Articulate, intelligent explanation of why RAM usage is a good thing here.

At a more anecdotal level, I have 16GB of main system memory in my desktop PC. Right now, the system has reserved 6GB of that for itself. Applications that I bring up often load up in five seconds or less thanks to predictive caching (which is awesome for KSP and the hojillion mods I have installed, for example). Even so, I can't recall ever seeing a game slice off more than 4GB for its own usage. RAM is there to be used, not sit idle and suck down power. I don't see the fuss.

I recommend everybody reading this to get a Chromecast, $35 to stream to your tv is killer.


So that Google can pass on my viewing habits and preferred entertainment to the NSA and other GAs without notification or a public warrant?

No thanks, I'll pass. Google has lost all goodwill it ever had with me.

Admittedly the last time I played VO was three years ago. Realizing this, I downloaded the client and created a trial account last night. Gave it about two hours of playtime.

Things that are better:
* Definitely better models/general graphics
* There is a lot more NPC activity than I remember
* Yay! A thorough tutorial now!

Things that appear to have remained the same:
* Almost all missions are of the standard, generic MMO type.
* Lack of players
* I'm not seeing any sort of story arc that makes me want to invest in the character yet. The three factions, outside of the description text, don't seem to have anything that makes them unique from one another outside of models and colors.

Tried playing VO and it was just so...sterile to me. The models were bland, the missions were bland and the universe seemed well...sterile. Not a lot of PC traffic.

Wait, wait, wait.

It's going gold on July 24th and not going to be released until nearly a month later? WTF?!?

It's obvious. They need the extra time to polish up the day one DLC and Season Passes they're going to try to sell you.

AWESOME!!!!!
I loved star control 2. 3 was kinda meh.
I loved the game itself, but also the 2 player on same keyboard combat mini game thing, my brother and I had tons of fun battling each other with that.

Also, if you have any love for star control, there's an open source remake (they even received some of the code from the 3do version from the original devs):
http://sc2.sourceforge.net/

If you liked the music, they have that available as a separate download, most has been remixed in the last few years for the open source release, and most of the remixes were done by the original composers!
http://sc2.sourceforge.net/downloads.php
Its a great set of electronica type music, a wide variety of it. That was one of my favorite parts of the game, the original (and the redone) music.


UQM is one of those games that I can play over and over again, even if I already know the story by heart and can beat the game in less than 8 hours. It's just that awesome.

It is your loss.

No, it really isn't. It's a formulaic retread of a game you already bought and paid for more than a decade ago. It isn't a good story nor is it even a decent continuation of the original storyline.

A small point, but why isn't the narrator(narratress? narratrix?) an actual Aussie?

Mad Max is Australian. The world of Mad Max is post-crisis Australia.

Regarding OR...

How well does it work if you wear glasses? All the 3D devices I have tried are monster pains in the ass if you already wear glasses.

For me, at least, there is a blank where the embedded video should appear.

OK, I thought that was just on my end, or I would have mentioned it sooner. Been seeing it for about a week or more now...


I did make note of it in an earlier thread. Specifically here:

Blue,

It's 2:10pm and 106F at 31% humidity. What do you define as "sweltering"?

Blue, the embedded video seems to be broken. Happens in FF 22 and 21 as well as IE 10 on multiple machines, different OSes and three separate networks/providers.

Here's what it looks like:

IE 10 on Win7 and Win8:

oh and just try immigrating there. The answer will be no unless you are 20-something.

I'm currently in the process of emigrating to Australia and, being 35, I am finding no barriers whatsoever. Their restrictions make sense. Why allow an influx of non-professional workers when the native labor workers are finding it hard to obtain a job?

I have a demonstrable skillset that Australian businesses need so that, obviously, is quite helpful.

Steam DRM is inconvenient (better not have to restart your computer if your internet ever goes down), that's for sure.

On the flip side, I haven't paid over $10 for a game on my Steam library since HL2.

If the Xbox decides to become like Steam, well, I already have Steam.

There's a simpler truth that separates the two that people forget: Steam is free, the Xbox is $500.

There's an even simpler truth than that:

Not every game for the PC requires Steam. In fact, there are new games you can buy from GoG that do not have the Steam requirement. There is still a choice as to whether or not you wish to participate in DRM.

Even if you want a game that has such DRM, you still have the very easy and readily available option of bypassing that DRM. There are several groups on the internet that make such bypasses available.

With the Xbox One, there is no choice. You are forced in to a DRM scheme no matter what you purchase for use on it and you have no easy, readily available way of bypassing it.
