MOBA's are on the decline. EA got in a bit late to the party.

I wouldn't say they're on the decline. But they're certainly saturated.

What I wouldn't give for another iteration of SupCom.

Classify the basterds as common carriers under Title II!!

Either that or use eminent domain to "buy" all the infrastructure, then open it up to open competition to whomever wanted to rent bandwidth from the gov't and offer a service.

Catch Monsters is an adult re-imagining of Pokémon

An adult re-imagining? So, uh, all the "monsters" you catch are sexy furries?

I've yet to see anything good about this game. All I see is them getting more money.
One has to ask, do you even like videogames? Because if you can't find anything good about Star Citizen then one has to question whether your expectations are at all reasonable.

I think a lot of people don't realise how far this game has come. If you go back and watch the original Kickstarter presentation the graphical fidelity is a fraction of what they have today - it looks like an entirely different game. I remember being astounded by the graphical fidelity on display when it was first revealed yet now it's amazing how dated it looks. The game is nearly unrecognisable from what it originally was and that's a good thing.

Just look at the Cutlass Blue ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNYCRy4k9sE ) and compare it to the quality of the original ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhsgiliheP0 ).

I'm going to invoke Poe's Law, and say that Steele is just trolling.

This game went from a "probably wont get it, unless steam puts it on massive sale"

to

"instant buy"

Agree. 3rd person games just don't feel right to me on PC. FPS FTW.

I got so annoyed when I tried to use Frags4Fun as my PSN name and discovered that someone actually stole my name. I made this name up a very long time ago. Not sure if I should be flattered or annoyed. Anyways, I'm Frags4Fun_47 on there.

So, uh, were there 46 other Frags4Funs out there? Or were you born in 1947? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, let's not start sucking each others dicks quite yet. If they were the best, they wouldn't be charging $60 for an HD version of a year old game.

I know, right? Because the 100s of hours you get from a year-old GTA game is worth much less than a new version of CoD.

Seriously, watch the video. They've done a massive amount of work to make this happen. Yes, I realize they're rich fucks already, but if there's ever a game worth paying full price for, this is it.

Just an FYI for those that are waiting, or maybe forgot. Binding of Isaac Rebirth out today.

Dash boards are unique per car model. Same for planes.

I'm just flabbergasted...and only two weeks away!


Yeah that is all freaking awesome. Unique dashboards per car, my God. I'm going to drive my Sesto Elemento for DAYS in first person mode.

I'm jelly come January. May even think about upgrading to 4K...

Can you imagine the PC version with Oculus Rift support? Shocked

In less depressing news, great article on XKCD. I wonder if education wouldn't be in a better state in this country if more teachers attempted to keep their students engaged occasionally with those type of ridiculous speculation 'What Ifs'.

Of course Munroe is a smart and talented guy, we'd have to pay teachers a hell of a lot more to get a large number of smart and talented teachers...

I agree that increasing salaries gets you a better quality of teacher for sure. That being said, my kids' teachers have been excellent with only a few exceptions. Teaching is a calling for many, and they do it with passion even though the salary isn't the greatest. There is definitely room for improving our education system, but kids today read at a grade higher vs. the 1970s, and do math at 2 grades higher. Also, "parenting" classes wouldn't hurt. How to Help your Child Do Well In School 101 should be taught in high school, along with a whole bunch of other parenting classes. We have so much knowledge about how to raise and motivate children, yet for arguably the most important task a human will perform (raising a child to adulthood) we do almost no education.

Well, except for Obamacare. Can only blame Obama for that. Assuming you don't like it, that is.

Didn't Romney institute basically the same thing in Massachusetts?

He did, but only because there was massive pressure from the overwhelmingly Democratic legislature in liberal Mass to do so. I don't see him doing this at a national level. National healthcare has been a Dem goal for decades, but it has never been on the Repub national platform. He would have mostly pursued standard Repub legislative goals: reducing taxes, cutting social services, and increasing military funding.

Wake-up call comedy for today's elections and the two party scripted contest.

The Illusion of Choice dividing Americans like leading cattle to the slaughter-house.

And the words of the great George Carlin.

Meanwhile both 'main' parties are wildly unpopular.

Polls show that Congress is less popular than dog poop, toenail fungus, hemorrhoids, cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, North Korea, BP during the Gulf Oil Spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.

And as everyone knows, and what many had been saying years before that recent 'official' study came out, Americans have little actual power.

I wonder if a third party will win with any states considered the unpopularity contests?

The problem is, just like our ISP problem, there is very little choice. It's between "bad corrupt politician" and "worse corrupt politician." As you say, the monied interests completely control the legislative process not the citizens, and with decisions like "Corporations are people" and Citizens United, the situation is only getting worse. Basically what we need is a complete overhaul of how elections are run, but you think the people who got into power using the current system will vote for that?

Voting here in California is pointless, especially if you are moderate or lean right.


Think how moderates and liberals feel in Texas!!

In truth I feel all voting is pointless. All of the bad shit that happened under Obama would have happened under Romney or McCain.

Well, except for Obamacare. Can only blame Obama for that. Assuming you don't like it, that is.

Nope, from what I've heard it auto scales the resolution, sometimes below 1080p but from what I've seen you really can't see any difference. Let's face it, they both suck ass
Thinking about getting a gaming desktop (with 970gtx) again...

You should get a gaming desktop. It has never been a better time to be a PC gamer.

I keep seeing that as 'HatEful Boyfriend'....and then think how conveneient that it came out around the same time as Gamer Gate then realize that's not what it says and feel guilty for putting the game down without even knowing what it's really about...This is what GG does to me! Ahhhh! Wreck

=-Rigs-=

Heh, 'hato' is 'pigeon' in Japanese. It's one of those Japanese dating games, but with pigeons instead of people. I understand it has dozens and dozens of story lines, making multiple play-throughs somewhat different each time.
