I'm... not sure that's accurate.

aka "Bank Holiday". I think that is about it?

I thought it was a school holiday, but one of the kids is off and one isn't. Go figure.

Well no official numbers have been released there is speculation that Hulu makes more from ads than it does from subscribers. Moving away from that model would signal a major shift in the way the company is run.

Of course they make more from ads, most people don't want to subscribe to Hulu because they don't want to pay to watch almost as many ads as broadcast TV. I've subscribed and they have decent selection of current season shows; usually available within a a few hours of airing to a day. But there can be a lot of commercials, and their player sucks and tends to gets stuck after showing a commercial and not returning to what you watch, at which point you have to reload the show and watch another set of commercials before you can hopefully finish up with the show. If they had commercials at the start and maybe one break in the middle it wouldn't be too bad, but its like every 10 minutes. It'd be interesting to see how much more a no/fewer ad subscription costs, but I'm not holding my breath with a company partly owned by Comcast.

Wait, so even the paid subscription Hulu Plus has ads?

Not sure these guys used enough buzzwords or comparisons to other beloved games. They should throw a few more in there.

The part where they flew through the city on their way to dock, was that free-form flying, or was it a predetermined path? Because if that was free-form, I think I just had a little accident in my pants....

landing on planets will be in-engine cutscenes. you just watched one

Sigh. I knew it was too good to be true.

Well, the fact that it's in-engine means they could, in theory, make it manual someday.

Someone TLDR ... it's Gamasutra...

Ps.: I don't get how Internet threats can drive you from your house.. seriously. Who the fuck cares about some nutjobs on the internet? I mean we all know they exist..but leaving my house, and my computer over that? Haha... never. Whoever comes to me better be armed and armored.

Well, every now and then someone goes off the deep end.

Then again, I have an actual functional 1h broadsword next to my bed.... makes you sleep very well at night. And also metal shutters and a door that is metal reinforced, reinforced grating over the cellar windows and locks in every single window. Whoever lived here before me was way more paranoid than me....

Your house sounds a bit unusual. Still you have to leave its safe confines now and then. And even here in the states wearing a gun on your person isn't a guarantee of safety.

Credit monitoring for a year...what good does that do? If they got your CC, your CC company will issue you a new card, and you are gtg. If they got other personal information (like in some other data breaches), thieves now have the tools to steal your identity 6 months from now, or 6 years from now. It's nothing but a symbolic gesture, and worthless.

Unless they use your number and you don't notice. Then you're responsible for part of it.

Netflix is worth having for 3x the cost. Comcast/verizon/directtv/etc are your reamers. Netflix is more than fair.

Agree with this 100%.

Also saw Prez in SoM last night, but it just kept showing notifications he was playing it, so it might have been crashing, or some other oddity...

Yeah, at one point in the evening, he hopped in, and within 2-3 minutes it said he hopped back in again. Not sure if he was configing it or if it was crashing.

I see he's in there now...



Who cares? Are you his personal stalker? Some graphic configs require the user to restart the game, fyi.

Glad to see Styx in the list. I'm surprised by how good it is and it made me realize how consolized about every game is these days. Styx brings back the honest manual jumping and manual saves without those dumb checkpoints. It's fun and it doesn't take itself too serious. Styx' model is very nice. The AI isn't special but not flawed either. All in all, if you want the oldschool year 2000 third person stealth feel back, get yer hands on Styx. The game, that is. The goblin will cut you open.

It's interesting to here you say this. From the gameplay vids I watched, it looked very consolized.

Star Citizen thread time again. Get out the Space Popcorn boys.

I'll settled for nothing less than hookers and blow.

That's a stretch goal at the $60 million mark. So keep buying ships!

Okay, watched the vid. Pretty cool.

Minor concern: will it take 5 minutes from planet to store every time? Seems like a lot of waiting. If I were on a flight, this is where I'd be playing MC on my phone. After the first few times, you'd want to just zip down there in 10s.

Major concern: $60M is a lot of money, but the scope here is getting really, I mean REALLY, ambitious. I hope they don't run out.

More sci fi is always a good thing. There's always a chance it will turn out well.

Also, funny how they dig on Adam Baldwin.

Slow credit card verification lands Florida man in jail.

I read about that. On the one hand, good on credit card companies for being cautious. On the other, they need a system in place to prevent this from happening. Like an immediate call back to the owner? An email seems way too easy to miss.

From the article:

The FAA changed the rules without taking in public comment, the flight attendants argued. The union also worries that electronic devices can bounce around the cabin during turbulence and injure passengers.

Heh, without public comment. Perhaps because 95% of people were asking for this change?

Also, like horrorscope said, attendants are worried that someone might get hit in the head with a phone during turbulence? Are you kidding me?

Crazy the way that this shows no signs of slowing down.

Question for Bluesers: when was the last time you spent money on this project? I'm just wondering who is driving this and why.

Mind you, this is not a complaint or criticism. These people are funding the game for the rest of us. I'm just curious.

Why would you be disappointed?

Because I'd like to try Windows 10, but don't feel comfortable having every single thing I type sent back to Microsoft? And I don't feel comfortable having MS scan my SMS and phone data if I Sync my phone to my desktop?

Just because they're upfront about it doesn't make it any more shitty. (and again, I understand that they want to check SOME stuff to help make Win10 better. My phone data has nothing to do with their OS.)

That they're upfront about it makes it much less shitty. It would be much more shitty, approximately 72.8% more shitty, had they kept it a secret. This way, at least, you know to avoid it.
