Do you work for free? Why should anyone else?

Lots of people do. It's called volunteering. And if you take money for something promised you're legally bound to deliver that or it's fraud. If you pay me for an order of widgets and I deliver you a box of them only half done you're going to want what you paid for or your money back, right? This is no different. I have to carry liability insurance for the stuff I make, and so should they. Personally I think government watch dogs need to start regulating this stuff seeing as Steam and others aren't - when they should be seeing as they're profiting from it.

So it's been in EA for 2 years and it's still alpha. Stick a fork in it, this thing is over. Chalk it up to another object lesson for consumers.

Enh, Environment Canada and The Weather Network both said yesterday we can expect this winter shit to continue into mid-march most likely. So no early parole. Still, it was a mild and snow free Dec/Jan for us so I can't complain all that much compared to last year. Yet, it still makes Feb the worst month of the year IMO.

If it flops he'll care. Feature creep is generally a bad thing. You have to learn to define the core and focus on getting that done on time and on budget.

Yeah its stupid to trust in a company that is crowd funded and gives regular development updates with modules you can try for yourself! I like the old EA approach of showing cut scenes that have nothing to do with game play in fancy 150$ collector edition boxes. Companies that don't put out demo's of their product before a game is released etc etc. Talk about sheep.

There's a demo of the game? How odd! I've only heard there's a hangar module and little space arena to fly around in. I didn't realize the game was finished and there was a demo for it. Direct us to it will you.

Wry

You can't have a demo of a game when the game isn't done my god man. You can have demo's of parts of the game that are ready. For example space combat, and soon the FPS part of the game. Like I said this game shows more of the true game to people that are interested than most games published by companies like EA. But its cool Cutter, your probably some EA tool that wants to keep the money coming to the publisher instead of the game creators.

Lol, keep rationalizing away fanboy. Oh man, you and your ilk are just sad. Laughable too. Heh.

The game is very good and the review is very accurate, though never played the demo.

I tried the demo for Dead State was horrible. Now have zero interest in the game even if it was $5. And the fact that the devs are douchebags does nothing to help their cause.
Ooc, why do you think Brian & Brenda Mitsoda and DB team are douchebags?


Didn't you hear the story of them censoring posts on Steam and then got into a war with people who had negative opinions of the game calling them dicks, etc. Most unprofessional thing I've ever seen. A few sites out there have the whole story if you want to find it.

I just watched the Red Dwarf episode the other day. I should make one of those.

Lol that was a good catch. Can not wait for GTA5 to get here! Hurry!

And that was a good response on that archery video - and she's pretty hot. I'd rather watch her shoot than Hawkeye or Green Arrow.

And how is using a tool like that cutting glass by hand? Fail.

And that was a pretty ingenious solution to having no reverse, but you really should have it. I'd never have MacGyver'd my way out of that ditch yesterday without it!

"The USA is very proud of its Constitution, and it's probably true that the people who wrote the constitution were risking their lives - as were the people who fought for it. They must all have expected great things to flow from, and be protected by, their constitution.

That's complete nonsense. You obviously don't understand what's entailed in being a sommelier. For your staging you have to do a blind stage of 12 different wines. Not only do you need to be able to identify the wine, but its composition, and region where it's from. To be a master sommelier is even more difficult. Since the accreditation in 1969 there's only been 220 or so people in the world who've been able to pass the exam. You're using one poorly written article in the Guardian as "study after study"? And they can't even cite one single sommelier? Yeah, ok.
Rolleyes

Regardless of what kind of training people must get to assess wines, the results are poor, resulting in vast inconsistencies, and even inabilities to recognize good wines or even types of wines in blind tests. The article linked to many studies, but since you were too lazy to read it and click on the links, I'll list them below.
Regarding judges (most are wildly inconsistent):
An Examination of Judge Reliability at a major U.S. Wine Competition
How Expert are “Expert” Wine Judges?
The Color of Odors
Regarding the general population (suggestions and recs from experts are lost on them):
DO MORE EXPENSIVE WINES TASTE BETTER? EVIDENCE FROM A LARGE SAMPLE OF BLIND TASTINGS
Expensive wine and cheap plonk taste the same to most people

The bottom line is that wine tasting and wine ratings are by and large run by incompetents (and possibly a scam), and perpetuated by vineyards that want to sell $1 worth of fermented grape juice for $100 per bottle. And then those recs don't even translate to enjoyment for the average person. It's willful avoidance of the issue by people such as yourself that would prefer to live in your wine fantasy land instead of educate yourselves in the way science has pointed.

And yes, median is the correct terminology in this case as it applies to half the population, but 75% when averaging it out instead. Smart people get that.
As I said, in theory averages work like that. In reality, however, intelligence operates on a perfectly symmetrical bell curve. It is therefore impossible for 75% of humanity to be below average, despite your anecdotal experience.

A) That's because they're confusing 'professionals' wine-writers, buyers, negociants, etc. with 'experts' sommeliers. Professional and expert in their respective fields are different things. A professional is one who makes money in field but is not an expert. An expert actually knows what the hell they're talking about.

From the Cambridge study....

"With that criterion, less than 30% of judges who participated in either of the two studies would be considered “expert."

Which fully supports my point.

B) That's not how it perfectly works because nothing works perfectly. It's all just a 'guesstimate' - like a lot of science - that's why I throw in qualifiers like 'about' - or aboot as I'm from Canada - and 'possibly'.

I wish I had a locomotive. I actually got stuck in a ditch earlier but I managed to get out!!! I was in there for about 10 minutes before this dude rolls up in a Hummer of all things. I had a tow rope - as I always have an emergency kit in the car - but he didn't have a hitch. Anyway super cool guys. We spend another 10 minutes throwing salt from my kit and some pine boughs down to make a path - because it was too deep into push me out - and we made a little runway so I just rocketed out with the forward momentum. I got out of the car and we high-fived! He was laughing his ass off and said he was amazed I got out. Called me a "true Canadian boy".

What I find surprising is that there are still quite a few people who don't "related" Republicans to Democrats, since they are basically all the same. Coke and Pepsi. They may smell a little different, but they're both bad for you.

Not true at all. They vote quite in opposition to each other most of the time. The Dems are no saints, but they come down on the side of the "people" more often than the Repigs.
