Well I played an hour...

Oh my god Orbital combat is annoying as fuck, has zero oohmp behind it, everything dies instantly or has way too short ranges and because the orbit occludes 50% of the shit happening you can literally overlook an ENTIRE FUCKING LANDING ARMY and never even be told one is building up on your starting planet...

Galactic War (the SP) imbalanced as fuck (no way to retreat, so you find the faction commander on turn 3 with no advanced units (I found, literally Orbital Tech, Storage Tech, Tech Slot, Storage Tech) and it dropped me on the friggin faction commander who of course, has ALL the tech. Including nukes.

Nukes by the way, not something you can defend against unless you find the right tech. So yay?

I've gotta say, spherical maps sounded need in theory, but holy crap is this impossible to play on. We need a proper minimap in this game or it's literally UNPLAYABLE since for each planet you have 2 layers (ground/orbit) and no way to look at orbit while you look at what happens on the ground.

PIP is near useless here as you often fight on 3 fronts (orbit, ground and elsewhere ground/orbit)... the voice announcer says useless things and doesn't inform of you the really important things (like friggin teleporter in construction on my starting world, fastest game over ever ;p) While I was looking at enemy planet building advanced laser weapon of doom (only thing I could build, actually to attack him) he teleported half his army on my planet and the only moment I got an info was when my radar blew up, which was about the time my commander died from 300 advanced troops (remember, could only build default land vehicles and nothing else, literally nothing else ;P)

So yeah, this needs a shit-metric-ton of mods to be a decent rts... sigh. At least the AI is pretty damn competent. When it doesn't walk right up to your base at the 4minute mark with no support to die. Which happened to me ;/

Ps.: It has SP in a sense, Skirmish is in and works fine. There is also Galactic war, which is a sort of "travel around stars, find tech, find enemy, fight enemies, win" campaign. No story, but if you want to play SP keep in mind this is literally a draw of luck. You either find the tech you need to win, or you literally do not have a single chance in hell since you can not retreat from a fight (ie, you move on a star on the star-map, and it only gives you the option to fight)

This is one of the few things I backed back when KS was all the hype. So now is the day of truth, huh? PoE will be the 3rd and last day of truth by the way ;p

Jenn Frank, who wrote freelance for The Guardian, has quit writing on games. She's been harassed out. Her sin? She wrote The Guardian's 500 word blog covering #gamergate. She also donated money to Zoe Quinn a long time ago on Patreon and has met Quinn at least once.

She didn't review Quinn's products, and she didn't write something advertising them, she covered #gamergate in a blog (aka editorial.) The Guardian's legal staff reviewed it and recommended she not bother disclosing it.

Is this where we are now? Are our games "journalists" not allowed to personally meet developers nor donate to Kickstarters? What, exactly, do we expect from our game journalists? Do sports anchors not know athletes? Do our music reviewers not spend time backstage or go to awards shows?

They are allowed to do all that, if disclosed BEFORE WRITING AN OP-ED, not AFTER. And Patreon should be 100% forbidden for journalists, not just disclosed.

I've looked at some of the "let's play" videos on the tube and about 2 minutes into the character creation mode I was so bored I was sitting there thinking why the fuck am I wasting my time watching this shit.
Never played any of the previous sims games, is this any good? Does it get any more interesting later on ?
From what I've seen it looked like a facebook game

That's pretty much what it is It only gets interesting when you get mods.. at least SIMS3 was pretty neat what with running your own business and strange crazy and violent random things happening.

It's actually a really neat idea.. put 2 good cameras on there, put VR goggles on, and telepresence in a stadium from your room. The future

ZeniMax Online != Bethesda Game Studios

They both fall under the umbrella of ZeniMax Media, but ZeniMax Online was created specifically for ESO and I assume other MMO/Online games had it done well.

Hopefully Bethesda are working on Fallout 4 right now.

Ah... thanks ,) Guess I confused the 2...

Can you sum it up? Youtube is crappy while I'm on the train.

You can always watched it when you have time It's too much to TLDR

If you followed the drama through youtube videos so far this one is gonna leave you stunned

As an on-off virtual simmer, I gotta say this is kind of lame. Sure it looks kind of cool, but all the printed gauges, avionics etc. are just distractions and they limit your FOV if you have any kind of serious big screen or projector which most sim pit enthusiasts use.

I kind of feel that the OR might make something like this pointless.

but for OR you need to have the control parts where they are in the VR simulation. And this is impossible to do if you put your joystick on your desk.

After all we did such a good job eliminating it from narrower sources, let alone the internet.
Take a stand everyone, take a stand on taking a stand too while you're at it Bulb

In no way am I saying it's practical to eliminate it entirely. I just don't see a problem with people making an effort to reduce the undesirable behavior of the community.

Open letter is not equal to "taking a stand"
Aside that I agree But it's the Internet. Nobody is gonna change it, not even feminists.

The open letter is asking the community to “take a public stand against it”, so I’m pretty sure that qualifies this open letter as ‘taking a stand’. But I'm curious...what in your mind would qualify as ‘taking a stand’?

You take stand by actions, not by petitions. Signing something online makes absolutely no difference to anyone. As long as SJW media is around this war will not end anyway.

The judge's original July ruling endorsed the US government's position that it should be able to access the world's servers. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska ruled.

That's both reasonable and rationale. I have to say, I agree with that. Just because MS has something stashed away in another country, they are the ones that are controlling it and they are ultimately a US company subject to US law - in theory at any rate.



Except they are also subject to the laws where the data resides and in this case obeying US law would mean violating European law.

I think using 4mm coroplast/corflute would be the way to go, it would last for ever. (provided you put out your cigarettes on it lol.

Even better would be if it was somehow foldable like a concertina, so you can hide it easily and even take it somewhere if needed.

Car cockpits would be the way to go, I'd imagine the market would be bigger too.
It's the only way I'll own a lambo

Yeah.. someone ought to tell him that the market for car cockpits is like 500000 times larger ;p If it can support wheels, shifter and pedal it might be something I'd have instantly pledged for. This is gonna be vital stuff for VR, since this construction is very light, and so "full body force-feedback" would be way cheaper to realize.


Near the bottom of the KS it shows that one of the future projects could be an F1 cockpit.

But what's the chance for this KS to succeed and that particular cockpit ever being made? I think these guys have a great idea, but it might not be such a hit on KS. Especially as they only have 1 prototype (understandable, but they need at least a car cockpit too)
