No. Dungeon Siege 1.

No extro, no movie, no credits rolling after finishing Gom, just one single text screen. Just look it up on Youtube

It's impossible to say with any accuracy at all, but it would be really interesting to know what North America would be like now if the Confederate States had left the US. With the US lead largely on US liberal lines (which is still quite right-wing by global standards, in so far as "left" and "right" isn't bullshit) and the confederate states lead on some sort of libertarian/Tea Party combination.

We all think we know of course. We all think that <<my ideology here>> would be strong and stable while <<other ideology>> would be economically crippled. Of course <<my ideology>> would be the land of the free while <<other ideology>> would be an authoritarian nightmare because one of the weird things about the US left versus right shit slinging is that both sides think the other are bigoted fascists. Perhaps because some members of each side are bigoted fascists, but <<other ideology>> definitely has more. <<ideology-affirming TV network>> said so.

That doesn't work because one of those nations would have institutionalized slavery, (provided it wasn't done away with later) So the whole "who is more free" thing would only apply if you were talking to white people, heh.

France is fine? With a growth rate of 0.0%? What would be great be? What would bad be?

Let me be more specific, 'just fine' can obviously be very ambiguous, France is plodding along and while growth hasn't been explosive, it HAS been there (commendable when that isn't the case compared to the norm) and has been reducing their defecits quite a bit in the meantime, while avoiding explosive unemployment like others have suffered, which also means growth isn't as important as it is in these other situation (though it is still good.) They seem to be on the road to recovery and in this regard they are doing 'just fine'

Also I don't know where you got a zero number, unless it's outdated data. The growth isn't big but its there, which is better than many can say.

You guys realise that the EU hasn't actually disappeared into a black hole? Some of the countries have very serious debt problems, sure, but we're still here. I'm still here.

Most of the EU has economic growth and only the basket cases (Greece and Cyprus) are showing big problems. Spain and Italy are still struggling, not as much but as they're much larger countries any problems are magnified.

And they need to deal with the Euro, which makes their situation totally different than ours, as we have control over our currency, and for many of those EU nations that cannot be said. The Comparisons just don't hold up, there are too many differences when you're not in charge of your own currency.

Also there are many EU nations that are recovering just fine. France, for example.

Beamer, I wouldn't say conservatives/tea party-types were up in arms of the soda ordinance in NYC-mischaracterization. But, they did how asinine it was that Bloomberg feels people are incompetent to decide for themselves what size cola they wish to drink.

"Control your reproductive systems"? Are you speaking about the killing of unborn children? We can all agree pedophilia/sexual exploitation and predation is disgusting and reprehensible, but on the same hand the killing of an unborn is something that should be protected?

A person can be tried for double homicide if a pregnant woman is murdered. Isn't life worth protecting or has society become so deprived of humanity?


"The tea party gets people up in arms over controlling stupid shit, like how large a soda you can buy, while making its party members believe it's ok to control the shit that matters, like your reproductive system."

Called it, Beamer!

We don't need 100% of states to pass a new amendment to limit the Federal leviathan, only 2/3's majority to propose only 3/4's majority to pass. Not easy, but doable.

You assume that just because people aren't happy with the government most people want the same thing you do. I think you could get all those people to agree they aren't happy about it, but if you think they all want to move further right like yourself, then you'd be mistaken, which is why what you propose is a pipe dream. States rights is not a thing most Americans are concerned with, which is why the tea party is a marginal group of people in comparison to the US population (that's not to say they don't have influence, of course.)

I find it funny when liberals mention the Koch brothers. They are like a drop of water in the ocean compared to the amount of money George Soros invests in left wing progressive groups such as Media Matters and SEIU. Then MSNBC gets all their "news" (marching orders) from Media Matters and the Obama administration.

I also find it funny when liberals in Texas bitch about Republicans. It must really suck living in a state with such low unemployment and no income taxes. If you're so miserable come up here to Connecticut. 30 years of liberal Democrat rule has rendered my state broke and all the businesses are leaving to...gasp...TEXAS.

Yet, nobody was arguing that one of these Soros backed group was grassroots movement, as some constantly try to do with the tea party so it's not really the same thing at all.

Hahaha.

I guess he's never heard of the Koch brothers.
The Tea Party was grass roots, true. Then, as mentioned, it became the tool of billionaires looking to control us.

The sad thing is people think it's trying to do the opposite. The tea party gets people up in arms over controlling stupid shit, like how large a soda you can buy, while making its party members believe it's ok to control the shit that matters, like your reproductive system.

Look over there, a three headed monkey!

Indeed so, we could claim that there were angry people complaining for a week and then those people were appropriated into what would become the tea party apparatus.

I mean when there is a cable network Sharing rally times and dates constantly, and then also proceed to do some sort of Emceeing for some of those events, it's hard case to make.

1. The same "8 core" CPUs that AMD has been selling to PC makers for years?

Actually as I uderstand it, it's a tablet CPU, so it most PC gamers already have a CPU that can match or outperform the console CPUs.

As many have said, the only people who will be shocked to hear something like this are naive consumers who gobble up marketing materials.

They learned it the hard way, but at least they understood the message and will eat their crow in the end. Now, add an offline mode to D3, and you deserve another chance, ActiBlizz.

I think that again it's all about the money, not the balance of the game.

They know they can sell more copies of the expansion by doing this, and they clearly think that will net them more money then keeping the AH open with an expansion that less people would buy otherwise.

So, why does this game need to be online all the time now? I mean the reasoning was flimsy at best before, but now...

I still wonder if this was from a no name company with a different name if opinions would different.

They'd be different in that nobody would be playing it. Instead we'd get posts with more honest assessments. Turns out when people aren't already drinking the kool-aid it takes a bit of convincing.

Sure, there would still be people playing it, but I'd say the success of Diablo 3 has mostly to do with the name on the box, just as those who DON'T like it for X, Y or Z reason, may not like it because of the name on the box.

Out of interest are Steam titles cheaper for you than physical copies? I ask because 99% of the time they aren't for me (talking about on release) - heck, even if I buy a steam key from another site (Greenman for example) it's usually cheaper and by a wide margin.

So they are cheaper for you? I would say just because you're buying a steam product off of Amazon or GMG doesn't mean it doesn't count as cheaper.

Creston wrote on Sep 5, 2013, 13:25:
What I can't figure out is why Steam let's GMG sell Steam keys for 30% less than they go for on Steam.

I always figured it had something to do with a bulk purchase of keys, either through an arrangement with the publisher or Valve themselves, I couldn't say for sure of course.

Dear Sony and Microsoft,

Just put a 2nd damned HDMI out on your boxes so I can play multiplayer locally on a separate TV/monitor. Or as well as splitscreen, 2 tv's - four on each, there's a use for 8 controllers.

Seriously how hard can that be?

Yours ever hopefully that you'll actually do some basic things that better gaming.

Coldbricks

How hard can it be to run a game on two screens that was designed to run on one screen at 30fps?

Pretty difficult, I imagine.

You won't be able to rotate the camera. It's 2.5D, so a 2D background with some 3D elements. There was a vid on youtube a few months ago, but I can't find it now.

Every time there is an update it makes me glad to have backed this project.

That's close, but the vid I remember is them actually rotating the game engine so that you saw that the background was 2D, but the waterfall was 3D.

It's the same one you're talking about, I think. He shows that off at 3:45 in.

Can you back up any of this or is that straight from your ass? Jade Raymond has a really impressive resume and reputation. You can get the former based on looks sometimes but people will resent you.

Guys like you and Beamer can pander all you like but it's not going to get you a date with her so spare us the bullshit.

Confirmed then, it's from your ass.

Her resume speaks for itself, but let's ignore all that and just pretend her attractiveness is the only reason she has a job, not the laundry list of successful titles she's been involved in throughout the years. Rolleyes

DCS: World is where its at and its modules obviously.
I've just been getting back into flight sims (last one I played - and loved - was 1990's Red Baron).

I have tried both World of Warplanes as well as War Thunder, and I just checked out the site for DCS: World since you mentioned it.
So essentially you get the base program then can install modules, new and old, into that program?

I'm pretty impressed by some of the features of WoWP, but I'm open to trying another sim.

Apples and oranges. DCS is the MOST accurate sim you will find. WoWP and War Thunder while fun, are basically arcade games. You will need some kind of joystick as a minimum to fly some of the planes in DCS. The basic program contains one (free) plane that you can fly but its a russian Su-25 which features russian avionics and is a nightmare to learn.

What were your thoughts on the 'full real battles' in war thunder, compared to other flight-sim games? I haven't messed with it myself, . but, I was curious about those who are into flight sims, think of it.
