Someone skipped classes on metric...
[...]

1k = 1 kilo = 1E3 = 10^3 = 1000
1M = 1 Mega = 1E6 = 10^6 = 1000000
1G = 1 Giga = 1E9 = 10^9 = 1000000000
1T = 1 Tera = 1E12 = 10^12 = 1000000000000
1P = 1 Peta = 1E15 = 10^15 = 1000000000000000

[...]
So you're going to completely disregard my other post?
Fine, be a republican douchebag.

M vs. Roman Numeral M. So this is the type of argument we get here when a game comes out that runs great and works great on the PC.

It would be strange to mix Roman and Arabic numerals.
Something like 2M would make no sense, you'd need to use MM.
In fact I've never seen that those two are being used simultaneously as it does not make any sense.
M for Mega, however, is a prefix and just stands for 10^6 which is perfectly fine.

M is NOT an abbreviation for Million. That would be "mil."

M is however the roman numeral for Thousand. k is also accepted as it is the abbreviation for kilo, which = thousand.

The only reason M is socially accepted is because there is no easy to for people to do M with a - above it. Socially Acceptable does not equal correct. So I really don't care how the Financial Times does it, it's technically wrong if they are using M as the abbreviation for Million.

Roman Numeral for a Million is M with a - above it, which indicates it's multiplied a thousand times.

Even the lawyer gets to be wrong today.

I always thought like that is taught in maths on the other side of the Atlantic ocean. Oh well, wrong again.


Read and weep. Unless you have me on ignore. (which is probable)
I can assure you, though. This is not a difficult concept.
You might even say that it is quite common.

So, is there a way to buy it direct from the devs or from another platform? Because Steam is DRM.

It doesn't look like that. When you go to their page and click on the preorder button it redirects you to the steam-page.

Awesome! I don't usually try demo's but in this case I will in order to determine if I want to spend 27 bucks on the preorder.

Exactly my thoughts.
I was kinda interested in it but was not sure whether to buy it.
When I saw TotalBiscuit's WTF today I really wished that I could play and try it out; and here's my chance!

I don't even remember the last time I played a demo.

"Looks grim to get a release out on 8th. We need more testing, one day is not enough. And we never release on fridays [sic]... I'll keep you posted."

Ah, lying through his teeth so he can postpone a release by making the original release date sound ridiculous.
Kudos for following in your bigger peers' footsteps.
Don't worry, though, I'm sure most will think it was a "honest mistake".

Interestingly, this footage looks to be taken from the PC version of the game (as indicated by the keyboard button prompts). Showing off the PC version of multiplatform games seems to be an increasingly prevalent trend these days. Hopefully this results in better PC ports.

So why does it look like it's being played with a gamepad then? :/

Brilliant. And from a technical side this game is a fantastic cross platform experience. The game plays identical to the console 360 version I started on but I have options to improve the experience in many ways.

I'll be honest, and I'll probably be flamed for this (and/or ignored by people)...

After a couple of hours, when I decided "I'm definitely going full stealth with this"

I decided to plug in my XBox 360 controller *GASP*

Playing stealthily/slowly meant I didn't need twitch reflexes. I could slowly aim for the head with the tranq gun or hit "b" to melee or use the stun-gun.

Everything worked just fine... interactions, talking trees/menus, movement, etc. It was actually a nice experience.


Now, if I play again as a violent rampage... I'll probably go back to Mouse+Keyboard for the twitch and the quicker head shots. But even with the controller, my occasional gun-fights with the bosses went fine. I avoided Typhoon until the last battle-area so my first batch of boss fights were 'nades and shotgun.

I understand that you CAN do this...

...I just can't fathom WHY you would.

I asked myself the exact same thing.

Truly epic. I love German.

Those are not the correct translations, though.

I predict the Monday announcement will be for DLC. I'd prefer a patch that lets you turn off the radar, though. That thing is so ridiculously overpowered, it renders almost all of the stealth augmentations useless.

We will see about that. Just making the player model huge, sticking bugs guns on it, making a fancy HUD and giving it inertia doesn't make it necessary a MECH game.
I'm curious about how it plays in the end and will definitely give it the benefit of the doubt but on the other hand I'm not really getting my hopes up.

And there will be people who swear that what they just took is not a placebo. Yes, you use that, doesn't mean someone else cannot say it's snake oil because it's useless.
Furthermore you did nothing to disprove the fact that comparing Ford to Jobs is utter bullshit and reeks of fanboyism and/or a lack of a intelligence to discern someone with real ides from some public figure.
