Am I the only one kind of underwhelmed with GTA5? I mean it's an improvement over 4, for sure, but I've put significantly less hours into it than I did with SR4.

In addition to the obvious hilarity of "real science!" and having Earth collide with Mars (I should simulate that in Universe Sandbox, and see how fucking difficult it is to actually make it happen. I'm guessing it's odds of 10^-30 power or something,) this bit:

veterans of development of World of Warcraft, Command & Conquer, and Lost Planet 3

really make me sigh. Veterans of everything except 4X games! We'll make a great 4X game, trust us!

Sure, fellas. Good luck.

To be fair most people on the Internet are veterans of McDonalds, Burger King, and Hot Topic and think they'd make the best everything ever if given the money and power to do so.

Launch and near-launch lineup for new consoles was already weak. This isn't helping push consoles.

I'd say piracy is pretty far down the list, since most people here don't pirate. Your comment might provide insight into your mindset though.

Oh really? Most people here don't pirate? Please. On Blue's, most of us were probably copying that floppy when copying that floppy was still a thing.

I have to wonder why she was fired. Especially how close between the fire date and Valve announcing Steam Box.

Given that the Steam Box is more or less going to be up to manufacturers to design and release with the Steam Box label, my initial guess is that they switched from a first-party solution. You wouldn't need as much engineering talent if that were the case.

Why are we arguing about piracy? I mean jesus christ piracy is the #1 selling point of PC gaming, whether it be emulation or native titles, and it always has been. No one cares.

Quite frankly companies can't even be bothered to put reasonable effort into their Windows ports. What's going to convince them to put port to a SECOND PC operating system?

He might want to check with his record label before sending off letters. It's probable Rockstar already paid them.

Gonna wait until I've heard more on this one. The troubled development cycle bothers me because usually games with those kinds of shake ups turn out a bit schizophrenic.

Every day hundreds are signing up... it has been a slow uptick of the # of people signing up every day. It is not just the USA but all over the world.

I just don't believe that 2000 people are signing up every day for $77 a piece, and keep on doing this so day after day after week after week after month after month. Not when no other Kickstarter has gotten even anywhere near those numbers of people. Yet Roberts keeps adding a million dollars basically every week?

I'm pretty sure this is just investor money that they're pretending is crowdsourced.

I'm a Star Citizen backer, but I share your suspicions. I'm sorry, but crowd sourced titles like this follow a pretty consistent pattern with how the money comes in. You don't keep up steady and consistent gains over a long period of time.

If I had to guess, I'd say a certain amount of investor money was gained early on, and he's pretending that its rolling in slowly to keep the game in the press. Admittedly a bit of a tinfoil hat theory, but something is definitely fishy here.

I've been using Windows 8 for a long time now and I don't really have any complaints. I stopped using the start menu in my workflow years ago, so maybe I'm not the ideal person to be judging, though.

But Windows 8 has so many cool little tweaks all over the place and internal improvements, I couldn't really go back to 7.

Been pondering putting up a Terraria dedicated server. But the problem with terraria is that you have to farm worlds, which means multiple servers or restarting it etc.

I think many of you are forgetting this is just a prototype.

We're conducting a beta of the overall Steam living-room experience, so we needed to build prototype hardware on which to run tests.

I'm not sure how anyone can be forgetting it, but since their Linux has superior performance than a windows pc, why not a low spec'd PC to test with and impress?

Because no OS/driver combination is going to turn a low end PC into a mid-range PC performance-wise. Sending out prototypes for testing that can't run most games comfortably would be a disaster.

Related note: the voice actor that did Michael was on Boardwalk Empire last week!

I saw Michael on something else last week! I don't recall what it was. But I saw Trevor the night before on Person of Interest.
