"Government had nothing to do with the internet" - Seriously, how dumb are you Republican Fox News-watching hicks? Only you idiots would get something so fundamental so 100% wrong.

NO NO NO! The internet sprang up fully formed from the bosom of the ground. Just like Adam. Get your facts straight man!

Stupid AND Paranoid. A wining combination if there ever was one...

People don't get that this is a WIN for them. They don't seem to get that these rules are there for their own benefit and protection. I really don't get how these mega corporations who are all PRIVATELY owned have political supporters among people who have nothing at all to do with them. It baffles the mind....

I'll say this - I really don't want the government in my internet, any more than I wanted the government in my healthcare. That said, the absolutely corrupt and utterly unethical corporations left the government no choice in either case, so I will settle for the lesser of two evils. Corporations in both cases simply would not do the right thing, so they must be made to do the right thing. Don't blame the government for instituting what will turn out to be far from perfect regulations on both the internet and healthcare; rather, blame the corporations for leaving the government no choice by not doing what's right on their own. The money-obsessed douchebags in charge would sell their own mothers for a dime; of course they could not be left to run slipshod over the populace in their blind greed.

Well said.

The last people I want behind the internet is the god damn FFC and government. Now we can expect taxes, regulations, censorship and everything else horrible associated with the government.

Call me cynical, but I don't see anything good from this.

I'll call you troll. Well played sir!

Hopefully a 65 gig preload.

It was a gutsy move, and I applaud it, we are talking about a horror movie after all. "Feel good" hollywood subplots have no business being in a good horror film anyway. (Or in anything else for that matter)

Just to clarify, I don't think that the Newt subplot was weak in Aliens. It wasn't, it was an essential part of the film. However in Alien3, killing off both Newt and Hicks, also served the plot of the film greatly. First of all it was unexpected, and secondly it once again cast Ripley as an outsider even more isolated and vulnerable than before.

Funny, that's why I bought a PC.

Maybe he already has a PC, ever think of that?

Maybe Blue has a sense of humour, ever think of that?

Man that would be cool. Wait. Hey! I actually liked Alien3. I guess I am alone on this planet in thinking it was a great film that put one of my favorite directors on the map.

Maybe I am missing it... How is pre ordering GTA 5 going to hurt PC development, or Rockstars view/treatment of PC? Would like it explained I think I am missing it.

It's not just about GTA, it applies to any AAA game. Basically you are agreeing to buy a cat-in-the-bag type of product. A large number of preorders basically tells the honcho guys at rockstar that they can get away with doing a shitty port. The money is already in the bag, as people like to say. What adds insult to injury is the fact that GTAIV was an abysmal port, so it's not like there isn't a precedent here.

Anways, it really comes down to one thing. What have you got to lose to wait until release day at least? The answer is nothing, in most cases. With a preorder you can never be really sure.

With GTAV we already know what the gameplay will be like, the question is only how well it is ported. With most games you don't even get that, it's down to either gettin on the hype train or staying off it.

Im probably going to pick this up. I loved the original game, even though it was hard as fuck. I didnt really like the second game as much as it had a weaker story, but I do remember roflstomping with battlecruisers in the later parts of the sequel. I dont think the original game had them, those units were fucking broken.

That sounds like a wonderful excuse for each vendor to blame the other for performance issues...


Was just about to write something very similar. Sounds like a wonderful way to break or severly slow down your system. This part is relevant though:

There is a catch, however. Lots of the optimization work for the spreading of workloads is left to the developers the game studios

I predict that lazy developers will continue to be lazy. Amen.

There is no rational reason to preorder a game, like ever. It's not rational. I will admit that Ive done it on ocasion, but it was never a rational choice.

When I get home I'll take a pic. It isn't like I can prove it's been on for that long to anyone but my family and perhaps some friends I've shown. I could put it on a 24/7 cam and stream it and then watch the next 5 years as no one tampers with it.

But at least you'll see the miraculous everlasting light, divine it is. I'm a believer!

It will probably go out as soon as you set that shit up. Murphy and all...

Their mistake with the first version was they went for a 1:1 tabletop to PC game translation. It was very well made, but it lost a lot of the intensity of the boardgame when you have two people physically playing it. Each level was entirely visible (like the boardgame) which killed most of the suspense, plus it was dictated by RNG which was frustrating in the game, but a key part of the boardgame.

With Ascension, they've re-made the game but solely aimed at PC gamers - well gamers. Things like RNG has been replaced by percentages, and abilities such as using control points to clear weapon jams, and more control of weapon heat. It doesn't sound like much but it makes an incredible difference.

They also added a basic RPG system to it, where surviving Terminators gain XP and can level up their invididual skills - so you can more easily specialise.

But the best change IMO was the Space Hulks are now dark. Dark and only illuminated by what your Terminator's display with their armour's lighting sources - slightly increased again when they go into Overwatch. You cant even tell where branches in tunnels are, or doors, or even ventilation tunnels between them until you physically explore them. What this means is - your enemies can come from anywhere. YOu need to creep forward, cover all approaches - it's bloody good.

I bought the first one and dont feel bitter about it because it was a good game, just flawed due to the 1:1 boardgame to pc game translation. Ascension is what the first one should have been.

With these chapter packs, they're exploring more complexity to the missions, adding further obstacles and random elements, which is just what this game needs. This Salamander pack looks great.

It's an easy game to reccomend to any fellow 40k fans - or anyone who likes a turn based strategy that can be really quite difficult.

Purge in his name!

Sold! Got the first one and was kinda dissapointed with it. Thought Ascension was more of the same, looks like they addressed a lot of the problems that are inherent in a board game TC, so yeah. Sold!

The Lego Movie was a disjointed affair redeemed by a catchy song and a few jokes, it obviously went through several ending revisions before they finally settled on the weirdest one possible. Fun movie but not something I would give awards to.

You obviously didn't get the subtle subversive undertones in the film. It's a brilliantly subversive film that makes fun of our consumer society in the best way possible. Humour.

President Business FTW!

It's amusing that you think the movie is somehow deep enough for people not to grasp.

Oh...I see. So you got the message but you what? Hate humanity? Felt the urge for an ad-hominem attack?

Any FPS game could be converted, all you need is another independent "look" finction seperate from the mouse. Then mod the UI so it re-arranges itself out of the corners, so it can be seen while wearing a headset. that's it. it could be hard as fuck, it could be impossible, or it could be entirely plausible if there was a company that took the lead to corral everyone using the "right" standards such as a universal FOV/sensitivity: It should mimic head movements 1:1 as default, so that all muscle movements A) feel natural, immersive and demonstrate presence. and B) your skills will transfer from title to title as all movements will be the same.


AFIK Valve is already working with Oculus on an SDK for the Rift and (I assume) other VR devices. Im not sure what you are talking about, the decision to support the device is up to each game developer. You can't reverse engineer support for old games without the source code for each game.
