Define Heavy Web Users?

I constantly see reports that 1% are using 99% of the bandwidth - Comcast claims that 350GB a month should be more than enough for any household. So, how much bandwidth do you use a month?

My house uses 600 GB a month.

So... they made an engine that only supports 30% of the market.... according to this -> http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey and think that's a good thing?


I only care about me (just being honest). Everyone else should upgrade so as to not hold back the gaming revolution, and this time it will be televised with V-Sync set to on.

My friend and I in college used to argue about if Half-Life on release would be a defining moment in Video games. I think time has proven me right.

I was going to upgrade my IPad 3 if this one had 802.11ac - it doesn't -might as well wait for the next one since my 3 works just fine.

I've got an idea for a ship I'll call the Penetrator. It's good for getting into tight spaces, like in game asteroid mining. Wet spaces, like a Water World or Rain Forest type planet. It leaves a hell of a mess sometimes too, due to a faulty reactor drive unit (think Firefly). Look for the Penetrator to be the most popular ship in the game!

These same kids at Foxconn did a great job assembling my Iphone and IPAD, both still work after a couple of years, I have no doubt my new PS4 will operate reliably as well. Thanks Foxconn, I appreciated you helping Sony keep the price down.

I've got my Sacrifice disk somewhere, I've got to dig that out...


You can get a new copy from gog.com for a couple of bucks, runs on windows 7 too.

The four best RTSs are, in order:

1. Sacrifice
2. Total Annihilation
3. Dungeon Keeper
4. Warcraft

The first two never had sequels, and I never understood why.

Sacrifice may have been the greatest and least appreciated RTS game of all time.

Total Annihilation had an excellent expansion pack, the Core Contingency, as well as free weekly units that made the game seem fresh for a long time, unfortunately it had to deal with Warcraft II's popularity. I remember in college no one would play TA with me, but Warcraft LAN games until dawn were a nightly occurrence. Good times.

No, huge hit in Europe - just like Hasselhoff.

Wow, the old bastard wants to put America into another needless war so his pals can continue to loot the US taxpayers and steal Syrian resources and he's laughing it off like it's all a big joke.

Do they have resources to steal?

Just finished reading the review and I'd agree with the writer that it looks like a horrible job was done programming this game. What he didn't answer is if all his complaints were fixed in a patch would the game be fun and playable. I hope so, I've been looking forward to this one for a while now.

I'd think that this weeks negative previews of the game will hurt pre-sales. Not sure why they decided to remove jumping from the game, but big mistake.

I like that they are giving out Steam keys to owners of the console version. Not sure about the game, but giving away keys for a duplicate purchase is a smart move.

Nothing wrong with zombie games, just rather play a good one, which this doesn't appear to be. 7 Days to Die looks much superior (and is in its last 24 hours of KS).

Agreed! This looks horrible. I hate a game that doesn't take itself seriously.

I'm hoping they dumb it down.
I still haven't been able to sit through the hour long youtube tutorials for Crusader Kings II.

Creston wrote on Aug 8, 2013, 11:34:

I'm no lawyer, so perhaps I'm wrong, but a gag order by a judge means you can't discuss the case in question and the legal ramifications of it. I would seriously doubt that you would be allowed continue developing your game, but then somehow not being allowed to talk about said development. Even US law can't be that weird.


I'm not an attorney myself, but I do work for a large law firm and I have a lot of legal experience because of this - my opinion after reading the developers post (and being a backer myself) is that the developers have been advised by their attorneys "keep your mouth shut until this is over".

You don't need a gag order from a judge. Human nature is to talk about problems, that's also a good way to open yourself up to further damage or to make a problem worse.

Unfortunate. This is the last KS I kicked in to, as I loved the idea of setting up my own barricaded fortress. Maybe this is a Phil Fish situation, where a former dev or financier wanted to take their ball and go home.

I'm in on this one too. I don't get the feeling from following the update that the developer is anything except enthusiastic. Their original pitch video showed that considerable preliminary work had been done already.

I read through what info there was this morning and it seems like a lot of speculation on what the problem is, no one knows for sure. At least development work continues.

Can't wait. I bought during the Alpha and got for a good price - besides checking out the new engine and the game mechanics I haven't really played - looking forward to this one!

Honestly, I don't give a shieet about Half Life no more. It's an old game that was awesome for it's time but really is just another typical FPS these days...

This is what everyone thought last time too. Then Half-Life 2 blew the doors down. BOOM. It will happen again too.
