I feel like I'm in the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch, with people going, "No, it makes perfect sense!"

The hard part to understand is THIS part, "To further complicate things, they also note that those who have already preordered the final version or backed the alpha or beta will also receive the preorder bonuses along with an additional 4.99 discount."

We're talking about the "Mercenary Edition/preorder bonuses" which it says we get, but then says we get a $5 discount...

Game costs $60, if you preorder, you'll get discount. If you already bought Alpha or beta, you'll of course get Mercenary Edition. What's so complicated?


To quote Blue:
they also note that those who have already preordered the final version or backed the alpha or beta will also receive the preorder bonuses along with an additional 4.99 discount.

How does that make sense? Jesus. WHERE DOES THE $5/POUND COME INTO THE EQUATION? DO YOU SEE THAT PART THERE????? How are we getting a discount on something already paid for?

Wow. Way too early to release this... Must be extremely feature light... Or... I'll be amazed.

They're out of money, so they kinda have to. There was an article, I think blue linked it, couple of days or a week or so ago that Frontier was in the red.

Ouch, I think I missed that...

I'll pirate this as a reward for the delay. Thanks for nothing, you fuckers!

With one billion in sales in the first 3 days last year, I doubt you'll be missed. This is just gravy to them, at this point.

On their forum faq it says this:

The Premium Beta will be available once the Alpha phase is completed. Beta is where the whole game will come together, and by taking part you will have the opportunity for you to play, test and feedback to us.

Each of the Alpha and Beta products gives automatic access to the following development stages, and of course a download copy of the released game!

I thought when you bought into the alpha / beta you got in on the official release too? Why is there an additional discount?

Wondered that as well. The wording is weird...

Until you mentioned him, I had never heard of Michael Pachter.

We gotta get you out of the house more. We frequently ridicule him here (and with good cause)...

are we gonna get burger shot, clucking bell back? pool? bowling? Driving range? New cars are nice but I have no room to buy the cars I want right now. Details details details, give me some more damn details!

I'd love to see more building interiors, but I'm not expecting it. But it would be awesome. It's definitely something that felt missing, compared to 4.

Why the hell 2 months later? Exclusive is out the window so what gives? That's some serious lame sh!t and doesn't make sense when they could capitalize on the holiday sales. Weird.

Eitherway, stupid move by Rockstar.

You have two pieces of hardware with static innards, and one piece of hardware that could have anything in it. Guess which one gets tested last?

So how does Destiny work exactly? Its not a straight shooter, so there is leveling involved? Experience? PvE? Does it have PvP?

You level to 20, and at that point, the gear determines what level you are above that (by light points).

There's pve, coop (3 person fireteams), and pvp. Raids (6 people teams) open next week I think?

It's a bit of a hybrid...

Prez wrote on Sep 11, 2014, 22:06:
Switching gears, why is the NFL, and more specifically Goodell, under such fire for how the incident was handled? Was the initial two games suspension a matter of discretion or was that what the written rule for off-field criminal activity? If it was the former, the uproar makes sense; if it was the latter I think people should be railing against the lax rules, not the commisioner. If the NFL needs to strengthen its penalties for domestic abusers in light of this then they should and we should all move on.

From an outsider, looking in (that is, someone who doesn't follow sports, but has seen various snippets on the news), the question seems to be when the NFL saw the tape in the elevator. They claim they didn't see it until it leaked (Monday), and they based their decision off of the previously released tape from outside the elevator.

But some folks are saying the NFL got a copy of the leaked tape in April, and chose not to address it. And that it was only after it leaked that they were forced to backtrack, and impose a stricter penalty.

That's what the people I've seen are upset about.

The way people here are going on about the cat in the seat (I love cats too), I would not be to surprized to see a new streach goal coming up soon

Shame it will take them 9 months to add just a model of a cat in your internet spaceships commader seat - then another 16 months to animate it so it does not look like you just sit on it.

This could lead to a new game type, Capture the Cat, and more streach goals of your cat interacting with your fish tank.

It's not like they are trying to make a space combat/trading game or anything - cos if that what you are after, you could just go play the new Elite game, no, this is a game about towels and the likes.

This would finally allow me to fulfill my dream of becoming a space veterinarian. Make it happen, Chris Roberts!

I'd like Space Unicorns that shoot rainbows out their asses as a stretch goal, please. It can't be that expensive...
