Possibly the Most Embarrassing GTA V Death Everů

Mine was a fence incident. Was running away from someone and I went to scale a fence and jumped to early - hit the fence, bounced off, then fell backwards onto the sidewalk, died. wtf.

Remind me to look for a god-mode the moment GTA 5 comes to PC that kind of shit is exactly why I don't like realistic games Hilarious at first, sure, not so hilarious when it happens in a mission...

Might as well add Chess as an Olympic sport next.
Imagine all the Olympic Call of Duty players, getting pumped on Mountain Dew and Doritos
Chess is already recognized as an olympic sport, just a FYI.

In the age of augmentation and impossible to detect doping the olympics become more and more irrelevant anyway. Although I'd watch a pure "Aug + doping" olympics. At least then it would be fair for everyone taking part.

It amazes me that Uber is sued all over the world by now, yet it still keeps going, both in those countries and continues to expand in others, like its untouchable or something....

Was a documentary on dutch tv while ago about them and the other so called "sharing" services, was an eye opener for me. I knew of course about all the rules real cab drivers here need to abide cq pay for (passenger insurance and all that) and saw the point of unfair competition and the fact that if your in a accident as a passenger your screwed, but its gone far beyond people picking up others since they where going into that direction anyways, its a business for most these days which undercuts the "real" companies and since its not a job as in company hired an employee there are not taxes, pensions etc. etc... short term nice, long term bad. My take on it anyway.

Yea it cracks me up. Minneapolis has had a law against this very thing for many many years. It is a city and state regulated service for people, and UBER and others think they can just ignore that? If you want to be a taxi, get the license, follow the rules. Period.

At first I was really confused as well what the problem was, but yeah.. once you read up what Uber actually does and how it subverts not just existing laws, but establishes a system of low-paid service slaves in essence that only exist because they ignore existing laws and regulations... I mean wtf? This kind of subversion of capitalism is illegal for a reason, once you let that slip you can forget about well paying jobs for eternity.

SOTS2 was a screw-up mostly attributable to Paradox. That became apparent the more I learned about the whole thing.

X Rebirth was a screw-up totally attributable to Egosoft.

The history of the developers alone will tell you that if nothing else.

Egosoft needs to learn it can't keep doing the same crap over and over. How many more failed launches will it take for them to get it?


Can you blame Paradox for a dev coding an engine that can't handle the game they are making? And a dev that implements ideas that literally nobody wants in an turn based 4x (turns taking in excess of 5 minutes)? I mean I get your point, but Paradox was the gatekeeper that failed, while Kerberos was the dev that failed.

And yeah.. the problem is Egosoft made a shit-ton of money from Rebirth from all the fans that (stupidly) bought into it. From what I hear it was enough to keep Egosoft afloat for 10+ years. And that a studio slacks off and basically just recycles in such state is sadly reality ;(

I don't have an Android device at the moment, but wanted to take advantage of some of these free apps in the event that I purchase one in the future. Is there really no way of obtaining these apps without an Android that has the Amazon Appstore installed?

no

Yep the game launched buggy in January. That is ancient history...

Ancient history, sure.. my first and last impression though.

And considering that developers usually want first impressions to be good, it still baffles me how people can release games in such state. Don't expect people to forget that, IDG is to me the dev that released a broken game. In the same mental row as SOTS2 and X: Rebirth

Edit: Heck, spelling is hard without coffee ;p

They usually do it because they need to start generating revenue or else start laying people off. It sucks but it's the reality of game development. People gotta get paid. As with most Kickstarters, iDGi underestimated how much money they would need to finish the game.

Cases like this are why I appreciate Early Access. Developers can start generating revenue before officially releasing the game. They also get the benefit of public testing and feedback, ensuring the final product is more polished. Customers buying Early Access builds know what they're getting into (or at least, they should) so there's no disappointment when the game is buggy and incomplete. Consortium would have benefit from Early Access. Same for Sword of the Stars 2 and X:Rebirth.

The impact of X: Rebirth in early access after it was already 5 years in development would have been disastrous one way or the other though... lots of people see Early Access as part of their first impressions.

American Conquest was better than Cossacks 2.. so let's hope they realize their mistakes and make it not a pain in the ass game (And let's hope it's not 3D)

Edit: ps, I remember a game in that engine called Alexander.. I swear I could never find that anywhere.

May I just say? Releasing large long and (story wise) connected point and click adventure games in buggy half-assed episodes every few months is the...

FUCKING DUMBEST THING EVER

This isn't like Telltale games, where you can basically get a recap. In this you get thrown into episode 4 and you are supposed to remember the last 6 months worth of episodes.

Love how "gamer" takes the headline rather than "high as a kite" or "mentally ill". It's surely one of those two.

Don't be absurd, there is no place for journalistic reporting in a clickbait-piece. In Germany you pull that, you get the bill for the emergency services you activated. I hear the repeat offender amount is zero.

Had Max Payne 3 for over a year. Still can't get it to launch past initializing at the start. I've spent HOURS trying all the "fixes" people have posted. I can't tell you how tempted I am to just get the pirate "fix". If only the game was supposed to be any good I'd probably care that little bit more than I do and try the final solution. Bottom line? **** DRM.

You do know that downloading a crack for a game you own is actually legal, right?

Not just the FBI. The President says it's so.

That's not exactly totally convincing, but he's officially said it.

Reminds me of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq...

If it had giant robots that could trample houses, explode random neighborhoods and trigger a vast alien invasion that kills some random Sim's baby, maybe might be interesting.

But not.

Sony hack was 'cyber vandalism,' not act of war, says Obama.

Other than the fact he is a decent speaker, he says about as asinine things as Bush did, but it sounds like sugar when he says it.....

Delivery matters, if it is the same headline I saw either, the other side says it was an act of war. So we going to war over computer hacking? I've heard our military has been hacked for years, but when it's movies that is an act of war? Seems like they want to war on anything now.

Not to mention it's unproven that it was North Korean hackers. The FBI saying so does not mean it is so.
