Ugh, stuck at low resolution due to some bug...along with 32 pages of other people in the Steam forum suffering the same problem. Not a good sign.

Wow, a soldier and reservist murdered in Canada this week and now some lunatic attacked cops with a hatchet in NYC today. Ebola looks to be spreading. Sigh. Things seems to be getting pretty crazy out there atm. Stay safe people.

Seriously? You're talking 2 people out of almost 400 million. And Ebola is not "spreading" in North America. It's arriving here from out of country and being dealt with. What the hell? Crime is as low as it has ever been. Disease is as controlled as it has ever been. Just because the media is hyping shit for clicks doesn't mean things are getting crazy. When did you start to buy into that bullshit?

There are serious problems out there. Global warming is already killing thousands and will result in the deaths of millions perhaps 100s of millions of people through drought, extreme weather, famine, flooding, war, etc. And there are many more: government corruption, corporate corruption, income inequality, poverty, healthcare failures, nuclear weapons, etc. etc. Don't be like the pilot who puts his attention on why the light on switch 17 is broken while his plane augers in.

Ebola is spreading in Africa and other people around the globe are contracting it. Bacteria and viruses are getting stronger while antibiotics are getting weaker. Antibiotic resistance is a major global problem that's only getting worse.


Crime reporting is down - and estimated 40% of all crime is never reported to begin with.

10 US Cities Where Violent Crime is Soaring.

And if crime is so low, how do you explain the booming prison population? Crime has fallen if anything because we live in a virtual police state now where you're always under surveillance. Makes it much more difficult to commit crime. So that's the tradeoff, safer society but at what price? The US is in a state of perpetual war now. There's always and enemy somewhere that must be fought. Oceania now exists.

So yeah, things are getting crazier out there. The sky may not be falling, but you really need to take off your rose coloured glasses and do a reality check because all those things you listed just futher exacerbate the problem and drive people to do crazy shit.

And now another school shooting today. Oh yeah, things are just peachy out there.

I was really impressed by the Total Biscuit video actually. Like Civ 5, I expect this game to really come into its own with expansions, so with that in mind I will wait before buying.

My thoughts exactly. While I'll grab it at some point, I'm in no rush.

Let's hope there'll be an SDK.. because if CIV5 was any indication there'll be ZERO fundamentally different mods for this.

I watched a pretty long (3 hour) complete let's play and the game seems to be absolutely dumbed down. You basically control your advancement per research and quests (based on buildings you build and units you kill) ONLY. And Unit modification is only a dumbed down CIV5 perk system with a 2-way or 3-way unit upgrade choice when it comes down to it.

But what really bothered me was how lazy everything looked. The factions are cookie cutter identical, gone are the different city styles from Alpha Centauri per race (now only per affinity), the Aliens are Starship Trooper style cannon fodder (actually, literally starship trooper style bugs) and the various factions don't even have any identity: You could call them AI 1 AI 2 AI 3 and you'd not notice a difference between them. You won't get a angry letter that you just destroyed half the planets aliens... and the win screen doesn't even have sodding stats.

game devs becoming lazy and this is so clearly a CIV5 mod (where the modders got the actual SDK) that it is sad. This is nothing a mod team couldn't have done if there'd be a decent CIV5 SDK

All I got from watching that complete playthrough (on second highest difficulty I might add) was that I want to watch starship troopers again ;p

Would you like to know more?

Wonder why this would need a greenlight campaign, I thought the first was considered a wild success. Also worth noting, it is stuff like this that makes Indy cool. Totally fresh idea, the first I'm speaking of.

A well worn fictional trope is hardly fresh.

Video games have always enjoyed a close association with the military.

They have? Gee I didn't know the military was responsible for all my favourite CRPGs, 4X, Adventure, etc. games.

After his appearance on the panel in Washington, the ex-game developer was offered an unpaid fellowship by Grundmen on the Atlantic Council, a nonpartisan Washington-based think tank that advises on the future of unknown conflict. “My job is to advise outside-the-box thinking on the nature of future threats, and propose proactive solutions to mitigate against them,” he says. In late September, Anthony delivered one such suggestion during an Atlantic Council forum. His controversial proposition was the introduction of school marshals, “U.S. soldiers who are in plainclothes, whose job is to protect schools.”

It’s a familiar argument – guarding schools from terror threats and, of course, shooting massacres, through the provision of weaponsised staff. What made Anthony’s suggestion unique was his follow-up idea of how to deal with the inevitable public outcry that would greet such a policy: video game-style marketing. “When we have a new product that has elements that we’re not sure how people will respond to, what do we do as a corporation?” he asked. “We market it as much as we can — we do all the things we can to essentially brainwash people into liking it before it actually comes out. I’d like to see the government doing this too.”

Wow. Just fucking wow. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Assholes like this Anthony prick want perpetual warfare. They get hard thinking about the terrorists they get to kill when they're the fuckers creating them to begin with. Hell, why waste all the time and money and needless suffering to begin with? Just nuke the Middle-East and be done with it. Once the oil is gone that's what they'll do anyway.
