Funny how peps want to wait for this game to go on sale , but don't have nada problem putting 1000$ or more for a pixel ship in Star Citizen , Wall guess those peps are feeling important like " We made the game" jezz

To be fair, I don't think we have anybody who is into Star Citizen for nearly that much on Blues. Based on the last couple SC threads, we do have a small number of people who are in at the base level, whatever that was.

That archer is insane!

Yeah, that's the second or third video I've seen of that particular guy, he does some amazing things. Hopefully he is training people in his style, so that level of ability isn't lost, AGAIN.


Also, Navy Railguns, David Drake was right!

News Comments > Homeworld Remastered Collection Next Month
17. Re: Homeworld Remastered Collection Next Month Jan 26, 2015, 11:32 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I loved the Homeworld series back in the day, played it far more than was probably healthy. This looks good, although I'll probably wait for a sale and/or a gog.com release.

I wonder if Homeworld Remastered still has the same mission flaws as vanilla, ie. recycle all ships at the end of a mission, next mission, very few enemy ships spawn, or vice versa, if you have a huge armada, you could get swamped instantly on some missions, namely ones toward the end where you warp in and your Mothership gets fired on within 15 seconds.

Regardless, the nostalgia is strong with this one.

Are you new to the internet? Everyone gets rape/death threats when they discuss their point of view on pretty much anything.

Even if this was true, which it emphatically isn't, surely that would be something that needs to be addressed? Why would widespread threats of death make threats of death acceptable to you? This sort of logic failure boggles the mind.

It's been pointed out repeatedly that very few people get the level and specific nature of the threats Sarkeesian and others have been receiving.

Anyway this horse is already beaten into a red paste, if you don't understand by now, you never will.

We had a lively discussion a few days ago when this broke.

Hrm, I missed that last discussion, luckily. People utterly ignoring proven science, repeatedly, drive me up the wall. It'd be amost okay if they were only hurting themselves, unfortunately this is not the case.

A measles outbreak in Disneyland, good work, anti-vaccination idiots. How embarassing, to humanity as a whole, that these CURED diseases are coming back so strongly now. It's going to take a bunch of kids getting paralyzed in the US by polio before this shit stops.

From the whining on blues lately you'd think straight white males were the victims.

How dare anybody complain about rape/death threats, or discuss their viewpoint on a video game!?!

A) We are the victims because we're all lumped in as everything that's wrong in the world when it's absolutely untrue. In spite of the fact that we're the ones who actually make the world a better place to live. And we have to deal with racism in the form of Affirmative Action, etc.

B) Faking rape/death threats for fun and profit is disgusting. If you actually believe for a second they're real I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you cheap.

Yes, it's a huge shame that no white males can get ahead in the world anywhere. <End Sarcasm> The world isn't perfect, but let's not pretend for a second you'd be better off in most circumstances being black or middle eastern, for example. People do love to feel persecuted though, that's pretty much universal. "I have it so tough because of X!"

Why do you think all the rape/death threats are fake? Seriously, consider what you are saying. Random youtube videos don't count as proof by the way. Is every single threat Sarkeesian or anybody else receives online 100% going to be carried out? Probably not, but you have no basis for saying they are all just empty threats. Get hundreds or thousands of threats a week, well good luck trying to separate the real ones from random idiots.

This game looks great, somewhere between X-Wing and Battlezone 2; I've had it in my Steam wishlist for awhile, since I heard about it in Early Access, I suppose I'll have to break down and get it now.

25% discount on Steam until the 27th, apparently. ($11.24)


*EDIT* Whoops, panbient beat me to the battlezone reference

Wow, that was fast. I guess Sony figured it made the money it was going to make.

These days, I think a lot of these type of movies make most of their money in Netflix/Amazon/Redbox fees, dvd/blu ray sales, etc.

Especially in the US, most people only go to the theatres to see the super block busters like Avengers or Episode 7. Plus, they already released it day 1 on a couple streaming services, so this isn't really a big deal, in my opinion at least.

All that said, I saw it, it's amusing in the standard Seth Rogen way. Poor choice of subject material seems pretty obvious(current, living Foreign Leader, regardless of his/her crimes), but it seems impossible that any rational person would take it seriously.

Step 1: Buy a decent standing desk, that has a good range of height adjustment.

Step 2: Put a treadmill behind the desk, turn on slow speed, walk and compute.

Step 3: Fitness!


I keep meaning to get a standing desk, but they are always at ripoff-level prices, at least as far as I'm willing to spend on a few pieces of wood and metal. I suppose it'd be pretty easy to make one if you have some woodworking/metalworking ability.

*EDIT* Hrm, seem to be some halfway decent ones for 'reasonable' prices on Amazon now: Here

This story makes me curious, what exactly does the person killing themselves repeatedly get? Just "Lolz?" Or is there some other mechanic in CoD:AW being abused here? Like dying a lot unlocks weapons or something?

Green Bay falling apart in the 4th quarter was heart breaking, I don't care for the Seahawks. Be interested to see how they do with 2 of their biggest defensive performers potentially out with injuries. New England was ruthless, they were still playing Brady long past it being necessary. Belichick is a dick haha.

Belichick never got over having his perfect season ruined by the Giants.

He plays every game without mercy, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in sports, honestly. He's probably sleeping a bit easier since the Giants are terrible and didn't even make the playoffs this year, which practically guarantees the Patriots victory.

Belichick's Patriots vs Non-Giants teams = 100% superbowl wins. Vs the Giants, 0% wins.

Also, Fish on Ectasy: Nice, another pyschoreactive chemical that doesn't break down at all in the human body, slowly gathering in our water supply. GG, humanity.

Hrm, interesting that they think there's an ISP problem somewhere, and don't think it has anything to do with double goblins dropping thousands of veiled crystals, clogging up my screen with useless crafting mats.

Diablo 3, still the best game to play while watching Netflix.

Broken mechanic, clueless developers, P2W... hopefully this game fails utterly.

Unfortunately, it involves zombies and "survival," so I am sure it'll be a huge success and more games will be made to copy it and it's micropayments.

Wow, didn't realize the graphic style was such a major stumbling block for some of you guys, Hotline Miami was actually pretty damned good. Tight twitchy gameplay, killer music, good level of difficulty.

Do these sort of ratings refusal things mean sites like gog.com cannot show the game to anybody with an Australian IP or something, or just no Australian based store can sell it?

Either way seems like it'll be no issue for people with a modicum of knowledge in Australia to get it, so no issue here.

The next phase of this story: a darkened room: Kurt Busch found dead with a dart in his neck, as the maid spins his office chair around and screams!

In a nearby trashcan lies the only clue, a dented wedding band, missing it's stone.
