In most Kickstarter/crowdfunding failures there isn't going to be recoverable money.
Exactly. Pay up with what? They failed because they used up all of their funds attempting to deliver the product int he first place.

Im sure that this will be the excuse when Star Citizen goes to hell...

Hell they are already using that excuse to not give refunds. "The money isn't just sitting around."

Anyone else find the attorney general's fee the most egregious? So the attorney general did his job, big deal!

Spending $27,000 in man-hours to attempt to recover $600 in restitution wouldn't really go over too well unless they at least attempted to recover legal fees.

Search thru their SteamOS+Linux listings yourself. It's largely Early Access games, indie games, and a smattering of 2+ year old triple A titles. Most triple A titles on there are over 5 years old from what browsing I did.

It's especially telling to sort by release date, and exclude DLC on the right by only selecting Games. Then see how far back the release date is when you start hitting a decent number of triple A titles.

Look, that game library just isn't going to convert anyone. There's a reason why the only news we get on the Linux gaming front is "number of games on Steam" not "Guess what new triple A title is getting a Linux version!"

It's a deceptive metric if you're using it to compare platforms. Seriously, go look at the games list yourself.

The "study of the study" picked 100 fact checks from over 7000 the source actually checked since 2007.

The source officially condemned this selective misinterpretation of the results.

The link to said misinterpretation is now dead, because, well, it doesn't hold water.

Also, this.

As an immigrant from USSR, I've not seen people more deluded or brainwashed than American liberals - not since being brainwashed myself in Soviet academia into ideologies frighteningly similar to Obama's Statism and cultivation of class wars.

It takes one to know one. The brainwashing will defend itself at all costs - no wonder you people grasp at the flimsiest straws.

The Conservatives in this country would call you a commie piece of fuck and tell you to go home. And you're shocked that people don't want to cast their lot with a bunch of religious zealots and bigots? The religious takeover of the right is very real and will only get worse. The general populous is starting to abandon religion and follow in the steps of many European countries. This means the right will have to double down on their religious rhetoric to rally their base.

Anyone who harasses anyone is a loser, no study needed. They tend to have low self esteem, few real friends, poor work ethics, poor judgement, quick to blame others, generally untrustworthy, dishonest, on and on.

Sound like any particular political party in general? I know, right!

I came here to post the same thing: no study needed to know that.

As for which party is more trustworthy, let's have a look at the numbers:

PolitiFact Says Republicans Lie Three Times More Often Than Democrats

Good to know!

Yeah, when you've gotta sit there and deny reality in order to pander to your base, it really adds up on the ol' lie counter!

Is there a link with the footage? The tweet makes it all in favor of the police. Was the footage from the offices cameras or something else? What is interesting is the office cameras (when they aren't mysteriously off)are proving that the officers story, like a witness isn't very reliable. Think of all of history how many innocents were robbed by police recollection/framing. I hate having a camera everywhere, but there is no going back now, I LOVE that the Authorities as being recorded and seen as in enough cases now, liars where we cannot take their word for it in court.

The video hasn't been made public yet, but some reporters have been shown it.

Here is another article with more details

Eh I dunno how I feel about this.

Schizophrenic with a knife can be unpredictable, and if the article is to be believed, he was within 6 feet of the cops. Close enough to stab someone before you can be put down.

But ultimately we need specialized law enforcement for dealing with suicidal or mentally ill people who are having an episode. If the cops are just going to come out and help the person commit suicide, it's really just a needlessly risky big fucking waste of time, and life.

Here's my full communication with CIG requesting a refund. http://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs

14 days, lol. Fucking retards.

http://reddit.com/r/starcitizen_trades

If you've got some LTI ship packages you can offload them (most likely for a profit) there, either yourself, or using a middleman like that Kane guy who advertises there. (I've used him personally because I didn't have time to bump a thread, etc.)

Do it before the bubble bursts. You can always buy the game later if the game somehow miraculously happens, but you won't be able to sell your ships once it becomes clear that they'll never fucking exist.

Had these kids experienced that kind of display, they'd be more open to the concept of higher framerates = better. I'm looking into upgrading soon to one of the new 48" curved 4k quantum dot displays from Samsung, but I'm a little worried about how jarring the transition will be in going to a 60hz display. I'll probably keep both displays side by side, at least for a while. I think (hope) the improvement in immersion would trump any negative effects felt from going from a fast display to a "slow" one.

It's really a shame that the 144hz LCDs have to be shitty TN panels. I've used one before and it's pretty glorious if you're playing a game you can get up to 144 fps. But the colors suck for watching movies or doing anything else really.

but it's more amusing to me that on the consoles vs the pc there's a way bigger space of what's the ideal.

Well, when people are generally stuck with no choice, they kind of learn to accept it I guess. A lot of PC gamers have rarely had to deal with framerates under 60, if they keep their stuff updated. Meanwhile a lot of console gamers have never played something above 30.

The biggest racist subs are a fraction of the size of even a lot of the smaller game-specific subreddits, to put it in perspective.

The real problem is the subtle insidious racism present in the news sections and other areas of the site. Banning some tiny subreddits won't get rid of that.

I'm not going to pretend I'd lose any sleep over CoonTown or some other shitfuckery getting banned, but I don't particular care one way or the other because I know it wouldn't have any effect beyond placating some short-sighted SJW types who somehow think banning those subs will fix reddit.

Sounds like press release bullshit, no way it was more sales than black friday.

Source for the data you're drawing your conclusion from?


Source for Amazon's data? Oh yeah, Amazon...no reason why they would make this shit up right?

Amazon's numbers are still more convincing than the argument "Everything they say is a lie because CORPORATIONS ARE EVIL AND ONLY TELL LIES." Sorry but if the only thing someone has to say is "I DONT BELIEVE YOU" they might as well not even contribute.

Particularly when they haven't provided examples of Amazon getting caught out with false press releases before.

Amazon's numbers aren't particularly outrageous. They claim 266% increased sales over same day last year, so not even 4 times the sales of a normal day. And only an 18% increase over Black Friday 2014. Black Friday also has a lot of competition from other outlets. They were the only ones running a huge sale that day to my knowledge.

If you actually look at the numbers, they don't strain believability, so there's really no stand-out reason to doubt them. Yes, there is marketing fluff in this PR, but it isn't the numbers. The real PR BS in the release: the idea that beating Black Friday sales is some monumental achievement, it isn't, if you're the only one doing the massive sale.

Fucking idiots who think biological sensors utilize anything close to resembling a "frame rate" do not belong in any kind of discussion whatsoever, related or not. You lack the grey matter to participate.

Precisely. The maximum "frame rate" you can see is not some fixed fucking number. It depends on a huge number of factors and varies wildly from person to person. For example, sit someone in front of a dark screen and flash a white frame at them at 30fps, 60fps, 90fps, 500fps, they are still going to be able to see that frame. Sit them in front of a white screen and flash a black frame at them. They'll probably not be able to discern that one frame as quickly. Rods vs cones, dark vs light, blah blah blah.

It all depends on how you measure it, the rate of change between the frames, the brightness, the colors involved, the responsiveness of that person's particular non-standard slimy biological optical sensor, and so on.

Anyone trying to give you a maximum FPS eyes can see is a fucking retard who is grossly misinformed. Particularly anyone telling you that you can't see the difference between 30, 60, 120 fps, etc. considering it's trivial to slap 30fps gameplay next to 60fps gameplay and see the difference side-by-side.
