Batman kills people instead of just beating them within an inch of their life and leaving them crippled for life. How else do you explain the militarized batmobile? This is Punisher style Batman.
The hostile tanks and helicopters don't have humans in them, but are remotely controlled.

Loved JC2. 48 hours played according to my steam stats. Looking forward to JC3. The "buy more" notification does not get me worried about P2W microstransactions. The JC2 black market vendor was pretty much useless though, especially the vehicles, so I hope they've improved on that.

News Comments > Frozen Synapse Prime This Month
1. Re: Frozen Synapse Prime This Month Nov 2, 2014, 18:23 starttimartti
 
Well based on the trailer on the steam page, it looks like sort of a HD version of the old Frozen Synapse, using their upcoming NFL-ish-game's engine. Like in good Blue's News fashion, I must talk about it negatively.

A) From seeing the trailer once, I say I liked the old graphics more, but, eh, it could be nostalgia.
B) The Frozens Synapse guys haven't been too big on updating their game. I still have games that are in a draw state on my FS account and what that means is that if you or your opponent decides not to lose, they can just stop playing and it'll end up in stalemate where neither one of you will win/lose.

CDEFG) Back in the day I did play FS for tens of hours and got my money's worth, but eeeeh... it's B'sNs, so I gotta be negative, right?

News Comments > X-Wing & TIE Fighter on GOG.com?
43. Re: X-Wing & TIE Fighter on GOG.com? Oct 28, 2014, 08:51 starttimartti
 
I could see myself playing the TIE Fighter again. The CD version of it was in 640x480 resolution, unlike the X-Wing that was in 320x240 or 320x200. The cockpits looks nice and through the window it'll be 95% of black space anyways.

http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/tie_091.png a screenshot of the CD version.

I had the CD versions back in the day but the speech in those games came off the CDs and because of that it kept revving the disc up and down and up and down constantly. *WHIRRRRR*. This time that should not be the case.

And the xbone is still supposed to be running at 720p? Either that can't be the case or these recommended specs aren't legit or maybe the PC version is the same as the 360/PS3 one. /shrug

I don't like Thunderf00t because he's rude. But most of the time he is right... but he just picks easy targets and is rude.

For feminism/sjw, the two gaming-wise things that rub me the wrong way and I can think off the top of my head are Zoe Quinn and Jade R-something-of-Assassin's-creed-fame. Both times the headlines were "there's a game... made by a GIRL!" and that's just not the right way to sell me the game.

"Woman Puts Deus Ex On Computer Chip In Her Hand"

She has the steam key for Deus Ex in her chip. That's like 12 bytes of data, not the whole 700 megabytes of game data.

All the free weekend etc. games automatically show up in my games library along all the games that I've bought in the past. There I just click on the INSTALL button and, woooooossh, away I go.

Between this and PS4 freebies... Why even buy games anymore?
Just to be clear... the steam ones also do disappear from my games list after the weekend too.

I don't think I've ever downloaded a free weekend game from steam. The download still takes an hour or two if I'm lucky and the odds of me finishing the game during the weekend are slim. I shall not allow them to bait me into buying their games!

Silly question on free weekends for games like this?
Is it just the 'download demo' that you grab?

I tried following the 'click here to download the game for free' links in the steam client last night and it always went to the store page.

By "hi-res," does that mean they're redoing the prerendered backgrounds?

Based on those screenshots, no they are not. This will be another "one of those" hi-res versions.

They still haven't implemented the 2 week timeout that they have been promising for years. If you are about to lose, you can just stop playing that particular match and it will not progress and you will not lose and the opponent won't win.

I think the matches would go a lot faster...
I think they said that there is/will be an option for timed turns, so you'll only have a set amount of seconds to make your moves... but I couldn't find a setting for it in game, so I cannot confirm or deny it.

There are many other little irritating things in game that should have been fixed.

I do have 48 hours played, so I did get bang for my buck, but it could have been grrreat if they had kept fixing and improving the game.
