Actually a tablet is ideal to play turn based strategy games. There are at least two games I would like to own an IPAD for. XCOM and Hearthstone. Sadly just those two games (one of which I have finished) are hardly justfication enough to buy such an expensive toy.

Im going to be checking this out. XCOM was great and all, but a lot of the things that made the original great were sorely missing...

Sounds like an interesting concept. The first time Ive seen one from Crytek! This part bothers me though, games-as-a-service. Sounds like a nice way of saying they are trying out new ways of price gouging their customers...as if 5 hour campaigns for 60$ games wasnt humiliating enough....

It's only humiliating if we actually buy 5 hour campaigns for $60. Being burned so many times in the past has turned me into a very skeptical gamer.

Actually humiliating for Crytek, thats what I meant. But yeah, your interpretation works too

As epic as the fight was, what came before the fight was even better. In fact this is definitely one of my favorite episodes so far, with some of the best scenes and performances of all involved...
*semi spoiler below*
I couldnt help but feel sorry for Ser Jorah, a decent guy who has made some questionable decisions in his life and unlike most everyone else in the series always ends up paying for them bigtime...

If I wanted to play an MMO with a subscription fee today, I would probably go back to Age of Conan. I dont think any other MMORPG comes close at this point. (At this point, not at launch)

It's funny because the director will always say "Shake" when they have to film one of those scenes. It is pure hilarity to see all of them looking so seriously and then do a little shimmy. (bonus fun when one actor forgets they are supposed to shimmy to the right first, and goes against everyone else.)

It also doesn't even make sense within their own technology. Why isn't the inertial dampener countering that inertia as well? I can see it not engaging under a certain threshold, otherwise they couldn't even move around, but when a crew member is flung across the deck, the inertial dampener should simply prevent that from happening.

Momentary failure? In any case the effect can still end up looking pretty good, even though its the lamest thing ever.

Shit. Is it wrong that I like Sting? Then again I happen to be a musician...

Nice. Whats the deal with tick borne diseases in the US? Over here in Europe ticks have been known to carry some nasty shit.

Lyme disease is the number one culprit, but there are others. Our god-daughter got really sick a couple of weeks ago from a tick-borne disease that's apparently just surfaced.

Sorry to hear. Shit, thats bad luck, I hope its not too bad. My mother is a very outdorsy person, who spends just about every single day outdoors usually on the hunt for mushrooms of all sorts. Obviously ticks are a big problem, but she has been lucky so far...

Why not the Chinese? Or Aliens? Or Iraq? Or the British?

Any of these are more plausible than North Korea. Bah, what the hell am I getting riled up about, the original Homefront was a piece of shit anyway and this will be no different.

That F-35 article is wrong. It didnt cost 250 Billion to put a man on the moon, it cost about 20 Billion for the entire program. Even adjusted for inflation and whatnot, it would be below that number.

Neuroscience is so young that I do not think it is possible to say whether the whole neuroscientific community as a whole has come to the conclusion that free will doesn't exist.

Agreed. Which is why i used the word probably. Also depends on how you define the term.

Harlock, as always its a joy to read your more philosophical posts. Id like to add one other thing, youve touched on it but it may have been lost on most of the people here. Apart from very few researchers who work in the field, humanity has yet to deal with the little known fact that many of our impulses or indeed motivations stem from programming that is inherent in our genes and upbringing. According to some of the newest neurological papers, free will, as we know it is very deceptive and most probably untrue. If you havent read "Neuropath" by Bakker yet, do so immediately.
