Well...I installed it...after a 29 gig download. It installed fine and then I noticed that it was a bit dark...I tried the brightness controls and...they didn't work? Seriously, HOW do the brightness controls NOT work??? I have a joystick and the default ship twitches around like a epileptic fish. The controls feel spongy and yet over sensitive


In Star Citizen's defense, you were flying the default ship: the Aegis Dynamics ZX-7 Epileptic Fish. I suggest the Anvil Aerospace F7C Hornet.

I wonder if any smart guys on oil 'derricks' are going to play this.

I don't know but I enjoy reading his opinions about this PoS game.

He's got an interesting perspective commenting on a space combat game as one of the few people on the planet to actually have made a space combat game.

Happy International Lefthanders Day!

Woot woot! I can't wait to write something down today and then smudge the ink with my hand!


An unfortunate daily occurrence for us left handers...

On the up side, left handers are supposedly more creative. And being a lefty in a righty's world means lots of extra neural pathways created by forcing you to use your right hand for things. Lastly, lefties are anecdotally better in bed.

Fun fact: Presidents Obama, Clinton, HW Bush, and Ford are all lefties, and Reagan was ambidexterous. W and Nixon were righties.

Dying Light 2 may be too ambitious for PS4 & Xbox One.

Wow, so it hasn't even been two years yet, but next gen consoles are already becoming last gen.

EA skipped a Battlefront campaign because "very few" would play it
According to Peter Moore

Battlefront 2 didn't have a campaign. It did have bots for every single mode so you could play offline alone, coop vs. bots, or full multiplayer without bots.

That being said, unlike SP Battlefield campaigns, people actually give a shit about Star Wars stories. A well done SP campaign would have been awesome, and people, kids especially, would have played the crap out of that. Yet again, EA focuses on making money over making a great product.

Obviously. It's a ploy by Roberts to create new addicts who will then spend thousands on virtual ships.

Well, if there is one thing that the current state of Arena Commander is NOT going to do then create new addicts. The only thing that creates new addicts is flashy trailers of future pipe dreams.
It's really kinda odd cuz AC is not really in broader public shape. Maybe they were just too lazy to implement a more restrictive access system and just went 'fuck it, make the code GAMESCOM2015 and let everyone have a taste'(?).

Yeah, you make good points. I was just trying to be funny.

This video is from a closer perspective. The story is that this was livestreamed by someone because, well, as you can see it's unlikely the cameraman survived.

Also there were two explosions after the fire broke out, a big one and then a fucking huge one like 30 seconds later.

@KXmode, damn that site is huge. It probably all blew, which is why the explosion was so big.

@NKD, yeah, I hope that guy is okay. Reminds me of this guy filming this dormant volcano, although not nearly as close.

I can see farmers set up on day one killing each other over and over just to end the game. The devs log in the next morning and the game is deleted off steam.

Heh. I'm sure there are people out there that would view it as a challenge to see how quickly they could end it. That being said, if the devs saw too much bot on bot action in their game, they could always just add another zero to the end state.

No love for Full Throttle? One of the greatest SCUMM games ever made, designed by Tim Schafer and with voice work by Mark Hamill.

*checks*

Actually, might not be available anywhere digitally.
GoG should get on that. Looks like there are abandonware downloads for it though.

geez. Was looking for some games to play one handed (don't get cute with that) from a recent surgery, and thought I could do Fallout New Vegas - well, although painful, I did - and accidentally blinked and it was over 5 hours later. I remember very little from the first time I played at release, and I loaded up with a bunch of improvements from Nexus.

Any recommendations on 1 hand games, maybe some good click/mouse games?

Any point and click adventure game will work. I always buy the Artifex Mundi games on Steam when they're 2 bucks as they're great litle time wasters. Divinty Original Sin can be played 1H as it's turn based. That'll keep you going for a long time. I've been playing a lot of Invisible Inc, This War of Mine and Sid Mier's Starships of late, all 1H games. Also board game type games on Steam like Ticket to Ride, et al. are all 1H. Oddly enough they don't have any classic games like backgammon, cribbage, etc. And I always like playing those.

Yeah, not sure if it's your bag, but maybe time time to play The Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us?

  • Crackdown 3 (finally) proves why Microsoft put Xbox One's head in the cloud.

  • I played the first one and it was pretty fun but...aren't these guys supposed to be cops? How does destroying the city translate into " Protect and Serve". I can see the news interview with the police chief now...

    "Chief, you're officers did 40 billion dollars in damage and cost the lives of at lease 1000 people. How do you respond to these allegations of blatant disregard for human life?"

    "Well, we got our man. Now the citizens of this fine town, however many may have survived, can breathe easier knowing this criminal scum is off our decimated streets."

    Haven't you been reading the news the past decade, and especially over the past year regarding the police?

    I have serious techlust for one of those ultrawide 3440x1440 monitors.

    waiting for them to come out with a 40" ultrawide. i too share your lust, but i went to frys to check them out and vertically they feel smushed to me because they're shorter than the 27" i currently play on even though they're way wider.

    I think a 34" ultrawide (21:9, the one from the article) is the same height as a 27" (16:9, standard ratio). Probably what you're seeing is the 1080P ultrawides, which are too small, but a lot cheaper.

    Not like I'd back this anyway, but if I was inclined there's no way I'd do it without regional pricing. If they can do it for all these other countries they can do it for Canada or no sale.

    Huh, it only cost me $16 USD. Can't you VPN into the US and buy it?
