This game still exists?

Uh... yes? It's one of if not THE most popular RTS games out there, with a huge esports scene and the final expansion Legacy of the Void just recently entering beta.

Just because YOU don't play something doesn't mean a lot of other people don't, or aren't looking forward to the next big release.

News Comments > Steamship Ahoy - RUNNING WITH RIFLES

I tried the demo earlier this week and after a few minutes was hooked and bought the game. Played a little coop multiplayer last night, it's a lot of fun, but OMG the AI must have been hacking, SO many deaths

If I had one complaint it would be the limited selection of weapons and equipment you get at first. Takes a while to level up enough to use the good stuff.

Wonder if my GTX 970 SLIs can handle this at 4K. Probably not, thanks to the 3.5GB thing. GTA IV was a total VRAM hog.

You could get WoL and HotS for $10 each directly from Blizzard around Black Friday last year.

Everyone should try the demo -- it's fantastic. Multiplayer in the full game is great as well, very smooth, which is amazing to me considering the amount of stuff going on.

WHAT?! Why did no one tell me about the ToeJam and Earl Kickstarter?! Oh well, glad it's funded. The original was so cool back in the day.

This game was so epic back in 1993 I couldn't believe you could set trees on fire during a gun fight lol was mind blowing back then.


Absolutely epic indeed.

The depth of the game for the time was amazing, and once you eventually got up to miniguns it was an absolute blast.
For the style of the game, I didn't play anything that even came close for years.

I'm afraid I won't be playing this however. With the original running at what? max 640/480 or thereabouts? my eyes would bleed spinning it up on a 2560/1440 monitor.
The game would need some serious reworking for my tastes.

Check out Satellite Reign: http://store.steampowered.com/app/268870/

Modern spiritual successor to Syndicate.

NHL 94 was one of my absolute favorites. I played what was probably my greatest prank on my brothers when I told them that "Pull" was a really good goalie. If you don't know, what that actually does is pull your goalie out of the game, leaving it wide open. Hilarity ensues.

2x 970gtx would ABSOLUTELY be enough for 4K. One 980 gets a solid 30-35 FPS in say modded ultra watchdogs. 2x 970s would fill 60 FPS on all ultra settings with ease, and it fits a great price range for value, 2x 970gtx is almost the same as 1x 980 gtx.

What are you talking about? 2x 970s is "almost 1x 980"? lol

Speaking of Ron Gilbert games, check out Mostly Walking, a show where Day9 and friends play through classic adventure games like The Dig and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis in awkwardly hilarious fashion.

God this looks horrible. And not just the graphics, but the arcadiness is so extreme.

Those cars brake and corner better than an F1 car. Ridiculous.

If this rubs off on Project Cars I'll be steering clear of that as well.

HAHA I'm only a "douche" because this epic double fail was American $$$ and an American life that went KABOOM. If this would have happened to the Russians or the Chinese, and if instead of los dolares a bunch of Rubles or Renminbi got burnt, and if instead of an Amerikanski a Ruski or a gook would have KABOOM'ed, then you'd be laughing y'alls asses off like the little Beavis's and Buttheads that you are.

Sir have you been drinking?

Amazing! Your last name must be Holmes or Watson. And there was also the Orbital Science KABOOM earlier this week when roughly $200 million went *poof*.
So if this game is an accurate representation of real space agency directing then there must be some correlation between spectacular KABOOM and lotsa money.

Dude! Logic!

Just doesn't seem like a cool thing to be making fun of but whatever.

So this game is all about maxing the cash that goes KABOOM in the end, right?

BTW here is Dr. Aldrin's recent AMA: Link

That NAS review is hilarious notice with 2 absolute high-end 5TB WD HDD's on idle 48C

Operating temperature in spec listed as: 40C

So it's already running hotter than it was designed for, on idle.

If you ever ran a long job (torrents/downloads/large folder copying) you will UTTERLY regret buying that It'll have zero temperature stability. IN summer that thing will run so hot it will be a danger to the HDD's. Notice how mr reviewer did not check SMART temperature info on the HDD's which if the system is on 55C (as he writes in later pages) would mean the HDD's were ABOVE THAT.

If you want to bake your HDD's this is the NAS to buy.

I've had a really bad experience with a QNAP NAS, I would never buy them again. And especially a fan-less NAS sounds good on paper, but unless you have it sit in a constant air-stream it'll run extremely hot

Yeah I don't really see any point in buying a cheap off the shelf NAS, they just eat HDDs. I have an Iomega ix2 that only lasted a couple of months before toasting one of the drives to death.

Better to just build a server machine with plenty of drives, airflow, and as much CPU power as you want for e.g. transcoding and Plex/MediaBrowser serving.

I'm wondering how many hours it would take to walk from S to N on the map, in first person.

Why would it take any longer?
