The Oatmeal skewered Christopher Columbus last year, and well.

I like how these sarcastic videos never mention the child prostitution ring he ran for his own motley "crew" and the victims of which he later sold into sex slavery on the main land. Yep, a guy one definitely should celebrate.

That article forgets that when users have no reason to upgrade, whether it's free or not, they will not upgrade. So MS real problem is that their OS hasn't really done anything worthwhile in a .. while. Windows 8 is a catastrophe. Not technically where it has some ups, but PR wise. And Metro might easily have been their largest misstep in the decade. There is absolutely NO REASON to make Desktop and tablet experience identical. NONE. Desktops are NOT TABLETS.

And Windows 8 is certainly not worth 240$ (or 250 as it costs here)

I won't upgrade from 7 anytime soon.. in fact unless DX12 becomes Win10 exclusive and gets massive support from games I will not even CONSIDER upgrading ^^

And here is a fun thought. Imagine MS had pushed Windows 8 as update through Windows 7 update pipeline..... does this sound like a good idea to anyone?

I just moved from Win7 to Win8.1, since I got a copy of the latter for $7.50 and my Win7 install was giving me trouble.

After I installed classic shell (really, required even on Win7 to make it usable) and did the usual tweaks, gotta say I like it better than anything since Win2k.

What... 7$? How? By the way, I made a brain-typo the price is obviously not 250.. it's 50 to 90. Didn't even realize you can get Windows 8.1 Pro for that price now. That's actually hilarious Must sell really badly if they go this far down in price.

Tell the former me to invest in Apple, who am I kidding the former me would just laugh..

No idea what you are trying to say iTunes doesn't have GoT and doesn't even offer original Breaking Bad in Germany.

iTunes has literally the WORST selection of content of all available choices

Ps.: I am from the 80ies

FF14 is the only MMO I have ever played where it won't honor the remaining time on your subscription after you cancel the game. I had about half a month left when I canceled my subscription and it may as well have told me to fuck off.

Then you should file a complaint or demand refund. Canceling your access before the PAID FOR time has run out invalidates the ENTIRE contract ie, the contract is null and void. Meaning you can ask your bank to get your money back. And you should. Behavior like that is absolutely scummy.

If you are a game developer you should consider not putting your eggs in the basket of gamasutra....

Also HTML5 games should not be allowed on Steam. It just clutters the store with even more crap.

What eggs?
It's a developer posting his learnings for other developers to read.
Do you know what the #1 site for developers is?

The eggs that are the "only mention of this game they'll ever get anywhere"

Maybe putting that on a site that has earned massive ire in the past month and is the prime target of boycotts is not smart idea? And being connected with Leigh Alexander you might as well give up promoting your game. Because the hate mobs will inevitably draw you into the war.

And gamasutra is the #1 for developers? Maybe developers want to find a new site...

That's an article discussing learnings, not promoting a game, though. It's aimed not at consumers but fellow developers.

Ah But have you heard of this game before this news post? My point was simply that now I have seen it linked to gamasutra I look at it with a different mindset. It spoiled my first perception. Literally.

Gamersgate is still going on. And gamasutra is still the number 1 place for unprofessional bullshit.

Netflix in Germany has (original) Breaking Bad and doesn't have Game of Thrones. Sky has (original) Game of Thrones and doesn't have Breaking Bad, Amazon has non-original Breaking Bad doesn't have Game of Thrones.

warez site has both original..

Guess who wins.

It's a system designed by idiots.

What did you think "system restore" is doing? It images changes since last restore, and restores them ALL for ALL activated drives (settings on a drive let's you disable that)

Yeah, it doesn't actually do that. It's not a full-blown image it restores, it restores "mission critical" files (windows files, drivers, etc, and for some reason your av database) to a previous version. It's SUPPOSED to leave things like documents, programs etc alone. I've never actually seen it do what Wallshadows described, so that's why I was wondering if A:I saves in a weird location.

Mhh, then we talk about 2 different things apparently, sorry ;/

Belkin explains why nobody should own Belkin hardware

just the idea that my router would need to connect to "da cloud" to even give me access is just bloody stupid.

reading up on this it was actually an optional feature (DynDNS) that handles static ip when you are on a dynamic IP .. ISP...

So it's actually a neat feature by Belkin... maybe I was too harsh It would make sense that if it's down things could go wrong very badly, given that it's a defacto fake DNS.

Crazy the way that this shows no signs of slowing down.

Question for Bluesers: when was the last time you spent money on this project? I'm just wondering who is driving this and why.

Mind you, this is not a complaint or criticism. These people are funding the game for the rest of us. I'm just curious.
I put in 30 or 35 bucks way back in the beginning of all this. Haven't spent any more on it since then.


Same here....

The part where they flew through the city on their way to dock, was that free-form flying, or was it a predetermined path? Because if that was free-form, I think I just had a little accident in my pants....

landing on planets will be in-engine cutscenes. you just watched one

Sigh. I knew it was too good to be true.

Well, the fact that it's in-engine means they could, in theory, make it manual someday.

Forget manual... can we SKIP that? Who wants to see a scripted landing sequence like that each time..... sigh

Yep it had very nice graphics, and honestly fantastic CG sequences. And even if nonsensical at times, they were well directed from a cinematographic standpoint
Agreement has been reached! World peace achieved!

Wouldn't that be nice? As artist obviously I enjoy good artwork though. It also makes me a very strong cynic... ^^

I had to run a system restore on my system because Windows kept on hanging at the start up screen likely caused by a driver shitting the bed. When I finally got back to my desktop, I went to fire up A:I and noticed it was greyed out.

My system restore did something I never thought was possible and removed the game and thus my save files. So now I have to spend another eight hours to download and play catch up for another seven or so and I just don't feel up to doing it right now.

Sort of extinguished the flame of wanting to play the game for now.

Your house sounds a bit unusual.

It's possible the dude lives in a rough neighborhood. In real bad spots it not unusual to have bars on your windows, reinforced door etc. Of course if you live in a regular neighborhood it'll just make your house look like a complete fucking psychopath lives there.

You'd be surprised. This is a peaceful outskirt near Berlin on a steep straight hill road. 5 houses here have steel shutters, electronically closing ones, reinforced ceiling windows and doors, motion detections with lights and alarms. Solid iron fences and I think 2 at least have hidden cameras. And most of them now have protected cars and solar panels with synthetic DNA. We have regular police information meetings how to better protect the houses and cars/valuables to reduce incentive for break ins and theft. Break ins are a huge issue in the polish German border regions.

If I were allowed, I'd install sentry turrets.. but sadly the state doesn't want that.

Also it helps with insurance payments. ^^
