News Comments > Double Fine Taking Heat for Spacebase DF-9 Release Plans

Don't know what "10 quid" translates to in yankee dollars but I know I got mine though the Humble Bundle. Definitely got my money worth but I do feel bad for all the Kickstarter people and those who paid regular asking price. I didn't realize they were asking $25. Definitely not worth that.

It was looking pretty good till the last patch when everything went to hell. I guess they ran out of time.

At this point, the main debate seems to be whether the developer is actually dishonest or so mentally defective that he only appears to be dishonest.

Hopefully, he's really sincere about switching engines and holed up somewhere working on it. Seemed like a neat idea.

Don't forget the Stomping Land. Looks like that turned into a grab and run as well.

News Comments > Carmageddon: Reincarnation Early Access Update

Official forums. Asked my question and got blasted with such helpful replies as "OMG u need new compy bro" and "reed teh faq noobe!".

All in all, an awesome experience.

I did submit a bug report and a DXDIAG so maybe it will do some good.

I haven't been able to run it since the May update. Before that the framerate was bad but I could work around that. Now, nothing.

Looked like it was going great back when I could run it though. I keep trying but haven't found a solution yet.

There's no official solution that's worked yet and asking in the forums is a nightmare. The Carmageddon community is not exactly a friendly, supportive environment.

Guess that means they could be run by lizardmen, too.

I will take that bet all day long.

Meant to write something a few days ago but I couldn't find words. I don't know that I can still but I've made up my mind to try.

I've been checking in here first thing for longer than I care to remember. Since early '97 at least. Over the course of that time, my interest in gaming has waned but I still come back here, not so much for the gaming news but because it's a part of my life. Anything I can say has probably already been said and I don't feel like it will help. I'd very much like to say something clever or wise here. To offer to help or to be able to help. I know that a lot of other people feel the same way. In the end all I can do is offer my most sincere condolences.

Sincerely,
Tony Bedsaul and family

News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Space Hulk

Yep. That about sums it up for me too.

Got excited and jumped on this one early. I rarely do that anymore but I thought, "hey, it's space hulk, how bad can they screw it up".

Basically an ipad game scaled up for PC. Hoping for patches but not expecting much. Good game at $5-10 maybe, should have passed at $29 (ouch).

I'll go out on a limb and guess various and sundry forms of assholery.

I'm betting on kinnect control.

I hate game producers. Which only seems fair, since they seem to hate us.

What an utterly useless toy.

And, of course, I must have one immediately...

No prizes for everybody! Fortunately, I have plenty since I acquired an imaginary warehouse filled with unawarded no prizes back in the 80's.

Well, sooner or later there had to be a version of SimCity that I didn't buy. Might as well be this one.

It's like Maxis just gave me an extra $60.

I bought it during the $5 sale too. Tried to play several times but I've never been able to get it actually start.

Allegiance maybe? Excellent game, freely available and still gets quite a bit of play.

That was supposed to be a reply to the Half Elf, not sure what I did there

That is the best news I have had in a long while. How did I manage to miss that? I think it had been so long, I had given up.
