I've been way under-leveled in the game so far. Yeah, I've been able to pull through, but I'm level 4, and a lot of what I'm encountering is level 9.

I'm having to kite most encounters at this point.

Retrovirus is a very good 6Dof shooter with a single player campaign. How come no one mentions that?

I'm also a fan of Retrovirus. The game deserves a lot more praise than it gets.

NeonXSZ is also an impressive 6-DOF game. The dev is still calling it "early access" but he's been in end-game content for quite a while, with the main game practically done.

I learned years ago to never live downstairs, after living in an apartment where the floor creaked at over 65 decibels.

I just got a big house with the intention of renting out the extra rooms. Who lives upstairs? I do.

That's really nice of them. I should still have a SoC key somewhere.

I thought that it was a really nice, short RPG. Though if that's the only thing you want out of the bundle, you're better off buying it by itself,

Doesn't Half-Life 2 already support Oculus Rift?
And of course, they should support their new in-house headset.

As for something new...

While I never really cared for Mortal Kombat, I noticed that they used the Dos version here.

Is that really the best version? Cheap-and-easy, sure, but it doesn't seem ideal from an end-user perspective vs arcade emulation or even the earlier Windows version.

I'm also excited to see 4k @ 120 hz.

I wish that they gave it enough bandwidth for 144, but 120 is sill really good. Support for high frame-rates has been the biggest drawback of that resolution.

...Now for video cards to catch up.

It's still Early Access, but Axel looks really interesting.

I was going to say someone should make a dairy farm simulator and "milk" that for as much as possible.

That reminds me of back when I was a kid, I had $20 to spend at a video game store. My dad was trying to be helpful (but knows nothing about video games) and pointed out this farm game and talked about all these farm things you could do.

I, on the other hand, found this game called Lode Runner, and it sounded awesome.

And it was. It was one of the defining games of my childhood.

I'm one of the unfortunate few to have idiopathic hypersomnia. It's nowhere on the level described in the article, but it does make basic functioning quite difficult. I do manage to work, but the brain fog that lasts all day makes it difficult.

I've tried (and failed with) Provigil/Nuvigil and several other medications, so hearing about Flumazenil&#8202; does give me a great deal of hope.

I'll definitely be looking more into this.

Also, I'm intrigued by the connections with anesthesia. I had a surgery when I was in my teens, and I don't recall having the issues with excessive daytime sleepiness issues before then.

Played the game a bit.

Discovered that if you choose certain weapons, some people go absolutely berserk... Even when I wasn't doing all that well, merely using a specific weapon is all it takes.

Unfortunately, "Mute" only stops mics. It doesn't stop text chat. I'm not sure if reporting players does anything, no matter how much they rave, scream, and swear.

Anyone try this game?

It looks like the kind of thing that I'd really like, but I want some feedback, first.

Not bad for $5. The changes to flight from Saints Row 4 are at least interesting enough. It's pretty fun to fly around the city, and flight is more fun than it was in 4.

As for story missions, there seems to be at least one for each of the halo abilities that you get.
Still, that's pretty bare-bones.

I'm an hour and a half in, and it says that I'm 38% done.

Putting the wolf in charge of the hen house. Very frustrating situation, I would say that there should be some sort of academic requirement for being a politician but then we wouldn't have any
Sure they could. They could insist that candidates were members of Skull and Bones, or some other wealthy, elitist, and white college society.

News Comments > Razer Unveils OSVR Headset

Open software standards and a bunch of hardware different vendors catering to different levels of customer expectations is probably the best way to go with VR, so I'm all for this.

The question is, can they get it right?

DK2 is extremely impressive, but at the same time, far from where VR needs to be. Hopefully we'll see what CV1 looks like this year.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Server Issues Follow-up

I experienced some of the "Ghost Cargo" bug.

Basically, there were some pieces of cargo that were glitched. Pick it up, and it immediately ejects. I didn't know what was going on, and wondered if I was accidentally hitting some button to eject it. I eventually gave up after several tries.

When I went and sold it, it appeared to alternate between the two different types of cargo that I was carrying, and it seemed to do that an equal number of times to when I picked up the cargo that I ejected.

I was in a Viper at the time, so even with the glitch, I didn't make much from it. In fact, I pretty much broke even on the run, since I accidentally flew into a policed station before realizing that I hadn't sold my cargo yet.

I also had a bunch of disconnects, but I think that was just my connection to the internet.



As for what is actually profitable, I switched to the Eagle as soon as I could, then mostly did combat missions and bounty hunting. If cargo was dropped, or found something interesting in an unidentified signal, I'd pick it up and take it to an anarchy station.

I do wish that exploration gave more credits, because even with a detailed surface scanner, it wasn't very profitable.
