Yeah, people who got stuff seized didn't have standing because the charges weren't against them: it was against whatever was seized. So now we have fun court cases like United States vs. $10,000 In American Currency, or State of Tennessee vs. 2013 Ford F-150 Truck.

I so, so wish I was kidding.

It would be more hilarious if the Ford truck won that case ...

Meh...

No deformations of the ship-body due to waves, no complex simulation of weather dynamics (ice rain, winter storms etc.) no leaks and pump system, no compartment simulation... it is basically just a few models swimming on the water with a % damage stat, but without compartment based simulation of buoyancy the ships will not behave realistically nor behave correctly with load (ie, they won't have a slightly shifting center of mass, etc........) there is no ballast simulation, no random engine failures, no crew management... it's just sad. Someone do a PROPER ship sim

Here. It stops with this game and rape simulators. And pupping torturing simulators. Draw a line for once.
To me, the line is pretty clear, it's not like: "yeah but then where does it stop?"
This is where it should stop. Any rational person should see that a game that forces the player as the sole objective, to kill innocent civilians for fun, with realistic executions in the most brutal manner, is sick. Why not kill kids, too?

http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/376/?

You can draw lines wherever you want, for other people that line is nothing but irrelevant graffiti

Ps.: No game "forces" you to do anything. You have dozens of choices, one of which is NOT PLAYING IT. You have however no right to insult anyone who does play it.

Caution is warranted but most radiation we generate that can get inside a house by bending and diffraction instead of piercing (like radio waves, wifi, not like xray) has nowhere near the energy to be ionizing. Adding more wifi waves (if this even makes sense) doesn't increase the harm much because of the quantum nature of electron excitation.

This is heavy.


Good news. It only causes brain cancer and leukemia in children. Other then that it appears completely safe!

"Several early epidemiologic studies raised the possibility of an association between certain cancers, especially childhood cancers, and ELF-EMFs. Most subsequent studies have not shown such an association "

This is why reading is a helpful skill.

You all need to go back to sucking Jack Thompson's dick and stop pretending you haven't murdered zillions of pixel people over the years with very thin pretenses of justification. Including innocent pixel people and cop pixel people.

Suddenly some people make a game that doesn't attempt to justify or make excuses for it's "protagonist" and everyone is offended. Check your hypocrisy.

What? People are hypocrites? News at 11

What makes you think this game will get expansions?

Since release it had 1 patch, and that patch didn't add any features nor fix any of the major complaints. The game is still what its 54% rating on Steam suggests. A massive fail

A massive fail would imply a game released in an unplayable state, like Rome 2 or Sword of the Stars 2.
A fail would imply a game released in a bad - barely playable - state, like Civilization 5.

Beyond Earth is absolutely playable and even reasonably balanced since the patch you mentioned. It isn't riddled with bugs like all of the aforementioned games, so a constant barrage of patches isn't needed. Indeed by any reasonable measure Beyond Earth is merely a disappointingly mediocre game.

So why exactly would Firaxis not release any expansions for it? When comparing it to its predecessor, Beyond Earth only requires some tweaking to make it as good a game. That and a healthy dose of atmosphere.

No, a fail is when something has the potential to be great, but fails to be so because the people making it didn't go the extra step to make that actually happen. Beyond Earth is the prime example of POTENTIAL wasted. When you have the entire backstory of Alpha Centauri to use, you do NOT create a generic sci-fi 4X that barely even resembles CIV2 in depth.

Couldn't the devs put the game on Humble Bundle or a similar service and regions don't matter? (no clue about the laws on your island)

They could The question is whether the game is region locked then (Doesn't seem to be case here) so yeah.. buy it.. outside of AUS region? On like.. dunno.. sites that sell steam keys or whatever. Or if all fails on GOG

You will find people paying to do work that they should be paid for everywhere. Can you blame the devs for doing this? You gotta fleece the stupid, it's business 101

TOTAL WAR: STONE AGE!

Now with enhanced romance options: 1) Club
2) Smooth Rock
3) Drag by hair into cave kicking

It's called Total War, not Total Sex Simulator.

Also, Chris Taylor tried to KS a stone age game. It tanked.

W-what? People wanted the family tree mechanics back in the TW series. I'm just proposing they add Stone Age marriage mechanics.

Expecting historical accurate portrayal of marriage/sex/slavery in medieval, pre-medieval (or basically any post 1900) societies in games with AAA budgets is a pipe-dream

That real life vs racing game comparison is pretty big bullshit.

If you ever drove a car and had a dash-cam... you know, what a camera sees is NOT what the human driving sees, so if both game and camera recording look identical then the game failed at the basic premise (being there, vs only seeing a recording). This means Project Cars is not realistic looking, it is a realistic simulation of a CAMERA. Not of *you* actually being there. Or better put, that's an utter fail for a simulation that wants to be realistic.

Just pointing that out....

I think most people rebuying the game are doing so for the Online game.

I will likely play single player again with all the changes. We'll see.

As for Pillars, I'll get it eventually. My backlog of RPGs is way too big to get right away.

D:OS, I really enjoyed but haven't finished. Im at the end but apparently missed picking up Inert Stones I thought were useless. Turns out they are the used Star Stones needed to complete the game. I haven't been will to sit down and go through a list of locations and try and figure out where the missing stones are.

as Beta tester that made me laugh out loud. We buggered Larian to make it very clear those stones are important. The goblin in your Homestead says it specifically, bring these to him and unlock new areas in the homestead, and there are 2 major situations where these stones will teleport you to your homestead and unlock new rooms with your companions talking about it. How did you miss that?

I don't think that could have been made any more obvious without breaking 4th wall.

The Total War bashers are a bit of an enigma to me. I get that Creative Assembly has been releasing games with some big downsides since Empire:TW - I really do. But unless you just find the horse and musket era completely off-putting, it just boggles my mind how people cannot think it is one of the best strategy games ever made once you install the Darth Mod for it. Shogun had some brilliant community made fixes that made it as brilliant as it could be, and even though the "Darth Modder" has hung it up there is still the TWCenter Rome 2 section. Have you seen the changelist for some of these? Every complaint addressed. If you are going to be idealistic and say you shouldn't have to mod your games that is fine but I think you ignoring the biggest advantage PC gaming has over console gaming - a community-improved experience.

The main problem in Rome 2 is that with a complete lack of proper politics and family trees you can't actually DO total war And while mods make things more historical, they can't fix things that are hardcoded.... like the sea battle AI (still one of the worst things ever to touch Total War)

The Darthmod greatly improved the Sea Battle AI in Empire. Why wouldn't they be able to in Rome?

I don't know why, but I own ALL total war games, and obviously I am big into mods. Sea Battle AI is a complete mess in every mod I tried in Rome 2 (And also Shogun 2, though there at least I can mostly ignore it). From Darthmod (Which I don't actually like, makes siege combat way too slow) to Radious Mods.

I will make jumps of joys when Warhammer version of this game does NOT have sea battles.

You should never underestimate how much difference a gun on a ship makes to the AI. With "melee" being an option for 90% of the vessels, the AI will always try to ram or board you (or if it's skirmishers, constantly run away from you, which is SO MUCH FUN in a game where battles take 20+ minutes... sigh). And more awesome, unless you BOARD or SINK a ship, any fleeing ship means you can replay that battle 5+ times.

There are mods that boost auto-resolve for naval engagements for a reason

Anyway, I don't know why, but I did not like Rome 2 at ALL. I liked Shogun 2 to some extent, mainly because of the fantastic atmosphere and art style. And I liked Empire mainly because guns solve a lot of the problems this game has with AI... unless it's melee troops facing gun troops, or formation movement in huge battle lines. ;p

I'm confused, I thought beta = final game for the Battlefield series now.

Define "final game" ... because the game isn't final when they remove content for the future 5 dlc releases...

Anyway, after BF4 I will take what I get for free, but paying money for something DICE made? Not gonna happen ever again. This game is a huge pass for me.

You're in luck, DICE didn't make this. It's crap anyway, but...you know.

Well that is why I will check out the beta.. ,p
