Tablets are fun, great for kids, great to doink around with -- they are not servers, workstations, laptops or consoles. And the games play like a glorified facebook gaming machine with the occasional gem that makes good use of the tech. My kids get ALOT of use out of them, me not so much.

There's simply not much innovation in tablets, you see the same ones over and over. The nexus 10 is still one of the best all around for gaming or otherwise, and it's over 2.5 years old. PC innovation is lightspeed faster than tablets.

It's not surprising.

Only "tablet" I'm hoping gets developed anytime soon is a kindle color e-ink so I can truly replace reading from my b/w kindle onto it.

News Comments > Elite Dangerous Beta Begins

There's simply a more prevalent instant-satisfaction gimme gimme mindset, mostly among the younger gamers (just a fact, no offense to the more rational younger players :).

Back when we had to submit specs, mail agreements and write a damn resume as to why we should be accepted... if accepted - we could get kicked out if not participating enough or submitting bugs, not following through with the developers, etc. Well we learned what beta's were about the right way.

I'm fine with betas as they are these days, there's a heck of a lot more going on in the gaming space and it's harder to find and groom a niche. We do occasionally get creep devs who abandon games after funding (cubeworld comes to mind but there's many), or inept devs who can't port, etc, but the vast majority is just the need to be heard through whining.

BUT... if it weren't summer, I'd buy this beta and do what I could to help (and play!) it - I too loved elite on the c64. All bets are off after the summer tho!

I've been a huge fan of PoE, but GGG really screwed up on Invasion (after having huge success with Nemesis) and lost a ton of their playerbase while sitting in denial. They really need to nail these next leagues well and hope they can pull people back in.

GGG has always done their own thing, which is good thing. However, they've steadily ignored the majority yet make changes based on the pre-made no lifers (most who, humorously ended up quitting anyway after repeated torture by invasions pretend "you'll die no matter what" difficulty).

I'll be there again at the start of the new leagues next month, but I'll have a much shorter forgiveness period. I hope for their sake they learned from their mistakes.

I've been around for a very long time, so maybe you weren't PC gaming in the 90s. I always despised shit like securerom, safedisc, starforce, etc. Back in the days, that shit made a distinctive hit on performance, was impossible to get rid of, and forced on the media because there was no downloading alternative unless you pirated.

However Steam, I'm glad as hell for it. Single player games can be played without connections (which I don't bother with, keeping steam up allows me to see what friends are up to, join their games, chat etc), and online games it's a no-brainer positive. In an online world, I just don't care one bit if my games are verified, housed, and easily restored via... online!

I'm just not a fan of every company trying to cash in on the service like steam has, all with their own versions like Origin, uplay etc and never buy through those services if I can help it.

If you are surprised at Xbox [whatever] getting booed at quakecon, you've never been to quakecon and probably shouldn't put it on your calendar. It was, however, just a playful boo - not like people were throwing their own feces (as funny as that would have been - and SO well deserved!).

Next game I *really* want on the Wii U is the new Super Smash Bros, my kids played that to death.

Hey whatever I didn't make you post that crap about nin for no reason, take some responsibility for your actions. When you post nonsense like what I quoted and that earlier silliness you can't really complain about being moderated. The above is something I would expect from my 5 year old, you're a better poster than that.

Divinity is a pretty fun game that deserves better discussion than this and I'm sure no one clicking on this wants to read about forum vendettas.

Oh give me a fucking break man, it was an accurate observation and not an insult like 99% of the bullshit here. I stated his purpose is to troll people he has on ignore while he talks about games instead of playing them as a response - that's it, absolutely true and no calling him names, telling others to ignore him, nothing. Yet he pops into threads constantly where people he has on ignore are quoted and insults them with said bullshit.

You make your bed, fucking lie in it. How about that.

As for your ideals, I said that you think that rich people work harder than other people. Which always cracks me up, because you must find yourself incredibly lazy.

But I'll source that for you:

Most successful people work smart, or hard. Most unsuccessful people don't. There are exceptions, but that's black and white unbiased truth.

I'm not sure how you define monetary success, but I'd wager very, very few on this board are actually successful. Not in the eyes of our government's economic policy. Apparently you think we're all people that work neither smart nor hard.

Helpful hint: you aren't successful. If you aren't making at least half a million a year, at least, you aren't successful. You wouldn't be invited to Mitt Romney's fundraisers (nor to Obamas.) The economic policies that I support wouldn't negatively impact you. If you lost your job and couldn't find work for over a year, something very possible at your age and your skill level (true of nearly anyone in their late 40s and above) you could find yourself needing welfare assistance. Somehow you think you're closer to the Warren Buffets of the world than the 45 year old single mom working as a Walmart greeter and a McDonald's cashier while raising 3 kids.

You aren't. Not a single person on this site is. But that 45 year old single mom undoubtedly works significantly harder than every single person here and probably harder than every single billionaire in this country (a third of which inherited their money.)

This is gold, pure gold man. You just proved my last line that you can't "understand", and proved how absolutely out of touch you are with reality at the same time. Not successful unless you're making 500k a year, Parental duties vs career, just one laugh after another with you.


And you proved your inability to add content to a discussion.

Facts. Even basic justification for your opinions. You have none at all.

You probably don't get it. You think being poor means someone is stupid or not working hard. And you don't realize that, in the eyes of the people spending the money on the laws, you're a poor, classless nitwit. You fail to understand the meaning of "success," in the eyes of our economic policy. You fail to realize how much everything is being twisted to help the superwealthy, and you keep supporting it, because you're stupid enough to think your $70k/year is "successful."

You still stuck on that "prove it"? Just another sheep dolt and you think you've found the cryptonite that the same few keep using, snoozefest here bro it ain't working - same can be said about everyone in every post.

But if I were entertaining... What facts exactly are you seeking? You want me to scour your posts to show how you've contradicted yourself over and over again with regards to you being more pro "Capitalism" than everyone here (aside from being contradictory in many areas of your "expertise")? Go right ahead, no one gives a shit so I won't waste my time, but it certainly is there for the dedicated researcher!!

Or wait! I see... Maybe you mean the same "Facts" that you provide, where you deduce your own false "facts" about others then attempt to high-road trounce them with lame ass examples like you did in your last "gold" thread. I'll pass, I respect others time.

Not sure why Beamhole keeps bringing me up all the time and throwing out made-up ideals he thinks I posses, but it's humorous occasionally.

But that's what he does, that King of Capitalism! Just make something up, then go on a tirade about it! And it works, always the same few dopeyass sheep ready to hop on the TrollTrain!

I think about halfway through my rant I really realized I just take offense to his phrasing, because it vilifies socialism. Listen, I'm probably one of the biggest fans of capitalism on this site, but it needs to be heavily regulated.

A big fan of Capitalism Beamer? No, you're not. You are, however, a giant ball of contradiction because you have no idea what you are talking about.

Oh so NIN is off limits eh? He can come into threads and insult people he has on ignore and we can't point it out? Yet you'll let him pop into threads, add nothing but an insult, and call it good?

Un fucking believable, but par for course here.

I can quote hundreds of these snide ass comments from him:

Slightly nicer graphics have never made a game better, just prettier.

Wrong. Just wrong. It does make a game better because prettier graphics are better for immersion, which still is the #1 reason I play games.

So why does your personal preference make my opinion invalid or somehow incorrect? You play games for 'immersion', fine, I play them for distraction.

Would you tell people who prefer music based on the interplay between the instruments that they're 'wrong. just wrong' because you prefer latching onto the vocal hook?

Friends don't let friends read Quinn! Or Axis!

Why would texting hurt grammar or spelling? I don't recall any headlines ever stating that. Typing helps, if anything.

But it certainly does affect their social skills, not only by replacing face to face and voice, but also in social situations where they hunker down in their own little world oblivious to what is going on around them.
