Cutter, you noob, you forgot to link to your patreon at the end of making shit up to claim your special victims bonus.

Dammit! You're right. Thanks! I need to remember it pays to be a professional victim!

Do you ever feel embarrassed that you're posting about how women subjugate and humiliate you all the time? Man up dude.

If you believe a male never has a right to act as a male

I feel bad that you have to dress in a pink ballerina and tuck under every day. Have you tried calling the police on your femenazi captors?

The threats of violence coming out of gamergate have got to stop, or else someday somebody's actually going to be crazy enough to commit violence at a gaming conference.

Just wondering, what are the actual prices per month in the US?

I pay $75 (plus tax, so around $81) for 30 Mbit/s + telephone service.

PHJF wrote on Jan 2, 2015, 21:34:
The gist was the fundamentals are all there and fantastic but all the bells and whistles you really want and need aren't and won't be for a long time yet

Basically what every review echos: great foundation, total lack of content. A recurring theme among early access games is to arbitrarily release 1.0 and then promise "ongoing development".

I'm just playing solo mode, and there are more than enough surprises and places to explore. By "content" you mean what, Captain Shephard having a contrived conversation with an alien? If you haven't played the original Elite in the 80s, you might not be into it. But I've been playing for 20 or 30 hours, and continue to be amazed on how they've modernized and improved on the classic game.

Once I have a couple million credits, I might even play open world, and things might really get interesting.

rofl...yeah but how are you going to get around the NSA backdoor conveniently placed directly inside your router?

I built my own using an old Q6600 based system I had laying around and Linux from Scratch. While I can't say with 100% certainty that the NSA doesn't have very deep roots in to every binary used in the project, I am reasonably certain that they do not. Following the Hardened Linux from Scratch method, I feel comfortable with the security of that router.

Linux From Scratch is a huge amount of work. Gentoo Linux is basically LFS except all the downloading and compiling is automated, and they have a hardened version as well. You still have to trust the Gentoo developers, but it is a completely community oriented project, no big company support. I trust 'em.

OpenBSD is another option: http://opensslrampage.org/

Remember; Bitcoin is mutable. The functionality and features that come under the 'Bitcoin' umbrella will likely differ significantly in the future from the current offering. Bitcoin now will not be Bitcoin tomorrow.

But, bitcoin is open source. If the user community doesn't like a feature change, they can simply refuse to use the new version of the software, and fork the source code. This almost happened recently, when the bitcoin developers wanted to hardcode in transaction fees (which are currently voluntary). There was a huge backlash in the community, and the devs backed down.

I could have sworn they released an updated version like a year or so ago? With more missions, more adventures, etc.

Space Rangers 2: reboot was released a few years ago.

I can confirm that Cutter, Hellbinder, and RollinThundr all backed this movie at high funding levels.
Space Captain did too! Oh, wait...

Do yourself a favour and put that troll on ignore. I can confirm that's all he is and all he does. It's pathetic really.

Actually, he was banned. Then he came back as Space Admiral, but I haven't heard from him in many moons.

EDIT: Oh, Space Admiral was banned too. Maybe he gave up?

Damn that's too bad. I know he had a lot of posts that were deleted before I could read them. But he also was the most consistently anti-homophobic poster going back a long time, long before "ghey" slurs went out of fashion.

Holy shit... "Christ Centered Gamer". Really? I scanned the article just to see what the hell some religious nut would say about Blood Dragon and it's about what you'd expect:

"The morality issues keep me from recommending this game to others."

I would love to read their review of Quake 1.

Also, the reviewer is "Blue" -- is that this site's owner?

I read the review. He really spends very little time talking about religious/moral issues compared to some other games he's reviewed, though his "morality score" is accurate. I think he may spend less time thinking about moral issues when he has fun playing the game.

What about 4870?

Kuru - a neurodegenerative disease found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual. This practice stopped in 1960, but cases of kuru were reported for many years afterward because the disease has a long incubation period. The signs of kuru include paralysis, blindness and madness, and it is always terminal.
