To me blu-ray discs didn't even exist until I knew for a fact that I could rip them. Discs... Discs are so 19th century. I rip my bought blurays to 1080p h.264 encodes sized about 5gb and have them sit on my NAS and stream them to my TV.. the future!.. And the future does not involve discs if I can help it

But wait, you are still buying/renting the disc to begin with. I can't see how you see buying a BR and using a player as archaic, you have to buy/rip/keep storage/make sure it's all working, etc. Not that what you do is a bad, but I see a very healthy counterpoint of someone just buying the disc and using a player. Simple.

He's buying high bitrate audio/video and then ripping to a lower bitrate (thus taking 25-40+ gig of data down to 5 gig)? Might as well stick with dvds if you're going to do that...

That's like buying a cd and then making 128 mp3s out of it...


With proper X.264 settings it's more like buying a CD and making 320kbps mp3's out of it. I can't tell a difference, but then I am not really caring for that all that much, as long as it's sharp

And if you want to stream blurays to various devices you have no choice anyway. You are not gonna stream a 40gb bluray without issues, certainly not to handheld devices. .. well, not with flaky wi-fi ;p

The thing is that Sony, while it has a multitude of failures doing this, was successful in perhaps the closest analog to what they're doing here: Blu ray discs. So, it's pretty easy for them to make the case to themselves that they should be trying this.

Would like to see a new STALKER updated engine, gfx, etc etc etc. On level with Skyrim would be awesome....

Unfortunately the probability is next to slim. GSC World closed a while back.

i guess you missed this?

http://survarium.com/en

free2play MMOFPS game ... uh.. yeah, how about... no! What does that have to do with Stalker? Stalker was scary because you were alone, because you could never know what would happen or when a blow-out was to occur... how would this ever translate into a mmo with standard fetch quests, quest givers, safe zones and 100% pvp bullshit which probably makes it another pay to win game in the end...

Or.. it turns into another DayZ .. which imo is even worse.

Dunno.. I just become instantly turned off when someone says pay to eh... no wait.. free to play Haven't seen a good f2p ever. And I doubt this one will change that.

Wow, Alpha Centauri 2!! Well that is my first impression anyway. Might have to get this because I LOVED AC.

It's sadly NOTHING like AC

What is it actually like?

A civ 5 mod with aliens and a sci-fi setting, It was probably inspired by SMAC but it has at best a passing semblance... setting wise. Gameplay is really quite different. And AI/Economy is pretty dang stupid/broken

It's funny that he extrapolates from Democracy 2 sales data though. Because if anything you'd have to look at NEW games with new IP to make a point. And even for a sequel, making 50% of the money after release with sales is huge. To him this is bad sales? The real question is: Did it make enough money to continue working on games?

Maybe the real problem is that Cliffski games are niche even within their niche. Which is the case for a few other Indy's as well, and they simply can't find a lot of interest with "new" customers, sale or not.

A major update to the netcode? All it needs is more than 10 ticks per second for client updates... heck even 30 would fix most issues.

Although an intelligent pirate might be aware that Skidrow never released Watch Dogs.... so it must be fake.

They should ban those plastic microbeads. Zero need for them at all. I make mine with natural exfoliates - various plant seeds, ground pumice and loofah, salts, etc. I feel sorry for people who use that crap on their on bodies.


Must have been your avatar, as all this time I thought you were a man.

I am a man. A man who makes and sells soaps and cosmetics. A man who also cares about his appearance. Women of quality like that.

Wow, I have another stalker. Tell me, Harlock, do you have a shrine to me in your bedroom as well?

And why doesn't he stalk me too, considering I replied to that in agreement ;p

These stalkers are not what they used to be....

Well this is gonna be the first Battlefield I am not going to be buying at all.. this setting does not tickle my interest in the slightest. If I wanted to play counter-strike, I'd play Payday 2 or Counterstrike...

Yahoo let their cert expire a couple days ago on one of their mail servers; it looks like the one in use now is an extremely short-lived one:

Issued: 2014-05-20 00:00:00 AM GMT
Expires: 2014-06-27 23:59:59 PM GMT

If you're going to run on certs that expire that quickly, you had better have a robust rollout system to ensure you're always up-to-date...
It seems like everyone companies seem to run into this. Don't they have automations to notify of expiring and expired certificates?

If SSL had a 100% failsafe way to revoke certs you'd never see this issue crop up. But it doesn't. That shit is still manual and it costs money. (For some absurd reason!)

Huh, thought there might be some Memorial Day sales like a lot of the rest of the retail industry. But neither Steam nor Origin nor GMG nor Humble nor GOG have Memorial Day specific sales going on. That's pretty classy, actually.

It's only Memorial Day in the US it's business as usual everywhere else. And Amazon still has a big games sale going on.

Yeah, I keep forgetting that the USA is tertiary market.

Rolleyes (got to use Cutter's fav smiley against him! )

There are sales lots of places. Your post just came off as typical American arrogance as if somehow the rest of the world came to a halt because it's a US holiday.

Rolleyes

Game of Thrones didn't air.... I call that a pretty big world came to a halt" event.

Maybe with the sequel they'll drop the insane pricing scheme and the proprietary storefront at launch, instead of after the last expansion.

They'd have made a lot of money on this gem if they'd been on steam from the beginning.

The listed steam price is 55 or 75$ ... so no, they won't do proper sensible prices... and even with rebate it's 45,64 .. or 62$

That said, at least they don't rip us off with conversion rate etc, as the increase is 19% or VAT .... the problem is, the base price is too high ;p
