Watching this train wreck unfold is more fun than the game could ever possibly be.

Meh, I'm not enjoying it that much. I really want another STALKER game, not this BS. Also, I hate reality TV, and this is the gaming version of that. It's like 1bad sez: "It's just a bunch of mystic bovine scatology to me."

Art director Mathias Wiese also notes that five years of looking at war images can be rough on the developers, which would have left them reluctant to make a sequel even if Spec Ops had been a huge hit.

I've been interested in this game for a long time because it sounds like they'd taken a truly unique approach. However, I'd also put it off knowing that unique approach would not be fun in the traditional sense. I just picked it up in the humble bundle, so now when I'm in the mood I can jump right in. Just not sure when that mood will strike...

"They are now claiming that our success on Kickstarter is fabricated, whilst conveniently failing to mention that people are using multiple accounts to make a bunch of 1 dollar pledges, and every time a new backer comes along, they remove 1 or 2 pledges, so that it looks like our sum is increasing without any new backers."

Wow. Just, wow.

The truth is that things are getting better at the same time they are getting worse. On the one hand crime is low, longevity is high, technology has increased quality of life. On the other hand global warming will be catastrophic, American democracy is completely compromised, wealth inequality is increasing, population growth is outstripping food production, water shortages are real, many critical resources are at or past peak. On balance I agree with Cutter. The positives aren't enough to overcome the negatives. Most of our problems are of our own making and solvable but I don't see humanity doing the hard work required. We're going to keep on partying until the house burns down around us. Only will humanity collectively realize they've got no place to eat or sleep.

it sorta irks me when people just use MEMES as parlance for something purely on a second-hand basis.. so you get people writing shit like "wah-lah" on comment threads because theyve heard it before but have no fucking clue what the actual word is, just how it sounds

or how people say "they drank the koolaid" when describing people who swallow something hook line and sinker... without any clue of how that phrase actually refers to a mass suicide event

pretty much everyone does it.. its even more iritating when they try to get on a high horse about how their incomplete and fragmentary "understanding" of some turn of phrase or whatever is actually the one and only truth
I don't know that it's necessary to know the origin of a phrase in order to be able to use it. As long as you can use it correctly it should be fine.

in one context, saying something is a "meme" is the modern way of saying something is "trendy"

in another context, it refers specifically to one-liners and gif images, or combinations of them

but the idea of a "meme" originally refers to quite a bit more than "ORLY?" pics and hamburger cats etc

Yes but even in its original meaning can you use it to refer to a product that everyone buys? All the kids around here have and play with kendamas. I would say kendamas are a fad or a trend but not a meme.

What the hell is the problem with DayZ? It's a goddamn positive development in gaming. It requires patience, it's not from a AAA studio, it has a great deal of customization available, and it's hard. This is what PC gaming is supposed to have in spades.
I think the problem is that it's not close to being finished and the completion date isn't even on the horizon.

DayZ is the current meme, like Minecraft was. It's the in thing to buy atm.

"That word, I do not think it means what you think it means."

I think the word you're looking for is "fad."

Blue used to go to QuakeCon? When?

Just a few months ago he posted pics of himself at QC from the late 90s. He's the evil looking one with the beard.

I get it. First impressions are important. And QCon is a friendly and forgiving audience. So what you feel like showing to superfans you might not want to release to the general public. The Internet isn't prone to nuanced analysis and opinion. Still I'm curious.

...would have bought it 6 months ago at full price if it had bot support (like so many thousands have asked for through the years).

No bot support = no sale

Yeah, I can't even bring myself to get this at 75% off without bots. They're just stupid.

They could start their own porn site. That should reduce taxes and increase their operating budget.

And if it was pirated, they could find out EXACTLY who did it!

It's certainly not the greatest mmog ever but since when is that the new standard for playing or enjoying anything. Do people actually not go to movies because it's not the "new" greatest movie ever.

Movies are a poor comparison to MMOs. You can take a chance on a movie, and if it doesn't work out, you've only lost a couple of hours. With an MMO, you go in with your friends, and if it doesn't work out then you've all lost a lot of money and hundreds of hours. It's more important in the case of an MMO to make a deliberate and considered choice.

Surprised it's not F2P yet.

They are milking the last subs a bit more, just wait another 5-6 month.

Last year some of us were guessing when this would go F2P. I think I said after a year. I think Cutter said after 6 months, but I don't recall.

Free map is pretty cool. I'll own this at some point. I just got Sniper Elite 2, but have only played it once. I'll wait until I get through that one before I get this one. It'll be a while.
