For something that won't break the bank, but should provide you with all the control you need for a good experience, I recommend the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS. One thing that's not evident from Amazon's photos is that the throttle and stick separate into two separate units if you want them further apart. I haven't gotten E:D yet, but Halfelf has, and he just got one of these sticks, so you might want to check with him.

Hrm thanks, that doesn't even seem too crazy, price wise, at 45 bucks. Although I thought all the good HoTaS setups were like $200 ?

Inspired by Quake 3? a top down shooter? Of course they are probably referring to the space marine bit, but this game does bring back fond memories of Robotron and Smash TV. 11 bucks, I may buy it.

It does. And your solo game is the same for multiplayer and vice versa, so your gains apply to both modes. When you choose solo you will not have PvP or any other player encounters but can play the game fully. I play it solo mostly because I'm terrible at dog fighting. If you buy a new ship, upgrade it in solo play, it will be the ship you fly in multiplayer, with same credits as solo.

That's great news, excellent design decision by those guys.

I will get this eventually, although I'm going to have to break down and buy a halfway decent joystick/throttle combo at some point.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront in Holidays 2015

Pfft. So much negativity for something that's over a year away, and will have been worked on, by that point, for almost 4 years.

It'll be a great game...eventually. I know most people here have given up on BF4, but it's playable now, and actually very enjoyable. A year's worth of patches of course, but they are actively working on improving the game with the CTE, can't really ask for much more at this point. Just realize the Frostbite engine is never going to lead to a 100-tic Counterstrike-like experience and you'll be much better off.

I am under no illusions about how buggy Battlefront could be on release, but still, I'm looking forward to running somebody over with a Tauntaun. Or an Imperial Walker. or just seeing a nice 64 player battle with the classic SW laser colors and sound effects... *drool*

I gave in and bought it, played through 2 sessions... even on easy it seems very easy to get everybody killed/your crystal destroyed. Defenses are needed, but the enemies can also just run the hell past them unless I'm missing something. Also there seems to be no way to close doors?

In spite of that, seems pretty interesting, nice music too, although yes, they have the retro/fake 8bit graphics, or at least full pixel graphics if you want to call them that. I'm not minding the art so far, it actually looks pretty good if you can get by the blockiness.

Clearly I'm on the other side of this equation, I still buy physical books(screw Kindles), and occasionally CDs/blu rays. Although I do have Netflix, I like making my own mp3s(OCD kicking in), and I'll buy a blu ray every now and then for anything I know I'll watch a dozen times, ie. Aliens, Terminator, etc.

Also there is so much else on Amazon, in terms of physical items, that this article seems a bit off base... they still had 5% GROWTH, no decline as of yet. Anytime I want to buy PC hardware, filters for an Air Conditioner, whatever, I check amazon and price compare vs Newegg, etc. and Amazon usually has competitive prices plus the whole free shipping thing.

Buying movies and CDs is definitely on the decline, which is great for me at least; I am able to pick those up for like 4-5 bucks usually on some Amazon sale.

*EDIT* Typo.

His face bothers me by all the weird looks he can make. It got downright hilarious with some of the faces he made in Star Trek.

The best physical description of Benedict Cumberbatch ever: "face like a sexy fish" - one of the authors on Cracked.com

It made me chuckle, I'm ashamed to say. But he definitely got more than his share of cheek bone.

Wow, that Black Hat Keynoter article... now those are some truly intelligent hackers. Script kiddies need not apply when you're using lasers and drones to hack a network through a scanner/printer.

Holy FUCK. This could be so awesome... although it all depends on which version of Dr. Strange they go with, aka classic 80s style, or modern Illuminati version. Unfortunately it'll probably be the latter. Still, it could be great.

Here's hoping they cast Jason Scott Lee as Wong. Donnie Yen would work too, but his English isn't great. Ugh, another Marvel movie I'm required to see.

Hrm, I've been watching this one for a few months; it looks great, and for the regular price of 13 bucks I'll probably just give in and buy it.

Although I can't remember the last time I actually successfully finished one of these rogue-like games, usually I just end up leaving piles of my corpses around.

*EDIT* Grammar.

Hrm, the graphics were pretty terrible, but I'll probably STILL buy those games and play through them again; it's been like 20 years. *sheds tear*

For that matter, I think I missed out on whatever enhanced versions were floating around, so that'll be a step up at least.

Although, nothing but rumors so far that it's LucasArts... watch it be somebody else entirely.

That's an extremely interesting article by Assange. Too bad everyone on here is burning all their energy on Gamergate.

Hrm, sad to see another circular Gamergate article on here, but I did find it interesting that 4chan has started to ban some Gamergaters? Now hopefully that will make those people sit back and re-evaluate their thought processes.(In the comments not the article itself)

Any chance for a real discussion is long gone, it's just fanatics yelling at each other now, with moderates getting drowned out in the noise.

Ah, good. I'm liking this return to demos for new games, if you have confidence in your product, let people avoid any possible buyer's remorse.

Although now the question is, play the original (GoG version) first, or try this and potentially be spoiled graphically? The horns of a dilemma!
