of the Homeworld games.

Given that Elite is, in fact, a sandbox style spacesim, I have yet another question about it.

How does Elite compare to X3: TA and X3: AP in terms of "sandboxy-ness"?

My wallet is ready, let's do this.

My wallet was ready in September when I pre-ordered the Collector's Edition.

God damn, the next six days are going to be painful.

After Rome II, and all of its crap plus nickel-and-dime DLC, I'm done with the TW series. CA has had me as a customer since the original Shogun but every game in the series has seen a decline in quality and consistency from the last one.

In my opinion, the best WH:40K RTS is still Dark Crusade.

Has America entered the age of 'megadroughts'?

Man, I hope we can get enough of Bobbob's desal plants online before that hits.

It's not "Has America" as question but "America Has" as a statement. Here in Central Texas, we are still 36', yes feet, below normal water levels. We reached nearly 80 degrees last week. In February. In cities like Austin, mandatory water rationing is still in effect in the middle of winter.

I've started rain water collection that delivers it to a 900 gallon tank buried 8 feet below the surface because water will, in my lifetime, become more precious per fluid ounce than ink for ink jet printers. We have water companies who are trying to sue private citizens in to bankruptcy or buy politicians in to making it law that they have the right to pump private wells dry in the name of "public resources". While taking that water and not distributing it to the local area but shipping millions of gallons to places like New Mexico and California for a giant profit.

In the near future, I think the only way to truly survive here will be to be completely self-sufficient in terms of water, power and foodstuffs.

Obligatory: Is this the patch that makes the game fun?

Serious question: I've read here at BN that a lot of people are recommending a HOTAS system. However, I already have a perfectly functional Sidewinder Force Feedback 2. Would pairing it with a Logitech G13, which I also already own, work just as well?

And if you take money for something promised you're legally bound to deliver that or it's fraud.

Quick, Cutter, call all the venture capital groups in the phonebook and let them know this astounding bit of legal advice.

Your analogy is flawed because you're presenting a finished good as the item you're purchasing. In the case of Early Access and Kickstarters, you're not. In fact, in many of the cases, you don't even see a functional prototype of the game/product/whatever. You see the idea of the product.

The only thing you're doing is investing, not buying, in the intellectual property to provide venture funding to the person, group, or company that wants to turn this intellectual property in to a physical or quasi-physical thing. I say "thing" because it may not be a physical product at all. It may just be a service. It's not at all like thinking you're buying a Ferrari and getting a Toyota.

That's where I think a lot of people lose the plot. They think "Oooo! I'll buy $10 worth of X thing now and, when it's done, I'll get Y product that regularly retails for $59.99!" But that's not what's happening at all. They aren't purchasing anything as the product is not promoted, advertised and presented as feature complete or even production ready.

That said, fuck that jackass who walked out when the money ran out. I hope your miserable ass never works in the gaming industry again, asshole.

Do you work for free? Why should anyone else?

Anyone who thinks that Early Access and Kickstarter are anything but venture investment is blindly deluding themselves, stupid, or both. You purchase hoping that the game/product will be completed because you like the vision and are willing to stake money up front to help see its possible realization.

There is an inherent implied risk that this may not turn out at all how you thought or it may not ever be completed.

Essentially, except in the case of fraud, you're gambling.

Community public banks are good. Private banks on the other hand, not so much.

This is why I love my credit union. I've had them about six years now. They use two factor authentication and, even then, if they think a login is suspicious, they call you immediately with a real live human being who verifies that it's you doing the access.

That being said, I never ever use a debit card. My bank, as awesome as it is, cannot provide the same level of protection that their credit card services arm can. I theorize that this is due to differing agreements between EBT/EFT networks and straight credit networks.

I recently had one of my credit cards through them compromised by someone in India who was buying gas in these weird amounts. They called me, confirmed that I wasn't in India and immediately terminated the card, temporarily froze any sort of transfer from my banking accounts to my credit accounts and overnighted me a replacement card. On top of all that, they even volunteered a year's worth of credit monitoring.

The process was completely painless to me and the lady on the phone was completely apologetic that this happened, even though the actual leak was tracked back to a third party.

Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase...they're all soulless assholes. However, your local credit union may be the best thing for you.
