No need for speed: Cable industry opposes 25Mbps broadband definition.

I bought H1Z1 because I was so desperate to play a DayZ game that didn't have an atrocious interface. The game is much smoother, but the only thing there is to do is walk around and open empty container after empty container. I've looted well over 500+ things, and all I have to show for it is a couple pair of goggles.

How frickin hard is it to make this type of game that doesn't suck?! Every other genre has games that don't suck, but this genre can't manage a single one.

Well, there's a place to find all the things you could ever want! The Microtransaction store! Just order an airdrop, be the first one there, and voila! Tons of items!

It would be nice if we could filter headlines or customize things like how it is on reddit. It's not a huge deal but the constant bombardment of these headlines is getting old.


Reddit has a team of programmers. Blue's is a one-man show.

You could just skip them, but for Blue they're a money maker since they attract a lot of attention.

A measles outbreak in Disneyland, good work, anti-vaccination idiots. How embarassing, to humanity as a whole, that these CURED diseases are coming back so strongly now. It's going to take a bunch of kids getting paralyzed in the US by polio before this shit stops.

We had a lively discussion a few days ago when this broke.

B) Faking rape/death threats for fun and profit is disgusting. If you actually believe for a second they're real I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you cheap.

I know the police (or FBI?) was investigating. Did we hear definitively one way or the other?

Regardless, what this guy did was douchey.

Ugh, not jungles. Never cared for that setting. Hated it in Diablo 2 and WoW. And no new races or classes?!?!?!

Yup, can't see shit in the jungle. Give me a nice vegetation-free desert environment and a Barrett .50 with a 12x scope. POW! Rifle

Wait, uh, something's not quite right here...

A 'whale' is the heart of the microtransaction business. The top 5% of spenders that support the other 95% of free-loading or small-time-spending players in a free-to-play or buy-to-play environment... I am shocked you're not familiar with that term.

Interesting, I did not know that - thanks for the explanation. *shuffles it into memory*

It just means you don't pay much attention to the F2P market. Which is a good thing!

This guy put his laptop on the balcony and plays from inside because it overheats.

Alternatively, he could just clean the damn thing.

Good work if you can get it. Except for the rape threats, that is.

I really like DayZ. Despite what you hear it's quite playable and has been for some time, IF you know you're getting into. The game is janky and buggy as hell. The PvE component is half-baked at best. The graphics engine sucks (why didn't they just use ARMA 3?) and it's rampant with hacks. All of those things are true.

This is the thing that boggles my mind the most. These guys have made literally 10s of millions of dollars, and it seems the game has made little progress since it was released. With that amount of money, you can afford to go out and hire people to fix the problems. It's almost as if they're saying "Why bother? People keep buying it as is."

Most games don't come close to utilizing 2g of card memory. Statistically, about 85% of "pc gamers" systems only have 4-8g ram and a 1-2 GB card, barely 4% run 4GB vram. My 760 from over a year ago has 4GB, and the system I paired it will will last for years to come without upgrading. My son's 970 in his new PC this year will summarily last many many years without the need to upgrade.

I mentioned to make sure you buy the 4 GB because it makes sense to true gamers -- not because it's a popular option.

Yeah, I had to upgrade to a 4GB card so I could play FTL in high resolution.

I'm fine with that. If it's fun, it's fun!


My point was that if everything was crowdfunded, that's pretty much all you'd see since that's all most games would be able to afford.

Giant Bomb quick look if anyone interested.
The title of this game definitely sucks ass but the gameplay looks like some old school C&C. I like it.

Cool looking game, but those guys were clueless.

Yeah, cool trailer but weak game, and bad title. And Frank who? Legendary? What? In his own mind?

He did the C & C music. Back in the day I loved those soundtracks.

Usually not a fan of pre-rendered trailers, but that was pretty cool.

As I understand it, the campaign in this game uses rendered cut scenes to tell the story, a la C & C back in the day. As an RTS fan, I'll own this some day, but not out of the gate. Too much other unplayed stuff.
