How about no? (Money vs Trolls ,p)

Forum moderators that can be just as much trolls as anyone else. Since trolling is always subjective...

And the second link with Facebook is the typical content bubble. You are not on Facebook, you don't use Facebook, you use what Facebook thinks Facebook should look like for *you*. Which is rarely if ever what you actually want it to look like.

The content bubble is very real, and I think it's manipulated by the government. The Snowden documents at least implied as much.

Seasons passes are up for passing

I know, right? Remember when a game was just a standalone game with no expectation of expansion pack, unless it sold really, really well? Now a game is an excuse to milk as much cash as possible from people. Season passes are just automatic now, regardless of whether it makes sense, is desired by consumers, etc. etc.

All season passes do to me nowadays is make me not want to buy the game at all... I wait until it's on sale with "all content"... for a fifth of the price.

If I want DLC I buy it on sites where it's cheaper than on steam, but often I don't want em at all Especially games like this that you play once and then you are "done" .... I find season passes for something like that absurd. At least back in the old days expansions usually added to the game from the end, so you could continue on after a game ending to experience more.. but now it's as you say, milking the cows for cash.

BF4 is basically the first time I didn't subscribe to the normal buying ways publishers want, bought game for cheap on GMG with a bunch of credit and voucher(just 30€) and ended up buying the DLC I wanted for half of what it costs on Origin.... so I ended up paying less for what I wanted of the game than just what premium alone would have cost...

Google should be liable, just like GM is for faults in their cars killing people.

Right, but we don't want automated cars to be sued out of oblivion either. They're going to be superior than humans in nearly every way.

If they are networked and linked to traffic control AI then I would have no problem believing that. It could also massively raise the speed of travel as predictive pathing would allow PERFECT intersection crossings, you could be traveling at 250km/h and never even notice.

I do hope this comes in my lifetime because I decided to never own a car. So self driven cars would be even better, as these would most likely not be owned by people, but by the state. Since a large cool pool of shared cars would be INFINITELY more efficient. After some learning phases the AI would literally be able to predict where cars are needed and drive them there in advance. The future looks bright

Removing the human element of out traffic would prevent tens of thousands of deaths too.

This is basically just packing what you already can have on any PC, or tablet for that matter, into a neat mainstream noob friendly package. I don't mind, but I won't pledge either.

I never played GalCiv2, but I thought the AI was supposed to be one of the best - no?

It was. Higher diffs did not just mean higher production and economy bonusses, it also meant the AI got more routines turned on. So where on lower diffs it would let you get away with amassing a fleet on its border, on higher diffs it would warn you to take them away or face war, etc.

But yeah, eventually the full AI was on, and then diff levels above that would just get bonusses.

The AI in Galciv 2 was excellent. Even if it stays the same, it'll still be a lot of fun to play against.

AI was only decent because you couldn't tell it to fuck off with it's space stations in your territory. (funnily, neither could the AI do that to you) so the game always degenerated in a station rush. He who had the most had the most advantages. That was a stupid as hell gameplay idea

  • O.C. Couple Obsessed With ‘World of Warcraft’ Sentenced to Prison for Extreme Child Neglect.

    Rather a perfect online family than the shit I see every day around me in reality... Though in this case child neglect is what it is. There is no excuse for it. Don't get yourself a child if you can't handle it.

    Angry Joe vs Risen (NSFW)

    Well he plays it with a controller... and the dodging is integral part of the combat system, and he never once dodges ;p Dodging gives you invincible frames... so if you play crap with dodge you can literally never die.

    It's too bad the otherwise good game gets marred so badly by that last fucking map. I swear I refuse to play that shit further ~.~ It aggravates me utterly.

    It's kinda hilarious that this game won "Best of Gamescom" award.. youtube gameplay looks spray and pray vs giant tank like targets so that every noob can hit anything

    Yeah, the future of multi-player shooters is consolized shooter gameplay 4 vs 1 ... with forced coop and no dynamic levels, destruction or anything even remotely interesting.

    Snorefest ^^

    I take it you're not a Left4Dead fan

    You take correctly, aside from the issue that the game is ZERO challenge if you play it with proper game geeks it's also extremely boring to me.

    That said, I am starting to get REALLY bored of modern shooters altogether... BF3 BF4.. it's all one giant fucking blur... more shooters with new ideas aren't really a bad thing, but forced COOP isn't what I am after...

    This might have been a good game. But the end-game map, Skull Island, has everyhing I hate about these kind of RPG's it might easily be the worst map ever made.

    Has anyone asked the booth babes what they think of booth babes at conventions? Seems to me no one has really cared to ask.

    Has anyone asked former boothbabes? I think there's where the truth's to be found.

    XL was very generic. Quite frankly, this trailer looked generic also. Doesn't mean it's necessarily poorly implemented, just doesn't have any character of it's own from what I can see.

    Yeah... when I read skylines I hoped it would be something in the future. Too bad Sim City Mars never really happened. Or that MARS mod for Sim City 4 for that matter.
