Good to see solid reviews for a Macheen for Pigs, mang. I'll probably give 'er a whirl around Halloween.

Best played while listening to Pink Floyd's "Animals" album.

I take it this has turned out to be a giant problem?

Not at all. It's alright.

lurand, you should become a game producer. You make it all sound so easy, because everything is already there. Go ahead, mate, and good luck!

But no matter how good the space sim is, the illusion of actually flying in the awesome vastness of the universe is quickly removed by the realization of it being nothing but a few 3D models surrounded by a high-rez texture that's "the infinity of space". Adding depth to this by making planets to land on, with FPS content, makes the magic that much more magnificent. To complain about it is to complain about a loving relationship with your partner containing sexual intercourse. w00t!

So, you would like to have chess being a part of poker games, because otherwise poker wouldn't be like "a loving relationship with your partner containing sexual intercourse"? Hilarious. Was "X-Wing" a bad game, because "Dark Forces" was not a part of this game? What the hell are you talking about?!

I know I've criticised this game before, but I actually want it to succeed. I'd like to fly in space and relive Privateer/Freelancer, mostly alone in single player. Then again, I wonder whether they can pull all of this off with all the additions to the game. I'd rather have them concentrate on the flight game, then - maybe as an add-on? - on FPS shooter elements. Please don't suck, and even more, please be published some day!

I'm downloading Bioshock: Infinite as we speak, and heard a lot of good things about it. Didn't it sell well enough to keep the team to work on a successor?

Except that this attack would be totally stupid. They're mostly all bad guys in this civil war. Defeat Assad, and the islamists (Taliban, Al Quaeda, and other nutjobs) take over. They're already fighting the FSA, i.e. the rebels that started it all. A military strike would help NOBODY. This is not a good guys vs. bad guy conflict, best to stay out of this.

I believe the idea is that they broke with the Geneva Protocol, and if you don't enforce it, it's useless. The problem in Syria is that both sides are supposedly using it so any strike against one side or the other is just an excuse to give the other side a helping hand. Are these strikes supposed to take out production, storage facilities or delivery means? So far it just sounds like an excuse to attack the Syrian government without specifically addressing the actual problem.

It's also got to do with Russia having a naval base in Tartus, Syria. It's their easy access to the Mediterranean, and the islamists following Assad would most likely throw them out of the country. So it's not about helping one side in the civil war, but about blocking the Russian access to the Mediterranean. It's just another game of global power chess.

It is a more than a small gaming pity that Defense Grid 2 will be a SteamDRM exclusive, it makes it difficult FOR ME to give the developers money.

Fixed it for you. Most people have no problem with Steam, although it is a DRM system, but not a really annoying one.

Is this like 3 updates in 3 days? Starting to feel a bit of fatigue.

Yeah, it's like they do a public overkill to get a lot of money quickly.

We still have a ways to go before we have achieved the goal of being completely community funded

How much do they need? $50,000,000? Does anybody know?

Watch the miniseries, then the other seasons. The show is good. Sometimes even VERY good.

Fixed it for you. No need to thank me. Best sci-fi series of this millennium, although some episodes are a bit lame.

So if I get good at this, do you think I can get a job with the Army?

Sure, just shoot everything that moves. The whistleblowers that could tell about it will be court martialed, but nothing will happen to you. The Army is not about witness protection, but about offender protection. Is that in the game, too?

if media violence leads to "the real thing", does e.g. NASCAR on tv lead to the lot of victims killed and hurt by speeding cars? Just asking...

Just in time so they can put a start menu back into Win8/Tiles1. Although I'm very happy with my classic start menu, and I haven't seen the tiles for months now.

Games that come to mind that were way more disappointing:
SWTOR - Haven't played it yet
Dead Space 3 - Haven't played it yet
Dead Island - Played it and it was WAY better than Diablo III: The Auction House!
