Is there an annoying little anxious thought in your brain that seems to be forming and you cant quite put your finger on what it is? Could it be that something about a 1 Million Dollar Digital Towel stretch goals is rubbing you the wrong way? No?

Oh well, nevermind then. Feel free to keep on throwing insults my way, they really make for a compelling argument in support of StarCitizen's development and the way it's handled.

"Microsoft confirms it's dropping Windows 8.1 support."
I am confused

You should be as that was a terribly written article. Microsoft won't be supporting 8.1 machines that don't have the latest big update. It clearer in the article they are citing. Its kind of like them saying, if you haven't installed service pack 1 you won't be getting any further support. At least that's my interpretation.

Why would anyone choose NOT to install windows update? In any case there seems to be a lot of problems with the update itself as the article clearly indicates.
There is no way you can lay the blame on this on the article writer or the users/customers.

Here is the poll for the $45 million goal, with my commentary in parenthesis, for those too lazy or horrified to click on the link:

A) A New Ship's Gun (New Gun, What New Gun, What about the Old Guns?)
B) Updated Scanner Software (Updated as opposed to what you fuckers??)
C) A new role-specific outfit (Pijamas?)
D) Engine Tuning Kit
E) A Ship Skin (Again, what the fuck, 1 Million Dollar Horse Armor??)
F) A Space Plant (Ok, this sounds cool)
G) Mystery Object (1 Million Dollar Random Encounter??)

Seems odd to have Mantle support for something that dosen't need it.

Have you played RomeII by any chance? If the engine is anything like the one used for RomeII's strategy map then hell yeah they sure as fuck need it...

What. The. Fuck???

How can this NOT backfire? How can this NOT turn out to be Duke Nukem Forever, only with OTHER PEOPLE's MONEY???

Most importantly who are the poor, gullible sobs who keep throwing money at Chris Roberts and Co?? Why not donate to charity?? Its a safer bet...

They didn't have to re-release the classics, you know... If it weren't Gearbox, you'd have a mobile remake instead (these guys were bidding on the IP, also). I doubt they're overly concerned with throwing money at the remastering when they could be putting that into the inevitable sequel.

Hang on a sec are you telling me Gearbox is also working on a sequel to Homerworld 1/2?? Fucking hell, that is not good news...

I know, right? Borderlands series TOTALLY sucked.

How many beloved franchises has Gearbox ruined?? Borderlands is their own IP, and there is always an exception to the rule

... so maybe it's just the age-old tradition of being a shitty port.

Yeah somehow this what Im leaning towards in my thinking too....

This looks like an interesting game, but Im going to wait and see how it turns out, if it ends up like the GTAIV port then its best avoided like plague...

I havent been following the development of this game so please excuse my ignorant question. Is this a cross-platform game or is it a PC game?

The government is the industry's (OIL, Weapons, Finance) little bitch. Liberal, Conservative is the kool-aid they use for the little people to take sides and squabble while they steal their rights bit by bit from them right under their noses.

This is not just the US government, but rather most 'democracies' in the world today that have bought into the free market capitalist bullshit...

We are all giving away our sovereignty. Our vote used to mean something, at least it had the power to scare the bejesus out incompetent and corrupt officials. Now it means jack shit. Less than jack shit since it doesnt matter if you vote left or right and even less if you vote for individuals who are sidelined out of mainstream politics for daring to say anything that doesnt conform to the 'allowed' talking points...

Nin you are a coward, you troll every post that insults people, most of which you have on ignore.

JD, underhanded insults are ineffectual and just portrays the poster as insecure and ineffective. You think by making long-stretch analogies you are obscuring and being smart.

I stand by what I said, nothing else to add. You can stand by your statement about the internet:
"either nationalize the internet, or heavily regulate it."
while you compare its "essentially" to water and electricity...

The "people" can continue to think whatever they like about whoever they choose.

Okay, fine. You oppose nationalization, and you oppose regulation. What's your solution to the current problem of monopolistic or duopolistic internet connectivity? Because the current system will leave us stuck at 10mbps for $100/month for decades.

There is no way you can clarify it for Axis. No way at all, trust me on this. People like him vehemently oppose the 'liberal' government, yet they dont realise that this very same so called liberal government has been responsible for most of the deregulation of the marketplace. Something that Axis is supposed to be in favour of. (See Bill Clinton and his reforms)

You are missing the biggest point the article makes, and its a fair one. Developers are marketing 'next-gen' games, yet they are being developed for the Xbox360 and PS3 AS WELL AS for the PS4 and Xbone. This software wont really take advantage of the new consoles.
