RIP, Mr. Lee. Thanks for all the great roles. What a great life, doing what you love all the way to 93, and he seemed in great health all the way to the end.

I've had everything from "cant launch any programs" to "the taskbar disappears entirely" and that's on the slow channel, the fast channel is constant bugs/breakage. I hope they will pin it down but the preview is really rough around the edges at times. Oh well I guess we'll see in a month.

Hopefully it will have fewer bugs than Vista.

Oh man. There's one game I'd pay $100 for a remake of

Didn't they remake it already?

(Just kidding!)

Yeah, unique style and gameplay. I don't think there's really been much like it since then. It is a prime candidate for a modern version.

Act of War Gold is actually on sale over at GoG for $5 right now. I thought I owned it but I don't see it in any of my accounts. Might have to pick that up.

Is it just me, or are transparent displays pretty limited in their utility. I know we see them in sci fi movies all the time (Children of Men, Avatar, Avengers, etc.) but they don't seem useful for getting actual work done. It's too distracting to see what's behind the screen.

I do lurv me some near-future RTS. And this is the same guys as the Wargame series, which is pretty good. The only caveat is that this is the follow-up to Act of War, which was just okay. That was a long time ago, so these guys must have learned a trick or two since then.

I thought Act of War (and its expansion) were pretty good. Better than most other RTSes of the time.

Hmm, I remember it being kind of buggy and the maps being a bit small. It's been a long time though, and I was playing a lot of Sup Com around the same time.

Here's the Act of Aggression video for the US Army faction.

Because of course it will. It's impossible to make it work with any other OS.

Not sure if this is hitting major articles yet, but I just got word that after the White House promised to sign in a new law regarding the ban of bulk data collection (the inaccurately named "freedom act"), 4 hours later the Administration asked the FISA Court to ignore Federal Court finding mass surveillance illegal and again grant the NSA the same power it had to collect phone records of every US citizen for 6 months. Here's a short 'tweet' on it.

There's a special annex in technology hell for the dreaded "known issue." You know, those wonderful moments when we encounter an bug, and find out that other users have been reporting the same problem for years, but never enough of them to actually inspire the company responsible to address the cause. Yesterday in adding an album I accidentally pointed iTunes

Full stop. I found your problem.

People like to make fun of the Zune, but avoiding iTunes is the reason I got one back in the day. I regret nothing.

Zune was actually pretty good. It was MS's poor support for it that doomed it.

Chaos Ride Removed From Steam Due To Negative Reviews…

Weird, it doesn't look like a bad game. I wonder what people complained about.

Funny, I always thought the original Homeworld game was loosely based on the story of Moses (Karan S'jet) leading the Jews (Kushan) out of the desert (Kharak) to the promised land (Hiigara) while being harassed by the Egyptians (Taiidan). Surprised that this didn't get mentioned in the review.

Where is this all leading? If PoE sold more copies than D:OS or Witcher 3, would that make it a better game? If it sells less is it suddenly terrible? Jerykk's points seem pretty clear to me and that's coming from someone who has argued with him him countless times in the past. Neither game was a mainstream success and PoEs sales being what they are shouldn't surprise anyone nor is it indicative of its quality (or lack thereof depending on your view). These games are a niche market now and POE is no exception. Perhaps if it was released at a different point or during a Steam sale it would've done better but that's in the past. The bigger question is did it make enough to do a sequel? If not then its unfortunate because I think it has a lot of promise and just needs refinement.

Right, that was my contention: did it make enough to justify a sequel. I'm not sure that it did. I guess they could do another KS and see how much they get, but they'd better wait until folks are jonesing again. People are probably pretty satisfied with this kind of game right now given that we've seen a bunch come out: either new IP, or repackages of older games like BG and IWD.

The single player campaign sounded really good, and the game play looked a bit like a combination of C & C and Sup Com. Yeah, I can't afford to buy games at full price right now, but this one is high on my list.

A shame about the name though, I'm sure that turned a lot of people off.
