I stopped playing This War of Mine. It ended up depressing me.

Really on the fence on that one. I've been watching some lets plays and it looks fantastic, from a gameplay perspective. But yeah, the subject matter is extremely depressing. It kind of reminds me of Papers, Please (both being stuck in a regime where you're trying to survive and optionally help (or screw over) other people), but at least with PP, there were brief pieces of humor, here and there. War just looks depressing as fuck (which, in all fairness, it should be).

Either way, I commend the devs. It leaves you with something to think about, and remember this kind of shit actually happens in the world (while you and I have our nice hot dinners with roofs over our heads, etc).

GTA 5 PC Isn't Delayed, Rockstar Says

Woot! Jan. 27th! Can not wait!

Since Cutter also sent this in, I'll post a general question to all of you. Would you like more coverage of stories like this? I tend to view it as non-news/clickbait material (since nothing really suggested it is delayed), but I don't want to spoil everone's fun.

As resident GTA nut, I'd settle for changing the site name to Blue's GTA News, featuring 24/7 GTA updates.

Okay, here is a modified 11 station loop.

11 Stop Loop

All credit to those providing the information in the original Reddit post I linked earlier. I make no claims to the efficiency of this route. In fact, I suspect it criss-crosses itself but *meh* whatever. Also I know there are some rare locations not on this list that are single jumps away from stations on the list. But, all the stations are within 100 ly of the next on the list.

I just love that fact that a game can generate this type of planning/discussion/collaboration outside the game itself.

Calling all Bluesers -

Anyone have an undelete or similar program they really like?

Old man installed Win7 over win7 (don't ask) and trying to figure out if I can rip some data off the disk......


I've used File Scavenger both at work and home:
http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm


Found a program called "Puran" that shows tree structure and appears to be working pretty well....if it doesn't work (it is showing his User drive and being in excellent condition - sooooooo) then I will try that one. Thank you sir.

Yeah, with File Scavenger, you have to complete a scan, and then switch to tree view to choose what files/folders to restore.

It's save my bacon on an external drive once, I've kept it around ever since.

First big flop of the year? Watched people play it, and while it does look fun, it also looks like the exact same thing, over and over...

I played this the week it came out on PS1. I was utterly blown away - I loved it! Will definitely be getting this for nostalgia value.

It's funny, looking at it now, it's almost laughably bad, graphically speaking. But for it's time, it was mindblowing. It and Wipeout both were just huge leaps...

Yet get a little closer you realise they have an agenda of control. Of making it about Islam. Or using Islam to push their own agendas, be it making money or just generally trying to domineer.

I feel like you could say that about a lot of religions, including my own.

I liked This is the End, but The Interview was a stinker. Glad I only spent the $6 on it for the VOD, instead of going to a theater for the disappointment.

This is the End was really awesome, and I agree that the Interview cant really compare, but as far as buddy buddy comedies go I thought it was pretty decent. I do have a thing for Seth Rogen films, people are always going on about how low brow these movies are and I really dont get that. The jokes are crude and ridiculous but they spare no one (including and perhaps especially themselves) and it takes intelligence to 'get' that.

And Seth's movies aren't nearly as bad as say, Adam Sandler's.

I thought Interview was ok to good. Not as good as End or Pineapple, but still enjoyable.

Speaking of ditching the txt line, I'm disappointed the ManHunter games aren't on gog.

Nin, fire up dosbox and head over to myabandonware.com, they all there and play fine in dosbox

That's not a bad idea at all...I used to have them on 3.5 floppies but I've not had a floppy drive in I don't know when.

Sony actually considered just not releasing the movie at all, so anything is gravy at this point, right?

They're still going to lose money on it. But getting any of it back is welcome.

Rather interesting sign of the times that 31 million online. I'm sure theater owners are pissed, but the times are changing.

It's confusing that his company is named "Origin PC." I just assumed that he was working at EA Origin's website, and might have been heading that up. I guess it's not infringement, but damn is it confusing.

Yeah, that was a little headscratching at first...

I'd still love to try Valve's controller...I may totally end up hating it, but it at least looks interesting.

I didn't mind Act 1, can't believe how long they're taking to do Act 2. But my main gripe was the difficulty. Point and click adventure games have become stupid easy since the old King's Quest days.

Well to be fair part of the difficultly was fighting with text parsers.

OMG the hair pulling in those first few Space Quest/Police Quests...

Speaking of ditching the txt line, I'm disappointed the ManHunter games aren't on gog.

When I first heard about this, I thought well maybe they'll do better this time. And then I saw that it was free-to-play and they lost me.

AFAIK Brink was not F2P. It still ended up sucking balls. At least this way, anyone can try it and see for themselves.

DB is listed as F2P...
