You receive a copy for the platform of your choice.
So I'd have to back twice if I wanted, say, a PC copy and an Android copy?

I went with 8-bit graphics because it's the style of illustrating I have been doing for the last 20 years (I used to do a lot of pixel work for Doom mods). I don't want the game to be defined by "retro" visuals, it's just the most comfortable medium for me. But you're right; if I continue doing art for games, I'd love to show off some higher fidelity art.
Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for answering. I often lament the 8-bit trend (even while enjoying games like FTL and Rogue Legacy), but have wondered why. "It's cheap and easy" has been my assumption, but "It's what I've done for 20 years" is something I'd not considered.

I came here to talk about Dark Quest, but no one is discussing it. So disappointing.

Funny comments from that article:

So Steam doesn't want to be steamy. Hmmm.
and
Am I the only one that thinks it's hilarious that the images in the article about Steam censoring porn games are *literally* censored with steam? (in order to get Steam to accept them)

Oh, even as an infrequent poster here... I know who Cutter is I just figured a level-head might prevail once in a great while.

Hey Pixelscuba. A few questions.

1. Kickstarting the game gets us access to all three versions: iOS, Android, & PC?

2. Why did you go with 8-bit graphics over something with more fidelity?

And the big PC gaming news they promised turns out to be....*drum roll*

Streaming games from your Xbone to your PC. Woo. PC gaming is so important to them they found a way to turn your PC into a monitor for your Xbox. Yay PC* gaming! Buy Xbox!

*Not actually a PC

Meh, it's a very minor feature, but I could see it being useful if you wanted to play an XB1 game and someone is using the big TV. You could stream it to your laptop. I Stream steam games to my laptop when people are in the living room (where I keep my gaming computer).

Concept 2 Rowers. Rowing is by far the best combined cardio and strength exercise there is, bar none. Everything else is a waste of time and money comparitively. 20 mins every other day on one and you'll be in near Olympian shape in six months. Forget treadmills and all that other garbage.

This helps a discussion about the dangers of working at a desk how?

That you offset your sedentary lifestyle by working out intelligently, Stephen. You can work harder, or you can work smarter. It's not rocket surgery.

You can't offset by doing an hour or two of rowing in the evening. Article subheading: "Research says prolonged sitting puts you at risk even if you exercise regularly." The problem is sitting for more than 30 mins at a time. You need to get up and walk around for 5m every 30m.

Another Star Citizen post for the haters to gather around.
How can there be so much vitriol towards a game that someone feels they have to spew on it every time there is a post?
What wasted emotion...

Let the hate flow through you.

It doesn't seem F2P, but a Buy-to-play model similar to Guild Wars 2, from what I've read. But I guess we'll know for sure in March.

Technically it's not F2P, no, as you still need to buy the client.

As long as they don't go the full-on retard way of SW:TOR, I figure they'll make more money out of it this way than with the few people who bothered subscribing to it.


Oh, so more the Guild Wars model? I think I mentioned when this game was in beta that they should have done that to begin with. I'm not a big MMO player, but if they'd gone the GW route, I would have probably picked it up being an Elderscrolls fan. This is the only ES game I haven't played except for the first one: Arena.

You'll get me to pay for software as a service when you pry Windows 7 from my cold dead fingers. Middlefinger

Details are still vague, but maybe they'll give you Win 10 for free, and if you want SP1 or something you have to pay for it. But it sure sounded like they wanted to charge people an annual fee, which kinds of jibes with what they've been saying for a while now.

Looking at this guys rap sheet, with gun possession and burglaries, I'm a bit surprised he's not a 49ers Raiders fan.

So Microsoft just announced that Windows 10 is a free upgrade for the first year, going back all the way to Windows 7. I'm betting this is for consumers only and not VLK.

As I understand it, free for the first year, then an annual fee after that. MS is being kind of vague about the whole thing, but you can be sure they're trying to figure out how to squeeze blood from the udders. Sounds like they're moving to software as a service as a way of avoiding people that skip the crappy MS releases and only buy an OS every other release (or every third release).

Nah, the drones are going to buy Hardline. I hope you're right though. I'm still bitter about the terrible BF3/4 releases.

I'm still bitter about no offline play with bots, and no modability.

People are acting like this means the game is a failure and that this is some big "told you so" moment. This is pretty standard practice now not just for MMO but for other online games. Zenimax Online already prepared for this right from launch.

Once you no longer generate anymore revenue from "premium" customers, you re-release the game as F2P to increase your user-base. If done well, it can be a positive thing both for old users who want to return and those playing now that would like a more active community.

SWTOR has generated a healthy revenue and maintained a good user-base since going F2P. I just hope they find a way to reward those that purchased the game at premium.

It is a failure. WoW is the holy grail.

Odd choice going buy-to-play this long after launch. I was expecting a F2P model. The initial box sale rush is long gone, so buy-to-play keeps a barrier to entry that will limit their microtransaction sales without getting them much in return.

Well, except for that $15 per month vig from tens of thousands of people.

The Best Photos Of 'UFOs' We Found In The Newly-Released Project Blue Book Collection.

Mostly natural phenomena or obvious fakes. Gotta love how people won't give up their original negatives for analysis. I think the two most interesting ones are August 3, 1965 Santa Ana, California and April 15, 1965 Omaha, Nebraska. On the Nebraska one it looks like an insect or something shat on the negative, or there was some kind of flaw with the film. The Santa Ana one is more interesting, hard to tell what that is exactly, and there are multiple shots.
