I honestly forget which one I used, and I uninstalled Diplomacy to make room for Rebellion so I don't have it anymore. If I recall it made all fighters auto-dock when no enemies were in the gravity well so the system isn't constantly processing those. It also reduced the mine limit and made each one stronger to compensate, again to track less objects. I think those two were pretty big FPS killers when the quantities are high end-game.
If you happen to remember which it was, post it I'd be interested. I haven't had time to play, but always nice to know what mods to look at for the future.

But is GW2 truly F2P?
That's the hook. It's actually pay to win.

People like dungeon crawling(ie sewer crawling). Which FO3 had a lot of, NV didn't have much of that. I admit I liked that too, but there wasn't a lot of it in NV. Though as Chris Avellone said on the topic, there's alot of places in the US southwest for the next installment, and even more that people haven't considered. I'd really love to see them do something in the Boneyard(LA), or heck even New Reno. Or both, there's really no shortage of material.

Im the opposite, I enjoyed Bethesda's Fallout 3 a lot more then Obsidian's Fallout NV.

Therefore im excited Bethesda is currently working on Fallout 4 and not Obsidian.
Blasphemy. Let me guess, you enjoyed the TV miniseries of Dune over the actual books too?

I couldn't have said it better, regarding all the above thoughts. I did get to act II inferno, but quickly reverted to act I farming.
Easier to make money there anyway. Easier to get drops there with a high %MF, and it'll be even easier once they put MF back on chests.

I dunno, it seems to me that it might be a better idea to simply say "screw consoles" and release games directly on oh...steam.

Don't worry Blue. The forecast for across the lakes and across from you is to be back up into the high 80's and low 90's by late saturday, or early sunday. So I'm sure you'll be getting it soon enough. The humidex around here is supposed to push it back into the mid 90's to the low 100's too.

Meh, cry me a river. That's everyday between June 1st and October 1st here in the midsouth.

The the midsouth might get that from June 1st to September. But the last time I looked from November to March they didn't get 24-80" snowfalls and assnumbingly(-25 to -30F) cold weather either. Though sometimes, if you're lucky, you do get freezing rain. But we get the snow, then freezing rain. Or sometimes the other way around, or sometimes we get the rain,then snow, then freezing rain, or a combination of any of those in any order. Making sure that chaos is beheld by all!

You're also welcome to trade that any time you want. We also get "wet winters" unlike those guys out in the US plains. Which means that cold, yeah. The cold chills you to the core, and bites at your soul.

Today is the first time in nearly a month where the temperature is under 80. I know where you're coming from Blue, a nice toasty 75F with rain here. Yesterday was 96F with the humidex in the 119F range.

When you're looking for work as a game dev, the metacritic score of the titles you've worked on effects how HR recruiters view your CV.

Yeah that's half the problem. Especially when publishers can taint it, users can bomb it. Absofuckinguseless.

Yeah I'm getting a forced upgrade for my work machine. Oh yeah. So now I get to do double duty on a win7 and win8 machine. If I come here and am twice as insane, you now know the reason.

Christian countries are white countries and white people are less likely to commit serious crimes than non-whites. This has less to do with religion and more to do with racial differences.
Ahaha yeah. I think it's about time for you to travel outside of that 60 mile limit of your house, and go travel the world a bit. There are plenty of countries that some form of christianity as the actual state religion(roman catholic for example, and a few that are protestant), that are actually non-white. I'll just point that out.

fear has always been used to control the population... see: christianity
Funny you say that. In other news, in socities which have a strong belief in "hell" like "christianity" there is a lower crime rate. Well now, isn't that a problem, or is it? The actual study in itself is very interesting if you're into psychology at all, though it's behind a paywall which is why I'm not linking it.

Now, I can keep going if I really wanted but which way. Should we go the Muslim, or the Jewish path? Shinto, or Hindu? Choices, choices. Though the muslim one is reallllly fun with their crime stats. Especially once you get into the number of sexual assaults in muslim countries, and you correct them to western values.

In the undergrad criminology course I took, the one part covering theft prevention they liked to call this the "Make me feel like a criminal effect." If you make people feel like a criminal, they're more likely to react that: If they're being labeled as such, they're going to react as such no matter what. People don't like being applied with this label, and it shows that businesses who do such are out of touch with their customers.

How the hell this ever passes into reality, when people tell them "this isn't a good idea" I have no freaking clue.

Nothing. It wasn't a bad technology 130 years ago when people were messing around with it in b/w photographs except as an oooh-ahahhh wowoer. But it's also easy to give you eyestrain, headaches, nausea, and all the rest. But most people still haven't even jumped onto the "HD" bandwagon.

Considering how cheap a good laser printer will cost these days, you might want to consider grabbing one of those the next time you need a replacement. Especially with the cost of toner cartridges. I picked up a Samsung CLP-320 for $120 last year and I'm still on the starter toner kit, and I've already printed double what the starter kit listed for the number of pages would print. They listed 2000 b/w and 400-500 colour. I've gotten ~4800b/w and around 650 colour so far.

And considering the toner cartridge is around the same price each for a single colour pack these days, I still end up coming ahead when I did the math.
