Do I really need to spell out that I'm not talking about a handful of rabid space game fanboys who'll give their eye teeth for a space game, but the vast majority of "normal" people. I don't know if you guys are multi-millionaires or live at home with your parents but for most of us with real life commitments and debts, then yes $150+ for a game is completely fucking absurd. As was discussed last night, even $60 is considered too much by most these days. Most people aren't even looking at games until they're hitting $30 and under.

Im having very large financial problems at the moment, as my company is in the process of a merger, my salary has gone down the tubes, and its a fucking mess. I will not be going into this beta, Id like to, but I simply cant afford it. With that said I have absolutely no problem with them asking that much because I know that the game will be much, much cheaper at launch. They are also not bullshitting people with empty promises and they are hitting their deadlines. To me that is a big, fucking huge positive plus and to me that kind of commitment merits a reward.

Bryan Cranston Says Breaking Bad Isn't Necessarily Over

It was great but I don't want to see revisits or prequels that involve Walt/Jesse. The side characters, fine whatever that's harmless. Don't mess with 5 seasons of awesomeness though.

Every time I see this title now I get that stupid song in my head, The girl is so dangerous....

Anyway, $150? Yeah. Keep smokin that rock.

Considering how much people have put into Starcitizen, what with all the P2W ships, the toilet towels, and the rest of that bullshit etc. Id say 150 bucks for the full game + all the dlc, expansions etc. is not really that much. Especially as its not really for everyone, just the fans and people who want to support the development of the game. The game will probably be 50$ at release is that more acceptable for you Cutter?

So expensive toys for rich boys. I guess now we know what Balmer always wanted to be when he was a kid. Still that price tag is kind of inflated? Strange that a businessman wouldnt figure out that he got ripped off bigtime, maybe he thought that he was getting the LA Lakers...

Just using any excuse to show off my favorite Sim:

F86 Sabre wicked!

The Sabre is coming to DCS in July, the short clip was taken from the new rendering engine EDGE which is not yet in the game, but is in internal beta testing. There are no post-processing visual effects in the video!! In case anyone is wondering, the Sabre's adversary the Mig-15 is also in production.

The truth is that you cant prevent terrorist acts. You cant have a war on terror. It doesnt work that way. Terrorists thrive in this kind of environment, it fosters and nurtures them. Its a circle-jerk of epic fucking proportions. The only way that you can reasonably reduce terror attacks from foreign actors is to get the fuck out of their backyard and STAY out. This is unfortunately exactly what a superpower devoid of any real enemies fears. The war on terror is a perfect excuse to expand governmental powers, expand foreign reach and keep the military constantly engaged in proxy wars. Its perfect actually. Compared to a real shooting war against a large and well prepared military force its relatively low risk (asymetrical warfare), it plays well domestically (looking at you Darks) and it it can be kept on indefinitely (the Eternal War on Terror). What you have today is exactly what Eisenhower warned against in his farewell address, the military-industrial complex is larger and more powerful than ever before and the constitutional checks that keep it in place are being eroded faster than ever before. The NSA and FISA courts ignoring or bypassing the constituion is not an insignificant part of that.

101. Re: and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? May 30, 2014, 03:33 InBlack
 
101st! Ha!

Regarding DCS: World. It truly is the best, complete combat sim experience today. Ive been a regular on-off player ever since the Blackshark days. Best part is that they keep adding to the existing modules all the time. For example recently the F15C got a new flight model, which at this point is probably the best, or rather the most complete in the game.

Here is another simple example of how awesome the sim is. Yesterday I was messing around in the quickfly mission with the Mustang p51 and configuring my face tracking software, basically its a one on one vs an enemy FW190D AI plane. So we are getting it on going in to rolling scissors and somehow he gets stuck on my six and I cant shake him off. So I dive to the deck and do a really hard pullup and left turn at the last minute. Suddenly I cant see him, he is nowhere, I do a few turns eyballing high and low and cant find him anywhere. Figuring its a glitch or bug, I land on a nearby field and save the .trk file (replay) to see what happened. Anyway to cut it short, apparently as I was doing my last manouver the FW190 lost control and stalled, then promptly crashed as he was too low to recover. Awesome sauce!

I think the show is sometimes better than the source material to be honest. Don't worry about reading past the show, the show is moving much faster than GRRM anyway so by the time you're done ADWD the show will likely be wrapping up

Sacrilege!!! Though shall not speak such heresy here again or though shall forever be condemned to the fiery pits of the Devil

The guy is a low life piece of shit traitor, plain and simple. Anyone who runs off giving our secrets to our enemies is a traitor. Hes placed peoples lives who are under cover at risk.

So a government spying on its own citizens is ok, with you? Thats not, whats the word Im looking for...oh, in the least bit treasonous to you?

Spectral, does the game feature Newtonian motion? Or to put it more simply can i get manual thruster control? I.E. Can I fire main engines to set me goin in one direction, and then change my attitude so that I face in a different direction (while continuing my motion in the first direction) to do strafing runs or the like? (Think battlestar galactica)
Yes, many people have the "flight assist" mapped to one of their mouse button and they toggle on and off to make quick turns.
Here is a video demonstrating it: http://youtu.be/1KAJuR5giGo

Awesome!! You have just made my day In the end I will definitely be getting both BOS and Elite, but I think Im going to wait for Elite to go gold so I can experience the joy of playing it for the first time with all the goodies and everything!

Please let me now how you like it. I'm a penny pincher, I won't be able to join you before the release of the final version, WHICH MIGHT COME OUT BEFORE Star Kitten DF Module!
I love it so far but only have access to the old Alpha 1.1 build
Made a few videos of some beginner dog fighting, as I am practicing with my joystick and TrackIR.
It's been 10+ years since I've used a joystick for any game

Here are my vids:

No wonder they are giving aways BF3 for free. Its a nice way to get people to sign up for Origins where EA can spamfest them with their shitty marketing for their upcoming Battlefield game, year in, year out.
Fuck that.

If you want the premium beta which starts tomorrow it is $150 but it also includes all the DLC packs that will be released for the game.
The regular beta is $80 I believe, but no release date announced for that yet.

Ouch...expensive. Im on the fence between this and IL2:BOS. IL2 has more polish and is feature locked, its also cheaper so Ill probably go in that direction....Decisions, decisions....argh...

Blue, its no biggie. As someone who has read all five books (twice) I have to say Im still enjoying the show. Actually enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. Also of note the fourth season is all over the place as far as timelines are concerned, which is understandable given the format, I would suggest that you really read past the show and only watch the rest of the show once you have completed all five books.

I've just sent this news to Blue!

They should just keep quiet until they are ready to release it.
In other news Elite beta is out tomorrow, and my X-55 RHINO is being delivered today! It's going to be a good weekend!

How much $$$ to get in the beta? Im seriously considering it...

In before VReagle!

Surprise....surprise...

Im not gloating. I have mixed feeling about this project. On the one hand its everything I have ever wanted in a game. On the other its like the only ideas that seem to get traction are the ones that can get monetized, BEFORE the game is anywhere near a playable stage....So more or less hype and promises from a man who has promised the moon and then some. Heh, promised the moon, more like the Death Star. And then some.

In the end I feel this will end in dissapointment for everyone involved, most notably the backers who have invested a lot of their personal money for this to get made.

Aside from the absurdity of the premise of this game, steampunk is the worst fucking setting ever. Its like a mixture of fantasy and regency romance novels. Its a goddamn shame that steampunk is even a thing. Even worse is Sci-fi steampunk. Worldbuilding just for appearance is lazy and stupid.

I realize that this is a place to share opinions but can you work on curbing your stupidity a bit?

Ad-hominem classic! Great rebuttal man. I didnt even argue a point, but merely expressed an opinion. So who is The Stupid here?
