Yup, MP only. SP isn't even a stretch goal. At the very least they could do offline MP with bots. "Multiplayer space warfare from the minds behind X-Wing, Crysis and Desert Combat." All games/mods that had substantial single player options.

These people never learn.

When was the last time we had a narrative single player starfighter campaign like in X-Wing or Wing Commander? I know we're getting one in Squadron 42, but I can't remember the last time we had one. Anyone?

Cool name, and product itself sounds cool too. I'll have to check it out.

These days I buy as much from GoG and Humble as I do from Steam.

All you have to do is look at their voting records to see the Dems definitely come down on the side of the people far more often than the Repugs which are virtually solely beholden to the the elites/big biz. There are very measurable and quantifiable differences here. Yes, they still leave a huge deal to be desired but they're head and shoulders above the competition. You think Title II would have happened under the GOP? Socialized medicine? Comcast and Time Warner would have merged by now and not have to spent a half billion dollars to do it. Oh yeah, and you'd probably be in several more unnecessary wars and another few trillion in debt with rampant unemployment and slave wage jobs. The list is endless.

But sure, by all means, continue to the think there are no differences between the two parties.


Flawed though it is, the ACA has cut costs, covered more people, and helped boost the economy. In five years of opposing it, the Republicans have yet to propose a workable alternative. Which is a shame. We need choices, but there aren't any really that do what they ACA did while meeting Repub ideological requirements.

We really have only one party (again, flawed as it is) that is even trying to help the average person. The Repubs are truly the party of "NO." They either oppose legislation or introduce "NO" legislation: No abortions, no gays, no taxes, no infrastructure, no minimum wage, no helping poor people, no corporate regulation, no environmental protections, etc. etc.

Carly Fiorina running for president.

Maybe she can bring some of that CEO magic to the presidency like she did when she was at HP!

On second thought, maybe not:
A consummate self-promoter, Fiorina was busy pontificating on the lecture circuit and posing for magazine covers while her company floundered. She paid herself handsome bonuses and perks while laying off thousands of employees to cut costs. The merger Fiorina orchestrated with Compaq in 2002 was widely seen as a failure. She was ousted in 2005.

THE STAT: HP stock lost half its value during Fiorina’s tenure.

However, you have to admit that reads like an ideal Republican candidate bio.

Interesting Elite story. Sounds like they'll be adding some new content soon that might shake things up a bit in that world.

I liked this ancient artefact that's sitting out on the outer edges of the sol system.

Good article. The feds do want their kill switch powers. They'll use it against the populace in various duplicitous ways. Any sort of unrest could be dealt with rubber bullets, inet blackouts and civil lockdown. Your rights to protest and publicly gather are diminishing every year.

edit: Any unrest can and likely will be treated with the utmost hostility by the authorities. Killswitch powers are another tool in their arsenal.

It's interesting that you tie kill switches in with rubber bullets. Tasers are very much along these same lines: a tool supposedly as a less lethal alternative to guns has been turned into a device that is often used by police for torture, punishment, and control. They are often used against suspects who are already immobilized, they are used incorrectly against suspects in situations where being immobilized can and has lead to their death, they are used multiple times when one will suffice, etc.

Icewind Dale was awesome, but don't we have enough of these games already? Why is everything these days a rehash of something else? Hell, even the AAA games coming out are remakes of old games. Are we that fucking uncreative that we can't come up with new ideas? There's a dearth of originality lately that I find rather depressing.

I'm curious what you would like to see come out of the gaming industry that hasn't been done before? I don't mean that in a condescending or negative way at all. You sound like you have some ideas.

There are so many sequels, remakes, mash-ups, or spiritual successors these days. I am also looking for original game concepts to play, and it seems like new genres are rare. In the past decade we've seen a few of them rise up: survival (DayZ, etc.), MOBA, and Tower Defense come to mind. I think the best new concept I played in the past few years was FTL, and even that could technically be considered a mashup (roguelike and management sim).

The lack of Ferraris, Lambos and Corvettes might be a sore point.

Any reason for it? Just licensing?

Anyone else put off by the 'sanitized' Nazis? Not a single swastika in sight? Not a single portrait of Adolph on the walls of Castle Wolfenstein? The original didn't shirk from controversy, so why are we as a 'progressive' society so afraid of revisiting our history in popular media? It's not like they are trying to portray the bad guys as anything but the bad guys in this game anyway.

By removing all Nazi symbolism from this game (and many others in the past decade or so) we are just giving these symbols and the movement they represented much more power and much more meaning than they ever really had, or desereved.

This way, they get to sell it in Germany. On the downside, it looks more like you're fighting the Wehrmacht than the Nazis, which make for a less morally compelling story.

Great concept but requires real money and a real team of devs to do it justice.
Yeah, $15K is probably 1% of what's needed to do this justice.

Love, love, LOVE my Note 4. Of course the phablet (I FUCKING HATE, HATE, HATE THAT TERM!!!) is the future. I'll be diving into the Note 5, most likely. Perfect size, and plenty of power.

Yeah, I like the form factor, but hate the name too. Thing is, the alternative was worse:

"TABLONE"

A smart cockring that automatically tweets a picture and the amount of time spent on the current act of copulation would sell more units than sliced bread ever did.

Sadly we don't live in a society where Instagraming that would let you keep your job.
