Cool indeed, we'll see if the game holds up to a 2nd playthrough now.

Kickstarter could have avoided this clusterfuck if they had just accepted paypal from the start and not partnered with Amazons payment service that doesn't work fuck all for Europeans. (most of Europeans have EC cards, not credit cards)

I have thought about subscribing to Rock, Paper, Scissors, but they only fund themselves through Pay-Pal and I won't ever use that POS. The people running Pay-Pal are flat out incompetent.

But not as incompetent as news media as a whole.

The point is to make a good presentation of future gameplay. Many KS that fail don't have that. That specific card game had the problem that there was absolutely no way to tell whether that was any fun to actually play or not.

Well, Dragonfall was worth the money imo. It was leaps and bounds better than the original campaign, and with all the new content and enhancements, it seems like a better time than any to pick it up if you haven't already.

We'll see.. next months have many game releases and isometric turn based rpg is not on my plate currently I am more hyped for Civ: Beyond Earth

It's not free for owners of Shadowrun Returns.... that summary is a bit confused. Only backers and dragonfall buyers get it for free, the rest is supposed to buy it (haha!)

Since most botters are AFK, I wonder if a random CAPTCHA test every couple of hours would solve the problem. Fail too many, or don't respond in time, and BAN HAMMER!

Wouldn't it be easy to do this? Just make it so that there is a start-game button (after card selection) in a random place on the screen and bots would be fucked. Time-out of 30 seconds

Captcha is no solution. Bots are better at reading captchas than humans are...

Does it have a working savegame function now?

It has the same issues as the previous version.. if what one hears is true

PASS then. Fable had the worst savegame system I've ever encountered. I feel the gamer rage well up in me just thinking back to it.

Well my rage swells up just thinking about the GUI, I remember having to scroll through stuff with DEL and PAGE UP or some nonsense like that. Because making standard PC control bindings used in RPG's since 1990 is so avant-garde....

They did beef the graphics.. but this games problem never were the graphics ;p

I simply cannot see this without singing Black Hole Sun.

Funny, every time I see the name of this title, I am reminded of the Emperor of the Fading Suns title from many years ago.

Same here..

Either way, bog standard "paint stars your color" 4x... not worth your time if you are already sick of the genre as a whole and just look for something new or intelligent.

all i want is a twist-rudder, and on the throttle, a good thumb joy for lateral and vertical thrusting. that's it! no HOTAS setup has it. so infuriating. the warthog seems great, but no twist-rudder. and only the CH throttle seems to have a real thumb-joy akin to a console left analog stick. i feel like i'm taking crazy pills, how is this not a straightforward thing? instead we get 4 hat switches for your left index finger instead, it makes no sense!!!!

This is exactly my problem too. I have no idea what kind of setup people use, but in these games not having strafe not on the throttle controls makes absolutely no sense, and I have never seen a setup that has this either.

Really? What you're describing is EXACTLY how I use my Saitek x52 in Elite: Dangerous

The HAT switch at the front of the throttle is where I bind my lateral / vertical thrust functions. My finger naturally rests there while playing, and so it's easy to reach and activate. It works fantastic.

Is this the "4 HAT switches for your left index finger" that you were referring to, Slick? If so, why is using that such a problem? Like I said, it works perfect for me, but maybe it's just down to my own preference.

so the x52 has this then... good to know

I have no idea what kind of setup people use, but in these games not having strafe not on the throttle controls makes absolutely no sense, and I have never seen a setup that has this either. And this is pretty much why I think about just using KB for this, on KB i always have strafe controls, and roll controls, any rotating controls can be on the mouse. That way I can strafe in a turn while boosting or cutting engine.

But with most joysticks there doesn't seem to be any way to actually do this.

Just a question.. but is Elite properly playable with KB/M ? I can't handle space-flight with joystick ;p

Spaceflight is actually closer to ego shooter than flight sim.

Anyhow, thanks guys 40 is a fair price for this

That was cool article on the wastewater treatment facility.

One thing they didn't address is how do they detoxify the water from the medical waste that's in it? Bleach is awesome but can it truly clean water from the sheer amount of pharmaceuticals that millions of people have in their waste?

That's not in because they don't do it... there are prototype systems that can filter this stuff out, but they cost in the multi millions. I think their argument is that through dilution the concentrations are low enough to be safe.

Very frustrating to hear about these things. You have to do this thing and if you don't like it then your only recourse is our secret court process that you are guaranteed to lose or a 250k daily fee. Unreal.

That is very cool, I for one would be proud of that facility and what it did to my waste products. Where Im from it just goes, hell I dont know where it goes. Into the sewers I would guess?

In the western world pretty much every country has sewers that go straight to facilities like these. Nobody can afford to not recycle waste water. It'd poison the landfills otherwise. And with poison I mean "wasteland" literally.
