The AI is fine

until you have more than 3 workers....

I don't remember many problems with having several workers under AI control. They can bunch up in one area of the map, such as if you conquer a city then they might all rush in to improve the roads/land, but this is minor and can happen when they're under player control. Is there something I'm forgetting?

You are forgetting that workers can't sit on the same space as another worker... on certain map configs they literally dead-lock themselves, because workers at the "front" of the chain start work and the workers behind can no longer pass them.

The primary reason why I am playing with a 2upt mod. No stacks of doom, but you can stack 2 units of each kind now.. which by the way, fixes the AI formation problems completely.

They don't do spring sales. Closest they ever had was last year with an all-indie promotion. Past 5 years has always been a 6-7 month wait between big winter and summer sales. That could change, obviously, but I don't understand the expectation when there's no precedent for it.

I always thought they do a spring sale coupled with some kind of community event, ie challenges etc.... like the potato sale ;p Where you could buy a "bag" of indy games for super price and get achievements in them to get some reward.... (Which I got, it was the complete Valve back-catalog at the time)

They are not doing that anymore I guess...

I got 3 games on my wishlist so I am kinda hoping for a sale soon

It'll run just fine on any cpu with more than 2.5ghz and a 670GTX i'll bet. Specs are always mostly bullshit..

I don't need any more Steam sales. I have enough unplayed/unfinished games as it is.

Yeah, I went throughout 2013 without buying a game from Steam at all, until the Autumn sale.

Speaking of sales... where are they? No easter sale/spring sale after all?

Meh, I don't know. I personally think that demonization goes absolutely viral all the time. Mostly on Blues, but also on the net in general. Of course it's only my opinion but I really like both TWD and TWAU still as much as I did the S01E01. I don't see where all the bad mojo is coming from and I don't care either -- it's too easy to get prejudiced by the over-analytic ramblings of self-entitled critics.

Hey now. That's not true..... I'm not overly analytic...

Neither am I. But.... If I play a game, I am going to talk about my opinion of it. And these are subjective.

By the way.. what the heck does self-entitled even mean. Makes no sense. Every human being is entitled with a focus on itself. If that is not the case, that person is likely schizophrenic or depressive.

So if anything, you are saying it's too easy to be prejudiced by "subjective opinions" and to that I say... WELL DUH And if you don't care, your post makes no sense either. Clearly you do care ;p

I like the telltale games are visual novels, but I would never recommend them if someone asks me about a good game.....

The game launched with 15 maps.
BF4 launched with 10.
BF3 9.
CoD Ghosts 14.

I won't be buying the 3 DLC maps. The new game modes that are also launching with the DLC will be free to everyone. Don't see what there is to get so worked up about over a 3 map DLC in 2014.

Not to mention that BF3 broke it's extra game modes by making them expansion exclusive. So nobody fucking played them.... argh

So I got Titanfall for cheap and I got my moneys worth already.... new game-modes sounds good to me. There's already plenty of maps in it....

I gotta say though, I am a really good player in Titanfall and Battlefield... but Battlefield just bores me nowadays. I play once or twice every few weeks and that's it.

Wall running in Titanfall doesn't get old quite that quickly.... the load times do though. On an SSD, longer than 1m....

Twitter

Thats because you can follow twitter accounts only with a twitter account, and it's a good way to stay up-to-date when you use certain services... so basically.. twitter isn't about tweeting, it's about easy reading of tweets that matter to you.

99% of twitter tweets are total crap anyway

Open source---'nuff said.
The Canadian Gov't shut down their Tax web site due to same exploit.

http://tinyurl.com/no6q3qg

You're saying open source projects are inherently less secure than closed source? There are pretty good decompilers around for most languages, so regardless of whether the hacker has access to your original code, he knows what it's doing and can look for vulnerabilities. Microsoft wishes it was otherwise.

Not even Microsoft would have let a commit through to one of the main-stays of internet security, actually the fucking foundation of internet security, that posts your entire secured ssl stream to anyone that asks on the internet. And then dragged their feet for months while it was exploited in the wild.

I think at this point OpenSSL needs to die. This isn't a bug or an exploit, it's a backdoor that was intentionally put in and let through.

Well, it turns out it's not as bad as all that (very bad still). They wouldn't get your unencrypted ssl stream, just 64 kilobyte chunks of server RAM at a time (as many times as they want). So they'd get what's in memory at the time of the hack, which could be most anything, including unencrypted passwords. I just read that the only way they'd get the private ssl key is if they were the first heartbeat request after a server reset.

The problem being that this "did not trigger any alarms, or logs" is the real one... we can not know what was stolen and what wasn't. We have to assume all sites with that RFC enabled were compromised, as in, the full encryption was compromised and can be read by attackers. I am waiting another week to make sure all sites are fixed and then I am gonna be whole-sale changing all my passwords. Gonna be a pain in the back ^^

This was apparently exploited for a whole year before the security researchers found it....
I thought we had such massive issues to the foundation structures of the internet behind us... sigh

I must say the way everything functions even in multiplayer looks amazing. You can even hide your signature from radar by going 'dark' so to speak by shutting off all non-critical systems. They also have advanced maneuvering, which the person that recorded that seems to have a total handle on.

Ok that was some impressive footage indeed Looks to be a game tailor made for VR too.

To some 105 lb annoying chick.

All points are true, except this one. Bloody Mary is not just any annoying chick, if they put her in as old lore tells it she is literally akin to a prime evil ;p

That said, I maintain that this removes itself further and further from actual gameplay. It's a dialog and weird cut-scene thing, a visual novel in a way... but there was no actual puzzle solving. Like literally NONE.

I didn't think I'd agree to this opinion but after ep2 i thought they'd fix this again. They did not. It's a good movie to watch and click through, but it's becoming a really crappy game

Had a coworker who raised goats, years ago. I went out once to see what all the fuss was about. They're very cute, when they're little...but trust me when I say you never, ever, want to see the back end of a pregnant goat. You literally want to avert your eyes...


Seriously... WHY? Why? Why do you mention that.. how is anyone supposed to resist googling that to see what you are talking about? What's Google going to think about us now that we googled it...

Tip toeing the line for likeness, hopefully they got some permissions.

Hehe, there is no way anyone can enforce likeness rules on an 8bit stylized pixelated shooter like this... which is pretty much why so many of these 8bit games exist I'd wager.
