Holy blue flaming Jesus on a pogo stick! What a nightmare the last few days has been since moving into my new house. A total comedy of errors...without the comedy. From the useless dickbag movers to basically having to build a new PC to get online - which I'm still not and have borrowed a friend's extra laptop just to get net access for now. I,ve probably spent 500 bucks in the last 5 days going back and forth to the computer store and buying and retutrning all kinds of crap. Then there's the joy of discovering all those little things in the house that'll need to be changed and fixed and replaced. Remember The Money Pit with Tom Hanks?

Ommmmm....mamaste....*deep breaths*

At least you didn't get flooded in your first week of being in your new house like it happened to me.

I had the same issues getting online in a 20 year old house. Because the tech changed so much the past 20 years it's nearly guaranteed that you can't use ANY of the pre-installed shit. I had to drill new holes in walls to even get my internet from the basement (where it utterly kills my WIFI signal) to the first floor in a place where WIFI spreads properly...

Idiot owners sealed the cable shafts and idiot pre-owners laid analogue cables that don't work for gbit network. So I had to lay my entirely own network infrastructure through 3 floors just to get GBIT cable in the house in 3 rooms and WIFI where I wanted it...

Then I gave up when it came to smart-tv (was a really bad location, and would have to connect it to my router, so I just got powerline network adapters.. work fine No cabling needed anymore.

The stuff you can experience when moving to a new location is infinite. Especially when it comes to ANYTHING that is "pre-installed" ;/

I'm against mods that can be bought for money, that is all.

And yes, that includes paying money for a CS reskin.

Get used to it, because this is how UT2015 is going to roll. Free-to-play core with a mod market that's both free and pay-to-play.

Well I don't have to play that then I will not spend money on mods, but if it's a good game I will play it.

I hope it doesn't look like anything, since it's called BEYOND EARTH and plays on a world beyond earth, no?

To suggest Australia will ever get a space program or unite with pacific-rim nations is quite humorous though. I am sure even Australians would laugh at THAT projection.

News Comments > No Stained Steam Keys for Bundle Buyers

I think the reason it only made them that little money is that when the game released, it was crash-prone, had iffy controls and aside from Interesting story had just no interesting gameplay.... no idea how it's now (I own it via that bundle but never bothered again ;P)

Also Indy Royale bundle all carry OPTIONAL steam keys... so it's not fraud. I know this for a fact, I read the stuff before I buy, and nowhere does it specifically say you get a steam key when buying this.

In the end, it was a "meh" game and such games don't often find audiences...

Of course they do... were there any doubts an illegal court is also corrupt? How else you think judges would ever allow themselves to violate the law they swore upon if they aren't already corrupt?

I can sort of understand him not wanting to be there. After all, it's gotta be rough watching other people do in five years what you weren't able to do in 15.

Or more likely all the sex and boobs, and the mother of dragons... are distracting him ;p

iCEnhancer is really just an ENBseries filter with custom settings by some dude. Yes, they look great in the right instances, but it's not the graphical overhaul that people come into it thinking that it is. That requires hours of seeking out and downloading textures, cars, etc to get anything remotely close to what he shows as "his mod".

This pretty much. It always confused me people consider ICE a proper mod, it is not, it is a shader overhaul, without new textures, new cars, new everything, everything still looks the same ol in slightly different shades of color.

And by the way, it also doesn't really look all that good on it's own...

Is this worth getting over my old version? I like to play this game from time to time. One of the greatest RTS games ever made.

Um... Yes?!

No it isn't... very small changes to graphics and pointless steam and twitch features.. that's it. At least in the old version mods work

And I said it before, but KS should really start getting involved in enforcing KS rules properly....

There was no rule broken. Idiots and their money are quickly parted, and Kickstarter will happily facilitate that (and take their fees for doing so)

There is actually a rule regarding fulfillment of backer rewards... which was violated in this case, and KS ignores it

The combat and traversal in AC never required any skill. I've played all of them and it's always been "hold-two-buttons to automatically run, climb, jump, hop, swing, etc" and "hold block and press counter to automatically kill enemies." In terms of combat, the series has actually improved slightly with each iteration. In the first game, you could literally hold block and press counter to kill every single enemy in the game. In the sequels, they added enemy types that required a slightly different tactics.

Am I crazy, or do I remember being able to climb a little higher and faster in older games, which let you use a jump and grab technique that is no longer possible? Also seemed to be easier to grab ledges when you're falling in the past, which opened up more opportunities for quicker descent. It seems in their effort to make the motion more fluid and foolproof, they've removed player ability/ingenuity from the equation.

The jump and grab was something you unlocked in ACII. It's been in every game since as far as I am aware. It's still pretty easy to grab ledges when you're falling. I have trouble not grabbing ledges when I want to free fall.

Yeah same here, in every AC so far I had more problems with the grabbyness of the char I would want to admit... my stupid char always grabbed everything he could, even when I wanted him to just RUN or fall...

Well i'm man enough to admit when he's wrong. It still seems like a vulnerability the more you update that TC volume and sync it to dropbox though. Also who's this Lilith you speak of eRe4s3r

Haha, my bad I was playing a bit Diablo 3 and heard the name there so often.... the mind takes curious shortcuts sometimes

If truecrypt encrypts properly and you use a good algorithm then delta syncing should be as secure (or insecure?) as truecrypt itself is. Since only a self-contained segment/piece of a whole container is sent, in essence this is as secure as the whole container is, or isn't.. depending on your settings.

I think truecrypt couldn't even work without doing this kind of thing to the container. If it re-encoded the entire container for each change, you'd kill your CPU and HDD in the process if it's full/large ;p

Nah F2P can be done right and the market is slowly choosing the better models that we like. Romero is right about that. It's evolving. There are publishers and developers want to give us what we want.


There are VERY few "done right" f2p games.... vs a billion shitty mobile games (and some pc games too ,p) that all cost either miniscule or nothing, and yet are filled with timers, grind, and constant nag-screens (or advertisement)

I mean I get where you come from, HS and DOTA2 and what not are f2p games done right, but these are few and far between no?
