count me in with the optimists in blue's camp. in a hundred years i'm hoping we'll have an offworld colony, and possibly a ship on it's way to another star.

A new life awaits you in the Off-world colonies? A chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure?

Yeah, well good luck with that. All you have to do is look at the world today and where we're headed. The future is dystopian and that's very much sooner than later. I suspect that within the next 50 years governments will be reduced to figurehead status and a few megacorps will be in absolute control. Withing the next century, I really believe it'll be a William Gibsonesque world - Syndicate/Bladerunner/et al. Corporations basically run all governments now as it is. The rest is just window dressing to provide people with the illusion of freedom. That's the one line I always loved from Thunderheart....

"We choose the right to be who we are. We know the difference between the reality of freedom and the illusion of freedom. There is a way to live with the earth and a way not to live with the earth. We choose the way of earth. It's about power, Ray." - Jimmy Looks Twice

DayZ is the current meme, like Minecraft was. It's the in thing to buy atm.

I don't think you understand what a meme is. Minecraft is still super popular, btw. Nothing past tense about it. They've sold about 54 million copies thus far and are still going strong. If Minecraft were available on Steam, it would probably be the top seller.

Sigh, why am I the only person around here who understands sociological concepts like what a meme is?

A meme (/&#712;mi&#720;m/ meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.[3]

Does that help clarify it for you? Allow me to simplify. Little Johnny here's of a 'kewl' product or service that's getting popular. And like most of societies mouth breathers Little Johnny lacks the self-esteem to buck trends. So rather than risk social isolation he jumps on the bandwagon. Now Little Johnny is part of the "in-crowd", and his other little pea-brain pals have to join in or they risk being ostracized as well. See how that works?

What a shit show. This sort of shit is precisely why I'm done with KS. KS doesn't care and won't take any responsibility because they want their cut. They're like pimps and no one should support pimps.

You could just avoid shady Kickstarters and support the ones worth supporting. For every Areal, there's ten Kickstarters that turn out well.

True enough. I should say I won't be bothering with games Kickstarters anymore. Most seem to be either scams or from people that can afford to bankroll them themselves but don't want to risk their own money. There are people doing other things that are definitely worthy of backing. Here's one...

Mankind has no long term future. We're doomed sooner rather than later. We're simply too stupid, greedy and atavistic to make it in the long run. Even the dinosaurs will have had a better run at it. Even if we managed to colonize other planets we'd just be exporting the same problems and issues as we have now. When you live on a planet where people allow all the sociopaths to run most of it there isn't much hope things will ever get better.

Scam. He's lying. Who the hell just gives someone 35 grand without any sort of specific contract?

And Yogcast very much has a legal obligation. If I were a backer I'd be filing complaints with the FBI for interstate wire fraud and the FTC for bait and switch. This is very obviously a con.

A) Snowden doesn't have those sorts of political connections to warrant a PP. Guys like Nixon, Ollie North, etc. are the pricks that get off. You know, the real criminals.

Yeah, the arcade aspect of it is disappointing , but the game world itself looks pretty sweet. I'd love to replicate The Gumball Rally in this with the classic cars.

All the time. For physical and ebooks. I love libraries. Bookstores too. I can spend hours in them perusing.

Is this just Port Royale 3/Patrician III hybrid?

I like these games, but once you figure out the game mechanics the fun is pretty much over.

Apparently, everyone I see comments to just stick with Port Royale 3 gold. I haven't played it so I'll grab it at some point and see how different it is.

I've always only played MMOs until I've done all the content then I'm gone. I'll come back and check out the new stuff when it arrives but paying to grind isn't for me. Every MMO should be smart and do like NWO. As much as NWO is fucked because Perfect World - talk about a misnomer - the Foundry is still an amazing tool. That's how you keep subscribers around.

Meh bleh. Love the period. Love the concept. But the base game is just oversimplified, and the AI and/or scripting for the game is bad. I've seen some reviews that the expansion helps flesh out the game but I haven't grabbed it. Has anyone else?

I've always been of the mind that, I don't know if it's art, but I know what I like. I'd still like to do an art history degree one of these years, just for its own sake. I do so love the Renaissance and Baroque periods for art.
