It's weird I just re-watched Thunderdome twice about two weeks ago, then this trailer appears. Just don't know about Mad Max without Mel. Policeman

I thought the trailer looked interesting enough, definitely more cash this time around then the original trilogy, so overall production quality should be decent. And Charlize Theron... I'll probably see the new MM, if not in the theater then definitely on Netflix.

As for it not being Gibson, that's a good thing, to me. Anytime I see Mel Gibson now all I can hear is his insanely racist rants.

Sigh, George RR Martin. He's going to pull a Robert Jordan on his readers, it's pretty much a given at this point.

I have no doubt whatsoever that women receive more harassment in the game industry, especially since a large portion of it can be online and somewhat anonymous. People are assholes, and usually even bigger assholes online. More than a few frustrated idiots will eagerly jump to attack anything that isn't a christian white male if they can remain anonymous. It's not right, but what can you do, quit doing a job you supposedly love because of some shitheads?

Honestly I think most, if not all game developers should step WAY back from any sort of Forum/End User type interactions, male or female. You'll get a few good comments and a boatload of abuse. It's just how the internet is right now. Any forum for any game I've ever played, once the actual developers start posting, instead of through intermediaries, they eventually start getting flamed or harassed or mocked, blocking out any meaningful discussion with troll posts.

I can't speak for others, but I personally dislike DayZ because it's the poster child for:

1) Survival Horror pk fest games. This may be a plus for some, of course.
2) Unfinished Alpha/beta level projects that are being sold as retail.
3) Zombie saturation/overexposure in games.
4) being an extremely buggy game, partially due to 2, but also due to Engine choice.

It also will probably not actually be finished in our lifetimes, but let's give the developers the benefit of the doubt. If people are actually enjoying DayZ in spite of all that, hey, great. I know plenty of people who regret their purchase though. I played the freeware mod version and just wasn't that interested.

...stop buying DayZ, humanity. It's not even amusing anymore.

It is good to see Divinity:OS and Wolfenstein up there though.

I liked the Uncharted games, but this will be some sort of ripoff/homage Inception, or at least coming full circle, from serials to movies to tv shows to games to movies.

Raiders of Ghost City /Allan Quartermain etc. shamelessly ripped off into Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark, into Uncharted.


Don't get me wrong, I'll put it in my Netflix queue. It's just too bad Claudia Black is too old for Hollywood to be in it.

It's not so much of a 4 vs 8 affix issue as it is an overvaluation of weapon sockets. A weapon socket is so valuable that any weapon without a socket is essentially garbage, that's why everyone rerolls a stat into a socket as is. Ramalandi's gift should help that, but the real issue is 1 weapon socket vs 2 weapon sockets.

I don't get why they don't just allow us to roll 2 sockets on a 2H and be done with it.

I haven't looked closely at legendary gems that much but I can only imagine this only exacerbates the issue.

Exactly, sometimes it seems like Blizzard doesn't even play their own game. Put 2 sockets in 2handers, and there is no issue.

Legendary gems, currently, can only be put into rings and amulets, so there shouldn't be any 1h/2h issues for legendary gems.


I'll probably play a bit more after patch 2.1, just to try it, but all my game time has been Divinity:OS, BF4, and Tower Wars. Clockwork gatling cannon? Yes.

According to the article, apparently you occasionally run into some other people during your playthrough. I assume you don't actually deal with the Alien until the end or close to it, and apparently not in a satisfying Pulse Rifle oriented way.

Of course it isn't really that type of game, but oh well. I'm still missing that cancelled Aliens RPG from a few years ago, let alone a decent FPS Aliens game.

Armchair scientist strikes again!

http://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/dwq/nutrientschap12.pdf

Interesting, I admit I've never done much research aside from being really pissed off and a bit worried after repeatedly getting letters from my water company, to the tune of: "sorry, you shouldn't have been drinking the water without boiling it last month!" or their annual water reports where they failed EPA water standard tests for fertilizer runoff, bacteria, heavy metals, medical type molecules etc.

Apparently there is a nice middle ground of dissolved minerals, sans industrial and biological contaminants I should be aiming for. Because of the above, I bought a water filtration system for the house a few years back, so I guess I'll start getting some gatorades or vitamin waters in the short term.

Screwed no matter what you do, apparently.

"Ultra pure" water cannot kill you. Who the hell is responsible for that pseudo science? No, it does not leech all the minerals from your body. No, you do not need the trace amounts of minerals in the "regular" water just to live. Almost all your minerals are supplied by food.

I'm not sure who David Rees is, but at the very least some qualified scientist at their lab should have just drank some of the water and demonstrated the ability to BE ALIVE afterwards. The PR people should have each drunk a gallon of their ultra pure water on camera, sheesh.

Pseudo-science is slowly killing humanity.

Lol! There is no way this is a real game, clearly this is either a massive fraud, or very cruel psychological experiment.

That restocking a lake with fish, from a plane... that seems fatal(?) for the fish? At least some of them? Maybe a helicopter would be a better idea, mountain men.

Well, After Reset's Kickstarter at least seems to have all the correct buzzwords and influences, Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, Planescape Torment, Fallout 1 and 2.

According to their webpage they at least have some artists and one programmer.

Total games made before this, zero. Good luck to them, assuming this isn't a scam. I will not be supporting this kickstarter.

*EDIT* Also, picking "Richard Nixon" as your alias does not exactly inspire confidence.

Hrm, looks very pretty, but the control system seems like it'd just piss me off to no end. I couldn't even make it through the demo of DA2, and this appears to be worse.

I may be officially out of the target demographic for Bioware games.

Unless there is some option they are not showing, where you can pull WAY back/up, and have more of a traditional top down/isometric view of the action?

Anyway, Divinity:OS, Pillars of Eternity, Tides of Numenera, etc. there's still hope.
