It's interesting how quickly these games have been released after Disney's buyout. I wonder which stubborn prick at Lucasfilm was resisting this for years and years.

Hmm, which fatty has been plugging up the spigot for all these years. Hmm, who could it be. WHO??

Oops - Avernum 2: Crystal Souls review is in here.

Yeah, it's the version burned permanently onto a ROM chip, so it qualifies as hardware.

@ Duke.

Thanks for engaging. Since no one is going to change your mind, could you explain precisely why you don't want to get vaccinated? At this point I just want to understand. So far, I get this:

- You have just as much chance of getting sick vaccinated as unvaccinated, so what's the point.
- The immune system is all the protection anyone needs
- Herd immunity is just a theory, and I don't think it's true.
- Vaccines are scams run by Big Pharma and I am voting with my wallet not to support that
- Since we don't know all science yet, there's no point in making decisions based on science since theories can be overturned.
- Since incidence of disease is very low where I live, there's no point in getting vaccinated because I'll never get exposed.

Would you agree with those statements? Are there any others? Say, religious reasons or something else that hasn't come up yet?

because, EXPLOOOOOOOOOOOOOSIONS! *wicked air guitar*

I love Torque.

That said, the badassasaurus was just a stupid, stupid battle. No cover to hide behind, the thing zaps your health in roughly half a second with its megadeathlaserbreath thing, like everything in Borderlands it has 987 trillion health. Ugh.

I wonder when devs began to think that "let's make players slog against this thing for 45 minutes!" was actually fucking fun. Because I'd like to travel back in time to that exact moment and kick those fuckers in the balls.

I finally wound up beating the PoS boss by cheesing him from outside the arena. Took like 30 minutes too. Such fun...


Huh, haven't played that one yet, but I loved how the battle at the end of Tiny Tina went. The boss kept mutating into something different that required different tactics to kill. So yeah the battle was long, but it wasn't that boring since it was less repetitive.

Is all the profanity a sign of frustration of me not falling on my knees and joining your herd? I'm thinking...yes?

And what killed all the natives after Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. Why that would be smallpox, because none of the natives had been vaccinated, so most of them died.

I'd be interested in hearing your responses to my arguments as well.

Haha, yeah that was an odd thing to say in light of the topic.
Hard to believe it's not trollin.

you and all your buds here jumping on the "attack the anti-vax" wagon
A+ sir.

Heh. Yeah, I'm thinking that the fact that he skipped replying to my well-cited posts is that he really has no answer. I didn't really ever understand the exact reason why he didn't want to vaccinate. He's just got some notion he's embarrassed to admit, and wants to try to denigrate everyone else to prop up the decision in his own mind.

I'm reminded of a time a couple years ago when I was driving around one Sunday and I drove by a church. Right next to the church (this was in a strip mall) was a small bookstore called "The Truth Bookstore" which sold bibles and other religious materials. The only thing I could think of was how insecure they must be in their faith in order to feel the need to name the bookstore "The Truth."

They aren't going after him cause he has no money left.

Well, he's got no money left because they've frozen all of his assets. "Well, you're innocent until proven guilty, but your money is guilty until proven innocent, then we'll give it back. Actually, we probably won't (see Civil Asset Forfeiture laws)."

Boosting would be faster then normal exp/rank gain. So i'd assume reverse boosting would be killing yourself so you go into a lower ranked game and then can dominate the less skilled players to get more exp faster(xp per kill+ bonus from streaks.) It prob has to do with how their ranking servers put people in match making.

Ah, thanks. I was trying to figure out what the motivation was. Not a huge competitive MP gamer.

Which would matter if player numbers were huge, but they never have been for this game. Just finding a game is hard.

/4,000 current players, the game averages 10k peak a day....that is garbage. It is pretty far down the list....

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

If you like DeathMatch (disgusting) then you will be fine, as 80-90% of that is vanilla deathmatch, a worthless gameplay style. If you are NOT a vanilla TDM player, the game is dead.

If you like to play a real game mode - or anything hardcore, then you are out of luck. Oh, and no CTF in Hardcore mode - WTF?

Good to see the Call of Duty games fall off of the PC playlist. AW never made the top 20 I do not believe. In fact Binding of Isaac and CoD came out same week and Isaac was always above it in numbers......

That's really odd though. I thought the whole pull of CoD was the multiplayer b/c the SP campaigns were so short and campy. Seems odd that the numbers would be so low when they've claimed so many sold. Is the disparity betw PC and console for that game so far?

Can't really route for either side here. On the one hand, Kim was pretty blatantly taunting the MPAA and RIAA and making powerful enemies. If he'd kept his head down, and protested loudly that he was removing offending content, I can't help but think he wouldn't have been targeted. On the other, the US gov't has been going overboard in its charges and generally being the lackeys of the MPAA and RIAA.

Investors Really Don't Like This New Wireless Competition Thing.

Less happy about all of this are investors, who for obvious reasons often prefer the healthy predictable returns of a less competitive market.

Yup, monopolies/duopolies give better returns because they rob consumers blind. One of the worst aspects of capitalism, which I otherwise generally like.

Yeah, cool. One to keep an eye on for sure. Have a feeling if these guys KS'd they'd get some good cash. Loved the HL2 grav gun, and of course, the Portal series. Sounds like they're also trying to randomize the levels a bit to allow for multiple unique playthroughs (unlike Portal where levels are static).

Without much else than this trailer, I'm getting a very "Civ in Space" vibe (like Galciv): multiple human settlements on a map expanding at the same time/rate you are, and you have to go out and find them.

Also a bit worrying is that this will simultaneously release for tablet. That's not a guarantee of oversimplicity, but it does suggest it.
