No one likes to by flying down the road and then suddenly hit an obstacle and come to a complete stop. That's not fun.

I and about a literal million other racing sim fans vehemently disagree. The Simbin games, in particular, were brutally hard and immensely fun. There are plenty of kiddie arcade racers on consoles already. NFS, Forza, GT, Mario...to name just a handful.


Sliding "all around the track" is boring as Hell. Now, sliding around the corner of an old backwoods country dirt road by kicking the tail out is LOADS of fun...provided you know how to get the vehicle back in a straight line.

I miss playing games like GT Legends online with other people who knew how to actually drive instead of flailing around like a drunken, epileptic, retarded kid.

Oh, and Hotline Miami is downloading right now. I see Jaguar grabbed it - any comments? Thinking I will indulge this evening....

I don't get the attraction to 8 bit games. I've spent $1000s over the last 20 years trying to upgrade my hardware to get away from 8 bit graphics, so I feel no nostalgia to return. Can someone enlighten me?


Fun is fun regardless of the graphics.


Except if the graphics are a major distraction to an individual, then fun is not "fun regardless of graphics".

Semantics? Maybe but I generally tend to agree. Why pay for 8 bit graphics as a major point when you can download ROMs and emulators for free?

Except that it is in the desktop and enterprise environment. See, the biggest piece of the pie isn't in ULV procs. It's still in mainline procs.

Take, for example, Ford. Is Ford going to be buying more Dell/HP/Lenovo systems and servers or more iPads during their next upgrade cycle? Chances are, Ford isn't going to be spending a couple tens of millions worldwide on iPads.

That's where the anti-trust/monopoly suits come from. Not "Well, we have ARM and Snapdragon processors in mobile phones and tablets so it's totally cool for you to be the only producer of desktop and server processors."

It is in Intel's best interest to keep a competitor alive in every market segment. It's also cheaper than a lawsuit, too.

Heh, I'm of a different opinion.

I find Dishonored...uninspiring. It's not bad but it doesn't excel in any one area that hasn't already been done in a previous game, sometimes better. It's this weird amalgamation of Thief and Bioshock in terms of mechanics, abilities and upgrade options and it just doesn't flow well for me.

On the other hand, Xcom fucking rocks. Now if it would stop crashing when I alt-tab out of it when it is in windowed mode, it would be perfect.

Holy shit AMD get it together!

They're in their downward spiral. They can not make competitive chips where it counts and they don't have a broad enough portfolio to have money coming in while they try and work on their core business.

I'd expect a "loan" from Intel via some cross-license deal to keep them afloat. It's cheaper to do that than fight yet another anti-trust suit simply because you're the only large player left on the field.

YES! Go Mrs. Blue!

If you have made something resembling chile with beans, you have only succeeded in making bean soup.

If you're seriously in to pirating, you don't do it from a raw connection. You're going through a proxy and you're making sure all your traffic is encrypted.

At best, this is going to collect casual "piracy" and, because it is so prevalent, ISPs aren't going to crack down that hard. Why would you piss off the people who keep paying you monthly? That's bad business.

HELP

I am going out of my mind. The in-game text says I can "hire" more scientists and engineers. Two personnel resources I am critically short of.

However, so far, the only way I seem to be able to acquire more scientists and engineers is by the end of the month payoff from "The Council" and as mission rewards.

FTFY.

There is no such "right" that exists, whether naturally or decreed by law, that says you will automagically have gold fall from the sky simply because you create something.

That was actually a lot Erin Roberts' doing. If you recall, he was also the head of the abysmal Privateer 2 and Brute Force.

As long as Chris Roberts keeps his brother far away from anything he creates, it will turn out really good.
