News Comments > The Crew Ships; Day One Patch Released

I'm not a gear head, but I do enjoy games like I76 and the like.

This appears to not be my kind of game at all.

However... if they could let you drive around in minivan with kids in the back occasionally being annoying, at least it would be semi-realistic and a decent "simulation" for would-be parents...

Windows tablets have never and will never 'rise'. They are dead with no zombie mode in their future.

It's android and ios... sorry to disappoint there MS -- they just don't need you...

TBH 60fps is bare minimum for me, 100+ fps is where games come to life. Lack of fluidity in games is probably the most jarring thing ever.

I will never ever buy a game that cannot do atleast 60fps.

framerate is everything, otherwise people wouldn't bother upgrading their graphics cards, they'd be happy with onboard gfx.

Absolutely. I'm stuck on 120 or 144 now, but my 'threshold' has always been 80 - that's where my eyes stop noticing, more frames is just a bonus.

I don't buy any FPS be it competitive or casual that locks frames. If it's going to be consolized, don't port it it begin with... and don't be surprised when hoards of "elitist" gamers trash the fk out of it.

No need to leap over oceans to make assumptions that attempt to portray yourself in a more "tolerant" light than me -- that just makes your "conviction" appear fake and contrived.

He didn't do that, you were the one with a problem about their stance on LGBT equality.

Go lemmings go, keep leaping!

Sounds about right...

Treating your employees well and your customers like shit aren't mutually exclusive.

Also, what's wrong with tolerance and acceptance?

Didn't say they were, just stated what seems pretty obvious - their business practices.

I admit I'm disappointed, but will still hold out hope as usual for my gaming legends... Looks like Richard G and Pete M dove into the same new school pool of mediocrity and decided to stay there...

Maybe low stock for some, I found it plenty on less obvious sites - like frys, best buy, and even my local gamestop.

Anyway, not complaining, I'm glad they are selling - Wii U is by far the best "newgen" console in my book.

I call bullshit on the adapters, the wii classic controllers are better and work just as well, and the 'sold out' adapters are all over the place for $20.

Most people don't cut cords because they can't figure out or don't want to set up an HD antennae and get fully wired/wireless, or just don't care enough to.

After I was fed up -- I had only netflix for quite sometime before I setup an HD antennae, something my wife was overjoyed with since she wanted badly to keep the Olympics on in the background during the day. I only dug deep enough to figure out how to do it right for that, and now we have 20 channels, many HD that blows the cable quality out of the water.

Anyway, with so many audio and streaming services and an HD antannea, I'd never go back to cable as possibilities are endless.

This was a kickstarter - hopes and dreams don't always come true, as we all know, when you gamble with kickstarters-- if you have any concerns keep your money in your pocket no matter how much you have to waste.

This isn't some random loser dev who just decided to take the money and run. You gamble for certain aspects you expect, and if the product is close you got your money's worth.

I'm fine with no MP, it's one of the few single player sandbox games I played a ton of. If the destructible environment pans out to be kick ass, bonus.

And why does there "need" to be internet/wifi in school to begin with? So kids can text and game all day? Show me some comprehensive studies on what percentage of the internet is used for actual study and actual learning. If anything I warrant it's the opposite as they're just finding it easier to plagiarize work. And lastly, why don't the fucking parents pay for their brats? People without kids are so sick of getting screwed by the breeders all the time. Take some fucking responsibility for your progeny. You wanna' dip the stick? You pay for the oil!
You are so clueless, it boggles the mind. Broadband connectivity (wired or wireless) is essential for modern learning: for research, for educational applications perfectly customized to each student's level, for on-demand educational presentations and videos, for document creation, etc. etc. It's pretty easy to lock computers down to prevent kids from getting off task, and all schools do. It's pretty easy to lock down wi-fi so personal devices can't be used (our elementary provides the laptops the kids use). Kids study language arts at 1 grade level higher than they did in the 70s. Math is 2 grade levels higher. Computers in school are a huge part of this, and modern computers all rely on the internet for educational software. Computer labs are all monitored by teachers. Kids aren't hanging around playing CoD all day.

As for not wanting to pay for my kids, fuck you, you leech. The reason there is a modern society at all is due to public education. Put your money where your piehole is: move to a farm without electricity and plumbing and live off the land. Never use the services of a doctor, lawyer, accountant, pharmacist, dentist, vet, or any other professional. Never buy food from a store again. Never drive a car again. Never buy a computer or software again. Public education is why we have all the nice things that we do. Someone's kids provided all that, and my kids will be providing and building all of that in the future. If anything, we tax SINKs and DINKs too low since the only thing they contribute back to society is taxes. When you buy the services of any professional, you're paying for the price it costs to keep them there, not the much higher price it took to get them there. I paid for that, thank you very much. And you want to throw $10,000s more on top of it.

Further proving my argument that Cutter lacks any form of empathy and only cares about things that impact him directly.

Cutter political view flowchart:
Does it Impact Cutter - Yes: It is the single most important thing in the world
Does it Impact Cutter - No: Then it's utterly pointless and only morons care and everyone should shut up


No lie. Just look at his posts. He absolutely doesn't conform even remotely close to traditional political left/right/center. Which isn't a bad thing, but usually people tend to have their views cluster in areas, e.g., social. People that support gay marriage tend to also support abortion tend to also support feminism, etc.

Cutter? Cutter really only supports Cutter. Exclusively Cutter. The single most selfish viewpoints possible. It isn't like he doesn't care about things that don't impact him directly, he actively mocks them and anyone that supports them.

Gracious Beam, we agree for once! Twice in one thread - what the hell is going on here!?

Ya I agree amazon's "sales" tend to be nothing spectacular, they go with the model of:

Low prices all the time.
Black friday/misc sales 5-10% more sale at best.
