We need a new TES singleplayer game. Hell Ill even stomach the Gamebyro engine for another outing, just as long as they keep it firmly rooted in singleplayer (with MOD suppord obviously).

/* best George Carlin imitation */

The whole obsession with what the 'gamer', or I should really say consumer, WANTS is beyond fucking ridiculous. Its like Capitalist Business 101. Its also BULLSHIT. Fuck even indies are doing it now, look at StarCitizen. They are making the game that EVERYONE wants apparently. Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.

Whatever happened to developers just making the BEST DAMN GAME they can, and more importantly WANT to make. At that point the publisher steps in and does the marketing according to the game's strengths. Thats how it used to be and thats how its supposed to be. Everything else is just bullshit.

It's the biggest problem with a lot of industries. Why bother creating a better product when all you have to do is convince people the product is better.

I agree but still, with software its kind of different. You really have to try before you buy and you cant really do that can you? Not legally anyway, at least not with most AAA titles out there.

Oh well. At least there is word of mouth and Bluesnews...

Edge of Tomorrow was actually pretty good so its a shame it underperformed at the box office, just reinforces studios attitude of producing more cookie cutter fare. I think part of the downturn is just the natural course of more people staying at home, movies being released to streaming platforms sooner and so many different forms of entertainment vying for attention.

Just read on darkhorizons that Edge passed the $100 Mil. mark today (domestically) and is the highest Cruise earner since 2005. Combine that with the $216 Mil. international gross and its hardly a bomb. I blame crappy marketing for its slow start as well as the plethora of Marvel comic book films all vying for the similar viewer demographics, but all is good.

Have yet to see the film, will probably wait for it to come out on Blueray or something, but have heard only good things about this one.

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

&#8213; R. Buckminster Fuller

Comrade, I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, its utopian to the extreme.

I dont get what all the fucking fuss is about. This is just free publicity for all involved. I bet that just because of this little stunt these "stars" are at least 5-10% more expensive to hire. I have yet to hear about a celebrity whose career got anything but a boost by something like this.

P.S.

Everyone is responsible for their own digital footprint. Also, fuck Apple.

If they are making it into a WoT style grindfest Im not interested. If on the other hand the grind is of the much more reasonable variety (ala MW:O) and there is no obvious P2W, then this might be worth another look.

Its not a bad statement, there is no real reason why anyone should resort to rascist bigotry. Hate speech is a crime where Im from, so why should it go unpunished?

Although considering the fact that most forum admins behave like fascist pigs with delusions of grandeur (thats what you get when you hire people for free) I find the irony very slightly sweet tasting.

Holy fuck shit. Well what this kid did deserves every punishment, but are you fucking serious? So anyone can call the police, make shit up like and I quote "I just shot and killed 4 people and Im gonna kill any police to come in here" their first response is to send in a SWAT team with orders to shoot on sight????!!!

Gotta say the real story is serious police incompetence IMO. Maybe Bats will weigh in on this, but is that standard procedure? No one checks with the neighbours, no one tries looking through the windows? No police cordons outside? No one tries to PHONE the murdering madman 'allegedly' in the house????

Also that Patriot Act provision basically ignores any special rights that minors have before the law....scary fucking shit.

Well the camp is sort of divided over that but yes a lot of people agree with you and nin. This is however beside the point, the point being that Freelancer turned into the game we all played only after Microsoft stepped in, removed Chris Roberts and then instructed the developers at Digital Anvil to scale the game down and focus on finishing it. Even then it still took them nearly another two or three years to finish the game.

As an on-off virtual simmer, I gotta say this is kind of lame. Sure it looks kind of cool, but all the printed gauges, avionics etc. are just distractions and they limit your FOV if you have any kind of serious big screen or projector which most sim pit enthusiasts use.

Kids always think they can't be tracked.

Until they end up in Federal Pound Me In The Ass Prison.

Ever heard of tor project? Yeah, neither have these kids.

Yes, I have. Ever hear of the FBI? They have surprisingly talented cyber-ops guys who track down Tor users all the time.

Yeah, especially after the perps blab about their acomplishments on their own facebook account. /facepalm

Don't you guys dare talk bad about Chris Roberts. He would never make off with the loot? He has NEVER pumped up the crowds and released vaporware before RIGHT?

Oh wait FreeLancer ....shit he has done EXACTLY that before.

HAHAHA HOOKERS AND YAUGHTS I CALLED IT!!!


Freelancer was a great game, and reviews back that up.

You might want to rethink your strategy...



Sorry nin, I can't agree. Freelancer was 10% of the game it originally claimed to be. Microsoft pumped shitloads of money into that project, only to nearly cancel it. Finally they removed CR as lead on that project, and released an action/arcade game that didnt even support joysticks properly. It was a huge dissapointement after the likes of Starlancer or Freespace2.
